Business ideas for women

Pursuing your passion and becoming financially independent by setting up your own business has never been easier. Becoming an online seller gives you the flexibility of working from home, having a great work life balance, opportunity to stay fit, care for your family if the need arises and simultaneously running a successful business. Selling online gives you a platform to reach out to a larger customer base, easy account management and much more. If you are wondering about what to sell online, here are few suggestions based on creative interests:

  • Arts and Craft items: Are you an artist who loves creating things? Why not make use of your talent and display your products to people who are interested in your art? Handmade items like artificial flowers, decorative pieces, keychains, scented candles, greeting cards and soft toys could be sold online. This goes on to say, that if you have anything worth selling, you will find buyers.
  • Women’s Clothing: Many women have turned their boutique business into online retail. Being a woman, you can easily understand your customers’ preferences and cater to them accordingly. Women’s clothing like kurtas, salwaars, sarees, dresses and bridal wear are some of the top-selling products in the clothing industry.
  • Jewellery: There is something about jewellery that most women appreciate. If you are someone who loves jewellery, this is one category that you could consider selling online. You could sell jewellery online, like handmade and fashion jewellery. Items like earrings, bangles, necklaces, bracelets, rings and anklets are bought online by customers quite often.
  • Home décor: Do you have an eye for detail? Do you look at a space and visualize the best ways to decorate it? Then home décor may be something you would be interested in dealing. You can either make or procure items like vases, artificial flowers, drapes, cushions, tapestries, paintings, clocks, decals, showpieces and more and sell them online.
  • Model Making:  This is a category that requires very little investment and is completely based on your talent. If you enjoy model making, taking this hobby as a profession could be a good idea. Whether it is clay or wood models, figurines or vehicles, you can sell these products online. There is no better way to earn money than by doing what you love.
  • Knitting and Sewing: Remember how your mother or grandmother would knit you colourful sweaters? If you have inherited this talent, you could consider selling sweaters, baby socks and mitts, mufflers and cardigans online. Embroidered clothing, table cloths, mats, pillow covers, cloth bags and wall-hangings not just look great but can also be sold online to a wide range of customers.

Setting up these businesses does not require large investment or business experience. In addition to this, you also have the option of sourcing products unique to your region and selling them online. Choose a business that best matches your interest, convenience and helps you grow as an entrepreneur. One of our sellers found huge success in selling clothing right from her home.
