A great business idea which many are looking to right now is becoming a reseller server for many businesses and blogs across the web. What you will be doing in this instance is buying up a large number of products from a web host, such as domain names and dedicated servers, and then you will look to sell them on to your own clients. When you do this you will only be responsible for the sales of the reselling, as you will have the larger company behind you taking care of all the backend business.
There are a number of benefits to this business idea, and here is why so many are looking to become resellers.
Low Start-Up Costs
Contrary to what you may believe, the start-up costs for something like this are very low. The large web hosting companies actually encourage users to become resellers and hav programs set up which you will sign-up to. This can cost as little as $50 per month, at least for the reseller privilege. Beyond this you will have costs such as creating a logo and marketing materials, but that is all you will need to kick start the business.
Not only is this a cheap business to set up, it is also one which is made very easy indeed. All you need to do is sign up for a membership with the web host and then from that moment you can start selling. If you have friends and family who have websites then contact them regarding this, in order to secure your first sales.
Chances of Profit
Whilst the reseller option may be cheap for those who are signing up for it, there is a lot of potential here for you to make profits. If you are paying $50 per month for your reseller privilege for example, and you charge $6 per month for hosting, a very low cost option for website owners, all you need to sell is 9 packages in the first year to take care of those monthly costs. Anything over 9 in this example and you are in profit.
This kind of business doesn’t require you to have office space, and you can in fact work from anywhere in the world. You will of course need an online presence, so it will be important that you have a great looking website and social media presence.
There is no need to worry about limitations when it comes to being a reseller, because the web hosts will not put any kind of caps on how much server space you will be able to sell. In fact they encourage you to bring in as much business as possible. This means that when you get started as a reseller, there really is no limit as to how much money you can make with the web host.
This is a great way for you to make some side income, or as a full time job online.
