Now that you know what a forum is. You’re probably wondering, who qualifies to do this job.
And this is sweetest part, everybody. Anybody who can construct a correct English sentence can start earning their money right away. I mean you can earn money before sunset. Isn’t that cool? I believe it is.
How to make money with forum posting
You know it’s possible, you know you can do it, so how do actually make the dough. Am glad you asked…
You earn money in two simple ways:
- Start a thread; starting a thread is simply updating your status on the forum. Just like you would start a discussion on a facebook group by updating your status, it’s that simple.
- By commenting; you will also earn money by contributing comments to other peoples’ threads. Just like you would comment on other people’s status on facebook or whatsapp Easy, don’t you think?
How much can I make….
When it comes to how much you can make, the average is between 12000 and 24000, while for the extra hard working go getting hustlers, you can make up to 100,000. Yes, rub your eyes if you want to, but that the plain truth, and all these with zero investment, no degree, diploma, C.V, interview, everything in the comfort of your own living room.
Just a plain simple Smartphone and a few coins to buy air time internet bundles.
The mathematics is simple; you make between, 5-15 shillings ($0.05-0.15) per new thread or comment, in a day you can make more than 100 comments. That puts you between 500 – 1500 shillings every day.
The amount you make per post simply depends on the quality of your posts. Which is rated between 0 and 5?
The lowest rate being 3.5 and the highest being 5; a rating of 3.5 will fetch you KES 5 per post, while a rating of 5 will fetch you KES 15. And anything below 3.5, you are disqualified.
The rating can also grow as you make better quality comments. Thus if you start with a 3.5 rating, you can work your way to the top. Increasing your pay per comment by almost 300% Meaning, you can triple your income from 15000 to 45000 a month. A sweet deal
I started at 3.8 and my current rating is 4.3, and I make 8 shillings per comment. I type faster now than I did, and you will too.
HOW TO WITHDRAW THE MONEY TO YOUR M-PESA
You made the money, how do you actually get it to your hands.
You get the money via M-pesa account or through the bank. But before you get them to your bank or M-pesa account you will be paid via an online platform known as PayPal. PayPal is like an online M-pesa, and it is the most trusted worldwide online money transfer. I have been using PayPal for all my payments and have never had a single problem with them.
So when you work for the forum owners, you will be paid to your PayPal account, which I will talk about later. When the money gets into your PayPal account, you can now transfer to your bank account; I personally use equity bank. Or you can transfer via a Kenyan online money transfer agency like ‘pesapal’, freelancerkenya.com to get the money into your M-pesa account.
The equity bank transfer, whom I prefer, takes about 8 working days to complete, but I get a better dollar to shillings rate. So I always choose to wait and I have never had a problem with them. However when I need quick cash, I use the services of freelancerkenya.com (owned by Walter Akolo). He is so good and fast, you get your money within 3 minutes after the request. And if he ever runs out, he is always willing to refer you to another trusted money transfer option.
HOW TO REGISTER AT PAYPAL?

Verify your account via equity bank

How do I get started…?
I remember I was in a seminar, talking to a group of young enthusiasts, and I was going on n on n on, about how you can make money online, and this boy (Davie) just stopped and asked me, how we get started. Just hit the nail on the head… so if you are like Davie, here we go.
Let me repeat this, you can start making money as soon as today. No joke. And you actually have it in your pocket today.
The very first step to start working, is signing up to a forum where you will start earning money. The process is simple, you sign up, and do the simple 10 posts test and you get a rating and start working.
There are four forums I currently work for
Let’s start with my favorite:
