One of the hardest things that businessmen can do is to think about what niche they are going to focus on. That is actually easier said than done. Sure, you can select this niche because, according to recent statistics, it is doing quite well. But, how will it fare in the future, say, 3 years from now? Will it still be as successful as it is now? No one can tell.
That being said, fortune favors the bold, as the saying goes, so you’d still want to delve into certain niches that have the potential to become popular in the years to come.
Today, I am going to offer some e-commerce ideas that will likely become popular in 2020 and beyond.
Business and Service On-Demand
As a businessman, you have to assume that most of your customers are very busy individuals. This means that they might not have the time to do some of the things that they want to do themselves, like going to the grocery store to buy some goods, among other things.
Providing on-demand services is actually one of the best things that you can do today. By selling something that is quite common today (like delivering pre-planned meals), you can effectively earn a lot of profits simply because you make your customers’ lives so much easier.
Back in the day, most people are of standard or healthy weight which means that clothing stores would only have to sell clothes based on preset sizes. That is no longer the case in this day and age, especially since the obesity epidemic is rampant across different countries.
As a businessman, you always want to provide options to your consumers so that they will have the freedom to choose whatever they want.
And, when it comes to clothing, providing them with clothes that will fit them will surely translate to repeat customers and increased sales.
Therefore, think about putting up an online clothing store where you not only provide your customers with different size options but also allow them to include their own clothing print (if they want to) as well.
Weight Loss Supplements
People want to lose weight. Even though it is hard to believe that seeing that a lot of people are overweight or even morbidly obese, they really do want to achieve a good physique. This is actually true since social media has provided people the avenue to flaunt their bodies and gain some online attention.
That being said, selling weight loss supplements is like selling hot pancakes; they are that popular. Of course, you’d still want to sell products that are proven to work as false advertising can truly hurt your online reputation.
Think about selling not only weight loss products but also vitamin and mineral supplements that will improve the overall health of your customers.
In addition, you might also want to provide training or nutrition courses and ebooks as they are also part of this niche as well.
