Now here’s a list of 10 ways you can make money online-

By filling surveys online- Filling surveys has always been boring but not if you can get paid for them. To earn money through surveys just follow this process-

  1. Sign up on a survey website such as  SaySo, Telly pulse, or Valued Opinion
  2. After registering yourself, you will receive survey emails on your registered email address
  3. Fill out the survey and collect reward points
  4. These points can be redeemed for vouchers or cash depending on the website and number of points collected.

Nowadays there is a ton of competition in this space, a lot of survey websites are present so you might not get a survey to fill that often. Also, many surveys might only offer vouchers and no cash, so if you’re not interested in vouchers then don’t waste too much time on these. And before signing up read the above safety pointers to avoid getting conned.

 By solving capcha and data entry:

However bizarre that sounds, its actually a thing. You can make up to Rs. 15,000 per month. But this is only for those who have lots and lots of patience to sit and research the good websites and then sit and manually do the job. Also there are many people who will try and cheat you by asking you to pay a registration amount to do a data entry job. So remember:

  • Never ever pay a registration amount or any amount to do a data entry job because that is 100% a scam.
  • Review the company’s reputation by searching things like “company name + complaints” or “company name + review”.

Affiliate Marketing:

This is a fun and easy way of making money, all you need to do is sign up with your preferred websites like Amazon, Flipkart etc. and you list your favorite books or products on your social media, your website or blog and whoever clicks the link through these portals and buys the product you get a cut/commission from that sale. Most shopping sites provide affiliate programs & they pay you 4% to 15% for each & every sell through your promotion. This is pretty safe because Amazon, Flipkart are all reliable websites.

Freelancing

For doing freelance work you need a skill something like graphic design, photo editing, writing, online promotion, web design, coding, singing, advising, creating videos, photography, image editing etc. You can also sign up for a few online courses on any of these things you’ve been wanting to learn and master the skill to monetize it. The best part about freelancing is its at your own terms and time and you can do it whenever you’re free. But You need to be patient to find a client, after that you can pretty much build a network. Once your work is out there it just needs publicity. Use social media to promote your work and people will come to you.

Blogging

Yes, this is one is a tricky one because everyone is doing it now. There are tons of food bloggers, lifestyle bloggers, fashion bloggers and what not. But if you are someone who enjoys writing, start it as a hobby and if it becomes big you can monetize it in different ways.

Blogging is picking up in India, and once you become a full-time blogger you can earn a considerate amount every month. But like I said blogging requires a lot of time and effort. Your blog will not start earning money immediately it will take more than a year of work before you start receiving any earnings. So if you’re committed to it you can go for this or you can just do it as a hobby.  

To start a blog:

Option 1: You can either use websites like WordPress or Tumblr to set up a free blog.

Option 2. Create a self-hosted blog.

Since the 1st option is free you are limited to using tools provided by the portals, but the second one needs an investment of Rs.3000-Rs.5000 a year. However, this comes with the advantage of customizing the blog according to your needs and wants.

Mystery Shopper:

You probably mustn’t have heard of this before, but it’s actually a thing. As a mystery shopper, you have to ascertain the quality of a service and product by acting as a regular customer and then give a detailed analysis of it to the concerned brand/company.  Here’s how the chain works- A brand approaches a mystery shopping company or a marketing agency who further hires freelance mystery shoppers to get the required statistics/information/detailed analysis needed. In return, you get compensated with cash and free products and services.

Red Quanta is one such popular mystery shopping agency in India that you can register with. Basic qualifications to be a mystery shopper street-smartness to get the information & proofs without being identified as a mystery shopper, confidence, and clarity of thought to write down the points of observation in the report. Usually applying online for being a mystery shopper might not help, you must contact the relevant person (POC) on call or email to get the job allotted to you instantly. Also with this job make sure you’re applying to a legitimate company because in the US there have been a couple of mystery shopper scams where shoppers haven’t been paid for their job.

Sell your clothes:

If you buy clothes you don’t wear, or have too many clothes, you can sell your own clothes online and make money. See how this works at: Etashee: A platform to sell your wadrobe!

Buy and Sell Domain:

This is a funny and unusual thing. So just how you rent things from houses to clothes you can rent a blog or website too. If your blog or website has lots of followers, sell it to someone who doesn’t have a blog or website. They can use your blog/website for a while and you can charge them a fee to sell their products. 

Now that you have a list of ideas to pick from, select one that you like the most and start earning.
