You can easily build a business from anywhere, even your bedroom. If you were theoretically locked in your room for months on end, here is a list of ideas that you could start today:
1. E-Commerce Store.
With platforms like WooCommerce and Shopify, you can build a t-shirt or hat store in a few quick steps. I’ve used a dropshipping platform called Printful to automate shipping and manufacturing for my shop.
2. Marketing Agency.
If you have a background promoting businesses, you can tell people you have the skills to help them out. Start with a niche and industry, like social media for restaurants, as an example.
3. Startup App.
If you have a problem that can be solved by an app idea, start building a mobile app. You can use Upwork or Toptal to find developers passionate about your idea. You can then offer them stock options in return for their services.
4. Self-Publishing Empire.
Blogs can be a great way to generate business. If you have affiliate marketing set up, companies will pay you to promote their products. WordPress is the gold standard if you’re looking to start a blog today.
6. Freelance / Consulting Firm.
7. YouTube Brand Channel.
If you like creating videos, try YouTube. If you produce quality content and ideas, you will build a following quickly. With enough views, you will have the opportunity to get paid for advertising when people land on your video.
8. Online Community.
With Slack, you can start a community on any topic and charge a fee or subscription to join.
