2. E-commerce

E-commerce has changed the way people look at shopping, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic. From going to shops and malls to opening an online shopping app and in just one click, the product is yours. 

The trend of shopping online would never be gone now. Why? Let’s figure it out. 

The trend will be forever

  • It’s human behavior to seek comfort, that is shopping online is much more comfortable than offline. 
  • A million shops are found in one spot. 

Start your own e-commerce business! 

  1. Choose your niche.

Before jumping on the product or business strategy, first understand different business models. Your e-commerce must not have different business models with no proper spotlight on any of them. 

  1. Know your audience

Define the age group you want to sell your product to. Also, research for the stats of what is most popular among them. 

  1. What product to sell? 

Analyze your target audience and then determine the color, structure, and usability of your product.

  1. Invest in my product? 

DON’T invest a huge amount at the beginning in your product. First, reach out to your potential customers and take feedback from them about your product. Then scale the business. 

  1. Register your brand

Choose a name that is easy to say. Get your business license, and employer identification number and apply for permits and licenses. 

  1. Last steps! 

Create a brand logo that matches the vibe. Finalize your business plan and execute it. At last, market your product. 

3. Consultations and Coaches

If you want to learn a skill, you’ll find a thousand mentors and coaches who provide 1:1 consultation calls on professional platforms such as LinkedIn and Instagram. 

Skills are getting more attention than degrees or education certificates in 2022. This is why every student seeks a mentor. In addition, this consultation business wouldn’t just stop here, but will grow further, know why! 

Can’t stop, won’t stop growing! 

  • In the coming times, skills will be in demand instead of just education. 
  • Students seek part-time work opportunities and become freelancers. The trend has come now.
  • Many youngsters stay confused while choosing their careers, and for that, career consultancy services are available as well. 

How can you make a profit out of this? 

You can learn a skill, master it and then give mentorship and coaching calls to others and charge from them accordingly. 

A fact you should know about, it takes 10 hrs × 3 years consistently for someone to master a skill. 

Build your personal brand if you want to convert your consultation calls into a full-fledged business.

Be a consultant! 

  • Have the call, not for more than a 30-minute time period.
  • Introduce yourself and ask them for the same. 
  • Tell them about the “topic”.
  • Stay confident throughout the call. 
  • Use razor pay to receive payments and other websites to schedule the call.

4. SaaS Business

After everything moved online. From going to the office to working from home, everything has changed! This shift happened over the internet. 

You must have seen corporate company employees being on Google workspace. Not just them, students, mentors, and everyone who worked or studied knows about Zoom or Google Meet!

What are they: Zoom, Shopify…? 

Those business models which host their products on their own cloud servers are SaaS business models. To earn, they can provide a subscription option just like Netflix does. 

Some of them like Zoom provide a free meet option and provide an option to buy a plan for more features. 

What to keep in mind while building a SaaS business? 

Firstly, you must be working on a problem with a UNIQUE solution. Let me explain my point here. 

There is a good probability of a solution to existing for an existing problem. What you can do to make your solution unique is to provide your customers with something to increase their comfort. 

For example, Dominos came up with a service to deliver within 30 minutes free pizza. 

Secondly, your app/website shouldn’t have a lot of bugs to fix. UX matters a lot! 

How to Build a SaaS Business? 

  1. A good design can seal a deal: Find a designer who can make sure to keep your business’ UX and UI great. 
  2. What would the product be like?: Create drafts considering the target customers’ pain points, your solutions, product features as well as the designs. 
  3. The function: Hire a developer who can build the real product. 
  4. Market the product: Now, take control of social media and market your product.
