Thinking About Buying A Web-based Business? (An Empire Flippers Infographic)

I left my cubicle in 2008 and did odd, one-off jobs for three years until I transitioned into web-based freelancing as a full time transcriber and financial transcript editor.

In five years I’ve learned much about being my own boss, working from home, time management, bidding for jobs, filing 1099s and generally hustling hard in a gig economy.

I’m currently doing research in preparation for buying a web-based business. There are a handful of brokers whose marketplaces I visit often to see what sold and what’s currently for sale.

Empire Flippers is one of them. Their article, The 11 Most Popular Online Business Models, helped me understand the many ways web-based businesses make money. I remember when they sold Adsense Websites way back when, and I’m looking forward to the day when I purchase my first business (hopefully soon!).

If you’re thinking about investing in an already-profitable online business, go ahead and look up business brokers like Empire Flippers to get more information.

Do you have Comcast (landline) or Verizon Wireless service? Appian Communications is hiring people to make international calls Monday through Friday for a temporary (but long-term) project.

Pay is 10 cents per minute. Total duration of each call is 90 minutes per day. You will be paid via bank wire transfer or PayPal every two weeks. You must be willing and able to add international calling to your Comcast or Verizon Wireless service if you do not currently have this feature enabled.

I was recently hired and paid by Appian Communications,¬†and recommend applying for this opportunity. They’re looking to bring on about 50 people to test their international service.

The compensation I’ll receive from working this project is more than enough to completely cover my wireless phone bill each month. If you have 1+ hour(s) each day to test international calls and would like to earn money doing it, go ahead and apply. Please list my name, Faye Brown, on the online application when you’re asked where you heard about this opportunity.
