3. Start an online store
This method requires a lot more work than the previous two methods since you will be starting an online business. If you are passionate about a particular product or know how to spot products which sell you can build an online store.
Popular products or services you can sell online:
- Hair bundles or wigs
- Eye lashes
- Vape products
- Seamless bras
- Waist trainers
- Pet accessories for dogs or cats
You can find suppliers using:
Alibaba: If you want to ship products to customers yourself.
Oberlo: If you want to dropship, having the supplier ship to your customers on your behalf without revealing themselves.

Running an online store can be profitable in the long run if you have the right products, in about 4–6 months you could be making a decent income.
For marketing purposes, you can use Facebook ads targeting customers interests and location. For dog accessories you can target FB users who like dog pages and live within your state for example.
You can also use Instagram or YouTube influencers to promote your products. For really popular influencers you can offer $50-$100 per promo and $20-$50 per promo for the lesser known influencers.
If you start an online store remember that you are building a brand, be sure to have social media pages for your business, a suitable name, a decent logo and decent looking store. You can also build a blog into your store and write about subjects in your niche to drive traffic towards your store.
For example if you are selling hair bundles you can create a video blog series detailing how to install the wigs you sell. Create a text blog post and a YouTube video, next embed the YouTube video into your blog post and add your blog link to your YouTube video.
This way they both feed traffic back to each other, to make things simple you can make the YouTube video first and create the blog post summarising the video with a step-by-step guide.
Starting an online store is a marathon, not a race, it will take time for your store to grow, especially with blogging which slowly builds up traffic over time.
