I am a Kenyan blogger, I have been making money online since 2011.There was a time we were just 10 bloggers in Kenya and the online space was all ours. I used to post one article— about marketable courses in Kenya and it got up to 1 million page views. Nowadays bloggers are many and competition is stiff. We have since moved from the traditional way of posting sensational stories to helping Kenyans make money online. Besides Venas News, I also own several other blogs, including Fixusjobs which advises people on how to make money online.
The websites I am going to list below are those I have used before to make money online. I am a member of more than 200 affiliate programs, a significant percentage of my income comes from affiliate marketing. I also earn from sponsored articles and several other monetization strategies. There was a time I was earning from AdSense but I later dropped it because it was not generating enough—I was earning Ksh250,000 every month by then.
One thing most Kenyans forget is that bloggers are learned people. There was a time someone was dismissing bloggers, saying that they are desperate Kenyans who live from hand to mouth and are dependent on politicians for handouts. The truth of the matter is, some bloggers earn more money than a Kenyan MP. For instance, Ghafla earns over Ksh900,000 every month, Kenyans make over Ksh 1.5 million every month, the owner of this site earns over Ksh1 million every month. All those owning those websites are graduates, some of them with Master’s qualifications. What am I trying to say? That being a blogger is not degrading yourself, it shows that you are ready to cut a niche for yourself as an individual who can do everything humanly possible to earn a living.
If you want to make money online, join the following 10 websites:
AdSense is the one almost every Kenyan blogger is using to make money online from. To get approved by this platform, you have to own a website. A capital of Ksh2,000 to Ksh 20,000 is needed for one to become a blogger. First, register a domain name and buy hosting package. I will refer you to Bluehost which has been serving me since 2011.To register a domain name,click on this link
Make sure that before you apply for AdSense, your content is original and unique, every article has over 500 words, your posts do not include adult content, use your own images, no gambling content and also use a Premium WordPress theme. Premium WordPress themes are obtained from Themeforest,click here to get one
If your site gets more than 1 million page views per month, you’ll make Ksh150,000 and above monthly.
YouTube is also another credible website where you’ll make money from in Kenya.To create a YouTube channel is free and to start making money is free.All you need is an email address which you will use to create a channel. You also have to create regular videos and upload on YouTube. After your channel gets over 1,000 subscribers, at least 4,000 hours of watch time and is 12 months old, apply for AdSense. Once approved, link it to your channel.
For every 1,000 views your channel gets, you’ll earn approximately Ksh100.The more subscribers you have the more money you earn.
Almost half of the blogs in Kenya make money through MGID.In case you have a website and AdSense declines your application, apply for monetization from MGID.To make the application,click on this link
Even Venas News earns money from MGID—I recommend a company I am working with. If you open any post, you’ll notice below it, there are adverts belonging to MGID.By the way, I have earned up to Ksh1.7 million per month from this company before.
