Online Business Models

Online Business Models

Online business, like conventional business comes with a many different business models, styles and flavors. Generally just as a conventional business model is the way a company makes money, creates value and aims to achieve its vision and mission, an online business model is similar. Even the online business policies and processes can be said to be a part of the business model.

A conventional business model is not only about how the company makes money but is also about how it leverages key business partnerships, treats its employees, plays important part of the business. An online business model can be the same or similar as in inbound marketing as an online marketing method.


An Internet marketing business model should be more than simply a method of making money on the internet for its user. Other important consideration should be a part as well.


There are some standards that have proven very effective for internet marketers, such as Amazon, and others that are less used but still lucrative. People are also creating more opportunities daily to make money on the internet.


As many offline business models there are you are likely to find a similar online model.

Although there are many internet business models not all are equal. Choosing the right method for your specific online business should get serious thought since each model demands different skillsets and time commitments to be effective.


Not every model will fit you or match your specific business needs and goals. Besides that, you will find that different online business models will be more attractive to you the more experience you get as an online marketer.

Some Types Of Online Business Models

The Information Product Online Business Model

You may also want to create your own products. There are many different digital products that someone could use to make money. You could write an eBook and promote it yourself, or even sell it on Amazon.

You could create a video presentation course on any topic you choose and sell it for a large amount of money.

You can even create audio products that people can download and listen to in their car. In addition, you can put these together to create a lucrative package.

Selling your own products is advantageous because it allows you to charge whatever you want, and you are in total control of the content. Plus, the customer is yours; they are not just passing through like they would if you were an affiliate site.

Blogging As An Online Business Model

Next, there is blogging. Blogging is something that nearly every major company does on their website and there is a really good reason for that – it works. There are several reasons that someone might start a blog for commercial products and services: first, it builds credibility.

If people read a blog post about the industry and you know what you are talking about, then they are much more apt to buy something from you. The second major advantage is that it builds the number of keywords that you’re indexed in the search engines for, which means more traffic.

Finally, it brings visitors to your blog through their own volition. If someone reads your blog and subscribes to your RSS feed, they could come and revisit whenever you create a new post.

In addition, if they commented on a post and someone responds to it, they might come back and read more content – and possibly even convert to a customer.

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is the first internet marketing business model we’ll be discussing. Have you heard of the website Clickbank? Clickbank is a well-known place where affiliates can find products to promote. Clickbank is by no means the only website that offers this service, but they are probably the biggest and most well known.

When you do affiliate marketing:

  • you get the customer to visit your site
  • you use your sales page to convince them to buy
  • then you send them to the seller’s website with your affiliate ID attached.

This means that when they buy the product, you get a commission.
The exact amount of the commission varies with each product, but it can be a substantial amount of money.

Earning Potential: $10,000+/month
Startup Costs: $100+
Time Requirement: Medium
Passive: Yes

Amazon Affiliate

The next model that we’re going to discuss is the Amazon affiliate program. The reason that the Amazon program isn’t lumped in with the other affiliate marketing programs listed above is simple: it’s so good that it deserves its own section. Amazon has everything that you could possibly want listed on their website.

It doesn’t matter what product you are looking for, Amazon almost certainly has it. The great thing is: if you send someone to Amazon to buy a product that they were looking for anyway, Amazon pays you a commission. 


All you have to do is figure out how to get people to your page, determine what products they are interested in, and then send them onto Amazon to buy that product.

Earning Potential: $10,000+/month

Amazon FBA (Fulfilment By Amazon)

Amazon FBA (Fulfilment By Amazon) is a service provided by Amazon that will handle the storage and delivery of inventory that you are selling through the site. That means that you can work as a reseller – buying products from Alibaba wholesale and then selling them for more – without ever needing to deal with logistics, storage, packaging, or other complications. In other words, it means you can start selling real products and making real money, without needing a huge amount of investment capital, a physical premise, or anything else that might hold you back.

Amazon FBA is very simple, but at the same time is a very powerful and can take your business to the next level for very low costs. Now anyone can sell amazing products.


In order to sell through Amazon FBA, there is a simple process. First, you will need to find the product that you want to sell. As mentioned, you can do this through Alibaba, which you can think of as “Amazon for the sellers.” Search, and you’ll find endless items listed with per unit prices and minimum orders. That means you can buy 50 dumbbells and sell them on at double the price (this is called keystone pricing).

Software or SaaS

Software-as-a-service or SaaS. SaaS is a new business model compared to some of the others listed here. It involves charging someone a monthly fee to use your software.

Of course, it’s a no-brainer that you first have to have some useful software to sell. But if you can create something useful that people will pay for, you will be able to make money each month from all of your customers.

Some of the biggest SaaS services out there include Microsoft Office 365, Adobe’s monthly subscription fee to use their suite of products and several others.

One of the best ways to use this business model is to provide someone something that they can use to make money online, such as a keyword research tool or an article rewrite tool.

eBay

eBay allows you to auction your new or used products online. Anyone can set up an account with eBay and set up an auction to sell their products. There are already many powersellers on eBay who are earning substantial income.

Drop Shipping

The next model that we’re going to discuss is drop shipping. Drop shipping is very similar to retail in the way that it works. You (as the retailer) buy a product for a wholesale cost, then mark it up and sell it to the consumer. However, the difference with drop shipping is that when you are a retailer, you normally have to pay for the products upfront and then hope that they
sell.

When you do drop shipping, you do not pay for the product until someone actually orders it.

If you want to see an example of a good drop shipping business model, all you have to do is look at Createspace, which is now owned by Amazon. If you write a novel, for example, you can upload it to Createspace, and when someone orders a paperback copy of your book, then and only then is it printed and shipped out.

Lead generation

How about starting a lead generation business? Lead generation is a necessary service in the internet marketing world.

People that have products and service to sell need people to sell to, and people that can gather leads for those salespeople can make a lot of money.

Lead generation can be done in several different ways. You might even classify affiliate marketing as lead generation, although generally when you gather leads you don’t have to work nearly as hard to sell the product. Instead, you are just sending the person through to another site.

You can also generate leads in the form of email addresses. If you can collect a few thousand legitimate email addresses, there are companies out there that will buy them.

Apps

The next internet marketing business model we’ll discuss is apps. Apps never used to be included in the internet marketing model, but they have become one of the most effective ways to make money online these days. Apps are mobile programs that accomplish a specific purpose.

There are generally three types of apps out there: free apps, free apps with in-app purchases and premium apps (which also sometimes have in￾purchases. In addition, there can be two kinds of premium apps – ones that you pay for just once and monthly subscription apps that you keep paying each month to use.

You don’t to be an app developer to be able to make money from this business model; you just have to have a great idea and then hire an artist and developer to create the app for you.

Ecommerce Websites

Next, we’ll cover ecommerce websites. Ecommerce websites should not be a mystery to anyone, since nearly everyone shops online these days. An ecommerce website is simply a website that sells products or services.

Usually, these are products that you have purchased yourself (or in many cases created) so it is different from both affiliate sites and drop shipping in that regard.

However, drop shipping sites and many affiliate sites can be considered ecommerce sites if you use the broader definition.

You can either build your own ecommerce website or there are plenty of sites like Etsy, WordPress templates, Shopify and a whole lot more to help you create a website to sell online.

Ecommerce websites do take a bit more work than some of these other models, because you have to be constantly updating your site, marketing it and fulfilling orders, but it can also be a lot more lucrative.

Next important step we will examine is choosing the right online business model for you.

It is the responsibility of the service provider to provide access to the application. security, availability, and performance.
