Start Up Ideas That Capitalise On special Occasions

For aspiring entrepreneurs out there, coming up with unique startup ideas can be challenging. It seems that every year, many new entrepreneurs arise and bring out new innovative ideas, making you feel like you’re running out of ideas for your own business.

Even so, that’s not enough reason for you to quit on your dream of having your business to manage someday. It may take time before it takes off for good, but it’s your passion and commitment to making your business stand out among the rest that could make a difference.

There are many advantages of being self-employed that you won’t experience if you’re an employee. One is you get to handle your own schedule. You are your boss, so you have the freedom to choose how to operate your business. Second, you can be as creative and as innovative with your business startup.

If you feel like every new startup idea you can think of has been taken, you can continuously develop ways to improve existing business products or recreate them in your own way. You’re the entrepreneur, so you get to play and experiment with ideas that could outshine the current trend. Some good startup ideas look to the bankability of special occasions.

Special occasions may include weddings, birthdays, holiday events, Easter, or Valentine’s Day. These special occasions happen every year, which means you’ll never run out of customers because people yearly celebrate these events. The only challenge left now is thinking of ideas to make money out of these yearly occasions. To help you out, here are six startup ideas that capitalise on special events.

  1. Be A Wedding Planner

One particular occasion that never runs out of opportunities to gain clients is the wedding. Plenty of couples get married every month, which could be a good thing for your startup business. You wouldn’t have to worry about the actual demand. The only challenge is how you’re going to get couples to try your services among the rest.

One way to make your wedding planning business stand out is to offer extra services. It could be helping the couple create and design their wedding invitations, making postcards with dates, or helping them with their wedding giveaways or souvenirs. Not all wedding planners include creating wedding invitations and postcards in their services, which could be a plus point for you. Other than that, if you’re skilled in handling massive events despite being under pressure, this may be a good startup idea for you.

  1. Start Your Own Event Planning Company

Besides weddings, there are still other events to plan every month, including birthdays, anniversaries, and launches. You can collaborate with the local community and start your own event planning service in the area. As you’re a starter, be patient and take your time in marketing your service, and reach out to potential customers until people will recognize you, your service, and your brand. You can also create this business remotely to benefit from its flexibility.

  1. Create Custom Clothing For Special Events

If you’re born with fashion skills and using a sewing machine, take advantage of those skills and start your online custom clothing services. As creating clothes for fashion seems a thing, why not make clothes for special events? You can design clothes for Halloween costumes, Christmas, or Easter. If there are many aspiring cosplayers in your area, market your business and tell them you can create cosplay costumes for them. If you want to go all out, you can start designing wedding gowns too. Soon, people will know your business as the wardrobe for all-year events. Once you’ve saved enough capital, you can build your own clothing shop for your customers to visit anytime.

Special Events

  1. Offer Matchmaking Skills

Did you know that dating sites had always been a thing? It seems that many people are still seeking help in finding their soulmates. Suppose you got the skills to create a dating site and understand personalities. Why not take that as your capital for your own matchmaking website?

Matchmaking sites are primarily in demand around Valentine’s, holidays, or just any time of the year. To make your service stand out among the rest, add your personal touch to it. You can offer online services or personally meet your clients and help them with their dating life. It’s like you’re making a living out of helping other people find their happiness right before Valentine’s Day or Christmas Day!

  1. Open Up A Food Truck

Restaurants and cafes are widespread, and you can see them everywhere you go. If you’ve got that passion for cooking and inventing your recipes, make use of that for your startup business and open a food truck. To market your food truck, you can offer to have it booked for a day on special events such as birthday parties, weddings, and other festivities when you can serve your recipes.

  1. Be An Interior Designer

Plenty of young individuals who’ve recently moved into their new apartments want to make their new apartment feel like home. However, not everyone was gifted for interior design, not even for choosing the right curtain for their windows. If you’ve got an eye for interior design, you can use this skill to start your interior designing business.

If you want to make one step further than other interior designers, you can also offer services on special occasions. For instance, in spite of celebrating Christmas every year, not all homeowners are keen on decorating their homes for the Christmas setting. You can add that to your list of services and be an interior designer that everyone will need all year round for any occasion. Post your past designs on your website, as this will serve as your portfolio for your potential customers.

Key Takeaways

Before going ahead with one of the ideas on this list, do some research and see to it that your chosen startup business is in demand. Once you’ve studied statistics, you can make a business plan to keep you on track of your business and think of ways for funding. Finally, make sure your existing skills are in line with any of the ideas mentioned. Remember, no business is complicated for an entrepreneur who is starting a business inspired by his passion and talent.
