6 home based business ideas

Product-based business ideas you can do from home.
By |

Making money from home is a no-brainer. There are just so many possibilities, with a number of businesses you can start with little capital. You never know where that humble home business can take you down the road.

Below we list the business by industry:


1) Packed healthy food

More people are becoming health conscious; they exercise and watch what they eat. Unfortunately, most of the food sold in office canteens and fast-food chains are high in fat and sugar, so why not offer customers a healthy alternative?

2) Meat processing

As the population of the Philippines grows, so does the demand for food. Those considering this business might want to check out training courses offered by the Technology Resource Center here.

Travel and tourism

3) Souvenir and giveaway

With prospects of a tourism boom in the country, it makes sense to set up a business that sells souvenirs and keepsakes targeting tourists. You can start with a heat press machine  and blast away some Philippine-themed shirts, caps and mugs. If you have a talent for carving then hammer out some native ashtrays or key chains.

4) Adventure gears and equipment

Hopping tourism means stronger demand for gears and equipment like tents, climbing shoes, swimming gears, mountain bikes and other adventure toys. You can cash in by renting out or selling these kinds of gear.

I.T and Telecommunications

5) Gadget trading

Name a gadget and you can probably sell or trade it: laptops, mobile phones, tablets, mp3 players and even cases. The drop in prices has opened gadgets to the mass market, which means more people are able to buy. Ask neighbors and friends what they want and check places like Greenhills and Quiapo for costing.

6) Load business

A load retailer can earn as much as 12 percent from the gross sales of load credits. It is a good business especially if load is sold by the volume. No big home space is required, all the vendor needs is a cell phone with a SIM card and a retailer status. To get more details, go to your telco of choice and inquire about area distributorship or load retailing. Exercise judgment and deal only with accredited distributors.
