Top 4 Business Websites in Nigeria
Digital has taken over the world. The rate at which we create websites has grown exponentially over the past few years, thanks to the birth of Online Marketing. This has created an avenue for online users to earn income by having a website. However, just having a website is no longer enough as content needs to be shared on these websites. Be it owned or shared/aggregated content, the method deployed in disseminating these information is very key as this determines the engagement generated online.
In the business world, content is pretty much as important as the platform. Individuals or brands who have interests in particular industries have to get as much detailed information as possible from these industries. These individuals or brands are heavily reliant on business news sites to provide them with adequate information from time to time. A couple of business news sites have shown true value and are making progress in passing across these content to interested online users. As a brand, if you are interested in reaching a large number of ‘serious-minded’ people, these websites should be considered:
Bizwatchnigeria.ng: Bizwatchnigeria is a sector-based online news and business intelligence portal. This portal provides business news across over 30 different sectors of the economy. However, most information delivered by Bizwatchnigeria.ng is mostly aggregated. Standing within the top 500 most visited websites in Nigeria, bizwatchnigeria.ng has concrete social media presence across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. In addition, the bizwatch portal boasts of over 50,000 working class e-mail addresses through which newsletters on the latest news in different industries are aggregated and sent on a daily basis.
