    Hi everyone,

    I just started my brand new web development company and we are operating in the US even though our seat is in Europe.

    In the last meetings I had with potential clients, all of them mentioned that they're not as liquid as usually because the Corona Outbreak affects their business negatively.

    So the question is, which businesses would you target?

    Which businesses do you think won't be negatively affected by the Virus?

    I would be happy to hear some suggestions.

    Thanks in Advance

    There will always be a demand Food and Medicine. You have to drill it down to see if the companies you are dealing with are able to get their wares to the market. Potentially a delivery company can also do well.

    Right now these are some very uncertain times in the world. Like you said you're going to find the many businesses are not going to spend as much money. They are thinking about what they can do right now to ensure that their business doesn't sink.

    This is where you have to start thinking differently. Instead of just selling web development what about selling the solution of getting online? There are many businesses right now who don't have an online presence.

    Stay with me.

    A gym instructor right now is thinking how will I save my business. You come in and say well you don't have to lose business I can set up a solution for you online where you can have online classes.

    Maybe a person offers private tutoring. You could help them get set up online where they would still be able to tutor their kids all from the comfort of their own homes.

    When the world Zigs you have to Zag. Start thinking differently and about how you can offer solutions.

    This time is more about how can I help my fellow man.

    Hope this helps.

    Guns, knives, crossbows, bows, and anything self-defense related. Along the same line, DIY home security stuff such as cameras, door security bars, window bars, barbed wire, etc.

    Most of the outdoor/survival/prepping niche is most likely doing well right now.

    Gamming/eSports it is raising and tbh when people are home now and bored guess what they are going to do. If you do not have anything in mind what do do around gamming start a blog, news website or a website that gives plenty information and tactics about one game.

    Another big one is entertainment, educational or something related.

    Many business will be effected. But when this all settle down you can work on basically whatever else.

    Fitness niche - especially equipment. Gyms will be closed for a long time and outdoor activities limited. All of those 'gym' people will want to stay fit indoors.

    Businesses and people will need web development now more than ever.

    Yeah, many businesses are short on money at the moment but many also are going to invest on getting online or getting a better online presence.

    Up to you to figure out who is who.

    The vast majority of businesses will not be spending any new capital on marketing. There is just too much uncertainty. The business that will do well are web based entertainment (porn, streaming services, etc), grocery stores (restaurants will be luck to stay in business), prepper niche.

    Unfortunately, we are in uncertain times and its likely that no one will be spending any new many and most likely will be cutting back a lot.
