Start advertising yourself
Let your friends know what you are doing
Update your WhatsApp status with your social media works so that people will know you.
You will be amazed to see the way you be getting jobs from people

5. Affiliate marketing: 

Promote products or services of other companies and earn a commission for each sale made through your unique referral link.

This means you help to advertise products or services for other companies. When people buy these products or services through the special link you give them, you get some money as a reward. 

It is like being a salesperson, but you don't have to store or deliver the products yourself. You are only promoting the product, after they bought it, the company will give you a percentage.

This one is very sweet, right? But you must know how to convince people to buy the product oh. It's not an easy move but is profitable.

For example, if you are an affiliate marketer of Jumia and someone buys a product through your affiliate link, you will earn 5 to 10% of the product price.

6. Creating and selling digital products:

Selling digital products is a very good online business to venture into. You will be surprised by the kind of money you will be making by selling ebooks, printables, or courses on platforms like Gumroad or Sellfy and Amazon.

Check yourself very well, start with what you are passionate about and love to do, write about it, convert it to an ebook and sell it to your hungry customers.

Start gathering experience, put it into practice and see how you are going to fly.

7. Blogging:

Blogging! This is where my own stream of income started from. I'm happy to be a blogger.

Blogging can make you rich as a student. Blogging is about writing articles and publishing them on a website just like this one you are reading now.

According to Sendplus, they defined blogging as the process that implies creating articles, photos, and other forms of content and publishing them on a website.

Create a blog and monetize it with advertising, sponsored content, or affiliate marketing.

Let me explain. As a student, writing shouldn't be your problem. Do you know the sweetest part? You can even write from those textbooks you are buying with thousands of naira in your class.

Some of the content in that textbook is not online and people are searching for it. But you will buy it and keep it just for nothing.

You can reach out to me if you need mentorship.

8. Dropshipping:
