Whether you’re a student, full-time employee, truck driver you can start a successful online business.

You are confused about what to start! Or wondering which is the best business to start online.

Am I right?

In this article, I’ll help you to choose the perfect online business to start right now.

1. Dropshipping

Do you know you can sell any physical products online without having any inventory?

Yes, this business model is called dropshipping. This is the first business model I build.

I created an online store to get products listed from Aliexpress. Drove traffic using Facebook Ads, after a customer order on my website. I’ll ship the product from Aliexpress.

This is risk less business. You don’t need any inventory and you can order after the customer paid to you.

Finally dropshipping is the perfect online business idea for beginners.


  •  Low start-up cost
  • Scalable
  • Less Risk


  •  Low-profit margins
  • Complicated shipping
  • Inventory issues

2. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing is a type of business similar to dropshipping but you don’t have to handle customer support.

Basically, you promote other products if a customer convert using your unique affiliate link then you made some commission.

Interesting right?

Affiliate marketing is a huge industry this is the best online business to start if you’re a beginner.

There is an advantage in Affiliate marketing compare to dropshipping.

You can start affiliate marketing for free. No investment needed although if you want to start blogging as a traffic source you need to spend 3-5 dollars a month.

That’s not much. Right?

You can make passive income slowly and gradually without putting much effort consistently.


  • Low to No Investment needed
  • Somany free traffic sources
  • Flexibility
  • No customer support needed
  • Beginner-friendly
  • Consistent cash flow


  • At the starting point, you need to put effort upfront (depends on traffic method)

3. Drop-servicing

Drop servicing is one of the best online businesses to start in 2020.

It is so similar to drop shipping but instead of physical products, you sell services online.

Drop servicing will be trending in upcoming years.

Won’t believe it?

Check results on Google Trends.

Totally risk-less business but Facebook ads are not effective in this business. You can advertise on Google.

There are many freelance websites to fulfill the order like Fiverr, Upwork, Freelancer, etc.


  • Low start-up cost
  • Beginner-friendly
  • Flexibility
  • Scalable
  • Less risk


  • Customer service
  • Problems with some suppliers

4. Software Development

Everyone wants to build a Facebook, Snapchat. I know its tempting if you’re a software developer.

Software is the process of writing and maintaining source code. I personally don’t recommend for a beginner.

It is so time-consuming and high start-up cost.

You can do everything alone, you required a team and marketing cost to launch your software successfully.


  • High profits
  • Somany freelancer jobs


  • High start-up cost
  • Team required
  • Too much competition
  • Stress

5. Online Courses

Do you know one of my friend selling a course that will teach “How to do a handstand”?

Yes really!

In fact, he is doing well by selling his course online.

You can sell your courses on many platforms like Udemy including your own website.

If you are an expert in anything you can create an online course.

Probably you’re thinking “No, I am not expert in any field”.

Oh really?

Maybe you don’t know try to find something in your hobbies. Learn and master something that people are interested in. Then create an online course.


  • Low startup cost
  • High profits
  • Passive Income


  • Takes lots of work upfront
  • Ultimate research on the product


If I go like this there is a massive list of online businesses to start. These are the top business to start as a beginner.

How do I pick one?

Consider your passion, interests, and risks involved in that business.

My #1 go-to online business as a complete beginner with little or no money to invest is Affiliate Marketing.

If you have money more at least $1000 to invest you can choose drop shipping or dropservicing.

If you are confident in your product or service and have a massive capital to invest then you can develop software.

If you want to start a business you need patience, if you’re looking for a quick buck this is not for you.

Start these businesses as a side hustle. Invest 2-3 hours a day slowly grow it and work full time at your comfort.

You might fail a few times, consider it as a learning curve try again test different things dig deeper as you grow. You’ll build a successful online business one day.

Happy hustling.
