10 Incredible Reasons Why Your Business Needs a Blog

Whether you are in the shaggy mats business, Kienyeji chicken farming or insurance brokerage, if your business does not have a blog, you are seriously losing out on a lot of business opportunities. Here are the top 10 reasons why you should create a blog for your business.

Top Ten Reasons Why Your Business Needs a Blog

  1. A blog links your business with clients and customers

A lot of consumers rely on the internet to research a product or service before they make the final purchasing decision.

Take an instance where a consumer wants to buy Kienyeji chicken from KARI {:::replace the KaRI chicken with whatever you sell- shaggy mats, cucumbers, insurance brokerage, academic jobs training etc:::}. If the customer hasn’t made a decision on where to spend the money, there is every reason to believe that they will turn to the internet to research the best sellers.

Now imagine, you have a blog that focuses on the product and the customer finds your blog when searching for this information! Basically, a blog gives you a 75% higher chance of getting discovered by clients and customers. Start a blog now!

2.       A business blog Increases customers confidence in your brand/product

 Customers identify more with a blog that is constantly updated with content that is relevant to your brand, industry or business line. What such a blog tells your visitors is that you can be trusted as a reliable source of information.

As you continue adding more relevant information to your blog, customers come to trust and view you as an expert in your chosen field. Studies have shown that 81% of all customers trust information that they get from blogs.

However, in order to win their trust, you will need to use the blog as more than just a tool for self-promotion.

3.       Your blog is accessible round the clock

A blog remains open long after you close shop for the day. It is accessible round the clock. Customers who missed your closing hours can reach you through your blog. Those who can’t make to come to your physical store location can order for your products online. Seriously, if nothing else convinces you to create a blog for your business, this one factor alone should do it. A blog will increase the money that your business brings in.

4.       It is a cheaper way of getting your business in front of customers

Advertising on the internet is cheaper and more feasible than advertising on conventional media channels. If you can optimize your blog to rank on the first pages of Google, you are at an added advantage.  Google will send you massive customer traffic for Free!

5.        Educate your clients, customers and leads

Every business persons wants their customers to make informed purchasing decisions, and nothing can give this information to them more effectively than your business blog. By constantly updating your small business blog with informative and educative posts about your business, you can increase awareness about your brand and turn casual blog visitors into paying customers.

6.      Increase the geographical reach of your business

Many home-based businesses and small businesses in Kenya operate on zero-advertising business. They rely on word-of-mouth to announce their launch, their anniversaries and the new products they just brought in. Even at its best, word-of-mouth can only reach a few neighboring villages.

A business blog on the other hand gives you the potential to reach a countrywide, if not worldwide market. If you are serious about getting your small business to the next level, it is time you got it a blog!

7.        Puts you at par with your competitors

If you are not running a blog, your competitor is probably running one, and is beating you pants down!

8.    Your blog could be an additional source of income

A lot of bloggers have advertising space on their blogs for products that are complement what they are selling. This creates additional source of passive income to them. However, you might not want to carry ads on your blog is you are relying on it as the main sales channel. I don’t see any reason why you would want to advertise a competitor’s ad on your blog.

9.     A blog will keep you motivated when no customers are forthcoming

Every business has that low season when the sales are slow and no customers are making an appearance in their physical stores. At moments like these, your business blog could be a friend indeed. Instead of worrying yourself sick, take a moment to come up with fresh ideas for your blog’s content.

Researching new content to write in your blog also sharpens your wit and business acumen.

Seeing visitors stream into your blog will also restore faith that all is not lost.

10.    Network with like-minded people

Finally, your business blog is your opportunity to reach out to other like-minded small business owners across the world, exchange ideas and expand your thinking.

I am almost running out of ideas to emphasis the importance of creating a blog for your business. I am sure you can find three additional reasons why your business should be blogging. Share some of them in the comments section, and let us blog!

Top 5 Rave Joints in Nairobi

Welcome to Nairobi, the City in the Sun. The city where the party never ends. If you are looking for a party joint to while away the weekend while you are in Nairobi, here are 5 exceptional party venues that will blow your mind away:

#1 XS Millionaires Club

Located in Baricho Road, XS Millionaires Club is, as the name suggests, a place for those with loads of cash to throw away. Nevertheless, the kind of entertainment you get XS Millionaires is worth every dime you spend. The best feature at the club has to be the seductive poll dancers and model waitresses.

