Since I started this blog, I’ve received countless messages through Whatsapp, Facebook, and my blog — from people who want to learn how to make money online in Nigeria, but have no idea which options they have.
Some want to start blogging, but they don’t know what niche or topic to choose. Some favor information marketing, affiliate marketing, or freelancing, but are lost as to where to get started. Each time I receive such messages, I try to reply as soon as possible because I don’t want to turn people back into the waiting hands of the desperate snake oil marketers out there who have nothing offer, but are experts at milking unsuspecting newbies of their hard-earned cash.
Recently, I came upon the idea of publishing this mega post, which reveals some proven lucrative online business ideas that Nigerians can explore. My aim is to make this the go-to guide for any Nigerian looking to make the right choice as to which online business opportunity to tap into.
So, if your goal is to kick-start a profitable online business, this mega post will open your eyes to so many opportunities you never knew are existing.
Even if you’re already chasing shadows and wasting your precious time on entertainment/celebrity gist blogging and other online time-wasters, it’s never too late to retrace your steps. But before I unleash these opportunities, I want to prepare your mind for online business.
So, I’d recommend you first read the following posts, so they’ll give you a clear picture of what online business entails, and what you should expect.
Idea #1: Small business blog
With the worsening state of Nigeria’s economy comes saddening developments such as mass retrenchment of workers, dearth of jobs in the labor market, and lack of job security.
This explains why millions of Nigerians are on the lookout for lucrative small business opportunities to explore — in a bid to achieve financial independence. However, most people who want to start a business have one problem: they are confused as to which business to start. And this is because they have little or no knowledge of the various small business opportunities available in the country.
If you have a knack for research, you can quickly gather a loyal Nigerian audience by starting a small business blog that features quality and valuable information about each of the various small business ideas and opportunities available in Nigeria.
