1. Make Money BloggingI have been earning money with blogging for almost 11 years. I have made more than 2 million dollars with blogging.
But I was a little confused when I started my career in blogging.
I had zero ideas about blogging when I started my first blog in 2009. I worked very hard for blogging but made no money for almost one year.
But I did not give up! I researched topics on Google like:
And things were getting started in my favor after some time. I made my first $100+ (from Google AdSense) from blogging in 2011. Then there was no looking back. Today, I make almost $25,000 (Rs 15 Lacs+) monthly from blogging.

2. Become a YouTuber YouTube is the hot craze in 2022. Everyone wants to become a YouTuber. Everyone wants to make a lot of money & fame through YouTube.
If you want high motivation, you can see the list of these famous and highest subscribed YouTubers here on SureJob who are making millions from YouTube.
You don't need to live your job, studies, or other things to be a YouTuber. You can even do it part-time and make sufficient money.
Here are the exact steps if you want to be a successful YouTuber:-
Step 1: Decide your niche.
Like I create videos on digital marketing in my channel Pritam Nagrale, you need to decide the topics you want to choose for your videos.
You can choose a niche like comedy videos, motivation, self-help, vlogs, interview series, kitchen recipes, health, how-to-do videos, travel tips, news channels, sports, gaming, or similar on YouTube.
Step 2: Create your Channel
Create a YouTube channel in your name. Add an attractive profile pic and banner image. Edit your bio section and add some quality information about you as I have added in my channel Pritam Nagrale.
Step 3: Create videos
It's good if you have a professional camera, but you can also use your smartphone camera. Check a proper silent place and suitable lights to shoot good quality videos.
Step 4: Promote your videos.
Though YouTube tries to promote your videos, you can get views, and subscribers fast if you take some effort. You can start promoting by sending it to your friends and list on social platforms like WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, etc.
A good title, description, and thumbnail will also help you get more views on your videos.
Step 5: Monetize your videos
Once your channel completes 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of videos views within 12 months, you can apply for the YouTube partner program. YouTube plays ads in your videos and pays you for the number of views your video receives.
Once you reach 5000 or 10000 subscribers, companies will approach you for sponsorship.
They pay Rs.5000 to Rs. 10,000 to the micro publishers and more than a lacs to mega influencers for sponsoring one video. I have sponsored videos for my channel, Pritam Nagrale and DMatic Digital.
3. Affiliate Marketing Affiliate marketing was an excellent way to earn money online in 2004 when I started my online career with affiliate marketing. It is still the most lucrative business on the internet.
Affiliate marketing promotes and sells products of online companies like Amazon, eBay, Clickbank, and thousands of others. You can find a list of the 99 best affiliate programs available in India here.
I use various channels to promote my affiliate products, such as My blogs SureJob and MoneyConnexxion, YouTube channels, email list, and other micro affiliate sites.
I even use paid marketing like Google Ads and Native ads to promote some profitable affiliate programs that pay $50+ for each sale or lead.
There are other ways as well you can use to promote affiliate programs like Pinterest, Quora, Medium, Instagram, etc.
Thousands of affiliates make $5000+ every month promoting different affiliate programs and networks like Amazon, CJ, ShareASale, Clickbank, finance and cryptos affiliate programs, and various others.
4. Become a FreelancerFreelancing is an excellent work from home option where you work independently for your clients for some temporary contracts. Sometimes it can be permanent depending on the mutual understanding.
Here basically, you sell your skills to your clients. You must have expertise in some field before you work as a freelancer. You can provide freelancing services in content writing, digital marketing, graphic designing, app development, or any other.
Most freelancers earn between $1000 to $5000 per month depending on various factors like freelance work, client budget, the number of hours daily, etc.
There are 25-30 popular freelance sites like People Per Hour, UpWork, Fiverr, WorkNHire, etc. You can get many clients from these platforms.
But there is a lot of competition on these platforms. You need to create an attractive profile, provide your services for reasonable rates and collect some good reviews from clients before you charge high to your clients.
5. Earn Money with Online SurveysDo you know that you can earn money by taking online surveys? Depending on the length of the surveys, It takes 5 minutes to 10 minutes and sometimes 30 minutes to complete a survey.

