This is becoming one of the biggest sources of revenue for most news Websites in Nigeria.

The posts could be to promote a product/service, A song or Movie Premier. Sometimes a political campaign could also be put up for promotion. The fees could range from N20,000 – N100,000 per sponsored post, depending on the daily traffic (audience) your News website enjoys.
