Affiliate Marketing in Nigeria : How to Succeed in 2019

If you’re a Nigerian,and you’ve never succeeded in affiliate marketing,then you’ll need to relax and read this important article till the end.

These days,it’s very rare to see Nigerians succeed in affiliate marketing. A large percent of them, thinks its impossible and some don’t know how to actually go about it!

If you could look closely,95% of Nigerians are now depending in Adsense for a source of income in their different blogs and when they don’t get an approval message,it feels like someone has really broken their hearts.

They go to the extent of dumping their blog whenever Adsense has continuously and blatantly disapproved their request.

What am I blogging for? They would say!

Affiliate marketing in Nigeria – How to Succeed?

This is one of the most important questions every Nigerian will need an answer to.

Although there are many affiliate programs out there,which they can join,promote and make money.

Yes,there are few fat paying affiliate programs that are NOT accepting Nigerians OR their payment method is not available.

But I’ve always had a trick to overcome these things.

As you all may know,payoneer has become a payment option for most paying affiliate programs and companies and you can easily accept your payments.

As a wanna be affiliate marketer,if you don’t have a payoneer card yet,then you’re really not serious about online business.

Sign-up for your payoneer account here,and you’ll receive $25 for free!

Again,if the program you’re promoting issues payments via Paypal you can either pay an expert to get one for you or connect with a friend to always help you do the withdrawals.

There are MANY Nigerian affiliate programs that are paying peanuts to its affiliates and that’s why,we look out for fat paying affiliate programs that will make us give that big smile even if we referred
just 3 people.

Lets’s discuss more on how you can succeed as a Nigerian seeking to make a living from the internet.

These strategies are unique and working and that’s the things you actually need.

Build Your Email Lists

Nigerians hardly build email lists,and I believe it’s because of the expenses.

It costs from about $10-100$ a month.

If you know the whole features and importance of building email lists,you’ll start doing it right away.

As a Nigerian,that wants to make it with affiliate marketing,you probably need to build an audience.

For you to promote a product,you need a good audience to show it to,and few persons will eventually give in to it.

When you build your email lists,you share your blog posts with them,promotional offers,they’ll click and read it and you’re already sending traffic to your blog where you’ll promote your affiliate links.

When you build your email lists to hundreds of thousands,you don’t have to worry about traffic because whenever you publish, a lot of people are going to read it.

You can get started with MailChimp its free upto 2,000 subscribers and 2,000 is really good. You can register for an account here.

Write Reviews

Another good way Nigerians can succeed in affiliate marketing is to write good reviews of the programs they’re affiliating with.

Below are some of the reviews I’ve written on this blog.

  • FlyWheel Affiliate Program : Earn Upto $500 per Referral
  • GetFlyWheel Review : Is It a Reliable Managed WordPress Hosting?
  • Garanntor Affiliate Program : Earn Upto 30% Commission
  • ClickAdu Review : Pop-Under Ad Network For Publishers

People want to read and know much about the product they want to purchase to see if its good or not.

When people in that category sees your review and they loved it,they can click-through your links and make a purchase while you earn a commission immediately and you can cash out upon request.

If you write a product review without having traffic,no one is going to buy it,so you can work on your blog’s SEO or promote the article on Facebook or any other ad networks with that,you can faster the amount of sales you’ll get.

    1. Hello Emmanuel,
      I can easily relate to that. As a female, I’ve encountered such.

      Even my partner would give my details to its customers to connect and reach to an agreement over a business.

      Although, my male friend is the mastermind of the business.

      We females do have an upper hand in businesses as regards to workflow, that’s why most of these online businesses, their customer care representatives are mostly females.

      I’ll stop here too. 🙂

    1. It doesn’t come from your commission, the company or where he bought the products refunds him, but then your commission has been taken back. Because the purchase wasn’t successful.

  4. Sure joy, most of the affiliate programmes in Nigeria are not really profitable.
    The profitable ones you’ll see will give you stories when it’s time to receive your payout.
    domainking affiliate programme is an example. .

  5. Really good one here Joy, Lately I’ve been doing a lot of research on CPA marketing the only problem now is Clickbank and Maxbounty account is difficult to open here in Nigeria.
    Anyways keep up the great work love what you’re doing here

  6. Nice Miss Joy Okoro. You actually made it clearer, but do you know that blogging for affiliate programs aren’t the best way to get started even?

    I think it’s just better for follow what i call, pillar-and-cluster content marketing. It’s yet another way to remove your blog from sandbox to gain the initial traffic required for any kind of monetization.

    All the same, thanks in a bigger way for chunking out such content. You tried my dear

  7. Hiya! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My weblog looks weird when browsing from my
    apple iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able tto resolve this
    issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    With thanks!
