Opening a business is a demanding mission. Launching a successful business demands a lot of your precious time, energy, motivation, undivided attention, and, most importantly, money.

That’s why the saying “you have to earn money to earn money” is so widely known. 

However, becoming a thriving business owner without drowning in debt is still possible. In this article, we’ll cover some unique ways to effectively monetize your up-and-coming business venture without spending a fortune. 

SDKs

Software development kits, known as SDKs, are pre-written samples of code that enable you to include additional features to your app or website.

There are many types of SDKs, from communication channels to e-commerce functionality. 

To make more money from your app or website, consider software development kits that provide monetization opportunities.

The Honeygain SDK, for example, allows you to earn more money from your app or business through bandwidth sharing.

If you integrate this SDK into your app (or website), your customers can consent to share their bandwidth while they use your app (or website). With this SDK, you’ll receive extra monetization via our public data-sharing

Bootstrapping

Bootstrapping is the old-age idea of funding your start-up from your wallet without borrowing money from your friends or family or taking out a loan.

Basically, you’d be using your funds to run your business. This money may come from personal savings, your regular income, low or no-interest credit cards, or mortgages and lines of credit on your home. 

Getting a free credit report card will help you assess where you financially stand. Knowing this will help you determine the interest rate on loans, which can give you access to affordable credit.

If you decide to bootstrap your business, you won’t become a millionaire overnight, but you’ll be sure you’re not taking any risks with debt and have built your own business from the ground up.

Subscriptions

Regular subscription services offer your customers a sense of exclusivity and promote loyalty, bringing you more money in the long run.

You can provide the possibility of subscriptions no matter what product you sell or what service you provide. 

These days, customers can order subscriptions from various businesses, from a streaming service or a VPN provider to a clothing store to a grocery vendor.

It can be a physical subscription, like a box of clothes delivered to your doorstep, or a monthly streaming subscription.

Take a look at what your business offers, whether that’s a range of products or services, and brainstorm ways to arrange a subscription model for your business.

Start with lower-price subscriptions, and if successful, slowly scale up your subscription service.

Trade Services

While your business gets off the ground, you’ll probably need some outside help. For example, you may need to design a logo, refurbish a store, figure out how corporate taxes work, or many other tasks that usually cost a lot of money.

Trade Services

If you’re lucky enough to have a network of skilled people around you, and you have one or two skills yourself, why not trade your services?

They can help you with what you need, and you use your skills to help them with something in return. 

In a world of many up-and-coming small businesses, you won’t have a problem finding a community of like-minded people willing to help each other with little to no cost. 

Shark Tank

Shark Tank, the American business reality television series spanning over fifteen seasons, is the dream of many entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners.

These people present their ideas in front of a panel of esteemed venture capitalists and ask for financial support for a percentage of the profits the business will make

The Shark Tank TV show has high standards for entry, including but not limited to being a U.S. citizen, having a spotless criminal record, having no association with the TV station that creates the show, and not having any intentions to run for a government office position a year after your episode would air on TV.

Despite these requirements, if your idea passes through their careful review process, you can anticipate success in one way or another.

Even if the venture capitalists (known as Sharks) declined to put money into your business, there’s a high likelihood that someone from the show’s audience will be interested in what you offer. This kind of international exposure is priceless!

Monetize Your Business

Whether you monetize your business through a pre-written code sample or a subscription service, you can use many strategies to make more money from your company. Be bold, experiment, and don’t be afraid to fail to improve!
