REVIEW: 45 Business Ideas We Loved in 2011

This website contains about the 45 business ideas in 2011 that is already summarized. And can be implemented for people, and it may help and very useful for anyone who want to start a small business or that kind of thing.

Let see them below!

  • Career coach – Today’s job search is different than it was even a year ago. In this competitive market, job seekers need all the help they can get.

 

  • Personal social media consultant – Anyone applying for college, a job or building a relationship with a business partner should expect their Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts to be scrutinized.

 

  • Memory organizer – For as long as there have been cameras, parents have been documenting birthdays, holidays and first days of school. But instead of an album, those memories get stuck in digital cameras, video cameras, flash drives, computers and online photo- sharing services.

 

  • Invasive species pest management  – The stink bug and long-horned beetle and other tough pests have opened the doors to a new type of specialist—the invasive species pest management business.

 

  • Tablet app development  – The iPad started the tablet craze, but Motorola, Samsung, Kindle and others are breaking into the market. The rise of the tablet is opening up new avenues for those with a software background to help businesses market themselves in new ways.

 

  • Online video production – A viral video can take a little-known brand and make it an Internet sensation. This is an opportunity for everyone from telecommunications specialists to film school majors to turn their creative talents into a business opportunity.

 

  • Specialty foods provider – The demand for gluten-free, organic, low sodium and lactose-free products continues to grow as more and more Americans follow restricted diets by choice or necessity.

 

  • Online privacy management consultant – Hackers are becoming more brazen and the lackluster economy has only made them more determined to get a hold of sensitive consumer information that they can sell.

 

 

  • Personal concierge – For those among us with more money than time, a personal concierge can pay bills, pick up the kids or do the grocery shopping.

 

  • Senior care services – While some seniors require advanced medical care, many just need help with day-to-day activities or just a little companionship.

 

  • Resale retail – The recent recession forced many Americans to adopt thrifty shopping habits, including hunting for everything from clothes and house wares to sporting goods and antiques at thrift stores.

 

  • Home day care – With the cost of day care rising, many parents are looking for inexpensive yet safe alternatives.

 

  • Yard work – With little more than some work gloves, a rake and a ladder, you could be in business. Landscapers will cut the grass, but homeowners want to leave the weeding, planting, snow removal and other time-consuming tasks for someone else.

 

  • Affordable Computer maintenance – With the proliferation of tablets, smartphones and laptops for every member of the family, there are lots of opportunities to provide private computer services such as anti-virus software installation, desktop cleanups, software downloads and printer hookups.

 

  • Cleaning service – Are you one of those people that love to clean? If so, you may be sitting on a gold mine.

 

  • Energy efficiency consultant – Homeowners and businesses, especially, are looking for any way they can to cut costs, but figuring out how to lower energy expenses isn’t as easy as you might think.

 

  • Recycler – Your average homeowner doesn’t always know where or how to recycle the stuff they’ve got. A good local advertising campaign and a pickup truck are all you’d need to start buying or simply offering to remove scrap metal, old computers, electronics, ink cartridges and other recyclable materials.

 

  • Pet sitter – Recession or not, pets are people, too (or so many a pet owner believes). If you love animals, are reliable, organized and trustworthy, there’s no shortage of work for you.

 

  • Organizer – If there’s one thing to be learned from the glut of reality shows dealing with hoarding, it’s that Americans have too much stuff. And, many junk collectors don’t have the time or skills required to organize it all. If you like to organize and create order out of chaos, then starting an organizing business could be for you.

 

  • Virtual assistant
Many companies let go of their full time administrative assistants during the recession. Now, they need help, but can’t afford a full time person. Virtual assistants work remotely and do all the things a business owner or manager doesn’t have time to do, such as open and answer emails, follow up with customers, invoice customers or pay bills.

 

  • Remote bookkeeper – During the recession, many companies cut their employee headcount to the bare minimum. Very few businesses, however, can live without a bookkeeper.

 

 

  • Translator – As America becomes increasingly multilingual, everyone from doctors to insurance companies find themselves in need of foreign language speakers to help interact with their customers.

 

  • Cost cutter – Ever notice how your phone bill seems to creep up ever so slowly and before you know it. The problem is, few people have time to go over their bills with a fine-tooth comb and call and argue with the provider.

 

 

  • Copywriter – Search engines favor websites with new, relevant and constantly updated content and most businesses don’t have time to devote to generating copy all day.

 

  • Health insurance consultant – Many companies can’t afford a full- time human resources person, and dealing with the complicated nuances of health insurance is more than most administrative assistants have time to deal with.

 

  • Home Renovation – The real estate market has been in the toilet for three-and-a-half years now. It’s hard to sell a house and if you can’t sell, you can’t buy. Furthermore, a lot of people just can’t get a mortgage.

