Looking to Start a Business from Home using the Internet?
Here are six businesses for 2019 that you can do online, right from the comfort of home…
1. Sell Your Creations
Do you like to create art, jewelry, hand-made soaps, fashion accessories, woodworking items or other hand made products in your spare time?
Why not turn your hobby into an income stream.
That’s what thousands of people have done at Etsy.com – a global marketplace where people connect to buy and sell unique goods.
Hey, there’s no better way to make a living than doing what you love to do. And that’s what Etsy is all about — turning your favorite hobby or pastime into cash.
Opening shop on Etsy is free then there are three basic selling fees: a listing fee, a transaction fee, and a payment processing fee.
2. Local Business Online Consultant
Of all the small and home businesses operating in your local area, chances are about 30% of them to do not market online.
They still do not have a website, they do not use email marketing and they are losing business to competitors who DO promote online. Deep down they know they need to be online but they think it will cost them too much time or money.
As a local business online consultant you handle it all for them! You can set up a website for them and as their business grows, yours will too. They’ll see how effective online marketing is and they’ll want more of your services.
It is a fact that most businesses never even do the basics, such as claim their free ‘Google My Business‘ page.
Do that for them for a small fee or even for free, and you’ll get them more local customers. That will open the door to them wanting more services from you!
You can then offer to setup an opt-in form for them, an autoresponder and do regular mailings. (All for an extra monthly charge of course! In fact, see below for even more related services you can offer.)
3. Social Media Consultant
Most small businesses cannot afford to hire a full-time employee to manage their social media.
If you enjoy spending time on sites and apps such as Facebook, Youtube, Pinterest, SnapChat and Twitter, why not get paid for it!
Most small businesses owners simply do not have enough time in the day to manage their own social media marketing.
That’s where you come in. You can change monthly for a basic plan that includes content creation and regular posting.
You can even automate the entire process using a web based tool such as this one.
4. Reputation Management Consultant
It’s a fact that most people read multiple reviews at independent sites before hiring a local business.
And just one or two bad reviews can really hurt the revenue of a local business.
As a reputation management consultant, you can help these businesses regain their hard earned trust and get more clients.
If helping businesses (and individuals) with their online reputation interests you, check out Reputation.com for ideas on how to implement a strategy.
They offer multiple services ranging from around $5 a month to as much as $10,000 a year. Reputation management is growing rapidly and can be implemented on a local scale or a global scale. You can even outsource much of the work at places like Fiverr.com.
5. Be a Niche Blogger
Niche blogging is fun and easy. You write about a specific topic that interests you and monetize your blog in multiple ways.
I’ve been doing this right here at this blog for a couple decades now.
The best ways to monetize your blog is with affiliate links, your own products and services, and with ads such as Google Adsense banners.
If you want to be a blogger but don’t know how how to get started, we can build your niche blog for you so you can simply take over and start blogging.
5. Online Coach
Do you know that coaching is now a Billion Dollar a Year Industry? That’s right, I said Billion with a B!
Nowadays, people are happily paying for coaching in every niche imaginable.
If you’ve had success in any particular area, why not help others succeed at it.
You don’t any need formal education, training or certification to be a coach, you simply have to be willing to help others in a particular niche.
There are coaches in all sorts of niches, including but not limited to..
- Starting a business
- Weight loss
- Becoming a better parent or spouse
- Online dating
If online coaching interests you then here’s some more info on how you can earn money from it.
There you have it. Six businesses that are very likely to grow in 2019 and over the coming years.
Why not jump into one and position yourself as a leader. After all, there’s nothing better than earning your living from home. I’ve been doing it for 20 years now and the time freedom it gives you is phenomenal.
No daily commute in rush-hour traffic.
No boss to answer to.
And best of all, you can get paid for doing things you truly like to do!
Great suggestions, Jim! I have a fairly new affiliate marketing blog online now and am planning another site as well in the local business online consultant niche.
