Opportunities For an Online Business as a Female

marketerThe argument of the gender wage gap has been going on since the dawn of time, personally I really don’t see it, but whether it exist or not there is a deeper truth when it comes to salary, man or woman, it just isn’t enough most of the time. The opportunity of earning extra income even when doing an eight hour job is possible, because of the internet jobs opportunities all over the world is at the tip of your fingers.

One option is getting an online job, though your aim is not just the extra income, your aim is to be able to make more money than just merely getting paid by the hour, and let’s face it, you already have a boss, getting another one definitely doesn’t sound like a good thing.

An option you can take that stems from online jobs is through making a virtual business, getting clients and offering professional services, though you will need to be skilled in a particular field online such as video editing, Photoshop, writing, and so on. By doing this you allow yourself to become your own boss, maybe even expanding and hiring a team of your own one day, making a virtual company that could become bigger the more time you spend on it.

The third viable option you can take, if you are a beginner, is selling products online through social media, your own website, or websites like amazon and eBay, I have friend who’ve done this and did so well his company is now a known producer of fashion watches.

Online Service Company

We will be setting aside working a full/part-time job online, as this website is about growing a business. But when it comes to professional services, where you sell your services and not your servitude, you allow yourself to create a small business online that may be able to grow as a company where you could employ people with skills that you could sell. These can be web content, web development, and anything in the programming and/or graphics skillset. This road is a hard one though, as this will require you to dedicate your time in the beginning as if it was your full time job, but once you are able to balance everything and get your first employee, you will be able to smoothly run as time pass. And one day all that you need to do is find clients and close deals. We could go deeper about this but it would be better to talk about the deeper aspects in another time, or research it yourself.

The Online Selling Game

If you are completely new to the game, it would be best if you kept things small and start with selling on social media, targeting your local area (city/town). Though this will limit the number of customers you will be able to reach, you will be able to sell more perishable goods, such as food and fresh products, which are actually quite sellable if you know how to cook.

Selling pre-loved products is a good way to make a little money while getting rid of the clutter in your closet and garage, while not exactly a business yet, it will allow you to understand how to manage online selling and will eventually lead you to bigger things. When you finally get a hang of it, it might be time or you to try sourcing products and branding it yourself, stick with social media first and build a following, you can then move on to your own web store or amazon.

After reaching the level of having your own store, it will become necessary for you to have a team to start marketing in the larger market of the vastness of the internet. Allowing you to sell your brand more effectively, be they your own fashion brand, cosmetics, or beauty creams.

All in all

The business opportunities online are endless for females, be it starting an online service company, or a web store of any size. A woman’s ability to multitask is unrivalled, and will definitely be the key for the success of whatever business they pursue online.
