In 2011, you are start reading, hearing and seeing that almost everything has the word “cloud” in front of them – cloud business, cloud apps, cloud accounting, cloud hosting, cloud storage, cloud music cloud printing, etc. You also exposed to new cloud-related jargon on regular basis: cloud outage, cloud sprawl, cloud migration, cloud adoption, etc.

1. Blog or resource website on cloud-related topics

With so many new buzz words related to cloud computing, establishing a blog or a resource website that can help others to understand about the cloud better would be a great idea.

I did started a blog on cloud business reviews about 10 months ago and it’s growing so well simply because people are eager to learn more about the cloud.

How about establishing a cloud-related job site? Since cloud computing is booming, there are new job openings with new job descriptions available today, such as Cloud Engineer, Cloud Manager, etc. So I think it would be a great idea to establish something like this cloud jobs site, offering cloud-related job openings.

3. Cloud service reviews site

With so many choices available today, it must be difficult to choose the right cloud service for you. Just consider this: Want to store your music? There are Amazon Cloud Drive, Apple iCloud, BestBuy Cloud Music, Google Music, etc. – each with its own strengths and weaknesses. How do you know which one is the right one for you?

As an online entrepreneur, you should answer to people’s need: Why don’t you start a site reviewing cloud services, rate them, and recommend them? If the cloud services have affiliate programs, they can be serious money makers for your site – so you need to “lure” your readers to sign up via your affiliate links.

4. Providing cloud services

For this cloud-based online business idea, you need to have an extensive knowledge on cloud technologies OR you need to partner with someone whose IT skills and cloud knowledge is his/her bread and butter.

You can start a real business, offering cloud services, such as online collaboration tools, productivity tools, backup tools, etc. You can make money via pay-as-you-go or subscription model.
