Promoting Your Courses on Nigerian Seminars and Trainings Portal
As a response to all the enquiries we have been receiving from training providers all over the world wanting to know how they can use our platform to promote the businesses and upcoming training courses, we decided to put together a step-by-step guide on how to assist prospective users. Old users too can learn a thing or two especially when it comes to advertising options.

Promoting Your Business / Courses on Nigerian Seminars and Trainings.com
There are four ways you can promote your courses on our platform. These are:
(1) Subscription to our Premium listing Platform
(2) Direct Banner Advert Placement
(4) Install Our Search Widget on Your Website
Our premium listing subscription allows subscribers to place their courses in advantageous positions to ensure greater visibility and conversion. The premium listing is an annual subscription service charged at NGN100, 000. The subscription comes with two premium courses per month. Additional courses are charged at NGN5, 000 per courses per month.
So, should you wish to have more than 2 premium courses per month, you will have to pay for the additional courses either as a lump sum or monthly. For example, if you want to make 6 of your courses premium per month, you will be required to pay for 4 extra course listings (at NGN5, 000 per course per month).
This is calculated as follows:
- 4 additional premium courses at NGN5, 000 per course = NGN20, 000 per month
- NGN20, 000 x 12 months = NGN240, 000 per year
Cost of Additional Course Listing + Premium Subscription = NGN240, 000 + NGN100, 000. This comes to NGN340, 000 for subscription and 72 premium courses (24 + 48) for a year.
The banner advert placement on the other hand is like placing a billboard on the website. It serves the purpose of engendering cognitive resonance when a prospect who has been exposed to the banner sees the advertiser’s courses on the site.
To arrive at a cost for banner advert placement, we need to know the size of the banner and your preferred position (home page, inner page).
3. Pay Per Click (PPC) Advertisement
PPC is an internet advertising model used to direct traffic to websites in which an advertiser pays only when your ad is clicked or impressed upon on the advertising platform (our website).
