There's never been a better time to start a computer business. While the overall economy is in the tank, advertising expenditures on the internet are constantly going up. The internet is sucking all of the advertising from print and television.


What is even better is that it is incredibly easy to start a computer business. There's very little cost involved and you can get started in your spare time without leaving your job.

The first thing that I have to tell you about starting an internet business is that there is not one single model to follow. Many people who want to get started online find that there are so many models that it is overwhelming. When you do your research, keep in mind that there are many ways to make money and you have to find the one that is right for you.

There are three different basic business models for those wanting to start a computer business. You can either create a product to sell yourself, sell other people's products, or provide a service. All business models boil down to one of these three concepts.

When most people think of products, they think of physical goods. Indeed, you can sell physical products like crocheted doilies or your home baked chocolate chip cookies through the internet. But remember, when people go online, they are largely looking for information. So, creating an information product is the fastest way to make money online.

It is interesting that people will pay $15 for a paperback book at the bookstore that runs 300 pages, but they will pay $47 for a 60 page ebook that they download and print out on their own paper. However, that's the economic reality of the internet. And, instead of having a publisher who gives you a dollar or two for the product, you get to keep the whole amount.

The next thing you can provide is services. If you write well, have graphic design skills, or can whip up a software program with ease, you can offer your services on the internet. There are sites like elance and rentacoder where buyers and sellers of such services meet. You can also go to forums where internet marketers chat and strike up relationships with people who can help you get started and who want to use your services.

Finally, if you want to start a computer business, you can sell other people's products. This is called "Affiliate Marketing." Basically, you are the middle man between the buyer and seller.

You can sell physical products ranging from house wares to diamond jewelry as an affiliate marketer. You can also sell other people's information products.

Affiliate commissions range from 4% to 75% of the total sale price. Because many information products offer 75% of relatively high purchase prices, many affiliate marketers begin by selling information products. The largest clearing house of information products is clickbank.com where 10,000 products are available for you to sell.

Once you choose a business model, you can begin to figure out how to make sales. But don't jump around from one thing to another always in hopes of jumping the "next big thing" bandwagon. Rather, decide on a model that works for you and run with it. That's how you start a computer business in your spare time.
