In addition to the field of e-commerce (buy and sell via the Internet), online business also experienced a rapid growth in the field of information Technology (IT). Media information that used to be through conventional newspapers is now an online newspaper like; Tempo.co, Detik.com, TribunNews.com, Republika.co.id, Kompas.com, and many more.
Internet business is also run by those who have skills in a particular field and want to make money from those skills. In short, various online business opportunities in the coming years will be wide-open and can be done by people who want to do business.
Who can run business Online?
Understanding the online business is a business that is run online, can only be run when there is an Internet connection and computer/ mobiledevices. So, everyone who wants to run an online venture must have an Internet connection and a computer/ mobileDevice.
Internet business can be done by anyone, no matter what your profession at the moment. Even those who are still Gaptek (stuttering technology) can learn business online and succeed when serious run it.
Maybe some of you are wondering, what are the online ventures that could be profitable in the long run? Based on my experience and also the information that I find about Internet business, here are some promising online business opportunities with small capital, and this business again can we work from home.
1. Internet Business sells other people’s products
In my opinion, this one business is one of themost profitable types of online businessestoday. The reason is, consumers in Indonesia have many started to switch to online, and running Internet business does not need big capital lho, even almost without capital.
The advantage of selling other people’s products (Reseller/dropshiper/affiliate) is that we do not have to worry about procurement of goods to be sold and also the delivery process. There are many online stores that offer this program, of course we also have to learn the transaction history from the online store. Make sure that you work with the person who is responsible and trustworthy.
Online stores that offer resellers and dropship programs are usually willing to deliver the goods to the buyer where in the packaging of the goods the name or our online store that is the poster. So we will not lose those buyers if you want to make a purchase at a later date. Products sold by way of reseller/dropship are usually shaped goods.
In addition to selling physical-shaped products, we can sell other people’s products in digital form such as ebooks, videos, and memberships. Usually the program is referred to as an affiliate where we earn a commission percent of the total price of the digital product we sell through our affiliate link.
You can find a variety of products that can be sold on the following marketplace sites:
- Dropshipaja.com (physical product/dropship)
- Supplier.id (physical product/dropship)
- Cakning.com (physical product/dropship)
- Ratakan.com (Digital products/affiliate)
- Idaff.com (Digital products/affiliate)
- Tokopedia.com (physical product/dropship)
- Bukalapak.com (physical product/dropship)
Selling writing services is one of the best selling online business types in Indonesia.The reason is, because now many media blogs/websites sprung up and needed writers to fill the content of the website.
Website content can be in the form of text, images, and video. But from most website content I see on average using text or articles. If you or people around you have the ability to write articles, create videos, and pictures, then this online business opportunity is what you should run.
Besides the content in the form of text, video content and logo images are also pretty much in need. One of the most sought-after video and image content is to create a video marketing and also a logo-related image of the business that will be marketed.
There are a lot of website owners or business owners who don’t have the time or don’t have good skills in creating content, logos, and videos for their websites and businesses. If you seriously want to build an online venture in the field of business article writing Services website, they are your ideal target market.
How do I find potential clients? You can find them on some of these sites:

4. Internet Business becomes Online Realtor
This business is pretty much done by online businessmen. A Realtor is a person or a company responsible for bringing together a product/service seller to prospective buyers. Obviously to be a realtor, we need to have a wide network and acquaintances.
In online business, the confidence of prospective consumers is something very important. Therefore, we should need to learn the background of the people we want to find, both the seller and the prospective buyer.
Some businesses that use online realtor services include; Selling websites, selling property, selling services, and others. Another thing we need to look at as an online broker is in terms of pricing of the products/services you provide.

5. Selling consulting services in a specific field Online
This business is perfect if you have excellent skills or expertise in a particular field. In the sense you are an expert in the field you are in.
Some examples for this business field is SEO Consulting (search engine Optimization) a website, business development consulting, romance consultation, traditional medicine consultation, health consultation, and others.
In the past, business consulting services run offline. However, now business in the field of consulting services is very lively we find on the Internet. So, if you have skills or expertise in a particular field, then that skill can be a profitable business if marketed online.
6. Online MLM Business
Many people are tilted against the MLM business, and will hurry to close themselves when someone offers a MLM business on them. In reality this business is very potential and gives a huge advantage to many people.
Actually, there are a lot of examples of MLM business that run online to generate long term benefits. However, it is worth noting that not all MLM businesses have the potential profit for the culprit.
ABE Network and Oriflame online business are examples of MLM businesses that are big running online. The success of the online MLM business because the products are good and widely used by the community. In addition, the business plan offered by the business is very profitable for its giving.
In addition to these two businesses, there are several other MLM businesses that have very good business potential. But I can’t comment much because I’ve never run it.
7. Become a professional Blogger
If this one online business model is sure almost everyone can work on it. There are many bloggers who have a fanstastis income from a blog/website that is built. I personally am deeply inspired by the success story of a British blogger, where initially his blog-related WordPress blogs have finally become a big site with an income of reaching four hundred thousand dollars more per month.
Earnings from blogs can come from PPC (pay per click) programs Google Adsense, ad space, product reviews, and others. To be a blogger is certainly not a very difficult thing is not it? I myself at first did not like to write and create articles, even at the beginning of the creation of this blog, almost 3 months this blog no content at all hehehe.
I finally tried, and Tadaaaa… Now my article is pretty much.
8. Offline Business Go Online
As already explained earlier, offline business models can also be marketed online to increase sales and branding. There are many SME business entrepreneurs who succeed in expanding their business and benefit doubled after marketing their business online. Of course there should be a business or product to be sold.
Actually, to make our offline business marketed online does not require large capital. For sure we will need a website as well as social media as a supporter of online marketing is done.
Some examples of online go offline businesses:
- Sell Vegetables via Marketplace
- Marketing Rendang via YouTube
- Selling snacks via Instagram
- Selling shoes via Facebook
- Market fried onions via Google Ads
- And others
In addition to those mentioned above, there are certainly still many online business ideas that can be run from home. In running the business online, of course we must have a computer device and good Internet access. For promotional media, we can utilize social media, personal blogs, advertising media, email marketing, and others.
In closing, I would like to convey that online business should be accompanied by the ability to conduct effective marketing. Below is one example of video marketing. The video is explained about the importance of online marketing to increase brand and business benefits. See the video.
