This list was meant to point you in the right direction. I linked to other articles that give in-depth instruction on how to start these businesses from scratch.
1. Start Blogging
Blogging has been around for years, however, it has gained more traction as of late. If you are a creative writer you can do really well with blogging. Bloggers can make $50 month if they are consistent. For step by step help click here.
2. Vlogging (Youtuber)
Vlogging is very similar to blogging, the only difference is your talking on video. Vloggers make their money by how many views they get. Usually works out to $100 for every 1000 views. If you can get your following up, you can make money.
Another good thing about Vlogging is you don’t need to buy any equipment. If you own a smartphone your in business.
What exactly is e-commerce? E-commerce is a transaction conducted electronically over the internet. Whenever you buy or sell online you are involved in e-commerce. Great info on e-commerce.
4. Start A Podcast
A Podcast is similar to vlogging except you are not on video, everything is on audio. A podcast is like a radio show. You make money by having advertisers buy time on your podcast. Info on podcast.
5. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketers use their website or blog to sell other peoples product. The trick to being a successful affiliate marketer is finding your niche (A specific product that it is high demand). Make sure you partner with a good affiliate marketing company to show you how to be an effective marketer. I recommend Wealthy Affiliate. They have great training and helpful coaching for free.
6. Freelance Writing
I’ve written exclusively about this topic in another article. Freelance writing.
There are more businesses you can start online, but I wanted to get you started on the ones that will not require a ton of money to get started. All of these businesses you should be able to start for less than $100.
A word of caution, if someone is asking you for large amounts of money to start your online business its probably a scam. If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Starting a business online is the same as starting a brick and mortar store. You get out of it what you put in. Most of the business I mention takes time and consistency to succeed. If you know that going in it won’t catch you by surprise when you have to put in 60 hour weeks.
