1. TikTok allows you to become a personal shopper, and then promote your services there
TikTok is an ecommerce platform that is growing rapidly. TikTok users are more likely to buy products from the app than they are shopping on brands’ websites. However, not all users have the time or patience to shop. This is where personal shopping services can be a viable business model.
Personal shopping is when you buy items for someone else, in this case, a TikTok user. It is important to be able to find the best TikTok deals. Also, it helps to know how to search for products on the app. You will also need to be able to use the ecommerce features of TikTok to make a purchase. You might consider offering your services to friends on TikTok to gain experience and possibly get some testimonials to share with potential clients.
Once you feel confident doing product research and shopping on TikTok for products, you can market your services through word of mouth, social networking, and offline marketing.
2. Your own brand of novelty t-shirts
You can make custom t-shirts if you are a creative person who can express people’s passions through art. T-shirts are used by people to express their identity, values, and sometimes even the influencers that they love.
Although t-shirts may not seem unique by themselves, the fact that there are so many niching possibilities makes them a viable business. No other brand will sell your designs, regardless of whether they have stunning artwork, catchy jokes or LGBTQ slogans.
Find a reliable print-on demand company and create a Shopify storefront. Create original designs and add them to your shirts. You will get paid when someone orders through your business.
3. Start a podcast to build multiple streams of income
Although podcasts are free to download, the people who make them are not always paid. Podcasters can make an income by promoting their content through affiliate programs, Patreon tiered subscriptions, or hosting live events online.
Podcasting starts with a topic that you are passionate about, such as a book, hobby, or educational topic. You can then create a weekly podcast with people who enjoy discussing these topics.
To create podcast episodes, you’ll need to have a microphone and some knowledge in audio editing. To build an audience, set up weekly recording sessions and start to record. You can begin to use different monetization strategies to increase your podcast’s revenue over time.
4. Offer virtual assistance for other businesses
Virtual assistants are in high demand as more companies shift their focus to online operations. These virtual assistants are contract workers who can perform a variety of tasks such as bookkeeping, email marketing, and personal tasks such as managing schedules and arranging trips. As a part-time or full-time employee, you could help.
Virtual assistants can be hired by business owners from any part of the world. This means that you don’t have to limit your business to one location. You can stand out from your competition by becoming skilled in specific tasks, such as optimizing sales funnels and building post-purchase emails.
5. Start a flower and gift delivery business
Everybody loves the feeling of receiving thoughtful gifts or flowers from someone they care about. You can be that person who gives this feeling to others. You can easily start a business from your home with a small investment and some creativity.
You can use social media platforms like Instagram or Facebook to find out what gifts are most popular in your local area and then create a package for potential customers. You can also base your ideas on the following popular themes:
- Celebrate gifts for birthdays, Mother’s Day and Father’s Days as well as marriages or new babies
- Baskets for the home: Cleaning, car, or gardening products; cheeses, chocolates, beer, or wine selections
- Spa/beauty products for personal care
- Hobbies: Coffee or tea baskets; games; films; seasonal products.
- After focusing on local delivery, you can slowly expand your reach to other areas.
6. Mobile detailing services available in your local area
Mobile detailing is a term that you may have heard of. Mobile detailing is the act of cleaning up and restoring vehicles at the owner’s home. This eliminates the need to have a physical location for the business, which reduces startup costs and overhead.
It is possible to start your own mobile detailing company with a relatively small investment. Most detailing kits cost less that $100. Your customers will be mostly from areas with more than one vehicle, such as suburbs and gated communities.
Distribute flyers to let people know that you offer auto detailing services. To encourage repeat business, offer discounts and gift cards to customers who are first time customers. You might also consider creating a Google Business Profile to allow customers to leave reviews about your service. Positive reviews can help you attract more clients without spending any advertising or marketing dollars.