 

  • Tree care – If you’ve tried to call a tree service lately, you probably already know there’s a big gap between supply and demand. Increasingly severe weather in all parts of the country is causing tree damage that only professionals can repair.

 

  • Taxi service – Cars are expensive. Car insurance is expensive. Gas is expensive. And there are a lot of people without a steady income.

 

  • Local farming – People are increasingly conscious about eating healthy and eating local. For many, however, locally grown produce, meat, milk and eggs are hard to find. Urban and suburban backyard farming has already staged a comeback. Now, it’s time for the small time commercial farmer.

 

  • Commuting service – Car pooling saves money on gas and tolls and, in many places, gives commuters access to high-occupancy-vehicle lanes, saving lots of time on commuting.

 

 

  • Small-biz social media – By now, small business owners know that they need social media to promote their businesses.

 

  • Interior design – If you can’t move, redecorate! That’s what a lot of people are thinking right about now. Traditional decorators, however, are still the domains of the rich and chandeliered.

 

  • Education consultant – College isn’t as simple as it used to be. Now, parents and prospective students must wade through a long list of academic choices including four-year colleges, two-year colleges, online courses, for-profit colleges and trade schools.

 

  • Kids consignment shop – Everyone’s looking for a way to save money and what better way than to buy your kids’ clothes for less and sell their old clothes back. Kids consignment shops can include baby equipment, clothes, furniture and books.

 

  • Local Internet marketing consultant – Small businesses know they have to get online, but finding the time to figure out how is proving a real challenge for small business owners of every stripe

 

  • App designer – Research continues to prove that mobile apps or mobile Web browsers are a must for businesses of all kinds. But most don’t have the in-house teams to create them.

 

  • Green consultant – Consumers want to buy from companies that are making efforts to turn their operations “green,” or eco-friendly.

 

  • Off-hours child care – Ever tried to find child care on a Saturday afternoon? Unless you’ve got a standing relationship with a babysitter – and even then, it can be hard – there are few places you can count on for evening or weekend child care. Licensing requirements are different based on your state, but many don’t require a license as long as you keep below the minimum number of children.

 

  • Ecommerce warehouse/shipping  – E-commerce is a huge business, and it’s an especially appealing one for small business owners who can’t afford to rent a retail space. The problem, of course, is that packing and shipping all those orders can be a real hassle.

 

 

  • Party business – We might be in a recession, but many parents will still spend big bucks to throw their kid a great birthday party. That’s where a kids’ party business comes in.

 

  • Tablet repair – These days, it seems as though everybody has a tablet, but have you ever tried to get one fixed? It’s not as easy as you think. In fact, recent research revealed that it costs almost as much to repair a tablet as it does to buy a new one. If you’re capable of servicing and fixing this kind of technology, there’s going to be a big demand for reasonably priced tablet repair.

REVIEW: creativesomething.net

This blog is where the ideas and inspirations are formed!

 

And it explained about how to combine love into creative work, as well as a guide to become an artist. This blog gives so many tips that are useful for other people! It is a very good and inspirational website. SO COOL!!! Daebakk!!!

 

According to Tanner Christensen, creativity is our innate ability to solve problems, dream up new inventions, have big and small ideas, and change our world. And he stated that even scientists and psychologists are hardly explained the process of creativity. Where and how thoughts or new ideas are born or formed.

 

Because the only ideas you can have are founded on what you already know.

You can’t dream up things that don’t exist if you don’t already know about the pieces required to make them up.

“THE BEST IDEAS YOU’LL EVER HAVE ARE THE ONES YOU’VE ALREADY HAD”

 

Cheers 🙂

30 BIG IDEAS, TRENDS & PREDICTIONS

 

This second article is about 30 big ideas, trends and predictions for 2012 of the small-business owners nationwide. They plan to launch the information which can be useful for people who wants to take over the market in the year of 2012. As we can see from the article, Microsoft wants to make another product like Xbox Kinect. From what I see, mostly people like to use an online media, that’s why, by making an online business is a really good idea in 2012. Doing transaction by using gadgets, such as tablets, android, ipad, smartphone, and so on is really common. This is the best way to keep a good relationship between buyers and sellers, because their services should be incredibly awesome, with their marketing strategy that can attract buyer to buy their product.

From the survey, we can assume that mostly almost 80% of consumers prefer to shop through media online, because it’s more easy and practical, rather than they have to go far away from home to the shop. Also for franchise, it only requires low capital budget, but might bring the big advantages.

In U.S industry, more than 50 million smartphone and the tablets are dominating the country. And it could become the benefit for the company, because it is easy to buy or sell those gadgets. Even though the owners should pay extra for the end of 2012, but it is very useful and helpful for doing business
