Small scale business ideasComing up with small scale business ideas is easy to do thanks to the Internet. We are talking about ways to run a small business for less money as well as ways to start an online business that anyone can do for little or no money.

1. Autoresponder. This marketing tool runs less than $20 a month and is a great way to keep in touch with customers and prospects for little time and money.

If you have relied on telemarketing, direct mail, employees, a retail store, and other expensive overhead, you will really appreciate using an autoresponder. This is a great way to build any small business.

2. Website hosting. Today you can join a hosting company for around $10 a month. The great thing is you can host as many domain names as you want for this low price.

There are Internet business owners with 10, 20, 100 and even over 1,000 websites hosted for $10 a month. This is a great way to scale down the cost of running a small business online.

Many small businesses still do not have a website. You can start one using a Word Press blog theme. These can be installed with the click of a button and are easy to customize.

If you do not want to mess with that you can find people to do the work for you for at a reasonable price. The Warrior Forum and eLance are 2 good places to go for that.

3. Affiliate marketing. Any small business owner can complement their product offerings by adding affiliate products to it. This offers many advantages even if you already have products you are promoting.

For one thing affiliate programs are free to join. You can find products on just about any niche. You do not need to create a website, just link to the one provided by the merchant.

You could even develop your own ebook and sell it on ClickBank. Use their affiliates and make even more sales while letting them run the affiliate program for you.

4. Home business websites. Programs like The Plug-in Profit Site and My Affiliate Power Site will set you up with a website and newsletter for very little money.

This is a good way to get into the home business niche and not have to do the work to get started. Because of the high demand for this niche you never run out of prospects.

Consider these small scale business ideas. They are easy to implement and can really increase your bottom line.
