When it comes to online investments, 2018 has been pretty prolific with new avenues ranging from online business development and sales to many new affiliate marketing techniques, in particular for what concerns Amazon FBA. With 2019 just started, let’s analyse what are the best and worst practices when it comes to online investments.
Real Estate Moving Online
If there’s one form of investment which never died and probably will never do, that is definitely Real State. As Warren Buffett said multiple times: “Nothing is better than buying low and selling high”. A big “do” for 2019, in fact, would be to start a drop surfing portal which lists real estate buying services, ranging from purely properties listing to financial services like long terms loans, open bridging loans and everything in between.
Invest In Mobile Development
There is a multitude of coding languages which has been developing in the last couple of years, especially Python. It’s no secret, in fact, that Machine Learning and Deep Learning are two major focuses in every single business field, given the fact that automation has become a big focus. Small investments, such as buying stocks or shares within certain startups that are developing groundbreaking tools could, in fact, be the easiest, biggest and most lucrative investment route a business savvy person could possibly take.
STOP Aliexpress Drop Shipping
Although this could be considered more like a form of business development and given the fact that this definitely requires a substantial marketing knowledge, investing in a drop shipping business/store has been a big trend in 2016,17 and 18. It has been proven by many entrepreneurs within different niches that drop shipping (in particular the one form which is involving Chinese suppliers like Aliexpress) as a whole is terribly saturated and therefore, it’s not that profitable anymore in 2019.
Cut Off The “Blind” Affiliate Marketing
Amazon FBA has been one of the biggest, easiest and most profitable affiliate marketing business programs in the last couple of years. Given the fact that the platform has a mastodontic mole of organic traffic, it’s quite easy to understand how a PPC savvy person could have outplayed the whole internal search algorithm.
With this in mind, Amazon’s affiliate program, especially the one bit which concerns FBA is set to build more rules, raise their costs per click and much more. Therefore, it is better to look into affiliate marketing for other companies such as ClickFunnels, as it is still a lucrative way to make money despite Amazon’s change of direction. Hustle Life offers courses on how to become a ClickFunnels affiliate if this is something of interest to you. Unless you are an expert within the field, keep FBA as your last source of income. Or alternatively, you could look into beginner articles for solo affiliates in order to try making money affiliate marketing within Amazon.
