I’m a Nigerian Entrepreneur
I’m not ashame to say that I am a Nigerian Entrepreneur. I am proudly Nigerian and I don’t attempt to hide it despite the bad reputation that some black sheep among us have earned for the entire country.
I set out to make money online after reading several articles on how to Make Money Online. Some of the articles were read on blogs and websites that I visited voluntarily. Some were read from spam emails that caught my attention. Of course some information were gotten from websites that were phishing.
Coming from a country whose image abroad has been bastardize by some greedy and unscrupulous citizens, it is my desire to demonstrate that a honest Nigerian Entrepreneur can earn money online without indulging in fraudulent activities.
The original copy of this post was first published on my blog naijaecash.blogspot.com. It was the very first step of the journey. Now, naijaecash.blogspot.com has metamorphosed into http://www.naijaecash.com However, my goal still remain the same.
Nigerian Entrepreneur’s goal
My main goal for starting this blog is to achieve the following:
Make Money by rendering services online.
Get famous in the blogosphere while retaining my Nigerian Identity.
To achieve this, my targeted audience will be
Newbie bloggers (like myself),
Newbie entrepreneurs online and
Nigerian Entrepreneurs in the blogosphere.
Nigerian Entrepreneur’s Plan
My plan is to start a business blog (titled Nigerian Entrepreneur) with zero dollar. I will be investing the following resources.
Skills learnt online
Other peoples experience
Friends and Readers Contribution
After raising income online (it will be entirely raised online), I will move the blog to a paid hosting package. (This has been achieved. I earned some Entrecard Credit and loaned some from a friend to purchase the domain name and the hosting package. No physical cash was introduced into the online business).
Just like any offline business I have my goals well written out, I have set targets, and I am drawing out comprehensive plans on how to achieve them. Most importantly, I am determined to work relentlessly until I have achieved my goals stated above. (That I am now on a paid hosting using my own domain name is a sign that I am making progress).
Since the success of any business online can be zeroed down to a single phrase “quality traffic = profit” (that is the understanding I have for now), I will be focusing most of my resources on getting good content on my blog , Nigerian Entrepreneur and then using various social networks media to draw visitors to the blog. (You can bet that Entrecard is one of my very first point of call).
How will I measure Nigerian Entrepreneur success?
I will measure the success of my blog using the following parameters:
Numbers of Visitors.
Number of Comments
RSS Feed Subscriptions
Business Directly Generated
That is it. Thanks for visiting and reading this article. If you like my post, encourage me by dropping a comment. Subscribing to my Nigerian Entrepreneur RSS feed will surely be much appreciated and of course I am looking forward to your return visit. Enjoy!
N.B – My focus is now on this blog. I may scarcely give attention to Naijaecash.blogspot.com. That blog has served its purpose. The focus now is on Nigerian Entreperneur. Enjoy!
