The platform is now used by more than 40 thousand African content creators
Opera, one of the world’s major browser developers and a leading internet consumer brand, has launched its online editorial platform Opera News Hub, in Ghana.
The launch of Opera News Hub provides Ghanaian authors and bloggers with easier ways to produce, distribute, and monetise their original online content to a large and active audience.
Opera News Hub is easy to use and allows content creators to set up their online content in minutes. Once the login and registration process is completed, Opera News Hub allows you to create an article where you can edit the text and images according to the goals of your publication.
Opera News Hub connects seamlessly with other Opera mobile applications, particularly the popular Opera Mini browser and the standalone news app, Opera News. This means that content creators who choose Opera News Hub will be able to reach a new international audience, expand their online visibility, increase their fanbase on social media channels, and run their own online publications across the various Opera mobile products.
More than 40 thousand African content creators on board
Opera News Hub was initially launched in Lagos, Nigeria in October 2019. In less than six months, more than 40,000 African content creators have joined the platform and are uploading thousands of articles to it everyday.
In Ghana, the platform aims to enable an environment where writers and content creators can express themselves, and tell their local stories to the world while generating revenue with each article they publish.
Ghana joins the list of countries where Opera News Hub is available. Ghanaian content creators will now be part of the fastest growing online editorial platform across Africa, and will join the exclusive list of content creators in Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, Ivory Coast and Egypt.
Increasing traffic and engagement with your audience
Content creators that are already using other social media platforms to share their content can link their social media profiles to their own website in Opera News Hub to increase their traffic and profile views.
The Opera News Hub platform also allows authors and bloggers to keep track of their publication traffic, helping them better understand the topics that their audiences are primarily interested in. The platform’s dashboard displays detailed information about the number of impressions, visualisations and shares that their articles have. This information is invaluable for content creators who are searching for detailed information that they can use to improve the monetisation of their online content.
