Well If you have good driving skills and can able to drive for a whole day then this business can be fit for you. I will explain to you in simple terms.

 (1) If you have enough money to buy a vehicle, then I recommend you buy a good mileage car so that it will not hurt your pocket. 

(2) If you don’t have enough capital then you can avail of a loan easily to buy a vehicle.

Dropshipping/e-commerce stores: 

According to some marketing giants, the Dropshipping Or E-commerce business is one of the most trending businesses. So firstly you need to know What is the difference between dropshipping and ecommerce?

Dropshipping means you take online orders of a product that you don’t have physically and is present with the supplier. On behalf of the supplier, you sell it to customers and earn a commission out of it in return. 


For example: a product’s actual cost is in which a supplier marked a price of 100 and you sold the same product to the customer for 250, so in this, you earn 150 and the supplier earns 100.

On the other hand, E-commerce means you have possession of the goods and you sell the product through your website.

Now the question in your mind is how to start this business.


  • Firstly, you need a marketplace from where you can sell your product, it can be either Facebook or Google. But I recommend you use Facebook ads for this
  • If you don’t know how to run Facebook ads, then you can take up the course free from YouTube or some paid courses that can help you in running ads.
  • Thirdly, you need a winning product that you think can be profitable for you and if you don’t find one then you need to experiment with it.
  • In between you need a Shopify website which is 24$ per month to showcase your products to customers, So that when the customer sees the ads, he or she will click the ad that will redirect to a landing page where they can see the content view or purchase a product.
  • You need copywriting, video editing, and social media management skills to run that business
  • Then you need a packing boy if it is e-commerce, apart from that you need a telecaller to confirm the orders and to report the non-delivery orders
  • Total expenses include: Facebook ads + shipping charges + cash on delivery charges + rent charges+ Product costs will be equal to around 40-50K at the start.
  • You can order products from Aliexpress or Indiamart.

Affiliate marketing:

 Affiliate marketing means a person promotes a third-party product in order to earn a commission. It is of two types(a)  Paid (b) Free. For paid you have to take some courses from the company who are promoting affiliate marketing and then you need to resell the course. 

From my experience, I can tell you that you can start at a minimum of 500 and people are earning 50K-1 lakh per month.

For free, you can become an Amazon affiliate or Flipkart affiliate where you can list your product and sell your products or if you buy a product then the other company gives you a reselling right from your link.

 If someone buys a product and register themselves for some course then the earning will come into your bank account.
