Most of the content provided on Ronaldkaunda.com is free of charge. So, the question is how do I maintain the website, seeing that its costs to continue adding content for free.

Why is Ronaldkaunda.com Free?

Ronaldkaunda.com started in 2023 with a view to helping you the reader have deeper understanding of literacy issues especially in the context of Africa, and to share my views on African Indigenous knowledge systems.

As stated on my about page, my goal is to help students and researchers to find information on different subjects including language and literacy learning, education achievement and African Indigenous knowledge systems.

Simply put, Ronaldkaunda.com was created to offer you the readers, especially students and researchers conducting research in Africa, what I wish I had when I was a student.

Who Funds Ronaldkaunda.com?

I am answering this question in all honesty and transparency. I  do not receive any financial support from any individual or organisation. However, there are three ways that I finance the running of this website.

Referral Fees

I  earn referral fees when you buy services from companies that I recommend on this website. I only recommend products that I know are helpful to you. All opinions expressed in my recommendations are my own do not represent the owners of the services and products I recommend. Further, I do not accept payments for giving positive reviews.

The only time I earn money from any products or services that I recommend is when you purchase the recommended products or services using my links. In short, I am involved in affiliate marketing as a monetisation method.

When you buy products that I recommend through my links, you do not pay more than it originally costs. In some cases, you even get a discount.

When you click on referral links, you will be taken to a third part website. You will need to read the terms and conditions of that third party website. Further, how they use your information is beyond my control and I do not accept any damages arising from their use of the information that you provide.

In addition, I do not see your details when you purchase one of the recommended products or services through my referral links. The only thing I see is that an anonymous user made a purchase on date/time and which product or service they bought.

Discounted Products and Services

As stated above, I occasionally provide recommendations for products and services that are accompanied by discounts. However, it is essential to understand and acknowledge that the right to modify or terminate these discounts ultimately rests with the owners and operators of the respective products or services. I, as the promoter, do not bear any responsibility or liability for any changes, alterations, or discontinuation of these discounts. While I strive to provide accurate and up-to-date information, it is imperative for readers to recognize that any adjustments to the discounts are beyond my control and may occur without prior notice. Therefore, readers should exercise their own due diligence and verify the current terms and conditions of any discounts before making any purchasing decisions.

Google Ads

I sell advertising space on Ronaldkaunda.com through the Google AdSense program. Google AdSense is a program run by Google through which website publishers in the Google Network of content sites serve text, images, video, or interactive media advertisements that are targeted to the site content and audience.

These advertisements are administered, sorted, and maintained by Google. Businesses pay to advertise through AdSense. And site owners like me get a piece of that revenue based on clicks or ad impressions.

Selling Ad Space

I sell ad space on my website for individuals and organisations that want their ads placed on my website. If you need to advertise your business on my website, you can contact me.

Selling Courses

I create both free and paid courses. By purchasing courses on my website, you support the work I do to provide the much needed information to the public.

I believe that there are many people who genuinely need the information that I have. So, I ensure to reasonably price my courses so that I can benefit as many people as I can.

I need to mention that the pricing model and the price of courses on my website do not reflect the value that comes with the courses on my website. Feel free to check out my courses here.

Thank you for your support.
