One of Nigeria’s foremost online faith-based, entertainment and lifestlye platforms promoting Nigerian Gospel Music and showcasing Christian-related News, www.GospelNaija.com, has unveiled it’s digital monetization platforms for Creators of Christian and Ethical content to make money from their works. Registered on June 28, 2011, the platform has pionereed and powered the new generation of Nigerian Gospel Music promotion, by creating a social network platform that enables talented and anointed Gospel Music Ministers and other creatives to express themselves and get the Gospel propagated through their works, being one of the first Gospel websites to allow users create their profiles, upload their works and share for free.
To celebrate its 7th year anniversary on Thursday 28th of June, 2018, GospelNaija took it a notch further by enriching content creators with GospelNaija 3.0; an upgraded platform that pays content creators for the PLAYS and DOWNLOADS of their works. This means artistes and other content creators can now make money off their songs, videos, podcasts, vlogs, tutorials, skits and other digital materials when users stream or download their content. GospelNaija 3.0 is open to all creators of Christian and Positive contents like Gospel Musicians, Movie Producers, Preachers, Motivational Speakers, Podcasters, Vloggers, Event Organizers, Dancers, Comedians and the list is endless.
Currently, the social networking platform boasts of housing over 8,000+ digital contents from over 1,000 content creators serving free streaming and downloads to about 3,500 registered members and 100,000 monthly visitors. When asked how they intend to fund the payment system by offering free downloads, Emmanuel Oyezechukwu – Head of the GospelNaija Team has this to say, “GospelNaija 3.0, dubbed #GospelNaijaPAYS is a monetization platform that runs on Advertising and Promotions. When members and visitors stream content on the site, they are served with short skippable pre-roll videos ads that play before the audios or videos. The advertisers pay us to air these ads and we gladly choose to share the profits with the artistes that have provided contents. It’s a win-win for everyone; The Artistes who make content available, the Advertizers who sponsor the airing of these contents with their ads and of course the Audience who stream and enjoy the content. Having actively studied the Nigerian audience, her acceptance for other digital monetization platforms out there and the seeming unwillingness or perhaps phobia to use credit/debit cards on these online stores, we concluded that serving ads was the best way to go. We have always been interested in monetization from the very beginning, it was a matter of when, not if.”
#GospelNaijaPAYS creatively serves as acronyms for:
– GospelNaija Pays As You Sign Up,
– GospelNaija Pays As You Submit
– GospelNaija Pays As You Sing,
– GospelNaija Pays As You Subscribe and
– GospelNaija Pays As You Share.
