Kusema ukweli, money will never be enough. The more you get, the more you have to do with it. Even if you’re employed and earning well, it never hurts to make more money right? The Internet has made it easier than ever to make some extra cash from wherever you are. If you’re in Nairobi, here are some ways that you can make more money online for those unexpected extra expenses.
Do you have a blog or a YouTube channel? If you have a size-able following, you can make more money online by letting companies run ads on your platform. You can also do affiliate marketing, and earn a commission when someone buys a product from your site. In addition, you can monetize your YouTube channel and get paid when people watch your videos.
Social media is great for sharing your thoughts and opinions to your followers, and influencer marketing gets you paid for it. Most people will buy something because someone they know has recommended it, so use that to your advantage to make more money online. If you have a large social media following, companies and brands will probably pay you to talk about them and get your followers to buy their products.
If you have a spare room or two, why not rent it out on AirBnB? Travelers are always looking for cheaper options than hotels, and you’ll be making some extra cash. In addition, these are usually short term arrangements that are not likely to inconvenience you in any way. You can also rent out office space if you have it, or be the middleman that makes that happen between the owner and the client.
People all over the world are always looking for knowledge about anything. What’s your specialty, that one thing you know most about? Why don’t you write an eBook and share that knowledge with the world? It doesn’t have to be long, or take up too much of your time, but it will definitely bring in some more money for you.
The beauty of working online is that you can work anywhere for anyone all over the world. As long as you have a stable Internet connection, it’s very easy to make more money online. Some of the freelancing opportunities you can try include writing, translation, digital marketing and graphic design. Just find the best fit for you and you’ll be set.
