how to make money online in kenya as a freelancer

Updated on August 5, 2011


As i have said many times before there are countless ways of earning money online in kenya. i guess each and every person has a unique skill that he/she can use to make money be it online or offline. Whether you are a website designer, a writer, graphic designer e.t.c you can use those skills and knowledge as an income generating tool.

Today i want us to talk about freelancing and how it can help you make as much money online as you can in kenya by doing simple tasks for clients who need your services but before that let’s define the term "freelancer".

A freelancer is someone who is not tied to a permanent contract job but rather someone who does for a pay different types of jobs depending on availability. In short a freelancer is someone who sells professional expertise without working on a day to day basis for one employer.

freelancing can make you enough money in kenya if you are really interested in it and know what you are supposed to do. in the developed parts of the world people are earning thousands of dollars monthly for doing freelance jobs that are less difficult than normal jobs and gives you the opportunity to work part time or full time from home depending on your schedule. as a freelance newbie in kenya you can aim to make some few hundred dollars a month and when you achieve that and probably learn very well how the game is played is when you can focus on earning more cash.

you don't need to pay money to someone else to get a freelance jobs. there are indeed many free to join freelance websites that give you the opportunity to bid for and do jobs that you feel you are capable of. you simply decide on the freelance job website that you want join and once you make that choice you will find thousands of jobs that you can bid for and do. two of the best websites to start as a freelancer are

1. elance.com

2. freelancer.com

i recommend you register with one of the above two sites for free as they are two most popular freelance sites in the world. once you have registered take some time and familiarise your self with how they work. also post your profile data, experiance and capabilities with them to increase your chances of getting a freelance job. clients who post the job offerings in the freelance website will have to make a choice between the applicants who have applied for the given job to determine who is best equiped to do the job for them. they analyse your profile data to find out if you have the skills and expertise to do the job and if they are satisfied with you, you will be offered the job from among the many bidders.

earning money online from freelance jobs needs hardwork,patience and dedication. don't expect to find a job as soon as you start or don't dream of making huge amounts of money in a short period of time. just take your time, determine the jobs you can do, bid for them and if you win its well and good for you. keep going to bid and do as many jobs as you can and its guaranteed success will finally come.

also remember to do the jobs that are given to you the best way you probably can to earn the trust of the client as that will later increase your chancing of getting jobs.

to your success.
