8 Ways To Make Money Online Working From Home
If you like writing then you can make money with this skill. You don’t have to be a novel level writer with extreme creative skills for this.
Their are so many businesses that are going online and making websites and they require writers who can create content for their websites.
You can apply to freelance websites like Fiver, Upwrok, Freelancer to find clients for this. Or you can pitch to websites owners directly via email or cold calling.
Beginner freelance writers earn less but once you get some experience you can charge more.
Some freelance writers make $500 to $2000 or even more while only dedicating part time hours to this side hustle.
Blogging is still one of the best ways to make money online. I can say this from experience. Once you figure out how to monetize a blog, you can make money from it for years to come.
But please note that blogging is not at all a get rich quick kind of a thing. It takes sheer will, hard work and consistency to make money through blogging.
If you have a full time job and still want to start making money online, then blogging is the number one way to make money. This is because you decide your work hours, how much time you can dedicate to it with your regular job.
There is no boss to tell you when and how to do things. The good thing about this side hustle is that almost anyone can start regardless of their age.
What I love most about blogging is it can become a very lucrative business once you set strong foundations and create a solid blogging strategy that works for you.
Suggested For You:
Making money online can be done by becoming a VA or virtual assistant. You will act as an assistant and help the business owner in managing or expanding their business by offering online assistance. This is what a VA does.
As a VA, you can offer different services like pinterest management, operations manager, managing social media of a business or an individual. You can also offer sales support to their clients or customers.
Virtual assistants earn a lot of money and this is a great way of making money on the side even if you are a student or an employee.
VA makes around $10 to $50 dollars per hour for their work. With more experience you can definitely charge higher than this amount.
Video Editors are high on demand ever since youtube became popular.
Most businesses and individuals are launching their youtube channels and they hire video editors for making their videos look more presentable and engaging.
Editing videos is not that difficult and you can learn this by watching tutorials on youtube or online learning platforms like Udemy.
You can earn a lot of money for this skill because it’s one of the most highly demanded skills in the recent years. Video editors can charge anywhere from $50 to $500 per video or even more.
Talking about videos, you can start your own youtube channel. If you know a skill you can start teaching and talking about that on youtube.
Whether it’s stitching, dancing, making cookies or anything else, you can teach these if you have the knowledge.
What if you do not have a special skill?
You can start a vlogging channel where you capture moments from your everyday life and create a video from that.
Trust me on this, vlogging channels are super popular and many youtubers are making a full time income and even more with their vlogging channels.
So if you like talking and want to share something with others, start your youtube channel.
Making printable and selling them is another way of making money online while working from home. You can make free printables using canva or picmonkey or photoshop.
Next you can sell them on your own blog or website or online marketplaces like Etsy, Redbubble, or Creative Fabrica.
You can make planners, stickers, binders, recipe cards, coloring pages, worksheets and books for kids. Selling printable is easier than most of the other side hustles.
You can charge anywhere from $1 to $50 dollars for your printables depending upon how much value you are proving through your printables.
Social Media Management
Many business owners and bloggers don’t have time to handle their social media accounts. You can offer the online service of social media management to such people.
You will be managing their accounts and also required to create captions, images etc. and post them on their account.
If you like social media and spend time on it, why not earn money while managing it for someone else.
Social media management services can be a really good way to make money online as you don’t require lots of knowledge or skills for this.
As a social media manager you can charge $15 to $100 dollars per hour or even per day.
