He has proven to be one of the best in the field through his success in recent years.

How can you describe digital Marketing?
Digital marketing is the umbrella term used to describe all the marketing effort used to attract, engage, convert, and retain customers online. Digital marketing utilizes various channels such as content marketing, social media, SEO and SEM to relate their marketing message to their potential customers.
Digital Marketing

Does Digital Marketing work for small businesses? 
Digital marketing work for all business, So far your customers are online. The result you get now depends on the effectiveness of your digital marketing strategy. If digital marketing doesn’t work for your business that means there is a flaw in your strategy.

What are the prominent benefit of digital marketing over traditional marketing?
It is measurable, you can easily determine the success of each digital channel you are using. This is one of the main reason why there is a switch to the digital form of advertising.

Secondly, you can easily target your ideal customers, With digital marketing you can ensure that the right customers are viewing your content. For example SEO and SEM ensure that your contents or ads are displayed to people who their search query matches with what your business does.

social media advertising enables you to target those who are most likely to be interested in your products or services based on demographic information and general characteristics.
With digital marketer you don't have to worry that you are wasting your marketing budget on people not interested in your business

Which digital marketing channels do you think small businesses should adopt at early stage?
First of all I think every small businesses ready to use digital marketing to drive sales need a good and responsive website, because that will be your online home. Due to the technicalities of other digital marketing channels I think small businesses should start with social media marketing. This has also proven to be effective since virtually all their customers are on social media. But there is one problem I noticed is that small businesses are using the social media wrongly and that's why it has not proved to be effective for so many of them.

How long will it take to see results of digital marketing? 
Digital marketing is not a magic that will get you sales instantly, marketing is all about building trust before selling, same with digital marketing, people that will buy from you online also have to trust you before they buy. The better your digital marketing strategy the faster you get the expected results.

How can small businesses with little capital do digital marketing? 
They should try and discover which channel that will get them more customers and then focus on it.

What is the major challenges small businesses face with digital marketing? 
The major challenge small businesses face is that they couldn't define their customers online, and if you embark on marketing to the wrong set of people your marketing will end up not getting any results.

Where should small business start when developing a digital marketing strategy?
Small businesses have to understand their target market ,know their customers behaviour so that they can use the digital channel that their customers are concentrated on rather than using channels that they think are politically right. For example if your customers are not active on facebook and you are utilizing facebook as your main digital channel, then your marketing efforts won’t drive any result.

Do you have any advice on how small businesses can better leverage social media?
Yeah, they should understand that social media has it’s own psychology, social media is to interact with people, and business should not drift far away from this. Always aim to create quality and engaging contents which will appeal and interest them. Lastly, I would say all small businesses should adopt the 80/20 rule, which means80% of your social media posts should inform, educate, and entertain your audience, while 20% should directly promote your business.

  • Free SSL Certificates (Let’s Encrypt)
  • MySQL databases, email, FTP accounts

We buy a domain name so that we own it for a certain amount of time, and we pay the company who we register it with to host it on their name servers. If the domain name isn't on a name server then no one will be able to reach your website. If these companies gave the domain names away for free, how could they afford to run their name servers?

The web, unfortunately, mirrors real life. Nothing is free, everything that makes it work costs a certain amount of money to run.

By the way the most of the services provided by the world wide web is free. Domain names are the building blocks of the world wide web. They act like 'markers' for websites. They are just names, identities(you can say). They need to be pointed to a server(that actually hosts your data; your website in simple terms). They need servers to do that, which you pay for.

How Much Money do Instagram Models Make?

Instagram (and other social media) stars make money by promoting or endorsing a product you don't realize is being promoted or endorsed.

Image

The FTC recently sent a letter to 90 social media influencers to be more transparent and conspicuous about the brands they're promoting.

What started as innocent product placements in celebrity selfies, quickly turned into a money making machine hawking ads at unsuspecting consumers.


Top influencers can command $300,000 per YouTube video. Even a so-called micro-influencer can make a decent living working sponsored content into their social media diet, according to Captiv8's data. An Instagram user with 100,000 followers can command $5,000 for a post made in partnership with a company or brand.

Brands pay influencers big bucks to pose with their products in obvious and sometimes not so obvious ways.
Image
Here's an obvious product plug;


The application of instagram is already one of the applications that includes a huge number of users from all over the world, the number of which in the latest statistics of more than 500 million active users.

Therefore, it has fertile ground for marketing services and products. So it creates new ways to profit. Imagine with me that you have an account on an intrest that is interested in a specific niche and your followers are 100 thousand followers. Will inevitably become a target for a group of start-ups that want to market their products. You can only pay more than $ 100 to post an advertising ad (s) on your account in order to promote their product or services. It’s really a profitable deal. Yes, of course it is. But before you do this, you must first make a good effort to make your account one of the most popular and interactive accounts with Instagram!

What should I do to start earning from Instagram!

OK . What you should do to start earning profit from an instagram application. It is first of all to think of an area where a large segment of the users of this application are interested and make them follow new. Then go directly to Instagram application, either to the source of the Web or the application itself, and create a new account. Then start publishing photos and videos related to the domain you have chosen with respect to copyright. This is done on a regular basis. So that you gain the greatest number of followers



This same applies to all the stars or models or celebs (pseudo) on Instagram.

It gets easier as you get more followers(1000s). There are these celebs who have followers more than a million, exactly not 100,000 but 1,000,000 followers. I will tell you about an Indian actress who is pretty popular but still nothing in compared with Selena Gomez, Christiano Ronaldo, Kylie Jenner (100 million + followers).

She is Katrina Kaif. (She is actually the 11th most popular Indian Celeb, this number might vary as the followers keep on increasing every second). She has 11.1 million followers on Instagram, which is quite low as compared to her popularity in India, and that is because still most of the Indians don't use Instagram.

Instagram in India is treated like a premium Social Networking site over the likes of Facebook & Twitter. Also, some are not even aware of Instagram as popularity of its parent company Facebook is too high, where India has more 250 million users.

Recently(31st May,2018) she posted an Instagram story :

Exactly, she looks very pretty in those glasses right. Next thing what do you notice is she has tagged the company where she bought it from. Specially some fan boys and girls who think they look like Katrina, or even admire her for her fashion sense would want to get hold off those cute specs.

That's it, Katrina has done her job, she is gonna get paid in millions (not Dollars but Rupees) for the post.

Now you will ask why so much, let's see some stats

Followers : 11.1 million

Profile Viewers : More than 11.1 million

Average Likes per Post : 800k to 1 million

Average Views per Video Post: 1.5 to 2 million

Assuming the same viewership for her Instagram story, this story was viewed by around 1.5 to 2 million of her followers at the least.

The celebs get money on the amount of people they influence, the reach of the sponsored content.

In this case, Katrina would be reaching more 1 million followers, even if the Cost per Impression is 1 Rs she is making 15-20 Lakhs (1.5 to 2 million) for just 1 single Instagram story.

I hope you have got the answer.

Next time if a cute 6 year old niece of yours says she wants to become an Instagram celeb please encourage her, she might make more money by 1 single post than you would be make in an entire month(if not year).


How do Instagram stars( My deifintion of Instagram stars are those with huge, huge, huge number of followers)?

SIMPLE!!! By having sponsored videos, being ambassadors for their products, including the products name more often in their Instagram page.

Here I am not going to discuss about those huge celebrities like Selena Gomez or Justin beiber or stars with like millions of followers. They however will be associated with some or the other brand as brand ambassadors getting paid for using their products or brands wherever they be.

Let's discuss about the common people who make funny videos, vines, make up tutorials or who have a YouTube channel.

I am attaching a link to an Instagram profile video where the person is just a common man who made vines and gained huge number of followers and later looking at the number of followers, he got paid for having a sponsored video on his page. The link is

Other way is an indirect way of earning money. You might have come across few YouTube channels where people ask you to follow their Instagram channel, this is just to make sure whenever they post a video they also post a small clip or photo telling that they have posted a video on their channel and usually users check Instagram more often and they would get to know that there is video posted and you would go to check out the video and YouTube has its own way how people earn money from YouTube.

And sometimes people who have gained huge number of followers due to their talent of dancing or acting or making vines get opportunities to perform live or in movies etc etc. This is one possibility which could happen if your talent matches with that one person who needs people like you and you might come under his radar due to your large number of followers.

Hope it answers your question and clears all your doubts.

Cheers!


Ronaldo earns a staggering £308,000 per Instagram photo.

That’s Rs.2,75,18,197 per single photo. It's just an average and imagine the ceiling amount!

How? Basically this guy have 127m folowers. Some of the endorsements are based on the projection of views his posts can reach where as some of them are based on the likes which can be a addon in certain cases.

Let's scroll through some of the products that he endorsed by posts. Apart from the endorsements, he even has his own clothing line and hotel chains. Just look at the amount of likes these posts are generating. And you can calculate by yourselves that how much money they can make. You also can see the text under his name ‘Paid partnership with X’. That pretty much sums it about .

Athletes with large social media followings offer a huge benefit for their endorsement partners. Cristiano Ronaldo generated $176 million for his sponsors in the 12-months ending in June for the mentions and hashtags in his social media posts last year, according to data from Hookit, which tracks sponsorship value in social and digital media. The hefty tally doesn't include logo image recognition in Ronaldo's posts.

Also his primary sponsor is Nike, so for every photo he posts with the Nike merchandise will also generate money for him based on his contracts (logo image recognition). Even posts like this,

And he started from this,

PURE HARDWORK. Well deserved!

*NOT AN EXPERT, but my opinion anyway*

Followers are important, but the key metric is engagement. This is where your money is.

Have you ever noticed how one spot in the mall always has a new store in it? Or that one shop that has a worker on their phone 90% of the day because nobody goes into the store? Malls have “traffic”. Malls have “Followers”, but unless these people “engage” with a store (buys product, signs up for member card, ect.), the mall eventually falls.

HOW INSTAGRAM STARS DON’T MAKE MONEY.

Growth-Hacking

These people use followback, follow4follow, share4share, and other tags like this to boost their channels quickly. It does work and you end up with people at the mall, and you’ll get some purchases, but all you did was game the system and trust me, this doesn’t scale because eventually companies and promoters are going to catch wind of this and stop doing business with people like this. I believe YouTube’s algorithm already penalizes videos that use growth hacks like this. Other things like contests, mass liking ploys and such also fall into this list, but with some exceptions.

HOW THEY MAKE MONEY.

The way the BIG stars make money is Engagement. People actually talking and having conversations around their topics. These stars understand growth metrics centered around organic communities that are strong because the content is strong, Not because they were forced to follow them to win an X Box or they were promised they would be followed in return.

You want people that actually care because the content and product are amazing. You don’t want just mindless drone foot-traffic like in the mall. Companies understand this and will pay for it.

*MY $0.02*


Social sites like Twitter & Instagram will not only makes you a famous icon, but apart from this, they can also make you rich.

Popular Twitter & Instagram user sign a bond with brands through marketing agencies. According to that bond, user have to promote a brand or more through posts and pics on their social networks, it is totally upto them how they promote a brand, directly or indirectly. And in return they get paid for promotional tweets and posts.

It is not only for popular icon and stars, anybody with at least 50 followers, 100 tweets and 60 days old account can earn money for promotional tweets,


1. Advertising

Once you have grown your page, you have the power to influence your followers and inspire them.

To be able to advertise on you page, you should at least have 10K followers (preferably a lot more) since brands usually looks for working with bigger pages.

What advertising means is that you contact brands that sells products relevant to your page’s niche and ask them if they would like to advertise on your page. You then post a photo of that brands products and tell your followers to check them out and/or start following their page by simple mentioning them @.

There are lots of factors that plays a part in how much you can charge such as niche, followers and engagement so it is impossible to tell you how much you should charge.

Bonus tip: contact Instagram pages similar to yours and ask them how much they charge for a post on their page. By doing so, you can learn more about what your competitors are taking and get a better understanding of how much you can charge.

Once you’ve grown your page to a lot of followers, it is more common that brands will contact you asking for your advertising rates but if you have a smaller page, you have to do the work of contacting brands if you are looking to build your Instagram millions in the beginning.

2. Affiliate marketing

All of these tricks on How to Become a Millionaire With Instagram requires you to have a somewhat decent following as mentioned above and there is no difference with this one.

Affiliate marketing through Instagram is a common and often easy way to start making your millions- especially if you have a large following.

There are many ways in which you can do this but the most common is that you make a deal with a company to get your own discount code which your followers can use to get let’s sat 10% off when shopping. When a product is sold with your personalized discount code, you will then receive 10% of the products’ price.

The other way is that you get an affiliate link that you can put in your Instagram bio and then advertise the product that you are making a cut of when sold.

If you can sell a lot of products, then this way can result in some serious money and this is also the way some Instagram millionaires have made their fortune.

3. Open Your Own Online Store

A lot of big Instagram pages are opening their own online store and sells something that their following base might be interested in. For example, if you post nature photos, it might not be a good idea to start selling footballs. Instead, analyze your audience and try to come up with something that they might actually want.

The good thing with this is once you have a large Instagram page, you can use that source for marketing. Often-you don’t need to advertise in other ways. The best part is that the marketing for your online store is free.

Depending of how interested your audience will be in the product, you can generate some serious money with an online store and ultimately make your millions with the help of your Instagram followers.

A good thing is that if you run a page where you are posting personal pictures of you, people usually look up to you in a different way than if you are hiding. This can mean that people want to be like you and buys the products you are advertising just because of that reason.

Publiseer Reports First Profitable Quarter

Nigerian digital publisher, Publiseer, today, reports a profit for its first quarter in 2018, adding over 200 new releases in the past 30 days. The company posts a first-quarter profit of $10,877.58, comfortably ahead of its expectations.



Following the profits, Publiseer has launched its 'Premium Distribution Service' that will distribute books and songs for an upfront fee, allowing its authors and musical artists to keep 100% of their earnings. Nevertheless, old and new clients can still use its 'Freemium Distribution Service' that gives Publiseer a 25% commission on sales.

It's taken just 8 months for Publiseer to become a money-maker. The digital publishing company reported its first profitable quarter today, driven by a 20% rise in submissions and a faster reputation growth overseas. 

Publiseer has thrived since its launch in August 2017, and traction has grown drastically. Since its international popularity is growing exponentially, the company is making moves to expand its services outside of Nigeria. In response to this, Publiseer has distributed the works of Canadian Youtuber Heidi Shai, American Jazz musician Ragtime Joe, and Missouri producer ANB Beats. In Africa, Publiseer has distributed the books of Cameroonian writer Juan Gutied and Zimbabwean author Godfrey Masanga.

As of writing, Publiseer has distributed 92 books and 374 tracks by 73 authors and 154 artists, having received over 1,000 submissions since August 2017. Chidi Nwaogu, Publiseer's CEO said: "Starting Publiseer, we weren't focused on profitability as an early-stage company, rather, we were focused on customer satisfaction and retention. But at the beginning of the first quarter of this year, submissions doubled and thus our releases too. It's good building something that meets a growing need, and which eventually makes lots of money."

Publiseer is a digital publishing platform for unsigned and independent writers and musicians with low-income or from low-income families. However, the platform is open to well-established authors and musicians looking for new avenues to distribute and monetize their creative works on the World Wide Web. Publiseer has distributed the works of A-list Nigerian artists like CDQ, Klever Jay, Erigga, and DJ Jozenga of RayPower FM.

How to Make Money Writing for Client and for Yourself


1. Use the Bait System
One problem (if not the only problem) faced by most freelance writers is landing clients. It has always been a challenge since the existence of freelance writing. For some, it is not a problem. They know all the tricks in landing the clients of their choice.
I want to introduce you to what I call the bait system. I have been using this system since I started freelance writing and it is what has brought me to where I
 am today.


What is the bait system?
The bait system is a sales tactic used by companies to get prospective customers to buy their product or service. You and I have fallen for it more than once. It is what I use in getting prospective clients come to me instead of me running after them.
Examples of the bait system includes discount, free trial, buy one get one free (BOGO) etc.

As a freelance writer hungry for client, you can also apply this into your business to get client come to you to give you a try. That was how I landed my first client years back and I now use different bait to get more.
Telling clients that you will write the first 2 blog posts for free or for ₦500/per is a bait. No one seriously looking for a freelance writer will say no to this.
Telling clients that you are running a 30% discount is also another bait. I use this sales tactic every month and it works all the time.

Start looking at the way businesses run adverts and see how you can create your own bait that you can be using to bring prospective client to you. I came up with this bait idea after studying 107 sales letters written by the world most successful salesmen.
Presently, I don’t find it difficult landing clients of my choice. I know how and where to use my bait and it converts well for me.

2. Ebook Writing
This is one way to make money writing for client and for yourself. With eBook writing, you either get paid to write for client or you make money writing your own eBook and selling it.

If you really want to make money from eBook writing, I will suggest you focus on writing your own eBooks and selling them. This is one way to create passive income.
All you will need to do to really make money with eBook writing is to first choose a niche, build a tribe/list of people that you will like to serve and lead, give them value for free and sell your eBook as a product and make money.

Aside that, you can decide to write your eBooks and upload them on Okadabooks and other eBook selling platforms like Amazon. All you will then be doing is driving traffic to your eBook so as to create awareness and luckily make sales.
If you ask me which is the best, I will tell you to go with the former.

Yes, I know it is very hard to build a list of huge subscribers. But, you will surely reap the benefits at the end. Selling your eBook to people that already know, like and trust you is much easier than selling to people that only know you because you have written an eBook.
You should be able to attest to this.

3. Blogging
This is another way any freelance writer can make money writing for client and for oneself. There are so many ways to make money with blogging which I am not here to share. But, two major ways you can easily make money as a writer is via Google Adsense and pro-blogging (helping others manage their blog).

Making money with Google Adsense do not involve a lot of stress. What you will need to focus on are publishing good content which must be SEO friendly and driving traffic to your site. If you can stick to this religiously, you will surely be making good amount of money monthly from Adsense.
For pro-blogging, you will need to start a blog on the niche you are passionate about, publish good number of content and build traffic for the blog. After blogging for like 3 months, you can start pitching webmasters on the idea of helping them manage their blog.

Your pitch must be so enticing that they will feel stupid not to buy into it.
I know so many freelance writers making up to ₦20,000 monthly from pro-blogging. I once did it in the past. It is very sweet because your income is sure at the end of the month.
So, there you have it.

Don’t waste another day. Start now and by the end of this year, if you stick to one strategy, you should be in an inevitable position of earning a fulltime income as a freelance writer.

Just let me know via the comment box if there is any way I can help you.
