    If you have an existing skill then all you needed to do is creating a gig around your skill on Fiverr and promote it hard.

    Another great way to generate income is by starting your own website and writing articles on a very specific niche.

    Yes, I’m talking about blogging on micro-niche websites.

    I will not recommend you to start your own blog on broad niches like mobile phones, cars, gadgets etc. because it will take around 1- 2 years to rank on the first page of Google.

    Micro niche sites have the ability to rank on the top of SERP (Search Engine Result Page) within a couple of weeks.

    For example,

    Instead of choosing mobile phones or Samsung as your niche, you can go specifically for Samsung headphones, Samsung mobile phones, Samsung mobile covers etc.

    What you need to do.

    • Choose your specific niche
    • Buy exact match domain related to your niche for eg. bestsamsungmobilecovers.com
    • Learn SEO & keyword research to start writing blogs for your website
    • When you start getting decent traffic… apply for Google Adsense

    10. Target Viral Niche On Youtube

    Ever daydream about eating a delicious piece of chocolate cake during this lockdown.

    If Yes, then you’re not alone.

    Almost every foodie lover daydream about eating varieties of recipes and because all the shops are closed they search on Youtube how to prepare them at home.

    Recently these two keywords have got so much viral on Youtube… 1st how to make dalgona coffee & 2nd Homemade cake from leftover biscuits.

    The amazing part?

    They are still trending !!

    So, what are you waiting for? start your own youtube channel and target such viral lockdown queries.

    What you need to do.

    • Acquire decent knowledge about your chosen topic, for eg. if you’re targeting cakes then you much know how to bake the cake with least number of ingredients
    • Create your Youtube channel
    • Start uploading videos on your Youtube channel

    Note: You can choose any topic you want other than food too!

    11. Sell All The Useless Products

    You can also make the list of all the products that are not in use.

    There are plenty of websites on which you can put old or useless things for you on sale.

    Here are some of the good websites.

    1. eBay – Great website to sell anything
    2. Cex – Best for selling electronic products

    You are even forgetting one big website that you can target i.e Facebook

    Facebook has its own place for buying and selling products locally aka Facebook marketplace.

    Take inspiration from other people who are already selling their products and then you’ll be ready to go with your own products.

    What you need to do.

    • Make a list of all products that are not in use
    • Register for trusted online auction websites
