Top 16 Businesses that you can do online if you have no skills are:

1. Personal creations

First off, there are personal creations, like arts and crafts. For example, if you’re a painter, you could sell your works of art with an investment of nothing more than art supplies and your own time. Platforms like EtsyeBay and Amazon cater to creators and make it easy to turn a profit from your work.

2. In-home services

Services don’t cost you any money up-front because they’re intangible goods. And if you’re working in people’s own homes or neighborhoods, you won’t need a physical headquarters for your business. For example, you could start a babysitting service, a dog-walking or pet-sitting service or something like landscaping or snow-plowing.

3. Repair or skill-based services

If you have a specific skill, you could use your skilled labor as the main revenue driver for your business. For example, if you’re a handyman, you could cater to homeowners who don’t know much about home repairs.

Just like in-home services, these types of gigs don’t require you to have a physical establishment and don’t require you to invest in anything up-front, except perhaps the tools or equipment you’re going to need for the job, which will vary in cost.

4. Consulting

Many workers think about becoming entrepreneurs only after getting several years of professional experience under their belt. Think about the industry you’re in, and how much you’ve been able to learn in that time. Up-and-coming professionals, or startup business owners will likely be glad to pay you for your expertise. Consulting is a service that costs only time to produce, but can be highly valuable as a career opportunity.

5. Resale

The idea behind resale is simple: You acquire products and sell them to other people. You can use dropshipping or wholesaling to acquire these goods. With dropshipping, you’ll ship directly from the manufacturer (and turn a lower profit), but you’ll need almost no startup cash. With wholesaling, you’ll need more money and space up-front, but you’ll end up with more control and more money.

6. Micropreneurship

Of course, you could also piece together your own miniature business through micropreneurship and shared-economy opportunities. For example, you could drive for a service like Uber, or rent your home out through AirBnB or find similar services that make use of what you’ve already got.


It is the age of the internet as we all know and in today’s world people are looking for worthy opinions about all sorts of things. A blog costs $15 per article on WordPress and it is certainly an up and coming business.

8.YouTube Channel

 People spend 3.25 Billion hours per month watching videos on Youtube. No wonder it is a booming place for advertisers etc. Starting your own Youtube channel and making it big would certainly attract advertisers and you will earn your money.

9.Business Coaching

If you possess a great deal of business experience then you can make a business out of it by helping up and coming entrepreneurs in starting their own business.

10.Social Media Consultant

If you have the aptitude for marketing you can enter the market as a Social Media Consultant where a firm can hire you to market them online.

11.Web Design

They say first impression is the lasting impression and it is certainly so with websites and businesses know that. If you know a bit of code and can make a decent website you could certainly find willing employers

12.Affiliate marketing

If you’re a person who loves leaving customer reviews on sites like Amazon, stop doing it for free. Word-of-mouth advertising is still a huge lead generator for many companies, and a lot of businesses are willing to share a portion of their profits with persuasive individuals who will promote their products to the public.


Selling on eBay is not all that easy, as you need to find a niche where profit margins are high and competition is low. If you can do so, you can be running a successful business in no time.

14.App Development

Mobile apps are more famous than ever, and if you’re an app developer then you are a very happy person. Gather a group of classmates and get going on that business idea.

15.Virtual Assistant

You have flexible timings to manage the clients and you can work overtime if you need to. You can charge anywhere between $20 dollars and above depending on the job you do.

16.Online Currency/Stock Trade

I suppose I haven’t spoken about the finance side of things and these are two of the oldest businesses in the books. If you have a thing for money and trading this may be your way to go.

After you get your business started and start earning revenue, your lack of startup capital will become less of a problem. You can reap the profits from your venture and reinvest them, or use them to start an even bigger business.
