5 Awesome Online Businesses and WHY They’re So Successful

Due to my recent string of bad earning months, I’ve found myself looking for a new direction to where I want to go with my online business.  Most of my ideas revolve around creating website content (i.e. traditional blogging for a given niche), but I’m open to exploring other options.

This downturn in my online business has led me to research and explore other online businesses that are currently finding a lot of success. I’m not looking to become a copycat of any sort, but I do think that you can look at any successful business and take away at least a few gems of information that can help you build or improve your own business.

So, I present to you, five online businesses that I’ve decided to take a close look at, and really get to the heart of why they’re so successful.

My Passive Income Report [August 2013]

Does anyone else feel like this summer is flying by (or flew by) at a ridiculous pace?  I swear, the past few months have been a blur, and the end of the summer is upon us.

August wasn’t a great month in terms of income, but I’ve come to accept the fact that my online business is going to continue to trend downward unless I start doing something different (more on this below).

Changes are necessary, but for now, let’s take a look at August’s income report.

The Plight of the Wantrepreneur

I’ve done a lot of thinking lately about my online business, and where it fits into the context of the rest of my life.

People often stress out about not having enough opportunity, but I’ve found that sometimes having too much opportunity can be just as overwhelming.  Time is forever a limiting factor, and it’s this limitation that creates wantrepreneurs instead of entrepreneurs.

As I reflect on my past 3+ years working online, I thought it would be interesting to write it all out in a blog post.  Warning: This post is a lot of rambling, but I promise to keep it fairly brief and concise. :)

My Passive Income Report [July 2013]

July was a busy month – there’s no arguing that.

With so much going on in my personal life (a few more details about that below), I didn’t have nearly enough time to spend on my online projects, which is also why my blogging has been a bit light over the past few weeks.

From an income standpoint, July wasn’t terrible, although it was yet another declining month (unfortunately).

Although I’m going to try to make excuses, I know that I’m the only one to blame for my lack of productivity. :)

142+ Ways to Make Money Online

I love list posts, especially ones that can be bookmarked and revisited as a resource.  I’ve always wanted to create something like that, which is what led me to this article.  I’ve been working on this article for a couple months now, adding to it little by little.  I’m proud to be able to finally share it with you today.

The contents of this article are not in any way revolutionary.  Given enough time (this actually took much longer than I expected), you could easily compile a similar list. The concept of making money online is so broad, however, that I wanted a resource that captures most aspects of it.  Take from it whatever you’d like, or simply bookmark it for future reference.

Here’s some food for thought: If you could find a way to make just $1 per day utilizing each of the following sources, you would earn over $52,000 per year!

My Next Project: A “No Competition” Niche Site

I’ve decided that it’s finally time for my next “31-day challenge“.  If you recall from my last 31-day challenge, the purpose of the challenge is to focus solely on one project for 31 days.

It’s easy to let the little tasks distract you, and sometimes productivity is an illusion: you feel accomplished because you’re performing actions, but the actions add up to an insignificant result.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at my next 31-day challenge.
