When considering new ways to start making some instant cash, the first thing that comes to mind is finding a suitable part-time business you can run from home. Maybe your current job doesn'€™t offer you the financial security you are seeking, or maybe you have come upon some unexpected expenses and are looking for some quick gains.

The biggest advantage to finding a suitable part-time business opportunity is that you can work from the comfort of your own home, in your own time, and it’s up to you to decide just how much you want time and effort you want to invest. Some part-time projects can turn out to be extremely profitable business ideas; the most important thing is that you find the suitable job for you, depending on your hobbies, preferences, and habits.
Here are a few interesting part-time business ideas for those who want feel more financially secure:

1. Start manufacturing home-made perfumes and cosmetics

The cosmetics industry is under continuous development and 2013 will be a profitable year for those who manufacture and sell home-made, organic products. More and more people are turning to organic products, ever since the concern for the toxicity of mainstream cosmetics has been brought to public attention.
Even though you may think that not many people are “educated” to purchase organic products yet, this trend will surely catch on.  That means that starting your own handmade cosmetics company can bring you substantial profit in the years to come.
You can manufacture the products in your free time, start selling them to friends and acquaintances, then start marketing your brand wisely and actually create a customer base. Word-of-mouth and online marketing are the most efficient promotional strategies in this day and age, and the best part is that they are (almost) free of charge.

2. Start manufacturing home-made Christmas decorations

Since Christmas time is near and people everywhere are looking for fresh new ideas to decorate their homes, this part-time business could turn out to be quite profitable. You’ll be doing something you love and make some extra cash while doing it. As long as your products are original, trendy and affordable, your business’ success is practically guaranteed. All you need is some clever marketing strategies and you’re all set!

3. Start manufacturing home-made natural soaps

Since we’re talking about home-made, all-natural products, why not try another area of interest, with great potential: natural, home-made soaps. The initial investment is quite low, you can start out in your own kitchen, and the tangible results will not fail to appear – you can start making money right away!

Make sure your natural soaps are unique: try some original, funky designs and colours, and you can even try customizing them according the customer’s wishes. The same principle applies here as well: invest time and effort in promoting your products online, by creating a dedicated e-commerce site, a blog, and a Facebook brand page.
