Each month thousands of new businesses are started just in the United States. However, not all these businesses will be successful. For new entrepreneurs, one of the most vital decisions they will make early on is to choose the right type of business. A new article from Empowered Ezine helps give potential business owners a starting point for their research into what business to start by presenting some of the most unique business ideas for 2014.
EmpoweredEzine.com is an online article directory where online marketers, entrepreneurs and business owners can share information and learn from some of the industry’s top professionals. The website’s motto “Where knowledge equals power” sums up the goal of the articles posted on the site. The new article continues to help new business owners by ensuring that they are primed with the right information.
This new article from Empowered Ezine starts by explaining, “For a business owner, differentiating their business from the competition is one of the biggest challenges. However, there are some businesses that are so different that this is really the least of their concerns. There have been many successful offbeat and even downright strange businesses in the past and I personally can’t wait to see what unique business ideas 2014 will bring. If you are looking for inspiration for a unique business to start, the following list might be helpful.”
Empowered Ezine goes on to say, “Of course, as with any business venture, starting a unique business certainly has its pros and cons. One of the potential downsides is that the business will not have as wide a customer base as more conventional businesses. However, those who are looking for what a unique business offers probably won’t be able to go anywhere else to find it, so there is usually little to no competition. The challenge is finding a unique idea that really sells. For those who are interested in starting their own unique businesses in 2014, taking a look at these examples could be the starting point for further research.”
The four offbeat business ideas for 2014 that the Empowered Ezine takes a look at in this article are:
- Cat Cafés
- Mobile Boutiques
- Personalized “Handwritten” Thank-you-notes services
- And Goat Rentals
While these particular businesses may not be the best fit for everyone’s tastes and business location, they do get the point across that some odd ideas can actually make for good and even very profitable businesses. For example, though cat cafés might seem like a strange idea in the western world, in Japan some cat cafés charge the equivalent of almost $12 per hour, exclusive of any food or drinks. Goat rental is another one of the ideas on the list that might be a little strange sounding, but as the article points out,
“Why would anyone want to rent goat? Well, it turns out that they are pretty good at clearing weeds, brush and shrubbery. They’re not exactly right for those who want a manicured lawn, but for those who have land that they need cleared, goats are a pretty good option. One company called Rent A Goat markets their “product” as “Cost-effective, eco-friendly, and super cute weed removal”. They are cheap to hire, guzzle grass – not gas, and unlike harmful herbicides, the only thing that goats leave behind is actually good for the soil.”
