Man with a Van: How do you feel about heavy-lifting? A furniture removal service may be the way to go if you have the muscle to back it up. You could also hire help to do aid with the lifting but you also need to consider costs of promotional activity, the cost and running costs of the van itself and public liability insurance which could cost as much as Ђ600. If things go well, you could make between Ђ200 and Ђ400 a day.
Computer Apps: The realisation of the money to be made from computer apps has seen huge growth in the number of companies being set up in this sector. You can set up an app development company cheaply from home but you should consider marketing costs as well as the cost of actually developing the app if you’re not computer programming savvy.
Photographer: The advent of social media has meant that anyone can market their service if they know how to use it right. You’ll need good camera equipment, colour printer and frames. It can be hard to make a good living as a photographer but the trick is spot a gap in the market and spread awareness of your service. But don’t just rely on social media; be prepared to spend money marketing your business too.
