It’s the beginning of the year, and everyone is trying to keep up with their list of resolutions, which in many cases might include something like “start your own business” because who doesn’t want to be their own boss? Starting a business is an incredible experience you learn from each step of the journey, but it’s not that easy. As with most things, the beginning is always the hardest – having an idea, planning, and finding the best resources to make it come to life. But once you’re done with the first few tedious stages, you will have enough momentum to keep going.
So, the first step is to find an idea. Since it’s already 2023, it’s assumed that we already have most of the services and products we need, but that is not true – the opportunities are endless, and the businesses that were successful in the past few years are not dead.
In this post, we will share business ideas that are worth starting in 2023.
1. Freelance Content Writing
Content writing is one of the best businesses anyone can start, and it doesn’t require as much as you think. You don’t need a degree in Journalism or Literature to start writing content. In fact, many of the articles or content you find online are written in a simple way – a way that is easy to read – and that is because website owners are focused on the readability of the article, which means that they want the article to be as easy to read as possible by using simple sentences, common vocabulary, active voice, smaller paragraphs, etc.
So, you don’t need to be a Journalist to start this business. Only some expertise in a particular area that you want to write about. Even if you don’t have enough expertise to write content, you can always work on your research skills and gather the information together.
2. Dropshipping Services
You have probably heard the word “dropshipping” a thousand times on the internet now, especially on money-making YouTube channels. Dropshipping is basically a business model where you are the middleman between the wholesaler and the end consumer. The wholesaler provides the product and you do all the rest, and you can even put your private label on it.
There is another type of dropshipping, which is dropshipping services. This means that you find the workers for different utilities and connect them to the clients. Finding good workers is a hard job, especially for those who are new in the cities they are in, and some don’t have the time for trial and error, asking for recommendations, or doing research which is why dropshipping services is a profitable business model.
3. Home Tutoring Service
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a ton of opportunity for online businesses because everyone wants to continue their regular lives at home. The good news is that most of these businesses are still flourishing even after people resume their regular lives because they realized that they don’t have to go somewhere to do everything.
A home tutoring service connects tutors to students without having to physically meet. You can provide tutors in several different subjects to connect with students who then give feedback on these tutors.
4. Virtual Assistance
This one has been gaining a lot of attention for the past few years, and again thanks to the pandemic. Businesses want to conduct their activities online and are still doing so because of the several costs associated with offices: electricity bills, office cleaning services, water, etc.
This resulted in an increase in demand for people who can provide administrative assistance remotely. There are many administrative activities that don’t require the person to be physically present in the office, such as scheduling appointments, making calls, data entry, research, and many more. Virtual assistance also means that business owners don’t have to move to grow and avoid the troublesome labor laws that come with having staff.
5. Food Delivery Service
If there’s one thing we’re all sure about, it is that people will never stop ordering takeout. A problem that arises when doing so is that not everyone wants to order from the same place, which is an opportunity to start a food delivery service to cater to different needs.
You need to make deals with local restaurants, and they could provide promo codes that people use if they order through your application. If you don’t have enough capital, you can deliver the food yourself till you save up enough to hire your own workers.
