1. BECOME AN INFLUENCER
The first business is one that you’ve definitely heard of unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of years and it takes on a lot of different forms from painters to bikini models to personal finance gurus. I’m talking about being an influencer and everybody pretty much knows what an influencer is except well actually maybe your grandpa
Influencers are in the business of being a brand themselves and selling their personality through social media and according to statista.com, the total Instagram influence industry was worth a total of $2.3 billion at the end of 2020 and the YouTube influencer industry was worth a whopping $19.7 billion and what does that mean for you and for me? Well, it means that we have a whole lot of money out there that can be made
HOW TO START AN INFLUENCER BUSINESS
You don’t even have to be the best-looking or funniest person out there. Sure, a lot of influencers on Instagram are good-looking models or comedic geniuses but there are plenty of other ways to become an influencer; all you got to do is find something that you’re knowledgeable about and passionate about and start creating engaging content that people are going to want to look at
Do your research, find out what kind of content people like in your niche. If you want to start a painting YouTube channel, for example, find out what style of painting your audience responds best to. If you want to be a fitness influencer, see what kind of workouts get the most engagement, then just start creating content every day and the views will start rolling in; after that, you’ll start raking in money from Instagram or youtube and you can actually find other sources of revenue as well like sponsorships or merchandising
There’s a lot of money to be made as an influencer and all you really need to do is have a phone and be a bit creative
2. SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER
I know some people don’t like being in front of a camera but you’re still a wizard with social media well, instead of becoming an influencer, you can get paid to run other people’s social media accounts.
You see, social media is a vital aspect of every kind of business these days and a lot of other businesses don’t really know how to run their social media accounts or they just don’t have the time and that’s where you come in. If you can demonstrate a good understanding of social media and how to appeal to an online audience, you can get hired as a social media consultant and get paid to run Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Tik-Tok, and Twitter accounts for other people and businesses
Now, that may kind of seem like a bore but do you think that “The Weekend or WizKid” runs their own social accounts? That’s right; if you can get your social media consulting business really going, you might even be able to hang out with famous people like me and other huge celebrities because well, they want you to post their photos of them on their social accounts
HOW TO START A SOCIAL MEDIA CONSULTANCY BUSINESS
So, to get started in this business, you need to get a bunch of followers on one of your personal accounts and that’s pretty much your portfolio to show them that you know how this game works; then start reaching out to businesses or individuals and start offering your services.
There are a ton of opportunities out there for social media consultants and all it really takes is some hard work, and a set of fast working twitter fingers
3. PERSONAL CHEF (COOKING BUSINESS)
The social media industry definitely got a boost during the pandemic, the restaurant industry
definitely took a huge hit luckily there’s still a zero money down business out there for anyone with culinary training. So you love to cook? Cooking dinner is the best part of your day, well then, heck why not make it a business and get paid to cook for others?
Sure you could try to get a job in a stuffy commercial kitchen at the Hilton hotel or something or you could just start your own business, make your own hours and get paid a whole lot more. I’m talking about becoming a personal chef
In this business, you’ll be responsible for catering small events, like anniversaries, birthday parties, or
graduations or if you’re lucky, someone might hire you to cook for them every night of the week.
HOW TO START A PERSONAL CHEF/COOKING BUSINESS
To be a personal chef, you’ll need to have some good interpersonal skills because no one wants to have someone in their home who they can’t talk with. You’ll also need to have a strong social media presence with some mouth-watering pictures of your food and then, of course, you’ll need to know how to cook in a lot of different styles
Now, I don’t care how good your spaghetti is and your meatballs are way better than the next guys, no one wants to eat Italian every single night, so mix it up with some African, Japanese, Indian, Mexican and mediterranean cooking and have a rotating menu that keeps your clients on the edge of their seats. A free bottle of champagne for your special occasion will also help you keep your clients happy too.
Maybe your cooking game isn’t all that strong but you’re a different kind of artist. Have you ever
heard of Etsy? Now, for all you painters, sculptors, crafters, and weavers, how would you like your artistic hobby to become a business where you can sell your works all over the world and make a
living while doing it?
If you haven’t heard of Etsy, it’s basically the biggest marketplace in the world for people to sell their handmade works and there are some people out there who are making some serious money on Etsy from their art. Setting up a shop is entirely free, however, they do take a cut of your sales but if you start selling enough you’re not even gonna notice because maybe you make some amazing jewelry with exotic crystals, get yourself set up on Etsy, you’re gonna need to have a strong social media presence just like with all the other businesses where you can promote your works and create a demand for them but once you do, you can start directing all your followers to your Etsy shop and watch the money pour in
The best part about it is that you can make a living doing what you love and spreading your artistic style all over the world
5. BECOME AN ONLINE DATING CONSULTANT
Believe it or not, not everyone is as smooth and romantic as you and me and a lot of people out there have trouble navigating the world of online dating, so it’s time for your romantic abilities to be put to the test and become an online dating consultant
In this business, you find people who need your help writing their online profiles plus answering messages from their prospective love interests and updating them about potential matches. The truth
of the matter is that some people just don’t have the time to commit to all that goes into online dating and some people just don’t have the romantic know-how to do it; so by becoming an online dating consultant, you’ll be doing a great service to people and help them find their one true love
HOW TO BECOME AN ONLINE DATING CONSULTANT
If you want to get your start in this business, you could build yourself a website which you can do through Squarespace or WordPress, and then you should market your services on sites like Fiverr or Upwork. While you may not think that this would be a big industry, you’d be surprised by how many people out there are willing to hire a professional to help them with online dating. So get your services out there on the internet and start making money by playing matchmaker
6. DOMAIN NAME FLIPPING
Have you ever been on a website and thought, wow, that’s a really clever domain name? Well, some people actually make a living by predicting what domains are going to become popular and buying them up before they actually get used
As a domain name buyer, you spend your days identifying trends on the internet and then buy up all the domain names that relate to that trend. Then, when someone wants to use one of the domain names that you bought, they have to buy it from you because you own that web property and now supply and
demand. There’s only one, so you get to charge a whole lot more for it than you paid
Let’s say everyone on the internet is suddenly talking about dogecoin and so you buy up the domain
called “dogecoindays.com” or something and then you list that domain name on the marketplace like afternick and the bids will start falling in to buy the domain; meaning you just flipped a profit
Easy now, if you want to make serious cash doing this though, you’re going to want to buy domain names in bulk and a lot of them may never get sold, so it’s important to buy domain names that people are likely going to want in the future and yes this business isn’t completely free to start but you can easily get it rolling with just a couple of bucks and an eye for internet trends
So, there you have it; 6 businesses plus an honorable mention that you can start today in 2022 for pretty much no money at all, and as they say the average millionaire has 7 revenue sources
