Writing & Editing

Writing & Editing is a broad spectrum. There are many businesses that fall in this segment, and guess what, every idea you read here is perfectly suitable for introverts.

#1. Blogging

Start your own blog!

There are bloggers making millions a year. Yes, there are, and I am not lying.

An introverted entrepreneur who wishes to share their interests with others may consider starting a blog. Bloggers should be well-versed in their topic and able to properly express themselves. There is room for improvement, but it takes time and effort.

Bloggers generally work from home; thus, their starting expenses are around $100. However, depending on the blogging niche you have selected and the monthly traffic you receive, your monthly revenue can hit several thousand to several hundred thousand dollars.

But do keep in mind that blogging isn’t an easy option. It takes time to establish yourself as a dependable source of information. You must comply with Google rules and undertake massive SEO work. You may sometimes need to delve deeper into certain technical aspects.

The good news, however, is that all those are doable tasks. You just need patience. It may take one year or upwards of a year to see any revenue accumulation.

Here is a quick guide for starting a blog from scratch.

#2. Freelance Writer

If blogging isn’t your forte, you can consider becoming a freelancer writer, provided you know your way with words. There are various platforms where you can look for freelance writing jobs that vary significantly.

Writing tasks can include anything from blog articles to fiction and non-fiction work. There can be stuff like short product descriptions to content for landing pages and web pages. You may also be asked to author white papers, tech articles, and anything and everything related to writing.

Most of these jobs are ghost writing jobs wherein you do not get the credit as the author. However, you will get paid for the job you do.

Freelance writing doesn’t require you to be around people or work in any office. You can do that from the comfort of your bedroom. There will be some communication with the clients, but that is usually limited to online communications via the platform from where you pick up the job. There is usually no voice contact, but some clients may insist on talking for some time before handing over the task.

There are various popular platforms where you can find freelance writing jobs. Some of them include UpWork, Freelancer, People Per Hour, and so on! There are people who have opened writing agencies and pick up bulk work from such platforms, making hundreds of thousands of dollars a month.

#3. Editing and Proofreading

If you are good with language and grammar, you can get into the blooming market of editing and proofreading. These services are in high demand as individuals to corporations – everyone seeks such services.

You can build a business around it without needing to interact heavily with your clients. There are established businesses around this niche. Editing and proofreading are high-paying jobs that do not require a lot of time investment.

As a matter of fact, you can build your team to get a bulk job.

As far as finding these jobs are concerned, you can find them on the same platforms where you can find freelance writing jobs. None of the platforms require you to pay money for registration and picking up work. You will, however, have the choice of upgrading your account for a fee. Upgrades will give you more features and better scope of finding work for your new business.

#4. Translation

Many businesses require translation work. While some depend on AI-based translation, others almost always go for human translation because machine-based translation is not always ideal, and often leads to errors.

Translation jobs, just like blogging or freelance writing, or editing and proofreading does not require you to contact the client frequently.

Translation jobs are high paying jobs, and you have the opportunity of leveraging the demand to build a business out of it by hiring more professionals to your team so that you can handle bulk work.

Again, the platforms like UpWork, Freelancer, People Per Hour, etc., are the places where you can find translation jobs.

#5. Write & Sell Novels

There are many people who have quit their day job and picked up writing novels and stories as their full time jobs. Well, not exactly business material, but you can always earn handsomely through this channel.

If you have the flair for writing and you happen to be a great storyteller, you can easily sell your work through various online channels like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and more.

What’s great about this format of work is that you do not have to run after publishers to have your book printed. You can sell them in digital format. You can even set up an online store to display a collection of your work so that people can buy whatever they want.

Because of the various online platforms, self-publication is something that has picked up pace and there are thousands and thousands of authors selling their work through those platforms. You can build a successful career with this.

If you think you need a screenwriting software to author your novels and stories, but you don’t have the money to buy one, you can always settle for free options like Trelby. If you have money to spare, you can select a brilliant screenwriting tool and pay for it to enjoy the most advanced features that will make your writing experience a pleasurable one.

#6. Transcription Business

The transcription industry is a booming one. There are many businesses that require transcription work. Being an introvert is a great boon because you must have great listening skills.

Of course, you must know typing, and that too, fast, and accurate typing. Great knowledge of grammar is also essential to ensure that you deliver an error-free copy. Just like any other business, the success of your transcription business will also depend on a variety of things like the market you selected, your marketing skills, your business plan, and of course, your goals.

