With the kind of technology and tools available to us today like the smartphone and social media, you can press a few buttons on your smartphone from the comfort of your room and alerts will start rolling in.

Having a website is no longer a prerequisite for making money online (though it is important You owe one) Most Nigerians spend at least 2 hours daily on social media especially Whatsapp chatting and gossiping with friends and family without utilizing its full potential. For some, it is a medium to chat and gossip, while for those who are business-minded like us, it is an avenue to make lots of money. I don’t know why you requested for this post, but one thing I am sure of is that you

want to learn how to make money on WhatsApp using just your smartphone and your brain.

I just want you to have an open mind, assimilate whatever I am going to share with you here and take ACTION. What I want to share with you in this post is a very simple formula for making money, you might even know about it but you have never thought about utilizing it.


  1. A smartphone with an internet connection
  2. A WhatsApp account that can create a WhatsApp group
  3. Something valuable you can teach people to get results.


Building an email list and selling to your list is good. But you must understand that unlike in the abroad, most Nigerians don’t open emails. This is not to say email marketing doesn’t work. But it only makes more sense to go to where people are congregated which is social media. Whatsapp is a good platform to teach, reason being that about95% of the people that have a smartphone has WhatsApp installed in it. True or false? It is estimated that billions of people open the WhatsApp app

How can you make money on WhatsApp?

There are several ways to make money on WhatsApp, but the simplest and easiest way to make money on WhatsApp out of the hundreds of differ- ent tactics is to teach something that can help people get results in a closed WhatsApp group. People are consis- tently looking for ways to improve their lives and they are more than willing to pay you so long as you can help them.

Think about this…

People want to learn how to make money online

People want to learn how to 10 se weight People want to learn how to run Face- book and Instagram ads

People want to learn how to create epic social media contents

People want to learn mini importation People want to learn how to bake cake People want to learn how to get customers for their products

People want to learn how to save and invest.

People have desires for so many things I cannot mention here, and each of these desires can

Be monetized.

So ask yourself; what can I teach people?

One thing we tend to take for granted is the knowledge that we have. We think because we know something then everyone else also knows that same thing. There is something you know right now that lots of people don’t know, and they are willing.r to pay you for it if you are willing to teach them.

I know a guy who charges #5000 to teach people mini importation in a closed WhatsApp group. The last time I participated in the training, we were about 30 participants in the class, you can do the maths and see how much he earns weekly. I also know another lady who charges #1500 to teach goal setting. In your mind, you will say ordinary goal-setting? Yes! Someone is getting paid for teaching others how to set goals.

In 2019 alone, I have trained about 500 people both free and paid class. The least of my class is #3,000, I have sold my training materials on WhatsApp just as I have sold this to you. I have sold several physical products using WhatsApp. I know of a lady who has a drop shipping group business on WhatsApp.

There are different things you can do to earn money on whatsapp.

I have seen people teaching different things on a Whatsapp group ranging from cake baking, sewing, soap making, Facebook and Instagram ads, graphics design, video animation, personal branding, content creation, sales and marketing, book writing and publishing, public speaking, etc.

Whatever knowledge you have can be monetized so long as there is a hungry market waiting to pay for it. So, armed with what you can teach people to get results, you can create a WhatsApp group where you can add people who pay to learn from you.

How to Identify Fake Facebook Accounts

Honestly, I will tell you that Facebook is full of fake accounts and you could be a victim of digital insecurity. As at 2012, Facebook revealed that fake or Bogus Facebook accounts were between 5 to 6 per cent of all accounts, This put the fakes between 40 to 50 million.

This is a high risk.

The accounts on facebook are some- times operated by both human and software accounts. This is not the making of facebook itself as they keep patching and bringing the best security on facebook

You have to understand that there are two types of Fake Accounts. You have Human and Software generated Ac- counts. The software account is a bot operated remotely Via software while the human account is actually a sock puppet account. Sock puppet account is a false account operated by humanbeing pretending to be someone or something they are not.

