You must have made money before, by selling goods or anything, getting paid a monthly salary or for doing a job.
And if you haven’t, you must have bought something such as food.
Whichever way you have made money and interacted with it, it is the same principle you will make money online.
You must offer something of value to another person in exchange for money.
How are you going to make money online? This is a complex question as there are many ways you can make money online, especially in Nigeria.
Money is an exchange of value.
Ask yourself, what value do I have that can be exchanged for money?
So it’s about YOU, as an entity.
The entity for money is YOU.
Later, I will give you the best advice from my years of experience working with people and doing business online.
Before that, let me share my story. There is a lesson you will take-away.
I’m a business kind of person, I love selling anything profitable to make money; later I discovered you can do the same thing online.
When I delve online, my first success was selling information products. Not my product but for a business firm. This type of online business is called affiliate marketing.
I will market this product, and recommend it to prospective buyers.
Later, the company stopped offering this product.
An information product as a solution has a short life span. Once the information gets saturated everywhere, its value drops.
And many people enter the field and there was no innovation to upgrade its value which keeps dropping.
So, many factors must have made the company to stop the business.
Meanwhile, by the side, I had started my online marketing service by accident and it was bringing more revenue.
But I have become interested in the information business which was about health, that’s beneficial.
So I continue doing this business for about 3 years, created my product.Ask yourself, what value do I have that can be exchanged for money? Click To Tweet
This online marketing side business was taking much time that I decided to focus on it while I plan to resume the information business later because I still love it.
I have got loads of innovative ideas and services to render the market.
Why I am sharing my story?
It’s because making money online is purely entrepreneurial.
You have to be calculative and be a problem solver.
That’s the way I see it, from experience and learning from people.
If you want to make money online in Nigeria, you’ve to be entrepreneurial in spirit.
It’s a real business; by responding to the demand through your supply of value.
How will YOU supply value?
As said, it resides within YOU.
How can you supply value?
It’s within your interest, what you enjoy doing, thinking about every day and you have a growing love for it.
This is your talent!
You can supply value within your talent.
Your talent becomes valuable when you solve problems people face with it.
What problem has growing interest and love? Think of how you can solve it.
Answer these questions sincerely?
1. What’s my interest?
2. Is it growing?
3. Is love growing as well?
4. Do you enjoy thinking about it or working on it?
5. How much time do you spend thinking about it?
Sincere answers will give you clues about what to do with your life and as a business.
Any activity or idea can be converted into a business that will become useful to people.
But it must have the qualities of real human problem, growing interest, and love, and then it will blossom into a profitable business venture in your face.
Means to make money online in Nigeria
There are many means you can make money online, but you must follow your heart.
Don’t copy what others are doing carelessly like a follower who lacks independence.
In my journey to make money online, I have always followed my heart, which interests me and it attracts what I want.
Yes, I wanted to make money like you, that was my interest and I discovered this health company and it was a success.
While I was doing it, I was in a community of other affiliate marketers. Many left the business out of degrading interest and love.
And I am hopeful they found another niche market to sink their teeth into.
It’s my growing interest that’s why I am where I am till today.
Even though the health and money market is an ever viable business, many still can’t cope because they lack interest and love.
While I was doing my online marketing service as a side business and job, I didn’t know the decision that was about to take place in my health business where the company stopped operation.
But I continue for a few years before I temporally shut it down.
So, I have the online marketing service to fall back on before I resume.It must have the qualities of real human problem, growing interest, and love, and then it will blossom into a profitable business venture in your face. Click To Tweet
This is about interest.
With no interest, there won’t be a resumption plan for my health business and there won’t be any online marketing service that I am doing.
Interest in a problem is the first thing you need when it comes to making money online.
Answer those questions, and then you will figure out how to build a business out of your interest and talent.
That’s my best advice for you
And it’s better if the Interest as an activity is One and Simple.
For example, when Dayo Adetiloye started his blogging business, his interest was youth entrepreneurship.
How youth can become entrepreneurial, how they can align their studies and talent to solve real problems in our society.
That’s all he was thinking about and wanted to do.
He enjoys it and the passion was growing.
He had written a book: unleashing your entrepreneurial potential for African students.
He started his blogging business, sharing messages about this book and the subject: “youth entrepreneurship” until opportunities came which are bringing in great revenue.
You’ve got to follow your heart, what interests you most in other to make money online in Nigeria.
Whichever way you choose to follow, you have to supply value and this can be found within your talent.
This is the best, its long term, purely entrepreneurial and rewarding for great money.
And whatever talent you’ve got, you can develop it to an extent you will spot real problems you can study and excellently solve for people.
Blogging business will accomplish this task for you.
