Make Money Without Money – Deliver Groceries While Taking Money to the Bank

If you have a car and are looking for a way to make money without money, then a grocery delivery business might be right up your alley. People’s lives are getting so busy these days they don’t have time to do everything they need to get done in a week. Spending time cruising through the grocery store and waiting in a long line at the checkout is the last thing they want to do after a busy week. There are also a large number of senior citizens and people that are handicapped who would sincerely benefit from your delivery services.

There is quite a bit of preparatory work involved in getting this type of business up and running but none of it costs any money. The first thing you are going to need to do is get in touch with your local grocery stores, many of them offer an online ordering service but would be more than happy to work with an independent delivery person.

For those stores that do not offer this service you will need to take the time to draw up an order form of your own that lists what they carry and the prices they sell it for. This can be a major chore as prices tend to change frequently; fortunately most stores now offer online ordering.

You can set a program up on your computer to keep track of orders that you have taken, who they are for and when they want them delivered. You should make sure you have a good quality answering machine or voicemail box so that people can leave their orders with you or tell that they have placed their orders at the store.

You will need to decide how far you are willing to deliver if you live in a larger area and the hours that you will deliver in. You should take into account not only travel time but the amount of time it will take you to do the actual shopping if necessary, although pre-orders should be bagged and ready to go. You need to decide how you are going to ask your customers to pay for the groceries and whether you want them to prepay for them or pay for them at delivery.

You will also need to decide how you are going to charge for this service, you can charge per delivery or a percentage of the grocery bill, the most common is the flat fee charge since the customer will always know what they are going to pay for your services.

Getting started is fairly simple you need to talk to all your local grocery stores and let them know what you are planning to do, ask them to let you place fliers on their bulletin boards and even at the cash registers for customers to take home. Canvas your neighborhood and leave fliers at all the homes, check in at your local senior centers and talk to people there and leave fliers at community centers and Laundromats.

Remember the more you spread the word about your new business the better the chances of success for your new venture are. This is definitely a great way to make money with a new business when you really do not have any money to start with.
