Everyone wants to start their own business. Its the way to become independent. These are some online businesses that you can start right away in Kenya in order to make money online.
Online business in Kenya is relatively new and it is quite an exciting topic for me to cover for you.
I cover the following online business ideas:
1. Start a Blog. A blog is basically an online article that you write on a particular topic. In order to start making money using your blog, you need to place affiliate links.
An affiliate link is defined as a specific URL that contains an affiliate username or affiliate ID. It directs someone to a merchant site, where they will purchase a commodity or perform a given action.
The affiliate (who sent the buyer to the merchant site) gets a commission. On the other hand, you can monetize your blog using AdSense. This means that you open up your blog posts and pages to have adverts.
Companies pay Google for a chance to feature their adverts on your page. A portion of the ad expenditure is retained by Google, and they also pay you for either the number of times an advert was seen or for the number of times the advert was clicked by your viewers.
Every website must have a website hosting site. The price per year for hosting depends on the size of your site. Good hosting sites include:

2. Freelance Business. A freelancer is a person who trades their work or services, per day, or hour, or per project rather than for one employer, for a weekly or monthly pay. Typically, freelancers do one project for someone, and then bid for another job and complete that as well, and the cycle continues.
Freelancing means that you work for different clients depending on your expertise. You can be a writer, video game designer, graphic artiste, copywriter, etc. Good sites that you can great work include: Up work https://www.upwork.com/ab/find-work/ and Fiverr
4. Sale of items online. You can get items at a good price at an offline shop, then advertise on your Facebook profile or page. All you need to do is to take a decent image of the items and place a good price that will at least give you some good profit. This is a repetitive process, until you can be able to afford to import items from outside the country using sites such as AliExpress.
