Madhu Padala is passionate about helping students make money with zero investment. He has experienced pain when he was broke with no job.

Students often look for various ways to make money after they graduate from their colleges and are forced by their parents to look out for a job and start earning their living.

In this new era, few are lucky to get their desired jobs and some get jobs that are irrelevant to what they have studied. Most keep trying to find a perfect one that suits their interests but fails to get one in spite of their several trial and error searches. So most parents put pressure on their children to go out and do something and earn money.

In this article of "How to make money with zero investment for students in 2020" I have shared some valuable suggestions that work legitimately for those students who are in need of making money online for their daily needs till such time, they get into at least one proper job of their liking if they choose to work for others dreams.


1. Make money by uploading pictures

If you are a good photographer and have a passion for taking unique pictures frequently then this is the easiest job for you to upload your pictures and sell it for a decent price and each picture that you upload may fetch you multiple payments from different customers worldwide. Each platform has a different price to pay you if your pictures are purchased and downloaded by others.

There are millions of people who want exposure online and get attracted to making money online working from the comfort of their homes. So they create a website or a blog and try to showcase their skills and talents trying to sell products and make money.

But at a certain point in time, they lose interest in writing posts for their blogs and give up. Some may find hard to express in English or don't understand what to write. But to keep up their challenge in maintaining their blog, they look out for article writers for their blogs and pay them accordingly to the skills that the article writer experience.

Now article writing is one of the booming industries with so many article writers ready to serve the bloggers and website owners by writing articles for them. You can get paid anywhere from 0.20 to Re 1/- per word. Some writers even charge Rs. 4-5 per word depending on their SEO and quality writing skills.

A normal article consists of a minimum of 500 words to 3000 words or more depending on the request of their client's choice. So for every article, you write you get paid money.

Some times you have to rewrite the article or add a few more words to make it interesting to read as the case may be by the client and the client may not pay you more for any kind of revisions. So one should always be creative in writing unique articles without grammatical errors so that it can be accepted the very first time of submission to the client.

4. Make money by training law of attraction

Many people in this world lack the way of right living due to their stressful schedules in their daily work routine. This kind of stressful life leads to an impact on their living lifestyle in a negative and fearful way.

So everyone nowadays are looking for motivation. If you had learned Laws of attraction or practicing every day by watching Youtube videos, then you can begin guiding them with the law of attraction principles, keeping them motivated using platforms like what's app, zoom training, Youtube videos, telegram social media and via blogging to name a few. After you create trust in people's minds through social media, you can offer online workshops for a reasonable fee and invite them to the nearest place available to you for conducting workshops for your participants.

You can charge them accordingly to your knowledge skills. People are willing to pay to transform themselves from a pathetic lifestyle to a healthier and happier lifestyle.


5. Make money by making youtube videos.

Youtube is one of the booming social media channels in this present era, where most of the people prefer to engage themselves in learning desired skills, watching entertainment videos for fun, watching old and new movies, mind refreshing music and many more.

The best way to make money online is by creating your own brand by selling your own products or affiliate products. Affiliate products are those products where you will be the middle man selling the products between the product owner and the customer. The product owner gives a share of his profit to the affiliate marketer (middle man) which may range anywhere from 5% to 90% of the product cost. But the latest trend is most of the product owners combine 3-5 products in a funnel with a different price range for each product. Once the front end product is sold by an affiliate marketer, he becomes eligible to receive commissions that follow thereon.

So this is one of the best ways of earning unlimited commissions if done the right way using YouTube channel.


6. Make money as a Freelancer in 2020.

Who is a Freelancer?

A freelancer is one who works on his own working from home by selling his specialized skills to clients online like,

  • Web designing,
  • Logo making,
  • Translator,
  • Digital marketer,
  • Data entry,
  • Accounting,
  • Graphic designing,
  • Voice-overs,
  • Video editing,
  • Infographics designer, etc.

The beauty of being a Freelancer is that client pays immediately upon the completion and submission of the work to the client. The best platform to work is The earnings are anywhere from Rs.7000 to Rs 100,000+ depending upon the quality and the commitment that is assured to the client before accepting the work order.



Students who passed out of colleges, but still not got their desired job, need not worry because after social media had become famous with the use of the latest gadgets and technology, there is a whole lot of money-making opportunities online where people are earning more than their stressful day jobs which I have covered in this article "How to Make Money With Zero Investment for Students in 2020".

One thing which I like the most is being a freelancer and working from home. Working from home is like being your own boss, setting up your own working hours and at the same time being with family always, going on vacations where ever and whenever you feel like going out without waiting for approved leaves from the boss if you had been working a 9-5 job.
