10 Ways To Get Paid in Dollars While Working in Nigeria
There is so much concern for Nigerians in terms of employment and job opportunities. Due to the striking unemployment rate and the unstable economy, the naira value keeps depreciating day by day, and Nigerians now seek ways to work more so as to earn more money. Many who don’t have a full-time job have involved themselves in part-time jobs (majorly online) and they earn payments in dollars, from Nigeria. This is possible because they discovered some strategies, some of which we will be sharing in this article.
- Bitcoin: Bitcoin is the most common and valuable form of cryptocurrency all over the world. Cryptocurrencies are decentralized digital assets, they are unaffected by the economy and can be instantly traded. You can obtain Bitcoin through various methods like trading gift cards, PayPal, etc. With bitcoin, you can make cool cash in dollars after trading. However, to start trading Bitcoin, you must get yourself familiar with Blockchain, because it is the technology that runs Bitcoin and every other cryptocurrency, if you do not familiarize yourself with Blockchain, you might end up making mistakes and lose your income, but if on the other hand, you got familiar, be sure to make lots of dollars. another option to earn on cryptocurrency is investing in stablecoins which track the price of US dollars, investing in stable funds will help you earn interest
- Teaching online: this is one of the easiest ways to make cool dollars in Nigeria. With English as our official language, there are countries that have English rather as their second language, and this is where the gist comes in. Since you are fluent in English, you might want to earn some money for your fluency by teaching those who are not as fluent as you are and earn money. It’s as simple as that. Sites like Teacheron give you the opportunity as a potential teacher to meet potential students and teach them English language. Once you register, you get the chance to set up your own convenient teaching time and you can teach wherever you are. Everything is done online and you work according to your convenient schedule.
- Translation: you can also earn unending dollars from translation. Let me first say that learning any foreign language is not an easy task, so if you are so privileged to know one or two fluently, you have done a great job and we both know you don’t want that great job to become a waste, which is why I want to inform you that you can earn by translating. Freelance websites like Translatorcafe will connect you with thousands of job postings in search of translators, interpreters, copywriters, and many more. Project can vary, while some projects may be done online, some might require an in-person presence. Furthermore, projects vary across different topics like law, sport, education etc., so like I mentioned earlier, if you have a foreign language knowledge or you are studying a foreign language in school, this is a chance for you to explore your field, flex your muscles and make cool dollars.
4. Freelancing: sites like Upwork, Fiverr, Freelancer are one of the most popular places to get freelance postings. There are varieties of freelance works available ranging from copyrighting to digital marketing to video editing. If you are good in digital marketing, organizations might be in need of your service with the aim to build their online presence and if you are into copywriting, you could find writing gigs, sales copy, product description for blogs and the likes that will only take you few hours to finish, and if you are into video editing, be sure to get patronage as many startups are looking for freelancers to create motion graphics, how-to videos and the likes, so your chances might be just around the corner.
5. Taking on-demand tasks: big companies around the world usually pay for market research and this is mainly because they understand the impact it could have on their business which is why they pay certain amount to people who are willing to take up on-demand research for them. They pay through apps like BeMyEye. The tasks usually take about five to ten minutes depending, and they pay between three to twelve dollars per task ( it varies). So think of how much you would make per research and multiply it by how many research you are willing to make. It’s sure no bad start.

6. Transcription: there is so much chance for you if you can pay rapt attention to video clips and transcribe.

You transcribe for their easy understanding and you get your pay. You have an advantage if you are fluent in any foreign languages ( considering that English transcription might be competitive, since it’s more of a world language). But note that you must pay attention to every details while transcribing including punctuations and most especially your grammar. Sites like Transcribeme offers freelance where you can transcribe 2-4 minutes videos in any language you are fluent in and earn fifteen to twenty five dollars per hour.