There are a few websites like Amazon Mechanical Turk, MicroWorker, SEOClerk, etc where you can signup as a micro-job worker. You can earn some additional income from these websites.
10. Online SellingLast year, I published an interview video (which went viral) of an online seller, Mr. Nimit Lodha, on my channel Pritam Nagrale. Mr. Nimit is a seller with Amazon & Flipkart and has an annual turnover of Rs. 50 Crore.
That is the power of online selling.
Online selling is very much different than traditional selling. In the traditional way, there is not much scope for selling your products or services outside your local area, but in online selling, you can sell your products and services all over the country and even globally.
There are 2 best ways to sell your products online.
The first way is to create an e-commerce website for your business and sell your products from your online store. Second is, you can become a seller with Amazon, Flipkart, or other top online shopping sites.
The second option is much better and simple. You don't need to hunt for the customers. You can get millions of existing customers from these reputed online stores.
Are you thinking what if I don't have any product?
Many Amazon and Flipkart sellers don't own any product, but still, they are selling various products on these platforms and making a profit from this business.
What you can do is, go to your local market & try to find some exclusive products that you can sell on Amazon or Flipkart. E.g., if you go to the Manish Market in Mumbai, you can find many best products at a much cheaper rate than Amazon.
Another option is to import cheap products from other neighboring countries.
There is a lot of competition on Amazon and other shopping portals. You need to make a balance between your price and profit margin to become a successful seller.
11. Domain TradingDomain trading is one of the most profitable business if you have good research skills in buying domain names that may fetch an excellent amount in the future but are still available to grab.
Last year, I was doing casual research for domain name availability, and I found a good name. Though I don't deal in domain trading, I booked it.
A few days later, I got a message from someone asking me to sell this domain name. I had no experience in this, so I started the conversation.
Initially, he offered me $500, but I refused; he then sent a follow-up email asking for my selling price.
I asked him $4000, but after some negotiation, I sold the domain for $2000.
I bought it just for $17 for sold for $2000—almost 115 times profit.
And that's the reason domain traders make thousands of dollars every month selling domain names.
If you actively search for quality domains and buy, you can sell them for the very high amount to companies in the future.
When a company finds that the domain he is looking for is available with you, they will send you a message to buy it. Now you need to set the price according to the demand and negotiate with the company as I did in my case.
You can even sell these domains on Flippa or GoDaddy auction so that you can fetch more than your desired price.
12. Website FlippingWebsite flipping is also a good business to earn money online. It's similar to domain trading but here with websites.
That means here you have to buy a website and sell it for a higher price in the future. There are various platforms like Flippa Empire Flippers, which you can use for website flipping.
You will find thousands of buyers on these platforms who are interested in buying your website for 40 times to 50 times the price of your average monthly profit.
For example, if you make a net profit of $500 from AdSense or affiliate programs or both from your website, you can sell it for $20,000 to $25,000.
There are two ways to sell a website on these platforms.
The first is – to start a new blog, work on it for 6 months to 1 year, monetize it with AdSense and affiliate programs for next 3 to 4 months and sell it.
The second way is – buy an existing website with some traffic and revenue from Flippa, work on it for next 3 months to 6 months, grow the profit and sell it again on Flippa.
This is much better way, as it's easier to grow the profit of an existing website with traffic as compared to a new website.
Many experienced flippers purchase such profitable websites from Flippa or other marketplaces and make a huge profit selling them again.
13. Sell training & consultancyDo you have some skills that people need badly? You may be an expert in the stock market, some subjects, meditation, motivation, managing finances, nutrition, entrepreneurship, etc.
There is a tremendous scope if you create training or course around your skill and sell it online. People are earning in lacs selling these courses through Facebook or Instagram.
You can create a landing page for your business where you can describe your product and how it can benefit people who buy it.
Just drive traffic from Facebook or Instagram to your product page and sell it in India and other countries.
You an also drive free traffic from YouTube, Google search and many other social platforms.
14. Stock & Forex Trading Stock trading & forex trading is a another profitable way to earn money. But if you are justa beginner, I will recommend you to get a basic training in this before you invest your money.
