How to choose from a variety of your business idea and succeed
Now let's look at the second point in more detail in order to understand how to choose the most popular and profitable business idea correctly.
The business of the future - what is it? What will be in trend, which niches will come to the fore? Let's fantasize, here are some of the most interesting business ideas that can be implemented in the future.
Self-contained store. The high level of interest in creating things using 3D printers suggests that a lot will be produced with them in the future. So when you come to a hardware store, you can print on the spot the product you need, for example, a bucket or a scoop.
Human tissue regeneration. In the future, artificial repair of skin, tendons and muscles may become a popular business. The study of the features of tissue regeneration is already underway. In general, it is assumed that medicine will actively develop and more than half of all world capital will be concentrated in it.
Electric vehicle charging stations. In the future, the problem of depletion of energy resources will lead to the great popularity of electric vehicles. The development of networks of charging stations will allow those who are the first to implement this idea to get rich.
DNA decoding technology. The development of such technologies will allow parents to identify the development of a child's disease in the early stages of pregnancy. By scanning the DNA of adults, the early stages of serious diseases can be detected. Biotechnology will be greatly developed, this trend of the species is already now.
Technologies for protecting private information. The constant development of high technologies leads to the problem of losing control over information, the danger of its theft. The development of advanced technologies to protect personal information can be a profitable business for innovative companies.
Extraction of resources on asteroids. The depletion of resources on planet Earth forces us to look for a solution to the problem of resource availability outside. It is so reliably known that often asteroids have huge reserves of rare metals. In the future, the development and production of them may become a way to escape from total collapse.
Multi-storey farms. In the future, when the problem of lack of space becomes especially urgent, the ability to build multi-tiered, tens of floors of the farm will solve many problems. The main ones are: the provision of megalopolises with food, and air purification due to green spaces.

The modern world is not possible without business - it is a mutual connection on which everyone depends. You don't come to this understanding right away. I am in the tenth grade and in social studies lessons I began to pay special attention to the examples given to us by the teacher on economic topics. Indeed, business is "proactive economic activity, carried out at the expense of its own or borrowed funds at its own risk and responsibility, which sets the main goals for generating income and developing its own business" 1. Since this is an initiative activity, then business can be called the “locomotive” of the economy and it will be our engine into the future. How did business become such an engine? If we consider his history in a simplified manner, we can say that he changed like a child: 14-15 centuries - he grew up, 16-17 - gained strength, 18-19 - studied and grew wiser, 20-21 - became a full member of civil society (civil society - this is the sphere of self-manifestation of free citizens and voluntarily formed non-profit-directed interventions and arbitrary regulation on the part of government and business 2). Of course, the main component of economic relations is needs - this is a need or lack of anything necessary to maintain the vital activity of an organism, a human person, a social group, society as a whole, in general, an internal stimulus of activity. The satisfaction of the same economic needs is an internal incentive for production, distribution, exchange and consumption within a certain system of socio-economic relations. But only he gets ahead who has managed to win in tough competition - the struggle for his place in world business and to combine the needs, income and social component of society.
In the modern world, everyone knows about the social component of business. Both big and small businesses are important. The production of even a small product is also a business. The smelting of steel at the plant is also it, only large. Serious business strengthens the country's economy, not
Current trends that will affect the communication of brands with consumers
There is more and more information on the Internet and the world around us, the interaction of users with brands is getting shorter, and their requirements for communication tools are getting higher. Techniques and techniques that seemed new and interesting a year ago, today no longer cause their former delight, and some are completely annoying. In this regard, entrepreneurs and marketers are looking for new non-standard solutions. The agency Punk You Brands shared its vision of trends that will influence marketing in its corporate blog.
1. Mobile devices will become the dominant platform
Smartphones, tablets, smartwatches and other wearable gadgets (as well as glasses, lenses, microchips and so on) will completely change and rebuild the world of marketing. The more the world is flooded with smart devices, the more personalized the relationship between consumer and seller becomes. And those companies that began to use this earlier than others will develop this direction and play a leading role in it.
