Thank you for your response, I really appreciate it. I am a natural writer and I have often been complimented for my writing abilities and people have suggested I start a blog of something of that nature. I do have and have always been interested in Art, Media & Technology: which includes: Interactive and Social Media, Film & Television, Motion Graphics, Animation, Game Design, Advertising, Graphic Arts & Fine Art.

The question is how do I go about these various interests? As a Nigerian given with a first degree in Mass Communication what are the alternatives open to one from here? Thank you for your response in advance.

Actually, I’m a blogger, so the first method I’ll suggest for you is blogging. But it’s not very easy to begin. It requires a lot of patience, hard work and persistence.

There are many ways of earning with your blog which include:

    • Affiliate marketing
    • Selling of products
    • Offering of services
    • Making use of AdNetworks like Adsense, Chitika, Infolinks, Taboola and many other ad networks.

You can also sign up for sites like Valued Voice to start getting sponsored posts alerts from them.

Apart from blogging, other ways of making money include:


Affiliate marketing (you can do that without having a blog)

Creation of websites, blogs and other things

Writing and selling of e-books

and etc.

In all, remember that you must be offering a service!

You have those skills  in you man. You are so gifted and talented. You could start a blog, you could start a video streaming niche site. You could open an online platform for mass communication students all over Nigeria. Where they connect, meet up and learn. You could start a news site.

You really have a lot in you. Remember the key point is “Find a problem people are facing and solve it for them”

Further to Adebisi’s response, recommend freelancing websites such as freelancer.com, upwork.com, guru.com.

We use them a lot to recruit African residents including Nigerians. If you gradually build your profile with good feedback, you can earn steady income and even build a business from there.  Many large businesses have been built from there.

Please note you will be working for international companies so utmost professionalism is recommended to avoid ruining your reviews and earning potential. Anything like no data, or no electricity, please let clients know as soon as possible so it does not spoil the relationship and keeps communications open.

Good luck.

Those sites are highly competitive. They truly work, but the competition is really too high. You could give it a shot. But i have to tell you the truth.
