Six Amazing Start-Up Business Ideas for 2019
Many online articles leading up to the new year discuss the latest trends in fashion, what films are expected to make an impact and the latest gadgets to look out for. However, we also need to address the business world; especially the growing nature of the online retail community. Whether you are a newbie or you are an experienced veteran, the fact of the matter is that there is always something new to learn. As opposed to delving into technical aspects of online marketing, let’s imagine for a moment that you are considering launching an online retail page in the coming year. What are some of the hottest products to market and why will these help to provide you with an additional revenue stream? Let’s take a look at the top six items set to make a splash in the not-so-distant future.
No, we are not talking about military-grade drones. We are instead referring to those lightweight gadgets that are now being used to film everyday activities. One glance at the latest selection of YouTube videos will certainly prove this point. Modern drones are cheap to manufacture, cost-effective to ship (even to foreign locations) and they are extremely popular. They are available in a wide range of sizes and the design options are nearly limitless. As the price of the average drone continues to drop, this is a serious item to consider marketing during the coming year.
Smart Exercise Equipment
Brace yourself: new year’s resolutions are on the horizon. More than 60 per cent of all individuals are committed to becoming more healthy in the coming year. This habit begins and ends with gym-based exercise (regardless of how short they are committed to such a project). Modern technology such as smart watches now allow individuals to track basic parameters such as their heart rate, their blood pressure and the distance that they have walked. To be sure, major suppliers such as Google and Apple are already marketing these devices. The main point is that brand-name wearable equipment is rather expensive. Why not market lesser-known versions to your audience? This is another great marketing idea to embrace in 2019.
Cutting-Edge Dash Cameras
Although this trend first emerged in Russia a handful of years ago, it seems as if everyone is interested in purchasing a dash cam. Whether to record a holiday or for safety purposes, these devices are as useful as they represent very interesting online retail opportunities. Although you might not possess a stock of spare dash cams in the garage, never forget that you can utilise the power of drop shipping firms such as Oberlo to supply products to your target audience.
There are two main reasons why marketing wireless earbuds could represent another worthwhile business venture. First and foremost, advancements in technology have allowed these devices to represent very affordable options when compared to their hard-wired counterparts. Another point to mention is that they are extremely convenient accessories. They can be worn in nearly any environment and some are even able to be used in harsh conditions such as when swimming or skiing. As the average cost per unit is relatively low, the potential to accrue substantial profits is therefore much higher when compared to the past. Why not “tune in” your marketing campaign to include wireless headphones?
This next suggestion may come as a bit of a surprise (unless you are already a health nut). A growing body of research suggests that matcha tea is able to provide a host of health-related benefits. Some of these include decreased, appetite, an increased metabolism and numerous benefits involving a natural form of detoxification. You can rest assured that this tea will be in high demand following holiday revelries. The good news is that from an online sales and marketing standpoint, this tea is a great option to keep in mind. It is extremely cheap to ship and the average customer is likely to make repeat purchases once he or she appreciates its beneficial effects.
Customised Mobile Phone Cases
This last suggestion is not as innovative as it is a logical option. Customised mobile phone cases are in very high demand; especially when referring to millennials and the younger generations. Unlike the other products mentioned above, these cases could very well be customised at your home before they are passed on to the end user. This is an excellent way to reduce your overhead and naturally, you will not require a great deal of storage space.
These suggestions are worth a closer look and you can always perform additional research if you hope to encounter other interesting ideas to consider during 2019. The bottom line is to think outside of the box and to employ the latest online e-commerce portals if you hope to make a lasting impact.
