Top Business Ideas – How To Earn Up To $1.2 Million a Year!

In this article I want to talk to you about one of the top business ideas I have come across recently, that you can do in your spare time and that will be a great new source of income for your family.
The idea is so simple that even a child could run it, but for me the very best business ideas are those that are so straightforward leaving no road blocks in that way between you and mountains of extra cash;-)
Sound good?
So all you need to do is put in a small investment to purchase one bouncy castle.
If you’re wondering how one simple bouncy castle is going to be the key to your riches and financial freedom it’s very simple.
1. You get your bouncy castle for around $999.
2. You advertise – think local fairs, kids parties, corporate events, playgrounds and many more.
3. You rent out your bouncy castle for a flat fee or charge by the person, per hour.
4. Most bouncy castles can fit about 20 kids on them.
After the castle has gone out to it’s tenth event you will have paid for it and be making pure profit!
Happy days…
This is so simple and the key to really turning this into a business that brings in a lot of cash is being able to scale to have many castles or even other large toys. You will also need a staff of reliable people who can run the events for you.
Once things get rolling word will get around that you’re the best kids party organizer in town and you will have more work than you can handle.
There are a few things you must make sure you have:
* The bouncer itself
* Air blower
* Repair kit
For me this is one of the top business ideas I know because you can replace bouncy castles with anything and the business idea is still sound.
People would also like to take a ride in a classic car for instance.
I’d love to hear how you get on with this, if you work on this for a year or two you can get up to that $1.2 Million a Year.
Good luck.…

It can also be anything in between. You just have to select a product or service and build a website and advertise and market that site until you start seeing traffic.

Planning For Success With A Home Business

At this time of year we tend to look back at our Internet Marketing activities and consider what we have achieved. More importantly we need to think about where we are going and what we will achieve in the future. We have all heard that old chestnut about your glass being half full or half empty, that is just a play on words, my simple opinion is that if you have a negative approach you will have negative results.
Over the last year internet marketing has been a bit more of a challenge with the worldwide credit situation, not helped by the banks and financial institutions that we normally depend upon who have largely been responsible for creating this situation. If you have a home business already or maybe considering a home business idea then my advice would be to use to use this time to re-evaluate your existing business or your business plan and to get ready for the busy period in January.
If you own a website and/or a blog then why not use this time to write a few more articles or check out other advertising resources that you may find beneficial or maybe re-design your site to make the content more appealing. Search engine spiders are always looking for new content and that will increase your page rank so it is always a good time to check out your site to see if it is optimised correctly for your keywords. Even with the best home business ideas it is important not to underestimate the power of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) as it is fundamental to your site success.
You can have the best and most interesting website in the world but it is nothing without visitors. If you don’t have a website then that is OK, it just means that you advertise using different methods like classified ads, ezine ads, offline adverts, word of mouth, leaflets etc, it’s all good and you are only limited by your own ambition.
This business is traditionally quiet at this time and in some ways I am happy that it is because our lives are so busy busy busy that it is only right that we share a bit of quality time with our friends and loves ones and re-charge our batteries. In closing may I just wish you a happy and peaceful Christmas and a very prosperous 2011 and as always I am here to help if you need me.
best regards,

Securing a Business Loan in Rough Economic Times

The turn of the century saw unequaled economic times. Money was cheap and the property markets were humming. As was inevitable, things turned around quickly and the end of the decade saw a financial hangover that hit every part of society. So, the question is can you get a business loan in these rough economic times? Yes, so long as you go about it correctly.
Banks and other lending institutions are extremely risk averse in the current economic state and one would have to know how to approach a bank correctly in order to secure a loan. In general, the following guidelines will bolster your chances of successfully applying for a loan at your bank.
Come up with a solid business plan – Create a detailed business plan that will provide as much information as possible. There is no point in writing up a one page plan which the bank will not even look at. You will need to support your estimated business earnings with facts and a lot of research. Also, be prepared to follow up on your business plan. Many banks these days interact with the loan applicant to seek clarifications on their business plan. They might even ask for a revision or a resubmit and you have to be prepared to do that if you want to stand a chance of getting your loan approved. Also, it is important not to get personal with the bank manager who might seem snooty or untrusting. They are just doing their job and will ask you blunt questions about your business and you and you should answer them objectively. Know your numbers and business forecast inside out.
Be realistic with your loan requirements – Some business owners have the bad habit of asking for more than what they need. This will greatly reduce the chances of getting a loan. If you are however realistic and only request a loan for the amount you need, the bank will appreciate your straightforwardness and integrity which will of course improve your chances of getting a loan.
Patience – In today’s economy, it takes patience to get a bank loan. You will have to be persistent as well. Don’t lose your cool with a couple of rejects as you will probably have to go through a few rejected applications before finally getting the loan that you need. Persistence will pay off, so stick to it.
Angel Investors – if the banks aren’t biting, consider alternative investors. Venture capital funds are not great sources at the moment for funding, but angel investors can still be. Make sure to check them out.
Can you get a business loan in this tough economic environment? Absolutely. The key is to have a vision, back it up with facts and know those facts inside and out before you apply for the funding.…

3 Things You Need to Think About Before Starting Your Home-Based Business

For many people, starting a home-based business seems like an easy option. They think that they just have to set up some sort of website and they will make a fortune. They think that they can just roll out of bed, turn on the computer and their profits will just start rolling in. Unfortunately it is just not that easy. A great deal of thought needs to go in to starting your own business.
If you want to work for yourself here are three things that you need to think about.
Will your business idea keep you motivated? There are an infinite number of business ideas available to you if you want to start your own business at home. You need to make sure that you come up with an idea that will keep you motivated. You need to make sure that your business idea will encourage you to get out of bed every day. You should make sure that you start a business in an area that you are interested in.
Do you have the skills to sustain the business? When starting your own business you also need to take in to account your skills. You need to take a realistic assessment of what you are good at and set your sites accordingly. If you aren’t very good at writing you may not want to become an eBook writer. If you aren’t very good at maths, you should probably not set up a bookkeeping business. You need to work out what you are good at and start a business that is related to your skills.
Will people pay for what you want to provide? The final thing that you need to consider is whether people are going to pay for the service or product business that you are starting. It is not a business if you do not make any sales. Don’t waste your time if you are not going to make any money you need to make sure that you do your research before starting your business so that you know that you are building a business from where you will make money.
I am not trying to dissuade you from starting your own business. I am all for you starting your own business. Home-based businesses keep the economy going. I just want to make sure that you are being realistic in your expectations so that you are less likely to fail.…
