Looking for a small business idea? Here’s a list of 5 ideas to female entrepreneurs who are making it in their respective business niche.
Are you looking to earn some extra money on the side or to potentially start your own business?
Today I want to highlight some of the best small business ideas for women to motivate you to take that first step!
That’s not to say that men can’t pursue these ideas as well, but for today we’re honoring all the female entrepreneurs.
This list contains the businesses that I’ve seen women do exceptionally well with. As an added little bonus I’ve included some amazing women you can learn from no matter which business best suits you!
(And remember these are women just like you and me. They’re not celebrities, they’re not part of a get rich quick scheme. If they can build up amazing businesses you can, too!)
Making money through blogging is seriously like the best thing ever. It’s a wonderful feeling to get paid for your words and ideas.
To be honest, I recently just reignited my blogging spark after taking Elite Blog Academy (the best course EVER!! More on that later this month.) And since then my traffic has doubled and my blogging income is on a steady rise too.
Freelance writing is how I got my start in the online income earning world. Freelancing is the best way to make money FAST. (Here’s a complete guide on getting freelance blogging jobs.)
But as with every money making opportunity goes – your own mileage may vary!
Learn from someone who is now making good money from freelance writing and blogging services.
I mentioned earlier what a HUGE impact Ruth Soukup’s Elite Blog Academy has had on my blog in just one month.
Ruth has seriously created the best online course for blogging or writing that I have ever taken. And I’ve taken a lot of courses!
If you have something to teach get that idea out to the world. Create a membership site and start an online course. Learn as you go!
4.Affiliate Marketing/Niche Sites
Niche sites are simply websites that are focused on a particular topic and are monetized, usually through affiliate sales. (When you make an affiliate sale you earn a commission from the company you’re promoting.)
I’ve tried my hand at affiliate marketing with niche sites a couple times and miserably failed! That’s not to say it isn’t an awesome business idea. It is! And it’s also fun.
While my niche sites didn’t work out (read about that here) I still had so much fun building them and it was an amazing learning experience.
5. Website Management
Website management is a very diverse business and is actually something that I’ve ventured into rather than only freelance writing.
When it comes to website management you can do everything from sell ads, edit and schedule content, hire writers, promote on social media and more.
Since this is such a diverse area I wanted to highlight two women who are successful website managers but make their money in very different ways.
