Today, it is a challenge to generate a steady income flow as a Web worker. No matter if you are a freelancer who outsources for different clients abroad or an online business owner who sells his products and services, you will have some tough competition out there.
Things like marketing your services, doing your SEO and SMO right and networking are part and parcel of your business. How about offering services that are unique and creative? Make a business platform or service that no one else or very few people in the past have provided. Offer a service that people may not find anywhere else or a product that has very few competitions/challengers.
Sounds great, doesn’t it? But this isn’t as easy as it sounds. How do you think out-of-the-box? How can you pick one business that is rare and creative, yet helps your customers to make their lives easier?
Well, here are some suggestions you can try. These suggestions may also help you come up with other new ideas too.
