Taking Advantages Of Opportunities To Make Money During NYSC by Intelligentdude(m): 6:13pm On Jul 12
Hello all,I would be dropping some thoughts and some opportunities corp members can take advantage of to make money while serving (This applies to all and sundry though)

I have had a good number of Corp members chat me up with complaints of being broke even at the beginning of the Month and I thought it wise to share some of these opportunities.

Kindly note that it is not really about how much you earn but more about how much you can keep and re-invest.

Here are the opportunities:

1) Making Chatbots
You can learn for free how to make Chatbots for companies without coding.
Chatbots are in, and it has reached the point where every business needs one. Chatbots have become a huge opportunity for companies to engage with their customers, gather data, and improve their marketing and customer care efforts. You can start your own chatbot creation business easily and quickly without needing to code.

2) Personal or Virtual Assistant
Although personal and virtual assistant jobs do not sound glamorous, they do pay well. If you have already held this job in an office, you will find the digital version allows for a lot more freedom. Use services like Upwork.com,Fiver.com and platforms like LinkedIn,Facebook to find clients.
You can choose:
• Your clients
• Your hours
• Your hourly, daily, or monthly pay rate

3)Social Media Consultant
Who doesn’t love Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram? Fancy yourself to be a bit of whiz, but don’t have any formal training? Twitter and Google, among other platforms, offer complete professional courses with recognized certifications that require little to no money. Social media is also a business that has unlimited potential with a client base that can span across the world.

4) Graphic Designer
Companies are always in search for branding that tells people about what they do. If you can follow company guidelines and customer needs, all you will need to get started is a computer and applications such as Photoshop,Crello,Canva or Illustrator.
Types of media you will be responsible for creating include:
• Logos
• Fliers
• Newsletters
• Magazines
• Information sheets
• Letters
• Advertisements

5) Designing Business Plans
Having a eureka moment is great, but it can be hard to put that idea down on paper in a way that will speak to a potential investor. If you have owned your own business in the past or earned a business degree, why not help those with a eureka moment start something they love? Plan your fee around the various packages you are prepared to offer your clients. You can either:
• Create an electronic copy that your client can customize
• Keep a copy on file and continue customizing it according to their needs
• Create various templates that you can show your customers and how you can customize the templates for them accordingly.

6) Informational Product Creator
Similar to blogging or vlogging, creating informational products is your chance to put your expertise in an e-book or some form of digital format and selling it to the online world. Find a niche that's not been overdone and start writing.
You can sell your information piece on platforms such as Amazon Books or to target audience who you feel need the book.

7) Flipping Websites
Flipping a website is the art of buying an already existing website, improving it, and selling it. With the right web development skills, it is a very easy and cheap trade to explore. That said, you need to be able to identify websites that have the potential for improvement.

8. Editorial Services
An editorial services business is easy to start, requires no initial monetary investment, and has a huge potential for expansion. From small and large businesses to authors and students, your client base could be endless. You can offer a variety of services, some of which include:
• Copywriting
• Ghostwriting
• Magazine article writing
• Newspaper article writing
• Web content writing
• Proofreading
• Editing
• Indexing
• Book writing

9) Video Production
There are a number of ways you can use videography to create your own home-based business. There are so many people wanting to become YouTube celebrities who don't have the skills to upload high-quality, well-edited videos. Other services you could offer include:
• Vlog editing
• Creating music videos
• Voice-overs
• Adverts

10) Referral Services
Are you the person who all your friends and family call when they're trying to find a good restaurant, lawyer,car, plumber or gardener? If that's the case and you love referring them to all the lovely businesses you know of in your neighborhood, you could start a business doing just that. You'll be able to work with individuals and businesses, helping customers find what they want, and businesses gain more clients. To get started, you will need to:
• Gather a list of businesses you want on your referral lists
• Sell them the benefits of being on your list
• Place ads online and in the Yellow Pages to gain customers
