Here, you will need to have a solid understanding of search engine optimization (SEO), search engine marketing and social media marketing.
Also, your tone should be conversational and casual.
Mostly, you will be provided with articles by the client and required to pick the tone.
Copywriting is actually writing an article that will be used primarily by the client for selling.
This category is where the money is especially when you are writing for the finance niche.

Starting a blog is a business that you should really consider.

With this kind of a business, you can be able to start other online or offline businesses.
Blogging is a must skill for every millennial. It will open more and more opportunities to you and the generations to come.
In kenya, blogging is like land, your children will wish you started one today just the way you wished your grandfather had bought a larger land in their days.
√ Flipping websites
If you don’t want to hold on a blog for a long term, you can start, develop them until they start making money and then you dispose.
This is like real estate business where you buy land, develop and sell for a premium.
There are those entrepreneurs who prefer to come up with new idears, this are people who like putting their idears into practice.
If you are one of this people, then, this is what you should be doing.
Dropshipping is one of my favourite online business.
Here, you are selling products without ever keeping inventories.
You built an online store, get goods from a supplier, feel your store and when a customer makes an order, you inform the supplier who ships the product direct to the buyer.
√ Flipping domain names
I have not tried this one but it’s another goldmine.
You register a domain name that you know will be in demand and old it.
When a customer damands one, you sell it at a premium.
You got to keep a huge profit with this business model without having to lift your finger.

Mutual funds are good for investors who have not yet mastered the game of investing.
They start with mutual funds to feel how this world of investing works before they can venture wholly into equity.

With your cash invested in mutual funds, you can be able to access it in a short notice.
√ Unit trusts
After graduating from mutual funds, you will want to try your hand in units trust.
Here, you will be growing your money at a faster rate than when you were in the mutual funds.
Once you are comfortable with unit trusts, you should be heading to where the real money is.
That’s REITs and shares.
Shares also known as equity or stocks is buying part ownership of a company.
Instead of buying or starting your own business, you decide to buy part of the business.
With this approach, you can make money when the business is profitable and share in loses when things fall apart.
This, you do with your laptop, the business is run by professionals while you focus on other things.

Don’t loose hope, there is a way that you can do it.
You can start small, buying a small piece at a time through REITs.
Instead of saving your cash until you can be able to afford a plot at Runda, which can take centuries, you can approach it this way.
