Home Business ideas #2 [077] Browser Check:

Home Business idea #2 [077] Browser Check:

How many help desks out there ask you what browser are you using? I don’t know! They should have a tool that tells them everything about your browser so they can fix your fault quick-time! There are quite a few websites that offer this service but I don’t see anyone offering this as a service to helpdesks/tech support companies.

Home Business ideas #3 [078] How To Be Awesome Course:

Home Business idea #3 [078] How To Be Awesome Course:

The word awesome is probably one of the most marketed word used in 2013. A course in how to be awesome would be cool. It could teach you how to be cool, relax, be minimalist with monthly challenges. How to send emails properly, how to send marketing emails correctly etc How to be a better manager, better co-worker, better person! Life coaches could definitely do this instead of “life coaching” which is very off-putting and 1990′s.

Home Business ideas #4 [079] Get Started:

Home Business idea #4 [079] Get Started:

So I won some business last year for large accounting firm who wanted me to write an online “Get Started” manual for social media and anything that the older employees needed to know about the online and social world. So I asked them for subjects and then I typed a “How to Get Started” list and actions which went down really well. I think a website with say 100 topics to start with and then a how to get started list. Here is a good example from Anthony Feint.

Home Business ideas #5 [080] 3 Friends: Another app idea:

Home Business idea #5 [080] 3 Friends: Another app idea:

It involves you and two other close friends and how you much you really know about each other. So you download the app – connect with three friends who also download it (viral effect) and it then sets up a set of questions about one of the friends and then the two other compete against it by getting the answers right. It then feeds back the score. You then play this game two more times alternating the friend in question. Its incredibly viral as you keep asking more and more friends to beat your score. My girlfriend loves this one so if you do decide to do it – let me know!

Home Business idea #6 [081] GIF Tutorials:

Home Business idea #6 [081] GIF Tutorials:

This comes from an idea Timothy E. Johansson had as day 2 of his 100 Day Growth Hacking experiment. Using GIF images to show users how something works. You could offer this service using an offshore partner and offer it to every technical company in you can speak too. Cheap but hugely effective and we now use this at our RFID business showing customers how to setup the device and it has had raving reviews.

Home Business idea #7 [082] Santa Has Been:

Home Business idea #7 [082] Santa Has Been:

This Christmas was special in the fact my friends kids was old enough to understand and be excited by Santa turning up at our house. I used a cardboard cutout of a boot and sprinkled talc powder around them all over the house to represent magical Santa footprints. We even put fake reindeer hair by the front door. I wish there was a “Santa has been” kit that I could order each year that had all of these little tricks and more to make my little girl experience the fact Santa has truly been. If you could do this – I would buy it!

Home Business idea #8 [083] Competitor Watch:

Home Business idea #8 [083] Competitor Watch:

This would be a paid monthly service where I can request competitor reports on a company. You send me a report detailing all of their activities in that month via social media, news etc You could even include marketing information e.g. where are they advertising, what deals and pricing are they offering. I know there are social media listening services that offer this but this could be a little more in depth including making phone calls and obtaining quotes.

Home Business idea #9 [084] Drone Service:

Home Business idea #9 [084] Drone Service:

I don’t know what yet but I have been watching the Bloomberg reports about drones being used in all sorts of sectors and I can’t help but believe this will one day be a big industry. Start something in this space, drone parts, service for Drones, their already is a lawyer setting up shop to deal with drone legal issues – what else can you think about to setup for the drone invasion? Estate agents in the UK are now gearing up to use drones to get film budget footage of properties and it really has had an impact on the sales rates. The issue now is privacy and the legal side of this business.

Home Business idea #10 [085] Solar Panel Cleaning:

Home Business idea #10 [085] Solar Panel Cleaning:

There are loads of these solar panels up everywhere – even in dull and dark England. If the cells aren’t clean then the performance of these can be seriously reduced so keeping them clean is important. But also cleaning them you really need to know what you are doing. In the UK one guy has setup a website offering to advertise window cleaners who are currently now offering this service. He then went onto make a fortune on training and qualifying people to safely clean solar panels. There are more ways to make money than just selling and installing solar panels.

