Here are ten best work from home jobs in India.

1. Blogging (The best IMO)

Blogging is one of the best ways to earn money online, working from home.

I’ve been a blogger myself for the last couple of years and earn Rs. 1 Lakh+ every month with this blog.

All I’m doing, is write about things I know, things that others would find interesting, things that I’m passionate about on my blog.

If there is anything that interests you, like gardening, computers, or books then start a blog about it. It only costs a few hundred rupees to start a blog – but the earning potential is limitless.

You can make money as a blogger from Google Adsense or as an affiliate marketer for Amazon, Clickbank, etc. It’s an easy way to make money, but you will need to be patient as you won’t make much in the first 6 to 12 months of starting the blog.

I have a full step-by-step process on how you can easily start a blog and ways to make money from it. Use it.

YouTube has India by storm. Ever since the lockdown, many people sitting at their home have taken to YouTube to start a career.

Starting a YouTube channel is easy. Just go here and create your new channel. Here is a video of mine, where I show how to start a new YouTube channel.

If you have a good personality or great content, YouTube is a good career choice. Great content can mean different things to different people. It could be fun videos, educational videos, travel videos, cooking videos etc.

Whatever it is that you are passionate about and can present nicely, go for it. There is no investment required, you can start your channel for free.

You can earn money from advertisement, product endorsement etc but quality and consistency of your videos is a must. In order to start earning from advertisements on your videos, you need to have 4,000 hours of overall watch time on your channel within the past 12 months and have at least 1,000 subscribers.

Most Indians know at least 3 or 4 languages, including English, and this opens up several opportunities for them.
