So i tried creating an online ad on Nairaland for my tee wee Design curation blog and after submitting and waiting about 10 hours i got approved…and then got this.
Truth is, i am disappointed. Maybe because Nairaland is STILL sporting user experience that, though functional, can be made soooo much better and enjoyable. Maybe it’s because i have to fork out 20,000 for a minimal campaign that i wanted to use test the waters and eval results. Definitely because Nairaland doesn’t have an online collection system that simplifies payment for advertisers and brands, but prefers to throw everyone in the round-about merry-go-round.
It wouldn’t hurt if
- Duh! Online payment system for advertisers! Because, it’s IMPORTENT!!!
- Flexible service plans because, ffs, not everyone wants to fork out 20,000. Reddit has a more flexible advertising plan (although that’s changing next week) and brands are jumping on that. Nairaland can replicate that and allow people who want to execute minimal one-off campaigns to publish their ads.
