Linda Ikeji does not, in fact, need the money of any rich man, political party, or drug leader. You have to believe it: she makes all this money from blogging, from good old, consistent, hard-charging, talented, break-the-news-and-the-gist-first blogging.
To convince you and shut this down for the very last time, we will do the maths for you.
On Thursday, 11 August, we sat down – all of us together – and did an analysis of Linda’s income in just one day, on just one site.
There are five basic income streams that are visible to the eyes on the lindaikejisblog.com homepage.
1. Sponsored posts
In one day, we counted 20 sponsored posts on Linda Ikeji’s site. TWENTY. And for good measure, we went back two weeks. That’s the average. 20. Linda Ikeji’s posts go for 50,000 each. Now, because they already so fairly priced, she doesn’t give discounts on this amount – no matter the bulk, at least for the larger market. Last two weeks, she updated the cost to N55,000. But for the sake of argument, let’s go with N50,000.
That means that in just ONE DAY, last Thursday, Linda Ikeji made N1 million naira. And she makes this minimum N1 million EVERY WEEK DAY. Without fail. That’s N20 million naira per month, ONLY from sponsored posts.
