What is the Best Online Business to Start in 2017?

There’s a reason why you’re looking for the best online business to start in 2017.

If you’re like I was a few years ago – frustrated with the status quo, and ready to take the bull by the horns, then you’re in for a great lesson. But first, I want to the story of how I quite my banking Job to launch out into the world of freelance consulting and online writing.

In July 2008, I joined a team that was setting up a bank here in Liberia.  I trained their Inside marketing officers, as well as created the local direct marketing strategy that this bank used to penetrate the market in a very short period of time.  I was one of the senior staff members

But there was a problem. I was being underpaid, and I had to answer to some disrespectful bosses.  If you’ve ever been in such a situation where you feel undervalued and disrespected, then you know what I’m talking about.

By April 2010, I had had enough… I tendered my resignation and left.

And that was how I entered the world of freelancing online.  I started wiring business plans for local and international clients. about a year later, I left the online scene because the demand for my services as a local business consultant had grown tremendously. I continue to enjoy the offline consulting;  but I tell you that I’m getting drawn to the laptop lifestyle every day that goes by.

So If were starting brand  new, what would be the online business that I would start in 2017?

I would start a blog. 

In this article, I will cover some very key points about the blogging business. Specifically we’ll cover:

But before I delve into what a blog is and how it makes money I’d like to tell you a quick story. Its the story of how a   Cosmetic Chemist Became A Blogger Then Made $500,000 From His Online Course Teaching The Chemistry Behind Products Like Shampoo And Makeup.

Perry Romanowski has made over half a million dollars teaching others the chemistry skills to make products like shampoo, conditioners and body lotions.

He used the Blog Profits Blueprint as a starting point for his blogging career, then signed up for the Blog Mastermind course a couple of years later, which he modeled to launch his own online course. He’s brought in over 1,100 paying members, generating over $500,000.
