How To Start An Educational Blog In Nigeria - Victorwinners.com by Vickwinners: 5:18pm On Jan 24, 2018
Are you a coach or someone that loves teaching people stuff?

Here's Goodnews for you!

Starting an educational blog in Nigeria that helps you reach out to your audience directly is not only a good thing to do, it's one of the best decision you'll make as a blogger.

Reason is because not only is the educational niche one of the most diversified blogging niches, every single day, there are virgin areas cropping up all over the place in the educational niche.

So as an edu blogger, you have so many options to choose from.

And it doesn't just stop there, here in Nigeria and Africa per se, the educational niche is one of the most under-utilized niches in the blogosphere.

Many people are yet to go in there because it looks less lucrative compared to Entertainment, Tech and other niche areas.

One good thing about starting out as an edu-blogger is that you don't really need to get some Professorial recognition or doctoral degree. All you need is share your expertise with people around the world.

And if done well, you could get to places so many people with doctoral degrees are yet to dream of.

On the contrary, All you need to start an educational blog in Nigeria or anywhere is...

1. Tushing up the necessary skills on the niche topic you choose,
2. Understanding your target market,
3. Getting a business plan and working up your brand…( Yes, you'll want to approach your blogging as business).

You can develop your content and kickstart your online educational website based on your expertise and experience with these steps I mentioned up there.

Yeah. it’s that simple.

In fact you can maintain a daily blog while including a full fledged academic website on the same domain.

It’s simple. To be honest, I think this is even the simplest way to evolve a successful academic website especially on a small scale.

So what kind of an educational blog should you start?

You can start an educational blog focused on any of the niche below…

1. Tips for doing well in school.
2. Tutorial blogs.
3. Blogs offering advice to campus students.
4. Blog to train students on specific subject areas.
etc.
5. Blog for advanced tips on specific scholarly areas...
It's almost unlimited. You can add whatever you want here.

Alright. So below are the step by step process that will help you set up your educational blog.


1. Decide on the niche: Besides those topics I listed up there, there are other niches you can settle for, depending on your goals and purpose of blogging.

So the first question to ask yourself here is why am I blogging?
What do I want to achieve with an educational blog?

If you can’t easily find a reason why you should set up your academic blog, you can ask yourself, is there a particular profitable need in the educational niche that I can fill?

In a situation you still want to go further, you can ask yourself;

Do I have a specific experience or training in this field that can add value to someone else’s life?

By the time you’ve genuinely answered this question, you’ll be able to find yourself a sustainable area where you can focus your educational blog.

2. Domain Name and Webhosting. The idea you come up with from step one above will then guide you as you go about choosing your domain name and web hosting account.

So supposing you want to focus on Writing tutorial for students from a particular institution, you will then choose a domain name that will reflect the niche area you’re focusing on.

This will help you when you’re creating a brand for your blog. And also for Search engine optimization purposes.

Again, the idea you came up with on step one will help you settle for a particular kind of web host.

Depending on the nature of the academic blog you’re looking at, you may decide to use a shared or dedicated hosting.

Also this will help you to decide where to host… If you’re going to use a well known hosting companies like Bluehost, Liquid Web, Smartweb etc or some local web host especially if you’re not doing something serious.

3. Installation. [/b]So after settling for your domain name and web hosting account, you can then move on to choosing a particular Content Management System for your blog.

Although there are a handful of CMS in existence today. And most of them are free to use. One of the most outstanding CMS is still WordPress.

So you can get over to wordpress.org, download the software and upload it on your web hosting account.

Or simply install it through the control panel from your web hosting account.

You can also Install the necessary addons and design your site exactly as you’ll like it.

There are a few walk-through tutorials that can help you through the process as you go about setting up your educational website.

Although if you find the learning curve difficult, you can get help from experts (like Victor Winners Digital) and have them help you set up the site in a few hours.

[b]4. How to promote your educational blog.


There are so many ways you can promote your educational blog and get the words out there both for your intending readers and clients.

One of the important ways of promoting your academic site is through content marketing, that is writing content relevant to the subject matter of your blog in such a way that drives repeat traffic to the site.

There are also many other ways including writing guest blog posts on other established sites.

As part of strategies for growing your educational blog you’ll also need a strong social media presence.

This doesn’t mean you have to be active across all major social media. Instead you can choose a few of those popular social media platform your target audience hangout.

There are also paid promotional services for blogs.

You can use these too. Ranging from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google paid ads, you can choose a social media strategy that suits your blogging goals.
And then you can write a paid promotional post on an established blog with your target audience.

Alright. So like I said earlier, starting an educational blog is a great thing to do because the educational niche is not saturated at all.

There are so many sub niches where you can get to dominate in the educational niche based on your locality.

And you’re going to work! Because the success of your blog is going to depend on you.

With the above guideline, a realistic business plan and hard work on your part, i can assure you, you'll certainly evolve an educational blog that is not only recognized in Nigeria but other part of the world.

Hello there,

It feels great to have you reading this. I trust you know that to be successful in this life, you'll have to live it strategically. And yes, I agree it might be somehow challenging to live it but hey, is that really the challenge?. You know, the challenge might not be "knowing how" but "living the how" and thus, the need to strike a balance between the two.

Well, "knowing how" implies -before anything- the redirection of your subconscious mind to always think of success and to always believe something better can be done and moreso, to explore the different ways of living a strategic life -I'm sorry, the strategies are relative and for that, I don't have the license to give any. Find out what works and strive to make it work for you.

As for "living the how", you'll decide that as well. Yes, it's all about you. But then, I hope the following questions might influence your decision. So ask yourself,

"Who am I living my life for?"
"What am I living my life for?"
"Am I headed the way I really want to go or am I just wandering around?"

Remember, you'd better be distinct!. You cannot keep moving if you haven't moved in the first place and one way to keep moving is by keeping the move.

I know you care...

Cheers!

Creating educational blogs is easy, you can also create a full educational website to offer free or paid courses that will also have a blog, just like skillshare or Alison and the rest....

Some Americans that sell courses online make around $10000 monthly do so.

If you will like to sell courses online, contact me using Nairaland message, total setup time is around 3weeks or less... You will be able to process payment using any of the Nigerian payment processors.
