Default Want To Start Side Business, Not Sure What Though


I have been thinking of starting a business that at the beginning I can do whilst I am at work (I have a lot of spare time)

So far I only have a few ideas and I am not sure how good they are

1. Web Development

I am good at making websites etc so I thought why not do it as a business however there is a lot of competition and I am not sure how I would get my name out there

2. Online Service
I have an idea for an online service, where people pay a on off fee in order to sell a particular product on my website. Again not sure about this as I would have a direct competitor so it would be hard to compete against them, also not sure how I would market the service at the beginning.

3. Making my own body butters/creams
I would be interested in doing something where I am using natural ingredients, jarring it and selling it. Again this is also a saturated market, so would be hard to stand out in it

What does everyone think about these ideas?

Does anyone have any other good ideas? This is something I have wanted to do for sometime however I just feel as my ideas are just never good enough

Thank you
