Best ways to earn money online

     Whether you are bored of what you are doing or You are a newbie with tons of enthusiasm to earn from online; this is a great place for you. Earning money online is not an easy task. You’ll start, do your best, frustrate and again doing it; still not getting the good result. And then you’ll realize ‘what your work worth’.

First of all I would like to make some requests before mentioning the best ways:-
1. Don’t buy/pay any online course/material/automated money making sites/digital marketing sites. You may seem to get money up to 1 to 2 years. Sooner or later you’ll get struck and can’t make money further in a long term view.
2. Don’t trust people who are claiming that earning lots of money online. It may be the best way for them, but not you, as a beginner. Screw those people.

Well! Some people find their niche easily and some don’t.

Don’t worry! You’ll succeed if you have a particular skill or interest. No matter who you are. You want to earn money online. That’s it. Be patience!
You’ll see good results if you go in a correct way.
Rather than checking randomly for chances. I would suggest you to stick to your interest or stick to what you are good at.
These are some platforms which may apt your skills:-


If you have interest/skill on any of the above, go through these list of micro stock websites which give you commission if someone buy your stuff. Anyway you may have to submit your work samples and get qualified to be a contributor.
If you become a contributor, your images may not recognition at first. Add the tags which are related to your work. For Example: If you upload flowers image, the tags might be flowers, nature, fresh etc… But the tags should not like tree, plant, surroundings etc…
If you add unnecessary tags, sooner or later your account will be banned.
