with N50.000 you can jolly well do a lot of business, but with global recession and the dollar hitting the roof tops, then N50,000 might not be a great amount after all.

However I will advise you go into online business, for example you can begin a web hosting reseller business, remember many businesses are going online these days and every body going online must need a web hosting account.
there are many Nigerian webhosts that you can to nairahost, abimco etc.

Other online biz could include blogging through which you can sell information products of your own or affilliate porducts of other merchants.

Your blog can be monetized with adsense and other pay per click programs.

there are many businesses you can do but the problem with many people is that they go in to biz 2day and want to make millions tomorrow , so avoid programs that promise that.

what ever you decide to the in the long run I wish you all the best, be careful dont get scammed

Usually, in business it is not always best to say "do this, that and the other and you with get money". That is the wrong place to start from. It would be more profitable to look around you and try and see what needs there are. What do people need, (not want) and how can you provide this? Are there any skills you have and you might be able to offer as a service? Is there anything that you're so good that that people will be willing to pay for? Is there a particular "thing" that you can get and you know people need? Can you offer your services as a go-between between people/organisations?

Lets start with your interests. What sort of things are you interested in?

naijacutee:

. What do people need, (not want) ?

5 years ago I would have said the same thing
but I discovered that you should sell want not
need.

i.e What do people want (not need) ?

For example, 2 student just graduated from secondary school,let say
you are selling 2 product as listed below.

1. how to get a visa to travel to USA in less than 10 days from now

2. how to pass jamb exam

which one do you think they will choose ?

of course they NEED to pass jamb to be admitted into a university but

The two student will definitely pick number one because they WANT to
travel to USA because of the opportunities available to them there

so when you decide to start a business ask yourself this question

WHAT DO PEOPLE WANT

If we are to take both cases and explore further, you'll see that there are various levels of needs. If we introduce a more "urgent" need into the equation i.e

3. Food to satisfy your hunger now-now

Which do you think they'll pick?

The best thing is to see how that money can be invested and raised a little higher, because I do not see a viable business U can do for that amount except pure water business or newspaper vendor or recharge card sales or the likes of these.
First start small with something you know you can pursue with all vigour and zeal, to later stand tall.

The first question here should be : what do l know/have a skill/profession ; it will make it a lot easier . But even without skills you can start out online - as a internet enterpreneur .

To start a business:
1. look inside and see how you can fill a need or solve a problem. The cab guy in transport section is solving a problem by transporting people from point A to B
2. Look around your hobby, passion etc and see what you can offer.
3. consider your resources

hey whether online or offline when you have focus and a good business plan you will make it. it is a matter of time.

Some young graduate that i know just bought popcorn machine. They are planning to takeover the schools in their neighbourhood with time.

i have even offer to give them some professional marketing consulting.

Have business plan before going into any business.
i love online business because you can start with less than 50k.
Do you know you can buy product with resell right for 3-6k and sell for profit just like buying a car and selling it the only difference is that this is digital which means more gain for you.


All the best.

Well Poster I don't know your kind of person but perhaps these ideas are not bad;

1. Become a honey dealer
2. How about reselling GSM accessories (Batteries, Casings, Holders etc)
3. Cold drinks (Soft drinks, Bottled water etc)
4. Selling Suits is another option
5. Selling Shoes, Bags etc

Or if you are tech savvy you could try;

Vanilla, I understand your fear about online business. However, check the global economy today, the most profitable organisations in the past couple of years have been those in IT/Internet biz.
I have a very cool suggestion for you. The total start up is not even up to what you have. Its bulk sms biz. Check sms portal creator . com
