If you are trying to make things work like so many during this pandemic, you might well be thinking about what kind of business you can run. Whether you are hoping to make your current business work out, or you are simply thinking about trying to change it up for something new, or maybe you are starting a new business altogether, the fact is that there are plenty of businesses you can run remotely from your home or wherever else. In this post, we will take a look at some of the best examples of these that you might want to consider.

Local Food Service

Perhaps you want to provide a service for your local area, and you love to make amazing food. If so, this is something that you can do remotely pretty easily, which might come as a surprise to some people. It’s all about figuring out where to sell the items, but as long as you find a stall or even just sell them online, you should be able to then deliver them to people’s homes. There are a few health and safety concerns to think about, such as temperature monitoring solutions and general hygiene, but all the same, this is a business you can run from home surprisingly well.


Although people don’t often think of it as business, actually being a freelancer means that you are running your own business – and that business is you and your services. There are many kinds of freelancing that you can do from home, and you are simply going to need to think about what kinds of skills you have that you can make use of. That might be writing, blogging, photography, or pretty much anything that you can do at your desk. As long as you work hard to find clients, you can make a success of it.

IT Support

These days, it is possible to offer businesses and individuals IT support completely remotely, and still provide them with the level of security that they are hoping for. If you are thinking about doing this, then you probably already have the knowhow about how to make it work remotely, but the fact is that there is very little you need to do in person these days to care for an IT system. This could be worth considering if you happen to be good with computers and you want to provide a decent B2B service.


All businesses need marketing, and if you have an eye for this particular kind of skill, you could provide some marketing services to businesses completely remotely. Most marketing is digital nowadays anyway, so there is normally no reason to go and have an in-person meeting, which you can now replace with a Zoom call anyway. If you want to set up this type of business, just ensure that you are marketing yourself right first. That is the first sign of whether or not your services can be trusted to deliver on your promises.
