Earning from blog is beyond Adsense and until Nigerian bloggers understand this very reality, they'll still find blogging a dead venture.

I work with an Indian freelancer who manages over 20 blogs (not owned by her), but she has editorial permission and with admin consent.

She publishes over 10 guest posts from me every week and I pay average of $25 depending on the particular blog authority and rankings.

Now, do the maths, if only me supplies up to 10 articles at $25 per article in a week and she also have other clients, how much do you think she makes in a month?

Sir Good afternoon
Please want to learn freelance

When you hear things like don't contact me etc, those are red flags.

Make a video logging into the access bank account showing adsense paid you in naira

https://www.nairaland.com/6480905/blogging-still-profitable

please don't contact me am not ready to share my mail or phone contact

Let me introduce my self : A Graduate from UNIBEN, searching for work after graduation from Lagos to Abuja, spent over 2 years submitting CV. Even tried PH,had to give up.
I recently opened this username for reason, let's leave this story for another day.

I am a seasoned YouTuber for years where I make videos and all sort, earning month to month doing reviews and the rest.



But in the past 2 years and few months I have dived into blogging to test the ground and i must tell you blogging is not dead.
It depends on your approach, there are over 3.5 searches done on Google on daily basis and it's increasing day by day.

I was recently paid few days ago and below is my earnings from a blog.

When you mentioned blogging or blog what comes to the mind of most Nigerians is Linda ikeji the celebrity blogger who just occupies a tiny space or niche , I always refer her as a gossip blogger.
Blogging is far More than that. blogging is broad, from medical, tech, finance, fitness which are broad niche to micro or sub niche like dating, fishing, sewing, swimming, recipes, parenting, cars, motorbike, wine, bear etc. I could list over 200 sub niches.

Here are some comment on that thread






Blogging has come to stay and it goes beyond gist or gossip which linda ikeji popularise.
I earned close to 2m plus this month.

Yes blogging takes patience, a blog should pick up from the 7th month , if everything is done right by the blogger then traffic should be coming in from 7th to 8th month as at the time of writing this post then the peak period should be 24 months.




Most successful blogger are on nairaland and I have contact with a few who i connected with to share some ideas though some choose to comment on thread and shy away from discussion on earnings etc.
There is a guy here whose sitz makes 4000 USD daily. shocked



Linda ikeji blog is not dry in fact she makes millions of naira in a single day from adsense. I can't say how much she earns but believe me she got an insane traffic that can guarantee more than 15,000 USD a single day.. Believe me she might make more than this. Most of her readers are Nigerians in diaspora who wants to know gist back home.

www.nairaland.com/attachments/13440392_img20210424030721_jpegcde9c4890b3d150370bca6286bee8293

I got to know that via some tools, which shows that more people a from abroad gets news from there.



Nigerians are not lazy, Nigerians are great people with best brain only the society and our leaders are making us look dumb.

I know a Nigerian that makes 25k to 30k USD monthly on apps from play store.

You should understand that a sole aim of going into business is not to laugh.. See I don't blog for passion rather for money. That's it




Blogging is saturated.
There is room for everyone. Believe me. Blogging at the moment is not saturated. In fact Google once made it clear that over 30% of search quarries are something that haven't been searched before and over 3.5 billion searches are done daily.


The key here is identifying those searches and picking the ones that are not talk about on any site or few sites. Avoid the most competitive ones as a starter.



To earn high, don't target Nigerians as advertisers in Nigeria are not willing to pay as high when compare with USA, UK, Australia, Canada, etc.
If you get 2 thousand page views daily you can get approximately the payment paid up there.


Picking your fight at the weakest point is your chances of success. Finally Avoid copy and paste



You're a big time blogger and you converted 5 thousand dollars straight up to your Nigerian access bank account?!
At your stage, you're supposed to run a domiciliary account..

But it's fine sha

Nigerian economy isn’t getting any better , last week , a friend of mine was at Sabo to exchange some dollars and he successfully was able to exchange $100 for #48,000 . .
I see many people making enquires one what type of business to do , my advice is , don’t even think of a business you would earn in Naira because the economy keeps getting worse and you would directly or Indirectly still purchase your needs at dollar rate .
If you are looking for an amazing business to start , then I will advise you to go into any of blogging , E-commerce , directory or any online business .

The OP have valid reasons not to share his URL, especially on a Nigerian forum. Many persons are ready to harvest his keywords, dilute his content quality by making several duplicates, etc.

And for real, blogging isn't dead yet, and it's not dying any time soon.

Just going through your content and it look like I am the writer lol.

the flow and everything is what I could write. Most Nigerians think blogging is celebrity blogging like you highlighted. This is because it is where they first heard of it.

For most of us that learned from international space, we know all the sides not known to them. Another angle is flipping the blog for much more money. this your blog that made you $5k can be sold for nothing less than $45-70k if you can maintain that earning for 1 year to 2 years.

Above all, you did justice and I hope they will have the courage to do more research on their own.
