About Khonala

Khonala was start­ed by me Besana Motha to share my expe­ri­ence in online mar­ket­ing and how you can build a suc­cess­ful blog and get traf­fic. Khonala sim­ply means right here. This blog comes after I have tried sev­er­al times to make it online, so on this blog I share my per­son­al expe­ri­ences.

Am I and how did I get started?

I’m a South African guy born in the Province of Mpumalan­ga and grew up in the rur­al areas where com­put­ers where rare to find. But I man­age to get my hands and my mind on how com­put­ers work at the right time when every­one was think­ing about doing IT to get bet­ter job.

Back in 2009 I was a stu­dent doing my assign­ments in com­put­er labs, while there I would see online ads and pay a bit of atten­tion to them. As we all know by that time the inter­net had already reach Web 2.0. The most ads that caught my atten­tion were on How To Make Mon­ey Online.

I even­tu­al­ly tried some sur­veys then got tired of them, then bloggging caught my atten­tion, then start­ed fol­low­ing a few top blog­gers.

Even­tu­al­ly I was done with school­ing, then In 2012 I decid­ed to start a blog, but I did­n’t real­ly know about how much con­tent I should cre­ate. It sur­vived for a year then went under. Mind you in school I majored in Web Devel­op­ment and every­thing that has to do with Pro­gram­ming. It didn’t inter­est me that much though, even though most of my post ware pro­gram­ming relat­ed at first.

What caught my atten­tion was search engine opti­miza­tion and inter­net mar­ket­ing in gen­er­al. Although I got small IT jobs in web devel­op­ment for small com­pa­nies, SEO always found a way to my work sched­ule. Even though most web devel­op­ment com­pa­nies don’t con­sid­er it that much I saw it’s impor­tance.

Then along the I came even more about pay per click and oth­er types of online adver­tis­ing. So on this blog I share all my knowl­edge that I have acquired through out the years. This blog should be one your book­marked blogs so that you con­stant­ly get new post.

Just to answer a few questions about online work including blogging

The most impor­tant thing for any site is to get traf­fic, after get­ting that traf­fic then what?

This takes us to mon­e­tiz­ing your blog, which con­fus­es most begin­ners. Stick around for qual­i­ty posts that will give you insights on how to do it.

Would Blog­ging or Start­ing a online busi­ness work for you?

That’s a ques­tion most peo­ple ask them­selves, all I can say is that it takes a lot of hard work and ded­i­ca­tion. It wont hap­pen in one day, it takes time to build.

Do you need tech­ni­cal skills to suc­ceed?
