The world of eCommerce is booming and it’s easier now than ever to set up your very own eBusiness – A business that exists online and services customers around the world.
Have you ever thought that it would be nice to create yourself an altrenative stream of revenue – or even a successful online business so that you could give up the rat-race and work from home? Do you want to generate a passive income with low startup costs?
Then this series could be for you!
Throughout this series I’m going to be starting from scratch and as if by magic, using the wonders of modern technology, I will be creating an online business that could even grow to generate a sturdy passive income.

There are some great reasons to set up an eBusiness to generate an alternate stream of income, or potentially even a strong passive income.
Set up once
You only need to set up your business one time and it will work hard to generate you income for a long time to come.
Due to the way eBusinesses work, there are low overheads, low stock requirements and low initial investments.
Work from home
All this can be done from the comfort of your own home with a basic computer, smartphone or tablet.
“All this can be done from the comfort of your own home with a basic computer.”
Who is this series for?
This isn’t a get rich quick scheme. You won’t be on a 7-figure income after 30 days. If you’re looking for that, you’re in the wrong place.
This series is for:
- Novice users that want to learn more about eCommerce.
- People who want to generate an additional stream of revenue.
- People that want to build a successful online business.
- Businesses that want to learn how to compete online in the internet age.
Where would your extra income take you?

By the time we’re done with this series, we’ll have set up all the building blocks required to grow a legitimate long-term online business using readily available free or low-cost solutions.
What will we cover?
- Setting up an online business.
- Creating a promotional website.
- Finding a supplier.
- Creating your online brand.
- Marketing your items.
- Search Engine Optimization.
- How to create a passive income stream.
Okay – so I keep throwing that phrase around ‘passive income’. Most of what we’re going to be setting up is automated. We will become business owners – but we won’t be handling any of the shipping, handling, complaints or any of the ‘day-to-day’ runnings.
Most of the work will be handled by a combination of robots and 3rd party providers. With a bit of initial work, it’s possible to have your business completely automated.
All you’ll need to do is make decisions about expanding your catalogue of items, investing your profits or hiring a virtual assistant and then sit back and enjoy the extra income.
