I am currently employed dealing with purchasing for my company but I look forward to run soon a successful Online business so that I can hopefully focus full time on it and make it even better.
My online business interests (in order):
1) Affiliate marketing (which should not be a surprise here).
2) Drop shipping e-store (preferably without the the classic disadvantages).
3) Shipping e-store (initially not for my own products).
4) My own product creation for sale (when I will be ready for it).
Please note that difference between 2 and 3 above is that in 2 you don't hold the
stock (third party shipping) and in 3 you hold it (you also ship). Also 3 is generally (and somehow generically/confusingly/less accurately) also commonly called/known as e-commerce store (which can mean 2 and/or 3) or even just e-commerce (which can mean 1, 2, 3 and possibly other type of online business) ...
I am also interested in knowing more/implementing :
1) Sales Funnels
2) Product price/features comparison technology for affiliate sales
3) Other obviously necessary know how like SEO and Marketing.
I would also consider JV in particular from original system creators.
