How can you make money online with 1000 naira, he asked?

That question was asked by one curious student who attended our digital marketing training course in the past. He wanted to know if he can start an online business with a thousand naira (₦1000).

Let me throw the question back to you…

Do you think it is possible to start a business online with just a thousand naira?

You’re probably pondering and thinking your heads out, right?



Well, before I started Digital Marketing Skill Institute, I teamed up with my flatmate to start an online hotel booking business and I lost my savings to a digital marketing firm that drove little or no results for the online business.

I became bankrupt and frustrated that I took matters into my own hands and decided to learn digital marketing. I became obsessed and so passionate about digital marketing as I began to drive quality traffic, convert that traffic to customers and engage prospects and customers into new, returning and referral sales.

It was then that I realised digital marketing could help all types of businesses grow quickly if only the right digital marketing strategy is implemented and for that reason, Digital Marketing Skill Institute was founded to help businesses succeed using proven digital marketing strategy that works.

Through a relentless ambition and focus on the ultimate goal to make businesses succeed online using digital marketing channels and strategies.

I now have a brilliant team of experts in Nigeria with experience working with various clients both within Nigeria and internationally.

OK, that’s enough about me. I will answer that question above.

After so many years helping businesses succeed online, understanding what works and what doesn’t, I have come to the conclusion that… You can you make money online with ₦1000 naira. I’m sure the next question is…

How can I achieve that?

How can you make money online with 1000 naira?

In some of my old posts, I shared with you multiple online money making opportunities in Nigeria. You should open that link to explore the opportunities I’ve mentioned there.

Perhaps, wouldn’t it be nice to earn ₦10,000 to ₦20,000 daily with affiliate marketing?

Yes.. that compounds to over 600,000 monthly.

The best thing is that you can start marketing other people’s product as an affiliate within minutes and it only needs as low as ₦1,000 to start and then a daily profit of ₦10,000 to ₦20,000.

That’s basically using ₦1,000 to start the affiliate marketing business and earning ₦10,000 to ₦20,000 daily as profit.

Isn’t that cool?

I’m sure maybe at a start, ₦1,000 to start an affiliate business may sound very impossible.

But once you start banking profits, I’m sure you won’t ask for my account number.

This method I’m going to share requires a few basic skills of generating and monitoring traffic, English writing skills and a bit of patience too. But before I start, I would like to clarify;

  • What affiliate marketing is and the different types of affiliate marketing.
  • The advantages of being an affiliate marketer

What is affiliate marketing?

Now, Affiliate marketing is basically when you are rewarded for helping a business promote and sell its product.

For example, if you sign up for Jumia.com affiliate program and promote its product then you will get a commission when the visitor you send from your site, blog or Facebook page makes a purchase.

When you join Jumia.com Affiliate program and choose the products that you want to sell, Jumia.com will provide you with a unique affiliate code that you can use to refer traffic to Jumia.com.

When interested visitors click on these links from your site, blog or Facebook page they get redirected to Jumia.com and if they purchase a product or subscribe to a service you as the referrer make a commission.

Do you want to know the sweetest part of affiliate marketing?

You don’t need to sell products all the time to make a commission.

Yes… you really do not have to sell all the time to make a commission.

This is basically because different affiliate programs can use different payment terms such as:

  • Pay per Sale: In this program, a product owner pays you a percentage of the sale price when the purchase is completed.
  • Pay per Click: In this program, you get paid based on the number of visitors you redirect to the products owner website from your affiliate site, whether or not a sale is made.
  • Pay per Lead: You get paid once the referred visitors provide their contact information on the target site by filling out a simple contact form.

Advantages of being an affiliate marketer

Today, Affiliate marketing is considered to be one of the world’s fastest-growing and best internet marketing techniques to earn money online.

Here is why:

  • It is cost effective: Marketing on the internet is cheap and you don’t have to worry about the production cost as the product is already developed by the seller. You don’t need a physical business location or hire employees either.
  • Global Market: Online marketing gives you the opportunity to reach people all over the world easily.
  • No Fees: You don’t need to pay anything to join affiliate programs.
  • No Storage No Shipping: You don’t need to worry about storage, packing or shipment of the product. They are all taken care of by the seller.
  • No customer support: You don’t need to provide any customer support or deal with consumer complaints as the Seller does that for you.
  • Passive income: A regular job can give you a fixed income as long as you continue to work. Depending on your marketing skill, Affiliate marketing can create a steady flow of income even when you are not in front of your computer.
  • Work from home: If you make enough money then you don’t have to worry about going to work at the same time every day or getting stuck in traffic. You can work in the comfort of your own home.

