  1. Blogging

Blogging is now a trendy idea for all especially for a self-employed or unworked women. Blogging started as an opportunity for individuals to write diary-style entries, but it has since been incorporated into websites for many businesses. Once a woman becomes able to bring enough visitors every month, earning will be starting. People actually get paid to do this and it’s a great idea and she can start a blog depending on the interest she has like food blogging, travel blogging, beauty blogging, photography blogging and child care blogging etc. Bloggers can make appreciated money a month. One of the smartest things is to get more loyal followers to integrate the blog into an app. Creating an app for a blog gives one countless opportunities, but not many bloggers do it. A prominent reason for this is lack of technical knowledge. If one can earn bit knowledge on it, all the blogs can be integrated into an app in minutes, without any coding or burning a hole in your pocket.

  1. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is an advertising performance-based marketing in which a company compensates third-party publishers to generate traffic or leads to the company’s products and services. The third-party affiliate simply searches for a product, then promotes that product and earns a piece of the profit from each sale the company makes. These days affiliate marketing is one of the most popular ways by which people make money online and it can be a passive income once established. Affiliate Marketing can fetch handsome amount of money a year.

The best thing about affiliate marketing is that one can do it at scale. A typical salesperson only sells products from one company. As an affiliate marketer, one can promote products from many different companies and earn commissions from all of them.

  1. Freelance Writing

Freelance writing is the practice of writing for money while working on one’s own and not being employed by a company or organization. Freelance writers create written text that is needed by their clients, either working from home or from a rental office space. Most freelance writers charge depending on the amount of work they will have to put into the project. However, the way they bill for the contents its average range will vary.

For example, a software company has 5 employees in a certain department. Their annual report doesn’t write itself. They need a blog to keep up with the content marketing war. The sales team sends out sales letters and brochures to prospects. The prospects want white papers, case studies. Not to mention technical papers for the actual software. Someone has to write it all and the truth is, most people and businesses don’t know how to do it. And they don’t want to learn. So, here freelance writers can make their appearance.

  1. Social Media Influencer

Social media influencing is especially beneficial for micro-influencers who haven’t yet received a lot of proposals from brands and marketers. These influencer networks match with brands that are in search of influencers fitting one’s characteristics. So, this is one of the best things to do if one wants to make money on social media and make the mark as an influencer. A social media influencer has access to a large number of audiences and can persuade others by dint of their authenticity and reach.Most influencers don’t rely on a single income stream to earn money from their blog or social media account. Instead, they combine a few approaches to make a solid living.They achieve this by maintaining an active online presence on social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and various blogs.
