There are numerous "Hot Target Markets" emerging from this new marketplace. These are so new that I didn't get many of them down on the list. The question will be; "Are they a flash in the pan or will they continue to mushroom into a great industry conducive for a small business startup? Maybe your friends and family have already given you at home business ideas from their workplace experience.

This is where your research will come into play. Doing research into the existing and emerging industries will help you with your business startup ideas. Just because you like and believe in a product/service doesn't always mean that the product will be profitable. The marketplace could already be saturated with the product/service and it may be slowly declining or going out of style.

A "Target Market" is one that has eager and willing customers wanting and needing your product or service. Finding a niche and filling it is precisely the key. If your at home business ideas can fulfill a customer's need and you have enough customers with disposable income, then you have a great small business startup possibility.

Research and timing is very important for selecting new at home business ideas. Always do your research to find the balance between your heart, skills and marketplace sentiment. Small business startup ideas are only as good as the research behind it.

When thinking of at home business ideas, keep in mind that it must be something you would enjoy doing, be in high and increasing demand and also profitable. First you should have a Life Plan completed so you will be able to create a successful small business startup around your lifestyle. See the article to find out why most business startup ideas fail.

When doing your "Hot Target Market" research I would also suggest talking to owners of companies that are doing the business. Many of them would welcome a chance to talk about their business ideas and products and or services. Sometimes new at home business ideas actually come from an extension of an existing business. An example would be that the owner of a wedding consultant firm has a hard time finding quality catering services, photographers or wedding cakes. As you can see business startup ideas can easily be generated by talking to owners of existing businesses and finding a need and filling it.

We discussed some ways to find at home business ideas, how many small business startup ideas can you come up with? Lets do a brief exercise to get your creative juices flowing. Take a piece of paper and write down one of the above ideas and think of some products or services that these businesses may use and need. Similar to the wedding consultant example above. It doesn't take long to be able to start finding needs and niches in the marketplace. These small business startup ideas that you come up with would be targeting businesses who are already up and running. Just another way to brainstorm for your great at home business ideas!

I am sure that we have missed numerous at small business startup ideas. It is exciting to know that the list above is only a small fraction of at home business ideas available today. I know that if you find your life plan first and then build your small business startup around that life plan, you will create a successful and prosperous new life for yourself and your family.
