How to get started with Niabusiness freelance content writing service in Kenya as a client (how to hire me)

If you have made up your mind to order content from Niabusiness (meaning you are fine with the freelancing rates here), I can get to work – start researching and writing content on the topics and keywords of your choice. All you have to do is send me an email via the site’s contact form.

In it mention what type of content you want written (for example newspaper article, Kindle book, product description or blog post), topic for the piece to be written, word count, deadline and any other important detail you want taken into consideration during the writing phase of your project.

If you have examples of other pieces of content already published out there that you want me to pay attention to when creating content for you, send me the links to them. Add the URLs to the content pieces in the email you send me.

Once I receive your email (request to create content for you), I’ll get back in touch with you to further clarify things that you may want me to pay more attention to when working on your project/assignment (if there is need to).

You’ll then proceed to make payment. In Kenya, you can easily do this by sending the total amount via mobile payments services like Safaricom M-PESA or Airtel Money (I’ll communicate to you, via email, the details on how to finalize payment).

Note that you can also make payment using you card (VISA, MasterCard – like KCB Pepea debit card which you can top up using the funds in your M-PESA account, Discover, American Express etc.) or simply make payment via PayPal – or from any payment gateway that allows you transfer of funds to a PayPal account.

To make payments using your card or PayPal, go to this page on Niabusiness.com online shop to make payment (or get a quote).

Note that I can also send you an invoice to your PayPal email address – if this is the arrangement you prefer. You’ll get a notification and proceed to clear the invoice to release funds to my account. We’ll have to agree on this before I start creating content for you.

Select your word count (the exact number of words you mention in the email you send me via the site’s contact form).

Click (or tap) Add to Cart then proceed to checkout.

Enter your card details (or login to your PayPal account) to complete the transaction.

Once I receive the funds, I’ll get to work and send you back the completed work within the agreed time-frame.

Who is the content writing service for? [Benefits of hiring Niabusiness.com Kenya to write for you]

Niabusiness content writing service Kenya is for persons – individuals, businesses, SMEs, companies and organizations –  based in or outside Kenya who are interested in the services of a writer to give them content they can use to:

  • Educate their audience on a particular issue
  • Market and promote various ideas, products and services to their audiences (or a segment of a niche/market or industry they are a part of)
  • Promote their business, work, brand, personality to the people who may benefit from such (like customers, clients, employees, employers or people who make buying decisions in households and companies in different countries – like parents, CEOs, founders, board members)
  • Achieve the same (or even better) results they could get from paying for the services of a marketing company in Kenya, a digital agency in Kenya, content writing agency, virtual assistant service, inbound marketing company, search engine optimization and internet marketing companies charging hundreds of thousands of Kenyan Shillings or even millions for help with marketing / advertising – customer acquisition
  • To help prospects and their customers get as much useful information about what they do (provide) before they make any buying decision – including tips on how to get the most out of the services or products they pay for
  • Beef up their websites and blogs. The new content they pay for and publish on their sites can turn into a series of insightful posts that answer the questions prospects and customers may have – in essence turning their website (or blog) into a sort of a customer care agent available 24/7 to anyone with internet access – hence limiting the back and forth that often characterizes the initial relationship between an individual and a company that has not put in more effort into educating the public (consumers) about their products, services, benefits to paying for and using them, consumers’ rights and obligations etc.

Why hire freelance writers in Kenya?

When looking for a freelance writer to hire in Kenya, US, Canada, Australia or in any part of the world, there are many things – key characteristics – that you look for in your search for the right person to write content for you. For example:

You want to hire a content writer in Kenya…

1. Who knows a lot about the topic you are interested in

Getting someone who knows about your topic and enjoys reading, researching and writing about it is a good thing.Why hire freelance writers

The person who is genuinely interested in your niche or topic – and has extensive knowledge – always is a good fit.

Sometimes that means hiring someone who has a college (university) degree, diploma, Masters or a PhD in their field.

But this is always not the case… because there are many people who are knowledgeable (and experienced) and highly excel in their fields without a degree or diploma certificate carrying their name.

This is the case, for example, with people who have gone out of their way to learn about something (and become very good at it) that they never learnt in school.

People who have read widely on a topic – and even shared their own ideas in the form of articles, guides, ebooks, articles, podcasts, blog posts, case studies or videos.

For example, there are many savvy business people who don’t attribute their success to having a degree.

They attribute it to simply immersing themselves in the business world, doing what needs to be done, analyzing the results of their actions and adjusting accordingly in the interest of their clients.

Interest in a topic (field) then, besides pure knowledge and the duration and magnitude of experience, is one key thing to look for when hiring a freelance writer in Kenya.

