Is Linda Ikeji Really Making Enough Money To Buy A ₦500M Mansion?

It is no longer news that one of the most popular blogger in Africa, Linda Ikeji just got herself a brand new mansion in Banana Island which is one of the most expensive neighborhood in the world. But what is now news is how people are going about discussing it on the social network, especially on Nairaland.

Comments I read on Nairaland today really got me sick, in fact sick to my very bone. These comments only confirm one thing, the level of ignorance that exist among Nigerian internet users. These sorts of mindsets are the reason Naij.com guy came all the way from Austria to takeover Nigerian internet news space raking million of dollars without any major challenge because none of these bullshits believe anything is working on the internet. None actually realize how much that site is earning monthly.

Have you, the wise ones of Nairaland ever asked yourselves why Google is one of the most profitable company in the world with a plain web page and a search bar? Google is earning billions from that simple web page because billions of people are using it - so is Linda Ikeji.

Now let me explain these to my fellow Nigerians from a professional blogger's point of view. And as someone who is currently building some of the most serious online platforms in this part of the world.

The Linda Ikeji Mansion in Banana Island

1. Linda Ikeji Blog is a very big blog and deserve to be earning such amount of money. A blog that generate over 50million page views monthly should be making close to $1million monthly if well and properly monetized.

2. There are thousands of blogs that make more than $2million monthly. Example: Mashable.com, Searchengineland.com, smashingmagazine.com, TMZ.COM, TechCrunch.com, Wikihow.com, eHow.com, etc. LindaIkeji blog is not far from this category of bloggers and news medias.

3. You guys should quite using Seun of Nairaland to judge Linda. Seun's Nairaland is one of the most poorly monetized website I've ever seen on the internet. Seun to me is a very opinionated and arrogant human being who is just wise in his own eyes and has ignored all useful advice regarding his website monetization. So, Seun is not making much money from Nairaland despite how big the site is, simply because Nairaland is not well monetized. So far, he has refused to accept nor act on all the useful and wise advises people have been giving him for free.

4. Web platform is one of the best property you can have. Linda is having 67milion Nigerians right on her very palm of hands. You wouldn't know how much that means until you build a web platform like Linda's blog and have those numbers - it means billions in advert revenue.

5. Stop being deceived by how much or how little you are earning in your working place. Serious bloggers and other web property owners are earning more than the company where you work right now.

Constative.com is projecting $200,000 monthly revenue within the next 24 months and base on our current growth rate, we may surpass that in record time. Hope none of you will shout blood money in the next 24 months.

Now to answer the raised question. Yes she can afford a ₦500m mansion in Banana Island or anywhere in any part of the world for that matter. Not only she can afford it, she can also maintain it comfortably.

She deserve every good things that has come her way because she has worked hard for it. Linda, you deserve the enjoyment that comes with hard work because only us knows how hard it is to build serious platforms online. When you create value you will be rewarded with wealth - that's what is happening to you.

To some who says the money comes from prostitution, you can send all your family into prostitution and see how much they make.

To some who says it's money laundering, you can resign your current job and take up money laundering business and see how much you make.

To some who says the house is not paid for, you can walk into the Banana Island and occupy one of those buildings there on credit/mortgage.

But the truth is that Jumia, MTN, GTB, Konga, Guiness, Cadbury, Coca Cola, Fidelity Trust Bank, Glo, Etisalat, Nigerian Artistes, Government Agencies, Political Parties, DSTV, Wema Bank, All the banks in Nigeria, and hundreds of other companies and businesses, all of them are somewhere laughing at you guys, laughing at your ignorance because they know how much they cough out every month advertising on Linda Ikeji Blog.

It can only get better for her and us.

Thanks

      What you do to start growing the community is to create value. You don’t just visit people’s website, highlight their hard work and paste it on your site and expect your community to start growing. No, it wouldn’t take long before the owners of those content bring you down. Except you are already big like Nairaland, nobody want to visit a copy and paste website, people want original stuff that add value to their lives.

      Before you build a site, you need to be clear about what you want to do with it. The type of value you want to add to your audience and how your site plan to address their problems. You need to be expert sort of in your niche. Your niche must be big enough to make you money. You must be unique in other to compete, else, you’ll just pass as one of those numerous sites out there making up number of sites on the internet. Instead of just building a forum for all topic under the sun, why not pick a particular niche? You can build a forum for iPhone users, gadgets, fashion, general tech, pets, etc…

      You are not a “Netpreneur like me” until you start doing what a netpreneur like me do, creating original content. The first thing I noticed when I got to your site was my article sitting there with just: culled from Constative.com. Is that how to give linkback? Don’t you see how the link use to follow any copied content on Nairaland? Pls amend that asap and copy no further! Cheers!

    This article is really insightful, you have written well and addressed the matter just the way it is. I must commend you for doing great work here, you always leave me with reasons to re-visit this blog. More of God’s grace as you’re soaring higher in your business/chosen carrier.

    Let me use this medium to congratulate you on your upgrade to constative, it’s so amazing and reader friendly.
    I started blogging sometime last year after reading some articles related to blogging. I had to stop along the line when I discovered I needed getting some things right for me to excel in the industry, it all came as a result of some pieces of advice I got while reading and your wealth result contributed a lot to this. Many thanks to you.

    I was using blogspot before, however, I registered my custom domain name few months ago and I am preparing to move into full-fledged blogging. I actually came to visit wealth result in order to get some tips on reliable but highly cost effective host company that I can use for my blog and fortunately was redirected to this great place called constative. I would really appreciate if you can recommend some of these web hosting companies to me. Also, I would find it favourable if you can be there for me whenever I need you for direction on this journey. I’ll forever be grateful!

    Once again thank you for the impact you are making. God bless you sir.

      Thank you Yinka, nice to have you here and nice to hear you are taking your blogging more seriously. There are lots of perfect hosts at perfect prices out there. One of them which I may recommend to you is Arvixe Host. You can start with their share package and upgrade on demand. Constative.com is hosted by Liquid Web on a ‘Dedicated Server’ but that’s an enterprise hosting and it’s quite pricey. You can also consider liquidweb shared hosting, Arvixe is just perfect as well. Thank you!

    Dear Linda,
    I must confess that your story did move and encourage me a lot. Your personality and your achievements as a young woman at your age is worth emulating.

    I am a married woman of 38years, blessed with 4 children, a public servant, a middle staff with a ministry.

    But I don’t feel fulfilled because I have soft spot for fashion designing which I would like to go into as a profession, but I don’t how to go about it because of my career as a secretary in the ministry. Please help me with some entrepreneurship advice because for me to learn fully, I may have to go on a leave of absence without pay from work. then how do I sustain my finances?

    Mr darlington, i understand youre trying to prove a point, but the figures you produced out of thing air are beyond ridiculous. 2 million dollars a month? come on now, i know nigerians are gullible but thats a bit of a stretch, as at december 2015, Micheal Arrington is the richest blogger in the world and he makes about 500k -800k a month so your figures are totally absurd. if you meant in a year i wouldnt disagree but do your research before misleading people. Thanks

      Do you own a serious web property? Have you charged for advertisement before? Do you make money at all online? And you are asking me to do research. Michael Arrington I know sold his blog (TechCrunch.com)in September 2010 to AOL for $40million and worked as an employee till 2011 when he left AOL to found his venture capital. Here we are talking about 2015/2016 and you are bringing up old blogger who stopped blogging on his own as far back as 2010? LOL… because you went on the net and read some outdated blog posts you now think you know a thing? I am a serious player in this industry and should know far better than you on this.
