Advertise Your Products Online In Nigeria
To succeed in any business, you must really do a lot of advertising.
We have previously written a post on how to advertise your products for free in Nigeria, now we want to teach how to advertise your products in Nigeria, especially if you have some money to invest. Advertising in Nigeria requires a lot of wisdom, especially in targeting.
It doesn't matter what you're selling, products or services, if you want to profit, you have to tap from the unlimited internet audience in the country.
Now, there are a total of 98 million internet users in Nigeria, that is around 30% our audience as at December 2017. That was a few months ago (I wrote this post August 2018).  The statistics would have increased a few figures above that now, and so to benefit you have to tap into this audience.

Advantages Of Advertising Online

Advertising online has so many advantages and we have spoken about that in a previous article. Some of the benefits include:
- They are more affordable: With well targeted advertisements, you can be sure of spending the least amount of money with the greatest reach. On the top newspapers in the country, a page of advertising will cost you around N1 million while a post on the top blogs normally  are below N100 thousand. At the end, people who do not buy the newspaper don't get to see the ads but people who don't visit the blog that day may get to see the post later.
- They are well targeted: If you're looking to advertise car tyres, you are very sure the best people to reach out to are on the automobile websites. Advertising on newspapers will cost you a lot of money whereas reaching people who will not need your products. You can also target by sex, age, interests and demographics.
