Why this book?
A friend introduced me to a website that lets you share links and make money. The website was called NewOgle (@newogle)
Every day, I would go to his house to borrow his Nokia 6300, log on to NewOgle and spam my new Facebook friends with links. I managed to convince some of them that they could make money from the website by inviting others and sharing links to products on the website.
The website had a dashboard for tracking your earnings and you can find out how many users you have invited to the platform and how much you have made. I could swear I made over $500 at the time. That’s over N180,000 in Naira today. Too small, I know. But all I did was share links and invite a few friends – I did not pay a dime to start with and I didn’t need to pay for adverts to get the links out.
Then one fine morning, the website stopped working. I would enter the URL in my browser and it wouldn’t load. My friend and I were hopeless and frustrated. They just packed up and… I laughed in Finnish, because I knew I was finished.
Fast forward 1 year later, I found other legit platforms and started making money.
This book is a compilation of websites that truly pay on the internet, how to earn from them and then some tips to help you spot the ones that won’t pay cash or even waste your time.
