Top 20 Great Service Business ideas for 2018

An offering one provides to another in order to satisfy his or her need is called as service. Unlike a product, a service is essentially intangible and does not transfer the ownership to the final user. When products are bought, the end user who buy it also registers its ownership and that does not take place while a service is bought by the customer.

Well, owning a service business has many benefits over a product-based business. Number first, unlike a business that targets a product, you don’t have to keep and offer free and expensive samples to your customers.

Number second you can easily customize your service any time you want but customization of the product isn’t possible instantly. It takes enough time to customize a product. Third, it is much easier to differentiate a service that you can not expect in a product. Moreover, a product based business takes much time and involves high costs compared to a service based business.
