Home Business Ideas

Home business ideas range from setting up your own business to affiliate marketing.  Listed on this page are a few of the businesses I am involved with and a few I felt were a great choice for here. 

Most of the opportunities listed, OW has an affiliate agreement with. You will be working directly under me. A brief synopsis is offered with each link.

Please note that each website does have its own rules about cookies, content, etc. Please read OW’s Terms & Conditions for further information.

Home Based Business: What is it?

A home based business is any business opportunity that is set up in your home, whether or not it is from your kitchen or coffee table. Work from home business opportunities include multilevel marketing, affiliate programs, and similar structure opportunities..

 

Work from Home Opportunities

Work from home opportunities include your own business.  Companies that offer customer service via phone or web service, and other similar jobs hire people to work at home. Some companies are seeking telecommuters, meaning you spend time in their office, but primarily work at home. You may be considered an employee or an independent contractor. As an independent contractor you pay all taxes.

Work from home includes businesses you set up for yourself and use a portion of your home as an office, base of operations.  This can include, but is not limited to:  cleaning, administrative, bookkeeping, writing, website development, marketing, social media management/marketing, and many more.

Affiliate Programs Defined

Affiliate programs offer an income incentive for you to sell their products either from your own web site, blog, or social media sites. Many name brand companies utilize affiliate marketing to reach a larger audience and increase revenue. Some are structured like multi-level marketing. You have a choice to bring in more affiliates or market the product alone.

Home Business Ideas

You may not want to join a company, or any organization marketing someone else’s products or services. Perhaps you would rather market your own.

A few ideas are listed here:

  • Cleaning services: business and residential
    • Real estate, small offices, can use a reasonably prices cleaner
  • Dog Walker, Pet sitter
    • People working from home now full time could use someone to come walk their dog, mind their pets while they work.
  • Sewing, mending, ironing
    • Not as great a chore as it once was, but there are those who could benefit from someone offering to mend their favorite shirt, blouse, pants, shorts, etc.
    • Not everything is permanent press and many do not remain that way.
  • Yard Work, Gardening
  • Childcare is also a viable service, even these days.
    • Take the children to the park for an hour or two, give the stay at home parents a break. Fix lunch, have a picnic.
  • Virtual Assistant specializing in a particular service
