Step 1: Start a Blog to Make Money While Sleeping

Wait. It’s not as easy as it sounds. Running a successful blog in Nigeria that’s capable of generating massive income while you sleep requires a lot of time, resources and creativity.

To start a blog business in Nigeria, you will need a custom domain name, self-hosted blog and a premium theme. All of these put together will guarantee you ownership of a blog that has all it takes to make money faster.

As an organization that has been in the business of blogging, we recommend you buy your domain name from NameCheap, get your web hosting from Siteground and premium theme from MyThemeShop or ThemeForest. If you are running on a low budget, we suggest you only pay for custom domain and ThemeForest premium theme while you skip self-hosting – in that case, you will use Google hosting platform called, Blogger to set up your blog. We can as well do it for you at a fee.

Once your blog is set up, you may choose to publish sponsored post, display adverts on rented spaces or use advertising networks like Google AdSense, PropellerAds etc., and make money with any of these methods.

If you have high organic traffic or your keywords have high CPC, you will make huge amount of money from this.
