Top Ten List of Hot Internet Business Trends for 2006


BAKERSFIELD, CA -- With the ever-changing nature of the Internet, so are the business opportunities it offers. More and more new entrepreneurs are discovering their "niche" businesses online. For many, a small niche business on the Internet can still bring a very lucrative source of income.

Joyce Mote, of the innovative website,, reveals some of the top Internet business trends for 2006. Many of these have been a direct result of online technology while others are prime examples of how everyday businesses can be transformed into online businesses.

"The Internet is expanding into business categories never dreamed possible as more individuals and businesses choose online resources over traditional methods to meet their needs," says Mote.

Mote takes a look at ten different industries and the most popular online businesses for each industry:

1. Food Industry
Just as it is off-line, the food industry is booming online as well. Consumers are "fed up" with the same old local foods and are venturing online to buy unique or unusual foods. Some business trends within the online food industry include herbs and herbal tea, specialty foods, chocolates, do-it-yourself menus and one-product restaurants.

2. Online Security
Security is still a major concern for online businesses this year. Those businesses that store lots of information are especially concerned with keeping their online databases secure. Businesses offering security software and third party security services such as shredding, site surveillance, secure database storage, and data backup have been popular in 2006.

3. Personal Technology
From cell phones to online games, millions of consumers have jumped on the bandwagon of technology in their personal lives. This has opened the door widely for Internet businesses that offer personal technology gadgets and devices. Cell phone add-ons are particularly popular, from cell phone covers to downloadable music and ring tones.

4. Home Improvement and Decor
Buying decor items or home improvement products from the Web is another hot trend for 2006. Internet consumers are able to find an amazing selection of items online, and they are loving it. Businesses offering products in home and garden decor or remodeling are appearing all over the Internet. Lighting, garden fountains, garden statues and furniture items are hot right now.

5. Products for Children
Kids' products are also popular online. There are unique toy businesses, educational software sites, fun and games sites, children's clothing sites, and many others.

6. Travel
Another industry that has been booming online is travel. From travel booking to car rentals, travelers are taking advantage of online resources to make travel plans. Where else can one find an affordable airline ticket and view their destination area and hotel rooms in advance? Full travel packages are popular online as well.

7. Health, Diet, and Fitness
Products to help one stay healthy or lose weight such as diet plans, diet pills, menu ideas, vitamins and exercise equipment are still going strong on the Internet. Other hot online businesses include medical billing, prescription refills, and other health care products.

8. Internet Marketing
One business that is always changing, but still a very hot market, is Internet marketing. SEO (search engine optimization) companies, which keep track of search engine patterns, have been very popular recently. There are also Web content companies and writers that tie in with the SEO market as well.

9. Staffing
Online staffing services for all sorts of businesses have come on the scene recently. Many companies are using third-party staffing services to ease their hiring burden and reduce staffing costs.

10. Unique Products and Services
The Internet is a magnet for those who want to test out new innovative products. To name a few, there are robots, Nanotech products, custom gift baskets, collectibles, web-related educational courses, online cash machines, multi-level marketing programs, penny stock trading and thousands of others.

"The Internet has opportunities for almost anyone, from single moms who want to work from home to millionaires who are forming a new corporation. This year's trends prove how diverse the online market has become, and it is expected to continue growing in 2007," says Mote.
