Exploiting The Internet As Money Machine!

The internet is the greatest money machine in these days. Google, Yahoo, Amazon or Ebay have achieved a higher market capitalization than many traditional brick and mortar companies. Google has grown within a few year to a value of more than $77 billions.

How is most of the money made?

The big search engines make most of the money with advertisement revenues. Google Adwords and Overture are the leading cash machines. Other search engines and directories also rely on advertisement revenues. The higher their Google Page Rank, the more often they demand fees for directory listings. DMOZ is the only directory with a top Page Rank, where a listing of a website is free of charge. It is, however, almost impossible to get listet at the Open Directory Project.

Other big players benefit from the internet as market place. It’s a viable business to provide good and reliable payment services for the millions of internet merchants. Clickbank, Paypal, Stormpay and others are great in this business and make their money with getting fees from their services.

A lot of followers also benefit

This great market place has attracted a lot of other participants. They benefit, because the internet community still grows. They offer books, music, travel booking, retail shopping and much much more. Already established brands have a great advantage if they join the internet market place. Many users type in automatically the names of big brands, if they are looking for something.

How can a small or home business benefit?

The above mentioned companies have been lucky because they have started as pioneers from scratch in an early stage of the internet or they have been backed by an already prominent brick and mortar firm.

It seems that the best places are already occupied. Newcomers have to find niches and new opportunities. A lot of website owners try to promote goods as affiliates. They do not need to invest much money. The best way is to sell a good that just can be downloaded. No warehouse and shipping are needed. New opportunities to make an extra income evolve, e.g. getting paid for taking surveys or reading ads. There are no limits for innovations.

What has to be considered?

* Ask yourself, what you can do best, how you can use your own skills in the internet business. * Research a marketing niche that looks promising. * Write a small business plan.

* Limit your own investments. * Research, what you can get for free or for low costs for your business.

The conclusion of all is: Do the right things right! Try it at least!

  1. Dentists or Highway Robbers? Why Are Dentists Allowed to Charge So Much?Standard of living for most of us in many industries has been getting worse and worse and our wages have been going down or at best are stagnant assuming we still have our jobs. I work at HR of a well known Internet company. When we hire software developers, we are hiring people with PHD in computer engineering for sometimes less than $50/hour; the number of technologies that these candidates have to know just to get hired for less than $50/hour makes my head spins. They have to interview with sometimes up to 8 people who grill them on all aspects of technology for hours.

    You can get a laptop which is basically an amazing machine for as little as $300. You can buy a great camera that takes tens of thousands of pictures for you and would last you a decade if necessary for as little as $150.

    On the other hand, I go to my dentist who has finished a four year program, mind you that is just a damn bachelor degree, not even a graduate degree; he is so stupid that he has a huge belly and after years of working on subjects which have to do with medicine and health is not smart enough to keep a healthy diet; he is nowhere as smart as these programmers that we hire; yet, I go to his office and he or his assistant cleans my teeth for half an hour and gives me a bill for $300; that’s $600/hour and cleaning doesn’t require some type of classified extra expensive material that they can claim it is the cost of material.

    All because we are dealing with an industry that somehow has been able to stifle any kind of competition. Prices seem preset. Seems to me that the head mafia boss in the dental association of America sets and price, and then that is it. They are exploiting us big time and no one seems to even try to stop them probably because they have a huge lobbyist group in Washington. They are rubbing Americans of health and money.

    Anyone can suggest any solution? And please don’t give me that they have gone dental school and have high education. The software developers that I mentioned leave most of these dentists in dust when it comes to education and intelligence.

  2. the actual setting up of a dental office is far more expensive than many other medical practices. recouping said costs never seem to end.

    i agree that the charges are high…getting some type of dental coverage helps either through employer or out sources (delta dental is the largest i believe).References :
