Choosing the right Blogging platform
Blogging platform is the place where your blog or website is to be hosted or built upon. Though in this section everybody is with various preference and at the same time there are still the best among other blogging platforms.
Before you start a blog/website in Nigeria, one of the thing you must look up to first, is the host you would love to use, why you would love to use it, and how much is your budget to run the host wither you will need more capital or not.
Many new bloggers has chosen to blog on free and unreliable blogging platform a (hosts) today not because they don’t know the best thing to do but because they have less capita. But i will advice every beginner to start like a pro as it will cost you very little capital for purchasing only the hosting plan and domain name. (always think Big, Start big, and earn big) that’s just the simple principle
Am not here to recommend or compare any host . You are free to choose any host you wish but in whichever host you choose try to know the good and bad aspect of it, So that you will not fall victim for bad unreliable hosts.

My advice Always run from free hosts they seems very unreliable as free things don’t last long
Writing Quality Contents
After or before setting Up your blog or website, You should know that blogging means sharing of ideas and knowledge and the man that top is the man that shares relevant ideas.
If you create valuable articles people will never seize to visit your blog or website. the audience in your circle love what’s new so be ready to give them what they need and surely you will be heading towards the railway of success without much struggles.
If you know you can’t provide relevant articles that people will love to read then i will suggest you don’t even venture blogging. Don’t be scared o even if you aren’t a good writer it’s not about been good but been relevant.
with your less writing skills you can still become a successful blogger in Nigeria
Visual Contents is relevant
Have this at the back of the inner most part of your mind that most of the people reading your articles don’t understand your mere writing but they learn from the images on your articles while others learn from Video rather than just reading the contents.
If you are a good video Shooter you should think of adding videos to your contents. and always learn to add images to your articles (similar images related to contents) if you have every chances of blogging Visual , then do it.
Here are some visual materials
NOTE :You can embed someone else videos to your articles provided they are related to your inscriptions. But if you can make yours that’s even better.
You may Need Help:
Consider seeking help from others who knows better before and after lunching a blog/website in Nigeria. You can also hire writers , graphics designers , Video makers , and others if you have that much capital but if otherwise be the case then learn how to do things yourself and make everything free on your own.
Even with that no body is still perfect so seek advice and help from others when needed.
Learn SEO[search engine optimization]
SEO is the key to every successful online business , and i also i know quite well that you can hire someone like me to set up a good SEO for you but yet there is still every need to learn it on your own.
Even after setting up your SEO , there are still some SEO rules or tactics you will need to apply on your own e.g when writing new articles, the SEO expert who helped you to set your search engine optimization won’t be there to tell you how and where to use your keywords.
So my advice to every beginner is ” Don’t rely on the seo that’s someone set for you rather go online to learn in details about SEO , practice it , study it, do it and achieve it yourself as that will be more reliable.
The reason i always recommend you learn it yourself is never because i want you to use your capital wisely but because after learning it and been the expert of your own , people will hire you to do some SEO job for them and you know that’s an income source that can not be altered having known how to do it forever.
Study Your Audience
After creating your website it’s time to start building your community. Now in this community , you are the King and as a king you must care about the affairs of the people only in that will you be called a good king.
Where are your audience coming from? what do they love reading most ? these are some analytics you will have to do about them to know what’s best to offer them.
Your audience are your repute, your community , your Target, your money and your everything online so know how to manage them properly. Tracking your audience ,you can use the Google Analytics in doing that.