Several free and paid training and courses are available on Google and YouTube to get the training in the stock market. You should be careful before buying any course because there are so-called gurus who have not made any single penny, but they claim to be a millionaire.
You can even start reading newspapers like Economic times or watch TV channels like CNBC, subscribe to YouTube channels to get more idea on stock market. It may be risky for you to invest into stocks, forex, cryptos or NFTs without enough knowledge.
15. Earn money from your Smartphone There are many money making apps available in Google Play store and iOS store that can pay you some additional income by completing some easy tasks on your mobile.
Here are 60 best money-earning apps that, if you install and use on your mobile, you can make an extra income of $100 to $300 every month
These are very trusted mobile apps, rated 4+ stars by millions of people. You don't need to install all the apps. Try with few apps and if you like them, you can install more.
What is your job after installing these apps?
You have to take simple online surveys, install other apps, complete various offers, signup on other websites, play games, watch videos, etc.
Just make money on the go when you are traveling or sitting in a restaurant or waiting for someone.
I can assure you that these are the best ways to earn money online and this year is the best year to make money from the internet. I have been earning using many of these methods. So if you start today, you will have a stable career in the next one or two years. GUARANTEED.
10 Easy Ways to Make Money Online
The economy has been completely shaken up by COVID-19, with millions of Americans losing their jobs and having to find alternate ways of making ends meet.
Since so many workplaces are closed or limited due to lockdown restrictions, more people than ever before are looking online to find ways to make extra money right from home.
Here, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best ways to make money online with the skills you have now.
Give an online courseOne of the great things about the internet is how easily it allows us to share knowledge across borders. If you’re an expert in a particular subject or if there’s just something you think you can contribute to in your field, consider selling an online course.
Dozens of sites facilitate the process for you, like Skillshare, Udemy and Coursera, where you can create a course and upload the lesson videos and materials.
Depending on the site you go with, students can either buy your individual course or subscribe to the site and access all courses whenever they want. Most sites pay you per student, so the more popular your course gets, the more you’ll earn.
Start a blogAnother way you can share your knowledge with the world is with a blog dedicated to your area of expertise. Bloggers typically earn money by placing ads on the site.
The most popular way to do this is with Google AdSense — you decide where on the page you want the ads to appear and Google AdSense will match the content of your blog with advertisers looking for readers like yours.
Another way to make money blogging is by placing affiliate marketing links on your posts. With affiliate links, the URL has a unique code attached to it. When readers click on the link and make a purchase, you receive a commission.
Creating a blog doesn’t have to be difficult. Sites like WordPress, Squarespace and Wix can help you quickly create an attractive and easy-to-navigate website with integrated ads.
Sell your old clothesMost of us have items in our closet that we'd like to get rid of, but throwing out an old dress or vintage pair of shoes may feel like a waste if it’s still in good condition. One great way of making some extra cash is to sell the items cluttering up your home.
For clothing, online thrift shops like thredUP, Poshmark and Depop can help you free up space and make a few bucks on the side at the same time. For most sites, you’ll take care of the selling and shipping yourself.
Other sites, like thredUP, will ask you to mail your items to their distribution center, where they’ll take care of the sale and send you the earnings.
Find gigs on freelance marketplacesThese days, it’s easier than ever to work for yourself. One Statista report shows that 57 million freelancers were working in the United States in 2017. The number is expected to rise to 90 million in the next eight years, meaning that just over half of all workers will be freelancers —online and offline— at that time.
One popular way of finding freelancing gigs is through sites like Upwork, Toptal and Fiverr. There, you can advertise your work on any number of categories, from graphic design and web development to voice-over work and illustration.
Processes vary from site to site, but generally, clients will contact you with their request, and you can accept or turn down the job. Once the job is completed, you’ll submit it to the client and receive payment.
Sell stock photographyStock photography is a great alternative for artists looking for a side hustle. If you have a professional-grade digital camera, you can sell your high-resolution shots on dozens of sites. Some of the most popular are Shutterstock, Getty Images, Dreamstime, and iStock.
