In the midst of Stay at Home orders, the entire world is starting to slowly become aware of the wide world of online business. Those days of people asking me how in the world I make money with a blog are more frequent and more aggressive. The thing is, blogging isn’t for everyone. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t an entire world of online business opportunities you can start right where you’re at. That means low cost, start today kind of business. So if you’ve been curious about what you can do, I’ve broken it down to help you get started.

The secret world of online business

Have you ever heard of E-Learning? Maybe you have through virtual online college courses or programs for kids like ABC Mouse. But did you know there are a ton of courses circulating every single day ranging from dancing classes, headstand tutorials, cooking, business, blogging…you name it, there’s a course on it. To top it off, Forbes projects this industry to climb to $325 BILLION by 20205!

So what’s the good news there? If you get in now, you’re still an early adapter! Maybe you’re thinking you’d have no idea what to teach. That’s cool, you might not be meant for the world of virtual course creation. But, are you skilled in certain areas that could help others create their courses?

You see, as these course creators start building their business they need desperate help with emails, social media, writing blog posts, editing podcasts and videos and so much more. That means you can start your own business helping other businesses! Join the free training to make your first $1,000 online!

Anyone can make money online

I am a firm believer that anyone can start to make money online whether or not you are tech savvy. Everyone has different areas that they excel in whether it’s writing, talking, videos, funny memes…there is always a way to use your personality and skills to start making money online.

If you can tell people your favorite Netflix series and give them 3 reasons why then you have the sales skills to start promoting a product or your skills on the internet. The scariest part is putting yourself out there. For sure. But if you can stand firm in your skills and abilities, nothing can stop you.

Harnessing your skillset

Do you have any of the following skills:

  • Typing
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Video editing
  • Money management
  • Image editing
  • Social media

If so, these areas of expertise are in high demand for online business owners! By getting set up with a website, and building an online presence, you can start finding people that are dying to use your services to help grow their business!

Other online money makers

Stepping into your genius

Maybe you are not interested in helping someone else build their own business, because you want to step into your own power. Maybe you want to coach people, create courses or just start a blog where you can write out your opinions and ideas, and get paid for it!

The areas in this category are almost endless. But here are some ideas of how other people are using their genius to make an income online:

  • Drawing
  • Cooking
  • Fitness
  • Crafts
  • Food
  • Money
  • Minimalism

Deciding your business

Once you’ve considered your skillset, it’s time to think about how you want your particular business to look.

  • Do you have a product to sell?
  • Are you wanting to do one on one coaching or consulting?
  • Do you want to create digital courses that you can sell hands-off?
  • Just want a bigger presence online to grow a business you already started?

Figure out what you want your business to look like. Write it down. No matter how crazy it sounds. Then learn how to find your people and turn them into paying customers.

Building your online presence

Building your presence might be a slow process, but one of the fastest ways I have found to grow is by listening to those who have come before us! One month after starting The Fun Sized Life, I was able to make $1,000 per month with just the blog! Now my goal is to share with other potential business owners just how it can be done — online!
