4. Sell Gigs on Fiverr
Fiverr is a site where you can sell your services like article writing, video editing, logo designing, etc. in the form of gigs.
A gig is what shows the potential buyer what you will offer in a service. For example if you are offering a article writing service, you will create a gig that shows what you will offer, how long will it take, how many words does it have, what are the prices, etc.
A gig can be priced only in multiple of five (so the name ‘Fiverr’) like $5, $10, $15 and so on. When a person opts to but your gig, he will have to submit the fee to Fiverr even before you start working. Thus there is no chance of scam.
Fiverr will charge you 20% of whatever you earn. You can request a payout with $1 in your account. Fiverr is really a great site especially for starting your freelance career.

14. Earn from Bitcoins
Bitcoins is most popular crypto currency and is very popular among immature and new investors. There are many sites to earn bitcoins and bitcoins are an investment, so their value can also increase over time.
But there’s a catch. Let me be very clear with you, the value of bitcoins fluctuates even up to 30% or more daily. According to experts, it is more like a bet than an investment. So be careful.
Bitcoins are good if you invest in them for short time. And if you are lucky you can even double your investment in a week.
You can either deposit your money in bitcoins or you can even earn bitcoins from feature points, Offer Nation and Scarlet clicks.
15. Earn money playing games
You can earn money online by playing games too. That’s a fun and easy way to have a part time income.
There are a lot of apps but I won’t recommend you searching them as most of them are scam and will not give you anything.
Mobile Premier League (MPL) is the best app to earn money. This app has huge potential but is a bit competitive too. Besides dream 11 and CrickPlay are also great option.
If you are outside India you can try Rewarded play, inbox dollars and wealth words.
16. Google AdSense
A lot of companies all around the world want to get more visitors, more sales and more profit. And the easiest way to get it quickly is paid ads.
You can provide these companies space on your site to display their ads and get paid for it.
But don’t worry you will not have to do all the complex job yourself. Google AdSense is there to help you.
You will have to create an account on AdSense and once it is approved you can embed its code in your site. After this, ads will start to show on your blog and you will start making money from it.
If your account is disapproved you can check the reason, correct it and reapply. Once you have $100 you can get your payout.
17. Make money selling EBooks
Online publication industry has grown many folds in the last decade. The main reason is that Epublication or EBooks are easy to carry, cost effective and can be bought quickly. For the writers, the cost of Ebook is very low.
If you have good knowledge in any field, or you want to share a life experience, or poetry or something, you can publish your own book.
You can use tools like Canva and MS Word to create an EBook. As a new writer you should create a few free EBooks or you can let readers read a few pages of your book for free as a separate small EBook. After that you can start creating paid ones.
EBooks can be sold on google play books, amazon and kindle. You can also sell them on your site or social media.
18. Data entry jobs
Data entry job is one of the easiest way to make money online. The reason you do not need any skill to join these sites.
In these jobs, you have to enter a data from one format to other or from one app to other. For example, converting word file to excel, converting speech to text or changing a file in English to Hindi.
These are one of the most used sources of part time income. You can find data entry jobs on sites like indeed, LinkedIn, freelancer and UpWork.
19. Start Domain trading
Domain trading is a bit risky but yet very profitable online business. With the right knowledge of the business you can make a pile of money in no time.
Domain trading means you buy domain that could have a great demand in near future. If you picked the right domain, companies or people would be willing to spend 10, 20 times the price or even more.
A domain name cast $10 to $15 and could be sold in thousands of dollars. Hotels.com, for example, was sold in $11 million. You can google it.
20. Do website trading
Website trading is a business somewhat similar and somewhat different than domain trading. In website trading you buy a domain, create a website and start creating content.
Once the website has enough content and visitors, it can be sold to someone at a high price. The price depends entirely on website and can vary depending upon no of post, visitors on site and domain authority.
Again to create a site you need both domain and hosting. I strongly recommend Hostinger (click to get free domain) and if you are short on budget, go for Redserver. I don’t recommend GoDaddy for hosting as there are lots of upsells.
Once you think you are ready you can use sites like flippa or empireflipperes.
21. Sell your services
Selling your services means you help someone with your skill and get paid for it. If you have a skill that could be helpful to anyone, you can sell it.
Some skills are sold more easily than others. Skills like content writing, web designing, app making, copywriting and logo designing are sold like hot cakes.
The best way to sell a service is ofcourse, website. But if you are a beginner consider using freelance site.
I will soon write a step by step guide to selling services soon.
22. Become a Captcha solver
If you have an extra 1 to 2 hours daily you can put some extra cash in your pocket by solving Captcha.
Thousands of big companies need to create account on millions of websites or to access various sites. The captcha restricts these companies from creating accounts.
To complete this captcha challenge they need real human and for this they pay captcha solving sites. With goods speed you can make a good income from these sites.
For every thousand captcha you solve you can earn $1 to $2. This amount is low but with good speed you can make a good income.
The plus point of these jobs is that it is very easy to complete. If you are interested you can join sites like Megatypers, Protypers and 2captcha.
23. Amazon FBA
FBA stands for fulfilled by amazon. Simply, in FBA, you sell a product to amazon and amazon ships it to people.
To be more precise, you register on FBA, Amazon stores your product in its warehouse and when someone purchase it from amazon, they will deliver it.
This way you get huge consumer base of amazon, don’t have to store, manage or ship your product but you will have to pay amazon a price for taking, storing, packing and shipping your product. But that is always a fair deal.
24. Try sponsorship program
If you have a huge audience base on your website, YouTube channel or even on social media you can use sponsorship to make money.
In sponsorship program you team up with certain companies or peoples either directly or through a website and they pay you to promote their product, services or company.
For example, if you have lots of followers on social media, say Instagram, you can charge hundreds or even thousands of dollars just for one post.
25. Make money online teaching
Teaching is seen as one of the most respectable profession. To add to it, it is also very high paid and has lot of potential.
If you have a decent knowledge in one subject or even in one topic, you can make money from it. The amount you make depends upon various factors like your subject, your audience and lot more.
You can upload your videos to YouTube or you can make it as a course on udemy (free or paid), unacademy and courser.
26. Make money selling Photos
If you are good at taking and editing photos, you can use your skill to earn money for yourself. You can sell your high quality photos and pictures on sites like Shutterstock, Esty and adobe stock.
Though the best place to sell your photos is again your site but since you are not popular (no offence) you should consider one of the sites above.
Register on these sites, preferably adobe stock, and start selling your photos. You can earn up to 60% of whatever your photos make.
27. Become a Virtual Assistant
A virtual assistance is a person who provides his services as assistance to other businesses from a remote location. File sharing and high speed internet has made it possible to work remotely.

VA jobs allow you to work on your time. You can find these jobs on upwork, freelancer or other freelance site.
