A code will appear if you chose “Yes” and you are required to visit Netflix’s activation page https://www.netflix.com/activate on your PC.

How To Change Full Name on Fiverr

6 comments
Africans, especially Nigerians have found out that Fiverr favors people from first world countries like the UK and the US. This has led many to devise means of getting a foreign account so as to enjoy all the benefits accruing to these accounts. We will look at how to change your Full name on Fiverr in a bit.

how-to-change-full-name-on-fiverr


Fiverr as we all know has developed so much in their algorithm that they disable people at any slightest mistake. These mistakes are brought about by either forgetting to make use of a strong VPN service that is used to change the location or during verification.

During verification, you are allowed to upload an ID that shows the name you provided while creating a gig on Fiverr matches with the name on the ID.

Funny enough, many people fail to change the names before going through the verification process. This leads to an outright ban of the account by Fiverr.

After gig creation, however, there is no other way of changing your full name on Fiverr without first of all deleting all your gigs and starting afresh. Deleting a gig that you have worked for months to rank is not a solution as there will be no need for creating the account after all.

Although the full name and other details are not visible to your clients, Fiverr team make use of it for crosschecking the IDs you upload for verification.

On this article, we would be looking at a way of changing your Fiverr full name without deleting all your gigs.

HOW TO CHANGE YOUR FULL NAME ON FIVERR

To change your full name on Fiverr, you will need to access the page where it is located. This page only appears when you want to create a new gig after deleting all your previous gigs. After much research, I found out that you can access this page by directly going to it. To change the full name of your Fiverr account, go to this page https://www.fiverr.com/seller_onboarding/personal_info

This will open up a page that contains the former full name and other details you used earlier when creating your first Fiverr gig.

After filling the original details on your ID and saving it, you can now go ahead and verify your Fiverr account without any fear of getting banned by the team.

Conclusion:
Did this help you change your full name on Fiverr? Let me know about it. You can share your other Fiverr problems on the comment section of this page and I will reply you immediately.
Do well to share the post on social media and help your friends change their full name on Fiverr.

UBA Partners With Google To Provide Free Wi-Fi in Different Locations In Lagos And Nigeria

No comments
There is this quest for a free internet connection by most people in the world, especially third world countries where internet fees are so high. Recently, Google Inc. partnered with the United Bank of Africa (UBA) to provide free internet connections to Nigerians. Currently, the service can only be accessible in some parts of Lagos with a promise to increase it to about 200 locations across 5 cities in Nigeria


HOW THE FREE WIFI WORKS

Google and UBA have partnered to provide this service and it is similar to Facebook’s EXPRESS WIFI. It can only be accessed from the locations provided. They have a plan of expanding to other parts of the country – 200 locations by the end of 2019.


Where can I get the free Wi-Fi in Lagos?

The locations where you can get the public Wi-Fi in Lagos include UBA HQ, Bank Road, Marina, Lekki Admiralty, Allen Avenue, Matori Fatai Ateri, Oke Arin, Tisco Plaza Alausa Ikeja, Ogunlana Drive Surulere, Warehouse Road Apapa, Aspamda Plaza Trade Fair.

This was brought in collaboration with 21st-century technologies in a bid to make more people able to connect to the internet.

Conclusion
I think this is a very great move by Google and UBA and should be extended to different parts of Nigeria. This will not only make people get connected to the internet but will cause a great reduction in the fee charged by network providers for data.

By What Criteria Are the Applicants of Tony Elumelu Foundation Funding judged?

No comments
The Tony Elumelu entrepreneurship foundation (TEF) is an empowerment program established in 2010 by Tony Elumelu which is focused on investing in businesses and startups owned by Africans.  We would be looking at the criteria used by the Tony Elumelu Foundation for judging applications submitted by African entrepreneurs.



It is a 10-year program that is committed to investing over $100 million each year in identifying, training, and funding ten thousand entrepreneurs across Africa.
The application for this year’s program started on the 1st of January, 2019 and ends on the first day of the month of March. Over the years, so many people have been wondering the criteria that they use to judge applications and how they select winners.

