7 Practical Ways to Start Egg Supply or Delivery Business in Nigeria

According to Google Trending searches (in Nigeria) about how to make money or start a profitable business, a lot of Nigerians like you are asking questions like ‘How can I start a business with 1000 Naira in Nigeria?’, ‘What can I do to Make Money in Nigeria?’, ‘How do I start egg supply or delivery business in Nigeria?’ and sort of questions like that.

I will show you the researched and working guide on how you can start a profitable egg business supply or distribution business in Nigeria even if you are on a very low budget.

Egg supply or delivery business has been hidden to millions of millions of people in this country and that’s the reason most stranded graduates ventures into illegal businesses. Of course, what do you expect them to do? They went to primary school, secondary, wrote JAMB for years, got into the university (suffered big times), and managed to serve at NYSC but after all these years, time and money spent, no JOB!

Why is there no job for our graduates in Nigeria?

It’s simply because, the rate at which millions of students got admitted into the universities and millions of graduates are also leaving out of universities (simultaneously) is stunning, crazily, and overwhelming! Even if they luckily get a white-collar job to do, they will still remain the same or moving randomly in life but the good news is that entrepreneurship can help you get heard, seen, and paid like it has helped a lot of entrepreneurs in Nigeria.

Start this egg delivery business in Nigeria (if you really want to) because of its health benefits which is the greatest reason and because it’s highly consumable.

In summary, below are the reason why egg supply or delivery business in Nigeria is advisable and lucrative:

Benefits of Egg Delivery Business in Nigeria

1. The egg is very rich in nutrients such as protein, vitamins, and minerals with yolk which contains cholesterol, etc. (it contains all nine essential amino acids)

2. It’s highly recommended for pregnant mothers and especially during breastfeeding because it contains a substance known as ‘Choline’ which is essential for brain development.

3. It reduces the risk of stroke or heart disease.

4. It is generally eaten at home as food

5. It’s used in restaurants, canteens, hotels and other places

6. Confectioneries make use of eggs to make biscuits, bread, cookies, buns, and other snacks, etc.

Having those 6 facts about Eggs in your mind, the next thing is ‘how can I really start this business?’ let ride on!

How to Start Egg Supply or Delivery Business in Nigeria

1. MAKE A GOAL:

The first thing you need to have before getting into any business is your ‘Goal’ and passion to pursue that goal. Egg supply business is a delicate and lucrative business, it’s also likely that a lot of people will try to discourage you because they are afraid that you might go bankrupt if you do the business.

You can also the person who is discouraging yourself because of the unforeseen risks you might have to face in this business but, you need to define your ‘Goal’ and ‘Determination’. Nothing in life comes easily especially a successful entrepreneurship journey.

So, have a stubborn goal that you must do this egg supply business and you must make it in Nigeria!

2. GET YOUR CAPITAL:

A goal without any action is a ‘goalless’ goal! I believe you would have gotten some funds to finance your business. But if you have nothing with you but you really have the righteous goal to start this business, you can ask your family members, friends, or go to your bank to obtain some loan to kick-start this business.

If none of them is responding to your request, then you can work it out yourself by doing some menial jobs in order to raise some funds or read this guide on how you can make legit money online.

How much do you need for this business? According to those who are already doing this egg supply or delivery business, they suggested that you can start with the sum of N80,000 – N100,000.

3. GET A FARM:

You have gotten your starting bucks with you, right? Good! The next step is to go in search of poultry farms where they sell out eggs is cheap and large quantities.

This is the most important part of your business. Even if you have a lot of money to invest but you got a bad and unreliable farmer or farm, you can lose a lot of customers and even go bankrupt! I’m not scaring you, I’m just telling you that you need to be very careful in selecting the ‘source’ of what you want to invest in.

Ask your friends, search on google, and keep asking a lot of people where you can get a very reliable poultry farm. The more you search, the more you discover many farms.

Try to shortlisted those ‘many farms’ to few (like 5 or less). The best way you can do this is to carefully study how they operate, interact with customers, and their level of loyalty. After shortlisting them, make sure you build a close business relationship with them all, be honest with them (in case you need Eggs on credit, and so on).

4. GET YOUR APPARATUS:

You need to set up your equipment and your shop to host customers for your business. The following are some of my suggestion about the materials and assets you need for this egg supply business in Nigeria:
• A spacious shop that is free from flooding or shiny sun. Make sure it’s well roofed, free from rodents and should be attractive enough.
• Some crates and boxes to hold the eggs
• A Van to transport the eggs from your shop to customers’ places. This is not really compulsory but it will be very helpful to gain more customers and earn you more income. You can also plan with a cab driver to be helping you out.
• Get a business card and invoice book.

