But as an intending (new) blogger, you have to make a decision whether to go into lifestyle blogging or niche blogging. A niche blog is one which focuses on one aspect of life.

All articles and discussions on the blog concentrate on this area of human endeavour. Before going into blogging, you must try to find out what your intending readers will like to read because if your blogging does not focus on their area of interest, your blog will so boring and will not attract reasonable volume of traffic.
There are many profitable niches for blogging in Nigeria and this piece will open our eyes to top 10 profitable niches for blogging in Nigeria.

Number 10: Technology.
This comes at number 10 of my top 10 profitable niches for blogging in Nigeria. It is not uncommon these days to see columns in newspapers dedicated for technology.
Technology comes in the form of autos (cars), mobile phones, computers and its accessories, and other technology gadgets.
Technology focused niches are profitable in Nigeria but that area seems untapped because they seem to attract only the male folks.
Ladies naturally like mobile phones and as a matter of fact they are the ones behind the popularity of BlackBerry phones in Nigeria.
Therefore, technology niches are profitable niches for blogging in Nigeria but anyone going to technology should be willing to read a lot of foreign articles and do a lot of research because technology keeps evolving.

Number 9: Food
This is another important niche for blogging in Nigeria and comes in at top 9 on the list. Speaking of food, food related niches can discuss classes of food, how special delicacies are made, etc.

This kind of blog will be popular with ladies and have restaurants and hotels paying to do advert on it. This is an untapped potential in blogging as most Nigerian housewives spend a lot of money enrolling in catering schools just for the purpose of learning how to cook.

Number 8: Health
This is a delicate part of writing which most people are interested in. Good knowledge of your health could mean there will be a possibility that you might just live longer and healthier, thus reducing frequent visits to hospitals at old age.
In most national dailies, there is always a dedicated column for health. This underscores the importance of healthy living in our everyday lives.
It is often said that a healthy man is a wealthy man; perhaps this explains why Nigerians take their lives seriously. Such blogs discuss diseases and their cures, modern research in medicine, and general opinions/views and challenges of medical practitioners in Nigeria.

Number 7: Fashion
Most Nigerian youths are crazy about fashion and modelling as they have now become a norm especially amongst the youths.
It is not uncommon to see a magazine discussing just fashion – what’s in vogue? Every Nigerian girl wants to be a fashion model, and to achieve this they read magazines that discuss fashion – what to wear to impress, how to wear it, what to wear it with and where to wear it to.
These are issues fashion fully discusses, and fashion comes in at number 7 on the top 10 profitable niches for blogging in Nigeria.

So, education related niche rated among the top 10 profitable niches for blogging in Nigeria.

Number 5: Sports
Most Nigerian youths really love sports especially football. Sport related niche is a blog that discusses all issues in football, sprint, basket ball, wrestling, boxing and other sporting related activities. A common trend among Nigerian youths now is online sport betting. This is a good example of how sport is taking over everything Nigerians do with their money. So, sport is very important in people’s everyday lives, and sport comes top at number 5 at top 10 profitable niches for blogging in Nigeria.

Number 3: Politics
It is obvious that many people are coming alive to their environment unlike in the past when people hardly had time for politics.
During election campaigns, many Nigerians tend to keep up to date with events in political news via blogs.
Some blogs are designed specially to discuss the policies of government and they always have high traffic of visitors because of high interests of many Nigerians.
Many Nigerians seek to know more about about government policies which determine who they vote for in future elections.
Therefore, blogs that are designed to discuss all political happenings tend generate high traffic, and it comes in number 3.

Number 2: Relationship
Emotional matters matter to many people.
It is not uncommon to see many bloggers write about how to win the heart of a girl, how to impress your Prince Charming, how to seduce a girl, sex related issues, meeting new girlfriends and boyfriends (hook-ups), how to mend broken homes and hearts, how to win the heart of girl who had a bad breakup, etc.
These are very popular issues which most Nigerian blogs discuss and they tend to generate heavy traffic. Some blogs are designed to allow registered members hook up and start dating.
This could be in form of blind dates as well. Relationship focused niches come in at Number 2 of top 10 profitable niches for blogging in Nigeria.

This is the most profitable niche for blogging in Nigeria today because it focuses on how to build a career in areas of human endeavour.
They also advertise new job openings and the links through which to apply for them, how to prepare for an interview, how to impress interview panel, how to structure a good CV, how to boost your employability chances and how to create opportunities for yourself and for others.

This niche seems very profitable because of high rate of unemployment in Nigeria. Statistics has it that about 40 million Nigerians are unemployed, so to think that a quarter of these people are online on one blog or another trying to access the available white-collar jobs explains why vacancy related career niche generates high traffic.

How to Make Money Online Selling Advertising Space on your Website or Blog

Published

on

By

In this guide, I’ll show you how to make money online by selling advertising space on your blog or website.

There are so many ways you can make money online from your blog. One of it is from advertising for other businesses.
What is an advertising space?

An advertising space is a strategic location on your blog or website that you dedicate for advertisements. This could be in any of these locations;

(1) at the sidebar of your blog
(2) Above the fold
(3) below the fold
(4) header or
(5) footer (6) in content.

Again, the ads may be in the form of (1) banner ads or (2) link ads.

