Business is dynamic. Having a brick and mortar establishment may have been the dream of many business owners in the past, but a new age of business has hit the market and with the advancements in technology, the realm of digital business is here to stay. Why not embrace it? With lower start-up costs, taking business online has become easier and more cost-effective than ever before.
Give yourself the digital edge; there are numerous ways to make a profit by going digital. Here are six ideas to get your creative juices pumping.
1. SEO Consultant
Do you understand the intricacies of search engines and know how to read and analyze platforms like Google Analytics? Use these skills to help small businesses excel. New business owners don’t often realize the importance of the marketing mix and being an expert in SEO can help get eager business owners off on the right foot, using the right keywords to target their specific market, creating content and building traffic will all serve to strengthen their business tactics.i
2. Business Coaching
Do you have the experience and know-how in business? Have you worked for a fortune 500 company or multinational? Maybe you have launched you own successful online business and you want to help others to do the same. Don’t wait; take your talents and make it into a profitable profession, helping new business owners and entrepreneurs navigate the bumpy road towards their business goals.
3. Specialized Retailers
With the prevalence of ecommerce, there is a platform to reach consumers across the globe and in your own back yard. With a creatively designed product or service, there is no limit on your business potential. Work with a web designer to build your website from scratch or use one of thousands of templates available today.
4. Social Media Consulting
Large companies invest in hiring a staff or outsourcing their social media needs to marketing agencies, but small businesses typically do not have that luxury. With so little time and the increasing importance of handing social media correctly, there is a demand for professionals with the gift of networking online to take advantage of their particular talents and make a very lucrative living doing something that for some, is second nature.
5. Website Rental
It’s 2017, and web development is a hot career field, but why follow the path of thousands? Chart your own journey and invest your time into the new concept of web rentals.
Creating websites from scratch for specific companies is slowly becoming out-of-practice. Instead, web developers are creating several websites at a time for a niche market and renting customizable versions of each site to businesses.ii
6. Virtual Reality
All you need is the right set of goggles and a computer hardware system, and virtual reality is yours. Not tech-savvy? Don’t fret. You do not have to be a web programming guru to create a virtual-centered business. Pick up a pen and write about it. Sell products or create a service catering to virtual reality. If you have the investment capital, hire a tech genius, and take your ideas and make them into reality by designing state-of-the-art software and games.
