    Hello, I am living in one of baltic states and searching for offline/online ideas which I could implement here. People here aren't very rich. The average wage is about 400$/month. My budget also isn't very big ~2000$, but my first goal is to double it. This isn't one of those threads were newbies are pleasing for help, I just thought that maybe some members of bhw can suggest me some ideas and niches which maybe are saturated in countries like USA, Germany, France and etc.., but probably could work in baltic states :)

    I'd target the bigger companies then instead of the small businesses as although the general public might not be very wealthy, they make much more $.

    I'd probably practice with pitching a mid-size company something first though to gain some experience and then with your confident, hit up a much larger one. Not sure what your skillset is though.

    Try to target high income businesses that you know some of their client base are most likely using the internet such as lawyers, engineering firms, NGOs that have international partners, ...

    Good luck

    I live in a country same like yours.
    From my experience developing websites for small and mid size business can be very lucrative.
    Just don't aim for a very high price, you can aim from $299 - $599
    Find two or three good sources to advertise your services and I think that you can make more then the double of your money...
    Cheers

    Hey OP,
    I do approach offline business owners and offer them to take their business online , most of the local business owners in my city don't have online estores,
    With some cool OpenCart themes and some effort it is easy to develop E-Stores for local business and there isn't much competition too.

    You can start by offering 2-3 Free setups and get your service noticed.

    Companies that are looking for international business would be my first thought,
    Then I would research what people are searching for locally.
    Without knowing the demographics it would be hard to suggest a solution.
    You would need to do your homework on the current market and look at where
    they are looking to gain busines from before you can target that market.
