How To Earn A Lucrative Income From Online Business In A Nigerian Economy

Doing something that benefits someone else is simply the only reason why you or anyone else will make money as human needs are insatiable. We live in a world where constant fear of poverty envelopes our self consciousness, hence the need to generate income. You would agree with me that only one source of income in a place like Nigeria, most populous black Nation in the world, is never enough as our staggering economy cannot be relied upon. We have to create other opportunities to salvage our human wants and replenish the ‘scarce’ under-utilized resources that are surplus.As a graduate for more than 5 years, I have come to terms of getting a second career to make ends meet as the government has failed in her responsibility in creating jobs for a growing population work force. Unfortunately, some employers enslaved their employees by paying them peanuts as graduates despite the high cost of living in notably cities like Lagos, Port-Harcourt, Abuja, Enugu, etc in Nigeria as these employees are at the mercy of their bosses for fear of being out of job. However, credit must be given to some Non Governmental Agencies (NGOs) in organizing workshops such as Small Scale and Medium business program for training the unemployed to acquire a skill with assistances from corporate firms. This should be done from time to time as continuity is a key factor to sustain the dream.Back to my second career, I have developed a niche for myself in investing my time, energy and money in online business. One may think I am talking about the advanced fee fraud (better known as 419) in Nigerian parlance. Far from it, as people involved in it does not have a sustained income and they live in the constant fear of being apprehended by the anti-graft authorities. Perhaps, their worst disadvantage is that they rob themselves of their resourcefulness and the ability to earn money legitimately. Making money online in the legal way not only generates income for you but make you a specialist where your expertise is in demand for a service charge of course. Making money Online is exactly as it is in off line businesses, where you can only get paid by; manufacturing say a drilling machine which benefits a construction company, giving someone a hair cut or by providing a business services that benefits and adds value to another person’s life. According to some facts, the total amount of Online transactions in 2008 amounted to about USD $204 billion and is estimated to grow to USD $267 billion in year 2010 (Source: Credit Suisse; World leading Financial Services group). The popular website Yahoo.com which offer you email services for free is worth over USD $34.90 billion. Right now, there are several good things going on around you, but you can never be able to take advantage of them or enjoy them if you do not even know that they exist. These are secrets of life as if you are not informed, you are deformed. A good case is making money on the Internet which I am going to educate you.Do you know that the popular Search Engine, Google.com is worth $174.83 billion, and it is currently the biggest media company in the world? It is bigger than notables like Time Warner, the company which owns Time Magazine, CNN & America Online; it is bigger than Viacom, the owners of MTV and Paramount Pictures. In fact, Google is worth more than all the companies quoted in the Nigerian Stock Exchange combined! This includes Mobil, OANDO Plc, Guinness Plc Nigerian Breweries Plc, Guaranty Trust Bank and all the other banks quoted combined! A single Google.com share costs more than $450 and it is projected to reach $600 a piece sometime next year – that’s more than N50, 000 a piece (compare this to that of say Zenith bank that sold for about N55 – when the going was good.). The owner of NewsCorp, Rupert Murdoch paid $580 million to purchase MySpace.com. Can you also believe MySpace.com is free to use? Some years back, Google paid a whopping $1.65 Billion to acquire YouTube.com. YouTube.com just like MySpace also has nothing for sale too – it is completely free to register and use. The domain name Business.com was sold for a record $7,000,000! In case you have no idea, domain names cost just $8/yr to obtain! Now, why would rich investors put in so much money to acquire websites which have nothing for sale?” Besides, “How are these websites worth so much and how did that much money came about?” Have you wondered why corporate organizations like; The Punchonlineweb.com, Thisdayonline.com, Channelstv.com and even Nairaland.com continue to have strong readership and viewership to their websites? The answers to these questions are the secrets of making money online, and the reasons why the Internet is so overwhelmingly profitable.The good news is that our dreams in making it big must come from our determination to succeed. You do not need to start big as complex as Google, Yahoo or even Zenox Computers. According to Napoleon Hill “if you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way”. What you need is the smart and reasonable way of earning good income in our own ‘small’ way as a beginner. Let me introduce you to simple and profitable internet business opportunities to start earning money in Nigeria – Beginning today! These I have researched for your benefits despite all the costly mistakes I made in the past to arrive at this point.Getting started with Google AdSense or AdWords for publishers and advertisers respectively is a Google advertising programme that allow individuals or corporate organizations to promote their products or goods and services to the world through registered websites by engaging website owners to allow for a space to place these adverts (AdWords) on their monetize blog or websites for on-line visitors to view and click on these adverts thereby generating money for both the advertiser and website owners. Google AdWords are those little text boxes that appear to the right side of your search results on Google.com. It is a very efficient advertising system developed by Google. It costs you only $5 dollars to register and you are charged only when someone clicks on your advert. The minimum cost per click is about $0.05 (5 cents). Hence, the Google AdWords is suitable for Companies that wishes to advertise their goods and services. Google AdSense on the other hand is for publishers that promote their ideas or goods and services for the world to patronize from. How do I mean? You learn on how you can make money from Pay Per Click (PPC) advertisements. You are paid each time a visitor visits your website and clicks on any Google AdSense advert you have displayed on your website.This is not a joke. Remember I told you that Google.com is worth over $100 Billion; well this is one of the ways they make their money. Here they serve as ‘agents’ between people who want to attract visitors to their websites and people who have advertisement space on their own website. It doesn’t matter if what you have is a free website or not. A check would be sent to you when you earn up to $100 monthly.To get full benefit of this programme highlighted above you must own a Blog or Website as a platform as an individual or corporate organization. As a corporate entity you will definitely showcase your goods and services on net for people to know more about your business, example of such companies are Cadbury Plc, The Guardian Newspapers, Guinness Plc, etc. While that of individuals, you specialize in an area that is unique to you. I mean you can write on anything in your area of interests and get it published online. Gone are those days when we raise huge capital and queue for our books to be edited and get published. Now you can publish a book of more than a thousand pages without spending a dime. And with one of such books online you could be making a fortune by selling it online. I know it may sound difficult sitting down and writing a book but you can also resell some e-book that has reselling rights by buying one of them. There are thousands of written materials already out there with full Resell Rights. A product or material with resell rights means that you can sell the material to other people without it being illegal to do so – as if you actually wrote it! This sounds interesting?Remember you can write absolutely on anything! You can write on any area where you have specialized knowledge. By specialized knowledge I do not mean designing the latest fast train on earth! There is certainly some knowledge you have that is unique to you which someone else can benefit from. It could be knowledge in; Relationships, Events Management, Fish Farming, Stock Market Investments, Video Games, Mentoring, GSM Repairs, Health Tips, Cooking Recipes, Insurance, Match Making, FOREX, Securing VISA, etc. As you write on your areas of specialization, get it published on line via your website or blog and market it to interested buyers in Compact Discs or any device. I will teach you on how to catch on these market opportunities available to us.We presently live in very uncertain times now with all sorts of uprising in the nation and very terrible consequences to people who do not adapt quickly.
If you are really aware of what is presently happening in this country today, you will know that you can have a ‘secure’ job on Monday but by Tuesday you’re out of it – irrespective of your position in the establishment. Remember that the CEOs of seven banks have been arrested by the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) following Lamido Sanusi led CBN investigations on these banks and one of them now serving jail term due to misappropriation of bank funds and on non-performing loans given.Job security today does not lie in working for any ‘big, secure’ establishment. It lies in your own ability to do something on your own – at any given time. To be financially secure today, you have to adapt to the new nature of things. You have to adapt to The Era of Zero Job Security and the Age of Mega Successful Small businesses.You will agree with me that Nigeria is still a developing country and unfortunately we are still passing through stages of development despite our 50 Years Independence! Hence, the earlier we sought for a change the better for us and that of our generations unborn.

