1. Start Blogging

Today, blogging is one of the simplest ways to earn money online. Unlike many other jobs, blogging is unique in that you don’t need to spend money on an office location; instead, you can blog efficiently from the comfort of your own home.

Blogging is a very attractive and reliable way to earn money online. You can make good money with your blog. This is the most reliable online business today.

  • What is blogging?

Blogging is all about managing an information-based website. A website that creates and post information regularly on a specific niche. It could be entertainment, news, agriculture, business, politics, technology, jobs, sports, any information at all.

So if you build a website today and write about technology, that is a blog. And you can make money from your blog.

It’s rather simple to start a blog in Nigeria. All you have to do now is pick a niche to blog about, set up your site, and start writing. You can also get in touch with us right now to get started on your blog.

You’ll be able to start making money from your blog as it starts to expand and generate a lot of traffic, whether through Google AdSense, sponsored posts, affiliate marketing, direct ads, selling your products/services, and so on.

2. Trading bitcoin

When high inflation rates and inaccessibility to banks make it insensible to deal with naira, it’s the perfect timing to look into cryptocurrencies as an alternative as these digital assets are decentralized, unaffected by economic recessions, and can be traded instantly.

Using peer-to-peer marketplaces such as Paxful, you can obtain bitcoin in various ways including but not limited to gift cards, PayPal or cash deposits, etc. Play around with exchange rates, bitcoin’s prices, and foreign exchange rates and you can make a big profit.

Paxful’s Affiliate Program allows you to earn a 50% commission on the escrow fee every time one of your direct referrals makes a trade. Let your money snowball!

3. Playing trending video games

While other apps pay you for playing small and perhaps repetitive games on your phone, Mistplay actually lets you play cool and famous games for gift cards. Some popular games that they offer include Words With Friends 2, Yahtzee, Clash Royale, Star Wars, etc.

The more games you play, the more you get rewarded. And guess what? Besides Amazon, Starbucks and Google Play gift cards, you can also receive your rewards for Xbox, Nintendo, and PlayStation – time to play even more games!

4. Taking online surveys and watching videos

There are more easy ways than watching videos to make quick money online. On InboxDollars, brands have paid users over $56 million worth of cash rewards to take online surveys, read emails, play video games and watch videos – and offered coupons for grocery stores, or freebies from top brands in exchange.

Besides the money, what you’re doing is meaningful and reciprocal. Your responses on surveys will help big brands better design their products that match your interests, which you – the end-user – will enjoy eventually.

5. Offering feedback on websites and apps

Websites aren’t born perfect. The popular websites we use now have gone through generations of modifications and remodifications – from feedback given by users.

Help out the next tech giants by spending 10-20 minutes to navigate their website and tell them what you think about it. Giving feedback on their questionnaires or tasks can earn you up to $60 per test through sites like UserTesting.

6. Earning cash back rewards

After learning about Rakuten cashback rewards, you probably won’t buy any original-priced products ever again. Not only do you get discounts off popular brands such as Amazon and Macy’s, but also receive a cashback balance – you can choose to have your free money from Rakuten paid through PayPal or by a check. Seriously? You get money back for spending money now? I’m in. Join others in saving hundreds, or thousands, of dollars a year!

7. Video Blogging

With a billion hours of videos watched on YouTube each day, vlogging is never a bad idea to build a business in. If you have a niche in a certain field and are comfortable speaking in front of a camera, try uploading some video content to your YouTube channel. Although building a large following takes time and skills, one that is fluent in video editing and marketing strategies will be able to make bank with YouTube’s ads and sponsorship programs.

Platforms like Radio.co enable you to create an online radio station for free and connect with listeners worldwide. They also have cool analytics that helps you better manage your station and target audience.

20. Selling designs

If you have a creative muscle and want other people to use your graphic designs in their business cards, t-shirts, flyers, banners and coffee mugs, start selling them on the Nigerian website Printivo. When a user is interested in your design templates, they’ll put in orders after editing the texts and elements on your templates.

21. Affiliate marketing

If you have a product or an app that you like, why not share the love with your friends and family, and get paid? Affiliate marketing is essentially ‘WinG manning” a product and a new user in exchange for a cut of the profits.

Commission rates vary but can add up to be a great income. For example, our own platform Paxful has a unique affiliate program where users earn a 50% commission on the escrow fee every time one of their direct referrals makes a trade. That means if one of your referrals trade USD $1,000 worth of bitcoin, you’ll be awarded 50 percent of the 1 percent – $10 – escrow fee. When you have multiple referrals and they all engage in big trading volumes, you can make some really big money!

22. Making music

Anyone can compose their own song and put it up on YouTube for people to discern their taste. Using popular channels such as YouTube and Spotify, your songs can have the potential to reach millions of listeners, making you a big profit in return. For instance, Nigerian singer and songwriter Davido’s single, “Fall,” has had 148 million views on YouTube alone.

Ride this music wave as Sony and Universal open offices in Nigeria. The music industry in Nigeria is set to be valued at an astonishing $73 million by 2021, according to PwC!
