There is nothing as thrilling as staying at home with your kids, eating homemade foods, socializing with friends in the neighborhood, going back to sleep when you want while still getting to earn good money working from home.
To some of us, that’s the norm. That’s the life we live. And we wouldn’t trade it for any other in the universe.
Imagine having the freedom to work for only two hours daily and spend the rest of the day watching movies or learning other skills, would you jump on the gig?
If that does not sell it well, then imagine this; earning Ksh. 1M plus working from home. Wouldn’t you want to begin working now?
Such is the reality of working from home.
You get to work for lesser hours, have the freedom to choose when to work while still tending to the people you love.

How to Make Money at Home in Kenya in 2021.
Start a Blog
Blogging refers to writing, photography, and other media that’s self-published online. Or if you like, it is a small personal/business website that is updated regularly with information.
In Kenya, there are thousands of notable blogs, mine included.
And while it is not easy to say what other bloggers earn in Kenya, I can confidently tell you that blogging pays.
How much can you earn in a month as a blogger in Kenya?
It depends. Personally, I have been able to earn as much as Ksh. 1.4 million in a month and as little as Ksh. 300K in a good day.
If that’s no proof that blogging is an easy way to make money at home in Kenya in 2021, then I don’t know what is.
How to make money with your blog in Kenya in 2021.
- Post sponsored posts
- Ask to be paid for guest posts
- Add Adsense on your webpages
- Promote affiliate products
- Endorse brands
- Sell advertising spaces
- Sell digital products on your platform
- Write for other bloggers for pay
2. Write and sell eBooks.
If writing blog posts seems too much of a task, then consider writing and selling eBooks.
Which niche are you good at?
Whichever thing you are good at doing, consider writing an eBook for it.
You can self-publish as many books as you possibly can on Amazon Kindle and when people buy, you get paid a percentage of the sales.
How does that sound?
The best thing, you don’t have to leave the house to write eBooks. And, you don’t have to leave the house either to go search for clients.
You will do everything online and receive your payment online.
3. Become a social media marketer.
Another easy way to make money from home in Kenya is through social media marketing.
If you can create engaging content that people love and create a conversation around then you are good for social media marketing.
Apart from promoting a company on social media, you can also help them with paid advertising, social media content scheduling, planning, implementing, managing, and monitoring social media events and related jobs.
4. Online teaching or coaching.
If there is a skill that you have learnt, mastered and feel confident at sharing; then you can make money from home teaching or coaching about that skill.
Is it social media marketing, is it school-related, nutrition, making money, Forex… you name it.
You can make money from home by offering tuition or coaching around that skill.
5. Rent an extra room in your house
If you have a big house that’s almost always vacant, why don’t you list those extra rooms on Airbnb?
You can make money from home by offering your visitors a customized experience of your community.
Show your visitors all the amazing places around your neighbourhood and make money doing nothing out of the ordinary.
6. Work and earn on social media.
If you have a huge following on your social media accounts, you can make money from home by posting sponsored content.
Or, you can use your influence to sell affiliate products and earn a commission for recommending products.
But by far the most common and the most profitable way to earn with social media from home is to sell your own products.
Do you think you can do these three things?
Then chances are, you can make a lot of money working from home in 2021.
7. Take and sell photos online
Are you photogenic?
When you take decent photos and share them online do you always get thousands of likes and positive feedback?
If you answered yes to all those questions then why not sell your photos to bloggers and website owners on photo stock sites.
Unrealistic as it sounds, you can make a living selling photo online and it isn’t even that difficult taking photos and uploading on photo stock sites.
8. Make Youtube Videos.
Whichever ideas you have boiling in your head, you can use them to make money in 2021.
Just share those ideas on youtube and if there are like-minded individuals who resonate with your content and feel you are worth following, they will subscribe to your channel.
And as soon as your channel hits 1,000 subscribers, you can join the youtube partners program to begin making money from home in 2021.
Depending on how good your videos are, how consistent you are, and the topics you discuss on your channel, you will get lots of subscribers so fast.
Other than joining the youtube partners program to earn from home, you can also make money on youtube by: –
- Asking for donations
- Sell products and merchandise
- License your content to media platforms
- Work with brands as an influencer or an affiliate
9. Make TikTok Videos.
Yes, you can also make money on TikTok. And it’s easy.
Once you have enough followers on the platform (1000 followers) consider going live and asking for donations. If that does not work, then start growing TikTok accounts and selling.
Other than those two methods, you can also make money on TikTok by advertising on the Tiktok ads platform or by starting a TikTok consultancy business.
The best part, you can do all these things from home and earn from home.
10. Get paid to search and surf the web.
Unlike the other methods we have mentioned in this post, guaranteeing profits you can live on; this hustle may not earn you much.
But at least, it can earn you enough money to buy coffee and/or even a doughnut for accompaniment.
And, that’s not to say that if you work twice as hard or thrice as smart you won’t make good money surfing the web, you will. But after so long.
