So without wasting your precious time, below are outline of what you will need to start a successful freelance career in Nigeria.

  1. Digital Skill
  2. Smartphone / PC
  3. Time / Stable Internet Connection

Digital skill

Thinking of the best digital skills to start with? There are list of skill you could choose from which are, graphic designs, programming, writing and many others.

For you to be a successful freelancer you have to choose a skill, start working on it and don’t be a jack of all trade. I have learnt some lessons from being a freelancer some year back, what I learnt that you make more money concentrating on a particular skill, but when you try to make money from combining different skill you end up with ZERO.

You can start by writing and am sure you will make huge cash at the end, writing is one of the most lucrative offers. Users also get paid For writing original contents, not copy and paste, don’t want to be a lazy writer.


Write your own contents, if you don’t know how to write one you can check online to join a writing academy for free. I made some extra cash creating websites. So incase you know about programing, you have high chances of making alot from freelance if you are sure of your services. If you don’t really know about programing, you can join online classes, some classes are free while some are paid.


Another factor you have to consider before thinking to start a freelance career in Nigeria. Before even thinking of making money online, you have to get a good smartphone or a PC. In this case, a PC is recommended.

To be a successful freelancer you need to get your self a PC. Tell me, is it possible to program using an android phone? Not possible lol. There are some freelance skills that requires you to get a PC. Assuming you’re a writer, a PC will make your work neat, fast and grammar checked.

You can use extensions like grammarly on PC to correct your spelling and grammars.


I won’t discuss much on this because I know it’s very straight forward and clear. To be a successful freelancer you need to dedicate time for yourself.

You will need time to bid for contracts, designing your profile, delivering the work, and all these works together with stable Internet connection. You can’t archive any of that without a stable Internet connection. To be a successful freelancer you need to dedicate and trust me you will enjoy the return when it’s time.
