5 Best Small Business Ideas in the Philippines

The economy looks like its worsening each day but doesn’t be deceived; broke or not, people need services. There are so many businesses one can start in the Philippines at the moment. Big or small, there is 70% chance that they will flourish. Here are a few you could consider.

English instruction

Many Philippine’s are struggling to enter the US. Maybe this may change with Trump’s reign, but 5years shouldn’t threaten a strategic entrepreneur. Trump will soon leave office. Start training English in the Philippines and you will reap. Besides, it is not that the English training demand is only because people want to go to the west. There is a high demand for English teachers in schools. Philippine adopted English tutoring in schools just recently in 2013. Parents who want their kids to perform well are one great source of income for an English tutor.

Content writing

The wave of content writing hasn’t left the Philippines. There is a massive demand for content writers to match with the request for SEO content and internet marketing. If you are considering relocating to the Philippines, you can first test the market by looking for writing jobs online. See how it goes and then you will use that information to determine whether you should start up your content outsourcing company. But trust me, just like it is in the US, the UK or wherever else where content writing is booming, so it is in the Philippines.

Network marketing

Many product firms are being planted in Philippine right now, and the need for network marketing is high. The good thing about network marketing is that you can franchise a bigger firm and flourish. There are mostly cosmetic, herbal and beverage companies. Do your homework, though. Learn from the best like yoga for dummies. You don’t want to franchise a business that sells fake products.

Social Media Marketing

One way you can make money in social media marketing is to position yourself as a social media agent. Many people want to advertise on Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms but they don’t have the time to manage their social media pages. Others don’t even know the procedure to get their ads running on the social media. Take advantage of that. You can do this from the comfort of your home. If you already live in the Philippines, do a door to door marketing to get clients then return home, sit on your computer and make money. All you will need here is trust with your customers and a good internet connection.

Online Stores

If you don’t have money to rent a shop, try an online store. Have a delivery man and focus on interacting and taking customers’ orders from the internet.

Online stores are flourishing not only in the Philippines but all over the globe. Everyone likes to be treated like a king by having the stuff they buy delivered. Grab the chance. You will make good profits without investing much especially in rent.

Milk Tea

Philippine’s love milk. They will go to the moon and back just to get a nice cup of milk tea. This isn’t about to change any soon. Strategize your tea shop on a busy street, and you won’t regret it. If you can’t afford to rent don’t be afraid to start. You can begin by delivering tea to offices in flasks in the early mornings and evenings, or you can as well prepare the milk and sell your home.
