12 entrepreneurial project ideas (examples)
And well, if your entrepreneurial vein is still excited when you read these words, here we leave you 12 ideas of projects that you can undertake from the Internet. Maybe some of these ideas will check with your own purpose.
1. Package and sell knowledge
Now more than ever, online education has had an accelerated growth and demand among the public around the world due to the changes caused by the 2020 pandemic. This represents a great opportunity to start a knowledge-focused project.
We are not only talking about selling courses of something you master but creating a site where you can sell other people's knowledge, for example creating categories and packages of one or two courses either live or pre-recorded that you do not necessarily teach. In this model you can focus on specific communities of knowledge consumers and look for the people who can provide it.
According to the Internet Association's 2021 online education study, online and blended learning modalities are preferred by the 25-39 age group.
That is, for people of working age and economically active only in Mexico, taking into account that with the internet you can open your offer to other countries in Latin America Do you see any opportunity there?💸
2. Create an e-commerce agency
More and more people want to add their business to the digital world but they don't always know how to do it. How about creating a project where you can manage for them (or with them) their online business. We know that you don't need to be an expert programmer because there are options like Tiendanube that allow you to create online stores easily.
The advantage is that you could choose a specific niche of customers and with some extra hands create a project that supports more people.
3. Sell accounting and financial services
Think of how many entrepreneurs need help with their accounting. If you are an accountant, financier or know a community of accountants who can provide services for new entrepreneurs, sell them!
You can offer packages ranging from bookkeeping and reporting to creating and analyzing business financial statements. Depending on the maturity stage of the business, you can create different niche markets to sell these types of services.
4. Launch a photo sales project.
If you are an Instagram star and your photos are the kind that get hundreds or thousands of likes, don't wait too long, many sites and web magazines are looking for people who can help them feed their social networks and sites with unpublished content.
You'd be surprised how many online, travel, social and lifestyle magazines don't have enough material to post on their social networks. Start monetizing your profile by reaching out to magazine web editors and show them your personal book.
5. Create a community of translators
Are you good at languages and have translation certificates but don't like to teach? Surprise! There are many people who feel the same way you do and there are many others who need your services. Why not find that community of translators and target them to a specific market?
6. Support local businesses to sell online
Another good opportunity on the Internet is to create your online store with local products that you don't necessarily produce yourself. For example, you can have a specific online store for the southern area of your city where you offer natural products from local businesses in certain neighborhoods, you are in charge of positioning, attracting and selling online and they produce.
This is similar to dropshipping but on a local scale, of course you can launch to make it bigger, in this post you will find everything you need to know to generate this type of business in Mexico.
📌Tip: You could start with coffee shops and make deliveries according to the customer's location.
7. Create your university book summaries project.
This is one of the entrepreneurial projects I always longed for someone to do for me in college. If you search YouTube and even Spotify you'll probably find shows and channels dedicated to talking about bestselling book summaries, business books or novels but can anyone think of college students?
How about creating an internet project where you summarize and explain college books by classic authors in audio or video?
📌Tip: Remember that your audience is students. The subscription could be decent out of pure solidarity, the volume will pay back.
8. Launch a local delivery project.
It's not about competing with the most popular delivery apps... or yes, that depends on how much effort and resources you dedicate, but as an entrepreneurial project, starting by making deliveries within your neighborhood or other neighborhoods where it may not be very common to use delivery apps, can be a profitable venture.
Example: There are very large subdivisions in different cities in the country where there are stores of different things, however there are people who are not willing to go down for some nails to the entrance of the subdivision because they live on the 4th floor. That is where your project comes in.
9. Support other entrepreneurs to take advantage of the digital world.
If you are an expert in digital marketing, SEO, content, UX or any other digital discipline, you can not only aspire to create a great consulting agency, you can create small tutorials on how to approach their business to the online world. We are full of content that tells us what to do, but few people teach us how. That is a great opportunity to start an entrepreneurial project and bring more people into the online business world.
💡Example: You could start in groups of entrepreneurs offering brief consultations and then sell pre-recorded tutorials on how to brand their networks.
10. Offer research services
As we have seen in this and other articles, the digital world is extremely extensive and vast for creating business possibilities. Now let's think about what those businesses are missing: data! You can start a project where you dedicate yourself to generate studies, surveys and behavioral reports, needs and statistical data for different sectors. Yes, everything from the Internet, even surveys.
11. Sell written digital content
This project goes beyond writing in a blog or entering a freelance platform to write articles. It is about creating content according to a specific niche that helps the attraction strategy of various entrepreneurs or businesses. Articles, e-books, guides, infographics, a whole package of content so that they can be positioned in search engines.
📌Tip: Read our article on SEO and find out why this point is important.
12. Create communities around a specific topic
Everyone has a hobby and the project of creating communities remains a successful venture. This project is about aggregating relevant content that your community finds valuable around a specific topic that you can then monetize with brands and sponsorships that are interested in your audience.
It seems obvious and somewhat competitive, however the trend of internet penetration in Mexico continues to increase and every day more people enter the digital world. Do you think the market is small?
These are just some examples of entrepreneurial projects that you can do online and this time of the year is a good time to start your plans and achieve the successful business you want in 2022.
Another important point will always be that your project is linked to your personal purpose, this will greatly help to keep afloat any business and make it successful.
