Online business ideas for expats who are serious about escaping the rat race and becoming financially independent.
Are you tired of working in a mundane teaching job in order to keep enjoying the expat lifestyle? Stressed and taken advantage of, undervalued and underpaid? Would you like to escape the rat race and create an online business that is aligned with your interests or passions that gives you more time and money to enjoy the beautiful place where you live? Then read on, as we look at some surprisingly do-able ways of achieving just that.
Nowadays more and more people are starting an online business as a “side hustle” or whilst still working a day job. And whilst this WILL take considerable time and effort in the beginning, once you get your business up and running you have a very real chance of leaving your “day job” behind, working less hours and earning more money than you currently do working full-time.
For me, as a teacher working in private schools in Spain, the workload increased every year but the pay never really followed suit (it went up less than 2% in 17 years). Sadly it always felt like a business first and a school second and it wasn´t nearly as fulfilling as I´d hoped when I entered the profession. So when I started my online business I knew that it had to be centred round something that I was passionate about that was really going to help others.
So what online businesses can you start part-time?
Well if you’re already working full-time it needs to be something that you can work on little by little that you can manage around your work and other commitments. Something that is easy to fulfil on, that won´t take up lots of your time on customer service, support or transactions.
Selling products with E-commerce
Selling physical products that you buy in bulk at a fraction of the cost and then sell online is simple because you don´t need to create a product. You simply set up the sales system where you concentrate on the marketing and advertising campaigns that drive traffic to the likes of Amazon or ebay. This is something that you can do in a couple of hours a day around your existing job to begin with and then scale up as you become more established. Amazon FBA will even take care of payments from customers, packaging, distribution and customer service for you.
Affiliate marketing is probably the easiest online business to start because you earn commissions by selling other company’s products without having to worry about any fulfilment or delivery. The great thing here is that once you set up your advertising it’s possible to sell products 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. So you can be making money passively whilst you’re at work or even whilst you’re in bed asleep! Also there is no limit to the number and variety of products that you can sell, giving you the opportunity to align your business with something you love or feel passionate about. If you still want to make a difference as an educator, you might even think about creating your own online educational products and selling those. Once you get started you´ll see that the possibilities are endless.
How long will it take to start making money?
Ah yes, the million dollar question. Of course this will depend on lots of things, for instance the product you choose to sell or promote and whether that is right for the current market. Also how much time can you dedicate to your new business venture? And are you committed to learning the digital skills that you will need to succeed?
Whatever you decide to sell, the most difficult part of the process will be getting those early sales. But once you achieve your first 10 sales you will have the confidence and the knowhow to repeat the process and grow your business. You will come to understand the number of sales you need to make each week and month in order to have a reliable business that is capable of eventually replacing your full-time income.
