How To Start A Nail Business In Nigeria
To start up a nail business the following should be considered:
Amount of money available to start up the business with (capital):
the amount of money available for start-up should be considered, this will enable you to know the type, quality, quantity, and texture of nails you will go for. You can start up the business with as little money as 10k.
I started up my nail business with 10k and I was able the run the business successfully. I was able to achieve that because I considered the money available for start-up and used it judiciously.
I bought little equipment I needed such as nail fillers, nail shove, nail polish (few but attractive colors), nail remover, already made nails( as many as I can get considering the money available and the ones are affordable). These items were not too expensive and I can successfully run my nail business with them.
I worked from home, I place an advert online, get customers, and go to houses to render my services. I did manicure, pedicure, and other services that can be rendered in a nail salon. The best part was that I kept getting referrals from my customers because I was good at what I do and after some years I had lots of customers.
To tell you the truth I was well paid because it is home service. I made a lot of money, more than some persons who own shops, that was how I gathered money to rent a place, buy the complete sets of everything I needed(equipment), and had a proper nail salon.
Consider the location at which you want to start up the business:
The location at which you start up a business determines how productive the business will be and the income it would be able to yield. For instance, a nail salon sited in a rural area cannot yield as much income as one sited in an urban area, which is developed. So you have to look out for locations that are developed to start up the nail business in order to get a positive result.
