Hello there, it’s been a while, anyway I guess we’ve all been busy well let’s get down to business, I will be discussing about Waste Management Business. If you missed any of my previous posts, you can read them from the archives, the last post i created was Plantain Chips Business, you can read it up if you’ve not done that already.

Waste Management Business is basically collecting, transporting and either disposing or processing it. It’s a term that refers to materials produced by human activity and the process is done to reduce the effect of the waste on human health and the environment.

I’m going to be focusing on the waste disposal here and the different means of waste disposal are

Incineration– This is the method in which the waste materials are subjected to combustion (burning) and converting them to gaseous and residue products. This is probably the best way of disposing of waste materials.

Landfill– This method involves burying the waste in a well dug pit, the only problem with this type of method is that a poorly designed or managed landfill can cause a number of environmental impacts like wind-blown litter, attraction of vermin, and production of gas. This gas can create odor problems, kill surface vegetation, but if well-managed and designed all these can be controlled.

Recycling– This method simply means the collection of the waste materials and reusing them examples of commonly reused waste materials include beverage bottles, these materials can be reprocessed into new products.

Energy Recovery– The energy content of waste materials can be used directly by using them as combustion fuel or indirectly by processing them into another type of fuel. Thermal treatment can use waste material as a fuel source for cooking or heating.

That said, to go into a waste management business all you need to do is to choose your method of waste disposal that suits you, get a truck for the waste collection then register homes to collect their wastes and they pay you at the end of the month, you can start from your neighbourhood, this can be a very lucrative business especially if you live in the urban areas as no one in these times likes leaving waste or refuse laying around.

You provide each house registered with you a waste bin for a fee, which is normally kept outside the gate of the house for easy accessibility when you come to collect the waste , note you do not have to do the job yourself you can employ hands to do the collection and disposal for you, yours is just to supervise the job and make sure the waste materials are collected weekly or at the right time you agreed with your customers then at the end of the month when you are paid by your customers you pay your staffs too.

Hi folks, it’s been a while, yes I’ve been a bit busy, i hope you guys have been too with some of these business ideas, well today I’m going to be writing on Plantain Chips Business. If you’ve missed any of my posts please check the archives, my last post was on Online Income Options Part 2.

Plantain chips production is one easy way of money generation in Nigeria, this is because plantain chips is a well-loved snacks here in Nigeria and it requires very little capital to set up, you do not require shops for it and unripe plantain is readily available in Nigeria.

With a start-up capital of less than N20, 000, you can generate income of at least N10, 000/day when you are able to produce 1000 packets of plantain chips on daily basis. The price for a small nylon pack of plantain chips sells for N100 in most cities in Nigeria. So, to start your plantain chips production business In Nigeria, here are the requirements and the steps to follow.

Equipments: A big Frying pan, Plantain cutter or Table Knife, Nylon Sealing Machine, Gas Burner or Kerosene Stove, and a weighing Scale

Production Materials: Unripe plantain( bunch), Vegetable Oil, Table Salt, Sugar, Packaging Nylons and printed Labels

The Production Process: Wash the plantains, then peel and slice them with the cutter or table knife into a bowl of water, this is to stop the plantain from turning brown , after slicing pour everything into a sieve to drain the water and season with salt or sugar depending on what your customers prefer, then deep fry them in the oil until they are golden brown in colour and crunchy, then  allow to cool and package in the nylons after weighing them to your desired quantity and seal them, remember to add your labels with your contact address.

You can now start making money by supplying to shops, schools, neighbours etc. This is a very easy way of making money and I do hope you will make use of it.

Hi peeps, I’m back with the continuation of my teaching on Online Income Options, if you missed the previous post on it please check here,

Online Store: The concept of online shops might be new to you but it’s far from being new –even right here in Nigeria. Presently, there are several thousands of online shops spread all over the internet; some of the most popular ones include: http://www.Amazon.com, http://www.Walmart.com, http://www.eBay.com (eBay is an online auction site), http://www.BarnesandNoble.com , etc. While right here in Nigeria, we have such successful online shops like http://www.ShopforLess.com, http://www.jumia.com, http://www.konga.com, etc. You can go to http://www.shopforless.com right now and check them out.

Most possibly, you do not have enough capital right now to fund the purchase of all the inventory http://www.shopforless.com presently has, however I do assure you – it’s not as important as it seems.let me let you into this secret of a concept called OPM which simply means Other People’s Money. As you must have noticed, you did not see the ‘physical’ items that were for sale on any online shop you must have visited, but the pictures of these items. If that did not ring a bell, let me explain how you can take advantage of OPM and having to display ‘pictures’ on your online shop.

Now, this is how to take the advantage of OPM. Let’s assume you live in Kaduna and you want to own an online shop but you do not own the items (stock) you want to sell. Here’s what you’ll have to do.

First, talk to people who are dealers of the items you’ll want to sell. Reach agreement with them where you will be able to buy the products from them at a good price. With this settled, design your website with all the
items you have for sale listed on them and you’re in business! I’ll advice you to study http://www.shopforless.com and other online shops very well if you will want to for such business.

If you are going to use OPM, I’ll suggest you to make the processes involved in what you do as fast as possible so that you can deliver someone’s purchases to them within 24 hrs to 48 hrs. This is a very cool online business

Information Marketing: This is one of the hottest and easiest online business now in Nigeria, it’s all about looking around you, identifying the problems people have then you set to work to try to get the solution for them, let’s take Unemployment for example, sure you know a lot of people are looking for jobs. So therefore these unemployed people will appreciate anything that will increase their chances of getting a job.

You can now go online and make research on how to easily get a job,  how to prepare for interview, how to dress for the interview and how to write a compelling CV, after gathering all these information, you compile them into an article, guide or eBook and call it “Get That Job Of Your Dreams” or any other catchy title that will attract your audience, so that is your information product you can now create a sales letter which you will distribute to subscribers and sell your information product to them.

You can create information products on various niches like, weight loss, Making Money, Traveling etc just identify a need and get to work on it.

Information products can be in the form of eBook, Video, and Audio

Well that is it for today, this blog is actually not for online business options but small-scale businesses so I will be returning with posts on small-scale businesses that require little or no start-up capital.

I do hope you enjoyed today’s post? If you have any suggestion question or comments please drop them in the comment box below and please remember to share with your friends on twitter and Facebook

These are two opportunities that are much related, and that you can take advantage of simultaneously.

For the web hosting part, you will have to be a reseller of some already existing hosting company – as I guessed you might not already possess enough financial resources to provide servers and adequate power supply to keep the websites you will host online for 24 hrs. There are several online companies offering reseller programs. You can either join one of them or find a host where you can purchase their packages and then be able to sell them for a handsome enough profit.

Right now, there are a number of Nigerian based hosts (who you can pay in Naira) and then resell the hosting at a profit. To make the most profits from reseller hosting, it would be nice if you combined your hosting and designing services together. For information on how to make money designing website and hosting subscribe to my blog on making money online at samiragz.blogspot.com
