I have heard that people who start blogging for money fails 99%. But all is not true. Why not become that 1% people who earn from blogging !

If you are focused on your niche and are confident that you can earn, then you can really earn online but you will need a clear strategy, action plan, dedication and patience.

Then main question which must be coming in your mind will be how you can earn from blogging ?

The answer is very simple, you will be selling your blog space to advertisers for money. The best advertising programs for bloggers are Google Adsense, Yahoo Bing Contextual Ads, Infolinks etc. to name a few. You can also earn money online from sponsored post, Giveaways and selling your own ad inventory.

3. Local website designing: This is one of my own experiments and may be some of you must also be doing this. I generally search for local potential customer in my local area. And you can do it too. You even don’t have to go to them. Just search about them in Google and know if they have a website or not. And if they don’t have a website, you can tell them the benefits of having a website and take website development order from them.

And if they have a website already, then analyze the website and found mistakes on it and then you can call them and tell error on their website and how you can add value to it. This one is very interesting and soon my case study will be coming on it.

4. Content Writing: This is one of the very good way of earning extra money from home. You just need an internet connection and a Laptop or Desktop. There is a very huge demand of content writers in the market. Even a big SEO company needs good writers. And very important thing, you don’t need any money to start this business.

Many women’s and men around the world are doing content writing work and earning good. This is the best work for women to earn money online apart from blogging and freelancing.

5. Affiliate Programs: Affiliate programs are also no investment thing and you can sign up to any affiliates of your choice which you can promote through your network and can start earning money from home.

7. Become Seller at eBay and Amazon: If you are very serious about earning money without a job, then I will suggest you to become seller at Amazon or eBay. They are best community and are trusted brands by millions of people.

You can buy products at cheap rate from market and discount stores and can sell them at high prices at Amazon or eBay. Recently I read a very good podcast by Pat Flynn at Smart Passive Income about how to buy stuff and selling it on Amazon (For 6-Figures a Year!) and you should also go through it.

8. Selling Photos: Apart from above methods, you can also earn by selling your own photos to different websites. So if you are a good photographer and want to earn extra cash, sell your photos for royalty/money.


Anyone can start earning extra money from home whether he/she is a student, house wife’s, business man, salaried person, pensioners etc., you just need an internet connection, a desktop or laptop and zeal of working for few hours. I must say working from home and earning extra money requires dedication and patience, so wait for results and have faith. I still remember it took me complete 5 months to get my first $10 dollars from the Internet as an affiliates and over a year to get my first $100 from Google Adsense.
