As much as many parts of the world have people working online daily South Africans are yet to catch up on this trend. I left my job in South Africa in 2019 to work online and now I am helping people know how to make money online in South Africa easily.

By the end of this post you should be on your way to earning some money online. I want to warn you that you will need to work hard to make this happen at least for 6 months.

I will show you three best ways to achieve this and I will recommend the one that is best to follow.

Let’s get right into it.

Before we start you may also prefer to watch the video where I summaries the ways of making money online.

Writing online surveys and getting paid

This is undoubtedly one of the easiest ways to cash in money and many times instantly.

How this works is that you fill in a survey where you answer questions that the company asks you and then after that you earn some sort of commission.

The steps are simple you OPEN your account by registering with your email and then you verify your account and then open link to your bank account if you are in South Africa.

Once you have an account you basically wait for gigs to write your view. Remember you do not need to have prior experience when it comes to this.

Now South African companies have not known this before and that is why other companies from other countries have been dominating.

Example are companies like SurveyJunkie, you can check out the review and Swagbucks.

Thank God South African companies are also starting to see the value in this and that is why they are not starting to introduce surveys that pay.

Here are some of the best South African companies which pay:

Affiliate marketing

How to make money online in South Africa easily

Affiliate marketing is one business venture that is still to rise not only in South Africa but in many other countries too.

Affiliate marketing is basically where you promote a company or product and you get commission for your work. Many companies are looking for people to help them expand online.

The great aspect about affiliate marketing you can generally start with little to no experience to earn money online.

However you will need to be knowledgeable about this which is not hard to learn, especially since I did it with no computer skills.

If you would like to learn for free I suggest a free platform called Wealthy Affiliate which free and will help you to learn the skills until you are confident.

Wealthy Affiliate is geared towards beginners and advanced online business people of affiliate marketers who want to earn money online.

The reason I have been in Wealthy affiliate is because of the great training which took me from absolute beginner to advanced professional within a year.

The steps you do to become and affiliate marketer:

  • Create your own website
  • Start promoting a product on your website.

One thing I want to tell you is that you do not have to promote a certain company or a product but you can actually promote something related to your hobbies.

What do I mean by this?

Well I mean that you can start a website related to your website and then start promoting products which are related to that hobby.

For example let’s say your hobbies is Tennis. You can open a website talking about anything related to tennis. Whether tennis balls, tennis outfits or tennis rackets etc.

Take photos and get paid

Just like taking surveys you will not anything but your items like camera and an internet connection and you can get started with this.

So all you do is take pictures and after this you submit these to online photo companies and then if your pictures are approved you get good amounts of money.

Although this sounds very easy you need to be unique for your photos to be taken so you can get cash.

For this reason I suggest having a good quality camera and unique photos taken at unique angles. This will help a lot in making sure these websites recognize your photos.

My number 1 recommendation: How I make money online

Now I will talk about the best way to make money out of all of these and the one that helped me quit my job this year and work online full time.

The one I highly recommend is affiliate marketing because you are building a long term business which will sustain you overtime.

I know this because I started internet marketing from 2016 and I am still building a six figure business from it although it is still able to sustain my living.

You may be wondering how I learnt to be an affiliate marketer?

Well I started with a program which costs me huge amount called Internet income intensive. Although I learnt a lot through the program I was unable to make any money.

It was only after finding a free program called Wealthy Affiliate which helped me learn all I needed for making money online.

I did a review for this program and you can check it out on Wealthy affiliate review 2019.

Final thoughts

making money online in South Africa is not hard at all. It just needs dedication to see it through. The best ways I recommend is writing surveys, affiliate marketing and taking photos and getting paid.

Affiliate marketing is the promoting or a product or company is an exchange for a commission, which can grow very quickly.

However to make it in this venture you need to really make sure that you know what you are doing and that is why I recommend proper training for this.

If you decide to do surveys or photos to get paid you do not need any sort of training just your uniqueness.

I hope you are enjoyed this article and I hope it was helpful to you. If you have questions or comments to add you can leave them below.

    Interesting article!
    I did not realize that there were these options for making money in South Africa and that they would be potentially so lucrative.
    There are many survey companies but I like how you included some of the better ones to help make money easily.
    Getting properly trained for affiliate marketing is definitely important. I like how you make it clear that affiliate marketing can work but you need to be prepared to put in months of work in order to get significant results.
    Thanks for all the great information!

    Hi, thanks for this great post.
    I am truly passionate about making money online and quitting the 9 -5 (more like 9-6 in my country) rat race, and you have provided very good ways to do that.
    I agree affiliate marketing is one of the best methods to make this dream come true, although other methods like selling photos and online surveys are also great.
    Cheers,
    Michael
