The business ideas listed in this article will be hot in 2019 for very good and different reasons, but they are not the only businesses you can start in 2018. They are enough, however, to set your idea wheels spinning so you can start something if you have not done so.
The good thing about 2019 is, just like 2018. A lot of people will find new, creative ways to do old businesses, and that will be the beauty of it.
Technology is making things a lot more interesting. Many startups are springing up to address a lot of economic, financial, power, health, agriculture challenges and so much more.
- Agriculture business ideas
Agriculture has been rightly promoted as one important channel for our country to bounce back on her feet and regain her former economic glory. Young people are realizing this and are doing their best to key in and prosper.
Among all the business ideas listed on this blog, agriculture business ideas get the most search hits on Google, especially the article on bean flour production. The hunger to succeed is there.
To make this work, government should provide resources and incentives to encourage more young people into agriculture.
This has happened a bit with the introduction of grants for rice farmers and export financing for agro-commodity exporters among others. 2019 will be a good year for agriculture. Now is a good time to get started.
- Social media consulting
All eyes are now on 2019, if you know what I mean. Just like in 2015, the battle will be fought and won mostly on social media. One of the Alhaji gentlemen is already spending serious time on twitter, more will follow.
Where am I going with this?
Social media consulting will still be very hot business in 2019. A lot of business are realizing the wonders of social media and will be looking for experts who will help establish their business brand on social media.
Many politicians will also be looking for brand influencers who will help them win their political battle because, like it or not, it’s all going down on social media.
If you have not done so, learn as much as you can about social media marketing. Even if you don’t work for one political Alhaji or another, you can at least establish your own business brand on social media and make your cool money.
Dropshipping as a business has always presented huge challenges for young Nigerians because of the difficulty we have in receiving international payments especially on PayPal.
That notwithstanding, people are getting into the business. Truth is, dropshipping is one of the most perfect passive income, side hustle businesses you can ever think of. The process is so simple and the business so lucrative, those who know how are making a killing.
- Animal feed production business
People worry so much about starting animal production business; only a few see the huge potentials in animal feed production. Fish must eat to grow, right?
Don’t wait till you have a big factory. A friend of mine made huge profits this year in animal feed. He would visit noodles production factories and make a deal to buy off the waste product of noodles (the broken, no-use ones). He would then supply them to fish farmers as feed. He has no company or factory, just his resourcefulness and ingenuity, and he makes very good money.
Animal feed is good business, more so in 2019.
- Waste management
I’m happy with the efforts we are now making to clean up our environment. #TrashHaters is now a thing and more people are joining the movement. The campaign grows stronger on social media with prominent personalities like Oby Ezekwesili championing the cause.
This is the perfect time to learn how to turn those waste to wealth. There’s enough room for everyone because this sector is largely untapped.
Saving the planet will be a big talking point in 2018 and waste recycling business is one way to make it happen. This article will guide you on how to start your own profitable waste recycling business in Nigeria.
Don’t forget to join the #TrashHaters movement on twitter.
