Let’s get something straight right off the bat: EVERY niche needs an app. It doesn’t matter what industry your business is in, if you’re a business owner, you should be implementing a mobile app into your business model.

Apps are the way of the future, so if you’re looking to get ahead of your competition, creating an app for your business is a great way to do it.

While every business needs their own app, there are a few industries that DESPERATELY need apps: finance, travel, health & fitness, event planning, and educational streaming. If your business falls under any one of those industries, you will have a huge competitive advantage over your competition if you create an app for your business.

Let’s take a look at each of these niches a little more closely…

1. Educational Streaming Apps

The online education industry has exploded in recent years and will only continue to grow. With apps like Netflix and Hulu bringing entertainment on the go, people want to bring education on the go with them as well.

If you are an online educator, course creator, or coach, you can put your knowledge into an educational streaming app and offer it to your audience as a way to easily connect with you and your content wherever they go!

2. Finance

One of the most challenging parts of being an adult is learning how to manage your money. Wealth management is crucial, but most people don’t want to take the time to really learn how to manage their money well.

That’s why creating a financial app that teaches and helps users manage their wealth is in huge demand. Plus, if you can add some gamification to the app to make finance FUN – you’ve got yourself a killer app idea!

3. Fitness & Health Advice Apps

Now, you might be thinking, “Health and fitness? Aren’t there like a million apps already in this category?”

Yes, you’re right, there are.

However, the health and fitness industry is HUGE and there are so many different types of diets and workout programs nowadays, there is still a huge demand for apps in this industry.

With that being said, instead of creating a generic health and fitness app, you will want to focus on a specific aspect of the industry like: keto, paleo, CrossFit, Zumba, etc.

4. Event Planning

If you’ve ever planned an event before, you know how hectic and disorganized it can get. Imagine how much easier and smoother the process would go if you had an app to help you plan every step of the way?

The event planning niche is lacking big time in the app department. So an app that helps users plan important life events like weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties, etc. would be in super high demand! If you have experience in the event planning industry, I definitely recommend you jump on it right away.

As I mentioned before, if you are a business owner, no matter what your niche is, you should be working on creating an app for your business. However, if your business falls under one of the five niches mentioned above, you can have an even bigger advantage over your competitors if you are one of the first ones to create an app in that industry.
