A lot of students believed they cannot take a step into self-development until they graduate.  We want to show you 5 Ways To Earn Money because we are positive that you do not have to have money to make money. All you need is a great idea and a persistent willingness to put that great idea into action. In this article, we will launch you into 5 ways you can make money in the 21st century, even if you’re not yet 16 over 18 or just as every regular student. Note that we have assumed you don’t have a dime to start with! But you have ‘brain’ – full of ideas.
Nowadays many youths especially in our country, Nigeria have come to accept that one cannot make money outside internet scam (yahoo-yahoo), armed robbery, kidnapping, etc. The truth is; money lies waiting out there but you lack the idea and even when you have the know-how, you prefer the “get-rich-quick-method” that never worked! Let’s talk about the subject for today; “5 ways to making money as a student”.

Selling/Sharing Your Experience

It doesn’t matter how young you are. We all have expertise in something, even if that something is simply being ourselves. We’ve all lived unique lives and we all have an important story to tell. Get the word out about your endeavors by writing articles on the subject for your local newspapers/ or even some kind of social clubs in your school. Write about the subject of your business. Write about your own experiences starting a business. Usually small local newspapers are looking for filler content. With just a single publication credit, you will instantly start to become known as an expert at whatever you do. You may even get paid a few bank notes or more for your efforts, though that isn’t the point. The point is to get more free advertising for your business by writing about what you know best – you and all that you are up to.

Technology Training and Consulting

Put that way it sounds so lofty and complex, but it isn’t. As a member of the younger generation, you have natural abilities to work with computers that may seem like nothing but second nature to you but are a hot and valuable commodity to people of older generations who didn’t grow up with all this newfangled technology in their homes. You’d be surprised how many people older than you don’t know how to make a web page (or maybe you wouldn’t be surprised). The point is, even if you can do it in your sleep, there are people who will pay you big bucks to teach them how to do it, or more – do it for them. YouTube, MySpace, Facebook, and all the other social networking and bookmarking sites as well as blogs, newsletters, and ezines are the new media. And guess who the experts are in this new media? That’s right – you are! And as a related bonus tip, you can even offer a free course for small business-people at your local library on the importance of having online presence, and then at the end of the class offer to sell your expertise to build their pages. Give them a discount if they order your services on that day.

Take on Odd Jobs, if any

This is one suggestion that never goes out of style. Random odd jobs like cutting grass, raking leaves, car washing, house cleaning, shoveling show etc. may not be the most exotic, novel, or interesting forms of making money, but they’ve been around forever for a very good reason – because they work. This type of work may not be directly related to your business or business idea, but you can take heart that the entire time you’re toiling away at some seemingly boring task for some extra ducats, what you’re really doing is serving a much higher purpose – raising valuable funds for your business’s success.


Seek sponsors and advertisers for your product or service. For example, sell advertising space on the flyers, postcards, and – yes – websites you put out there to promote your own business. The advertising funds you generate will pay for the production, printing, distribution, etc. of your own promotions, essentially making it free advertising for you!

Enter Competitions, if any

Enter business plan competitions such as Rookie, sponsored by Vanguard Newspaper and Chisco Transport. All sorts of contests and competitions exist for young budding entrepreneurs, and the cash or scholarship prizes you may receive are only half the benefit. The other half is the name recognition you can carry with you into your burgeoning business life as being the chosen winner amongst all the many entrants in such illustrious, business-related competitions.
Remember, all it takes is a little innovation and a willingness to make it work. Problems equal opportunities so be resourceful and creative. Make money by solving problems that exist around you, and before you know it you’ll have solved the problem of being poor and well on the way to your well-deserved riches.
