How to make money online?

As the year starts, we all have new energy and motivation to start working towards our goals. Many start their careers with multinational jobs, but not every one of them is lucky enough to land a high-paying job.

But to make things much easier to understand, a small shopkeeper makes anywhere from 1000 INR to 2000 INR per day, and that too with the limited market size. While you have access to the global market via the internet, you can make anywhere from 1000 INR to 5000 INR per day.

It will just require your motivation, and consistency to achieve the same. Many new online workers give up just before they start earning. The only way is to trust yourself and work consistently until you see results.

Most of the jobs in the world are now becoming contractual. I had received calls from several big companies for Digital Marketing, but all of them were on a contractual basis. So, can you imagine, how the future of jobs will look like? Yes, there will be contractual jobs, and very few permanent ones, therefore, it is better to start looking towards ways by which you can earn more via the online community.

1. Become a virtual assistant
If you have a knack for organizing and planning, becoming a virtual assistant is a great way to make extra cash online. A virtual assistant job involves doing various tasks like managing social media pages, replying to emails, and taking phone calls on behalf of a business.

With the number of freelancers increasing, virtual assistants are seeing a sharp increase in demand for their services. You can get started by applying to jobs on job boards, or can directly connect with companies, by sending them a mail. For Example, you can search for "Restaurants in California", and then collect all email ids, that you see on the websites that are listed on Google. Virtual Assistants make around $20 per hour on average.

You can charge for work like maintaining a client database, sending routine emails to clients, or even attending calls for your client. This is an easy way to earn in dollars while you are in some other country, where your currency is less strong than a dollar, because of which you will be able to make more money.

The only downside is that you may have to adjust timings as per your client's needs, hence you might end up working night shifts from your home.

2. Do research online
Are you good at using Search Engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc? If so, there are plenty of opportunities for you to make money online for free.

Many big companies in different industries hire web researchers to find the most relevant and dependable sources of information for them. Then they share that information with their clients to help them make informed business decisions. You can apply to work on their tasks - all you need is a computer and internet access.

To apply for researcher jobs, log in to your favorite job board and search for researcher jobs or you can also go to popular company websites and send them your resume directly. 

3. Transcribe audio and video files
Though artificial intelligence is emerging as a tool to help with speech-to-text transcription, it's far from perfect. Therefore, many companies rely on transcriptionists to turn audio from videos and speech files into accurate text.

To succeed as a transcriber, you will want to strengthen your typing skills. Your work needs to be error-free and easy for clients to comprehend. Start practicing by transcribing short audio files so you are ready to apply for jobs with transcription companies.

4. Become an online travel agent
Do you know where to find the best flight deals and vacation packages? Consider working from home as a Virtual Travel Agent. 

Travel agents get paid to help people plan vacations and personal travels. As the logistics (connecting flights, accommodations, sight-seeing tours, etc) can be overwhelming, many individuals rely on travel agents to make their trips easier.

You don't need any special certification to become an online travel agent. What you need are research and organization skills to plan a smooth trip for your clients in the budget they mention. For assistance, you can partner with different companies to get discounts to offer your clients.

5. Create a blog
If you are good at writing and feel that you are passionate about a particular industry, then you can create a blog and put advertisements on the same.

You will just have to provide information about the topic that you are interested in and that you know everything about. There are people around the world, who want advice, ideas, and information on every topic that exists.

Once you have built some followers, you can see your revenue increase daily, as you will receive more views on your ads. For Example, you can even make 5000 INR per day, which amounts to around 1,50,000 INR per month. This is not a small amount, and this too is a passive income, where you have written content and now people are coming to your website and hence you are making money.

This is like having your real-estate property online, which you can use to show advertisements, and companies will pay you for the same.

6. Sell photos online
If you are passionate about photography, and you have lots of photos at your disposal, consider selling them to stock agencies to earn some money. 

You will receive a commission every time someone downloads one of your photographs - either a fixed amount or a percentage as determined by the stock image website.

If you build a nice collection around a particular theme, you can earn a good amount of money from it. And the best part is every image you upload can be sold again and again, though some websites might require you to make the photos exclusive to their platform.

7. Trade crypto tokens
There are several cryptocurrencies, that you can purchase, and sell for a profit. Although investing in cryptocurrencies is supposed as risky, one should understand that great fortunes are made by taking great risks. So, you can buy some crypto tokens at night, and sell some for profit in the morning.

8. Write an ebook
If you are good at writing, and also are passionate about it, write an ebook about yourself, and then sell it on amazon. You will for sure receive good passive income if your book became famous, as you will receive a royalty for every book sold.

Conclusion
There are several ways by which you can make money online, it's just that you will have to figure out one for yourself, what you are good at, and then you are good to start selling it.
