Web developers and designers
As in the previous point there has been a rise in online store, this rise has also given rise to another business venture which is the business of web developers or simply put people who create websites. This business is booming now more than ever because of the increase of online stores and even people creating new apps. This field is making a good amount of money and you don’t have to get a four year degree to become a full time web developer but contrary to that you can get the knowledge you need from watching YouTube videos which have professionals teaching you easy ways around it or better those who are not doing it for fun but want to make the real deal can enroll in short courses that can be run from 3 months to 6 months or even a year or two depending on the institution you go or how deep and intensive the course you want to do is, nonetheless it’s a very good investment in a time like this where the demand for IT sharp people is very high therefore any amount you will charge, people might just be will to pay since there aren’t many IT professionals who are good at what they do.
Selling of Tech Gadgets
Selling of tech gadgets is also now a trending business in Ghana, the most popular gadgets sold are phones and the most popular brand is the apple brand which produces phones like the iPhone X, iPhone 7 plus and all other iPhone; what these sellers do is that they buy the phones themselves in bulk and then sell them to prospective customers at a profit, most at times they don’t buy the phones themselves because that’s a very large amount of money so they may collect the brand new phone from their fellow sellers and then add their own profit to it and sell it. They do not only sell phone, some deal in iPads, MacBooks and other kind of laptops and even the apple watches. Apple is the most popular brand which the sell and maybe some may add only the latest phones from some producers like Samsung, LG etc. so you may find them selling only phones like Samsung s6 and above. Most of them save the profits made on their sales and go on to scale the business and if this is done diligently, they can be able to open their own tech shops and sell properly without having to move around too much by this time they’ll have their own stores.
As we said earlier people are now turning their talents into money making machines at a very low cost and a very strong example is what we have here which is the business of catering.
