How We Make Money
Our website is monetized in the following ways :

- Display Advertisment
- Sponsored Content
1. PRODUCT SALES :
Currently , do not sell personal products , however , we help online merchants such as Jumia & Konga sell their products and we get a certain percentage of each sale we refer (Usually between 1 – 12% of each sale). This system is called “Affiliate Marketing“.
Please be aware that buying with our affiliate link DOES NOT COST YOU EXTRA CHARGES. The price of each product is still the same. The only thing is that Online Merchants will pay us when you buy a product on their website with our affiliate link.
These are the merchants we are affiliated to :
- Jumia Nigeria
- Konga Online Shopping
2. DISPLAY ADVERTISMENT :
We are part of an advertising program called “Google Adsense“. This program allows different advertisers to place banner ads on our website without contacting us directly. Each time you click on an ad , we get a certain amount of money which varies per click. This term is called “Cost Per Click (CPC)“.
In addition , we sometimes get direct advert request from Advertisers , and we place their ads on our website. If you’re an advertiser looking for more publicity for your brand , feel free to partner with us.
3. SPONSORED CONTENT :
Sometimes , Advertisers pay us to publish their content on our site. This system is called “Sponsored Content“. See an example of a sponsored content below :
What We Spend Our Money On
Just like every business , we have some bills to pay. Here is what we spend some of our revenue on :
- Email List
- Content Development
1. WEBHOSTING :
We are a well trafficked website and so we need a powerful web server. Our files are hosted on A2 Hosting’s Turbo Server which costs $24.99/month. That is $299.88/year.
2. EMAIL LIST :
We use Mailchimp to send the latest updates to our email subscribers. We’re on a pay as you go plan which varies.
3. CONTENT DEVELOPMENT :
Content development involves a lot of process that cost money. We spend some of our revenue on paying for internet connection , fueling the generator when there’s no power supply , amongst other expenses.
Are We Profitable?
Yes we are! Despite our huge expenses , we’re still a very profitable business.
We are constantly researching more revenue methods. Right now , we’re looking for ways to completely eliminate banner ads from our website without decreasing our monthly revenue.
This page will be updated whenever we implement a new strategy.
