Passive Income with PhotoSale

Meat Sellers at the start of the Lagos Meat Van era. Ojuelegba, Lagos Nigeria.

It’s not news that there is a dire need for more jobs in this country. Years and years of genuine endeavours amidst floundering efforts by the government has led to the same situation. No Jobs. Scratch that. Too few Jobs.

After all is said and done, perhaps it will be wise for to start taking the bull by the horn. If a white collar job is not forthcoming, perhaps Read More

Power Generator


Saving Small businessses since ojo gbogboro. This power generating set is by far the most ubiquitious unit everywhere in Nigeria. In a country still besotted with electric power issues, survival of small businesses lie somewhere in the heart of this small generating set.

Popularly nick named ‘i better pass my neighbour’, largely because at some point in the past it was the cheapest generator you could buy, and it was pretty expensive. If you had it, the neigbours would come and watch tv in your house. With a full 4L tank, this set will run non stop from between 8 to 10 hours, 12 hours in some super tweaked sets.

Today however, everyone has one. Well, maybe not everyone, but its everywhere and that nickname no longer cuts it. In recent times, there has been a roll out of free prepaid meters and consequently, the power supply in my lucky area has been real good, at least 22 hours of supply a day. Sometimes however, some gas pipelines get blown up and we are again flung into darkness. Thanks to this cute winner, you can still enjoy day long electicity at a petrol cost that is somewhat affordable for small busniesses.

The barber across the street has a very unique specie of this generator. Sputtering and convulsing as if it would soon explode or grind to everlasting halt at any moment in time, this gen set will sometimes work non-stop for 10 straight hours if theres no lull in customer traffic. And if it does grind to a halt, they are quick to open it up, oil it, wax it, blow it, carress it and its back to sputtering goodness.

Say yaaay if you’ve got one of these babies.

Selling Digital Photos – Best Practices


PhotoSale is devoted to making sure you get the best out of your online digital photography business. This is why we would continue to provide guides for you follow. These guides can serve as a manual for your successful business online

What photos can I sell?

We get asked this question a lot of times, and it is just as well that we answer it here. Photographs are the only way to capture and freeze the passing moment. It is also commonly said: A picture is worth a thousand words! So in dealing with the question of what kind of photos you can successfully sell online, we would classify them into different categories. You can hopefully then turn on your creativity and fly with your chosen niche.

Nature Photography

This is one of the easiest niches to shoot as nature is all around you. The photo becomes even more interesting when you can get close ups of unsuspecting animals. Think wall hangings and you’ll get the idea.

Pose Photography

This sort of photography is more specialised. This often needs experienced models and more experienced photographers. It can also sometimes require that the shots be taken in a controlled environment like a studio. Media agencies, web design agencies etc usually require these types of photographs and it can be really lucrative.

Shots of the Moment

This type of photography usually requires some experience, a ready shutter and a quick mind to decide whether a scene is worth the shot or not. These kinds of shots document the everyday life around you. Example of these type of shots could be children running in the street, hawkers peddling wares. These types of shots may also be used by media houses for documentaries and the like. The more natural and authentic your photo is, the higher its probability of selling well.

Selling Strategy.


While we appreciate the need to want to sell your awesome digital photos, it is also good practice to give away some of your photos for free. Yes for free. Customers who have downloaded your photos for free are more likely to buy from you when they see your more awesome photos.


We also often find that vendors are sometimes at a loss as to what prices they should set for their photos. This should serve as a guide. Minimum price acceptable on PhotoSale is N500. Although there is no maximum limit set to your photos, your photos should be reasonably priced. Customers would often prefer to buy a bundle of photos containing 5 or more photos.

We hope that these few tips will help you along in your photography business. If you have any questions or more ideas to share with us, kindly leave them in the comment section below.

The Good Year for Nigerian Startups


Kudos to Nigerian Startups that still make it work despite all odds!

Nigeria startups face the same gamut of issues that startups elsewhere also face. Under-funding, Over funding, Rush to market with half-finished product etc.

Ideas Abound. Implementation however, is a different ball game. I remember a few years ago when i first fell in love with Web Design. It was a new world. Like the gradual opening of a new flower to the warming sunlight. There was something interesting to learn at every turn. It was especially fun because it was my conscious decision to go ahead and learn Web Design. Read More
