Make Money Online / How To Make Money As A Freelance Writer In Nigeria by ikoiikenna: 08:54pm On 6 Jun
How to Make Money As A Freelance Writer in Nigeria is one of the most commonly asked questions I hear from new writers or writers who are writing at a low rate and I also asked the same question when I started.

Thankfully, I figured out how to do it and as a result, I have become a successful freelance writer. Are you an aspiring freelance writer in Nigeria or you are already into freelance writing but you are not making enough money like the others?

Do you know that you can make a full-time income as a freelance writer? I am a freelance writer and I am making a full-time income running a five figure freelance writing business here in Nigeria. So, you have made the decision that you are going to step into freelance writing career but how do you get a client who needs experience writers for their business to pay you to write for them?

This post is a most read if you are really thinking of making money as a freelance writer in Nigeria. You can still get dozens of a client to pay you even if you are just starting out as a freelance writer.

These 5 tips on how to make money as a freelance writer in Nigeria will help you become a successful freelance writer if you take action. Remember, if you take action.

1. A Freelance writer Blog

Building your online present is essential for branding yourself as a freelance writer. If you don’t have a blog, it is of no use how good you are as a writer.

One of the reason clients want to visit your blog is so they can check out your writing. Your blog is your portfolio where you are to fill great samples for your client to see. You need to have a blog if you want to be seen as a professional writer. Whether the blog is beautiful or not, what clients are interested in is the write-up.

As a writer with a blog, you need to create a good post on your blog, do not rush this process. Sit down and create samples that show your expertise. Your client might just visit your blog and will be surprised to see that you have written an article on a topic he or she needs.

Write a blog post that when you read it, you will be proud that you wrote something. Remember these posts are your sample that will entice your client to pick you for a writing gig. So, if your blog posts contain grammatical errors, are out of the point or not engaging, it will surely chase your client away.

2. Guest Posting

Guest posting can be a powerful tool to getting client quicker if you can use it effectively. Guest posting helps you reach out to an audience that may take years to reach out to if you are to rely on your outreach. Guest posting helps you stand out of the crowd of freelance writers. You have a couple of blogs that you always visit, why not pitch them a chance to guest post on their blog?

A lot of blogs accept guest post, familiarize yourself with those blog editors and submit your articles to them for exposure. You can never tell if your first or next client is a reader on that blog. I can’t count how many clients I have gotten just from guest posting in a blog with the large audience in my niche.

3. Cold Pitching

As a freelance writer, you should have the confident to pitch blog editors for a gig. I know everyone hates rejection so we just prefer client coming to us to negotiate, but what of if it is taking long for them to come because they are so busy with other things but not welcoming new writers? The highest you can get is no, but it is worth giving a try. Be clear and concise, and use a great title/subject in your pitch email. It is the first thing editors see before they will think of clicking through to read your message.

If you don’t know whether they need a freelance writer, kindly ask if they do use the services of a freelance writer and you are available for them. Drop links to your samples or a link to your ‘Hire Me’ page which should contain your portfolio of guest posts.

4. Choose a Specialty and Stick to It

You may be thinking that too actually make money as a freelance writer you just have to be a good writer right? You are definitely wrong, being a good writer is what you should before you should even call yourself a writer.

Why am I able to charge client at a high rate and yet they still pay me for my writing services? It is just in one word, ‘Specialize’. When you specialize in a niche, you gain more experience in that niche. This makes you authority writing on that niche and enables you to charge more because the client knows that they are working with an authority with a lot of experience.

The client will gladly pay you generously to write for them because they know that your writing is from a place of authority.

5. Learn from a Proven Mentors

You must have known people who are already where you want to be in terms of becoming a highly paid writer. You need to get close to those people, the social media has made every closer with each other with just a few clicks.

Subscribe to their newsletter, join their Facebook groups, like their page. Just hang around them and if you have the finance, enroll in their coaching course if they have any or just meet them and tell them you will like them to mentor you. It is faster if you have someone who will show you the way and teach you what you need to know to avoid you traveling a long journey to arrive at a destination that should have taken you just a step with a mentor.

As a writer, I have so many mentors and coaches that I learn from, do you have? And you call yourself a writer?

Manufacturing/ Production / Ideas On How To Start Detergent Soap Manufacturing by danieluyi: 08:40pm On 6 Jun
@ ikoiikenna,

I came over here after reading your post at on how to manufacture powder detergent soap on a small scale. I saw you wrote an eBook on it but I find it difficult to comprehend "how to" guides from reading alone. I am a final year student here in Benin city and I am hoping to start this business on a small scale with the hope of growing it big after leaving school but my problem is little capital and zero knowledge about the soap-making procedures. how do I get those raw materials you mentioned in bulk? how do I get the necessary machines required? how do I make the final end detergent different from others? because I am hoping to start supplying to my locality and build a mini-brand from there.

@ ikoiikenna, except for the marketing aspect, I really have no idea on the manufacturing and packaging aspect of this business and I would really appreciate if you can tutor me on this.

W.E/General / 25 Words Never To Say In A Job Interview by ikoiikenna: 07:23am On 6 Jun
So many people just have too many dream jobs that they keep blowing things up, they know the worth of the job, they know the pay grade and its allowance so well that they are too nervous to even make a pass in an interview, some are too smart even for her potential employer that they just use words that to them is a hammer on the nail but unknowing to then it's another dream job never gotten.

A job interview is basically a general assertion of one capability in nearly all areas of life that is measurable. The use of word plays a vital role, we are often asked the question of how are you?, describe yourself in a sentence etc, this are really really simple English question that a high school student can answer talk less of someone with a college degree. But yet you see many blowing up the opportunity of a million dollar worth job opportunity because of these questions, what's the problem? WRONG USE OF WORDS

To help out I have compiled a list of words though seem right should never be said in a job interview. I will make a list here in our next article I will explain why you shouldn't use them if you intend to score the job.

Money, salary, pay, compensation
Weakness and mistake
Park or benefit
Terrible, horrible, awful
Never use the curse words like Fu--, bi--- etc
Um, so
Divorced, pregnant or sick

Travel / How To Become A Good Travel Photographer by ikoiikenna: 06:27am On 6 Jun
If you remember quite well, we sometimes ago talked about the possible investments you could make and the career paths that you could choose by going into the business of photography, and when we started to narrow things down, we also talked about how you can set up shop as a wedding photographer and make it big in the business. Well, we were not planning to leave other niches on the list hanging as today, we would be talking about how to make money from travel photography.

People are fond of traveling and during the holiday parts of the year most especially, they would go on vacations and holidays either alone or with their family and friends. They usually come back with beautiful shots that they had taken while over there and while you may be amazed by the beauty of the pictures, you could also start earning big by taking up that line of work. Either you wish to build a team of travel photographers or go into the business yourself, below are the steps that you should consider.

1.Conduct necessary research
One thing about business is that it is unique to different individuals. You and your friend might start the same business in the same day and one of you might go on to be more successful than the other in the same time frame, not because the other didn’t put in efforts, but just because it didn’t align with their interests. If you are not confident about travel photography business, the first point of call is to make extensive research on what it really entails and see if it aligns with your interests. If it does, it is the career path for you and you should go on with this.

2. Learn skills
To be a travel photographer, there is a whole repertoire of skills to be learned. The fact that you have been handling the camera for a while does not mean you would excel when taking unique pictures and capturing moments with people and places in it. you need to take up courses to keep you up to date with how to recreate that magical, longing and unforgettable moment with a single shot. You might also need to pick up a language if you would be going out of your region to work sometimes.

3. Join a group/team
Don’t be afraid that you would not find one because they are very many around you if you look closely. Find a team of experienced travel photographers who have a steady workflow and join them. This way, you would get jobs on the regular, get the chance to travel with them and gain some experience and even learn the ropes or when you want to branch out and start yours.

4. Get Traveling Documents
Since you would be working as a travel photographer, you would need to get documents that would aid your passage into the country where you are going to make coverage. The visa, passports and every other document needed by travel agencies should be available because the duty can call anytime.

5. Cover sites in your country
The best way to gain experience is to go on the field. Check out the tourist regions in your own country and cover them. If you are on a team already, you could submit them for grading and assessment to help you get better in the future. This might even be a good reference point later when your clients need to see how proficient you are.

6. Sell your works
If you have been gathering some beautiful and magical pictures of places for a while and you think that your collection would find good application in greeting cards, artworks, and the likes, you should start looking for clients to buy them. Travel magazines, documentaries, review websites and the lot of them are suitable clients to sell your work to.

From the above, you can see that while you would be having fun on the job by getting the chance to go places, you would be making money from the pictures for your clients and also, on collections you gather on the side. What are you waiting for?
