How to Create, Manage and Monetize a Job Blog

Do you know that you make money online if you can create, manage and monetize a Job Blog? Yes, it’s true because of large numbers of job seekers in the world.

Come to think of it…

It’s a bad news to hear that over 60% of Nigerian and job seekers…

But it’s a good news for smart job seekers who can make a living from lack of jobs.

It sound weird right? Sure!

If you are a job seeker, you can create a job for yourself by creating and managing a job blog here in Nigeria.

There is no need to ask if this business is creative. This is because the population of job seekers are increasing everyday.

Government are busy creating jobs in the news but non is available in the labour  market.

The few available jobs are then rushed by millions of jobless graduates. Imagine the massacre that happened during Immigration Service recruitment in 2014 which left many people dead in search of jobs.

Forget the scenario above, I was only trying to make an emphasis. What I mean is that there are more job seekers than jobs in Nigeria. This has created a lot of rush in this niche in such as way that…

Desspite the huge competition and the availability of the big players in the likes of jobberman.com, ngcareers.com, hotnigerianjobs.com, joblistnigeria.com, even new bloggers in this niche still have chance to make money from it.

When I discovered this, I think it’s high time that graduates began to stop waiting for white collar jobs.

How to Create, Manage and Monetize a Job Blog

Okay! Do it this way instead… while you wait for the job do something else that you think it’s lucrative.

Yes… Do something.

In fact, create a job blog. This could help you to find more job openings and at the same time could bring you money.

Yes, managing a job blog can make you to find more better jobs for yourself or friends. You may even become a hiring officer for companies and recruiters.  Could you imagine this?

After a while, you could then decide whether to work any job or not. Like me, I will not like to work any job because I think my time is so precious. Again, being a free-range animal, I like free movement and I hate being tied-down to one place.

That’s why you may need need to start a job blog if you are a job seeker.

Are you now ready to create a job blog?  If yes, let’s start…

It’s actually simple to get it done with few steps. You may need a little investment to actualize this.

I am going give you a run down of everything you need to create, manage, grow and monetize your job blog to the level you can make money from it.

In 2013, I created a job blog which I later sold to a friend. Now, he’s making from it.

Let’s start…

(1) Choose a domain name: It’s important that you choose a domain that has a job in it. Here are examples; TopTierJobs.com, OneShotJobs.com, JobsGate.com, etc.

(2) Buy a Hosting Account: It’s advisable to that you choose a very cheap hosting package for this since you are just starting out. Signup for $1/mo WordPress Hosting from GoDaddy! with FREE Domain name and more…

(3) Premium Job Template: You will need a blog template that is made suitable for jobs. A typical example are Jobify, Jobseek, JobMonster, or JobBoard. All these are templates made specifically for jobs. You can click them to preview how it will look after completion.

That’s all you need

Where to Get New Jobs Opening 

Daily, there are jobs opening from different companies. All you need to make a list of all the companies that recruits regularly. These are banks, telecommunication industries, eCommerce Companies etc.

Also, visit the popular job boards such as Hotnigerianjobs.com to get the latest job offer. Copy the jobs and publish on your blog.

Do your homework and optimize your blog with an onpage SEO

It might take time (about a year)  before the blog will rank well in Google and other search engines. SO, do well to exercise some patience while you grow the blog until it makes money.

Make sure you update everyday (at least 5 jobs/day).

Create a Social Media Presence for your Job Blog

Many job seekers are in the social media. So, do well to create a Facebook Page, Twitter Handle, Google+ page for the job blog.

From here, you can promote your blog to get faster results.

Create and Grow your Subscriber List

Many job seekers always want to have a job alert with in their email address. So, offer your readers the opportunity to subscribe for job alert by mail.

With the email list, you can grow your readership base by the numbers. These are the people you will be sending new post once you publish. Like me I am using Mailerlite Email Software to grow and send lessons to my course subscribers.

How to Make Money from your Job Blog

There are many ways to make money from your job blog. It’s sure that you have traffic and you can choose any of the strategies to monetize the traffic.

Here are the most popular monetization strategies on job blog;

(1) You can offer CV writing services: This is a very lucrative strategy by offering CV wrting services on your job blog. You can advertise your services under each job post.

(2) You can Compile and Sell Previous Interview Questions: I personally do this on one of my blog and people like it a lot. Source for and compile and provide answered to previous interview questions from top recruiters. Seel it directly to our readers. They will buy it because they need it to sell through the interview.

(3) Compile and Sell Interview Answering Tips: This is another way you could monetize your job blog traffic.

(4) Colloborate with Recruiters and Offer Paid Recruitment Services: This is what Jobberman is doing. You too can do it.

(6) Make Money From AdSense: This is the last but very important source of monetization. So, get AdSense account, integgrat on your job blog and make money from it.

The amount you can make depends on the traffic you get which is a a product of hard work and perseverance.

It won’t be easy but it’s something you need to do if you need a job. Simply create a job blog.

    Cool, sir. But u never mentioned the price for those job templates; or are they free?. Sir I thank God I subscribed for these lessons and I haven’t missed any of it for anything in the world. Please sir I need your advice on something I plan on doing. I want to start a classified blog just like olx and jiji where people can sell their stuff too but the template is a $100. I think this is a good niche cos people have not bitten too much into it but that template price is expensive and sounds like a risk to me. Do u advice me to do it? And about the CV writing services I don’t have the insight of how to write a CV, I don’t know how to go about compiling interview questions; where do I get them from or would u post a lesson on that too? Hope to hear from you soon sir. Finnaly I’d like to thank you for the idea you gave for on how to go about the import of my teeth whitening pens; sir could u believe I imported 100 pieces last week for 200naira each and sold for 1k instead of 1200 like I used to sell b4. My customers are coming back; God bless you for me Sir

      WOW @ Harvey, I am so happy for your business breakthrough.

      Sure, you can buy the theme if you are well grounded with the business idea. Like myself, I spend a lot of money online to get the best.

      Considering CV writing or interview tips: those are just ideas. They may not be suitable to everybody. In the course of the training, you may find one or two that might be relevant to you.

      I will soon give a training on free classified website and how it works.

      Great work!

    Thanks brother, for this platform. I have a ministry, and I need to create a blog. How can I go about it? And how do I make it profitable?

  5. Jonathan says:

    Hello Mr. Ifiokobong,

    Thanks so much for your articles. I just came across your blog and have started something.

    My question is on monetizing a job blog with adsense. If one copies job listing from the very popular job boards in the country, won’t Google blacklist my blog for not having original content?

    • Ifiokobong says:

      Hi Jonathan, you will need to have an AdSense account from a reputable blog before you use it on a job blog

      • Jonathan says:

        Ok, meaning that I must have an already existing blog with an adsense account before I can use it on the job blog.
        what happens if don’t have a blog already, let alone having an adsense account on it?

  6. Yetunde says:

    Can I use free blog created on blogger for posting job ads since I do not have money for blog template.

  7. Hello Sir,
    I just ran into your site and I think its gonna be of great help to me.
    From the things I’ve read,the first thing is to create a blog right? Now I don’t really think I can do the article writing thing,so can do the google adsense,affilliate marketing and advertising on the same blog and still earn something? I should be grateful to receive a reply

    • Ifiokobong says:

      Sure, you can do the three things together and even more on one blog. I even advice my readers to have only one blog for now to avoid distractions. So go ahead and start your online business.
