You want to make some dough, right? Of course. Everyone needs to make money.

The internet has transformed the way we do business. It has opened up borders and removed limitations on what you can do and achieve based geographical regions or financial resources. With a computer, an internet connection, and personal drive, there is little that can stand in the way of you making an income online.

From online surveys to renting out your house, there is no shortage of clever ways to make an online income.

Please note it takes patience, persistence, failures, and hard work to build a successful online venture. There are no get-rich-quick schemes. Most quick ways to an online income are shortcuts that do not last or pan out to be scams. You have to put in time, effort, blood, sweat, and tears to be successful.

Let’s dive in and explore the ten modern ways to make money online in Kenya.

1) eCommerce/Dropshipping

eCommerce is the selling and buying of goods and services over the internet. The industry is booming, and the easiest way you can start is via dropshipping. This is a fulfillment method where a store does not keep an inventory of the items it sells but instead purchases it from a third party supplier who ships the item directly to the customer. The store owner does not see or handle the product.

For example, a customer buys from the store and makes a payment of Kshs. 1,999. The store owner then forwards the order details and customer’s address to the supplier and pays the wholesale price of Kshs. 499 and he is left with Kshs. 1,500 as profit. The supplier then ships the item directly to the customer. This model of eCommerce requires less capital to start, and you only need a laptop and connection to the internet. There are many resources, such as eComProo.com and Shopify, that can help you get started.

2) Blogging
