Online Business To Earn In Kenya


freelancing Work


This is when you perform some skillful task for people in need of your service and you get paid for every complete task e.g writing articles for people, Designing Logos, Building websites, Setting Seo, Analytics work, and many other creative Works which you think you can do but people don't know how to do it and they are in need of it.

There are many websites in Kenya which will need people to write for them but the question is how will you know the people in need of you service like writing? since that question becomes a problem to answer directly because there is no specific place to get people who need your writing services in Kenya You can easily create your Works on freelancing Websites perhaps not only People from Kenya might need your services. or you can create a website to offer your writing services in Kenya e.g you can name it like thewriter.co.ke,Wewrite.com,articles.co.ke or whatever and on the website you can write some confusing headlines that can convince your readers you are a good writer after which you will be offered writing jobs from them.

As Time goes on You will begin to get more customers if only you can do a good job and you will also get long term customers who will consistently be in need of your services.

You can go ahead to Optimise your website to make it search engine friendly with this you will get customers from the search engines who are looking for writers online. if you are the type that is creative in many other ways such as logo designs, web design, Seo , analytics works , you can add other pages on your websites to create awareness that you also do other works which you will specify on those pages.

Online stores is a place where you can display either your own products or other people products for sales and get commission for every successful sales e.g konga and jumia are the most popular websites that offers such services and other Kenya based online stores are KillMall|Rupu|Dakikaonline and many others that exist in Kenya .

You can create such websites in Kenya with just few steps Here if you have a bit knowledge of WordPress installation but if not you can hire a web designer to help you complete the task while you pay some fee.

Online stores don't means you must sell you own products. you can affiliate any of the websites in Kenya that you trust most among the online stores Sell their products on your store and get the commission applied . When you website grows you can also give spaces for people to display their products for sale on your store while they pay.

E-Books selling .


This is one method through which you can package any work you can do better in a digital form and sell it to the audience in this case you may not need a website but it will be more easier if you have a website of your own

What you know how to do will depend on what you will sell e.g how to reduce breast size, how to make Bathing soap, etc just on How to Do anything you think can sell packed them in digital format (e-books) people will always buy depending on your marketing strategies.

Social Media


The Facebook , twitter , instagram you use everyday for fun people still use them in making money. Taking Facebook as a case study , it is an a very popular social network where you can meet your targeted audience. You can make money from Facebook by selling advertising spaces via your Facebook pages and groups

All you have to do is create your own pages , or groups drive more traffic to your groups and pages using any strategy you can , after which you have gotten thousands of likes (tempting in number) you can now allow people to post on your group at a fixed price.

I'have come across many Facebook groups and pages offering same services at a very cheap and affordable price and people pay to advertise their products on the pages and groups since they know they will get more traffic with the huge numbers of group and page users.

If you ask me how you can get likes and add more people to your group, I will say I don't know any magical way than what you already knew.

Online Coaching


if you think creating a website will be too difficult for you to too stressful because you like talking like me you can simply go by creating a YouTube channel to do your coaching on whatever you are specialised on.

You can Monetise Your YouTube channel with Google AdSense. Note it is not only coaching that you can do online , if you are the funny type you can shoot some short funny videos and upload them online just to drive traffic to your YouTube channel and if you really mean business you can place ads on other people's websites to tell them you have a lesson on so so and so or tell them about your new funny videos this Is just to create awareness and let people know about your channel knowing that you don't have a website.

You can also Share your channel on Facebook and other social medias
