5 Online Businesses to Start in 2019/2020 (Work From Home)



here's five online businesses you can start in 2019 and you can start them and grow them successfully from the comfort of your own home even from the comfort of your very own bed the first one I want to talk about is becoming an influencer specifically a social-media influencer and this can be on any of the various platforms that exist Instagram YouTube snapchat tik-tok and you can become an influencer and make money on any of these platforms you can stick specifically to one you could grow accounts on several of them but the whole idea is to on a platform and grow a following and then there's various ways you can make money off of that following a few ways that you can make money through influencer marketing one way is through brand deals so you acquire a following and then companies will then be willing to pay you to either talk about their product or service or show or post about their product or service to your audience and this works really well for businesses because it gives them a way to reach audiences that they want to reach get their product or service in front of the audience's that they want it to get in front of then it works well for us the influencer because these companies are willing to pay you and or give you free product to promote their product or service and the truth is that brand deals can come in all different shapes and sizes so you can have brand deals that maybe you're just getting free product you can have other feels that maybe it's like a lifelong project with the brand where they're willing to pay you over many many many years so you don't really know you have to kind of figure that out as you go and just negotiate those deals as you go about it but that is a very very real thing happening all the time right now and that's only growing companies are becoming smarter and realizing more and more that that an effective way for them to market and advertise and spend their marketing and advertising dollars is to put their product in influencers hands and have those influencers promote that product to their audience another way influencers can make money and this is a really good way that influencers can make money so is brand deals so are all these ways but is through affiliate marketing affiliate marketing not to be confused with brand deals is again where you're promoting another company's product but how you do it is through a unique link so you can sign up to become an affiliate through pretty much any company's homepage on their website you just scroll down to the bottom and look at the footer you'll almost always find some sort of affiliate sign up affiliate link right there and so you just click that you sign up and then what happens is a unique link is generated that's associated only with you and so when you promote this company's product with that unique link when someone clicks that link and makes a purchase you're guaranteed a commission a percentage of that purchase so let's just run through a quick example real fast let's say that the product they promoting cost $20 and let's say you've grown your following to a hundred thousand followers let's say that you promote the product with your unique link and 1% of your following clicks the link and buys the product so 1,000 people and you make $5 off of each person that purchases means you just made $5,000 for simply promoting somebody else's product with your unique link you didn't have to do any of the product development you don't have to do any of the order fulfillment you'll have to house any inventory literally all you're doing is just promoting somebody else's product and saying to your audience hey go check out this product click this link and when they do that and make a purchase you get kicked back that money from that purchase in each affiliate program will be different it'll have its own rules regulations how much your commission will be all that sort of stuff so it varies but like I said you can go to just the homepage of most companies websites click their affiliate link and start to gather that information for example if you wanted to sign up as an Amazon affiliate Amazon calls it Amazon Associates you just come here to that homepage scroll down click on the affiliate link right here and then you can sign up and become an Amazon associate and actually on Amazon what you can do is you can search any product that exists on Amazon create a unique link and then promote that product and then what also happens is anytime someone clicks that link and any other items they add to their cart you also get a percentage of those items as well so that's pretty cool Amazon doesn't have the highest Commission's but they do include that everything else that someone adds to your cart you also get commission on those items as well so here's an example of just a little bit of affiliate marketing that I do through my youtube channel and I also run ads on my YouTube channel so I get a little bit of ad revenue through my youtube channel the influencer marketing is not my biggest source of income but it is a source of income which is really cool really nice so if you look at this video right here about how to sell on Amazon which is going to be number 4 by the way we're going to talk more about that if you scroll down in the description you'll see that I've linked one of the tools that I use to do product research for selling on Amazon it's called jungle Scout so anybody that clicks this link and buys jungle scout I get commissions from jungle scout for those sales and then if you look at this video right here that I just made recently about my camera gear if you look down here in the description again I linked to my camera gear on Amazon and all of these links right here are Amazon affiliate links so anybody that clicks these and buys these any other products they add to their cart I get Commission's off of that two more ways real fast that influencers can make money for example if you're an influencer on YouTube you can run ads on your videos that's called YouTube ad revenue that's not the most lucrative way to make money with YouTube but that is a way to make money with YouTube the most lucrative way to make money YouTube and this is probably just the most lucrative way to make money as an influencer at all is to sell your own products and there's lots of different kinds of products that you can sell they can be physical products they can be digital products you can sell consulting services if you're a photographer maybe you sell presets if you're a videographer maybe you sell Luntz packages if you have a certain skill that other people are searching for and want to learn you can create a course around that skill and sell that course to people you can sell merch like you see a lot of youtubers doing so there's a lot of different products that an influencer can create to sell and that can be a very lucrative way of making money as an influencer let's move on to the second online business you can start in 2019 that I want to share with you which is drop shipping now drop shipping means is you are selling a product but you never actually house inventory for that product you really never even see that product the way you set it up is so that when an order takes place for the product that you're selling the manufacturer that actually makes that product sends it to your customer for you so you don't have to order it from your manufacturer to yourself and then send it to the customer you just sell the product on your website and then when an order happens the manufacturer receives that order gets all the information and sends the product to your customer for you so it's very hands-off you don't have to do any order fulfillment you don't