  1. Bots Accounts can easily be identified as they do not act like humans on facebook. However, sock puppet account sometimes acts like humans but sometimes act more like stupid human beings. You need to watch out closely for this.

The following are signs and tips you can use to identify that someone who sent you a friend request is not really humans or not what he claimed to be. Make sure you watch out clearly for these signs

  1. Old layouts. Check out the Facebook account and wall to make sure it is not displaying the old Facebook timeline. It is likely to be a bot. Majority of the fakes uses the old pIe-Timeline layout.

1 7. Hot Babe or Chick. Truth is that there are bots and real accounts with hot babes. But majority of fake account comes with beautiful and hot babes. Most obsessed males are interested in clicking on photos of hot babes. This is where the bots also take advantage.

  1. The high life made guys. You have seen those photos with beautiful lifestyle, heavy jewellery and all sorts of make-belief success life with photos. Be careful ladies. You are likely to fall as spoiled ladies are interested in already made guys. These have led to some people being killed. Check those contacts again
  2. Few Photo Uploads: Bots or some other fake accounts operated by humans will normally have few photos and occasionally add other people’s photos to make you believe that it is a real person.

2 0. Odd biographies. Some fake account and bots uses very odd or incomplete biography. You need to check people’s biography before you add them as friends.

  1. No message reply:

These are accounts typically not operated and so they do not respond to messages.

2 2. But for human-operated account that is fake, there will be responsible and some will even want to chat with you.

2 3. No Response in Return: Most Bot operated fake accounts will never respond to greetings from new friends.

  1. These bot accounts could like many products and pages up to a thousand per day making you believe the products are in high demand or popular. This is a trick as they use all other bots to do this.
  2. One of their intention of also adding you as a friend is to steal your information or spread malware on your phones or computer, some could be for phishing purpose or to steal your data and information. Be careful.
  3. When you notice any of these accounts, ignore them and move on. You can also block them or report them to Facebook.
  1. Be careful of what pages you like or forms you are asked to fill on facebook as the link could lead you to a phishing scam that could be intended to take your personal information and identity.
  2. Why are you really

on facebook? You need to define why you are on facebook, Different people have different motives for being on Facebook. Some social, others for friendship, some for business and others for bad motives. You need to ask yourself what you want to achieve.

  1. Cut down what you show on your profile: Do you know that sometimes, you signup for some applications and they end up eating your Internet data? You must have been wondering why your data finished quickly. Cutting down what you upload and applications you signup with will also put back that hole you will leave on

your pocket monthly. 30. Who do you add as friends? Most people are interested in the number of friends they have on facebook, It is not important. Having 5000 friends with 4500 fake is not going to do you good. Have real friends on your facebook. It is wrong to just add people you do not know. It poses some risk too.

3 1. You need to check your settings: You need to make some items private and accessible to some of your friends. Your phone number and email should not be public. It is worth spending time looking at your settings to limit your public profile information. You may also be able to restrict some specific friends from accessing some of your information. Identity thieves, sniffers could be looking for this information

3 2. Password: It is advisable that you do not use the same password for your emails and other accounts for Facebook and you also need to be mindful of where you sign in to your account. Some computers have keyloggers that could steal your password in public places.And do not give anyone your passwords

  1. Mind what you post on your wall: Never disclose personal issues and events on your posts. Do not tell people your travel plans, or that you will be alone at home this weekend or that you will be going to another state next week Friday.
  2. Phishing scams must be avoided at all cost: There are attempts to get you to click links on your emails in order to steal your user name and passwords. Never fall for this. Do not click on links asking you to click to reset your password. From facebook if you have not requested. It is better to go directly to facebook site and you will be notified by facebook if there is a problem.

3 5. Protect your mobile device. Be mindful about who might have access to your mobile phone. Someone trying to track or monitor you might install spy monitoring apps to track and tap into your call conversations.
