Why You Want to Start an Amazon-Proof and Walmart-Proof Business

In the post-epidemic era, the most profitable industries of the day and their business operation characteristics need to be properly analyzed. It’s well known that more people are working from home, which brings extremely lucrative profits to various logistics industries and online marketing.

Amazon is a good example of a big name in online shopping. It then looks at how its business works, which is mostly done through the Internet to make transactions easier.

Of course, there is also the success of daily needs and retail supermarkets like Walmart because transactions can be completed through roadside pickup or door-to-door delivery with little face-to-face interaction.

Also, you can see how it has had a big effect on many business models that keep closing, like restaurants that need more face-to-face communication and user experience.

The post-epidemic era has changed the business model and created more business opportunities. In contrast to the service business, which is distinguished by simple, direct, and quick delivery, the home-based business offers more promise and hope for growth.

New business growth opportunities

By looking at the current business characteristics of the service industry and the operational characteristics of successful companies, we can see that many of these online (or mall-sold) goods are basic and standard, like daily necessities, clothing, tools, etc.

The biggest characteristic is that they do not require much contact and communication, and they all revolve around the home scenario as the service target. Look at the current home office life scenario. What other service business has more potential for development? You can look at the proportion of family assets: real estate, autos, investments, etc.

The most direct and realistic is real estate. The swimming pool part of the property is an integral part of the property, which is the second-largest real estate after the housing assets. Then there’s the swimming pool support services industry, which has a lot of room for growth.

The spring of swimming pools

Everyone has experienced the home isolation of an epidemic, and the most uncomfortable thing is not being able to get in touch with nature, especially when you see the sun shining and the streams flowing outside your house.

Spring is the time when everything is reviving and getting close to nature, but the epidemic has isolated people inside the house, and the only possible freedom is the backyard lawn and swimming pool.

But pool maintenance is a very specialized thing, and often its service providers are relatively small and don’t have the same brand names as the Amazons of the industry. From the customer’s point of view, it takes a lot of trial and error to find a satisfactory service, so there are opportunities for growth in the pool service industry with big brand service providers. At this moment, Poolwerx is such a big giant that it already has a 25% market share, which is the hope and spring of the pool service industry.

Poolwerx rejuvenates the pool service industry

Poolwerx is a pool service company that already has a huge market share in Australia and New Zealand, with a strong commercial base, and is now starting to increase its penetration in the US market. The main opportunity for growth is its business partnership model, which offers new opportunities for business professionals who are looking for a breakthrough and a career change. Without much investment, it is possible to gradually grow from an independent operator with one service truck to the scale of having its own independent stores and 2-3 service trucks in less than a 4-year time span.

According to the company’s market operation statistics, its business operation entities make an average of $1.7 million in sales every year with the service and retail scope. It is on such a scale and development trend that other companies in the same industry are not on the same level to be able to compare.

Prospects and hopes

The way Poolwerx does business is the driving force behind the growth of other franchised businesses. There is already a well-developed model for initial investment management, planning, and development planning from the start of a business, as well as a model for growing a business all the way, including market support and promoting it on social media. Giving individual merchants and franchisees a solid foundation for business growth and a wide range of options for growing their markets is a surefire way to make their businesses successful.

The service side of the industry is also very diverse and full of business opportunities, from cleaning and maintaining pools to preventive maintenance, replacing and upgrading pool filters, using and buying chemicals, and other aspects of perfect supply and technical support.

On average, the average annual basic maintenance cost of each home pool can reach more than $2,000, and even more for commercial community pools, SPA pools, etc. So, based on Poolwerx’s business development path, it is full of opportunities and lucrative business profit possibilities.

Conclusion

Business opportunities are all around us. To be able to have more room for development, you need to stand on the shoulders of a giant bird’s-eye view of the world. Poolwerx is a company that can give their franchise business development a more solid foundation and broader prospects for development.
