Hello guys, so I have been getting a lot of questions about digital marketing and online entrepreneurship from many people.

So I have decided to open this question and answer thread to ensure that my responses can assist a lot of you out there.

      Hi Brian, thank you for getting in touch. Let me respond to your questions.

      1. When opening on Upwork you can use South African or Mozambique address. I heard someone say its working for them that way.

      2. Digital marketing is very broad actually. Some of the specialisations under digital marketing include search engine optimisation, copywriting, social media marketing, email marketing etc. You will have to choose a field that you prefer. To get started, you can take this free Fundamentals of Digital marketing course on Google.

      https://learndigital.withgoogle.com/digitalskills/course/digital-marketing
      The comprehensive course has over 25 modules and an exam at the end. Everything is done online and when you pass you get certified. From there, you can come back and ask me about a particular specialisation and I will advise you accordingly. You can take this course on a desktop or on a mobile device.

      3. There are a lot of ways to earn online. Again, it comes down to your preferences, skills and passion. For a start, you can read my free e-book titled ’25 Ways to Make Money Online’

      In the book, I outline each method so that you can get an understanding and choose one which you would want to explore further.

      Added to that, I regularly interview people earning money online and they share their tactics and tips. I interview them via Facebook live on my page at fb.me/taylorchiyangwa.

      You can see one interview I had with someone who is earning money by doing software reviews online and you can watch it here.

      I hope this answers your questions. I am looking forward to hearing your progress. Its not easy to get started with making money online but if you have the dedication you can make it.

      All the best and thanks again for your question!

    As someone who wants to start an electrical business i would love to sell my products online to reach a much broader customers i wl be dealing with supplying electrical spares for both industrial commercial and domestic audience wl love to put my products online and Also i wl be doing 24hr services and repairs to everyone and i still need a website

    • Taylor says:

      Thank you again Nesta, you did well by asking for advice at the planning stage.

      To sell your stuff online you need to first create an online presence for your business. Listing your business on Google maps is a great way to do this. You can learn how to do this in this post.

      Having a website will also help you reach the reach your audience. There are many aspects that contribute to having an effective website. I have a full post on this and you can read the post here.

      For the 24 hour services, you can have alerts on the websites that will notify you when a request comes through. Having social media presence and running advertising campaigns will also help push your business forward.

      You will also need to know your customer pain points so that you can structure your marketing campaigns. I have written an article on customer pain points and you can read it here.

      I would need to know a few more details. Is your market local or international? Do you want to sell via your website? Will you be doing the repairs in a limited geographical area?

      Hope this helps you. Looking forward to hearing further thoughts from you.

      Hi Nkosi, sorry for the late reply. Yes, I have made money online in Zim and I am not the only one. I have made money from affiliate marketing and even through this blog. Like I am always saying, making money online is not geographically-dependent. Anyone anywhere can make money online. I take it you want to get started with making money online.

      Its not an easy road though, generally the journey on making money online follows these steps:
      1. There is the entry-level where you have lots of doubts.

      2. Loses stage/ learning stage. This is where you continuously make loses. Things like scams, buying a course software that you never use. Investing in a program that u don’t get returns from etc. This is where a lot of people give up
      3. Another level where u make a little bit of money. This stage will raise your faith and make you believe in earning online income.

      4. Another dangerous stage is one where you have information overload. This is where u now know what needs be done and how to do it. But just because u know a lot of things you don’t make a move hence with the knowledge u have u don’t make money.

      5. Information overload can also lead to the shiny object syndrome. This is doing just about everything that comes your way that seems more appealing than the program you are currently on. It just makes you lose focus and not build anything solid.

      And are many more stages

      We all go through these stages…

      U just need to understand where u are and make sure you overcome that.

      The ultimate truth is this, money can be made online by anyone. That should be enough to keep you going

    Hi,currently I have free blog page with WordPress…how does one make money using WordPress?
    2.what are the benefits of an Email list?
    3-mostly when you want to do something online they ask for the Visa card details, how I know it is a genuine source before giving Visa details?

    • Taylor says:

      Hello Timothy, a free blog is usually not good if you intend to monetise as it has limitations. I would suggest a self-hosted blog if you want to take your blogging seriously and make money from it.

      2. An email list is very very important. It helps you grow your blog and it also can help you monetise. You can use your list with affiliate marketing and other monetisation methods. Check out my free e-book on ways of making money online and see the section on email marketing. Get the free book here

      3. Can you give examples of programs that ask for your bank details?
