All you need to do is find people who want to sell their property or vehicles but don’t know how to do it effectively. Let them supply you with the details and photos, and then post ads for them online on sites like Jiji, as well as on social media. When they sell the items thanks to your services, you will get a commission, which can sometimes reach 20% of the price.

If you don’t even have a tiny budget to import goods from China, you can start a dropshipping business. With dropshipping, all you need to do is take photos and product descriptions from Chinese wholesalers and post them online. Then, when the customer wants to buy the product, you simply place an order at the wholesaler’s website and include the delivery details of the customer. That way, you sell the product without actually having any inventory.

5. Cooking
