The idea summery –
You will go on Craigslist and buy used fish tanks and fish supplies. You can find used fish tank supplies for almost nothing, manly because they are heavy and difficult to manage and there is a very limited market for used fish tanks.
Then you will make up some marketing materials and cold call business like Doctors and Dentist offices to place the tanks in for a small fee of $100.00 a month, and as a part of the deal you will come once a month to clean and maintain the fish tank. And all they have to do, just put a pinch of food in the tank everyday, and let their guest that visit the office enjoy!
And if you want to make this even more compelling project, you can tie all this to a some-sort of good cause, and maybe call it “Fish are friends not food”, fish rescue project. And get yourself a small sticker for the front of the tank so people can read about the cause, then maybe you could donate 10% of your earnings to a good cause like the surf riders foundation.
Start-up cost for this idea is under $1000.00
Earning potential of this idea – You place 100 tanks in offices, you could make upwards of $10,000.00 a month.
