Making Money Online while being a college student, Is this really possible?
Yes it is possible 🙂
You might think,
- Is there any secret ?
- Is there any magic?
- Is there any “GURU” formula?
SO here are your Answers. No there is neither a secret behind it nor any magic, even not a Guru formula
So what actually it is?
Ok, let me start my article and Hey! I warn you that don’t click the “X” button right on your browser’s TABS till you read my last word or the last Full stop ( . )
I would like to break this article in different parts. I mean different ways of How I Make Money Online.
This is the best and my first income source when I started my career online. I used to work for clients who are interested to get Graphics and logos. I worked with many clients for their Graphic and logo designs. And this lead to bank my account with a handful income per month or sometime in a week.
Yes, even my blog is a big part of my online income source. How?
Something before I start this part:
- I rarely sell Links on my blog
- I don’t do review which is not related to my niche (Designing)
- Even I am not serious about Adsense on my blog
So how do I make money from this blog?
I do nothing but share my knowledge about:
- Graphic Designing
- Photoshop Tutorials
- Freelancing tips etc
- Make Money Online
So how do I make money from this blog? I know you are curious to know that 😛
Ok, there is only one thing for which I still blog, WHAT?
To get clients! Yes I get clients from this blog. Again, HOW?
You might have checked my Hire me Page which is located in the Menu bar. Didn’t noticed? OK Click here
About 5 to 6 Logo and Graphic design projects are from my Blog.
[alert-warning] No one will hire you, Till you show them your expertise [/alert-warning]
And so I blog, I show them, my expertise, I help them, I love them. And they hire me
There is one more thing I do to get more logo design projects. I post article regarding my logos which I did for my clients. I showcase my all logos in a post. Here is an example 10 Most Creative logo Design from My Portfolio. After the end of article, I simply put a call to action text, check the screenshot below
And whenever someone check my post about the Logos, he/she may be interested to hire me and thus I am getting more projects from this method.
#3. Running a Freebie Download site to Earn $300 a month (Approx)
Making money from a Free PSD downloading site looks promising, because your visitors are much interested in Free PSD files rather than paying for it. So, How do I actually make $300 a month? I don’t want to write a detail post about it here, because I have already written about it. Check this How I make $300 A Month from Freebie Design Download Website. Read the article about how I make $300 from a freebie downloading site
#4. Niche sites
I was never interested in making money from adsense, but a screenshot of my friend of his adsense earning inspired me. He makes $$$$ (Four figure) per month from his niche sites. The idea is simply Choose a topic which has good CPC on adsense. Create a website with 5-10 Post. Rank #1 on google and start making money from Adsense.
I tested many things and after a month, now the niche sites giving me few dollars daily. I will write a detail post about this experiment soon.
[alert-note] Tip: Create as many niche site as you can. Rank them higher, start making good money per month from adsense. [/alert-note]
#5. Running OWN Designing and Marketing firm (The Best)
It was the best decision I did in my life, with my partner Nikita Mishra, We have started our own designing and marketing firm. Yes, it is MashinMedia. We did lots of work, for the first 4 months. But we never made any money. BUT as the time went on, we started making money. We are getting good number of clients every week. We are building our brand. We are doing everything to make it successful. Many people afraid to start their own firm, company or business.
But that’s what they are doing wrong. If you have an idea, Do it. I am saying it again Do it. Don’t give it another thought. Well running your own firm is not fun, but still you will enjoy if you are kind of people who like to be their own boss.
Some words from my self to newbies who are trying hard to make money online:
First of all yes, You can make money online. There are lots of opportunities online. The only thing you need to know the right way. If you don’t know how to do it,
- Take help from other bloggers, Online marketers.
- Experiment yourself (What I do)
- Read successful Money Making blogs
Also, its not easy to make money online. Online business works same as offline does. There is no Quick rick scheme, there is no magic formula, there is no magic online. All you have to do is hard work and experiment. I am sure, you will start making money as soon as you figure it out. Good luck!
