We all know 2020 was a tough year for everyone. Most of the people lost their jobs and couldn’t find a new job. But if we don’t prepare for 2021 may be possible 2021 was a worse year than 2020. That is why we discussed some of the best online businesses in 2021 you need to start so you don’t lose your money and prepare for 2021.

The US unemployment rate is 47.2% percent which means people couldn’t find a job and these numbers are too high. These guys who lost their jobs because of the COVID-19 pandemic may want to start their own online business in 2021.

These online businesses which I am telling you in this story. If you start doing these best online businesses in 2021 then you are not facing financial difficulties in the future and you don’t need to work for 9 to 5 because you can make enough money to live a healthy life.

Let’s learn what is the best online business in 2021 you need to start so you can make more money in 2021. But before I tell you about online businesses. You need to understand that some business requires more money and some business requires less so see what is suitable for you according to your situation.


E-Commerce is growing day by day especially in COVID-19 when people all over the world are at home. Nobody goes outside because of COVID-19 they buy online. So they don’t need to go outside to buy their stuff.

This is an excellent opportunity for you to start an e-commerce business and sell your product online. People make millions of dollars in an e-commerce business. This is a billion-dollar industry you also need to jump in but before you start doing and thinking about this I clarify that you also start an e-commerce business with Amazon which is good if you are a beginner.

Because if you sell your stuff with Amazon you don’t need to worry about delivery, payment method, website difficulties. you just need to sell good stuff and do some marketing of your product. Which is quite not difficult.

People are making millions by selling on Amazon. Now the other option is not for everyone. It is for those who have more money to spend you can create your e-commerce website on Spotify for selling your products.

But you need to take care of a lot of things such as payment method integration, shipping all over the world, and brand awareness. Again this method is not for everyone but for those who know the e-commerce business model and have more money to spend.

But I recommend you first start with Amazon because you don't need to worry about delivery and shipping or payment method. Amazon takes care of everything for you. Then over a while, if you know the business model and make some money you shift to your e-commerce site.

Affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing is the best way to make money online if you don't have any money to create your product. You can simply go to a website like Amazon. They have a program called the Amazon associate.

If you sign up for this program. Next, go to whatever product you like then Amazon gives you the link to that product, and if anyone will go to that link and buy this particular product you can earn a decent commission from it.

You can create your Facebook or Instagram advertising to promote your affiliate product. You can buy Hosting and create your website for promoting your affiliate product with the help of content marketing.

Creating an affiliate account is free but promoting it requires some money usually you expect 100 dollars or so. but this is less money than any business. Most of the people will promote affiliate products with no money, but they have a thousand email lists or Facebook pages with a thousand likes.

If you don't have any of these you need to spend some money that will give the best ROI if you spend your money right. you have two options Facebook advertising or buy hosting or promote affiliate products with content marketing.

Sure there are some more options as well but these two are more effective than anyone else. affiliate marketers use these two methods to generate great income for themselves.

How much you can make from affiliate marketing?

People are making 6 figures with affiliate marketing. But it does not mean it is the fastest way to become rich overnight. People are making 6 figures. Because They struggled and failed many times before they reached this milestone. But it is possible to make 6 figures with affiliate marketing if you have patience and consistency in work.

Create your online course

If you are an accountant you can teach accounting by creating your online course on Udemy. Because of COVID-19, everyone is in their home. People love to enhance their learning. You can create your course and at this time.

It’s more likely that people will buy your course. because people are bored in their homes, and they want to spend time learning new stuff. You help them enhance their knowledge by creating your course online about your expertise.

Whether you are a designer or mathematician expert whatever your expertise is you can create your course online about your expertise. But creating a course is not enough; you need to promote your course as well. The best way to Promote is Facebook advertising Because this will give effective results at a cheap price. if you know how to use Facebook advertising.

How much money can you make by creating a course?

Normally, people earn at the beginning within 30 to 50 dollars per month. But if you know how to promote your course or provide great knowledge in your course then you easily make 1k to 10k per month or even some people make 10k to 50k dollars per month.

It is upon your course Education or your promotion how much you earn. if your course gives more effective education than anyone else. This will encourage your students to buy more courses from you then you don't need to promote your course on Facebook advertising or any other network.


E-commerce business is best If you have some money to spend and sell your product online. But make sure you do business with Amazon. if you're starting your own then it will be more Costly.

Affiliate marketing is for those who have 100 dollars or fewer to spend. You can promote someone else's product and earn a commission from it. The best way to promote affiliate products is Facebook advertising or your website.

If you are an expert in some field whether it’s business or arts-related you can make an online course on Udemy. This business requires some money to spend on the promotion of your course and nothing else.

You can make an average of 1k to 10k a month according to How much valuable information your course provides. Most people make 50k a month as well because of the valuable course they provide.
