Shopify is one of the biggest eCommerce platforms in the world, and it’s perfectly natural to wonder how to make money with Shopify. Well, there are a few business ideas you could try, and they may even become the best with the right tactics.

Let’s go ahead and take a look at some of the advantages of using Shopify and starting your own business.

1. Start A Dropshipping Business

Dropshipping businesses have grown larger and larger, and more people are going in that direction. That happens because it can be very easy to set up a dropshipping store, as Shopify offers you all the tools.

You can choose to import products directly from AliExpress for example and have everything in your store in a very short time. What’s very important when it comes to dropshipping stores is the branding. How do you want people to know your store? What and how are you going to sell? Have you tested the products to make sure they are made out of quality materials?

All these things need to be taken into consideration when starting a dropshipping store, but it’s a great way to make a lot of money from your computer. 

2. Start Your Own Brand

More and more people are creating and promoting their own brands, and it’s beautiful. Think about what you want to sell. Let’s say you want to create a clothing line. What will you need to do? 

Well, you’re going to have to create your designs or hire someone to do it for you, you will need to find your factories to produce your designs and then create stocks and add your products to the Shopify store.

Of course, it may seem a little complicated, but it’s amazing to have something you are passionate about and make money with it!

3. Sell Artwork Online

This is a method that works for musicians, photographers, painters, sculptors, etc. If you are creating unique pieces of work, then you may want to have them exposed in an online store and make money with Shopify this way. 

Depending on what you are selling, you may have to deliver the items yourself, or create download links. In general, with digital-based businesses it can be very easy. As long as you make sure that the customers know exactly what they’re buying, there are no reasons at all for you not to try this method. 

4. Create A Portfolio For Your Home-Based Business

Home-based businesses are growing more and more popular and we couldn’t be happier about it. Now, in order to promote your business, you may want to start somewhere. Shopify offers you the best possibilities to create portfolios, as it’s very easy to use and you can customize most of the elements.

Even more, if you need more custom pages, you can get yourself a page-building app and create interesting and eye-catching designs. 

5. Create And Share An Online Course

Let’s say you’re a specialist in something, but you need some place to create and share your course. Shopify is the best place to do so, thanks to the very interesting system it has. You can either use the platform to advertise the course, or even sell it using the integrated shopping cart and checkout. 

With the right advertising, you have all the chances of even becoming a guru in your field, and have more and more people interested in your course. 

6. Start Your Own Blog

I’ve heard a lot of people saying that Shopify isn’t the right platform for bogs, but that’s not completely true. Most blogs will look for ways to monetize their websites, and selling branded products may just be the way to do so.

Besides, when it comes to adding AdSense to your blog, Shopify is considered to be a trustworthy platform, and you can perfectly customize the placement of your ads on your home page, blog page and even in your blogs.

7. Start A Podcast

A podcast is not for everyone, but if you’re one of them, then Shopify is perfect for this. You don’t need a lot of pages in order to start a podcast and after you start uploading, all you need to do is advertise and maybe even create a Spotify page for it and link them together. 

In time, people have grown to love podcasts, as they can listen to them while driving, while doing house activities and even running, and it’s an amazing learning method for most. 

It’s incredible to have something to say, but it’s even better to be able to share those things and even make some money in the process. 

8. Advertise Your Book

I’m seeing self-published books more and more, and the truth is that you don’t really need an agency to help you with that. 

As long as you have the talent and the skills to put together a book, you don’t need anything else. You just need to create the best landing page possible and make sure that your book is in your online store. For this, you can use a few marketing techniques. You can sell the digital version of the book, you can sell physical versions to the ones interested and even make a few copies with autographs in order to spice things up a little bit. 

Even though it can be hard to become a self-published author, you will have full control over your entire business, and that’s a huge advantage.

In the end, it’s incredibly important to feel good while you’re running your business. Be it an online store or just your portfolio to help you land more clients, you need to be confident that it’s the right thing to do and put all your efforts into it!

You can start this process and make money with Shopify in no time!

9. Start a collaborative product

There are always collaborations to be done. People work well together and there’s a new app that is coming soon where you can Collaborate with products while getting paid automatically. It also syncs across multiple platforms such as Shopify, Etsy, Wix, Squarespace and much more.

CollabPay is the app you are looking for split payments on Shopify.