You can start your transcription business for as little as $1,000 in investment that will cover the cost for all the tools you need for running the business successfully.

Transcriptionists can earn up to $30 an hour, but you can earn more depending on your negotiation skills with the clients. The more clients you have, the better it is. Of course, when your client base increases, you can hire other transcriptionists to deliver your projects within the specified time.

Certain transcription services are more profitable compared to others. This definitely depends on the industry you are working in. So, make sure that you are selecting the right one.

#7. Essay and Dissertation Writing

College students often look for these services. They have a lot to deal with, and they often find it easy to offload these works to various essay and dissertation writing services. There are many thriving businesses in this niche.

If you are good with research and you know how to write essays and dissertations, you can start a business right from your home. You barely need to contact your clients. They post their requirements through the website you provide for contact and make the payments using the embedded payment gateway.

Once you gain prominence, you can gradually start hiring people to deal with increased workload. Of course, starting this business will throw in some challenges and expenses your way.

For instance, you must build a website with online payment features. Students should be able to contact you and send the requirements directly through your website. You must invest in tools for checking grammar and plagiarism. Grammarly is a great tool that can help you with grammar and a wide range of English writing issues, and at the same time, the tool can also check for plagiarism.

Designs & Illustrations

Diagram, engineering drawing
Description automatically generated

Just like writing & editing, design & illustration also involves a broad spectrum of work that you can perform from the comfort of your home and build a business around it. Of course, you need to have that artistic and creative bend of mind to accomplish designing tasks.

There are many companies that thrive in this niche, and some of them are highly profitable and of course, reputed ones. Let us investigate some of the niches that you can pick up for building a business.

#8. Graphic Designing

Logo design, flyer design, business card design, brochure design, etc., all come under graphic design. Big companies shell out millions of dollars to create bespoke designs that go well with their brand’s overall design and color language.

Graphic designing takes a lot of creativity and there are specialized tools that you must know how to use.

If you have what it takes to be an outstanding graphic designer, you can have a brilliant booming business that can bring home millions. Assuming that you want to start with a proper brand name and an office, startups will usually cost $2000. You can enjoy profit margins of anywhere between 15% and 30% after covering all costs.

Also, if you don’t like speaking to clients much, you don’t have to worry about that either. You can have someone else communicate with the client while you take charge of the designs.

#9. Photo Editing

You can do away with only one skill – Photoshop (or other similar photo editing programs). You don’t need to be a photographer yourself. However, if you have both the skills, you can always open a photo editing business, which usually takes less than $5,000 to start.

Photo editing and retouching is in great demand. People want to have all kinds of photos edited such as wedding photos, tour photos, anniversary photos, birthday photos, pet photos, and so on. There is no limit.

Photos are essentially memories, which is why people do not shy away from spending big on having photos edited as per their requirements. The chances of business growth are quite modest, and you don’t even have to deal with dozens of people. At the most, you will deal with one person or two.

#10. Cartoonist

There is no point thinking that cartoonists do not have a career. Yes, it might be difficult to establish a business, but it is not impossible. There are a variety of industries that seek the services of cartoonists. For instance, you can find clients in industries like blogging, entertainment, and publishing.

While starting a cartooning business doesn’t require a lot of investment, and you can do away with around $2,000 for a startup, you can make big money ranging anywhere between 30,000 and 60,000 USD a month, depending on your client base.

If you have a lot of clients, you can increase your monthly income significantly. However, my suggestion will be to use cartooning as a secondary income source until you have an extensive list of clients. Only then should you venture into a full time business.

As a lone cartoonist you will have to interact with a few people, but when your business grows, you can hire someone to communicate with your clients.

Technology Related Businesses

Description automatically generated

#11. Web and App Developer

If you have technical knowledge of coding, you can always go ahead and start a business of web development and app development. Take for instance the market for WordPress themes. It is huge. People earn hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars just by creating themes and selling them.

There are dedicated platforms where you can sell the themes that you create. For instance, you can go to Envato and sell your products. That is just one of the many marketplaces you can find.

Alternatively, you can take the approach of others like MyThemeShop and Elegant Themes, or GeneratePress who have created their own online store and sell their products directly to customers without involving any third-party marketplace.

If you know how to develop mobile apps, you can sell your services to companies that are looking for creating new mobile apps.

These businesses usually require fewer interactions with the clients as they provide the requirements, and you work accordingly. Of course, you must keep providing updates from time to time, ensuring that you and your clients are on the same page as far as requirements are concerned.

