Top Business Ideas to Try Out in 2019

If you’re like many Americans, the dream of running your own business and being able to quit your 9-5 job sounds appealing. However, not knowing where to get started or what industry to pursue may be holding you back from starting on the path to entrepreneurship. Here we’ll talk about four great business ideas that can kickstart your dreams into reality.

Bed & Breakfast

If you don’t mind sharing your common living spaces and you enjoy meeting new people, then opening a bed and breakfast might be for you. This business model is ideal for those who want to entwine their home life with their business since it requires that you be willing to put in the hours to keep your home in tip-top shape for your guests. This means you’ll be getting paid for doing most of the household chores that you already do on a daily basis. If you live in an area that sees a decent amount of tourism throughout the year, opening your own B&B could be a profitable way of putting those spare rooms to good use.

Of course, it’s worth noting that you don’t have to open a B&B in your own home. You could also invest in a separate property and customize a fixer-upper to your needs. Do Hard Money explains that you may be able to find off-season bargains by shopping for a house during the winter. Regardless of how you choose to operate your B&B, you’re sure to enjoy the experience and make some cash along the way.

Subscription Boxes

If you run an e-commerce store, one of the most important factors that will define the success of your business isn’t how many new customers you get, but how many of those people become repeat shoppers. A trending product option you can offer that will ensure repeat sales is a subscription box: a recurring delivery of niche products that your customer signs up for. This marketing method allows you to ensure a steady stream of business for your online store. It also offers your customers the benefit of being able to explore new products that they may not have normally purchased. You can also have a lot of fun with it! According to B Squared, the design of the package is going to be critical in creating long-lasting impressions on how professional your services are. By appealing to your customer’s aesthetic sense, you can make sure that your company is taken seriously and your customers become brand representatives for you.

Dropshipping

Dropshipping is another way that e-commerce business owners increase their profits but not their risk. This product fulfillment method allows online stores to sell products that they don’t actually have in stock by partnering up with a distributor that takes care of shipping orders directly to a customer. Due to changes in customer demands and advancements in technology, distributors are able to provide reliable and fast shipping to customers. For example, address verification works in a unique way to ensure that packages get delivered to the right place. Overall, dropshipping is a great way to leverage technology and boost e-commerce sales in your business. 

Network Marketing

If you’ve always wanted to be your own boss but you’re afraid of the risks associated with starting a business, then you may want to join an MLM or network marketing company.  Tranont explains that, with network marketing, you can take advantage of all the benefits of a home-based business while enjoying a relatively low cost of entry. You enter a business that’s already structured, but then you have the autonomy to set your own schedule and scale at your own pace. 

There are many opportunities for making money as a new business, both online and offline. It’s up to you as an entrepreneur, however, to ensure success by crafting and following a good business plan.
