Dear friend, you’re welcome to the Africa Business Classroom (ABC).

I started my first business before I was a boy of 15. Today I run my company in Lagos and operate in different states of Nigeria.

Make sure you read every word of this post and come back to download my 2 free business books HERE

Let’s start this tutorial.

Do you need some home business ideas in Nigeria?

Starting a business in Nigeria or any part of Africa can be simple (to some extent) if you know how to start a business. Yes, it can be simple if you have mastered the art of creating businesses. Starting a business is an art, the more you do it the more you get better at it.

Equally, starting a business in Nigeria can be so complex. As a matter of situation, it can be as complex as the lines codes that program Google search.

Obviously, the complexity of starting a business is due to some reasons. Few among those reasons may include;

  1. What you should produce.

Choosing or deciding on what to produce can be a problem as there are many options for you to choose from.

Again it can be a problem if you don’t know what you are good at, in other words, you have no clear understanding of where you currently are. Or you don’t have any skill which you can convert into a business. All these steps can make things complex for you when it comes to starting a business.

Above all, lack of knowledge naturally makes things complex and confusing. If you lack the knowledge and skills in business, then you have a problem that must first be addressed. If you lack a good knowledge of what you want to sell or the services you want to render, then you will find things confusing.

  1. Your target market.

Before venturing into any business, one of the most important things to note is your target market or customers. You should know your customers and competitors. Understand every detail about your intending customers as it will help you give them a better product or service.

  1. Where to produce.

Some services can be rendered right from your room, while others services or products will require you to go and open a workshop, warehouse, store etc. Similarly, there are businesses that you can start from your backyard and make millions after some years but the same business will not be successful when taken to the streets. Where to product what you will and should produce can be a complex decision unless you have the knowledge.

For the benefit of this tutorial we are going we are going to be focusing on the last point which is “where to produce”.

There are a lot of places that are right for producing certain products.

In the same way, there are some places where certain services can be or cannot be rendered due some sensitive societal or business related reasons. That is why there are business ideas like “home business ideas in Nigeria”.

Did you get that?

Home business ideas in Nigeria is our lead focus today and so let me start by breaking it into bits.

Follow me closely!

First of all, a home is a place and it can be an answer to “where to produce”.

Equally, we are talking of a bigger place (Nigeria) where the production in a smaller place (home) can be done.

So when I say “home business ideas in Nigeria”, what comes to your mind?

Should we define it? I have no formal definition for it but…

Home business ideas are business ideas that can be used to start a business at home without needing a shop or official building for business activities.

Did you get that?

If you don’t, then just read it again and you will hear me repeating the same thing.

Having understood what home business ideas in Nigeria or anywhere basically mean, you may now want to read this tutorial “business-ideas-in-nigeria-how-to-make-money-with-them” to get a deeper understanding on business ideas in Nigeria generally. It is a tutorial which I strongly recommend that you read.

Before I drive into listing some of those home business ideas in Nigeria, there are three perceptions I would like to address.

These wrong perceptions have left a lot of people in Nigeria confused about home business ideas. Therefore, it is essential for you to get the next face of this tutorial very well, or else the rest of the things I will say will make less or no sense to you at all.

Am going to be correcting these wrong perceptions by telling you the things which home business ideas in Nigeria are not.

So let’s check them out.

  • Home business ideas are NOT always low-cost ideas.

Home business ideas in Nigeria are not always low-cost ideas as you may have believed. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that there are no low-cost business ideas that can start from home. In fact, MOST home business ideas are low cost, but some of them are not.

Generally when people hear “home business ideas in Nigeria”, they think about those businesses that require #5000, #10,000 to start.

Why are people thinking like that?

Two reasons;

First, most people perceive home businesses to be 3 times easier thereby making it cost less money to start than any other form of businesses. While this may be true in few cases, a fact I must let you know is that no business becomes successful with ease and lots of sleep.

It’s always easy to start any business, but making a business successful and profitable requires deliberate effort and well-implemented business strategy.

Secondly, there are hundreds of articles on the internet that make people to misunderstand low-cost business ideas with home business ideas. They tend to make these two topics synonymous, thereby leading to mass confusion in the minds of people.

Surprisingly there are home businesses which may take you #100,000 or more so start! I am talking of a business you can start from your backyard.

So get this first point right. Home business ideas in Nigeria are not all low cost even though most of them are.

  • Home business ideas are NOT always new ideas.

Home business ideas are not completely new ideas. If you are expecting some wired sounding ideas in the name of home business ideas in Nigeria, then you will be missing out.

They can be new if you are hearing them for the first time or if you know less or nothing about business ideas completely. So home business ideas are not comprised of ONLY new ideas but are smart ideas..

  • Home business ideas can be profitable or non-profitable.

A lot of times, the success of a business is highly dependent on the entrepreneur behind the scene. Stephen OloruNi said “successful and profitable businesses where made successful by their owners”.

You can see that no business is naturally profitable and also no business is just unprofitable by default.  When you search the internet looking for some home business ideas in Nigeria, you will find out that a lot of writers and authors are misleading people.

Why did I say that?

Most times they tend to make you believe that they are giving you profitable home business ideas in Nigeria. While nothing is wrong in saying that, but the problem here is that those writers fail to tell you that any business can be unprofitable and vise-versa.

That is because they do don’t know too.

So get this right. For your home business idea to be profitable, adequate planning, study, marketing strategy and other smart measures in business must be taken seriously.

You are not just any businessman or woman.

No you are not dumb.

By seeking the knowledge for home business ideas and business generally, you are a SMART businessman/businesswoman. And because you are smart so should your business be smart enough to make you millions in the long run.

The answer is YES!
