Are you thinking of Investing in Nigeria but don't know where to start from or which business to invest your money into? Here are top 20 most lucrative businesses in Nigeria you can invest your money and be sure of making millions back in no time.

1. Poultry Farming – This business is making average Nigerians rich. It is so lucrative that even outsiders are coming in to invest in poultry farming the business in Nigeria. And why not, In a country of more than 150 million people, what would you expect? If you start with 1,000 birds and manage your poultry farm properly, when the turnover on investment begins to come, you will be making up to N30 million annually.

2. Cassava Production – People are beginning to turn their attention to this aspect of farming in Nigeria that have been neglected for years. Cassava derived foods are some of the most consumed in Nigeria. If you can invest in cultivating 50 – 100 Acre in a fertile area like Ondo State, your harvest will be great.

3. Import Used Cloth – Tokunbo market in Nigeria is very big and many people prefer to buy used items that are high quality than buy fakes.The cost of buying and importing used cloths is low compared to the prices in the market here in Nigeria, guarantying good turn over on investment.

4. Sale of Furniture – Buying and selling of Locally make furniture is a goldmine. You don't need to be a carpenter to do this, just arrange for regular supply from reliable Carpenters while you display and sale in your showroom. It is a very big business in Nigeria as only few can afford the imported designers.

5. Snail Rearing – Snail farming is one of the choice Animal farming for many reasons. It is a low capital investment with high yield and the market is big. There are few people currently doing this – and most of them are doing it in a very low scale. If someone invest heavily in Snail farming, he is sure to make good money in Millions within a year.

6. Rice Farming – Rice remains the most consumed food staple in Nigeria and Billions of dollars goes into importation of this product yearly from China and Thailand because the local farmer are unable to meet up the demand due to poor funding and limited knowledge. Anyone who have a million dollar to invest should get in touch and partner with me with 100% return. $1,000,000 = $2,000,000 guaranteed

7. Making of Fruit Juice – Nigerians drink fruit juice more than any other people. That's why companies like La Carcella and Chivita who came into the country as nobody are today making billions of naira annually. This business in capital intensive but if you can afford it, it's well worth it.

8. Pure Water Production – You know how popular this is in Nigeria and how many that are dispensed daily. Though this business is capital intensive but well worth investing into, especially if you can manage it properly with professionalism.

9. Oil and Gas Business – We are blessed and cursed with huge deposit of oil in our land which presents some of the finest business opportunity for Nigerians and Foreigners over the years. Owning a Petrol Filling Station, Supplying of Diesel, and Distribution of Kerosene are some the areas you can invest easily and make good money for yourself.

10. Haulage Services –  The cost of taking a truck from one place to the other in Nigeria is between N20,000 to N200,000 per trip. Due to poor rail transport system, most of the Nigerian goods are transported through the road, making haulage business in Nigeria a viable one.

11. Hotel Business -This is probably the coolest money making opportunity in Nigeria. Invest in small scale hotel of just 10 suites and watch as the money flows in. This has nothing to do with tourism boom of any kind; there is just something in Nigerians system that make this business very lucrative – Nigerians are jolly people!

12. Fast Food Eatery – Eatery business is another goldmine though poor management can kill it death! If you wish to go into this business, be sure to get everything right and don't forget it's a bit capital intensive and requires good management skills. But if you get everything right, free money is yours.

13. Importation of Tokunbo Spare Parts – If you are in USA, this business is good for you. Don't just keep importing exotic cars, gather tokunbo spare parts in containers and ship down here. There is huge market for it in Nigeria.

14. Investing in Property – Property appreciate everyday in Nigeria. Right now, Nigeria is one the countries in the world where landed property is most expensive. If you buy land now anywhere in Lagos, you are sure to make 100% profit within two years. You can buy and quickly resell and make profit. Or you buy keep and sell later.

