|66 SIDE HUSTLE IDEAS For Making Money Off The Internet by Eunixa(f): 1:17pm On May 15, 2018|
One of my friends – Jane needs money, the money given to her as pocket money from home is mostly insufficient to cover her needs. On Tuesday, her mother sent her N6000 (roughly calculated as $16 ) to cover all her expenses for the month. She needs to restock her foodstuff with at least N3000 (roughly calculated as $8 ), by the end of the week, she has to buy some textbooks and pay some lab fees worth of N3000 (roughly calculated as $8 ). By the time, she does all this, what will she spend during the month?
That’s one of the challenges many students face everyday, but adults have things even worse because they have a lot more costs to consider with no consistent flow of money from anywhere. And this is the reason why Side hustles are essential off the Internet or on the Internet.
Even if you don’t have any shortage of money, you can start a side hustle business just for the experience or the thrill of finally earning money yourself. If you take this mindset, then the sky is your starting point. Don’t be one of those students that finish from the University only to sit at home jobless, poaching off friends, parents, and relatives while “SEARCHING” for a white-collar job.
HERE ARE THE 66 SIDE HUSTLE IDEAS THAT YOU CAN IMPLEMENT TO MAKE MONEY OFF THE INTERNET:
1. Events Planning and Management
2. Graphic designing
This involves using computer software such as Corel Draw, Photoshop, and many others to create a banner, invitation card, brochure, business card, Logo, Poster/Flyer, etc. I only started learning graphic design in September 2017 but even though I’m not an expert now, I’ve come a long way since when I was still a beginner. I can say I’m at the Amateur stage of graphic design mostly because I don’t have much time to develop myself. If you want proof, I designed the logo of this site all my lonesome.
Do you know how to write short stories, poems, catchy adverts or even better blog posts or just basically creative writing? Then you should be able to find someone to offer your services to on your campus. Though you’ll have to do a lot of advertisements because just as you have a large number of potential customers, you also have a large number of competitors.
4. Hairdressing services
This entails both making different hairstyles and styling people’s hair for them. This is actually a very good source of income especially if you know how to braid hair and make technical hairstyles. And the best part, it doesn’t take that much time.
Let me use this scenario to explain, a student, Folake knows how to make hair and she needs to make some money so she decides to do just above 5 people’s hair every week during the periods after lectures when she’s too tired to read. So every week, she makes up to 5000 especially if she’s making braids or fixing hair. Cashing in 5k every week is a good start on the journey to making money for an undergraduate.
Ask anyone, we all know that Photographers at Nigerian functions take pictures of people and make a ton of money from it especially if they are professional and very good at it.
The university is a good place to make money as a photographer. You can take passports, take photos of events like matriculation and inaugurations, take pictures of face models, cloth models, etc and many other things. All you have to do is have really good picture taking/photo editing skills which you’ll combine to make you a big name in the sea of photographers in your university.
6. Photo editing
Though personally, I believe this should be under Photography because a good photographer should also know how to edit his photos to give the desired effect. However, many photographers pay people to edit their customers’ photos for them, so you can also do this.
7. Baking and Pastries
All you need to start a business in this area is to have basic baking knowledge. Know how to bake a cake and dress it with royal icing or fondant if you want to focus on cakes. But there are other pastries like doughnut, puff puff, small chops, meat pie, etc that you can make and sell. The profit may look small but consistency brings great results.
Both online and offline, videography especially video editing is a profitable venture as many people shoot different videos that need editing to be professional.
You can make good money helping students mend their clothes and sew new ones. If you’re very good, your customers will run to you themselves.
10. Phone Repairs
Almost everyone in the world owns a mobile phone, in a Nigerian University where you need to keep abreast of news, changed lecture venues, changed timetables, etc, a phone is very vital or you’ll end up missing out on a lot of things and some have even missed out on rescheduled tests because of lack of a mobile phone. That is why when anything goes wrong with a student’s phone, they start a search for a trusted person to repair their phones. Those are your target audience.
