I have been collecting a heap of ideas for you creative people in my board on Pinterest.com and if you click right here now you will be able to scroll down through some great pictures that you may like to use for inspiration to make some products at home for your home business.
There are some lovely photos of creative products that I am sure will inspire you.
Marketing Your Products
Making your own products for a home business can be so inspiring, but let us not forget that if you want to make a good income from doing this then you need to be also thinking about your target market.
Not only do you need to work out your target market but you also need to know where they hang out when they are buying. Is it in craft markets, on eBay, on the social sites, or just
where they will be so that you can market your product to them.
Being Creative Does Have Its Drawbacks
Oh-h-h-h, that doesn’t sound too good does it, but I am speaking from the heart. I have had probably 5 small businesses over the years where I followed my creative instincts rather than my head. The businesses were great for a little while but they did not have long term potential either because of my changing circumstances, or the fact that they were flash in the pan type art followings.
So try for your own sake to get past the fact that what you might love doing is not necessarily going to make you money in the long run.
In saying that, you may be able to start doing what you want to do but be mindful of the fact that you need to keep following the market and the trends and keep your creative skills going and making new and unique products.
Whether you sew, garden, do woodwork, or whatever it is follow my Home Business Ideas board at Pinterest where I will keep adding different ideas that I see which could be turned into a home based business such as:
- stressing old furniture for resale
- making unique framed mirrors
- making unique picture frames
- making original hand bags
- original jewelry or clothing
You can see from this list that although they are creative ideas they are also ideas for products that will easily last for a long time and also can easily have minor changes to them to keep up with the trends.
