In today’s training, you will learn how the internet works and how people make money from it.

Internet, in simple terms is a communication platform between computers. Information is hosted in separate computers and is accessible to other computers in the well programmed network called the World Wide Web (WWW).


Everything that goes on within the World Wide Web is referred to as “Online”. So, if you say – “How can I make money online”, you are basically referring to how you can make money from the internet or Word Wide Web.

Often times, people use these three word’s interchangeably without violating any rule of disambiguation. So, you are free to call it “Internet”, Word Wide Web, or Online.
The internet can be liken to large open market in your community. Every community has a market. The market is so large that it has no boundaries.

People interact with one another, they share ideas, sell products or provide services. Many people browse the internet for materials used in assignment, term paper or research. Others use internet to make money either from selling products or providing paid services.

How do People make money from the internet?

That’s a question you need answers to. Like I earlier said, internet is a very large market without boundaries. It therefore means that you can make money from the internet by selling something online, providing services online.

You can sell your own product online. You can also provide services to others online and get paid for it. If you don’t have your own product, you can still sell another people’s product and earn a commission.

For instance, I make nothing less than NGN20,000 commission every month from and


So, what do you do to make Money Online?

If the internet is a large market, you may have to own a shop, store or a tent. This is where people will meet you to become your customer or client. In a general setting, your Facebook Page, Website or Blog becomes your store, shop or tent.

A website or a blog is where people come to meet you to request for a product or services. Your website or blog then becomes your shop inside the large market (internet).
If your website or blog is very popular, people can come there to advertise their products or services. This becomes another source of internet income for you.
