5 Businesses that will make you money this 2017

There’s something about new years that push people to think of business ideas to make money whether it be offline or online. Now that 2017 is fast approaching I think it’s about time to think again.

I created for you a short list of businesses that make money that you might want to take a look at.


The beauty with blogging is that it’s easy to get started. If you love writing articles and coming up with useful content in the 300-500 word range then you must try this out.

Just about any topic can be monetized these days. All you need to do is to think of a topic that you really like talking about and start writing about them.

The most common way to make money in the blogging business is by selling ad-space on your site. You can also use ad networks such as Adsense that will automatically put relevant advertisement on your site.

Done right, you can make thousands of dollars blogging.

Web Design / Development

This I’ve been in this business for YEARS and it’s still a great money-maker. Obviously, it’s not something that you can start right away unless you already know how to build websites.

If however you are technically inclined then it might be a good idea to invest some time sharpening your HTML, CSS & PHP skills. Good news is that you don’t have to be a geek to create websites nowadays because you can easily create professional websites with WordPress.

One thing’s for sure – businesses that make money usually have websites which makes it a good business idea to create websites for them.

Search Engine Optimization

The world wide web is filled with websites trying to make money. There are millions of websites competing for people’s attention and it’s so hard nowadays that ranking in search engines is now a full-fledged business.

If you choose to offer web design / development then you must also think of search engine optimization as part of your business offer. Furthermore you can also offer SEO to businesses that already have existing websites.

The idea is simple, improve search engine rankings of websites for certain keywords that make sense for their business and get paid doing it.

Affiliate Marketing

Don’t have time to create a blog or learn web development? No problem! You can always give affiliate marketing a try. All you need to do is sell other people’s products and earn a commission on each sale made.

My favorite site to hunt for awesome affiliate products is ClickBank. It has a huge database of products that you can sell and you can get as much as 75% in commission per sale.

I’ve met and talked with people who make thousands of dollars per month in affiliate marketing sales.

Network Marketing

What I love about network marketing is that you don’t have to be skilled in anything in order to succeed in this business. As long as your determined and focused, this business is a great money making idea to try.

It’s a lot similar to affiliate marketing in that you make money from commissions. The additional beauty of this though is that you also make money from your team’s sales.

So yeah, you need to build a team and some are better than others when it comes to creating a great team BUT everybody can build a team – small or big.

The best part about network marketing is that once you’ve properly laid the foundations, you can have a constant stream of passive income day in and day out.

Truth be told, there are thousands of business ideas that really make money nowadays. The only reason why I listed these 5 is because I’ve done them all and I know they work.

Business ideas really are a dime a dozen. In the end, it all boils down on how much money you want to make and how much are you willing invest (time, money and more) in building your business.
