I personally go through all of these small business ideas, like I have tried doing it, and even most of them I’m still doing it up until today.
In fact just last month, I made almost P50,000.00 pesos with just this mini-blog alone that I have right here, which is going to be part of the ways or small business ideas that I’m going to share with you today.
So just spend some minutes here, and I will guarantee that you will not be wasting your time. Let’s dive right into it…
Small Business Ideas In The Philippines
There are actually tons of small business ideas in the Philippines you can get started, especially nowadays. With the massive growth of the internet industry in the country, it also creates lots of ways to make money online or help us to get started or create a small business.
All that really takes is learning some modern skills and some internet device like a laptop or cellphone (which the majority of us already have) and yes, of course, the business idea that you are going to hop into.
The good thing about learning new skills or learning anything you wanted to learn these days is that information is just one search away and you can have it, and it’s even free most of the time just like what I’m about to share with you today.
But yeah! since you’re here because you have 4,000 pesos and you wanted to know how you can start a business with the amount you have right now as your capital.
So let’s just focus our topic about it, the small business in the Philippines with a 4k capital.
Best Small Business In The Philippines With 4k Capital
Here are the three best small business ideas you can start with a 4k capital here in the Philippines.
Just like what I have mentioned above, I’m only going to share with you things that I personally do, and in our case here, a small business that I have experience with, and find it a great option to get started creating your first very own business.
Without any further talking, let’s get started with the first one…
I personally consider blogging as one of the best small business you can start doing, the internet industry in the Philippines is still on its way reaching the maximum peak and that’s what we are going to ride on.
Lots of people, even the majority of my friends think that blogging or starting your own website is going to be the hardest thing that they might do in their whole life. They thought that they need to be an IT expert (have the ability to code) whatsoever, which is completely not true.
Yeah, it’s actually true that you need to have programming skills to build a website, but it’s true 10 to 15 years ago. But not these days, because today, you can build a website as easy as cooking fried eggs.
In fact, I have a free step by step tutorial where you can watch through [ Clicking Here ] and it will walk you through the whole process of how you can create your own website or a blog.
Some of you might be started to think right now that blogging is not going to be for you because maybe, you don’t how to write, or whatever excuses you have in mind right now (let me know in the comments). But I want to let you know that, that’s one of my excuses too.
I have not finished any college education and I doubted myself if I can do writing just like what I have here, but here it is, you’re reading it. Yeah! I admit I’m not really good at writing, I even used tools like Grammarly just to help me construct my sentences.
It really just needs some desire and reasons why you need to do it, any skills that you need can be learned along the way as long as you have that burning desire to get started.
And with blogging, there are many ways to make money out of it and it’s a long term business. Aside from that, here in the Philippines blogging is one of the least taken business opportunities, so it’s not that crowded yet. Hop in, and let’s make some noise!!
How Much Does It Cost To Start A Blog In The Philippines?
You can start a blog in the Philippines with just P1,500.00 – P5,000.00 pesos, it depends on what web services like website hosting and the domain name that you are going to have for you’re website or blog. The duration of your subscription will also affect, the more years you’ll subscribe the more money you need to get started.
But with the tutorial that I have right here [ Click Here ], you’re P1,500.00 will be more than enough to have to create your very first own website or a blog.
And by the way, you might get confused about the difference between a blog and a website. “Website” is the term used majority for a business internet presence (like a company website), a “Blog” on the other side is more into content, just like what I have here.
Here’s How To Earn Money By Blogging In The Philippines
Here are the ways on how to earn money through blogging specifically here in the Philippines. I’m going to share every knowledge that I know about each of the options.
But as usual, if you have questions, don’t hesitate to leave it in the comment section at the bottom of this page.
I’m just going to give you some quick ideas about each of the ways that I have below, so if you really wanted to know every detail you need, like the process on how you can do it yourself, I’ll be linking you to other useful pages. Or you can just search tutorials on YouTube and there’s a lot o free guides there.
1. Display Advertisements
Selling ad space on a blog is one of the most popular ways to earn money from a blog. I know for sure you’ve noticed that I have lots of them here on this page, and yeah! I’m making money out of it. Even if you’re just seeing it and do nothing I’m still earning, and I will earn more money once you clicked it.
Google AdSense from Google is one of the best and most popular platforms you can join into once you already have a blog, they can help you earn money from your blog by allowing them to display ads on your content, all you just need to do is insert some code on your blog from them, and they will display targeted ads to whoever reads your articles.
2. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is my favorite way to earn money from my blog. In fact, I’m earning more money with affiliate marketing compared to the advertisements that I have here.
