8 Businesses the World Needs More Of

Starting a business has never been easier, especially with the help of the internet. You can open a business from virtually anywhere and enjoy the financial freedom of doing so. As you consider the trade you’d like to specialize in, make sure it’s something the world actually needs.

There’s an altruistic sense to this idea, but there’s also smart financial need. If you start a business that’s been done again and again, you’ll have a hard time attracting customers.

If you’re wondering about the next business on your list, consider these that are in high demand.

  1. Drug Rehab Centers

Drug rehab is a noble profession, and there aren’t nearly enough centers around to help those in need. Drug addiction is a growing problem, and there’s never been a better time for new rehab centers.

This is a complex business with a lot of legal components. You’re not opening a restaurant, but a sensitive medical treatment center that requires HIPAA certification and licensing. You also need a solid marketing plan to make sure you can attract enough clientele.

  1. Home Healthcare

The average life expectancy is higher than ever, which has increased the number of senior citizens in the world. Naturally, this increases the number of patients in need of healthcare and hospice.

You can go into the noble business of helping seniors while building a strong business. Many seniors need help with a lot of everyday things. Your business can make a huge difference in the lives of the elderly.

  1. Translation Services

Translation services are used to provide essential documents and information in different languages so immigrants that speak little English can communicate. It’s an important job that’s currently in high demand.

After the recession, there was a huge decline in the number of translators available. However, the economy is reviving, and this business is growing, largely thanks to the internet prominence. More companies are also looking to go international, and they have a huge need for translators. There are simply not enough employees who are bilingual, and translation bridges the gap.

  1. Apps for Kids

On average, kids spend more than three hours a day on their screens. The majority of children also live in a home with a mobile device, and a good portion of their screen time is taken up playing on it.

Kids need more apps that are educational and useful. It helps if they’re entertaining too. It’s better than many mindless apps marketed towards kids, and parents will buy your creations if they mean a better way for their kids to spend their time.  

  1. Healthy Vending Machines

The American obesity epidemic is a serious problem without an end in sight. Any organization that promotes healthier living is a good business in high demand, particularly in areas with a large population.

Healthy vending machines that include fruit and veggie packets, flavored waters, protein bars, and other healthy, quick snacks will slowly make the world a better place. There’s a huge market for health-oriented products, and your vending machines will likely be in high demand wherever they’re presented.

  1. Professional Organization

After years of collecting stuff and living in clutter, many people are adopting the life-changing habit of tidying up their lives. They’re downsizing and reorganizing, so things run a little more smoothly.

You can help people and take advantage of a huge need in society by offering organizational services to individuals and businesses. Your job will involve more than just cleaning up or throwing things out. You’ll create a system that clients can use to stay tidy for the rest of their lives. People will pay big money for these life-changing habits.

  1. Social Media Account Managers

Social media is an essential part of running businesses, but not everyone has a knack for it. Social media account managers run the social media accounts for businesses so that they maintain a strong online presence, but don’t have to spend a lot of time on it.

Leverage this opportunity with your own business. You can offer profile, advertising, automation, and engagement services for a small fee. Companies know the value of social media, and when they can’t do it themselves, they have no qualms about paying for someone else to do it for them.

  1. Health Clubs

Health and fitness is an important focus for those trying to improve the obesity epidemic, and opening a new health club is a great way to support that. Health clubs including workout equipment and fitness classes promote greater health for everyone in the immediate area.

But it’s not just any health club that’s in high demand. It’s the millennials you need to cater to. This generation is the largest in the U.S., and they hold a significant amount of retail power. Health clubs that are rebranded as a trendy, healthy social club appeal strongly to millennials, which will keep your company in business.
