With fewer and fewer jobs available, it only makes sense to work from home. Not only does it give you the freedom you need to raise your family, but you may find that the salary can be better than what’s available in your area. Whether you put your crafting skills to use or answer questions, there are so many great ways to earn money from home.
1. Put Your Crafting Skills to Use
Do you love to craft? Then why not put the items you’ve made up for sale on Etsy? The key to selling crafts is to make sure you have several products available before opening your shop. This allows you to sell so many more items. Once you find out which items sell the best, you can focus more on those. Another great tip is to offer custom orders that allow customers to choose a specific color, design, etc.
2. Answer Questions
There are sites that you can get paid for answering questions. If you have a passion or degree in a certain category, you can set a fixed price for answering questions. For example, if you breed bearded dragons, you might answer questions people have about the reptile. Another example is if you have a degree in business and answer questions about marketing. The possibilities are endless.
There are also lots of survey sites that will pay relatively well, especially when you do them regularly.
3. Do Small Tasks
Fiverr is an awesome place for putting your skills to use. The basic gig will pay you $5, but you can add extras and make a lot more per gig. Examples for what you do may be SEO research for bloggers, writing a haiku for couples, doing voice-over work, etc. Again, the possibilities are truly endless.
4. Graphic Design
Do you have a creative flare? Then put it to use. You can create memes for website owners, teasers for authors, or even full websites. A great place to get started making graphics is Canva.com. The site is free to use and gives you so many great options. You will need to pay for any stock photography you use, but the price is only $1 per photo.
5. Start Writing
Last, but not least, there are so many jobs you get online if you love to write. You can write content for bloggers, sell articles through companies like BlogMutt, transcribe audio into text, do data entry, and so much more. You could even write your own books to sell on Amazon.
