In this article, I will reveal to you the best ways to work from home and how to make money online in Nigeria this year.
It is no longer news that running a physical business in Nigeria is quite risky.
The recent End SARS protests in which Nigerians kicked against police brutality saw a total breakdown of law and order.
Megastores like Shoptite and Spar in Lekki were looted, the same fate befell various private businesses on Adeniran Ogunsanya and the Bode Thomas areas in Surulere of Lagos where vandalism and robbery became the order of the day.
Innocent people on the streets were shot at, schools were closed and coffee was imposed.
That means people whose livelihood depends on going out everyday were adversely affected.
Another stack reality is the high rate of unemployment in Nigeria.
Millions of young Nigerians already sit at home because they have no jobs.
However, the best way of overcoming the sad situation is finding a way to make money from home in Nigeria.
Advantages of working from home in Nigeria
When you work from home, you expenses are greatly reduced as the money you spend on transportation is mostly saved.
Besides, the quality of your life greatly improves and your stress level reduces (since you no longer spend so much time on the road).
Also you will have more time to spend with your family and friends and even do more of the things that you love the most.
The most important reason for finding a way to make money online in Nigeria is you mostly earn in foreign currency.
If you earn an income in US Dollars,Euro or Pounds, you will have a greater disposable income due to the exchange rate between the Naira and the Dollar.

Now that I’ve shown you the benefits let’s get down to the koko.
There are actually different ways to make money online from Nigeria, however many people do not know about it.
I will do my best to highlight them below and even point you on how to get started almost immediately.
The best way of learning anything is learning directly from an expert who is already achieving results in what you’re hoping to do.
Warning: Before we continue, I will be mentioning different methods on making money online and might include some resources and trainings that are paid for.
You don’t have to take these trainings now if you don’t have the money. What’s important is you take the ideas you got from this blog and get to work immediately since you’ll now have a sense of direction.
I must warn you again that making money online is not a get rich scheme.

You don’t have to do all the methods I will be revealing to you. All you need to do is pick one method that you will enjoy and give it your all until you begin to produce results.
Here are 5 ways to make money online in Nigeria
- Freelancing: This is where you offer your skills and services to people online in order to get paid. Some of the freelance skills and services you can offer include Copywriting, Video editing, Graphics design, web development & mobile app creation etc. As a freelancer, you can offer your services to both Nigerian and foreign clients. One of the best sites to start freelancing in Nigeria is Upwork & Fiverr. However, if you’d like some expert coaching on how to get started with freelancing as a writer, I’ll recommend someone I know later in the article.
Starting your own YouTube channel is becoming one of the most popular methods of making money online but not a lot of people know how to go about it. With your YouTube channel, you can share comedy videos, tutorial videos, makeup videos or talk about anything you’re passionate about and you will not only build an audience but will also be paid for it. If you’d like to get started with YouTube, checkout this training. It shows you how to build a successful YouTube channel even if all you have is a cheap China phone.
3. Trading: You can trade forex in Nigeria, cryptocurrencies, stocks and also binary options. However this is a risky venture and is only recommended for the pros and people who already have some disposable capital. If you’re interested in forex trading, check this training or fill the form below and I will recommend someone who can train you on trading.
4. Affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is the process of recommending other people’s products and getting a commission from when you make a sale. In this article, I’m recommending people who can teach you how to get started in specific areas.
If you go ahead and take their trainings, I will get a commission. That is how affiliate marketing works.
In affiliate marketing, there are what they call affiliate networks which is where you will get the products to sell.
One quick way of promoting these products is through your social media channels or via your WhatsApp .
If you want a professional affiliate marketing training in Nigeria, I recommend 72 hour income generator by Toyin Omotosho.
He is the founder of Expertnaire, a top Nigerian affiliate network with plenty of offers you can promote. You can signup to Expertnaire here.
Another good affiliate network for foreign products is Clickbank. I did a YouTube video on how to create a Clickbank account in Nigeria. You can watch it here.
