MAKE MONEY ONLINE IN AFRICA
Making money online shouldn’t have anything to do with location, right? The answer should be clear by the time you finish reading this article.All depends on how you want to make money online.Lets look at some of the ways you can make money online.
When I started looking for ways to make money online,my first option was surveys.It was what was most popular at the time.It was not even easy finding a trusted site to register.There were those sites that had modes of payments that were not friendly to those in Africa.As a student in Africa who wants to supplement your income online,this is one harsh reality.What do you do if you register on a site that only pays through PayPal only to realize PayPal doesn’t accept your country?The very first problem you face in Africa is finding an online payment gateway that allows you to easily withdraw your money.The second harsh reality is registering on a site that has a high rating only to find you don’t qualify for most of the surveys.This can be a number of reasons.Most popular is your profile doesn’t fit what they are looking for but the most common one is your location.You are not being discriminated against and that’s the truth.Most of the companies that put out surveys need quality feedback from their consumers which judging by your location won’t happen because you are not even a consumer.The presence of these companies in Africa are just a few hence the few surveys.How can you make money in Africa if you get one survey in 3 months?Obviously a no-brainer. If you are located in South Africa however,things could be different for you.It’s easy to make $20 a day from surveys there.This is because of the number of such companies are present in the country.Surveys tend to benefit those in the US,UK and Canada a lot.I will list ways you can make money online in Africa later in this article but if you still want to try out surveys,I would recommend POINTS2SHOP. They have high paying surveys and payment can be received through Paypal. They are very strict in the sense that you need to have a static IP address or else you would find yourself getting penalized.If you do get in such trouble with them,there are ways of resolving them.It’s worth giving them a shot if you are located in a place that will favour you.
The second most popular way to make money is using PTC sites. PTC means paid to click.What this means is you get paid just to click on adverts.This method of making money online has got nothing to do with your location however if you are not interested in pennies and cents,run away from them.I find them just a complete waste of time.You can still make money with them but it wont be a lot and it will happen over a long period of time.There is one that is worth checking out.It’s not only a PTC site but there are surveys available as well.The most profitable task you can do on that site is mini-tasks.This can see you making money in no time but only if you have enough time to spend behind a PC.This link will take you there.
To really make money online irrespective of location is possible. Most people believe making money online is not supposed to be hard. There are a lot of get-rich-quick-schemes online about how you can make money in a very short time.When something is too good to be true,it usually is. There are a lot of misleading sites online, but there are also genuine ones that deliver.
To make money online requires careful introspection.What are you good at?What skills have you acquired that you can impart?What can you do with relative ease?Once you have answered these questions you should have a fair idea how to start.
If you are versed in literary arts,then there are a number of websites available that you can write for.Once your submission is accepted you get paid.Don’t forget there are a lot of people who are submitting articles so make sure your own stands out.This article contains a lot of links to such sites.If your official language is English ,this site wants you.They will pay you to teach English online.If you are an IT student with a little bit of time on your hands why not start a YouTube channel.You can post video tutorials there and earn money through adverts.As an IT expert you can also build websites as a side income.Even though WordPress and other hosting platforms are said to be easy,if you are technically challenged you would need help and that is where your IT expertise comes in.Have you noticed none of these have anything to do with your location?As someone who builds software and writing programs you have a lot to offer.There are people with ideas but lacking technical expertise to realize their dreams.You can find work like these on Upwork. Just sign up there and set up up your profile as such.Making money online is possible anywhere.

Affiliate marketing is the “thing” now. There are a lot of affiliate products that you can promote.Having a blog can make things easier, but you can also become an affiliate marketer without a blog.That would be tackled in another article.There are Affiliates that require you to have a blog and would monitor your traffic before accepting you.Amazon Affiliates is easy to join in this regard. You would be accepted, whether you have traffic or not. They require you to make 3 sales within 6 months in order to fully accepted.
Making money online can be full time or part time. Most people I discuss this issue with tell me they don’t have a lot time and would prefer something they can do in their spare time.How about blogging? Blogging need not be full time.Setting up your blog in itself doesn’t take much time.I believe there is a misconception about blogging.Blogging is like having a couple of pages which you update frequently.Having a diary and writing down events is not hard.Blogging is pretty much in the same vein.A lot of students tell me they want to make money online but they wouldn’t the time to manage a blog.This is because they are of the view that blogging entails a lot,but is that true?
Lets analyse things,you have finally decided to blog.How do you start?You can blog for free or you can pay for web hosting which I recommend.Getting a domain name with a popular extension is very cheap.Shopping around for a web host shouldn’t be hard.Things you should look out for when choosing a web host is speed and uptime .Finally choosing a blogging platform can be confusing but why not go with what most people are using.They must be doing something right if they are that popular.I am talking about WordPress. All the above can be done within a day.I must admit however that if you are technically challenged you might need a bit of help setting up your site.I am available to help should you need it. After setting up your site the biggest challenge is getting traffic.That is how you are going to make money.Without traffic,even if you have great content nobody would know.This might take sometime but making your site SEO friendly coupled with some other factors you should start having steady traffic.Blogging is not the fastest way to make money online but it would be in the long run.Most of all you are not limited by your location.As explained in this article making money online can be achieved no matter your location.Many people are looking for fast money hence their frustration.If you want to make money online ,be prepared to work hard.Many have done it,many are still doing it,you can also do it.
