  15. What about other Countries?

    Contact our Feedback or Social Media links below regarding your requirements.

  16. How do your Targeted Impressions work? How do you Mitigate against Fraud?

    An Impression is the equivalent of a Page View (Adjusted) as Reported on infoyote.com/stats.

    For instance, in the Top Line Statistics Report published on 25th July 2013, use the following Parameters to approximate how many Visitors your Banner Ad should reach in deciding your Marketing Budget:

    1 Visitor = 20 Impressions = KES 20 (10-30 Minutes Worth of Advertising)
    10,000 Visitors = 200,000 Impressions = KES 200,000
    100,000 Visitors = 2,000,000 Impressions = KES 2,000,000
    1,000,000 Visitors = 20,000,000 Impressions = KES 20,000,000

    Our Standard Size for Banner Ads is 50,000 Pixel Squared; A Banner 1.5 times the Standard Size is Priced as 1.5 Banners; A Banner twice the Standard Size is Priced as 2 Banners and so on.

    We have set a Minimum Value for Banner Adverts due to Brand Aesthetics and Usability Experience. We wish not to clutter our Portal. Therefore the service is suited for large Commercial Corporates, Educational Institutions and Government Agencies. Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) which cannot afford the same can take advantage of Directory Listing which also has 1-100% Brand Visibility options. Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs) can, in addition to Directory Listing, be engaged as Institional Partners. [ FAQ 3 ]

    A 24-Hours Free Trial can be provided to Monitor Performance of a Banner Ad and make necessary changes to the Banner and/or the Contract.

    Targeting helps to place your Ad in close proximity with relevant Content and to leverage your Budget. This means you can specify in your Request For Proposal which Pages and Sections you wish your Banner Ad to appear, their Frequency and Priority. Our Ads run Sequentially as demonstrated in the following example:



    As per the Statistics Report, and until further Data is collected and compared with other Third Party Analytics, 1 Unique Visitor = 20 Sessions (1 Repeat Visitor = 1 Session).

    Once you pay for a Banner, Login to My Account > My Banner Ad to view the Session ID, IP Address and Timestamp of your Visitors in Real-Time for your Auditing and Testing at any Time and Location. We DO NOT track the Names of Visitors due to Technical and Legal Constraints and because we respect their Privacy. Kindly note the distinction between our Visitors and Subscribers.

    Alternatively, we can source the Banner from a Web Server on your side using the tag so that you can monitor the traffic yourself. Our Assurance for Data Integrity is in the fact that we use multiple Third Party Analytics for the Statistics. They clearly report Human Visits and do not count Automated Visits such as those by Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) Bots. We are also testing Cloud Flare to further block suspicious Automated Visits.

    Furthermore, you can always check our Conversion Ratio between Visitors, Mailing List Subscribers, Directory Listings and Social Media Followers, currently at 80:10:1:1. At least this is fairly easy and more transparent because the Directory Listing Data is provided by the respective Person online. You may even contact some if you so wish.

    Finally, for Clients wishing to place Banner Ads for large number of Impressions (>100,000), an Advertising Contract can be provided. Therefore, we mitigate against Fraud with Legal, Statistical and Technical Measures.

    3. For Referrers tracking Visitors send Emails or share on Social Media the relevant Updates provided on infoyote.com/noticeboard or infoyote.com/press. Include a Referral Link as provided in the format hereunder, ensure 'REF=' contains your Referrer ID (which you Assign yourself but submit for RS2 upon Request for RS2) and is an Active Hyperlink i.e. Clickable. For example:
      Subject: Celebrate Kenya at 50
      Message: ... Celebrate Kenya at 50 - Nominate Business Daily 2013 Top 50 Under 50. For this and other Updates, See infoyote.com/?p=1&ref=gladiator ...


      Subject: 8,000 Visitors, 70,000 Page Views, 90,000 Minutes on Infoyote.com Ltd
      Message: ... About 8,000 Visitors had 70,000 Page Views and 90,000 Minutes on infoyote.com. See why you should not miss out! infoyote.com/?p=1&ref=gladiator ...
      You may then access your Real-Time Stats on Page 511 e.g. infoyote.com/?p=511&ref=gladiator

      Note: Even if the Visitors themselves do not pay for any Service promptu, we shall pay you and all other Referrers for the Visitor Traffic from Corporate Advertisement Revenue. We have Allocated 20% for this and shall be Appropriated and Distributed according to the Statistics (infoyote.com/stats and infoyote.com/refs). This is also known as our Referral Revenue Sharing Scheme (RS2). Anyone can participate at any Time or Location as guided above.

