This is owning an online E-commerce store whereby products are shipped directly from the wholesalers to consumers without actually touching the product, and in a rising market such as we have in Nigeria you would need a good research and foresight as to which product is trending, and then look for a good supplier and have connection to customers.

I could still remember quite well when my uncle leased his new Peugeot 607 to an individual that wanted to use it for car hiring business and wow my uncle just sit at home and collects 25k every month, so this is a nice business you can lease your new vehicle to an individual or company under certain agreement and should be done in the presence of a lawyer.
10. Create An App.
Well as it seems just creating an app alone isn’t going to put money in your pockets, you have to create reasonable apps either put it on sale or make it free and then monetize it with either Google Admob or others but for preference sake I’d suggest Google Admob.
11. Create YouTube Videos And Make Money.
Millions if not billions of people spend quality amount of time on YouTube watching videos, even myself i spend a lot of time on YouTube either watching motivational talks or skit, so look for what your good at, get a plan , good phone or camera and create a unique channel then you can start uploading.

12. Makeup Artiste.
This is a very wide field of interest and a good way to make money on the side, besides every young girl or lady today would not go out unless they put a make up on, and you find out that most of them wear the wrong makeup , you could publish a video on makeup on YouTube and earn money, or you could do makeup for people and also earn, besides that movie and video directors are looking to hire the best, so make sure your good at makeup and you might get it.
13. Delivery At Spare Time.
If you haven’t heard domino pizza , Coldstone and a host of notable eatries in Nigeria are hiring part time delivery workers and that would not be a bad idea at Allen, so checkout the closest to you and make an inquiry to know if they need someone and you could make a few bucks this month.
15. Becoming A Middle Man.
This is quite simple and funny lets do a bit of word algebra. Mr A has a product he no longer needs and wants to dispose for X price and then you convince him that you would help him dispose that product so you see Mr B who wants Mr A product and willing to pay so you dispose Mr A product to Mr B so in other words your connecting sellers to buyers , yea if course there are tons of websites that does this but most people are scared of the process, so you could be a middle man. I have used the services of a middle man to sell blogs which is called escrow whereby the money is sent to the escrow after all is well then the escrow releases the money to the seller.
16. Hair Stylist.
I bet you never knew you could make a lot of money from making peoples hairs, when I mean hair stylist I am not just referring to women alone, men also everyone can be a hair stylist you just have to know what your doing have the right connection, okay how do you make a lot of money doing peoples hairs , take the technology and make use of it, the internet is booming lots of tweet and Instagrams and Facebook trends use all this to promote yourself showing pictures and videos of people you work for your uniqueness and stuff advertise your self with your phone number and see how the phone would keep on buzzing.
17. Fitness Trainer.
There are a lot of plus size ladies in Nigeria and you know how it is both for men, men are getting disgusted by their wife getting bigger and same as the women so everyone wants to keep their marriage and therefore wants to look fit and good for their spouse, so hey you’ve been going to the gym for years now why not use that knowledge to make loud cash as you can organize a fitness center or even do private fitness training to clients who don’t want to attend the fitness center and see how loads and loads of cash would come in.
Another side hustle that could make you money is modelling, you can also make a career with modelling, but before diving into it you would like to work on your face, posture, your legs and other physical stuff on your body after doing that and if you think your up to the task i would suggest you try out some modelling agencies in Nigeria or better still start your own modelling on Instagram.
19. Rent Out That Expensive Wears To Friends.
I would a use a story to narrate this , there was on time i had a broaks shoe of 25k and a rolex wrist watch that cost me 18k and then my friends would want to lend it every time so i devise a means to lease it to them for as low as 500 for the wrist watch and 1000 for the shoe and after the whole stuff even before i sold it out i made back the money i used to buy it from my friends. So you got that expensive weeding dress you could rent it out and make money.
20. Make Money Fixing/Repairing Smartphones And Computers.
A lot of money can be made from repair , fixing and even trouble shooting phines and computers in fact you could be different from the local repair men by taking your online using YouTube and ifixit.com.
Some one would like to ask the difference between a traditional writer like the newspaper editor and a blogger, well a newspaper or magazine editor only writes on topics which they are given to write on and writes on it. well blogging is quite similar to it but different in the sense that your audience can interact and your audience come online to your blog to view your articles it can vary from entertainment , business, relationship, insurance and a lot of others one would also like to ask how to make money blogging well that is quite easy consider paid advertisements, sponsored posts, and also some monetisation in form of adverts like Google Adsense , Media.net , Chikita, Propeller Ads and so on.
