7 Profitable Business Ideas for All Time By Nate O'Brien


Hey everyone welcome back to the channel
so I haven’t made a video like this
in quite a while but today we’re talking
about some different business ideas that
I’ve been thinking about for a while and
I wanted to share with you because I
there’s a tremendous amount of
opportunity in each one of these
seven business ideas that you could use
this year
now a couple of quick notes here first
of all I don’t really make a lot of
these videos anymore
because I feel like the whole industry
of how to make money just got really scammy
with people trying to sell all of their
courses so I don’t really want to be
associated with that I don’t make a lot
of these videos anymore
but nonetheless these are some cool
ideas that I’ve been thinking about for
a while that
I did really want to share with you so
if you are new here make sure you do hit
that subscribe button and
I guess the like button if you want to
do that as well
oh and also just watch out for like the
50 fake NATO brain’s
like scamming people everywhere I don’t
know whatever I’m not going to sell you
anything okay
just remember that uh now the first
business idea that I was thinking about
you know I actually really see a lot of
opportunity here and there’s no
cost required with this is some type of
influencer management
so here’s the best way to explain this
and why this can be such a great
uh first of all there is no cost
associated with this you don’t have to
have any startup costs
but when somebody like a youtuber for
example me I guess
I count as a youtuber um when I get
brand deals when a company wants to
sponsor me
I don’t really want to spend the time
talking to them and negotiating with
them I’d rather spend my time working on
other projects and making
making more videos for example so I end
up working with a manager
now this manager basically just
facilitates deals they
they put together brand deals and
sponsors so they work with both the
influencers and with
the brands of the companies and they
bring them both together and then they
take a piece of the pie here they take a
cut anywhere
traditionally between 10 and 20 of these
sponsor deals
that a lot of influencers do so you can
imagine if uh somebody’s getting
twenty thousand dollars for a YouTube
video if you are
uh an influencer manager then you could
get a ten percent cut of that uh twenty
thousand dollar deal and you could get
two thousand dollars
for just working with both the
influencer and the brand now I actually
found this actually
really I don’t think is very difficult
to start I work with a couple of
different managers
and they bring me deals and I just take
the best ones that that i
want to personally work with um but i
think anybody can start it but i
basically just reaching out to a lot of
and then reaching out to brands and just
putting them in contact with each other
and managing those deals
maybe I don’t know if we’re going to
make a more in-depth video on this but i
really do think
there’s such a great potential for
something like this and it doesn’t just
have to be youtubers it could be for
tick tock influencers
or various different types of
influencers as well just remember
putting those two
together the brands and the influencer
connecting them and you can end up
taking a cut from that and I think it’s
a pretty great business model okay
the next one uh is going to be for
people who are a little bit more
you’re gonna find that within these
seven different ideas some of them are
going to be
ones you can just lay in bed and make
money and others are going to be a
little bit more physical
but I wanted to include both here
because I know some people would rather
just work with their hands
so the next one I think is really fun it
is converting vans
so there’s been this really big trend
for van life that I’ve seen recently in
the past year or two
especially and so a lot of people want
to live in vans
I know my friend did this a couple of
years ago he
bought a van and then he fully did a
full conversion on it he built out the
inside he put a bed and a sink and a
couple other different things in there
but what’s crazy about this is that you
can actually build out vans for other
and make a lot of money from this so for
example here my friend who
bought this van for about some twenty
thousand dollars he could go and sell
his van that he converted
and he could sell that for at least
double the price probably get 45 or 50
000 for that van simply because he
did that full conversion so this is a
really cool idea that i
i think I’ve just been thinking about
for a while because it turns out you
know there’s a lot of people who don’t
know the difference between a hammer and
a screwdriver and so they
can’t convert this van themselves they
can’t turn this into like a little home
so they want to pay somebody else to do
it so if you are skilled with carpentry
or you just have some basic skills with
building things then I would consider
just making it like a small little side
business I know there’s so many people
looking to have somebody else build a
van out for them you know maybe somebody
who lives in New York city
