|6 Helpful Tips For Making Money As A Student by Opinionated: 1:45pm On Sep 12|
There is a lot students can do to earn an income while actively working to garner their degree qualifications. Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency, shares 6 helpful tips for making money as a student.
Do Freelance Writing For Blogs or Businesses
If you’re good at writing, you can consider doing freelance writing for blogs as one way of earning an income as a student. Aside blogs, many businesses are looking for freelance writers to help them meet their writing and content creation needs, so you can take advantage of this and apply for freelance jobs with these businesses.
Consider Doing Online Design Work
For students who consider themselves artists, have a knack for graphic design and are really good with Coreldraw, Photoshop or other graphic design software, doing online design work, like making small graphics for advertisements and full site redesigns for websites and businesses, can be a great way to earn an income. Students can also consider entering design competitions that offer monetary awards for winners, and stand a chance to get paid a good amount of money if they win.
Consider Becoming a Voice-Over Artist
Doing voice-over work for production companies and advertising agencies is another great way to earn an income as a student. If you have a great voice and some broadcasting talent, you can apply for voice-over opportunities and get paid doing voice-over work for people and businesses.
Do Printing Jobs
Considering the fact that students, especially university students, do a lot of printing work, you can set up a mini-printing business with an easily affordable deskjet printer whose inks can be easily refilled, and start printing for students at your own rates. You can set up this business close to any student’s hostel or even from your room, and be on your way to making some side income as a student.
Real Estate/House Agent
As a student, if you are conversant with your locality, you can use your free time to search for accommodation for freshers and fellow students in your school environment, charging them a commissions/agents fee for your service.
Sell Your Skills
Whatever skill you have, offer it as a service to people at a cost. If you are good at cooking, considering providing catering services to those in need of it at a reasonable cost. If you are good at sewing, considering making clothes for people at a cost. If you’re good at phone or computer repairs and maintenance, also consider providing this service to people at a cost. You only need to ensure that you market your skills well, and put yourself out there so people can see what you have to offer. You can also sell your services on online sites like Fiverr, Jumia Food etc.

The way you people say these things as if it's easy.
These IT skills are 'skills' and they require time too.
You don't just wake up and start graphic design, or printing or writing for bloggers. They require skills.
We seem to make them sound like 'breathing' that you don't need to learn.
Why don't you add football, rapping (Efe comes to mind), dancing, etc to the list.
As a student, you can make money with any skill you have.
Moral of the lesson LEARN A SKILL
This 'na-so-ee-easy' worldview that we seem to attach to IT skills is what is leading to mediocre blogs everywhere, quack developers, bend-bend website and what have you.
Learn a skill, before you talk of making money off it.

Graphic design is somewhat easy na.
I started learning it 4months ago without any prior knowledge of design whatsoever.
Now I'm on the middle of a $125 gig (I guess I landed the job because of the way i choose to market myself), I know it's small but considering the timeframe I started doing this, i can only but imagine the good things that lies ahead.
Op forgot to add Yahoo Yahoo

I don't know that laptop sha.
I use Adobe softwares, works quite alright on a 2gb ram PC (I used one before), but It freezes alot. Works better on the 4gb ram laptop i use now even though the minimum requirement for the software na 8gb ram I go dey manage this one until Baba God bless me with a better one .
No no if your lappy is 1gb unless you want to be using 1995-2005 softwares
