If you’re looking for a way to make some extra money, why not try your hand at making and selling bricks? It’s a surprisingly simple process, and with the right marketing, you can earn a nice income and make it a full-time job in which you don’t necessarily have to soil yourself with the mud. Here’s everything you need to know to get started.

The Process of Making Bricks

Making bricks is actually quite simple. All you need is a sizeable piece of land, soil (clay preferably), sand and cement depending on the type of brick, firewood for backing and a mold. First, you’ll need to mix the soil with water until it reaches the right consistency. Then, you’ll pour it into the mold to generate the shape and dry the raw bricks in the sun until it hardens. Once they’ve hardened, you can pile them up one by one to form a “kiln” to bake. Some people use petrol for baking, something local constructors don’t find pleasing. Be sure to research why.

After the bricks have baked in the “kiln”, they’re ready to be sold! You can either sell them directly to customers or through a brick dealer. If you go the latter route, be sure to do your research to get a fair price for your product.

Types of bricks you can make

There are a few different types of bricks you can make, each with its own unique properties:

Decorative Bricks

One way that you can make money by making and selling bricks is by making decorative bricks. Decorative bricks can be used to add beauty and curb appeal to homes and businesses. You can make decorative bricks out of soil or concrete, and they can be glazed or unglazed. To get started, all you need is a mold for the bricks (which can be purchased or fabricated) and the materials to make those specific bricks.

Fire Bricks

Another way to make money with bricks is by making fire bricks. Fire bricks are made out of refractory ceramic materials and are used in high-temperature applications such as furnaces, fireplaces, stoves, kilns, Jikos, and BBQ grills. They are able to withstand temperatures of up to 3000 degrees Fahrenheit! To get started, all you need is a mold for these specific bricks which can be purchased or fabricated).

Actual Bricks

The third way that you can profit from making bricks is by actually manufacturing standard size red clay building bricks which are our main focus of this article. These types of brick are used in construction projects all over the world. To get started, you will need access to a kiln (which can be rented or purchased) as well as the raw materials to make the brick (soil and/or sand, water). Once you have made the brick, you can sell them to contractors, construction companies, or even individuals who are looking to do some DIY projects.

Marketing Your Bricks

Of course, simply making bricks isn’t enough; you must also market them effectively if you want to make good money from them. For instance, if you’re selling directly to customers, make sure that you let them know what makes your bricks different from what they can find at their local home market. Are they handmade? Do they come in unique colors, shapes or size? Let your potential customers know what sets your bricks apart so that they’re more likely to buy from you.

Like any other long-time and serious business out there, you should also create a strong branding strategy. Choose a name for your business and design a logo that represents what you do. Then, use this name and logo on all of your marketing materials, from business cards and flyers to website banner ads and social media posts if that will help set you apart from your competitors.

Creating a recognizable brand will help customers remember your business when they’re ready to buy bricks.

Conclusion

Making and selling bricks is a great way to earn some extra cash. With a little bit of creativity in your marketing, you can turn this side hustle into a full-fledged business! So, what are you waiting for? Start making money today by making bricks!