What criteria are used by the Tony Elumelu Foundation for selecting businesses?

Earlier this year, the foundation on their Instagram handle, brought out a list of the criteria used by their judges to select businesses that benefit from their program. Below are the criteria used by the Tony Elumelu Foundation for selecting businesses in no particular order:

Leadership potential and entrepreneurial skills: businesses that are selected are those that demonstrate leadership potential, capable of attracting people, customers, and resources on their own. This involves both the business owner and the business. Is the idea you are trying to get funding for capable of having steady streams of customers patronizing you? How do you intend to pilot the affairs of the business?

If your answer to these questions is true, then you are likely to be selected.


Market opportunity: do you as the business owner understand the market, customer, and competitors for the idea or business you want to get funding for? This is seen on how well you describe the market, the competitors and the customers in your application. If you seem not to have in-depth knowledge about all these, the judges get to find out and you know what that means?

So, before application, make sure you have all the necessary knowledge about this and then, put them in writing, showing how passionate you are and boom! You are likely to be selected.


Scalability: does the idea or business you are trying to get TEF funds for, demonstrate the potential for replication and growth for its product or service to create jobs and wealth? Does it have the ability to be done in several places and employ people? If yes, then you are likely to get selected.


Financial understanding: do you understand the basic financial requirements of running a business, costs, and revenues? This is easily seen in the way you do the calculations in your application. Most of the time, people who want to start businesses don’t know the basics of finance, costs and revenues of the business they want to start and they tend to fold up within the first year of operation.


Feasibility: is the idea or business you are trying to get the Tony Elumelu Foundation funding for feasible? Most times, we tend to submit ideas that we know can either not be done in this part of the world or that are just impossible.

Last words:
All Africans are given equal opportunities of getting the funding and so, you too can get it even if you are not from Nigeria where Tony Elumelu comes from. All the 54 African countries are welcomed so far as the idea meets the aforementioned criteria.
It is important also for you to note that your business might be rejected even if it meets the criteria above based on some other grounds. Some of which are:
  • If the business is more than 3 years old
  • The business is not based in Africa
  • The business owner or the application does not meet the other eligibility criteria for the selection.
  • You do not provide a clear description of what you intend to pass across in one or more sections of your application.

If you meet these criteria and the eligibility criteria, then your business is likely to get selected. Remember to share with your friends so as to make guided applications and get the chance of your business being selected.


You can also ask any question as concerned with the criteria used by the Tony Elumelu Foundation (TEF) in selecting businesses for funding using the comment box below and we would get back to you immediately.

In this 21st century, skills are the things that one need- digital skills because we are in a digital age where technology rules.

best-skills-to-learn-in-2019


In this article, we will be looking at a list of best digital skills that you need to learn this 2019 if you want to make money or remain relevant in the IT world. These skills are not only for the year 2019 but for a lifetime.

Many people have built houses and established companies through these skills and they do so by offering their services on different freelancing websites scattered all over the internet. Some of these websites include fiverr.com, upwork.com, freelancer.com, peopleperhour.com, seoclerk.com, etc.

You can check these freelancing websites to have a clearer picture of what we are talking about. The truth is that anybody can learn any digital skill and all it takes is just to be determined, focused and dedicated to the struggle and you will get there.

Best skills to learn in 2019

This list is of no particular order i.e. no skill is better than the other as people make lots of money even from the skill you think is of less importance. A visit to the aforementioned freelancing websites will make you see reasons.

Writing

crafting great contents for websites, sales pages, blogs, and indeed for all digital platforms is a very great skill you should acquire in this 2019.

You can watch free tutorials on writing depending on the niche you want to specialize in on YouTube, EDX, or other free tutorial websites, read blogs that cover tutorials on how to write, or you can buy premium courses on Lynda, Udemy, etc. Writing is a skill worth spending money to acquire.

