1. Cost of starting a mini importation business in Nigeria
I have seen many Nigerian blogs screaming off their lungs and telling newbies that you can start importation business with 5,000 Naira or less. Truth be told, N5,000 isn’t enough to start mini importation business in Nigeria. If you want to start importing products from outside the country to Nigeria, then you should have at least N50,000.
The list below covers what your N50,000 can do for you.
* Buy products from China
* Ship products to your destination
* Run little social media campaign for your purchased goods.
2. Where to import items from
You get to see wrong information flooding the internet about places you can import items from. But being a business minded person, you want to make a profit, that’s the whole essence of venturing into any business by the way. I will show you the cheapest places to buy products, trust me, this is extremely cheap. I buy some products I use from this site.
3. Sellable products – How to identify a product that will sell in Nigeria
There are niches I have found profitable over the years as a mini importation expert, and I have specialized in them and made outstanding profits selling them.
a. Health products
Every sick person will go within beyond their limits to get well, relying on this you can get very cheap health products from China ranging from belly fat burner, diabetes tea, supplements, etc. there are a variety of sicknesses and diseases, you can make your research to get high in demand products that sell like hot Akara.
b. Beauty products
Slay queens won’t be left out as they can go beyond imaginations to look beautiful. Selling beauty products is a very lucrative business in Nigeria that doesn’t require you to have any basic knowledge at all.
For instance, in 2017 I sold over 500 pieces of black peel-off mask for N12,000 in less than two months at a buying cost of $0.4 making about N7,000 in profit for each product after all expenses. This was because I figured that nobody wanted to have pimples on their faces, and this was a lasting remedy for ending pimples. As far as your product solves a problem, you will get buyers rolling in.
c. Things that make life easy
In this case, it mustn’t necessarily be health or beauty product as people seem to look for the easiest possible way to carry out tasks and activities,
so, look for something that makes life easy.
Examples include; mobile blender, hair straightener, veggie chop machines, etc.
If you follow these niches, you will be able to find sellable products using the same pattern I use.
4. How to get products at the lowest possible price
Buying items from China seems cheap right? But it’s even less expensive when you have a direct contact of an agent in China that will help you go straight to the manufacturers and buy at the manufacturing price.
I will be giving you the contact of the Chinese agents I use to buy things from China.
5. How to get your products to your destination
There is one company I use to bring my products to Nigeria, which i will be giving you. They will notify you once your products gets to Nigeria, and you can go pick it up.
6. How to sell your products online
Selling items has never been easy until the emergence of the internet and social network platforms. The internet has made it very easy for mini importers to sell their products and make money online in Nigeria.
These are simple tips to selling your items online
a. Facebook and Instagram
Facebook and Instagram are great platforms with millions of users trooping in daily. You can utilize the power of social media by sharing photos of your products with descriptions such as the name of the product, price, and what the product does.
Ask your friends to help you share your products on their walls. This will make your products get to more eyes.
The second method of using these platforms to make tons of sales is simply by running ad campaigns. This is the method I used to sell over 500 items of N12,000 in less than two months. Of course, this method will cost you some money, but it is worth it any day anytime.
b. Others methods are later and explained in the guide.
7. How to deliver your products to customers
Finally, you have your first sale, and you are not sure of how to deliver, especially when the customer is in a different state.
There are a lot of logistics companies that promise high successful delivery rate, and yet at the end of the day, your products are not delivered.
Easy way to go about delivering is targeting your adverts on social networks to the same city you reside in. That way, it is easy for you to deliver yourself or send someone reliable to help you deliver.
Otherwise, if you want to target a wider audience, then you should be ready to pay logistic companies to help you ship products, don’t get it twisted, you’ll still make a reasonable profit even after paying your logistic company to deliver your product.
