About 86.45% of Nigerians have this question on their head, even me, after my graduation from the University I was stucked with this question too on how to make money, because in our country getting a job with your Degree is 50/50. So I keep doing research for a long period of time just to get my direction towards success, sounds easy to you? It actually not. I am going to introduce to you what few Nigerians do to make money. This article is based on legit ways to make it on every aspect but Not limited to Nigerians only.
Making money online
I enjoy writing about this because I have been successful on this path and I am still doing it, I started 2011 trying make money online, it wasn’t a success, I almost gave up, I call it HUSTLING just to keep my morals high so I could keep pushing. I am not here to tell stories but to Educate you on how you too can make it in the online community of BUSINESS IDEAS of Money making.
FACEBOOK ADS / INSTAGRAM
Facebook being one of the Top 5 most visit websites in the world today, almost every country in the world use facebook.com.
My Friend Racheal makes 100k monthly using Facebook ads in Nigeria, and it’s even small to compare with what my very closest friend Zanx makes, he earns 250k monthly, sounds interesting right? OK now let me burst your brains and show you how it works.
Like I say all this methods are legit ways to make money, you wouldn’t find illegal means here, stop reading if you are looking for quick money schemes or free money. Proceed if you are ready to be among the successful earners in the internet market today!
So moving forward, these smart guys earns this Facebook money simply by selling a product and advertising it through Facebook ads and boom! The money comes out. Let me go deeper for your understanding. Zanx started very small, He did his research and discovered Pink lips balm products is in high demand by Nigerians but are only in few places.
He got 20pcs of Pink lips balm at a wholesale price for the rate of N550. He placed an ad on Facebook of $5 campaign daily to advertise the products to reach thousands of people so as to get orders. He targeted Abuja and other states around that zone, just to have a fast and efficient delivery when orders start to come. The whole country if you are capable of handling deliveries.
After placing the ads just before 24hrs, there was already 3 orders waiting him
One at Nasarawa, another at Abuja and the third one in Suleja Niger State am serious I can’t joke with something like this. I forget to mention, His selling Price was 2k. From his home he was able to deliver to his customers. Within a week he was able to sell all the 20pcs, and still have orders pending.
So dear readers, the idea is to get a product of high demand but are limited in the market. My friend continued with other products and tripled his income.
What is required?
- A Facebook account
- Facebook advertising account, you get it using Facebook
- A Facebook page
The above requirement is the basics.
If you want to move forward in becoming a pro on Facebook ad marketing like my friend Zanx, you should follow the next steps
Sales Page – Recommended
Is it getting complicated? Don’t worry, my steps are easy to understand. A sales page is a page that describes what you are selling online this includes the price, quality and quantity, most especially how to order the product.
Create a website, it doesn’t need to be professional, but what is required is to get sales page, you can hire someone to do that for you, it won’t cost you much.
Or contact me for assistance.
This sales page/link is what your customers would see when they click on the ad u previously created. The pages contains a form where the customer enters his names, address/ location and quantity, you can add more fields and you can integrate online payment gateway, but I don’t recommend it because Nigerians hardly trust stuffs like that. Pay on delivery would be better, depending on how you want your payment to be, use your best judgment.
Example of a sales page is below.
CREATING A BLOG/ WEBSITE
Nigeria bloggers have 28.6% success rate, why because they don’t write. Please don’t believe in plagiarism, I am a victim too I starting my first blog in 2008, but it was a failure I didn’t knew much about blogging, i didn’t want to write, I copy and paste thinking that’s what blogging was all about, until I started to rip all the consequences.
I encourage quality contents and you know that’s where the money is.
If you are too busy to write then hire someone for guest posting, they’ll help you do the Job.
