The different types of fun business ideas are often creative or revolve around a hobby or passion. What is considered "fun" for one entrepreneur may not be by another, but in general, many web-based and art-focused business ideas are considered among the most pleasant. Website designing or writing, craft making and party planning are often considered fun business ideas. Others include businesses that relate to entertainment or the performing arts.

For example, a singing telegram business can be considered a fun business. Aspiring actors or singers as well as those with good voices are paid by the business to deliver entertaining songs about birthdays, anniversaries or other events to clients' homes or workplaces. Singing telegram businesses usually include the owners or managers writing original songs for the people they hire to perform.

Being a clown or magician who performs at children's parties or entertains hospitalized children is another performing arts type of business idea for those talented at these professions. There are many possible fun business ideas centered around entertainment. Party planning services are popular, as they tend to supply party ideas and everything needed for the event for one all-inclusive fee. The creative side of party and event planning businesses can be especially fun, as the challenge is often to think of unusual, new ideas. Choosing color schemes and party themes specific to the client can be creative and fun.


Artists, crafters or hobbyists who enjoy a particular subject or medium often create a fun business around it. For example, a person who loves to design and create jewelry may turn this into a business by selling his or her creations to stores. People who paint or make dolls, pottery, wood crafts may also sell their items. Those with these type of fun business ideas may also sell their products online through websites that promote their works and/or by traveling to different craft or art fairs.

Other entrepreneurs make money from advertising by maintaining websites or blogs on a topic they're passionate about. They hope to keep gaining subscribers as well as page views by writing interesting content that compels viewers to want to read it. These blog owners and writers also typically include fun graphics or photos with their posts. Blogging types of fun business ideas are popular in that the entrepreneur's money can be made through advertising in a "passive income" way through ad revenue gained after the blog posts are written. Depending on the system used, the advertising revenue may be amassed when readers either click on the ads or just read the blog pages containing them.
