Hello guys,

How are you doing, today I will be sharing with you four ways I personally use to make money online, this is not based on what I read online from ‘get rich overnight blogs’, this is what I use to generate income daily.

Before I continue, let me be specific on the category of people this is meant for. It is only for those that are ready to work online. It is not some fairy ‘sit, click and earn millions overnight’ tutorial.

So I would advise that if you are looking for such, you can just close this page right away, then continue with your google search. But if you are willing to take this diligently, trust me! This WILL work for you!


Many people today believes that it is not possible to make money online, well, I cannot really blame them because I have been in their shoes and I know exactly how it feels, many have been misled by all these “Get rich overnight bloggers” with sweet mouths that teach what they do not practice., after testing their methods, people tend to realize it is nothing but a lie and they get discouraged and you will realize that all that they need is just need traffic to their websites so that they can make they own money and go, also, they just want to sell their own eBook, can you imagine someone that claims to make millions of naira monthly asking you to purchase an eBook of #1500? So annoying!  Now that is that about that.


Today, I will be sharing this tutorial to you guys for free without paying a dime, and by the way, I am not selling any eBook also (I don’t even have time to create one..too busy), so put your mind at rest and follow this tutorial stepwise, I promise you that your story will also change.

>>One thing I need from you guys is to indicate your interest in this with your comments so that I can be encouraged to finish it up quickly. I will be updating this tutorial right on this post, not below your comments.

So let us start now.

I will be sharing four confirmed methods I have been using for a while to make money online stepwise.

NB: If you have issue with any of the methods stated below, please you the comment box and I will attend to you. You can also send a mail to [email protected] for instant response.

Method 1

Link shortening/shrinking websites

This method has been around for some time but people are not quite aware of this. It is my number one on the list because let me be frank with you, you can continue to make money with this even while you are sleeping, yes doing nothing


What is it about?

A link shortening website is a website application that turns a long website link into a short one.


 Let me give you an example:

Check out this website:, you can say this is a long link, so when you enter this website link into the link shortening website, it will make it very short and can convert it to something like this: which you will agree will me is quite shorter compared to the previous one.

Now, I am sure you must have been wondering, “how can you make money from this?” Continue reading.


Tools needed

(1) Laptop/Mobile phone

(2) Internet connection


How it works, follow this procedure below step wisely and you will not have a problem.


First, you need a blog or website of your own to make this work. I can remember saying that you can make money with this method even without spending a dime, yes!

To get a website may attract some money, for example, you need to buy domain name and subscribe to a hosting, hmmm, just put your mind at rest because I still have you covered.


There is a way you can create a free website/blog of your own free of charge, search this website  to learn this.

It is very important that you select a very good niche that attracts many visitors.

From my personal research over the years, I have been able to come out with the following list of niche that attracts many visitors.


Problems you will face as a new business owner and how to tackle them 


1. Health blogs (especially fitness – how to lose weight)

2. Job vacancies and scholarship blogs

3. How to make money online blogs.

4. Food recipe

5. Entertainment blog

6. Educational information

It is also very important that you select a niche that interests you and have much understanding of.


 Another cogent thing is selecting a good or attractive domain name for your website/blog.

For example:

If you are to come up with a good domain name on health, you may decide to use cogent terms pertaining to what your blog is about e.g “” or “”.

You must ensure that your website domain name is not too long because, sincerely, nobody will have time to be entering something like this: “” that’s kind of long!


Trending Topic: Seven (7) things i wish i knew before starting my own business


Just follow the post to detail.



I am sure by now, you now have a blog of your own, if not, please do as this step is very essential to the next steps.

The next thing is to register on the link shortening websites.

There are so many shortening link websites out there that promise heaven and earth but at the end of the day, they will refuse to do their side of the deal, one of the tricks they use is that after you have work for them and it is time to be paid, then they blacklist you. How do I know this? Because I have been a victim of their cunning acts. I will be sharing with you, four websites that actually pay well which I have tested myself and I am still using:


So what you have to do is register on this website and very soon you will smile while checking your bank account balance.

First website

Second website

Third website

Fourth website



By now you must have registered on those websites above, if no, please go back and do so.

Next thing is that you will have to update your blog with at least 8 to 10 good posts to start earning from it. You have to have a good post that can easily attract visitors to your blog.

Hmmm, at this junction, some of us may be discouraged as we are not good writers, there is a way I will also teach you to bypass this and still make your money.

So for those of you that is good in writing, it is an added advantage for you but let me be frank with you, even if you have a very good post and you don’t have much visitors to your blog, you will not be making up to what you are supposed to be making daily...permit me to even say hour. You stand a chance of making $3 - $10 for every 1000 visitors that visit your link, Imaging having 50000 visitors, for just a single shrinking website, now do the math for four websites.


