Writing a blog can be a great way to earn money online and can even turn into your primary source of income after a period time. One should make sure to write the blog on a topic they are passionate about.
For example, if music is your interest then it would be a good idea to write your blog on it. If cricket is your passion then write on that. Keep in mind though that you will not immediately get people’s attention to your blog. One should expect to wait a bit but once you start posting on your blog regularly traffic on your blog will go up. Once that happens then one can start earning cash through Google AdSense or Infolinks by way of advertisements on the blog. However, that depends on a number of visitors to your blog which needs to be over 1000 daily.
3) Paid Online Surveys
Another way to earn good money online is by filling out survey forms. Surveys do not take a whole lot of time to complete. Generally, survey research requires one to provide his or her opinion and feedback on products or services for companies. Surveys can also be related to academic research.
4) Tutorial videos on YouTube
If you like making videos and want to make money off of them there is no better place online than YouTube to make it happen. YouTube is the number one online video streaming website in the world. Out of the many video making categories out there, tutorial videos are among the most popular.
If you are an expert in any field or know a subject well enough to teach it then you should definitely try your hands at making tutorial videos by setting up a YouTube channel. Not only are such videos a big money-maker but by posting them on YouTube you are bound to get a good exposure. The videos can be monetized with the Google AdSense platform. However, to earn money one would have to enter into a partner program with YouTube which now available for Pakistan.
5) Google AdSense
Google AdSense can become a reliable source of income online provided one is patient as it takes a little time and effort before one can see big bucks coming in. It is a paid to click program that pays bloggers and website owners for the advertisements that they run depending on the number of clicks the advertisements generate.
Generally, if one has a blog or a website with a good volume of traffic then it is a good idea to opt for AdSense. If that is the case and you want to monetize with AdSense then you would have to apply for a Google AdSense account. Once your application is approved you can proceed to link the AdSense account with your blog. Payment starts from AdSense once a number of earnings reach $100.
6) Affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is an easy way to make money online in Pakistan. The way it works is that you make a commission when you promote someone else’s product or service to customers.
