 I want to thank you for coming to read my advice here on this page about the coolest ideas for starting up a small home business or online business of your own from home.

Introduction first – so you are forewarned

This is going to be a long document so I will break it up into smaller sections so you can scan or skip through it as you see fit. All the way through this I will be advising those of you who are serious about actually starting up a business to contact me for advice. I have a lot of free reports that will go a long way towards getting your business up and running. I mentor and set up complete businesses for a few chosen clients. But all this needs to start at a point somewhere, so I would love it if you kept reading for some great online business advice.

The five most popular Online Home Business Ideas

From my six years of experience of helping people start up small home businesses, I have found that the following groups or types of businesses are the most popular. They are not popular for no reason – you see they all have  products or services that are in massive demand and people will buy from those businesses that they see, like, trust and have found the quickest.

They are not popular for no reason – you see they all have  products or services that are in massive demand and people will buy from those businesses that they see, like, trust and have found the quickest.

Services – This is the most common business and could be a local business or an international business. The services are the obvious stuff like – bookkeeping, SEO, accountants, therapists, caregivers, software experts and a lot more

Local business – here you have a massive section that Google loves to promote and those that do this the right way will be busy within a few short weeks of starting up their business. This is not only the list above but other businesses like landscapers, dog walkers, grooming parlours, hairdressers, dressmakers and hundreds more. Done right, this business model is easy to set up and will be an instant success. The only negative – in my mind is that you still have to do the work once people contact you. IE 30 calls a day to your hairdresser is cool, but you only get paid once you have actually cut their hair.

Affiliate marketing – a lot of people shy away from this term thinking it has some sort of spammy connotation to it, but while there are fools spamming out there if you do this business model correctly you will be able to retire in a few months. If you like look upon this method as commission only sales. BUT with a massive twist – you just need to build a website that is found by those who are searching for that product, after that you do not actually sell anything, you send those people to others who sell for you. Cool huh?

Blogging – Blogging is a term people like to use and it really just means a website that is niche orientated that is updated regularly. Now, I didn’t want to shock you here, but 90% of the other business models are the same as a blog. A website that is niche orientated etc. However, people tend to understand the concept of blogging easier. Plus a lot of blogging does not actually have a product – big busy blogs are the sort of business where your income comes from the amount of traffic to your website. You then have paid advertising etc. A great business model

Training – One of my favorites, but then I guess that you can see that – here I am sort of training you on how to start a business from your home. Starting a training business is easy if you have a knack for sharing skills that you already have. Everybody is good at something – and a training business is really just a few PDF’s and some videos where you teach others that skill that you have. You could add dozens of smaller products along the way – and get very rich with this method over time. One aspect of starting up a business like this is that over time you become the authority in your niche and people seek you out for advice. Technically speaking there is another huge way that a lot of people are making a living online with – but it is generally not a small business per say. That is writing – thousands of people are writing books every day and getting a lovely residual income from places like Amazon Kindle. Ask me for more details on this one.

Starting You Own Business Checklist

Do your new businesses research in this order.

If you already have a business and need my advice on lead generation or another topic you will need to contact me to see how we can modify this list to suit your needs.

Niche brainstorming and niche research This will determine what your business will be about and pre-prove that it will be profitable (duh! With the usual disclaimers)

Keyword research – this will drill down to the exact buyer keywords and then the general interest keywords that your business or website will be built upon. Do this right and your business will be full of interested buyers

Product – at this point you will need to know your product and how you plan to present it to your visitors.

Website – you need to build this in a perfect manner. Silo style, WordPress, internal linking, super pages and more. Or you can just have a few carefully done pages and pay for traffic to your business. Both methods work very well.

