Small Business Ideas Are These The Best Of The Year So Far

Small Business Idea #1. During a credit crisis, the number of unpaid debts inevitably soars. The inventive solution of one Spanish debt collection business has resulted in a much higher debt repayment rate than conventional agencies (around 70%).

Their solution?

The El Cobrador del Frac (The Debt Collector in Top Hat and Tails) dresses its collectors as Hollywood villains, complete with a large black briefcase and his/her job title (Debt Collector) emblazoned on it.

The idea is that the neighbours will notice and few debtors like that.

Small Business Idea #2.

For travellers on long-haul flights, jet-lag is a constant problem. However, light therapy is a proven antidote to jet-lag and thats why Aroports de Paris has introduced popular light therapy booths at Paris-Orly and Paris-Charles de Gaulle airports.

How many long-haul passengers suffer from jet-lag every year?

Franchise anyone?

Small Business Idea #3.

The funeral business is known for its sombre conservatism. But that doesnt suit everyones taste. For that reason, the Tombstone Hearse Company, offers the transportation of funeral caskets (or urns) in motorcycle-drawn nineteenth-century style hearses. Prices start at US$650.

The Black Velvet Motorcycle Hearse company, instead uses a Harley Davidson Road King Classic and attached hearse with a sidecar for the widow/widower to enjoy the ride too.

Small Business Idea #4.

While we are on the topic of new small business ideas challenging commercial conservatism in the funeral business, some of the latest coffin and urn options include a casket shaped like a 1967 Ford Mustang, Star Trek themed coffins and urns and Major League Baseball variations.

One company, Eternal Image, already turns over in excess of 600k annually in this niche business.

Small Business Idea #5.

If a woman is bored with conventional hats, the new range of LED-based hats from Enlighted Designs could be the answer. Think Blade Runner meets Queer Eye and youre getting close. If any woman wants to upstage the competition at a public event, a luminescent LED hat will definitely do the trick.
