3. MLM

Oh boy, isn’t there a lot of choice in the Multi-Level-Marketing industry!

If the concept is not familiar to you, here’s a quick recap: Multi-Level-Marketing is based on the principle that you sell their products as an exchange for a commission. You can sell basically anything through a multi-level-marketing system: from nutritional supplement to lingerie to cleaning supplies to precooked meals.

The protocols and cost structures of different companies vary a great deal, so do your due diligence to find one that suits your lifestyle and meets the criteria you have for your work.

It’s also important to choose a product line that you genuinely believe in, because it will make the selling so much easier.

4. Concierge service

How about starting a concierge service? As a concierge you will help people with their errands, like picking up their groceries or doing pharmacy runs.

Concierge service can also be virtual and only the sky’s the limit when you choose your domain. Would you like to help people with their admin tasks? Make their restaurant reservations or help them with baby planning? All these exist!

5. Third party seller

Third party sellers operate on retail platforms like Amazon and eBay – only they don’t have their own products but they sell other seller’s products. You don’t need to have any inventory or logistics in place. When a buyer purchases one of “your” products, the original seller delivers the purchase to them directly, so starting is easy.

On the other hand, it’s important to choose your partners carefully. Since you are the contact point to the customer, lost packages and quality problems will be your headache.
