- Content Revenue Sharing

Do you have interesting ideas on some topics but you don't have an audience to share the topics to? Then you can join sites like Blasting NewsNNU, Wakanda, and Blog9ja to start earning by participating in the platforms. Creating and establishing your own blog might take some time, especially if don't go through the proper tutorials required before embarking on it.

Unlike the academic writing we stated above, freelance content writing doesn't require any season or boom well in any particular time of the year.
You can join online job boards as they'll help you get many buyers. However, due to the competition in the job boards, getting freelancing gigs requires that you have previous positive reviews making it harder for new freelancers to queue into the biz. However, you can still decide to write for Nigerian websites that will pay you directly to your local bank account.

- Dropshipping

Drop shipping is a kind of supply chain management method in which the retailer does not keep goods in stock but instead transfers the customer orders and shipment details to either the manufacturer, another retailer, or a wholesaler, who then ships the goods directly to the customer.
It simply involves purchasing goods at a cheap rate from an online wholesale retailer and then reselling them at a higher price to the consumers. Unlike the normal eCommerce, you won't actually be touching the wares so you won't have to be bothered about losing money from damaged goods. You can get the goods from eCommerce shops like eBay and Amazon.

- Email Marketing

Email marketing is not a new term in the online marketing world but it's seriously losing relevance of recent times. Due to the invention of the mobile apps, push notifications, social media pages, web notifications and other ways of contacting your customers, the email marketing world has stopped booming very well.
However, if you have a blog, website, brand or organization, email marketing will still be a great tool for keeping your customers engaged. With good email marketing software, you can be delivering your products to hundreds and thousands of ready audience in a few seconds.

It's really a hard task predicting a future match and just a fraction out of every 100 people win bets on a regular basis.

You can create a niche market, ie a fashion blog that will focus on a particular product and then create an eCommerce store for it.
