I need to start a business, with no cash. How should i start
You can begin by being an affiliate salesman/marketer. 1. You find a business you have passion for or a business that is lucrative, find someone who has the product and negotiate prices. 2. Advertise on social media, tell friends and family what you sell. 3. Get customers order, meet your "business partner" and pick the product and deliver to your client. Wooala!
Help people to market their products and get a commission on each sale. If not so, find a simple employment and save capital at a given time frame.
Be a middleman for a start, position yourself as a person who knows where to find specific things (in your line of business start up) eventually you will make the name in that line and make commission that will in turn help you get the required capital to move forward... It can be online or physical.
In addition to the answers you already have received, I want to suggest another alternative.
I believe there are things you know of, things you love so much and you have spent money and time and other resources learning, because of your deep passion for it.
Host a class on WhatsApp or Google Meet or Zoom. Get people's numbers. Be a consultant in that field. Get paid for it.
Build digital products around it, sell them.
Be a freelancer, get on Fiverr, UpWork.
There are a million and one ways to start business with zero cash.
Basically, if you can see a problem around you that you can solve, you can make and sell that solution and get paid for it.
Muga hi. I read your goal is to sell fishes. You could work part-time for somebody else in anything and apply that income to your business, acting as reseller - or intermediary under commission - to local seafood restaurants and fishmonger shops. Of course you will find new ways. In any case, you have to evaluate first your market and then to develop a business plan that will provide orientation toward your final objective(s).
Dear Muga Justus, If you are not selling goods, it is possible, If you are rendering services you need little or no money at all. You can be a middle man between traders and customers. It you create a website or social media (Instagram, Facebook or Whatsapp) platforms where you stand as the middle man between the products and the people that needs the products but you must know the market and know where to get it, work with logistics to deliver them. Get you pay
