1. Start a flight tours business ($759K/month)

A flight tour business takes people on short flights to experience an aerial view. If you are into airplanes and love taking different people on tours, the flight tour business is a more expensive service that targets adventurous clients.

While starting a flight tour business may sound overwhelming, doing scenic tours the right way can be rewarding. Cover locations of interest worth seeing from the air and target affluent travelers. To market your business, take a couple of pictures covering different scenes to entice the target customers and make them want to experience the tours.

If you have ever met me (which is pretty unlikely), then you probably learned relatively quickly that I’m really into airplanes. And by ‘really’ I mean borderline obsessed. My name is Corey Rust, and I own the Troutdale, Oregon based air tour business Envi Adventures.

Now, our best month was over $30,000 in revenue, and that is only in our second year. For a dumb guy like me, it makes me happy to know that I’m providing a service that people from all over the world are interested in. Not only that, but we have been able to generate a brand that people are beginning to recognize and connect with on a different level. Personally, I think that’s the most exciting part.

Do you enjoy watching fish and other underwater creatures? You could turn your love for underwater watching into a great snorkeling business. As much as snorkeling is a combination of entertainment and relaxation, starting a snorkel tour business is a fantastic way to earn income.

To get customers to your snorkeling tours, design an informative and colorful brochure depicting the entertainment and relaxation that snorkeling offers. Do not forget to record videos, share them widely on social media, and tag nearby restaurants, hotels, and campgrounds.

To run a successful business, you will need general knowledge and experience in snorkeling, first-aid training, and equipment. Also, due to the nature of this business, you will need to carry liability insurance and possibly a certificate identifying you as a tour operator.

8. Start a campervan conversion business ($8K/month)

Campervan conversion is growing in popularity. The main reason behind its popularity is it is a cheaper alternative for buying a new campervan.

If you plan to start a campervan conversion business, you can offer the customers a readymade campervan or a camper van conversion service. A readymade campervan model is where you purchase a caravan, convert it into a campervan, then sell it to outdoor lovers, or even rent the camper van. As a service, a customer drives to your workshop and requests you to convert their van into a camper.

The readymade option offers a wider profit margin, but there is a risk of waiting longer to sell the campervan. Conversion as a service has less profit, but there is more certainty when getting your money back.