Daily running of the site – here you will be doing social stuff, taking and processing orders and generally adding valuable content to your website

Well at this point I plan to write a few small chapters here below that cover a lot of the commonly asked questions relating to starting up a small business

First common question – starting your own business – ideas

Your skills, your hobbies and generally anything that could be fun to do as a business. Do not skimp in this research here. There are so many thousands of ideas that you can find for a business – here are a few examples

Business Opportunities

 

Catering Business – A very popular business to start, can be a local business or you could have a membership business teaching other caterers how to do it

Personal training Business – A popular local business and your keywords would always have the town and suburbs where you operate within. But another niche that could go international with training etc

Website business – This is one of my business streams, but I tend to do less these days as I get busier on bigger projects. Many ways to do this, locally, SEO business, marketing business, content creation business etc.

Bookkeeping Business – Very local business, you need great website design, with perfect keywords. Then you cosy up to Google and they will send you so much business you will be shocked.

Event planning Business – popular worldwide. You will be a local business, but more for your city than your local suburb

Landscaping Business – Very local search results business here. You could go bigger internationally by selling your skills with training

Graphic design Business – Quite a wide niche – I would suggest that you target a section or sub-niche: like business cards or logos. Do not try them all from day one. Very competitive but not a problem if you build your website correctly – silo, WordPress etc.

Clothing business – This could be many types, niche specific like wedding dresses, or retail, or drop shipping etc. If it is your thing – email me for more help

Jewelry Business – Same as above as there are so many different ways that you could go within this niche

Interior design Business – Strangely enough this one is hard to find decent keywords. I suggest a website that is so powerful from an impact point of view that your business will have that wow factor. Then I suggest targeted posts – like on FaceBook. IE brand building.

Construction Business – A very nice one to target. Depending upon your country easy to do, South Africa, where I live, this one is easy to beat. I am not sure about other countries. Sub-niches in this industry could be hard in some places – Like Roofing in Toronto.

Tutoring Business – This is almost so vague it is like saying food or diets. This one could go in any direction

Dog walking Business – This one amuses me. I feel that even in the big cities you are very restricted in growth potential. However, I would still back that dog lover who wants to do this one. I would just ask over and over again – Why?

T-shirt Business – So popular right now. I would question your motivation here, so call me on this one

Cake Business – This is like the catering one, could go anywhere but is nice and niche specific and a popular business because of the demand.

Retail Business – OK, this would depend upon what you mean by retail… A store? Or a drop shipping site? Or an Amazon affiliate site, or the Amazon fulfilment program. This one is competitive – but very profitable when done the right way. I am talking Millions!

Computer repair Business – This is like the dog walking one – as it is so competitive with other retails stores and big shopping sites. But worth looking into if this is your passion.

Web design Business – In a way, you are here on my “web design” business page, and I got to tell you that you will be competing with a lot of low priced idiots and the normal new client does not know the difference, and very often goes on price and gets such rubbish. Then the next web guy to contact them gets shot down as being part of a crooked industry. But who is the fool here? Go figure LOL Sad actually. Beware of cheap rubbish.

Wedding planning Business – A brilliant business and very busy from a client point of view. People spend a lot on their weddings. So the entire wedding business niche is huge. You can niche down to as small as antique wedding dresses and still get rich

Electrical Business – A lot of electricians think they do not need a decent lead generating website, so this one can be easy in some cities. Wipe out your old school sparky easily here.

Painting Business – see above Fashion Business – so huge and you could niche down to a very targeted buyer, like prom dresses for plus sized ladies etc. Nice work if you like this sort of thing LOL remember I am male

Tax Business – Dirty word, but a necessary evil and a very nice local business niche

Cupcake Business – a niche within the catering or cake business ideas

Cafe Business – This would depend upon your definition. But generally, this would be a store and entertainment. So a local business and easy to market just needs effort and time.

Day-care Business – Nice local business and generally easy to dominate

Restaurant Business – see Cafe above. Plus remember this is a very social business

Accounting Business – Local business and easy to dominate in some cities

Plumbing Business – see painting and electrical above for this business idea

Childcare Business – see day-care business idea above

Trucking Business – this one would need a lot of research and how you tackle it would depend heavily on your businesses marketing budget. This business is dominated by a well-established word of mouth and buddy system in some countries.
