In this article, I will be revealing 8 easy ways you can make a decent living off the internet while residing in Pakistan in 2021.
If you have ever searched the internet about making money online in Pakistani, the term ‘freelancing’ must have popped up in your search. Despite its popularity, many people still don’t have an idea about what freelancing is.
Some businesses, organizations, or individuals at a point in time require certain skills that they don’t have an in-house worker for. These companies look for freelancers who offer these specific skills and hire them on a contract basis.
Examples of skills that freelancers are hired for include: Content Writing, Copywriting, Virtual Assistant services, Designing, Translation, Data Entry, and many more.
You can market your services on various freelancing platforms like Upwork, Fiverr, Freelancer, People per Hour, etc.
Start a blog is one of the best ways to earn money online. You can earn money from a blog through various channels including affiliate links, ads, writing for other blogs or websites, selling your product, etc.
You can create a blog about almost anything. This can be from your topic of interest or personal hobbies. Avoid copying other people’s work or blog posts, it causes more harm than good. Google has strict punishment for blogs or websites that plagiarize content.
You can write the content yourself or if you have money, you can hire a professional writer to write them for you.
3. Developing Website and Apps
Developing websites and apps require a level of computer and technology knowledge. This is suitable for computer students to apply what they have been taught and earn lots of money from it. Non-tech people can learn it too.
The market for professional web and app designers is hot right now. There is a lot of opportunities in this industry.
You can sell your services to friends or neighboring clients. You can also leverage your coding skills on freelancing platforms like Fiverr to connect with foreign clients who are ready to pay for your services.
You can make money on YouTube as the platform is the most-watched video streaming site in the world, but that’s not all the site offers. The streaming platform has a system that rewards Youtubers with lots of loyal followings—subscribers and viewers.
You can easily create a YouTube channel in Pakistan and share your view with the world. Like blogging, you can focus your channel on the topic of your choice. Some YouTube channel ideas include food reviews, travel and tourism, music videos, product reviews, unpacking gadgets, quick tips, recipes, instructions, and even funny video compilations.
Growing your YouTube to a profitable stage takes time and effort but when all the stage is set, it’s worth every energy invested.
5. Selling Products on an e-commerce Website
E-commerce is another great way of making money online. The major difference between e-commerce and the traditional brick-and-mortar store is the medium—internet-based.
You will need some money to set up an e-commerce store and start selling products online. You can sell your product or list the product of another manufacturer or supplier on your store and get paid in form of a commission. E-commerce websites in Pakistan e.g. Daraz let you showcase your product on their platform. A great foreign alternative is Shopify.
6. Offering Tax Services
With a degree in accounting or economics, you can start your own online Tax consulting agency. You will be helping organizations, businesses, and individuals with tax filing and related issues.
For a start, you will need a registered business name and an office (or you can work from home). There is little competition in this industry and you can take advantage of this opening to start making some serious money.
7. Paid Survey
Do you know you can earn some stipends online just by answering certain questions?
Yes, survey companies pay people who answer surveys on their site. The subject of the survey can be on any topic including politics, gadgets and devices, food, and many more. Successful completion of the survey guarantees payment.
This isn’t something you can make a living from but you can’t underestimate what you can accumulate within a month.
Some of the best online survey websites worth checking out are: Earning Station, Survey Club, OneOpinion, InboxDollars, Vindale Research, etc.
8. Affiliate Websites
Affiliate Marketing is fast becoming more popular in Pakistan. You can get paid a pre-agreed commission for promoting a product for a company.
You can promote affiliate products through your blog, website, or social media platform. A word of precaution, be careful which product you promote on your website or blog as promoting a bad product for some commission is not worth losing the trust of your audience.
Some of the best affiliate marketing websites in Pakistan include Daraz, Inspidium, Goto, Emarkaz, Mehndi, Travel & Culture, etc.
