4. Data Entry:

One of the easiest services that you can provide on different freelance sites is data entry. You just need to have knowledge of Microsoft Excel, Data collection, data mining, web research etc. 

5. Digital Marketing:

Digital Marketing is growing exponentially day by day. So, the requirement for digital marketing services is very high. 

But you have to be knowledgeable in this field before you provide any services.

The subcategories of Digital Marketing are

And many more.

So, this was the one single category that is freelancing. In this category, you can do thousands of different things, and you can make money online as part of jobs at home. You don’t need to go anywhere. This work is highly flexible.

Client Business or, Running an Agency:

This is also a kind of freelancing, but the only difference is you are not going to provide service on freelance websites. You have to find clients and then works for them.

The advantage of client business is you can charge premium amounts from clients. 

And also, you have to work as professionals.

You can provide digital marketing services that are listed above. Though for your convenience, I am elaborating a little bit.

  • Search Engine Optimization: You can offer complete SEO for the client’s website and charge at least $500 to $1500 as monthly recurring.
  • Landing Page & Sales Funnel Creation: People are willing to pay hell lots of money for sales funnels.
  • Paid Marketing: You can offer paid advertising such as Google Ads, Bing Ads, Facebook Ads, Instagram Ads, etc.
  • Email Marketing
  • Website Designing
  • WordPress Site Building
  • Sales copywriting
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Social Media Advertising

But the question is from where you can find clients who can pay you premium amounts. B2B or B2C models.

Other than that, you can find clients from LinkedIn, Facebook Groups. These two are the gold mines. Just you have to have the knowledge of how to find clients.

Also, you can run Facebook Ads, Google Ads or anything else regarding your services to find clients.

So there was all about working for others remotely using a freelance website or by finding clients.

Online Business:

Now I will talk about building your own business. You don’t need to work for others. You are working for yourself.

Building an online business is way cheaper than an offline business.

NOTE: It is not like being a millionaire in one day. Also, it is not for those who have zero money to invest. This is only for serious people who want to work as professionals. You need to invest money. But I can assure you that you can start with the lowest possible amount, such as $50 only.

1. Start a Blog:

Starting a blog or a website is the most straightforward business that you can do by sitting at your home. The earning potential from blogging is enormous. You can make lots of money through your blog.

You just need to have a knowledge of your specific niche and what are the monetization options available on that niche. You can refer to this article, Most Profitable Blogging Niches, after finishing this article.

Also, I have discussed comprehensively how to start a blog in 2021. You can read that article also.

Now coming back to the point, what you need to start your blogging business.

It is simple; you just need two things first domain and second hosting. The price of a .com domain is around $10, and the price of hosting is around $40 for one year. You can get a free domain if you follow the below steps. So, you just need $40.

NOTE: To build an empire, you need a strong foundation like that hosting is the foundational block of your business. So, don’t be cheap on spending money on a hosting service.

Don’t buy any cheap hosting service; otherwise, your website speed will be extremely poor. And your business will completely destroy at starting period.

I always recommend starting with a good affordable hosting service provider. 

Hostinger is one of the most excellent platforms from where you can get a hosting service and a FREE domain for one year. Also, you can host unlimited websites.

So, if you are serious about blogging, then first buy hosting and follow the article on how to start a blog in 2021. On that article, I have described how to set up WordPress and lot more thing that is necessary to start your blog.

2. Start an eCommerce Website or Store:

As the demand for online buyers is increasing day by day exponentially, the eCommerce business has a very bright future.

If you don’t know what is eCommerce website the best example is Amazon. Amazon is an eCommerce website where people order products and get the products by home delivery.

Though the competition is a little bit high in this case as compared to blogging because you have to compete with big websites such as Amazon, eBay, etc.

The better option is to be specific and choose a micro-niche, such as a massage chair, Dishwasher, Washing Machine or anything else. And become the best website in that niche.

What do you need to start your eCommerce business?

Here you have three options.

i. Build your own website: similar to setting up a blog in the previous point. Buy a domain and hosting and build your own eCommerce site.

Here also, I recommend going for Hostinger.

Apart from that, you have to care about the packaging of the product and the delivery.

Also, you need a little bit of high investments to start as compared to blogging. Because you need to have a product (which you will purchase, then packaging, then delivery, etc.)

ii. Shopify Store: If you don’t want to take all the heavy-lifting of creating a brand new website, then you can create an account on Shopify and open your own digital store.