The payment is sometimes even more than that for example when your visitors are from the US, UK or UAE, you earn as high as $15 for just 1000 visitors, that is interesting, right?

Now I will teach you how to generate traffic to your blog without stress.

Many people just use the social media daily without knowing that for every single click they make, they are generating money for a set of people (you will soon be part of them), social media is an important tool that I will introduce to you to generate traffic to your blog below.


Use any or all of these steps

>>>Create a Facebook page and attract good members to your page to click your links

>>>Search for keywords that are unique to your niche

>>>Make sure you do not spam your page with unnecessary information as this can be very annoying and can easily discourage your fans.

>>>Make sure you always update your post to with pictures that captivate your fans

>>>Post the shrunk link

>>>Join 5-10 groups on Facebook with not less than 50k-100k members.


How to do this without a website or blog of your own?

It is very simple! What do you actually need the blog of website for in the first place? It is to share your shortened links right? You can as well follow the 6 steps outlined above to share your links on social medias and you will still be paid as much as when you will set up a blog.

Now, let me quickly do a simple analysis of all you have just done for you., Let me assume you join 10 Facebook page with 70k members each, and just as little as 4%(just assuming) click your link, that will be 2800 visitors from 1 group, now 2800 x 10. If I am right, it is 28000 visitors! For just a single link, shared on a single social platform, now imagine, joining twitter, etc. hmmm...

Before I forget, you may even have countless shrunk link embedded inside a single post on your blog that people will like to click, that is another view for you!

Added tips:- It is not only your blog post that you can shrink and generate money from, you can shrink and share posts of popular websites or blogs that you know can attract visitors.



You must have been curious about how these shrinking websites generate their own income? Now here is how:

The major work of these link shortening websites is that they help companies to advertise their products. So when you create a blog post and you use the website to shrink the link, you share this links on social platforms, when the visitor clicks the link, an advert will be shown to the visitor and when the visitor reloads the page, it is then that the blog post will now be visible to the visitor.

You will now see that the link shortening websites has advertised a product through your blog and that is why you must be paid for that. Everybody wins!


    Are you still doubting me? This is just ONE of the WAYS THAT I USE TO GENERATE MONEY every second into my account. Why am I sharing this with you? Sincerely, not because I have more than enough but because know what it means to be financially down, I have been there.

If you do not understand any of this procedures, please free to comment below, and when I am online, I will answer you, you can also contact me via [email protected].


Here is the post where I explained this method to detail with examples. Happy shrinking.



Making Money Via YouTube Channel

Just few people even know that for every video you watch on youTube, you are directly making money for some people out there. How? Let me tell you, you must have watched one or two videos from youtube and you will notice that for the first few seconds, what you will see is advertisement before you can skip then you see the real video, Youtube also makes money from people that posts videos on their website by advertising on your video.

First, let me ask you this:

>>Do you have something you can do very well?

>>What can you teach people to do?

>>Do you have a special skill that you will love the world to know about?

>>Can you entertain people?


If any of your answers above is yes, then, welcome onboard.


Most of us have some skills that we don’t even know we can generate money from easily.

Let me quickly tell you this, aside from being a programmer, I am also an instrumentalist…yeah, I play saxophone, Trumpet and I am learning Piano now. Don’t be surprised, I also have a “physical” life outside the internet.

Most of what I know today on musical instruments I learned on youtube because it is free... I love free things and that is why I am teaching you this for free.

I am also sure you have something that you can do and teach people. It is now left for you to think. It can be anything (but please, make sure it is legal!).

Now, how was I able to make money from this? follow the steps below.


Create a youtube channel

A youtube channel is a youtube account that you create in other to post videos on youtube.

You will have to create a youtube channel that is related to what you will love to share. Your username can work for or against you, how?

If your username is short, easy to remember and original, people will definitely remember you, otherwise, it will be very difficult for people to even search you on youtube!

For example, if you are a fashion designer, you may decide to use something like “Unique Fashion” just citing an example anyway, you need to use a keyword related to what your channel is about. Here “fashion is the keyword”


Add content

Now it is time to upload videos of what you do.

For example, here is what I do on my channel, I give people tips and tricks on how to play saxophone, you may be good that telling jokes or creating comedy skits, all you have to do is take a video of yourself doing so and upload for people to watch.



Gain audience

This is the most important step in this method, you have to gain the heart of your audience, and to be sincere with you, you can only get this by uploading do contents that interest people and can keep them coming back for more.