2. Openness and customer focus is the key to a successful business
Consumers want to be more involved in the lives of companies or brands. Closed and uncommunicative brands will not have a bright future if they continue to adhere to this policy of relations with their customers. According to analysts, by 2021 consumers expect more transparency and openness from companies.
Sincere brands - especially those that are not afraid to admit their own mistakes - will be on top, as will companies that embed social responsibility as part of their culture. Openness and the ability to admit your mistakes helps to form a close bond with your customers, and without such a connection it is more difficult to retain customers.
3. Content is the new currency
In the online environment, educational and entertainment content is one of the key ways to attract people. But from now on, content can be not only static (like texts or posters, say) - it can use new formats: virtual reality, video games, 3D, 4D. These features are already available on the Xbox and Oculus Rift platforms.
In the near future, technologies like HoloLens (virtual reality glasses) will become more widespread and completely change the very essence of serving and creating content. This is one of the most disruptive areas of marketing to create a new standard of engaging content for consumers.
4. User generated content will be more valuable
This means that testimonials, video reviews and notorious blog posts about new products will become more important yardsticks than standard PR events and boring advertising from hired actors. Only a positive user experience will give a brand a good reputation. Therefore, such collaboration between brands and consumers will be beneficial to both parties.
They already look like new media, because more and more often in the news you can find the following wording - "the video has gained viral popularity in social networks around the world"; this shows how widespread they are around the world and what influence they have in modern society. Thanks to the near-ubiquitous access to high-speed internet, social media content has already become more important than any other format, be it classic television or obsolete radio. That is why Vkontakte, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram are the future in content posting.
Advertising, as they say in a broad sense, is an engine. Business promotion, at times, in itself is a business idea. With an abundance of standard channels - advertising on the Internet, in the media, or just word of mouth; there will still be opportunities for a fairly simple, but unusual and effective promotion - the main thing is to be smart in time and find the very zest inherent in each case. And if an entrepreneur really loves his job, knows it, has an expert opinion, he will definitely find something to surprise and attract a client. And not everything is as complicated as it seems. Most often, solutions lie on the surface. And the examples below testify to this.
Sportswear and footwear manufacturer Puma had a choice - to advertise their products or pay one person. They chose the second option.
At the 1970 FIFA World Cup, a few seconds before the final match, the Brazilian soccer star and future world champion, Brazilian footballer Pele bent down to tie his shoelaces. These close-up shots flew around the world.
Needless to say that the football boots on Pele's feet were Puma, and the company itself paid the footballer before the match to start tying his laces a moment before the start?
This non-standard advertisement brought fame and popularity to the German manufacturer for many years to come, and the cost of advertising turned out to be much lower than the cost of its placement in the stadium.
Can you compete in sales with megacorporations and win it? And if there is one person against several corporations? You will say - it is impossible. And we will answer - you can!
Robert Taylor, already in the 70s of the XX century, understood that liquid soap would become a super popular product and, practically, would replace traditional soap. Therefore, he started selling liquid soap. Which immediately gave him problems - neither the liquid soap, nor the pump package - could not be patented to obtain exclusive sales rights for them. Because - liquid soap, as well as the design of pumps (pumps are also pumps) - mankind has been using for a relatively long time and there was nothing new in them. Therefore, anyone can produce packaging, pumps, and everything taken together.
And, as soon as liquid soap gains popularity among consumers, large cosmetic industries will immediately enter the market and "erase" Taylor's business into powder, washing. Robert realized this immediately, and therefore decided to act outside the box.
At that time only two enterprises produced pumps for liquid soap in the country. Robert Taylor bought out all their existing products for $ 12 million (which was much more than all the money Taylor had), and also loaded their production for several years in advance. Thus, any, even the largest, cosmetic production for its liquid soap could receive the most important part of the packaging tube from these enterprises - the pump - only after a few years.
Taylor's risky step led to the fact that his small company conquered the entire US market in several years, since he had no competitors in liquid soap due to the lack of pumps. After that, Robert sold the business to the Colgate-Palmolive concern for an impressive amount - more than 60 million US dollars. Thus, he not only covered all his debts, but also earned a fortune.
What to do if competitors prevent you from entering the market and turning around by cutting prices as much as possible, that is, engaging in outright dumping? This has proven to be a great way to cut costs.
