So, in the present article I’m gonna talk about five small businesses that you can begin at home that probably don’t run you much of anything. So, let’s focus on something relatively simple. One of many businesses you can begin from your home today at very little cost is just a consultancy. Nearly all of what you may need because of this boils down to having an intelligent phone and a computer. Possibly, a webcam. These may be items that you already have. At best, you could also require a headset of some kind. Possibly, a microphone.
These things aren’t super expensive and I’ll have links for recommendations to them in the description below since you can purchase those things, but this isn’t overwhelmingly difficult if you have knowledge in a particular area. For example, I actually do consulting for marketing, brand development, and obviously video marketing, and production along with creative services, and I’m in a position to charge relatively well because of this per client. Although, it’s not my primary at home business. I would say that my overwhelming, many my business comes from my graphic design services, which can be yet another thing you can certainly do at home. It doesn’t need to be restricted to graphic design. You certainly can do several creative things. You certainly can do graphic design. You certainly can do photography. They are service based creative businesses that you can certainly do at home, and all you have to accomplish is invest in whatever the equipment and skills are to execute on that, and market yourself well enough.
Whether that’s locally or online. So, I would say two businesses that you can begin from your home or you may begin a consultancy of some kind. Whether that’s marketing or tech-related, or you may do relationship consulting if that’s your skill set. You can start some kind of consultancy and do that. That might be one business you can begin at home, and then another might be considered a creative services profession like graphic design. Another business that you can begin from your home, believe it or not, is just a tech support based business. Tech is not entirely the same as consultancy because of the expertise it needs, and the amount of execution involved, and there’s a tad bit more nuance than detailed what to it.
So I would say that it’s different from consulting just because of how involved or ingrained it will get, and I would say that you’ll have a tech-based business from your home doing some very specific stuff, and that could involve doing things on the programming side. It could involve technical sport and customer service. It could involve help desk services, and there are a large amount of firms that hire people to do that from your home or that outsource to small businesses that that, and you may provide that service from home.
There’s obviously user testing and bug testing that one could do as a specialized person. So, I would say that that is actually a very lucrative business for you personally if you are in a predicament where maybe you’re a stay at home parent, maybe you’ve an introverted personality, or you’ve anxiety about being in public. This really is business that could permit you to overcome those barriers and still be very successful. So, the fourth business we’re gonna talk about is online writing and copy writing. You can be creating content for magazines and writing that stuff from home. You can be writing for online publications. You can be doing copy writing and advertising work for firms and companies while working remotely, and this may be very successful for you. In terms of that which you could easily get, you might get around $100 a write-up or it’s likely you have a rate that is founded on per word, and this may possibly not be restricted to writing. You certainly can do video and editorial work. You can be doing proof-reading. There exists a whole business model that one could build out just around writing and copy writing and content development for individuals, companies, and brands, and smaller firms, marketing companies, ad agencies, etc.
I think that this is actually a very lucrative business for you personally if you’re a stay at home person. It doesn’t require much investment either. You just require a computer and an intelligent phone for probably the most part and you’re good to go. There could be instances where maybe you need to use services like Dropbox. There’s lots of stuff that’s free. I will actually do a video on most of these free online services you can use to simply help your small business, and I’ll cover that in another video, actually. So, the fifth and final business we’re gonna talk about that you can begin from your home is you can begin e-commerce based business.
You certainly can do this by lots of different things. You certainly can do affiliate marketing where you’re selling other people’s products online with websites like Amazon or what’ve you. You can be selling products that it’s likely you have, on Ebay, used. There’s any number of things you may do. You can be setting up a DIY-based business where you’re selling your products through something such as Etsy.
So, doing a e-commerce business where selling products, if they be your own personal and other people’s is another great stay at home business that doesn’t demand a lot for you yourself to get started. If you’re doing the affiliate marketing side of that, again, probably the most you actually need there is a computer. You might need an internet site to assist you out with that. You might need to begin a blog of some kind. Obviously, a social media presence. These things aren’t very expensive, and in some instances they may be free. So, I would say that that’s a very good business in the first place, quite high potential profit margins, and very minimal investment.
