Mobile businesses are the future. More and more people are choosing to pay for services that come to them, rather than going out somewhere to receive them. As a result, the mobile business world has never been more popular. If this is a concept that appeals to you, then here are three ideas to help you get started.
Pet Grooming Business
People love pets, but do people love grooming their pets? What’s more, do people enjoy trying to get their pet to go to a groomer? The answer to both questions is usually no, they don’t. Therefore, a business idea that involves going to people’s homes and grooming their pets right there is phenomenally convenient.
To start this business, you’ll most likely need to get your hands on various pet grooming supplies to ensure you do the best job possible. You also have to try and get the word out there, so people know your company exists. For me, a great way of doing this is by using social media – particularly Facebook. It’s where many pet owners are, and you can easily share your Facebook page around and get people to give you a call.
Car Servicing Business
The idea here is straightforward; go door-to-door servicing people’s cars on their driveway. It ticks all the boxes of a great mobile business idea; brings more convenience to the customer, touches on a service that’s in high demand, and can be done with relative ease so you can take on multiple clients per day.
Starting this business is very simple, the main things you need are car servicing supplies/equipment, which you might have already. On a more serious legal note, you should probably get something like Traders Insurance because you’ll be working with vehicles and need to ensure you’re covered in case something happens. On an optional note, you could buy/rent a van to drive around in or print a sticker off to put on your car. Both of these ideas are purely mentioned to help with company branding/marketing!
This idea continues the trend of consumers needing to do something but either being too lazy to go out and do it, or just not having the time to do so. When you live a busy life, how can you find the time to think about a haircut or blow-dry? You simply can’t, and it’s something that gets shifted down your list of things to do. With this idea, you bring hairdressing into the living room. Travel to clients houses and cut their hair, style it – even dye it if they want. You provide the full salon experience, without the need to go to a salon.
Again, this is such an easy business to set up as you’re mainly concerned with the supplies. Once you’ve got everything, then you need to go on a hardcore marketing front to spread the word!
You can start any of these businesses if you have the skills to do the work. However, there are loads of other mobile business ideas out there, and I hope this post has given you some insight into the type of services that work well as mobile businesses.
