Way to make money online
Freelancing is currently trending option to earn money online. More importantly, Its genuine. You get to work with small-medium-big companies depending on your skill set.
You can get to work as Web Designer, Graphic Designer, Web Developer, Content Writer, Data Entry Operator, Data Scrapper, Programmer, SEO, etc. So, there are lot of options to get along with.
Freelancing need lot of patience. You might take months to get your initial few jobs. But once you get few jobs on your dashboard, no one can stop you. Here are some best freelancing sites.
Upwork is merger of two freelancing giants i.e Odesk & Elance. It is now even a bigger platform. It provides jobs in various fields like Design, Data Entry, SEO, Data Scrapping, etc. The important thing about upwork is, anybody can get started with ease.
It provides jobs in every aspect like “per hour OR per project Payment”, “Entry-Intermediate-Expert level jobs”, “Shot-Long term project”. You can make $3/hr to $100/hr depending on your skill set. Or you can charge fixed amount like $50 to $3000+ for entire work depending on project.
Freelancer is also one of the big platform. It also have various fields just like upwork. But, it creates a big difference when it comes to one service i.e “Contests“. It is very unique service provided by freelancer. If you are really good at your skills, then you can earn $10 to $1000+ per design.
Site works on gigs. Gigs are noting but mentioned services which you provide to your client. These gigs(services) starts from $5. You can modify them as per your requirement. You can create different packages like Basic, Standard, Premium. So that customer can choose the one as per his need & budget. One noticeable thing is, you can charge extra $5, $10, $20, etc for express delivery of service.
If you are really good at designing & creativity, go for this site. It work just like freelancer. User submit multiple entries in contest. Contest Holder choose winning entry. Once winner is declared and files are transfers, freelancer get paid. If the project is big, work will go on. And you will keep making money.
Contentmart is a marketplace for quality content writing. It is not as famous as other top freelancing sites. But, I wanted to mention it because, there are lots of readers who are interested in content writing. And sometimes, they don’t get to know such sites. You can make $3/500 words to $35/500 words depending on your content quality.
Blogging mean providing useful information or sharing your experience on regular basis. People starts interacting with you after reading your blog as the information you provided is useful for them and they might have questions regarding particular topic.
Blogging need lot of patience, consistency and dedication. It take a year or two to build a blog with pretty decent traffic. Once your blog getting respectable page views, you start earning good money from it. Lets check blogging ways to earn money.
Its one of the most popular way to earn money. You need to display a banner or link on your page. If someone clicks on it and make purchase, you get percentage or fixed amount. But, If he dont buy any service or product, you wont get any money. In simple words, if they get money, you get money.
Many people will suggest you to use platforms likes: CJ Affiliate or ClickBank. But I will recommend to use affiliate link provided by company itself. Today, major companies are providing affiliate program so that user can directly take its advantage. You can earn $5 to $100+ per affiliate depending on products.
Its also one the most old but popular way to earn good cash. You can display ad in two way. Either, you use third party services like “Google AdSense or Media.net” OR you can sell ad space directly to them who want to display there ads on your site. Second option can make you lot of money but your blog must be a very big hit to attract such customer.
You can start selling your own products like templates, themes, e-book, Stock photos, etc. But you must take care of three thing to maintain trust of your readers. One – Your product must be worth purchasing. Second – Your product must not create any disturbance for your readers. Third – Provide good service after sale.
d. Paid Membership
You can create your own video tutorials on web programming like PHP, WordPress, Bootstrap, Magento etc. Or you can create videos based on your blog topics with actual demo . Create membership. So, only members can access such content. More members, more money.
e. Sponsored Posts
These are the posts about particular company product or service. These companies, pays you to put this post on your blog. Indirectly, you are selling ad space to those company. You get these ads from third party websites. The only difference is, ad rate is decided by third party sites. And you share commission with them.
3. Create Channel On YouTube(YT)
If you love creating & editing videos, you are looking at right option. Yes..!!! Millions of users are on YT. You need to create channel and generate lots of subscriber. Once your videos start getting good reviews, you can earn good money. More subscriber means more views. And more views means more money. But its not easy to get thousands of subscriber in few months or a year.
Your video content must be great and unique. If the content is good, you will get lots of subscribe for your channel. And don’t try to upload copyrighted content. Copyright owner can claim on you very strongly. And even if you upload such content anyhow, all the money goes to copyright owner. So, its not worth anyhow.
4. Sell HD Photos
Shocked..!!! Some of might and some of you might not. But I was shocked for sure when I first heard of selling images online. But its true. You can sell images.

6. Develop Educational Courses On Udemy
Its just like YouTube video tutorials. You need to create a good quality content video. And share it on udemy. The only difference is here you are using already famous platform to reach to core niche people with less competition as compared to YouTube. And you can get some good cash.
On the other hand, if your channel gets 100,000+ subscribers. You can earn more on YT than udemy. So both the platform have individual pros and cons.
Envato is digital marketplace for web industry. It sell creative assets. You can sell photos, audios, videos, 3d models, graphics, scripts & plugins, etc. You might think “why purchase”.

Note – There are many other ways like GPTC(Get Paid To Click), Captcha Solver, Make Money from Survey. If you ask me personally, I will not recommend any of these option. Because their pay is not worth the time we invest. So, ignore these options and save your time.