and they’re making a lot of money they
don’t have the tools or the resources to
convert their van so they’ll just hire
you to do it there’s a number of ways to
market this service but um
if you get into that van life area on
YouTube or on social media
you could probably find some clients on
there or maybe just start to buy vans
and convert them and then sell the vans
but really you don’t even need to do
that you can just build them for other
people and not have to really have many
costs associated with that
okay so the third idea is going to be a
monetized newsletter
this is another one that I’ve been
looking at for so long and I honestly
wish I could do this myself but I just
too many other things that I’m working
on right now but I think there’s so much
potential here
is monetize newsletters okay so if you
are familiar with morning brew it’s a
company that sponsored some of my videos
in the past
and this company it’s just an email
newsletter anybody could start
something like this and I think last i
checked they were valued at about 50
million dollars
I’m not sure what the article was I’ll
throw it up on the screen here
but it’s just a basic email newsletter
this started out I think about five
years ago
and they are making so much money by
giving a free newsletter to people who
sign up for it now how does this company
make money how does this newsletter make
uh well they end up getting sponsors and
they do a lot of affiliate marketing
in their newsletter so imagine if you
have a million people reading your
every single morning there’s so much
power and value in that
that you can sell ad spots to different
and so I I would really suggest starting
something like this
once again there’s really no cost
associated with it
maybe you’re gonna have to pay for some
autoresponders for maybe some
some email services um but if you start
off with something like MailChimp using
that to send out emails you can
get I think the first couple thousand
email subscribers for totally free the
problem here could be a little bit labor
intensive uh if you don’t like writing
email newsletters every day could be a
little bit annoying and also it could
take a while to get it going but I still
think it could be one of the best
ideas out there okay now the next one is
going to be
renting out cameras so I know a lot of
photographers and videographers and even
youtubers who might not want to buy like
a new red
camera some of those really expensive
five or ten thousand dollar cameras
uh because maybe they just have one
shoot that they want to do uh or maybe
they just have one project that they
need to
borrow some equipment and so there’s
actually a whole business opportunity
this uh uh different scene here which is
by renting out
equipment especially like cameras or
different types of audio gear
to photographers and two videographers
uh and and four people who
need some type of things like that so um
i I know a couple of people who do this
actually I only really know one person
who does this really really well
there are a couple of caveats here a
couple problems with it but
the cool thing is that you know imagine
you can buy something so you can buy
something for five thousand dollars and
then you’re renting this out multiple
per month for maybe a few hundred
dollars per day and you’re able to
really make a lot of money from this one
physical object that you have
and you could take this same idea of
renting out cameras to
photographers and videographers and you
could apply it to maybe a field that
you’re maybe well versed in uh maybe
something that you have a lot more
knowledge about
um I remember seeing people who would uh
rent out log splitters for a day
uh because you know some people want to
get their own firewood and so they cut
down a bunch of trees on their property
but they don’t have any way to split the
so I would see people rent log splitters
for a hundred dollars a day
and they would rent them out and the log
splitter will only cost them two
thousand dollars to begin with and so
they were able to make their money back
uh only really a couple of months and
then it just really just basically
printed cash for them
so that’s an idea as well just think
about what you have around your house or
something that you’re
already pretty well experienced with
especially maybe what you do
for work or what you do for a job and
then think about the different items
that you could potentially
rent out to people a couple of problems
with this though is that you know you
have to make sure you do this properly
you got to make sure that you have the
you got to make sure you have insurance
um you know because if somebody rents
your camera they drop it
you don’t want to be out of 5 000 you
got to have to
make sure you have some things set up
for that so if you want to explore that
route make sure you
just look into it a lot more because
there are going to be a couple of
caveats there
but I do think it could be a business
that could end up printing you some
money now the next one here is it’s not going
to be some crazy
you know start your own tesla but it’s
one that I
I love including this in my videos i
know it’s march right now
so I don’t know how many people watching
