The majority of people have an internet connection, which means that just about anybody can utilize this tool and have the internet basically pay for their mortgage, car, college tuition, or even a luxurious holiday. You don’t need to be a technological genius either, all you need to do is know how to work the mouse and keyboard. We all know that the perfect online business would be simple to start, need little time, money, or effort to thrive, and be easily maintained. Not forgetting that it also needs to suit you! Here’s some inspiration for online businesses you can start in 24 hours:

Start an eBay Business

Starting an eBay business is fairly straight forward, and a very quick way to make some cash online. Simply go through your stuff, find things that you don’t need or want, and set up an ad for it. If your friends and family have items they want to sell, but can’t be bothered, you could offer to do it for them for a commission, too! Obviously, you aren’t always going to have items that you want to sell, you need to find products that you can sell over and over again if you want this business to work. The most successful sellers specialise in things like cell phone covers, dog grooming kits, and sunglasses – very specific products.

Offer Odd Jobs On Fiverr

Ecommerce Store

If you’ve got a reliable wholesale source for a product you’d like to sell, you could start up your own Ecommerce store. You need a few things in place before you start though, like a great web designer, credit card merchant account with a bank or PayPal, a business plan, and Ecommerce managing software like that offered by Circle Commerce.

Affiliate Marketing

Some people say that this is lazy because it doesn’t even require you to have a physical product, try to sell anything, or even speak to a customer. To put it simply, you can get paid referral commission for sending people to sites that are set up to pay affiliate fees once a sale is made – or in some cases, after a simple click! The vendor does all of the hard work, while you simply get the cash. You might want to choose affiliates based on who pays the most, but the most engaging way to do it is to choose products that you feel passionate about. You’ll need to do a lot of research to work out how viable the market is, so get started if this sounds like your thing!


If you enjoy communicating about a particular subject specifically, then you could have a great chance of financial success by using things like AdSense and affiliate marketing. Make sure you have something unique and interesting to say, and you could go far!
