If you have always wanted to start your own business, but felt like it was just too difficult and even expensive or that you wouldn’t know how to even get started, then the good news is that nowadays it’s so much easier than it’s ever been to start a business right from your living room. You don’t need a 50 page business plan, you don’t need bank loan, and you don’t need all of the fancy things that you may have needed 20 years ago to start a business thanks to things like social media and the internet making it easier for us to connect with people from all over the world, so in this post we’re going to share with you some of the online businesses that you can start from your living room.
If you’re skilled in an area such as copywriting, web design, graphic design, or even illustration, then you could find yourself having a great career as a freelancer, and this is definitely something that you can do from your living room and you can start with as much as your laptop if you need to. Of course getting started as a freelancer isn’t quite as simple as opening up your laptop and expecting clients to come flooding in – you definitely do have to do some work, but it’s worth it, and you can work completely on your own schedule, work for the kinds of clients that you like and make as much money as you want to make.
If you love working with people and helping them figure out some of the things that may be holding them back in any area of their life and guiding them towards practical and tangible solutions, then a career as a coach could be the right path for you. Whether you want to focus on being a business coach helping people master things like marketing or the law of attraction, or working as a health coach, or even as a relationship coach, there are so many different paths that you can take when it comes to coaching because people are always seeking solutions and help to better themselves in different areas of their life.
If you’re looking for a more passive business model, then affiliate marketing could be an amazing choice for you. Basically how affiliate marketing works is that you promote and recommend other people’s products and services by using things like blogging and social media and then when people click on a unique link for that product or service assigned to you, then you make a small commission on the product or service.
This can easily mount up over the months – especially with things like subscription services, and when you’re promoting multiple products, so although it can take a while to get off the ground, it’s definitely a rather lucrative business model that you can definitely do straight from your living room.
Ever wanted to have your own online store but didn’t want to get into the logistics side of things by storing inventory and paying money upfront for products that may not sell?
Then dropshipping could be the best option here for you. Dropshipping basically works the same as a traditional retail model, however the difference is that when your customer buys from you, the order goes straight to the dropshipper who then ships the product, takes care of all the packaging and you’ll never see the product, but you get paid and then you pay the dropshipper the difference, so there’s less overheads, no inventory, and no postage and packaging to deal with.
