In this article, I thought of sharing my actual and personal experience building a home based business in Malaysia.
What prompted me to write this article?
It started when I went on Google and did a search for the term “home based business opportunities Malaysia“. You can see the screen capture of the search results above.
The search results presented are mainly lists of home based business opportunity available in Malaysia.
If you are a stay at home mother or a stay at home father looking to start a home business, the lists above do not offer much help.
What is more useful is focusing on one or two home business ideas and the step by step instruction on how to make it work.
Proven home based business idea
In this section, I will share my home based business which I’ve started back in March 2018.
The business model that I used is a combination of dropshipping and online marketing.
Yes, these are not new ideas.
The above business model is not new, nonetheless it is working for me.
Dropshipping or Business to Consumer (B2C) business has been proven to be a big and sustainable business model. In a quote published in Focus Malaysia:
THE direct selling industry in Malaysia is booming amid the COVID-19 pandemic. As of September 2020, the industry hit sales of RM17.8 bil, exceeding the RM17 bil of sales recorded in 2019 and is on track to achieve the RM20 bil sales target this year.
The fact is B2C is a big business in Malaysia.
What I am sharing below is how me and my husband made it work for our home business.
Choosing the right business partner
Which B2C company that we decided to partner with?
Choosing the right business partner for your business is already half way to success.
The company that we partner with is BE International located at Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur.
The reason we’ve decided to partner with BE International is because of its Vision.
Below is BE International Vision Statement.
“We strive to create wellness in every way, for everyone”.
Wellness is defined as a feeling of liberation that brings about health, peace, prosperity, contentment and happiness.
In every way encompasses all aspects of life – physical, mental, spiritual, economic, financial, familial and social.
For everyone means the company’s doors are open to any individual regardless of race, colour, creed, background or belief.
The above Vision Statement is the company’s DNA.
Everything that the company did in the past, present and in the future is to create wellness in every way and for everyone.
We believe in the company’s Vision and that is why me and my husband partnered with BE International.
You can learn more about the company Vision Statement here.
The core product
For our home business, we built it by focusing on only 1 core product which is the Aulora Pants with Kodenshi.
The Aulora Pants is BE International top selling product which is imported from Japan and has won numerous awards in Malaysia.
Lead generation strategy
Having the right business partner with a hot selling product means nothing if you are unable to generate leads for your business.
I believe this is where many people failed in running their own home based business.
How me and my husband successfully generated leads for our home business is through internet marketing specifically via blogging.
Again, what we did is nothing new.
What we did was focus on producing consistent and high quality content from our blogging effort.
When you produce good content consistently, you will be rewarded with organic traffic from Google.
We will then communicate with our site visitors using WhatsApp to answer their questions.
Those that are keen to purchase the product only, we will help them to register a member account with BE International.
They can then use the company app to order product from their smartphone.
When their order has been confirmed, the company will deliver to their door step free of charge.
What I’ve explained above is how the drop shipping business model works.
For those that are interested to use BE business platform to build their own home business for side income, we will teach them our internet marketing and blogging method.
