We have all considered starting a business at some point in our lives but for those of us who decide to follow through with the idea, one of the first and most important things we need to do is make sure our business idea is going to be a lucrative one. Here, we have listed three of the most lucrative ideas for entrepreneurs hoping to make their first leap into business.
The key to having a lucrative business is choosing something that has low overheads and cleaning is certainly that. All you need is time and a few basic cleaning products which can be purchased pretty cheaply. You may also need a car depending on how far you’d like your client base to reach. There are expenses associated with owning a vehicle for example motor trade insurance is required by law however, when you’re using a vehicle for business purposes there are various reductions on the expenses associated with it.
There is also consistent demand for cleaning companies as it is a necessity to keep homes and premises clean, and people are always willing to pay someone to do a job which is largely regarded as low-level.
2. Website Design
In this day and age, almost every company needs a website in order to advertise their services and because they are a great communication platform for customers. According to SBA estimates, over 627,000 new businesses emerge every year in the US alone, so you can see just how much demand there is likely to be for a website design company. Website design requires a very specific set of technical skills which you need to specialise in, so not everyone can start up a business in this niche whenever they feel like it. This means that your competition will be limited which will contribute towards the likelihood of success for your company. Furthermore, there are minimal overheads involved; other than, of course, time, you need a computer, an internet connection and software, all of which will last a long time before ever needing to be replaced.
This may not seem like an interesting topic but owning a storage company can be one of the most passive forms of income out there, which means you need to do very little for your money. If you have a space that you don’t use, why not organise a range of spaces where people can pay to store their belongings. People usually pay a monthly fee for storage which you don’t need to do anything for! There is always demand for storage as people are notoriously sentimental and don’t like to simply get rid of belongings.
Every great business starts with an idea and every great idea consists of low overheads and high, consistent demand. If any of these ideas take your fancy, then have a look at spoutfire.com for more business news and tips to help you to finally make that leap into entrepreneurship.
