In 2007, when I was about to graduate from Polytechnic, a friend opened my eyes to the tremendous opportunities for earning a steady income on the Internet. I really didn’t get it until I picked up a free report from Travis Sago. The report was about making money through affiliate marketing, entitled “The Bum Marketing Method.”
Although it was my first attempt at making money online, I couldn’t make a dime for about seven months, and unlike many startup online marketers, I didn’t give up until I made my first $5 through Google AdSense with my first blog had earned.
Before that time I knew about some Nigerians making money through illegal means also known as “Yahoo-Yahoo”, although I would like to make money like them, I always remember the words of Robert Kiyosaki saying : “If you just want to get rich, find out what everyone is doing and do the opposite.” He also said, “It’s too easy to get rich legally to ever risk going to jail for something illegal .” I also need to protect my name and that of my family.
Later I got my breakthrough when I met some Nigerians who are also in online legal business. Of course I’ve met non-Nigerians who also helped me break through online although I’ve never met them in person, but I’ve read their books and visited their websites a few times. Some of these people are; Ewen Chia, Joel Comm, Robert Kiyosaki, Travis Sago, etc.
Some of the Nigerians also include;
Sunny Obazu-Ojeagbase (PhD) He is the CEO and Founder of the Success Attitude Development Center (SADC), established in 1995 to educate and nurture entrepreneurs whose business success is driven by the fear of God. He is also the editor of Success Digest Extra, a weekly magazine that teaches people how to do things both online and offline. He lives in Lagos, Nigeria.
Another person is Mr. Henry Omenogor, he is a money making expert who focuses on making money by solving tech related problems online and offline. He runs a web design and hosting company and creates websites for Nigerian companies. He is the founder of three thriving companies, Oh My Website, Menog Computers and Prints And Publishing. He is the editor of Start Your Own Business magazine. He also resides in Lagos, Nigeria.
Last but not least is Olusegun Kofoworola, he likes Google Adsense, although as a service provider he specializes in Scriptlance, Getacoder, LimeExchange and eufreelance. He launched his online campaign in 2007 and has been a friend, colleague and inspirational source that keeps me going ever since. He lives in Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria.
Now how many Nigerians make money online? The simple answer is – thousands. The above three are people I have had personal encounters with over the years. They all make their money legally through programs like Google AdSense, affiliate marketing, domain monetization, surveys, copywriting to name a few. These people are good ambassadors of Nigeria and they make their country proud.
