Start a "How-To" Business
You don’t necessarily need a totally new, original idea to start a new business. If you have any talents whatsoever, you can create your own brand of how-to videos on the web.
Sites like Metacafe.com, Monkeysee.com, Wonderhowto.com, Expertvillage.com and more are booming on the web with how-to videos that are getting millions of views. People are always intrigued to learn how to pick a good diamond to how to make your own air conditioner, and these sites are banking on people’s interest in these topics to drive traffic. And the best part? If you make videos that reel in the viewers, some of these sites will pay you for your efforts.
So if you’re really good at folding clothes, building World War II replica battle scenes or sending messages by carrier pigeon, you may want to turn the camera on yourself and get your business started. [The New York Times]