The immense demand in the web and app development industry has helped many businesses thrive. Your business can be one of those.

#12. Domain Registration

This is another business that you can focus on. Of course, you must be tech-savvy and understand how domain registration works. You must also have great administrative skills.

The business of domain registration is going to stay for a very long time. Businesses and individuals keep opening websites and they need domain names. If you decide to get into this business, you will be greeted with cut-throat competition, because there is no shortage of domain registrars.

The success of your business will depend on the marketing strategy you use. The more successful your marketing is, the more clients you get. Interaction with your clients will be nil. At the most, you have to interact with your employees.

However, do not forget that the startup cost will be high. You need to apply for accreditation from ICANN. The application will cost you $3500, and it doesn’t necessarily mean that you will get the accreditation. ICANN may decide not to give you the status, and in that case, you will lose your money. Furthermore, you must pay $4,000 a year to ICANN to maintain your ICANN accreditation status!

If you receive the accreditation from ICANN, you can start selling domain names, but there will be chances of making losses. GoDaddy is a notable example, which despite bringing in a billion dollars in revenue still operated in a loss.

To make your business more profitable, you should consider offering related services like website hosting, email hosting, etc.

#13. Data Entry

It may sound dull and dumb, but it is a great business. Even if you are an introverted entrepreneur, you can easily start a data entry business if you have good managerial skills. It is easy to start the business at home, but you will need excellent speed of typing along with high accuracy.

You can set up an entire business with employees. The startup cost will depend on a number of things like the number of employees, computers, internet connection, and so on. If the data entry job requires using specialized programs or software, you need to invest in those, too!

Profit margins can be as high as 20 to 30%, but again, the profitability is often determined by the speed and accuracy of the data entry operator. And just like any other business, you must focus on marketing your business and getting new clients. Of course, you can use freelancing platforms and job marketplaces like UpWork, Freelancer, etc. to get new clients.

Web-Based (Services)

A picture containing graphical user interface
Description automatically generated

There are many web-based services that you can extend to people looking for them. Interestingly, it doesn’t require a lot of communication. All you need to do is communicate at the beginning to get the requirements and then deliver the work within the given time frame. Of course, clients may ask for time-to-time updates.

Here are a few options that you can look at:

#14. SEO

Search engine optimization or SEO is one high demand. With never-ending Google search algorithm updates, webmasters across the world find it hard to maintain rankings. They look for SEO services that can help their website rank.

SEO is not a simple thing, and it requires in-depth knowledge of the subject matter. It also calls for the utilization of various tools for analysis and strategy building.

There are three forms of SEO that go by the names White Hat SEO, Black Hat SEO, and Grey Hat SEO. White Hat SEO is something you must be focusing on, because that is what Google expects webmasters to do and punishes those that use Black Hat or Grey Hat SEO.

Your SEO services can include both on-page and off-page SEO. On-page SEO involves the content, interlinking, keyword research, formatting, and so on. Off-page SEO includes things like link building, social media promotions, and so on.

If you are good with these things, SEO business can become a money-making machine, capable of churning out millions, making your wallet fatter and fatter over time. You don’t have to believe my words. You can take a look into Neil Patel’s services. His company – Neil Patel Digital – charges outrageously high for something as simple as giving a roadmap for recovery from Google penalty.

Depending on the services you offer, you can charge your clients anywhere between 2,000 USD to 10,000 USD. And if you are good, you can garner hundreds and thousands of clients quickly enough to establish your business.

#15. Social Media Management

Big brands often maintain social presence on multiple platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and so on.

They maintain these accounts to increase brand awareness, and they also tend to pour in hundreds of thousands of dollars into those accounts for creating posts, running ad campaigns, creating polls and quizzes, and so much more.

What is interesting is that these companies do not tend to maintain an inhouse team for those tasks. They often outsource the task to agencies specializing in those tasks. If you understand the heartbeat of social media, and you know how to gain followers and keep them engaged, social media management can be a very lucrative business avenue for you.

Having personally worked for such an agency, I can say without an iota of doubt that it is best suited for introverts. Usually, such agencies do not maintain a large staff. At the most you can find a designer, a copywriter, a strategies, and a couple of more people just for researching, scheduling posts, running ads, and so on.

Communication with the client also remains minimal because what the client usually prefers is increased awareness and increased ROI. So, as long as you are capable of delivering the results with minimal inputs from your clients, they will be more than happy to continue using the services you provide.

