Internet Business models are the money machines that drive online business. And don’t confuse them for offline business models, that’s a whole different animal.
It’s like “well, that’s pretty obvious…” when you read it like this on your computer screen. But ol’ boy, reality reveals that most virgins – even many webmasters – don’t know what they’re doing when they do get around this reality…
Frankly, online business models greatly differ from offline business models. In fact, they only share two things in common:
1) Verbally shares the word “Business Model” and
2) Intellectually shares one purpose too – marketing…
And beyond these two?
Is a world of differences. What you want to glean from this page are profitable internet business models… let’s keep it there – for the name.
Marketing is fancy word for how value is promoted and distributed to people. Value could be products, services, ideas or any fine mix of these three. But no matter what, it MUST fulfill at least, one need.
Nope. Not the Bill Gates book.
I mean internet business models make it possible for you and me to do business at the speed of thought…
…sealing deals at the click of a button.
Amazon has started selling more eBooks than hard copies – even though they have more hard copies in stock than their electronic mates.

This is not hard to see… with Kindle, iPads, Nexus, and other sleek gadgets selling out at alarming rates, more and more people are finding it more convenient having all their library volumes and favorite media handy on flight, in waiting rooms or just around the mall.
You can have a shopping spree in Paris… sitting at your veranda in Chattanooga. No qualms – sipping on your favorite beverage.
But be warned, when it comes to doing internet business that REALLY works…
If you do?
You’ll fail dismally – at least.
you’re like most people I know, you really don’t want to be fiddling
with a failed course now… you’d rather have the success instead. All you
have to do is KNOW your passions.
How you know them?
…what you love, hate, your talents, strengths, weaknesses…
Do your best to answer the question “what is bliss to me?”
Once you gain a grasp at your truest passions, it’s there you begin KNOWING what you really would love to do. What comes natural to you?
Especially the crazy things… the more unique your answer reveals of you, the better.
To work internet business models successfully, you MUST start with your passion. Oh, of course it’s not necessary if failing still makes sense to you. Success is optional.
But if you seek success click here to use a nifty tool that helps you find your true cor. (by the way cor is Latin for heart…)
Don’t hurt yourself. Start with YOU.