#2 Tribeka- Kimathi St.

The atmosphere at Tribeka attracts old revelers (30-35), who somehow live in the relish of their sweet sixteen years. The atmosphere in the club is cool and the furnishings are funky and welcoming. During my last visit at Tribeka, a bottle of beer was 200/=, which is not a bad price when you are partying in Nairobi.

#3 Scratch- Moi Avenue

If you are looking to be plastered with tots of Amarula and Sabuka at pocket-friendly prices, Scratch is where you want to be. Scratch is a unique late-night club conveniently located in Nairobi’s Central Business District. The club has two main attractions- an elevated dance floor and an outdoor patio. Scratch hosts many popular DJs and celebrated Kenyan and international music performers.

#4 Mercury- Waiyaki Way

This out of town party venue boasts of a cool ambiance, invigorating music and waitresses who dress to kill. The security team is friendly but what I don’t find alluring about Mercury is the fact that most of the clientele are too laid down for my gregarious rave personality.

#5 Brew Bistro- Ngong Road

Brew Bistro combines it all- lively revelers, perfect security personally, good music including live performances by established Kenyan artists and karaoke. However, be mindful of how much you spend on their wines and spirits. The price will leave your wallet groaning.

IPage Web Hosting Review

If we were to count the number of businesses in Kenya that are taking their operations online every day day, we would end up losing count somewhere in the middle. The online revolution is here and it is here to stay. The future of business is in the internet, not only for freelance workers and work from home moms but also for businesses in the conventional brick and mortar industry. In fact, if you really want to give your business a competitive edge, you need to take it online as soon as possible, if possible, before the launch of the Konza Techno City. To do so, you will require to work with a web hosting service such as iPage.

My Experience With iPage

At Blogscheme, I use the inexpensive iPage starter package to host this website and a variety of other niche websites that I own. I love iPage not only because it is a cheap web hosting company, but also because they have exemplary services and an uptime that you will love.

Ease of Use

I launched my first website without any technical know-how! and that site is a beauty to behold! iPage uses a Cpanel that comes with one-click WordPress installs. After installing WordPress on your account, everything else is as easy as choosing a beautiful WordPress theme to use on your site. Many web hosting reviewers rank iPage web hosting among the very best in the industry. In fact, it is not surprising to find it ranked among other web hosting companies such as GoDaddy and Bluehost, which are said to be among the premium web hosting companies, and one of the reasons that is fiven for this impressive ranking is its ease of use.

Affordability

If memory serves me right, I used less than $25 to launch my first blog in iPage, out of which I got a free domain name and whole $50.00 Advertising credit to use on Facebook! iPage also advertises that they give $100 Google Adwords advertising credit, but honestly, I didn’t receive this one. Maybe the Adwords Credit is not eligible for use in Kenya or it is an advertising gimmick to get you into their hosting. Either way, I really can’t complain about iPage’s rates. They are among the best among the many web hosting companies.

I also got a throwback of another FREE domain name after I had hosted with them for an year! If you need to grow one niche website every year, this is a great way to save on domain registration costs!

The basic web hosting package from iPage gives you unlimited disk space, bandwidth and emails. This gives your business the maximum cyberspace room it needs to grow. Additionally, iPage’s starter package gives your business access to a few shopping carts and other marketing tools. I especially fell in love with the Facebook ads Coupon code that let me advertise my business on Facebook for free.

Customer Support

I have already mentioned that I launched my first website without any technical know-how. As such, I was prone to making mistakes and blunders that scared the lights out of me. Luckily, I am one of the few guys who do not hesitate from asking for support whenever they discover they took the wrong turn. iPage’s Customer Care did not disappoint. They solved every tiny issue raised professionally and in time. This is the one reason why I would confidently vouch for them at any given time. The iPage web hosting service is ideal for beginner and intermediate businesses that want to take their businesses online. You can host more than one domain in using their basic hosting package.

IPage is the Cheapest Web Hosting Service

Web Hosting from iPage This is the main reason why I settled for iPage web hosting service after testing more than 20 other hosting services. I realized one very important thing: Many of the other shared web hosting services sell you a brand name, and offer you the same services as iPage does. You want unlimited domain hosting on one account? Stick with iPage. Unlimited emails for your staff? iPage will give you that. Unlimited bandwidth and disk space… If your mind can concieve it, iPage can deliver it. Generally, there is no difference between iPage and all the other ‘premium hosting services out there. The only difference is that you may end up spending a lot of money on premium hosting for the same package that you would have gotten at iPage. If your website/blog does not involve so much heavy usage such as bulky files hosting, you should consider going for an inexpensive web host such as iPage.

IPage has Up to 99% Server Uptime

This is the other reason why I think ipage makes for an awesome web hosting service. My website is always up when I need it to be up. The few times that I have found it down for maintenance have not really affected my blog traffic. On top of the impressive up time, the customer support at iPage is simply awesome. One call is all it takes to fix any issue that your website or blog might be experiencing. the best web hosting in Kenya ipage hosting reviews

5 (Almost Silly) Reasons Why Your Blog Will Fail

Many bloggers in Kenya start blogs very hopeful that they will be making the big bucks after 6 or so months, but many of them don’t even stay past three months. For many of those who do, it takes them close to one year to start getting traffic of 1000 per month.  This is discouraging to any blogger, especially if you know that you have researched the right keywords and followed the right procedure to create a blog that should be making you money.

If the above scenario describes you, have you ever sat down and asked yourself why this maybe so? If you have what are you doing about it?

In this article I will explore five of the most obvious reasons why many new blogs fail.

The blog is not making money

This is one of the top most reason why many Kenyan blogs fail. Many people have heard that you can make millions from blogs. What do they do next? They rush to open blogs hoping to strike the jackpot within a week.

What most of them fail to understand is that it may take you up to six months to make your first dollar blogging. This are not just six months of doing nothing rather they are six months of hard work to make your blog better. My advice is if you are looking to make money from your blog you must really commit to it.

Patience is key here.

If you want to make a thousand dollars in one week, blogging is not the way to go.

Not promoting your blog

How else will your blog get noticed if you do not promote it?

The best way in which your blog will get noticed is to promote it. You should identify the best way to promote your blog. In many cases using social media works well.   Am sure if you saw a friend of yours in a social media promote their blog you would be curious to know what they write in it.

Apart from social media marketing, you should also try email marketing on your blog. I personally use and recommend Aweber for all email marketing and promotion. Click here to try Aweber for 30 days at only $1.00.

Promoting your blog is the first very important way of attracting traffic to your blog.

Inconsistency

Consistency is important in blogging. Even in business consistency is key to keeping customers. Most Kenyan bloggers start off with a lot of enthusiasm but somewhere along the way somehow the enthusiasm just dies.

[easy-tweet tweet=”Consistency is important in blogging.” user=”@demagnify” hashtags=”#KOT”]

Imagine you are a great fan of this blog that posts amazing content frequently then all of a sudden they no longer post. Would you still continue checking it as often as you did?

I bet not.

This is what happens when you are not consistent in posting new stuff on your blog. The traffic you had started attracting reduces and finally you are left with no followers at all.

Poor writing skills

Starting a blog is very easy.

Today anyone who wants a blog can start one. Most people assume just because they can construct sentences they can write for a blog.

Poor writing skills results in poor content. Who wants to spend their precious time reading content loaded with errors?

However if you are really interested in running a blog but your writing skills are wanting, you can hire someone to write guest posts for your blog. In the mean time you can learn and improve yours and write your own content eventually.

Inadequate knowledge in your niche

Most people don’t bother to do a research on the niche they are entering to. For example, you happen to come across information telling you that beauty products are selling like a hot cake online.

What will most people do?

They will run to their computers to start a blog. They won’t even do any research on the beauty product. Eventually they find out that they never made a prior plan and the blog is a total failure.

Running a successful blog is not such an easy thing but it’s not impossible. Just avoid the obvious mistakes and be patient.

Successful bloggers never give up.

 

What Type of a Blog Will Make You the Most Money?

Today marks the beginning of the week that will mark the end of yet another month, and it is sad if you haven’t yet realized your dream of making money from the internet. A lot of internet marketers will tell you that making money online is hard, but I refuse to subscribe to this particular mentality.

Making money online is as simple as taking action.

There are particularly two ways that you can use to make money that are super-dependent on your willingness to take action.

The first one is Kindle Publishing, and the second one, which I will actually talk about today, is blogging.

What Type of Blog Will Make You The Most Money?

So, what type of a blog will earn you the most money? Will running a blog such as the Kenyanpridespot make you enough cash?

Unfortunately, no.

If you want to make more money from your Kenyan blog, you will have to start a blog that digs into more than what you enjoy writing about. I for instance enjoy writing about online jobs, but the online money niche is so much oversaturated and highly competitive. The chances of making money from such a blog/niche are very minimal.

However, take a moment to consider my other blog “Best Weight Bench Reviews“*. This is one of my many niche websites that I launched a few days ago. It has already made me a cool $100 for the past one month and I expect it to make me even more as long as I have it is part of my Online Real Estate Property.

That is a Niche Website

how to choose a niche website topicSuch type of a blog is called a niche website. Basically, a niche site is a blog/website that is focussed on one subject matter. It is like having a boutique and then choosing that you want to only stock women lingerie. You may further narrow down your target market and decide that you want to focus only on women panties. You could even narrow down the panty-line and decide that you will deal primarily with G-strings.

In the example above, the focus of my website is primarily weight benches. I narrowed it down from sports and exercises, got down to strength training exercises, strength training equipment until I got down to weight benches.

But how did I decide to settle on weight benches and not any other strength training equipment? The answer to this one is a little complicated. This is where I advise you to sign up for my paid lessons, but I am feeling quite philanthropic today, so I will steal you into a few tips from the paid lessons.

How Do You Come Up With a Niche Website Topic?

The foundation of every successful niche website lies in a profitable keyword. A profitable keyword is a phrase that a lot of users on the internet are using to research products that they wish to buy. I for instance found that the keyphrase “weight bench” is used about 22,000 times per month in the US. This data is readily available in the Google Keyword Planner Tool. The keyword also has a lot of variations, which is actually a good thing.

After I have found such a keyword, I will Google Search it to measure the amount of competition that I will face from other bloggers. In measuring up the competition, I am usually checking for the number of backlinks every result page on the first page of Google SERPs has. I also check on the Page and Domain Authority of the results returned by Google. There is a very cool browser extension called SEO Moz that gives you all this data after you search for a phrase in Google. Simply install it on your web browser and you are ready to rock and roll.

measuring how competitive a blog keyword is
Seo Moz Extension showing competitiveness of a keyword phrase

If I find that the page and domain authority for some of the results on the first page of Google are less than 30, and there are pages that have less than 10 backlinks, I automatically know that I have hit jackpot! Results like those translates to a very good keyword that you can manage to rank on the first page of Google. The first position in Google means that you will receive more traffic which means that you will get more bucks streaming in.

After I have ascertained that they keyword will be easy to rank in Google, I will go to a domain registrar to get an Exact Match Domain before someone else beats me to it. An exact match domain is a domain that uses your keyword phrase exactly as it is. So for instance say you found out that the keyword ‘best mascara’ is a hot piece of cake, you will need to register your domain as bestmascara.com. That is what we call Exact Match Domain name or EMD, and it is good for SEO purposes.

A lot of bloggers in the Western World recommend that you register your domains with such registrars like Namecheap or Name.com. I however recommend domain registration and hosting through Bluehost. This is especially important if you are not that tech savvy. It takes the hassle of changing your nameservers.

How Do You Get a Keyword Phrase to Research in the First Place?

I trust that you now know what type of a blog will make you more money. There is a little bit that I haven’t touched on as yet. How do you in the first place come up with a keyword phrase to research?

There are many ways of doing this. I personally prefer to use article directories such as hubpages and Squidoo. These article directories are mostly used for SEO purposes and the articles posted there are a good indicator of which topics/keywords are presently being thought of to be hot. Hubpages especially has an awesome topics tree that you can use to drill down to a specific keyword.[sociallocker id=”36″][/sociallocker]

There is always a first step to everything, and the first step to launching a successful niche website is desire. Do you desire to make money from niche websites? If you do, get out there and Google everything you will ever need to know about this ‘thing’. That is what I did, and it worked for me.

When you make Google your friend in the pursuit for online riches, you learn a lot of things. I have learned most of what I know from constant reading. I once bought a book about blogging from one of the ‘reknown’ Kenyan internet marketers and it was the biggest waste of 1,000 shillings I have had. Before you go the route of premium services and products, use Google first.

The Most Convenient Ways to Withdraw Money from Paypal In Kenya

How do you withdraw all the money you have earned from freelance writing or other online jobs from Paypal to your Mpesa or bank account?

There used to be a time when withdrawing online money from Paypal in Kenya used to be a real hustle. There were only a few  inconvenient and expensive ways through which you could withdraw money from Paypal in Kenya.

I am surprised that we survived through the stone age period and emerged into the twenty-first century way of doing things.

If you forgot what used to happen during those old days, or you hadn’t started working online by then, here is a quick primer for you:

 

The Old Ways of Withdrawing Money From Paypal in Kenya

Using third party withdrawal individuals

There were two main drawbacks with using third-party individuals to withdraw your money from Paypal. One, 90% of these individuals were/are crooks not to mention that Paypal does not take such individuals lightly. It is illegal to use a third-party individual to withdraw money from Paypal.  Just a few days ago, I heard a lady complaining in Business Ideas 101 about how she had sent a certain fellow some online dollars but the guy decided to go AWOL on her!

If the third party individuals happened to be faithful (like Walter Akolo was), they presented you with another drawback. Withdrawing money from Paypal using third party individuals is darn expensive! Be prepared to part with a staggering 10% or more of the amount you have worked so hard to earn.

Using e-pay Kenya

The Epay-Kenya platform used to work  {or still works, if it is still in business} like the third-party individuals. The only difference was that Epay-Kenya was/is quite reliable. You can withdraw your cash from Paypal through epay-kenya and rest assured that you will get your cash safely in your Mpesa account.

The downside of withdrawing your money from Paypal using Caesar Waganagwa’s platform is the exorbitant withdrawal rates (8.5%-10%) and a dollar rate that is obviously not the best.

However, if you need your money fast, say in the next 30 minutes, Epay-Kenya is the platform for you.

Using the Payoneer Mastercard

The Payoneer Mastercard is an  electronic funds transfer card that lets you withdraw money from Paypal at an ATM that is Mastercard-branded.  I still include Payoneer among the old ways of withdrawing Money from Paypal in Kenya, although I will soon tell you why Papayoneer mastercard used to withdraw money from Paypal in Kenyayoneer still rocks as a way of withdrawing your dollars from Paypal and why I believe it is actually here to stay.

Payoneer offers a fast, secure and convenient way of withdrawing money from Paypal. Click on the button below to sign up for your card today.

The New Ways of Withdrawing Money From Paypal in Kenya

There are two ways through which you can withdraw money from Paypal in Kenya that are presently kicking dust.

  • Withdrawing Money From Paypal Using Equity Bank

I mentioned in passing that you could withdraw money from Paypal through Equity Bank sometime last year. Nothing much has changed since then.

If you own an Equity Bank accoEquity_PayPal_Withdrawal_Serviceunt, all you need to do is walk into the branch where you opened your account and request them to add your Paypal email to your account details. Next, scroll to this Equity-Paypal Withdraw Page, and follow the instructions there.

If everything goes well, and I don’t see why it shouldn’t, you should receive a confirmation message that your money will hit the bank in 5-8 working days. Weekends and holidays (in US and Kenya) are not counted as workdays, the money may therefore get delayed if you withdrew at such times.

The withdraw rates using the Paypal-Equity Withdraw Portal is only 1.5% and their dollar conversions is among the best in Kenya.

  • Using Skrill-iT to Withdraw Money from Paypal

A few weeks ago, Skrill (previously known as Moneybookers) came up withskrill.  The transaction only takes a few minutes and the dollar conversion rate is excellent! This is my new prefered way of withdrawing money from my online accounts and directly into my M-pesa line. I do not have to wait for Equity’s 5-8 business days!

There is only one deal breaker in the Skrill to Mpesa withdrawal services. Hypothetically, it is not possible to send money from Skrill to Paypal. So, what do you do if you have that clientusing skrill it to withdraw money from Paypal in Kenya who indignantly insists on paying you only through Paypal?

You can decide to withdraw your money through Equity Bank, like we have all been doing or figure out a way to get your dollars into Skrill.

How to Transfer Money From Paypal to Skrill

We will be using Freelancer to transfer our cash from Paypal to Skrill. Among all the freelancing websites, only Freelancer allows you to directly deposit cash into your account.
