This is what shopkeepers, vegetable vendors, grocery supermarkets and branded product’s showrooms are doing. They source the product from manufacturing hubs and resale it at a premium price to buyers.

The excuse-maker in you would say, “Really?? Can we start selling something in the age of Amazon, Flipkart, Myntra, Walmart and Bigbasket? The answer is yes! You can sell. E-commerce penetration in India is still in its developing phase, but in USA it has matured. Still, a major chunk of people head to offline stores in united states to buy products. So, no matter where this e-commerce goes, people will continue flooding offline stores to buy grocery, garments and daily products.

What to sell?

Anything. There is a hell lot of options available to start making videos. Below you’ll find my favorite 8 topics on which I would love to create videos.

Why won’t you start this business idea

The excuse-maker in me would try his best to stop me from making videos. He says, “there are already a lot of youtubers. You’ll not succeed now. It’s too late to start a youtube channel”. It’s not true, youtube algorithm supports new comers. If the content is good and people are searching for it then you’ll succeed. If you don’t know editing, you can learn. It’s simple. If you don’t have camera, laptop, microphone etc. It’s okay. you can start with simple videos through your phone. It could be game recording videos or some funny videos. If you find yourself enjoying while making videos, you may pursue it further. Buy the required gadgets and go all-in.
