Low Investment Business Ideas That Are High On Success
My Random List
I got to thinking the other day when a close friend rang to ask if I could help with brainstorming a few low investment business ideas that my friend could try out to make some needed cash for the holidays. After we hung up from our half and hour call, I realized what I randomly came up with might not be a bad idea to share here. Looking for a low investment business?
Every now and then we all need something to follow or be inspired by to do other things. I hope this random yet simple modified list can help you to brainstorm your own cash-generating business ideas in no time.
Are you naturally good at a hobby that you are also passionate about? How about Pottery or Leather-making or Paper Art or Skateboarding or Special Cooking Recipes? If you are good at doing or making some kind of hobby, craft or sport, then you can be sure there are others who are just as passionate and want to learn to do what you are good at! How about turning your favorite passion into a business service?
With all the free tools (WordPress, Weebly) and courses (free HTML courses) available on the net today it’s not hard to build a quick website or blog for yourself and be in a position where you know more than the average small business owner. If you have a knack for website building, this could be a quick revenue generator by offering simple websites and blogs to small businesses in your area. Why not?
If design is your strength you can quickly whip up a something by looking at what other great websites look like. Many small business owners just don’t know how to start at this design stage of website development and would gladly pay someone just to draw up a few templates or designs for them to take to their developer.
Another way is to pay to outsource your website service to someone who is web savvy and then on sell the finished product to your market. There are many outsource sites such as Elance, Odesk, and Mechanical Turk you can take your business to, to get the work you need done far quicker than you can!
House and Office Cleaning
Most home dwellers generally hate to do their own cleaning, and businesses are just too busy to tidy up to keep their presentation up to par for their visiting clients. This problem can be an advantage for you by creating a service to fill this need. It’s true isn’t it? There is money in dirt?
If you have a good background or expertise in any aspect of business knowledge or business service, you need to know that there are others who will be willing to pay you to know what you know. It will only require you to begin contacting a few businesses and contacts in your niche within your area.
Do you have flair for putting together an event or party? Do you thrive in the hectic stress of managing people, bringing resources together, and contacting services? If you do, and if you have successfully organized other events (no matter how small they are) then you should know that many SMEs (small to medium size enterprises) that regularly hold conferences, business events, and celebration nights throughout the year would gladly hand the event or function to someone who can take over to manage the fiddly details of event planning. If you can do an event, can you do a wedding?
Wedding planning is big business. Once you’ve managed one for a client the word of mouth effect goes into play. It’s a great industry where one good service can keep you booked for years to come. Keep in mind that this is an industry that will require you to know something about wedding needs such as wedding dresses, dresses for the bridesmaids, popular in season colors, floral services, venues, wedding bands etc. If you planned your own wedding, could you do one for others?
There is a constant need for copywriting services, content creation, article writing, brochure creation, website content, proofreading for solo business owners and SME owners. Could you make a few calls to the local SMEs, perhaps run an ad, or business network to find out? It might be worth it.
Dog Walking Service
You would be glad to know that dog walking is a legitimate service and is becoming very popular with busy couples or busy executives who own dogs and other pets. What about people who go away on holidays? This industry booms during the holiday seasons such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, and annual holidays. Pet lovers would pay well just to know that their pets are being cared for and fed.
You can coach or tutor by offering tuition lessons for students at their homes, schools or an agreed place. If you have natural talents in any particular subject in school or have university degree in a specialty you can teach it! You didn’t think that those boring Geometry classes you endured could one day turn into a cash idea for you?
The above is just a random list of low investment business ideas. Please seek the advice of an advisor or accountant prior to trying out any of the ideas listed here. It helped my friend create some needed cash, I hope you do! Could your next idea be your first profitable part time business?
