We all need the content to reach the maximum number of people as well as the right audience and Submitting a guest post makes that possible.

Top five online business ideas for building wealth without huge investments:

Start a blog catering to a niche topic or set up a company to provide writing services

Passionate about artisan food and know the intricacies of canning and pickling meats, vegetables or have a unique insight into a new cryptocurreny? Then you already have the foundation for creating a blog dedicated to the skills and techniques related to these niche topics. With the demand for artisanal food and information about cryptocurrencies such as Libra at an all time high, a blog in these niche segments will bring in large amount of followers.  As your followers increase you start earning off your blog. However, the cautionary note here is that the process of building a blog and getting a good amount of visitors per day can take up to a year. So when setting up a niche blog, ensure that you have the amount of time and effort to keep it running even when it is not generating revenue.

Content whether it is written or in the form of an image or a video is vital for the success of a blog. So if you are creating a niche blog,be prepared to write and publish your own posts. If you are passionate about the subject you are focusing on you can build your writing skills and polish them on the job. However, try to avoid creating every bit of content yourself.  So invite your friends or family to contribute as guest bloggers, and this will also help bring in more traffic.

Once up and running a niche blog benefits from a custom domain which brings with it a certain amount of legitimacy and it also allows you more freedom to run advertisements and earn revenue from them.Advertisements on a blog can pertain to aligned products to eBooks and more. However, before investing in a custom domain it pays to check if your blog is on track to becoming popular. If you blog is not doing as well as expected, consider switching to another niche or expanding your current one.

Monetizing a blog with the aid of sponsored posts is another way to earn money. With several companies paying money for a sponsored blog post that promotes a product or service, bloggers who run popular blogs can earn several thousand dollars per month.

Another way to ensure that your writing skills bring in the right amount of money is by tying up with other people and creating a company. As part of a team you can cover a variety of different topics such food, fashion, luxury watches and provide a wide range of content writing services. With various people handling different types of writing in a company the creation of newsletters, academic content and press releases happens easily and you can get the most money for your writing skills.

As the demand for unique content for blogs, social media posts and websites increases a company providing stellar written content can quickly enhance their reputation online.  Participating in the formation and running of such a company will also allow you and your partners to directly deal with clients from different countries.

Finally as you set up a company you need to be aware that crafting a successful and attractive script for videos that are going to be used as an Instagram story or placed on YouTube, again calls for writing skills. As the use of video for marketing online and on mobile devices is growing and shows no signs of slowing down, online companies are increasingly including script writing services as part of their portfolio, and so should you.

Start online courses and tutoring

Driven to spread knowledge and have the right qualifications and experience as a teacher? Then going online is one way to reach a wider audience and train students from the comfort of your home. Experience in teaching subjects like high school level English, Math and Science can be leveraged online and you can earna substantial amount per hour. Even if you have computer skills or if you are an experienced graphic designer without teaching experience, setting up courses and offering them online allows you to create a business that caters to people worldwide. While making a website to showcase course materials that you have created allows you to charge prospective clients and students money to access them.

As you are setting up an online tutoring business and creating courses it also helps to understand the options that are available to you as a tutor. The option of working as an independent tutor with your own website allows you to take home whatever profit you make, after meeting expenses incurred. However, being an independent tutor means that you have to market your courses extensively and building up a client base takes longer. Instead if you sign up with a tutoring company and offer your courses thought it, you will have ready access to a vast amount of clients without having to engage in a lot of marketing.

One major benefit of creating courses for tutoring companies is that you sell them on various sites like Udemy, and cater to those who are looking to learn the basics of web development or how to become an expert in digital marketing. Udemy while taking a percentage of the course fee provides you with access to hundreds of prospective buyers/students and ensures that your work is showcased on a global platform.

Create an eBook for Amazon Kindle

Got something to say about programming languages or have a great idea for a novel? Then it is about time you considered showcasing your knowledge in the form of an eBook.  Especially if you are a budding writer creating an eBook allows you to build wealth with minimum investment and also improve your writing skills. However, writing an e-book can become a long drawn out and tedious process if you are not passionate about the subject that you are focusing on. So whether your eBook focuses on a fictional world with fantasy and mystery or is set in a coffee shop, you need to be passionate about the characters and the subject.

Additionally you need to popularize an eBook before it is made available on Amazon Kindle or just as it is launched. To help popularize their offering, several authors start writing an eBook by publishing chapters on sites such as LiveJournal and getting feedback about ideas and plots. Building an audience for your eBook is therefore as important as the writing process, and you can even use the feedback you receive on published chapters to improve your work. Self-publishing an eBook on Amazon and ensuring that is popular within the first few weeks will automatically bring it to the attention of the site. As a result Amazon will ensure that your eBook is listed well ahead of others and you can hike the price for each digital copy. Once you have learnt the secrets behind self-publishing a successful eBook on Amazon you even write about your experience in an eBook and make money from it.

