While thinking of content writing may not be a traditional career choice for many Indians, it is actually quite easy to find a website or blog that is in need of content writers. Content writers can be paid per word, per article, or in form of monthly salaries.

While most big companies and websites looking for experienced writers to be hired full-time, you can easily make some money by writing part-time for a newer or smaller blog. Writing is a great way to make some money on the side.


There are many new websites like freelancer out there that allow you to take up freelance projects from clients all over the world. These freelance websites not only allow you to earn some extra cash every month but also allow you to take up as much work as you can handle.

You can freelance any of your professional skills, ranging from writing, photography, editing, ghostwriting, resume creation, graphic design etc, to earn money through projects. These freelance websites may require you to set up a PayPal account since a lot of clients prefer to pay through PayPal.

Online betting or fantasy sports

Online betting or fantasy sports are a great way of making some extra money online, while also enjoying your favourite sports. For example, a lot of people love betting on the outcome of their favourites sports matches on betting sites like 1xBet.

Fantasy sports are also an option for the Indian audience now. With apps like Dream11 and many more real-money gaming apps, regular people can enjoy a form of entertainment that also pay you to win.

Online tutoring

With more and more people switching to the online world to learn new skills, there is a lot of demand for online tutors or pre-made online courses. On websites such as Udemy, you can create a course regarding a skill you may wish to teach others.
