One great aspect of owning a small online business, is that you can do it from the comfort of your home. Not only you’re your own boss but you also have the advantage of cutting a few extra costs such as transportation fees and you can even have video conferences via Skype with your clients and employees (if you have some). Take a look at these five small online business ideas and get inspired to start your own business!
Small Business Idea #1: App Developer
This is a great business to get into these days because everyone uses apps on their devices. If you have a creative mind and know how to code, why not open your own business as an app developer? Another reason I think this would be a great business to get yourself into is that I’ve noticed that businesses are now aspiring to having their own customized applications so they can set themselves apart from others.
Small Business Idea #2: SEO Consultant
What business doesn’t want to bring more traffic to their online stores/businesses? Use your skills as a SEO expert to help business become more popular on the web and increase the number of people visiting their websites and becoming potential clients. The more successful they become with your help, the more your services will be requested by other businesses to help them too when they see what you can do.
Small Business Idea #3: Social Media Consultant
Are you an online social butterfly that can convince anyone into reading your posts? If yes, then guess what? It will take little effort to turn yourself into a social media consultant. What do business need to get more presence? Advertisement and that’s were you come in: market and advertise people’s businesses on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more. So basically, help people make money while using your favorite social media platforms!
Small Business Idea #4: Remote Technical Support
I have an iPad that has been sitting in a drawer for a while now. Things could have been so different if I knew someone kind enough to show me how to fix it without charging exuberant fees. A lot of people don’t know that they can fix simple issues they have with their PCs, tablets and phones on their own, if given simple instructions to follow. You could help so many clueless people such as myself if you decided to use your tech savvy skills remotely. All you’d need is Skype, your knowledge, enough patience to walk people thru the necessary steps to fix their devices and you’re set!
Small Business Idea #5: Health/Nutrition Coach
Deep down, everyone wants to be healthy. Some people give up on eating healthy and exercising not because they’re lazy, but because they need someone to care about them enough to motivate them and give them clear but simple guidance to begin their weight loss journey and to make sure they stay on the right path. You can become that inspiration for them if you genuinely care about people on top of having what it takes to teach anyone how to eat healthy and how to add healthy habits to their everyday lives.
These are only a few examples of things you can do online to make money; the options are endless and really depend on how far you wish to go and what you believe you can do with what you have in you. Don’t doubt yourself: come up with a small business idea you think you can turn into a success and it will be successful if you work hard and keep going.
