Get Rich at Home Without Any Product Inventory

Here's one of the best work from home ideas. If you're serious about making money, anyone can do this and many have. This article is more of a concept than it is an exact "how to" article. That's because market's change quickly and people have different passions. I can't tell you exactly what to do because a good idea now could be worthless in a year (or less), but the concept will always be successful.

The concept is basically being the middle man for other businesses. If you can market, you can sell anything. Why not sell for another company and let them do all the work? This is different from affiliate programs because they're set at 10 percent, or whatever. You could make up to 150 percent with this concept.

I got this idea years ago (maybe 20 years ago) when I saw a guy on the show 60 minutes who felt there was a need in the flower market for home delivery. He got local extension phone numbers relative to each major city and started advertising in the yellow pages nationwide with big ads for his flower shop (and he doesn't even own a flower shop). His big professional ads made his company look like they were the foremost experts on flowers.

He then got the yellow pages for all of the major cities where he was advertising and put al of that cities local flower shops in a database. Then he called all of the flower shops to get their prices and their delivery area. When people called to place an order after seeing one of his yellow page ads, he quickly looked up which flower shops would deliver to them and which offered the best price. He took the order and added 25 percent to it for his own profit. He then passed the order off to the local flower shop where the customer lived.

This guy started this business by himself (as a one man operation), but the story on 60 minutes showed him with four workers in a room in his house, taking orders full-time. Some people reading this article may say, "Wow, that's a lot of work." It is. Making multi-millions is VERY RARELY real easy work. At the time of the story the guy made over $20 million dollars profit in a few years. I don't know what happened to this guy's business when it was all said and done, but even if he closed up shop the next year after I heard about him, he already banked $20 million in a few years, enough to never have to work again if he chose not to.

How could this guy without a flower shop, never even seeing a flower, be one of the most profitable flower shop businesses in the country? Answer: MARKETING! Anyone who looked in the yellow pages could have ordered from the same store he did, and would have paid less money. But people don't waste their time calling the little free one line listings at the end of every category. You know the ones, company name followed by phone number. Why should anyone call them? Half of those companies aren't even in business anymore.

People start with the big ads first then work their way down. And this guy had a real BIG AD which stated basically that his company had everything you could ever want in terms of floral arrangements, and fast delivery to anywhere in town. Once again this goes to show you the power of marketing. He's taking someone's order and adding money to the bill, then calling the flower shop down the street from the customer that just called. Genius!

I did this with a website design business early on in my internet career. I was pretty good at website design, but why waste my time doing the work. So I marketed the website design services, secured the jobs for $2,000 each then got another company to make the websites for $500 each. I made $1,500 for just taking an order! I made sure the websites were GREAT by my standards, but I didn't do the actual graphic or coding work.

I also did the same thing with a printing business, years ago before the market got saturated. There was a real cheap local printer I knew of who had great prices on flyers and business cards. Way cheaper than anyone online. So I opened a printing shop. Flyers and business cards - Fast and cheap! The orders were small and light so they could be shipped around the country. I made a couple grand a week from this business, but it ended about two years after it started when 50 new print shops hit the net, and cut up the pie.