this are actually going to really take
um but mo lawns lawn care it’s
the most simple business model in the
world this is how I paid for
college uh this was one of my first
businesses and it is
the best cash producing business that
anybody especially teenagers if you’re
in high school if you’re in college
you want to make some money this summer
mow lawns you can set it up pretty
you can do some crazy marketing in your
local area craigslist
Facebook you can use a different things
like doing actual posters
around on different billboards and you
can market this service for you know forty
dollars fifty dollars
per lawn and you can get 10 or 20 lawns
you can do those all in a weekend you
can make 500
or a thousand dollars in a weekend by
doing this and I made a video about this
maybe three years ago
on my channel I’m talking about how i
structured this and how I did this
when I was mowing lawns but you don’t
have to reinvent the wheel
to make money and I think sometimes so
many people are going out and just
trying to be the next elon musk they’re
just trying to make
the new amazon and that’s fine you can
do it but I think there’s a lot more potential
for success when we go for simple
business models
of understanding your expenses
understanding uh your potential profits
and just being able to pump cash out from a
simple business
like mowing lawns so I’m always gonna
love that one uh
and and I do think that people should
consider that especially because it’s
march right now
so now is the perfect time to get a lot
of lawn care clients
so the next idea is to edit podcasts
because there are so many podcasts out
there right now
and it feels like everybody thinks that
they’re the next Joe Rogan and they’re
just starting a podcast which is cool
that’s fine
I’m sure there are a lot of next big
up-and-coming podcasters
but why not make money off of those
people who are all starting their
it kind of reminds me of the gold rush
in that saying that
the people who really made money in the
gold rush it wasn’t the miners
it was the people selling the shovels to
all of the miners right so
this is something that you could do with
editing podcasts for
a bunch of different people um I know
that I’ve probably been on maybe
a couple dozen podcasts over the past
year I feel like the
the biggest problem that they seem to
have when I just talk to these people
is they say you know I really wish i
could speed things up by hiring somebody
to edit my podcast episodes for me i
swear I’ve seen at least a dozen people
say that
and they all have that problem where
just take some time to edit so why not
reach out to
a ton of different podcasts and offer to
edit those podcasts for them
for a certain price I don’t know what
would be the good price point you could
set that for yourself
i would suggest probably starting off at
a really low price point and then once
you get a bunch of customers then you
can start
building up that price point to the
point where your schedule is full and
then you can start raising the prices
and that’s kind of how I would go about
doing that but that’s something you can
do from your home as long as you have
a somewhat decent computer and then you
would be able to edit podcasts for
people and you could edit videos YouTube videos
I know a lot of youtubers who are always
looking for video editors as well
and that leads us into the last one
which is also not going to seem like a
revolutionary idea
but I know personally this is where I
pay most of my money from our business
which is just by paying writers so you could do
some basic content writing for blogs
reach out to a bunch of blogs and just
ask them if they need content written
and what they’re offering to pay per
word so I know
that we’ll pay anywhere from six to ten
cents per word
for blog articles sometimes I see people
who are paying
upwards of 20 or 30 or 40 cents per word
for very specific articles
that they need written and you could do
this from literally anywhere
we have a lot of contractors that we
work with who are living out in the
desert somewhere
and they live in vans and they just wake
up in the morning and they might crank
out a couple of articles for us and we
pay them and
it’s a really great business model for
people like that basically freelance
work you’re not going to become a
multi-millionaire off of something like
that but I know
people who pay their bills uh by just
doing some basic writing
for people so especially if you’re
skilled with that I know I’m
not a writer there’s different types of
communicators there’s people who are
great at speaking there’s people who are
great at a visual right they’re able to
create good artwork
and then there’s people who are great
with writing I’m not good with writing
I’m not good with visuals
I’m also not great with speaking but
either way you know
that’s kind of the ideas that I had here
for this video I hope you found some
value I i hope you can run with one of
these or at least maybe be inspired by
one of these
uh and I wish everybody the best of luck
if you end up starting one of these let
me know send me a dm
and of course watch out for all the
scammers as well all right peace out
