When people think start-up, they think high-tech, millennial-run companies that are all online or all mobile. That’s partially true. While most massive, highly-publicized successful (and very much earning) start-ups are of the millennial and tech archetype, there are some start-up businesses that are successful in their own right. Just because you’re not globally known and and widely used on a smartphone and you’re not earning in the millions of dollars does not mean the start-up you own is not successful. That being said, here are 4 easy start-up opportunities that people tend to overlook, yet are easy to start, easy to scale up, and is definitely in demand.
1. Food Crawl Coordinator
One thing that will remain true to anybody in the world is their love for food. People will always want to know the best places to eat the best kinds of food to try, especially when they’re in a new or unfamiliar place. That’s why if you’re a foodie, this is a definitely a start-up worth looking into.
Imagine, you can help expose a lot of people to those places you already love eating, and join them while they’re at it! If you’re a very personable individual, you can up the ante by partnering up with those venues and ask them for a discount so you can maximize your profit from the sales you generate for the establishments. You get to eat good food, meet new people, and earn some money while you’re at it.
2. Travel and Tour Planner
If you’re an adventure junkie, this should be a no-brainer for you. You get to go around places while making money – what’s so bad about that? There may be a lot of travel agencies out there, but the type that you should start should be a bit more personalized; in the day and age where people look for something that strikes close to home, this is the market you need to address by creating hole-in-the-wall destinations and spots where on a real local would go and do.
For example, if you’re a local surfing aficionado, you can start a travel and tour guide service where you bring groups of people to great surfing trips that’s not mainstream. If you’re more of a history buff, you can take them through the streets of Metro Manila and provicnes nearby while you talk about the rich historical background of each destination you go to. Imagine that, doing what you love while also earning some cash – who wouldn’t call that a start-up success.
3. Dedicated Personal Shopper
For those who seem to feel more at home in malls rather than their own house, then putting up a personal shopping service might be just for you. With more and more people finding themselves trapped behind their desk, unable to find time to do some personal shopping for themselves, the market to serve is growing, making your passion lucrative.
Imagine, you get to go to the mall to buy – and maybe even curate – the clothes and necessities of others while making some extra cash so you can splurge on yourself. The key here is to make sure you understand and know your clients really well and show that you’re out to make them look good even if they don’t have the time to do it themselves. Shopping never sounded more fun than this!
