  • Become a YouTuber

Another alternative way of making money online is through YouTube. There are YouTubers in Kenya making over Ksh1 million per month and they are living good lives.

YouTube pays Ksh40 to Ksh1000 per 1000 views in Kenya. A channel getting 1 million views will pull in over Ksh 150,000.

  • Academic writing

There was a time UK government wanted Kenyans to get barred from doing projects for UK students but they never succeeded. Academic writing is a lucrative industry for Kenyan graduates. Many academic writers have been in the industry for more than 10 years, most of them have never sought for employment elsewhere.

Academic writers in Kenya are paid Ksh 200 to Ksh 2,000 per page. Serious academic writers make not less than Ksh100,000 per month.

  • Affiliate marketing

Bloggers promoting affiliate marketing programs earn decent income. I personally know 5 of them marketing Jumia products, each makes over Ksh50, 000 every month.

Affiliate marketing works well when you own a niche site. But the bad site of it is that you have to sell something through your site in order to earn money.
