Don't forget to share some of your ideas that I might not have covered in the comment box below.
#1 Social Media Management
Social media has become part and parcel of any company’s setup. Many companies use the platform as a primary way with which they communicate with their stakeholders and their customers. Sometimes it can be a challenge because it takes a lot of time and effort to effectively manage their social media handles.
With the advance in technology and technology users it is expected that social media use in 2019 will increase by 23%. This could be an opportunity for those people that want to make a career in this industry.
Start building your online presence by following big companies and other social media influencers that have a large following. For twitter users make sure you retweet and like posts that are within your niche. Don’t be surprised when you get a direct message from a corporate looking for your services as a brand promoter. It has happened with people before and it could be you next in line.
#2 Vacation or Rental System
For those interested in the hospitality industry this can also be another breakthrough in 2019. It is an industry that over the recent past has risen and it continues to rise every day. For those people that live in tourist destinations, this can be your chance because you can act as a tour guide.
It is also possible for you to manage homes of those tourists that do not want to list their homes on listing companies. You can take care of their homes, clean and maintain them while they are on vacation. Some of them might also have guests coming over, and you can take care of those guests.
#3 Flipping Websites
Many people are not aware that they can buy and sell websites online. If you are a great web developer you can create your own website from scratch to finish, and you can list it on websites like flippa.com and earn some considerable amount of money.
You can purchase websites that you think are underdeveloped and modify them and sell them for some profit. It is also possible to auction domains. An advantage of this is the fact that in most cases you don't spend anything. All that is needed is time and consistency.
#4 Gadget Repairing
This is a startup idea worth exploring. The year 2018 saw an increase in people who use gadgets like Smartphones, tablets laptops and so on. This trend is expected to go up in the year 2019. Most gadgets get destroyed by water, screen breakages or faulty batteries and so on.
Repairing this is easy. Anyone can do it with manuals and tutorials online. If you think you are in a position to explore this area then 2019 might be your year. An advantage of this is that it can be done from anywhere. All that you need is to secure business model.
#5 Online Education Courses
Many people and companies are setting up online portals where students can sign up and learn about different subjects. You can also do the same. Knowledge is something that people continue to pursue and it won't stop anytime soon. You can research online for marketable courses and create tutorials that can help learners increase their knowledge.
You can also post your tutorials on other websites like lynda.com. There are many websites where you can still do the same. All you need is to carry out a research of the website that fits the need. The most important thing to remember is that there are courses that are marketable more than others. Make sure that the content you share is relevant to the audience.
#6 Online Coaching
All of us are talented in one way or another. We can share these talents online and get paid. Most people use YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and other social media tools to share their talents and skills. It gives them an opportunity to build a network and a client base.
Most of these trainings are linked to merchandise and products. Members can purchase the products hence generating an income.
With increase in social media users you can also make it in this industry. Don’t look down upon your talent, knowledge or any skill that you might have. Someone might just need it.
#7 Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is the next big thing. Many people are moving from traditional selling methods to e-commerce. While doing so many companies are using influencers and online users to boost their sales. You can sign up as an affiliate marketer with some of the leading brands and you can make money from commissions.
If you have a large following on twitter or Facebook this is your thing. Make sure that you select products that are in the market and trending. Also check the commission percentage because some are higher and others are lower. An advantage of this is the fact that you can work from anywhere around the world.
You can use your influence to review some of the products and link them to the product itself something that can play a big role in increasing chances for people to buy through your link.

There are many ideas worth exploring; as long as they include technology there are high chances that your business idea will be a success. All that you need is a good plan, consistency, discipline, and focus. Some people sit on their ideas with an excuse that they did not have the necessary capital to implement the idea.
