2016 Small Startup Business Ideas to Think About


We are nearing the end of the third quarter of 2015. As we step into the fourth and final quarter of the year, let’s take a look at small businesses to consider for 2016.

Be your own boss and take these five small business ideas at your next consultation with your trusted business brokers Victoria for 2016.

1. Yard worker

There are already plenty of landscaping businesses out there, but how many of them will provide services such as raking, weeding, planting, snow shoveling, and hanging up or taking down holiday decorations? You get the idea. What’s more is that all you’ll need for this small startup is a good ladder and some sturdy work gloves for starters.

2. Errand runner

People have plenty of personal tasks they need to accomplish, but with today’s rapidly changing society, it can be physically impossible to do so many things with such a limited amount of time. Entrepreneurs may think that the target market for this sort of business revolves only around the elderly and the disabled. But stay at home moms and individuals who work long hours per day could benefit a lot form this type of service.

3. Cost cutter

It’s not easy to stick to a budget, even with telephone lines. This is a reality for everyone with a phone, so what better way to kick-off 2016 than with a startup cost cutter service business. Since most people don’t have time to go over their phone bills thoroughly to identify any hidden costs they can actually contest with their providers, they need a cost cutter business that can help them save hundreds to thousands of dollars on their telephone bills.

4. Virtual bookkeeper

Year after year, many companies are forced to make the difficult decision of having to cut their employee headcount due to financial difficulties. However, one thing businesses can’t function without is a good bookkeeper. Not all businesses can afford to hire a bookkeeper for a full-time office position, so starting a virtual bookkeeping business and helping these organisations acquire accounting or bookkeeping services for a fraction of the cost will be a big hit.

5. Energy efficiency advisor

For home and business owners, cost cutting is pretty hard to resist, but is not something they always know how to do. Starting an energy efficiency advising business to aid in lowering energy expenses in homes and offices through the use of insulators, smart metres, water usage reduction systems, etc. is a valuable service people will flock to subscribe to.
