The first, most accessible, and guaranteed way to make money from blogging in India is by providing paid services. You can use your skills to earn money by providing your services.
So, for example, if you are good at writing content, you can provide the paid service to other website owners or digital marketing agency owners.
Many website owners are outsourcing content writers and are ready to spend a good amount.
In fact, when I started my career 5 years ago, I used to do the same when I was writing content for other website owners to earn some extra amount and use those amounts to pay for the tools, subscriptions and hosting.
You can easily charge $6 to $7 per 1000 words article in the initial days, which anyone can easily provide this amount if you are really good at writing content.
So if in a month you can write 30 articles with 1000 words, you can easily earn 15 to 16k amount by investing 1 to 2 hours of your daily time.
Just think, if you increase the word count to 2000, you can double your amount in a month. Usually, to earn 30k monthly, people give 8 to 9 hours of their day by doing jobs.
Moreover, writing is not the only thing from which you can earn. In fact, you can also provide your other services like website designing, video editing, SEO, and many more.
Here are all the services you are providing as what you are doing for your own blog. So by working on your own blog, you can easily generate side by side income for the same thing that you are doing for yourself.
In India, earning by providing service is one of the most popular ways most bloggers make it nowadays. Moreover, I still earn by giving the service of SEO and content writing to my clients.

You can use any online medium like Skype to conduct your online webinar where you can teach them about blogging and charge some amount on behalf of that.
Similarly, you can conduct paid online workshops about your blogging tips to tell them how you earn money from blogging and what steps they can take to earn money from blogging.
However, the only drawback of making money from workshops is that this is not the most promising way to earn money for beginners. People can only pay for your workshop if you are a successful blogger.
5. Sponsored Posts
One of the easiest and most popular ways to earn money from blogs is sponsored posts.
Moreover, the best part of the sponsored post is that it gives you two benefits: money and the other is you will get a well-written post from the person.
Let me explain it more to understand how the sponsored post thing works. So in the Sponsered post, a person will approach you to link their website with yours.
So basically, they will pay you and provide you the link to mention on your blog, or in other scenarios, they will pay along with a well-written post with their website link.
So you have both options available. However, this option is only available when your website has some good authority.
Now, when you know how the sponsored post works, the next step you have to understand is the essential thing that secures your website from Google penalties.
Yes, you read it right. Google penalizes the website that takes money and gives a link to other website owners without any relevancy.
However, by following simple steps, you can diminish the chance of getting penalized by Google.
1. Whenever you give any link to another website, make sure you provide them a No-follow link. A no-follow link means it will not contribute to improving search engine rankings.
2. Do not put these sponsored links on your website for a lifetime. The best way is to make them live for 3 to 4 months and then remove or ask the person to renew them. It also helps you earn a recurring amount with a single website by giving a single link.
6. Upsell your existing customers
You must agree that selling a product to someone who already knows you and has faith in you is much easier than comprising a new customer.
If you have an existing customer paying you for something, you can upsell them by promoting the other things that can increase the value of the first thing.
I know you might find it confusing. Don’t worry, let me help you to understand with an example.
So, for example, if you have a customer who has taken your website development service for their business so, in this case, you can approach them and tell them that you can also help them with the SEO service.
Moreover, you can also give them a short discount to make the service more worthy. If your work is good and they trust you out of 100 times 90 times, they will definitely give you the project.
Pro Tips: Do not try to sell irrelevant services as if you do so, the chances of conversion are almost 0%. One of the best examples of upselling is Amazon, where they will show you the relevant products when you try to buy anything.
7. By selling courses on Udemy
In a few years earning by selling courses on Udmey and Skillshare has become popular, and the reason is simple, you have to make a quality video and upload them on the respective websites.
If your content is worthy and customers buy them, you will start getting money from these courses. The best part of creating courses is making a one-time investment to earn a recurring amount.
Above all, if you choose platforms like Udmey or skillshare, you don’t have to search any audience manually. These websites have a high volume of searches every month.
So, if your teaching skill is good and you want to generate some passive income, this is also one of the best ways to make money in 2022.
