6 Ways To Make Money On Valentine’s Day
I am sure by now you have seen guys who sell roses on the streets of Nairobi or elsewhere in Kenya.
Unknown to many, this is a very lucrative business that doesn’t even need much capital to start.
With just 5,000, you can comfortably buy your stock and resell it and you will be surprised at how much profit you will make especially on the 14th.
A banquet of red roses goes for 600 shillings at the city market and you can resell it anywhere else at 1000 shillings and above.
At the end of the day, you can be sure to make a profit of not less than 500 shillings.
And the good news is that on Valentine’s Day, the demand for such goodies goes up meaning that you can make even more profit.
You can set up makeshift tents in any busy town and sell your flowers there.
Also, spice up things and make more money by adding chocolates and wines to the mix and selling them online.
No all of us are good at romance and some just need a kick in the head to get it right.
This is where you come in as an entrepreneur.
And in a generation where some of us expect to be treated like loyalty, why not take the stress off men who have to go to great lengths to make this happen for their better halves.
You can organize romantic dates at a fee.
And to begin with, start with that colleague or friend that you know that has no idea what they are supposed to do.
Offer to organize for them a date and charge them.
Who knows, you might end up liking this line of business and can even turn it into a long term business.
Throw a single’s party
Besides the couples who are all lovey-dovey on Valentine’s Day, there are the single ones who don’t understand or pretend not to understand what the fuss is all about this day (we all know them).
These are the ones who will be updating nasty things about valentine’s day on social media, saying how this day is overrated and things like showing love don’t have to be only once a year while in real sense they secretly wish they had somebody to be spending this day with.
They will also be side-eyeing anybody who dares to be romantic around them.
However, among them are those who are genuine and want to celebrate this day just like everybody else but have no one in their life.
You can throw a single’s party for their sake to give them a chance to finding love or to just simply catch up on their friends.
You can partner with a restaurant or just find a house and make the theme as interesting as possible.
You can then charge a fixed amount to cover the food and drinks or have them pay an entry fee and buy their own food.
Whatever the case, this is a business that will give you some of the highest returns.
Offer to babysit at a fee
Right now somewhere, there are couples who are stressed about what they are going to do about their kids since Valentine’s Day is the one time they get to spend quality time together.
Baby-sitting is not only fun, but you don’t even have to invest a cent in it.
Approach couples who you know have kids and offer to babysit for them and charge them on an hourly basis.
Chances are that they will be relieved to have someone they know and trust take care of their kids while they unwind.
You may even end up turning it into your side hustle where you give parents that much-needed break once in a while away from their kids.
Photography and video shoots
You know the likes of Ben Kiruthi? These are guys who are making millions in cash from businesses such as photography.
If you have the skills and camera; you can use them to make money during Valentine’s Day.
The truth is those who have already found love often look for ways to immortalize that experience. And what better way to capture those moments for the future.
It’s finally time to turn your passion into a business, don’t you think so?
Start a relationship blog
Relationship is one of the blog niches that get lots of traffic.
If you have superb writing skills, why not turn that into money?
Take advantage of this day and start a relationship blog.
Write interesting articles that will drive traffic to your website.
Within time you can monetize it and even become an affiliate marketer if you end up getting good traffic.
Blogging is one of the ways you can use to make free money without going through all the stress of starting and registering a business.
Valentine’s day is just around the corner and as such, at least do something worthwhile that day. Don’t just sit at home and mop about how you are all alone. If you have no one, take advantage of the day and either find someone or make money. Either way, it will be a worthwhile course.
