Online jobs are the future of employment for young people and future generations. The internet has really opened up the world and reduced it to a global village.
Today more than ever, communication across the world is far more effective and fast thanks to high-speed internet.
There are millions of people across the world that have leveraged the potential of the internet and have built empires entirely on the internet.
One perfect example is Amazon which has been vetted as the world’s number one most publicly traded company making it the biggest company in the world today.
Imagine a company whose net worth is slightly more than the GDP of Switzerland! Amazon had a humble beginning as Jeff Bezos started off in his parent’s garage.
Today he is the world’s richest man because of an idea he implemented on the internet.
My Journey with online jobs
Even if your goals are not to be like Jeff Bezos, you could do several other things on the internet that could make you rich if you do them right.
Having tried my hand on various online jobs, I like to highlight it on a high wall each time I talk about this topic that I have never looked for a white-collar job.
All my income streams are from the internet and so I can teach you a thing or two.
Information can change your life or give you an idea that you will earn from the rest of your life.
In Kenya like in any part of the world, you are not limited to a certain option. You have equal opportunities on the internet with people from other continents.
As a matter of fact, Kenya is one of the few African countries that enjoy fast internet speeds.
You, therefore, do not have any excuse as to why you should not be leveraging the opportunities provided by the internet.
Here are some of the highest paying jobs on the internet that you can start today in Kenya.
Online jobs you can do in Kenya
These are some of the best online jobs that you could do in Kenya today:
- Academic Writing
- Online networking jobs
- selling E-books
- Data Entry and copywriting
Blogging as a career
One of the best choices you can make when choosing an online job is blogging. Blogging is one of the best online jobs you could ever do.
Blogging is top on my list because it is the most scalable opportunity and undoubtedly one that can earn you into the millions.
I have also put it as “blogging as a career” because there are people who blog for fun without following the rules of monetizing a blog.
Blogging is a very wide topic and it entails a lot to be a successful blogger. It is an area that requires thorough research before hopping in.
The good thing is, I have prepared a course for you with all the important things to consider before starting a blog.
I have highlighted the most profitable niches, among other best practices that will help you grow your blog in under 6 months and start earning a full-time income.

I remember when I joined campus; this was my main source of income. Through Academic writing, I was able to pay my rent outside campus, do my upkeep and so much more.
Back then, the industry was doing really fine and jobs were in abundance.
Today I am not sure about the same industry and how it has been holding up since I left close to two years now.
Just like the name suggests academic writing entails writing academic documents. You are given a question that you should research on and write. You will be guided by the instructions given to you on how to write.
If you are a good writer, you can manage over 10 pages a day. With the basic pay being 250 shillings per page, you can make in excess of 2500/= every day from academic writing.
A word of caution, you have to provide quality work to win the trust of your employer.
You also have to know how to format your papers using various styles like APA, MLA, and Harvard among others.
If you are interested in academic writing, I will be glad to coach you to be a pro writer and connect you to clients and employers for a very affordable fee. All you have to do is leave a comment.
Requirements and qualities of a good academic writer
- You should have access to a laptop or a desktop computer
- You should have a reliable internet connection or use bundles
- As a writer, you should take responsibility for your revisions
- Your phone should be ON 24/7
Online networking jobs
There are several networking jobs that you can do on the internet but I will highlight just one. This is because I like to share the things that I have personally reviewed and approved.
Networking gigs are a wonderful way of making partial or fulltime income in Kenya. Most of them operate on a referral basis where you earn commissions for referring other people.
The only networking program that I trust in Kenya today is called Boldcashers
With boldcashers.com, you earn a commission of 1150/= for every person that you refer to them. I have done you the honors of giving you a free strategy in this article that will earn you Ksh. 1 million in less than 5 months.
This way, the more people you refer, the more you generate money. I believe your circle of friends is enough to make you earn a tidy income. Use this sponsor ID if you are prompted: 200060454
You can read more about Boldcashers in this article where I reviewed Boldcashers.com to find out if they are legit.
You will find other bits of important information in this article about everything you need to know about bold cashers.
This may be an idea that has been around for quite some time but nevertheless, people are still reaping big from selling e-books.
e-book stands for an electronic book which in other words means a book that is downloadable or one that can be read using an electronic means.
E-books have been around for quite some time. People keep writing niche books that provide solutions to some of the everyday problems that people face.
The good thing is that you do not have to be a good writer to write an e-book. You can pay someone or hire the services of a writer from Fiverr.
After writing your e-book, you can sell it on Amazon Kindle and if you have your own website, you could also sell the e-books on your own website.
Data entry and copywriting
These are some of the easiest jobs that you can do from home. They entail typing what you see on your screen.
Usually, your employer sends you a document in picture form and you have to write down the content on the picture on notepad or MS word.
It is a simple job that anyone could do if they had a computer. Caution! You should ensure that your employer is not a scam to avoid wasting your time and losing all the money you had worked for.
This is another opportunity that could earn you good money if you gave it sufficient time. Transcribing entails listening to audios and writing down what you have heard in words.
This job may sound easy but it requires a lot of attention, time, listening skills, fast typing skills, and a quiet environment. However, if you give it all the attention, you can make good money from this career.
These are some of the best online jobs and opportunities that you can take advantage of in Kenya.
There is nothing stopping you from starting today since they are ready opportunities waiting for you.
Make this year a different year and find something to do on the internet. If there is any way I can help, feel free to ask any question and I will answer you. Cheers!
