There are many reasons somebody would want to work out of their own home. It could be they hate their boss, they are sick and tired of their job, or maybe they just want to spend more time with their family. Regardless of the reason, there are a ton of successful home based businesses ideas that can be started inexpensively, quickly, and without much marketing. Below you will find a couple of them, but there are many others such as brochure printing, post card printing, printing services, or business card printing. Also, please do not be afraid to come up with your own ideas, since they usually are the ones that will provide you the greatest income potential.
Pet Sitting and Dog Walking
Many people do not like to leave their pets at home all alone, because they think they will be lonely. This is a very easy home based business to start, and can be quite lucrative if you have a fenced in backyard, with either a patio or trees that can provide shade for the pets during the day.
All you need to do to get it going is to start handing out flyers in the neighborhood. You can charge as little as $30 a week, and after you have 10 pets that you are looking after, you will be making $300 a week for doing virtually the same thing as you were doing previously, which was either nothing, or watching TV.
On those same flyers you can advertise morning and evening dog walks. Some people are just too lazy to do it on a regular basis, and others simply do not have the time. It is pretty easy to make anywhere between $100 to $200 a week supplying this type of service.
Selling Products on eBay
This one is a little more tricky than the first one we mentioned, but it has far greater income potential. eBay is the world’s most popular online auction website. Literally millions upon millions of people go there each and every day hoping to buy something. This is great for you, because you have access to a very large market who in most cases, have already pulled out their credit card and have purchased an item from them already.
The problem is that virtually anything that can be sold on the internet is already being sold there. But, do not let that deter you, because we are going to tell you how to find products that you can make good money with on eBay. What you want to do is to find items that are made or produced in your specific geographic location, that are not available anywhere else.
An example of this would be a person living in Wisconsin, where a tremendous amount of small independent gourmet cheese manufacturers are located. These types of products are rarely sold outside of this region of the country, and should be big sellers on eBay.
Above, I mention only two easy to start home based business ideas that could be very profitable, if you were to implement them effectively. There are many more, so please do not be afraid to come up with your own concepts, and once you do, take immediate action getting them off of the ground.
