Anchoring :

I call it as one of the best part-time profession in India, Communication skills is one of the major problems in India but India is one of the biggest markets for event & wedding industry, population of 135 Cr+ is kind of advantage for this industry, every year thousands of corporate events, social gathering, and lakhs of weddings are happening in India where an anchoring is a very big scope.

Top anchors in India are charging in lakhs of rupees per show.

We Indian gives a very much importance to astrology and vastu shashtra in our lives. Having the good knowledge of astrology and vastu can give you amazing income and normally it doesn’t need full-time attention. One should have sound knowledge and practice of it before starting. On an average, you can earn in thousands in astrology while if you have good command on vastu it can go in lakhs also. Nowadays there are few institutions which are providing astrology and vastu courses.

You can charge Rs. 10,000-1,00,000 from the family to teach them the skills of dance for Sangeet. Sangeet is becoming more popular in India day by day, people are spending the big percentage of the total budget in sangeet now.

Content is one of the biggest influencing factors in digital and informative marketing. Writing blogs and earning through affiliate marketing or ads is one option and another one is writing for others. Content writers are getting 50 Paisa to 7-8 Rs Per Word, in few cases, it may go higher. Storytelling, blog posts, concept based informative articles and so many other options are waiting for you if you are really good in writing and wise in selecting words.

Social Media Marketing Manager:

Oh, this is one of the biggest market for those who are looking for part-time income option, small vendor to big industries maximum of them are trying to get new customers from social media but very limited people knows the right methods. You can outsource the page optimization, ad campaign management etc, elections are coming soon so even politicians on local to global level tries to influence their voters via social media. You can manage Facebook pages, Twitter handles, and Instagram accounts. Pay package completely depends on your skills still for an idea you can charge Rs. 3000-10000 for facebook page management + camping budget.

Yoga Trainer:

if you are fitness freak and love to motivate people for healthy life you can take yoga classes in early morning/evening hours, you can approach to existing yoga centers or even you can take it in societies / public gardens or at your home. While teaching yoga you can earn money as well as blessings of people

PS : I have mentioned maximum options where you’ll definitely need a computer with internet and knowledge of that profession to spread the wings of your own brand, in initial days you’ll not need to invest in any supporting product or infrastructure, Like if you go for photography, you’ll need to buy expensive cameras or a wedding planner will need to manage capital issues/man power so I tried to project the simple options which you can start within few days.

Don’t forget to polish your skills before starting the new part-time profession.

Happy Earnings!
