Living in India one finds earning money difficult, the reason being there’s a critical pressure of career and curriculum as well.

It all depends on one’s priorities and the kind of work he/she is capable of doing, whether the choices have the positive effect on his/her living or not. I have dealt with numerous questions from youngsters regarding how to earn money in college life and have written a write up regarding the same previously yet, the same doesn’t fit in with the Indian students. So here are 9 best and proven ways for an Indian student to earn money in college life:

Many companies are providing virtual assistant jobs in different domains giving the employees the desired comfort of the home allowing you to fulfill your passion for working in the desired domain irrespective your household responsibilities.

I would say that if someone is really talented and has a way with words, then article writing is a the best way to earn good money. There is a struggle in the beginning to find a good company and prove one’s talent, but thanks to the whole world going digital, there is just so much work to be done online that there is no dearth of work for good article writers/content creators and it is easy to make a full time job churning out great articles 🙂 It is my preferred method out of all. But then again, I agree that someone with not-such-great-writing-talent would want other options and in that case, PTC/ Online Surveys/ Online Captcha solving are great options too!

The biggest advice I can give is to pick a small niche, set up a site and start experimenting. Make mistakes and learn from them. That’s the only way you are going to succeed. Of course, have realistic expectations. It took me more than 1-2 years to start making decent money. But the beauty of it is that once you make that first dollar, you know it works and at that point it just becomes a matter of scaling it up, working harder and smarter to scale up your business.

One of the most commonly explained and followed way, but usually never make properly comprehensive to the reader. When we talk about blogging, it’s acquiring a domain and writing on a specific niche. If you can pen down your thoughts in a specific genre, this is your thing and advertisements like Google AdSense can be a good way of earning money through blogging whilst if you are just a new registration with nil followers and viewers, this will bring no help. In India, most of the people make a mistake by considering writing articles, after going through different website contents regarding that topic as blogging. It indeed takes hard work and is also time-consuming for anyone to take reference from far-famed websites, giving a new explanation to the points they explained, and after all this, awaiting AdSense approval. This usually doesn’t work well and declined by Google, which makes the writer quit sooner than one can think. To have your content be treated as a quality source of information by Google, one needs to maintain ingenuity. There are many things in India which are not discussed by other bloggers, one can write over those issues using a personalized point of view and research in college. Talking about current issues, genuine problems of student life, a specialized research topic, and what not can be written about. When I speak about blogging, which I have myself done; I talk about people who have something unique and veritable to write about. There is a way of expressing, wielding a phrase, and making choice of the topic which will interest the reader. It requires patience to generate followers and viewers.
Sure, there are some options like blogging that can make you a full time living but it takes a lot of hard work and dedication. But the majority of these methods, like surveys, reviewing, money making apps and so on, are not going to help you quite your day job. They are great for earning a little side cash in your free time. There is no need for me to hype things up and tell you otherwise.

Blogging is something that requires patience, persistence and discipline. It may mean writing everyday for over a year before you really start to see any money from it. There are exceptions to the rule, but from my dealings with other bloggers, it seems to be pretty common to spend one or even two years building your blog, your brand and your authority, before making any serious amount of money.
My name is Amr and I’ve been trying to earn money through online jobs for ages and I haven’t made anything that actually counts. I was just wondering if you can help me find a job? like recommending a wesbsite that actually pays where I’m living? Coz most of those websites don’t have much work here. I’m living in Egypt so I’m a native Arabic speaker and my English isn’t too bad. I’m still studying so I don’t have much experience in a real life job except for working as a call center agent for Vodafone Ireland. If you can help find any job that would be available in my country no matter how hard it is or even if it requires some kind of training. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make some extra money. Appreciate your help and sorry for the long comment.
I’ve been doing surveys now for about 18 months, but when i first started i, just like yourself, carried out a lot of research about all the different survey sites and slowly but surely i discovered the best ones to join and now i’m receiving quite a good monthly income from them, but after saying that i am a member of a large number of survey companies and some days i receive that many emails that sometimes i find it hard to keep up with them all, but it is worth it as it’s started to pay off. I’ll not mention all the survey companies i’m with because there’s far too many, but some of the better one’s are Global Test Market, I-Say, Toluna, Mintvine, Your Word, My Survey, Swagbucks, etc, etc. What i do is i keep trying new ones all the time and then i keep the good ones and get rid of the not so good.

Thanks for the kind words, Duby. Changing IP may work here and there, but most companies will catch up. Besides, I personally don’t think it’s right to do that. After all, the companies who spend money to conduct the surveys are trying to get feedback from people in certain places, so if I live somewhere else outside of their targeted area, my feedback isn’t going to help them. In fact it will dilute the feedback from actual targeted residents.


As a student, There are many reputable tutoring agencies online you can join to find clients that need tutoring in subjects you are particularly knowledgeable. These agencies will let you apply to become an online tutor and connect you with the students or clients that need help in your area or areas of expertise. You can do this work part-time, making some nice extra money to pay bills.
