I make a living with internet marketing and digital marketing. I am also location independent. My girlfriend wants to be able to become location independent and work from her laptop too. Right now she doesn't have any internet/digital marketing skills. I want to teach her a legitimate way to make money online. However, what I do is very involved, cost a lot of money (ad spend), and not the best method for beginners. So I need another good online model to teach her (or to point her to a good online course).
What business model do you think is good to teach to a beginner. Here are some thoughts on what would be a good business model:
1) Not too technical or time consuming
2) No to very little money investment needed (unless incoming money funds it)
3) It doesn't need to have massive upside potential but I do want her to get some early "wins" (sales) and to have the potential to fund some simple travels.
....Some business models I've thought of are:
a) Dropshipping products on ebay (List products from Amazon, BestBuy, etc on ebay). Collect money with ebay, then buy them from Amazon, Bestbuy, etc and ship them to the customer.
b) List Kindle books on Amazon (you'd have to pay writers though)
c) Some form of affiliate marketing (but learning SEO, blog building, etc all takes a lot of time and paid traffic seems to work better these days).
Any ideas? I really appreciate any feedback you can give!
