Hobby Ideas - Ways To Make Money From Your Hobby brought to you by: "Why Start A New Business When You Can Make Money With Your Favorite Hobby?" http://www.hobbydollars.com Hobby Ideas - Ways To Make Money From Your Hobby Hobby Ideas - Ways To Make Money From Your Hobby Finding profitable business ideas isn’t too difficult. It’s finding a small business idea in an area that would interest you that can be the challenge. Or, at least, so many people think. But making money from your hobby is easier than some people might realize. Who wouldn’t love to make money doing something they love and are passionate about? But most are convinced it isn’t possible. (Sort of the way you might be convinced something that tastes really good couldn’t possibly be good for you.) However, the truth is that, whatever your hobby, there are probably dozens of things you can do to make money in that area. If you spend your spare time making handmade crafts, love pets, or have a passion for photography, here are some profitable business ideas you should consider. Handmade Crafts Whether you make quilts, candles, or jewelry, there are places online where you can sell your handmade crafts. EBay might be the first site you think of, but there is another alternative. Like EBay, Etsy.com is an online marketplace. However, this site specializes in homemade crafts just like the ones you make. With this site, you can have your crafts in front of countless potential new buyers in just hours. If you’re more interested in sharing information than selling your crafts, you can consider giving online workshops. With these classes, students would pay to learn from you via live video. So you can show them exactly how to perform a specific technique, and they can ask questions if something isn’t clear. If you’re camera shy, you can share information another way, and that’s via a mailing list. People would sign up to receive your free messages. Once or twice a week, you’d send them valuable information in the form of tips, tricks, advice, and where they can get certain stuff for free. You would also recommend products that would help them improve their craft. And, because you are an affiliate, anytime someone on your mailing list buys the product through your affiliate link, you would earn a commission. ©Copyright 2010 http://www.hobbydollars.com Page 2 Hobby Ideas - Ways To Make Money From Your Hobby Pet Care and Breeding If you are a pet lover, there are probably few things you would enjoy more than being able to spend more time around pets, and making money at the same time. And these profitable business ideas will help you do that. People love their pets. And if they are going to be away, whether for a week or just over night, they might not want to leave their pet alone. But, for some pet owners, a kennel isn’t a much better option. They’d be more than happy to pay you to look after their pets, whether at their home or yours. Do you have any pet grooming experience? If so, why not start a door-to-door grooming service. In order to avoid the inconvenience of bundling their pet into the car and driving them to a groomer’s, they would pay you to come to their home and groom their pet on the premises. For many animal lovers, being a breeder would be the ultimate dream job. And you can start your own breeding business. There are even some great software programs available that will walk you step-by-step through the process. Photography There is no shortage of profitable business ideas for photographers. And here are just three of them. 1. The easiest way to make money from your photography hobby is to sell your photos at a stock photo site. At these sites, people who need a photograph for a particular project (whether they are writing a paper for school, putting together an advertising campaign, or creating an online newsletter) can buy the rights to use your photographs. 2. If you’ve always dreamed of seeing your photographs on posters, t-shirts or mugs, Zazzle can make that dream a reality. At Zazzle, you can turn your pictures into different kinds of merchandise, which is then made available for sale. And, when someone buys one of your products, you get a cut of the profits. 3. Finally, if you have a passion for photography, you have probably bought a lot of stuff to make yourself a better photographer. All sorts of tools and equipment. Books and manuals. Computer programs. ©Copyright 2010 http://www.hobbydollars.com Page 3 Hobby Ideas - Ways To Make Money From Your Hobby You name it, you’ve bought it. Well, you can make money from your experience with these items by creating a review website. On the site, you write reviews about the various products you’ve tried. Along with the reviews, you would also put AdSense ads on the site. And whenever someone clicked on one of those ads, you would get paid. When it comes to profitable business ideas involving hobbies, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Whatever you like to do in your spare time, you can find a way to turn it into a profitable business. And, before you know it, you can be doing something most people only dream of. Making money doing something you love. Want to learn more?