How I Made My Travel Certificates

Although my company is deeply involved in the design and sales of Travel Related Incentives and Rewards, first and foremost, we are a travel agency. Everything we do here is for the purpose of gaining access to travel customers.Travel Agencies have been through some pretty big changes over the years starting with the airlines deciding that we didn’t deserve a commission for our services anymore. That sort of snowballed through many other travel service providers as the Internet opened up access to many of the same travel sources that we travel agencies used to call our own.Today, instead of earning a commission by simply booking reservations for their clients, travel agencies must specialize in areas where they can guarantee travel service providers a large number of travelers. This allows the agency to negotiate rates below what is available to the consumer directly. So, the travel agency of this new era is now working for the travel services provider instead of the traveler. To make the new concept work, agencies are always looking for favorable pricing on the most desirable types of travel and then struggle to find the 1000’s of travelers they need so they can keep their contracts.I developed my business model a number of years ago before the commission crunch began and unknowingly got a jump on the trend. I decided to try and market travel packages through the Human Resource departments of large companies. I put together cruise packages based on favorable rates I was getting from a few cruise lines sailing out of Florida. I offered these discount packages to employees as a company benefit. The companies loved it and were quite willing to put my flyers in their employee’s pay envelopes each week. That was almost 20 years ago and I still have a few companies that still use my original program today.Getting really low rates on the most desirable types of travel is great but getting it for free is even better! While most agencies were desperately looking for more travelers, I knew if I could provide the travel services for little or nothing, this would never be a problem for me. I just had to figure out how I could get someone else to pay all or at least some of the travel expenses.Living in Florida I watched as condominiums were being built one after the other from one coast to the other and all points in between. These were time share condo developments and they were some of the nicest resorts that Florida had to offer. They had a lot of empty suites week after week and they were looking for travelers too. I made a few calls and soon after I had arrangements with dozens of resorts that would give me access to their accommodations simply to have the opportunity to show my travelers around in hopes they would buy. All I needed now was a cost effective way to let people know what I had to offer.It wasn’t just me that was looking for customers; everyone that was in any kind of business was looking for customers. I got together with a few marketing managers I knew and proposed that we work together. If they would cover the cost of the fees, I could give them a travel certificate that they could in turn give to their customers in reward for their business. It wasn’t long before I had several business owners who were promoting my travel packages by purchasing travel certificates from me and then giving them out to all their customers. It was the perfect idea: Travelers got to go to great places almost for free, my business associates got terrific sales incentives at a great price and I got plenty of travelers to fulfill my contracts with all my fees prepaid!Since then I’ve design 100’s of travel certificate programs. The scope of each program is based primarily on the amount of money the business wants to pay per certificate towards the fees. The travelers makes up the difference but still has access to deeply discounted travel services that they would not be able to get elsewhere.
