I've been reading the posts here for a bit and thought that some of you could help me with a major decision regarding my direction.
I have two online business ideas but I can't decide which one to pursue. I don't want to try both because I think that one has to give their all and focus on one thing in order to be successful. I know both will take quite a bit of marketing, especially with social media.
Also, I want to choose the best one that will provide me with a solid long term business.
Okay. Here are my choices...
1. Online Educational Consulting
Not to brag, but I have some pretty good credentials in the education field. I was thinking about doing some online/telephone/email consulting. I will be able to help parents help their child from kindergarten to high school with regards to getting better grades, behavior, social skills, parenting, and anything academic. I would also put up some Amazon affiliate links to educational books, games, apps, etc.
I like this ideas because I am an expert in this field and I can easily demonstrate that. The major drawback is that most of my income will have to be traded for my time (with the exception of some affiliate sales).
2. T Shirt Business
I currently have around 100 unique t shirt designs and can make many more. I was thinking about putting my designs on all the major online POD sites (Zazzle, Teespring, Spreadshirt, etc) and using those designs on all products (t shirts, mugs, hoodies, etc). I have an original brand already so I won't just be printing random t shirts.
I like this idea because there can be some passive income later on. It is also an asset. The major obstacle I see is that there is tons of competition. It might be hard to stand out.
So, if anyone has any insight that can help direct me I would appreciate it.
