How to make money online from home peacefully?
‘How to make money online from home’, this has been my search on Google since a few months now. To be exact, since coronavirus pandemic hit. This deadly pandemic has disturbed our livelihoods to an extent that we all are doing things we never would have imagined we would or could do.
Making money online has been in trend since a few years, but because of so many people loosing jobs and economy going down, this seems like a ray of hope in the current situation.
You must be thinking there are a million articles that you’ve read but none of them seems to help. But let me tell you,these are from my own personal experiences and I’m able to actually make money online from them just by sitting at home.So here it goes
1.Quora partner program
Quora partner program has been my favorite way of making money online from home till now. And if you like to ask questions, you’re in the right place. I know people who are earning like $3000 a month just by asking questions. Let me tell you how it works,
First of all you must have a profile on Quora, obviously. Then, you need to ask a lot of questions and answers to other people’s questions as much as you can.
Let’s assume you’re done with the above mentioned things, now once Quora recognizes that you’re regular user, they will approve you for the Quora partner program.Once you’re in it, you just gotta do what you were doing earlier but this time, you’d be making cash out of it.
And depending upon the popularity of your questions and the traffic that they generate, you’ll get paid. That’s right, making money by asking questions!! Who on earth would have thought of that
Freelancing has been in making money online business since quite long now. And some of the freelancers make a six figure income just solely by freelancing. There are a number sites for this. These few are which i rely on,
This is one of most popular freelancing website and authentic too. You have to make your profile on upwork and wait for their approval. Usually they take less than 24 hours to go through the process. And I’d suggest you to make sure to put your articles or blogs or whatever you’re freelancing for in the project section. This will help you with your approval.
Here employers are looking for freelance designers. They can create a project contest, which will bring a slew of design entries straight to them, or they can seek out your services through a search box right at the top of the landing page. So if you’re into designing and stuff, make sure to try this one.
Toptal is known for it’s A- rated quality freelancers. It’s really hard to get into Toptal, but once you’re in you’re working for big clients like Airbnb, thumbtack etc. If you have what it takes to get into Toptal, go for it.
There was a time when people used to say, ‘oh you’re a blogger, how do you even pay your bills just by writing!’. People are making huge chunks of money through online blogging, just by sitting at home.You see the kind of flexibility you have once you get the hang of it. You could be travelling to another country and doing your ‘job’ at the same time.
Now I’m not saying it’s easy, not at all. But with internet at our hands every 24 hours, it’s not impossible too. These days people are searching for all sorts of content online. And if you put your keywords right and market your websites on good platforms, blogging wouldn’t seem that difficult to you.
Just remember, if you’re in blogging to make money,use a self hosting website. Do not use a site hosted by the provider because if something goes wrong, they have the authority to take down your site and all your hard work would just go away like that. Now how do you get paid for blogging,
If you have enough number of daily unique visitors and your content is original, AdSense is a great opportunity to start making money online. With every click you get on the ad on your page, you get paid.
B) Affiliate marketing
This has become more popular now because AdSense can get you a limited revenue, but affiliate marketing has massive potential. I’ve seen bloggers making six figure income from this. How does it work?
Whenever a person reading your blog sees the ad and buys something from your affiliate link, you’ll get a small commission ( which isn’t so small if you ask me haha) but obviously without any extra cost to the buyer. These comissions can go upto $100,000!! But you also need that kind of traffic for that kind of income.
C) Sponsored posts
This is something actually interesting. It’s like a review, the only catch here is you have to write only good reviews about the brand that’s sponsoring you. So in my opinion, write only about brand you yourself believe in. Because at the end of the day, if you go on bragging about something bad your blog will suffer. This is a great and a fun way to make money online if you do it the right way.
D) Display Ads
Display ads are very similar to Google Adsense except that the reader doesn’t have to click on the ad for you to make money. Think of display ads as billboards that are on your website instead of on the side of the highway. With display ads, you get paid based on the number of times your ads are viewed no matter what. For that reason, these ads will work better for you as the traffic to your website grows over time.
4) Tutoring/ Coaching
If you have a passion to teach students a subject you’re particularly interested in, you can try this. There are a number of online coaching sites that pay you by the hour. If you’re studying about a particular subject you already have the notes for, it’ll be like a revision. But this time, with each revision you’d be earning. That’s like catching two fishes with one hook! Here are some online coaching platforms to make money online,
There are many many more such sites, but these are right now the best and most authentic ones.
Influencers or Instagram models or social media figures, whatever you call them, they actually have a huge impact on the audience. An average user spends around 3 hours on social media everyday and world’s total population is 8 billion and with the coronavirus pandemic, time spent on social media has increased upto 3 times. So you can do the math.
And if you don’t have a product or a business, become an influencer yourself. You need 4 things to become an influencer,
- Content- great quality
- Smart phone
These Influencers have a huge following, so if you have an online business or a product to sell, they can help you in an unbelievable way. But obviously it all comes down to a great content, better the content, better the business. You can’t expect people to buy a useless product just because an influencer with 1 million followers is promoting it. You’ve got to have an amazing product too.
And who knows, once you get a great following, you can launch your own product and start your own business. You can become an Instagram influencer or a YouTuber. These two are the most in demand right now. YouTube has a whole lot of potential if you get a certain number of subscribers and watch hours. It all depends on you!
Internet is a broad and ever-changing platform, use it right and you’re making money online like anything by sitting at home. But nothing comes easy. As they say, good things take time. Don’t expect to get famous overnight and earn lots and lots of money online. Give it time. Give it patience. Give it preserverance.
