Working from home provides flexibility and may be a good option if you want to top up your income or you have commitments that prevent you working set hours. Doorstep loan providers, Morses Club, have put together a list of 10 ways you could make money without leaving the house.
Do you have a skill you could share with others? Can you play a musical instrument or speak a second language? Websites like as Udemy or SkillShare allow you to create online lessons and get paid for teaching your favourite subjects.
Translating or transcribing
Amazon Mechanical Turk is a popular site for companies requiring services such as translating and transcribing as well as other human intelligence tasks. You can choose which projects you bid for and how much work you take on.
Many small businesses outsource administrative tasks such as call answering, email management, bookkeeping, data input and managing booking systems. These can all be done from your home and you can set your own rates.
Web design, graphic design, content writing, video editing and proofreading are all in demand. You can offer your skills as a freelancer through sites like Upwork or Fiverr and bid on the work you want.
Provide a professional ironing service for local clients. You can charge per item or per basket and choose how much work you take on.
Alterations & repairs
If you have dressmaking or sewing skills, then utilise them from the comfort of your home by offering alterations and repairs on items of clothing.
Using the internet
You can get paid for doing online searches, watching videos, completing surveys and playing games through sites like Swagbucks. There are also sites that offer incentives for testing mobile apps and websites.
Voice123.com and similar sites offer the opportunity to get paid as a voice artist. You can audition for various jobs and get paid for reading scripts or providing voiceovers if your voice is right for the project.
Stock image sites such as Dreamstime, iStockPhoto and Shutterstock give you the option to sell your images online without the need for your own website.
If you have a large online following, then you can get paid for talking about or sharing images of a product on your social media accounts. Some companies may pay to advertise on your blog, videos or newsletter if you have a lot of subscribers.
Although it is possible to make money in the above ways, there is no guarantee these will work for you. You do need the required skills if you expect people to pay for a service. If you do think you have what it takes, then you could earn a substantial income, but don’t forget to tell the tax man about anything you earn.
