Why should I know what is the best online business for women? Quite simple. I have been married to a wonderful lady for over 30 years and have learned a thing or two about women. Not only from my wife. But also through her friends.
I have discovered that women love to share information about the things they buy. Or experiences they have had, good or bad. I have also noticed when my wife shares what she likes about a product she recently purchased, the friend who is listening most likely will buy that same or similar product too.
Does that make sense to you? If you are a woman reading this do you also have this same experience? Either at the giving end or the receiving end.
The Process Of Sharing
Sharing things you like with others can be a very powerful approach to sell a product. In normal life you do this often but don’t earn a commission.
But what if you could? I am not talking about Network Marketing.
What if there was a way to use the Internet to sell products you do not necessarily own and still get paid a commission where a sale is made based on your recommendation?
Well, there is a way. Would you like to know more how this works?
The name of this process is called Affiliate Marketing. in fact, this method is so huge that Affiliate Marketing has evolved into a multi-billion business category all by itself. Entrepreneurs who have created Affiliate Marketing businesses have gone on to become very wealthy.
By no means I am implying that you will. But the opportunity exists where you can if you work hard and smart. The amazing thing it involves little or no investment on your part.
I have written an article that explains the process about how it works. Click the title above to reach this article. Let me briefly summarize it here.
There are thousands of companies that have affiliate programs. Such as Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy etc. You sign up as an affiliate with them and they provide you with an affiliate link unique to your account. The intent is to select a product niche that you are either very passionate or knowledgeable about.
You create a website where you write content that helps potential customers to understand how the product will solve a problem they have or meet a need. The next step is a call to action to click your affiliate link to go to the company’s website where they can purchase the product.
At that point you are out of the loop. When a sale is made the company takes over the transaction and will pay you a commission. How cool is that?
Can I ask what are your passions? Make a list. Then think what products or services are connected with your passions that can help others solve a problem or meet a need. It is very important that you spend a lot of time on this phase.
There are two main reasons to get this right.
- You will be writing a lot of content about your niche
- You have to be laser focused on a very small segment in your niche
You have to remember one important fact. You are not creating a store front. Amazon, Walmart and thousands of companies already have that. And you do not want to compete with them.
Your aim must be to narrow your audience down to minimize competition as well as to provide the best choices possible in your content.
You Help People
The crux of the matter in my opinion is women are better at developing empathy and helping others solve problems.
It is almost that a maternal instinct kicks in and a woman feels like they are helping a kid of their own. I am sure there are exceptions like everything else in life. What about you? Are you prone to helping others?
Can you relate to this situation?
Converting Your Desire To Help People Into A Business
You can reach more people than you realize through the Internet. The challenge is to find those who have a problem or a need that you can help.
It all starts by creating an online presence through a website. Your website is where you create content to provide details about how the product or service you are recommending can meet your customers needs.
You can do this in several ways through articles or videos, by creating the following:
- Best Of Articles
Is this something you feel you can do, especially if you can get expert help through training and mentoring?
The Sales Cycle
The following diagram shows how this all works.
- A customer does a Google search for a product or solution to a problem.
- Google provides them with search results of websites with content.
- They read the content and find it very helpful so they make a purchase.
- You receive a check.
Look at the diagram carefully again. Notice that the customer does not buy the product at your website. You provide them with a link to a store such as Amazon. Etsy or Walmart where they make their purchase.
This process is called Affiliate Marketing. You apply to become an affiliate of one or more companies who provide online sales in your niche. The company provides you with a unique affiliate link that they can use to track the sales originating from you.
When they click your affiliate link and make a purchase after reading your content, the company takes care of the billing, shipping, warranty, etc. And they send you a check. Today, it will be more like making a direct deposit into your bank account or PayPal.
It actually gets better. While the customer is at that website and makes purchases of other, perhaps non related items, you also get credit for those sales.
How cool is that!
John Crestani, a super affiliate, has created an excellent video to show how beginners can get started in Affiliate Marketing. What I like about this video is he keeps it simple. Be warned that even though this is simple, it takes training and dedication to become successful. Isn’t that true for any venture in life? Hence, no surprises here.
As a disclaimer, I have no connection with John Crestani. I thought his video would be good to use for illustration purposes only.

A Glimpse Of Your Future Life
I thought it would be exciting to dream a little. You lead a busy life now. But it may not be from doing activities you enjoy. Perhaps you have a job that you do not like. You could feel trapped and cannot see a way out.
Just imagine for a moment being busy. But doing things you enjoy. Not because you have to. Instead, because you want to. You have the freedom to schedule whatever you want. Not what others dictate.
How can this happen? By creating an online business that pays you whether you work at it or not. You decide the amount of pay you receive. If you want more, create more blog posts, promoting new and exciting products. Because you have built a very large list of followers who would be receptive to your product recommendations.
Resulting in more sales of course. More sales, means more income.
The amazing thing is once you build momentum, your business develops a life of its own, with minimal input from you.
How does this all sound to you?
