April 11, 2016

Below are some ideas intended to get your juices flowing. To start there are 50+ ideas. All are businesses you can get up and running quickly with very little investment in capital.

For all ideas my overall advice is to come up with a niche. If your site relies on online only sales the more specific your niche can be.

Here is an example e-commerce store that starts as a generic concept (golf e-commerce products) and ends with something highly specific and more likely to succeed. The catch is you can’t get so specific that the market gets too small. But if you are too broad (golf e-commerce store) you will be unable to compete unless you have a huge marketing budget.
