Ways You Can Earn Money Online in Kenya – Kenya, the 582,646-square-kilometer East African country, is the 48th largest nation worldwide and the third-largest economy in sub-Saharan Africa.
It’s one of the top 20 African countries with the highest internet penetration.
With so many internet solutions at every Kenyan’s disposal, including high-speed Wi-Fi solutions, affordable mobile data plans, and reliable internet providers, it’s only normal to want to know ways to earn online.
Hundreds of tried-and-true earning opportunities are available to Kenyans of all education levels. Jobs related to translation, transcription, academic/SEO writing, and tutoring require knowledge and skill.
However, taking surveys, data entry, sharing the internet for money, and other micro-tasks don’t need high academic qualifications. With dedication and time, you can earn enough to sustain your lifestyle with the following income-generating opportunities.
As an increasing number of physical stores move online, more websites and blogs are born.
Every hour, the web records thousands of new social media pages, service/product-selling websites, and advertising blogs.
All these need fresh and valuable content to trigger positive search engine rankings and boost conversions.
Not all business owners have the time to write content for their websites, hence the increase in freelance writer job postings. Professional freelance writers can earn $1,000 per 1,000-word article, but they did not start out that way.
Don’t be dismayed if nobody wants to hire you at first. Keep honing your skills and improving your profile. You can find paid freelance jobs on top-rated content mills and online marketplaces.
Dozens of micro-task websites offer Kenyans an opportunity to earn by completing simple and fun tasks.
Common micro-tasks include but are not limited to watching videos/ads, sharing bandwidth, entering data in spreadsheets, performing Google searches, snapping photos of products at a store, and completing paid surveys in Kenya.
Time and resource-wise, these micro-tasks aren’t demanding.
Most assignments take an hour maximum, with the short ones taking minutes to complete. Not all websites accept Kenyan online workers, so do prior research.
