5 Businesses You Can Start Tomorrow
Working full-time can be a big distraction for anyone trying to start a profitable small business. The same applies if you’re running a time-consuming business and have little space to figure out what else you could venture into.
While most people believe that only lucky, rich, intelligent, or highly blessed people can be entrepreneurs, they never realise that the fact they’ve been unable to start up a business of their own could be based on their belief that successful entrepreneurs only start big (or they have a general fear of the unknown), and so entrap themselves in their 9 to 5 daily routines.
If you find yourself stuck in entrepreneurial fear or can’t seem to find a business you can start up with your available capital, here are 5 small business ideas you can start tomorrow:
1). Messenger Service:
A messenger service is a business in the service industry offered to people who have little to no time to carry out some minute but highly important tasks. It could be executed by helping a person to go shopping at the market, helping them do their laundry, helping a family relocate, offering a cleaning service, and a lot more.
Since a bulk of the people in need of these services are largely the working class population; whom have little time to carryout their most important tasks, hiring a two man domestic team and marketing your services to them at their offices, homes, and general relaxation spots can land you your first client in a short time.

2). Electronic Game Arcade:
In a country like Nigeria, so many secondary school kids can’t get enough of gaming. While some of them have the privilege of owning video games at home, a larger percentage flock game centres or game arcades right after school to play their favourite games, largely soccer on a playstation or xbox.
If you have a video game and little cash to rent a small store very close to a high school, you can be in business tomorrow.
3). Start A Franchise:
When a business gains traction and gets a surge of customers, they start to expand rapidly across their regions, and in the process, begin to sell franchises to budding entrepreneurs. Unlike starting a new business, franchises can be expensive to purchase; especially since you must maintain a minimum standard laid out by the company at all times.
If you have a substantial capital large enough to buy a franchise, you can start earning a large income from the first day you open up, since people already trust the brand.
An example is buying a KFC franchise. Since it’s a popular brand that people can relate with, you’d start generating revenues from the moment your own KFC store opens.
4). Local Restaurant:
Local restaurants, or “mama put” as they’re popularly called in Nigeria, are businesses guaranteed to put money in your pocket the very first day you start up.
People are constantly looking for small food stores close to their homes, where they can quickly buy an emergency meal that is extremely cheap! Also, commercial motorcycle riders flock these restaurants a lot to have their breakfast, lunch, and sometimes super.
Unlike other larger fast-food restaurants that charge exorbitant fees for their meals, local restaurants charge more than three times lower than them, and so, this drives the interest of the people living around them.
5). Social Media Consulting:
If you’re very active on social media and have a large and loyal following that would impress anyone, you could start up a social media consulting business tomorrow!
First carry out a detailed research on as many brands as possible that you can find and study their social media engagement levels. Highlight those with little to no reasonable social media activities, but have a large potential to generate more product and service sales through social media, then reach out to them.
It’s always easier to sign up startups as your early clients. These lot would end up laying the foundations that’d help you land larger clients on the long run.