This is the era of eBooks and you could make lots of money researching on a problem, providing a solution for it in writing, sell it and make cool money from it. I wrote an article on how to get started HERE.

You can start a blog just like this one, write great contents that will drive traffic to your blog, and then monetize it using the different ways of monetization. You can use Google AdSense, Media.net ads, affiliate marketing, CPA, or even sell your products on your blog.

You can offer your writing services on several freelancing websites and make cool money. Some earn as much as $5000 to $10,000 dollars monthly on these freelancing websites as a side hustle, while doing their daily jobs.

Public speaking

This is another skill that seems to stand the test of time. In this 21st century, many people earn a living from making great video tutorials and monetizing them on YouTube, Udemy, Lynda.com and other video hosting sites. You can also make your video, advertise it yourself as a course and sell it to your customers for a fee.

Also, podcasts are made on certain topics, webinars, other forms of recording are made, marketed and sold to people who paid for them.

You can also utilize this skill by being an MC on occasions, get a job in media houses and the likes. On freelancing websites, you can sell your services by doing voiceovers, jingles, and drops, create advert videos and all that for clients and get paid.

You might be asking this question “Where can I learn the art of public speaking?” There are tutorials out there as well – free and paid tutorials on the internet from where you can learn these things. A simple Google search will show you a list of tutorials you can listen or read about on it. You can also learn this art by listing to podcasts and tutorials and noting their styles and then, improve on yourself.

Web development

Yes! Website development is a great skill you should consider as this year 2019 is starting. Almost all meaningful businesses are on the internet and more are seeking ways of getting on the internet.
Web development is a very vast field and there are several technologies. This makes it good for us to tell you that you can just choose an aspect and become a master in that area.

best-skills-to-learn-in-2019


People have also made life easy by developing content management software (CMS) that makes it easy for people to design stunning websites without knowing how to code. Some of these CMS systems include WordPress, Joomla, Magento, Drupal, October, SilverStripe, MediaWiki, Kentico CMS, etc.

These CMS systems are designed for different uses but the most popular one used for designing websites for businesses is WordPress. It has almost everything you want and has beautiful themes, plugins, and supports that will make you build amazing websites without having any programming knowledge.

Apart from using CMS systems, you might want to learn how to write and build websites from scratch or almost from scratch. If this is the option you want, then you can start by learning web programming languages like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, PHP, node.js, Angular, etc. Or some frameworks that were built on these languages like Laravel, Cake PHP, Symphony and others.


You can find great tutorials on any website development language, CMS and everything that you want for free on YouTube. But if you want to get premium courses, then you can check out great tutorials on Udemy, Lynda, and other online schools. For a start, go for YouTube videos and grasp the fundamentals of web development and how they work.


You can get paid for your services also on these online marketplaces or you get your clients offline too. You can meet businesses around your area, show them samples of websites you have/can build and talk to them about the importance of owning a website. You can find information on the importance of owning a website HERE

There is also this misconception that not everyone can code which is NOT TRUE. All you need is to be determined to learn how to code and the sky will only be your starting point. There are medical doctors, barristers, school dropouts that code and so, you too can code.

Software development

Apart from website development, you can also learn how to build standalone applications for different operating systems. When I mean standalone applications, I mean applications that can be installed on operating systems and can work on their own without depending on others.

You can learn how to build Android applications, windows application, iOS applications, etc. They are not rocket science although they can be challenging.

You can learn Java, Kotlin, C++, C#, Python, etc. as regards the operating system you want to develop applications for. You might have to make some more research and know the best ways of developing applications for the operating system of your choice, all it takes and the development environments you have to set up on your machine to be able to do the job.


Just like the aforementioned skills, you can monetize these applications as well. There are ways of monetizing applications which could be by making some features premium, going for AdMob by Google, etc. You can also open an agency and develop applications for businesses to solve their day to day problems.

Tutorials on how to get started are scattered all over the internet and most of them are free as well. Just start today and you will be glad you did.
