5 Truths About All The “These Skills Can Earn You 400k A Month” Posts by Kinute(m): 3:38pm On Aug 05
You have seen it all,

Start this, start that, and you would earn 400k or 700k a month and after a year, you would have a home in Banana Island sipping margarita with Davido and Linda Ikeji.

You have seen posts like this more times than you have seen your face in a mirror.

The question is why then are you not making that 400k a month already? I mean these posts make it seem so easy.

The way these posts are written, It's like you have half a head and a brain full of earthworms if you are not already making that much money.

Now don’t get me wrong;

Is it possible to earn 400k to 700k online, monthly, as a web developer, affiliate marketer, copywriter, digital strategist, content creator, etc? YES!!!

I know this because it is something I have done.

But would you make it in a month or two months or even three months when you start? 80% of the time it is NO, you won’t. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Now here is what is happening;

Posts like this prey on the fact that an average human suffers from the “shiny object syndrome”. (google the meaning if you don’t know, and if you can’t google, forget about making money online), and FOMO; Fear of Missing Out.

Combine this with the get rich quick syndrome of most Nigerian youths and what you have-

Is a long line of people sandwiched together jumping from one idea to another, not mastering anything, yet expecting quick results, while opening every “how to make 400k a month” post, hoping there is something they haven’t seen yet.

This is madness.

There is nothing wrong with these posts in themselves. Some of these posts are legit trying to help you make money.

On the other hand, topics like this are the equivalent of pointing a university to a two years old child and expecting him to become a graduate in 4 years.

And why they fail so woefully is.., they assume so many things;

They assume you are interested in learning a digital skill;

Or that people have the common sense to even research the skills listed.

They assume your personality matches the skills and you can pick anyone and start making money..,

I’ll tell you some truths today;

And you can either take it or use it to start an evangelical ministry,


If you still have it in your head that one can’t make money from online digital skills, I am telling you today to clear that thought.

People make money from dancing online, hell, I even know someone that makes about 300k a month, tasting food. He eats free food and still gets to go home with 300k, like what?

There is absolutely nothing you cannot achieve online.

And if you still choose to disbelief me, Just know your brain needs cleansing, and I have just the right Cele prophet for that.


Now that you know you can surely make money online. It is time to know, not all skills are for you.

Don’t try to do everything because someone said so. Or Jump from one skill to another

Figure out something that fits you and stick to it for at least one year. (some might disagree) but I didn’t even see success in my web development business till after a year.

Sure, there are some skills that might not really be personality-based but I strongly believe your personality and previous skill set can have a direct influence on how successful you become.

You might hear someone say, anyone can be an affiliate marketer, or anyone can be a copywriter.

I’m telling you today, it’s a lie. Don’t fall for that shit.

If it doesn’t fit your personality, you would have a hard time becoming successful in it.


See, no matter the skill you learn, there is one skill you surely need; and it’s how to sell!

If you don’t know how to sell and are not ready to learn, then I’ll give you this free advice, forget about learning any digital skill.

You can have the highest-earning skill today and if you don’t know how to sell it or at least position yourself to be hired, it wouldn’t matter one bit.

Selling involves many facets, It could be networking, paid ads, sending proposals, etc.

Just remember, learning a digital skill is half the plan, learning how to sell your skill is the other part of the plan most people don’t talk about.


I know, I know. You don’t like paying for things, especially not a mentor.

But if you want to go from a total newbie binge-watching every youtube training video like a toddler on breast milk, to becoming a highly paid successful person, then get a mentor or a coach.

Can you still be successful without a COACH? Yes!

But friend, you and I know you don’t have time. And going by yourself can take longer than necessary.

Find that money and pay for a coach.


I am telling you this,

there is absolutely no way you won’t make money online if you have a digital skill people want.

The problem is expecting to make money one month or two months after starting.(except-cue tip 4 above)

So while the time it takes for you to start earning may differ, you should never expect to see results immediately.

If you are not ready to know that skill for the long haul, then don’t start.

If you start, stay till you succeed.

If you are looking to become an overnight millionaire, go and play the lotto.

If you are so scared of being broke as you learn, get a job, and keep learning.


After all is said and done, I know some of you no dey hear word. You still want something that would bring in money sharp-sharp or close to sharp-sharp.

I would help you by recommending only one thing.


I don’t like thinking of affiliate marketing as a skill, I think of it more as a business.

And it is the one thing I am absolutely sure can earn you six figures in the next 180 days if you start now.

I could have said, 30 days.., but let’s just play safe.

Now here is where it gets tricky;

Because I am recommending affiliate marketing despite everything I have said doesn’t make it any less easy or sure.

Like anything;

Success in affiliate marketing depends on the effort you are willing to put in.

But if you give me a Knife and ask me to swear in front of Amadiioha if you can truly be successful with affiliate marketing;

I would gladly do so with a chilled bottle of Chivita to go along.

And here is why I think Affiliate Marketing is the way to go..,

Look around you, everyone you see now needs something.

We are in an information age, my 50-year-old mum says she wants to learn cryptocurrency, your neighbor that weighs 200kg wants to lose weight, Jide wants to know how to migrate to Canada, etc

Even you right now need something you would absolutely buy today if someone walked up to you and marketed it.

Affiliate marketing is basically being that person that recommends products people need and getting a commission when they buy.

I can go into more details and there are a few more reasons why I believe affiliate marketing is the way to go but that is not the essence of this post and it’s already too long.

I’m even surprised you read to this point.

I drop my pen to the court.

No one said it was easy,

but I am telling you today and take it from me.

It is the one skill you can start today and start seeing almost immediate results.(2-3 months average)

Compared to other digital skills, you would need to learn before you earn..,

But with Affiliate marketing, you can earn as you learn.

Affiliate marketing is basically selling other people's products, I mean how hard can that be
Other than putting in the effort needed for you to make sales.

On a side note, (Stop typing the way you are typing) It's a bad habit.

Plus I would no longer reply to anyone that says it is not easy.

Do with the post what you will.

I rest my case.