15. Dry Cleaning – Professional dry cleaners at affordable prices are scarce in Nigeria. What we have are professional Dry Cleaners whose service fees are extremely high or mediocre dry cleaners who can never keep with time. Give them cloths today and meet it unwashed after one week. This business is a money maker if you balance it up.

16. Professional Car Wash – This business is good if you can set it up in a strategic location in a place like Lagos where there are good number of cars. You.

17. Sales of Building Materials – The rate at which new houses are springing up in Nigeria, you get to wonder why many people still complain of housing problem. Investing in building material is a good business and I can count some guys who are making millions almost daily in this business.

18.Transport Business – What we have in this sector are transport companies that are badly managed by local chiefs and touts. Invest in this business with good management and you will be wondering what hits you with bags of money.

How to Use Google Apps to Improve Your Business

Google has generated plenty of buzz with its cloud-based office suite. Here’s the rundown on its features and how you can use them to upgrade your company.
While cloud computing isn’t exactly a new concept, Google Apps has certainly refined the technology so that businesses everywhere can take advantage of its speed, accessibility and storage. The Google Apps suite, which includes such popular trademarks such as Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Docs, can make the workflow among your employees more fluid, and even provide better methods of interacting with clients and customers. The following guide will highlight the reasons and ways for you to implement Google Apps to improve the operations of your company.
How to Use Google Apps to Improve Your Business: Why Use Google Apps?

One of the immediate benefits that Google Apps for businesses has over traditional desktop software, such as Microsoft Office, is cost-effectiveness. The Google Apps suite includes an unlimited number of user accounts, access to all of Google’s applications, 25 GB of e-mail storage per employee, 24/7 customer support, and a 99.9 percent network uptime guarantee. (There’s also a free version with a limited amount of network security and user accounts, as well as less apps and storage.) Compared to most business and IT software, which often come with a capped number of licenses per purchase (not to mention required external servers to host the system), Google Apps might just be the key to squeezing a couple of extra dimes from your budget.
How to Use Google Apps to Improve Your Business: Streamlining Internal Communication with Gmail

When Gmail first arrived on the scene, the personal e-mail client was lauded for its seemingly bottomless storage capacity and lightning-fast inbox search capabilities. But with the integration of Google Apps, many of Gmail’s functions work just as efficiently for businesses. Again, one of the most beneficial characteristics of Gmail is the cloud factor � since there’s no cumbersome software to worry about, Gmail is accessible to your employees from anywhere, without having to download contacts or messages into devices.
“One of the great things about Gmail is that it’s browser based,” says Wyrick. “We connect through our phones and IMAP clients. It’s that ability to not have to say, ‘here’s your installation of Outlook.'”
Gmail’s threaded conversations also helps to simplify messages among colleagues. For example, if multiple parties are CC’d in an e-mail, or if multiple e-mails have the same subject line, all of those messages are grouped together with each new e-mail sent, sitting perfectly at the top of your inbox and eliminating the hassle of having to check previous messages.
Also, every office environment should have a method for sending quick, by-the-minute messages, and Gmail’s answer is Google Chat, which is built directly into the interface of the inbox. “We’ve really reduced the need for our internal telephony system,” says Wyrick about Raidious’ use of the messenger. The chat feature also has a video conferencing component that can be useful when colleagues and employees need to correspond from remote locations.
While Gmail is a great e-mail client, Wyrick recommends assigning multiple account administrators for your shared business account. “Once you’re signed up, you never want to have all your eggs in one basket,” he says. “Some day you’re going to need to do something when that administrator isn’t available.”

