Nigerian internet users are expected to double by 2021. In terms of numbers, there are currently 104.4 million users. When comparing figures from 2020 to 2021, we can see that internet usage has climbed by more than 22% this year. Those figures indicate how social media is used by internet users.

Thanks to this amazing growth, many Nigerians decided to get involved in different types of online businesses. In this sense, if you have a website or blog and want to promote your product, the best option is to use Ad networks. 

Ad networks are platforms that connect publishers and advertisers to create campaigns across various social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Furthermore, it is regarded as one of the most successful platforms because it produces superior outcomes and allows you to grow organically.



Commonly, the well-known tool to gain more traffic on your website is Google Adsense, which allows publishers of Google content network websites to display ads in text, photos, videos, and interactive media that are relevant to the content and audience of their sites. Google is in charge of tracking, classifying, and managing the advertisements on your site, which are based on your content and that of your visitors. Advertisers who wish to promote their products create these adverts and pay for them.

However, it is important to note that some business owners have voiced serious concerns about this platform, including login troubles, the fact that the website takes a long time to approve your content, and persistent advertising that causes clients to have a negative experience.

So, if you think that Google Adsense doesn’t satisfy your expectations, here are some alternative tools that could help you to monetize your Nigerian blog or website: 

1- MediaFem
