10 Small business ideas for women

Are you looking to earn some extra money on the side or to potentially start your own business? Today I want to highlight some of the best small business ideas for women to motivate you to take that first step!

That’s not to say that men can’t pursue these ideas as well, but for today we’re honoring all the female entrepreneurs.

This list contains the businesses that I’ve seen women do exceptionally well with. As an added little bonus I’ve included some amazing women you can learn from no matter which business best suits you!

(And remember these are women just like you and me. They’re not celebrities, they’re not part of a get rich quick scheme. If they can build up amazing businesses you can, too!)

Amazon FBA

Amazon FBA is a program that allows you to send the stuff you want to sell on Amazon directly to an Amazon warehouse. When one of your items is sold Amazon will pick, pack, ship, and deal with customer service for you (for a fee, of course.)

This is an amazing program for anyone who is wanting to sell online without spending countless hours dealing with shipping.

I tried Amazon FBA earlier this year and have now got my Dad’s store set up with it. If you can find products on clearance or through wholesale contracts you can make some serious cash!

Just like any other type of successful money making endeavor you have to treat this like a business! (Which I wasn’t prepared for.) Learn from some who is extremely successful instead.

Freelance Writing

Freelance writing is how I got my start in the online income earning world. Freelancing is the best way to make money FAST.

But as with every money making opportunity goes – your own mileage may vary!

Learn from someone who is now making good money from freelance writing and blogging services.

Blogging

Making money through blogging is seriously like the best thing ever. It’s a wonderful feeling to get paid for your words and ideas.

To be honest, I recently just reignited my blogging spark after taking Elite Blog Academy (the best course EVER!! More on that later this month.) And since then my traffic has doubled and my blogging income is on a steady rise too.

As of February 2016 I’m now making a full time income from this blog (at this time it hovers between $7,000 * Ksh.702887.50* – $10,000 *Ksh,1004125.00* per month.)

Software Development

Think software development is just for men? Think again!

If you have a great idea for a piece of software or even an App you can bring that idea together by hiring a developer to do the work for you. Some of the most creative ideas come from women. (And I just love the one featured below!)

Online Courses

If you have something to teach get that idea out to the world. Create a membership site and start an online course. Learn as you go!

Affiliate Marketing/Niche Sites

Niche sites are simply websites that are focused on a particular topic and are monetized, usually through affiliate sales. (When you make an affiliate sale you earn a commission from the company you’re promoting.)

I’ve tried my hand at affiliate marketing with niche sites a couple times and miserably failed! That’s not to say it isn’t an awesome business idea. It is! And it’s also fun.

Website Management

Website management is a very diverse business and is actually something that I’ve ventured into rather than only freelance writing.

When it comes to website management you can do everything from sell ads, edit and schedule content, hire writers, promote on social media and more.

Since this is such a diverse area I wanted to highlight two women who are successful website managers but make their money in very different ways.
