Hey, readers welcome to the new world reality, a reality in which near about 27 million people have lost their jobs, and industries have been brought to a halt and it will take months or years to recover. So this article has top business ideas for everyone in the pandemic they can certainly provide a job a lifestyle and a potential for growth if you are good at it.
To me being an entrepreneur was a choice. I went to the corporate route and then I decided to quit my job to start my own business. But the question arises here what if I lost my job what would I do? So here are some top business ideas after lockdown.
All right so billion-dollar business ideas don’t come to you when you’re under pressure they happen rarely, and they take months and years to test and develop. You might not have months or years.
1] Start Home Kitchen
So here is a first idea start a home kitchen. This seems to be a new up-and-coming trend that was officially legalized in California with the cottage food law and the microenterprises kitchen operation. I think there is an opportunity here people are working from home, might not have time to cook, they want to avoid junk food while spending less money. There is a growing market that will not stop even when the world reopens.
I expect similar legislation will be available in other states and other countries soon. Maybe it already is. Platforms like UberEats have allowed plenty of tiny kitchen operations to spring around the world, small enterprises that probably could not afford to maintain a fully-fledged restaurant in the location with foot traffic, but they are now exposed to a whole new audience.
2] Make Websites
Another idea is websites. While starting a blog is an option, it is going to be really tough to compete, and it is gonna take months to generate any meaningful income if you are depending only on ads. But I think there is an opportunity on retail, which has been forcefully digitalized and many stores were not really prepared to be completely online.
While you might think that Amazon rules the world of online shopping, and they kind of do, there are still billions of dollars in retail transactions occurring from small stores many of them operated via Shopify.
This is not a commercial for Shopify but there are over 500000+stores on the platform, not to mention the stores hosted on Squarespace and Webflow.
So, First, you can build a store of your own it’s very easy. I don’t know anything about handling the store. And second, you can help other people with their stores. All these platforms have been created so that small entrepreneurs can build and host their own stores, and they are all pretty easy to use. Still, not everybody is really tech-savvy. So here is the step-by-step guide to creating your own Shopify store from scratch. You only need to sign up and start learning.
3] Virtual Assistants
Another growing industry here is virtual assistants. We have hired a few at different stages of the company to lend an extra pair of hands-on tasks that can’t be fully automated by bots. We have also spent a fair amount of money on top companies like user testing and usability hub.
When we have a new interface or design that we want to test, that we put it there and Survey users on what their thoughts are, and whether or not they found it intuitive. You can join as a tester and make money for each review that you make. You might not be living from it but it’s income while you sit at home, which is what we are doing anyway.
4] Content Creations
Now video content creation is another opportunity. Hey look at us, While it is not easy to stand out in today’s competitive content and content marketing world, I believe two key variables are content has are genuine stories and excellent production values.
Now we get tons of questions about the tools that we used to make video content. So here is the solution I found a great course by Jake that goes over all the details on Skillshare, and I am happy to recommend it. Skillshare gives you free access for 2 months.
