10 Part Time Internet Business Ideas

Starting a part time internet business from home is one way to to help you earn more money in the current economic climate.

If you already have a job or stay at home to look after your children you probably want to do this on a part time basis. In this article we will give an overview of 10 different part time internet business ideas!

1. Provide a service online for something you have a talent for. Web design is always needed. So is installing a blog, graphic design and search engine optimization.

There are many internet marketers who do not have time to do everything for themselves so they are keen to oursource things. It is possible to make a good income by providing these sorts of services on a part time basis.

2. Sell things on eBay. EBay is still very popular and is an excellent way of making some additional cash in your spare time. Virtually anything can be bought and sold on eBay which makes it possible for you to develop a home business of your own.

3. Start a drop in day care center. Drop-in daycare is interesting in that people do not always know in advance when they might want to do something without their kids. Making yourself available when parents need you most is a great way to make money part time from the comfort of your own home.

4. You could offer tutoring for children who need some extra help wiht their school work. You could specialize in an area that you are talented in such as English or History.

5. Create portraits for families. If you have a talent for painting there is a never ending supply of potential customers for your talents.

6. Set up a scrap booking business. Most people have pictures piled in boxes that need to be neatly organized and you can get paid doing it for them.

7. Do you like pets? Offer to walk, groom, feed, and provide companionship or other things an owner needs help with.

8. Start a resume service. There are more people job hunting at the moment than there has been for a long time and a lot of them do not know how to write a resume.

9. Become a blog writer. There are thousands of blogs online that need someone to help add content to them.

10. Start your own website in a niche that you are interested in or passionate about. Getting paid to sell other people's products in a niche you have an interest in is a great way to make extra money.

As you can see you're only limited in the types of part time internet business ideas you can come up with. If you can solve people problems by filling a need you can get paid to do it.

6 Mistakes that Internet Marketing Newbies Make

An Internet newbie is an affectionate term given to a new person trying to make money on the Internet. We were all Internet newbies at one time. However successful people advance beyond that initial phase and do not continue to make the same mistakes over and over.

Here are six of the most common mistakes that newbies make online. You must get past these if you want to become a successful Internet marketer!

1. They do not spend time educating themselves. Since none of us were born Internet marketers we must learn how to become one.

The majority of internet marketing is not difficult to learn, but things do tend to progress very rapidly on the internet. Learning how to become successful, and keeping up with the changes, requires that you educate yourself on an ongoing basis.

2. They do not build a list. Having a targeted list of emails that you can follow up with is an asset that is worth taking the time to build.

Internet newbies make the mistake of not building a list and wasting valuable traffic every day. One of the best ways to become successful in internet marketing is to build a targeted list.

3. They do not get enough targeted visitors to their website. This is probably one of the most difficult things to do.

It is a competitive business we are all in and meaningful traffic is the only way to make money. Most newbies never achieve a level of traffic that will allow them to make enough money to stay in business.

4. They use the company provided website. This is true for newbies who join home business opportunities, network marketing businesses, or who become affiliate marketers.

The main problem with this is that the majority of your competitiors are using the exact same website. Plus it doesn't allow you to do things such as build a list, create review pages, pre-sell, and so on.

5. They waste time pretending they are working. Many newbies surf the Internet on a continual basis thinking they are working.

In reality they are not doing anything to move their business forward. If you expect to become successful online you must spend your time doing things that are important.

6. They do not have any focus or persistence and tend to move quickly from one online business to another. It may be tempting to jump from one business to another if your current one isn't working out, but regardless of the business most newbies will face similar problems. The problem is very rarely the Internet business, but rather the newbie themselves.

These are six mistakes that newbies make online everyday. We have all made them, but successful Internet marketers are able to move beyond these six things.
