If you want to join the affiliate community, here are the best affiliate programs in Kenya;
Jumia Kenya has more than 1000 affiliates who are actively promoting the online shop’s products. The company offers 1%-20% commission on any product purchased through the affiliate’s link. Though sites like Amazon give the best affiliate commissions, they have few customers from Kenya, hence not suitable for Kenyan bloggers.

Betway has a recurring commission of 25%-45%, which means that a blogger will earn for life as long as the players that registered via the link provided continue playing. The negative thing about this affiliate program is that when players win, you earn negative amount, implying that the amount will be subtracted from the income that month. If the negatives are more than the positives, they will be carried forward until they are completely settled.
The positive side is that a blogger will earn forever. You are even allowed to negotiate the commission percentage especially if the number of players you are bringing to the company are many.
1XBET has one of the best affiliate programs in Kenya. I am one of bloggers who have been on the company’s affiliate program, it’s now one year since I joined and so far I have earned over Ksh 700,000. The company gives affiliates up to 45% in commissions.

With 1XBET you can make in excess of Ksh 100,000 every month.However,when your players win alot,you will get more negatives which will affect your earnings.Look at the photo above,that month was our worst because the players won alot of money,we ended up making Ksh 20000 but in a good month we can generate up to Ksh300,000 from 1XBET alone.
22Bet is a relatively new site in Kenya but it’s giving other betting sites a run for their money.22Bet uses the same design as 1XBET, it also gives out commissions equivalent to those of 1XBET.
As a blogger, the best thing to do is, use the three affiliate programs., each will yield something which at the end of the day will help you.
