Making money online in South Africa

Updated on November 14, 2010

Making money online in South Africa may seem like an impossible and daunting task to you, but in actual reality it is quite simple.

I say simple, because I have doing it for a little over two years now and cash a cheque every month which pays for my annual holiday and towards my hobby.

I dont battle anymore after finally figuring out how to make an extra income online form South Africa.

I will share with you in the simplest of terms possible to give you an idea of how you can go about doing the same. It does take time and patience, so do not expect to earn thousand of rands in the first week and start pulling a six figure income straight off the bat, because it is impossible and absolute bolloacks. I dont care what you have read about it.

You want to make money online in South Africa, there is only two possible ways you can do it. Trust me I have bought umpteen products and wasted a lot of money during the research process in ordert to get where I am today.

So Im not going to try and sell you anything or convince you to sigh up for some newsletter or email list.

Just the plain simple facts.

The reality: If you want a quick solution to millions, then off you go and see you later.

Right. The only two ways to make money online, as a South African, are to write online and to sell online. That simple.

So how do you do this?

Writing online is by far the easiest way to make money online in South Africa. That is how I do it and have been for a little over two years now. Most online writing is carried out by freelance writers much like you and I who simply sit at home and write. The difference is that they do not all write for news publications and magazines, they write ismple informative interest pieces that people like you and me read.

The money is paid to you by sites that are called revenue sharing sites. They get paid by the advertisers who use their sites and the site passes on a share of the revenue to you. Thats how simple it is. So it makes sense that the more you write, the more you get paid. EXACTLY THAT.

The joyful part is that whatever topic you decide to write on, there is always a readerbase. So write on your hobbies, your expertise, your stories and experiences.

Whatever you write on it will never disappear form the internet and there will be new readers everyday and new advertisers. You can slowly build a snowball of passive income and decide by yourself when enough is enough.

You may decide to write on the topics that are needed by website and become a ghost writer and bid or sell your articles, but I like revenue sharing sites, because I choose my own hours to work.

The only other option avaiable to South Africans is to sell products online. This is called affiliate marketing and is very popular with most online writers in South Africa, some of who do this full time becuase there are always new products entering the market. You usually get paid on a commission basis and it can be difficult to graps at first as you come across new terms like SEO and affiliate programs etc, but it can be done.

Well I hope you enjoyed my no nonsense approach and have as much luck as I have had making money online in South Africa.
