6 Money Making Sports Related Business Ideas

Around the world, people are either playing sports or watching sports. Anywhere you look in the media, sports are being broadcasted worldwide and have sometimes had even more viewers than the news stations—imagine how many people watch the Olympics and the Super bowl!

If you love everything sports, why not start a business circulating around something that you love anyway? Listed below are ways to make money in the sports industry.

1. Sports Magazine or Newspaper

If you’re a great writer and have a love for sports, you may be able to start your own newspaper or magazine. With the amount of sports fans around the world, you’ll have no problems with gaining a following as long as your content is quality material and well-written.

Up-to-date sports writing, along with well-written, quality materials will make the readers want to purchase your magazine. The more people that purchase your newspaper or magazine, the more money you will be able to take in.

2. Sports Radio Station

Another way to get involved with sports in the media is to start a sports radio station. This particular type of radio station is dedicated to anything and everything sports related, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. It may seem daunting to have your station run constantly, but the benefits will make it worthwhile.

Running your station at 24 hours a day ensures that it can reach a variety of different people who can listen at any time of the day that they find convenient, which can increase the number of listeners once it’s established that your station will give the latest, up-to-date sports information on real-time. You can get paid based on how many listeners are tuning into your station.

3. Sports Betting

Although not the best way to make money, as it can get addicting and risky, this is another way to earn some cash in the sports industry.

Sports betting thrives in any part of the world, and with a sports betting business, people can be allowed to visit your establishment and place bets via your outlets or website.

4. Sports Cartoons

Just like with sports writing and sports broadcasting, you can share your love of sports while making money. If you’re a graphic artist or animator, you could produce cartoon movies and then pitch your idea to a producer who will most likely purchase your work if they feel that it could attract many viewers.

Sports cartoons won’t be too much of a problem to sell because it children that love certain sports will most likely be the viewers, and it will also allow other children to fall in love with the sport as they watch the cartoons.

5. Sports Shop

If you want to be able to talk sports with a variety of different people, you can open up a sports shop. You can keep it as a general sports shop, or stick to one specific type of sport. As long as you know which sports are popular in your region, you will undoubtedly attract customers no matter where you set up considering that every part of the world is engaging in some kind of sports event.

The type of merchandise sold at your shop can range from memorabilia to sports equipment—such as souvenirs, apparel, balls, and shoes—really anything and everything sports! The more merchandise you have, the more people you will attract, the more money you can make.

6. Sports Marketing, Promotion, and Branding Company

This business can thrive extremely well if you are promoting popular teams and putting out quality merchandise. Getting into sports marketing means you should be knowledgeable about which teams are doing the best during their seasons where people are more likely to purchase their memorabilia—such as jerseys, souvenirs, apparel, etc. It will help you in picking which athletes you would want to wear your brands to promote your business.

This type of business takes dedication and work but can be worthwhile in the long run – remember, brands like Nike and Adidas started at the very bottom before rising to where they are now.

All in All

These are only a few ways to get into the sports industry business. No matter what your interests may be, you could always find a way to tie it into sports. So get the balls rolling and see how you can turn your passion into income!

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.
