Internet is amazing. It is not a brick and mortar business. One can build very legitimate businesses on the internet that can be much more successful than any physical business. Internet provides so many opportunities for varied types of businesses.
In the physical world, we have many services which facilitate the exchange of businesses between buyers and sellers. Same is true for the internet. One major advantage of working on the internet is that one can start virtually without any capital and can be much more successful than any non-internet business.
Some persons may find a vocation in buying and selling of internet businesses. There are many options that can be pursued. This could be a lucrative home based business.
One option is that one can start a website for people who are interested in either buying or selling of an internet business. It will be a just a listing and connecting service between buyers and sellers of internet businesses.
The other option is that you can yourself buy internet businesses low and sell high. Of course, this requires good knowledge about web businesses. This can also be done for flipping of sites. This means that one can buy an internet business which one feels can be renovated or redone and flipped.
If one is innovative and has different ideas, one can make brand new websites and offer them for sale on Sedo.com, afternic.com or dnforum.com. One can find many sites in the buying or selling of websites by doing research on the internet.
There are many neglected websites in the internet which can be found at DMOZ, which is an Open Directory Project (ODP). One can browse through different categories and pick up some websites of one’s interest. One can refurbish an old shabby looking website, redo, make it different and sell.
Another idea is to pick up a few related websites and merge them together for cornering an interesting niche.
One can also build a brand new website about internet businesses and combine some other related activities with it. These could be buying and selling of domain names, domain name search, finding of new domain names, discovery of niches etc.
Many times, a company buys a domain name in one or two particular categories like .com, .info or .org. There can be many other Top Level Domain (TLD) name variations of the same name which may still be open. One can buy these for some free traffic. These could latter be sold to the owners of .com, .info or .org TLDs.