have to house any inventory nothing like that the main thing you have to do in drop shipping is find really good products to sell that people want to buy and then do the advertising and marketing that's really the though that's that's really what drop shipping is is product research and marketing and advertising so a really common way that people are drop shipping right now is you build a website with Shopify Shopify com this is this website right here and then when you just find products on Aliexpress com which is a website full of Chinese suppliers that already have tons and tons of products and so you find products on there and you list them on your Shopify website and you use a program to integrate Aliexpress with Shopify called uber law and what overload does is when someone buys one of these Alex products on your Shopify website overload relays that order to the Aliexpress supplier and the Aliexpress supplier then ships the product to your customer for you and so again the trick is finding good products to sell and then locking in the marketing and advertising in order to drive people to that product and getting them to buy that product and like I just explained once that happens the supplier in China automatically ships the product to your customer for you you don't have to deal with any of that alright now let's move on to the third online business that I think would be a good smart online business to start in 2019 and can be done from home which is to start a Facebook Ads agency so learn how to run Facebook Ads and then run Facebook ads for other people other companies Facebook advertising is by far the most powerful advertising tool that exists and has ever existed and through and Facebook ads is also how you advertise on Instagram so you can run Facebook ads and Instagram ads for people and right now most of the whole world is on Facebook and Instagram so it's an extremely smart place to be advertising especially because it's relatively cheap right now the cost of advertising on Facebook Instagram is going to keep climbing as years go on but right now it's a pretty good deal especially if you know what you're doing and that's the thing right now is not a lot of people know how to run Facebook ads well not a lot of people know how to run Instagram as well not a lot of people know how to run them at all but what most companies do know is that they should be learning and knowing how to run Facebook ads and Instagram ads so there's a huge opportunity for anybody that can learn Facebook ads and become skilled with Facebook ads and is willing to run in facebook ads and Instagram ads for other businesses and if Facebook advertising is something that interests you I've made several videos on how to run Facebook ads how to run Facebook ads profitably successfully so make sure enjoy I've even got an entire playlist so make sure and check out those videos of mine on Facebook advertising the fourth way and this is person one of my favorite ways to make online is to sell product on amazon.com specifically private label products using FBA let me break down what both of those are so private label just means that it's a product that already exists but no one owns any patent or anything on it so you can go to a supplier and buy that product and you can put your own brand on it and now you can sell it an FBA is fulfilled by Amazon which is Amazon system of warehouses to which you can send your product all of your inventory and when a customer buys your product on amazon.com Amazon will pick pack and ship that product to your customer for you so you don't have to house any of your inventory you don't have to deal with any of your order fulfillment and also you don't have to really do any customer service because if you use FBA Amazon will actually handle your customer service for you so it's extremely hands-off can be pretty passive and Amazon is so massive there's so many millions of people shopping on Amazon that if you find a product that's very high in demand that a lot of people are searching for and you list that product on Amazon you can start getting tons and tons and tons and tons of sales just just because there's such high amounts of traffic high amounts of shoppers on amazon.com and what's really amazing about this is that there are actually tools that you can use to go on to Amazon and see what are the most successful what are the most popular highest selling products on Amazon so I just want to show you what that tool looks like real fast so if you just go to amazon.com let's just run a quick search for fidgets spinners you guys remember the fidgit spinners now if I open this tool it's just a Chrome extension this one is called Jungle Scout right here it pulls up this data box where it brings in a bunch of information but if you look right here specifically there's a sales column and this column tells you how many sales are happening of this product each month so you can run tons of searches on Amazon pull up the data and you can see exactly how many sales are happening for all the different kinds of products that are on Amazon so then what you do is you do a bunch of research figure out which products are very high in demand which products are high selling products on Amazon once you've identified one of those products on amazon.com then you go to Alibaba comm and you search for that product and it'll pull up a bunch of different suppliers in China that sell that product you start to message them you figure out prices and all that don't you figure all that out and that you can sell their product profitably you place an order with one of those Chinese suppliers then you have them send all that inventory your new your new order to one of Amazon's warehouses and then once it's in the warehouse you need to make sure that you have a listing for it with pictures description and all that but once it hits the warehouse it goes live on amazon.com and not people can search and find your product on amazon.com when they do and when they buy it Amazon picks packs and ships it to your customer for you and you just keep the profits like I said I right now I'm selling products on Amazon I have been for a couple of years now it's a great way to make money you can make a lot of money selling on Amazon if you do the product research font right and find really good products to sell I'm moving on to the last one now number five is to create and sell a course and you can create of course really around pretty much anything how to do a back flip how to cook how to take photos how to run Facebook Ads all different sorts of things how to become an influencer there's all different kinds of topics you can create courses around what's so cool about courses is it doesn't really cost anything to start if you have a camera you have all you need to create a course I just need to hit record and start spilling your knowledge and information and tutorials into video and then what you can do is go to a website like teachable calm and upload all those videos and you can organize those videos into a course with different lessons in different modules and then it makes it easy for customers to buy a course and access your course in in organized way once you've decided on a topic and you've created your course the last thing that you need to do is drive traffic to your course you need to tell people about it you need to promote it and there's different ways you can do that you can advertisements like Facebook ads you can use your influence or audiences especially if you've built that audience around the topic that your course is about then it would make a lot of sense to sell that course to your audience so there's five online businesses that you can start and grow in 2019 from the comfort of your own home
