Over the last few decades, the world of business has changed dramatically. The shift in stance regarding transport, from seeing it as a luxury to viewing it as a necessity, plus the rise of internet commerce, means that businesses have to be on the move, able to deliver, and must take their custom to their clients.
Mobile businesses fit this niche perfectly, and they can be a great starting point for entrepreneurs. Economical to run with a diverse customer base to tap into, they’re an ideal way to build a following and get your name out there.
If you’re looking for inspiration, here are three that you could start tomorrow…
#1: Street Food :
Mobile businesses are usually food-based, and one of the hottest mobile business trends of the moment is street cuisine. If you have a talent for cooking up a storm in the kitchen, think about getting your wares out to the rest of the world in a specially equipped van. Although there will be lots to consider, from ensuring that you’re properly licenced to having the right power supply and cooking utensils, you could use your wheels to get around town and build a client base before trying to found a more permanent venture.
#2: Dog Walking :
There is also an increasing demand for dog walkers, thanks to the long hours working culture taking owners away from their pets for the day. For those who enjoy the great outdoors and snuggling with pooches, this presents a perfect opportunity to combine your two loves and build a sustainable business at the same time. Kit yourself out with appropriate transport, advertise your services, and simply wait for the offers to come flooding in. What better way to spend your days? Don’t forget to check what insurances you will need too.
#3: Florists :
If you want something a little different, how about thinking outside of the box and considering a career as a mobile florist? Entrepreneur Jenifer Kaplan offers the ideal inspiration, and has proven massively popular amongst the L.A. elite. Combining a strong social media strategy with a fresh and innovative idea, she has managed to quickly gain a following, and create a small but successful business to help establish herself.
If you’re looking for inspiration, could one of these quick-fire start-ups be the perfect choice for you? With an innovative approach, carefully formulated business plan, and the right set of wheels, you could be looking at the start of a very successful career, so take a deep breath, summon all of your courage, and unleash your ambition today.
