What is Opera News hub and how does it work?

Before delving into how to make money on Opera News hub, it is better you know what Opera News is, how it started and what it is used for?

This will give you an overview of the earning system.

Opera News is a news hub where interesting news, posts and informative stories are shared online.

The platform can be used by highly dedicated writers, bloggers and influencers to share their thoughts and earn cool money online.

The content platform allows writers to write, publish and share original content online with Opera’s over 350 million users in the world.OperaBlog

According AppAnnie, Opera News is the most widely used news app in Nigeria and also the most downloaded news app with more than 20 million users in the whole world.

Most people have been using Opera browser since the boom of Global System for Mobile (GSM) communication technology in Nigeria around 2004 or thereabouts.

One way or the other, the browser can be used to browse the web without data. And up till now, Opera attracts new users and encourages the existing ones with free browsing.

I can remember how we used to browse with Opera Mini on java enabled mobile phones without data subscription.

After adding some kind of codes to your phone, particularly in the browser, you could browse without buying internet data for months.

Gradually, the trick stopped as the network providers began to improve their services.

So, don’t be surprised to find out that you can make money when you publish an article on the Opera News hub.

You can download the app either on your computer or smart phone, provided your machine supports any of the following operating system:

  • Microsoft Windows
  • Mac
  • Linux
  • Andriod

The news hub didn’t just start now. It’s been in existence since November 2019 as a way to make Opera fun filled.

Sure enough, you know what the content platform is by now.

So, let’s see how it works?

Earning money with Opera News isn’t difficult as it seems. You only need to understand some few basic things.

To earn steadily on the platform, you need to come up with an interesting post.

An interesting post is not just a story but something very unique and engaging.

Your article can be in form of news, reviews – happenings around you or educational posts that people would always want to read and share.

For example;

You can write about an accident that happened in your area and state how it happened after carrying out your own investigation.

That is, you can write and publish necessary precautions to avoid road accidents, which is a very relevant topic.

This kind of story can go viral, because it is useful for everyone.

By so doing, your post will generate income for you on Opera News hub.

How to make money on Opera News hub

Your earnings on Opera news hub depends solely on engagements.

The truth is the quality of your post will attract engagements and engagements will drive money.

The kinds of activities that occur on each post you publish on the platform determine how much you earn.

That is, the more users engage with your posts, the more money you earn.

Meanwhile, to make money on Opera News hub, your content must gain enough views, likes, comments and shares.

Publishing regularly won’t do this but publishing GREAT content.

Since you can’t go after users and coerce them to read your posts, the best you could do is to ensure your content is compelling.

NOTE: There are great strategies for writing engaging content. Your “A” level essay writing techniques won’t make anyone want to read and engage with your post, this 13-Point Checklist Will Help You Write Killer Content on Opera News hub.

The platform is not where you can just dump your articles and expect money to come.

After publishing an article, you need to follow up on your work and ensure enough people find and engage with it.

In other words, you can adopt the following strategies to make money with Opera News hub:

  1. Write viral content: Viral content are sharable content. They are some kind of posts that go viral on social media. Why? Because they are original, relevant, informative, educational and critical. When a user comes across an interesting post and wants his friends and family to learn one thing or the other from the post, he shares it. Following that trend, others too will share and share.
  2. Don’t write less than 150 words per post: The volume of your post is not what matters but its authority. Ensure whatever you’re writing is rich to make readers love it. Then endeavor to write above 150 words to treat as many relevant points as possible.
  3. Engagement: Whenever you’re writing, find a way to engage your readers. In fact, you can even encourage readers to like, share and make a comment on your post before leaving the page.

The point is Opera News hub doesn’t pay for your articles but the engagements or the numbers of time someone reads, shares and clicks your posts on the hub.

In the meantime, you have to read this entire piece to the very last end and plan.

You might need to devote 12 to 48 hours in your time per week for the job.

The platform has a monthly earning system in which payment is made to all users based on their performance on every 1st and 15th of each month.

You can have it at the back of your mind that those who set up the platform to create opportunities for people are not philanthropists.

They are a set of entrepreneurs with goals.

That means, to get paid, your articles MUST meet up with their requirements.

Many people are great writers but sometimes have challenges with what to write about – ideas are not just coming.