So let’s start…

1. Find a suitable Internet Plan

The fuel of every digital job is the Internet!

Without a suitable data plan, you will find it extremely hard to start working effectively online.

2. Choose a niche

Set your mind back then in school?

Are you best at all subjects?

No, right?

Okay, so here is what I’m saying.

Before you get started with affiliate marketing, you need to first pick a niche that interest you. Choosing the best niche requires your expertise in that field and sometimes requires in-depth knowledge and skill. For instance, one of my employees started a technology blog to market strictly tech product on his website and social media pages.

He opened this blog due to his interest in helping people with simple tech problems.

So, I believe you understand what I’m saying now.

There are different affiliate marketing niche you can venture in – Fashion, Education, Health, Digital products and more. Carefully look for the area you fit and find a product you would promote in that market.

3. Build a blog or Social Media community

There’s no doubt that effective affiliate business requires a blog or affiliate website, the importance of a website for any digital business is unarguable.

You’ll need a blog. I think most of you already have it.

Let me dish out one quick fast secrets to grow your list If you decide to go with the blog instead of Social Media page.

Create an eBook for your blog.

This is the most important factor in this process. You have to create an eBook which is really totally unique. It must attract your readers.

It’s what we call a lead magnet. Click here to learn more about lead generation.

Write an eBook with great information about your niche, which audience all over the world wants for FREE. For doing this, create a very catchy cover and make the title of eBook a bit spicy.

If you can’t write an eBook then you can outsource it from others too. They are many writers available there. It may be a bit expensive. So better you write by your own. After creating eBook, it’s time to create a landing page for your blog.

A landing page is where your visitors’ lands and that page attracts the visitor and makes him give his email/buy the eBook/subscribe to your blog etc.

Different landing pages have different purposes to convert. For this process, you need that visitor to provide you with his genuine email address. In return, you’ll give the report/eBook to him for free. You create a landing page on your blog’s homepage because of most of the visitors arrive at your homepage.

If you don’t know to design landing pages, then do not worry.

At our digital marketing certification training, building a custom landing page for your business is one of the core practical aspects of our training program Click here to register for our training let’s do the teaching.

We believe this is one of the most effective ways of generating quality leads or buyers with an interest in your affiliate product and service. Click here to learn more about building landing pages

So let’s move on.

After that, you’ve to set up an email auto-responder.

When someone gives his/her email address, the auto-responder will send him a notification to confirm it and the eBook (for what he subscribed).

Now, this is where your knowledge of email marketing comes into play.

Email marketing is an important part of your affiliate marketing strategy. This is because most times 90% of your first-time blog visitors won’t buy from you immediately.

You will need an email marketing system to nurture them over time. Click here to learn more about email marketing

Once you have built this all things, you’ll need traffic to your landing page. Remember even if you are getting 1,000,000 daily traffic to your blog if they are not interested in what you are offering it will all be a waste of time and effort.

The key is getting quality traffic of people with an interest in the affiliate product or service you are offering.

Which is what we show you how to do at our digital marketing trainingClick here to learn more about generating traffic from google or social media.

For example, you want to sell slimming tea as an affiliate product and the kind of people you get to your blog are people who are already slim… what’s the likelihood of them buying the slim tea?

Almost close to none… even though you may get models who still want to slim down, the idea is to get as much quality leads as possible.

Once you got the email address, now you need to convert it to a buyer. Send them a 7-day course which will teach them something unique in your niche. For example, if you are blogging about weight loss, send a 7-day course named “The 7-day Plan to lose weight guaranteed”

If your blog is about blogging tips, then send them “How to Make Your Blog More Profitable in 7-days”. The more attractive your headline is, the more attention you will get.

In this 7-day course, you need to win the heart of him/her. You need to build a relationship of trust with them. So be careful while writing it, it is very very important. Once you are done writing it, now it’s time to earn some money. You have given them lots of information for free, now you need to earn money from them.

You will help them make the process fast, and help them, and earn money. Like when you sent a course titled “The 7-day Plan to lose weight guaranteed” promote some products related to losing weight and earn money.

When they trust you, they’ll surely buy it.

4. Find an affiliate product
