Here I have highlighted the top 20 best small business ideas and opportunities for individuals aspiring to become entrepreneurs in the field of information technology:
1. E-commerce solutions
There is a growing need for e-commerce solutions as a result of increasing preference for online shopping. That means adding a web interface ( website ) isn’t any more optional rather a must for brick and mortar firms. Not just brick and mortar companies, even startups that keep on emerging daily are in need of such services.
That being said, there is no better day other than today for launching a business that offers e-commerce solutions including SEO, enterprise resource planning software, shopping carts, order processing software etc to both startups and already established businesses.
2. Provide e-learning services
Electronic learning has won a defined place in the mission of most nations and our country India isn’t either lagging behind. How e-learning helps is that it facilitates education-related services to schools, colleges, universities etc through electronic media.
One who is trained in the domain of electronic learning shouldn’t wait any more towards starting a business that provides e-learning services to such key target markets.
3. IT hardware services
With the use of IT becoming indispensable across all business domains and the growing complexity of computer networks, starting a hardware support services business to troubleshoot hardware failures, computer setup assistance etc to local banks, government bodies and even to small businesses has turned out a cashing cow opportunity in the information technology industry.
4. Web portal services
As internet and e-commerce industries are on rising, a major market slice in the form of hotels, offline retail stores, tourist transport etc exists for internet portals dealing with shopping, travel and tourism, jobs etc.
Furthermore, due to very small seed capital and input cost requirements, this business can prove highly rewarding for those who are best at offering web portal services.