What you need to start selling advertising space

Before you even think of making money by selling advertising space you must have the following:
1. A blog or website (with at least 1,000 unique visitors daily). If you don;t have a blog yet,

2. A good email and a smartphone

3. Bank account that you will use to receive your advertising payment.

Start Selling Advertising Space on your Blog or Website

1. Setup an advertising page
Create a landing page for your potential advertisers. This is a page where you tell your potential advertisers about your audience and its potentials. Here are important things you must have on your advertising page:
(1) welcome message
(2) Blog or website traffic (daily visitors). Make sure you display Google analytic report and be ready to share same with your potential advertisers if they need it.
(3) Audience interest
(4) Who should advertise
(5) Benefits of advertising on your blog or website
(6) Locations of advertising space and their benefits
(7) Cost of advertising for each advertising space (using a currency of your target advertisers). Make sure you don’t charge too much. Start small and grow up gently. Many bloggers and website owners drive away potential advertisers by inflating their advert rates.
(8) Your contacts
(9) Payment procedure (and return policy if any)
(10) Feedback procedure: this is what you’ll do after the payment is made.

Caution: Please be honest about the information you present about your blog or website. That is, do not tell the potential advertisers that you have 10,000 unique visitors daily when you don’t even have 1,000.

2. Find Advertisers.
Make a name-list of your potential advertisers.

I will suggest you list of 1,000 potential advertisers on your website.
Make sure you study your audience very well and be sure it will be okay for your potential advertiser.

Also, study your audience’s interest so that you can make a proper presentation to your potential advertisers.

3. Make contact
Begin to contact your potential advertisers one by one through email or phone call. Be polite when presenting yourself and your business.

See a typical example of a good email you can send your potential advertisers…

Hello ABC,
I represent (— blog or website name —) and I’m writing to offer you cheap advertising on my blog/website.
I understand stand that you manage a private university and my blog/website will be your best place to get potential candidates.
My blog or website is about school news targeting secondary school leavers who are eager to enroll into tertiary institutions. Luckily, I have up to 3,000 unique readers daily.
Since they always find information about admissions, I believe many will like to enroll in your school.
The advantage of advertising with us that its affordable and promising.
Kindly send me your school info to get started. Please visit our advert page for details.
Thanks
Xyz

After this, pray for positive response while you contact another potential advertisers.
I’m very sure that that if you contact 1,000 potential advertisers, 10 out of that will respond positively and that’s the beginning of business.
Selling advertising space is one of the best ways to make money from your blog or website.
What do you think?

You need to know how to blog! Don’t worry, you will learn how to blog the right way. How to start a blog? Blogging is hard. No, really, finding a good theme can be challenging. You can write whatever you want to write, but not every theme will be profitable.

There will be problems, and you have to know how to solve them. The first step in writing a good blog is to think about the right theme. You need to find something interesting yet new and unique. Sounds hard, right? And don’t make the same mistake like most of the beginners do. Don’t try to follow the path of other successful bloggers. It won’t give you anything. Look what they did, what was wrong and right, analyze it. But do not try to recreate what they were doing.

The secrets of creating your own successful blog Already found what you want to write about? Now it’s time to learn some basic rules on how to blog successfully.

The following tips will help you with creating your own blog.

1. Be passionate

In order to be successful in your field, you have to be passionate about what you are doing. Don’t think about the money or fame – your only motivation must be your interest in your topic. As long as you are passionate about it, you can become successful. You will learn how to make money with a blog eventually.

2. Act fast

Don’t wait until the time comes. Be active! Find a field that has potential but is not popular yet. Then try and work with it. Starting a blog is difficult, but you don’t have time to be afraid!

3. Be optimistic

Every field has its ups and downs. You need to remember that there may be problems on your path. But they won’t last forever so cheer up and face your success! Create your own blog and stay optimistic about it. After all, an unsuccessful blog won’t be the end of the world, right?

 

4. Be persistent

Don’t give up. As we mentioned before, there will be problems. But giving up is your last option. Back in the days when people just started blogging, it was tough to find any audience. However, the bloggers were persistent and worked their way up to success. You can do that too!

 

5. Be unique

Being unique is one of the main aspects of a successful product. Create something new, useful, and the people will come. Your content has to be noticeable. Think about it as art. A lot of good artists can draw great pictures but are all of them famous? No! Famous people have their style that is recognizable. The same goes for blogging

6. Be consistent

Consistency is great when it comes to blogging. Try and post something every day or every two days. When you are frequently posting, people know what to expect. Consistency is the main thing that will help you to make money with a blog in Nigeria.

 

7. Be devoted

Dedication is one of the most important aspects of blogging. You need to be devoted to what you are doing. Think of it as a job, not like a hobby that you can forget in a few weeks. You need to spend a lot of time in order become successful, but it’s worth it.

8. Be professional

Create your style, logo, name. Think about how it will look like in the future. You need to look professional so that people will trust you.

9. Be in trend

For example, if you are talking about fashion, then you have to know the latest news in the world of fashion. But besides that, “being in trend” means that you have to be up to date with technology. Mobile apps are becoming more popular among users so consider creating a mobile app for your blog, so more people will read it.

10. Serious business

We talked about it before – think about your blog like a job, not a hobby. A blog has to be considered as a typical business with all its specs. Then it will be successful. But don’t register a business name on your first day of your blogging! First, find the theme you like, develop some confidence in it, find the audience. Register it only when you are sure of its success and potential. The tips are pretty obvious, right? There is no huge science when it comes to blogging. Everything is simple. You just need to think and be ready for new challenges. And these tips are useful for basically any project you want to start. So get inspired and create something unique! Who knows, maybe you will become the next famous blogger?
