BUSINESSES

YOU

CAN

FOR

TRADE ON EBAY

Use eBay pulse to see what's

hot in the marketplace. Then invest

in setting up a professional-looking

eBay shop, from £14.99 a month.

Read our guide on setting up an

eBay shop here.

SELL STOCK

PHOTOGRAPHY

Sell good quality digital photos

to sites like istock.com,

shutterpoint.com and

fotolia.com. But be warned: this

is quite the slow-burner. There's

lots of advice here and don't

miss our guide on starting a

photography business.

PERSONAL CHEF

Invest in a good cookery

course (like the ones listed

here), then start offering

your services to friends of

friends in need of dinner

party assistance. If you want

to make it big in chocolate,

check out these great tips.

slide5
4

BECOME A

COOKERY WRITER

As above - then publish your

own cookery book through

blurb.com.Sales will come

in from the site, and you can

sell yourself to new

prospective clients by saying

you're also a cookery author.

slide6
5

ANTIQUES TRADER

Do some serious homework

on cheaper pieces - invest in

an encyclopaedia and read

mags like this one. Buy a

few items to hedge your

bets, then sell to antiques

dealers and shops.

slide7
6

VIRTUAL

ASSISTANT

Sign up to a site like virtualassistants.co.uk (£2.95

to post a listing for 12 months). Invest in a secretarial or

touch typing course to give you an edge over other

candidates. More advice here.

personal
PERSONAL

TRAINER

Proper training courses are

several hundred pounds at

least (recommended ones

here), but if you're a

marathon old-hand or a gym-

bod you could entice some

clients without. Pick up part-

time work in a gym to find

clients.

slide9
8

SNACK STALL

You can buy a stall for

around £100 - £150 (from

somewhere like this). Make

sure you comply with all

health and safety

regulations and get a

license from your local

council if you're selling

alcohol, hot food between

11pm and 5am or food from

a stall or van on the street.

slide10

LATE-NIGHT

ALCOHOL DELIVERY

Supply the midnight

masses and charge a

premium on booze and

snacks delivered after pub

closing time. You'll need a

personal license to sell

alcohol, which costs £37 -

get it online from your

local council.

CLEANING COMPANY

Start this business with no overheads by using clients'

cleaning products. Pay for criminal record checks

(CRB checks,£26 each) for yourself and any other

members of staff to reassure new customers once you

get some money coming in.

*Resources from our partners*

Start-Ups package: Two years' free Business

Banking and up to £1,000 of free start-up

benefits, including online start-up courses, from

FOCUS GROUP

ORGANISER

Target small businesses at networking

events and with flyers to user-test

their new products or websites. Then

place free ads on Gumtree to find

participants and skim a fee off their

hourly pay. More info here on

conducting focus groups.

slide13
1 2

FLYERING AGENCY

Call around all local business and clubs

and say you'll find them someone to

hand out flyers for a £3 charge (on top

of their hourly rate). Then find

students in need of work on Gumtree.

slide14
1 3

POP-UP

RESTAURANT

Decorate your living room, stick some

posters in your front window and start a

restaurant in your house. Technically you're

meant to get a load of health and safety

checks done for this, but there's a whole

crop of people doing it on the sly. Check

out our guest blog from Horton

Jupiter to find out how it's done.

slide15

TREASURE HUNT

BUSINESS

You can start this business for next to

nothing. Do some research on your

local area and plant clues for family fun

days and cheap office outings. Take a

look at how Hunt Fun and

Treasure Days are doing it.

slide16

SELL POT PLANTS, HERBS

AND HOME-GROWN VEG

The whole of the middle class is into

organic and home-grown veg these days,

and with packets of hundreds of seeds

coming in at around 60p, you can sell your

own produce for a whopping profit. Or

just take clippings of plants and herbs you

already have, grow out into separate pots

and sell to neighbours and friends.

slide17
1 6

GARDENING AND

LANDSCAPING ASSISTANT

Got green fingers? Put them to use by

offering your services to people in your

area. Show them sketches of how you

think the garden could be improved and

you become a landscape gardener to

boot (though you'll need to do careful

research on what grows well in which

places and at what times of year).

slide18

MEAL DELIVERY

SERVICE

Capitalise on people too busy or too

lazy to cook by offering to deliver

delicious dishes of their liking, home-

cooked by you. Check out our

interview with the founder of

The Pure Package for inspiration.

slide19

WALKING AND

BIKE TOURS

Armed with nothing more than a map

and a book on local history, you can

guide tours around your local

commons, hills or towns and share

insight into the history of your area

for a small charge.

slide20
1 9

CLOTHES REPAIRS

Basic needlework is astonishingly

straightforward. Offer to darn

friends of friends' clothes for a

nominal fee and take in too-big

shirts and skirts.

slide21

GIFT BASKETS

Knocking up ribbon-adorned

wicker baskets brimming with Bon

Maman jams, freshly-baked muffins

and fruit is relatively cheap, but

you can charge a premium.

slide22
2 1

DOG TRAINING

Easy if you know how. Getting a

formal qualification will improve your

chances of doing business with

people you don't know. Check out

the Association of Pet Dog

Trainers for more info.

slide23
2 2

PET SITTING AND

WALKING

Most pet owners prefer one-on-one

TLC for their animals than putting

them into kennels. Keep your rates

competitive and incentivise clients

to refer a friend.

slide24
2 3

EVENT AND

PARTY PLANNING

Perfect if you've got a natural knack

for organisation. Establishing cut-

price deals with catering

companies, florists, wine suppliers

and the like will ensure you offer a

competitive service.

slide25
2 4

CAR BOOT SALES

Have a proper clear-out of your junk

to get started, then reinvest profits

into buying stuff from any charity

shop you have time to scour. Offer to

take friends' junk off their hands to

cut overheads.

slide26
5 2

SOCIAL MEDIA

ASSISTANT

More and more small businesses are

latching onto the fact social media can help

them, so offer to maintain accounts for

them for a small fee - you can keep

business ticking over while still doing your

day job. Tools like Tweetdeck will help

hugely. More advice here.

slide27
2 6

HANDYMAN

There are gutters to clean, tiles to

be scrubbed, lawns to be raked and

paths to be laid all around the

country. Post friendly notes through

letterboxes advertising a cheap

hourly rate.

slide28
2 7

HOME TUTOR

If you've got a degree, or good A-

level results, you can offer to help

out schoolkids with their homework

and exams. Get a certification to

make it more official if you struggle

to find work. The BBC has some

good info on that.

slide29
2 8

COMPUTER

SKILLS MENTOR

There are still millions of people out

there who feel utterly confounded by

computers and the internet. If you're a

spreadsheet whiz or an Outlook old-

hand, you can charge them for lessons.

slide30
2 9

CV CONSULTANT

If you've made it through the rat race

and come out the other side older

and wiser, you can help newbies tidy

up their CV's. Advertise on Gumtree

and ask friends, and keep fees low.

SECOND-HAND

CLOTHES STALL

Get yourself down to a retro clothes

market in a university town, armed

with piles of 70s, 80s and 90s clothes

from charity shops, and you'll find you

can charge anything from £5 to £50 an

item. Ask the local council about

renting a stall.
