5 Simple Business Ideas South African Young Women Should Consider

Show Good Heart,Share This

Looking for a small business idea? Here’s a list of 5 ideas to female entrepreneurs who are making it in their respective business niche.
Are you looking to earn some extra money on the side or to potentially start your own business?

Today I want to highlight some of the best small business ideas for women to motivate you to take that first step!

That’s not to say that men can’t pursue these ideas as well, but for today we’re honoring all the female entrepreneurs.

This list contains the businesses that I’ve seen women do exceptionally well with. As an added little bonus I’ve included some amazing women you can learn from no matter which business best suits you!

(And remember these are women just like you and me. They’re not celebrities, they’re not part of a get rich quick scheme. If they can build up amazing businesses you can, too!)

 

1.Blogging

Making money through blogging is seriously like the best thing ever. It’s a wonderful feeling to get paid for your words and ideas.

To be honest, I recently just reignited my blogging spark after taking Elite Blog Academy (the best course EVER!! More on that later this month.) And since then my traffic has doubled and my blogging income is on a steady rise too.

 

 

2.Freelance Writing

Freelance writing is how I got my start in the online income earning world. Freelancing is the best way to make money FAST. (Here’s a complete guide on getting freelance blogging jobs.)

But as with every money making opportunity goes – your own mileage may vary!

Learn from someone who is now making good money from freelance writing and blogging services.

 

3.Online Courses


I mentioned earlier what a HUGE impact Ruth Soukup’s Elite Blog Academy has had on my blog in just one month.

Ruth has seriously created the best online course for blogging or writing that I have ever taken. And I’ve taken a lot of courses!

If you have something to teach get that idea out to the world. Create a membership site and start an online course. Learn as you go!

 

 

4.Affiliate Marketing/Niche Sites

Niche sites are simply websites that are focused on a particular topic and are monetized, usually through affiliate sales. (When you make an affiliate sale you earn a commission from the company you’re promoting.)

I’ve tried my hand at affiliate marketing with niche sites a couple times and miserably failed! That’s not to say it isn’t an awesome business idea. It is! And it’s also fun.

While my niche sites didn’t work out (read about that here) I still had so much fun building them and it was an amazing learning experience.

 

5. Website Management

Website management is a very diverse business and is actually something that I’ve ventured into rather than only freelance writing.

When it comes to website management you can do everything from sell ads, edit and schedule content, hire writers, promote on social media and more.

Since this is such a diverse area I wanted to highlight two women who are successful website managers but make their money in very different ways.

How to Make Money Finding and Selling Old Vintage or Classic Cars

Show Good Heart,Share This

Selling classic cars is a hobby or business many people practice today. From classic car collectors to enthusiasts, classic cars have an inherent charm and enduring popularity which make them in demand even several decades after they have been manufactured. If you are looking into getting into the business of buying and selling classic cars, then here are the steps on how to succeed in doing so.

This is Ford Escort MK1. The Ford Escort Mk1 is perhaps Ford’s single largest success outside of the United States, over 2 million were built between 1968 and 1975, and the name still carries significant weight in the UK and much of Europe. One of the most wanted classic cars good for restoration, also used on the Fast and furious movies, so it is a special thing.

1.Know Where to Look for Classic Cars
You can look for classic cars which are in good condition or you can look for classic cars which need some restoration. Some of the places you can go for great bargains are eBay and other online car dealerships and online classifieds. You can also check newspaper listings, car magazines and online classic car forums. These usually have numerous listings of all kinds of classic cars with different conditions. As you look at cars to buy, make sure to read all the given details and specifications which could help you assess their value.

 

2.Assess Any Necessary Repair and Restoration Work
Once you buy a classic car, you need to determine what kind of repairs or restoration are necessary. Send the car off to a classic car restoration expert so that its original appeal and beauty can be brought back. Although the cost of restoration can be hefty, you should be able to get it all back when you sell the car, since a well-restored classic car can be sold for a good price.

The VW Split Windows were built from the 50s until the 60s. The are one of the most wanted classic cars in South Africa, if you have it, no matter how rusted it is, even without an engine, you can bargain it for R100 000.

 

3.Get Manufacturer and the Model Information
Make sure that you are an expert on the vehicle you have as well as the company that made it. Read historical books on the manufacturer, along with books and documents about the specific make of your car. You can also obtain information from classic car clubs, as well as a list of other individuals who own similar vehicles.

Make use of the VIN code to tell what series it was or what type of model it is, such as if it was a limited edition or not. Add this information to the original paperwork of the car and its original maintenance manual, if you have them. Classic car buyers usually love to find out all about the history of a car before they buy it.

 

4.Research Market Trends
Compare your classic car to others and make use of classic car appraisal guides. You can also have your classic car evaluated by a qualified and professional appraiser. From this, you can establish your asking price and the lowest price that you are willing to let it go for.

Add up the expenses of purchase and restoration and factor them in to your selling price.

 

 

5.Prepare a Good Marketing Scheme
This is the most important thing you should have in order to get top dollar from the sale of your classic car. Study the current market and create a profile of your target market. Study current advertisements to get ideas on how you can market your classic car. Create signs and promotional packets with pictures, detailed descriptions and specifications of the car, location and the price.

 

6.Prepare the Car for the Buyer’s Inspection
Have the car cleaned and polished, inside and out. Park the car in an appealing area, where its features will stand out. Make sure you have tools handy such as a flash light, screwdrivers, adjustable wrench, pliers and a rag. Create a list of the known mechanical problems of the car and how much it would cost to have them repaired. Have a copy of the promotional packet you made to provide to prospective buyers.

 

So, start looking for classic cars and made a business out of things that some consider unwanted.
