Tired of applying for jobs, Tired of your current job, Tired of rejection emails. Don’t worry, These are business you can start online with low or no capital involved. Most people spend hours online surfing social media without any gain or profit. You dont have to be filthy rich to start a business, you can start a business with less than 10,000 naira.
Here are lists of businesses you can start with low capital
Event and Party Planner
So, if you have a Facebook account (I’m sure you have one and didn’t participate to this #deletefacebook thing) and you create a Facebook page, this is literally a business you can start with 0 capital. This is an exciting opportunity for people who want to work in a sociable environment, and again it’s an home-based role. If you are, in particular, someone who knows places, clubs, and nice sites, then this is 100% your choice.
This could be the future of modern offices, so keep that in mind! Being a Virtual Assistant, of course, requires professionality when contacted, as you might start working with very short notices, so you will be required to be ready anytime, really.
Become An Affiliate Marketing Entrepreneur
Do not confuse being an Affiliate Marketing Entrepreneur with being an Influencer, that is very important. You could set up multiple affiliate channels (Instagram is still the best platform if you wanna do this) with different topics. Affiliate marketing is a great way to gain a passive income and it requires very little capital to start with.
SMA (Social Media Agency)
Social Media is something that moves businesses all over the world, and it’s only getting bigger. If you think about it, having your business page on Facebook, in 2018, is a must. 5 years ago, was something that people thought was a bit “too much”. If you are a Social Media literate, and you know about how to interact with people if you are a great content creator and if you have a good knowledge of PPC (Pay Per Click), then this might be your choice.
There are no guidelines, really. You could be focusing on pure content creation or Digital Marketing. In the end, your SMA will reflect your approach when it comes to Digital Marketing, which is a great thing.
Sell Your Art
With many different websites like Fiverr, for example, you will be able to sell your music, your graphics, your videos to a very big audience. Keep in mind that using this type of websites to sell your work is purely a numbers’ game: you don’t wanna spend 400 hours on a project that will be sold for 5 dollars and has at least 200+ competitors. If you are interfacing with this kind of reality, you want your rankings to go high, so people who are browsing the platform will find you easily.
I know this could sound like “killing the art” for you, but this is the worst part when it comes to Content Factories. Of course, if you are that creative and are able to create some incredible art within very little time frames, then this could be a perfect fit for you.
My personal hint would be using templates to help you out at the very initial stage of your work (this particularly applies to graphic designers, record producers and videomakers who focus on looping content like Beeple). Keep in mind that the content should be copyright free, so be careful with samples, producers!
