This Post Contains The List Of Websites That Makes More Money Than Linda Ikeji’s Blog In Nigeria
Before dropping this post, I know it is not proper comparing a Blog Site to other web application like Discussion Forum, Classified Sites, Online Directory, Online Store an so on.
But I only want to prove a point, trying to let you know that there are various other online business to venture into and make even more money. In Nigeria today, everyone wants to be a blogger, and its very annoying whenever someone comes across a mushroom blog, or discover an already researched information on another blog (copy and paste blogs). If the blogging stuff seems hard then please try another option.
8 Websites That Makes More Money Than Linda Ikeji’s Blog In Nigeria
Nairaland is the biggest discussion forum not just in Nigeria but in Africa. It is also included in the top 20 forums in the world. Owned by Oluwaseun Osewa, a native of Ogun State, here in Nigeria.
Nairaland was developed with a open source application called Simple Machine Forum (SMF) version 1.2, though now outdated. The forum was hosted since 2005, now with a total registered member of over 1.7 million, not to talk of guest, and over 3.3 million topics. What else can I say!
With a total of 42 categories, Nairaland spread its advert banners on each on the categories, the prices of its adverts defers from one category to another. I am yet to talk of AdSense both in the site and on its app. All I can say is that Nairaland Forum is a money making machine for Oluwaseun Osewa.
Naij.com is a Nigerian news and entertainment portal. Currently ranking the 5th most visited site in Nigeria, ranked just after Yahoo. It was lunched in 2012, owned by Vital Laptenok, from Belarus, who lives in Minsk, Belarus.
No need to talk much about him, I just don’t like it when our resources is moved to a foreign country, he is now competing with most Nigerian news and entertainment bloggers, but I think his is better in the game.
With over 16 million unique monthly visitors.
Naij.com earns most of its income from Google AdSense and also Direct Advertisement for may big companies in Nigeria. Naij.com is among the first site I discovered that uses “Push Notification”, I believe its one of the reason it got to the level it is today.
You will be deceived when using web tool like Alexa to compare OLX with other sites, Alexa has always ranked OLX above 50 in Nigeria, this is so, because most OLX user prefers to make use of the app rather than site. OLX was launched in Nigeria in the year 2012.
It is currently the most successful and the popular classified site in Nigeria. Most of it users especially its publisher visit it countless times on daily bases, to check on their ads.
OLX generate more income from featured post as well as AdSense, its also obvious that they received commission from sales of certain ads like real estate.
This is one website I won’t like to talk much about because of what they are involved in, but just know that they make so much money you may never imagine. To compete with a site like bet9ja.com you must be very rich and ready to spend, having in mind that chance of being outstanding is very slim.
All their income comes from their customers, they don’t monetize their site, rather they have affiliate system which helps to promote their site.
Founded by Tunde Kehinde and Raphael Afaedor in 2012, though there was information that the co-founders sold their ownership in 2014 to Nicolas Martins and Jeremy Doutte. I really don’t know much about the new owners of Jumia.com.ng.
Jumia is the most ranked Ecommerce in Nigeria, according to Alexa ranking, for a long time it has been in a position less than 10 in Nigeria. Jumia is currently a dependent name in many homes, they have wide range of customers all across the country. They generate income from profit they make in selling good.
Naijaloaded was hosted as far back as 2009, and currently, it is one of the most popular information portal in Nigeria, loaded with News, Musics, Videos, Entertainment and many more. It was built with WordPress, and currently using a theme called “Admag”. Owned by Makinde Azeez, one of the most successful bloggers in Nigeria.
Naijaloaded has an average of 90 million page views per month according to Alexa.
With this amount of traffic you can imagine the level of income.
Just like Jumia, konga.com was founded in the same 2012 by Sim Shagaya. Konga is the second most ranked online store in Nigeria after Jumia. Also like Jumia, Konga generates income from profit and commission made on sales.
This is the online version of Vanguard newspaper, they are well ranked, always below 15th position in Nigeria Alexa ranking. They are old in the game, and knows there way around it all. They are trusted by many in giving accurate information over blogs. They are involved in lot of direct advertisement and also use other avenues in monetization.
