Graphic design

While having a formal background in graphic design will absolutely come in handy, it’s also relatively easy to learn the basics of graphic design on your own using tools like Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.

But before you can start making a living as a graphic designer, you will need to develop your recommended skills and be creative in all of your designs. I recommend showcasing your design skills on platforms like Instagram and Facebook to gain a good client base.

Freelance content development/ghostwriter

Companies in Nigeria, such as media agencies, blogs, and startups, will pay a lot for someone who can write clean content copy, whether it’s for ads, websites, or blogs. However, consider how much work it takes to make freelancing your full-time job.

Blogger or vlogger

Starting a blog/vlog with a particular niche and targeting a particular set of individuals is a lucrative business idea with great potential.

Your first step is to sharpen your writing skills. Also to understand what your audience craves. You’ll have to learn how to write a blog post that will generate traffic. Attract readers on a regular basis.
