You can increase your income at home by putting up a business. And so, here are some home-based ideas that need just around PhP 2,000 each in capital.
Do you have a knack for selling and a wide network? Become a dealer of a trusted direct-selling company such as Natasha, Avon, Tupperware and a lot more. Some give you a starter pack containing their products as well as copies of their catalog. Once you have those, you can begin selling to your friends, neighbors, office mates, relatives… The list goes on!
If you’re passionate about making accessories and other arts and crafts, then sell your lovely creations online. Take advantage of social-media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to promote your wares.
Are you musically gifted? Share your talent when it comes to playing the piano, guitar, or some other musical instruments. Offer one-on-one music lessons to the kids in your neighborhood.
Become a Private Tutor
You can also accept tutorial lessons on a specific subject or on all subjects from Elementary to High School.
Accept orders for your specialty dishes and desserts such as macaroni and cheese and cupcakes. The good thing about this is you prepare the food only when an order comes in, so there’s no wastage. Spread the word at your office as well as in your neighborhood.
If you already own a sari-sari store, boost it with an e-loading business (it’s also a great way to draw more customers to your store). All you need are an extra cellphone (no need for a brand new model!) and a SIM card. To get started, inquire at the business centers of major cellphone networks.
