The trend of sending “packed surprises” started a few years ago. Although it seemed as a crazy idea at first, very soon the trend turned out to be a successful business and a primary source of income for many people around the world.

In few words, the user likes the product you’re promoting, and he wants to have it. After he joins your program, and pays a certain amount of money, you commit to sending the box to his address.

The box is usually sent once a month, and it contains the products you chose for your user. For example, you send him 5 different perfumes every month, and we are talking about the perfumes you consider trendy and of a good quality.

For starters, you’ll need a website, or a good profile on some of the social networks. You need to work out the payout and the send out system. It is important to have all the elements under control (from the procurement through packaging and sending) in order to have a profit at the end of the month.


Health club for millennials

There are two important facts: more and more young people are obese, and therefore having health problems, many young people are aware of their health problems, and want to do something about it.

Even if it might sound strange, the studies show that the millennials drink a lot less alcohol than the previous generations. Also, their wish for professionally supervised sports activities is getting bigger.

People want fitness centers and health clubs. For a good health club you don’t need a lot of equipment, but a lot of great ideas. Don’t forget that you’ll attract the users by being unique and different from others. Come up with something original, save a lot of money along the way, and attract many users.

Parents want the time their children spend on technological devices, to be as productive as possible. The number of the applications for children will be growing significantly in the following years. You don’t want to miss a great area for income.

In order to turn an idea into an application, you’ll need to be familiar with programming, or you’ll need the help of an expert. You can choose to either spend time or money. The income should come, when the application gets to the children.


Software training

Although many will say that the times when people needed to be educated about the use of computer are long gone, I’ll disagree with that.

We’re striving for the society that will be dependent on computers (although it already is today). That will require a better knowledge of computers and special tools for certain jobs.

If you have the knowledge and the experience of working in a specialised application or programme, you can teach others how to use it. This is one of the cool business ideas which isn’t worn out at all.

    I like the ideas focused on younger or more mature groups of people.. I think that’s the secret of success in the future. That’s because those final groups are very well aimed, and we can be sure that there will be customers. Moreover, it’s easier to determine the final customer… Great ideas!

    • Yes, if the business is focused on a precise group of people, it is much easier to aim it in the right direction. It is important to know your ideal customer for a better and faster development of the business.

    There are a lot of children’s applications on the market.
    Do you think there’s more space for new applications on the market?
    I think that the applications market is a bit too crowded.

    • I can tell you one thing. There’s always enough place for one more player on the market. Each next competitor who becomes a part of the market has a more difficult position, but that doesn’t mean the success can’t be reached.
      You can always create something new, more interesting and of a better quality. Don’t hesitate, I wish you the best of luck, just keep going. 😉

  4. Instagram consulting is an awesome business idea. I read that Instagram overtook Twitter in followers. I’m definitely more of a visual person and have never really been into using Twitter.
