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.

Don’t believe me? Read on to discover what I mean.How to Make Money Online Without Any Investment with a FREE Blog

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.

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.

These are;

  • Health
  • Fashion
  • Celebrity
  • Education
  • Lifestyle
  • Sports
  • Technology

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.

Important: See the Best Web Hosting Company for New Bloggers

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.

WOW! I am done with that training; let’s fire on to the next point…

Listen carefully! This is, and will be, the best advice you will ever hear if you want to make money online from blogging without any investment.

If you choose a topic that you fully understand and have passion for, you will be able to create original articles without referring to any external source.

Why Original article Important?

If you are just starting your new blog, you may need to make money from it with Google AdSense. For me, I make at least $50 from Google AdSense every day. That’s a good money if you convert it to Naira.

Sure, you might have heard that it’s not easy to get Google AdSense account. Yes! It’s not easy. Google AdSense team need original and well resourced articles before they will approve your account.

So, there is not joke if you are just starting a new blog. You may have to start well with original articles so as to get the approval. After that, you can join the Ikeji’s way of life and do what they do online to increase your income. Don’t worry I will teach you more on this in subsequent training.

    1. @ Celestine Idiong, Lol! This is a very funny question you are asking. The answer is NOBODY. Nobody gets the megabite that you are using to browse the site. The megabite is what enable your computer or device to communicate in the word wide web. The Megabite is just like a petrol in the car. Bloggers make money when visitors buy something or interact with advertisements on their blog.

    1. @ Zion, do you have a blog yet? If no, consider creating one for yourself. You can create a blog for free using blogger. Kindly let me know if you need any assistance in this. Success!


    1. @ Ezekiel, it depends on the nature of the product. If you have a digital product like eBook or software, the buyer will be able to download your product after purchase. You can even decides to send the product to them via email address. But if you dealing with physical goods, you may have to use a delivery services as done by top online stores such Konga and Jumia. hope this helps.

    1. @ Ejoks, so many make money online platforms such as affiliate programs or Google AdSense will send the money directly to the bank account you provided during signup. I will make a separate lesson on this topic to provide more clarifications.

  10. Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge with us for free. pls I have a question. if my product is an ebook, how can I make it downloadable for my buyers. And is there any how I could make them pay for it online b4 downloading it.

    1. @ Keneth, this is a bit difficult for new bloggers for now. But if you have a peer-to-peer Pay Pal account and you are blogging on WordPress, you can use WooCommerce plugin to accomplish that.

      But If you don’t you can arrange with third party online payment platforms such as Quickteller, WebPay, Voque pay etc. They have the functionalities you are looking for.

      Again, if you cannot accomplish any of that, you can resort to sending your ebook via email to your buyers. If the eBook is very valuable, they will still buy it. Success!

  11. you are truly African man thanks sir but sir I have created free blog with WordPress before but I find it difficult to developed it and they only give 15 days free sir what could be the next step for me to take thanks Sir

Sure, you can hire me to do most of the customization got you if you wish. Success!

  13. Its good to hear this but to make it work is what i need because, I never being in your training but i have been in some before in which i gain a little from them.but the problem is that they don’t shear real idea of how to make it.

    so what help can you do for me?
    Sir! i will be glade if you can show me the best way to be the best among the best.

    1. @ Adam, let me know. How do you monetize your blog? Are you using AdSense or are you selling affiliate or your personal product? Before you start a blog, you need to have a real monetization strategy from the first day. If not, you will find it difficult to make money from it. I am here to guide you.

  14. I love dis, cos lyk seriously I knw nothing abt blogging, I have passion for dis topic which is lifestyle, sir u really have to help me.

    1. Okay @ kenny, but when you say lifestyle, I think it’s still very broad. You will need to write on a single topic inside a broader topic which is lifestyle. Sure, I will guide you on this

    1. Sure, you can talk about faith but don’t do copy and paste if you want to make money from it. you can write on “Prayer topic” which is the most highly searched keywords nowadays on the internet. With faith blog, you can make money from selling of daily devotional, eBooks, and advertising. Hope that helps

  15. Hello! Ifiok, Do I have any gain when traffic is generated to my free or puchased blog domain (traffic alone).
    I.e, when people only visit to read alone.

    1. @ Paul, You don’t gain anything when people just read your blog. You will gain something when you sell or recommend affiliate product to them. You can only sell something when you display paid advertising banners. There are many other monetization strategies but not by only reading your blog.

    1. It will be difficult for you to make money from news niche because you will not be able to compete with the bigger boys who are already flooding the whole internet space. I will advice you to create another blog and do the following.
      (1) look for a blogging topic that has a physical product you can sell or promote
      (2) look for topic that have high search in Google
      (3) look for topic that have less competition
      (4) Look for topic that you like and have passion for
      (5) Focus on this topic
      (6) Give your self few years of handwork by developing the blog with original and insightful post and images

      There are no other secretes. Take your time to build audience in your niche. That’s the only way

  16. ok,thanks
    but inside my categories i have something like fashion,tech,educatoin and health and so on which i always post in there.

  17. thanks sir for your good works, but sir how can I attain this lesson, is the lesson still online here or is there any centre for it?

    1. The lessons are available online here. The videos will be available soon. Currently, there is no physical centre for it but we host seminars across the nation. Hope is will come your area soon.

  18. Hi Ifiok, nice work.

    Pls when wil u talk about Advertising both with google, Facebook, Online and all that to boost sales?

    I once used ‘open Ad Nation’ to advertise and didn’t see the effect. Would I have gone for Addynamo?

    Or which would you recommend?

    1. @ Nathaniel, Glad to see you here. Sure, I will talk about advertising very soon but, if you observe, I am now dealing with lots of newbies in internet business.

      So, my teaching style is still in the priming stage. Yeah, I will recommend Google and Facebook advertising anytime because of their top notch high targeting technology.

      It will take other ads network many years to match up with them. I will recommend either Google Adword or Facebook Ads anytime. I have done many advertising campaigns on them and I will publish those lessons in due time. Thanks for coming around here. Great day!

  19. Please I will like to know if I must have a website before I can start blogging. Like I’ve created a topic in Blogger.com but could not continue because it requested for the web add

    1. Sure, there is no coding knowledge needed in blogging. Yes, the lesson are with illustrations and practical examples. So. to get the best of this lesson, you have to practice it and ask questions when you need clarifications. I will guide you. Success!

  20. Thanks for this training.

    I do understand and appreciate your passion as I actually bought UI Post-UTME Past Question from you for my son in July this year.

    MY QUESTION: Is WordPress Blog and Blogger on the same threshold when it comes to Adsence Approval from Google? Or Blogger is better positioned to get approval since it is owned by Google?

    My question is you said in one of your lessons that you started with free blog sites before upgrading to paid blogspot… What is the difference between the paid and the free blog sites. Why would I want to upgrade to the paid ones later when I would be getting the same service free of charge on these free blogspot you thaught us about. Thanks

    1. Yeah, there are values you will derive from a paid service that you can never get with a free service. Again, you may however wish to stand out from the crowed and decides to pay and get something different and more sophisticated. Thanks for your commendation.

  28. sir My Question Is Can Gionee Marathon M5 Android Phone Enable Me Setup A Blog And Do All Necessary Blogging?Because Other Expert Bloggers Do Not Recommend The Use Of Phones For Blogging Instead Laptop&destop Computers.

    1. Yes many people are still blogging with their phones. Most smartphones can do almost everything a laptop can do. After-all that’s why they are smart!
