You can try your hand in Domain Flipping, It’s a business of buying and selling of Old/Expired Domain names.
You can buy some old and authority domains which are listed for sale and then sell them for even higher prices.
Online Marketplaces like Flippa have websites listed to be sold, Buying the best website, working on it and then reselling it at high prices even multiple times of buying price can be a very profitable business.

If you have anything special or skills which you think you could teach others then
you can make and sell courses for your readers and sell them at a good price.
Again, the power should be in the content and the way of your teaching.
Ripon Sahaji – Tech Ripon (Youtuber and a Blogger) have made money in lakhs
through just selling his courses.
Trust worthiness is again the most important factor.
28: Promote Offline Startups
