1. Sell Products Online. You can create a simple online shop and begin to sell products online. If you aren’t creating your own product you can always do drop shipping. Drop shipping is a retail fulfillment method where an online store sells stock it does not have, instead, when a product is sold, it purchases the item from a third party and has it shipped directly to the customer, the merchant never sees or handles the product. You can also create your own private label.
