  1. Start a clothing line

Starting a clothing line can be a rewarding experience for creative entrepreneurs with a vision.

You can create a simple and attractive line of printed clothing or create an entire cut and sew collection that features different pieces and sensational additions. Some apparel and clothing products that you can consider for your brand include dresses, socks, long and short sleeve shirts.

  1. Launch a dropshipping business

As a dropshipper, you do not manufacture physical products and do not need to work manually. You also do not spend money on buying things for reselling. Dropshipping is not an easy business model to succeed in. For that reason you need to use specific product research tools, such as SaleSource, for more information visit:

Additionally, you do not have extra costs related to renting an office or a warehouse. You only need a marketable idea, source for goods, marketing plan and strategies and sales channel.

Whether you are niche-focused or want to cast a wide net when it comes to your concept and products, it’s important to do product research to help you get an idea of what is selling.

  1. Smart home products

IoT (Internet of Things) allows people to have a smart home. People love connecting all the devices they have so that they can be able to communicate with each other effectively and anticipate their needs.

For instance, when you come home from work and open your garage door, this will send a signal to the AC to turn on. It will also signal your smart speaker to start playing relaxing music to relieve stress.

The mood tracker application on your mobile phone can ascertain the stress levels. This creates a great opportunity for you to start selling these products and make money.

  1. Start an eBook business

Nowadays, you do not need a publisher to sell books. This is why selling eBooks on Shopify is a great eCommerce business idea.

You can get a writer to ghostwrite the books for you or write them yourself. As long as you write something of value about any trending educational topic, then you will have an opportunity of selling a good number of copies.

  1. Teach an online educational course

If you are a teacher or a successful entrepreneur with valuable knowledge to share with other people across the globe, this is a great business idea. You can sell courses to people because the demand is high. You can provide educational content that people can’t find anywhere else.

  1. Sell second-hand products

Most people do not mind using quality second-hand products that are in good condition. You can start by collecting second-hand items and post them on Shopify. These items can include furniture, jewellery and clothes. Make sure you offer these items at reasonable prices.
