You can also host Webinars to help people directly. One of the websites we have here in Nigeria is Tutors NG. This website allows users to monetize their knowledge by creating online learning materials for those in a specific field.

They will pay you after you’re done testing the Apps or their website. Some of these companies will reward their users in cash after the App testing.
9. Affiliate Marketing
Back in the day, a friend made a sum of 1.2M from Jumia during the Black Friday sale. This amount is just a day. This is to say that affiliate marking is another big deal. You can make a lot of money through affiliate marketing.
I have received gifts from GearBest and they also pay higher interest as well. Some of the affiliate programs you can join in Nigeria and Jumia and GearBest.
All you need is to pick a product from their website, write a well detailed review, and buried your affiliate link inside. When someone makes a purchase, you’ll get a commission.
It’s pretty simple but required hard work.

Blogging is all about traffic and the more traffic you get the more money you make through monetization. For Vlogging, you can start by creating your own YouTube channel as a platform.
