Facebook Ad: How I Target Nigerians Living Abroad

Anyone familiar with Facebook ad will be aware that targeting some countries such as United States, Canada, Uk, and Australia will cost you more. African countries tend to have the lowest cost per post engagement when it comes to Facebook ad targeting. $5 spent on an ad campaign targeting countries in Africa will have far reach than targeting the United States alone with the same amount. But then what do you do when you want to reach certain nationals? For instance, you want Nigerians living abroad to see your ads.

Some might say just target the country you want them to see your ad. Truly, they might see your ad but will that be effective? Remember, Nigerians make a smaller portion of people in foreign countries they reside. Let say you target the United States, the probability that many Nigerians will see your ads will be slim, this is because the United States has more Americans and other immigrants.

So what you do if you want more of Nigerians living abroad to see your ad? At some point, I wanted that too. I wanted Nigerians in abroad to see my ads. I was marketing some assets here in Nigeria and I thought they might be interested in it.

Facebook

I decided to experiment and put some dollars on Facebook ads. I chose some top tier countries that I know Nigerians love visiting or living there. I know Nigerians will always be interested in what is happening in their country as many have family, friends, and loved-ones back home.

Since Facebook allows you define your audience through demographic, interest and behavior, I simply choose pages related to Nigerians. This implies that when my ads are served to people in those foreign countries, only those who have shown interest or liked pages related to Nigeria or Nigerians will see them.

Did it work? Well, I realized my ads run for a longer duration since the budget didn't get exhausted on time. I received few messages from Nigerians from the targeted countries. They made inquiries and I am hoping to make at least a sale. Who knows? Lol. You can't force people to buy things.

You can as well try this method and see if it will work for you. Remember, I was marketing assets sold here in Nigeria. You can probably try that for any service you render and see what the feedback will be like.

Finally I Switched To Emporio Theme

Ever since Blogger released four responsive new themes, I've been reluctant to use any of them for mazinoweb.com. While others were so quick to switch, I decided to take my time to get familiar with the new themes.

And finally, I decided to switch from my one-time Awesome template to Emporio. Out of the four new themes, I chose Emporio because of its beautiful grid layout. Although, Soho is also a grid theme the design is best for art related niche; what I feel though. The theme is responsive along with the other three but Emporio is just best fitting for my niche.

Well, it may take more time for many bloggers to switch to any of these four new responsive themes - first of its kind from blogger.  While working on the Emporio theme, I had to make some little alterations and modifications to suit my own taste.


In the future, I shall be sharing some tips on how to edit the Emporio theme to your style. One of the fantastic thing of these new themes is that you only need to add ad codes, widgets or scripts in one location to appear both in mobile view and web view. For instance, if you add Adsense code above the <data:post.body/>, the ad will appear below the post title on web and mobile.

Do you love the theme?
