Start from the neighborhood; tell them about your new business. Another way you can let people know about your business is by making use of social media platforms like facebook and Instragram to get noticed. Book special appointments for home services.

(8)    Sim registration and Data share business:

Do you know you can actually start Telecoms business without money in Nigeria? This sounds ridiculous to many as I said earlier in the previous page,but the truth remains that it’s possible.

Let’s get straight to the point on how to do it.


One way you can start Telecoms business without money is by becoming an agent and that means partnering with the known network providers in Nigeria namely:MTN, Airtel,Glo,And 9mobile, rendering their services to people and getting paid for it. 


 Apply to any of the above mentioned network providers to become a certified SIM card registration agent in your area.

What you will be doing if approved:

  • SIM card registration services
  • SIM upgrade from 3g network to 4g network
  • Welcome back lost/stolen SIM cards
  • SIM swap


Very simple! Here is what you should do

  •  Visit any of the Telecoms network providers office in Nigeria closer to you.
  • find out their office in your location and indicate interest as a SIM card registration agent.
  • Fill carefully the necessary forms and documents they will provide to you.

If your application is approved they will assign you registration kits and I’d to start up your business.

REMEMBER! You are paying nothing for all of this,you are only an agent and they are paying you monthly for your job based on your achievement each month.

The method works for all the 4 network providers mentioned earlier,you can work for all the 4 networks providers at the same time

The commission for each  registered SIM is N100 while for upgrade,swap and welcome back is N150.

  You also collect a service charge of N200 or 100 from each customer you registered,that depends on you.

Now let’s see how much you can make just registering SIM cards

Supposed you succeeded in getting 4 kits from the four network providers and you are able to register at least 2 sim cards each in all the four networks per day,that gives you 60 Sims in thirty days for each network totalling 240 Sims per month,now if you are paid N100 each multiply by 240 Sims that amounts to 100*240=N24000 per month.

Now if you  take N100 as a service charge for each of the 240 sim cards registered you have additional N24,000 making it N48,000 each month just registering SIM cards alone excluding sim swap, upgrade and welcome back.

Remember,it cost you only your time and energy to do this and watch your business grow to the next level.That is as simple as you can start Telecoms business without money in Nigeria.You can add other services gradually and grow your Telecoms business over time.