To sell stock photos and videos online, you’ll need basic knowledge of the types of images clients are looking for. You’ll also need to determine whether your photos will be royalty-free (meaning there is no additional payment after the first purchase) or rights-managed.
If you’re using models, you may want to look into model releases to protect your models’ image and your own liability.
Offer online tutoringWith the recent rise in distance learning, there are many opportunities to create a side hustle in online tutoring with students of all ages. Math and science tutors may be the most popular, but tutors in all subjects are in demand, including ESL tutors for language learners.
Some popular online tutoring sites are TutorMe, Skooli, Wyzant, Chegg and Khan Academy.
If you are a native speaker of a language other than English, you may consider language tutoring sites such as Italki, Preply and Verbling, where students sign up to practice their conversational skills with native speakers of the languages they’re studying.
Become a lenderThe rise of “crowdlending” is just another example of how the internet has shaken up practically every sector of the economy.
Before, someone looking for a personal loan had to go to the bank, credit union, or payday lender. If the person didn’t have good credit, they’d have to deal with high interest rates if they were approved for the loan at all.
Now, peer-to-peer (P2P) lending websites match borrowers with lenders who are just regular people like you.
Instead of taking the entire amount from a single lender, a loan can be pooled from multiple lenders. As the borrower pays back the loan, you will receive a portion of your investment back plus interest.
Some popular P2P lending platforms are Prosper, Perform and Upstart.
As with any investment, there are risks associated with P2P lending. The borrower may default on the loan and leave you and the other lenders in the lurch. But if you have extra money earning pennies in a savings account, crowdlending could be a way to make some passive income.
Start a streaming empireIt’s hard to imagine the internet before live-streaming became so widespread. Once, it was restricted to gamers playing live and talking to their viewers.
While gaming is still at the core of live-streaming, you don’t have to be a gamer to make money online as a streamer.
Creators of all kinds are broadcasting their lives across the internet, from cosplayers making their costumes on camera to groups of friends running a live Dungeons & Dragons session, to just regular people talking about their lives.
Income for streamers comes from subscriptions, donations, affiliate marketing, advertisements and third-party sponsorships.
The most popular streaming site is Twitch, but other sites like YouTube and Facebook offer user-friendly streaming tools. Similarly, social media apps like Periscope, Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok also allow you to stream from your mobile.
Sell your creationsIf you’re crafty or artistic, there are so many ways to earn money from your hobby.
Etsy is the most popular site for selling handmade products like leather purses, wall prints, custom phone covers, sewing patterns… the list goes on and on. Whatever quirky, weird thing you make will probably find a home there.
If you’re an artist looking to sell prints of your work, print-on-demand sites like CafePress, Big Cartel, RedBubble and Society6 can simplify things for you by printing and shipping products whenever customers purchase.
If you’d rather skip a marketplace's transaction fees and handle all aspects of the business yourself, e-commerce sites like eBay, Shopify, Big Commerce, Squarespace and Wix can help you set up your own online store, complete with payment processing.
Amazon is also a great choice if you're interested in dropshipping.
Get support from your followersFinally, if you’re a creator of any sort, you can receive financial support from your followers to pursue your projects.
Sites like Patreon allow you to set up a membership program with multiple tiers so you can produce exclusive content for your subscribers that other people can’t see. It’s a great way of showing off works in progress and sketches, or workshopping an idea with the help of your fans.
Another popular site is OnlyFans, which is mostly known for not-safe-for-work content; however, the site is open to creators in any field.
If you’d rather receive money for a specific project, then crowdfunding is the solution for you.
Sites like Kickstarter, Indiegogo and GoFundMe let you create a project proposal with a funding goal. Supporters can back you and, once you reach your financial goal, you receive the money (minus a central processing fee) with the promise to deliver to your backers.
Before you start hustlingThere are countless options for making money online, but you should always make sure you’re dealing with a reputable company. Beware of scams that ask you to make a large cash investment to purchase merchandise to sell.
Also, watch out for clients and customers who want to take advantage of you. Know what your work or product is worth and advocate for fair compensation whenever you can.
It's possible to make good money working a full-time job online and at home. Making your own way in the online job market will be hard at first, but it will be worth it.
