|How To Reach An International Audience Blogging. Help! by flames007(m): 6:01am On May 24|
Successful bloggers please i need your help and mentorship.
Blogging can be lucrative, no doubt - if you know what you're doing. Five years ago, if anyone one told me that i would be in the blogging business, i would have laughed. But now i'm working to launch my first ever blog and my goal is to reach an international audience, eventually, with it. I'm going to be blogging in the automobile niche btw.
So my question is: is it wise to want to target an international audience starting out? If yes, how would you advice to do it? If not, how can one make it by targeting only Nigerian markets?
Inputs will be appreciated.

I am also in the automobile niche.
My advice is that you target global audience. Just provide good content that is not specific to Nigeria. It is also possible that some of your posts target global audience and others target Nigerian audience. That is fine too.
Start with AdSense advertising in mind. It will help you to create quality website and content. When you get approved for AdSense, ads placement is very important. Seek help on this if you don't want to go through the learning and waiting time to earn substantially. Great content beats every other thing though.
Also, start with good CMS, good theme, good and original content and good search engine optimization strategy.
If you want to launch and start making money without going through many "learning from mistakes", get someone who has been in the blogging business to mentor you especially on SEO aspect.
I wish you luck.

Blogging in Nigeria
Unlike every other business , Blogging is one of the most profitable business that the economy recession does not affect , NCC recorded over 105 million active Nigerian users on the internet , which means recession does not affect blogging , regardless of how broke Nigerians are , we will still visit the internet .
Just like every business once you lack proper understanding and strategy, you end up going the wrong way .. Before i continue I'm a Web consult | Business Strategist | Business consultant | Web developer | Web manager | CEO of Kennie Tech , get in touch with us via kennietech.com.ng
Okay , Let’s continue , You will Agree with me that we have many bloggers , over millions , but only few succeed , why ?? because they understand every necessary thing needed , Mind you , Blogging is just like any other offline Business, If you are not ready to spend & investment then I'm sorry to say "You might be one of the , I want to sell my blog" Type of bloggers.
I [/b]can not guarantee how much you will be earning per day, But I can assure you , you will recover back your initial capital within a short period of time depending on your plans ..
[b]Analysis of how to monetize your blog
1) Google adsense
2) Affiliate marketing (Depending on your niche)
3) Member subscriptions
Now , you need to blog for money , that is why you must think in a way others are not . Think like it’s a business .
According to AdSense , Nigeria is one of the country with the lowest CPC , Nigerians are not really favoured when it comes to Adsense ..for every click on your adsense account from a Nigeria User you might end up earning ($$0.01 - 0.07) But talking of countries like USA , UK , south Africa , Canada .. You get as low as ($1 - $10) depending on your niche , keyword ,search visibility , i know you are getting confused , You can call me for better explanation +234708394605nine
Now here is a strategy from me , oh before i forget "I'm Business Strategist | Business Consult , i can raise your dead business all you need to do is get ready to spend"
Be prepared to Spend on Ads , trust me with a Good strategist like me , you will always get high return in your earning from Ads , Many people just don't really understand how it should done that is why you end not getting the advert impression you wanted , I can help you in running Ads for desired countries, interest e.t.c and be rest assured to get double folds .. So , i can not disclose my strategy here , But a wise person should already get the concept of how you can earn over $50 from AdSense in a day ..
Imagine you have 5,000 Page view daily,
2500 from Nigeria , 2500 from Top country with High CPC from Adsense as a result of our Facebook ads and some other means lipsrsealed not disclosing
Imagine You have 100 clicks from Nigeria (Ctr 1% , CPC= 0.10)
Your total earning should be in the range of ($10 - $20)
Now having 50 clicks from Top country with high CPC (Ctr 1% CPC =$1- $2) that is ($50 -$100 ) Depending on your facebook ads Budget ... I hope somebody is smiling cheesy .. In a day you tend to earn over $60 - $70 provided , ($1800 - $2100) in a month , Now remove your adverts budget , web space fee , other payments , You should be left with at least $1000 as personal Gain ... Mind you , adsense is not the only way of monetizing your blog , But it is the major way ... Other forms of monetization include affiliate marketing , Offline adverts e.t.c , Get prepared to earn over $3000 in all ..
Here is a breakdown of how much you should be spend in setting up your standard Blog
1) Domain - Depending on your extension and country of purchase .. Either you opt in for a Nigerian Registrar or Foreign Domain Registrar , (Just like you know , Anything Nigeria is not always the Best Idea , but preferably they could be managed for a start) So , depending on your financially capability and how well you believe in this business, You can either choose between a Nigerian Registrar and Foreign Domain registrar ..
Talking of Foreign Registrar .Com ($10 - $15) depending on the registrar, I recommend www.Godaddy.com. you can check out their pricing list
Talking of Nigeria Registrar .Com (3500 - 4500) depending on the registrar as well , for Nigeria , i recommend www.whogohost.com
Now , after buying your domain , Congratulations , you are now a CEO grin,
2) Get a WordPress Hosting Plan , like stated above , you have to choose between a foreign Hosting registrar and Nigeria as well (For a Nigeria Hosting plan be prepared to experience downtime , your website might go off for couple of hours without any tangible reason) For a foreign Registrar I recommend www.bluehost.com ($2.5 -$7 per month) depending on your website purpose , I have over 10 websites with them and perfectly fine , for Nigeria , I recommended the same www.whogohost.com (400 -2500)
Incase you need a foreign host , I have a blue-host business pro shared hosting , I can help you host your website for 10,000 - 15,000 per year depending on what your website is about
I can also help you make payment for foreign transactions
3) Development & Design - After getting this two, approach any Good WordPress Develope like me grin , Trust me a professional wordpress designer (SEO optimized ,easy AdSense approval , Mobile friendly ) will charge you nothing less than (#30,000 - #250,000) Depending on what you want, But you can contact me for further details +234708394605nine

Proper keyword research and link-building. Write articles based on searches by the audience you want. You don't write articles and find an audience. You look for what the audience is searching for and produce a better resource than what is available. Of course, this is a slow method.
If you have a good budget, SEM (adwords and co) or Native advertising (Taboola, for instance) can help you get quick audience. This is the fast method.

I want to believe u know exactly what you want to go into because no be beans and dodo.
I think the key here is providing content your audience is looking for. You can join forums, Facebook groups and YouTube to know what type of content ur audience seek and of course to market ur blog
Keyword research is also must and I believe you are grounded in that.
Look for affiliate programs that you can join to monetize your blog
Finally, I will advice u grow balls because u are going to be having sleepless nights with nothing to show but over time, something good will start coming your way.
All the best.

Why start a blog and not a forum that you can retain members and get them to post as well ? If you want to start a forum website like nairaland, I have the software with paystack integration and additional features like marketplace where users can upload ebooks and other digital contents for sale and you as the forum owner will earn a percentage from each sell, you can make steady income as a webmaster just like Seun does by selling your own ad spaces and running google adsense at the same time

Don't buy tlds like .ng or .com.ng.
Those are local tlds, they primarily target locals.
Don't host with a Nigerian company. Get a foreign host. I use hostkoala with with bunny CDN and a cache plugin.
Your post should contain information of target country: you wouldn't be talking about cars and mentioning tokunbo, you are telling Google to show your posts to the region asking for tokunbo.
Naturally, a site that was hosted on a foreign server will get tragic from anywhere in the world. You'll stylishly include your main target country in some posts. E.g if you're writing about baby diapers, you can talk about USA quality control for the diapers.
I currently run a blogging journey I posted in the business section.
