Does the current crisis situation around the coronavirus also have a positive side? Definitely for resourceful business people.

Private individuals stock up on respirators, disinfectants, toilet paper, canned goods and other everyday items. In the media, there are more and more stories about exorbitant prices from online retailers who thought about the panic business at an early stage.

Think creatively and benefit

Entrepreneurs are now in demand with their products and services to think around the corner and thus to meet customer gaps and needs.

Basically, the entrepreneur can choose between direct product sales, brokering on the Internet on a commission basis and offering services. It must be ensured that in most cases there is a dependency on shipping service providers and that this is the limiting factor of the new business idea.

Selling products directly and yourself locally or in an online shop will be a less sensible alternative to actual business for most entrepreneurs, as neither goods nor materials can be delivered within the short time, and an online shop can be set up to sell. So there is only the service or the brokerage on a commission basis. The brokerage can, but does not have to be, a website of its own, as does the service ideas described.

Another article from the founder's lexicon explains how brokerage works on a commission basis via your own website or via social media (Facebook, Twitter or WhatsApp). In technical jargon, this business brokerage is called affiliate marketing or partner program. Special web links for products or services are generated and these are sent and recommended to friends, acquaintances or unknown contacts on your own website or via WhatsApp, Facebook or Twitter. The closer the contact and the more appropriate the recommendation, the greater the success. Amazon operates one of the best-known partner programs with which every product that is offered on Amazon can be recommended for a commission.
