There are lots of business ideas on line. But are they profitable? Do they consist of things you can even do?
What about those ideas that are profitable, and you can do, but you would never want to do in a million years? You probably wouldn’t want to do half the stuff that people are willing to do online to get attention and make money. You want to find profitable online business ideas that fit with your ethics and sense of personal identity.
But, just for the fun of it, here are some stupid things people do online to earn money:
- They sell stupid stuff.
One guy sold a million pixels on his home page for $1 per pixel, and called it the Million Dollar Homepage. Believe it or not, people bought all the pixels. Another guys sells tennis balls that you can stick on the radio antenna on your car. And these tennis balls wear little hats, football helmets, or anything else you want. Another guy sells red balls that you can send to your friend through the U.S. mail. They’re about the size of a volleyball, and they’re just plain plastic balls with nothing special about them. He just sticks postage stamps on the balls and mails them to your friends for you.
- They do stupid things.
One lady videotapes everything she does 24/7 and posts it on YouTube. One of the most exciting days was the day when her boyfriend threw a towel over the camera so they could make love without being broadcast. A teenage boy poured gasoline on his pants leg and lit it on fire, not realizing that his stunt might end up being painful, but he got a lot of hits on YouTube. Characters like this sell ads on their YouTube channels because they have big audiences.
- They do other things that I’ll just leave to your imagination.
Yes, people will do everything, and someone will pay for it. Need I say more? Are there profitable online business ideas that don’t involve making a fool of yourself? Fortunately for us normal people, the answer is yes.
MTTB (My Top Tier Business) is a 21-step training program that will teach you how to make money online in a very simple way. For a nominal fee, you’ll have a coach who will help you write a business plan and expose you to some practical, down-to-earth ways of making money with affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is one of the lower-risk ways to make money online, because you don’t have to rent your own building, hire a staff, create your own products, or stock up on inventory that might not sell.
Personally, I think it’s kind of funny that people will do such crazy things online, and I’m glad if they can get a laugh or get the attention they want. I just prefer to look for online business ideas that don’t hurt.
