I know you might really wish the strike can end so you can resume studies and stop being bored to death at home. I’m supposed to be in final year once the strike ends so I know how it really feels (I school at Uniport).
To keep myself busy during this strike, I multitask a lot – develop websites, blog, do graphics design jobs and develop user interfaces and experiences. These are actually stuffs I’ve always been doing, the strike just gives me more time to improve myself. So without further ado let me get started with the 3 Easy High Paying Tech Jobs You Can Do While ASUU Is On Strike.
1. UX/UI Designing
A UX/UI Designer is a person that designs how and app, website or software would look like and how it would work. UX/UI designer jobs can pay between 50k – 1.2m and the minimum amount is set by you as a designer or by your employer if you aren’t a freelance designer. As a UX/UI designer, you have to understand that it’s not just about designing, It’s about making your prototype usable and straightforward.
You can go through my portfolio and see the kind of jobs I’ve done –
Becoming A UX/UI designer isn’t rocket science but you need to be willing to learn and read a lot.
Make sure to join design communities like Dribbble, Uplabs and Behance.
Softwares you’ll need
- Adobe XD
- Sketch (Mac Only)
Don’t forget to look up some videos on Youtube related to UX/UI. Stay Creative.
2. Digital Marketing
3.Graphic Design Jobs
- Create About 7 Random Logo Designs
- Run An Advert On Facebook and promote the designs
- On the ad mention that you are designing logos for a really low price – maybe N2,500
- Add your whatsapp number to the ad so they can contact you
- Wait for your customers
Here’s the logic here, you promote the ad with around 2k or 3k to make the ad reach more than 10,000 targeted people. Let’s assume 100 people out of the 10,000 people contact you. 2,500 x 100 is equivalent to N250K .
So you earned 250k from an Ad you promoted with around N2500-N4000. These days you work smart not extra hard.
If you can’t use Photoshop or don’t have a laptop, you can buy my Ebook, I mentioned how to design without photoshop skills and also designing on a phone on the device. Cheers
I can teach you more about targeting ads on social media to get more customers, if you are interested – I can send you my E-book with a detailed step by step tutorial on how to do that.
