When I talk about micro-startup it means something you can do without leaving your present job and working parallelly to gain an extra income.

Sometimes we all want to gain an extra buck and today I am going to share some of my experiences on 5 simple ways to start a profitable micro-startup.

1. Make your current skills work to start a business.

Using the most important skills you already have, you can start your own micro-business. Creating content, developing a product, and more are just a few ways you can launch your business.

Let me share one of my experiences my friend is a copywriter at a marketing agency, who can create a blog about his interest in marketing. By using his skills he can create content that will gain more audience, generate leads, and eventually, he can grow his business.

2. Connect with your existing contacts

Follow your connections to get valuable advice and resources, which you can use in your endeavors. Make no mistake - utilizing your existing resources of connections and knowledge will be an invaluable asset to your future success. Don't think that starting things up will make you feel unprepared or liable for failures your connections will help you insulate the structure and ensure a smooth process.

I used my existing contacts and ended up speaking with a friend who was a web developer. We had a good laugh catching up and reminiscing about our time in school together while also addressing my website needs. With his help, I was able to launch the website and quickly build a successful customer base.

3. Network with others in your industry.

Networking is an essential component of starting any successful micro-startup, and the best way to do it is to make connections with like-minded individuals in your industry. By attending events, participating in discussion forums, and utilizing social media to connect with others, you can expand your reach and create mutually beneficial relationships that can help you get your business off the ground

I went to the event feeling excited and ready to connect with people in my field. After two months of networking, I was so comfortable around everyone that when they asked me to present on a business topic, I accidentally blurted out an in-depth analysis of affiliate marketing instead! Everyone thought it was hilarious and applauded my level of knowledge.

4. Use online resources to ease your business.

With the correct tools and resources, it's easy to turn your business into a successful and profitable venture without having to quit your job. Use online marketplaces like Shopify to create your own online store, or use platforms like Upwork to get freelancers or outsource your business's tasks. If you're ready to make your move, these online resource is a great place to start!

I used to have a custom eCommerce website and was barely making any money. After learning about Shopify, I decided to give it a try - and my returns skyrocketed! This success motivated me to take up a hobby, and into full-time work!

5. Use micro-financing to get started.

It may be the solution to your problem if you're seeking small funding. This helpful way gives you access to capital and manages a peaceful cash flow for your micro-startup. It's a great start to a rewarding small business endeavor, without the full price of initial risk. With micro-financing, you can operate your company on your own terms and remain profitable.

I hope these tips help you get started on your micro-startup journey.
