1. Subject Matter Expert Jobs:

According to Wikipedia: A subject-matter expert is a person who is an authority in a particular area or topic. The term is used when developing materials about a topic, and expertise on the topic is needed by the personnel developing the material. 

There are a lot of websites to earn money as a Subject Matter Expert(SME). Here are 3 popular subject matter expert websites:

a. Chegg India


c. CourseHero

Many of my friends use Chegg as a subject matter expert and they earn as high as Rs. 50k+ per month. For some peak month, they can make 1 Lakh working from home.

To work as a Subject Matter Expert, you need to join these websites by clearing a simple test. They ask for the documents which you can provide. 

After verification, you can start answering questions adhering to their privacy and policies.

There are many subjects for which they hire SMEs but all the subjects won’t pay you the same money. If you are involved in some advanced subjects like mathematics, statistics, engineering subjects, you can earn more.

I have personally earned Rs.40k+ per month from Chegg working 3 hours a day. So, if you are college students, you should not miss this opportunity.
