Find below the additional 10 best home based business ideas that you can choose from for your home based business.


1. Mobile Games

Top on the list of the 10 best home based business ideas is mobile games. People everywhere, young and old, simply love games.

If you used to think that the playing of mobile games is limited to children alone, then you are wrong. Full-grown adults love playing mobile games too. So, it would seem that as far as mobile games are concerned, people never grow up.

Some people can even play games on their mobiles all day long – sometimes even forgetting to take their bath or have their meals due to being engrossed in the games.

Personally, when I am not working, l love playing mobile games myself. The “real football” is the mobile game that I love playing the most.


It is not a passion for me, but simply a means of relaxation when I am not working (which is almost all the time). But, all the same, l love and enjoy playing games on my mobile.

Therefore, setting up a home based business targeted at people who play mobile games can be a huge success on the internet. The only drawback to this idea is that people who you target will be busy playing their mobile games and may never have time to visit your site!

Consequently, you could focus on internet games as a viable alternative.

2. Food Recipes / Catering Services

Perhaps the greatest idea among the 10 best home based business ideas is food recipes. Even if people have no money to engage in other activities, they will always eat. So, this could form the basis of your home based business.

Additionally, you could also combine catering services to the cooking and food recipes services which you offer in your home based business.

Hence, your home based business could encompass the teaching of various food recipes and also the provision of outdoor catering services for special occasions like weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and so on.

Your expanded food recipes / catering services home based business idea could also include baking and supply of various snacks to local businesses in your area.

This is another best home based business idea. If you already operate a small catering business offline, then you have a perfect idea for your home business.

If that is the case, you could give it an online presence and target internet users in your local area, state or country.

3. Planning a Wedding / Wedding Decorations

The third idea that is considered here of the 10 best home based business ideas is planning a wedding. People get married every day. They also look for information on how to make their wedding as great and memorable as possible.

Consulting services / outsourcing is another great idea for your home based business.
