13 Businesses You Can Start with Less Than $100
Everyone dreams of one day being their own boss. Sure, having your own small business isn’t always easy, but investing in yourself, and putting all that hard work into something that will only benefit you, has many advantages. But the one thing about starting a new business is the sheer cost.
But there are a lot of business ideas out there that are really cheap to get up and running, plus they can be very profitable if you put in the time and effort. So here are 13 businesses you can start with less than $100!
1. Small Batch Gourmet Food Creator
If you are legendary at a particular dish, make the best chocolate bars in the world or have a cheesecake that your Mother would sell you for, then consider becoming a Small Batch Gourmet Food Creator! Take a sample of your wares to various cafe’s and restaurants to show them what you’ve got!
I know of one lady that just makes her legendary Red Velvet Cupcakes here in Gympie, they are soooo good!
Some ideas for gourmet small batch food ideas include:
- Macarons in varies flavours in a nice box
- Unique chocolate bars
- Delivery Donut Boxes
2. Flat Lay Instagram Photography
If you already have a good camera, and a good eye for colours and style, consider becoming a flat lay Instagram photographer! Offer your services to Instagram and Facebook businesses that need pretty photographs of their stock. Grab unique backdrops from your local flooring centre (see if you can buy cut-offs in many different colours and styles). Photograph from overhead, light it perfectly and edit – and you have a beautiful Instagram Flat You that you could charge money for. Images could be styled and sold from $100 plus!
Even easier than that – find a Graphic Artist online and pay them an hourly rate for doing all the styling and photographs themselves. You then become the ‘Manager’ and can sell multiple photographs to multiple buyers – and even list those photographs for sale on various stock photograph sites. As you grow, you can employ more graphic artists or have them for more hours. It is a very scaleable business!
3. Home Holiday Decorator
I adore Christmas, but don’t particularly like putting up the Christmas decorations – or taking them down for that matter! If you adore doing this kind of job, and can create the perfect Christmas Tree, why not work during the holidays doing this kind of work. But when you think about it, it isn’t just households that put up Christmas Decorations, approach local commercial businesses and shopping centres to see if you can tender for their holiday work.
