Comments(14) Sub Category:Community,Living,Parenting Posted On: Mar 14, 2012

If home business ideas in India are what you looking for, here you can get ideas to start your work at home.
Whether you live in apartments in India, are a house wife, are a stay-at-home mother or planning to work from home, making money in today’s world is not much a hassle. Everyone is lured by the comfort of lying on a couch and doing something productive.

India has progressed to a large extent in recent times in various fields of activity with plenty of job opportunities available; in such a scenario, a person can work from home in various fields, provided he/she has the required skills. Having an internet connection with a PC has become commonplace in every house. If you are looking for online work, you can either take up freelancing, online ad posting, service or telecalling jobs, and so on. This will also give you enough time to dedicate to your family thereby balancing your work & family life.

One can easily balance the everyday schedule if he/she learns to manage time, and set a goal for each day. House wives, mothers with small children, senior family members and handicapped persons can take up a job while sitting at home. Home based jobs can also be taken up as a part time job. Here are a few ideas regarding home-based jobs:

Home based business Ideas

Product Customization: This type of home-based job has high demand particularly for those who have the required skill sets and experience. Various products are customized as per the customer’s needs. Customizing products is one of the chief means of delivering customer service to gain a competitive advantage. This technique also helps in gaining a large amount of profit rather than just marketing the product. One of the most powerful ways of this business is product configuration and reducing the delivery time of products. This service also caters to instant customer queries and inquiries. Products like drinkware, photos, wall art, clothing, T-shirts, kids wear, accessories, jewellery, wall art, upholstery, fabrics, stationeries and more are customized based on various themes.

Apparel designing/boutique: This is one of the major home based businesses carried out by various women. Stitching, knitting, weaving, embroidery and other apparel designing jobs can be done from home. Also, one can take up the tie-dye home based job, in which a cloth piece is tied with a string and dipped into colourful dyes or vice versa, to get a beautiful pattern. One can also start up a boutique at home and sell the attires and other handmade accessories. Many housewives who are trained in fashion designing initiate their own boutiques. There are arrays of art and craft businesses which can be taken up from home. You can earn a large sum by making a lot of commodities right at your home with the use of raw materials.

Playschool: A major portion of house mothers opt for initiating their own play schools at their home or at an appropriate place. Opening up a play school not only helps a working mother who can leave her child at the crèche, but also helps the child to interact with other children in the same age group and develop his/her personality. Other than opening up a crèche, one can be a baby sitter at an individual’s house while the parent is out working.

Plant nursery: One can start anursery at home by planting plants and growing them to a usable size, after which they can be sold. Nurseries can be opened in the form of retail nurseries and wholesale nurseries. Plants here can be sold for business purposes or commercial purposes. Orders can be taken over phone or via email. All kinds of plants with different growing conditions can be grown in a greenhouse.

Conduct cooking classes: The trend of learning worldwide cuisines has increased and people are eager to learn new cooking styles. Cookery classes can also be conducted online by showcasing videos. Vegetarian, non-vegetarian and fireless cooking can be taught through websites. One can also take up the business of chocolate making where chocolates are made out of different flavours and designed in various shapes and sizes.

Home based service business ideas: Home business such as home-based service business or commission based business, marketing, real estate service, service for paying bills such as Internet, water, electricity bill etc.

Summer camps: Having a summer camp at one’s home is one of the easiest ways of earning a large sum.

Every parent enrols their child for various trainings. Summer camps are in great demand, as there are children of various age groups attending them. This activity benefits both the guest and the host. One can plan various activities and themes beforehand in order to make it a success.

If you’re trained in beauty courses it will not be a hassle to open a beauty parlour at your home or in a convenient place. One can also offer a professional music/ dance classes at home. Setting up a gym or having aerobic/yoga classes is also a perfect home-based business idea.
