If you want to start a business in this new year you must understand that next year is still a year that is affected by the pandemic of 2020, this does not mean that there is danger for business, rather it means that there are certain business opportunities that are more profitable than in other years. If you are interested in knowing which are the best opportunities then keep reading because here we are going to tell you about them.
If the pandemic taught us anything, it is that the teaching and learning process needed a total renovation and that it was perfectly possible to learn from a distance. In fact, many people took advantage of the free time left by confinement to learn a skill, of course they did this because it was at a distance, through the Internet.
Even though online courses and distance learning have been around for several years with the pandemic, this business became even more demanding, since it brought new users closer to these learning models that before would not have approached this form of education.
If you are interested in starting a business in the educational niche, you can do it from several aspects. The most obvious is to create online courses, for this you do not need to design a very complicated and long course, you can do it of something in which you consider yourself an expert and create your course on platforms like Crehana, Domestika who will help you to distribute and advertise it, if you want to learn more about it you can read our post about the best online courses platforms
, this way you will have an extra income passively.
If you are good at programming or app design you can develop an online tutoring application, where teachers or experts in a subject can contact students or simply people who want to know a little more about a particular topic. Although there are already some platforms of this type, you can design a platform in which the tutorials are in person but the first contact is remote; or you can create a platform for a more specific educational sector, for example tutorials for medical students, engineering students or any specific career, this way you can specialize and have a more targeted advertising.
Another of the ways in which you can undertake in the education sector is in the resolution of educational needs through technology. Even though formal education has returned to face-to-face classes, the use of technology for the teaching-learning process is here to stay. So, you can create applications that facilitate the teaching work or facilitate learning at home for the little ones; for example, there are several schools that are looking for their own online platform to send and receive notifications, homework and even remote classes, as you can imagine this is a niche market that will be in high demand in the coming years.
2. Ghost restaurant
The confinement forced restaurants to close their physical businesses, many food and beverage establishments did not stop as they found in delivery platforms the solution to this new challenge. There are even studies that claim that the food delivery service grew by 143%. As with education, the end of the confinement measures did not change this trend, i.e. there are still people who prefer to order food at home than to go out to eat in a restaurant.
So if you are gifted in the kitchen, setting up a restaurant, cafeteria or any food-related business in 2022 is still a good idea. We know that setting up a business of this type requires a large investment, especially in infrastructure because in addition to installing a professional kitchen you also have to create a cozy space for diners, luckily there is an option that can be much cheaper. We refer to the ghost restaurants.
This business model allows you to open your own restaurant, but only offering food delivery, you know through apps like Uber Eats or Rappi. This way you can save a lot of money on facilities as you can set up your business in a much smaller kitchen and without having to worry about a location large enough for your customers. The best thing is that this type of business works with several services, for example you can put a cafeteria or a dessert store.
3. Health applications
The pandemic reminded us how important it is to take care of our health, it also taught us that this care does not depend on making big investments or big sacrifices, because taking care of our health depends on small habits and changes that we can make every day. Taking this into account, today more and more people are interested in making these small changes.
One of the ventures for 2022 that we would like to suggest has to do with this. If you know programming you can create an application that records these small details about your health such as calculating steps or measure physical activity that a person performs, record vital signs, you can even link the application to training videos or within the same app create an agenda to organize consultations with doctors, dentists, laboratory tests, and something very necessary today vaccination schedule; so that users do not forget these important activities. The idea is that it is an application where the user has concentrated everything related to their health, as you can imagine it is an excellent option to undertake.
If you do not have experience in programming, but you follow a fitness lifestyle you can choose to create content on social networks about training and tips for a healthy life, you can even become a personal trainer virtually.
4. Selling ecological and organic products
For some years now a very important market for organic products has been created and this 2022 will not be the exception, so here there is also an excellent market opportunity with eco-friendly and organic products. The best thing you can do is to partner with local producers or artisans, depending on the product or products you want to trade, this way you can guarantee that the products are completely organic.
If you don’t have the capital to set up a big business, it can be a good idea to start selling on marketplaces like Facebook, to cater to a more local level so people will start to know your products.
There are several products with which you can start your business, because thanks to the increasing demand for products that take care of the environment there is a wide range of these and reach various market niches, today there are organic items in various sectors, for example in personal care there are items such as soaps, creams, shampoos; baby products such as diapers; pet products such as organic food or organic cat litter. So, you just have to choose the items with which you have more experience or with which you feel more confident and you can start with your online store or sell in a marketplace.
