Now more than ever, small businesses are thriving. In the current climate, more and more people are turning to small and local businesses to fulfil their needs, which makes now the perfect time to consider opening your own business.

Not sure where to start or what you want to do? We’re here to share with you four business ideas that you can start in 2020.

 

Online Seller

In recent months the online stores have grown massively in popularity. No matter what you are selling you are guaranteed to find a place online where you can earn money from what you have to sell.

Starting an online business is a great option for anyone who loves to be creative and make things by hand. Handmade items self very well on online stores, and there are many ways to do this. Starting an Etsy shop is the most common way of doing this as the platform has one of the biggest collections of independent artists and sellers of any platform. However, there are platforms such as Shopify and eBay.

 

Cleaning Business

Though it may seem a little one the nose, starting a cleaning business has never been a more lucrative venture. If you are someone who finds joy in cleanliness and organisation, why not consider starting a cleaning business?

One of the great things about starting a cleaning company is that you will not need any qualifications in order to do it. However, if you want to work in specialised cleanings – such as graffiti, chemical spills, etc., then you will likely need to get additional training or accreditations as well as considering any other health and safety implications and investing in specialised business insurance.

 

Freelance Copywriter

Do you have a natural way with words? Are you good at writing engaging copy? If so, why not consider becoming a freelance copywriter? As a copywriter, you will have the chance to write copy for your clients for any number of reasons, for example, ad copy, leaflets, social media posts, blog posts, product pages, etc.

One of the great things about being a freelance copywriter is that you get to choose the clients that your work with and the type of copy you write, meaning if you are not confident in a certain medium or industry, you don’t have to do it.

 

Online Courses

Have you got a lot of knowledge in a particular subject? Do you want to teach others what you know? If so, why not create online courses and teach them for a fee? Doing this gives you the best of both worlds, allowing you to utilise your existing knowledge without any additional training or qualifications and being paid to share your knowledge and experiences.

There are many ways that you can go about doing this and different sites that you can use to host your course. Be sure to do your research and find a way that suits your needs. Some sites may charge you a hosting fee while others won’t, while others may take a fee of x% from your earnings.

 

There are lots of different businesses that you may consider starting up this year, and the four we have outlined here are just the tip of the iceberg. Be sure to take into account things such as the skill level you have and the funding you would need to be able to open the business.

Whichever business idea you end up decided on, be sure to do your research and put in the effort to make it work. Do this, and your business will be a success in no time.
