SAN DIEGO, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The start of the year 2014 has given business owners and entrepreneurs many appealing opportunities to earn money while saving time and effort, with countless new business ideas and setups to explore. Unfortunately, many of these new, great business ideas are overlooked or gone unnoticed. Empowered Ezine offers a new comprehensive guide that gives some of the best business advice for 2014 by labeling a few practical businesses in today's business world.
Empowered Ezine's guide begins by stating "Starting your own business can be a life changing event, and whether you are planning to quit your day job and be your own boss or you simply want to have the extra income having a side-business (which can eventually turn into a full-time business) can bring, the tips and ideas in this article will help you in your journey to financial independence and professional fulfillment."
Before starting a business, the guide proclaims that a business owner should always consider their existing skills before deciding what business path to pursue. This may include a myriad of skills, from cooking to creating hand-crafted products. Knowing what skills are available can help business owners determine what opportunities will be available when making business arrangements.
That being said, the Empowered Ezine article cites a service based business as a great business setup. The article states: "There are a few things that make service based businesses good options for small business entrepreneurs and possibly one of the best types of business for 2014. First of all providing a service as your "product" gives you an edge, because this is not something that people can buy over the counter at a large retailer. Also, most services require very little start up costs. What you are offering is your time and labor, and there is usually very little, if any, equipment involved." Among these service based businesses include janitorial services, event organization, senior care, or even office space organization.
Entrepreneurs should consider opening an online business as well, if only for the sheer advantages it has. An online business provides distinct advantages a physical one doesn't, like being able to provide entrepreneurs numerous options online while allowing them to reach out to more customers this way. In conjunction with other physical businesses, this can prove to be an effective business plan.
One online business gets special note in the article, and that is affiliate marketing. "One particular online business that has been receiving a lot of attention is online affiliate marketing. This is popular because the business owner does not need their own product but simply markets other companies' services or products in exchange for a previously agreed upon "cut" of the profits that the company makes due to the efforts of the online affiliate marketer" expresses the article.
Although affiliate marketing may seem too intricate of a business to properly setup, the article has to say about the subject: "..there are many good affiliate marketing training programs that can help new business hopefuls get a grasp of this concept which can help them earn residual income over the years for work that they put in at the start."
These are just a few of the best business ideas for 2014 provided by the article. To learn more practical advice on setting up a business, or to see what are some great business concepts to lead the year with, click here to view the full article on Empowered Ezine.
