Online is a very big ocean. Here you can earn a lot. But you have to select first in which area you want to work.

Before stepping on the online earning stair you should ask yourself the following questions:

  • What are your strong areas
  • What is your interest
  • Are you planning for full-time activity
  • Select your way

What are Your Strong Areas:

Everyone has some strong areas as well as weak areas. If you work on your strong areas it will help you to succeed early.
So, find out the strong areas are more important than any other step.
Example: When you are strong in the creative areas, you can work as a graphic designer, logo designer, or content writer. If you are strong in marketing areas, you can work as a digital marketer. 

What is your interest:

If you work in your interest areas, your work will be very easy for you. You can do more work and it is the key to success in life.
But when your work and interest don’t match, you can’t do much work. You will feel that the work you are doing is hard for you.
So, do those work where you are interested.

Are you planning for full-time activity:

Set the goal that you want. If you are a working person and want to earn some money online, that will be one type of planning. When you are a student and want to earn money online, that is another plan, and when you are looking for full-time earning online, it is also a different plan.
So, before stepping first, set your target and plan.    

Select Your Way:

When you have already found out your strong areas, interest and make a plan and target, now time to select the steps. You have three different main branches and all the main branches have many sub-branches. The three main branches are as follows:

  • You can sell products or services online,
  • can do freelancing, and
  • can build your own blog and earn money from ads and affiliate programs.

The above 3 points are 3 different ways and its’ planning and execution also different. So, select your step or way first. 

Sell Products or Services Online:

Online selling is a big branch. Here you can do a lot. You can sell your own products or services in the marketplace like Amazon, Daraz, or Sheba XYZ. If you sell your products or services in the market place you don’t need any website. You have to open an account as a merchant at the said marketplace. Upload the pictures of which products or services you want to sell and give information about your products and services.
If you want to do affiliate sell, you need your own website. Now apply for affiliation. There are many affiliate programs offered. Amazon, eBay, ShareASale, and Market Health are the most popular affiliate program offers.
For affiliation, you also have to open an account at the site that is offering an affiliation program. When your account has been activated you will get a link code. This link code has to be set on your website. That’s it, your affiliation is completed.
The only affiliation will not bring you traffic/customers. You need SEO for getting more traffic or customers.
You can develop an e-commerce site for selling your own products. It is one of the easy ways to start earning online.
Steps to set up an e-commerce site:

  • Products sourcing
  • Develop an e-commerce site
  • Do SEO for your e-commerce site (at least 2/3 keywords should be top on the Google)
  • Apply for AdSense (If you have some traffic you can earn revenue from AdSense.)
  • You can make affiliation with similar products for your e-commerce site. This will help you to earn revenue also.
