To start a blog, you have to choose a topic on which you want to write. Some of the popular topics include:

I would highly recommend choosing a niche in which you are more interested. Otherwise, you would go out of content ideas and to start blogging, it is very much essential to get different kinds of content ideas.
When you have an interest in any topic, it becomes a lot easier to find content ideas. So, choose only those topics that are related to your field.
Later, you can also do affiliate marketing in blogging and it is one of the best ways to make money online today. People are making over $1000 per month in affiliate marketing.
Affiliate marketing highly depends on what product you have chosen. In this field, copywriting skill is highly essential to convert your website visitors into customers.

Amazon FBA is one of the most popular ways to earn money online. It stands for “Fulfillment By Amazon” to sell your products on Amazon.
Today, anyone can sell their products on Amazon, it doesn’t matter you’re selling products purchased by wholesale or it is made by you only. You can sell whatever you want.
The process is like when you send any product to Amazon, they store in their warehouse. Whenever someone buys any product they handle everything by themselves, you don’t need to worry about anything.

Social Media Marketing is one of the fastest-growing services in this digital world.
There are a lot of Instagram and Facebook marketers making money from it. You can also do freelancing by being a social media manager.
If you love to spend time on social media platforms and love to connect with people, then it’s for you. You can approach people like influencers or small companies to manage their social media accounts.
Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube are some most popular platforms where people are doing marketing.
The average salary for a social media marketer is around $48/hour but it totally depends on the service quality.
How to get started?
You can learn social media marketing for free from the internet like YouTube or do some paid online courses.
There are a lot of excellent online courses available on Udemy, SkillShare, from where you can learn social media marketing.
Just go, check the rating and reviews and purchase anyone, whichever suits you the best.
Once you achieve a basic level of confidence, you can approach people around your locality and surroundings.
I highly suggest you target local businesses like restaurants, hotels, gyms, etc because these people can easily be converted as compared to those you don’t know.
So, start locally and then scale it later.
4. Sell Online Courses

Some of the very popular YouTubers like PewdiePie, SuperWoman are making close to around $3-4 million dollars per month.
If you are planning to start a YouTube channel just for the sake of money. Then please don’t do.
YouTube requires so much of hard work and patience. You can’t expect 10,000 subscribers in a day.
But if there is hard work, there is a way.
Remember, to choose a niche in which you have an interest otherwise, you become fed-up with the content that doesn’t make sense to you.
6. Sell your Designs Online

If you are a professional in tools like PhotoShop, Canva, Illustrator, you can sell your designs on these platforms.

I suggest you start by selling at a minimum price and then increasing your price according to the customer’s feedback.

Once you gained some skill in Facebook Ads, you can approach people.
The best way is to make your profile on different social media platforms, and set-up a portfolio.
For e.g. you can make a Facebook page where you can mention all the details like your goals, achievements, certificates, testimonials, etc.
Whenever somebody visits your page, they can see all of the things you have mentioned on your page.
In this way, you can start providing services.
