131. Provide personal hair-dressing, massage, nail-make-up or face-make-up at-home-service - Make $5,000+ per month
Here is a brilliant idea to make $50 per hour, (only 4 hours per day, that's $200 per day!), without the need for investment:
You provide hair-dressing, personal massage, nail-make-up or face-make-up service at people their homes for $50 per hour.
How many older people and young people don't have the time to go to the hairdresser or don't like to visit and wait as a customer 30 min - 1 hour to be serviced? Time is money! + Fuel costs to drive to the saloon...
You go and visit them and charge them $50 per hour...
You don't need a saloon, (so no need to pay for rental space), you only need to distribute flyers in the mail boxes of the people (1,000 flyers per day, gives you 20 customers per day, at 2% response rate), you offer a first-time discount of up to 50%...
Then for business men/women, you turn it into a business with a website (clients pay on on delivery, no need for credit card), so if a hairdressing woman/men or make-up artist (nails/face) or massage therapist does at least 4 clients per day at $50 per hour, you split the revenue 50-50, so you make $100 of revenue per worker per day (of the $200 revenue per day), 10 (female) workers and you make $1,000 per day or $20,000 per month!
To make the flyer mailing more successful, you:
1) focus on the "rich" neighborhoods
2) use condominiums blocks/complexes (so you deliver 30-50 flyers per block/complex), like condominiums on South Beach, Miami or Beverly Hills, LA, or coast-condominiums where the rich have their place...
3) you have other people deliver the flyers, pay them $50 per day to post at least 1,000 flyers per day at mailboxes by foot or (motor)bike (during the day, evening, or after-work), as you know 1,000 flyers gives you a 2% response rate or 20 customers, maybe 50-80% of them returning customers (so you build your client base), at $50, thus you make $1,000 on 1,000 flyers delivered...especially if you offer a first-time discount of 50% on the flyer...
This is the future! Hairdressing at-home-service, massage at-home-service, make-up (nails, face) at-home-service! People don't have time to visit the hair saloon anymore, neither do you like to go out and wait in line as a customer, and you rather like to stay at the comfort of your home and being offered hair dressing, etc at home when the time fits you! Even on Sundays...or after work!
Pet sitting for $1,000 per month: Similar to babysitting, pet sitting is a great idea because lots of people have pets and they want to know they are being watched by someone reputable when they leave town. My neighbor just paid $40 per day for someone to stop by twice a day to walk & feed their dog and check on the cat. It probably only took an hour or two max per day, so that’s conservatively a $20 per hour rate. Watch one household of pets per day for thirteen days per month, and you’ll have an extra $520 in your pocket! If you can line up several clients in the same area to maximize your time, you’ll earn that extra cash with even fewer hours worked.
Personal trainer for $1,000 per month: If you have a passion for fitness and exercise, then you might consider moonlighting as a personal trainer outside of your regular job. In doing so, you’ll not only keep yourself more active, but empower other people to get in shape. Best of all, you might do pretty well financially. Personal trainers earn an average of $50 per hour, but some can easily charge up to $100. To become a certified trainer, you’ll need to go through a course which will not only require some of your time, but also, your money. But if you’re willing to make the investment, it could pay off in the long run.
Mow lawns for a side hustle for $1,000 per month: Mowing lawns can actually be a quite profitable business. I know of a few people who constantly have mowing jobs. They make somewhere around $30 to $50 per lawn and do around 20 to 30 lawns a week.
If you're already doing lawns, then there may be other services that you may be able to add as well. You could also clean gutters, do Spring or Fall yard cleanups, garden, and more.
There is one drawback though. Depending on where you live, there may not be grass all year-long, which means that there might be a period of around 6 months where you don't have any work. Usually during this time though, many lawn companies switch to being snow-related companies – such as shoveling snow or plowing snow.
Become a house cleaner for $1,000 per month: In my area, I find that reasonably-priced house cleaners are hard to come by. Using a maid service is not an affordable option for many people, especially stay-at-home-moms with limited incomes. So if you can set a rate below a standard cleaning crew rate (I was quoted $85 per hour for a two-person cleaning crew) and do a good job, you will have plenty of work.
Babysitting for $1,000 per month: If you love kids, then babysitting on nights and weekends is a good way to beef up your bank account. Depending on where you live and the job in question, you might earn up to $20 an hour watching other people’s children. Granted, you’ll need to be willing to give up a decent chunk of your personal downtime to hit the $1,000 mark on a monthly basis, but think about it this way: Babysitting often means sitting on somebody else’s couch while children are asleep. And really, that’s not so hard. Just be aware that some families will want you to become CRP-certified before hiring you. If so, you’ll need to complete a brief course, but a non-expensive one at that.
Distribute business cards: distribute 200 business cards to get 20 clients or more. This is cheap marketing!