How to Use Google Apps to Improve Your Business: Syncing Meetings and Events through Google Calendar

Depending on your type of business, scheduling appointments can be a real headache. A few employees (or, only one) are usually responsible for tracking and relaying dates and times, a method that is conducive to slip-ups and missed meetings. With Google Calendar, multiple employees can post events on a single calendar that the entire company can access and edit accordingly. Additionally, these calendars can be color-coded so that the viewer is made aware of changes to appointments. Administrators can also set permissions to calendars, so that only certain employees can see or edit items.
Greg Cross, founder of Cross Creative, a Greenfield, Indiana-based digital marketing company, says he recently encouraged one of his major clients to adopt Google Calendar to help sort and protect appointments. “[He] owns a counseling center, and he came to me and said, ‘We’ve got four counselors and we’re looking for a way that our clients can schedule appointments online and keep them private,'” says Cross. “You can set it so that it won’t show that you’re having a counseling session with ‘John Doe’ on depression.”
Another useful feature of Google Calendar is the ability to create events through Gmail. When you add an employee’s e-mail address to an event on the calendar, the employee is sent an invitation to confirm his or her attendance. After confirming, each employee can view and add notes to the event.

Google Docs is an application that allows multiple users to create and edit documents, presentations and spreadsheets � all on the Web. Usually, coworkers share documents by e-mailing attachments to one another, which often results in incorrect file versions and scattered, misplaced copies. With Google Docs, the file is edited in the cloud, where revisions are saved and recovered automatically.
Like most of the other Google Apps, administrators can set permissions in Google Docs so that only certain workers are allowed to view and share files. Another convenient feature is the ability to export the documents into different types of file extensions, which can be helpful in those times when a client or customer needs a PDF file ASAP.
“I use Google Docs internally,” says Cross. “I have a graphic designer that works only part time, so I post estimates and client proposals there.” Using Google Docs to edit other common files such as itineraries, newsletters and articles can help resolve common issues that arise among employees when collaborating on projects.
As useful as Google Docs has been to many business owners, Wyrick of Raidious says that one thing to keep in mind is the fact that the people on your staff will have varying degrees of computer skills. So, if and when you do implement Google Docs for creating and editing your most important files, Wyrick says, it maybe helpful to designate a project champion who understands the application.
“There might be some users that will be less excited about the changes,” says Wyrick. He also advises newcomers to frequent the help guide on the Google Apps site.

How to Use Google Apps to Improve Your Business: Sharing Company Knowledge with Google Sites
Google Sites is a basic site-building tool that companies can use to create a private intranet hub of information for employees, or even a public domain that serves as the face of your business. Google Sites allows you to import information from other apps, such as your appointment calendar or standard client forms, and post it to your site for employees or customers to have easy access to.
“Google Sites is like a wiki system,” says Hayes, who uses the application so that he and his business partner in Denmark can keep track of company projects, ideas and contractors. “I have sections set up for competitors’ ideas we want to improve, and even problems we want to fix within our business.”
You can designate only certain employees to have administrative capabilities, i.e. editing and posting site information, or grant access to your entire team (especially if you’re operating with a tightly-knit staff).

How to Use Google Apps to Run Your Business: Finding Additional Resources in the Google Apps Marketplace
If the applications made exclusively by Google don’t fulfill all of your needs, don’t forget to check out the Google Apps Marketplace, where you can find plenty of third-party apps � some for free � which serve a variety of functions and integrate with the other standard apps. Intuit Online Payroll, for example, enables you to pay employees directly from Google Calendar and provide them online access to paystubs. Zoho CRM is a customer relationship management tool that helps improve client interaction in a number of ways, such as tracking and sorting e-mail conversations.
To augment Google Calendar’s capabilities, Greg Cross of Cross Creative uses, an app that allows members to publish public schedules, accept appointment requests and reduce double-bookings. “It really helps mainstream my workflow,” says Cross. “When the person confirms the appointment, it goes on my [Google] calendar, and I’m alerted on my phone. So between the collaboration of those two features, it works great for me.”
According to Cross, Google Apps for businesses is quickly becoming a necessity and less of a neat product to try. The interoperability of the apps, along with the accessibility of the cloud, he says, provide many people the opportunity to leverage office technology efficiently for the first time. “It will be interesting to see how other software companies survive going forward, because Web-based apps are more than just a fad,” says Cross. “It’s not the ‘wave of the future’ � it’s right now.”
