  3. Suitable Small Business Ideas for This Economy

A validity of a business idea depends on several different things. One of them is your ability to put this thought into action and the second one is the current state of the market. The needs of the market, the value of the currency, political stability, government stances on the industry and the existence of grants are just some of the factors that are worth considering. So, one business idea may be great for one state of affairs, yet, completely disastrous for another. In order to avoid falling under the second category and falling into a trap, there are several suitable small business ideas that have a great chance of thriving in this state of the Australian economy.

Fast food franchise

We live in a world where people are constantly on the go and even those who prefer to eat at home or prepare their own food aren’t always able to do so. Therefore, starting a fast food franchise might be an ideal business opportunity for an aspiring entrepreneur. Sure, starting out on your own could potentially give you an opportunity for a greater expansion further down the line. On the other hand, a fast food franchise can help give you an initial boost. First of all, you won’t have to come up with the menu and decoration. Second, you’ll probably receive at least some form of initial help. Even if this help isn’t monetary, it can make quite a bit of a difference.

Fleet management

A lot of companies have trouble with competent fleet management, which is why specializing in this field might give you some amazing opportunities. Your expenses here will mostly come down to the specialized fleet management software and, in this day and age, you have a plethora to choose from. Therefore, starting a fleet management agency might be a frugal and, overall, smart choice.

For starters, you should also try to get a higher certificate in fleet management or at least a diploma in supply chain management. This is important not just for the legitimacy but also for the necessary knowledge. After all, you’re not just a fleet manager but also a business owner, which means that you also need to know a thing or two about operations management and networking. If you’re to provide a holistic service, you also need connections with related local services. For instance, it’s pivotal for a fleet management business in Western Australia to have a reliable mechanic in Perth. You would be surprised at just how frequently you’ll need their services, even when managing relatively new vehicles.

Funeral home

While some may not have the stomach for this, starting a funeral home is by no means a controversial move, it’s just not for everyone. On the one hand, you’re providing an important service and entering a profitable industry but, on the other hand, you’ll be faced with grief on a daily basis. The biggest problem with this business idea lies in the fact that it requires you to deal with people under distress, which means that they often act quite irrationally (albeit for a good reason). Still, for those who believe that they can make it work, starting a funeral home is more than a great business move and it doesn’t require much in terms of initial investment.

E-commerce website

Finally, you should consider the idea of starting an e-commerce website. Depending on your business model, you can enter this industry with as little as $2,000 to $5,000, which makes your life so much easier. As for the infrastructure, those who opt for drop shipping don’t have to worry about the issue of storage (warehouse management, etc.). While profitability depends on the industry, it’s usually smart to go for a niche where an average value of the order is at least $75.

Another thing we’ve failed to mention is the fact that the above-listed four business ideas tend to be quite resilient to the change of the market. This means that the chances that they’re valid today, yet, non-profitable in a year or two, aren’t that great.
