Default What Is The Profitable Niche To Make Money Online?

Hello Guys,

I am new here and Want to ask what is the best niche for online earning? I want to start freelancing or start my own business on online. I had started learning Web Developments and doing PHP learning courses now. Also, I am taking courses from Udemy!!

Please suggest me, Which will be better?
Joining a freelancing site for searching jobs? Or Creating own website to build up my online presence with a niche based business.

I am pretty interested about eCommerce. What will be that?

The freelance job listing sites generally list lower-dollar-value jobs, often for clients who have an unrealistic idea about the amount of work their cash will buy, plus the job site will generally take a percentage of the money you make. The advantage is that they list a lot of jobs all in one place, and they do the work of attracting hiring companies.

You'll probably be able to make more money if you book customers directly through your own website, but you'll also have to do the hard work of making yourself known, attracting customers, gaining leads and nurturing those leads into a becoming a client.

It's just a matter of whether you want somebody else to do most of the marketing and have access to larger number of jobs (with the tradeoffs being that you're not guaranteed to getting any of those jobs, and you'll make less money per job you do get) or doing the marketing yourself which could allow you to make (and keep) more money (with the tradeoff being that you have to do more work to get yourself in front of people).

One isn't necessarily "better" than the other. It all depends on your business model and what kinds of activities you want to spend your time working on.

You can do freelancing jobs if you think your skills are sufficient enough for a particular career you want to venture in. You can also create a website and attract clients to give you a chance or award you particular jobs but usually it takes time and needs patience since it's no easy to get a client.

First thing first before landing a freelancing job be sure to have a strong background in which you are already established in the related field.

Freelancing sites offer many low paid opportunities but also give you the chance to get your foot in the door of potential long term clients. Both routes are difficult!!

Other than freelancing job, I suggest to do content marketing where you can gain knowledge and at the same time earn money.

How about you do a market research online? Start with sites like amazon or ebay, and look for the best selling items or products. You start from there and you'll see samples of profitable niche to market online.
