Money; everyone is talking about it. We are constantly looking for new sources of income to better our lives and that of those we love. If you have been searching for either a main or side hustle, you are in the right place.

The good news is that if you have a working smartphone, or better yet, a laptop that functions well, you have 80% of what you need for all of the options in this document.

Here are some of the best ways to make genuine money online and in Lagos state.


Affiliate marketing is a goldmine if you do it right. A lot of companies are forever looking for new customers and are ready to pay handsomely for people that can help them do that. With affiliate marketing, the aim is to help companies sell products and at handsome cuts on each sale. That may not sound great to you until you actually realize how much you can make. Say you market a product on your social media account and from that post that cost you zero naira to make, five people buy, if your cut is 500 naira, you’ve made 2500 from a single post in one single day. Imagine using other channels to market. In fact, it gets better, if you market products for companies based in America, you can earn up to $5 commission per product or even much more. Affiliate marketing is a goldmine.


Freelancing is one of the best ways to make money if you already have a skill at hand. For example, if you are into graphic designing and are good at it, you can offer your services to people based in other countries with great currency strength. It is also easy to find such people. All you need to do is have a valid form of identification and register on any of the many freelancing sites available. I recommend Fiverr, Upwork, and Guru. This is not to say that other websites are not good. However, these are the sites that I have used personally.


Digital marketing is the last on our list because it is one of the most lucrative and most people who get into it no longer use it as a side hustle but as the main hustle. The best way to define digital marketing is to imagine the marketing of products done through popular digital channels. People are always on their phones and technological devices. Hence, one of the best ways to get to people and advertise your products and services is via digital devices.

In simple terms, digital marketing is simply the use of the internet and other associated technologies to promote goods and services to the target audience for a specific product.

As a digital marketer, you can market your product or other people’s. In actual fact, digital marketing is very broad. It has several branches which include SEO, affiliate marketing, social media marketing, content marketing, etc.

One of the best reasons that digital marketing is epic is primarily because of the fact that digital marketers are always being requested. At any given point of the day, thousands or even millions of companies are trying to figure out how to sell to more people. If you are able to actually connect to customers for these companies, you have gotten yourself a very nice way to make money. However, the thing about digital marketing is that having knowledge of customers, sellers, and even marketing isn’t enough. You need to have knowledge of the digital world. Digital marketers make very high sums even in Nigeria. However, those who work for Nigerian companies do not earn as much as those who work for countries with stronger currencies.

The best way to get into digital marketing is to learn it from professionals. Put in effort and time to get digital marketing training in Lagos for the best results. Making money the right way is really possible. All you need is dedication and hard work.