Go online with an E-commerce Site and do drop shipping

In a fast paced digital age, where a large amount of shopping is done online, it is no surprise that the Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) and drop-shipping are becoming popular ways to earn on the Internet. Before utilizing the FBA service or dropshipping, it is vital that you compare the two and see which meets your needs. If you are starting out in the E-commerce space drop-shipping is by far the easier option as it allows you to easily resell products manufactured by companies that you have tied up with. One you create a partnership with a company you can start your online reselling business on platforms such as Amazon, without actually stocking any inventory. Instead once the order for a product is placed on your online store on Amazon, the customer details are routed to the manufacturer. The manufacturer is then responsible for packing and shipping the product to the buyers. The reseller in this scenario earns the commission on the products sold, without having to make a huge investment in infrastructure or maintaining/storing inventory at warehouses run by Amazon.

Set up a social media marketing agency

The days when social media was used to showcase interesting stuff that you did through the day and places you visited have long since died out. Instead social media accounts are havens for companies who are looking to market their products to a targeted audience. So if you already have an extensive social media presence on Facebook, Instagram or YouTube with thousands of followers, then creating a social media marketing agency can become a profitable business. A social media marketing agency will allow you to promote products related to cooking, weight loss and more on your existing accounts, while you earn revenue per post. Additionally, you can also use your experience in creating social media accounts and attracting followers to help companies who want to create a successful and robust social media presence.

As a social media marketing agency can be setup from the comfort of your home and run on servers online, you can work at your convenience and build wealth without holding down a regular 9-5 job. Importantly running a social media marketing agency provides inexhaustible opportunities to travel, dine out and have fun while recording your activities in the form of photos and videos that earn money.

Setting up a social media marketing agency is currently one of the top ways to earn money online because most companies whether they are large or small, have not concentrated on building a strong social media presence over the years. Therefore companies that want to break out of conventional methods of marketing and make use of the latest social media marketing trends, often look for agencies that can handle the task. By opening a social media and internet marketing firm that can handle the ever-changing rules of social media websites and effortlessly promote services and products, you can earn an average of $10,000 to $60,000 per month.

Tips for setting up a social media marketing agency

Create Instagram stories that are 15 seconds long in vertical video format to promote products and services

Tie up with Vloggers running popular vlogs or YouTube Channels

Building wealth fast whether it is done online, in a brick and mortar store or office requires a number of specific skills. If you have the skills necessary to set up a blog, write an eBook or start a social media marketing agency then you already have the building blocks necessary for earning money online. In addition to using your skills,it is also helpful to partner with a team of dedicated people who have similar goals. With the right skills, and team in place you can start working towards financial freedom while having a decent work life balance.

Oil prices steady as lockdowns curb U.S. stimulus optimism

Oil prices steady as lockdowns curb U.S. stimulus optimism 1

By Noah Browning

LONDON (Reuters) – Oil prices were steady on Monday as support from U.S. stimulus plans and jitters about supplies competed with worries about demand due to renewed lockdowns to prevent the coronavirus from spreading.

Brent crude futures for March rose 7 cents, or 0.1%, to $55.48 a barrel by 1210 GMT. U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude for March was up 5 cents, or 0.1%, at $52.32.

“Sentiment was buoyed by expectations for a blockbuster coronavirus relief package … (but) the tug of war between stimulus optimism and virus woes is set to continue,” said Stephen Brennock of broker PVM.

U.S. lawmakers are set to lock horns over the size of a $1.9 trillion pandemic relief package proposed by new President Joe Biden, financial stimulus that would support the economy and fuel demand.

European nations, major consumers, have imposed tough restrictions to halt the spread of the virus, while China reported a rise in new COVID-19 cases, casting a pall over demand prospects in the world’s largest energy consumer.

Barclays raised its 2021 oil price forecasts, but said rising cases in China could contribute to near-term pullbacks.

“Even though the pandemic is not yet slowing down, oil prices have good reasons to start the week with gains,” said Bjornar Tonhaugen from Rystad Energy.

Supply concerns have offered some support. Indonesia said its coast guard seized an Iranian-flagged tanker over suspected illegal fuel transfers, raising the prospect of more tensions in the oil-exporting Gulf.

“A development that always benefits prices is the market turbulence that conflicts create,” Tonhaugen added.

Libyan oil guards halted exports from several main ports in a pay dispute on Monday.

Output from Kazakhstan’s giant Tengiz field was disrupted by a power outage on Jan. 17.

