There is more than one theory of which is the best way to earn money by running a business online. With the on going economic recession, pay cuts and downsizing, many people are opting to work from home, leading to the growing popularity of online businesses.

So what are the best online businesses? Another huge advantage of online businesses is that you can choose to do it on a full time basis, or even make it a part time basis. Be it the sole source of your income, or a supplementary source, online businesses, if done the right way, can be very lucrative.

Currently, some of the most well known methods of earning money online are by creating customized service or product, organizing trading services, or promotion of products or services either of self or even others.

One of the best online businesses is the business of creating your own customized service or product. While this can be a very lucrative business proposition, it might prove to be difficult as a lot of hard work and big investments are required to create a product.

The production line-up usually comprises the creation, and testing of the new product, which is a very cumbersome process. But in case you have the technical expertise as well as the capital at your disposal, then this can be a very good option for you.

Another one of the best online businesses, is one involving trade services. In this module, you need to buy products and services at the cheapest possible prices, and then sell them or auctions them to wholesalers. This is a good enterprise as you are not required to invest a lot of time and money in order to create a product of your own.

All you need to do is find a good line-up of specialty wholesalers called drop shippers. Then you can directly ship the products to your customer; this is fast and also helps you to make a lot of money.

However, the drawback of this business module is that there is absolutely no assurance that you will be able to match the demand-and-supply of any particular product, at all times. Take for example; you may have a stock of a swanky printer, which you plan to sell in the coming three months.

But suddenly the manufacturer decides to launch a new product and decides to remove the existing one from the market! These are unforeseen circumstances which might hamper your business. In order to overcome this hurdle you need to have good business acumen and also a good knowledge of the market.

There can be many easy income opportunities such as online marketing, affiliate marketing, pay per click services, ad and space selling services, multi level marketing etc. Do your research thoroughly, ask experts and join various discussion forums to choose something that matches your skill set. But doesn't worry if you have no skill sets for an online business, many reputable 2 tier affiliate programs have sufficient training and mentorship available.