5. BUY SOME EGGS:

Do you remember that I suggested you start this business with at least N80K – N100K? Don’t use all the 80k to buy Eggs at once. Remember you don’t have customers yet and eggs can spoil easily when it’s mishandled or kept carelessly.

Make sure you did enough research about different prices of eggs from farms, from wholesalers like you, and how much the general consumers are buying a piece and crate of eggs.

When buying your eggs, don’t just buy from a farm but from at least 3-5 farms to know which one is cheaper, good and mostly bought by customers. After buying, keep your shop well ventilated, free from cataracts, sun, and make sure you wisely arrange them into crates.

Some people arrange their eggs in a bowl or box instead of a crate. If you feel like doing the same thing, make sure you put enough clothes inside the box or bowl before arranging your eggs in it.

6. START MARKETING & PROSPECTING:

Your egg supply or delivery business is gradually getting together, right? But, here is one of the biggest factor you must consider before you can make more sales.

How can you market your egg business in Nigeria like a pro? The following are a few tips I can give you:
• Make and distribute business cards to friends, family members and anybody you see
• Make a banner to advertise your business in your street, crowded areas, etc.
• Approach and make friends with chefs, market women who make sure of eggs, canteens, restaurants, or hotel manager owners.
• If you have enough money, you can do jingles on Radio stations.
• Advertise on related blogs or websites that can get you heard, seen, and patronized.
• Social media marketing is very important and you should embrace it.

Some people also offer cheap price as one of their marketing strategies, you can try it or consider doing promo or bonanza.

7. REGISTER YOUR BUSINESS:

This is very important if you don’t want to get yourself into trouble from some trade associations or some government officials. Registering your business is very good and advisable in such a way that it will make your business look more professional and trusted.

The only legit place to register your business in Nigeria is through the Corporate Affairs Commission (C.A.C). You can register it yourself or hire someone (especially a trusted lawyer) to do it for you.

I have a well-written article here on how you can successfully register your business in Nigeria without facing any issue or falling into scammers’ trap. Read from the hyperlinked quote below:

READ: How to Register Your Business in Nigeria with CAC

CONCLUSION:

That’s all about how you can start egg supply or delivery business in Nigeria. If you are reading this, it means you have read more than 1500 words on this topic which some people find tedious.

My advice to you is that, if you are really determined to engage yourself in this business, wait no more! Just get yourself working on it and remember that thousands of people like you are venturing into a business to do. Here is your chance to get yourself doing something.

    7 Super Professional Tips to Build a Successful Business in 2022

    Published

    on

    It is a new year and you’ve been thinking of how you can build a successful business but don’t know how or where to start. Let’s talk about that and see if you’ll learn something, or be inspired.

    Some businesses fail because they’re following old blueprints which no longer work effectively to build their startup.

    We’ve learned a lot between 2020 and 2021, and we’ve seen how businesses are affected by the ongoing Corona Virus pandemic. But ideas to start or build a business are waxing stronger in us, how are we going to bring these ideas to reality?

    But is 2022 the right time to start a business?

    Yes, it’s never too late to start a business in 2022 and you are still going to see rapid growth if you put in all the efforts.

    Regardless of the Coronavirus and its variants, you’ll agree with me that starting and building a business these days is easier compared to a few years ago as a result of technology and more investors who’re ready to provide capital for a futuristic business plan.

    According to a report, investors spent more than $140 billion to support startups in 2017 and the figures have increased ever since then till date. This shows how people like you are creating something or a platform that solves a ‘problem’ and how people are ready to support it. 

    If you’re also planning to launch your startup, you’re welcome, it’s never too late to be phenomenal.

    Aside from investors who’re ready to invest, you don’t necessarily need to build your business by renting a big hall or apartment for office use, thanks to COVID-19, you can gather your team and work remotely, while you’re saving a lot of money that will go into office setup.

    If you have a good business plan or startup idea and you’re worried about what to do next, the following tips will help you get started;

    7 Tips to Build a Business in 2022

    #1. Do Your Research and Understand Your Mission

    You see, a lot of people see other people building stuff and they got jealous to build something too – this is a wrong motivation to start a business. 

    You have to think clearly about what you want to do, you ask yourself: “In what way(s) can this idea or business help people?” – emphasize “help people”.

    If you want to start a fashion design company, do your research thoroughly and understand that you’re about to build a type of business some people have built already. So, how are you planning to get better and beat your competitors?

