Home Business Ideas – Planners

work at home

Are you currently searching for a home based business idea that you can pursue? Sometimes the hardest part of doing something is getting started. Once you’ve found that great idea, your business can take off running. Here are some options for home based businesses that work well and do not require staff, can have flexible hours, be part-time or full-time and have little or no start up costs.

1. Party Planner – Organize birthday, anniversary, baby-showers or other family oriented parties and events. Choose party themes and decorate the event. Set up the location, menu and hire catering.

2. Wedding Planner – Weddings are a big undertaking and require tremendous amounts of planning. From the location, the food, stationary, the dress, flowers and music, the list goes on and on. Sell your services to a bride-to-be and help her plan her big day. If you have planned your own wedding, you have previous experience and once you have the process down you can do the same thing over and over again.

3. Event Planner – Organize business or corporate group events. Book concerts, speaking engagements, conventions, or other entertainers for large scale publicity. More suited to someone with previous marketing experience and who has corporate contacts or ability to make deals with hotels and other venues for discounts. Usually you can sell your services promising that the cost of your service will be recouped in the savings that you can offer. Once you develop a network in one industry you can get new business based on the success of your events and during the events themselves.

4. Scavenger Hunt Planner – a very focused niche industry that you can offer to both business and family style get-together. If you are internet savvy you can also offer online scavenger hunts as a way to promote websites.
