1. Building professional websites for clients
The commonest way to make money in web development is by developing professional websites for clients.
Professional websites are not cheap. They demand lots of skills and creativity. So, if you possess the skill, you will surely make good money.
When I talk about professional websites, I'm not talking about the common WordPress websites most people can design. I'm talking about websites that demand good coding skill.
Websites like bank websites, school management websites, transport and logistics websites, airline websites, money-making/donation sites like MMM, ecommerce sites like jumia and konga, bitcoin management website, etc.
That's the skill I teach my students; If you learn how to code such professional and money-spinning websites, you will make millions.
To make millions quickly by developing professional website for clients, do the following;
Don't work alone, work with many people
If you're advertising your skill consistently and you're good at what you do, you're most likely going to get more contracts than you alone can handle, so you need to work with other professionals to meet up.
I've told you before that the major reason why I went into teaching web development is to raise professionals that I can work with.
If you've been following my WhatsApp status for long, you would have noticed that I hardly advertise my web development services; I, instead advertise my online web development training.
If I should concentrate in advertising my web development services, I will get so much contracts and I won't have time to handle them all.
Though I partner with some people but the partnership would have been smoother and more flexible if I'm partnering with my students alone.
In fact, right now, I'm already getting contract than I can handle even though I'm yet to start advertising.
When the first batch of my students graduate, I will have more hands to meet up with more demands, then millions will flow.
So, you must not work alone, you must partner with others to meet up.
2. Build/Sell templates
If you want to make millions in web development, you must use your spare time to build templates of popular websites.
Make a list of websites people demand most often; sites like ecommerce websites, business websites, school management websites, bitcoin management website, Church management websites, etc.
Start building a sample of these websites. Don't wait until you get a client before you start building sites, build samples and keep. Showcase the samples to potentials clients.
The easiest way to get a client pay you a handsome amount is to show them great samples of the site you've done.
If you have already-made samples of websites you've done, you can complete a one-month project in few days.
Imagine getting a job of Three hundred thousand naira (N300,000) and completing it in three days or a job of N1million and completing it in one week. If you have templates, you can.
Apart from showcasing the template to get clients, you can also sell the templates and make good money.
There are so many web developers who would prefer buying already developed websites instead of starting from the scratch.
The beauty of it all is that you can sell one template to unlimited number of people.
Imagine selling your template to over a thousand people at, let say, N100k each. Do the maths. Its N100million. If you sell it at N50k, you will make N50million.
You might argue that it will be difficult for one to sell a template to up to a thousand persons.
If you're extremely aggressive with marketing and you're targeting the whole Africa and beyond, you will surely make even greater sales.
Let me however, be moderate. If you sell the template to 100 people at N50k each. That's N5million.
So, you see, it's lucrative.
3. Make millions from your vision web app
Having studied the history of popular apps like Facebook, YouTube and even our own paystack, I realized something similar in their stories.
The founders had a vision to solve a certain problem in the society. They used their programming skill to develop an app to power their vision.
They sourced for fund and promoted their vision, finally their vision blossomed and here they are reaping the proceeds in billions.
You can do the same. If you're serious about making millions in web development, you should consider developing an app or apps that can solve problems of millions of people.
You should strategize to raise fund to promote your app. With your sound knowledge of digital marketing, you will make a headway.
There are lots of problems in Africa. If you can develop apps to solve one or two major ones, if your app is well promoted, you will surely sell.
It might take years but when the money starts flowing, it flows in billions.
Jack Ma, the founder of Alibaba Group said that they got zero profit from Alibaba.com for over two years. They continued to spend, to strategize and to promote.
Today, Jack Ma's net worth is 42.5 billion USD
If you can create and consistently promote an app that solves problems of millions, you will end up making billions.
I will, surely, create such apps with my students in the future.
4. Make millions Managing Websites
Another way to make good money is by managing people's websites. Having developed lots of websites, I realized that most people just own a website and leave it dormant.
Some people assume that the moment they own a website, the website will start generating money for them. If they were not able to get client through the website, they tend to abandon the site.
Some will continue to maintain the site without earning from it.
You, as a web developer and digital marketer, can come to their aid. You can propose to manage their websites and generate revenue for them through the site.
If you're good in digital marketing, you will do well here.
You can manage a website effectively by; adding more features to the website, blogging about the product promoted in the website and directing people to the website.
You can also run social media ads and direct traffic to the website.
You can come up with so many innovations based on the kind of product the website is promoting.
To get as many people as possible hand over their website for you to manage, you must be good with writing proposal, presentation and objection handling.
Remember, you should not work alone. If you can't write a good proposal, hire someone who can. If you're not good with blogging, hire someone who is good at it.
If you don't have money to hire these people, partner and share the proceeds with them.
Imagine managing 20 websites. If you're earning, let's say N50k per website in a month, you will be earning total of N1million in a month.
Listen, don't assume that people will not pay up to N50k monthly for managing their website. If you can generate the revenue, they will be willing to pay even more.
If you're good at what you do and you know how to target people who can afford to pay you well, you will excel.
One of my great plans is to employ my students to develop and manage websites in Africa and beyond.
5. Write a book on web development
If you're good with writing, you can write books on various aspects of web development and sell. Even if you're not good with writing, you can still write.
One of the easiest ways to write a book in this era is by compiling your social media post and converting them to a book.
I've written up to ten eBooks. Almost all of them are compiled from my social media posts.
This particular lecture, HOW TO MAKE MILLIONS IN WEB DEVELOPMENT, will soon be compiled into a book.
Sometime ago, I lectured on HOW TO RAISE MONEY TO PAY FOR EXPENSIVE COURSE. I will soon compile it into a book, as well.
If I decide to sell the eBooks, I will make money. Even if I decide to give some of them out for free, I will still make money from them.
Either way, it's a win win!
Many people who wants to go into web development were asking so many questions.
Questions like how to make money with the skill, how to get paying job abroad, how to get started, the programming languages to learn.
So many questions are seeking for answers. So, if you can write books to answer those questions, many people will be willing to buy.
When I started promoting my Web development course in my online institute, I realized that some people who need ICT skills, don't know how to go about it.
I decided to write a book titled, WEB DESIGN BEGINNER'S GUIDE. I also made some videos to show people how to start the development of a simple business website.
If you've not gotten the book, click here to have it....

6. Teach People
If you're good with teaching just like me, you can consider setting up your own academy. There is money in teaching especial in our time where social media has given us the privilege to teach unlimited number of people without meeting them physically.
I have students in almost all states in Nigeria. Most of them have never met me but they believe so much in me.
You know why, I'm a gifted teacher. I'm naturally compassionate. When I teach, my intention is to make you heroic. I want all my students to prosper. Please don't see this as bragging, teaching is truly my area of strength. I've been teaching since childhood.
One more reason why I'm excelling in online training is because I try my best to be honest. Some online trainers are fraudulent. They take advantage of the fact that their students can't easily meet them physically and defraud them.
Listen, if you truly want to succeed as an online trainer, you must be very straight-forward.
Few days ago, I got a call from a prospective student, he explained to me that someone wants to sponsor him but he wanted me to inflate the cost in order to get more money from the person.
Though, his reasons for trying to inflate the cost seemed very reasonable but I found it difficult to dance to his tune, as I didn't want to be dishonest.
Thankfully, I was able to come up with a straight-forward and smart way to handle the situation without being dishonest.
He was shocked at my honesty and extremely impressed at my smart idea. Wisdom and honesty will lead you far.
If you're born to teach, build an online academy. Physical training is dying fast. It will continue to die.
Nigerian economy does not favour physical training especially if you're not capable of investing millions in it.
However, I must warn you. If you're not good with teaching. If you're not the patient and compassionate type, don't teach. Exploit other aspects of web development.
Teaching is like a calling. Not everybody can do it well.
I will be calling it a day today.
