Online Payment Solutions Available To Nigerians

Some have seen it coming, others did not, but on Saturday, May 25th,  2013, the online payment solution, Liberty Reserve was shut down by the US Federal Prosecutor and Costa Rican authorities.
This has resulted in huge loss for online business people around the world. But the effect was most felt by Nigerian netpreneurs (including myself ) and other onliners as many of them used and depended on Liberty Reserve for their online money transactions.
This is because the use of credit card is not popular in Nigeria and many secured and reliable online payment platforms including PayPal, which is arguably the most secured online payment solution do not
accept Nigerians. Therefore, buyers and sellers of online products and services in the country used liberty reserve for sending and receiving payments for their online business transactions.

This is not the first time, virtual money worth millions of dollars belonging to Nigerian onliners will be loss in such manner.. Around 2008 if I can recollect the year perfectly, egold which was more
popular and the choice of Nigerians netpreneurs then was suddenly shut down in the same manner with users (including myself) monies running into millions of dollars disappeared with it.

Though, liberty reserve was available then but egold was more popular in Nigeria and the world over I guess. The shut down of egold pave the way for the popularity of liberty reserve as the best alternative online payment solution especially in Nigeria. Whether liberty reserve will go into total oblivion or will experience
come back or whether user's can still have their money back or not, only time will tell. For now the next thing for Nigerians is to look for secured offline banking system that offers online services and online payment platforms for their online transaction within and outside the country.

The top secured payment systems that can be use by Nigerians to transfer fund to and from the country for their online transactions are
Some Nigerian online experts suggest that payza should be the no.1
online digital payment solution for Nigerians because of the following reasons

1. The top reason is that payza have mechanisms put in place for
checking money laundering activities and other fraudulent activities.

2. Payza have maximum limit for deposit and withdrawal for each of it
accounts namely individual, business, verified and non-verified.

3. You can send your money through local banks and as well exchange
your money through local exchangers which are local merchants that
deal with the selling and buying of online currencies.

Bank wire
What usually discourage Nigerians from using bank wire is that the
service come with charges considered too high by customers but i must
admit that bank wire is one of the best and most secured way to
receive and transfer fund online.

Domiciliary account
This is a dollar account. It is only available for current account
holder. It is popularly known as ' Dom account ' and is the choice of
Nigerian forex trader.

Internet banking
Almost all the banks in Nigeria are operating internet banking or
e-banking as some will call it. It is also a secure means of
performing online money transactions. Check your bank to know how you
can make use of their Internet banking service

Mobile money
Nigerians are reluctant about this, but it is a good way of settling
our online transaction at least within the country.

Reasons why bitcoin is recommended are
1. Bitcoin is an open-source software which means that all users have
access to all of  the source codes every time.

2. It uses peer to peer technology which means that it operates with
no central authority.

3. Bitcoin is supported by vibrant group of developers, businesses,
exchanges and users

4. Little or no processing fees

5. No risk of fraud and is immune to seizure or confiscation

6. It has a vibrant economy as it reached a 2.5B market cap in April 2013

Other digital online solutions available to Nigerians are Webmoney, Egopay etc.

This I strongly recommend. With the introduction of Naira MasterCard
by some of Nigerian banks, the popularity of  MasterCard is increasing
in the country. I suggest you open an account with banks like
firstbank of Nigeria, UBA, GTBank, Zenith, Access bank (visacard) and
others that offer ATM MasterCard with as low as 2000 Naira (about $13)
to open an account.
I recently used Firstbank Naira MasterCard to pay a client in Europe.

Some useful ethics
- only use mastercard on your personal computer or trusted computer system

-keep your ATM and your mastercard information very well

- only use your mastercard on platforms you've came to trust

-Do not leave excessive amount of fund you cannot afford to lose in
your mastercard account.

-Set a maximum limit for the amount of fund that can be on your online
virtual account and withdraw anytime you exceed that limit

-Do not leave any fund you cannot afford to lose in any of the online
payment system

-Check whether the online payment system is duly backed/certified by government

-Check on search engines for what people are saying from time to time about the platform and
switch over anytime you sense something suspicious.

These online payment alternatives are mere suggestions, users are
advice to do proper scrutiny before and after registering with their
chosen online payment platform.

If you are dealing with selling of phones, you cannot compare the technological level of mobile phones now with that of 5 years ago. New phones are invented almost everyday to the extent that consumers are confuse of which one to buy. As an online entrepreneur you need to stay alert to new phones entering the market and put them on your store or webpage.
You might need to talk to your customers to know their needs and expectations.

Online presence is all about science and technology. Try to learn new skills about how to improve or fine-tune your website, store or blog. You might need to add some plugging or gadget to your website, blog, store or social media pages that will help to optimize your performance and sales. Find new ways to make your page look fascinating so that visitors will have a good experience on your page.

Develop your yourself and your employees

Try to fine-tune yourself by attending training on your chosen online niche. Don't rely on the training you have received some years back. Things are changing, onliners are working round the clock to discover new things, new ways of doing things online.
On this account, it is vital to join professional group online. You can find such group on social media site like LinkedIn. Join the one that relate to your niche. Their discussions and suggestion can help you take your online business to the next level.
As you are developing yourself, you have to develop your employee or employees too, if you have one. Pass the knowledge you are acquiring to your employees and send them to seminars and trainings that can improve their knowledge about the business.
Keep your employees motivated by giving incentives and moral support.
Give your employees a sense of belonging by allowing them to give suggestions on how to fine-tune and improve the general welfare of the business.

Increase your marketing
The only way to keep your old customers and attract new ones is to increase both your online and offline marketing. Fine-tuning your business also mean letting people know that you are still in business through consistent sending of emails and connection on social media. Doing this will help your customers that last patronize you like 5 years ago to know that you are still in business and thus patronize you again. I have a personal experience with this.
Reading my article on how to grow your business through online marketing part 1 and 2 can be of great help.
Make sure your customers are aware of your full product line or services.
Let everyone knows that your business exist online.

Do a sales analysis of your current customers
Do a little research to determine the following:
-The age bracket of your online customers
-Where are they from I.e is the largest percentage of them from search engines, through social media page, through free or paid online adverts or are they simply the end result of your offline advertisement?
Knowing these will help you to know which area of your marketing or activity you need to focus on or fine-tune in order to maintain and grow your sales.

Conclusively, putting all the above suggestions into practice can help you fine-tune and make your online business a better one.

Online Store And Shopping

Online store and shopping is gaining more popularity throughout the world, surprisingly in African countries. One of the major reasons for this trend is the faithfulness of the online store owners. On this account i give kudos to the pacesetters of online stores for their honesty and trustworthiness. If they have not been trustworthy, if there have been series of complain from buyers who pay and did not get their goods, online stores and shopping will not be at the level they are today.

Some of these online stores will even send their representatives to delivered the ordered goods at your doorsteps. Once again, kudos to the pioneers of online stores, the current online store owners, the buyers for putting their confidence and faith to purchase online, not minding the fact that they cannot see the people they are transacting with as well as the product they are purchasing.

Buying from online stores with their physical location in your country or state needs little trust.
What of those that buy from online stores with physical location in other country e.g someone in Nigeria buying product from online stores with physical presence in the USA. In such situation, the goods have to be sent over the sea and it is hard to complain or get your money back in case of error, loss in transit or fraud. But still, people keep putting their faith in online shopping and everybody keeps smiling.

Other factors which have made online store gain such popularity include or

Benefits of online store and shopping 
Advancement in technology
In the past, few people patronize online stores because many cannot afford the prize of obtaining computer and Internet connections. With computer getting cheaper and Internet connection becoming cheaper and possible through phones, many people find it easy to login to the Internet, search and order for product of their choice. Shopping online specifically become easier with the introduction of smart phones.

Shopping from online store is very convenient. You did not need to board a bus or cab to get what you are buying. The tangible goods like phones and electronics are either transfer to you through their agents or courier service. While intangible goods like ebooks and software are downloadable on your computer or phone immediately your payment is confirmed. You can shop anytime - in the morning, afternoon, night and everywhere - at home, in the office, in the car and even on the air.

The most interesting part of online store and shopping is the ridiculous cheap price you get goods.
Some products are tagged at a very low price online that you even wonder if they are in good condition. I was so fascinated by this ridiculous low price of online products that I was thinking of going into buying stuffs online and selling them offline. The reason behind this cheap price is that these online shops get their goods directly from the manufacturers with no middle men.

You enjoy your privacy while shopping online as you can prevent the people around you from knowing that you are shopping or what you are shopping.

To the best of my knowledge, i have not heard anybody complaining, though, there will be, that they bought substandard product or being fraud in some major online stores. This is because most online store products are bought directly from the manufacturers. Since these online stores are either owned by individuals or group of people who depend on it for a living, they are ready to disassociate with any manufacturer that sell substandard product to their customers.

Availability of virtually everything
Like in the real world, there is virtually nothing you cannot get from online. Phones, T-shirt, car, books, software, electronics, music, videos, just name it. Young and old, male and female can get their want online. There are things that you find hard to get offline, may be because they are being sold in a far location but which you get with ease online through just pressing of keyboard and clicking of a mouse.

Though online stores and shopping cannot send traditional shops and shopping into oblivion, only time will tell whether it will overtake it in terms of market sharing ratio. Meanwhile, the purpose of this article is to open the eyes of merchants, manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers of the need to join the early trend of online stores while individuals are encourage to give buying from reliable online store a try in order to benefit from this awesome gift of science and technology.

How To Create And Add Contact Me About Me And Privacy Policy Pages On Your Blogger's Blog

Importance of contact us, about us and privacy policy on your blog

Putting contact us, about us and privacy policy on a visible place on your blog is especially important if you are applying for Google Adsense and if you are selling products or providing service on your blog.
The contact us page is one of the most vital page to have on your blog or website because it allows your visitors, bloggers, customers and even advertisers to reach you. Through contact us page, visitors can tell you what they like and dislike about your site or about features they might want you to add. Customers can praise or complain about your product or service through the contact information you provided and this will help you to know your strength, weakness, opportunities and treat (SWOT).
knowing your strength will let you know which area of your services you need to concentrate on. You need to work or correct your weakness, suggestions from your customers and others can also expose you to opportunities that is still available for tapping. Your customers or visitors complaint is a treat to your business. For you to stay in the market and compete favorably with your rival you must work on your customers complain.

There are 2 type of contact us page. One is by providing, in form of text, just the basic information such as the name, physical address, email address and the telephone number among other important data you wish to list. The other one is to generate an HTML form for visitors to fill out the required field.

I choose the former as I just put my name, my email address, phone number and my Facebook fan page address on my contact me page.
If you prefer the latter you can visit Google docs to generate an HTML contact form.

On the about me page, I provided my name, my professional (offline & online) experience, the purpose of my blog and my vision and mission for the future.

Meanwhile, I generated my privacy policy from SerpRank.com

Some websites and blogs put their contact us, about us and privacy policy at the bottom of their site, some at the top header and some at the right or left hand side of each web page.
The one I know is the one that will appear as a static page at the top header beside the home page.

How to do it!
1. Go to your blogger dashboard

2. Click on the pages tab

3. Click on the new page

4. You will see two options, a blank page and web address

5. Choose blank page

6. Name the page contact us or contact me depending on your preference

7. Copy and paste the contents you have generated for your contact us or me page

8. Press on saving arrangement at the top right corner

9. Congratulation! You have added contact us/me page to your blog

10. Repeat the same process for about us and privacy policy
Your new pages will appear as horizontal menu beside the home page

It is really imperative to have a contact us/me about us/me and privacy policy on a visible position on your blog as they give your site maturity and show that it is run by human. You should also know that your blog has about zero chance of getting approved for Google Adsense if you are not showing these pages on your blog or website.

Social Networking And You

A social network is as website which allows people to staying connected with their friends, family, employees, employer, customers and to share information to and from these people. 

Facebook is the largest and the most popular social network and is estimated to be the 3rd largest, behind only China and India, if it were a country.
Other social networking websites are twitter, linkedin, pinterest, MySpace, whatsapp,Google +, YouTube among others.

Social network is popular because people consider it to be faster and cheaper than the traditional and other medium of communication. 

With social networking you can keep in touch with your friends without seeing them for many years.
It can be used to spread breaking news within minutes. 

With social network nothing seems to be a secret. For instance, in Nigeria, four students of one of the Eastern  state university were brutally killed by some ethnic taut. It was difficult for law enforcement agency to figure out the perpetrators of this evil because no clues seem to be available. 

Unknowingly to the perpetrators, one person was secretly taking the video clip of the scene with his handset and the face of the murderers clearly captured. The video clip was uploaded to YouTube and facebook days after and this help the police to easily fish out the murderers.

The benefits of social networking is countless and so is the shortcomings. If care is not taken, the shortcomings can even outrweight the benefits.

 Social networking can be time consuming keeping you away from doing other vital activities. This is because there are many activities going on social networking sites ranging from music, video, games, uploading and sharing of contents, pictures etc 

Spending too much time on social networking can lead to obsession, stress and anxiety. 

Budget the time you want to be spending on social networking and learn how to quit when your time is up.

Social networking can help to keep you in touch with your friends and family when they are not around but it can as well help to keep you apart when you are around each other. Do not let the time you spend on social networking affect your association with your family and friends.

Select your friends wisely. Don't send to or accept friend request from people you hardly know. Accepting friend request from everybody can be dangerous. 

If you received a friend request from someone you don't know, the best thing is to ignore it. Don't accept friend request out of pity or because you don't want to hurt someone's feeling. 

There is absolutely nothing bad if you delete any of your friends that are posting disgusting contents on your or his/her timeline.

You should be selective about your social networking friends as you would offline. Though, social network help you to connect with your friends from the past, but sometimes it is better if you never reconnect with such people again.

To make the best out of your friendship on social networking, the right things are: not to accept anybody you don't know as friend and to delete anyone that makes you feel uncomfortable. 

You should know that with one bad post your reputation can be ruined. Therefore, use your social networking presence to build a good reputation for yourself by posting quality and informative contents

Most employers today, access all applicant's social network profile to know who they really are. Some users has lost their job or have their application turned down because of what they have posted on their social media page.

Always post a picture that says something good about you.

Avoid the use of filthy, flirty, immoral dirty language on your post or comments.

information about yourself and where you are each moments on your social network page. Revealing your privacy can put you and your family in serious danger.