Home Business idea #11 [086] Vegan Education:

Home Business idea #11 [086] Vegan Education:

Me and my girlfriend have been ignorant for so long at the suffering of animals and so have embarked this year on a road to going vegan. Its hard and were about 90% there but boy do we feel we know nothing about food. We really do have to question everything and we wish there was a better way of going vegan. We haven’t found any decent iPhone apps, there is nothing online yet that we have found useful – just thousands of pages of info. We need a hand-held course to show us what to eat, where to get it from, how to swap this with that, the biggest challenges you will face etc

Home Business idea #12 [087] 1 Goal/1 Mentor:

Home Business idea #12 [087] 1 Goal/1 Mentor:

So this is where experienced people can either give a bit of their time back for free or earn extra income mentoring young people of tomorrow. So for example a student sets up a business with a revolutionary new technology but needs guidance in how to protect it, market it etc. They can put an advert up for a mentor to see and apply. You could build a high-level platform and have FTSE 100 companies and try and invite them to join and then charge a premium for access for people looking for mentoring. But the key would be on the fact that there is a goal and also an expert in that field as a mentor.

Home Business idea #13 [088] MySpace 2:

Home Business idea #13 [088] MySpace 2:

This sounds silly but if you look at the way Facebook is now being left behind by the new younger generation who are now using sites and apps such as WhatsApp and WeHeartIt you can see they are using personalized pages and images of their favorite things. What if you offered a combined website and told them that everything they share can have an affiliate link so if some purchases something on their page they can make money.

Home Business idea #14 [089] LoveLanguage:

Home Business idea #14 [089] LoveLanguage:

Learning a new language by discussing stuff you love so you could have combined cooking classes with a Spanish teacher, fishing with a French teacher and yoga with a Mandarin teacher! Or combine videos or lessons about subjects or topics that people enjoy and they can learn that way by doing something they enjoy and are passionate about. This would also work really well with kids. A bit like Messy Church phenomenon but with learning a new language.

Home Business idea #15 [090] Curated Corporate Training:

Home Business idea #15 [090] Curated Corporate Training:

Companies drop huge amounts of money on training courses for their staff. One issue we have noticed here in our 7 person small company is that the larger frequently run courses do not offer us enough tailored training and so we never attend these. If there was a provider who could curate us a course that tackled our needs then this would be very appealing for example, we have started social media but we do not do it very well and we know this. We also have a blog that needs a better strategy. Maybe a one day course curated to cover all of these issues we would go for. You could go out and talk to companies, ask them what their biggest challenges are and then go and find experts in this area to deliver this and you take a commission.

Home Business idea #17 [092] Dart:

Home Business idea #17 [092] Dart:

Imagine a web app where you can view items online and be notified when they become cheaper? So you might look at some shoes online but they be a little out of your budget – you can let the company know you like them but you won’t part with you hard earned until they lower the price. The retailer will have a firm list of people who will buy them at a lower rate so when sales drop off the retailer can act and still shift the stock.

Home Business ideas #22 [097] LastPillow:

Home Business ideas #22 [097] LastPillow:

This would be an app where owners of small guest houses and BnB’s and even hotel could put on last minute rooms that they have. So for example I might be in London and open the app up at say 1500pm to see what accommodation is available. The hotel might have a cancellation and so now can make money on the room if they release it last minute at a discounted price.

Home Business ideas #24 [099] 3D Job Tests:

Home Business ideas #24 [099] 3D Job Tests:

Taking recruitment that one step further by testing potential applicants before you hire them. So in the UK there is a company who has a mock office setup and they hire actors to form a fake workplace scenario and a potential employee will spend they day going through different scenarios and being assessed. Why not take this online. Use 3D animation scenarios and a number of questions that potential candidates must go through before a company wastes times and resources interviewing lots of people.

Home Business ideas #25 [100] Self-Publisher Reviews:

Home Business ideas #25 [100] Self-Publisher Reviews:

The high number of self-publishers calls for marketing companies to offer ways to promote their work. More people means more competition. Like an app review service you could review a new publisher and their work by reading three chapters. Build up a bit of a back date in work and you will soon start getting publishers asking for your reviews. Build up an email newsletter list where you can also make revenue advertising. Even break off into niches e.g. sci-fi, poetry, self-help etc
