If there is one thing that the present times have taught us, it is the fact that we are massively dependent on the various kinds of on demand apps available in the market for our everyday requirements. Whether it is a get a taxi or to order a hot meal, everything can be done using our mobile applications.
If you are a keen and ambitious entrepreneur, the thought to build your own on demand business must have crossed your mind. So, are you wondering what are the most trending on demand businesses of the present time? Well, our research and analysis wing recently undertook a market research which pointed them to the following business options.
On Demand Taxi App
So long as there are people, they will always need to commute from one place to another. Ride and taxi apps are therefore a very common necessity. Of course, the corona virus pandemic lockdown was a period of complete lull for this business; however, now that things are returning back to normalcy, more and more people are trying to get back to their normal lives. This is where a taxi app steps in. Having your own on demand taxi app can be a very helpful business for a growth in your money and of course, providing assistance to your business.
On Demand Services
It is not just things like taxi that the on demand market is restricted to. Today, the purview of on demand apps extends to all kinds of services as well. With a good app, you can allow your customers can hire any service provider of their choice that is registered within the app and get the services delivered right to their doorstep.
Let us try to understand this better with the help of an example. Let’s say, a customer is looking to hire an electrician. They can download the app, log in to it and then see a list of all the electricians registered within the application.
The app will also show the charges that the service provider wants to levy for said services and the kind of user ratings that his previous customers have given him based on their experience of hiring him or her. Once the user selects the service provider, they can hire him or her and the service provider will reach their home at the designated hour to provide the services.
On Demand Delivery Services
The other very trending and profitable kind of on demand business is that of delivery. And we are not just talking about parcel or courier delivery services. This is the special kind of delivery that allows people to place orders for food or grocery using the app and get them delivered to their doorstep. Say, for example, your user wants to order some food. They use your app. They download and log in to it. Then, they can see a list of restaurants that are registered into the app. On clicking on the restaurant of their choice, they will be able to order the menu offerings from the restaurant. Once the order is placed, the app automatically assigns a delivery driver to collect the order from the restaurant and deliver it to the homes of the customers that placed the order.
Multi Services App like Gojek
Why restrict your users to a single app when they can enjoy the benefits of multiple services from a single application? A multi services app such as the Gojek Clone is getting really popular these days. No one wants to clutter their smart phones with multiple apps. They would much rather keep a single app that can help them get every thing that they want quickly and easily. The popularity of the Gojek Clone app can be attributed to this. There are 4 major parts of the Gojek Clone App:
- On Demand Services
- Common Delivery (Parcel Delivery)
- Store Based Delivery Services ( Order food, grocery, alcohol, pharmacy etc. using the app)
How to enter this business?
If you are planning to start your own on demand business, these are the two important things that you should keep in mind:
Understand what is trending and keep scope for change
The market is an absolutely undulating space. Today, it might seem like something has become popular and hit it off with the crowd, but just the next day, things can take a drastic turn. This is why; when you get your app, you must ensure that you don’t just get the application, but the open source code of it as well.
If you are planning to build the app from scratch, you will have the source code, because, well, the team did the work directly for you. However, in case you are purchasing a cloned app, ensure that you do it only from a reliable white label company that is willing to give you the licensed open source code of the application right at the outset without any extra charge.
Purchasing the app only after a demo of the same
The app world is loaded with a lot of glitz and glam. Everything that you read about an app might sound exciting and lure you into it. But how can you know if the app is exactly how you want for it to be? Whether the app is the right choice for your business? The only way to determine that is to make sure that you take the app for a trial run before you actually invest in it. All you need to do is ask the company that is building the app for you to set you up with a Free Demo of the same. Then you can know for yourself whether it is suitable for you or not.
