How To Find Hot Information Products You Can Easily Publish And Sell In Nigeria For Profit

If you are looking to quit your day job for good and start an online business then the best option is to make your own information products. So how to make money selling information products online?

Information Marketing is one of the easiest means of making quick money either on the Internet or off the Internet. Many acclaimed Internet Marketers allover the world have taken advantage of it to make money for themselves, some even created wealth through the business.

Just as the name goes, Information Marketing is the act of providing useful information to information seekers with the aim of helping them solve their problems and making money in return.

The internet has become the fastest medium for getting information of just about anything, and millions of people are turning to it everyday to get information. If you have any useful information about anything these people are looking for, you can market it to them and make money - millions of money!


==> If you are newbie to internet marketing and you are looking to sell your own products you must first find a niche that people are willing to spend there money on that will help them cure there problem they have. Problems such as how to make more money, health and fitness and dating. Theses are the top three niches but there are many, many more niches a newbie could venture in to.

S==> Do plenty of research on the niche you have chosen and then create an eBook, downloadable video or even a membership site that gives advice on how to help people cure there problems. This will be your information product that will make you an income online.

==> Create your own website or blog. Start sending tons of traffic to your site. A lot of newbie's find generating traffic to there site's one of the hardest thing to do when starting up there online business. Once you have learnt the skills the traffic will start to flood in. TRAFFIC + CONVERSIONS = SALES

==> Join sites such as ClickBank and get affiliate driving traffic to your sites. You will have to pay the affiliates a percentage of each sale but the amount of traffic generated will be massive. Maybe you don't want to share your profits with other people but every internet marketer knows that to be a success you will need help from affiliates. Remember TRAFFIC + CONVERSIONS = SALES

Let's put it this way - Everyday, five hundred thousand people are looking for information through Google on the internet about how to lose weight, if you have any useful information on how anyone can lose weight and package it in eBook, DVD, Audio, or other formats. These people are willing and ready to buy it from you at any reasonable price.

If you sell to just 1,000 persons at N2,000 each, you'll make 2000x1000 =N2,000,000 and you can achieve this in no time if you are good with the business. So the question is not whether there is money in information marketing business, the real question should be "How to get it right"?

How To Make Money From What People Need In Nigeria

Here are some search terms that Nigerians use to hunt for business ideas online.
==> Top business opportunities in Nigeria
==> Best business ideas for 2014
==> Small business ideas in Nigeria 2014
==> Small scale business Ideas In Nigeria
==> Top 10 Business ideas in nigeria
==> Top 10 small business ideas
==> best online business ideas
==> creative business idea
==> top small scale business ideas in Nigeria
==> List of small scale business ideas
==> List of best business ideas
==> profitable business ideas for Nigerians
==> free business opportunities in Nigeria

If you want to run a successful business empire, you can do so as long as you can keep providing what people want. This is because people will always want something. Human wants are simply unlimited and that can keep you in business if you make the smart move.

To avoid confusion, I suggest you narrow your choice of business down to
==> Would you like to go into manufacturing or production of goods?
==> Would you prefer to go into trading (buying & selling)?
==> Would you like to offer services?

What do people want?
You need to have a good record of what people want within your market. How do you get to know what the market wants before providing it? Most people tend to enter the market quite late after there is already a huge competition but if you can get into the market early by providing the resources, you stand in a better position to make the most money.

Let me instances of how to understand what people want and successful businesses that are providing them:
==> People want to be able to go to a bank without queueing. Now this keeps ATMs in business
==> People in Northern Nigeria probably need more water than the south due to the intense heat. Now this can keep water providers in business
==> Students in higher institutions need past questions. This keeps photocopiers with past questions in business
==> A lot of young people want to gain university admission. This keeps tutorial centres and private universities in business
==> The world is getting hotter. This keeps Cooling businesses like Iced blocks, A/C, freezer and Solar product providers in business
==> There is a higher population of unmarried people now in Nigeria than ever before. Now this keeps sites like Facebook relevant and is an big opportunity for dating agencies to startup in Nigeria

What to do to make money from opportunities
==> You need to be quick to identify them so as to make to most money and even dominate the market
==> You can also get into an already crowded market and still succeed by adding your own style or brand to it

Just identify what people within your circle are seeking for or need, be able to provide it and you will make a lot of money if you add a bit of mathematics and economics to it

How Are Business Ideas Protected? My Intellectual Property Protection Ways

HOW DO I PROTECT MY BUSINESS IDEA?

The most valuable resource in the world is not found in the ground, as gold, diamonds, and oil; it is, and will always be ideas in the minds of people, when harnessed properly. Some of the most valuable companies, in the world today, like Alibaba (China), Facebook (USA), Google (USA), are less than 15 years old, and yet each one of them is worth much more than some of the biggest resource companies like Anglo American (SA), BHP (Australia), which were built over 100 years.

Companies like Apple, Alibaba, Google, and Facebook, are not built on natural resources, but harnessed ideas, better known as innovations. The amount of cash held by the top four tech companies, like Apple, Google, and Samsung, is more than all the economies of Africa, as well as all the economies of Latin America.

I believe that each one of us, has the capacity to come up with "witty inventions", which can dramatically improve the lives of millions, whilst at the same time creating wealth for our nations.
You might have an idea, for something completely new, or you might have an idea to improve something that exists, or you are working and have an idea to improve a process, or solutions that can make your organisation more profitable, or efficient.

Many people do not know what to do when they have an idea, particularly one with which to start, even a new business. And this is what I want to talk about, in this post:
The first thing, you must have is respect for ideas, and to value ideas.

In business when an idea has been harnessed properly, we call it, Intellectual Property (IP). Never steal or misuse other people's ideas, particularly when they are protected by patents, and Trade Marks, Copy writes, or Trade Secrets, measures.

When you have an idea, which you think is a new innovation, or even invention, don't go around telling everyone you meet (including your friends), this is like leaving your wallet on a bar counter, to go to the toilet!

Discretion, discretion, discretion....!!!

Some people prepare detailed, documents and send them to third parties, whom they think can help them. If you do that you will end in tears, and you probably don't deserve any sympathy!

So what do you do, if you have a new innovation, or business idea?

The first thing to remember is that, you are not the first person to have a new idea, even if your idea is the first of its kind. So there are well set out, and well established procedures, for the protection of inventions, and business ideas. It is your job, to find out, these things, if you want to become a serious business person, that will become a regional or continental player, and one day even global.

One of the most important things you do when you set up any business, is to get to know a good lawyer, and to build a relationship with that lawyer. You do not get a lawyer, because you are in trouble with the law, or in a dispute.

Most of the work of lawyers, in businesses has nothing to do with disputes, and courts. So, if you are in business, go find a lawyer today; tell them you are not in any trouble, but you need them because you are planning to grow into a serious business, one day. This is wise counsel.

If you are a business person, and you do not count a lawyer among your friends, then you are not yet ready for the big time. When your business is small, you can also find lawyers, who are also just starting out. Or even young lawyers who are happy to give you advice in the evenings. Develop a habit of always running, what you are planning to do past a lawyer friend.

When it comes to the protection of ideas, most commercial lawyers, will be able to tell you what to do, and many of the standard agreements, that you need to have can even be obtained Online. It is not a complicated area of the law and even a young lawyer, will be able to help you.

When we sit down to discuss with banks, and investors, or even potential partners, the first thing we do is to exchange agreements, that protect both sides, from theft of ideas, by the other party. I will never, ever, discuss anything with anyone, that I am planning to do, with whom, I do not have such agreements, in place: I know the value of my ideas!
The first thing is to be discrete. If you are working with others, then you must all sign agreements, in which you agree not to take the idea, to other people, outside your circle, without consent of all the partners, in the project. If you find someone resisting such a proposal, then they probably have other ideas, on your ideas, and you have to be wary.

Always investigate to see if someone else, has already done it, and if they have a patent to protect the idea, including copyrights. In today's world of the Internet, this kind of information can be readily obtained Online.

Quite often you will find that someone else has been working on something, don't just copy it, but approach them to see how you can work with them, for your own market. To simply take, their idea, and proceed to execute it, is at best theft,and could land you in hot water. A modern business today, no matter how small, should always be structured in a way, that enables it to be constantly innovative. I do not mind saying this; in our organisation, the fastest way to get my personal attention is to show that you are entrepreneurial and innovative.

One of the great mysteries in the world of discoveries, and inventions, is that every great idea, has more than one person working on it, even if they do not even know about each other. So, if you have an idea, don't waste time! If you foolishly tell others, what you are planning, and then later find someone has implemented it, never say it was stolen, you gave it away!

Calculate The Cost Of Starting A Business

poultry farming business egg in crates
The cost of that business refers to financial and human resources that is utilized in the successful start up and management of business. A common mistake made by entrepreneurs is getting carried away the sweet prospects of returns that comes from starting big.

Moving past one city recently, my attention was caught by the number of people who have embarked on huge housing projects, that they were struggling to finish. You are left wondering why they did not go for something smaller, that they could finish.Sadly, I often meet people who are in the same situation with their business projects. My heart always pains when I see this, because I imagine what they are going through. When people start out in business, they are sometimes so excited about what they are going to achieve, that they forget "to sit down and CALCULATE the cost". Sustainable success in business or even in a social enterprise is as much about managing, your cost as it is about generating sales or revenue.

"I will sell my 10000 kgs of cocumber for #100/kg, and make #1,000,000. Its a lot of money."But what about the "cost side"? "sit down calculatethe cost", "Once I buy the bus, I will make 5000 per day"But what about the "cost side"? "sit down", "calculate the cost", "I will borrow money and buy an aero plane. I will fly people everyday, and make $100,000" 

Really, now? "sit down", "Calculate the cost". The one who "calculates" does a deeper exercise than the one who simply "counts". Another way, of saying "calculate", is to say "manage the cost". When you do not "calculate" the cost properly, you might even manage to buy the bus, or the aero plane, or the telecoms equipment, and you will then operate it, until it is old and battered and obsolete, unable to renew or replace it. Always, "calculate", the cost FIRST. Now, you might say, what if something happens, that I did not anticipate. Maybe, it was beyond my control? By calculating cost, you are more prepared for unexpected circumstances. You absorb the shock better and move on more eaasily.

Here is an example of how we calculate the cost using a taxi cab business:

==> we need to cost the price of the taxi;
==> we need to cost how we are going to buy it. If we borrow money, what interest will we pay? Can we afford it?
==> when do we have to repay the whole loan?
==> what is the cost per month of the driver, and his conductor?
==> cost of fuel, and maintenance and repairs.
==> cost of parking it.
==> how long can our taxi last on these rough roads. What is the expected life.
==> as it gets older and more battered, repairs and maintenance increase.
==> what will it cost to replace?
==> what will it cost to buy more taxis?
==> what about insurance, including accident, public safety.

Now we can look, at how these costs, will align with how much we expect to make:
==> what is the amount we expect realistically every day, from taxi passengers:
==> let's go and count passengers at all times of the day for the next 30 days.
==> let's ride on the routes, we expect our taxi to follow.
==> let's talk to experienced hands, about what they have observed. What are the pitfalls.

Finally, let me say this, the cost, goes beyond what it initially costs, to set up the business; to run it profitably; ensure renewal and growth, and sustainability but you must also look at the cost on things like the environment, public safety, and the health of others. Calculating cost, is all about managing a dynamic cost environment.

Yes that business idea may be superb but have you assessed your purse and other capacities? Do you have what it takes to start and finish that project or business until it can start generating enough to sustain itself? Slowly systematically, methodically, we build our business case, using numbers, checking, analyzing and we never stop, each day, we do it, over and over, and over! Don't cut your coat according to your size but according to your cloth.

Top 18 Web Internet Based Business Ideas With Low Capital Investment

The truth is that most low-cost business ideas will be based online because that’s where start-up costs tend to be lower. This is an extremely broad category and my list here really won’t do all the possibilities justice.



1. Earn Cash From Blogging
Starting a blog isn’t as hard as you think. All you need is hosting and a domain. To make money online from a blog you need to gain large amounts of traffic from a specific niche. See how I do it here. You can earn cash using:

AdSense
Selling banner advertisements
Affiliating to sites such as Amazon & eBay
Offer premium services or member areas

2. Affiliate Marketing Internet Business
An Internet affiliate program and affiliate marketing networks can be used to market goods and services online. Some Internet affiliate programs offer two ways to make money online - by selling products or services as an Internet affiliate and by signing up other people to join the same Internet affiliate program. Just about any home business with a website could conceivably profit by placing affiliate ads on their sites, but there are also many who pursue affiliate marketing as a full-time Internet business in and of itself.

3. eBooks Marketing Internet Business
E-books have become a very common commodity on the Internet. You can download ebooks from many different websites and you can even visit an eBookstore to find a variety of eBook publishing gems for sale. If you have an Internet business or if your are thinking of starting one, you may want to consider creating and selling informational eBooks on your website. EBooks are generally shorter and easier to create than a traditional printed book, and there are many websites that do nothing but promote and sell eBooks. As you get more skilled at it, you could offer eBook promotion services to others and, of course, sell eBooks about how to market eBooks. It's kind of a self-fulfilling Internet business that can constantly fuel itself.

4. Internet Marketing Services
Helping people drive traffic to their website can provide you with an excellent Internet business. The methods, and thus the services you might offer as part of your business, vary widely and include: Search Engine Optimization (SEO) services, Pay-per-Click (PPC) advertising services, blog marketing services, article marketing services, and many others. You might decide to specialize in just a few areas or provide a full range of Internet marketing services - to a global clientele, or only to a niche market. And, all the training you need is available online and cost far less than the few college courses available in these specialites

5. Professional consulting and services. 
This opportunity is for all those who have already worked in the corporate world and/or have already done the necessary training and certification to advise and otherwise serve people on legal, business, financial, technical, health-related, etc matters. The Internet could allow you to go it on your own as an independent consultant or offer some kind of niche consulting. Either way, make sure you clearly display your credentials and certification on your website and other web-based profiles. Just keep in mind here, that depending on your field there may be A LOT of competition. So be prepared to define how you are different from the rest of the pack and work your connections.

6. Nonprofessional Consulting. 
This is also a very broad category. Do you know a thing or two about setting up an online store or internet marketing? Do you have some really good talent, skill, or experience that would be beneficial to others? You may be able to monetize it and generate a decent income.

7. Online Tutoring. 
Whether you do private tutoring or work with an online tutoring service, such as tutor.com, you could make a business of helping others learn. The average income is about $25 to $30 an hour, but it will vary depending on the subject and the set up.

8. Online Instruction. 
You could create a series of webinars, instructional videos, or how-to articles and charge for access and/or make money from advertising.

9. Computer/Electronic Device Repair. 
As long as there will be computers and other devices, there will be a market for those needing to repair them. This includes not only physical repair but operating system fixes, such as when a virus attacks a computer. It made it to this part of the list because many things can be done remotely. There is also a whole market for those looking for instruction on how to repair their equipment themselves.

10. Content Creation. 
Whether you are producing content for yourself or as a ghost writer on a blog or website or on a contractual basis for clients, if your content is quality you can do well. This is also a crowded field, but there are enough customers and readers to still carve out a niche for yourself. Keep in mind that by content, I’m not just referring to written content. This includes video, audio files, and images. You could charge directly for the content or earn from any advertising next to it.

11. Content Editing and Enhancement. 
This means improving on others’ work. It includes editing text, images, videos, or presentations. Basic text and video editors can make around $30 an hour, but the field is a competitive one.

12. Conduct Research. 
This includes market research or other online research, compiling resource lists or building a directory of sites on a a particular subject or industry.

13. Web-Based Design. 
You could offer logo designs, website designing, and other non-internet, based materials, such a posters, brochures, business cards, and t-shirts. Designers can try to stick it out on their own, create a small online “agency” with other designers, or try their luck on freelance sites and web design market places, such as Designcrowd.

14. Travel Planning and Travel Blogging. 
If you’ve got a travel bug or enjoy planning other people’s trips, but don’t want to fork over money for travel agent certification, then this may be the opportunity for you. You have several different possibilities including, referring customers to travel booking sites where you receive a portion of the commission, travel blogging, and trip planning.

15. Virtual Assistant. 
The demand for qualified VA’s have definitely grown in recent years. While that means there is a lot of competition, there are also some decent opportunities as well. There are many niches you could put yourself in and different people and organizations will always need different skill sets and personalities. Earning potential varies a lot and will really depend on your experience, your skills, and whether you are working on your own or as part of an organization.

16. Manage social media profiles
Social media is an important part of any online business. The problem? Time! Most business owners simply don’t have the time to be involved with Twitter, LinkedIn, Face Book and other sites, in a pro-active way. That is where you can help. If you can engage clients and build up attractive social media profiles, then you will be able to attract clients, which makes this a service with value. Again, these projects are posted on freelance sites such as People Per Hour and Elance on a regular basis, so you can start building up clients straight away! Check out these amazing statistics for LinkedIn!

17. Create valuable resources
The sites that hold the most value on the web hold the most valuable content. Face Book holds information about what hundreds of millions of users. YouTube possess millions of funny, educational and controversial videos. If you can create a website that focuses on offering valuable resources, then you just might be onto a winner. Remember, you can offer the freemium model mentioned previously if there is no scope to achieve high advertising revenue. You could even be teaching others how to make money online, while doing exactly the same thing for yourself!

18. Internet Marketing. 
This is another huge area that includes affiliate marketing, direct marketing, and various reseller structures. Mobile marketing in particular is also a hot area right now. Basically, if you enjoy sales or you’re just really good at it, then it may be an area to look in to. There’s a lot of competition, but plenty of people are making good money via Internet marketing. If, however, you don’t enjoy sales, then stay away.

Sharing Is A Nice Way Of Helping Us. Someone Somewhere Needs This Too. SHARE
