So you want to start a business, you want to take control of your schedule, take control of your whole life, really?
But you don’t have a great computer. In fact, maybe you don’t have a computer at all.
Maybe all you’ve got is a smartphone. Well, I’ve got some good news for you because there are actually a lot of different kinds of businesses that you can start with, just your phone.
In today’s video, I’m going to be sharing with you seven different smartphone business ideas.
Now, before we get into them, I just want to say that most of these businesses would be easier to run from a computer. I fully acknowledge that.
However, you can do them with just your phone. And if you don’t have a computer right now, then you just need to work with what you have.
I mean, that’s why I’m here making this video in my car today. My office is being painted.
I wanted to share this with you. So I’m just making it happen. I’m just working with what I have.
And that’s what I encourage you to do as well. If all you have is a phone, then use a phone to start a business so that you can make more money so that you can buy a computer and have more options down the road. OK.
With that being said, let’s get into these seven different business ideas that you can start with your smartphone.
The first business that you could start with, just your smartphone, is a resale business.
You can purchase items off of Craigslist or a garage sales or at thrift stores, and then you can sell them online for a much higher prices.
There are many different Web sites that allow you to list items and sell them. A lot of these Web sites exist for clothing online.
And of course, there’s also eBay. OK. Now, before we get into the second idea, I just want to let you know if any of these ideas don’t really appeal to you.
Don’t worry, because there’s a lot of variety in these ideas where you’ll probably find one that sounds really interesting to you. OK.
So let’s talk about idea number two. You can be a social media manager.
Brands these days need people to manage their social media, to post their content on different platforms and to interact with their followers to manage the messages that are coming in on all of these platforms.
And this is something that you can do with your phone pretty easily, because these days most people are consuming social media on their phones.
And so the apps have been designed to be very mobile friendly.
Now, in order to become a social media manager, obviously you’ll need to connect with brands who are promoting themselves in social media.
Fortunately, there is no shortage of such brands. Thousands and thousands, millions, really, of these brands who need the help of a social media manager.
So you need to work on connecting directly with those brands and showing them how you could help them.
Business idea. Number three is customer service or customer support. You have a phone. You can communicate with customers.
Brands need help communicating with their customers, even beyond social media.
They need people to actually answer the phone and talk to their customers. And I know this might sound crazy, but you can use your phone as a phone and talk to people on it.
And that is a great service that you can provide. Some companies want to offer their customers the option to text their company as well. That’s something you can also do with your phone.
So you could start a small customer service agency with just your phone idea. Number four is a drop shipping business.
Now, if you don’t know a drop, shipping is just Google it. There are a lot of people who will be very happy to explain everything about it to you.
But basically, you run a business that sells a product, but you don’t actually keep the product in a warehouse.
You’re having a shipped directly from the company that manufactures it to your customers. This is something that you can definitely do with your phone.
You can set up a store with a Web site like Shopify. You can promote it on social media, with Facebook ads, with Google ads.
What have you. And you can even use a software like overload to make the process even easier. There’s no reason why you can’t do this with your phone again.
Yes, it is easier to do on your computer, but you can do it on your phone.
Another business that you can start on your phone isn’t nearly as business see as a lot of these businesses, but it technically is business and it certainly can make you money.
And that is a channel here on YouTube.One of them up there in the corner for you to check out.
But you can make money with a YouTube channel, with the ads on the channel. You can have sponsors.
You can do affiliate marketing on your channel. There’s loads of different ways that you can make money on YouTube. And it’s something that you can easily do with your phone.
You can upload them to YouTube from your phone. You can communicate with sponsors via your phone.
You can set up your Google ads account with your phone. You can do absolutely everything to start and grow a successful YouTube channel with just your phone business idea.
Number six is to start a consulting business. Now, this actually covers.
A whole lot of different types of businesses. But basically, if you run a consulting business, then people are paying you for your expertise, for your guidance.
So if you have something that you’re really good at, maybe something that you do professionally, something you went to school for or do something that you have a lot of experience with and knowledge about.
Then there is very likely to be a lot of people out there who would like to pay you for your help.
This is something, again, you can do with your phone. You can use a social media or advertising to attract clients.
And then you can work with these clients either just on the phone, of course,or you could write emails back and forth to them, although that would be a little bit more difficult with your phone.
And most people who are hiring a consultant want to actually talk to the person you even could use your phone and simply to connect with your clients.
And then you could meet with them in real life, if that would be a better fit for the type of consulting that you’re doing. Last but not least, you could start a course business or an education company with your phone.
Now, I know that it might sound surprising that you could start an education company with your phone, but lots of people are doing it these days.
Actually, you can create online courses using your phone courses that teach people things without you having to one on one to talk to each individual customer.
There’s a public marketplace for courses or a platform like teachable that allows you to actually be completely in control of your course and sell it directly to your customers.
I’ve made a couple of videos in the past about how I make money with online courses, so I will link one of those and Downbelow so that you can find it. how to be successful selling online courses.
Then just leaping come down below and let me know because I’ve been thinking about making more videos on that topic lately. OK.
Well, there you have it. Seven ideas for businesses that you can start with your smartphone. Now, before we go, wanted to share a couple of things with you.
One is, would you guys be interested in seeing kind of a part two to this video that talks about how to start each of these businesses with your smartphone? Would that be interesting?
And then the second thing is an announcement that I’m a little bit hesitant to make because I’m not 100 percent certain that this is happening, but I’m just going to throw it out there partly to get your guys feedback.
I’ve been thinking about doing a series on my channel that is more like a TV series almost, that has episodes and any each episode of the series.
I start a business with my smartphone. Would that be interesting to you? Would you want to watch something like that?
I’m thinking like once a week, do an episode. And I can try different kinds of businesses.
I don’t know. It’s an idea. I’m thinking about doing it. So just let me know if that’s something you would want to see.
Okay. Well, thanks so much for joining me. Thanks for putting up with my strange circumstances today.
I imagine, if anything, the audio probably sounds better because it’s not actually in gear. And I know that echoey audio is annoying and it’s something that I always struggle with.
So thanks for being with me. Hope you enjoyed the video. Hope you got something out of it.
I’m curious to know if you’re thinking about starting a business with your smartphone.
And if so, tell me about it, because I think that’s pretty cool. Then make sure you do that before you go. I promise.
I’m not normally sitting in my car, success, marketing, personal development.
