Free Money Making Ideas for Home Based Business

by Money Guide Man

The start of any business is a business idea. And many successful businesses started with not too much more than an idea. That also holds true for home based businesses. The key here is creativity and hard work. If you have access to a computer and the Internet, you can turn a good business idea into a good business – a money making business, with these free money making ideas.

Here are 3 general free money making ideas. All require a starting capital of almost nothing (besides perhaps having a computer connected to the Internet, which if you’re reading this, isn’t a problem).

1st idea: Research a topic thoroughly and sell your expertise to others. Currently, people not only need information, but they need precise information. On the other hand, the amount of information available is so huge that no one can master it alone. If you regularly gather information about a topic and monetize it, you will be helping people and cashing in on that. There are several ways of monetizing your expertise about a topic. You can sell it in the form of e-books, or you could write articles, upload them and sell the ad space on your web-page.


2nd idea: Gather things that people don’t need and sell them online. Many people have a basement or garage full of stuff that they don’t need anymore and these people are often eager to get rid of it. However, not everyone has the time to deal with it, which is where you come in. You could advertise it as a service – you will be helping them recycling what they don’t need anymore and charging your clients online. You will be surprised about how valuable those things are that nobody wanted. Some of them are antiquities, others are collectibles – people collect many incredible things, others can be simply repaired before they are sold.

3rd idea: Be an online personal assistant (PA). If you can stay online for long hours, offer your services as a personal assistant. Many people have too much stress and will be happy to have a virtual helper somewhere on the Internet. Be as flexible as you can and try to offer a whole range of services – transcriptions, write letters, research better prices, make calls, take calls, collect bills, etc.

Online Money Making Ideas

by Money Guide Man

There are lots of money making ideas out there. However, what are the best online ideas that will really bring money? Here are a few of them:

Web Design
With lots of people starting their own business these days, many people are in need of good web page designs. The amount of tutorials or how-to articles on the Internet is simply huge. However, not everyone has the time to go through these tutorials to make their own web page. Many people will only need a new web page once, therefore it’s a much better deal to hire a dedicated freelance to do the job. If you want to be a freelance web-developer or web-designer take your time to discover what others are doing, gather your samples together and make sure that they not only look good, but that they are also technically top-notch.

Tutoring is a relatively harder field to break into, but it’s possible. Students expect from a tutor that they are knowledgeable, that they understand their needs and that they help them under time pressure. There are lots of topics where students need to be tutored. There are also lots of resources for these students. However, most students don’t have the time or ability to go through these resources. Try to specialize in just one topic – like math, for example – and just one kind of situation – like tutoring two days before an examination. If you get just one client, and help him passing his examination, this will be a good reference for you. People rely on word-of-mouth advertisement in this kind of service, since it’s impossible to know how good a tutor will be.


Freelance Writing
Freelance writing can be related to the web page design online money making idea. Web pages don’t just need the structure, graphics and programs to keep running. People needs web pages with text on it. Many people want to build sites full of content and they are willing to pay others money to write articles for them. You can specialize in writing on one topics that you know a lot about, or you can offer to write articles for other on topics you may not know much about, but are willing to do a little bit of research for.

eBay Selling.
Since it’s beginning many years ago, eBay has been a huge success story, not only for the company and its shareholders, but also for sellers using eBay auctions to market their products. eBay is the ideal venue to sell uncommon products or well-priced products. Make no mistake, people who buy on eBay know what they want and how much it costs. You’ll need to be different than other sellers, either cheaper or have unique products.

When trying to earn money online without investing a huge amount of money, don’t just follow what people are saying online. Be as creative as you can and exploit your talents. Many things can make you money on the internet.

Kids Money Making Ideas

by Money Guide Man

Having some pocket money as a kid is always nice. However, kids should also learn that money doesn’t grow in trees – or in their parents’ wallets either! Kids should realize that earning money implies investing time and energy. Motivating your kids to work a little is not only economically meaningful, but also a good educational lesson.

One kids money making idea is to gather and sell stuff that others don’t need. Some kids organize flea markets or swap meets. Second hand goods can be traded this way. A swap meet can be indoors or in your front door, if you live in a quiet neighborhood. The most simple form is just a table with everything on it. Some kids also offer home made lemonade as an additional product. Through this idea you can get rid of any unwanted household that you may have.

Another great idea to to shovel snow or rake leaves.  These are simply tasks that most young ones can do with friends to get the job done quicker.  Children who are a little bit older can clean houses or mow lawns.  Also, if your child can wrap gifts well, they can sell their services to neighbors.


If your child can create useful crafts, then selling them can be a good job.  Picture frames and greeting cards are thing that neighbors will buy to support your children.  If you’re stuck on ideas, why not ask your neighbors what they would buy?  This can teach your child to do market research, and they can provide a product needed by their market.

If your child has a camera, they can take pictures for people.  You can probably find a used polaroid camera at a yard sale or on eBay or Craigslist.  Then, go with your child to the park where people walk around or are playing, and have them ask people if they want their picture taken for a small fee.  Maybe you’ll find someone who wants a picture of them walking their dog, or a couple of a first date.

Last but not least, a lemonade stand is always a great idea.  They don’t just have to sell lemonade.  When it’s a little cooler outside, why not sell hot chcoolate?  You can always allow the kids to assist in baking some cookies or brownies to supplement the lemonade or other drinks they will be selling.
