How to make money online

With the Growing popularity of the internet, one question that has been central to most of the messages I have received via Short Message Service and emails is: How to make money online? Truth is, making money online has become a hot topic globally. In line with this trend, therefore, the Ministry of Communications Technology has recently inaugurated the Naijacloud project with the primary objective of creating awareness about online work opportunities for millions of unemployed Nigerian youths.

 This has simply given credence to the fact even the Nigerian Government is eager to provive online jobs for its citizens. My experience in making money online dates back to 2006, and since then, I have learnt a lot and have been involved in various kinds of online business ventures. I will mention a few of them to serve as a guide where relevant.


  • Take your business online
When people ask me about making money online, I simply ask them if they already had a business. If the answer is yes, I advise them to go online. This is one of the fastest ways to make money online. Taking your business online is nothing other than developing a simple website with e-commerce capabilities such that a potential client can visit and place orders for your products or services.

  • Sell a product or offer a service
This is closely related to the firstpoint discussed above. You can never make money online if you do not have a product or service that someone, somewhere is willing to pay for. So, create a new product and take it online. How about your services? That too can be unbundled and offered cheaply online. For instance, it may be wise as a legal practitioner to break down the services you offer and place on your website so as to attract Small and Medium Enterprises that usually regard legal services as something only big businesses can afford

One of the goals of the Nairotech is to help you start and run a successful blog using one of the world's most popular blogging Website- Blogger.
For me, the decision to start a professional blog came up four years ago and has really helped me tremendously. Besides the little money I make from advertisements on my blog, there is also an opportunity to make money as an affiliate of other services or products. Most importantly, owning a blog has helped me win big offline consulting gigs and speaking opportunities that I might ordinarily not have been properly positioned for.

An increasing number of Nigerians ( I know a few) have jumped on the online freelancing bandwagon and they are truly making ends meet.
Online freelancing is huge at the moment and countries like India is a testimony to  that fact. It is possible to make money online. A number of dervice-based professionals will readily find someone online willing to pay for their services once they are convinced of the value.

A number of people have got their fingers burnt in forex trading, including yours truly, but this is not to say that it does not work. I think what has happened to the majority of people who must have had some sort of negative experiences is the fact that we allowed greed to take control. I have a highly contented friend who still makes money from forex, but a number of forex gurus will consider him a ''mugu'' if they hear he is satisfied with the little he makes.

I have just given you few layed down tips on money making online, you can now add yours using the comment box because my blood is already rushing to hear what you have to say or contribute.. With this medium, we can learn better and exploit other ways of making money online.

Disclaimer: I am not in any way stating that any of these are sure-proof, but they might be worth looking into as a means of making profit from your internet presence.
The most important piece of advice is for you to get involved in something you love and have fun doing...
