    I really want to get some business started online, I know SEO and i can also outsource most of the services but there are plenty agencies that operate in my area etc.

    So i want to start something else can be operated fully online. Any ideas?

    Plenty of agencies operate in almost every area, you're simply justifying inaction. I would caution against your apparent logic that you should 'outsource' SEO services from the get go and still be successful/provide a good service, for any potential customer's sake.

    P.S - You're on a forum that is a metaphoric gold mine of ideas, a thread asking for them isn't necessary.

    I'm thinking of doing some dropshipping of products from China but there's two things that have me concerned.

    1) The packaging, will have Chinese labels and probably state from the Chinese company like "Aliexpress" and then customers would go there and see the low prices

    2) shipping times, if I sell locally it will take 15-60 days to arrive. I know because I've bought plenty times for myself from there...

    Dropshipping isn't that cool, to be honest.There are local businesses in your area right now that can be benefited from online marketing. Why don't you explore how you can help them? Best of all, think about coming up with a product of your own. If you don't own a product, you need to keep moving from one business to another.

    I know but many of these businesses don't want to pay or believe in SEO. It's mostly the very large corporations that have some agency helping them. The rest don't care about it..

    Something you're doing is broken, that couldn't be further from the truth. Type in 'plumber [your area]', 'accountant [your area]'....you see those websites? Chances are, people are paying. Just get out there and sell to them but use your grey matter to come up with novel propositions or ways of meeting them...hustle, some people have it, some people don't.

    Go freelance then, work for yourself.

    The agencies have overheads you do not, they have to charge $500-1000 a day or they cannot afford to stay open as they could not pay for their office, staff, tax, utilities....

    My office spent £1200 last year on printer ink for fucks sake.

    Go freelance, work from home and charge $350 a day... that's still lots for you and you're earning more than a cheap agency after overheads are covered as you can work from home and stuff. It means you're also operating in a different market, there are lots of very good small businesses which are a dream to deal with (less decision makers) who don't want to deal with an agency, they want a personal touch.

    The only reason you want an online business is because you are too lazy to do anything real. Offline businesses are a goldmine, thats why for every online business there is 500 offline ones. Get off your chair and head to town, introduce yourself to a few business owners and leave a card. Attend breakfast meets, join your chamber of commerce, spend an hour on linked in everyday finding people in your area...

    If you can find 200 billable days a year at just $300 its $60,000 a year and that's very conservative (you can charge more, and you're only working 4 days a week with those numbers)

    Not many people are earning that much with an on line business.

    If you actually knew SEO, you would not need to ask this question.

    Just wondering with the SEO services, would you put the price for each package OR something like "request a quote" under each package?

    i want to add services that will be not only local but international too, so if i use my currency then other countries wont understand.

    There are many businesses you can do online, and that can be done online only too. This is what this BHW shows and hence you should follow journey threads.
