Coming Up With Investment Ideas

Many people think of stocks and shares or even gold bullions when it comes to investing. However, while these are obviously both viable investment options, they are not the only investment options. Making an investment is defined as putting a certain amount of money in to something, in the hope one day it will bring you a significantly higher return. With this in mind, people can learn to get creative with their investment ideas.

If you fancy yourself as a writer, why not invest time, effort and most importantly, money in to writing a book. Of course, as with any investment, the more you invest the greater the possible return in the long run. Investment in this case may be creative writing classes, publishing fees or marketing materials. There is always a risk your book will not make it on to the shelves, but as with most investment ideas it is natural to have an element of risk when it comes to investing.

Investing in property is probably a bad idea, in any other place apart from Bulgaria. Low property prices, an ever-increasing tourist trade and beautiful scenery make this investment opportunity hard to pass up. With basic one-bedroom houses selling for as little as £8,000 it is well within the price range of many people who probably only dream about investing in property. The only downfall is that property in Bulgaria tends to be in a bad state of repair and the local councils insist "foreign" property owners only employ local builders and tradesmen to do the work and repairs. This can be both a disadvantage and an advantage as while labour is cheap, the Bulgarians are also known for never getting around to doing anything.As with any investment, ensure you have taken all the appropriate financial and legal advice before proceeding.

Perhaps one of the most common investment ideas is investing in the stock market. The FTSE 100 index or the footsie as it is lovingly known, reflects the average performance of the 100 biggest companies in the UK who are on the stock market. Before purchasing shares, it is advisable to hire a stockbroker who is licensed to buy and sell shares as well as manage the risks associated with them.
