YouTube also displays ads on your content and you get paid per view.
You too can become a wealthy Nigerian by becoming a vlogger.

3.     Create An Online Platform:

When I say create an online platform, I mean you can create a web-based application, something that can be accessed by the web. See how Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook, a social media platform where users share their stories and information and today he is one of the youngest billionaires in the world.
 There are also Nigerians who have  created online platforms and re rich. We see Seun Osewa, the founder of popular Nigerian online forum Nairaland, it’s a forum where Nigerians share ideas and ask questions,  the forum has gained grounds and today Seun osewa is making money from Nairaland through sponsored listing and adverts.
 There are other online platforms developed and designed by Nigerians which are beginning to be successful, we see online shopping platforms like Jumia, Konga, Jiji.ng and others, many other online platforms are still being developed by Nigerian.
 If you are a coder then I guess, you should be creative enough to think of what people really need and provide a solution to their problem by developing an online platform.
