OP how much have you made from those sites? I challenge you to show snapshots if your earnings. Nobody will come here to talk balderdash about what they have not practiced.

I was a special invitee to the Elance conference in VI some years back. I can tell you that I am sure u have not made up to $1000. If you have show us or tear down this thread.
stagger, you a more than this as an old timer on here. I do not expect this from you!

I have an academy where we teach people mobile app programming. The least you can earn with this is $3,000 a job. MINIMUM! How about that for a start?
I know this is where it will end. So you were derailing another person's thread in order to advertise your stu.pid Academy. Rubbish.

Well I don't have too much to say, for newbies please don't let yourself be carried away by some lies being posted here. The truth is it's not quite easy making money via freelancing especially when you identify as a Nigerian. It's hard work like any other job you get IRL. All this people posting several thousand dollars am just wondering which client will offer a Nigerian that much. Good luck everyone.

Someone challenged me here to show proof if earnings. I posted one. Another one said na lie, nobody can pay a Nigerian that much. I now show a pic of dollars withdrawn from GTB on my way to Sheraton Abuja to change them, they say I am proud.

You do one, dem go talk. You no do, dem go talk. Success attracts jealousy.

You need to take a chill pill bro. Success is a journey, not a one day thing and if you see success, don't be jealous. Simply ask humbly how you can replicate it and it will be shown you.

stagger, you are not willing to help with laid down guide. It's very obvious. You have avoided answering questions from what I noticed. You were asked what service do you offer but you avoided that. What skills can one acquire, list them. You also avoided that one as well.

Then what are you willing to help here?

You are more than this stagger. You have been on Nairaland since I knew you over 3 years ago.

Help make this thread valuable... Help lifes bro and show people how you did it!

If you avoid this as well then I can only assume you want people to send you PMs so you can charge them high.

If that's the case, state it clearly here and I am sure people will take you up for it!

They can never show you their profile... Na to come here they open thread as if it's that easy even as a Nigeria. The truth is that those that succeeds there don't use Nigeria profile. The aim of starting this thread is to sell something as time goes on. Like I said nobody will buy anything from you guys.

Someone actually called my academy a stu.pid academy. What I refused to mention is that a prominent guy from my place who is trying to eradicate poverty actually sponsored 20 students from his place to get the training so they are not paying a dime. I have actually been on this for 2 years now.

I am talking to a foreign foundation to give me a grant to train some folks for free. So my friend, you see why I said I will NEVER sell an ebook or market anything to anyone here on Nairaland. The place is filled with all kinds of fools. One person who contacted me about this last year and who I gave so much information for free did not even bother to send me a mail saying thank you. I will put up his username once I go through my mails.

Forgive my language, but the idi.ot who called my venture a stupid one is part of the reason I will not contribute anything further to this thread. Afterall, I found my own way myself with no help from no one and certainly not from people like darmochy1.

The starting point is: what skill do these guys have? If you have no skill you will be earning peanuts!

But if you have real skills, employers will come with thousands of dollars begging you to do their work. I made $50,000 from a Latvian company on Elance in 2013 alone. That company alone paid my rent that year and a jeep I bought.

You have to be on top of the food chain. All this talk about profile building without skills is a waste of time.

I even give 10k, 20k jobs to students because I am too busy now and work with few high paying companies now. There is even a php developer I know based in Lagos who has done more than 700 jobs on freelancer. When u reach that stage jobs will be chasing you, not you chasing $2 per 500 words peanut butter change.

Proud i.diot, I thought you said you won't come back to the thread.

You need to learn from the likes of Y modulus, Surveycash, ladywriter, justi4jesu and other well-meaning nairalanders like the OP who are bringing their knowledge to the table and blessing people in the process.

Now ask yourself, what meaningful contribution have you made to this thread. People have been asking you for one thing or the other with no response but to introduce a ridiculous Academy.

All you have is your pride which will consume you one day. Ignorant fo.ol

well, I have known stagger for long and I know he is not lying about his earnings. He is an oldtimer bro people do not know why he act the way he does.

This is Nigeria and people don't release ATM info anyhow for certain reasons. One of which is because they suffered so much through thick and thin to get there and because when they needed help no one helped them. Some People don't appreciate good things that they get easily. I am a witness to that.

I single handedly helped a nairalander on here and showed him the way and guided him. He never showed any sign of appreciation. The worse was when it got to point when it seem like was about to make as much as €x,x x x (mid 4 figures). WhenI finally saw he true colour, I left the thread. Like Stagger said, the person he helfped never said thank you. So I understand what it feels like and I am sure it added to why he acted the way he does.

As for the mumu wey dey say whites don't pay Nigerians I pity you and you claim you make money online? I am sure you make naira money online and in small margin.

Shiiits is happening everyday and every minutes... Moutains are being moved and rivers are over flowing.

I personally have earned a lot of dollars online and even almost closed $5000 deal a few weeks ago but the stupid idiot tried to play smart by using a different email start renegotiation.

I played along just to see where it will end and they offered $800. I declined and never contacted.

I want to move from that line of business because it doesn't fit my kind of need anymore for certain reasons.

as regard ur post concerning people reaction to stagger attitude on this thread, I want to shed some light to the root cause. if a teacher teaches in such manner, no student will have knowledge understand the teachings. I expect him to offer his own advice instead of asking op about how much he has made so far before opening thread. op is only trying to share with a fellow nairalander what has worked for him. not everybody on nairaland are ungrateful.
