Some supposedly boring businesses have long fascinated me. Keep it that way with the glamor loss compared to other themes that are more popular now.
I think that in this post, investing a little time than usual, I could come up with a list of 50-100 dumb business ideas that, if well executed, can make you money. With these things it is like with everything in life. I have already given you the key in the previous sentence. Not by launching one of these businesses you will automatically earn money. You have to do things right.
I am convinced that it is easier to earn money in these camps since depending on your location you may have less competition. Other businesses may seem more “sexy” at first glance but have a high level of risk because few have done it before. These businesses cover the basic needs of people. You will always have asked.
I just saw a video with this type of business that just gave me the idea for this post. It is a laundry that billed more than 3 million dollars with 164 machines. It is clear that the initial investment for this is brutal but you can also start small. You can rent a place in your town and put 6-10 machines to work. In the case of this company we also offer a collection and delivery service to wash your clothes. If there was something near us in Germany I think I would already be using it.
In the field of washing things you can do many things. This is one more. People love their cars and even more so if they are clean. Shining up your neighbors’ prized cars is one more way to make money. It is a simple business that does not require much to start. Yes indeed. In Germany it is not allowed to wash cars in front of your front door. I don’t know the situation in other countries. Whenever you negotiate, find out where you have a legal level to do and where you can possibly generate a fine. Before taking the first step, you need to be well informed.
In order not to choose only cleaning companies, let’s also talk about gardening companies. To do marketing in this case, what I would do is go to Google Maps and search for all the addresses that have a large garden. Here you can throw your foutos. Depending on the neighborhood, you don’t even have to do this work because all the houses have a garden. This strategy has been used by someone who cleaned swimming pools and it has given him very good results. Gardening services are always in demand and tasks such as mowing the lawn may be one of the tasks that your potential clients will need.
If you have any kind of pests at home just go want someone to take care of it and fast. The price is not going to be so relevant as long as you are sure that someone will be at home quickly and can solve the problem quickly. It is a type of business with a bad reputation which makes it even more attractive from my point of view. What I am not sure about is if you are possibly going to need some kind of certificate to dedicate yourself to it. Likewise, not everyone can set up this type of business from scratch. Although the barrier to entry is still a little higher than in the restaurant, I see it as an attractive way to earn money.
Here I can only be guided by what I have seen in Germany. It is an easy negotiation to learn. What a locksmith does sounds like magic but it’s actually not that hard to open a front door without breaking it if you have the right tools. Here it could be easy to compete and even more so if you are one of the newcomers to enter the market providing a service with a good price-quality ratio. Locksmiths typically have a reputation for abusing and overcharging for their clients’ emergency situations. You could engage in a different negotiation.
Earning money is never easy but it is always possible. Starting a boring business could increase your chance of success since you’re copying something people have been doing for decades. Right now I stand up and I’m not going to do new things but in a couple of years it could be a curious experiment.
