“legitimate online business”

But these companies cover lots of different areas, and on “The Early Show” Monday, Jen Groover, author of “What If? and Why Not?: How to Transform Your Fears Into Action and Start the Business of Your Dreams,” filled viewers in on some of what she deems well-worthy of consideration.

She just created an online store and sold all of her products via her website.  If you aren’t creating your own product you can always find a product to dropship – that way you don’t have to store any inventory in your home.

It used to be, you had to go to the schools or homes of students, or they had to come to your home for tutoring, however, with video conferencing, you can help students from anywhere around the world.

A turnkey business is an excellent business idea for someone who is entrepreneurial, motivated and hard-working, yet does not have the technical knowledge or specific expertise to start a business from scratch. The great advantage of a turnkey business is that it includes everything you need to get the business up and running. No extra work is required on your part to start it up; all you have to do is “turn the key” and it is off the ground. An alternative to hig- risk businesses, a turnkey business uses reputation and goodwill to fuel its momentum and earning power.

What you do will depend on the needs of the business. It can be for a corporation or even for a self-employed project manager that simply doesn’t have the time to keep up with the day-to-day paperwork and doesn’t want the pile in his office to grow to the size of Mt. Everest.

Remote usability study: You can do this one from anywhere in the world. This is done through a screen-sharing session with a researcher. They’ll ask you to visit a site (Google-owned properties like YouTube, Google+, etc) and try different things while browsing.

I kind of “fell into” my at home business. I was a customer of their website division a few years ago. When my husband got downsized – I closed my business and started working with my current company. It’s been such a blessing to be able to stay at home (2 girls in elementary school) and help contribute to our family. When our company started another division helping non-profits with alternative funding – it was something I was passionate about. I feel very blessed to have found the real deal with my at home businesses and in the two years I’ve been with them – it all keeps getting better.

Are you persistent? Detail oriented? Marketing Assistants offer such tasks such as writing press releases, creating newsletters, blogs, podcasts, offering copywriting services, marketing research or integrating social networking into a marketing strategy – the services that you can provide are endless, and all depend on your specific niche and background experience.

It’s not very engaging, or mentally stimulating, but online surveys do pay out (a little), believe it or not. Just don’t expect to make bank with this side business idea—I recommend combining it with another source of side income from this list of my best business ideas, and turning to surveys in your downtime when you need a little extra income.

If you have that drive and experience, however, being a restaurateur can be a successful endeavor and a great business for a small town. Just be aware that as glamorous as it might seem from the outside, one-quarter of all restaurants will fail within the first year. We don’t say this to discourage you; it’s just good to know what you’re up against. Doing your market research prior to opening, and investing in technology such as a restaurant POS system, can help you ensure your business stays open and on top.

As long as you at least use the home office to conduct your administrative or management chores and you don’t make substantial use of any other fixed location to conduct those tasks, you can pass this test. This rule makes it much easier to claim home office deductions for individuals who conduct most of their income-earning activities somewhere else (such as outside salespersons, tradespeople, or professionals).

Werewolves, step-brothers, and tentacles—the demand is high. As odd as it may sound, if you’ve got the imagination (and a clever pseudonym), you can make upwards of $5,000 a month writing erotic fiction in your free time as a side business idea.

As well as advice and support from government and those within your network, you should also consider consulting an experienced business adviser, accountant or bank manager. These business advisors are valuable as they may be able to share the experiences of others and provide guidance to you when making important decisions.

I really appreciate all the hard work you put into this list. I never knew there were so many options. I have worked my entire life and am currently a undergrad in Business MGMT/Healthcare. In 2014, my 20 yr old son became a quadriplegic. For the first time, in many years, I am a stay at home mom. At 38, I have spent too many years being independent to feel comfortable relying on my husband. You have given me hope and a starting point. Thank you

Expertise is another matter, but remember that writing can take many forms—from resumes to news articles to marketing materials and even thank-you notes. (You can even write for businesstown.com, although that gig doesn’t pay … yet.) There’s probably some form of writing you’re qualified to do. Plus, if you’re good enough with grammar and punctuation, companies will pay you to be a freelance editor. One friend made good money editing posts on a popular travel site.

Looks like this post is a few years old now but I just wanted to tell you that I think its great! It is so nice to see a post that advocates for survey sites. Too often I see posts about how they are complete scams. That can be very discouraging to read especially when there IS money to be made with surveys, particularly for moms with young babies. I have had a lot of success myself. The first sites I signed up with were Inbox Dollars and Vindale. I have since found better paying sites but I do love SurveySpot! My other favorites are Global Test Market and Swagbucks. Between the survey sites and other online jobs like forum posting, I have made several hundred dollars in just the last few months. It feels great to help out by buying items we need but that my hubby’s check just won’t stretch to.

You can begin in a very small way, starting with one order at a time and grow by the power of compounding.For example, sales in your first six months may produce only $1,000 per month. But if you can continue growing by 20% during each ongoing six month period, in five years your annual sales will be over $370,000.
