Why Is Adsense The Only Revenue Model For Nigerian Bloggers? by olyrayy(m): 8:57pm On Jan 12
Good day. One question that has been bordering me is why most Nigerian blogs use adsense as their revenue model. For instance, in a lot of foreign blogs, they create their own products and sell. But in Nigeria, I haven't seen any blog that sells its own product.

There might be blogs like this that I've missed. If I have, please do tell me. Thanks.

I wonder why you're bothered smiley Well, I'm a Nigerian blogger and I currently adopt any monetization strategy you can think of. I have blogs that generate income via Adsense, and I have affiliate niche sites. I also have a blog on which I sell my own products.

That said, I think most Nigerian bloggers opt for Adsense because it's seemingly easy. All you need is good traffic, and you're good to go. Affiliate marketing and product creation are not so straightforward, but the good thing about both is that you don't need as much traffic to make decent income from them as you would for Adsense

Less Work if your site meets requirements except traffic.

No payment delays except for offenders!

It's very appalling. And the AdSense pay now is very very low. How can you get over 4000 page views and a CPC gives you 0.01$? That's free advertisement.

AdSense is the simplest way of monetizing your blog and the best part is that it needs little or no maintenance.

Then secondly, the simple but painful truth is that most of you Nigerians don't buy stuff like online digital goods that much.

Some are afraid of using their cards online, some are still languishing in ignorance of how easy it is to buy things online whereas most are just looking for free content or products!

So most Nigerian bloggers are just stuck with AdSense, kind off...

You can also monetize your blog through sponsored post whereby people pay you to put up posts on your blog for them but that means your blog must be an already well established or well known blog before you can monetize through that way.

Simple.

Considering Nigerian traffic, they're the BEST.

If you're a sales person, wouldn't you sell your product (in this case, ad space) to the highest bidder?

AdSense is the simplest for them because they find a way to use black hat against Google. so most times it's free money, no SEO guru will focus on AdSense alone considering the poor quality of Nigerian traffic.

I also think AdSense pays less than CPA, Aff marketing, information product marketing etc AdSense should just be an addition

Adsense is the easiest ads network to meet their requirements.

But recently, because of unscrupulous Nigerians attitudes, Adsense has made it difficult for Nigerians to be accepted into the Adsense network.

Re: Why Is Adsense The Only Revenue Model For Nigerian Bloggers? by Silvermoney: 8:18am On Jan 13
It depends on what you want as a blogger (gosh, I hate that hackneyed term blogger; I prefer to describe myself as an online entrepreneur or information marketer).

For someone like me, I am obsessed with building passive, almost lifetime income. A kind of 'set and forget' content monetisation system wherein I can decide to travel around grooving with friends and family doing absolutely nothing blogging related for even one whole year and yet money would still be rolling in residually from my website(s). I think Adsense is still the best model for achieving this, as long as your website niches are in the evergreen category rather than news, entertainment and other similar current affairs niches that require daily posts and updates.

In a sense, you can also say that affiliate marketing (Amazon, Jumia, etc.) is a passive income model too. But one thing I've experienced that is is annoying is that if you set some targeted affiliate links in your blog posts, in no time, the links would become seemingly dead due to the annoying fact that the product has run out of stock. You then have to start looking for another seller within the online marketplace (Amazon, jumia, etc) that sells the same product and building a new link to redirect to their store. Sometimes you wouldn't even find another seller that has the product currently. And in many cases since my narrative or blog post is crafted around that particular product, it means that that post is almost useless from an affiliate income perspective. I've experienced this a lot on Jumia (for my local Nigerian affiliate marketing) and on Amazon too, and it eliminates the 'set and forget' long term passive income criterion that I am totally obsessed with.

Adsense is one of the most trusted ads network for publishers, but Nigerians have made difficult for newbies to enjoy too

At www.brainnewsradio.com we make atleast 20-60 dollars daily, and we are been paid at the end of the month without delay

Also we use many other services on our portal to generate cash too. Like Amazon, Jumia affiliate programmes, music promotion etc.

It's more straightforward I think.
Just like Freelancers use Fiverr, Freelancer and other established platforms paying the 20% fee rather than setting up their own site.

It's not easy on the net mehn, you have to establish a name or links before you can self venture.