Affiliate marketing simply means being affiliated to some programs like the Shopee Affiliate Program that will enable you to promote any products they have on their website and earn a percentage of commission every successful purchase from a customer that you have referred to using your unique affiliate link.
Here’s how affiliate marketing works with blogging, I’m going to give a scenario here.
Let’s just say someone is searching on Google about a cellphone called “Huawei Nova 7i”, and then you have an article on your blog about it, you did your best to optimize your content, so your article shows up on the top of search results.
And then that particular person who’s searching about “Huawei Nova 7i” landed on your blog post where your affiliate links are placed, that person clicks the link, buy the item, and boom you make a commission.
The best thing about affiliate marketing is you will be earning even while you’re sleeping, (passive income) you’ll just have to really have your article ranks on search engines like from Google search results. I’m going to also share some ideas about this later, on how you can do it.
I also have a detailed guide about affiliate marketing, just [ Click Here ] to go to that page.
3. Offering Services
If you will start a blog, you will learn lots of skills that you can also offer as your services to whoever visited your blog.
Skills like building a website (I even do this myself, charging people if they wanted me to build a blog/website for them) or you can also offer other services even if it’s not related to blogging.
Maybe services like creating a logo, social media marketing like managing Facebook Advertisements, or whatever ever skills that you know that you can potentially offer to your blog visitors.
4. Selling Your Own Product
Another way to earn money from your blog is by selling your own product, it could be a tangible product or a downloadable file like eBooks.
I personally do this option too, reselling some website tools and you’ll find it once you watch that video tutorial of mine about how to start a blog, and I’m earning money passively out of it too.
There are actually lots of other ways to earn money with blogging, it would take us a whole day if I’m going to share each of them here. You’ll just have to get started, that’s the real deal right now. Start your blog today, watch this free tutorial I have here, just [ Click Here ] to watch it.
2. Direct Selling Business
Direct selling business is one of the most lucrative types of business you can start here in the Philippines. Have you noticed “buy and sell groups on Facebook “? That almost every minute there’s a new product listing that pops out? I’m sure you did, they are the simple proof that selling online can really make you a living if can do it the right way.
But Yhong? Is it really possible to start a direct selling business with just less than 4,000 pesos capital? Well, yes. You can even start for free like you can do a “pre-order” type of selling, (just get the product from the supplier when someone orders it from you, but always be prepared for product returns and bogus buyer) or simply find a supplier and ask them to become their reseller.
Some Factors You Need To Consider If You Want To Start A Direct Selling Business
- Choosing The Right Product To Sell – You should always figure out a way to find a great product you can resell that is already crashing the market. I mean a product that is easy to sell because of it’s proven results. It’s hard to do an experiment for a product (market testing) and lost a great amount of time and effort doing it, so always choose what’s already working.
- Product Profit Margins– No matter how fast that particular product sell’s, you should also don’t forget what you can get every time you make a sale, your profit margin. Go for the product with at least a 15% to 35% profit margin.
- Business System – A business system is what makes your business stay up and running. It’s either a business system that would let you maximize the business and make you more money or a system that would lessen the amount of effort you that you usually exert to your business.
If you want a product supplier directly from a manufacturer, I know a website where you can spend your P4,000.00 and get product supplies to get started, it’s a website called Alibaba.com
3. Network Marketing Business
Someones told me that more than 60% of high-end cars (sports cars) owners in the Philippines are network marketers. I don’t know if it is a piece of concrete information but I believed with what that person had told me because I also noticed it.
I will not deny the fact that I once became a network marketer, yes! it’s actually where I have learned most of the selling skills that I have right now. It’s where I develop my self-confidence like standing in a front of a crowd of people sharing the business opportunity
Network marketing business is I think one of the best stepping stones to get started as an entrepreneur. They have amazing training and the best business system that really works.
It’s too good to be true sometimes for most people, but if you can just do it the right way and learn everything that it takes to be a successful network marketer, then there’s really a huge chance to succeed.
Network marketing or multi-level marketing is the only business model that you can start with a very minimal amount of capital but can have you a chance to earn more than you can ever imagine.
But of course, you should always keep in mind and always consider to do research first before deciding to join any particular network marketing company.
Some of the most known and trusted network marketing company today here in the Philippines are “Lean N’ Green Trading Corporation“, “IAM Worldwide”, “Frontrow International”, And “Alphaneworld, NWorld”.
I think that’s all I have for you guys today, the bottom line is that you really need to take action and always consider having a passion or the love of what you do. If you are not happy with what you have right now, like the job you have, I have this line for you “gusto mong may bago? simple lang, gawa ka rin ng bago”.
Right Skills + Passion + Right System = Success
