So if you are willing to take the risk which I recommend you do, here are 5 Business Ideas to earn money online.
1. Online Consultancy Business
Consultancy business is one of the ways to make quick money online. A consultancy business offers professional advice in different business and personal niche markets.
However, to be successful in consulting business, you need to establish that you are an authority in the niche market you’re operating in. This is to say that you must keep yourself up-to-date with latest trends in the business sector to be able to offer valuable advice.
Let’s say you’re a photographer who wants to start online consultancy business. You will need to set up a platform where other photographers or people who are interested in photography can come to learn useful tips and tricks that’ll make them better in the art.
Once your reputation is established to provide valuable information, they’ll be more than willing to give you their money in exchange for quality advice.
2. Affiliate Business
This is another way you can earn online with little or no capital.
Wikipedia says “Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. You find a product you like, promote it to others, and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make.”
Most online malls run affiliate programs. In Nigeria, Konga and Jumia are the best places to register for affiliate marketing. Upon registration, you will be given a custom link people can follow to shop. You earn a commission on every product bought on these sites through your link.
To succeed in affiliate marketing, you may need to learn smart marketing techniques. In addition, it is advisable to concentrate your effort on goods that are on high demand. Smartphones and gadgets are in high demand these days.
Freelancing allows you to take advantage of whatever your unique skills are and earn money by using them. Freelancing is becoming increasingly popular and it guarantees you more free time as you can work from home.
If you are a writer, web designer, graphic designer, editor, blogger…the freelancing may be the thing for you.
According Adnan Manzoor, an entrepreneur and blooger,
“The best thing about freelancing is that you can always find work that suits your skills. You can use design, technical, writing, teaching, or even oratory skills to earn money. All you need to do is to determine your special skill and look for work accordingly.”
5 Business Ideas to earn money online:
Blogging is another way you can earn online today. If you have specialized knowledge in a particular niche and have good writing skill, you can start blogging and generate a loyal followership that will in return create an income for you.
If your readers consider information you provide on your blog meaningful, they can subscribe to products and services you sell through that blog, knowing you are an expert in your chosen field and will always offer the best. You do not need to have any technical skills to start a blog. However, note that unique blog ideas are more successful than blogs on general topics.
5. Online marketing services

You can earn cool money by helping firms (1) Increase their online presence, (2) Perform market research and (3) Integrate their online profiles and platforms.
