Skill Niche

making use of your skills to make money is one of the cheapest and easiest way to start business. I have already stated 2 skills above in the beauty and skin scare niche which is hair styling for both male and female. here i will mention 2 other skills that can be very lucrative.

  1. Phone repairs/Laptop repair: phone repairs  is a very lucrative skill and you should not look down on it. i have a friend who just bought a camry his source of livelihood is phone repairs. this guys is making money because he is currently building has house. when you get to computer village in lagos, you will see people using this skill as a source of livelihood and some make about 500k monthly doing this. so don’t sit at home while people are making money. you can acquire the skill by working as an apprentice with someone. This market is a never end one as people will continue to buy this gadgets and there will always continue to be problems to be solved. this  problems could be hardware or software.
  2. Web design: we are in the internet age an there a whole lot of companies or small businesses searching for web designers that can take their profile online. There are over 2 billions websites around the and more are been created daily. so if you have a skill in this field, your market is there. you only have to make yourself known to people through advert that you do such work.
  3. social Media managers: above i stated that we are in the internet..yes this is true but also we are mainly in the social media times…the companies who are hoping to get online also need social media managers. You can learn what social media managing is on google search. you can take this as a business. i currently pay a guy 10k monthly for managing our E-commerce company social media handles. and i am not the only one he is doing this service. just imagine he has 7 clients and lets say the all pay him the same 10k, which i doubt because some might be companies. this guy will be making about 70k monthly just by operating twitter, facebook and instagram and linkedin profiles for people. give this a thought. all you need is a phone and internet, which i know you have. do not waste your time on facebook insulting people in comments when you can be online and make money.

  2. Animators: this is very much needed on websites and adverts. animation creators can make close to 100k per job. so you should look into this part.
