1. Start a gift baskets business ($24K/year)

Valentina from Brantford, ON, Canada started Really Luxe about 1 year ago, a gift baskets business.

  • Revenue: $2,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: Brantford, ON, Canada

I worked as a Sales Associate for a well-known gift shop. I loved working for the company and was very passionate and believed in the company's culture and image.

The best part of the job was helping customers choose the perfect gift, suggest engraving messages and design ideas, and organizing inventory. I worked alongside awesome and amazing people! This was the first time I actually found a job that I truly was passionate about.

After the company closed down, I was very broken-hearted. This was the time when I also realized that I loved working with people, gift wrapping, and being able to use my creative talents and skills. Since I got laid off, due to company closure, this was the perfect time on reflecting where I would like to be professionally in my life.

2. Start a gift store ($96K/year)

Tiffany Reimer from Fresno, California, USA started Passport 4 Change almost 8 years ago, a gift store.

  • Revenue: $8,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 2
  • Location: Fresno, California, USA

I've loved coins from around the world since I was a little girl. My dad was in the Air Force and he had coins from around the world including Taiwan, the Philippines and other places. These simple coins were magical entries into a much greater world. That probably greatly influenced me and put me on my current world-traveling path.

So when my niece didn't think about a greater world, I knew I needed to help her and other children expand their horizon.

My idea turned out to be a great success so I built a website and started selling my educational (and fun!) tooth fairy kits. I offer different kit options that I named the Business Class kit and my biggest seller, the 1st Class kit.

3. Start a meme-based product ($162K/year)

James Reina + Davis Harari from New York, USA started The Nut Button over 4 years ago, a meme-based product.

  • Revenue: $13,500/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: New York, USA

Davis:

I thought of this product while interning before my senior year of college. I was in a meme group chat with some friends - and everyone thought the nut meme was hysterical.

And for some real world inspiration, give Jerry Low's story on creating WebRevenue a read:

Hi, I’m Jerry Low, and I’ve been in the Affiliate Marketing and SEO consultancy business since 2004. I own and operate several websites with a small team, including WebHostingSecretRevealed, HostScore, and HideandSeek. Together, they attract over 700,000 visitors each month.

Affiliate Marketing - estimated to have the size of $17 trillion by 2026, often sees highs and lows depending on what products you sell. I’ve had months where revenue reaches the six-figure level and occasions when I barely make a few hundred.

One of our sites gets close to 4 million sessions and 6 million pageviews in 1H 2021
