Join the free blogging course at SeekaHost University and learn how to start blogging and then get the Blogging for profit course where I teach you how to set up blogs that earn money easily.

I would discuss some ways you can make money from blogging, and the first is to use advertising tactics. You can use the pay per click ads, and they are in the form of banners you put at the side, top or middle of your page that once a reader clicks it, you get paid. There is also the cost per impression ads, and here you are paid based on the number of readers that click on the advertisement on your page.

There are ads you can use for this; the most common one is Google AdSense. With Google AdSense you don’t need to even be in direct contact with the advertisers, the program brings up banners or advert related to your content, and once your readers click on it you get paid.

You can also sell private ads, and it’s not only working with advertising networks. If your blog starts having traffic, advertisers may come to you directly and pay for adverts, and you can also contact those advertisers yourself to make money.

Affiliate marketing is also another way to make money through your blog. And guys like Kulwant Nagi talks about how to do it at his blogging cage.


2 Learn to find expired domains and sell

find-and-sell-expired-domainsExpired domains are highly in demand and I know how this business works. Back in 2015 I met Saket Wahi and he mastered how to find expired domains. He was just 17 years old and with the expired domain hinting skills he managed to earn so much money and he even moved to United Kingdom to study in London.

Basically, the goal was to earn £100 per and that can help him save £3000 month and in 12 months it’s £36,000. The best thing was made earned more that and came to study in UK.

So, see you can do the same and I’ve started the PBN hosting business to facilitate the expired domain hosting market as thousands of people build Private Blog networks to support their SEO or client’s SEO and earn online.

Even these days Dinesh Kumar at ClickDo finds expired domains daily and sell via the Facebook group as well as provide to our customers at SeekaHost via this web page.

Get in touch with Gowdham or Aslam Saah who are both experts in web technologies and works online and earn based in India.

5 Start a Podcast

Podcasting-for-moneyThis is not easy as above unless you are the kind of person who can talk the talk and entertain people at the same time education.

If you have some expert skills this can be easier for you.

Starting a podcast and making money from a podcast is like making money from a blog. You carve out a niche, and it makes it possible to narrow out your audience.

Once you start having an audience you can then start reaching out to advertisers whose product would match your content. You can make money through sponsorships and advertisement, you can create online courses to teach something related to your content on your podcasts, and you can also ask for donations to help support your podcast.

There are thousands of people who earn by podcasting, but it takes time to build the authority. Once you are top podcaster businesses will chase you to talk about them and promote and you can charge for that.

6 Become a YouTuber

You can also make money online through YouTube if you are good with making videos and have ideas or products you want to share, then YouTube is it for you.

Earn-online-from-YouTubeYou may be wondering how you can make money from YouTube; one of the ways is to become a YouTube partner if you meet the requirements.

You need to have about 1000 subscribers to your channel and 4000 watches within the last 12 months. When you become their partner, you start making money by how many views you get on your videos.

Once you become a YouTube partner, you can connect to Google Adsense, and you will also get paid based on the number of clicks your videos also have. If you can get companies to do an advert in your videos, it will generate more income for you too.

7 Become a Graphic Designer

Graphic-DesigningIf you have a skill in graphic designing, you can make quick money from it. The first thing you need to do is to create your portfolio, and then you can get direct customers from sites like Fiverr where you get paid once you get the job done.

Best is to create a website or have graphic design services page on your blog and promote it.

If you build your blog in a manner to drive traffic you will get buyers.

Best places are UpWork, Fiverr and People Per Hour to get so many inquiries from business people who are looking for graphic designers.

We at our agency sometimes hire freelancers to keep up with our work and support us deliver to clients. So keep a look at it and become a great designer who can also do some web designs.

8 Create websites for business

This is a great way to earn from home and I did this back then when I was starting to earn online from home.

You can take some free courses to learn HTML but best to learn how to create websites on WordPress.

website-designing-for-businessThousands of people look for web designers and the keyword “web design india” can take you from looking to make money online to running your own web design agency one day.

Learn the skills or outsource to people.

Same places as UpWork, Fiverr and People Per Hour are good online sites to find clients. And there are many more online jobs sites that you can post your gigs to be visible to Indian audiences.

This is a good way to create a sustainable income online and if you can offer SEO services as I mentioned above, you can scale your business like I did for ClickDo and eventually automate the business to run by the teams.

Keep in mind that every business needs a website and there are over 400 million business in the world, and more are coming up each day. Also, the existing businesses need their websites updated and also many web services to keep their business running.

9 Selling Online Courses

Sell-Online-CoursesYou can start making money by selling courses. You can do this through Udemy and Skillshare, Udemy allows you to upload pdf files, videos, course materials in general. Udemy takes 50 per cent of your course sale if they promote it but 3 per cent if you promote it yourself.  So best is to promote it via your website or blog. And that’s why I told you to start a blog as the first step to earn online.

And if you need a channel with more reach then you can put your courses at SeekaHost University but the quality matters. We only accept digital marketing niche courses and if you are skilled in it you can do a course. But I assume if you to know digital marketing to a level to create a course you are most probably earning from the internet.

If you know the skills but looking for news ways to earn, then creating a course and selling online is a great way.

You can see guys like Sam Owens created a course that teaches people how to become a consultant and he says he has made over $20 million online. Read his website to get some ideas to become a consultant and also the readings will inspire you to start your journey as a consultant.

10 Take Online Survey

This is not my kind of work to do online but as I know there are millions of such work, I want to give you a hint.

Online-Survey-jobsAn online survey is another way to make money even though it might not necessarily make you rich you can have some extra cash with it. You can take those surveys in sites like Harris Poll Online and Opinion outpost.

You should not pay to get started and it should always be free to start online. So watch out on that as I explain ways to earn without investments. When you start making money you can invest to scale the business.

11 Freelance Writing

Freelance-WritingAnother way to make money online is through freelance writing. Where you bid for jobs, get given the job and once you deliver you get paid. You can start with Fiverr, and there is also Upwork and Freelancer.

This is one of the best ways and a method I used back then when I was starting. I wrote for businesses who are having blogs or doing online advertising.

If you can learn how to write SEO friendly content you can first rank your blogsite and get traffic and then some might buy from you.

Or else you can use that as a case study and pitch businesses and offer content writing services.

This is such a great way to earn online India as a student if you can write in English. If you are reading this so far, I assume you can write in English.

Just take the SEO friendly content writing course at SeekaHost University and learn fundamentals to write content for websites.

12 You Can Become a Virtual Assistant

Virtual-Assistant-jobVirtual assistant means you work online as an assistant to someone. You need your phone, laptop, excellent communication skills and a flexible schedule.

You can work full time or part-time depending on what you want, a virtual assistant gets paid to work remotely.

Find such roles you can do from home so you can easily do it without wasting time on travel.

13 Transcription typing services

If you are a avid listener and can type fast you can online earn money by typing pages for people who look for transcriptionists to get their videos, audios converted to words.

I use this to get my YouTube videos transcribed into words. So, I can add that to the YouTube video descriptions, so it ranks better on the YouTube search engine.

Transcription-typing-jobs-In-IndiaTranscription jobs from home is a great way to start your online career and there are people looking for it. If you look for Transcription jobs you can see many websites pop up and one reliable source is https://www.indeed.co.uk/ which offers many jobs for people.

You can apply for any of those jobs and get hired to do it.

Try to have your brand built as it makes it easier for you to get an online job. That’s why I suggested to start a blog or build a little website and have your services placed nicely.

Try to get some reviews for your services as it will help you get hired fast. Having your web presence built is one of the best ways to earn fast online in India.

People look at reviews, past work done by you and many things before hiring someone online. So, by having those factors presented via a website is great.

You can also create a free web page on the SeekaHost Directory and get some reviews there. It’s free to create and there is nothing stopping you from getting online now and offer your services to the world.

14 Sell your stuff online

To make quick money online, you can sell off items you no longer need or use. You can do that on sites like eBay, Etsy and Craigslist.

Sell-onlineOn eBay, you can get to create a free account, but that account is limited to what it can sell.

When you are planning on selling about 50 items, and above in a month, you would then need to subscribe to them. They have different kinds of subscriptions depending on your pocket and what you need.

On Etsy, just like eBay, you will need to subscribe for an amount if you plan on only selling.

And if you have a product or know how to get for cheap, Amazon is also a good place to sell online to western markets.

You can learn more about how to sell on Amazon India here.

15 Dropshipping

Dropshipping-in-IndiaYou can make extra cash online with Dropshipping business, and it costs little or no money. When dropshipping, you have to list the supplier’s product on your store so that people can have an idea of what you are selling and whatnot.

When a customer buys from your online store, you would then have to order that exact thing from your supplier, and then your supplier would ship off the item directly to your customer without getting to you.

That way, your customer receives the goods he has ordered from you. Dropshipping is a cool way to make money online because you can create as many stores online as you want and list as many products as you wish to.

In conclusion, we have discussed ten different ways you can make quick money online without having to break the bank, as long as you have the internet, you can always make extra cash on the side.
