Our alumni have been successful over the years in establishing variety  of businesses as they sought from their areas of interests and the  degree they graduated with; however, we did a sample survey to find  out that post pandemic which business ideas can really kick off well  and turn profitable, generating ROI in shorter duration. Here’s the list  of eight most recommended easy business ideas to start up with in the  tourist-magnet country.

1. A budget-friendly travel experience company

Everyone enjoys going on vacation. And all travelers have one goal:  to spend as little money as possible while enjoying an unforgettable  experience. Furthermore, individuals no longer purchase goods or 

services; instead, they purchase experiences. When all realities are  combined, you have a fantastic company idea: a Budget-friendly  travel experience agency. 

One of our #C3Sians happened to take advantage of her status as  an expat and provides tourism packages to people from all over the  world who want to visit Spain. She knows precisely what their wants  and desires are, as well as what has most impressed her.  

Furthermore, the familiarity about the nation that you will get while  living here will enable you to create the finest experiences. And, given  how diverse the Spanish land is, as well as the culture and history of its  many areas, you will have an endless multitude of opportunities to  choose from.

2. Organic Meals Café/Resto

Nowadays, eating healthy is fashionable. An international craze that  is currently spreading ferociously throughout Spain. As a result, you  may carve out a niche for yourself in the healthy market by opening  a healthy cuisine restaurant or cafeteria. 

Our recommendation is to open it in one of Spain’s major cities, such  as Barcelona or Madrid. A few of our students who graduated with their Master’s degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management,  teamed up to start a vegan restaurant serving Vegan Lebanese cuisine. They are doing great for themselves, and when asked as to  what an ideal profit-making strategy would be, one of them said  Choose a happening location, hire a good chef, then, take stunning  photos of your meals and post them to your website and Instagram,  aim to rank well on platforms like Tripadvisor, and you’re ready to  deliver nutritious food to your customers!”

3. Build a Business as a Translator:

Every year, people from all over the world go to Spain. The tourism  sector has been coping rigorously post pandemic and has begun to  boom. And there’s no refuting that they all prefer to communicate in  their native language. As a result, you will have a lot of chances as a  translator. In that context, you may work as a translator for any tourist  activity, but you also have other choices that are quite intriguing. 

Because working as a freelance translation opens a lot of  opportunities for you. For example, you can translate website content  or other forms of texts featured in adverts.

And eventually you can hire more and more people with the same  skillset and commercialize your work as an organization. 

Students from Gulf countries, South-Asian communities, parts of Africa,  and many more can take this up as a legit career as the scalability  ratio is magnanimous.

4. Work As A Language Instructor

It’s unmistakably evident. What does a foreigner residing in Spain have  to offer the labor market that a Spaniard doesn’t? His or her native  tongue, which will be either extremely rare or extremely difficult to get  by depending on the country of origin. For many foreigners, being a  language instructor is an excellent option. 

Spanish still remains the most popular language for Spaniards to study.  However, many people in the nation are increasingly attempting to  acquire a second language. As a result, if you know German, Chinese,  Japanese, Araba, Hindi, French, Italian, or any other language, you  will have no trouble finding pupils eager to study it. 

All you have to do now is join up for sites like Preply and you’re ready  to go!

5. Digital Marketing Agency

This is one of the most thriving businesses globally, and many of our  graduated students vouch by this business idea as they share the  ground reality that, as unbelievable as it may seem, there are still a  number of businesses who do not have a website. And a large portion  of those who have do not spend the necessary attention to their social  media presence (or do it poorly). As a result, each firm nowadays  need the expertise of a social media marketer, thus, there is a lot of  scope for tapping this untapped zone. 

One of our graduated students currently works for many SMEs and  shared the ease with which he got started. 

“The reality is that you can do it for zero investment if you have a  laptop and an internet connection, and you don’t need much  experience or understanding in the industry. You may simply get an  aesthetic style by using Photoshop or web services like Canva to make  your graphics.
