Blogging is basically writing and sharing about something which you are really good at. Blogging is fun and one can gain a lot of knowledge and money by blogging. If you can make some investment then one can start their own blog site or else can work on others blog site.

Blogging without any Investment
Blogger: Blogger is a blog publishing network launched by Google especially for writers who love to share their knowledge online. One can create their own blog using Blogger for free and the URL will be like www.yourblogname.blogspot.com; so it will have a blogspot extension to it.

How to Earn from Blog?
Now we have our blog and the next question will be how to earn from it? Once we have few quality articles in our blog we can apply for programs like Google Adsense or Chitika. After the approval we can put in the Ads on our blog and based on clicks we get paid. So to earn more we will first have to write quality articles and then promote those articles to bring in more visitors thus more clicks and money.
You can also earn from online marketing like putting in Ads of Amazon or eBay product and thus generating money on every sale.
- Write good quality article
- Never click on your own Ads
- Never ask your friends to click on your Ads

Note: Earning from Blog will require some patience as the pay depends on the traffic you get on your blog. But Blogging is the best way to earn online when you look at it at a long term perspective.

There are many such micro job site available online… The best thing about this job is we can decide our rule along with the desired cost.
If you have a very good marketing skill then you can reap a lot of money through online marketing.
Taking a Lead -> Promoting a Product -> Sale -> Commission
Let me give you an example of what I have done… I have joined Hostgator Affiliate Program few months back and got my Affiliate Link along with the Discount Code. I wrote an article about Hostgator and put in the discount code wherein both I and the Visitor got benefited… Let’s see how…
When a Visitor uses the Discount Code they get 25-30% off so they will be benefited. I get $50 for every sale that I make irrespective of the sale amount; so its win-win situation for both.
Thus each affiliate program will have its own rules and regulations… few will pay commission on every sale (10% of sale amount), few pay a certain amount on every sale and few pay even for leads (diverting members towards the site).
For people who don’t have a site… they can Google for discussion boards which is related to the product and put in the affiliate link on those sites.
There are many ways through which one can make money online and these are the best money making ideas for students which can yield a decent amount of money. Try it and post in your experience or queries…
