Starting an Online Business with No Money
David Carter knew only a few things about asbestos, but this didn’t stop him to create the site asbestossurveys.com, which made him several hundred thousands for just a year. As you may know, asbestos is a dangerous material, which was widely used in construction some years ago, and this is why the European Union enacted some laws regulating its use. Just creating a simple site, he opened the door to the world of business. Soon, inquiries started flowing and Carter just took advantage of this. He got certified and started providing such surveys, creating a decent business model completely out of thin air. Having in mind that one of the biggest contracts he has made in this business amounted around $500000, this could be defined as a big success.
David, who is an Englishman and lives in Birmingham, is an ultimate proof for how a man can make some serious money starting with almost nothing, just with some enthusiasm. Basically he likes to act as a middleman, so the only thing he has to do is to supply a demand (Al Capone had said that, as far as I remember…). Using the web as his primary tool, Carter has created many other successful websites. He identifies hot niches, buys some domain names and then adds a pinch of content to the recipe. Finally he ends up with several “hot sites” bringing some money home.
Do you need commercial properties offers? Search for it on MSN.com where Carter’s site http://www.commercial-property.co.uk/ appeared on the first page recently. He had no idea of selling or buying properties, but looking at the site, you will see people eager to trade such real estates. One guy wants to rent a warehouse, another wants to buy an office center… it doesn’t matter at all. David only collects the information and finds the appropriate people with the appropriate interests to make a deal using a phone.
“Internet is just a big bluff,” according to him. “If you can make a site look pretty and sound credible, you can pull inquiries in for just about anything and turn the Internet into one great sales-generation machine.”
This story is another proof that today almost anyone can start a business with no money. How do you think some of today’s biggest and most successful companies started? You can read their stories on the site and see that money was not a factor in the equation in any of the startups like Google, Facebook, Amazon, and most other big technology players of today…
