The cost of Sponsored Articles in Kenya is determined by various factors. The average cost is Ksh 5,000 per article. But there are a couple of blogs which charge Ksh 100,000 per sponsored article.
To know the amount of money to charge, here are the factors to consider:
- Traffic numbers
Blogs with less than 100,000 monthly page views/visitors will charge Ksh500 to Ksh 5,000 per sponsored article. Normally, advertisers check the ranking of your site before determining how much they’ll pay you. It’s hard for a blog receiving less than 100,000 monthly page views to charge above Ksh 10,000.
Blogs receiving 500,000 to 1 million page views charge Ksh5,000 to Ksh 15,000 per article while those getting above 1 million page views charge over Ksh 15,000.
Viral blogs like Nation, Standard and Tuko News charge above Ksh40,000 per article.
The highest paying niches are betting,casino and web hosting. If your blog covers sports and betting content, you’ll receive numerous sponsored articles. Betting sites pay up to Ksh100,000 per sponsored article.
A fairly popular blog will charge Ksh 7,000 to Ksh 30,000 per sponsored article. Majority of those posting sponsored articles pay Ksh 10,000 per article.
Entertainment and news niches attract the least number of sponsored articles, they also pay less than other niches.
- Number of keywords
You can’t get sponsored articles if the number of keywords on your site are below 100.Those getting regular sponsored content are blogs with over 10,000 keywords.
As a blogger, you should aim to have more than 10,000 keywords in your blog. With this number of keywords, you’ll get at least 2 sponsored articles per week.
- Domain authority
Domain authority also matters. Older domains with strong domain authority are paid higher than new domains. For instance, if your domain name is 5-years older,you can ask for Ksh 10,000 and above for each sponsored article.
