How to Make Money Online in India

I can tell you the exact methods that I used to earn money online using my laptop and internet connection. 

You can make money online:

  • If you have a passion to learn a new skill (like content writing, SEO, designing, video editing)
  • You can work consistently on your side business even if you don’t earn anything in the initial days.

11 Fast Ways to Earn Money Online

1. Become a Freelancer

If you are a good programmer, designer or marketer then you can find a lot of paid online jobs in India. You just need to be patient and willing to learn more. Freelancing is the best way to earn money online without any investment if you have the required skills.

You need to have two skills to become a good freelancer. One is your core skill, and the second skill is marketing. If you are not a good marketer, then seek help from an experienced marketer to make your profile. You have to have excellent communication skills to get clients.

2. Become a Stock Trader

You don’t need any money to start a freelance work but you would need a little money to start your career as a stock trader.

You can earn money online by doing stock trading if you know how to pick the right stock. You need a demat & trading account to start trading.

I must make you aware that you may lose money in stock trading so better to start with less money and invest more time in learning the basics of stock trading.

You can learn how to earn Rs. 1000 daily from intraday trading. You can start trading after learning the basics of stock trading.

Discount brokers are best for intraday trading as they charge fix brokerage up to Rs 20/trade irrespective of trade volume.

#3. Become a Consultant

You can sell your advice and knowledge to many people. You don’t have to be a super expert in one domain to become a consultant or teacher, you just have to be better than your student or client.

Anyone with a core competitive skill can become a consultant and find clients online. For example, if you are a legal or finance professional, then you can make your website, and start attracting clients online.

4. Earn Online Money from YouTube

You might not know that people are making millions from youtube. Again, not an easy option, but very much doable for anyone who can record & upload videos on a particular topic.

Two kinds of people can make successful YouTube channels, one who make funny & entertaining videos, second who can make highly helpful videos for a niche audience (like students, mothers, housewives, tech geeks).

5. Make Money from Social Media

There is no limit on earning money from Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

The social media fan base is an asset for such people, most of them are in the entertainment domain. People related to fashion and entertainment domain can monetise their Instagram page.

6. Become Domain Flipper

You can buy brandable domains and sell at a higher price at domain marketplaces.

I own more than 50 domains at this time. I keep on investing in the domains and sold one domain at the valuation of $15,000 (equivalent to Rs. 10 lakh). When you start working on your online business then you will also learn how to make money from the domain selling.

7. Income from Content Writing

You can earn money easily if you know how to write good content. You can learn the art of copywriting to make a decent income online.

Good content writers are high in demand who are earning upto $200 per article.

8. Start A Blog

Your blog can be your online business, it will take some time to build your website traffic and earn money. But once you start earning money from blog, then your blog generate money even when you are sleeping.

You can create Ads using simple Google Adsense and earn money with google.

9. Learn Affiliate Marketing

Starting affiliate marketing is similar to running a retail shop. You signup with retailers like Amazon and Flipkart, promote your favourite products on your website and social media to make decent money.

I am discussing affiliate marketing as a separate option because it can fit with any kind of online business. Some people don’t even have a website but make money through affiliate marketing.

10. Sell Softwares Online

That is the most beautiful and profitable way of running an online business. You can build small products and sell them on subscription model (Software as a Service).

You can also launch paid mobile apps for Android and Apple. You can make one million dollars if your $10 app is downloaded by 100,000 people.

11. Sell Products Through Shopify

You must be having some products in mind to sell on an online store – it could be electronics, designer jewellery or handkerchiefs.

You can easily launch your online store using shopify and sell your products worldwide.

  3. You stated facts exactly as they are! Most blogs, in my experience, just add fluff, and most of those methods don’t even work in India. You explain practical solutions that, can be highly beneficial.

    I also run a blog in a related field, and there is a lot I can learn from you. Keep up the good work sir.

    I am working in a real estate company where I am not satisfied with the salary. I want a side income by working in my free hours in evening or late night hrs but not getting a correct path for the same. What should I do for the extra income.

    • Hi,
      If your content making skill is good and take patient for long time then you become blogger.
      If you want to touch with real estate already then you become real estate consultant with multiple companies or firms(It is best advantage is multiple offers provide to leads (customer)).

    • You might not find paid work in these niches. I would suggest you to explore other niches like beauty, lifestyle, health, fitness, or finance in which there is high demand for quality content writers.

  15. You are totally right , I experienced since I was graduated from BCA that there is no simple and immediate platform to earn money online . Recently , I was working for Covid -19 Vaccination work as a Data Operator but the work is closed for some reason. I am totally disappointed at this moment I don’t know how my family will survive if I can’t do anything there is no job outside for us if there is any work they charged first then they scheduled any interview for candidate .I see your blogs as well as 12 ways to make money but still I have no idea how it works.

  16. Sir,
    I have a solid grasp of the English language. Though I am still a student, I can produce professionally written works on just about any subject. I can also design simple creative content with the skills I developed through self-study. However, I have not been able to find clients to work with since my resume is practically empty.

    I hope you can help me take a step further and that we can work together in the future.

    Thank You.
