Business Ideas For The Post Corona World

Want some business ideas for 2020 and beyond? In today's article, we'll give you some great ideas for making a success in the brave new world.

Coronavirus has changed the landscape, and not all business ideas are now viable. Some old businesses will go under. But there are also incredible opportunities out there if you are willing to think outside the box.

Long commutes, busy restaurants and packed offices are out. Working from home, remote conferencing and food delivery is in.
In this article, we'll give you our top two ideas for businesses perfectly suited for the new reality.

Premium Delivery Services

The high street is dead. People had been souring on in-person retail for a while now. You have to drive into town. You have to find a parking space. You have to deal with crowds, pushy salespeople and being on your feet all day.

Coronavirus has only increased this. With social distancing rules, shopping will soon become impossible in person. How will changing rooms work with social distancing? How will the big high street stores ever be able to have enough customers to cover costs?

Besides, most people prefer to shop online anyway. You don't need to leave the house. You don't need to transport all your purchases home. You can browse all the styles and colours and sizes at your leisure. And if you don't like it... you can just send it back.

Most of the big stores offer delivery. But how many offer a truly premium personalised service? Think how you could add real value to a delivery service.

  • If you were delivering clothes, perhaps you could offer to wait while the customer tried them on? You could then take back anything they didn't want. This would save them having to bag them up and send them back themselves.
  • If you were delivering a computer, perhaps you could help them set it up? Older customers might not feel comfortable setting up a new piece of tech. You could combine delivery with service and/or coaching.

Digital Marketing

As more and more companies move online (see above) they will need to master digital marketing. They'll need:

  • A website
  • Social media channels
  • Videos
  • Photos
  • Case studies
  • A blog
  • A presence online like "google my business"

A lot of business owners won't have the time, energy or expertise for this sort of thing. So why not offer to help them.You don't need to be able to do it all:

  • Perhaps you're great at writing but hate the design side
  • Maybe you love designing websites but don't enjoy social media
  • You might be a social media whizz, but no good at writing marketing copy

Just pick one or two skills, and offer to help out. If you're any good, you'll soon have a long list of referrals. And you don't even need to leave the house!
