#3- Affiliate Marketing
This is a business model where you promote the products or services of another entrepreneur to your audience or followers by sharing your affiliate link.
That affiliate link is usually tracked such that everybody who purchases the product or service through your referral link, shall earn a commission.
Personally, I promote several affiliate products like;
- Proofread Anywhere
- Amazon through their famous Amazon associates’ program
Apart from being an affiliate, Amazon offers too many make money opportunities;
Influencer: Build and sell through your Amazon Storefront using the Amazon influencer program.
Selling: For instance, write books and sell them on Amazon Kindle.
Micro Jobs: Make money with the short task on Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk)
Proofreading: Get hired to write, edit and proofread for Amazon blog, product listings and Kindle books.
#4- CPA Marketing
CPA is the short form for Cost Per Action or Acquisition.
This is a type of marketing where you get paid after a conversation in the form of an action performed instead of a sale made.
Examples of actions you get paid for include clicking or viewing ads, filling sign-up forms, submitting emails, and more.
You can do CPA marketing through a network or directly with a specific company.
Below are some of the direct merchants I work with also;
You can sell two types of products online – digital and physical.
Digital products cannot be touched and they are delivered in electronic formats like SVG, png, or pdf. Examples are things like printables, music, books, and software among others.
On the other hand, physical products can be touched and they must be physically delivered to the customer. Examples include t-shirts, earrings, home décor art, and more.
There are so many platforms to sell these products both locally and internationally.
Locally you can sell on Jumia, Kilimall, Jiji, Muthurwa, and more.
#6- Forex Trading
There are many legit forex brokers in Kenya who will help you to make money with currencies.
In this business model, your job is to speculate the rise or fall of currencies with the goal of making a profit in case of a rise.
Therefore, currencies are traded in pairs, and the value the traders get is the difference in the rise or fall of one currency against the other.
There are several ways you can make money online as a researcher in Kenya such as;
A survey is a data collection tool used by product or business owners to understand the needs of their customers or buyers better.
Entrepreneurs who cannot host their own survey campaigns will often work with a legit paid survey site, which will run and manage the campaigns on their behalf.
There is a job known as homework tutoring where you get paid by students to help them with assignments and other term papers.
#9 – Freelancing
Freelancing is for self-employed persons who work on a short-term or contract basis.
#10 – Apps That Pay
Kenyans are always looking for ways to make money from their mobile phones.
App developers have created all sorts of apps that pay to help people to make extra money or passive income online.
My number two app is State Earn where I make money in several ways, such as promoting my affiliate link, watching videos, and answering trivia questions.
The number three app is Starclicks where I make money by sharing my affiliate link and clicking on ads.

Alternatively, you can build an audience on social media, then market these apps to your audience.
