More than  sixty percent of the top ten richest people in the world are thriving business people on the Internet and ICT. Both spheres no doubt are the most lucrative business platforms for close to two decades. People around the world have made a fortune from these platforms. 

Of all the internet businesses, Vlogging is one of the over looked platforms. Attention is more on blogging than Vlogging, whereas vlogging is easier and some young folks are taking advantage of it and are making the fortune of their lives.

One of such young individual is Jackie Aina, an African-American with Yoruba-Nigerian descent. She had carved a niche for herself in the beauty industry leveraging on Vlogging. She’s worth a good fortune Vlogging.

She’s the foremost make-up artist Vlogger and has become a celebrity; she’s well known with it. She’s a highly sought after Vlogger by companies; the public (both America and around the world) believe so much in her beauty product reviews.

A point in case was when the Kardeshians  sisters launched their beauty product line (KKW Beauty) this year. Jackie Aina did a review of some of their products and she had over a million views in less than 24 hours on Youtube. That’s a lot of money, converting the traffic to money. Click here to view her Youtube channel. 

Though there are other Vlogger, aside Jackie, even in Nigeria, but there are a handful of them in this space.

Vlogging, on like Blogging still has more opportunities and its easier, as compared to Blogging, where one has to research, think and write good English. In Vlogging, all you need do is find an interesting  niche and just talk about it from different angles on video. Open a Youtube channel (which is free ) and start posting.

Be good at it and build a community that will believe in what you do and will be loyal to you by inviting their world to view your channel.  Build your content to meet up with Youtube/Google criteria and the money will start rolling in; the more views you get, the more money you make.

Businesses will pay you to do a review of their product on your channel and you’ll be celebrated as more people get to know about you.  The more people that come to know your channel, the more money you make and the more gifts you get. 

There are countless areas to Vlog-  fashion, food, skin care, drinks, automobile, phones….. just name it. It could be on something you love that has a good market demand and you’re good to go.  

Remember, employment is not only when you get hired to receive salary at the end of the month. You can create employment for yourself Vlogging and even hire others to join you as the demand for your expertise increases.
You might be saying, “I don’t have what it takes to do a video”, but you can learn. Almost everyone doing business or making money on the internet at some point were novices.  You can do it, just make up your mind.

Think about this and act!
