Affiliate marketing in Kenya is not as popular as native advertisement platforms like AdSense, but the few bloggers in this program are earning decent income.
Majority of bloggers fear to monetize through affiliate programs because they are paid only when they sell products. But when someone knows the best way to attract customers to their blogs, he can make a lot of money within a short time.
For my case, I started making money from affiliate programs in 2015 and in 2017, I completely shifted from AdSense to affiliate marketing. Ever since, my income has been growing progressively. By the year 2020, I was earning over Ksh500,000 per month from the various affiliate programs I was promoting. Sometimes, especially from November to December, I earn in excess of Ksh 1 million per month.
The best way to start earning through affiliate marketing is to identify the best affiliate marketing companies that pay high commissions. I will suggest the ones I have been promoting, they include:

Another good affiliate program is Jumia Kenya which offers commissions of up to 15% per sale. Jumia pays promptly, there’s nothing to worry about.
You can also promote web hosting companies like Kenya Website Experts but they aren’t good enough—most of them don’t pay.
Before you start promoting those affiliate programs, make sure that your site’s content is in line with the programs you are promoting. For instance, if you want to promote betting sites, create a website that offers betting tips and talks about sports. The content should relevantly target gamblers. If you want to promote Jumia products, your site should contain content similar to what Jumia is selling.
To create a niche blog will help you attract relevant readers. You need a capital of Ksh 10,000 to Ksh20,000 to come up with one. You can visit Bluehost and buy a domain name cheaply,click here to visit Bluehost
- How to make a lot of money from affiliate marketing in Kenya
In order to make a lot of money, start by reviewing products of the company you are promoting. Within the paragraphs, insert the affiliate links. Normally, links have higher click through rate than banners.
You should also place banners for the products within the posts and at the header. But don’t place more than 4 banners in your website.
When it comes to affiliate marketing, consistency is important. At first you will be discouraged because you will not make any money but as you fill your site with more content, customers will naturally come. It takes up to 3 years to start earning decent income from affiliate marketing.
