How to make money in Uganda online with Facebook

making money on facebook

Have you ever asked yourself how you can make money in Uganda online with Facebook? A lot of you may be wondering how this is even possible. Facebook had 1.1 billion users as of May 2, 2013 and the number keeps growing. Uganda has over 500,000 Facebook users with a 1.7 % penetration rate.

This means there is still room for improvement as Uganda is a growing country. The average user spends 2-4 hours on Facebook on a daily basis. By now you are probably wondering how it is even possible to make money in Uganda online with Facebook. Well here is how.

Selling products

It is the easiest way of making money in Uganda via Facebook.  Facebook is popular and it is the most visited website on earth. Even if you were to have an e-commerce website, having a Facebook fan page is indispensable for the success of your business. Ugandans, going by their nature are not likely to access any website apart from Facebook.  I will always give Kenya as an example because they are the trend setters in the region. What’s more appealing is that you don’t need your on page in order to make money in Uganda online with Facebook. Taking a look at soko nyeusi, a Kenyan selling group will confirm my assertion. There are people who are making a fortune out of the group.

The disconnect with Ugandans

As much as we would like to play, it is also important that we work. There are a lot of pages which are of no value to Ugandans.  Facebook should not only be used for social advancement but for economical purposes as well. I joined a group called Owino market with the pre-emptive of trade. I must admit it was contrary to my expectations. If only we could borrow a leaf from Kenyans.


How to really make money in Uganda online with Facebook
