Would you believe that all you need for you to do business online is a creative mind, a simple yet robust business model, a laptop and internet?
Sounds crazy, doesn’t it?
Yet, this is exactly what I started with and tried in 2016.
In March that year, I started a small experiment called Conper, which stands for Content Developer.
I decided to start this after feeling a bit bored at home, as I had just relinquished my holdings in a company to investors from Japan.
The concept was simple – do some tests on social media to see the impact of good content in a campaign.
So I made some simple but creative graphic designs for banner and logo images, and started with that. In less than a week, the results surprised me – from an experiment borne out of curiosity, I now had a viable business that could be built up without capital!
So if I can do it, so can you – all you need to do is do what I did, and you can imitate the concept to suit your business and marketing ideas:
With this example, you can see how easy it is to start up an online business – brainstorm with your friends, or seek a mentor to discuss ideas before making your passion your business – and then make it happen online.
Who knows, you can also start a business without big capital, and it can turn out to be a great business someday!
