8 Great Ways to Make Money from Home
There are a lot of different reasons why people want to work from home. Perhaps you have young kids at home and you don’t want to put them in daycare (or, can’t afford to). Maybe you have limited mobility and working from home is just a better option for you. Or, maybe you just want to work in your pajamas! Working from home can also help you save money. You don’t have to pay for gas to get to and from work, no new work outfits are needed and no lunches out are required. Whatever the reason, there are definitely many options available to you in this day and age.
One thing you will need for almost all of these positions is a good/reliable computer and a fast internet connection. This will be your lifeline in most of these jobs.
The type of work you are looking for will depend on whether you are looking for a full time income or just some extra spending cash.
First and foremost, there are a lot of scams out there so here are a couple of pointers to help you steer clear of the not-so-legit ones. You should never have to pay a fee to get more information. If they are asking for money – red flag. If you get an unsolicited junk email, I would stay away from it.
Surveys – You can make real cash from survey companies. You may not qualify for every survey but if you stay with it and do a few a week, it will add up. Many of these also allow you to test products too – you get paid and get to keep the product too!
Start your Own Business – What are your strengths? Do you like to sell? Are you proficient in writing, editing and proofreading? Are you creative? There are many different businesses that can work with your strengths. