Have you ever wanted to start a business but thought that you didn't have enough money for that startup or you didn't have specific specialised skills? Well this list of ideas are here to tell you otherwise.
Passive income isn't exactly a business idea, but it is a brilliant way to make some money while you do nothing. Passive income is when you spend time doing something which will then make money while you do nothing. For example, if you are writing a book or ebook that is spending time on something which will then generate you money while you do nothing. Passive income also includes; blogs, YouTube, online courses, websites, drop-shipping, affiliate marketing, and books/ebooks.
Garden Care Services
Garden care businesses are very easy to start and if you have a lawnmower and gloves then all you need are some customers to show off your skills. Garden care services can pay very well if you keep a good reputation and good standard of work. This type of business can include cutting grass, insuring that no plants will die, and other general maintenance that a garden will need.
Freelancer or freelance worker is basically a person which does work for businesses or other people who aren't connected to them in the long-term. This is mostly done on a computer like work such as; video editor, photo editor, animating videos, graphic design, proofreading, and far more. Freelance work can be done at home and could give you an extra £50+ a week.
Sell your creativeness.
If you are a creative person and love making new crafts or inventions, then you can sell them on sites such as Etsy, Shopify or eBay. You can sell just ordinary crafts, upholstery, floristry, and much more. This could need some particular skills, depending on what you decide to do.
Start a blog.
Starting a blog can take a lot of hard work at the start, but when you get the viewers the money starts rolling in. This can be on anything you want. Although I would advise to do it on something you love. When you do it something you love you are less likely to quit, which means you will eventually get the audience you want. You can also have vlogs and podcasts that can be associated with your blog.
Becoming a website developer can have a lot of advantages to it. You can make websites for other people or businesses, make websites for your own personal, use and sell advertisement space, or make a website for affiliate marketing and drop shipping. There are lots more of ways to make money off of website development, just find which one you find easier and start it.
App developer is another great and easy way to make money. This method could even make you your first million. There's lots of different apps you could start to develop from sound effects to a create your own city type-game. You can generate money from advertisements or the money people pay for your game.
Investing in stocks and Cryptocurrencies
Investing in stocks and cryptocurrencies are getting more popular by the day. And it's also an amazing way to make some good cash, it may not come to you instantly but it will come over time with the right research in your desired stock. Although people get trading and investing mixed up, trading is holding onto stocks in a short time period, whereas investing is holding on to them for a longer time period. This also affects your profit or loss, the longer you hold onto it, the more you either win or lose.
Hopefully this has helped you get a better idea on how to make up to an extra £1,000 a month. Not all of these methods are businesses but they can make more money than a business if done correctly.
