What a year 2020 was! It is unquestionably marking an entire chapter in the books of history. Lives lost, moments missed, weddings postponed, movements initiated, voices raised, and businesses shut down. Next in line after the loss of human lives, the loss in business has been the most severe one. Many of us might have experienced a loss in their business or witnessed a shut down in the project. For many of us, 2021 is the ray of hope that we were waiting for so eagerly throughout 2020. It brought new chances for weddings, for reforms, for the betterment, and for new businesses.
5 Businesses That May Prove To Be Successful In 2021
Here are five businesses that hold the highest possibilities to be successful in this hopeful year.
- Online Reseller
The situation is very unpredictable. The lockdowns may continue, or they may not. The only thing for sure is that people are not going to stop shopping. No matter what the government’s decision regarding lockdown may be, the online orders are going to continue without a halt. In fact, compared to the years prior to 2020, there will be a manifold rise in the online purchase/ order rates.
This is due to two reasons. 1. When people are trapped at home, they get bored. Moreover, the stress levels increase with the given pandemic situation. In such cases, one of the many ways out of these stressful times is by shopping online. 2. All the physical stores are closed. The only safe and available means to shop is online.
You have two options in which you can do this business. You can start selling your unused, old clothes at a discounted rate, or you can be a middleman and purchase the clothes to resale them. If you are planning to enter this line of business, make sure you are well versed with the terms and aesthetics. Dark academia, cottagecore, kawaii, business casual, and retro are some of the most trending aesthetics these days.
- Medical Courier Service
There were 703 billion people aged 65 years or above in 2019. There are many people who stay at home, and their only source of income is their pensions. Most of these elders are unable to walk on their own or drive. In such a case, their only option is to order the medicines through courier.
This business has been expanding recently. Just like food, clothes, and online services, you can now order medicines online. You can tie up with a pharmacy and create an online platform through which you can receive the orders. However, the most responsible task here is to make sure that every customer that orders the medicines online has a prescription from a certified doctor.
All that you need for investment is a reliable motor vehicle (two-wheeler or otherwise) and ample time management skills. You can work for both the customers as well as your pharmacist. Given the current situation, make sure that you follow all the safety protocols (wearing mask and gloves, sanitizing the packages, etc.) while running such services. The safer and more punctual your services are, the more orders you will get.
- Professional Organizer
With everyone re-organizing their mess and cleaning their homes, it is an excellent opportunity to become a professional organizer. Moreover, the trend of ‘I hired a professional organizer to organize my home’ is in the newborn stage on video streaming platforms like youtube. It gives you more chances to expand your business.
The practice of minimalism is trending in the world. The people are in need of assistance to help them clear out the things they have hoarded over the years and organize them. The primary brole you play as a professional organizer is to assist the clients in developing a system that downsizes and declutters their things and ultimately stores them in an orderly manner.
If you find amusement in organizing things and making spaces comfortable and functional, you might make a good minimalist coach. Not only do you get to enjoy arranging things, but you will get paid for it too. You can utilize the youtube trends to promote your work and upload before and after pictures to gain more customers.
- Pet Sitter
In India, the population of pet dogs was more than 21 million in the year 2019 and is anticipated to rise to more than 31 million by 2023. With the youth (living alone or with a spouse who works as well) planning to resume work, their pets would need someone to look after their pets. Moreover, even if there are families with pets, and they want to go away for an extended period, they too might need someone to watch their pets.
Your duties as a pet sitter include feeding them, giving them water, playing with them, spending time with them, and walking them (specifically the dogs). You will have to regularly update your clients on how their ‘babies’ are doing. Above it all, you get to spend time with some cute dogs, tiny kittens; and other loving animals. What more can one want?
There is zero investment required in this business. Besides, if you have another business online (and a stable source of internet connection) or some homework to complete, you can gladly do it at the client’s place while watching their pets. The job of your dreams, isn’t it?
- App Developer
Anyone who chooses any of the above jobs needs a mobile application for their business. Everyone is constantly on their smartphones. All over the world, organizations are looking forward to establishing applications that are compatible with both iOS and Android systems. Especially with the remote working practices, the majority of the organizations are looking for a mobile application for their existing software like HRMS software solution.
All you need is proper knowledge in the field of app development, and you are good to go.
If you are planning to have a double kill, having knowledge of being a web developer and a graphic designer would be your way to go. Just as vogue as app developing maybe, web developing and graphic designing is not out of the market yet.
In a Nutshell
Being depressed over the past year is not going to be fruitful at all. It is understandable that it has been a year of losses and sadness. However, after every pitch-black night, there comes a day. Let 2021 be that ray of hope, the sunshine after the dark storm.
Irrespective of whether you have experience in that field or not, you can go ahead in any of these fields with positive energy and enthusiasm and come out to be successful. All you need to invest in these jobs is some passion, basic knowledge, willingness, and little to no monetary fund, and you are all set to sail. There may be setbacks at times; it is not going to be a smooth sail, but again, look for the wind, keep your head high, and don’t let the hiccups stop you from shining.
2021! Here we come! Also, wishing you a Happy New Year!
