As I’m venturing into becoming an indie marketer, I’m exploring all the possible businesses that I can start, scale and flip as a single-person business.
I have 6 years of experience in servicing clients and running a design agency. The bottleneck in my agency is the human resources.
My entire business depends that I have ample human resources to deliver the work I’m accepting from my clients. There is only a finite number of hours in the day and a human can only be productive finite numbers of hours in that day. Thus, my business has limited distribution.
Similarly, for people who run eCommerce businesses, shipping physical products have finite distribution. They need to manage their finite inventory, either manufacturing the product themselves or getting it from a supplier.
There are better businesses
There are better business models out there that have unlimited distribution.
You can create a video, upload it on YouTube and that video can be distributed (read; watched) unlimited times by the user without you ever working on that video again.
You can create a pack of wallpapers, upload it on a website like Gumroad or Etsy and that pack of wallpaper can be distributed (read: downloaded) unlimited times without you ever updating it.
I have finalized 3 businesses that I will be working on this year. All 3 are completely digital with completely different business models. All 3 of them have one thing in common; unlimited distribution.
Before 2020, all I could think of for becoming an indie marketer was Shopify dropshipping or Amazon FBA.
Shopify dropshipping has limited control of catering the service or experience you can provide to your end consumer.
Amazon FBA has a vicious cycle of always maintaining an inventory in order to stay in business.
I’m excited that I have figured that I want to get into unlimited distribution businesses as an indie marketer.
I’ll be sharing details about the 3 businesses that I have finalized in upcoming posts.
