With our modern interconnected world, making more money no longer means getting a nightshift. From the comfort and safety of your own home, you can start earning more money every day, dedicating as little or as much time as you are able.
But with every legitimate work-from-home opportunity there are scams out to deprive you of funds — or worse.
Keep your focus on sites and companies that have a good track record with helping people earn real cash, and get started with these eight ideas.
1. Take online surveys with Giftloop to get started earning money immediately. Give your real opinions and better your earning potential by signing up with, and using, multiple sites.
2. Use decluttr to find out what all those old CDs, books, and other tech are worth, and ship them all off for a check.
3. Turn your design ideas into T-shirts quickly with Teespring, and start selling to people around the world.
4. Become a social media pro and offer your services to businesses who need better content.
5. Help local businesses build websites using any popular platform, and they’ll keep coming back for your help.
6. Do simple edits on photos for people through a site like Fiverr— you’ll help them appreciate the memories and you’ll earn some quick cash.
7. Transcription work is easy to do from home and needed in all types of industries. As a medical or legal transcriptionist, you’ll see the highest rates, but many events and organizations need their speeches, conferences, or phone calls turned into written form.
8. Start investing with an app like Acorns or Stash that allows you to put some extra money into actual investments, without even needing to think about it. Using an app to get started investing also lets you monitor your money’s activity — and growth.
