How to become a Yahoo boy:
Yahoo Yahoo is a form of business and, just like every other business, you need to invest certain money to buy the gadgets you need to get started.
And, when I say gadgets, I don’t mean an incomplete set; you need virtually all the gadgets I’ll be mentioning in a few lines.
What are these gadgets?
1. Get a good Laptop
First, you need to own a laptop if you want to become a successful Yahoo guy. Otherwise, you’ll find it extremely difficult to do certain important things one is only capable of doing on Laptops.
Olamide Bado is or was able to pull off his own Yahoo boy without a laptop. nevertheless, I can assure you that you very much need a laptop to become a very successful yahoo boy.
And not just any laptop. You need one with good firmware. And I can’t recommend any other than Apple laptops.
I love the Windows OS and how they’ve improved on the latest versions. However, one must still admit that the Mac is by far the most protected.
Furthermore, Apple laptops tend to have longer battery lives, which will come in handy considering the fact that the Nigerian power supply is still very much in jumbles.
2. Get a good Smartphone
Even after getting a laptop, you still need a mobile phone. The reason is, you don’t need to waste any minute. You need to respond to clients’ messages fast.
And what if you’re somewhere, maybe in a park or cinema relaxing?
This is why you need a mobile phone.
Again, I recommend an iPhone or iPad. They have better firmware than any other device you can think of.
The reason you need devices with good firmware is so that you won’t get tracked, hacked or cracked by anyone interested in your downfall.
You wouldn’t want a short-lived success, would you?
3. Get Steady internet connection
A good internet connection is one of the most essential requirements for becoming a Yahoo boy. If you stay in a location that is not 3G+ enabled, then you’ve got to reconsider your decision.
You don’t want to be in the middle of an important conversation with a client and then all of a sudden your network begins to disappoint.
It’s a huge turn off for clients. Personally, I wouldn’t appreciate chatting with someone who replies to my messages with more than 10 minutes time lag, especially when I have to deal with that for every message I send.
You need a good network, more so if you claim to live in the city. A person that stays in the city cannot keep complaining of a poor network. Bad network is totally un-city-like.
Although you may be able to beat your way around that, you wouldn’t want to give your clients so many clues.
The reason I’ve insisted on you getting those three aforementioned gadgets is that you must never use a cyber café. If you do, you are on your road to failure.
Ask the people that have been there. Cyber cafés are unsafe places. A second computer might be able to see what you’re doing, might be able to check your browsing history, and might end up tipping off anyone interested in seeing you fail.
If you don’t have those three very important gadgets listed above, then don’t even think of becoming a yahoo guy.
You will only end up having just yourself to blame.
4. Get a VPN
A virtual private network (VPN) enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. In other words, VPN encrypts your network, thereby increasing the security of the data you transmit over the net.
Or, in Lehman’s terms, VPN hides your IP address or switch to the one you desire.
There are free VPNs on the net; however, they limit so many functionalities with their free plans.
Henceforth, you might be required to purchase one of the premium plans in order to enjoy the full package.
5. Learn English
If you already have the ability to communicate and write effectively in English, good for you. But if not, then you have to improve before you even think of starting Yahoo! Yahoo!
Your ability to communicate and write effectively isn’t a gadget and it isn’t something you can purchase and own overnight. It’s something you have to develop.
Needless to say, the ability to write and communicate effectively is one of the most essential requirements for becoming a Yahoo boy.
How in the world will you win over clients if you can’t construct simple grammar?
Let’s assume my writing has been extremely poor since you started reading this article. Would you have carried on with it?
Similarly, anyone who really wants to become a Yahoo boy must have the ability to keep people engaged in conversations.
I get turned off by women with poor grammatical constructions. And I’m certain I’m not the only one with that mentality.
Statistics have it that men find women who can communicate effectively more attractive. Similarly, women are attracted to men who have good communication skills.
I’m certain you want to present yourself attractive to your clients in every sense.
If you’re not so good in English, have no fear. make use of the resources on the internet that helps with grammar construction.
Grammarly is one of them.
6. Get a foreign phone number
Yahoo boys usually claim to be from the US, UK or any other developed countries. Because people tend to hold citizens of those countries with high regard.
Now, if you choose to be someone from the USA, you must take note that every country has an Area Code.
In essence, you can’t tell me you’re from the USA and when you call me, I’ll notice +234, which is obviously the Nigerian Area Code.
It’s easy to get a foreign phone number using several android apps. One very popular app for getting a foreign phone number is TextPlus. Just search for that on Google PlayStore.
Those are the six most important things you need to start a Yahoo boy career. Other petty requirements include knowing where the ABCs are on the keyboard and having a good sense of humor.
Without further ado, let’s get to the main reason you clicked to read this post.
The yahoo boys formats: how they operate
1. Yahoo boy websites
Many people interested in becoming Yahoo boys believe there’s a specific yahoo boy website where they can practice their activities.
That is, however, completely incorrect.
Let’s go back to basics.
Why do you think the business is named after one of the most popular websites in the world (yahoo.com)?
That’s because it traces as far back as when yahoo messenger was still the most popular chat app on the internet.
It was through the Yahoo Messenger app people were able to connect and communicate with foreigners with ease, inasmuch as you have the Yahoo Mail address of that person.
But in this generation a lot has changed; things are no longer the way they used to be.
There are several websites that provide you with a means to practice and, funny enough, they are closer than you imagine.
What are those websites?
- Dating apps or sites, etc.
In short, yahoo boys operate on practically any site that provides them with a means to communicate with people without really seeing them or knowing them physically.
Mastering the usage of online dating sites or apps is basically the most popular yahoo boy format on the internet; it is the oldest trick in the book.
How do they operate on those yahoo boys’ websites?
Create a profile
Creating a profile on most of the platforms listed above is easy; however, some of them have blacklisted Nigerians due to the bad reputation that precedes our youths.
On some dating sites especially, it is not possible to create a profile as a Nigerian.
This is where the VPN comes in.
A VPN hides your location and makes it seem like you’re browsing from any locations of your choice, hence allowing you to access websites that on normal grounds do not allow Nigerians to register.
Discover your mojo
Many aspiring Yahoo boys miss it here and, as a consequence, never do well in their business.
Basically, successful yahoo boys are very good creating fake identities and profile, through which they’ll be able to catch easy preys.
Some, however, choose a status that they are incapable of feigning. Imagine a person who claims to be a doctor but is ignorant of simple terms in medicine, or who says he/she is a soldier but has zero ideas on certain military terminologies.
In the event that their clients want to engage them in conversations related to their works, they’ll find it hard to cope with.
If you meet someone that’s not so smart, then fine. But in the world we’re living in now, people are a lot smarter than they used to be. So, childish tricks might not work.
You know what you are good at and can feign convincingly; it is not someone that will put you throughHits : 30
