  The best thing about online business is that you don't have to be a rocket scientist to run the system. Most people have had the phobia of simple systems like generating an individual premium website or a unique blog, and some other vehicles and platforms that will make you money.

          Online Surveys                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           We have simpler systems like joining survey companies that will pay you by simply giving your opinion on some questions they ask. You may wonder where they get their profit from. They are actually contracted by other companies that want to take data on the trending of their products. Survey companies usually pay peanuts and therefore can not sustain you especially for a living, forcing a majority to join multi survey companies in order to raise their figure. Most of this surveys though are not meant for our country, Kenya. If you've got some free time to spend answering some questions outside of your line of duty, it is then good to join some survey firms. By doing this you mainly gain knowledge on many products plus cash to spend. You may search for " Online surveys that pay in Kenya " on your google engine and you'll find several surveys that will pay you.    

       An Affiliate Program                                                                                                                                                                                                                               This is an automated program that brings together a Web advertiser and a Webmaster.

The webmasters, as affiliates, place the company's advertisements on their websites. You therefore must own an individual website in order to work on the affiliate program.  


   You may ask how the company places ads on your website, this is as simple as applying for affiliate program with any company or several companies.

If your website is about beauty products, for example, simply go to search and then type in " beauty product + affiliate program ". You will get thousands, if not more companies waiting to partner with you. 


  Some companies pay high commissions while others pay less, with most paying between 8% and 13%. Items with a high value may attract less percentage in commission, but the value of this commission will definitely ba higher than that of a small value item. It therefore becomes an advantage to affiliate with companies dealing with high value items.

Therefore it is much safer to operate on a website that you own rather than a site that is owned by this platforms. You can purchase domains eg. .com, .net, .org  etc, from this platforms and they may also host you at some fee.
