Do you know your way around
the internet and enjoy surfing and researching online? Then staring a
business as a researcher may be a viable option for you to consider!
How exactly would you make
money in this type of business? Just as the title suggests, you perform
research and you charge per the hour for your time. You can research anything
from genealogy to a business competitor, wholesale distributors etc, the
list is endless. Along with charging per hour, you could also create a
list and sell your information in an e-book or list format.
As you can see, you have several
options available and niches you can create for this business model. When
you are a person that lives on the internet such as me, you tend to forget
not everyone is internet savvy; this is where your business can be helpful.
Lastly, you could also spin
this a little different and teach a class on "how to find the information
you need on the internet."
*What you need: A computer,
which you most likely have already, and a knack for digging through websites
to find the information you need. Other supplies will depend on which
avenue you choose for your business.
*Positive: If you love the
computer this can be a great way to start a business or even start on
the side to make some extra cash. The ideas are endless.
