If you have any business at your home then the best way to start earning online by taking your own business online. Convert your offline business to online and analyse what your competitors doing online and try to dominate then by applying digital methods to your traditional business.
If you don’t have any business at home then set up your startup. Pick up your interest topic, research on things, gathered the resources, starts creating own product and make your plan to enter in the market.

3. Start a career as a freelancer:
If above two options did not suit your requirement and you like to DIY ( do it yourself) method, love to working alone, your freedom is important for you then I should say go through freelancing platform.
If you don’t have any product or services to sell then ask yourself what I am specialised in? and can I offer my specific skill to anyone?
As you finalised what you want to offer then you can analyse your top competitors about what are they offering?
As you are new in this field so obviously offer your services cheaper than your competitors. May you don’t get any work or finalised any deal but you get noticed and get an enquiry.
So tell your customer why you are selling this cheap. Tell them I have started working in freelancing and new in this platform but I have good skills regarding your requirements.
I have experience but I have offered you less because I am new here. If You dint have authority may you dint get your first paid client then offers your service free?
Yes. you will tell them I offering this my service free for a month and if you like it and you are satisfied then take my paid service afterwords. Give him a decent free service for a month then ask for the paid ones.
To increase your authority while working in freelancing platform ask your customer to write a good review of your service, even you can offer them a discount to agree on him to write a good review.