The writer should know a lot in the field you want them to write about but not only that.

They should also be able to research a topic and write you the best content possible – one that you will be happy to pay for.

2. Who listens and adheres to your instructions

When you want to avoid all misunderstanding between you and your writer, communication is going to be key.

For the writer to give you what you are hiring them for, they must be keen and listen to your instructions. After all you are paying for what you want.

This means that it is good when you (both you and your writer) understand each other – and both parties understand their obligations.

You both should be clear about the topic, word count, headline (title), formatting, outline, deadline, pay among other things that at the end of the day makes the transaction between both parties fruitful.

3. Who can write well and give you what you and your readers want

Hiring a writer means, to some level, that you know what to be expected of them when they finally submit the finished work to you.

You know what to be expected in terms of the quality and quantity of the content you pay for.

You know what your readers want, and that is what you pay (the freelancer) to get them.

Different people call it different names: Epic, well-written, great content, quality content, best-seller, ultimate guide among others.

And your writer is to deliver the above on the deadline you both agree on.

What does the above have to do with hiring freelance writers in Kenya?

As a freelancer offering writing services here at Niabusiness.com, I adhere to the key points above when creating content for individuals, businesses, institutions and organizations in Kenya and around the world.

Through my writing service, you are assured of well written content on your topic of choice. Why? Because I adhere to the rules above.

They guide how I interact with you and how I create articles, blog posts, sales pages, ebooks, books, guides, ecommerce website product description pages you order from me.

I could go ahead and tell you how Kenyans are great people who write well and speak, besides our mother-tongue and Kiswahili, English fluently but then that will be venturing further away from what it is you really want: great content for your readers channeled through your website, blog, niche site, ebook, book, downloads, guides, tutorials, slides, social networking sites, email newsletters and autoresponders.

When you hire freelance writers in Kenya, do so with the knowledge that

  • they are great people from East Africa who write just as well as native English speakers
  • they enjoy writing and doing online research
  • they are knowledgeable and ready to help you with your writing
  • they take online freelancing seriously – meaning they respect themselves, their work, the clients who hire them and the audience they write for (readers you want to reach with the writing you outsource to them)
  • they are people open to suggestions if such suggestions lead to an even higher quality of writing and a more satisfied client
  • they’d like to partner with you in your future projects
  • and like most humans, they, at the end of the day want to bring a meaningful contribution to the world and the people in it

And when I say ‘they’, I’m indirectly implying that I’d like to work with you.

If you are a mind reader, you already knew that from the start right?

So, what do you say?

How much do I pay to host my blog or website with you – and what’s the cost of domain name registration at Niabusiness.com Hosting?

In this page, we list the costs of domain names that use various extensions.

Here is what you need to know even before you check that page.

When you pay for hosting with us and the domain name you want to register ends with a .com, .net, .biz, or a .org, .co.ke extension, you’ll only pay the cost for any of the web hosting packages listed below.

No extra payments on domains.

However, domain names that end with extensions like .co, .go.ke, .info.ke, .co.tz, .name, .me, .mobi.ke, .or.ug, .ac.ug, .or.ke, .ne.ke, and .co.ug may cost a little more. How much you ask? The answers are here.

Now, to web hosting pricing. How much do they go for?

Currently Niabusiness Hosting Kenya offers three packages as shown below:

  1. Proven package – goes for Kenya Shillings 16,000 a year. Get this hosting plan now.
  2. Mediate package – goes for Kenya Shillings 11,000 a year. Get this hosting plan now.
  3. Starter package – goes for Kenya Shillings 6,000 a year. Get this hosting plan now.

Why is there a difference in pricing? Why are the hosting packages priced differently?

When you start a new website or blog, and work at it, the new site will gradually grow (get more readers visiting it at any given time, host more content – like articles, images and different files you add to it).FAQs on web hosting and domain registration in Kenya with Niabusiness.com Hosting

As your site gets bigger, it will need more resources (and more attention from us) so that it continues to grow – because that’s what you want.

You want to get more people to know about you, your ideas, business, organization or project – and if you are selling something, to get more people paying for and using your products and services.

So, as you move from Starter package to Mediate, Proven or any other package Niabusiness Hosting Kenya may introduce as time goes by, you get more power (bandwidth, disk quota and speed – so that your site loads fast even as it continues getting more visitors).

This is why there’s a difference – just like how you need to add more funds (airtime) to your phone if you want to speak longer without worries of being reminded by your operator that your call will be disconnected in a few seconds because of insufficient balance.

  1. Tell me what you want to do for me and why should I listen – if I want to create a website or blog in Kenya?

Niabusiness.com web hosting service helps businesses and individuals start their own quality websites or blogs.

