This post showcases 4 ways to make money from home and they are literally tasks anyone can do in their pajamas without ever leaving the house. These tasks are great for stay-at-home parents who have some free time on their hands in between meal prep and nap time. But in addition, the tasks are also great for anyone looking to make extra money during their down time since each one can take as little as 15 mins to do. So what are you waiting for?!
4 Ways To Make Money From Home
1. Online Surveys
Online surveys are the probably the easiest and least time-consuming way to make money from home. All you have to do is register and start answering questions about products, stores, videos and more. I’ve heard of people making anywhere between $15-25 dollars an hour by doing surveys. Your only limitation is the number of available surveys out there to do.
These are the most popular online survey sites I recommend. Some are currently offering great incentives for new members.
- MyPoints – Current incentive includes $10 dollars for new customers.
- Swagbucks – Current incentive includes $5 dollars for new customers.
- Survey Junkie
2. Offer a Service on Fiverr
If you’ve never heard of Fiverr, you’re in for a treat! Fiverr is a self-serve platform that allows people to sell their services for $5 dollars – hence the name fiverr. These services are all digital in nature such as graphic design, proofreading, social marketing, creating business plans, blog creation, voice overs…and much more. Sellers are rated based on feedback and can add on additional services for more money.
If you’re good at something you can offer, do it on Fiverr. You never know who might want to hire you.
3. Sell Your Old Books
Have some old books lying around? Like the ones that have been on the shelves or in boxes for years and haven’t been touched since they’ve been put there? Luckily, they are pretty easy to offload for some extra cash without ever leaving your home.
Let me introduce BookScouter. BookScouter is kind of like Priceline for selling books; they search through 35 vendors who all are in the business of buying books. The offers are immediate and all you have to do is enter the ISBN number on BookScouter to get the process started. And if you accept an offer, a prepaid label for shipment will be provided.
4. Retail Arbitrage
Retail arbitrage is great for people who like to do their shopping online. You can browse Dollar Stores (Dollar Tree, Dollar General), Best Buy, Amazon, Target, Walmart and much more stores and grab bulk pricing, clearance items, and price mistakes for pennies on the dollar. Then, of course, flip those items for profit after you receive them.
