Four business ideas
Marketing for Business
Budapest has a wide range of businesses of different types: restaurants, yoga studios, web design companies, and more. Many of these businesses are small and run by foreigners who may not have a lot of experience with marketing. As a digital nomad with marketing experience, you could offer your services to help these businesses reach a wider audience. You could start by writing a blog post about the top five yoga studios in Budapest or creating an Instagram campaign for a new restaurant.
Building a website for leads by using SEO
You can build a website for yourself that aims to sell leads to business owners.
I will explain with the help of an example.
From the keyword research that I did, you can see that there are a lot of searches for the hobby “yoga” in Budapest in a month.
There have been 3,430 searches for yoga in Budapest and these are just the top keywords – and the list goes on.
You can build a yoga site that provides information about yoga, how to do yoga in Budapest, etc… after that, do an SEO job for your site and try to rank on google with the relevant keywords. for example: “yoga inside Budapest”
After your site appears in the relevant keywords for yoga in Budapest on the first pages of Google and traffic comes to your site – You can add a contact form on the site in the style of “Hey, are you interested in yoga classes in Budapest? Fill out the contact form and we will get back to you”
Once a person fills in his details in the form he becomes a lead. a lead that we can sell to yoga institutes, yoga instructors, etc…
With a little creativity, you can think of any business that you can apply the idea to and then check if there are search volumes and low competition for that business using tools like Ahrefs, ubersuggest (Premium tools)
Start a Coworking Space
If you’re looking for a more hands-on business opportunity, you could start your own coworking space in Budapest. There is a growing demand for coworking spaces as more and more digital nomads are coming to the city. By starting your own space, you could create a community for other entrepreneurs and help them to be productive and successful.
Creating and selling products
On my journey, I met an interesting guy named Carlo from Mexico.
About 7 years ago Carlo came to Budapest and found an opportunity.
He realized that the cost of production in factories in Budapest is very low. He contacted a factory that produces whiskey (good whiskey) and rebranded it under its own brand.
The rest is history. Today, Carlo has a successful business and sells his products all over the world. He started with just one product and today he has a whole range of different products.
Check out Carlo brand:
You could create your own physical products to sell online or in shops in Budapest. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit and are willing to invest some time and money, this could be a great opportunity for you.
Budapest is a great city for entrepreneurs and digital nomads. There are many coworking spaces and cafes with good wifi available, the city is relatively safe and has a good infrastructure, and there are several programs and events specifically for digital nomads in Budapest. If you’re looking for a business opportunity, there are several options available to you. With a little creativity, you can find an opportunity that suits your skills and interests.
