List of Jobs You Can Combine With Your ‘9-5’ To Make More Money
With the current economic situation in the country, providing for oneself and family on a salary gotten from a ‘9-5’ job might not really be sufficient and sustainable.
Below are things you can do aside from your 9-5 job in order to get more money.
1. Freelancing on platforms like Fiverr
A means of getting more money apart from your 9-5 job is through freelancing on platforms such as Fiverr.
What is freelancing?
Freelancing is when you use your skills, education, and experience to work with multiple clients and take on various assignments without committing to a single employer. This is mostly done online.
What is Fiverr?
Fiverr is a leading online marketplace that offers services referred to as “gigs.” It’s a platform where freelancers can list and advertise their digital services to buyers all over the world.
2. Open a shop
If you’re a business person, then you can open a shop as a means of getting extra income in addition to your 9-5 job.
Since you will not be available for the most part of the day, you can employ a sales girl or boy to help run the shop while you are at work.
Investing is also another means of getting extra money in addition to your 9-5 job. If you have substantial funds at hand, you can invest in real estate in which you can build shops, houses or halls for rental purposes.
Alternatively, you can get a reliable company to partner with by providing them with funds, then you get your agreed percentage of profit made either on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis.
4. Own a farm
5. Start up a rental service
Nigerians are known to be lovers of Owambes (parties). Hardly will a week go by without people organising one event or the other, be it weddings, birthday parties, burials, and so on.
Rental service is a business that is easily assumed not to be lucrative. But this is not true if you have good clients. Why not give it a shot?
6. Make use of your talents or skill
7. Open a YouTube channel
Another source of extra money is for you to open a YouTube channel where you post relevant content. With time, you can then monetise your channel. Alternatively, you can also earn by being an influencer on various social media platforms.
8. Create a paid course on a skill you know well
If you’re an expert on a particular field or a skill, you can get some extra cash by opening an account on learning platforms such as Udemy, Superprof and others where you will be paid according to the number of people willing to learn such skill.
If you’re a skilled writer or you have a flair for writing, you can write books and get them published then you can sell them on platforms such as Amazon, Kindle, and so on.
Since Nigerians are very keen on social life and parties, you can make cool cash as an event photographer. During weekends, you can get events to cover.