    For instance, can you think of a unique fashion trend and dominate it for the long term? If yes, what fashion trend and how can you hit the market with your idea?

    You have to plan all these, you just don’t voluntarily jump into the ocean without knowing if it’s safe or not. If it’s not safe, then how are you going to survive?

    #2. Get a Team Members with Common Goals

    The spirit of being the CEO and (sole) founder is part of what’s killing some businesses and startups to date. I’m not saying you can’t build a business alone, you can! But you can’t survive alone. If you survive alone, you won’t go far alone.

    Build a Successful Business

    People (Team) Working Together – Credit: Pexels.com

    You have to understand this concept. If you read about big business builders in the world, you’ll notice one thing that’s very common to them – they don’t build alone! 

    Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk, etc., will tell you that they called their friends when they were about to start their company. Why? It’s simply because they need teammates who can work with them to achieve their primary and respective goal(s).

    The reason is simply that if one is falling, another person will lift him. And this boils down to you looking and calling the right people to join you or else if you fall, that’s the end of the business.

    So look for the right people in your circle, during meetups, on social media, share the business idea with them and be patient to see those who’ll be ready to join you.

    Getting team members here is different from hiring people. You have to look for someone or some people who’re ready to take ownership of the business and work diligently.

    They can in turn be your co-founder, CTO, etc… Just make sure you’re careful and patient enough to see someone with the same common goal.

    #3. Start Building with the Little You Have:

    You know the type of business you want to build and you have someone or some people who are ready to work with you. The next thing is to start building that business with the little resources you have.

    The mistake most people make is that they’re waiting for the “perfect time” and that time translate to when they have sufficient money to invest in the business. The truth is that that perfect time won’t come unless you start now.

    And I will like to say this if you’re starting a new business but you don’t have money to invest personally, you’re still not going anywhere. It’s either you get a job, make money and come back to that idea or, you sell the business idea to someone else.

    The bottom line is that you have to start from you, even if you will need investors to inject capital into your business, you have to show them something – your ideas + efforts.

    #4. Create Good Information and Communication Flow

    As part of what you’re starting with, is how you can bridge the communication gap between your business and your target audience (investors included). That’s why you need to invest in creating that information and communication flow.

    This is not a big deal at all, you just need to create an online presence for your business by getting a website, getting on social media, and investing in Email marketing or CRM tools.

    If you can’t build the website yourself, you can hire freelancers to get the job done for you, there are free email marketing tools like MailChimp that you can get started with. You can hire an expert to manage your business’s social media handles for you too. The person will be in charge of content creation, posting, and attending to comments.

    Having a website is very important, if it’s just a landing page, do it and let people know about your business from there and use your social media handles to keep telling people about your mission, not that loudly tho.

    #5. Start Expanding the Business

    You’ve tried a lot, but it’s not the time to relax. It’s time to start thinking of expansion. I mean expansion at all lengths.

    If you launch your business to focus on people in Canada and they accept it with open hands, it’s time to expand to New York, and then to Paris, to Africa, etc.

    In your team as well, you need to have some people who will be in charge of marketing, human resources, engineering, international relation, legal, and many departments within your company.

    With great power comes greater responsibility, the more you’re growing, the more you should expand.

    MTN’s IPO: How to Buy MTN Shares with less than N50,000

    Published

    on

    Here is your time to shine, you can now buy MTN shares and join the leagues of MTN shareholders in Nigeria.

    Nigeria’s telecommunication giant, MTN Nigeria recently announced the selling of 575 million of its shares to the public on Tuesday, November 30th, 2021. Just in case you don’t know what “shares” is, let’s me quickly tell how it works;

    What are Shares?

    Share simply means a percentage of ownership in a company. Those who hold these shares are called “shareholders” and you can also call them “investors”.

    What that simply means is that, let’s say you buy MTN shares, you have a percentage of every percentage of the company. If the stock rises, your share rises and vise versa.

    How Shares Work?

    The more shares of a company you’re holding, the more decision-making power you have in that company and the more your profit if the company is performing well.

    Let’s say you buy 250 units of MTN shares at the rate of N169 each, which is N42,250.

    And luckily, MTN stocks jump to x10, that’s also N42,250 x 10 for you. You’ve made N422,500!

    That’s just the simple idea, if you know how FOREX, stocks, or cryptocurrency work, you have the idea of how Shares work also.

    But you don’t need to panic because MTN Nigeria is leading and doing well in Nigeria, investing your money to buy from their shares will be a good return on investment (ROI) for you.

    …and this is a golden opportunity if you’ve been looking for where to invest your money.
