There are so many ways that you can make some money right from your home and with very little effort too! Doesn’t that sound nice? Well, if you find that you have time to spare and need to make some money then look no further! We have compiled a list of ways that you can start making more money from home, and fast!

1. Surveys

There are tons of companies and researchers out there that need information and opinions from everyday people. Online surveys are a great way to make a little money here and there. Many sites offer you easy access to online surveys that are paying you to be taken.

The kind of survey can vary too so there are most likely some that you are genuinely interested in participating in. All these require is a way to access the internet and spare time. The pay can range from $2 to as high as $10. If you’re willing to take the time, online surveys are definitely something to consider!

2. Selling Your Stuff

I know it can be hard to part with personal belongings. This can be especially hard when they have some sort of emotional value placed on them. If you are looking to make money in an easy way, however, selling your belongings can get you cash quick! Many sites and stores will take your used goods and, based on the condition they are still in, sell them to you! Some stores may want specific goods, like used tech stores may buy your old iPhone off of you. Pawn shops and other places may be more interested in a variety of objects, so make sure to try selling to multiple places to get the best bang for your buck!

You can also sell goods directly to other people on sites like Etsy, Craigslist, and eBay. This is faster and you may be able to sell for a higher price by cutting out the middleman! These sites simply require that you make an account and upload pictures and descriptions of what you want to sell. After that all you do is wait for an offer to roll around, simple as that!

3. Make Your Own Website

Another way people make money that a lot of people didn’t know is simply by having a website! The more people that visit your site, the more money you can make. Its as easy as that! The more organized and easy your website is, the more people will use it. There are a wide range of online services that can help you design your own website. Bonus, it tends to be cheap and easy and you can do it right from your home on your computer!

There are many studies that show a more specific website will be more successful when it comes to getting users, so make sure your site has a purpose too. Find a hobby, passion, or interest that you can use to base your site on. It’s not very hard and it can start getting you money as soon as you get it set up!

4. Get an Online Job

Many companies require work to be done that doesn’t necessarily need to be done in an office. In fact, having the space for employees can cost the company more money than it is worth. There are a ton of companies that will offer employment right from your home. Make sure to spend a good amount of time looking for the right online job.

These should be treated like any other job, and you need to make sure you have the time for what they need, but if their jobs fits with your schedule it can be a great opportunity to consider. These jobs can make a great second job if you don’t get scheduled enough hours, or you have a lot of free time and need to make a little more money on the side! All you will need are you resume, cover letter, and possibly letters of recommendation to send the companies you apply for. Easy, right?

5. Youtube

Now I know that it feels like everyone these days is Instagram famous or maybe a Youtube star. Well there is a reason for it! Once you gain enough followers on social media it can actually become very lucrative.

Having mass amounts of followers can get you a paycheck by these companies, and the number on the check gets higher as your followers increase. This is because these social media platforms allow for advertisements to be placed within the site. If your profile attracts more people to the website, then more people will be looking at these ads. This is why you will get paid to keep users coming back for more!

All you need for this is really you computer, phone, and maybe a good camera. You can make an Instagram account or Youtube channel about basically anything, so get creative and get those followers!

6. Babysitting

Maybe you already work full time from home and want to find a way to make a little more. Or maybe you simply have a lot of time and space and want to use it to help you make some money! Babysitting from your home can make you a lot of money, and it can be super simple. People can drop their kids off when they have work, or a day of travel.

Having the kids stay at your own home can make you more money than you going to someone else’s home. You can also get to watch more kids at once if multiple people have you watch their kids at once. Playing with kids can also be really fun, and often times it doesn’t really require a lot of work. Just give them a game to play or a movie to watch. You get to join in on the fun with them too! It’s a win-win.

7. Walking Dogs

A lot of people who may also need help taking care of their pets. You could have them over to your house during the day, just like babysitting which we just talked about. Sometimes, however, people just need someone to walk their dog while they are at work. Dog walking is yet another way you can make money for little effort and fast! It can also be a good way to get you some fresh air and exercise in the middle of your day.

Now there are companies and apps that can help people find a dog walker. Wag is an app that connects people with dog walkers and can get them their dog walked in a matter of minutes! Try making accounts on these sites. You don’t even need a ton of experience with dogs, but make sure you are comfortable working with animals.

8. Making Goods From Home

People love stuff. There is no denying it! A lot of people particularly love homemade goods. If you are a crafty kind of person and you can make goods to sell from home, this can not only be an easy way to make a little money but also a fun way to get some creative juices flowing! Making crafts such as candles, soaps, cakes, etc. can all be such a fun way to spend your time.

This at-home job requires more initial supplies to make the goods with, however it can make you more money than some of the other jobs we discussed. Selling the goods may also require a website, so if this one interests you go look above for our discussion on making a website!

9. Promote A Business

Many businesses need people to promote them in the earlier stages to help them get more attention. This is where you come in. Many companies will pay people to become ambassadors or promoters to show off their products and potentially inform people about them too! Often times all you have to do is wait and they will send you some of their products and merchandise to wear, use, promote. This can literally require nothing more than you wearing a shirt around during the day with the company’s logo on it.

Some companies will want people to go to a public place and talk about their products. It can vary so do your research when looking for a company to promote, but it can be an easy way to make you moolah!

10. Write an EBook

Are you a good writer? People pay to read good writing. It doesn’t have to be a Pulitzer prize winning author for someone to read a book. There are many sites that will help you create and write your own ebook. Although this can take a lot more time before you make money from it, if you are passionate about writing or about what you are writing about then the payoff can be really good!

The more people that read your book, the more money you can make. This means that you should really invest time to make your book as good as it can be. Writing a book can also be a great way to be creative and blow off some steam. Depending on what you write about it can also be very fulfilling as you can help a lot of people with your book.
