Looking to make more cash to supplement your pocket money? Well, we have got some very great ideas for you. Gone are the days when you had to wait to get out of school before starting to make money, you can easily start getting the cash while still studying for that degree.
There are numerous exciting money-making opportunities for Ghanaian students online, and we are going to tell you about some of the best in this article.
Not only do students stand the chance to earn money from online jobs, but they also get to build their capacity, acquire new skills and develop themselves.
So here are some jobs you can aim to do when you are not in class taking lectures!
Well, have you considered being the teacher rather than the student? If you are very good at your subjects, perhaps you may want to help out a few of your colleagues that are not exactly up to scratch?
Of course, you can decide to be a philanthropist and do it for free, but there is an opportunity to make some extra cash with your talents. The great news is that you don’t have to leave your hostel to do it. All you have to do is to set up a zoom meeting and invite your students to join in and learn from you.
And if not zoom, you can always use Google Meet or any of the other video calling tools scattered all over the internet. And you don’t have to limit your teachings to your colleagues. You can become an online tutor for students at a lower level or even kids.
If you have a flair for teaching, then you should seriously look into this opportunity.
Affiliate marketing is catching on very quickly in Ghana. If you have a talent for sales, you may want to look into the many opportunities available in this field.
Whether you are trying to make sales for Jumia Ghana or you are looking to bring new customers to online betting sites like Betway Ghana, there are seemingly endless possibilities in the affiliate marketing world.
You don’t need to open up a website to become an affiliate marketer. You can conduct your business through emails or social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram.
Social Media Influencer
Do you spend a lot of time on social media? Do you have lots of followers on Twitter or Instagram? Great. Have you considered converting that time and those followers into some money?
Social media has opened up many online business opportunities, one of which is the social media influencer business. Take time out to build up your following on social media and watch brands come after you with their products.
You can build your followers in many ways. Some influencers gain followers by constantly providing helpful insights and analysis on life and topical issues, some build up their following by creating unique content, while others simply get their followers by jumping on every controversy on social media.
Whichever one works for you; the most important thing is that you have your followers and become a proper influencer!
Social Media Manager
Sticking with the social media theme, you can also help people, companies or brands manage their accounts.
We are not talking about managing social media accounts for top brands; no. While that is not impossible, it would take too much time and would also require a bit more expertise.
We are looking more into one-man businesses and small start-ups that need a bit of help with their PR. Not everybody has the time to post tweets or share Instagram stories, you know? You, on the other hand, have got that time.
And more importantly, you have got the flair.
You can look around for job advertisements on the internet, or if you are aware of any small business that needs some social media help, you can also approach them with your ideas and proposals.
