Believe it or not, online business has come to stay. Very soon, there will be very few businesses offline without an online presence. Yes, I know you already concluded in your heart that there is nothing like online business; unfortunately, there is. However, there is a good news because I was also there. At a point in my life; I concluded not almost; I mean, I concluded there was nothing like the online business. This was because, every online business I tried then FAILED. You like to why? The businesses I tried were never an online business; rather, they were an online scam. e,g email clicks, survey, HYIP and many more.
Fast forward… to be honest with you, there are online businesses; I mean genuine, true and real online businesses. As working online has completely transformed my life for the better. Thanks to my ability to make money from the web, I’ve been able to live wherever I want, work from a hotel, school, bar or restaurant, and pursue projects that I’m passionate about. I’ve had the BEST last 8 years.
On a ‘hard’ day, I wake up at 9am, head to my parlor and sit down to write or promote my brand until 5pm. While on other days, I’ll be working while visiting somewhere in Ogun or Osun state. One of my favourite ever memories was sitting in a café in Ondo. It was warm but raining outside, and I was with my friend, a fellow online business colleague. It was 10pm, we were sipping juice, and we were both working on projects we loved. As we typed, we watched the world go by and just drank in the atmosphere.
Many people live their lives like this by becoming ‘digital nomads’. That means they travel the world while earning a living from their laptops. Others choose to stay at home but just work in the way they want to, this is called ‘lifestyle design’.
I’ve been invited to Port Harcourt where I’ve worked with other tech enthusiasts. I’ve written a book. And I’ve built a successful YouTube channel where I get to vlog about topics that matter to me and then discuss them with just the best army of fans.

I’ve learned to program and built a hit app. I’ve met several of my heroes in person and even had the privilege of working with them.
All these thanks to the power of the web. Thanks to the internet, I’ve been able to pursue whatever work interests me and do that from anywhere!
And it pays pretty well too!
The web does wonderful things for people. I know countless others who have enjoyed similar success from different strategies. I met a guy at a YouTube event who makes a BIG passive income by selling motivational courses on Udemy. Another friend of mine managed to get his website to the top of Google for the term ‘Make Money Online’. He sold that website, moved to a sunny country and bought a massive house.
And I’ve seen people use internet business to transform themselves into a hugely successful brand. I’ve seen people become famous musicians through YouTube, simply because they knew how to create an online brand and then promote it.
The web is yours for the taking, and internet marketing will show you how to take it!
