5 Small Businesses You Can Start at Home

5 Small Businesses You Can Start at Home

– Hey everybody, this is Roberto
Blake of robertoblake.com, helping you create
something awesome today. So, in today’s video I’m
gonna talk about five small business that you can start at home that probably don’t cost
you much of anything. So, let’s start with
something relatively simple. One of the businesses you can start from home today at almost
no cost is a consultancy. Most of what you’ll need for this comes down to having a
smart phone and a computer. Possibly, a webcam. These might be things
that you already have. At best, you might also
need 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 buy those things, but this isn’t overwhelmingly difficult if you have knowledge in a specific area. For example, I do
consulting for marketing, brand development, and
obviously video marketing, and production as well
as creative services, and I’m able to charge relatively
well for this per client. Although, it is not my
primary at home business. I would say that my overwhelming, the majority of my business comes from my graphic design services, which is another thing you can do at home. It doesn’t have to be
limited to graphic design. You can do a number of creative things. You can do graphic design. You can do photography. These are service based
creative businesses that you can do at home, and all you have to do
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 start from home or you could start a
consultancy of some kind. Whether that’s marketing or tech-related, or you could do relationship consulting if that is your skill set. You can start some kind of
consultancy and do that. That would be one business
you can start at home, and then another might be a
creative services profession like graphic design. Another business that
you can start from home, believe it or not, is a
tech support based business. Tech is not entirely
the same as consultancy because of the expertise it requires, and the level of execution involved, and there’s a little more nuance
than detailed things to it. So I would say that it’s very
different from consulting just because of how involved
or ingrained it can get, and I would say that you can have a tech-based business from home doing some very specific stuff, and that might involve doing
things on the programming side. It might involve technical
sport and customer service. It might involve help desk services, and there are a lot of companies that hire people to do that from home or that outsource to small
businesses that do that, and you could provide
that service from home. There’s obviously user
testing and bug testing that you could do as a technical person. So, I would say that that could
be a very lucrative business for you if you are in a situation where maybe you’re a stay at home parent, maybe you have an introverted personality, or you have anxiety about being in public. This is business that
would allow 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 could be creating
content for magazines and writing that stuff from home. You could be writing
for online publications. You could be doing copy
writing and advertising work for firms and companies
while working remotely, and this could be very successful for you. In terms of what you might get, you might get as much as $100 an article or you might have a rate
that is based on per word, and this may not be limited to writing. You can do video and editorial work. You could be doing proof-reading. There’s a whole business
model that you 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 could be a
very lucrative business for you if you’re a stay at home person. It doesn’t require much investment either. You just need a computer and a
smart phone for the most part and you’re good to go. There might be instances where maybe you need to use services like Dropbox. There’s a lot of stuff that’s free. I should actually do a video on all of these free
online services you can use to help your small business, and I will cover that in
another video, actually. So, the fifth and final
business we’re gonna talk about that you can start from home is you can start e-commerce based business. You can do this by a
lot of different things. You can do affiliate marketing where you’re selling other
people’s products online with websites like
Amazon or what have you. You could be selling products that you might have, on Ebay, used. There’s any number of things you could do. You could be setting
up a DIY-based business where you’re selling your products through something like Etsy. So, doing a e-commerce business
where selling products, whether they be your own or other people’s is another great stay at home business that doesn’t require a lot
for you to get started. If you’re doing the affiliate
marketing side of that, again, the most you really
need there is a computer. You might need a website
to help you out with that. You might need to start
a blog of some kind. Obviously, a social media presence. These things aren’t very expensive, and in some cases they can be free. So, I would say that that
is a very good business to start with, very high
potential profit margins, and very minimal investment. So, if you need more
information about that stuff there will be some resource
links in the description below, and you can definitely check that out. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoyed this video about five small businesses
you can start from home. If you still have questions leave those in the comment section and I

  51. Ulil Amri says:

    The procedure of starting an online business is not as challenging or expensive as you may think. The start up costs for an online business are small in comparison to a conventional bricks and mortar business, and you do not have to be a technology expert. You don’t even need to have your own services or products as you can sell other peoples and earn a commission when someone buys from you. Here are the steps to starting an online business from your home.

  52. Melissa says:

    Thanks for the info!!!
    In order to do E-com or affiliate mktg ,you have to have traffic right? What is the most effective way to market/advertise with limited income? There is so much info out there but none of it, at least that I've found, shares this important piece of info.
    So overwhelming! Any advise here?

  54. SOMEONE ElSE says:

    hey man!
    I just subcribed you…. my main target is money. that's the one thing I need the most. also being in a poor country is an issue… I just need help to get started

  55. Sal'sMusicEtc says:

    these are really obvious business ideas that are very limited to the people that have those skill sets. Who is going to give me money to consult them if I have no degrees or hard qualifications? I dont know how to graphic design, literally everyone is a photographer, nobody is going to hire me as a freelance writer unless I have experience at legit publications, e commerce is so difficult to source products unless you buy 10000 units and not even know if they will sell well against the million others selling the same product. Its freaking hard Ive been trying this shit for a while.

  56. Kendall Willson says:

    I`ve tried utilizing all the different techniques and methods promising to bring in big finances in just a few hours per day. I have been aware of “fetching mowo press” from a friend. Just Google it. Every day, my regular earnings is 100 dollars. I highly recommend it.

  57. Cole K says:
