Need a business idea for 2017 ? Well here’s a list, happy entrepreneur(ing).


BUSINESS PLAN SERVICE
Has expansion possibilities

Offer a soup-to-nuts business plan, including market research, the business plan narrative and the financial statements. Plan your fee around the main one that the client will want and offer the others as add-on services. You can give clients an electronic file and allow them to take it from there, or you can keep the business plan on file and offer the service of tweaking it whenever necessary. Have business plan samples to show clients–and make sure to include your own!

 CLEANING SERVICE FOR STUDENTS/YOUNG ADULTS IN HONG KONG

In a culture of part-time helpers at every family managing all the chores around its sometimes hard to realize the single living alone students in a shared flat, young working adults who live alone or as a couple. Since the work isn’t much they usually end up not hiring domestic help full time but mainly rely on once in a week part time help.Starting a business offering weekly services to suit their time and requirement will actually be a big hit in Hong Kong if the marketing is done correctly

CONSULTANT
Has expansion possibilities

To be a consultant, you need to have expertise in something so you can market yourself as an advisor to others looking to work in that area. Perhaps you managed several large warehouses in your career with a drugstore company, you did all the marketing for many years for a large shoe manufacturer, or you set up a chain of beauty supply shops or take-out restaurants. You can use this experience to help others do similar things without making the same mistakes that you’ve done along the way.

EBAY ASSISTANT/TAOBAO ASSISTANT OR USING THE FACEBOOK GROUPS IN HONG KONG

Do you have items lurking around your household that you could sell on eBay? Figure out your asking price and decide whether to auction it or put it in your eBay store. Then decide if you want a minimum bid and how long you want the auction to last. You will want to establish a PayPal account to use for transactions. The eBay website provides all the information you need to know to get up and running with an eBay business.

 EDITORIAL SERVICES
Has expansion possibilities

Here are some of the editorial services you can provide from the quiet of your own home:

Copyediting. This is where fact-checking takes place, and where grammatical, stylistic and typographical errors are caught.

Proofreading. This is the last stop for a “finished” piece. The proof reader makes sure the copyediting changes have been adequately made, and no new errors are created in the process.

Indexing. There are indexing courses available, and you can get indexing software.

Developmental editing. A developmental editor works with a manuscript on big-picture things like organization and content issues.

Web page content provider. Providing content for a website is a good way to do some money writing.

FINANCIAL PLANNER
Experience, training or licensing may be needed

To start, you should go through the certification process so that you can label yourself a CFP (Certified Financial Planner). Your certificate shows that you have expertise and credibility, and this differentiation will help people choose you as their financial planner.

IMPORT/EXPORT SPECIALIST
Experience, training or licensing may be needed

If you don’t already have work experience with importing and/or exporting, you will have a longer learning curve. You can start by learning the basics and hosting educational sessions to teach others what they need to know to get started in import/export. That alone would probably gain you your first couple of clients. If you keep going with educational seminars and expand your reach to outside your immediate region, you could probably develop a sufficient and ongoing customer base very quickly, but be careful not to outpace your learning curve!

 INTERIOR DECORATOR
Experience, training or licensing may be needed

Market your talents to building contractors. People purchasing new homes can often be overwhelmed with the choices and possibilities in home decorating. Design some questionnaires for each primary element and each superior room in the house. Find out how the homeowner will use the home–are there children? Pets? Does the woman of the house wear high heels? Do the home’s residents neglect to remove shoes? How will each room be used? Where might task lighting and ambient lighting be most appropriate?

MARKETING COPYWRITER

Experience, training or licensing may be needed

If you can write copy that gets people excited about purchasing what your client has to sell, you can make real money in this business. Unless you are highly experienced from working in the copywriting field, take a course. There are online courses or classes at community colleges and universities that can give you a leg up in getting savvy at writing copy for brochures, catalogs, advertising and, of course, marketing copy for the web.

PERSONAL CONCIERGE

This business is for someone who is supremely efficient and has the ability to make things happen. People who hire you will expect things when they want them and you need to be able to come through with not only what they want, but with a personal touch and a smile on your face. The most likely clients for a personal concierge service are top executives who find themselves at the office by 7 a.m. and are there most nights until 9 p.m., leaving them little time to do all those things that often need to be done during those precious hours.

 FREELANCE GRAPHIC DESIGNER
Experience, training or licensing may be required

Despite the proliferation of the internet, print media is here to stay for the foreseeable future! Flyers, newsletters, magazines, information sheets, letters, and advertisements are just a few of the types of print media that business hires freelancers to create for them. Web sites and online advertising need graphic design services as well. Even if your expertise is only in design, offer the works for potential clients, including the editorial creation and the printing and even mailing of the final piece. You can line up regular freelancers for those parts of the job you can’t do.

 DAY CARE
Experience, training or licensing may be needed

Perhaps you love children. Maybe you have kids of your own and the idea of taking care of a few more for part of the day appeals to you. Child-care needs continue to soar in the United States. Many people prefer the option of their child being cared for in a home environment while they are at work, opposed to a more institutional-like setting. These things mean that a home-based childcare business can get off and running immediately.
