A lot of students are already selling gigs on Fiverr and earning a good income based on their skills. As a student, you can also sell your gigs on Fiverr and earn 5$ (or more) per small jobs performed. All you need to do is to sign up for Fiverr & update your services. This is also a zero investment based work.

4. Buy & Sell Domain Names

A domain name is simply an address where the user can visit any website ( for example fullonstudy.com is a domain name). Whether you believe me or not, but thousands of domain names are registered every day. It means the marketplace of domain names are continuously increasing. The best domain names are those which can be easily remembered and are short.

What you can do is to purchase those domains which can give you best value for your money. And then find your target customers and sell your domains at higher prices. Also, you can sell your valuable domains in various auctions online. This domain business requires little initial investment in purchasing domains.

However, you can buy domain names from Godaddy as low as 0.99$. Some of the best website from where you can purchase domain names are :

If you are passionate about making videos then I recommend you to start a YouTube channel & stick to a niche you are passionate about. Some of the most profitable niches for YouTube are :

  • Vlogs
  • Tech Videos
  • Gaming
  • Tutorials and
  • Product Reviews

You can easily make money online by running ads on your YouTube videos, affiliate marketing & by Sponsorship. I have placed YouTube at last of the 5 due to some of its restrictions for publishers.

#Final Words :

All the method I’ve shared above works best if you are passionate about doing things. And remember one more thing “Always do what you love” because if you are not doing what you love, you are wasting your time. If you love to write then start a new blog, If you love playing games make a gaming channel on YouTube. I’m saying all this because when you combine your passion with your skills, you become successful & I want to see you successful.

"If you do what you love, 
you'll never work a day in your life."
