I don’t believe in the saying that you “have to spend money before you get money”. No! You can actually make money (even more) without investing a dime.
Let me tell you something… You can make as much as $100 everyday online without investing anything.
Yes! I know you may not have the money to buy a custom domain for now.
I know you may not have enough money to pay someone to create a website or blog for you for now.
I also know that you may not have money to pay for any online advertisement.
These are ways people spend money when they create a blog or website.
But the good news is that you can actually make money online without any investment.
What I mean is that, you can make money online without paying any money. You don’t have to pay for anything.
Yes! So many successful bloggers have done that before here in Nigeria and elsewhere.
A typical example is Linda Ikeji, the owner of lindaikeji . blogspot . com. Let me tell you something! She has not bought a “PIN” to develop this blog. Everything on this blog is “FREE”. Absolutely FREE!
The domain name is FREE. The theme is FREE, the articles are FREE. Everything there is FREE! But she is the most popular blogger in Africa for now. Her blog makes money more than any other blog in Africa. Yes! I mean it.
Another blogs that were started completely free are Allgist . blogspot . com and KevinDjakpor .blogspot .com. Both of them were later upgraded to a custom domain blogs but still with FREE Hosting. Sure, they are spending a token of $15 or less to renew the domain name every year while they make $300+ everyday only from Google AdSense. These are big blogs but they were started FREE without any investment of any sort.
Yes, that’s the fact. In 2012, I created my first free blog on WordPress . com. I actually used that free blog to learn blogging. It might interest you to know that I first sold my information product on that free blog before migrating to paid version.
So, it’s not necessary that you spend money before you make money. You too can make money online without any investment. All you need is correct knowledge on how to start.

How to Choose a Good Topic to Blog on
Before you even think of starting a free blog, give yourself sometime to think about the topic you want to blog on. This is called blogging niche. It’s not all the topic that is profitable. Here, I am going to suggest few profitable blogging topics for you.
There are various sub-topics under those topics mentioned above that are still uncompetitive. So, you can make it fast if you explore more on these topics.
Also, they are other hidden profitable blogging topics that are still not written on yet. I will deal with this issue on another training session.
So, how do you choose a good topic to blog on?
The best way to choose a good blogging topic is through the use of your common senses. Watch out for these four cardinal features;
- Look for topic(s) that have lots of searches in Google
- Look for topic(s) that have physical products you can promote or sell
- Look for topic(s) that have less competition
- Look for topic (s) that you fully understand, love and can write original articles on them
If you can put all these into consideration, you will be able to come up with a killer blogging topic idea. This will become your blogging niche.
Ability to choose a good blogging niche determines your success rate.
