ways to make money online in india

It’s a human tendency to earn some money to make their life more peaceful and wealthy, but making money has been a daunting task.

We can’t get money easily. To earn money from any source, you must give your best shot to make something out of your work.

With the growth of digitalisation, we saw the growth of businesses in the online world. Herein, the opportunities of making money online also grown.

Have you ever thought of “how to earn money online” Or “How to make money online especially in India.” Since it has become a spreading business across the western countries. What about Indians who want to make money online?

I know that many of you might have heard stories of many online earners who are making their living out of their online ventures.

And I even trust and believe that most of the people do earn money online.

But the question is – how do they make money online?

I’m an Indian, so more concerned about the Indians.

Being an Indian, you might have searched sometimes- “how to make money online in India?”

Now, all people who are having these queries, so I will try to give a good answer to their questions in this blog post.

Let’s go into the topic:

Making money online is not a big deal these days, but you have to find the best and trusted ways to earn enough money. Each and every way won’t give you desired results.

I know that day by day you may hear lots and lots of stories that some people are earning quickly from the internet, and they are making millions of dollars, etc.

By hearing these things, some people are becoming victims of Spam sites. They are simply losing money and hope.

In real life you can find many examples for such spamming, let me give you one example:

“Each and every day you can find a commercial column in your newspaper where you can find “earn money from your home” opportunities. And also you may find these making money online email in your inbox and through some ads etc.

Now, whenever people see these kinds of news they just remember one thing, that they can easily make money online like the stories which they heard about earlier.

And people tends to contact them to make quick money. Here comes the shock while they kindly say – you need to deposit some “x” amount of money and then we will give you the work and after completing them you can get your payment.

However, you are eager to earn money online so you will only start paying the down payment, but most of the times you will not get money from these kinds of approaches because I have seen many of them who are losing money for problems of this sort.

In my example: One of my friends paid 5000 as a deposit through an outsourcing office by seeing an ad in the local newspaper and also by seeing their official website and other sponsored posts about that company.

And he took some projects and worked for nights and submitted that, and he even took images of all the copies he is sending them.

Then, after a week that outsourcing company said, your work has mistakes, and they showed that errors, and it’s a total mismatch of what he submitted and what they are showing.

He showed the images, but the company said they couldn’t do anything. Similarly, there are lots of examples you can find in your surroundings as well.

Before joining this kind of programs just give some amount of time to your brain to think, if at all there is an opportunity to earn money quickly from home like what the ads says. Why others won’t use this method.

First of all, if you think you can earn money handsomely like 1 lakh per month just by working two hours a day by those online projects.

“Why will all the others choose another platform to work hard and get some money?”

So, don’t just fall into those traps and give your money. And this is the way where a lot of people lose faith in online earning, some people also try various others ways by searching on google.

In google, you can find millions of articles on this particular topic, and I do accept that some articles are the legitimate article, but most of the articles are just sponsoring articles and some spam sites where many people fall into the trap.

Now, if you want to earn money online then this post will be helpful for you in many ways, firstly I am reminding one thing.

“Making money online doesn’t happen in overnight, or it’s not the quick way to be the billionaire.”

But, if you are having some luck then you may say that I can’t guarantee it. In the online world, hard work pays off.

There are legitimate ways to make money online, but the frustrating problem for that is the real and actual ways to make money is not the “get rich over night or get rich in short time” schemes.

Now, here I am saying 10 Amazing ways to make money online, there are much more online jobs where you can work from home.

I am mainly focusing on India, but these methods can also be applied to any other countries in the world who wants to earn money online.
