11 Proven Ways to Earn Money Online for Indian People Like Me

Earn Money Online in India

Note: I am an Indian, so I include my country name here. All the ways to make money listed here will work for all countries, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and so on.

1. Earn Money Blogging

Blogging can also be used as a source of income. ( Checkout the monthly earning of top AdSense earners in India ) Creating a blog and placing ads on Google AdSense means that your website traffic will increase your revenue through Google AdSense. Blogging is nothing more than writing our opinions regularly on a website. Blogging can be related to anything like food, technology, travel, etc.

Learn: How to Make Money from Google AdSense

The second highest possibility of making money online is blogging (the first is affiliate marketing). After starting a blog professionally, earnings will increase day-by-day. Even so, when I was no longer able to do my daily updates to my blog, the flow of money no longer stopped. So my first suggestion is to start a blog and make money online.

2. Earn Money Affiliate Marketing

When I talk about making money online; Affiliate Marketing claims the top position based on earnings. But when you are not able to continue working for a few days; Money will stop flowing. This is the difference between Google AdSense and affiliate marketing.

So, my first suggestion is to move to AdSense. However, if you have the ability to sell online, you can start earning online through affiliate marketing.

In either case (AdSense or Affiliate) you need a blog or website to promote your content or affiliate products.

Typically, major e-commerce websites like Amazon, Flipkart, Paytm, Snapdeal look for people who promote products on their websites. They take the approved registration and give them a unique ID. If one places an order through a link generated by the unique affiliate ID, you can earn around 5-10% of the order value.

Affiliate earnings make good money once you are able to regularly get visitors/buyers who have purchased through your link.

3. Earn Money Freelancing

Freelancing means working for someone at our leisure. Through this, we can make a lot of money by using our skills and our knowledge. There are many freelancing websites available on the Internet. After we join, we see that there are several clients and the jobs they need, which indicates the working time required to finish the work and the factors that are on a job basis. It also shows how much money you can earn by completing the work. By doing this we can make a lot of money if we are better at doing something than others.

  • This is a marketplace where some people come online to look for work and some people come to hire them.
  • That’s great Thousands of online workers earn a decent amount of money every day. Some of the most trusted and reputable freelancing marketplaces are Fever.com, FreelanceArin, and Upwork. The sign-up process is very simple.
  • You can list your abilities on your profile on the sites that will be hired. When someone finds your profile to fit their work, they hire you and you’ll have the opportunity to earn money online.

However, freelancing is not for a person like me! I have tried it in the past but cannot find success. Explain to me the drawback of becoming a freelancer.

When you hire a job and successfully distribute it, your profile receives a star rating. Every job provider chooses to hire a highly rated profile. They search their work competencies and hire top-rated profiles for the job. Due to the low profile rating, they do not initially fit the criteria.

” When nobody hires you, how you got a star rating?

With zero star rating, no-one come to hire you! “

So I stopped wasting my time on freelancer sites.

5. Earn Money with YouTube

Stocks and Forex trading are a great way to make money online. Currently, anyone can open a demat account to start trading and earn handsome returns online. FNO Trading and Intraday can make you richer than any other online money-making opportunity.