Dollar steadies; euro hurt by vaccine delays and German business morale slump

Dollar steadies; euro hurt by vaccine delays and German business morale slump 2

By Elizabeth Howcroft

LONDON (Reuters) – The dollar steadied, the euro slipped and riskier currencies remained strong on Monday, as currency markets were torn between optimism about U.S. stimulus plans, and the reality of slow vaccine rollout and the economic impact of lockdowns in Europe.

Market sentiment had turned more cautious at the end of last week as European economic data showed that lockdown restrictions to limit the spread of the virus hurt business activity, dragging stocks lower.

The safe-haven dollar declined gradually overnight, and riskier currencies strengthened. It then recovered some losses after European markets opened, and was at 90.224 against a basket of currencies at 1152 GMT, flat on the day.

On one hand, market sentiment is supported by hopes for President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion fiscal stimulus plans, as well as the expectation that central banks will continue to provide liquidity.

But, in Europe, the extent of the risk appetite was limited by a lack of progress in rolling out the COVID-19 vaccine as well the economic impact of lockdown measures.

German business morale slumped to a six-month low in January, surprising market participants who had expected the survey to show a rise.

“It’s very much a case of hopes for the future against the reality of the first quarter of this year which is going to still prove to be fairly troubled,” said Jeremy Stretch, head of G10 FX strategy at CIBC Capital Markets.

“For now at least, the optimism that we’re hoping for has been somewhat delayed and that has taken a little bit of steam out of the euro and just put a little bit of support back in the dollar but ultimately I think it is still a case of those high-beta commodity currencies, reflation currencies, will continue to perform well,” he said.

Analysts expect a broad dollar decline during 2021. The net speculative short position on the dollar grew to its largest in ten years in the week to Jan. 19, according to weekly futures data from CFTC released on Friday.

The U.S. Federal Reserve meets on Wednesday and Fed Chair Jerome Powell is expected to signal that he has no plans to wind back the Fed’s massive stimulus any time soon – news which could push the dollar down further.

“The process of tapering QE is likely to be a gradual process which could last throughout 2022, and then potentially be followed by the first rate hikes later in 2023,” wrote MUFG currency analyst Lee Hardman.

“In these circumstances, we continue to believe that it is premature to expect the US dollar to rebound now in anticipation of policy tightening ahead, and still see scope for further weakness this year,” he said.

The euro was down around 0.1% against the dollar, at $1.2153 at 1207 GMT. At the European Central Bank meeting last week, President Christine Lagarde said the bank was closely watching the euro. The euro surged 9% last year versus the dollar and reached new two and a half year highs earlier in January.

But despite this verbal intervention, traders remain bullish on the euro, expecting the bar for a rate cut to be high.

Elsewhere, the Australian dollar, which is seen as a liquid proxy for risk, was up 0.2% at 0.7726 versus the U.S. dollar at 1208 GMT.

The New Zealand dollar was up 0.5%, while the commodity-driven Norwegian crown was up 0.2% the euro.

The safe-haven Japanese yen was flat on the day at 103.815 versus the U.S. dollar.

Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific warns of capacity cuts, higher cash burn

Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific warns of capacity cuts, higher cash burn 3

(Reuters) – Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd on Monday warned passenger capacity could be cut by about 60% and monthly cash burn may rise if Hong Kong installs new measures that require flight crew to quarantine for two weeks.

Hong Kong’s flagship carrier said the expected move will increase cash burn by about HK$300 million ($38.70 million) to HK$400 million per month, on top of current HK$1 billion to HK$1.5 billion levels.

Hong Kong is set to require flight crew entering the Asian financial hub for more than two hours to quarantine in a hotel for two weeks, the South China Morning Post reported last week, citing sources.

“The new measure will have a significant impact on our ability to service our passenger and cargo markets,” Cathay said in a statement, adding that expected curbs will also reduce its cargo capacity by 25%.

The airline, in an internal memo seen by Reuters, requested for volunteers among its crew who could fly for three weeks, followed by two weeks of quarantine and 14 days free of duty, adding it will be a temporary measure and not all its flight will require such an operation.

“We continue to engage with key stakeholders in the Hong Kong Government,” the memo said.

In an emailed response to Reuters, a Hong Kong government spokesperson said: “In the light of the evolving pandemic situation locally and internationally, the Government will keep reviewing and refining the arrangements applicable to different categories of exempted persons, including air crew, with reference to all relevant considerations.”

Separately, a company spokeswoman said the airline could not detail the impact on vaccine transport specifically in terms of cargo shipments.

The aviation industry has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic as many countries imposed travel restrictions to contain its spread.

In December, Cathay’s passenger numbers fell by 98.7% compared to a year earlier, though cargo carriage was down by a smaller 32.3%.
