      The way I see it, it isn't the niche thats the issue.

      Most people worry over niches and that not whats the most important. The real question is what will you be selling in that niche.

      I will make a post addressing this issue in my upcoming post.

      I agree from the ethical side of business, but every successful consultancy I know either grew through clients they already knew, or sold themselves really well. I think for free is what those of us who are not great at selling need to do (I include myself in that).

      That would probably take you a very long time to see any substantial returns, been there done that, don't highly recommend it.

      You're better of doing something else like selling t-shirts or something.

    The only business idea to apply is Email Marketing.

    What can change is the quantity of sub-niches to focus on, as an example fitness to people in office in uk is an uptrending, dating for vegans etc.

    Focus on what really works. Focus on the evergreen method of make money sending emails to a targeted list.

    Hey Sofor Ali!

    Great post!

    I agree - these are all fantastic ideas for business models of 2018.

    However, nothing beats the undisputed king of wealth generation - which is focusing on collecting precious metals, gold and silver.

    As the saying goes - "Keep the main thing the main thing."

    Just my two cents though :-)

    I've been doing the same thing for 17+ years...

    Monetizing email data using PPL (pay per leads) offers.

    At some point, I plan to start my own private PPL network for mailers, but that's just an extension of my existing business.

    In the end, it's hard to consider anything outside of email, because it's really the one true asset that you can build and really works extremely well and can't be taken away from you.

      It often pays to observe what is going on in the adult entertainment space because I suspect they are leading the way in monetising VR.

      Most things tend to expand where money is being spent so it is a logical progression for the adult industry to move towards VR.

      The question in that space should be how one can actually profit from VR when it seems the industry as a whole is geared around money laundering and advertising.

      Who is making money in that space?

      What do you think?

      Best regards,

      Ozi

    I am shocked to see that nobody is talking about the two most powerful leverage points in any niche right now -and they are growing by 25% this year.

    Software (SaaS) and Video will blow any business to the moon and back.

    And you can take that to the bank.

    The problem is with the question. if you can ask the right question, you will never lack the answers you seek.

    A good question therefore is what will sell more. Another one is what will sell less.

    From all indications, info products will likely sell less, because people are increasingly lazy, and will rather have someone/thing do it for them, than learn to do it themselves.

    Secondly, refund rates on info products is way higher than others. A few scum buyers also refund after they have paid. Its an evil cheat method.

    Ecommerce is a rich niche, but the challenge of merch is high, and ads are evil

    This leaves us with software (SaaS). the lazy persons best friend.

    SaaS plays rolls in every niche you can think of, or have listed above. Just think about Russel Brunson and ClickFunnels, or Anik Singal/Jimmy kim and profitFox/SendLane etc...

    If you need the perfect software and don't know where to start?

    Go to saas1000 dot com and check out the top SaaS companies in the world.

    Make your pick and headover to upwork to find someone create a smaller version for far far less.

    If you are still scared, go to codecanyon. You will find many saas1000 listings already created.

    So, back to your question, I think software is the future...no...scratch that. Software is the rave of the moment, and they that pay heed will smile to the bank in 2018.

    Thank you.

    Dropshipper

    "Come again", you might be thinking.

    Drop shipping is a business model where you buy your inventory direct from manufacturers who ship out to your customers without the middlemen.

    Think: Amazon, Alibaba.

    It's toward the top of this list because you could literally get going with little to zero start-up money.

    You could:

    1) blog about stuff

    2) sell stuff thats not yours on Amazon or Alibaba

    Payouts are small, though.

    Apart from the Online Tutoring field, in my opinion, the rest are all becoming highly competitive. I think Kindle Publishing, Podcasting Services, Dropshipping and Android/iOS App development also has the potential to become a profitable online business.

    Partial to blogging too Sofor. Really though, anything you feel passionate about and that helps you render service to people, will do nicely.

    Blogging rocks because you can sell virtually anything through a blog. One stop shopping.

    I do see more folks gobbling up my eBooks. People dig listening versus reading as a medium more these days, as folks are as busy as ever.

    blogs are quietly good, but as for me, i believe it-s quietly difficult to handle, and is not for everyone. However, almost everybody is on social media, so social merketers will be having good results, but one think to focus on will be promoting mobile offers, due to the huge number of people using those mobile devices, and the cheap cost involves on this type of campaign.

    Among your list, I will select three businesses (rather professions) that are flourishing on the Internet.
    1. Content writer
    2. Blogging
    3. Social Media Marketing
    Somehow these professions are related to each other, since content writing and blogging are being merged with Social Media Marketing. Writing blog post and content for publishing particular product and service is in trend now. There by I personally think these three online business ideas are going to be super popular on the Internet in upcoming years as well.

    I think 2018 will have a boom on the Cryptocurrency niche. Everything from ICOs, Casinos, Gaming, Blogging etc. will focus in one way or the other on the Crypto space.

    The promotion and news coverage that the crypto space gets is enormous.
    More and more people want to join the phenomenon and this will cause more and more exposure for the CryptoCurrencies and related projects.

Anyone can work from anywhere and anytime if you just have a few tools, i.e. laptops or tablets, internet connections. For me the best business online idea in 2018 is forex trading as today forex is the largest currency market in the world. It has numerous favorable opportunities for everyone.