You have to keep uploading content that will get your audience “hooked” to your channel. Let me teach you how to do this.

>>>Upload your video link on social media like Facebook and Twitter.

>>>Increase your youtube revenue with service. allows us to easily create online polls and questions for free. Simply create a question pertaining to your channel and then invite them to answer it. The more people visit your pages you created on, the more you earn

>>>Make sure you always interact with your audience.

>>>Make sure to always reply to their questions.

>>>Create a special channel that users can use to ask questions

>>>Do not ever insult your audience no matter what happens

>>>Use enticing words to lure them to like and subscribe to your channel



Monetize your videos

In other to generate money from your channel, you will need to enable this feature on your channel, it means you are allowing youtube to place ads on your video.

To do this:

>>>After logging in to your youtube account, click “my channel”

>>>Click on the link called “video manager” on the top

>>>Click enable monetization


Meet up with youtube requirements

For you to be able to get approved for youtube payment scheme, you need to meet up with the minimum requirement, that is:

>>You must be 18 years or older

>>You must have at least 4000hours of watch time and 1000 subscribers

To be honest with you, you cannot get this overnight, it takes hard work and consistency, you

have to be diligent and always be focused on your target. Always remember that: it doesn’t matter how bad you started, what really matters is how your story ends.


Set up Google AdSense

This is where you tell Google how you want to be paid into your account.

You need two important things for this

>>A working PayPal or a bank account.

>>A valid email address as well as some other informations so Adsense can verify who you are and who they are sending money to






This has also been a very good source of income for me for the past few months.

Affiliate marketing simply means helping people to advertise their product/services through your website or blog, and you get paid for every product that is purchased through you.

How to go about this


Create a website or blog.

Before you decide to create a blog of your own, you have to stop and think about what you can actually yourself without stress. Another important factor to consider is for you to choose the correct niche to blog about.

From my personal research over the years, I have been able to come out with the following list of niche that attracts many visitors.

Health blogs (especially fitness – how to lose weight)

Job vacancies and scholarship blogs

How to make money online blogs.

Food recipe

Entertainment blog (Celebrity news, music download, etc)

Educational information

Literatures (people love to read stories)


If you don’t have a website, search this website on a post I wrote a detail description on how to create a free blog.


Now I assume you must now have a blog/website of your own. Next thing is to



You can choose from two things, you can either join a merchant affiliate program or register in an affiliate network, such as





Note: you can choose as many programs as you want for beginner, stick to one program first. Find out how it works, after earning from this program, start including other products relevant to your blog niche from other affiliate programs



Before you publish any post on your blog, make sure you research keywords related to your blog niche. For example, if your blog niche is based on wealth/business creation. You can have a post like, “20 lucrative business in Nigeria that yields high profit in Nigeria”.

The keyword in the topic above is lucrative, business, Nigeria and high profit.

Good keywords help people find your pages on search engines easily, so must place your keywords strategically in your content.


This is the final step of this method,


If you have been following this post from the first method I shared with you guys, you must have been how I analyzed how you can easily drive traffic to your blog.

Your affiliate marketing can be useless if no one visits your site. No visitor means no click on your affiliate links. No clicks directly mean no pay. That is why you have to learn how to use social media to promote your blog and get more visitors.





This method might sound funny to you, but trust me, you can make money by snapping and selling pictures.

How can you make money by selling your pictures?

Most of us have what it takes to make money online, but only few can see how to do this, sometimes last year, Mr. president called we Nigerians youths “lazy youths”, I cannot say he is right neither can he say he is wrong, we have what it takes to succeed we are not just informed on how to use it. All that they teach us in the university are nothing but stories and past histories!

Most of us have mobile phones with very high megapixel but what we do with it is only snap and upload on social media.

The best part of this method is that you do not even need special training on doing this, the opportunities are so much and you don’t even a website to get started

As long as you provide images that have good lighting and color, a captivating moment and correct composition, you can always make cool cash. Like anything else, the better equipment you have, and the more experience and knowledge you gather over the years – the better your image will be, and more lucrative this method will be.

I will be sharing 5 websites that I have tested.

  1. 500px Prime
  2. SmugMug Pro
  3. Shutterstock
  4. iStockphoto
  5. Etsy


All you have to do is register on those companies above and upload your pictures, then provide a means for them to pay you for every picture you upload on their websites.

What are you still waiting for? Snap, Upload and make your money.



There are so many methods I use to generate money online, but I am sharing these four because, they are part of the many ways I have personally tested myself. If you can be consistent with any of the methods stated above, I guarantee you that you are on your way to becoming the next millionaire.
