Some people start a business because they want to trade in whatever they’re passionate about. Their profit margins are important, but not as much as their work. However, you might be more into the idea of owning a profitable business, and stuck for ideas as to what you’ll be trading in. If this sounds all too familiar, then here’s some niches that you may want to consider.
First of all, drone manufacturing. Drones have been around for more than a decade now, though their popularity isn’t fizzling out at all. You’ve probably seen one of these little machines hovering, swooping and diving somewhere locally. Some people buy these purely as a hobby, but there’s a lot of business applications to consider. Security firms, photography companies and all sorts of other businesses are now using drones to make things easier. Whether you target the leisure or the professional niche, there’s certainly a lot of money to be made in drone manufacturing. There are some big names already, but no one dominates the drone market the way that Coca-Cola dominates beverages. Do some research, and break into the industry while the going’s good!
Next, vegan foods. There are more vegans on this planet than there ever have been before. This trend isn’t expected to disappear anytime soon, so make sure you don’t ignore it! These days, many firms have begun researching ways to create vegan-friendly products that would usually require meat, eggs and cheese. This can be done using a range of plant proteins and cutting-edge culinary techniques. One prominent up-and-comer in this industry is Josh Tetrick Hampton Creeks CEO. Whether you think the meat industry is an abomination or you never think about it at all, there’s certainly a lot of demand for vegan food products. The futuristic shift of this industry is very young, and therefore volatile. However, if you feel like you can manage one big R&D department, then this is certainly a niche you should be looking into.
Finally, fraud detection technology. Seen as you’re reading this, I’m sure you know something about the way e-commerce is going these days. Businesses like Etsy and Big Cartel have made it easier than ever for someone with an idea and a computer to set up a business and start turning a profit. While this is great in some ways, there’s a big downside to consider. With the increased shopping platforms, we’ve seen a huge rise in online fraud and theft. Once a scammer gets a hold of some customer credit card numbers, a business’s whole reputation can quickly be destroyed. Modern social media use has made brands a lot more fragile, so obviously, CEOs are going to be very skittish with the threats they’re facing. Online fraud is a big business, and as a result so is prevention. This could be a great way to make money, and protect consumers while you’re at it!
I hope this post has given you a better idea of the business you’re going to set up. Remember, though, a niche starts with a single business!