To be honest, creating a Shopify store is a bit easier than creating a brand new website. However, it’s entirely your choice.

Here also you have to care about packaging and delivery and the investment is high. 

iii. Amazon FBA: This is a quiet bit similar, but we can’t say eCommerce though I have included it because the concept is the same.

First, you have to purchase product and export to Amazon FBA. Then list your product on Amazon. When you get orders, Amazon will take care of packaging and delivery. You don’t need to bother about that.

These are the three methods of doing an eCommerce business. Here you need a little bit high investment, so if you are a complete beginner, then I will not suggest this. The better option is going for blogging.

But again, it’s ultimately your decision. My duty is to tell ways of making money online at home for beginners.

3. Start YouTube Channel:

The demand for video content is incredibly high in 2021, and it is increasing rapidly. 

If you have not started a YouTube channel, then you are losing a great opportunity.

You need to transform yourself from content consumer to content producer. And magic will be going to happen with you.

A fantastic option is starting a blog and also starting a YouTube channel simultaneously because both require small investments.

You don’t need to buy expensive cameras, set up a studio, etc.

The most important thing that you need to start is a good mic. 

If your mic is not good, you are not audible clearly in your video; then you can’t grow on YouTube.

First, create some images or whiteboard animation videos. After that, when you get some success, then you can purchase a good camera.

Though if you have money, then you need to have three things to start.

The first is a good mic, the second is a camera, and the third is a tripod to hold the camera.

Also, you have to have knowledge of video editing, not advance but basic knowledge such as cutting & joining of videos.

I use Wondershare Filmora software to edit my videos. This is super simple to use. You can learn it in one day. Yes, in one day only. 

That’s it; you are ready to start your YouTube channel.

NOTE: YouTube has a new policy you need to have 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of watch time to monetize your channel. So, you have to wait for at least six months and continuously upload videos.

PRO TIP 1: The best option is to become a tech or software reviewer and monetize your channel using affiliate marketing. You don’t have to wait for six months. Once you get visitors, you can start earning money. 

PRO TIP 2: You can use the YouTube traffic to your blog or eCommerce store or anywhere and earn money through other monetization options such as affiliate marketing or selling your own product.

4. Sell Your Own Digital Product (Such as courses, software, games, apps):

Can you teach anything? If you have a good knowledge of any field or have a skill them one of the best options is creating a course and selling it.

I know creating software, apps, or games is not an easy task. I also don’t know how to create software, apps or games. 

But creating a course is not that much hard. 

What do you need to create a course?

First, you have to have a skill, second knowledge of creating videos. 

But after creating videos, where will you upload them? Is it YouTube?

No, you should not upload your entire course on YouTube. If you do that, then how can you sell it.

People can watch it for free.

Many people will say I will upload the video on YouTube and “Unlist” them so that people can access the video using an URL only.

But this is not the right way because let says one person purchase your course and he or she shares all the URL. You don’t have control over it.

So, the best solution is to use a great platform that is built for a specific course.

No, I am not talking about Udemy or, Skillshare.

Because there you have to pay a lot of money to Udemy or, Skillshare when someone purchases your course and you don’t have complete control over it.

What is the best solution?

The best solution is, Teachable. 

Here you can build your membership site quickly. And upload course.

Benefits of Online Business over Offline Business or Jobs

Before I mention all of the ways of earning money, I want to discuss what are the incredible benefits of making money online.

1. Zero or, Lowest possible investment:

One of the most significant advantages is you can start with zero or minimal investment in the case of online businesses.

But any offline business needs enormous investment. 

2. Freedom of Time:

Many of us don’t like 9 to 5 working hours. I am also in the same category.

If you start your online business, then you are the boss. You are not an employee. You have complete freedom of when you want to work and when you want to take a rest.

There is complete freedom of choosing the working hours.

3. Flexible Working Location:

You can work from home, or you can work from anywhere. What do you need to do your online business? Just one laptop, internet connection, and that’s it.

Also, you can handle your work while on a trip.

You have complete freedom of your time, location.

4. Work Globally:

Suppose you have opened a shop, then you can do your business in that specific location. There is no scope for scalability.

But in the case of online business, you can spread your business globally, and the opportunity of scalability is massive.

Final Words:

So, this was all about how you can make money online even if you are a beginner.

I hope that you have got some valuable insight.
