    Starting an online store would require a nice working capital. Currently till you do not have much money to invest you should focus on what service you can provide or consider doing network marketing. I prefer second option as there you do not have to worry about creating your product or delivering them or managing payment processing etc. Find a good reputed company and associate with that. Wish you luck

    I highly recommend you start with affiliate marketing. It is the easiest way to enter into a business online.

    With affiliate marketing, you do not need to handle inventory or create or have your own products.

    I suggest you sign up as an affiliate at clickbank.com. It is free to join. Pick products in the marketplace that you can promote and earn commissions from your sales.

    You choose your own time and you are your own boss.

        That is already your niche! - Music and Movies Entertainment...

        I recommend you pick Moviescapital.com - The Top 2015 Movie Downloads Site On CB!

        Promote it and you get $28.26 for every sale you make.

        If you can manage to refer 100 people a day to this website and assuming these people are highly targeted (... meaning they are interested in viewing/downloading movies), and assuming 5% of these would be buying the product (I have been getting as high as 30% conversion rate with highly targeted traffic) you would have:

        5 sales x $28.26 = $141.3

        Would you think a lot of people are also interested in your niche? I think so... think internationally. Your market is open worldwide. Start now and make a lot of money!

        Requirement: Dedication and massive action.

          I was going to suggest the same thing. But now you need to work on how you are going to promote that. There are countless ways but since you don't have money, you will need to work on free methods of promotion.

    You could start a tech channel on Youtube and earn adsense revenue. Tech channels are popular. You might also consider having a tech blog. There are lots of ways to make money with those. I remember what college was like and having a job that requires you to constantly perform a service could be a bit much. Do something that generates residual income.

    Jefinc,

    There are various ways to make money online. More info is better to suggest.

    How about your budget? I mean It's should be clearer.

    What is your skill? such as design, HTML, marketing, writing,...

    If you thought about an online store, which type of product you want to sell?

    Depending on that you could choose the right type of online business for your own.

    I recommend that if you decide to go with Affiliate marketing then try always to pre-sell and never send directly to the sales page, you need to always send it to a capture page then follow up via email , giving value first.

    Your store is online, you can reach millions of customers instead of whoever happens to wander in - plus, you don't have to pay for retail space. However, like with any business, you'll need an excellent product and a solid marketing plan.

    Fixing computers isn't an online business.

    Try building a great following on some social media so you can start charging for sponsored posts, you can also try to start your own blog about computers and technology where you can share not only your knowledge but your passion.

    Could you say a little bit more about yourself? A "student" could be a kid or someone going to the university, if you are still a kid going to school, well you are ****ed up.

    Yes, some kids are making more money than I do, but those kids are 1 in a million.

    Start a blog, that's the best answer I can give you, even if you have 15 years, you can make money from blogging, real money.

    If you're experienced with PC repair, then yes, you can advertise locally on Craigslist in the computer services section...consistency is key. If you don't have PC repair experience, then you can always start a blog and link adsense or get going with Clickbank, tons of resources already mentioned to get you started.

    i started my own business with a one page website, and no product. And built it to over $800 USD per day.

    basically all you need is a domain, website and squeeze page, but the best thing about this is having your own email list. That is like getting up on stage with anthony robbins and saying, hey guys check this out!!!

    Think about how powerful that would be. Right now people have an auditorium full of quiet black space.

    Which one are you going to choose. :-) ???

    If this is your first time starting up an online store, its best to go with the easier route and employ a SaaS (Software as a Service) eCommerce platform. Another option would be an open source CMS (Content Management System), however, that is only recommended for more experienced users, or those with a development team at their disposal.

    We strongly believe SaaS is the most solid option as it doesnt require technical knowledge, its cheaper, and you can get your shop up and running within hours if not less.

    For example, if you run into issues while managing your shop, you can resort to the services customer support, instead of having to hire a developer to take a look at the issue. The latter is usually much more expensive, especially in the long run.

    You can try Boomer Marketing App to build an online store on mobile app even without need of a computer

  • If you are a technical hand you can advertise your service on craigslist and can get some really good clients daily.You don't need a shop or physical location to invite clients to fix there cell phones or computers you can offer them a free visit or may be use teamviewer to inspect software issues

    Hi,

    Allow me to guide you through the very basic steps of Affiliate Marketing.

    1. Identify a topics full of hungry buyers.

    - Do your research via niche-related forums etc.

    2. Find Affiliate Products to Promote (Clickank or JVZoo (please note that JVZoo is more for the internet marketing niche).

    3. Setup a squeeze page to collect Leads (potential customers).

    4. Drive Traffic to your Squeeze Page

    5. Send emails to your Leads and Make Money!

    Looks simple but you need time and effort to get it going. But I believe you will be successful.



    Thanks.

    start a blog and building your brand from Today.

    for value creatin, on your blog site, you can focus 2 main theme around your passion:
    1. review computer parts, the good and the ugly
    2. offer advice on how to fixing computers or building up from old parts, e.g. why i only put 4gb ram with i5 processor.
    these activities doesn't cost you any money, only buying a domain cost a bit.

    to monetary you blog:
    1. google adsense
    2. affiliate with amazon computer products
    3. offer offline computer service, and charge your personal advice and time.
    4. if you want, you could create an email list for later use, to promote more service to your email list.
    this is only my personal idea, you can think more on your own.

    to promote your service or blog:
    1. facebook or your college notice board, i did this myself when in college.
    2. use youtube, shoort some product review video and fix advice video, after all, these videos can be your blog post.

    don't worry about give a lot of advice, if someone try to save the dollar they will never get to you, but others will see you as computer professional, will pay for your advice!

    Being a student you can target your own age groups because from your demographic everyone definitely owns a computer. Best way to do it is to make up a FB page and spread the word through your friends and family to other communities. Also computer repair business requires personal interaction with a client and people don't trust a private service provider right away. Therefore my suggestion is to also set up a separate repair shop on the side and register your brand name. After that you can start promoting your business on different social media sites effectively.

    From Post #18:

    I seriously don't get people bumping old threads and offering their "priceless" tips.
    20+ replies since the "old thread" was pointed out....shows how few people here now read threads before posting in them.

    I guess if you only read the title you might miss the date of the first post?

  • Hi there,

    Affiliate marketing seems like a good starting point. Your skills as well which you can utilize to make money online (e.g. writing, logo designing, etc.), can also serve as a good side job. Check Fiverr or Upwork for hiring.
