1. Learn all you need to know about the Business
In order to start the business, you must learn how to actually produce healthy weavon oil. The last thing you would want to do, is to delve into a business without knowing it in-depth.
My Cousin learnt how to produce weavon oil from the internet (YouTube). If you like, you can follow the same pattern.
However, if you feel you cannot learn from the Internet, I suggest you volunteer to work for a company or someone who makes it, learn how to produce it and then move on to start your own company.
Furthermore, if you feel like you just want to buy from local manufacturers, and sell to customers directly, that works fine too.
This is also a reasonable business strategy, endeavor to know and relate with local manufacturers, negotiate a reasonable price with them and book the weavon oils ahead of time.
The raw materials to make a rich weavon oil include:
1. Red Hibiscus leaves
2. Amla (Indian Gooseberry or Phyllanthus Emblica )
3. Bhringaraj (Eclipta Alba)
4. Olive Oil
5. Almond Oil
6. Coconut Oil
7. Neem Leaves
8. Castor Oil
The oil can be stored in clean plastic bottles and used till they are finished. Clouding may occur at the bottom of the bottles, but that will not spoil the quality of the weavon hair-oil.

2. Register your Business
If you plan on operating your business outside your family, friends and relatives, you must register your business with the appropriate agencies.
The CAC is the normal go to for this, go to the closest Corporate Affairs Commission zonal office closes to you, to begin the process of registering your business. This will not only give you name autonomy, but also give your business a sense of professionalism.
3. Choose a Location & Sales Medium
You have to choose a venue, and sales medium for your business. You need to have a physical office where people can come to buy weavon oil directly from you. It does not have to be the size of a football field, it could just be a small shop where you can display your products for sale.
Although, many of your sales might come from social media orders, It is always a good business strategy to establish your company by setting up a physical office.
4. Develop Your Brand
It is not enough to produce good, quality weavon oil, but your ability to create a business brand that will stand out amongst your customers.
If you are really into the fashion business, you will understand that there are a couple of companies whose businesses stand out, from the colors, to the pictures, to the logo and posts.
So decide on a beautiful name that will self-define your product as simply amazing. Then have a professional graphic designer, work on a logo for you, it costs about 2,000 or 3,000 naira max.
This is very important, for your product to stand out and look more professional. This way, when people look at your Instagram, they get a sense that you know what you are doing, and you are a professional.

5. Add Related Items to Your Stock
If you sell weavon oil, it is only normal for you to also sell weavons. Add related Items to your stock, even after producing the weavon oil.
Products like weavon, needle, weavon glue, weavon oil, relaxers and all types of hair cream and anti-dandruff for hair.
This will attract simple people to your business, but when they see the other products you have, they’ll tell their friends or patronize you later.
However, this is not a criteria to begin a weavon oil producing business, but a business strategy to help you sell your products after production. If your Capital budget cannot cater for all this expenses, focus on your main product which is the weavon oil.
6. Test the Market/ Showcase Your Product
Now that you have fully settled into the weavon oil business scene, it is time to test your market. You can do this by simply producing about a dozen of your products, and organizing a small business opening.
This will help you understand, what the general public thinks about your product, and how it can be improved before it hits the major market.
It does not have to be a big event, a small event where you can invite some friends and family members, make arrangements for refreshments and ask them to buy and test your products. It is a strategy that even big companies employ.
7. Market Your Products
You will need to open separate Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts, from your own personal account. Like I said previously, most of your market will be coming from social media.
An average person spends about 10 hours, on their mobile phone every day, so when they come across a professionally advertised product, they are likely to purchase it.
Most big companies have a whole department, staffed with about fifty individuals doing this work for them, however, they did not start with fifty staffs, maybe one or two persons.
You have the sole responsibility of advertising your products by yourself, at least until you can afford to hire professionals.
Make use of Facebook outreach, which is one of best platforms to reach a lot of potential customers around the world.
If managed properly, weavon oil can become a gold mine of reliable income. Make sure you have satisfied customers, write a two paragraphed sentence to help endorse your product.
Make sure to also provide for transportation of your products, to customers who live far away let’s say in other states or provinces.
Good luck with your new business.
