5 Genuine Ways To Earn Money Online

Freelancing / Become a Freelancer

A Freelancer means an independent person who offers his services to a client. Freelancing means selling or offering their own skills to others. In Freelancing, a person is not a permanent employee of any company.

If you have good skills like Designing, Content Writing, Web Development, Programming, CopyWriting, etc then you can offer these services to anyone who looking for it and in return, you can get paid from them.

The best part of Freelancing is that you can work for anyone, even for clients sitting in the US, UK, or Canada. You don’t have to go anywhere. You can just work from home. Believe me, Freelancing is the best way to earn money online without investment.

If you are thinking that from where you will get clients who are looking for service that you are offering, then you just need to sign up for the websites such as Fiverr, UpWork, or Freelancer where you will find lots of clients looking for many types of services. These websites are free to join. They only charge you when you get your payment as a commission.

Fiverr Gigs

Another best part of Freelancing is that you don’t need any type of investment. You just need to start working for a client from home.

Start Blogging to Earn Money

Same like Freelancing, Blogging is also a good way to make money from home. Anyone can do Blogging. You don’t need to go anywhere else to do blogging. You just need a Computer/Laptop and a working Internet connection.

The best part about Blogging is that you can make money even when you are sleeping. But there is one limitation in Blogging. It is not an overnight process or like Freelancing that you deliver the work and you get paid.

You need to work consistently especially in the initial stage of Blogging. Once you get some rhythm and authority in the eyes of Google, you will start getting money on autopilot.

What is Blogging?

Blogging means sharing your expertise with others through a particular medium. A medium can be anything like a website or a blog or a YouTube Channel or Podcasting or even Social Media Platforms.

You can share your opinions or talk about anything in which you have expertise. You can write articles on your blog or post a video on YouTube or Posting pictures on Instagram, etc.

For example:

  • Teaching cooking through YouTube Channel
  • Writing reviews of Gadgets through Blog
  • Posting amazing photos of places you visit on Instagram

How To Earn Money From Blogging?

You can earn money from blogging in many ways. Google AdSense and Affiliate Marketing are one of the most popular ways of monetizing blogging.

You just need to sign up for Google AdSense and then you can place Google Ads on your website or a blog. Once you start getting some traffic, you will earn money from these Ads.

Another way is Affiliate Marketing. You can review different products on your blog or YouTube Channel and you have to place the Affiliate link in the description. Once a user buys from your affiliate link, you will earn a commission.

If you want to know more about Blogging, then I have published an in-depth article on How To Start A Blog That Makes Money.

Income from Writing Work

If you are someone who loves writing, then believe me you are going to make a good amount of money every single month. Because Freelance writers are in huge demand.

You just need to learn the writing skill if you don’t know. Even in Writing, there are many types like Blog Writing, Copywriting, Email Writing, etc.

Now the rate of writing depends on your writing skills. You can earn as low as Rs 0.50 paisa per word to Rs 2 to Rs 3 per word. Even experienced writers are earning Rs 5,000 to Rs 30,000 per single article.

Yes! You read it right. Rs 30,000 per single article. It is mind-blowing, isn’t it?

Even if you don’t have any writing skills, you can still learn if. All you need is a passion to write. You don’t need to write for every topic/niche, just pick two or three topics that you love most and start writing on these topics.

How To Get Clients For Writing Work?

Again a good question. As I said earlier in the case of Freelancing, you can get clients from Freelancing sites like Fiverr, UpWork, Freelancer, Truelancer, etc.

But when it comes to Writing Work, you can get clients from many other platforms apart from these freelancing sites. I have mentioned few platforms below:

  1. ProBlogger
  2. Contena
  3. BloggingPro
  4. AllFreelancingWriting
  5. FreelanceWriting
  6. LinkedIn

Learn Stock Market Trading

Stock Market Trading is totally different from Freelancing or Blogging. Here you will be required money to start trading in the stock market.

It totally depends on you that how much you are willing to invest in the stock market. But I would like to aware you about the fact that you can lose money in the stock market if you don’t have knowledge of picking the right stocks and how the stock market works.

I would suggest you learn about the Stock Market, how trading works, how to pick the right stock at the right time, Technical Analysis, Fundamental Analysis, etc.

If you have made your mind that you want to do stock market trading, then you will need a Demat and Trading Account to start buying & selling stocks.

Many brokers are available who offers Demat and Trading account. I will recommend Discount Brokers because they are best for Intraday Trading as they charge fix brokerage up to Rs 20 per trade.

You can open your Demat & Trading Account with Zerodha who is India’s best discount broker.


You can also open your FREE Demat and Trading Account with one of the trusted brand – Angel Broking.

Make Money With Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing can be done along with Blogging. It is one of the best methods to monetize your blog.

But what if you don’t have a blog? And still, you want to do Affiliate Marketing?

The answer is a big YESSSS!

You can do Affiliate Marketing even if you don’t have a blog or a youtube channel. And it is one of the most effective ways to make money online without investment.

There are a lot of Affiliate Programs available in the market. You just need to sign up for your niche/topic related Affiliate Programs. Once you sign up, you will get a unique affiliate link from the company. The company can track your sales through the unique link given to you.

How to Earn through these Affiliate Links?

Now you have your own unique affiliate links, you just need to promote these links through various platforms.

  • You can share it on your WhatsApp Groups.
  • You can share it on your Social Media Accounts and Pages.
  • You can share it on your blog. Or you can create a micro-niche blog around your affiliate products and earn commissions.
  • You can share it on YouTube Channel.

Final Thoughts on How To Earn Money Online in India?

In 2014, I made a decision to learn Finance and I stuck to my decision. Then in 2017, I made a decision to learn Blogging and started a blog.

These two decisions are one of the best decisions I have ever made. These have changed my life. I am earning quite good while sitting at home and chilling with my family.

The best time to start an online business was 10-12 years back. Now the second-best time is 2020-2021.

Listen, earning money online is not a quick-rich scheme. But if you will put consistent efforts on it, then nobody can stop you.

All you need to do is pick a niche/topic, select an option from all these options, and start doing practice. You just have to stick with your decision because there is no overnight success in this online world.
