With all the economic damage and uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic many people have found themselves without a job or in a position where they have had a lot of time on their hands to consider their future. As the Pandemic looks to be coming to an end with the successful development of vaccines, some people are considering tapping into economic recovery which is around the corner by changing jobs or doing something new.
Starting a new business is very exciting and if you get it right you can create something that is very rewarding and profitable. It is important to find a gap in the market and fill it with a niche business to maximize the opportunity.
To help all the entrepreneurs out there find that niche, here are 4 businesses you can easily develop from scratch.
1. A Jewelry Business
Starting a new jewelry business is always a great idea because everyone likes something a little sparkly. Whether you intend to craft and sell your own homemade bead jewelry or deal in precious metals and stones, great products are the most important factor when it comes to a successful jewelry business. There are many online guides on how to start a jewelry business that will teach you all of the basics. All good jewelers know that you need to identify your target customer and source the kind of jewelry they would want to buy. If your store is in a hip, young area, for example, unique homemade pieces may sell best.
2. A Cleaning Business
So many people these days lead such busy lives that just finding a spare moment to clean their home can be practically impossible. There are so many opportunities for new cleaning businesses to offer a hassle-free service for customers which will give them the time they need to take care of their other responsibilities. Cleaning is a very competitive market so the most important thing is that you stand out from the crowd. This may be with some great branding or by providing an industry-leading service at ultra competitive prices.
3. An Airbnb Business
Airbnb has exploded in recent years, and it is one of the easiest industries to get into. You can either choose to buy properties which you then rent out on the Airbnb website or act as a manager renting out other people’s properties. There are many wealthy people who have multiple luxury properties which they rarely use. The rent you can charge on their behalf for a weekend stay or a week’s vacation can help them to make a profit rather than leaving the properties empty. This is particularly effective in expensive cities where people often come for business trips or city breaks.
4. A Handyman Business
Similar to cleaning, fixing things around the house, and doing routine chores are things that many people just don’t have the time for. If you are good with your hands and already have a decent toolbox, starting your own handyman business is as easy as making a Facebook page or posting some flyers through your neighbors’ letterboxes. There are various jobs you can take on such as building maintenance, gardening, painting, and tiling.
There has never been a better time to start a new business as the world looks to move forward from these difficult times. Think about a business that will allow you to make money doing something you love and plan every aspect of the business perfectly.
