Due to a lack of employment opportunities by the Government of Pakistan, most of the unemployed youngsters are looking for their livelihood in entrepreneurship. Not supporting the government behavior in this regard, this also a good direction the youth needs to move on. Business, and businesses. This has a better impact on per capita income, national economy, industry, and individual’s lifestyle. Considering the current situation of the country, everyone has different interests but here I can share a few ideas which can help you find a direction towards a good startup.
Marketing on social media
This is a small business idea for a startup; you only need a laptop and internet connection. All you sell is your skill and ability to present or sell stuff of your choice in a wide spectrum of the industry. There are lots of distributors and manufacturers and even resellers looking for marketing individuals. Apart from that, you can create space for stuff to be marketed and this is how you can penetrate through the potential of the market segment that was previously not using marketing tactics for sales.
Home Based Restaurant
Everyone will eat no matter how high things go in terms of prices. Although, with the increase in awareness about hygiene matters, people are now preferring homemade food which you can make at home, and sell it online, and deliver it. This will most likely involve two other individuals to earn livelihood i.e. riders and marketing personnel. This is a way to grow a small business in Pakistan.
I personally believe that any business where your customer is a woman is going to earn you a lot. In Pakistan, women are very trendy and fashion-conscious, makeup is a must for every event and sometimes in a routine as well. You can also include Mehndi art in the services. Since makeup boutique may require a little bit of investment, roughly around 1 lakh, but that’s worth it. All you have to do is to choose the right place and better marketing for this small business.
Berber’s setup is a very successful small business idea and they are earning lots of money with almost no investment except for the décor of shop. Get a shop, decorate it a little and keep it clean. Grow and put more investment, and increase the stations in the shop. But before you start, you need to get trained for at least 3 to 6 months if you are a quick learner.
Everyone wants to be independent these days. Driving a vehicle on your own is a must for almost everyone. Thus, starting up with a Driving Centre will be a profitable deal. All you need is an insured car and skill to drive. This is a very productive small business idea that will require a little investment but it’s definitely profitable.
Bee & Honey
For small businesses, this is a very low investment setup and has very juicy profits. All you have to do is to make a bee farming set up in a suitable place, and just to be honest with your business. People these days pay double for genuine honey.
Fish farming is a very potential small business in Pakistan where the most area is away from seas and rivers, where fresh waters fishes are unavailable or not easily available. This is a very low investment business and it has a lot of profit probability. Furthermore, this business has a longer life of profit generation.
If you have some spare space, as small as half Kanal, you have a very fruitful small business idea, just get two or three pairs of rabbits and keep them feeding right. They don’t need much but grass, soft vegetables, etc. They reproduce like magic, and in six months, you will hardly be able to accommodate them in the same plot. Rabbits are sold at least PKR 300 per unit and their fur is sold at around PKR 13000 per KG.
