Good business ideas for small Towns

16 Marketing Ideas For Re-using Derelict Space

Do you live in a rural area or small town and you are looking for the best business to start? Do you live in a small community in which there are little chances of long-term survival for any business? Well, truth is, there are still various ways for you to make money in such places; notwithstanding the limited opportunities. Below are 25 rural business ideas you can engage yourself with in small towns.

Starting a business in a small town has its upsides. Firstly, smaller capital and lower overhead is required to start business. And secondly, it’s easier to organize a business in a small town where people know each other. It is a known fact that the economy of rural areas is not as buoyant as urban areas yet, some die hard individuals are still running profitable businesses from such rural areas. Also, urban areas do offer better infrastructure and equipment than what you would see in rural areas. Rural areas are known to have their own restrictions, and if you carefully look, they also have a lot of advantages than urban areas. It is these advantages you need to focus on, be satisfied with the available ones within you and then make the most out of them.

There are some businesses that can be started only in rural areas; agriculture for example is one instance. Knowing how to start a business in a rural setting is useless if you don’t have a good business idea. So whatever you decide on, make sure you give it enough thought and effort.

1. Production of Organic Produce

Producing and selling fruits and vegetables that are free from chemicals can be lucrative if done the right way. This is because more and more people are becoming informed health wise. And they are now aware of the health risks of taking foods that are not free of pesticides and chemical fertilizers. So, you can start a local farming business which adopts strictly organic methods to cultivate vegetables, fruits, sauces, and local delicacies. Your business would be a big hit, as people would come from far and near to buy your “safe” products. For this type of business, you can opt to sell produce that are officially labeled organic or still organic with no label. Some people forgo the official label due to the large amount of paperwork involved. Also, the regulations might be too strict or taxing for a start-up company.

Looking for Volunteers Public WiFi Project

I've created a program called the Public WiFi Project that makes it possible for small towns, or even coffee shops to provide free wireless internet. I have some small businessnes that are using it to sell ads on their networks and make money too.
There are three components -
1. Captive Portal - basically a Launch Page
2. Redirect Page
3. Integrated Advertising (check out the demo on our site).
Each of these components involve advertising, so it gives hot-spot owners a way to pay for their system.