      Note: We DO NOT Track Names and Contacts of Visitors due to Technology and Legal Constraints and because we respect their Privacy. Kindly note the distinction between our Visitors and Subscribers. New Subscribers have an option to mention you as their Referral during opening a New Account.

      Note: We provide Real-Time Tracking in essence for the purpose of Data Integrity and Transparency so that you can Audit or Test at any Time and Location.


  19. What are BMA Charity Votes?

    The Rights equivalent of 10% Accumulated Sales attributable to Referrers, Authors and Shareholders exercised in Quarterly Special Meetings held to identify and support a List of Needy Cases in Education, Health and Advocacy.

  20. What are the benefits of BMA Public Shares? Why a Public Company?

    1. Technology Companies are usually Capital-Intensive. In our case, we require KES 0.5 Million to service 1,250 Subscribers. This translates to an Acquisition Cost of KES 400.00 per Subscriber i.e. Conversion from Visitor to Subscriber . Thus, in a Jurisdiction and Market like the Republic of Kenya which currently has about 10 Million Internet Users (CCK Statistics), our Capital Outlay shall be to the tune of KES 4 Billion. Going Public helps in distributing this burden across many Shareholders beyond the limit of 50 allowed in Private Companies while giving each Shareholder a Low Entry Point. Technology Companies are usually High-Risk-High-Return Investments. A Public Technology Company spreads this Risk and shares out the Returns accordingly. [ Investor Relations ]

    2. Public Companies necessitate good Corporate Governance to protect Investors. In our case, the requirement to publish Financial Statements periodically shall boost our Brand Transparency and Trust among our Authors, Advertisers and Referrers especially with regard to our Download Royalties (DRs), Cost Per Impression (CPI) and Referral Revenue Sharing Scheme (RS2) models. This is because the numbers in the Financials must Add-Up and Drill-Down in tandem with the DRs, CPI and RS2 numbers. [ FAQ 16, 18 ]

    3. Public Companies provide ease of Transfer, Exit and Liquidation of Shares. Our Shareholders may Sell their Shares at a higher price to new Shareholders whether 1-on-1 or in a Securities Exchange when the Local Subsidiary is Listed. Meanwhile, our Shareholders may use their Shares as Collateral/Security for Short-Term Loans if they need immediate Liquidity.

    4. Distribution of Intellectual Property to the Public for Commercialization is an Exclusive and Guaranteed Right. [ Legal Status ]

    5. All serious Companies who play in the league of the Blue-Chips or the Big Boys are Public Companies. See Also [ Top 100 Global Wealthiest Companies ]

  24. What is Statistics? How is it any of your Business?

    We are concerned with Statistics within the context of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

    AI is a highly-specialized and multi-disciplinary branch of Computer Science which combines Software Engineering, Human Computer Interaction, Robotics, Statistics, Neuroscience, Psychology, Linguistics, and other Disciplines to develop Technologies which mimic or simulate the Human Mind and Behaviour.

    Our AI Engine has Algorithms useful for Angel Investing, Career Mapping and Pathing as well as Social Matching.

  25. What is Angel Capital? How are You involved?

    Angel Capital is Seed Money (a.k.a. Love Money) provided by Angel Investors (a.k.a. Business Angels) to Start-Ups and Early-Stage businesses in exchange for Equity or Convertible Debt.

    Angel Investors fill the gap between Family, Friends and Fools (FFF) and Venture Capitalists (VC) a.k.a Vulture Capitalists. Angel Investors are more interested in the Person or Entrepreneur than the Product or Enterprise as a Critical Success Factor (CSF). They also provide Advice and Contacts.

    AC is typically upto $100K whereas VC is around $1M depending on the Economy e.g. Gross Domestic Product, Per Capita Income and Foreign Exchange (Forex) of a particular Country.

    Our Portal is powered by an AI Engine with Algorithms which take into consideration both Hard and Soft Factors at Macro, Micro and Personal Economic Levels.

    We, therefore, provide an Interface and Intermediary between Entrepreneurs and Investors.
