    List building. You only need 3 things:

    1. A squeeze page
    2. A sales page
    3. An autoresponder

    If you're really focused you can set up the entire front end in a weekend. Just drink a lot of coffee!

    Then write your messages a little at a time.

    If you pay for traffic and can get a positive return on investment you can maintain a business like this in a few hours a week. Building it will take a little more time however.

    It depends on how bad you want it. Most people stop and freeze in their tracks before they even start.

      yup, do this, and you will make money. This is how I went from $20 a day to over $800 per day.

      Just have a plan, I do 33% of my profits, and put that back into trafffic. If you do this, how can you have a business that dies. Always reinvest, and always use paid traffic.

      Do you think these big marketers, do big numbers with youtube, articles, and SEO, NO!, they use PAID traffic, as u can turn it on an off at will.

      I think most people stop because they dont have money for paid traffic as it costs too much and free traffic takes too much time

      You need to sell something ( a product or services ) to get paid
      You can sell your own or others ( affiliate cpa etc etc )

      BUT

      you need TRAFFIC !!!



      Most people tell you " do this and you can easily earn..."

      But getting the traffic to your offer, services, product is the HARDEST

      Once you learn that , then you can sell anything

      so

      Learn all you can about paid and free traffic generation

      All the great schemes in the world wont pay you a dime if you dont have people coming to your offers

    The question you should ask yourself is . . .

    Do you want the easiest business there is that typically makes tiny, tiny profits (if you're lucky) and come a dime a dozen . . . or . . .

    Do you want to put some work, originality, and creativity into a business that becomes an asset for you and a bona fide income stream over time?

    You can't have both. So do you want to make decent money or not?

      I don't think that they are mutually exclusive but it would be fair to say they don't often come hand in hand.

      My business is really easy and more importantly very profitable (2k a day on average).

      In fact I've now got it systematised so almost anyone can follow it.

      It has only become like this though due to my skills/knowledge and experience meeting hard/smart work and good fortune.

      I think one issue is that people look for easy work but don't see the effort it takes to get there.

    The easiest online business is the one you enjoy/love building a business in the first place. There's nothing easiest than actually enjoying building the business/content you're sharing to the world.

    Some people will think I am biased, because I have a WSO on it, but what i'm about to tell you is the truth in my case.

    Re-Selling facebook likes, twitter followers, instagram likes and other social media services.

    You basically don't need anything to get started, your customers will pay you for the order and you use a percentage of the revenue to order the service from the provider.

    This is how I got started and it generated me a steady cashflow out of nothing, when I had never made a cent in the online business game. Took me like 3 days to get my first $100 day.

    That was back in 2010.

    I think it's way easier now, because so many more users are on social platforms these days and there's a lot of space in the market.

    But like another warrior posted, it all comes down to doing what you love.

    If you do what you love, you will end up not chasing the money, but the money will be chasing you.

    Hope you have good luck,

    MeelisM

    The easiest way these days is with CPA or pay per lead offers. You simply need to give stuff away and get paid for it. Your only job will be to send traffic to the offers that pay per lead or per action.

    You can several CPA networks that pay you to do this and if you can't get approved by a CPA network, then you can find several individual companies that will pay you per lead.

    Here is a link to several people that will pay you per lead. (They pay between $.50 and $3 per lead. -> List Profit Generator Pay Per Lead Program

    My easiest online business was when I just hung out at home in my underwear, streamed football on my computer (see it's online, right?) and drank beer all day. I didn't bother creating a website. I didn't worry about my customers (I didn't have any!) I didn't develop a unique value proposition, a business plan or a monetization strategy. I also didn't make any money (though I did earn a pretty substantial hangover with barely any effort at all.)

    I can't say it's a great business model, but you did say you were looking for "easy".

    It' s about what you put into it. Any business can be easy as long as you have the passion and believe in yourself and your product or service.

    I know having some sites dedicated to Adsense over the years was relatively easy to maintain and very steady in income. So for me I would have to say that would be one for the closest answer to your question.

    Easy or profitable?

    The two are never the same in the beginning.

    My most profitable, enjoyable business is the content writing and linkbuilding business I now have, but it is also the hardest by far.

    Hmm, easy! & newbie, not a good combination to be honest. I wouldn't look for easy, I would look for solid. Simple is better than "easy". Simple low cost way for a newbie (your word) to get started.
    I started by blogging daily and sharing the blog all over social media. Create youtube videos on the topic you are blogging about and add the videos to the blog.

    Choose a topic that relates to the affiliate products you are selling..

    Sell affiliate products via stories on your blog, everything I've mentioned is free, except the hosting for your blog ($6 a month,) and you're in a simple business..

    My friend nothing is easy unless you love what you're doing. Find out what you're good at. If you're good at sales and love selling stuff to people then I think you should start an e-commerce business through e-bay or amazon. There are many success stories out there who started from scratch and hit big in a long run. If you're good in content writing, graphic designing or other professional stuff then start providing these services through different freelance sites . Let me tell you some projects pay really well if you know what you're doing.

      Well define easy lol ..... In this business nothing is easy .. I noticed when joining a free system back in 2012 i had the assumption that it was going to be easy not knowing i had to put in so much time. Even if you have money letting that go to delegate a project to someone is not easy lol ... so the easiest program i ever join was none ... In my opinion .

    For the past 16+ years, I have been monetizing data using PPL offers.

    With PPL (pay per lead...lead generation) offers, there is no credit card / no purchase required to complete an offer. All a user has to do is fill out a form, so conversion rates are typically much higher than offers that require a sale to be made.

    For me, It's always been about the Path of Least Resistance to generating conversions / $$$. It just much easier to get someone to fill out a form, than it is to get them to take out their credit card and make a purchase!!!

    I'm not talking about crappy zip or email submits offer. I generate leads in big markets, where there is a lot of money. Some of the verticals I have done extremely well are: insurance, debt, credit, education, mortgage, loans, assistance, homeowner offers, etc...

    They are verticals that have mass appeal (appeal to a large audience) so the potential to produce high volume exists and they are fairly easy to cross promote.

    Something to think about.

    The easiest business you can start online depends on you. what you really have interest and passion in. After that get a mentor that has an effective working system in the business area you choose and stick to it without allowing any distraction.

    I was able to start online with freelancing through the help of my mentor who is in the graphic niche, after mastering it i was able to diversify into other online business.