#16. SEM

SEM stands for search engine marketing. It is a form of internet marketing in which the visibility of a website is increased in search engine results using paid promotions. Here is an example of SEM:

See the red highlighted boxes. They clearly state that they are ads. However, these ads are right on the top of the search result for the phrase ‘what is search engine marketing?’

These paid promotions require extensive knowledge of Google Ads (previously AdWords) and require finding keywords of high commercial value. However, whatever I said just now is a scaled down version of something much more complex.

SEM is a common thing and many businesses outsource the SEM efforts to agencies who know about Google Ads like the back of their hands. You can start an SEM agency to start a business in this highly profitable niche.

Even better, you can actually combine SEO, Social Media Management, and SEM services under one roof to provide a more robust service. The success of your business will lay in your marketing efforts and your client base.

#17. Online Tutoring

Even this is on the rise, especially during these days of pandemic. Online tutoring can range from helping college students with the subject you specialize in to ESL classes for children residing in different countries. Guess what? You have to be online on video chats and teach them.

You can literally build a business out of this model and hire people who can teach children, or they have specialization in subjects that college students want to learn.

The success of the business is dependent on factors like the style of teaching, your marketing prowess to put your business in front of those looking for such services.

If you think this is not a real thing, you can always look at websites like TUTOR.COM, TUTORME.COM, and so on. Being an introvert, you may not like teaching in crowded classrooms. This makes online tutoring a perfect choice because you will be into 1:1 interaction with the student.

Web-Based (Selling Products)

Description automatically generated

You must have noticed that e-Commerce is on the rise. More and more people prefer purchasing their necessities and luxuries right from the comfort of their homes. Only recently I purchased a TV from Amazon, but interestingly, had it been a couple of years back, I would have walked into a brick-and-mortar store to make the purchase.

I am just one of the millions who prefer shopping online because that not only saves time, but also helps to save big on deals. Being an introvert, you can start your own e-Commerce business and earn big. Here are some ideas that you can work with:

#18. Handmade Gifts and Jewelry

If you are good with crafts and you know how to make beautiful jewelry at home, you can start your own eCommerce shop. Yes, you must invest a lot to start with, and you will have to perform a lot of SEO to gain prominence, but it is not impossible.

You may have to interact with some people, but those interactions will be short and to-the-point. For instance, you may have to talk to your suppliers from time to time. If you don’t know anything about building an e-Commerce site, you may have to hire a developer or shell out a monthly price to use platforms like Shopify to build your online shop with a simple drag-and-drop interface.

You will also need to communicate and strike a deal with some order fulfilment service, as well.

Running an e-Commerce store will require some knowledge of inventory management, and you need to know methods for luring customers with deals and coupons. Setting up the business will require a lot of effort, but if you can market it well enough, you can make big money.

#19. Fancy Casual Dresses

Unique printed t-shirts, shorts, hoodies, and so on… they are all the rage! People will never stop wearing clothes, and youngsters will always have an inclination towards trendy and funky clothing. You can leverage that and start selling unique printed clothing including t-shirts.

Of course, there will be work with inventory management, supply chain management, deals and coupons, Black Friday & Christmas sales, and so on. However, if you can do it the right way, you can always take your business to new heights.

For clothing, you do not need to manufacture them by yourself. You can just contact businesses that can sell your stock at a wholesale rate, and then you can find companies who will undertake the printing task to deliver the final product to your warehouse.

I can think of one such booming business in India which goes by the name Bewakoof. The reason why I cited this business name is the unique model they chose. They target the youngsters and given the fact that over 50% of Indian population is below the age of 25, and over 65% of population is below the age of 35, that company has a humongous market, and they are leveraging it quite nicely.

You can do something similar, and since the main work comes primarily during the business setup, the whole business model makes sense for introverted entrepreneurs.

#20. Printing Services

You can start a brilliant e-Commerce store offering printing services for business cards, greeting cards, flyers, and so on. There are many businesses thriving in this industry. Communication with the clients remains minimal because most of the orders are placed online using predefined settings.

You can increase the profitability of the business by offering a SaaS platform where people can literally design whatever they need and ask for print. Of course, building a SaaS platform will require technical knowledge, or you can just outsource it to people who can do that for you.

Printing services will also require inventory management, order fulfillment, supply chain management, and so on.

#21. Online Courses

If you are a teacher, or you happen to be particularly good in any subject, you can start selling online courses. Of course, you will need a platform for selling courses. These are specialized platforms known as Learning Management Systems.

