Coming back to the topic, first of all I have to share a little details about a machine that you will need to buy so that you can manufacture the products that you will be selling later on.

The Machine!

This machine is called manual blister packing machine, it is used for packing, this machine comes in many different shapes and sizes but for students, I would suggest either one of  the following two (watch the video), which will cost somewhere between 25-40 thousand Pkr.

Check this video too

You can find local dealers of these machines by either connecting with someone in the industry like in sweets industry (candies etc) or in pharma/medicine industry, they will give you contact, price etc of the nearby dealers from whom you can purchase it easily.

For getting contacts from industry you will have to make visit to a nearby industrial zone around you or you will need to connect with them through email, contact via colleague, friend or through social media, google etc.

Update 18/Feb/2022: Here are couple of dealers in Pakistan from whom you can easily purchase this machine, although design wise machine is not similar to the one above in the video but function wise they are similar, check out these links: link1, link2 to contact dealers of this machine in Pakistan and purchase it from them.

Once you have this machine, you can pack many things with it right from your hostel (😋😈😉), home etc!

So now let’s get back to business ideas!

6 Easy, Cool Business Ideas for Students in PK

Bunties Business Idea

You can buy these little sweet things at any wholesale sweet dealer like KK Foods Karachi, Pak Foods Rawalpindi etc.
bunties business idea

Once you buy them, it usually cost around 90-95 Pkr per kg, with one kg bunties you can make around 40-45 packs costing you 2.85-3.00 pkr per pack (including packing cost, foil cost, electricity cost, labor cost etc) and you can sell that pack as a dozen pack bundle for 45 pkr, thus earning you at least 9 pkr in profit for each dozen sold.

The retailer will sell those packs at 5 Pkr to consumer, thus earning him 15pkr in profit by selling dozen, remember in any new small business you will need to give at least 30-35% profit to the retailer, as that will convince him to buy your product.

That 15 Pkr that the retailer earns on 45 rupees is exactly 35% !

Cherry Balls Business Idea

This is yet another similar sweet little thing like bunties, per pack this one will cost somewhat lesser than bunties, so you will earn even more in profit, around 11-13 pkr per a dozen bundle here.

Imagine selling hundred dozen bundle packs daily, that is 1100-1300 in profit daily, if you look at it monthwise, taking out the Sundays, when you don’t work, you still make handsome cash between 25k-30K pkr, that is quite handsome money, isn’t it! 😉

Dry Milk Business Idea

Kids go crazy for dry milk, they love it, you probably have eaten a lot in your childhood, so why not start dry milk business!
dry milk business
You can again find a wholesale dealer of dry milk around you (if you are from Rawalpindi then Raja Bazar is where you need to go) and then you can pack it up in small boxes with the above machine, each box will cost you around the same amount as one pack of bunties does, then selling a dozen bundle of that to retailers etc and earning handsomely!

This (business idea) one is probably the one I would have launched as a student!

Colorful Marbles Business Idea

Kids love marbles, simply because they are cool, cute little sparkies! 😵

And the best thing about marbles is, they don’t get expired, don’t cost much which means you can make some really good money with that!

Small Scissors Business Idea

Almost all adults, grownups need quality scissors for trimming beard, mustaches, hair, eye brow etc and we often lose them, forgetting where we put it and so we buy another one, and ANOTHER ONE... and that’s how it has been going on for centuries! 
scissors business idea
Buying quality small scissors in bulk and then packing them in quality packs, means awesome money!

Although in Pakistan people don’t usually prefer quality therefore lower cheap quality scissors will do the job!

Some important points to remember!

  1. You will need to design the aluminum for background packing, as per your specification, the machine seller can help you in that.
  2. You will need plastic for front packing, again the machine seller can help you there, explaining everything about it.
  3. You will need to buy plastic, aluminum in bulk to lower the cost, that means you will need some more money, like 5-15K Pkr.
  4. You will need to make separate dyes for each product you are packing, you may right now don’t understand what a dye is, its something you need to put in the machine to pack a given item, a single dye can only pack a single item, for instance bunties dye won’t pack dry milk and vice versa, therefore you will need five dyes if you want to do packing of the above all five items, a machine comes with at least two free dyes.
  5. You have to make sure that you can really do it, don’t just jump in it and then learning the swimming rather think over it for at least a week, do necessary survey etc too, it is really important or else you will end up wasting your money!
  6. Don’t start by investing large, doing large investment without having clue about business means you will most likely end up losing all of your investment.

    Sir what are your thoughts about freelancing in Graphic Design though its not a business but still a good thing for students start up in Professional life

    1. Dear Graphic designing is good but I guess in the future due to AI this skill will become obsolete, people will use websites etc to get their desired designs with just a click (with very cheap rates) and so it will become almost worthless for graphic designers to cash their skill, it may happen in next 5-10 years.
