How to make kshs 10000 with your phone in Kenya

Kshs.10000 is a cool amount of money for any Kenyan youth. 

Online earning, especially through one’s smartphone, has become a cool thing that everyone is speaking about on the streets. Is it a fad or is it something that is easily achievable?

Well, we are going to evaluate the probability of this statement using real world examples. 

Let’s get our hands dirty into the mealie of the story

Verdict

Without beating around the bush, let me first state that it is possible to earn a cool kshs. 10000 from your smartphone in Kenya.

Well, now that is out of the way, let us explore how to achieve it.

  1. Affiliate marketing

I have been doing affiliate marketing since 2018 and so I know the ins and outs of the game. I have earned over kshs.1000000 in one month and less than 10,000 in another. I have seen Google core updates and moments when my traffic was so high that I was surprised.

I have seen my site live and at other times wiped out by server downtimes.

I have seen it all.

In a nutshell, affiliate marketing is a model where you earn commissions from merchants when you refer successful sales to their businesses. I have been doing affiliate marketing for Amazon as well as shareasale.

While the model is easy to understand, implementation is where the rubber meets the road. You have to understand niches, keyword research, on page optimization and backlinking. While that seems hard and insurmountable, it really aint that hard. Well the learning slope is steep but when you are really determined, you should be able to hack it within the first 6 months.

  1. Earning from online ads

I have also been earning from Google adsense, Ezoic and monumetric. While setting up ads is easy, the earnings are something to smile about. I refer to earning from online ads as the real earning in your sleep.

Why? 

Because I do not have to do anything once I set up the ads. The money just streams in.

There are moments when I will share my blog links on email or Facebook and just let them be for a day. And then, I will be surprised to find a cool $5 has entered into my bank account without me doing anything extra.

It is really miraculous and a good one at that.

  1. Doing sponsored posts on your blog

At the moment, I am working as an SEO consultant for Cooperative bank, Mivida homes and Boya fintech app. I have seen the Cooperative bank pay handsome monies to Ghafla, Kenyans.co.ke and Businesswatch in exchange for sponsored articles about the financial institution.

You too can do this. All you need is an authoritative and well known blog that has a good readership to attract corporates who are looking for backlink opportunities.

Once you have this, be sure that you will earn from your blog.

  1. Selling backlink services

When I was starting out on online marketing, I learnt that there were people looking for backlinks to enhance their off-page seo. They were willing to pay upto $33 for every backlink that I created for them on swahili wikipedia.

I set up a service on blackhatworld, this website, facebook and Legiit. The service sold like a hot cake. I was smiling all the way to the bank.

After doing 3 backlinks everyday, I was assured of a cool kshs.10000 hitting my Mpesa account. It was really cool until I was reported to the moderators at Swahili wikipedia and so had to bring my operations to a halt.

  1. Selling content marketing services

There are many Kenyans who today work on upwork and freelancer offering their content marketing services. Personally, I have worked on iwriter where I would earn a good amount of money per week.

For this, all you need is article writing skills and you are good to go. Yes, you might still need to bid for your services but that is not the bulk of the work.

  1. Academic writing

There are many young Kenyan graduates who have been making their daily bread by selling their writing services on academic sites such as uvocorp, essaywriters and writerslab. All you need to have is good writing skills, time-management and skills in APA, turabian and MLA referencing styles.

  1. Offering web design services

Are you adept in WordPress, Joomla, HTML, CSS and Javascript? Well you could offer front end web development services and earn a cool 10,000 kshs or even more.

How?

There are so many wannabe webmasters who are looking for skilled people to help them start their own websites. Here is where you come in.

All you need to do is set up a portfolio website where you tell them that you can set up their required websites, negotiate over your pricing and start working on those websites.,

Sounds easy, right?

It is but the bulk of the work comes in marketing yourself as a web developer.

Fortunately with online promotions and word of mouth referrals, things need not be so hard.
