Are you one of those guys asking “Is there anyone who is actually earning money online in Kenya?”  Is making money online all just a bunch of hype? Making money online is probably one of the most popular topics right now in Kenya and around the world. Does it really work? Well, I’m here to tell you yes! And many are doing so.

We are living in hard economic times in Kenya. And people are looking for an opportunity to earn that extra shilling. Are there secrets to making money online? Well, the principles are the same as working offline. Hard work, persistence and a determined spirit are qualities that are needed. Nevertheless, there are numerous adverts of making “quick and easy money in only a month’ all over the net. Please stay away from such. They are usually scams out to get your money. 


Can I Get Work Online In Kenya And Make Money?


The answer to that question is yes, you can. Is it easy? No. I am discovering day by day that I do need to work hard….and smart. And there is so much information and things I have to learn to succeed.

One of the biggest myths about making money online is that you don’t have to work hard. Don’t be fooled. Many Kenyans who are working online are succeeding by working hard and making sure that they keep on learning. Hard work is necessary. Be prepared to invest time, money and effort to begin working online. It is well worth your effort by the way. The potential, as far as I’m concerned is huge and there’s a chance to make a good deal of money online.


How Do I Make Money Online?


Now that we have settled on the matter of working hard, let’s get to the juicy part. You want to know, how do I make the money? Or how are other Kenyans making money online? Some of the ways in which people are making money online is by freelancing, which means they sell their services to clients. These services may be web design, writing or transcription. We also have right here in Kenya, affiliate marketers. Affiliate marketing simply means that you are rewarded by a business for promoting their products or services. Others are selling products via sites such as E-bay. 


Be Consistent and Patient


If there is one thing I am learning everyday is the need to be consistent and patient. Rome was not built in a day and overnight riches will not come about even online. I am discovering that as I commit my time and effort to work online I am getting rewards for it. The future is so bright and it can be for you too if you are interested in working online.

If you are already paying money to your internet provider to chat with your friends, to read or play games etcetera why not pay your internet service provider to make some money working online?

Working online from the comfort of your own home is still relatively new in Kenya. The potential is huge. Why not try it for yourself? I have and I am so excited at the future prospects.

Will you be a spectator or will you be a participator? 

Thanks for reading my post!
