Still stuck at your day job? Tired of commuting to a prison cell cubicle or life-sucking “career”? Need a vacation? Two weeks is hardly ever enough.
You’re not alone.
Today, there are millions of people stuck in the chains of the corporate world, looking for a way out. But without any time, extra money, how can you escape?
You already know the answer. You’ve heard it plenty before but you keep putting it off.
There are millions of new online business owners escaping their 9-5 every year. They are checking out of the corporate prisons that keep them stuck in one place, bringing in one check every two weeks, and spending most of their day at a place they hate. Almost everyone has a breaking point, but some never escape before the end. But with the ever-growing opportunities and ways to make money online in the world today, it is easier than ever.
Here are 3 ways you can start an online business today so you have the freedom to travel the world, run an online store that brings in five or six figures within a couple of years, and start living the life that many people like you are experiencing today by living life on their terms.
1) Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is one of the best (and semi-passive) ways that hundreds of thousands of people are taking advantage of the online business. It’s very simple. You pick a niche (usually something you’re passionate about or know a lot about). You make a website, and post content, information, how-to’s, and keep pumping out info consistently until you build up a large audience of people. Then you flip the switch, simply turn on advertisements and boom.
Visitors to your site buy the products you recommend through blogs or ads and you start bringing in “passive income”. It takes a long time to build up traction (sometimes a few years) but it’s a great way to get started with the online world (and some stick to it for years, bringing in thousands).
2) Drop Shipping
Drop Shipping is an interesting one. It started to take off around 2014. The way it works is quite simple. You pick a niche. Make an online store (through Shopify or WordPress). Then you contact a supplier, put their products on your website, and people buy them from you.
When an order comes in, you pass the order to your supplier and they ship the product directly to your customer. It’s a win-win-win. Your customer is happy because they received their product from your site, your supplier is happy because you brought them more business, and you are happy because you didn’t lift a finger (except when you fired off that email to your supplier). The only issue is, the profit margins are very low because your supplier is fronting the cost to ship it (plus, they give the better pricing to retailers who can buy inventory at a bulk price up front). So you end up making 5-10% profit margins.
So what’s working in 2019?
Affiliate marketing can take years. Drop Shipping has low-profit margins (and increasing competition with every year).
What’s the solution?
3) Become a Direct to Customer Online Retailer
You can work in the health and fitness industry which is dominating the direct sales industry. Unlike drop shipping where you don’t really know the quality of products you are selling, often from China, you can offer a proven product called Isagenix which includes an elaborate array of nutritious supplements (perfect for anyone in the health and fitness industry).
The best part is? You can do everything online. You buy the products at a wholesale discount from Isagenix and cut out the middle man by selling directly to your customers. Plus, like drop shipping, the products ship directly to customers, except… The profit margins are way better and you can start making money within a week.
Isagenix has allowed hundreds of people to quit their jobs and start living the life of their dreams. In fact, the company has made over 100 millionaires. This is insane. Most companies have a couple of owners or corporate executives who cash in on the big bucks while everyone else is making peanuts, but with Isagenix, the income potential is available for those who work hard. But don’t worry, you become a partner with Isagenix which means you don’t get a petty paycheck every two weeks like your current job. It’s simple: the more effort you put in, the more money you will make, with no limitations.
It’s not an easy job, doing direct sales (just like any other above mentioned methods of being a digital nomad), but it offers greater benefits because it’s a system that actually works – and has worked for people over and over again.
But, doing sales? That’s insane. What if I mess up my words? Well, that’s the beauty of having an online business. You get to do all the work from behind your laptop (and do it from wherever you want). It’s the age we’re living in. No longer are people having to bust their balls knocking on doors and running around like chickens with their heads cut off, yelling in the streets to sell their products.
Did you know more people have become billionaires in the last 10 years than the last 50 years before then? It’s because of the internet and the insane opportunities it has created for those looking to jump into the business.
But you’ve never sold anything, nor have you wanted to ever be a sleazy salesman right? They have such a negative reputation. That’s right. Many salespeople have a negative reputation because they scammed someone or sold a faulty product. The reason they are the ones to blame because they are the messenger (Ever heard the phrase, “Don’t shoot the messenger”?
It’s hard not to shoot them to when some people represent such faulty products that don’t work). It’s funny that you never hear of the guys behind the scenes who built those faulty products get in trouble. But the reason the salespeople take the heat in those situations is that they are the ones who are willing to take the risk, to take a chance. And the reality is, with high risk, comes high reward – which is why salespeople often get six-figure salaries just by putting in a decent effort.
So what happens when you combine a low-risk business with high rewards? You get an unfair advantage. But, how can you be sure this product actually works… That people will benefit from it? Well, it is nearly impossible for a business to consistently break records, and build loyal, dedicated customers if it isn’t working. That’s the beauty of a successful business. They prove their value to the world by having a proven track record, with loyal brand ambassadors and dedicated users.
Take Apple for instance… You are either on team iPhone or team Android. Did you notice that one team is a single company and the other includes LG, Samsung, Blackberry, etc.?) This is the effect of market dominance, which is what Isagenix is achieving today. And the best part is… it works. People don’t buy this product just to look good and lose weight (though most benefit from this), they buy it because their health is all they have at the end of the day.
Life is short and full of countless opportunities. Good ones come and go and it’s up to you to decide whether you’re going to escape your 9-5 and start living life on your terms, making the income you deserve and living where you want to live. Millions have escaped in 2018. Millions more are going to achieve their freedom in 2019. The question is, are you going to be one of them, or are you going to let life pass you by this year?
