Become an Affiliate and Earn Extra Money in Kenya

Home / News / Become an Affiliate and Earn Extra Money in Kenya

2022 has been one of the toughest years yet for many Kenyans. As the year comes to a close, one cannot help but wonder what future lies ahead for Kenyans. From severe drought in various parts of the country to increased taxes and insecurity, Kenyans are having it rough. It would be unfair to view this as a Kenyan problem as there have been cases of severe weather globally and an economic recession. In fact, Global growth is forecast to slow from 6.0 percent in 2021 to 3.2 percent in 2022 and 2.7 percent in 2023. Moreover, more than 17% of Kenya's population was recorded to live below the poverty line as of 2022. While these figures herald a grim future for many, many industries seem to grow during this economic recession. These industries included freight and logistics, healthcare, alcohol and liquor, utilities, discount and retailers, and the technology industry.

Now while these sectors have proven to be highly successful despite the recession, not all people are lucky enough to be in those industries. Also, economic security does not necessarily protect a person from the wrath of mother nature. However, having a secure income can help a person recover from the indirect implications of natural disasters as they can pick up the pieces. Moreover, with the economic sector becoming more volatile and the cost of living rising steadily, it is more urgent than ever for people to find ways to increase their earnings. As stated earlier, some sectors continue to profit despite the changing circumstances. However, starting a new business can be daunting, and the aforementioned sectors require substantial capital to start.

What if it was possible to earn additional money without any need to invest upfront? Such an avenue would help many people overcome the multitude of problems they are currently facing due to the recession.

There is a way to tap into these highly productive avenues without necessarily investing the large amounts of capital required to get started. This is through affiliate marketing. When someone registers as an affiliate, they essentially make money by recommending others to the goods or services of a specific company in exchange for a commission. As a result, affiliates promote these products or services to particular markets (which may consist of relatives and friends) and are credited if a purchase is made. Considering affiliate marketing is conducted online, each affiliate is given a special link or identifier code that serves as their website identifier. These hyperlinks and identifiers are meant to drive visitors to the website and boost sales. The website can help identify the visitors who have registered using or as a response to the affiliate's efforts because each associate link or identifier code is specific to the affiliate. The affiliate then receives a fixed portion of all sales generated by such a referral. As a result, the affiliate will receive larger commissions the more aggressively they spread the word (link) and find new customers.

As mentioned earlier, the evolving economy requires people who are quick to adapt and work hard to remain relevant. Therefore, it is more crucial today than ever to start a side hustle. Affiliate marketing is one of the most lucrative methods of earning extra money for hard-working people. While there are many people today who want to make a substantial income with little to no effort, the reality is that this is not a likely scenario. However, there is a lot of money to be made online for people who are diligent and serious about earning large sums of money online. The great thing about affiliate marketing is that it is one of the best ways to start a job without having to invest much money. Since affiliates do not sell their products, there is no need for capital to create a product, shipping, or logistics.

There aren't many companies that offer the great opportunity to become an affiliate. However, Simple Sellable Solutions offers an affiliate program for the SimpleSell Bulk SMS platform. The purpose of this affiliate system is to create an opportunity for people to make a considerable income on the side easily and reliably. Moreover, the platform enables affiliates to earn a consistent income by providing payment for all purchases even after the first purchase. Most affiliate programs only enable the affiliate to earn from the first purchase. However, with Simple Sellable, affiliates can earn several times from the same customer as long as the customer makes a purchase.

Why should you become an affiliate?

  1. It's completely free. Yes, becoming an affiliate with Simple Sellable Solutions is completely free. There are no startup or hidden costs to becoming an affiliate. Since affiliates are paid on a commission basis there is no reason to ask for any financial commitment from the affiliates. As such, anyone can start at any time without any risk involved.
  2. It's easy to start! Unlike many other forms of work where you need a lot of specialization or extensive working experience, affiliates do not need to provide any educational certificates or work backgrounds to start. In fact, with Simple Sellable Solutions, the only thing you need is an email address to sign up and an M-Pesa phone number to receive payments.
  3. You don’t have to deal with people one-on-one like in brokering. Even though an affiliate marketer is essentially a broker, he or she works online and therefore does not have to meet people or talk to them one-on-one to convince them to buy. As such, it is a great option for people who may have social anxiety or challenges with expressing themselves one-on-one. Introverts would also prefer this method and thrive in the same.
  4. You work on your own terms. Being an affiliate means that you decide how much you want to work and how you want to work. Unlike traditional employment where the company or employer determines your work schedule, affiliate marketing is dependent on your own schedule. However, as stated earlier it is a commission-based system and therefore low commitment is likely to result in low financial returns.
  5. Work from home or anywhere else. Becoming an affiliate gives you the flexibility to work from any place and at any time. You can post links on your social media pages with your phone or mobile device or put the link on your website, blog, or YouTube channel among other possible ideas. You can even create posters and use them at any time for your marketing campaigns.

Who cannot become an affiliate?

  1. Anyone who does not want to work online. Affiliate marketing requires access to the internet and some level of understanding of how to use it. Moreover, one must need a device that can connect to the internet such as a smartphone, tablet, or laptop. Moreover, one may need to have a social media or online presence to maximize earnings by sharing their affiliate link with their friends or followers.
  2. Lazy people. Affiliate marketing is not a get-rich-quick scheme. As with any other form of money-making opportunity, it requires some level of exertion. That means you cannot ignore the need for work and expect to miraculously attract clients for commissions. Since affiliates earn from the number of referrals, the more the number of referrals, the higher their commissions are likely to be.
  3. People who do not bother to understand the product. Becoming an affiliate is marketing a product and recommending it to others. As such, it is necessary to understand the product to effectively market it. It is easier to explain to people something you understand well than something you do not know. Moreover, answering questions from interested parties requires adequate knowledge of the product or service provided.
  4. People with unrealistic expectations. As stated earlier, affiliate marketing does not require much financial commitment. However, this does not mean that the work does not require any form of financial commitment to yield results. Some of the most successful affiliates have invested their time and money to create valuable content to reach potential customers. This may be in the form of creating blogs, YouTube channels, social media ads, and online ads.
  5. People who lack focus. As with any other sector, it is important to find a niche. Affiliate marketers that try to sell everything to everyone have a hard time penetrating the market because they do not have a specific target audience or product. As such, it is necessary to ensure that you have a clear goal and niche to attract audiences. Consistency is key to succeeding in Affiliate marketing.