You must invest money in creating the platform and then invest time in building the courses, and finally, marketing them to gain visibility.

The problem with this type of business is that you will have a very narrow user base unless you are selling courses on subjects that attract people from across the world (for example, you can build a course on SEO or investing in stock market, and so on).

What is interesting here is that you don’t have to worry about inventory management or supply chain management. You don’t even have to worry about order fulfillment services simply because the products will be digital in nature, and people can just download them.

Pets Related Businesses

A picture containing floor, dog
Description automatically generated

Did you know that the pet industry is growing by a whopping $1.5 billion a year? What does that tell you? Yes, there are opportunities everywhere and you can cash in on those opportunities. Being an introvert, you can of course look for businesses in the industry where you will need minimal interaction.

Here are a few ideas:

#22. Pet Photography

Pet parents are like sugar daddies, but only for their pets. I can tell that from personal experience. These people do not hesitate to spend big on their furry babies. They even go for professional photography of their beloved pets.

If you are good with your camera skills, you can start a business of pet photography and extend your services to your local market. Of course, this business has limited growth potential because going international is not an option.

However, if you are living in an area where the majority of the residents have pets, you can build a thriving pet photography business with recurring clients. You can market your business using the power of the internet and try to capture more and more clients using Google’s local search feature.

Pet photography requires minimal interaction with humans as usually one person comes to the studio with the pet. Pet photography requires a lot of patience because what you will be dealing with is a pet and not a human. You can charge a lot depending on the work and time required for it.

#23. Dog Walking

Again, this is limited to local markets. You really cannot go to another state or country to walk dogs. That will be outrageous!

However, in your local market, dog walking can become a thriving business. Many working people take in pets, but they fail to invest time in taking them out for a walk. You can always approach them and offer to walk their pets.

Yes, you have to initially establish contact and strike a pricing deal. Once you have done that, you just need to take their pets for a walk and bring them back home. The growth potential is definitely limited, because handling too many clients in a day is also not a feasible option.

However, if your clients are happy with your work, you can expand your business and hire people. Multiple employees in your company can handle way more clients than you alone can.

#24. Homemade Pet Food

If you don’t know, that is a growing trend. Pet parents are looking for businesses that can provide homemade foods for the furry babies. If you are good in the kitchen and you have knowledge about pet food, you can start a very profitable business right from your home.

No doubt, you will have to take care of the supply line for raw materials and find out ways for mass production. You also need to take care of packaging and storage, getting legal approval for the pet food you want to market.

The success of your business will depend a lot on your marketing efforts. There is no denying that there will be some in-person communication involved during the business setup, but once everything is in order, you will barely need interaction. Your staff can carry out all that needs to be done.

#25. Pet Toys and Pet Products

If you are good with innovation, you can start making pet toys and pet products like beds, tents, etc., right at your home. Once you have come up with a few products, you can start marketing them to individual pet parents in your area. Alternatively, you can register a business and start selling them on Amazon or set up your own shop (online or offline or both).

Making pet toys and pet products can be complex or simple depending on what you are trying to make. This will determine the total cost of initial setup. You can start it right from your basement or garage or a similar place.

Virtual Tasks – Remote Worker

A person using a computer
Description automatically generated with medium confidence

In the wake of the pandemic (COVID – 19), remote work has gained popularity. Businesses in general (with or without pandemic) often end up virtual or remote workers for smaller tasks. The rationale behind it is simple. They save money. Businesses do not need to provide an office setup to remote workers. This reduces their operational expenses.

As an introvert, you can grab this opportunity to build a business around it. Here are a couple of remote jobs that you can leverage to start a business:

#26. Remote or Virtual Assistant

Remote or virtual assistants are often tasked with jobs like managing email accounts, scheduling meetings, making calls, making travel arrangements, and so on. It is more like a personal assistant.

You can directly approach companies and check whether they need remote or virtual assistants or not. You can even look for such opportunities online. Once you find opportunities, you can apply for the same.

What is interesting is that there is no limit to the number of clients you work for. So, you can find more clients if you want to start a business. All your employees can become virtual assistants and cater only to the clients they are assigned by you.

Of course, there will be a lot of management tasks involved, but that doesn’t require too much interaction, making it a suitable business choice for introverts.

#27. Remote Bookkeeping

If you are really good with finances, you can extend your services as a virtual or remote bookkeeper for businesses that are looking for means to cut down their operational expenses.

