1. Create newsletters/emails for small businesses
There's a Huge Market For This…It's an untapped area (yet!)…There aren't many people offering it and businesses Need This and Don't have time to create them. Business owner are incredibly busy and they wear multiple hats and usually don't have one or aren't consistent.
Creating newsletters or automated marketing emails to send to their audience is critical for a business but many businesses find it challenging to find the time to create these. Approach or email businesses and offer to create newsletters for them and/or email campaigns. Here's a free course offered on using newsletters and email for businesses: Turn Email Into Gold.

8. Make your own items and have a booth at your local farmer's market
Or, meet a vendor and ask if you can share their booth and offer your wares. They may want a break from sitting at their booth the entire time!

Like to shop? Love to find deals? My good friend is buying low and turning around and selling high…she's learned a lot here at www.ScavengerLife.com. She's having a blast with it!

I attended a local cooking class where a woman has cooking classes in her home.

Join some groups and see what may be a great fit!
19. Flip Products on Amazon
I mentioned books earlier, but that’s only one niche. You can sell pretty much anything on Amazon, so pick something you’re interested in and make money selling it! Imagine getting paid to spend time shopping for toys, health and beauty items, kitchen gadgets, or sports equipment.

Tell them you're interested in making extra income right now and you'd love to represent them and help out the company. Listen to what they say. Business owners and managers love finding people to hire with passion!
21. Offer classes through your local adult lifelong learning programs
People pay for your classes and register through the school district program. The school district lists your class in the community lifelong learning program and markets it for you. I know a woman who offers evening classes on interesting and unique ways to get organized and unclutter your home and life. Through this she picks up side jobs helping people get organized and unclutter. She sells her book and organization materials through this exposure too.
