Online Writing Jobs | Kenya Content Kings
All money earned online from home does not require the usual deductions for travel expenses or food purchased outside of the home. There is no need to have had journalistic training although this is of enormous benefit as the standard of English and the grammatical quality is very important. Each writing task may have different keywords that need to be used within the titles and content although these will be clearly stated within the details of the assignment before accepting the job. Online writing in Kenya is a job that many highly qualified individuals would love to do but lack the opportunity or the resources. We at Kenya Content Kings by Jobs in Nairobi, have made online writing from home possible by breaking down the barriers that prevent the online working force and entrepreneurs in Kenya from receiving payment.
We pay by MPESA. Most writing jobs online only pay via PayPal which makes it very difficult for Kenyan online writers to receive payment. Kenyan writers can have a PayPal account and receive payments but what good is that when one is unable to transfer money from a PayPal account to a Kenyan bank account. Accounts have to be UK or US based which is not a workable option for the majority of Kenyans who daily lose the opportunity to stay at home and earn more money than the average Kenyan makes for the whole day outside. Kenya Content Kings pay Sh150 for every approved 400-500 word article by MPESA. Any work carried out for the Kenya Content Kings will be paid for every two weeks and is subject to approval by our editors.
Update: PayPal is now industry standard so you must get a PayPal account in Kenya as soon as possible for those clients not willing to pay by MPESA. Then you have all bases covered. Find out why PayPal in Kenya is so important.
What Does Article Writing Entail?
To become a Kenya Content King you will need to first demonstrate your ability to write legible clear and original content that is interesting and easy to read. You may be a sports journalist or a news writer and this can be your chance to earn a regular income from the comfort of your own home. Writing articles requires that you can follow instructions regarding the type of article required and the angle that the article is trying to express. You will need to be able to write on any subject with some research and with Google being the original content king this should not be hard for qualified individuals. Never copy content from another website as this will be discovered and you will fail your entrance task and if you are performing a writing task your article will be immediately rejected on the grounds of plagiarism. The articles must pass Copyscape and if you do not know what Copyscape is then just Google it.
How long does it take to write an article?
Writing a 400 to 500 word article should take no more than 1 hour including research. Some articles may take a bit longer but as you perfect your writing and research techniques an hour should be more than enough time.
How much can I earn?
We pay Sh150 for every 400 to 500 word article and it is very possible to complete between 5 and 8 articles of a good quality every day (sometimes more). This means that it is possible to earn between Sh750 and Sh1200 per day which equates to almost Sh30,000 a month without working weekends. We have writers regularly producing 8 to 10 articles a day and earning themselves almost Sh40,000 a month without leaving their home. Exact income amounts can not be guaranteed as this depends on the number of writing jobs in the system. Articles are graded on quality and the higher grading that your articles receive the better chance you have of receiving jobs that pay more. Rejected articles will not be paid for. All articles remain property of Kenya Content Kings and must not be published elsewhere. Articles published elsewhere will evoke a payment clawback against your account and could result in being blocked from using our services.
Do I have the skills?
Writing articles may come naturally to some people whilst may need some practice by others. However, the standard that we expect is very high and we urge that only those with a minimum of a first degree and a strong written command of English should consider applying so that you do not waste our time or yours during the article approval phase. To be fair, if you feel that you are capable of writing quality content and want to make hundreds or thousands of shillings a day, take our entrance test and see if you have what it takes to become a Kenya Content King (or queen of course).