This works pretty much the same way as the tasks of a virtual or remote assistant. The only difference is that you engage in bookkeeping.

If you can garner a lot of clients, you can start a blooming business by hiring people. They all can work remotely from their homes or use the office space you provide.

Other Business Ideas for Introverts

So far, I grouped the business ideas, but there are many more that cannot be grouped into a single header. Let us go through those ideas quickly.

#28. Woodworking

A picture containing table, indoor
Description automatically generated

If you happen to be a woodworking hobbyist, you can convert it into a full-time business and start earning money out of it. You can keep your business small and decide to work from your garage, workshop, or basement. You can even expand it to become a large business.

Of course, you need a good business sense and good skills to stay in the market. There will be some significant investment to start with. At the very least you should be looking at an investment of $10,000 provided that you already have most of the equipment you need for the business.

Your marketing and woodworking skills will determine how much you can make from the business. Successful businesses can easily make a six-figure income.

#29. Beekeeping

This usually starts as a hobby, but if you have enough land to support numerous colonies, you can quickly convert it into a great business. Honey is the primary product you can sell, but at the same time, you can also venture into the beeswax market.

Since beekeeping is quite a solitary hobby, it can be a great business for introverts who do not like much social interaction. You can start your business with little investment, but if you can grab a large market, you can earn upwards of $90,000 a year. Of course, your income will depend on the season and the number of colonies your land can support.

#30. Greenhouse

A picture containing greenhouse, indoor
Description automatically generated

Be honest! You never thought of this, right? It is a great business, but the only problem is that it calls for a large initial investment. You will need land and you must have a proper setup, all of which can cost several hundred thousand dollars.

Interestingly though, if you are good with marketing and you can capture proper markets, it won’t be difficult to bring home a six-figure income. The most important thing you will need is knowledge. You must know how to grow different plants and flowers. You must know how delicate things can get and how to handle your plants.

With a greenhouse business you can sell seeds, fruits, flowers, plants, and vegetables to both your local markets and markets in other areas. Marketing will be the key to your business success. So, make sure that you have marketing skills, or you have someone in your staff to do that for you.

#31. General Gardener

General gardeners, as the name says, do not deal with specialized gardening jobs. They will mostly plant a few flowering trees, or rake leaves, or take care of the lawns for their customers. Of course, you have a choice of doing this alone, but you can always decide to make it a business and start a gardening and landscaping business.

It is needless to say that you must have gardening knowledge. You should know how to maintain a lawn, identify weeds and plants, and so on. If you are going out there as a lone wolf, you can earn up to 700 USD a week. However, if you decide to convert it into a proper business and branch out beyond your local area, you can always bring in higher profits.

#32. Flipping

Retail arbitrage is a real thing.

Flipping is as simple as visiting garage sales, clearance racks, and ongoing sales at brick-and-mortar shops to buy things at a lower price and then selling them online for a higher price.

The only thing you need to take care of is that you must sell something that people really need. You can flip just about anything from old cars, furniture, antique books, and more. Certain things you buy for a low price may require some fixing, but you can have them professionally repaired for a small fee, and then sell the improved version for a higher price.

There are people who make hundreds of thousands of dollars a month just by flipping. Yes, they are professional flippers. To get into this business, you don’t need to speak much. Just go out, find items, buy them, and finally come and sell them online.

#33. Etsy Store

There are businesses blooming on the Etsy platform. It is a marketplace where you can set up your store and start selling. You need to make sure that you are selling handmade crafts like hand-woven baskets, handmade jewelry, handmade quilt, and so on!

You can even sell vintage and antique items on Etsy. Remember that Etsy is a place where the products sold are not mass-produced. In short, they should be handmade, or they should be in very short supply.

Etsy will take care of all the payment processing. You can just focus on your handmade products and sell them to people who want your products.

#34. House Cleaning

A picture containing person, wall, indoor, bathroom
Description automatically generated

House cleaning is a painful thing. I know because I am still recovering from painful shoulders and an aching back. That is what happens when people don’t clean their houses for months together.

The good thing is that there are thousands of people who literally do not like doing this by themselves, or they just don’t have the time to do these things. You can extend your services and rack up some clients.

People seeking house cleaning services usually do not prefer talking a lot. They just engage in a small introductory talk describing the job they need to get done and negotiate a price. Once that part is settled, they will just stay out of the way until you finish the task to their satisfaction.
