Building a blog / website can be one of the most promising long-term business models. The increasing number of internet and smartphone users is an indicator that the future of blog / website media will be more and more traffic, of course in accordance with the niche blog / website that was built. This is what we can make a business opportunity with small capital.

Take a look at the website pages whose links are often scattered on Facebook and Google (for example Merdeka.com, Kompas.com, Alodokter.com, Viralnova.com, Cerpen.co.id, etc.) on the website page that we can see Google Adsense ads. Most blogs and website portals monetize their websites with PPC (pay per click) programs, especially Google Adsense.

This PPC program is perfect for those who have a website or blog with high visitor traffic. One of the ad network business models is by following PPC (pay per click) programs such as Google Adsense, Bidvertiser, Kliksaya, Kumpulbloger, and others. In addition to PPC advertising, another advertising business model is self-advertisement, namely by offering advertising space on your blog at a predetermined price.

Income from a blog / website that installs PPC ads and independent ads cannot be underestimated. Lots of bloggers and website owners who gain money from advertisements on their blogs, ranging from tens of millions of rupiah, hundreds of millions of rupiah, to billions of rupiah. One blogger who has a fantastic income from his blog is Linda Ikeji. This Nigerian blogger is estimated to get billions of rupiah per month from his blog.

4. Business Opportunities to Be a Freelance Writer

Nowadays there are quite a lot of freelancers who are pursuing freelance writers, whether they are writing English articles or writing Indonesian articles. English articles are usually more expensive than Indonesian articles. There are several places that can be explored to get jobs from people who are looking for article authors, for example: Fiverr.com, Ads.id, Projects.co.id, Sribulancer.com, and many more.

Why do many people work as freelance writers? It still relates to the online business model in point 3, which is an online business by building a blog / website portal. Usually blogs / websites that have started many visitors will require article writers to update content. The more content that is built, the greater the chance to get traffic. That is why freelance writers are often sought after by blog / website owners.

However, you have to be selective to register as a freelance writer because it is not uncommon for blog / website owners to only pay the author with a very low rate. This low rate makes the writers not eager to create good content. Determine the rate you want from the start, adjust the difficulty level of the topic of the content and the quality of your writing.

5. Selling Web Developer Services

There are many services that can be sold online. One of them is the service of creating a professional website / blog or often called a web developer. This one business opportunity in my opinion is very potential because not many people can make a professional website for their business.

Of course, to become a web developer requires qualified skills to be able to create a professional blog / website. Actually to make a website not too difficult, we can use the WordPress platform with themes that fit the niche website. However, if you want to become a real web developer, then you need to learn the basics of making a good website. The place to learn to make a website that I recommend is BabaStudio.

6. Online MLM Business

This is a Multi Level Marketing business that is run online. Unlike conventional MLM businesses which usually take up time and energy for meeting activities, prospective member follow-up, and purchasing goods, all the processes can be done online.

However, it should be noted that not all MLM businesses have a good system, make sure the online MLM business that you follow has good and profitable products and systems. This one business opportunity can always create new millionaires and billionaires, of course they are people who want to work hard.


Actually there are still many business opportunities with small capital that we can do from home. But of course this article will be very long if you write down all the lists. One thing we need to remember is that even if a business or business is run with small capital, it does not mean that the profits will be small too.

The proof is my acquaintance, he does not have his own product, with a small capital he runs a dropship business, but the income he earns is extraordinary, even greater than the salary of a bank manager. Vision and mission, enthusiasm and hard work carried out continuously will certainly provide maximum results, even exceeding your expectations.

Hopefully this article inspires.
