Here we have talked about some Ramadan business ideas that you can use in the upcoming month of Ramadan which is April 2022.
Usually, during Ramadan, various seasonal business opportunities can generate significant profits. The problem is, at this time there may be many people who are inhibited from starting a business because of small capital considerations.
Well, it turns out that there are types of businesses during Ramadan that you can do with a small capital and some of them can be done while staying at home. What are these businesses? Let us discuss them one by one.
9 Profitable Ramadan Business Ideas
Here are the profitable Ramadan business ideas for you guys:
1. Hygienic Catering & Iftar
As you all know on Iftar time Muslims prepare want delicious food but some people don’t have enough time to cook for themselves may be because of their busy life. People still have to work, study and do other activities even at home.
Therefore, there must be people who do not have time to cook the meal or break the fast. So, they order food from restaurants. The real problem is that they didn’t get healthy food and this is where you play your part and provide the best food they want.
If you provide healthy food specially designed for iftar time then in this holy you can earn a large number of profits.
If you want to work from home, then this business is flexible both ways. But the dilemma is, at this time you cannot just buy food outside randomly from any restaurant. So that many people choose hygienic and healthy food to order.
Well, this can be a business opportunity for you. You can market hygienic and healthy food through ingredients, processing, and packaging.
It’s just that one of the challenges of doing a catering business is that you have to be smart in managing different menus for “Sehri” and “Iftar” time. This is so that customers don’t get bored and keep buying your catering.
Even with a small initial capital, you can still sell food on Sehri and iftar time by offering it through the WhatsApp group or being a partner with some delivery company.
This way you don’t have to leave the house to offer it or rent a stall in the form of a shop or the like. You can do it from your home also with ease.
2. Selling Various Sweets and Shakes
As with the catering business for Ramadan, selling various sweets in this month of Ramadan is an effort that is likely to remain busy. Because people love to eat sweets on iftar time.
Besides that, it does not require large capital. Banana compote, fruit ice, mixed ice, and many kinds of shakes can be sold. You can match the type of shakes you want to sell with existing capital.
In the past, customers used to line up and crowd to buy these kinds of products (shakes), because they are healthy and have reasonable prices.
If you don’t want to be a partner delivery company, you can provide separate seating for customers.
You also offer these products in the WhatsApp group of neighbors or friends in the area with a minimum purchase requirement.
3. Selling Contemporary Spice Drinks
Apart from hygienic and healthy food, spice drinks are also in great demand during Ramadan. Almost everyone now wants their immunity to be maintained.
Include only those drinks in this business category that are “Halal” as well as healthy.
4. Selling Dates
Dates are a fruit that is very synonymous with Ramadan in the world. Because it is the sunnah of the Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W) which is believed to have health benefits, especially when fasting. You can sell dates by buying them from large date traders. Usually, the price will be cheaper.
You don’t need too much, just adjust it to the capital you have. You can increase the stock of dates as your dates are selling well. Regarding how to sell it, you can sell it offline or online.
You can sell dates offline from home because selling dates offline is unlikely to be as busy as selling shakes and other drinks because dates can be bought directly for stock.
But on the other hand, because the customers are not too busy offline, offering dates via social media can be an alternative.
As for the delivery, you can use goods delivery services or logistic packages.
5. Online Pastry Business
For those of you who can make cookies and pastries, then this is your chance to start a business. You can receive orders for pastries on demand and send them according to customer requests since the beginning of Ramadan.
The payment is also made with a minimum DP of 50% and paid off before the order is complete.
You can offer orders for cakes via social media to relatives and close friends in advance by sending samples and pictures of the cakes.
Of course, for this, you need to spend capital. But it can still be adjusted according to the budget. Make the photo look attractive because this will be a catalog of cakes that you will sell.
If the order is still possible to add according to your capacity then you can ask for help to distribute cake photos and testimonials from relatives and friends who have sent samples to their colleagues. Don’t forget to make a schedule for making cakes if the order has arrived to anticipate an overload of orders.
6. Dropship Clothes & Worship Equipment
In addition to food or drinks, other small capital businesses that are usually in demand in the month of Ramadan include dropshipping of Eid clothes and religious equipment.
Usually, people want to buy new worship equipment to be more devoted to worship. In addition, Eid clothes are often the target of the community.
In addition to the capital that must be spent selling offline, it will be quite large, but with your dropshipping system, you don’t need to spend a lot of capital. What matters is a smartphone with quality and a marketplace or dropship application installed on your smartphone.
Because the dropshipping system doesn’t need to stock items yourself, you only need to market them. Now you can join one of the dropshipping platforms or do it on your system.
Items that are usually in great demand during Ramadan are Eid clothes and worship equipment. So look for these items, save the pictures and market them on your various social media.
7. Selling Cloth Masks
Masks are a priority need even after the pandemic because people want to avoid any risks. After being socialized by the government regarding the recommendation to use cloth masks for the general public, cloth masks are now in great demand.
Ramadan in 2022 is somewhat different even after corona, so the business of selling masks will also remain busy during the month of Ramadan.
This can be a business opportunity for you because making cloth masks can be done at home and the ingredients are easy to find. Tutorials on making cloth masks recommended by health agencies can be seen on YouTube.
But it is advisable to sell masks at a reasonable price so that everyone can access masks and maintain economic stability.
Please note that maybe this business can’t perform well in 2022 because of the vaccinations, and after corona.
8. Selling Liquid Soap/Han sanitizer
Apart from masks, items that will still be busy looking for this year’s Ramadan are liquid soap and hand sanitizers. We can make liquid soap and hand sanitizer according to health standards ourselves at home. Therefore this can also be a business opportunity for you but the potential of this business has reduced after a corona.
The ingredients can also be found at chemical stores. Meanwhile, the composition, measurement, and how to make it can be seen on YouTube. You can buy several small spray bottles for packaging with labels and composition to make the product more convincing.
We recommend that you offer soap or hand sanitizer products to the people closest to you first. After that, you ask for their testimonials and start marketing it to a more discerning audience.
To attract a large number of customers, people usually like it when the soap or hand sanitizer smells good. You can also add a relaxing, safe fragrance to your liquid soap/sanitizer.
9. Selling Unique Parcels
Even after a pandemic situation, we can still send parcels to our business partners, close friends, or beloved family. If you have a grocery store, you can make a typical Ramadan product, a parcel. Fill the parcel with various items that are sold at your grocery store.
Because even after a pandemic period, you can make hygienic parcel branding by adding a few hand sanitizer products to the parcel. In addition, provide a cute and unique greeting card service.
You can also replace parcels, which are usually food, drinks, or Eid cakes with a set of items and tools needed during a pandemic. For example, parcels containing hand sanitizers, liquid soap, hand washing soap, plain and motif masks, wet tissue, and of course Eid greeting cards. Unique isn’t it?
