Okay, we all know the internet is crawling with scammers. Lets rule them out for a second. Lets say you’re a genuine person who sells items online. It could be clothes, electronics, artificial hair, sex toys…whatever. You post in online groups looking for customers. Why the fuck would you use pictures of wazungu in your ads? Like, everyone today either has a smartphone or has easy access to one. How much time does it take to snap genuine photos of your product so that people see it’s the real shit? You post a dress of a celebrity in a tight bodycon dress, someone buys it, then you deliver something totally different you sewed fwaaaaa at the local tailor. This person then goes all over chochio media tarnishing your name. Hapo umesaidikaje? You’ve lost a return customer, and several potentials.
It’s like those barbers who have that poster of Ludacris among other American celebs. Surely, ukiambia hiyo ghaseer ikunyoe hizo style kimehang hapo, ataanguka ngu! Some things just sound like common sense, but bonobos ni kina nani? Mimi if you post a photo of something you’re selling, and it doesn’t have a “Kenyan setting”, sahau kabisa. Nataka kuona vitu kama ukuta ya creme, sign ya MPESA, dirisha iko na grill, gari iko na number plate ya Kenya…you know, Kenyan stuff. You could still be a conman, but at least you put some effort into making your hustle appear genuine.
Most successful online sellers post lots of photos of their product, from different angles. Even videos. And they’re very open about their prices, terms and conditions. Another disgusting tabia…jinga posts something on a public page, alafu when someone asks the price, the seller says “inbox”. Mimi nikufuate mpaka inbox ndio uniambie bei ya kitu unauza? Juu unanisaidia saaaaaana? Kwani nina masaa mengi aje ya kupoteza? Inbox ingiza mamako, ghaseer. Kenyans, you need to seriously up your game, tucker tucker nyinyi.
Most of these sellers Ni wale wako na kiosk mentality vile Bob collimore alisema. Just doing something or a business because umesikia iko na profit. So these meffi sellers will market online because wanasikia utapata more clients na they don’t know how to do it properly
Nimekubali hii Story ya seller kusema inbox na hauweki Bei Ni ufala
Hata kuweka downloaded photos Ni ufala. Weka the original photo. Kama Ni nguo mtu avae.
Hata hizi Somali restaurants zina weka downloaded photo ya food kwa ukuta na hata haziko kwa menu. Meffi hao
Good post. I think shosho media is not beneficial to most of the foolish folk today while it should be. If one is not willing to display the price online anafanya nini kutangaza…?that right there should be a sign/red flag that kuna kitu anaficha. Either selling faulty stuff or hiding from the tax man.
Where systems work online biz is the thing. Out here that’s how we make the extra bucks … It is very possible to buy a car on facebook and sell it 2 days later. Everything inaanikwa live including any faults that may be present. Yaani unabuy commodity as it is …
