Affiliate programs can be great if your website deals with the same products or services that your provider offers. Although this may cut into your profits, so choose a reputable affiliate program to join.
E-commerce is selling your goods or services over the internet. Don't be afraid of this. Lots of small sites use e-commerce and do quite nicely. Consider this, you make crafts at home and sell them at your local flea market, crafts show, etc. Now think of how many potential customers are online, everyday! Yes you can market your product on the internet. This also applies to selling on eBay and other online auction sites. Some people use dropshipping to sell online which is perfectly legal and a great way to start a business if you don't have much money to invest in your home based business.
You may also freelance. Which is offer your services to clients for a contact position. Although this is not a full time job , you will be working for those clients as a sub-contractor. You can write articles, take pictures, design webpages, or a number of other things.
You can succeed at a home based business, but it will take work. Don't be fooled by get rich schemes and scams. Do your research and your work at home business will flourish.
