Are you having any difficulty in generating side hustle ideas? Is it tiring you to come up with lucrative side hustle ideas in Nigeria?
In this post, you will learn how to come up with lucrative side hustle ideas without beating yourself to the bone. Let’s go:
Everywhere you go, there are side hustle ideas around you. Most of them are lucrative, and people will willingly exchange their money for them. Nigerians will pay for anything that they perceive it’s valuable to them. If your product or service delivers good value to people, you will go home with plenty of money. No jokes.
A side hustle is not a job; it is a hustle that fetches you money on the side with little to no effort. Not a thing that stresses you. Not a job that burns you out. So, don’t think you are creating another job for yourself by having a side hustle in Nigeria. Some side hustle ideas do require that you use leverage as much as possible. Use it anywhere you can.
I will first be focusing on how to generate offline side hustle ideas and move to online ones afterwards.
When you study people’s patterns everywhere you go: how they live, how they communicate, how they move from one place to the other, how they play, how they relax, how they organize things, you will discover so many things in studying the pattern.
When you discover what they need–if it’s already in existence and it’s within their reach, you can look for means of improving on the available solutions.
People do so many things daily. They buy products and pay for services they use. People repair their gadgets when it’s faulty. People hire tutors for their kids to pass exams. People clean their homes. People communicate daily with other people. People fall ill and seek medical attention wherever they can get it from. People do their laundry. People love to find cool places to relax after the day job. People shop for groceries. To sum it all: people want to have a stress-free life.
Many of these people might be willing to pay good money for help with these things. It doesn’t matter if you don’t deliver the service yourself. You can hire people to handle the tasks for you.
In cities, providing errand services for busy working-class people will fetch you a good income if you are able to have a sizeable number of clients.
City and traffic are siamese twins. People get stuck in traffic every day. They come home late in the night when the day is already gone. Most of the people who work in busy cities don’t usually have weekends. The few ones who do have many activities lined up for them. So, they need help to carry out some tasks and they will pay for this.
You may be wondering the kinds of errands you can run for these people. And if you are confused, I will present you with some ideas: You may offer laundry pick up and delivery service. They may need help to do groceries shopping. You can also be helping them to shop at the supermarkets. You can help them to take the delivery of the orders on their behalf and deliver them when they are around. Busy people love businesses and people who make life easy for them.
Furthermore, some of them need afterschool service care for their kids till when they are back from work. Afterschool care service takes care of all the needs of kids till their parents are back from their daily jobs. The needs like feeding, changing of clothes, bathing and doing of assignments.
Definitely, some side hustle ideas require more resources to start than others. You can go with the ones you have the capacity to get off the ground with not much sweat.
As the generation of offline side hustle ideas requires you to work around, online ideas don’t need physical movement. You need a browser, Internet-enabled device like a smartphone, computer, tablet, and Internet connection to begin.
So, how does one generate ideas online you may ask? You begin by Google searching any idea that comes to your mind to see their potential.
You can also do Google keyword research to discover the words people are searching for on Google. If you discover fine ones, you tailor your ideas to meet their needs.
If you have a particular online marketable skill, you can begin with that by looking for people who need the service. Let’s say you are a graphic designer. You have a good eye for design. You can create eye-catching visuals. You can reach out to business owners on the Internet who may want to design advert fliers, brochures for their products. Same for all online side hustle ideas. Anyone can begin by simply reaching out to potential customers.
