Tough times never last, but tough people do. The evergreen quote by Robert Schuller makes a little more sense as we are getting out of the pandemic and leaving behind those several tough months of home quarantine and social distancing.
Several businesses were shut down, and many people lost their jobs, giving the entire world a reality check of how easily dismissible were their business and jobs. You can either feel sad and down about this fact or find the best way to thrive in a pandemic knowing this fact.
This blog focuses on the latter option, so if you wish to turn the frown upside down with some amazing business ideas to launch after the pandemic, keep reading.
Traditional businesses fell flat on their nose, and it wasn’t their fault. No one was ready for such a global calamity, but if you are still not prepared after more than a year of all this turmoil, you’ve got to change your priorities and way of doing business.
The secret here is to understand the scenario that the whole world is put in and understanding one specific term, “On-demand products and services.” So, let’s take a look at the 5 most promising business ideas to launch after the pandemic.
Is your home, rental place, office, studio, or workplace a total mess? Do you always struggle to find your keys or socks for a significant time? Well, not everyone picked up skills of immaculate cleaning and house chores.
Minimalism is in trend, and people are choosing simple, organized living over the ages-old materialistic lifestyle. This could be the perfect business startup if you or your workforce is good with cleaning and organizing spaces.
Many people and businesses are looking to downsize or organize their possessions and assets, but they either don’t have the energy or the time to spend organizing. That’s where you come in as a professional organizer. You get to satisfy “The Monica” in you by organizing things and spaces while earning good money for helping people declutter.
Home/Office/Lawn Care Service
You can go a step further from organizing and offer cleaning and property care service for higher pay. Cleaning and disinfecting spaces have become a regular action to be taken due to the Covid pandemic. But not every office or family has the time to do regular cleaning and property care; that’s your way in.
With a few staff members, a ton of cleaning and antibacterial supplies, and an array of cleaning services, you can help out the private and commercial property owners while making good money. It’s a really straightforward business model, people that need home or office cleaning or lawn care service will request your app, and your staff will provide it.
Sanitizing and disinfecting will be part of our life for a very long time, and office buildings, homes, restaurants, and other public businesses are counting on cleaning service providers to disinfect their spaces and keep people safe continuously.
On-Demand Food Delivery Service
What was the worst part of spending months in-home quarantine? Missing your favorite pizza or burger from that one restaurant or food truck that you love. But then came the angel of technology! On-demand food delivery apps like DoorDash, Uber Eats, Grubhub, and Postmates helped us all keep going with the lovely dishes.
You can start such a food delivery service for your restaurant or create a platform for several other restaurants and food trucks to sell their food. Whether you want to use this platform only to boost your own sales or earn commissions on all other food joints selling on your app platform, the choice is yours.
The DoorDash food delivery business model is a brilliant map for you to study and build upon your own food delivery service app. Check out what the existing food delivery apps are doing right and wrong, learn from their operation, and build yours.
Translation & Transcription Service
Are you good with words? Is your hearing excellent? If your answer is yes, then here is an amazing business idea. There is a video content surge on the internet, it has been there for some years, and it will stay this way for a long time. And all these video content needs transcription for people to read, and we all know that the auto-generated subtitles of YouTube or any other social media app are not that good.
All you need is the knowledge of multiple languages and basic skill in writing. You can do it alone or get friends or interested individuals to start a full-fledged service. Transcription jobs are usually for the language the video is made in, in most cases English. At the same time, translations are usually for the most common languages spoken, for instance, Mexican, Spanish, etc.
The service charges mostly on per word or line rate. Translation work will get you more money than transcription work. The best part is that it’s one of the most cost-effective businesses to run. All you need is a computer with the appropriate software like MS Office or WPS, that’s it.
OTT Entertainment Platform
Life is not worth living without art, without entertainment. And we all learned this very well in the recent pandemic when our prime source of entertainment became OTT platforms like Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime, and Hulu.
We live in the internet era where cable TV and radio don’t just cut it for us. We want our dose of entertainment at our time and convenience, and that’s what OTT platforms bring to the table. You can get into this industry with your own OTT entertainment platform.
The best way to do it is to get into a particular niche at first and provide singular theme content. So you choose a particular genre like comedy or drama and stick to it in the beginning. Then as your audience grows, you can keep growing your content with a wide range of genres and categories.
The best way to start an OTT platform on a budget is by offering new content creators a chance on your platform; this way, you don’t have to pay a hefty price on popular titles and create your own army of content creators.
So these were the top 5 business ideas that you could start as the curve is flattening and the pandemic is probably going away. There are all the ideas for you to consider; now the ball is in your court.
