Ever feel like starting a side business only to find that you’re holding yourself back because you can’t figure out a business for an introvert like you? Or maybe you’re just not sure where to start and need a little guidance? Well, I got great news for you, you’re not alone.

To help you get started on your journey, here are three solid hustles to consider: dropshipping, online arbitrage, affiliate marketing.

Dropshipping

This is an amazing business concept that entrepreneurs are utilizing to create income. The general idea is you don’t own any inventory or stock. When people go online and shop through your store, whether it be Shopify, Etsy, eBay or Amazon, they make a purchase through you or your store.

Once you receive their money, you take it and purchase the item they just bought from your store from a supplier for significantly less. The supplier ships the item directly from their warehouse. The customer gets the product they want, you make the difference between what you paid plus applicable fees minus the cost of the item, and the supplier sells a unit of product for the price they want. It’s a win-win-win situation!

Arbitrage

Gary Vaynerchuk talks a lot about thrifting and going to garage sells. The idea is that you buy significantly discounted items that you know will sell, and, in turn, resell them on eBay, Amazon, or some other similar platform.

Now, the business is easy and can be fairly lucrative if you know what you’re doing. You can even shop at a dollar store, Ross, Salvation Army, or any other specialty store. The most important part of the business is finding items at a discount that you know will sell quickly. Again business is very easy, you just have to be a little creative and put in the hustle.

Affiliate Marketing

The simple idea of affiliate marketing is you’re marketing products and/or services for someone else. When someone buys said product or service from your recommendation, you make an affiliate commission. There’s many ways to do this business, but one of the most common ways is creating blog content or creating ads that drive traffic to your offer. You don’t need to put your face out there, nor do you need to create your own product. The business is simple, but takes time and patience to master.

There you have it, guys, three simple businesses any new intropreneur can start. The best thing about these businesses for intropreneurs is you never have to have face-to-face interaction with customers or suppliers if you don’t want to. You can do everything from your computer and people don’t have to know who you are!
