In this post I will tell you how to make money through coding.

Well The Most Important Thing is that you should be passionate about coding, you will not make money if you are learning coding just to make money

Lets Focus On The Ways Now

1) Teaching($25 to $50/hr)

Well if you teach someone how to code, this is beneficial because there are less teachers and therefore there is a high demand. Student are paying $25 to $50 an hour!!! The third reason is that you can do that when you are a beginner. Now you would say that it is impossible and how can you teach someone when you are a beginner yourself, well my answer would be it would be way better to teach someone, because firstly you will understand the concept better. Let's say that if you have an experience of a month in coding you can teach someone for a month that is a complete beginner, and don't start in the hopes of making money start in the hopes of making value. It is said that to teach someone is to teach yourself. You can make a profile on takelessons.

2) Freelancing($5k/month)

Well someone would ask that what is freelancing 🤔🤔 ??

Well according to wikipedia:
Freelance, freelancer, or freelance worker, are terms commonly used for a person who is self-employed and not necessarily committed to a particular employer long-term

Well according to me it refers to a person who sits at home and completes a project through a third party website or app for a company

Well what are these websites??

There are numerous websites like upwork,,, PeoplePerHour. What I highly recommend are upwork and fiverr.

What are the requirements ???

You Need To Have at 4 months of experience and if you have more than that then it is awesome but don't be too late. I have seen people who have 2 to 3 years of experience and are still learning, you see there are endless possibilities and things to learn in programming but you have to start experiencing the real world problems

3) Permanent Job (9 to 5 Job) ($5k to $7k/month)

Now this is a bit tough to get a job at big companies like FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google). They Expect You To Have Knowledge of Data Structures and Algorithms

How much experience should you have ??

You Should at least have a 13 months of experience to land a job at FANG or companies like them, you will have to try again sometime and fill out resume perfectly.

What will your salary be ???

Well most of the times it depends upon the company you are working in and the post you currently have. Mostly people working in big companies have a salary of $5k to $7K per month

Well these were the 3 ways to make money through coding.

What are the other things to keep in mind ??

Well You Should have a strong resume and as much experience as you can get and a good linkedin profile for job offers.

Social Media is also a Great Platform

You can create a nice profile on platforms like instagram, twitter, facebook and more. Well almost all of you have a profile on all of these. Well the advantage will be that people can reach out to you for freelancing, teaching and job purposes.

I will try to keep this article up to date so that it can help all of you
