If you spot a niche that hasn’t been filled to its potential just yet, and you can learn the coding skills (or know someone who already has them), you could be on to something with this side business idea. Today, it’s even possible to build an app without any coding skills whatsoever. Just make sure you validate your app idea before jumping too far in. Even if your app business idea doesn’t pan out to be a best-seller, you’ll still pick up valuable skills.

I’ve got two sites – one focused on personal finance/personal development and the other on resume writing for people in banking. Longer term, the former is likely to be monetized more through info products, while the latter through info products / services. I don’t think either lends themselves to making much on Amazom Affiliates, though I will try. But I’m trying to work out what would be the most “natural” ways to monetize at this time. Thanks.

When you phone to order something from a catalog or infomercial, a big office with rows of cubicles may come to mind. But the person on the other end of the line is likely to be sitting in a home office. “It’s a huge and growing industry,” Durst says of companies that hire independent contractors to take calls from home. She says the “home-shore movement” started in response to complaints about the many companies that looked offshore for workers.

Just be aware that the pay may be by the minute rather than by the hour, so you may not be paid for time you spend waiting by the phone. A list of companies that hire call center reps can be found at HomeWithTheKids.com.

Determine if your client is in the trade or business on a regular basis. Is your client babysitting once in awhile to bring in a little extra cash, or does your client have children that they take care of on a regular basis? Is your client holding themselves out to the public as a provider of services? If you feel the client is really participating in the business, then the Schedule C should report all the income and allowable deductions regardless of the impact on EITC. Those who baby sit on an occasional basis may have expenses related to the activity for food, diapers, etc.
Are you the one all your friends call when their sink is clogged or their roof is leaking? Are you looking to start your own business but not thrilled about having a brick-and-mortar location? A home improvement business might be just the small town business idea you’re looking for. When small towns lack a basic handyman, residents must book appointments days, if not weeks in advance to have a larger service visit their home. That’s not so convenient if your toilet has been clogged for three days. As long as you are qualified, have the experience, and know your way around a tool shed, starting a handyman business is fairly straightforward and requires little overhead.

Craigslist is not as ‘feature-rich’ as eBay but it’s easier and quicker to use. You don’t even have to “join” to list something for sale, however there are some advantages to “joining” including being able to keep track of your posts and repost your product’s ad. And best of all? It’s totally free.
One of the primary amenities that small towns tend to lack is decent shopping. And we don’t just mean a large shopping mall. Often, those living in smaller towns and communities have to drive significant mileage just for basic clothing necessities. That’s why starting a clothing boutique will not only put you on the map but will make you a popular destination for most residents in the vicinity. You’ll pretty much be the mall substitute for all things teen-related. Just make sure to stay up-to-date on the latest trends. But they’ll let you know if you don’t!

Many of my readers have started proofreading from their iPads, scanning legal documents for court reporters as a result of the Proofread Anywhere eCourse I recommend.

And ThunderCock… design isn’t just logo design. It’s brand development. Without it, there wouldn’t be major companies being recognized in their commercial standing in the world. IE. Nike, Microsoft, Apple, American Express, etc. Without brand identity, they would just be another company in the field with nothing noteworthy except the fine-print that the consumer will not read out-right . Brand identity combined with strategic marketing methods make for strong company understanding to the consumers. Without consumers, thees companies would be nothing.

Instead of a straight forward survey, one just seems to spawn countless other questionaires.
Now, before you go telling us that combining after school 12-year-olds and college 21-year-olds is a terrible idea, hear us out. We’re not suggesting a full on bar, simply a coffee shop that after 4 pm also serves wine and beer. The concept behind being a coffee shop that serves alcohol is that in the post-noon hours, coffee consumption begins to taper off significantly. If you’re looking to stay open later and need the cash, filling an additional need in your small community is the perfect business idea. Now you not only have a place for business meetings and freelancers, but also happy hours and first dates.
