Top Small Business Ideas For 2017

Looking back on my four years in college at the University of Nebraska, I had various businesses that kept me afloat. If you can make an internal arrangement with supermarkets, this can be a big time business. Create a website for your window-washing business , or have a web designer create a website for you. Many YouTube users make well into the millions each year, so there’s clear potential to take this from side hustle business idea to millionaire with the right combination of content, audience, skills, relationships and timing. Just choose the skills you have from the list below, and I’ll show you a list of businesses that have turned those exact skills into a profitable online business.

The list can go on. The cost for starting a consulting business is very low as it will just cost you the price of a box of business cards printed with your information on them. Investment: Opening a brewery can mean high startup costs, depending on the size of your operation. My good friend, Caroline Beaton used freelance writing as a side hustle business to eventually go from secretary to self-employed, while focusing on her own personal development and looking inward to discover what she’s truly passionate about.

Cleaning services: Whether you focus on cleaning private homes or commercial properties, running a cleaning service is a potentially lucrative business with minimal startup costs. Starting a Niche Blog can be a very rewarding and low cost business to start while in college. In today’s post and episode of Noah Kagan Presents, I break down my formula for creating new business ideas. Google has recently implemented an update that weeds out most listicle blogs from their search results due to the frequent low quality of its content.

Of course, if you decide to open a bookstore as your small town business you’ll want to make sure that the main focus is books. If you are a fashion guy or gal and you want to start a small business out of it, putting up an online store these days is not really not that hard. This business needs special skill to pack an entire household into a few boxes.

Affiliate Marketing – An easy and fast way to start a business is to promote the products and service of other businesses as an affiliate marketer. Virtual assisting is another low-cost business to start since the main things you need you likely already have — a computer with internet access. If you have the hankering to make stuff and earn cash selling it, then making and selling homemade arts and crafts could be the right business for you. It doesn’t matter if you’re Richard Branson, or someone looking to start their own business for the first time.