If you ever find yourself in that circumstance, read How to Find Great Topics or Ideas to Write about so you don’t get stuck midway!

But if you can’t write viral content or you don’t have the time to promote your posts and boost user engagement rates, don’t be discouraged.

In case any of the requirements is too much for you, there is a way out.

You can hire a freelance writer that can do the job for you and pay as low as ₦1000 per article.

Need a writer?

Search for writers in blogging and writing groups you know on Facebook.

In less than 24 hours, you will definitely get more than enough people that will show interest.

But yet, that doesn’t mean the requirements should be overlooked.

By doing “cutting and pasting”, many freelance writers will steal and give you other people’s work.

If you don’t screen what you’re given, you will just be wasting your money, because Opera will not pay you for a stolen article.

If you are able to publish and promote an interesting story on the platform and make ₦5,000, you can still record a profit of ₦4,000 at the end of the month.

This is just a rough estimation, though.

You can make more than ₦100,000 per month as everything depends on your performance.

How Opera News hub pays authors

Here is the analysis of how Opera News hub pays authors for publishing their content on the platform.

If an article is clicked once, it generates a traffic bonus of ₦0.036 for the author.

Thus:

  • 100 clicks = ₦3.6
  • 1,000 clicks = ₦36
  • 10,000 clicks = ₦360
  • 25,000 clicks = 2.5 x 360 = ₦900

This is the basic pay.

In as much as you push to get high click rates, engagements can be used to bank high.

Mixed feelings

Although there are mixed feelings about Opera News hub payment procedures.

Many people are wondering if the platform is really paying its publishers.

If it does, how much does it pay?

Some people believe the payment rate for writing for Opera News Hub is not worth the stress one would have to go through before he can earn.

But that thought was removed as Excellent Ernest, Samuel Adejorin and Goodluck A Isaac argued that the hub is SURE BANKER!

According to Goodluck A Isaac, you can make money on Opera News hub if you have great content and ability to share your post after submission and approval and the post earns much comments from readers.

Goodluck is not an Opera News publisher. But from his analysis, it shows he knows how the platform works for content creators.

There is a point he mentioned which I want you to note. He said it is possible to earn more if you have a Facebook group where you can share the content you create on Opera News.

That does not necessarily mean Facebook group, but anywhere you can share your news content and get people opening the link and reading your post.

That can fetch you a lot of money, say ₦100,000 or more.

How to get your post approved instantly

It is worth knowing that not all content submitted on Opera News hub will go live. Some are rejected or completely banned from the platform if found against the terms of use of the service.

So, if you want your post to get published instantly, you have to ensure you don’t involve yourself in any of the following practices:

Copyright violation

Opera News frowns at plagiarism.

If you want to make money on Opera News hub, you can’t steal other people’s intellectual property and think you will make money with it.

All your content MUST be original as much as possible. While you’re doing your research, avoid doing “cutting and pasting”.

Always study your sources very well to develop your own ideas.

Avoid clickbait titles

In blogging, we are all used to power words and emotional terms that can add positive or negative sentiment to our title.

All these are believed to be clickbait.

But unfortunately, Opera News doesn’t want authors to use clickbait of any form in the post title. If found in your title, it may cause your post to be rejected or delayed.

So, if you don’t want that to happen to you, endeavor to avoid the following terms in your title whenever you’re creating an article on Opera News hub:

  1. Unbelievable
  2. Surefire
  3. Mind Blowing
  4. Life-changing
  5. Jaw-dropping
  6. Shocking
  7. Surprise
  8. Must watch
  9. Crowd goes wild
  10. OMG

So, have no fear that your efforts will go down the drain.

  1. Login to your account
  2. Open your dashboard
  3. Click Monetization

When you click Monetization on the dashboard, a page containing the numbers of clicks and amount of money you have earned will open.

And you will see it by yourself.

How to withdraw your earnings on Opera News hub

Your earnings on Opera News hub must have reached the minimum of ₦5,000 threshold before you can make a withdrawal.

Anytime you make upto ₦5000, you’re free to withdraw your money.

On your account dashboard, you will find Withdraw Earnings.

Login with your Facebook or Google account and push the button.

If you don’t forget, we said earlier that withdrawals on Opera News hub can only be made on the 1st or 15th of each month.

So, anytime you want to withdraw your earnings, ensure it is on either of those specified days.

But note that your bank plays a factor in this regard.

It’s possible you receive the payment on your Opay account and experience some delay in catching the cash, depending on your bank.

But under normal circumstances, your Opay account will be credited in less than 24 hours of making the withdrawal.

Some banks take a week or less to complete the transaction.

    I’m having problem publishing my post on Opera News Hub. I was asked to set and confirm my thumbnail.

    Please how can I do this?

If that doesn’t work, then click on the WhatsApp chat button on your screen to connect with us directly. So we can help you further. Thank you.

    Thanks

    • Thank you for reaching out to us on this issue. Please first check and ensure your Opay account is actively working. If it is, make sure you use the same phone number used in opening your Opay account to link your Opay account to your Opera News hub account. If you need any further support, use the Whatsapp contact button on this page. Someone will assist you from there.

  5. I started writing for Opera mini news hub two weeks ago. I have published 6 articles with thousands of views but I have not seen any earnings.
    The only monitisation features on my dashboard always say the feature is unavailable. This has dropped my Morales to write because I don’t want to waste my time.
    How do I go about this?
    What is the customer care I can reach out to on this?
    Thank you.

    • Sorry to hear that. But I will advise you check your earnings on Opay not on Opera News hub. If any further problem, hit the Whatapp contact button on the page to get a one on one support from us.

  6. 1. Please sir, does Opera pay per article activity i.e like viewers, clicks, share, comments and likes or collect all your articles together and pay when they are up to the expected demand?
    2. If after your article(s) reached the expected demand and you are payed for it, is it possible for you to receive another payment when that same article(s) meet up with another demand again?
    Thanks a lot.

    • This is it, Opera pays for each article you publish as long as the article remains relevant on the news hub and people keep clicking, reading, liking and sharing it. They pay on every 1st and 15th of the month and you can’t withdraw your earnings until it reaches N5,000. The same article that fetches you N5,000 this month can still fetch you money next month and beyond if people keep reading it. Finally, you can start earning money the moment you publish and people read. Note that it is not your article they pay for but the engagements – how people interact with your article. So, it is possible you publish an article and receive no money if no one reads the article.

    • You can from your dashboard in the list of your published articles. You can equally copy and paste the link of the article in your browser to see your published article.

  7. Comment: Am new in publishing for opera news hub, plz what is the difference between “reach and clicks”? And how best can someone write an original sports article

    • You’re welcome to Opera News hub guideline by Pilum Digital Institute. We’re here to teach you how to make money with Opera News hub.

      So feel free to walk along with us.

      Concerning your question, both “REACH” and “CLICK” are commonly used terms in DIGITAL MARKETING WORLD…

      So, if you see someone talking about how to engage the audience on the internet, he will definitely talk about CONTENT CREATION. And when it comes to analytics, measuring how the audience engages with the content, these two terms surface.

      So, now what is “REACH”?

      You won’t be surprised, “REACH” is “REACH”, which means reaching someone or a place.

      As you have your target audience – the specific category of people you address with your content as a marketer or publisher, it’s a good marketing or copywriting practice to know if your content is actually reaching the target audience.

      On the other hand, what is “CLICK”?

      “CLICK” too is “CLICK”.

      The internet is full of links. If you go to Google, Bing, Yahoo and search for something, all the results you see are links….

      Assuming your intention is to find a job and you make the search, each time you press your MOUSE on your computer desk to navigate from one page to the other on the internet, you have made a “CLICK”.

      So, with this demonstration, as a writer who wants to earn money for writing and publishing articles, reviews or salescopies for big companies to help them REACH more customers, the numbers of CLICKS generated by your content determine how much you would be paid. The companies might have set a standard for paying you per click. Let’s say they want to pay you $1 per click and your content generates 1000 clicks, it means your money is $1000.

      I hope this answers your good question perfectly?

      Thank you, dear.

    • You’re not generating any number. You’re to use your valid phone number to create your Opay earning account.

  8. Excellence! The Pilum Digital Institute (PDI) customer care service is really the best. When I had issues linking my Opera news hub account to my Opay earning account, PDI assisted me. They didn’t waist time responding to me.

    • Thank you Emmanuel for reading our guide and taking a step further to approach us when you had issues with your account opening on Opera News hub.
