You know, certain businesses exist, that you can also start, that require very little skill or money to do, and can easily get you to a point where you’re making well over $1,000 per day with these business ideas.
In this article, I’m going to run through seven of those businesses, and I know for a fact that all of these businesses if you take them seriously and put in the effort can change your life forever. I know people who are doing them and making well over one thousand dollars per day doing them.

1. Selling Pallets
This first business is probably the most fascinating because no matter where you live even if you live in a small town, most of you reading wouldn’t even notice that this highly profitable business exists.
You see, every day businesses everywhere get truckloads of new products, materials, or just things that they use to operate their business. And more often than not, these things are being delivered on seemingly useless wooden pallets, and these palettes are often seen as just useless junk to most businesses. In fact, they’ll often just call the city dump to come and pick up these pallets to throw away.
What if I told you that in most cases you could go and pick up these pallets completely free and then resell them for thousands of dollars? These pallets could go six, or seven the previous years, and now you could get $12 to $15 for these types of pallets. If you’re out in California, it could even be up to like $20 per pound.
Huge Potential For Free
I don’t know about you guys but I personally always see these pallets just stacked everywhere, especially behind business buildings. Little did most of us know that these pallets can sell between $10 and $15 per pallet to other businesses that need them. This may not sound like a lot of money but when you consider that many businesses have stockpiles of 100 to 300 of these pallets every other day or even sometimes every day, these $10 to $15 pallets can start adding up fast.
And folks, just keep in mind this is just one business. You know if you were able to get multiple businesses on your regular rotation, then you’re talking about making potentially tens of thousands of dollars per day.
2. Real Estate Photography
Another business that you can start is a real estate photography business, or just like any photography business. In general, photography is one of those services that I think will always exist and there are a ton of people just making life-changing money with this business. I mean we’re talking one thousand, two thousand plus dollars per day just taking pictures.
This amount of money is not unusual for a photography business especially depending on the type of Market that you’re targeting. For example, real estate photography can be a very lucrative business because real estate agents will pay photographers to take professional pictures of their listings for a few hundred dollars.
Taking these pictures, especially once your practice will only typically take you a few hours. Imagine you’re able to spend eight hours per day just taking pictures for four different houses, I mean we’re talking about potentially making $1,200 or more per day.
The best part is that getting started isn’t all that difficult, there are a ton of videos on YouTube that can walk you through the entire process of starting a business like this, just watch one of these videos, don’t overthink the process, and just start.
3. Social Media Marketing Agency
This next business idea is one that I truly am convinced anybody can start, it requires very little skill, it can be started for virtually zero dollars, and it’s also highly scalable.
Just like with any agency, all you’re doing is providing a service for a client, and specifically with this type of agency all you’re doing is just managing a company’s social media marketing strategy. And that’s just a fancy way of saying that you’re managing their ads.
Typically this is done on Facebook through Facebook ads, but it can also be done through Google ads, Pinterest ads, whatever, essentially all you’re doing first is just deciding on the type of client that you want to work with. Do you want to work with doctors, dentists, lawyers, car mechanics, bakeries, landscaping companies, etc?
The first step is to decide on your Niche, like what clients are you going to be targeting. Step two is to find the clients, and you can literally do this by just going to Upwork and typing in social media marketing into the search bar, and then just submitting proposals.
Once you’re able to start signing on companies that pay you two, three, four, or five thousand dollars per month consistently to manage their social media ads, then the rest is history. And you can start to scale this business by subcontracting some of your clients to other contractors.
For example, let’s say that you sign a client at $3,000 per month, you could easily go and hire somebody and just pay them a fraction of that price to run and manage that client’s ads and then you can just collect the difference.
4. Web Development Agency
I work as a web development freelancer apart from blogging for a lot of different agencies, and basically, all of these web development agencies would just contact me to build entire websites for them.
What they would do is they would pay me between 15% and 20% of the entire contract’s worth. Let’s just say for example that they signed a client at $20,000, what they would do is they would subcontract me and pay me between $3,000 and $4,000 to build this entire website, and then they would just collect the $16,000 difference even though I was the one building the entire website.
When I finally found out that this was happening, I stopped and thought to myself “wait a minute, I’m just gonna go start my agency and do the same thing, get contracts, hire Freelancers, pay them between 15% and 20% of the entire contract’s value, and then just pocket the difference for myself”.
Here’s the thing, you don’t even have to know how to build websites to do this business successfully, it’s no different than you running a social media marketing agency and just outsourcing the work to other contractors. You’re simply the one finding the deals and then outsourcing the actual building of the website to somebody who knows what they’re doing.
What’s Even Crazy
The crazy part is that a lot of the owners of these agencies didn’t even know how to build websites, they were just the ones finding new deals and then outsourcing that work to somebody else. They’re getting five, six, and seven new clients per month all paying between $10,000 and $20,000 plus to build a new website.
Oftentimes a lot of these agencies were able to convert these clients, these one-time clients into long-term clients that pay them you know three, four, five thousand dollars per month to manage their social media ads for them.
And I can tell you right now this may sound like a lot of money but for many businesses, this is just a business expense for them that they can write off on their taxes.
When I have to go and buy some new equipment for like you know $5,000, or if I have to go buy a plane ticket to travel for business, I’m not thinking about how much money I’m spending because it’s just the cost of doing business. And I know that my spending that money now is inevitably going to make me even more money in the future, so I’m not thinking about it.
Businesses are willing and able to spend money, and for you, this is life-changing money that you need to get in front of, take all of these business ideas that we talked about, and easily earn you over one thousand dollars per day if you just put in the work necessary to get these things up and running.
I know this for a fact because I’m currently living that reality right now and you’ve got what it takes to do the same thing. Don’t be afraid just start taking action. You guys are amazing every single one of you reading, I mean that believe in yourself and understand that you can accomplish whatever you want in this life. Peace and Happy Hustling!
