1. Online Tutor
If you’re doing well in college, it’s easy to think everyone else is too, but the truth is that many people struggle with passing their courses. You could make a living by helping them out and teaching them what you know.

But don’t stop with fellow college students. You can also teach kids – from elementary school to high school, there are plenty of kids who could use your help.

Thankfully, with the Internet, you don’t have to be limited to your local geographic area. You can teach kids and people from all over the world.


2. Search Engine Evaluator
Search engines like Google and Bing rely on user feedback to update their algorithms in ways that serve people better.

You could be one of the people who fills out feedback forms and lets them know what they need to do in order to improve.


3. Social Media Manager
We all spend a lot of time on social media every day – Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, and the list goes on. If you’re used to getting a lot of likes or comments, or if you’re great at motivating others through your posts, you might want to consider turning this into a profession.

Social media managers build communities for companies on social media, engage these communities in conversations (for example, getting a lot of comments), and encourage them to take some sort of an action (like reading a blog post, signing up to an email list, or buying a product). Social media managers also play a vital role in building brand awareness for a company.

4. Freelance Writer
Social media managers promote content that builds relationships and promotes sales for companies. Freelance writers write the content. There’s a huge need for writers now, as more and more companies want to build long term trust with their target audiences, and they do that by providing top quality content.

Great freelance writers stay up to date on marketing trends and research and know which content types work best when. They’re not only skilled at conveying complicated ideas, but they know how to do it in a way that best converts in a particular content format.

Well-fed freelance writers stay out of “content farms” and bidding sites, where you compete with hundreds of other writers for the same projects and get the gig if you under-quote yourself enough. To be a well-fed freelance writer, you need to go out there and market yourself to your target audience – usually, marketing managers – like any other business owner.


5. Freelance Web Designer
Like freelance writers, freelance web designers need to market their services if they want to make a sustainable living. Websites that supposedly do the marketing work for you often come with a high price, as you’ll be expected to work for very cheap, and might end up losing money on the deals you take on.



To stand out of the crowd when they market themselves directly to prospective customers, freelance web designers need to prove more than their ability to design beautiful websites.

You try.
However, One problem I have with all these "5 types of online...", "3 ways to bla bla bla", is that detailed guides on how to start, are hard to find. undecided

Few weeks ago, I created a thread on how to buy and sell domains with as little as 3500 naira+. I also mentioned ways Creative people could earn money by simply suggesting business names (Zero Capital).

Be good at a skill and monetize it or create your own service targeting specific niche and bank. Anything will earn you money online. Earning money online legitimately is not easy but once you build up your reputation and dominate your niche you will make alot of money and leave like a king.

Copywriting is a good online job.
Copywriters are hot cake in online business.

Funnel hacking is another lucrative online skill one can use to work online.

Affiliate Marketing is another skill that is not a freelancing kind of business but it teaches you content marketing, email marketing, funnel hacking and advertising on Facebook, Google and YouTube.

Ok but you have not written anything really useful. This information is as useless as the *P* in Psychopath.
I was expecting to see websites,pages,links but you just recycled already known information and you believe you have helped somebody.
Imagine me saying 2 ways to make money in Nigeria and listing:
1)start a business
2)look for a job
Have you provided any useful information like that?

Nice one...but all familiar.

Ability to convert what one knows to financial / monetary value is what many people / professional lack knowledge of reason why there is rise in the unemployment level in many developing countries like Nigeria.
Unfortunately too this process of knowing how to monetize what you are taught as an undergraduate is not considered in school(university)!

Howbeit I keep telling people that no matter the kind of course or profession you are in, you can effectively monetize it via the online space either as a freelancer , content creator or consultant.
Some month ago(April) someone that is an electrical technical college graduate reached out through the facebook id on my profile and after 3 weeks paid training he now earns via Dropshipping & Dropservising of electrical tools and essentials via online and from the feedback I get he earns @least #60k(sixty thousand naira) weekly doing this.
With just 20 electrical shops he supplies daily with Sunday as his rest day with an average of #500(five hundred naira) profits per supplies he makes the said sixty thousand naira profits.
I told him to manage these 20clients for at least 3months then he can decide to source for another 20 with same locomotives he was thought in creating these 20 he delivers for.

That's why I keep saying that if you have access to internet + browsing gadgets and you ain't earning even $5 or it's naira equivalent daily or you are yet experiencing financial freedom then it's your own undoing(FAULT).

I see a lot of people here who feel like the posted information is not useful at all. The truth is that a lot of Nairalanders have broke mentality so they feel information like this is useless.

It was from a post I read about freelancing that prompted me to do further research on the topic and today, I am making much more from freelancing than I used to in my 9-5 job.

Make una continue sha
Aptly put....If you know you know!
