YouTube has developed into a platform to earn a handsome around. All you need is a unique idea or skills to share with the world, a proper set-up and video making and editing skills. You may require a proper set of teams to evolve your YouTubing to a proper business set-up and earn.

29. Poultry Farming:

Food businesses, irrespective of type and scale, always work in Pakistan. Food businesses prove to be the best investment opportunities in Pakistan. It can be a backyard poultry farm to deal in eggs and chicken or can be a fully established hen poultry farm. The demand for poultry is always high in the Pakistani market.

30. Fish Farming:

Fish farming can also prove to be a highly profitable business in Pakistan. Popular, seasonal fish breeds like Rahu, trout, tuna, Baam, are not only high-in-demand but also are sold at very high prices and thus help generate huge profits. Moreover, finger-fish, shrimps, prawns and other such fish varieties are in-demand for the whole year.

31. Pet Export

Not a very favourable business idea right now due to the coronavirus prevailing but otherwise pet export is a very vast and profitable business to go with. It can be started at a very small-scale and then expanded gradually. Pet export can be of birds, parrots, dogs, cats etc. As the trend of pets in Pakistan is at a very initial stage so take it easy, go with the flow.

For example if you buy a pair of german shepherds (puppies) it will cost you about 15,000-25,000 each. It will then take 5-6 months for them to fully grow and be able to reproduce after which you will get 7-8 puppies from breeding once. I will leave the maths to you now 😉

32. Gaming Arena

How often have I mentioned the increasing gaming trend in Pakistan in my blogs?- VERY OFTEN! Gaming arenas are something Pakistan literally lacks and is in dire need of. The video game from our childhood got replaced by computer games but the video game centres seized to exist at all. A classy, online gaming arena can prove to be a very profitable business idea for 2020 in Pakistan and may add a token to the entertainment slot which Pakistan lacks a lot.

33. Customer Care Services

When I talk about customer care services I have a very broad perspective in mind. To elaborate it as precisely as possible, foreign embassies, companies, corporates tend to set-up their call centres or customer care centres in other countries due to the low cost they have to offer. Pakistan is one such country. If you ought to establish a foreign-based customer care service centre in Pakistan it will cost you very less but will prove to be very profitable indeed.

34. Instagram/TikTok Influencer

Is there anything in the world left that doesn’t involve social media popularity in it? Well if you have got the looks and style or you have something worth admiring in you. You can become an Instagram or TikTok influencer. By only displaying you skills on these platforms you will be able to receive PR packages from different high-end companies, you may get a chance to model for them or simply get paid to upload a sponsored post by them! isn’t that easy?

35. Event Planners

You do know how everything now demands a celebration in Pakistan. Don’t get me started on criticising this increasing trend but whatever it is as a business mindset you have got to avail all the possible opportunities. So, whether it be bridal showers, baby showers, birthday, haqeeq ceremony, eid-millan party, or any such celebration if you opt to be an event planner company you will be much needed after time to time. It includes all from the decoration to the food and photographer and the entertainments and stuff. As much as you expand this business you will increase your potential profit!
