4 Practical Ways To Make Money Online in 2020

Understand that you are making money online by using the internet to reach people who are interested in something, a product or service you provide and they will pay you.

Online aka the internet is simply the medium.

So, below is my list of 4 Legitimate and Effective Ways You Can Use to Make Money Online in 2020.

Read through each part carefully and choose the one that fits you.

MMO MODEL 1: Freelancing/Consulting

This is where you provide skilled tasks to businesses and entrepreneurs.

Online Freelancing is probably the best way you can use to start making money online without any capital.

That is because all you are doing is helping our businesses and individuals with certain tasks like:

  • Article writing
  • Social media posting
  • Audio/video transcribe
  • Translations
  • Graphics design
  • Web design
  • Voice over
  • Etc

All you need is a skill in a particular area or subject - graphic design, social media marketing, copywriting, sales.

And you can quickly learn many of these skills.

Business owners buy these services like clockwork.

All you have to do is to go to one of the online marketplaces where you can get these jobs.

The most popular one is known as ​Fiverr.com

Fiverr is the world's largest online freelance services marketplace that connects businesses with online freelancers.

Don't let the $5 jobs fool you, it's merely a starting point.

People charge as much as $10,000 to do jobs there.

Then we have others like - www.99designs.com and www.UpWork.com

On these sites, you can sell skills ranging from graphic design to writing, to social media marketing to copywriting to programming to sales, etc.

It's incredible what you can do on these sites. Check them out.

By the way, if this is what you want to do, my advice is that you get the guidance and training from someone who has been doing this for some time.

The best program about online freelancing that I can vouch for right now is this one called ​Better than Fiverr.
The guy who created the program has hundreds of positive testimonials from students.

MMO MODEL 2: Affiliate Marketing

You might have heard this term before.

That is because affiliate marketing is an industry valued at over $300 US Billion

Affiliate marketing is an income model where you make money by selling someone else's product for a commission.

Basically, you get a link that recognizes you brought the visitor and when they buy, you get a cut which can be anything from 5% to as high as 90%.

It is a really effective way for complete newbies to make good money online.

The main thing is to get sales for the product you are promoting and you get paid a commission for it.

Let me quickly tell you how I used this to make N25,000 recently.

What I did was to go to an affiliate platform known as expertnaire.com.

Maybe you have heard that name before.

It has been around since 2018.

So, I picked a product on 72IG Implementation Program, grabbed my affiliate link for that product, and went ahead to post the affiliate link on social media along with a small blurb using automated marketing.

3 days later, I checked my emails and I saw an email from Expertnaire.

The email congratulated me that I had just made N20,000 commission from selling that product.

This is the email I got.

This is exactly what is meant by getting paid a commission per product sale.

Here, I got paid 50% (which is N20,000) for selling this product.

There are many people making as much as N100k a week with this model by posting their affiliate links on their Whatsapp status, FB pages, Instagram pages etc

And you can even take it a step further by running paid adverts.

Anyway, If you are interested in this business model, you can get started simply by going to Expertnaire to sign up as an affiliate.

MMO Model 3: Information Publishing

Information publishing is a business model where you publish and market information on a topic that people are looking to learn/master.

You can publish step by step guides/courses on virtually any topic as long as people have an interest in it and are ready to pay for it.

The topics can be on money, relationships, business, travel, education, health, food, jobs, etc.

It's a really neat way to make money.

One of my businesses does this and it's extremely profitable with incredible margins.

You can deliver the information products digitally or physically or in person.

Information publishing is a really big business.

There are 3 major steps to it.

  1. Start by deciding on a topic that people will buy.
  2. Package or Create the information into a product.
  3. Create a System to market the information product.


You can also sell information in various formats:

 - You can sell it as a simple ebook in PDF format

 - You can sell it as a video

- You can sell it as a full blowncourse

- You can sell it as an audio

- You can sell it as a webinar, seminar or Teleseminar,

- You can sell it as coaching

- You can sell it as a membership content

If this is what you like, you should look at Jonathan Melody’s IBM program

Jonathan was able to create a N30m a year income from creating and selling information products online.

MMO Model 4 - Importation/Ecommerce

E-commerce is all about 3 things:

  1. Searching for physical products that solve problems for people or helps them get closer to their desires.You can source these products here in Nigeria or import them.
  2. Buying the products at the lowest cost possible, importing them to Nigeria.
  3. And using a genius marketing method to sell them for a good ROI.

If you are going to run with this business model, make sure you do not run it like a lot of people.

Run it as a proper business.

Start with a huge and profitable audience/market. E.g. Fitness, babies (Moms), Women's fashion, Skin care

Look for challenges people have in that market.

Find products on Aliexpress that solve those challenges - In fact, you will even come across many products on Aliexpress that fix challenges you do not know about.

Buy the products for the lowest cost you can find (You may have to use an agent or other sites for this)

E.g. Some products that sell for N$2 a piece can be gotten from 1688.com for far lesser

Create a marketing system that allows you to pull in people who are interested in the type of products you are importing. You can advertise using Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Google, Blogs

Sell to them

Sell to them repeatedly

If you decide to take this to another level, you might even create a brand name and find companies that can help you create products with your brand name printed on them

But you don't have to start with that.

You can start importing with at least N50,000 or even lower.

"However the most important factor is for you to ONLY import products that people really want to buy."

Personally, I don't import products until I have advertised it and gotten proof that it is a product that will sell.

That is when I go ahead to buy it.

Ecommerce requires a capital of at least N50,000 to get it started.

If you want to go with this online model, please get any of these E-commerce training.

All the 4 make money online models I shared in this short report can be executed by the average Nigerian.

If you have zero money, zero connections but have skills or are willing to learn one, then do freelancing/consulting.

If you have access to some very helpful information that people will be willing to pay for, then you should consider getting into Information Publishing.

If you simply want to promote products without dealing with customers, Affiliate marketing is the way to go.

If you're not the writing type or you want to sell something you can touch,E-commerce is great.
