What is it that people are always you for advice for or asking you questions about or What is it that you find yourself doing hour after hour day after day for months or for a year on it.
2. What You’re passionate about
For Example, maybe exceptionally skilled at typing really really fast but there if there’s no passion there and you don’t really want to spend your career teaching other people to type probably best not to do that.
One of the keys and one of the factors behind successful online courses is passion, energy, And excitement which means you have got to find something that you actually truly enjoy and actually want to help other people learn as well.
3. Is There Market Demands?
Is there market demands which means are there people out there who are willing to pay you for your course essentially are they willing to buy what you are selling this is incredibly important obviously if you spend all sorts of time and energy building an online course that nobody wants well awkward this is why before creating an online course or before doing any of the business ideas to be sharing with you, you want to do a little bit of due diligence a little bit of research to try to figure out if there is the market demand and if you have competitors in the space?
You see having a competitor or having competitions is actually a really good thing typically it proves market demand because if there are in business well means that you might be able to be in business as well.
2. Online Coaching And Consulting
The online coaching and online consulting business have really exploded in the last few years and in the best way possible, again, mostly driven by demand for these types of services. But with all kinds of new technology and new tools. Well, it really makes offering these services easier and more practical and more profitable than ever before.
Now the key to finding what area you want to focus in with your online coaching or with your online consulting really comes down to the same questions we asked when you were looking at an online course topic, which is,
1. what skills what talents, what area of expertise do you have?
2. what are you passionate about? What do you enjoy talking about and helping others achieve.
3. what areas have sufficient market demand essentially meaning there are other competitors in the space, there are other courses, there are books written on the topic, there are workshops, things like that, that show that people are willing to pay for the solutions that you may be able to offer, the odds are good that you’ve got a skill you have some kind of experience or some kind of knowledge or talent that other people would be willing to pay to get access to help them shorten their learning curve and really achieve some kind of result.
Now some markets are naturally going to be more profitable, whether we’re talking about online coaching, or online consulting, or the online course market, or any of the expert-based businesses.
These are going to be markets like health, or business or marketing or relationships or things like that.
3. Home Services
Now, the reason that a home services business is such a great business idea, especially if you’re just getting started is one because there’s a tonne of demand.
And there’s always going to be demand for this type of thing, especially today when people are busy, like really busy. And to just like with an online course or with coaching or consulting, well, it doesn’t require too much overhead or too much investment or too much capital, basically too much money to get started.
Now, when it comes to Home Services, there’s a tonne of different options available, so you really can pick and choose and find the best one for you.
For example, you could offer home cleaning services, you could do lawn care or landscaping, you could offer home organization and help people organize their homes, their offices, their garages, pretty much everything home organization is a huge trend right now.
And you’ll see all kinds of shows popping up on Netflix and new books being launched on it. And you’ll see all kinds of shows popping up on Netflix and new books being launched on it.
Now, bookkeeping is going to be one of the first services one of the first tasks that most business owners most entrepreneurs need to delegate need to outsource, and need to get help with, which means that this business service is always going to be in demand.
As a bookkeeper. It’s your job to help the business with things like financial reports and tracking transactions and deposits and credits and putting together simple reports and things like that.
Essentially, helping businesses stay on top of their finances and their accounting, if you like numbers are highly organized are a stickler for details. And don’t mind taking some basic bookkeeping training.
Well, this might be a really good business idea for you. Another benefit of this is bookkeeping work can usually be done remotely, which means you can live the laptop lifestyle and work from anywhere that you want, and largely set your own hours.
5. Virtual Assistance or Online Business Manager
Let’s talk about the next business idea which is to be a virtual assistant or online business manager with more new online businesses starting today than ever before.
And with this number continuing to grow month after month, and year after year, getting started as a virtual assistant, it’s a pretty decent business idea for the right kind of person as a virtual assistant, your work is going to be varied, although maybe somewhat repetitive by taking care of things like scheduling and calendars and basic administrative stuff and maybe some social media posting, too.
As you build up some clients and start to get more experience as a virtual assistant. Well, you can sort of self promote yourself to the role of online business manager, which is kind of a cross between the virtual assistant and full-blown Chief Operating Officer if you’re highly organized, incredibly productive self-starter, and you’re the kind of person that took notes in high school with different colored markers and highlighted them and organized them all nicely with tabs, well, then you’re going to be perfect for a virtual assistant or online business manager role.
6. Food Truck
Starting a food truck is definitely going to require more capital, more investment, basically more money than any of the other ideas on this list.
However, if you’re the kind of person that may have always wanted to start a restaurant really likes food, well, a food truck is a safer, easier, and lower-cost way to kind of enter the food services market.
You see, when it comes to restaurants, they’ve got a famously high failure rate somewhere around 80 or 90% of restaurants fail within about five years, which is terrifying food trucks, on the other hand, well, they still have a pretty high failure rate around 60%, I believe, but that’s a little bit less at least than 90%, which again is terrifying.
Plus, with a food truck Well, you could always drive to a different location and you don’t have as much sunk costs into a building and into the facility so could always sell it.
The thing with this business idea though is while it might be great for some people, it is going to be a significantly higher risk due largely to the amount of money involved.
So it’s incredibly important that you do your due diligence, which means researching everything that you possibly can on this idea including going to Amazon and buying every book on starting a food truck for which there’s actually quite a few subscribing to food truck blogs and watching food truck YouTube videos and essentially reading and researching and listening and watching everything you can about the subject before diving in.
7. Social Media Marketing Agency
The idea to start a Social Media Marketing Agency first came up a few years ago and a lot of people dove in headfirst smack their head on the bottom and left never to be seen again.
Obviously you don’t want that to happen to you. So here’s what you need to do in order to avoid failing in this what could be a very profitable industry and one that I’ve used in the past and with great success first, to truly succeed with a Social Media Marketing Agency, you actually need to know how to do social media marketing.
This means learning and studying and watching videos and taking courses and reading books and doing everything you can to build up the foundational knowledge and essentially learn the fundamentals of marketing, social media marketing, so you can actually get results for your clients.
Next, you need to understand that the hardest part of running a Social Media Marketing Agency is getting clients, which means you’re going to need to spend a considerable amount of your day and of your time on your own marketing.
Now, fortunately, you’re going to need to spend a considerable amount of your time and of your energy on your own marketing no matter what business you choose, because the hardest part of all businesses is getting clients marketing and essentially getting your name out there.
But for a Social Media Marketing Agency, it’s that much more important because learning marketing is not only going to help you, but it’s also going to help your clients so it’s win-win all around long story short marketing.
Marketing is a major business function that’s made up of a bunch of other parts, one of which of course is advertising, but there’s also a tonne others like PR or your research.
