Peoples habits are changing and we are all looking for more convenience whether that be with sourcing meals or ordering online. Many shops however are struggling, experiencing price wars, online shopping however is thriving and small work from home businesses are getting a foot hold in industries they wouldn’t normally, thanks to the power of the internet. Many business ideas are born out of changes that take place either slowly over time or trends that come and go with some lasting the test of time.
There are many changes taking place in thousands of industries, many of the common ones we hear a lot about and experience ourselves are within industries that are changing over time due to changes within social structures and family life. One such industry is the food industry, more people in Britain are ditching the weekly shop and some haven’t done a weekly shop for months. Shopping habits are showing many of us shop every day, if not, every other day, with many of us purchasing the evening meal a couple hours before we eat it. The rise in ready meals continues to grow and shoppers are choosing fresh fruit and vegetables rather than buying days in advance of a meal. Little changes have seen blueberries popularity soar ahead of Strawberries and trends for the very near future include Indian and Japanese Street Food. The need for good healthy convenience foods is still there and the rise in ready meals shows a real demand for foods that can be made quickly and simply and any business ideas that encompass that and get it right, will do well.
The need for flexible delivery services has soared, hugely because we order much more online than ever before and whilst some online stores such as Amazon deliver the next day. Others have twice daily deliveries in the pipeline, we are advancing towards times of sourcing what we want, when we want and definitely look for a reliable service. Whilst online stores are offering the best service, some postal delivery services are needing to catch up and fast. What are customers looking for, they are definitely not willing to compromise and will always go with the company that offers flexibility, ways of receiving their goods even if they are not at home and flexibility with online interaction with delivery times. Many online stores have their own delivery services, whilst others choose wisely because they know it may make the difference between getting the sale or not. There is still a long way ahead though and still lots of room for more flexibility and business ideas.
Many shops and retailers are struggling, locked in price wars but many are looking for a way out, solutions to make their brand and their business better. Many will not entertain opening a new bricks and mortar shop and will instead go online but the business ideas that will thrive for many retailers is creating an experience where shoppers can not only enjoy shopping but can have an experience, business opportunities have arisen in the retail sector despite the downturn and anyone that has a business idea and is prepared to offer a great experience will thrive. Shoppers don’t always get drawn by what is sold but what can be offered, retail therapy, good food and family entertainment can all be incorporated to offer the experience and any business ideas that take this on board will do incredibly well.
