2. Earn Money with Blogging
I have been making money with blogging for the last 10 years. I have made more than 2 million dollars with blogging.
But I was very confused when I started my blogging career.
I had absolutely zero ideas for blogging when I started in 2010. I worked very hard but made no money with blogging for almost one year.
But I never gave up! I researched topics on Google like ‘how to create a blog,’ ‘how to write on your blog,’ and ‘how to promote your blog.’
I learned a lot of things about blogging for almost one year.
And things started in my favor after one year. I made my first $100 (from Google AdSense) from blogging in 2011. Then there was no looking back. Today, I make almost $25,000 (Rs 15 Lacs+) every month from blogging.

There are two ways to sell anything online.
The first way is to create your website and sell your products from your website. Second is, you can become a seller on any well-known shopping portal like Amazon, Flipkart, eBay, Snapdeal, etc.
The second option is much better to get existing customers of these popular portals.
Now you must be thinking, what can I sell when I don’t own any product?
I have seen many Amazon and Flipkart sellers who don’t have any product of their own, but still, they are selling a number of products on Amazon, Flipkart, and many other shopping sites.
You can roam around your city & check for the best products you can sell on these online shopping sites. You can find wholesalers and distributors who can sell you these products at highly discounted rates. You can even import cheap products from other countries.
You can list these products on Amazon, eBay, etc., and make money by selling them at double to triple the original cost.
But there is a lot of competition. So you need to make a balance between your price and profit margin.
11. Domain Trader
Domain trading is another high-profit business you can start online. But here, you require some investment for buying the domains.’
You must be an expert, or at least you should get detailed knowledge about domain trading before you buy-sell domains.
You can buy excellent domains from GoDaddy or another domain registrar for less than $10 & sell them in the future to the companies for hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
Your skill here is to identify the best domains which are not registered yet but in the future, these domains will have high demand
When needy companies find that domain is available to you, they contact you for the deal. Now you need to set the price according to the demand. You can even these domains on the GoDaddy auction so that you can fetch your desired price.
12. Website flipping
Like domain trading, website flipping is also a hot business to earn money online. Here you don’t deal with domains but the websites.
You have to create a website and work on it for a minimum of 3-4 months So that this website starts earning some profits.
After making a regular income for 2-3 months, you can put that site on auction on Flippa or EmpireFlippers, or even other marketplaces. There are buyers who are willing to pay 20-30 times the price of your average monthly earning from your website.
Many experienced people purchase such websites from Flippa or other marketplaces because they have experience scaling such websites.

14. Stock & Forex Trading
Stock trading & forex trading is a very lucrative way to make money for those with a good idea of the share market.
Several free or paid courses are available on YouTube to train you for online trading. But be careful before buying any course because there are so-called experts who have not made any money, but they claim to be a guru.
