If you have ever lived in a small town and entertained houseguests, you’ve probably often wished that your town had a bed and breakfast. Though small towns with a tourism industry will often have historical inns or at least a motel or two, towns that aren’t exactly Plymouth, MA or Williamsburg, VA often go without. That means no place for the in-laws to stay or guests for a family reunion or wedding. Opening a small inn or bed and breakfast can help fill a need in your area. If you’re worried about being able to keep your rooms booked, go small. Bed and breakfast owners tend to live in the same homes they manage, often converting their larger homes into B&Bs. This is a great idea for those who have recently become empty nesters with too many rooms to fill. If you’re later in life and looking for business ideas for small towns, this concept is a great one to explore.

Dogs are amazing. But, owners aren’t always at home to take them for a walk. If you’re a canine fan like I hope you are, this great side business idea can net you a regular profit by just taking some adorable pups for a stroll around the park. With pet-crazed, yet busy Americans having more pooches around, dog walking services have become a thriving industry in some U.S. cities. In fact, there’s already an app called Wag that links up dog walkers who want to exercise this business idea with the pet owners who need a helping hand.

Hands Off Business Ownership Income Store, part of Today’s Growth, a 3-Time Inc.500/5000 honoree, is in there 24th year in business. Income Store builds and buys revenue generating websites. To date, they are partnered on over 714 revenue generating website assets seen by over 200 million people each year. Income Store’s model is similar to real estate rental property and franchising. Income Store finds the best locations and categories to build or buy, then seeks a partner to fund the project in exchange for a percentage of revenue. For quick info view: http://incomestore.com/how-income-store-works/ Currently on the table are their next 7 revenue generating platforms. Platforms include, but are not limited to sports and politics to cooking and wine, beer & cheese. Each of the seven projects delivers a monthly revenue share to the partner ranging between $2500 to $7000+ per month, or $30,000 to $80,000+ each year. They are looking for capital investments of $200,000 for each of the seven properties. After funding, Income Store builds, manages, monetizes and maintains the property. Income Store’s website platforms are in use throughout all of North America, Costa Rica, Europe and Dubai. They enjoy partnering with individuals, companies and private equity firms. Similar to a real estate agent, Income Store acts as an agent and then manager, finding or building “Revenue Generating” websites for individuals, groups and funds. They refer to the individuals, groups and as “Site Partners”. Income Store uses the term Site Partner because they have skin in the game. Instead of getting paid an upfront fee, like a real estate agent, Income Store receives a revenue share on each site purchased or built. Income Store is unique on many levels. They are the only company that acts as the “Buyer/Builder – Host – Manager – Content Writer – Marketing Agency – Monetization Agency and Maintenance Arm” for a website purchase or buildout. What makes them truly unique is that they perform all of the aforementioned services on a “pay per performance” basis. If the site partner doesn’t make money, Income Store doesn’t make money.

There are a lot of items that can be purchased very inexpensively at garage sales or thrift stores and sold for higher prices elsewhere. A few years ago I discovered that I could purchase good hardcover books at my local thrift shop for $1 or less. I realized that some of them could be sold on Amazon.com for $15-$20, which turns out to be a pretty decent profit. Find and sell enough items and you have a fun home business.
All right, pick your jaw off the floor-I’ll tell you how this happens. You’re probably all too aware of those obnoxious video ads on YouTube that are shown before the video that you really want to watch.

Later on, I managed to earn more money from Walmart.com as an affiliate and joined commission junction and other affiliate networks to earn more money in affiliate marketing. the one part I really find challenging is creating rich content for my site every day or every other day. This is when I focus on other things such as YouTube video marketing, writing periodicals online, and so on. But nevertheless, joining a multiple affiliate networks is good for anyone to do because you want to create diversify sources of income. Just be mindful that when you join multiple affiliate networks you’re not only keeping in touch regularly with the affiliate managers you partner with through those specific affiliate programs, assure also asking them questions often about how to create effective affiliate landing pages,, informative YouTube videos with your affiliate link in them, as well as asking your affiliate manager to offer any other kind of promotional tactics you can use to increase your affiliate commission potential. I am sick and tired of hearing some people say they never earn one dime in affiliate marketing. That’s absolutely nonsense because they’re lazy and don’t bother to do the extra work. If you’re building relationships with your target audience and affiliate managers, creating content for your site and engaging YouTube videos daily or every other day, and staying active with other marketers in the affiliate marketing community, there’s no reason for you to fail.. Simple as that!
Yes, you can make money by blogging. I follow several stay-at-home moms who happen to be fashion and style bloggers – and it’s their business. If you can write and have a passion for a specific topic or hobby that you know will garner some attention, then this might be for you. Income generation opportunities can come in the form of affiliate marketing and advertising on your website or from companies who ask you to review and blog about their products. Look for ways to get traffic to your website through social media, search engine optimization and by getting involved in the wider blogosphere (networking with and commenting on the blogs of others in your niche).
