Drop Servicing
If you don’t have the skills yourself then you can still profit from the demand for services online. This is known as “drop servicing” or “services arbitrage” and the way that it works is that you find the customers and then outsource the work to competent freelancers.
You charge the customers more than you pay the freelancers and you will make a profit. There are some very talented people on Fiverr.com that charge very little for their services. You can mark up their price significantly to make a healthy profit from being in the middle.
It is essential that you find talented freelancers that are reliable for your drop servicing business. Test them out to see how good they are. You can use PPC ads to drive traffic to your drop servicing website.
