Are you thinking about starting a home-based business?
It’s time to stop daydreaming about your plans, take hold of your future and realize that dream, right now!
And the good thing is, there are some great ideas out there to take advantage of. The following are home-based business ideas that do not require extensive background training,
education, or startup money.
- What you will need is:
- Strong Determination.
- High Motivation.
- Hard Work.
Let’s get started with the our list.
That’s right! Teach a course at your local community center, college, or maybe consider setting up a workshop in your home. Everybody has something they’re an expert at. Put that expertise in fly fishing, golf, sewing, cooking, or writing to work on an exciting new business!
Contact your local community paper and offer to write weekly articles on subjects you are familiar with. Put your skills to good use in a setting where they’re needed. Herbalists could dispense health advice. Editors love a fresh voice, and nothing ever comes out of the oven more fresh than authentic advice.
Contact local businesses and offer to write ads for them. An eye-catching advertorial can bring products or services to the masses, and a smart business will take advantage of this. Small businesses especially may not be adept at writing ad content and may be more likely to need the services of a good copywriter.
4. Tour Guide
If you live in a historic area with many interesting tourist spots, you may already be missing out on a great business idea. Consider starting a walking tour operation. You can literally do this with information you find on Wikipedia. Then, offer unusual historical tidbits guests would not get from a regular tour guide.
5. Secret Shopper
Secret shopping is a solid part-time business operation for stay-at-home moms, students, retirees, and anyone looking to make some extra income. It’s simple to get into this business and you can work the hours you want.
Basically, you’ll be observing designated businesses and how
they treat their consumers. You’ll compile your findings into a written report, which you’ll be submitting to your company’s district headquarters via email or regular mail.
6. “Hey Mr DJ”
Like music? Who doesn’t? Gather together current hit
music CDs or a decent enough Spotify list, and offer your services to DJ at different events. Birthday parties, graduations, anniversaries, and family
reunions are all great opportunities.
Pick a genre from Classic Rock to Seventies Hits, Pop, or Hip-Hop and get to work!
7. “Survey Says”
Taking fun online surveys is a great way to make a little extra income. Thousands of people join this elite group of home-based workers every day. Many of these companies
pay survey takers anywhere from $5 to $100 for their
opinions on various products or services.
The trick is doing research so you know which companies pay well and promptly. There is still time to get into this business
while the market is still young.
8. Hot Information
Information is easily the hottest-selling commodity anywhere on the Internet. So why not write an informative ebook on a popular topic that you have special knowledge on? The value of this kind of information is easy to underestimate, but more people are becoming self-published authors every year.
Publish and sell your ebook online. Visit my website and

9. Build It
Offer to build a one or two-page website for local business owners to advertise their services. With the use of basic HTML and CSS or one of several website builder services, you can easily get the hang of it.
Offer to build and submit sites to search engines, then charge a fee slightly lower than your competitors to pique a client’s interest.
All you need is a computer with an Internet connection and you’re legitimately in business. There are many businesses out there who would pay good money for specialized legal or medical information. A lot of this information is available online for no money whatsoever and if you can identify a gap in the market, you can dominate this venture in many unexpected ways.
