Legit Ways To Make Money Online In Ghana 2019


How to make money online in Ghana. The level of unemployment in  Ghana these days has practically reduced the hopes and dreams of its youth. You completed your tertiary education and went for graduation with your relatives having the dream of you being someone great in future (someone who is going to take care of them in their old age). But all you could see today is you not having a job and still receiving favours from your parents. Most understanding parents would not complain  but that should not be your excuse. 

Mostly, the youth with a lot of training try to be creative and start up something on their own which fetches comfortable income for them. But what about you (the one who is not creative and business-minded). This article goes to you and believe me reading this article would change your life and you would thank me for this one day. Let me not bore you with plenty talks. Let's set the ball to making money online in Ghana rolling.

First legit way is Blogging

In this section we will discuss what a blog is, niches, how to start your own blog and how to monetize it. So sit up and enjoy the free ride.

Blog is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries ("posts"). Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page.

Niches are things that focus on a well-defined area. So in relation to Blogs, Blog Niches focus on specific Information that is both useful and interesting for the Audience.

  • Choose the right niche :

A blog is not a blog without content so once you’ve set your blog up you need to focus your attention upon creating useful content. What you choose to create will depend a little on the topic that you choose to write about.

The key with creating content is to make it as useful as possible. Focus upon creating content that changes people’s lives in some way will be the type of content that people will value the most and it will help people to feel like they know, like and trust you – which is really important if you later want to make money from your blog.


  • Keyword Planning :

Don’t waste your time blogging on stuff that are not worth writing on. Keyword Research helps you know which terms people are searching for and their competition. Use Google Keyword Planner for your keyword research.


  • Traffic :

As a blogger, you need to have a large number of audience. So how can you gradually get audience to visit your blog everyday. Try the methods below and you will get more visitors.

  • Write irresistible headlines
  • Use Long-Tail Keywords when you do Keyword Planning
  • Get Social. Share your blog contents on social media like Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, Google+ Communities etc.  to promote them. 
  • Email Marketing
  • Use More Internal Links. Link blog posts to blog post to another blog post.

How  you make money by Blogging?

  • Advertising Income

You can join Google Adsense to start making some few bucks. As your website grows, you’ll find advertisers willing to pay to get exposure to your audience. While you need decent traffic to do a direct deal with an advertisers there are ad networks (like Google AdSense) that act as a middleman and enable smaller publishers to run ads on their blogs.

You can join other google alternatives that are easy to join like Chikita, PropellerAds, RevenueHits, Infolinks etc. Google Adsense is sometimes had to join as a new website with site age less than 6 months.



To put it most simply – affiliate income is when you link to a product that is for sale on another site (take Amazon for example) and if someone follows your link and ends up buying that product you earn a commission on that sale.

There’s more to it than that but this is another great place to start with monetising your blog as affiliate programs are easy to sign up for and if you have an engaged audience you will find they follow the recommendations that you make on products.

The Fourth Legit Way is through Affiliate Marketing

One would ask how does affliate marketing / networking work in Ghana? How do I make money online with Affiliate Marketing? In a simple man's term I will say "affliate marketing is an Internet-based system where you (as an affiliate) get paid for referring sales or customers to another business". 

It’s a bit like how a real estate agent doesn’t own the houses they sell; instead they promote houses on behalf of their clients, and earn a cut of the sale price of any properties sold. So instead of you owning products, you promote other people's products online and when someone makes a purchase you receive a commission for showing the person the product easily.

In affliate marketing we have the merchant, the affliate and the buyer. From what i said above, the merchant is the person or company that creates and owns the product. Now it’s up to the merchant to work their magic and get that person to buy. If the person does decide to purchase, then the affiliate that sent them to the site earns a commission, which is a percentage of the product’s sale price. Easy, right?
