MMON: Please tell us a little about yourself

fisayoFAS: My name is Ayodeji Sanyaolu. I’m a web developer and an SEO consultant. I’m the guy behind Secrets of Entrepreneurship.

MMON: When did you start Making Money Online and how did you make your first money online?

FAS: I started making money online in September 2010 as soon as my site started running and I make money through Google AdSense.

MMON:When starting your site, did you ever expect it to grow to where it is today?

FAS: Well, with the state of unemployment in the country and the interest people have developed in gaining knowledge on how to become a successful entrepreneur, I was confident that my blog would grow but not sure to what extent it would.

MMON: You’ve been in the internet space for some time, how much of an impact have you made?

FAS: I launched my blog late September 2010 and I’m happy to see that more of my traffic comes from search engines which means I have some answers to what people search for on entrepreneurship and maintaining a startup.

MMON: How have you incorporated social media into your site?

FAS: I created a Facebook group and a Twitter account so I could reach out to more people once I publish new posts.

MMON: In your opinion, what is the single best way to monetize a blog/website/membership site/forum etc?

FAS: There are so many ways to monetize an online business, but I don’t think there is a “single best way” to do it. It majorly depends on trying what works best for your blog.

MMON: What would you recommend for a new blogger, that wants to create their own brand/presence on the internet?

FAS: New bloggers should to be “very” passionate about what they want to do or write about. Making money online requires being diligent in delivering what’s useful to their audience and they also need to endure when results are not coming as the expected. Thus my formula is; Passion + Patience + Persistence = Success.

MMON: Any recommended resources for people looking to bring their online business to the next level?

FAS: WordPress is the best CMS on the internet for blogging. Read and learn from other successful bloggers like Darren Rowse of, Adesoji Adegbulu of , Bamidele Onibalusi of etc…

MMON: Do you have any big announcements or upcoming projects you’d like to tell us about?

FAS: Currently, i run and Secrets of Entrepreneurship. I’m also working on launching with other two friends and also, working on building an online community for Secrets of Entrepreneurship which is located at where we plan to share ideas in solving startups related issues and so on.

MMON: Great stuff Fisayo. I’m gad I had this interview with you. I must confess, i’m inspired to unleash my potentials in entrepreneurship the more. Keep up the great work!
