We will be exploring some of the “Fast-Moving & Selling Items To Sell In Ghana (Africa) 2021-2022”. In this short guide, most of our points are categorized under the E-commerce aspect but few are not. This is because the internet is taking control as time goes on in our world today.
New and old entrepreneurs ask questions like this most often. They are right to do so because the market isn’t static but dynamic so they have to be able to cope with the constant changes as time goes on.
We found it important to make some researches on this topic and we came out with some necessary info you will need as an entrepreneur or individual willing or planning to start a business in Ghana 2021-2022.
There are different trends yearly “Put this in mind”. Although some of these trends don’t change totally some change and as time goes on some even fade away.
1. FASHION GOODS OR ITEMS:
Here when we talk about fashion what I mean is T-shirts, Trousers, Women Clothing, Sneakers, Women Heels and bags for both males and females this stuff sells pretty much every year. This is because as we are human beings and we can’t do away with shelter.
The number of Boutiques and fashion shops increases yearly as time goes on. This stuff sells much both offline and online. Especially for the ladies stuff and for the males’ Sneakers, Pullovers, T-shirts etc.
To make lots of sales selling this type of items online here in Africa, you can post this stuff on your personal Whatsapp status, share it with friends and families and post on social media groups and pages.
Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram are one of the best platforms to advertise fashion items.
2. BITCOINS & OTHER DIGITAL CURRENCIES:
When we “Digital Currencies” we mean Bitcoins, Etheruem, Dogecoin, Bitcash etc. These are online currencies that have lots of value than almost all our physical currencies. Bitcoin is worth more than popular currencies like the United States Dollars, Euros, British Pounds and many other popular currencies.
We decided to it to our list because in our intro we mentioned e-commerce. Digital currencies are one of the fast-selling, demanding and profitable stuff or business in the world now not only in Ghana.
With this, you can start buying and selling digital currencies online. The price of bitcoin increases day by day every year and 1bitcoin is worth more than $67,000 now in 2021. And this business is not going to drop down anytime now because the company owned by the richest man in the world just announced they have invested billions of dollars in digital currencies just for future profits.
So you starting this business is nothing bad but a good and profitable idea. You can join the most used platforms P2P platforms in Ghana thus;
Our advice is, you can trade with a low amount of money you have, like 500cedis and above or even lower.
You will be buying and selling cryptocurrencies anytime there is a rise in the price of these cryptos, that is when you’re going to make you earn more money than the money you first bought with. And this is a method most of us are using to crush digital currency trading as time goes on.
#Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies market and prices are Volatile. This is not a piece of professional financial advice remember that we won’t be responsible for any financial loss.
3. BEAUTY PRODUCTS :
We are starting with beauty products because there is a perception out there that, there are a lot’s women than in the country. Beauty products like cosmetics that both genders use in other to make them look more attractive. Examples of these products is pomade or lotions, hair food or creams, make-ups, wigs caps, face cleansers etc. To choose beauty products these are some of the stuff that is also in high demand every blessed year on Google trends.
I will be talking about the e-commerce aspect because everything is on the internet now. Even if you have a shop you need to extend your business online only if you want to reach out to lots of people out there.
To make money in the niche or I will say products, all you need to do is to do keyword research and target the right keywords people are using online to find these products and also put them in your sales letters, advertisements and emails. (Tip for those willing to sell or market online)
Here you need not be intelligentsia what you need is smartness. You can find a keyword research tool or use free ones like Google trends which is a bit complicated… Change the location to the precise locality or area you want to capture and then search for keywords people search monthly and weekly.
After gathering this info you can now come out with Ads, Articles and pots that are going to target these people and get them to buy your stuff. This is simple but you will find it difficult when you are not all that good in e-commerce but, you can get someone to do all this and pay them some little bucks (Advertising companies).
4. PHONES AND ACCESSORIES:
Smartphones and its accessories are also one of the most search items in Ghana on Google trends. An example is iPhones, Infinix and Air pods. I myself for example started using a mobile phone when I was in Grade 3 thus when I was seven (7) years.
And even saved money to buy a mobile phone for me when I was 14 years. Not to forget I spent lots of money trying to repair it anytime it got spoilt or even downloading games from friends and repairers.
This is how this generation is, we cannot do away with some petty stuff. A mobile phone is an example of these things. So the idea of selling a mobile phone is not a bad one.
Because day-in-day-out new phones are been released and people out there are stressing their selves to get one anytime a new one is been released.
With stuff like this, marketing won’t be all that difficult like other electrical gadgets. With Mobile phones, you can just share it on social media platforms like WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc.
For you to make perfect sales and increase your ROI drastically, you can choose to run Ads and watch your sales boom.
In other ways, you create a technology blog build it and let it look good and then drive traffic to the blog. As time goes on, you keep your reader’s and visitors updated with mobile phone accessories and mobile phone news. You will start making sales once you gain online relevancy.
But then, the real truth is with this idea is, you will have to invest your time and it will as take enough time for something like that to pick up. But once your blog or online store get noticed, trust me everything will be easy like never before.
5. LAPTOPS & ACCESSORIES:
Laptops and their accessories are also one of the fast-selling items in Ghana 2021. For a country like Ghana, since senior high school is free the number of students that will be going to university is going to increase than ever and this going to cause the rise of demand for laptops. (Critical thinking lol…..)
Not only universities students but almost 40% of African homes have at least a laptop or computer. This tells you, the demand for laptops is high every year. And for its accessories, once the demand for laptops is high the demand for its accessories like keyboards, hard disk, optical wireless mouse, chargers etc will also be high automatically.
And with items like laptops, In other to make more sales online, you can share pictures of it on your Whatsapp status or even Facebook page and groups.
But in all, in other to make more sales is by running an Ad. Either on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat etc or on search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, Ecosia and many more.
Another pro tip is, you can sign up to legit online stores where there are few or no scams going on there like Jumia. For Africa I am going to recommend Jumia, Using Amazon there will be shipping costs and other expenses and if not taken care you are going to run out of money and lose in the end.
Sign up for a Jumia account as a seller and start selling your items at reasonable and affordable prices.
6. ELECTRIC GADGETS:
Electric Gadgets are also part of the fast-selling items in Ghana and not only in Ghana but worldwide. I myself used to run Ads for a client from the USA I met online who owned an electrical company. And the feedback from every Ad I set up for him was overwhelming. There is no doubt about this.
Because in this century we find ourselves to be inside, everything is simplified in the way to make things run smooth and comfortable. I will say almost 80% of houses here in Africa have electricity. With this, all you have to do is to target the right keywords that will make you sell and then present it to the right people in need of these items.
This does not mean running an Ad without making keyword research and targeting the right audience will not make you lots of sales. What you have to do is to check trends and identify what the problem of the people is. After doing this, you then come out with the right solution you are going to make money out of that.
This is because stuff like electric gadgets can not be advertised on Whatsapp statuses the best is maybe through Facebook groups or pages but you may be marked as a spammer if not done in the right way.
The best is to run Ads either on social media platforms or on search engines like Google, Bing, Brave etc.
The real truth is that lot’s of people won’t tell you what to do actually but just give you guides on how to do it. For me, my advice is, while you have found the item or product you want to sell get yourself tools and makes researches on how that item or gadget is working for other people either in their Ads or something else.
Mastering this you have to get yourself products and target petty keywords and then put in a little amount of money this will raise your ROI as time goes on. Check Bronzeintellectuals if you want to learn SEO on YouTube, Google etc.
7. BABY CLOTHES AND PRODUCTS:
Baby clothes and other products are items that are in high demand every year. This is because every blessed day a new baby is been born. And for items like baby clothes and products both men and females buy all the time. This is because there is no shame in buying this stuff and everybody wants his or her baby to look adorable.
These items sell on social media very very fast when targeted to the right customers. You can not post or advertise baby clothes and products in a group full of teenagers, senior high school groups or even university students and expect to make more sales. That will never happen!
You always have to target the age and the platform you are willing to advertise there. Platforms like Twitter are not going to make more sales this is because in Africa youths use Twitter the most. Twitter is for items like laptops, mobile phones and fashion stuff.
Running Ads is also the best way to make more sales, but as I said target the age and even the gender aspect too. This is because not all men buy baby clothes or products but for females, almost 80% of them do that every day.
A pro tip is, Pinterest is also one of the best social media platforms to advertise products like this. And other social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram.
You can also try selling on online shopping stores like Jumia and other platforms there is less scam rate on there.
8. HEALTH PRODUCTS :
Like every new year, we invent a new disease as humans especially here in Africa. Selling health stuff like weight loss products, diabetes drugs and others it’s easier to make sales. The problem with selling these items online is how you are going to present yourself.
But if you are going to so sell online that’s simple. But for face to face sales will be a bit complicated.
For online you can create and design a website or store and start selling stuff like this on there. With the blog idea, the products can be yours or they can be items of different merchants or vendors, thus doing affiliate marketing.
You can also share these products on social media groups and pages. Platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and others.
To boost your sales you can also run an Ad to boost your sales and clicks drastically without doing any hard work.
9. HOME AND OFFICE FURNITURES:
Home and office furniture like chairs, tables, wardrobes, shelves etc also have high searches yearly from our various researches we made. This means the demand for stuff like this is very very high online high in Ghana and Africa.
But personally, I don’t know how this is going to work in Africa unless you are a carpenter or have a company manufacturing these items. And since I started internet marketing I have never heard or seen a Furniture company based in Africa looking or seeking for affiliates so face to face sale is the only way here in Ghana.
This will be a bit difficult but when you plan on how you are going to get these items and how you are going to get them delivered to customers anytime they make a purchase I think it will work for you but not easy.
10. PROVISIONS (Not- Ecommerce):
We added this because it most popular business here in Ghana and also one of the profitable businesses in Ghana here you can also tap into. When normally say “Provisions Store” in Ghana, I think almost every Ghanaian knows what it is. Some people will say supermarket or anyhow you call it.
Since this is a popular business in Ghana, you can start with any low amount of money and start building yourself as time goes on. There are successful businessmen and women here in Ghana and even outside of Ghana that also encourages people with how they start businesses with small investments.
Just like the Provision store you start with any low amount of money you have and build yourself with the little income you make from your sales. The only thing about this is, the profit margin of every product you sell is low and will take you enough time for you to start making lots of money as your ROI.
Starting a business like this, you have to consider lot’s of things before you jump into it else you are going to waste your precious time and money. Some of the factors you have to consider are your location, profit planning and spending, investment etc.
11. GAMING PRODUCTS:
As humans one of the things we can not do away with is entertainment and selling gaming products in Ghana is not a bad idea. With this, you can even target customers in and outside the country if only you have some special business knowledge.
This is because gaming products is one of the demanding niches online and offline worldwide and I will say Ghana in particular, due to the monthly search queries online on Google and Bing.
But the only cons about this business is, we think you need to have some basic idea or love gaming naturally in other to convince and relate to your customers. And also you need enough money to start businesses like this. Below are some of the hyped gaming products;
⦁ Play Station 5
⦁ Gaming Software
⦁ Gaming Pads, Joysticks etc
To conclude, the above are some of the most fast-selling and moving items here in Ghana (Africa) in 2021. This short article contains everything you need to know plus some additional strategies you adopt to make it happen here in Ghana.