That is what we want to do for you – make sure that you are the owner of a site that helps you achieve various goals (some listed in #2 below).

  1. Why should I even bother getting a website (blog)? And why do I have to pay for one when I can get one for free?

Some people don’t start their own sites because they don’t know the immense benefits that come with a quality site. [read 32 reasons to start a site PDF guide]

Some don’t start one simply because it takes a lot of effort to create a great site.

Some start their own sites using free services like wordpress.com, blogger.com, tumblr.com etc.

But you should register a domain name, pay for hosting and start your own site to get the benefits mentioned below:

  • Your own site will help you get in front of customers looking for the services you offer (or products you sell) via different search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex, Duckduckgo etc. Providing the right kind of information, could be the start of new relationships with prospects, business owners (offering complimentary services) etc – all in a place (your own site) you have control over.
  • Your own site will help you diversify the way you market your products or services. Just as you work hard to ensure that your ads on newspapers, magazines, online classified ad sites, radio, brochures, business directories or business card helps you achieve certain goals, a quality site will help you reach more – new customers or clients.
  • Your own site will help you let people know what you do, why you do it, what you can do for them, for how much, how they can  get in touch with you and much more.
  • Unlike many of the free sites which you don’t own and therefore have a limited say on how they should be designed etc, your own site is a free place. You can do anything with it. After all, it is yours. And as long as you build a quality resource and market it, the benefits that come with it can surpass those from the free sites.
  • Your own site enables you to capture the emails of people who visit your site. You can create a free incentive to get prospects to opt in your mailing list. This list can become handy in building stronger relationships with both your customers and prospects alike.
  • Blogging is one of the cheapest ways to teach customers and prospects through how to guides, videos, infographics, podcasts and more – and gain trust, widen reach and be chosen and paid for an outcome your customer wants.
  • Your can use your own site to take care of your customers. For example, you can compile all the questions people frequently ask concerning your services and products and create detailed posts (consisting of text, images, videos etc) about them, publish them on your site and make them accessible every second of the day to anyone with internet access – in essence a customer care rep that never sleeps!
  • Your own site will help you reduce the costs involved with getting feedback from your customers. You can add surveys to your site and invite them to participate – or ask them questions in your blog posts or email campaigns.

Paying for a domain name and web hosting (instead of starting a free site) in Kenya ensures that:

You get to do more with your blog or website. Free always comes with limitations and some of that can be overcome by getting your own self-hosted site – which Niabusiness Hosting makes affordable for you as shown on this page.

  1. How will you help me get my own blog or website (and how will I know that I am the real owner)?

We’ll let you know how to register your domain name and select a hosting plan. You’ll be required to enter your postal address, email, phone number and real name (details to show that you are the real owner).

If you don’t want to do all this, you can send us the details above and we’ll register the site for you (note that the passwords and usernames will be sent to your email. So make sure to provide a valid email address and make sure that all the other details are correct). You can easily change any of the passwords later if you want to.

Whenever you are ready, you can pay and your site will be up and running in a few hours.

BUT HERE IS WHAT WE LIKE DOING MOST: We discuss about your needs. You tell us about what you want your site to do. You tell us about all the things you want to include on the site (we prefer if you do this via email) and then move from there.

This may seem like a lot but preparation goes a long way in creating a great site.

  1. What if I want a blog, not a website with static homepage?

Your site will be powered using the self-hosted version of WordPress (which is found at WordPress.org – the default script we use to power sites though you are at liberty to use any other script (like the many available within cPanel script installer Softaculous to power your site).

Why? You won’t have trouble operating it. It is easier to use. Can have both static pages as the HOMEPAGE and a section dedicated to your posts – BLOG.

You’ll just have to tell us what you want.

  1. Where will the website (blog) be hosted?

Niabusiness has the capacity to provide web hosting and domain registration services.

Your site will be hosted by Niabusiness Hosting.

  1. Which domain name extension should I use?

The most popular one is .com. There are others like .biz, .org, .net, .co, .co.ke etc. some cost more than others. So, lots of choices. Read more about your choice of domain name extensions here.

  1. Can you please break down the costs involved in getting a new blog or website in Kenya with Niabusiness Hosting?

If you are going to register a domain name in Kenya with a .com, .net, .biz or .org extension and get hosting, plus get help in setting up your site, adding pages and making it work the way you want, you’ll only pay the cost for the hosting plan you choose.

Why? We know there are many people out there who’ll tell you to just pay for the domain name and hosting and figure out the rest (building a great site) by yourself.

This amount will ensure that you get a new site and someone to help you build it (as you learn more about sites etc.). Our experience will come in handy.

It may seem like a lot of money now. But don’t wait till you get your site and come face to face with reality (all the effort – time and money but mostly time – you’ll need to make it successful.)

  1. When can you start working on my blog (website)?

After the discussion to determine what you really want from your site.

We have seen people who really want their own sites but can’t seem to commit to building it.

A site cannot build itself. We will need your input.

If this project is to succeed, you’ll have to be ready to take action to ensure that the quality site you want becomes a reality.

That means that if you really want your website or blog to grow, you will agree to add new content to it on a regular basis – say by publishing at least 1 to 7 blog posts per week to beef the site a little bit – and have more content for search engine robots to crawl and index – resulting in more top 10 rankings for various long and short tail keywords.

Let’s talk about what you want, pay for a hosting package here and let’s get started.

  1. When will the site be operational?

After payment, one to four hours. During this time your site will still be under construction – with more content being added to it – and some more changes made to the site for it to work the way you want.

The content we will add to your blog or website include articles, MS Word documents and images you send to us via email – after payment.

  1. What will Niabusiness Web Hosting Kenya do for me?

On top of purchasing a domain name and paying for web hosting, we will also provide support.

Sometimes sites suffer from internal server errors (so that the site’s content may not be accessible to people who visit it) or your IP address is blocked or the site owner takes an action that triggers a fatal error – so that the site doesn’t function well.

Sometimes your site is hacked and infected by malware without your knowledge.

One thing that comes with every new blog or website is attention. They need attention to get you the results you want. That may mean time, money and lots of effort to ensure your site is ready for visitors who land on it.

It is very hard to run a site successfully without spending lots of time on it. That’s why some people cut shortcuts and end up hurting their sites.

Niabusiness Hosting Kenya will help you do the following:

  • make your site secure,
  • guide you on the things you need to do,
  • help you publish the pages and add the features you need using various plugins,
  • ensure your site doesn’t violate Google and Bing webmaster rules, setup your mailing list with MailChimp which is free (up to 2000 subscribers) or GetResponse (or Aweber or ConvertKit) which is not free,
  • add your free incentive or lead magnet (could be an ebook  or a short guide that you write – you can learn more here) to your site and make sure that people can get it after opting to your list,
  • add the necessary widgets to your site’s sidebar,
  • verify your site with Google, Bing, Alexa etc under your Gmail address,
  • give you a basic introduction to WordPress – to enable you confidently manage your site,
  • add Google Analytics ID to your site,
  • add a Facebook like box (and Follow me on Twitter button) to your sidebar,
  • add Google+ and Pinterest buttons to your site (including sharing buttons within posts and pages),
  • and help you create more quality content to rank in search engines (we’ll just share ideas you can use and not write content for you unless you want to pay for writing services as well). You’ll write the content and we’ll be there to guide you and optimize it before it is published on your site.
  1. When can I start seeing returns on my investment (website, blog)?

It depends on how much effort you put (towards creating a quality resource and marketing it) on this project.

Just don’t be swayed by some of the make money online posts that don’t tell the whole story.

Like everything else, this is going to require a lot of hard work, determination and yes, patience.

And talking about return on investment, remember to take your time answering these two questions:

  • Why am I starting this website, blog?
  • What do I want to achieve with this blog, website?

There’s a section to help you clearly answer these two questions in the ebook How to Start a Successful Blog in Kenya.

  1. What are the advantages of starting a website or blog in Kenya right now?

You open the door for new opportunities earlier:

  • The opportunity to turn a prospect to a customer (client) – who would have not found and worked with you if you had no site in the first place.
  • The opportunity to give people answers they need right when they need them: product reviews, how to guides, news, and more answers to questions that start with who, what, when, where, why and how. This is a time-saver.
  • The opportunity to connect with other people interested in what you do (could be customers or prospects). You can get feedback from them and learn more from their suggestions and behavior on you site – analyzing all this (behaviour and data) can help you tweak your site, products, create more content on a particular topic etc.
  • The opportunity to get linked to from other sites and get your content shared, reaching more people with your message – while increasing your domain authority.
  • The opportunity to create one place where all your customers can connect, get to know each other, help each other and more. A forum or membership area for example.
  • The opportunity to open an online store that is accessible every hour of the day. For example creating an online shop using the free WordPress ecommerce plugin WooCommerce.

And yes, a lot of experience and stories that can help you think of better ways to solve your customers’ problems, make your business profitable etc. Learn more here.

  1. What if I change my mind and want my money back?

We always take the time to discuss the needs of the client before accepting their money. We do our best to make sure the client gets full value for their money.

And when we get to work on your site, it takes a lot of time in front of the computer to build your site. But should we take the money because of this reason, even when you are not satisfied? No.

However, there are people who let us put in the hard work and then say they weren’t satisfied with the services rendered – using dishonesty to get things done for free. We don’t like this, and you wouldn’t either if you were in our position.

But what if a person makes a genuine claim and is really honest with us? They get a 30 day money back guarantee – full or partial refund – determined on a case by case basis.

  1. What are some of the things I can do to benefit from the website or blog I start?

We will be guiding you whenever necessary. This is to make sure that you build a quality resource that attracts quality traffic and helps you achieve various goals.

Feel free to ask questions. And best of all, be the person who takes action to ensure that you implement the recommendations we agree upon after every discussion we have.

  1. What if I don’t know anything about websites, blogs and how to maintain them?

There are lots of free and paid resources out there. Articles, podcasts, videos, courses and a lot more. If you want us to point you to some of them, do let us know. Or start with the articles on web hosting we publish on Niabusiness.com blog.

If you want someone to teach you more, we can do that, but this is a separate service that you’ll have to pay for. Let us know if you need this service as well.

If you want someone to maintain your site for long term, get in touch and let us know how we can help. Remember that this is a separate service.

  1. Can I have a personal blog (website) and another one for my business?

Yes. But before you start many sites, ask yourself the following questions (because it takes a lot of effort and time running just one quality website or blog):

  • Will one do? Why two or more?
  • Will I have enough time to make them all successful?
  • Can I just focus on one site right now and then start the other one later?
  • Do I really need another site now? Why? Is it because of excitement?
  1. Can I hire Niabusiness Hosting to maintain my website (blog)?

Yes. Remember this is a separate service. Get in touch for more information.

  1. Will you be available for consultation after I register my site with you?

Yes. By email, chat and phone – and sometimes in person.

  1. How will I pay the money for the domain name and hosting? [How to make payment to Niabusiness.com Hosting Kenya]

You can pay via Safaricom M-PESA. If you want to pay using another method, get in touch. Let’s talk about it first.

  1. What steps will you take to ensure my blog or website is a quality site?

In our discussion, after registering the site, we will (Niabusiness Hosting and you) come up with a few guidelines. These guidelines are meant to do one thing – help you achieve your set goals without taking shortcuts.

The services we offer are like steps to those goals. We’ll do everything legit and right to ensure you achieve these goals.

We’ll work together. You’ll keep your end of the bargain and we’ll keep ours. We will work hard and so will you. But if you are not ready for this, wait until you do (don’t start a website or blog now and just let it sit, with no new content). Wait until you want to build a successful site.

When you are ready and serious about building a great website or blog, get in touch with us here at Niabusiness.com.

The recommendations we’ll give you are meant to ensure you build a great site. If you keep your word, it will be great.

  1. Can I refer others to Niabusiness.com web hosting Kenya?

What if you want to be an affiliate and earn commissions for clients you refer – the ones who pay for the web hosting service Niabusiness offers? Sign up here and we’ll let you know when we launch Niabusiness Web Hosting affiliate program).

  1. What if I am not ready to start a website (blog) right now?

Save this page. And wait till you are ready for the responsibilities that come with a new blog or website.

Alternatively, you can decide to start learning and get your site in a few days or weeks from now.

You can also hire us to do everything for you. This will cost more and we can only give you a quote after discussing a few things: mainly what you want to achieve with your site and the specifics on what you really want Niabusiness Hosting to do for you.

Thought of improving it?

A little tweak here and there can get you more and better results. If you want us to help you with this, let us know via the contact page. We’ll let you know how we can help you – and give you a quote.

  1. What are some of the things I should know about regarding ownership of a website, blog security, traffic, conversion and quality?

  • When you register your new site, make sure that you use correct information e.g. name, email, address etc.
  • A successful site takes a lot of time and effort to build.
  • Always make sure that the content you add to your site helps your visitors fulfill a certain need – the reason why your site exists.
  • A lot of traffic doesn’t mean more sales, more loyalty or success. That is why it is better to focus on getting the right kind of traffic – that helps you achieve your short and long term goals. Also, make sure you capture user details for example by using email opt-in forms on your site.
  • A few simple tweaks here and there can immensely improve your site’s security.
  1. What must I do to make my site successful?

The success of a site is determined by the goals you want to achieve with the said site. I call this a blog mission – details are available in the ebook I mentioned above.

Without wasting your time, the answer is hard work, creating great content (and spending time promoting it), genuine relationships with other bloggers, entrepreneurs, customers and readers.
