MY EXPERIENCE AT THE DIGITAL MEDIA TALK WITH ELSIE GODWIN

October 03, 2018 5 Comments
On Thursday the 27th of September 2018,  I attended the Digital Media Talk with Elsie Godwin which took place at BWc hotel, Victoria Island Lagos with the theme “Blogging as a Tool for Social Change”. Just  as expected, it received a huge turn out of both participant and panelist.



A line of professionals who were amongst the panelist included the likes of Laila Ijeoma, Tosyn Bucknor, Tosin Ajibade, Sally Kenneth Dadzie, Moji Delano, Jide Adeyemi and the host of others I can't really remember who shared from their wealth of experience what blogging is, what it isn’t, and how blogging can create more social influence.


Firstly, I don't know whats up with Nigerians and African time, that we never seem to keep to time. I remember leaving Lekki for the venue  few minutes too 12 for an event which was scheduled to start for 11 am with the mindset that they wouldn't keep to time.

However, by the time I had arrived at the venue, the first panel was about rounding up yet, the few moments spent were very insightful and informative that by the 3 panelist, this young lady’s head was filled with so much knowledge that she felt she could take over the blogging space.



Bellow are a few of my take home notes from all the three panelist I was opportuned to listen to before this young lady was hit by hunger

My jotting note, and trust me I didn't plan this.

Niche Blogging: This point was made by Laila Ijeoma, when she made it point blank plain that the news and gossip blog was saturated already and as a result, Niche blogging is the only way to thrive in the blogging sphere, that is find a field or a space you are good at, focus on it and there you spread your wings into other arms of that particular field. E.g Education, Betting, Finance e.t.c

PR, Advertising and Blogging: According to the 3rd panel that consisted of men who were in the marketing or sales world, they said though the three might seem like they perform the same function, yet they don't.  While PR and Advertisement, seem like the same thing, blogging can be a tool used to achieve the both. Cause with blogging, you share your thought by connecting and interacting with your readers.

While building your blog brand, you need to transform it into a creative, credible product.

Monetizing your Blog: this was a major take home note for me cause it was an eye opener to the fact that there are various means at which I could make of cash through my blog which includes



  1. Freelance writing
  2. E books
  3. Sponsored post
  4. Selling products  
  5. Affiliate marketing and 
  6. YouTube.



It would be a total waste of my precious time if after all this take home notes, I don't implement anyone of them. So permit me to tell you, welcome to my YouTube channel, links to my latest Vlog would drop soon but for the meantime I am open to freelance writing, sponsored post, Selling your products and Affiliate Marketing.
