Are you interested in starting your own business, but you have a very small budget to begin with? The idea of launching a business has long been deemed a very expensive venture and is only a common practice among a small group of people. Thankfully, the technology era has leveled the playing field for starting a business. It is now possible to get started with hardly any cash in hand. And by gaining the right know-how and skills, you can own a very rewarding business. In this article, I have compiled a list of 4 profitable online business ideas that you can set in motion, with just a notebook computer and internet access.
1. Internet Site Designer.
Website development has created many business systems over the past couple of decades. Now that there are open source platforms like WordPress, it is quite possible for anyone with a computer/laptop and an internet connection can become a website designer and developer, even if you have basic technical skills. If you are uncertain of whether or not you are able to start a business, creating websites for clients, then a short dip into YouTube will reveal counless “How-To” videos on WordPress, which can fill in the blanks and give you the assurance to offer your service to potential customers.
In addition to, website development, you can offer hosting services to your clients. And no, you don’t have to own a server. You can get hosting services for very little investment. You can then offer the service as part of your package for website development. This price is just set a bit higher than what you shell out money for the hosting.
Online business ideas like website development, don’t require that you have a business space, so if you are strapped for cash and don’t want to incur the monthly cost of an internet bill, then this is the kind of business for you. You can take your laptop to your favorite cafe shop, and make use of their free internet service. Make sure you buy something from the shop, as this will keep you and the business owner happy.
3. Become a Social network Manager.
New social media platforms are springing up all over the internet. These social media platforms have huge audiences at any given time of the day. This makes it important for businesses to create and maintain a social presence on these social media platforms if they want to be visible to potential customers.
This requisite for a social media presence has created a new and unique business opportunity. It is very tedious to spend time creating content to add to the social media platforms. And with so many platforms to have to keep track of, it can be a full-time job.
Many firms are in need of a social media manager, and you can help. This is one of the internet-based business ideas that will not become saturated. New companies are emerging every day and need to maintain a social media presence. So you will never run short of a potential client list.
It is very easy to create content and maintain multiple social media accounts. You can use platforms like Hootsuite to manage several social media accounts simultaneously. You can schedule posts and content for several weeks in advance. You can then bill clients a monthly fee for managing these accounts, which will be a lot lower than having to hire an employee to provide this service full-time.
4. Become a Mobile phone App Developer.
It is possible for non-techs to create mobile apps for prospects with no coding skills. You can use mobile content management platforms like MAPS – Mobile Apps Productions Software.
These platforms allow you to put together cell phone apps and publish them to the Google Play and Apple app stores. In addition to publishing the apps on the app stores, the content management platforms allow you to give back-end access to clients so that they can manage and update their mobile apps. You can also maintain the apps on the client’s behalf and charge an extra monthly charge for management and hosting of the mobile app.
More than 91 % of the world’s population have a mobile or mobile device. And as individuals become more attached to their mobile devices and more demanding of what it can deliver and provide quickly, the demand for smartphone apps will be even higher. More than 95 % of businesses do not have a mobile app for their business. You can develop a mobile app for these businesses at a price that they can support. This is one of the online business ideas that has hardly any competitors and significant earning potentials.
2. Set Up An Affiliate Marketing Business.
You can start a business online, selling your own products, or selling other people’s products. The clear advantage of this business model is that you can get under way with no cash. You earn a percentage of what you sell. The only downside is that commisions are quite low and it can be difficult to grow your business by yourself.
The solution then is why not try an online digital franchise-style business? This is one of the most lucrative online business ideas I know of. This is different from the affiliate model because instead of being a sole-trader, having to fend for yourself and do everything else for yourself, you get support through being part of a team.
We’ve all seen the huge success that franchise businesses like Pizza- Hut, Olive Garden, and McDonald’s have had. This is because they function alongside tried and tested successful business models that produce results – Only thing is brick and mortar businesses like this will only start turning a profit three of four years after starting your business.
iPAS2 is a tried and tested franchise-style business that has already produced it’s first 6 and 7 figure earners (don’t expect to earn that without putting in a lot of work!)
It stands for Internet Prospect Acceleration System and you can try it out for yourself for a risk-free $7 – this is for Serious Business Builders ONLY
