Being able to study abroad is something that will literally change your life and do so in a good way. Experiencing another culture really does broaden your mind. It opens up your eyes to all kinds of ideas and new ways of doing things.
The problem is that studying is expensive. This is the case wherever you choose to do it. But, usually, if you study in your home country you can find a part-time job to cover some of the costs. If you study abroad, the language barrier and regulations can make that difficult to do. But, what anyone can do is to run an online company.
Become an affiliate marketer or dropship other people’s products
This can be done from anywhere. All you need to do is to find something that you know you can sell. For example, the products that mydoorsign makes.
Every company needs signage. Some just need to put their opening times on the door and point customers towards the toilets. While others need hundreds of signs to be able to run their business efficiently. For example, in a warehouse, every aisle and picking bay needs to be labelled.
The fact that every firm needs some kind of signage means that demand is strong. So, your chances of finding someone who needs some are high. All you have to do is to point out to them that their signage is looking a bit dated and offer to source some new ones for them.
You charge them a bit more than you will have to pay for the signs. Use the money they give you to order their new signage and pocket the difference. This is a form of dropshipping marketing.
An even easier way to run an online business is to become an affiliate for a company. Again, all you have to do is to find firms that need signage, or another product, and get them to order it via a website that you have set up. When they do, the fact that they have clicked your affiliate links in the process of placing that order will let the supplier know that order came via your sales effort. They will then pay you a percentage of that particular sale. It is a bit like a finder’s fee.
There are plenty of ways for you to learn about both of these simple ways of running a business while studying abroad. Everything can be done online, so you can use this simple business model while living anywhere in the world.
