People working in segments like information Technology (IT) are working from home but everyone is not as lucky as them. There are many Industries where work from home option is not possible at all like manufacturing units. This period (March to June) is considered as appraisal time in many organisations, but on the worst side many people have already lost their jobs, most of the people are even facing pay cuts in their salaries. though there are many business ideas which will prove great here we have we have summarized few top businesses that have been proved better during this lockdown period and will even run better when lockdown will be over. Here is the list
Online Gaming, Education and Music Apps
People are sitting at home in this lockdown period, be it children, young or old people, they tend to spend their time playing online games. Many gaming apps like Ludo, Rummy etc. have recorded very high number of downloads during this period. Many music apps like Smule, Saavan, Spotify etc. too are enjoying increased volume and educational Apps like Byjus, Unacdemy etc are also among those which are doing good during this time.
Online Video Platforms
People who have good online presence on channels like Youtube, TikTok, Instagram are enjoying this period as watch hours on these kind of platforms has increased substantially. As Internet cost is very cheap in India, this has too contributed in it. Channels with categories like Cooking, Entertainment etc are very popular during this time. This period is also considered to be great for those who were thinking to start their channel but never got time before.
Website and other similar Platforms
If you are among those who own a website related with news, education, gaming etc. This is particularly a very good period provided you own a website or portal which receive decent amount of traffic. Not only website but in case you are associated with platforms like fiverr, freelancer, upwork etc. , you will continue to get your share of business but again provided you have good rating and great history over there.
Essential Services Shops
Other than many online businesses, shops which sell essential commodities are all time hit. At this time when shops which sell non essential items are closed, shops which sell essential things like grocery, vegetables, fruits, milk, food items are still open and doing good business. Even the Apps like Grofers, BigBasket are doing high volumes at this time and will continue to do because of nature of its business.
Manufacturing Masks and Santisers
During Coronavirus period, masks, handwash, PPE Suits and sanitisers manufacturing units have been very demanding and even when this lockdown period gets over, demand for these two things will persist for long time. Now, even at most of the places it has been made compulsory to wear mask by the government and is punishable offence if someone is not wearing it.
These businesses mentioned above do take time to expand and do not flourish overnight and require rigorous efforts. But, yes once established, will continue to deliver results during and even after Corona period.
