I enjoy making dynamic websites and i also like to do SEO - so i thought it might be time to create an online business of my own to make a little beer money on the side.

I am looking for online business ideas.

Since i am busy during the day i can only work on my "hobby" business at night, so i guess ideas that require a ton of tech support and perhaps shipping is out.

Anyone out there have a business like this and make a little beer money on the side? I would to hear what others are doing.

Look at Amazon's non-fiction best-sellers (ei, how-to's, tutorials, etc.). Pick a topic, buy that book, rewrite that book into 50-70 on-screen pages, compile that into a PDF file, and create a on-page site to sell it. That will get you some beer money without having to ship anything. Place ads on PPC engines and keep tweaking your sales copy.

Once you got enough beer, repeat those steps several times with different topics, and you'll get some whiskey money, house money, and retirement money on top that :)

Thanks for all your ideas.

bcc1234, I find your idea link of interesting and i would like to look in to it a bit more. Can you send me a private message of an example or point to one in such a generic way that i can find it?

Drumat5280, you can always buy an e-book that tells you how to produce and market e-books yourself :)

3 major categories that get money from internet are
Travel , Gambling , dating .
You should deal with something from these arenas .
the first one is more easy to make money as it is more destination oriented leaving off much competition .

lol, buy a book, rewrite it in pdf format, sell it online.

That's one of the funniest things I've seen here, and yet I can see that working lol.

It you find a niche market but don't have any suppliers or anything, just seo the site so it gets really good rankings, then contact an ecommerce site that sells the products and ask if they would be willing to dropship for you. In most cases, the answer will be yes when they see you are in the Top 10 on G* or Y* for a popular keyword :)
