Do you know of an opportunity that I haven’t included here? Let me know, and I’ll add it!
Freelancing is a common choice for those who want to generate their income from home. However, you have skills, and you will want to evaluate your skills to see which type of freelance work you want. Do you like writing? You can become a freelance writer. Do you enjoy networking? You could become a social media manager. Do you like data entry and organizing files online? You could become a virtual assistant. Do you like creating banners or designing logos? You can become a graphic designer. Are you good at giving consultations in helpful ways or areas you’re knowledgeable about, such as SEO or social media management? You can become a consultant. How can you offer those services? The good news is that there are freelancing platforms that include:
You will want to go on one of those websites and take a look and see what other sellers are offering. If you find a seller you see yourself competing with, you know what you will offer. For example, if you want to improve a skill, you can take a course, and platforms such as Udemy can sell affordable courses.
Sell Crafts Or Clothing
Are you the craft type, and you are good at knitting, making candles or soap, or making knickknacks and so on? Why not monetize that? You can sell your goods on platforms such as:
Start A Niche Blog
The good news is that you can make money from blogging. However, it takes patience and work before you begin seeing the fruits of your labor. First, you want to start a niche blog in a popular niche but not overly competitive unless you add your twist to it. Popular niches include health and beauty, fitness, parenting, make money from home, gardening, pets, fashion, and you can create a lifestyle blog that features several of those niches. Next, you may want to take courses in SEO to learn how to optimize your posts, and you will want to commit to writing three posts a week. Finally, you will want to add Google Analytics to your blog, too, so you can measure how much traffic you are receiving.
Start creating a social media following for your blog, such as creating a Facebook page, a Twitter account, Instagram, Pinterest, and even create a TikTok account as that platform is trendy. Once your traffic begins to soar, you can look for affiliate marketing companies so you can earn money if someone makes a purchase from your site to an affiliate. Amazon has an affiliate program too. You can also advertise any freelance service or any of your products on your blog too.
Write A Book
You can write a book or an eBook about a topic that will interest many people. You can earn an income if you market your book well, and you can sell the book on Amazon and your personal blog. (That’s why I always recommend that you have a blog!) You can write a novel or nonfiction. The sky is the limit with that.
Pet Sitting Or Dog Walking
Pet sitting and dog walking are both appealing lines of work for many people, but this type of job may be complex if you have to deal with babies or toddlers who don’t attend school yet. However, you can still be a dog walker and walk people’s dogs somewhere away from home. You may be able to make this job work for you, given that you do not necessarily have to be home if you become a dog walker. Animals are excellent healers, and that is why you may want to go into the line of work where you can work with them. You can go to Rover and sign up if you want to register as a dog walker or pet sitter.
Become A Driver Or A Delivery Person
Another line of work that may be ideal for you if you’re looking for more flexibility is to become a driver, such as an Uber driver. However, that means you will have to drive people around, and you are also taking risks in not knowing who you are driving. Since you know this, you may prefer to be a delivery driver instead. For example, you can do delivery work for Amazon through their Flex program.
You can also be a food delivery person as you can work for companies such as Uber Eats, and you can go to the Uber website. You can also work for DoorDash to deliver food from restaurants to customers.
Do you like taking pictures? Are you good at photography? If so, why not make some money by doing that? You can learn to take outstanding pictures with your phone, and you can sell your pictures to stock photography sites such as:
You can also sell your photographs on Etsy and use them for items you can make, such as pillows, keychains, and mugs. In addition, you can take pictures of anything scenic! It does not matter if you want to sell your photographs of nature, food, cities, and so on!
Tutoring And Teaching
If you want to tutor and teach children in China English, you need a college degree. You also have to have some experience with kids. If this is something you see yourself doing, there are sites where you can send an application:
If you want to work with children and have a college degree, you can apply to any listed sites.
Are you good at transcription, or is this something you want to do? You can always take courses on transcription through Udemy, and you can learn how to transcribe any text. For example, you would type each word that you hear from an audio or video. In addition, some companies offer transcription jobs and services to clients, and they are:
If none of these ideas interest you, there is good news. You can work in a customer service-related job which means you will need to chat with customers. However, you don’t have to worry about marketing your services. You will have a remote job from a reliable company.
Companies that are consistently hiring for remote customer service workers are:
There may be other live chat jobs you can find as well that are not on this list. In the meantime, there are other straightforward ways you can make extra money as well. If this is something you have not done before, you will have some training provided to you by the company before you start working.
Additional Ways To Make Money From Your Phone Or Computer
You can always make additional money by doing web searches, watching videos, playing games, and completing surveys. Of course, you will not get rich, but there is nothing wrong with collecting some extra pocket money that you can put away and save. So let’s go over some good-quality sites where you can earn some extra cash:
- Daily Rewards
- User Interviews
- Product Report Card
- MindField Online
- Opinion Outpost
- Branded Surveys
- Pinecone Research
Those are a few handpicked surveys, gaming, or video sites where you can make some extra cash. You can also join some focus groups if that is what you want to do through those sites.
