10 Businesses You Can Do To Earn Atleast 50k Per Month As An Undergraduate by Tmonex:
11:30pm On Nov 01, 2015

Hello to you from makemoneygeek, I hope you have been following my posts keenly, I have been busy
this week getting some small SME managers to feature on this blog. My plan is to feature a very
successful man in the pop corn business residing in Uyo and another great man in Oyo state to speak to
us on how to start the fish farming business. The interviews should be ready for publishing on this blog
around mid Nov. So stay in touch with makemoneygeek if you are interested in those two business.

Meanwhile in this post, I shall be introducing tp you 10 businesses even normal undergraduates can do
while still in school. Each of them will require some form of capital but each of this business, if practiced
in University ,monotechnics and polytechnics are always very successful and usually bring in high yield
income.

So Let us go through this 10 great ways you can be making steady income as an undergraduate with
having to depend too much on your parents

PHOTOCOPY/PRINTING
These are two services that go together and is very much demanded for in school areas. In a school of
more than 30,000 students and different lecturers in many different locations, you are sure to be
successful if you set up in a good location a photocopy and printing shop where you can offer help to
those who needs this services. Many students and lecturers ] use printing and photocopy services
regularly so be sure of making your sales daily.The major capital required for this business will be the
procurement of the materials for the photocopy an printing machines.

POP CORN BUSINESS

I have seen people who are successful in this business and that is why I am adding it to the list. You can
start packaging pop corns into sealed nylons while putting your labels into it. From there you can liaise
with supermarkets and shops around you to be supplying them your pop corns at cheaper prices. You
can make research on how you can add special taste and effects to your pop corn to make people
patronize it more for quality.

BULK SMS

I have been a player in this business since my year 2 in the University and I have had no regrets ever
since I started this business in my school area. When I started, my target was to get as many
churches,fellowships,departments organization and sect to signup under my bulk sms website. I made
good money from political campaigns during SUG elections in my school and some other fellowship who
uses my website for bulk sms. This business is a very lucrative one and you are sure to make steady
income if you go into it as and undergraduate

BLOGGING/ARTICLE

I have talked about setting a blog several times on this website, If you are able to monetize your blog
with good contents you will surely get paid good money by google. I know of a top blogger in my school
who got his ride via blogging returns even before reaching his 4th year in the University.

MERCHANDISE

Every time, people have events regularly in school areas, they usually request the services of a good
cloth designer to make merchandise and jerseys for them . If you go into this business as an
undergraduate, you will be making not more less than 50k monthly as a costume manager.
BROWSING DATA Sales

Another nice income generating business to do as an undergraduate is to venture into sales of browsing
data for fellow students and lecturers especially. You just need to familiarize your self with as many
lecturers who you know uses a good amount of data monthly. If you are a data re seller , you can be
supplying data to mostly lecturers and students whom you have made contact with and be making your
own cool cash daily.

PHONE REPAIR

If you know how to tackle phone problems both hardware and software. Why not setup your self into this
n= business by repair phones for people and fixing little issues you can handle. If you set up this
business very well, you can be ,making tangible income from phone repairing business

IMPORT EXPORT/sales
Doing the business of selling imported items is one of the most lucrative method of earning stable
income as an undergraduate. You can be shipping cheap and fancy items form china and selling them at
prices that will make you reasonable profit

Training/tutorials

You can be organizing tutorials and software training for interested students in your schools and make
cool cash from it. Just find a good location and a partner that can join you in training people to have the
knowledge of useful software in their respective courses of study.

Graphics and draftman

Doing graphics has been one of the sweetest my that happened to me as an undergraduate , even for a
small DP picture for birthdays, I will charge nothing less that 1k for the design. You can learn graphics
and venture into offering small services like banner designers, dp pictures and making flyers for small
organizations in your school

BARBING SALOONS AND MAKE UP

Many guys whom i know as friends knew how to barb but only few up them st up a shop in school for
barbing for people. It is a very lucrative income generating business while in school barbecues you will
have so many students patronizing you as a student barber. Imagine you had just 30 people who visit
your saloon to cut hairs daily.that is over 5k dailyIn a month you will be earning twice what a bank
marketer earns in a month,, am I lying? You can calculate it yourself too

I hope you have learnt on or two things from this post.

It is now up to you to decide which one of this above listed businesses to do as an undergraduate and
start making stable income for yourself. Gather some capital and making some researches on things
needed to start each of this business, find a good location in your school or even in your hostel, start
small and expand till you finally grow big.

Happy New Month

Business in school is all about time.


Like me now I'm offering 10 courses I've not talk of Practicals o.

I spend at least 8 hours in Lab how do u expect me to run a smooth and clean business

BTW my 1st Year outta the 20K they do send to me, I'll remove like 1,970 for selling of credits most
people in my hostel patronise me TBH there's no gain in the business. Moreover My roommates would
take d card and use it, Promise to pay for it but they wouldn't.

If you wanna do business in school look at your time schedule, your department or Faculty.

All this listed business needs time u can expect me who spend 8 hours in Lab to venture into pop corn or
photocopy business.. I would fail gallantly ni o

All this kind business are for those in Law or Religious studies where they don't do much.

But I'll like to Venture into Tutorial class business for JAMBITE and post Jambite.

Guys I'm freaking serious.. There's this business you can do with 20K instead of 50K

STEP 1 : Raise 20K outta your pocket money.

STEP 2 : Go to any good Electronic Shop or Show room.

STEP 3 : Buy a table fridge or Freezer of 20 Kg or above.


Depends on d stacks with you.

STEP 4 : Take it to your room, Beg any supplier of pure water to supply you at least 10-20 bag per week.

STEP 5 : Beg a supplier of bread to supply you at least 20-30 bread per 3 days. Not more than 50-60
Naira bread oh!

STEP 6 : Buy Kuli-Kuli, Groundnut, Sugar, Eggs, Garri ( put it in nylon, make it 20 Naira own)

STEP 7: Announce your new business to your hostel mates. Especially guys in particular.

At least in a week u will earn up to 2K if no one cheats you.

It doesn't require time as your roommates can help u look after it, The buyer will drop the money in a
box and take what they need.

These business will work in OAU very well or UNILAG, UNIBEN, UNILORIN

If you're in UNILORIN and u want a business of 10K

Start an agent work, help fresher's to get hostel.

And put your own change on it

If these business works don't forget to pay your Tithes

Subjective article
You can't just postulate their minimum earnings without taking other factors into consideration.
Besides, where are your statistics to support these earnings if I choose to be pedantic?

Truth is some will make more or far below the listed. Better you start out something innovative, a niche,
than trying to fight already overpopulated market sectors.

Nice write up but you forgot to mention Facebook and instagram. I generate a lot of money from Sales of
my products ( Watches, male/female bags, shoes, shirts/tshirt like polo shirt/tshit, Lee valley, La coste,
Tummy, checks and American Eagle), wallets, etc. Some of these items I ordered them from Ali express,
konga and kaymu while some came directly from Dubai.

I intend going into the printing business this semester..

I have a friend who does it and it yields some dough..


It'd be in the confines of my room in the school hostel and my patronizers will mainly be my hostel
mates and friends...

Wish me luck

[b]HOW TO START LAUNDRY AND DRY CLEANER BUSINESS IN YOUR LOCATION


Laundry business is a small scale business that can be established at the back of your house and
requires small capital to establish one. This is a business that can fetch the owner of the business a lot of
money in short period of time.
When establishing a laundry business, the most importance material is availability of clean water.
Although water is very cheap here in Nigeria.
Materials needed to start the business
12kg washing machine
7.5kv generating plant
Dryer
Two pressing iron; steaming iron and ordinary iron
Two tables; one for washing and the other for ironing
Shelve
One standing industrial fan
1kg spraying can
Tagging gun
Buckets, brush, hangers, laundry nylon.

Dryer is used for urgent service and in the next thirty minutes the cloth is dry and ready for ironing.
Steaming iron is used to iron plain trousers and suits while the ordinary is used to iron other types of
fabrics
Spraying can is used by filling with water and spray on cloth when ironing for easy smoothing.
Tagging gun is also used for tagging identities to the customers clothes for easy identification.
The most importance service of the laundry business is good ironing and packaging. Someone can wash
clothes with 100% stains free but ironing maybe 0% or packaging 0%. How will the customers feel
happy or sad?
With #300k one can establish one and before a year of operation, he would have recover more than
amount invested in the business.
Thanks[/b]

Exactly my thought. Its very time consuming. I think blogging and pop corn business should top d list of
time consumers.

However it depends on the individual.

Some students have photographic memory and some can cram very well. While some are just there to
have d name 'graduate'.
Time shouldn't pose a threat to them all.
