successful business in pakistan
Well, when it comes to successful business in Pakistan it all boils down to return on investment (ROI) for a given business plus market demand of what it provides as a business, what need, want it fulfills or solution it provides to a given situation.

If a business has great ROI along with great market demand then that business can be called a successful business.

Although great ROI and market demand alone doesn’t make a business successful rather you need to be really smart in daily affairs of your business, by that I mean you need to know how to do marketing, how to set sales commissions, sales targets for your sales team, how to do hiring, firing, training, how to look after financial side of your business etc.

In a nutshell you need to be really hot in marketing, finance, human resource aspects of your business and not only that you really need to be efficiently & effectively creative in connecting all these aspects in a balanced way so to realize great ROI.

7 Most Successful Businesses in Pakistan

1.      Medicine Business

Because there are all types of food adulteration's (milawaat) going in Pakistan, chai me milawat, dhoodh me milawaat plus there are over 180 million people in Pakistan and almost every third or fourth guy has some kind of disease, illness, which means medicine has tremendous demand and ROI on medicine is around 15%-50% in retail, while in wholesale, distribution it varies between 3%-7%.

Thus medicine business can be termed as the most successful, profitable business sector in Pakistan.

2.      Cloth Business

Again 180 million people need clothing, roti kapra maakaan, you must have heard this political slogan… they really nailed it (kal bhi Bhutto zinda tha, ajj bhi mr 10% zinda hey ;d), plus retail cloth business has super ROI just like medicine although that doesn’t mean wholesale, distribution, manufacturing doesn’t offer anything.

ROI for retail, wholesale, distribution, manufacturing cloth business, varies between 5% -60%.

3.      Food Business

Yep, you heard it right, again 180 million people, they need to eat something daily because their survival depends on it and that’s why we have these awesome food streets from namak mandi of Peshawar to monal in Islamabad to food streets in Lahore and Karachi.
Pakistani waisay bhe khao peo geo type lug hain… ;)

ROI varies between 30%-70% for both small outlets like chai walas, burger walas plus larger ones like typical restaurants, savour foods etc.

At small outlets taste sells, at medium outlets quality food plus taste sells and at bigger outlets its all about bling bling, decoration of the outlet plus super cool customer service including quality plus taste.

4.      Property Business

Again 180 million will need a place to settle in, urban growth is another indicator that property sector is doing great in Pakistan, all these immense, huge housing schemes, townships, Bahria towns blah blah towns etc are all good indicators of that.

ROI varies between 25%-70% although remember that you have to wait for the right time to get huge ROI and also you need to consider money devaluation, inflation, economic growth of the region, taking political & security situation etc into the equation.

5.      Retail, Wholesale, Distribution Mix

From selling shampoos, bath soaps to cooking oils, vegetables, cigarettes in your outlet at bulk, retail price etc can also provide a good opportunity to have a stable and continuous source of income without much risk.

Again, take the basic needs of 180 million people into perspective, although you will not get all the 180 million coming to your outlet only but you can, well, gauge the demand of the items, services you should be offering at your retail store, general store etc.

Success in this business is almost entirely dependent on customer flow to the outlet, so make sure you launch such a business at some really hot place, the more customer flow, the more opportunities to sale consequently the more profit.

ROI varies between 10%-50%.

6.      Automobiles Business

People in Pakistan have been earning quite good in recent times, purchasing power has increased quite rapidly and so do the affordability of various “luxurious” items.

Once there was time when few or just couple of people used to have a car in the whole village or town (talking about 60’s,70’s,80’s) now you see 100’s in each small town or village.

ROI here varies between 10%-35%.

7.      Smart Phones Business

Although constant technological disruption or change makes it a lot hard for majority of people to get some real money out of this business sector but once you get your hand in the right spot you can really make some serious money in this sector.

Demand for smartphones is huge, ROI is quite healthy and sales are immense all you need is a right location, right investment, right time, right approach, right management to reap some serious ROI.

ROI here varies between 5%-30%.

Beside average life span of a smart phone is 4.7 years and there are around 4 caror smart phone users in Pakistan, using 3G/4G. So you can imagine the demand!
