Top business ideas for 2019

Last Update: December 29, 2018

Have you ever dreamed of being your own boss? In this post I will be revealing the secret of the Top Business Ideas for 2019 worth considering. It is only natural, on the eve of a new year, to review the past and to consider your future in an attempt to make the adjustments that will improve your quality of life.

These Top Business Ideas for 2019 must fulfill the following criteria in order to make the list:

  1. Low start-up capital required. This must be in reach of anyone who is willing to put in the time and effort into their business.

  2. No higher education or PhD required to be successful.

  3. No age restriction or previous education required nor should you be regarded as being too old.

  4. Must be able to perform this from your home or part-time as a sideline.

The above criteria is major obstacles hindering people from starting their own business. If we remove these obstacles are there still options left to fulfill your dream of being your own boss? The answer to this is an resounding yes!

There are many reasons why these business are trendy and “hot” topics for 2019. The most important reason is advancement in technology and human behaviour. Many of these advancements left traditional BIG corporations “scratching”around and failing in an attempt to stay-up-to-date with the fast moving trends of the modern era. Some BiG corporations are successful and many fail to adapt.

The trends that can give you, the individual in a small business, an edge are as follows:

  1. Customers have more choices. More choices brings more opportunities. People expect more and demand more. A one fits all approach resulting in scale benefits followed for years by BIG corporations are not working anymore.

  2. Customers gravitate towards fast seamless and personalised services.

  3. Artificial Intelligence will not replace humans when it gets to delivering a unique customer experience.

  4. Customer reviews will be the greatest influencer of any business. Customer reviews influence more than 95% of customers before buying online.

  5. The role of the influencer will become greater and greater as it provides authenticity to consumers when they connect with somebody who they trust to make a purchase decision.

  6. The shift towards remote work will increase in the future. Employment satisfaction is at a very low level as many corporations struggle to adopt to the concept of remote work. People prefer to reduce wasting of time on travelling and unpleasant working environments with a homely atmosphere of their houses or favorite coffee shop.

  7. Increased collaboration on shared platforms and integration of applications.

  8. Further rise in blockchain technology to enhance security due to collaboration.

  9. Automation of accounts collection via shared data.

I was struck by how Wealthy Affiliate prepares their members based on the above trends to be equipped to tap into those trends and make business ideas a reality.

By now I guess you cannot wait for me to reveal the secret of the Top Business Ideas for 2019.

They are presented in no particular order of preference:

  1. Amazon fulfillment program. If you have an interest in a product sales business, AFP is a hot business at the moment.

  2. Software engineering & development. If you love software integration and programming this can be your game.

  3. Virtual reality is busy finding its way through all forms of entertainment and businesses such as real estate.

  4. Mealkit sales and delivery. If you love recipes and preparing food, people love to pay for fully prepared delicious healthy meals.

  5. Freelance copywriter providing quality content for company blogs, and press releases.

  6. Translation services of documents and websites. If you are fortunate to speak an additional language to English, you may be in business.

  7. Professional reviewers. Companies are looking for people to test their products and provide honest reviews.

  8. Online courses and tutoring. If you have a passion for education, you can even compile your own course in any area of expertise.

  9. Influence marketing. Companies are looking for people with influence and followers to promote their products and services.

  10. Social Media advertising targeting specific audiences.

  11. Podcasts is growing faster than the American economy. If you have a clear voice, put your money where your mouth is.

  12. Home renovation. Americans spend on average $3000 per year on home renovation. If you are good with your hands you can start a business.

  13. Bicycle sales, service and rental. People are encouraged to reduce the burden of traffic on the roads plus you can move to a healthier lifestyle one pedal at a time.

  14. Senior care service. The Baby Boomers are getting older but they are not getting healthier.

  15. Skilled trades are back in business and it is a business you can run from your home. Artisans of electriciens, plumbers, woodwork, steelwork, mechanical and robotics are high in demand.

  16. Errand / concierge service for those people who want more quality for their time.

  17. Digital marketing services for local business. Web development, SEO, Social media and Email marketing campaigns are the services that falls into this category.

  18. Food trucks at events. Reduce restaurant rent expenses and travel to events for those people who love food and travelling.

  19. Self storage units. Takes more capital investment but the decor and fittings are kept to the bare minimum. If you can provide good security and a light bulb with your units you can invest in this business.

  20. Virtual assistant and professional organiser. If you can organize well you can help many people as the trend of minimalism continues.

Hi Mark

A new concept I learned at WA IS "EVERGREEN" and so true in its application.

I have a client who has been a nurse at a state hospital and she started a Private Nursing business doing elderly care at the people's homes. Now she is selling the franchise business to people in other towns and cities throughout South Africa. She is doing really well.

We will watch this space for the year to come.

All the best and hey thanks for reading.
