Top self employed job ideas

If you've run out of self employed job ideas, you're not alone. In today's harsh economic climate, launching a business is tougher than ever. Even established companies are struggling as consumer confidence hits an all time low, so what is a start up company to do?

The key to success is to start small. Investing huge sums of money as capital is a risky strategy, and there's a good chance that you could lose it all. By contrast, by building from the ground up you can test the waters, optimise your business, respond to the needs of your customers and minimise risk.

So what exactly do we mean by starting small? We recommend that, if you're currently working, you continue in your day job until your company has been established. This will give you the breathing space you need to make logical decisions, take your time and build a solid foundation without rushing to bring in income.

Dedicate around 15 hours per week to research for your business. The success or failure of your business was largely rely on how good your research is. You might also wish to consult experts or conduct surveys as part of this research - leave no stone unturned.

Next, test the waters with a small scale advertising campaign. The internet is perfect for this. You can use tried and tested methods for launching online businesses, like eBay. Take your time and learn the ropes before you invest serious money.

Patience is required - but it will be worth it in the long run!
