80 ideas for making money online with a budget under Rs 5,000
i can give you hundreds of ideas right away if you want to start a side business to generate a passive online income. However, you have to work hard to implement the money-generating business.
Idea #71 A support group for people who failed
Failure is not a failure until you accept it. I learned this lesson early in my life and that’s why I have survived the failure of my startups. You can build a support group for people who fail at exams.
Fashion and beauty
You know women spend a lot of money on fashion and beauty products. There is no doubt that they become fashion experts naturally as they use the products.
If you love fashion, then why not start an online business?
See how many people are searching for simple things like “beauty tips for glowing skin” — 1,900 searches every month and 2,900 searches if you can write in Hindi.
Similarly, you can find tons of keywords that people keep on searching online related to fashion. Some ideas for you to move forward:
- Indo-western dress for girls
- how to wear palazzo pants with kurta
- how to wear shawl
Top fashion bloggers Urmi Daga and Hemal Ved started WhatWearHow. These two friends started their blog in 2010 and created excellent content for their viewers. Brands have gone on to create videos with them in order to be promoted through their channel.
Idea #72 Beauty tips
Pick up some keywords as I have shown in the snapshot and start writing about beauty tips. Start Facebook and Instagram pages. You can find a business model for your business once you have a decent audience.
Idea #73 Skincare tips
Skincare is one of the most important topics for girls. You can easily find keywords to write your initial 10 articles.
Idea #74 Fashion product reviews
Once you are in the fashion industry, you can pick products and start writing your reviews.
Idea #75 Ideas for indo-western dresses
Do some basic research into what people are looking to wear at parties. If I can find ideas within a few minutes of research, you can find a lot of ideas if you spend a few hours.
Idea #76 Shopping places for fashion products
If you are a fashion expert, people would like you to tell them where they can buy trending products from. Depending on your audience, you can suggest budget shopping or premium shopping locations.
I am not a fashion expert, but I can suggest some tips based on my research. You can come up with a better idea if you are passionate about fashion.
Blogging tips for success in fashion and beauty
- Know your audience and dress accordingly
- Give fashion and styling tips
- Fashion is all about glamour, so make sure your images are absolutely fantastic
- Dull images are a complete put-off
- Maintain a healthy Instagram channel/account
- Give honest reviews about products, sizes, and styling
If you have a good number of followers on Instagram, companies will give you free clothes and money just to tag your handle on their post. The money would depend directly on your Instagram following.
Childcare and parenting
I was reluctant to add this topic.
Unlike other topics, childcare and parenting must be handled with utmost responsibility and love. You cannot create content for the sake of making it viral. Remember, one wrong piece of advice can have a negative impact on the health of the mother or the baby.
If you are a parent and you wish to share your parenting advice with others, you can start something on Facebook.
Most mothers can find an opportunity to work on Facebook.
Neha started her Facebook page Being Happy Mom in July 2016 and grew to 1,00,000 likes in January 2017 without any paid marketing.
Being Happy Mom is a blog on parenting and childcare. Although it started with zero traffic last year, it now has more than 20,000 mothers reading articles on it every month.
All the work and growth is organic. The page is highly engaged. On an average, her posts receive 500 shares. I get inspired to see that level of dedication in work.
If you genuinely want to help the parenting community, then I have a couple of ideas for you.
Idea #77 Care during pregnancy
Pregnant women need a lot of care during pregnancy. There could be some complicated cases where special care is required (including food, exercise, and other daily activities). Thousands of women are looking out for help in the pre-pregnancy and post-pregnancy stages.
Idea #78 Care of the newborn baby
A mother forgets about herself once the baby is in her hands. Her entire focus shifts to the newborn baby. There is an equal opportunity to do great work by helping mothers in the critical stage. Start with one segment of parenting where you have the most interest, make some business, and expand the scope of your business.
Idea #79 Home remedies for children
I loved this idea because I am a believer of using home remedies for common diseases. We don’t use or recommend chemical-based treatment unless it becomes the only option. We even observed that our immune system became stronger since we stopped the unnecessary use of medicines.
Caution: Conduct in-depth research before writing any home remedy. Try it with your own baby before recommending to others.
Idea #80 Breastfeeding help
We (including Neha) have seen some Facebook groups where mothers discuss issues related to breastfeeding only. I loved the idea of staying in a niche within an industry. If you (as a mother) experienced issues with breastfeeding, you can come up with a support group for the other mothers.
