Online business is oil business!
In this article, I would be talking about 6 online business ideas that can make you 6 figures in 2022 if you are dedicated and consistent.
They are not just online business ideas, they are extremely lucrative, they are also “low cost” businesses you can start today, right away!
Here’s the deal:
You don’t need a list of 50 nor 100 online business to help you make money online. That crap is all over the internet. Those lists are filled with “job like” ideas, but likely won’t give you the financial freedom you truly seek.
What we are discussing here is a small handful of business ideas that are proven to make a lot of money. And that’s what you’re getting today!
Now, you need to understand that these are BUSINESSES you should consider setting up. It should not be a “side hustle” to make a bit of money here and there.
If you want to quit your job and be your own boss, then treat your business like a business. That’s how you’ll make six figures a year.
It is very sacrosanct that before you make up your mind to start any of this, you must focus on two things to suceed
- You need to create something valuable that people would be move to engage in
- You need to market what you’re selling like your life actually depends on it!
Also, there are many things YOU need to do in order to create a successful online business. But, there’s one thing that you absolutely need to have if you want to create a thriving online business, and that thing is a SKILL in something that is in demand.
Without a desirable skill, you don’t have anything people want, and people certainly don’t buy things they don’t want.
Let’s get to the main business
1. Start A Blog Or Website
A blog is something I’ve been doing for a very long time, and trust me, it’s worth the stress and hustles.
It’s at the top of my list because you can make hundreds of thousands of naira yearly, and you don’t have to put in much capital.
Not only that, you can reach anybody online with your blog. These people are all potential customers who can buy what you’re selling, and provide you that financial freedom you’ve always been looking for.
Blogging isn’t new to almost everyone, Maybe you’ve even started a blog already before, and called it quits due to one reason or the other.
The challenge associated with blogging is that most people don’t have a clue on how to run it. They set it up, write some stuff, nobody visits. Then they quit.
Here are some tips on how to run a successful blog / website :
When you’re choosing a blog topic, choose something that people spend money in. Dating, Health, and Wealth are the big 3. People will spend money in these areas when the economy is in the crapper or when the economy is exploding. It’s ever green, and this is where I recommend you go as well.
2. You need to create content that is better than what others are putting out
Remember that you’re not the only one blogging out there. You need to come up with super contents that would make people always attracted to your page. That is what would make you stand out
3. Market your Blog / Website
Spend about half your time producing content and the other half letting other people know about it. This is how you will attract visitors to your website and gain new customers.
- Display ads on your website
Google AdSense will give you a few dollars per click. So the more people you get to your website, the more clicks you’ll get, and the more money you’ll make. It’s as simple as that.
- Sell digital products
You can sell your own products that you’ve created or sell other people’s. Digital products are great because you can charge a lot of money for them. It’s not uncommon to see an ebook for $50+. Delivery of an ebook is quick and simple (don’t have to hold inventory) and once the product is made, it’s made!
2. Offer Online Coaching
Making money coaching people is very lucrative to be honest.
But, it really comes down to how knowledgeable you are, and how well you let the world know about your coaching program.
For you or your brand to be successful, you need a coach or a mentor, if you have the skills, you obviously would go far in this aspect.
If you have a skill that’s in demand, you can help people through and you’d definitely get paid for it
You’ll want to set up a website and offer your service.
The nice thing about coaching is that it isn’t really like blogging, in that you don’t have to do a lot of writing and content marketing.
People all over the world need your help. You just need to show them that you’re the right person to help them.
You can charge hundreds, even thousands of naira for coaching
Overtime, I paid a online business coach to show me how to make my own products and market them. Today, he has grown his business to over 1000 students.
Do the math….
Coaching is extremely lucrative if you have a skill people need.
3. Offer Consulting Services
Consulting service is similar to coaching, actually it’s pretty much the same thing.
The only difference is that you’ll be offering advice instead of mentoring, teaching, and hand holding – things that coaches do.
Create a standard website, then market it to potential clients. Be consistent and don’t quit
You can start with lower fees, give it your all and do it the best way ever…
As your brand grows, you can demand more money and higher quality clients.
When the brand grows further and stronger, try and target people with money (aka big businesses). They have budgets for things like coaching and aren’t afraid to spend it.
4. Learn Web designing
Every business without a website now looks unreliable. Every business that wants to thrive in today’s world needs a website
So that’s where you come in.
If I was to go back to school and do it all over again, i would definitely opt in a degree for a skill like web design.
Because web design is a HIGLY demanded skill. Not only that, people pay thousands of dollars (millions in naira) for a website. You will still go further to get paid to maintain the websites
Look at it this way, business need to showcase who they are online. Most business owners don’t know a thing about making a presence online, marketing their business, or designing a website.
If you had these skills, you could charge a thousand of naira to create the website, and a thousand or more for ongoing maintenance. And if you had online marketing skills, then you’ve hit the holy grail, because you could also charge thousands per month to market someone’s website.
Business have money, and they are the perfect target for a web designer. Imagine 5 businesses paying you 200,000 every month to run their websites. That’s 1 million a month, and over 12million a year.
All while sitting at home in your underwear.
5. Go into Video Creation
Closely tied with web design, you can also create videos for companies. Especially video ads
Companies need videos that clearly explain things like what their business is about, what their product does, or anything else the business wants to tell their customers.
Videos are extremely engaging and easy to consume. They simply work.
You’ve I’m sure landed on many websites that has a video at the top and it starts playing right away. You probably stopped to watch at least a little bit of it to see if it is worth your time.
Well, creating an online business around making these videos for companies can make your wallet very very fat.
6. Information Product Creation
I talked about this slightly towards the Beggining of this piece. Selling Ebooks could be a way to financial freedom for you
They are cheap to produce and cheap to get into the customers hands, less stress
All you should do is create an excellent valuable book that people will pay lots of money for, and market the crap out of it.
You can join a numerous networks that facilitates the transaction of your ebook sales. Or you can create your own shopping cart and sell it right off your website.
But the main thing is this:
Your ebook must be something people are willing to pay money for. You will want to create one of the best books on the subject. You therefore need to be an expert on what you’re talking about.
That is actually the easy part.
The marketing of your book is where the uphill battle starts.
Something you can do is to start a blog and create content around the topics of your book. For example, if you created a book about playing the guitar, then you can make blog posts about the basics of cords, melody, how to buy your first guitar, etc.
People will find your website, read your stuff and see that you actually know what you’re talking about, and see that you have a guitar lesson book for sale.
If they like you, and trust you, they will be a perfect potential customer.
Verily, you’ve have one in mind, get started, get doing..
The online space is the best place to make cool money without needing a lot of money up front.
But you really need to have both the skill and you need to work hard. If you posses none, Sorry to say, but you won’t go anywhere. If this is the case, you’ll need to learn how to work hard and/or learn a useful skill. I hope you’re up for the challenge.
A successful online requires you :
- Creating something valuable that people want, and then marketing the hell out of it. That’s it.
With this, you can make millions of naira with your online business. Just be consistent and work hard
