Despite being the largest economy in Africa and having an ever-growing GDP, Nigeria suffers from persistent double-digit inflation rates that lead to their currency plunging in value. Moreover, the lack of jobs contributes to Nigeria’s striking unemployment rate as high as 23.1% in late 2018 – which was nearly a quarter of the population without jobs!
The good news is that even though there might not be full-time jobs for you out there, you can create your own.
We don’t want your talent to go to waste, so we’ve gathered 30 ways you can make money without having a job.

2. Taking online surveys and watching videos
There are more easy ways than watching videos to make quick money online. On InboxDollars, brands have paid users over $56 million worth of cash rewards to take online surveys, read emails, play video games and watch videos – and offered coupons for grocery stores, or freebies from top brands in exchange.
Besides the money, what you’re doing is meaningful and reciprocal. Your responses on surveys will help big brands better design their products that match your interests, which you – the end-user – will enjoy eventually.
3. Playing trending video games
While other apps pay you for playing small and perhaps repetitive games on your phone, Mistplay actually lets you play cool and famous games for gift cards. Some popular games that they offer include Words With Friends 2, Yahtzee, Clash Royale, Star Wars, etc.
The more games you play, the more you get rewarded. And guess what? Besides Amazon, Starbucks and Google Play gift cards, you can also receive your rewards for Xbox, Nintendo, and PlayStation – time to play even more games!
4. Searching online for your next purchase
You may not believe me, but search engines probably know you better than your closest family members or friends do. Every question you want an answer to, or product you’ve wanted to buy for ages all become a result on a search page – and search engines are willing to pay now to understand these customer behaviors!
On Qmee, whenever you search, some sponsored results with price tags showing you how much you’ll earn by clicking on it will come up. You can click on them to receive rewards immediately, or use Qmee’s coupons and deals available to save on your next shopping spree.
