The power of online services

July 6, 2021

Providing services is not passive, it can certainly be lucrative self-employment. With a service-based small business idea, "time" is your inventory and your biggest investment. Although you have a limited amount of time in the day, if you have the necessary skills, you can start and run this new business very quickly.

Writers, designers, developers, photographers, house cleaners, fitness instructors. You can start a variety of businesses depending on your skills.

Offering a service is also one of the best ways to start a business. This is because it can be developed in conjunction with other digital businesses, 'productizing' the service into a physical or digital product and creating a greater income stream.

For example, a photographer can sell photos online through their Instagram account while offering their services for local events. Ad writers can sell ad writing templates for high-converting sales copy. Combining your service-based business with a physical product can provide you with another source of income that is not directly related to your time.

You can use Shopify's BookThatApp or Acerill Appointment Booking to make it easy for consumers to schedule classes or consultations, or to buy admission to your classes through the shop.

You can also offer your services through free marketplaces such as Upwork to increase your exposure and get discovered by more employers who need your skills.
