Do you want to make money from home in Nigeria but don’t know exactly which of the available businesses you see online or those recommended ones to venture in? Well, I understand you, and how passionate you are, to work from home.

But why should you try to make money from home in Nigeria?

Well, the year 2020 has been one year people won’t forget in a hurry, a lot of deaths, the economic collapse of nations, mass lay-offs from the big firms, and lots of worry for people. About 22 million people lose their jobs in the United States of America (USA) and many people in Nigeria are automatically jobless and some are dying in hunger.

Among the many worries we have in this period hinges on our financial life, almost everyone is at home and the question is; how can we make money from home in Nigeria?

1. Freelancing

You’ve probably heard or read about this somewhere, but I’ll still say it; it’s the best way to improve your financial life, and you can do this without any form of boundaries. 

Personally, I’ve earned a lot of money from freelancing and it is my number one source of income.

It saddens me to know that many Nigerians with profitable skill don’t get to make as much money as they should, people pay huge bucks for these skills on various freelancing platforms and some Nigerians make between four to six figures monthly via freelancing, it’s even a full-time job for some.

You don’t need to get an office, all you need is a good computer with a strong internet connection and you’re good to make money from home in Nigeria.

If you’ve got any skill (especially digital), then waste no time in registering on freelancing platforms – there are lots of them out there; Fiverr and Upwork are some of the most popular ones.

These days, you find out that pictures are more visually appealing and receive lots of reactions than plain text, many firms, and freelancing platforms require the services of one who could create stunning, eye-catching graphics that will appeal to their various audience, this creates lots of opportunities for graphics designers out there.

Basically, you need a good laptop for this and the skill, even if you don’t have the skill there are more than enough mediums to learn online, once you’ve gotten to a certain level of proficiency, you could start applying for jobs and start making money from home in Nigeria.

3. Crypto trading

I must say that cryptocurrency trading is a very profitable business that doesn’t require much, but it comes with its own risks. 

As we seek out better ways of making payments, financing contracts and more, crypto is greatly gaining acceptance by merchants and financial institutions worldwide, this implies more ease of doing business with the ability to pay for any product, anywhere in the world.

Asides being a means of payment, crypto at the moment is one big gold mine and miners around the world are constantly drilling its treasures. One of the best ways to make money via cryptocurrency is through trading – with this you can make a good amount of money in Nigeria.

4. Forex trading

Still on trading, although with a different kind of money – the real money! Forex or foreign exchange has been a viable means of income for quite some years now and the possibilities are just limitless.

Today, you don’t need much requirements to trade, just your smartphone, internet connection, and your brain. It’s even easier to learn the ropes of this business as more and more online courses keep dropping every day on how to trade better. 

There are numerous platforms and apps (both Android and iOS) that you could utilize when trading, some even give you a demo account with some money in it so as to practice better ways of trading. It’s a pretty lucrative business once you master the art, and you can!

To learn how to make money from home in Nigeria through forex trading, I will advise you to enroll yourself to free resources available on YouTube and go to pirple.com to learn more about Forex and Crypto trading for free!

5. Content Writing

We all know how to write, from the less educated to erudite among us – at least to an extent. Content writing is quite different from actual writing and requires a lot to be mastered which could take some time to learn.

The ability to convey a message, capturing the hearts of the readers, via writing is one good characteristic of a good content writer. There are lots of cooperations out there wishing to pay you for this skill, as a freelancer, you can also make some money in Nigeria via content writing.

This skill requires a lot to learn, patience, and practice are some of the good ingredients that’ll make you a much better writer.

One way to level up your writing skill is to start writing on forums, creating a guest post on blogs and writing on social media platforms, this will boost your confidence and you could begin earning some bucks in the near future.

You may want to ask that;

How much does freelance writers earn in Nigeria?

Their’s no limit to what you can earn as a freelance writer in Nigeria. But your earning per each content depends on the agreement between you and your client. Some are earning 7-figures from writing.

But here is a gospel truth, as a startup freelance writer, you can’t earn up to 7-figures yet. Before you can be able to earn up that, you’ll need to gradually build your reputation and connect with people through pitching.

6. Affiliate Marketing

An affiliate program can let you make money from home in Nigeria by helping brands to promote their products, you get some percentage when a customer purchases a product or service via your affiliate link.

You’d need to look for brands with the best commission rate as some brands pay better than others, once you’ve got this, you could start posting your links on your social handles and watch your credit grow.

This is one of the easiest ways to make money at home in Nigeria, it requires no skill, no capital required to start up, just get registered and get started. Most tops brands include affiliate services for their customers and you can get some cash by jumping in on this.

7. Online Tutoring or Training

In our world today, more people are getting to learn online and online tutors get to make some money from home, you too can be one of them. 

If you know a thing good enough, if you’re a pro at your craft, then you might want to impact your knowledge on other people seeking to learn. It’s just getting to record a video/audio of you explaining concepts while making money from the comfort of your home.

Before you venture into this, you need to be well equipped intellectually in whatever field you choose to cover, making sure also that you employ the use of up to date information. A good place to start your online tutorial journey is on Udemy, but there are other platforms to explore too.

If you need to train people and earn money quickly, you can use a closed WhatsApp group.

But most people are expecting great results by sharing their links on WhatsApp status and Facebook, this is not going to work!

To get more students to enroll in your training, you need to run paid ads on social media. You can read more about this on Google.

8. YouTube

YouTube is a hub of information, entertainment, and learning, it’s one of the best platforms on the internet where you could get any information for free. 

Asides these benefits, many content creators make a living with YouTube, many Nigerians are getting richer on YouTube and you can also make money from home in Nigeria as a Youtuber.

To get started, ensure you have a good digital camera or a smartphone with a pretty good camera, your chosen field, and good internet. Once you’ve got these, you are well on your way to increased finances.

9. Dropshipping

This is pretty new, it’s a form of e-Commerce that allows you to own and run your online store from the comfort of your home. 

We all love to get things done quickly, and the way we shop in the current world is getting much easier. With just a few clicks, you can get that dress delivered to you, purchase a new wristwatch, upgrade your electronics, or even get those little utility products which makes life easier.

With dropshipping, you can make all these possible for consumers and make money from it. You don’t need to have a physical space, but a virtual space (to host your site), hot-selling products and you could begin making money. 

To make money from home in Nigeria through dropshipping, you will need to learn how it works and how to get started. You can check this article on how to start a dropshipping business in Nigeria.

10. Survey sites

Another good way to make money from home in Nigeria is through online survey sites. 

These sites give you an opportunity to make some money while giving your opinion on certain products, services, or just general feedback. These platforms value your opinion as it’s critical to the growth of their business and as such they pay you for this.

You don’t need any skill to be able to make some cash via this medium and I’d say it’s the most easiest way to earn money from home, but there’s a catch; surveys are not always available and so this limit how much you can earn.

11. Website development/design

Creating and designing websites pays quite a lot, this is a very viable skill even though its industry is saturated with a lot of inadequate developers and designers.

It’s been said that anything worth doing is worth doing well, this is one major factor that would set you apart from the rest of the bunch in a much-saturated market. The better you are at your craft, the more money you can earn.

This is a career for most Nigerians, there are also agencies dedicated solely to this field and you too can get to be among those making it in this field. A good laptop, and the skill – which you could easily learn online is a pretty good way to start.

12. Create an app

This skill is a very lucrative one but requires a lot to pull off, mostly intellectual. There’s an app for anything you want to do on the internet, but there are still some apps people need, and we need someone to create that for us.

Since smartphone users can’t create the apps they use, you could create something that solves a problem, games, or apps which increases productivity. You don’t necessarily have to redefine the wheel, you could make modifications to an app that currently lacks some features.

To get started, you have to learn about mobile app development (Android or iOS), have a good laptop, and ultimately the ability to solve problems creatively. The requirements may seem overwhelming, but you could take it one step at a time so as not to get frustrated, in the end, you wouldn’t regret it.

13. Social Media Influencing

Your social media profiles shouldn’t just be for photos, videos, talking about the latest trends or celebrity gossips, you can definitely make money on social media as an Influencer. 

If you’ve got a huge follower base, if you get a lot of reactions from your followers, then this opportunity is for you. Many Nigerian Influencers make good money with their social media profiles.

As an Influencer, top brands reach out to you to promote their brand, you get paid when you post their products/services on their social media profiles. If you don’t have lots of followers, you can start building up so as to avail yourself of the opportunity to earn. 

One of the best ways to become a social media influencer in Nigeria is to start Instagram comedy or skits. You can see that most people who are engaged in this business and they’re making money a lot. You don’t need to be funny, you just need to be creative!

I wrote a book of more than 4,000 words about how anybody can become a successful Instagram comedian in Nigeria. The book costs N5,000 but I’m currently selling at the rate of N1,500 only before the end of this month. If you’re interested in buying the book, Contact me on WhatsApp via 080 6886 6068

14. Social Media Manager

There exist quite some ways to earn on social media, and being a manager is one of those. 

This job requires you to post engaging and creative content all in a bid to promote the brand. This is a big earning opportunity which you should take advantage of, and soon enough, the alerts will start dropping.

You have the opportunity to work remotely with some brands, although some top brands would like you to work directly from their office. There are lots of courses on Udemy, Skillshare, and YouTube which would walk you through the nitty-gritty of this field if you choose to venture into it.

You can make money from home in Nigeria as a social media manager by using gigs on freelancing platforms or by reaching out to business owners in Nigeria.

15. Selling Photos Online

Photography is one of the top-paying vocational skills in Nigeria but here, I don’t mean photography in the actual sense as we all know, but photography where you could sell your photos.

If you take good photos, you could make some money by selling photos on platforms like FOAP, and you can do this from home. 

There’s only one skill required here, good photography prowess – that’s all you’ll be needing!

16. Voice Overs

If you’ve got a good male or female voice, and a clear pitch you could start making money with just your voice – interesting right?

Your voice would be used for voice-overs and commercials which definitely pays a lot. Many firms out there are on the lookout for you, just record your voice and make money.

You can get hired through freelancing platforms as well.

17. Blogging

Blogging is one of the traditional ways to make money from home in Nigeria, many bloggers in Nigeria are making some good bucks via their blogs. Making money from home in Nigeria is very possible when you have a blog. 

It’s very easy to start blogging; pick a niche (especially what you have passion for), get a good tablet or laptop, create your site, learn how to write, and you will be good to go. 

You could also take online courses to help you improve your blogging career.

18. Create and Sell e-books

Many of us have ideas which could improve the lives of people around us, we have stories which could inspire someone out there to become better, we sometimes think of getting to write a book but when we consider the time, effort and resources required to write a book, we just call it off. 

With e-books, you don’t really need much resources, just write, publish, and start making money. 

They are lots of publishing platforms out there – Amazon Kindle is one good option and you should utilize it. You can also sell your eBook on social media but with paid ads.

19. Data Entry Jobs

Companies around the world deal with a lot of data from customers and other sources, sometimes it’s difficult to organize these data, and hence they look to freelancers to help with the tasks. 

This is a simple job you could do on your smartphone and start getting paid. Two of the best platforms you can get started are; Clickworker and Smart Crowd.

20. Real Estate Marketing

Real estate investment is one of the most lucrative business in Nigeria and anywhere in the world. But these people involved in real estate investments need some people to help them market their properties and they pay commissions according to whatever you help them sell.

You can make a N500,000 from selling a property! But you will need to market the property until you finally land a client and you close the sale.

You don’t need an office, all you need is to find a real estate company that accepts agents and you’re good to make money from home in Nigeria.

In the future, I will be talking about making money as a real estate agent or marketer and top real estate companies you can partner with. For now, you can search on Google to get the best one to start with.

10 Surefire Ways to Make Money on Facebook in Nigeria & Globally

Published

on

Do you want to know how you can make money on Facebook in Nigeria or anywhere in the world? I guess that’s why you are here because you’re curious to learn how you can turn the time you spend on the social media app to cool CASH!

Today I’ll be showing you ten simple ways to earn some bucks on Facebook. Of course, there are many ways to make money online and social media platforms are playing vital roles in making these possible. Not only the fact that they can help your business grow, but you can also earn independently on them without selling anything, I will show you how.

But before then, you can check this related article on How to Make Money on Instagram.

Okay, back to the actual journey; Facebook is no longer a chat-only social media platform. It is an all-encompassing ecosystem for people around the world. This huge community creates an enabling environment for businesses of all kinds to thrive.

When I say huge, I mean more than 2.7 billion people in the world are active monthly on this platform, not to talk of several million in-active people. In Nigeria, more than 27 million people are regular users of Facebook.

But, few hundreds of these people know how to make money on Facebook in Nigeria and just millions out of the regular users in the world. 

So, here are what you should do to make money on Facebook…

Surefire Ways to Make Money on Facebook in Nigeria and All Over the World

1. Sell Directly on Facebook

Do you run a business that sells products or services? Are you a fashion designer, shoemaker, graphic designer, or dropshipper or you have some courses (eBooks or videos) to sell? Your Facebook timeline can help you reach more people. I know you’ll be thinking that you’ve been doing that for a while but you’re not making sales.

This is the most basic way you can make money on Facebook today. It is the simplest form. You don’t need to pay for anything. You don’t need to have certain skills or qualifications… but you need to know how to sell. 

On your “What’s on your mind?” box—where you normally post updates. There’s an option at the bottom: Sell Something. Once you select this option, you can then post whatever item you have for sale.

It’s pretty straightforward. Just post the product or service, add a description, you could also add your price if it’s convenient for you. Once you’ve done this, interested friends or followers will contact you to proceed with the sale.

But people on your timeline are mostly friends and family members who may naturally find it difficult to patronize you, there is a way out;

Join Commerce Groups and Pages!

Put simply: join buy and sell groups. And there you are asking: why should I join commercial groups when I can make sales directly on my timeline?

The answer: The same reason why people go to popular markets to sell. 

You see…not everyone on your timeline will be interested in your product or service. But just like the traditional market, commerce groups bring buyers and sellers together.

You’re more likely to make sales on these kinds of groups than on your timeline. 

2. Become An Influencer on Facebook

Let me ask you, how does the like of Sydney Talker, Nasty Blaq, Broda Shaggi and those Instagram comedian make money, do they sell disks? No! They make money on Facebook and other social media platform by helping brands to advertise products or services.

Do you have a huge amount of friends or lots of followers on your Facebook page or group? If yes, then you can utilize this option. But if NO, you’ll need to have a little knowledge of digital marketing in order to advertise your page to get more likes and followers and engagement.

Also, you need to do something that can keep your followers engaged. As said earlier, the like of Broda Shaggi makes money on Facebook, but what do they do before that? They simply share their skits and people engaged massively with it.

You can also look for a way to keep Facebook users engaged, you can do that by posting videos that will attract people.

Once you’ve got all these, here’s how it works. Top brands reach out to you and pay you to advertise their product on your timeline. If you’re creative, you could make a lot of money from this method alone.

Influencer marketing is an effective way of creating publicity about a product or service. Brands have realized this and that’s why they spend money on influencer marketing.

3. Become a Freelance Facebook Page Manager

I know you currently own a Facebook account. And you manage everything that has to do with it. How about managing an account for people or brands who can’t manage theirs for a reason or two? 

You can’t expect the likes of Dangote, Tony Elumelu, and other big brand owners to manage their company social media handles, they hire someone to do that for them.

Hey, I know you’re thinking that it’s not possible for those big men to hire you… I get you, the chances are rare to be honest, because they hire an HRO company to employ such staff. 

But what if I tell you that there are people who are ready to pay you like their Facebook manager? Yes, I have worked with different people and I have earned by helping them to manage their Facebook pages, you too can!

Interesting right?

Here is what you need to do:

Go to a freelancing platform, set up an account as a social media or Facebook page manager, and start sending requests to those in need of your service.

I recommend freelancing platforms like FIVERR and Upwork, check the two websites and search for “Facebook page manager”, you’ll be surprised to see the amazing results.

4. Affiliate Marketing

This is one of the ways most people make money on Facebook. Affiliate marketing is almost similar to influencer marketing. The difference between the two is in payment: you get paid upfront to promote a certain product or service as an influencer. 

With affiliate marketing, you get commissions for each product or service bought or used via your affiliate link. Many brands today also utilize affiliate or partner programs to publicize their products and services.

One good reason you should utilize affiliate marketing is that there is no limit on how much you can earn. Unless the product or service goes out of stock.

If this is what you can do, check these top 10 affiliate programs and how to build a successful affiliate marketing business.

5. Join & Monetize Facebook Creator Studio

Content creators! Facebook got something for you. If you’ve not heard of Creator Studio by Facebook, well…you’ve been missing out.

Facebook Creator Studio can be likened to WordPress for blogging. It comes with various tools to help you create quality content. But that’s not all. You can make lots of money by monetizing your Page. Oh yes! You need to have a page with good engagement.

Aside from influence marketing, you can also make money on Facebook by joining the Facebook creator studio and of course, you need something that will make you eligible for this, before you can be approved for its monetization.

You need to be a content creator, I mean you should have been doing something that keeps people engaged. some content creators earn some dollars through this facebook monetization.

According to Facebook, these are the few ways to monetize on Facebook using the creator studio, they are through;

  • Branded content: This is when you collaborate with brands by publishing content that features the brand.
  • Subscription groups: This is when you allow only those who pay you to join your Facebook group
  • Fans subscriptions: You fans can support you by donating some funds every month
  • In-stream ads: This lets you earn money on Facebook by displaying short video ads in your videos

This is very interesting, but you need to work hard and build an engaging audience. Also, you need to meet Facebook monetization policies.

6. Make Use of Short Links Services

This method won’t generate a lot of money but it’s a good way to earn passive income. It has to do with URL shortening services.

If you’re offering a free product or service… let’s say free download for instance. This method will compensate you for using short URLs. 

Followers who click on such links may be shown a few seconds AD after which they can skip ahead to the main page. The more people who click on your shortened URL, the more money you make.

You can google search for paid link shorteners and apply for as many as possible, and get some links that people will love to read, shorten them and share to some Facebook groups (but don’t over-do this to avoid spamming and Facebook hates that, you might be restricted for a while).

7. Utilize Facebook Instant Articles/Audience Network

Just like Google AdSense, the Audience Network from Facebook allow publishers to earn money from their articles or videos. This method of making money on Facebook is quite similar to the one above.

As a blogger, you can take advantage of instant articles and make money as you publish posts. 

Vloggers are not left out! They do make the most money as people tend to sway towards videos. If you create lots of authentic and entertaining videos, go ahead and get a page if you don’t have one already. 

8. Facebook Marketplace or Facebook Shop

It’s sad to tell you that this feature is not available in Nigeria, China, and some part of the world. Facebook marketplace allows its users to have an online store on Facebook for free.

You know how online stores mean; you can upload your products and sell. That’s exactly what the Facebook marketplace is meant for. 

9. Fundraising

Just like we have crowdfunding platforms, where you can raise money for a cause, you can also do that on Facebook. Go your settings or menu area in your Facebook app and you’ll see it there. 

I don’t need to explain this much, it is straightforward.

CONCLUSION – How to Make Money on Facebook in Nigeria & Beyond

There you go 10 ways to make money on Facebook. 

Recap: A recent study carried out by Statistica shows that Facebook has over 2.7 billion users worldwide. Out of which 1 billion of those are active users.

Almost everyone is on Facebook these days. Research even shows that people spend more time on social media sites than any other site in the world. 

So what stops you from utilizing this medium to make money?

Why should you start a fashion blog? If you are a fashion designer or someone who’s just passionate about fashion, you can let people know how skilled or passionate you are, through fashion blogging. Not only that, but you can also eventually make money as a fashion blogger through some monetization strategies I’ll be revealing soon.

I don’t want to bore you with excess intro here, let’s jump quickly into why you’re here. But before then, let me introduce you to blogging in case you’re new to this.

What is blogging?

Not to mince a word, blogging is all about writing and sharing of information using the available internet-based platforms. For instance, I blog on this website. You can say, I share information on this website and that’s why you can be able to read this right now. 

Someone who writes a blog is referred to as a “Blogger”, I’m sure you’re aware of this. But what you don’t know is how you can also start blogging and make money from it. 

So, if you’re venturing into fashion blogging, you’re going to share information within the range of fashion (you can even decide to start your own fashion blog with a micro-niche).

With the basic meaning of blogging or fashion blogging in mind, you may be thinking that;

Is Fashion Blogging a Lucrative Venture?

Yes, fashion blogging is profitable; you can make money with your fashion blog, get more connections, become a brand ambassador and as time goes, you definitely create your own fashion brand or company.

I will show you some ways you can start making money with a fashion blog right in this blog post. But now, let’s talk about where you can start your fashion blog.

NOTE: This blog post is quite long for new readers (about 2,500 words), you need to be patient enough while reading to enjoy the juice in it and, maybe you should bookmark this page so that you can continue reading later.

What is the Best Platform to Start Fashion Blogging?

According to what works, you can set up your fashion blog using:

  • Instagram
  • A website.

Those are the two top platforms that you can use. Let start with each, then both of these platforms.

Can I Use Instagram to Start Fashion Blogging and Make Money?

The answer is YES, you can start a profitable fashion blog on Instagram because Instagram is one of the most-used social media platforms in the world, with hundreds of millions of people using the platform every day. 

You can post pictures, follow up with your favorite celebrities, watch funny skits, and much more. But one thing that you might have not paid close attention to, is that money can be made on Instagram! A lot of people have gone from zero to 7-zeros in their bank account through Instagram.

You too can build a brand on Instagram, and here, we are talking about building your fashion blog on Instagram.

There are many successful fashion blogs on Instagram, but I will show you one.

Check out FashionNova on Instagram: FashionNova sells clothes but they make most of their sales on Instagram but posting beautiful pictures of their clothes and using models to show how beautiful their dresses are. And from that people can easily buy on Instagram.

If you paid close attention to what I’ve said earlier that blogging is all about sharing information, that’s exactly what FashionNova is doing on Instagram and it’s working out for them.

We also have some successful Nigerians who blog on Instagram such as TundeEdnut, GossipMillNaija, Instablog9ja, and many others.

To cut the long story short, you can start a money-making fashion blog on Instagram. Here’s how;

How to Start a Fashion Blog on Instagram

  • Create a new Instagram account with your desired blog name
  • Choose a micro-niche in fashion (explained below)
  • Upload a good logo, write a catchy description about your blog
  • Go to Facebook and create a new page with the same details used in your new Instagram account
  • Go back to Instagram and go to settings
  • Change your Instagram account to “Business Account”, you’ll be asked to link a Facebook page
  • Link the new Facebook page you just create
  • Start posting nice stuff
  • That’s how Instagram blogging starts!

But to start a better fashion blog, you need a website that you can host on your own domain and hosting. But the question here is this;

Instagram Vs Website: Which Is Better for Fashion Blogging

Having your own website for blogging is better than using Instagram for some reasons listed below:

  • Instagram is not your own! And you can be suspended or hacked anytime
  • You need large followings to make it on Instagram
  • You have more ways to make money with fashion blogging on a website than Instagram
  • You can write/explain thoroughly what you want to show or tell people
  • Your website is more brandable and presentable than your Instagram link

With those points, let’s talk about starting your fashion blog on a website.

To start a blog generally, you need what is called a CMS (content management system). We have some CMS or blogging platforms such as Drupal, Wix, Shopify, Joomla, Drupal, and so on. But the best CMS or blog publishing platform is WordPress!

We’re going to create your fashion blog using WordPress and later, I will show you 5 ways to make money as a fashion blogger.

How to Setup a Fashion Blog on WordPress

Before you can start any blog, you need a domain name, hosting, and theme. IF you have these 3 prerequisites, you can have a blog. Here is how to get started;

  • Choose a Good Micro-niche

“Fashion” is an industry or niche on its own and it’s very big (or broad as a niche). If you want to focus on everything “fashion”, you’re going to get tired very soon. So, you need to choose fashion micro-niche.

This is what I mean by a fashion micro-niche: You can be blogging about 

  • kidswear
  • men wear
  • women wear
  • celebrities’ trendy fashion
  • Cosmetics
  • And some other micro-niches in Fashion

Don’t try to be everything, just choose a micro-niche, and being a fashion blogger will be easier and more organized.

  • Buy a Domain name and Hosting

A domain name is like an address to your house and it typically costs around $10 to $15 approximately depending on where you’re buying from. An example of a domain name is www.gbolamedia.com – which you can easily use to locate my blog anywhere in the world.

Then, you need to buy a hosting plan, which is like a house where you can store your files, your contents, and everything you need to have in your blog. It costs around $8 to $50 per month ($96 to $600 per year) and this also depends on the hosting company you’re buying from.

But you’re just starting a blog, you don’t need a very expensive hosting plan at first.

But you can get a hosting plan for $35 per year and domain name for just $8 with Namecheap hosting company here.

If you’re fast enough to click on this Namecheap link, you can definitely get a hosting plan for just $16/year approximately, and that amounts to just $26 per year after checkout.

The next thing after buying a hosting and domain is to connect them and install WordPress right away!

How to Install WordPress After Purchasing Hosting and Domain Name

These settings depend on where you bought the hosting and domain. But generally, you need to do the following:

  1. Login to your hosting account with your username and password
  2. Go to your Cpanel
  3. Locate “Softaculous” to Install WordPress
  4. If you don’t see Softaculous, simply click on WordPress icon
  5. Set your admin username and password (make sure you save this data)
  6. Finally, log in to your new WordPress blog using yourblog.com/wp-admin
  7. Start setting up your fashion blog!

If you bought your hosting and domain name from Namecheap, these two resources can help you install WordPress with ease:

So, let’s start designing your fashion blog and the next step will show you how to do that.

  • Get a Clean WordPress Theme

Getting a WordPress theme is like getting everything you need to decorate your house beautifully. The interior and exterior design of your house depends on what you chose, the same thing applied to have a clean and beautiful WordPress blog.

There are thousands of free WordPress themes you can use to design your fashion blog. But these free themes are not advisable because some can kill your website and some others might not serve you the beautiful blog you need.

If you want to buy a WordPress theme, you can check out the best Theme Marketplace, ThemeForest. The price of these themes varies and you can get for as low as $30. To be sincere, 70% of themes cost $59, and 20% are more expensive than that while 10% are below $59.

If you think you can afford it, go to themeforest.com, click on the WordPress category or click here and search for “Fashion Blog”, the website will show you all WordPress themes related to fashion, preview them and choose the one that wins your heart.

After getting your theme, download it and the next thing is to install it. Here is how;

Installing WordPress Theme in Your Website/Blog

  • Login to your WordPress Admin dashboard
  • Click on “Appearance”, then “Themes”, Then “Add New Theme”
  • Clicking on “Add New Theme”, you’ll need to upload the theme you purchased 
  • Finally, click on “Activate”
  • Start customizing it.

But if you can’t do all these technical stuff, you can hire a web designer to do it for you.

  • Work on your SEO. This is very important if you want to gain more traffic from Google and other search engines
  • Write consistently. This means that you should publish a new valuable blog post at least, 3-4 times in a week
  • Promote your blog posts on social media, run adverts to gain traffic and work on quality the most
  • Grow your Facebook page and Instagram to build good followers
  • Monetize your blog to start making money as a fashion blogger. This is the last thing I’m going to discuss here

How to Start Making Money from Your Fashion Blog

Note that: The More Traffic On Your Blog = The More Money You’ll Make!

As a fashion blogger, you have different ways of making money with your blog. Here are they:
