Today we’ll talk about unique business ideas that you can start with little or no money! If your dream is to become a full-time entrepreneur, but you have next to no savings, then don’t worry. You are not alone!
Let’s get started!
Start a course.
Creating and selling an online course is one of the most lucrative methods to make money online. If you know something about a particular topic, why not develop courses that teach others? Of course, you can do this by yourself or get others to help like your friends and family.
The greatest thing about having a course is that you only need to create it once, and you can keep selling it repeatedly for years.
Selling a course is also a business idea you can start with little or no money! You can develop the course yourself, record it using your webcam, and upload it for free on a site like Udemy.com to start earning money from day one!
Later, when you start earning a nice little passive income from your course, you can invest some money into improving it by hiring professional video-makers to help you create higher-quality courses. Create your very own website and even a mobile app for your classes.
This is such a fantastic business idea to start because you can pick any topic you desire. Do you know how to play the guitar? Teach others what you’ve learned and
~Create a fitness Course.
Are you a fitness enthusiast with a ton of knowledge about the industry? Why not create your very own fitness course and start making money online today.
All you need to do is film yourself doing specific exercises. Share a workout scheme, maybe a diet plan, and you’ll have yourself an excellent little product to be selling on the Internet for years.
Creating a fitness course is essential to focus on one goal and target audience. For instance, your course can be for women of 50 and above that want to lose weight. This way, you kill the objection “Is this training program right for me?”.
It’s better to have multiple courses with different goals than just one general fitness course.
~Create a photography course.
Photography is another hobby that is quite popular nowadays. If you take great pictures, why not offer a course to teach people how to improve their skills?
There are so many potential customers for this kind of course, everyone from kids to adults could find something to learn in your lessons.
Show your editing skills and upload them on Youtube! This would be an excellent promotion for your course!
~Create an “How to play an Instrument” course.
Know how to play the piano, the guitar, or any other instrument? I’ll bet countless people would love to know how to play one of these instruments as well.
Well… why not help them out and create an online course? Use Youtube or any other social platform to showcase your skills. So they can see what they can learn from you.
~Create a “How to Sell” course.
Knowing how to sell something is a valuable skill that many people don’t have. Do you possess this skill? Then create a course on “how to sell” and become the next sales expert.
For this course, you could go to Quora and answer selling-related questions. Build on your authority and create a course on becoming better at selling.
~An advertising course.
If you know the trade tricks, why not show others too? Create an advertising course and earn a nice income. Niche down to a specific industry (such as fashion, health & beauty, etc.) so that the course will be relevant to more people.
~Create an accounting Course.
If you’re great with numbers, then creating a crash course on bookkeeping could be very profitable for you! There are thousands of small business owners out there who simply hate doing the bookkeeping for their business or company, which means they would jump at the opportunity to learn.
Marketing is another industry with hundreds of billions of dollars spent every year. Not to mention that marketing is the lifeblood for any business or company out there since they can’t survive without it.
Create a course on how to market your business and offer entrepreneurship lessons to create something more comprehensive! You’ll have a massive market for this kind of course, I can assure you.
~Create a cooking course.
Everyone loves food, so why not create a cooking course and make money online? There are plenty of people who would be more than willing to pay for your recipes – I know I’d buy them!
All you would need to do is film yourself while making the dish, take photos of it (or get someone to do that for you), write a course plan, and then upload the content on your website. Easy-peasy!
~Create a knitting course.
Knitting is another trendy hobby nowadays. If you know how to knit, why not teach others the art of knitting?
You could start by offering free lessons on Youtube or other social media platforms. After that, you can create your own website and offer paid content for your potential customers.
Focus on selling knitted products, too, since you’ll have an easier time making sales that way.
This is a unique business idea and is super easy to pull off.
Create a newsletter for a specific niche or topic. You are sending your subscribers a valuable email every week.
All you need to do is collect the email addresses of your potential customers and then send them a friendly email once a week. You can use MailChimp for this purpose, which is entirely free and automatically send emails.
How to make money from it? Well, you could sell ad places or sign up for topic-related affiliate programs.
You need to write 52 emails and add them in an automatic sequence. Now you got yourself a lovely passive income.
Creating a newsletter related to marketing can be a very profitable business idea, as it’s a billion-dollar industry!
Movie reviews are popular among many people, so why not create a weekly newsletter reviewing all the latest movies?
That way, people could get reviews of newly released films within minutes after their release. Plus, you could diversify by adding topics like movie trailers and other kinds of videos too!
If you love to bake and share your recipes, why not create a weekly newsletter with all of the most popular baking receipts?
You could also include cooking tips and other important information related to baking in your newsletter.
Most people that try to stay healthy find it challenging to think of healthy meals.
How great would it be when they can receive new and exciting recipes every week right in their inbox?
You could even include a weekly health update or tips that your audience can easily incorporate into their daily life.
The possibilities are endless!
Gardening is very popular among many people around the world.
Why not create a newsletter with various gardening tips? You could also include weekly schedules with all the most essential chores to have a healthy garden.
Creating a newsletter related to woodworking could also be a profitable business idea, as many people have their workshops at home or in their garden.
You could provide your subscribers with a new woodworking blueprint with detailed step-by-step instructions every week. So they have enough ideas to choose from to keep them busy with their projects and get better at woodworking.
Create an Instagram page.
It doesn’t surprise you that Instagram has become one of the top social networks, given its many benefits.
So, if you’ve got a talent for taking photos or videos and appealingly editing them, why not create an Instagram page for a particular topic?
You could share your talents with people worldwide interested in similar topics. You can even preschedule content far upfront to keep the daily work intensity low.
Then as an influencer within your niche, you can start working with companies and earn a nice income from it.
~Gaming Instagram page.
Why not create a gaming Instagram page if you love playing games and taking screenshots?
The possibilities are endless! You could share your video gameplay or even personal photos from conventions you’ve been to. Make gaming-related reels.
~Create a beauty Instagram page.
Why not create your own Instagram page about it if you’re into beauty? You could take photos of yourself every day with different makeup or share some before and after reel videos.
You could also share advice-carousels related to makeup, which can come in handy for all your followers.
~Food Instagram page.
Again, cooking and baking are very popular among Instagram users.
If you’re a food blogger or a chef, you should consider creating your own food Instagram page. You could share photos of the dishes and desserts you made – every week with a different recipe to inspire people!
~Travel Instagram page.
Do you travel a lot, or are you looking for an excuse to travel a lot?
Creating a travel Instagram page could be a great business idea, as many people love traveling and might be interested in your photos.
You can choose to share pictures from a specific location or make a globe-trotting scroll where you show the world through your camera’s lens.
Many believe that you need a large budget to start a travel page. However, this doesn’t have to be true.
You could simply start locally. Go to all the tourist areas in your city. Take a photo of every place that you visit. Make an exciting caption about it and then share it on Instagram with your followers. And when you finally have a decent amount of followers on your page, you can start negotiating a discount for stays at resorts and/or hotels in other exotic places.
~Niche meme page.
If you’re into memes and can create or source them, creating a niche meme page could be the best business idea for you.
You could share original content on your Instagram page, created by yourself. Or you can simply find some cool memes about any topic related to your niche. However, don’t make it too general. The more generic the memes are, and your page is, the harder finding a product that many would be interested in. Therefore, hard to monetize.
~Fashion Instagram page.
If you’re a fashion lover, creating a fashion Instagram page is your business idea.
You could share outfit posts and other exciting content about the latest trends in this area. Do some fashion makeovers for yourself and inspire your followers with helpful content. And before you know it, top brands will send you free clothes, which you can then share with your followers!

Browse the web, marketplaces, your own neighborhood, etc., for furniture that is either slightly damaged or just plain ugly. Then, purchase it at a low cost and fix it up, give a new paint job, make it rustic, or even give it a whole new look by adding tile.
Once you have your refurbished furniture, sell the items for triple that you purchase them for! Heck, I’ve seen furniture flippers even 10x the price they bought it for.

Forex is short for foreign exchange, and it’s essentially trading money between two different currencies all over the world. By looking at price movement, supply and demand, and other macroeconomic factors, you can predict which currencies will rise or fall in price.
For instance, if the Euro is heavily outbidding the US Dollar to buy oil from OPEC countries, the Euro will strengthen against the dollar. This allows for huge profits for those who know how to predict these changes correctly. But when them when the price is low, wait for it to go up, then sell them when they are high!
You can make huge profits if you know what you’re doing. The only downside is that it does take some time to understand the dynamics of Forex and how everything works together. It’s a great way to get started with just a tiny amount of money. But you need to be ready to put in the time and effort to learn the ropes before you can start making big bucks.
Rent a room on Airbnb!
If you have an extra room in your house that no one is using, why not try sharing it on Airbnb by becoming an Airbnb host?
Besides being a great way to make some extra income, it’s also an excellent way to meet people. Your guests could be homeowners or just travelers looking for budget accommodation. You can even invite them to meet with locals via the Airbnb community.
Start by renting out your spare rooms, and when you get the hang of it, you can turn it into a real estate business—looking and buying houses in tourist areas to rent them out to people via Airbnb.
You just need to start!
As you can see, there are tons of home business ideas you can start with little to no money. The hard part is just getting started and gaining momentum. Once you get that first sale or customer referral, then things will start snowballing into the business of your dreams! Just remember to pick something you’re passionate about so it doesn’t feel like work!
