Hottest Businesses Every Nigerian Students Should Start While On Holidays

Welcome to my blog. In this post, I’ll be highlighting businesses that every Nigerian student should start while on holidays.

As schools are closing for holidays, these businesses will not only keep you busy, but provide more income that will help your finances in school.

The comfortable part about these businesses is that they can be run from the comfort of your homes.

Below are some of the businesses you should consider running:


1. Affiliate marketing.

You can venture into affiliate marketing easily from the comfort of your home. This lucrative online business involves you helping a company to sell their products and in return earn commissions. Through your affiliate link, which you can promote on social media, blogs, customers can purchase the products.


2. Blogging.

Blogging is another lucrative and easy online business to run. Apart from it being fun, it can also help to pay bills. You can create free blogs on blogspot.


3. Mini Importation.

You can start mini importation. This may look difficult at first glance, but it’s actually easy. All you need do is identify people’s demand in Nigeria which is scarce. Search for these items on eCommerce sites like Aliexpress, Amazon, Alibaba and purchase them through a procurement agent. You can start with as little as 50k Naira or even less.


4. Website Design/Development.

Designing and developing of websites and apps are the gold mines of the internet. With more and more businesses coming online, especially in Nigeria, the demands for websites will only skyrocket. The good thing is you don’t even need to know php very much. Just know how to use CMS and other Web design tools. For instance, understanding how to use WordPress will help get you started. With many tools, plugins and themes, things will only get easier.


5. Recharge Card Business.

This business is popular in Nigeria. With the growing number of phone users and Internet subscribers, you will hit it big if you venture into this.


6. Freelancing and Content Writing.

Make money writing contents for companies daily. You can do that directly by applying to be a content writer for a company or you use peer to peer service like Fiverr.

Companies in Nigeria like media blogs, startups are desperate in need of unique and relevant contents for their Nigerian audience. They will pay you for writing for them. You can also edit and translate contents for fees.


7. Social Media Marketing and Networking.

Use social media platforms, like Facebook, Twitter to sell and promote businesses. You can build a fan base and become a social media influencer. Influencers are sought after by companies. You can earn cool money by simply ‘tweeting’ about their products.


8. Landed Property.

This is an alternative to the expensive Real Estate.  Landed Property is the alternative for those who love Real Estate but can’t afford the capital.

The good thing about this investment is that it doesn’t require much efforts. All you need do is to purchase cheap lands after doing due diligence. Becuase landed properties will always appreciate, it’s only a matter of time. For starters, you can purchase cheap lands in Northern Nigeria and leave it for 10 years and above and then sell when the property must have appreciated. And you don’t need big capital to start. You can get cheap lands for as low as 15k Naira in the North!


9. Scriptwriting.

Are you a talented script writer? This is another great business deal for you! You can write script for schools, events and Nollywood.


10. Photography.

This is another awesome business idea. This is one of the easiest business you can do in Nigeria. Get paid taking pictures in events and occasions.


11. Teaching/ Giving Tutorials.

This is a great and versatile one as you can run it both online and offline.

Online, start a blog or use social media platforms to teach people how to do something.

Offline, you can apply for a teaching job or take UTME and WAEC private lessons and get paid.

You can combine both and make even more cash.


12. Resume Writing.

Writing resume is a hot job in Nigeria. Job seekers are constantly looking for professionals to write quality resume for them. Currently, you can charge as much as 40,000 Naira for one resume.


13. Sports Viewing Centre and Game Shop.

These businesses are very lucrative in Nigeria. You can run both at the same time. Nigerians will always pay to watch Premier League, Laliga and Champions Leagues. Some will also pay to play games. You can run one or both, depending on your capital.


14. Graphic Designing.

Every business needs graphics! Logo, images for advertising, favicons, book covers design, animations, etc! You can also use tools like Canva if you’re not a professional graphic designer.


15. Selling Courses Online.

This is another lucrative business. Make money selling Courses in form of ebooks or via online platforms like Coursera.


16. Cyber Cafe.

Start a Cyber Cafe if you have the capital. There are several services you can render in the Cafe like printing, online registration, photocopy, Web designing, graphic Designing,  scanning, etc.
