This is one of the many questions i get from some of my clients. The thing is this...business is fun especially when you do what you love. I wouldn’t say i have an upper hand in the successes i have enjoyed over the years selling Grasscutters. This is because i worked as a Salesman in two private companies back in 2010 and 2012, so i know quite somethings about buyer psychology and the psychology of selling.
Like every other business, Grasscutter is Profitable depending on two things:
- Your Selling ability and
- The decision level of the potential customer.
I advice my clients immediately they start Grasscutter Farming Business to create a C.C.S (Customer Classification System). This system is based on the decision level of the potential customer.
If your Ideal Customer is standing in front of you right now, your ability to know his decision level will go a long way to determine if you will achieve your yearly target goal if you set it at N10,000,000. A colony of Grasscutter (1 male and 4 females) is sold for N67,500. To know how many colonies you will sell in a year (365 days) to meet your yearly target of N10,000,000, simply divide N10,000,000 by N67,500 which will give you 148 colonies.
So if you have 148 colonies of Grasscutters right now, you have a financial value of N10,000,000 sitting at your backyard.
Not only is money made from selling the breeding stocks, you can also make money selling your books like this one that i sell for N5,500
and funny enough i started selling this book at the price of N2,500, the demands for it increased and i increased it to N4,500. The demand increased again and i increased the price to N5,500. So as the demand increases, i increase. And the demand surely will increase again in 2016 because Nigerians will place major emphasis on Agriculture due to the drastic decrease in oil revenue.
Also you can make money selling matured males like this one
I call this guy “udo akpu enyi” (a rope cannot pull an elephant) i sold him for N7,000 so if you have 100 of him, that is another cool N700,000. Other profit angles abound, like setting up a referral system with iron fabricators, carpenters, catfish farmers etc.
