Top 5 Home Based Businesses to Set Up in 2021

810,000 people in the UK have lost their jobs since the pandemic hit the country in March, 2020. An additional 5 million remain in furlough.

Businesses, reeling under the pressures of pandemic lockdown, have laid-off workers to save their own future. While the situation looks bleak for now, businesses are hopeful of bouncing back with a vengeance once the lockdown restrictions are lifted.

A disproportionate number of unemployed will continue to find it challenging to find a job that matches their skill sets. So, what does this mean for them.

For one, it can mean an incredible blessing in disguise.

Everywhere, there’s ample evidence of businesses that survived, even thrived, under lockdown, thanks to their unconventional approach to business.

If you’ve long nurtured a dream of entrepreneurship, then utilize this opportunity to give those dreams wings. Let Photobooths.co.uk help you with some business ideas that you can explore now, right from your own home.

1. Health and Wellness Expert
COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult for UK citizens to physically visit doctors. For them, telemedicine has been a godsend. Doctors are offering their services remotely over text, video chats and phone calls, thus ensuring timely care to patients.

But, it’s not just the doctors who can do this. Nutritionists, gym coaches, Pilates instructors, yoga tutors…the list goes on. People stuck at home are looking for online help to keep their health in top shape. Help them, and you have a booming business right there for yourself.

2. A Tutor
Parents are worried that their children are missing out on crucial learning continuity, despite virtual classes. And, they are looking for reputed tutors who can help maintain the learning momentum of their kids.

Depending on your skills, you can offer classes to high school students, primary students, or even college students. Explore your academic skills, be it in English, History, Maths, Physics, or any other subject of your choice. There are endless online tutoring solutions to help you jump right into the game.

So, if you can build a decent portfolio, you’ll be a successful marketing consultant in no time at all.

4. Drop-shipping Business

Put your marketing skills to the best use by launching a drop-shipping business. You buy niche products in bulk from a supplier, usually an offshore manufacturer, and sell them here in the UK. You can set up your shop on marketplaces like Amazon and Etsy, or launch your own online store. With a drop-shipping business, you outsource all logistics to your supplier, and you handle marketing, finance, customer support, and other areas.

Photobooths are still a craze. Restaurants, cafes, event venues, photo studios, malls…they are everywhere. There’s a fast-growing section of people who love to host parties and offer robot photobooths, Magic Mirrors and Pods to their guests. They are fun, exciting, and amazing crowd-pullers.

Portable photobooths, featuring touchscreens, DLSR cameras, and other bells and whistles are becoming much more popular. They are easy to carry, and don’t take up much space, so your customers may carry them and return by themselves with ease.

DRDO develops SpO2 based Supplemental Oxygen Delivery System: A boon in current COVID-19 pandemic

Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has developed SpO2 (Blood Oxygen Saturation) supplemental Oxygen Delivery System for soldiers posted at extreme high-altitude areas. Developed by Defence Bio-Engineering & Electro Medical Laboratory (DEBEL), Bengaluru of DRDO, the system delivers supplemental oxygen based on the SpO2 levels and prevents the person from sinking in to a state of Hypoxia, which is fatal in most cases, if sets in. This automatic system can also prove to be a boon during the current Covid-19 situation.

Hypoxia is a state in which the amount of oxygen reaching the tissues is inadequate to fulfill all the energy requirements of the body. This is exactly the situation that gets replicated in a Covid patient due to the virus infection and has been a leading factor in the current crisis.

 https://static.pib.gov.in/WriteReadData/userfiles/image/21KI7.jpg

The electronic hardware of the system is designed for functioning at extreme altitudes featuring low barometric pressures, low temperatures and humidity. The software safety checks incorporated into the system are critical in ensuring the functional reliability of the system in field conditions.

The system reads SpO2 levels of the subject from a wrist-worn pulse oximeter module through wireless interface and controls a proportional solenoid valve to regulate the oxygen supply to the subject. The oxygen is delivered from a lightweight portable oxygen cylinder through nasal nares. The system is available in various sizes from one litre and one kg weight with 150 litres of oxygen supply to 10 litres & 10 kg weight with 1,500 litres of oxygen supply which can sustain for 750 minutes with a continuous flow of two liters per min (lpm).

Since the system is indigenously developed for operation in field conditions, it is unique with its dual qualities of being robust & cheap and is already in bulk production with the industry.

The system is a boon in the current pandemic as it can be used in the household for moderate Covid patients for Oxygen flow therapy with flow controlled at 2/5/7/10 lpm flow. The automatic usage has huge advantage in the household, as the oximeter would give an alarm for lower SpO2 value. It will automatically increase/decrease the O2 flow based on SpO2 setting which can be auto adjusted at 2, 5, 7, 10 lpm flow rate. The optimal O2 flow rate conserves the O2 resources/O2 management and greatly increases the endurance.

With its availability and simple to use facility by a common person, the system shall greatly reduce the workload and exposure time of doctors and paramedics to monitor the SpO2 levels of the patient. The automated Calibrated Variable Flow Control for Low O2 levels (User pre-set, <90%, <80%) through a calibrated Flow Control Valve (PFCV) will facilitate in economising the oxygen supply (1-10 lpm with ±0.5 lpm). A moderate Covid patient requires longtime moderate O2 supply 10Litre/150bar–10kg–1500 litres which can sustain up to 750 minutes.

This automated, easy to use Oxygen Delivery System now available is a great boon particularly in these critical times when medical resources are stretched to their limits. Its proliferation would mitigate the crisis in management of such huge number of covid patients in many ways all across the country.
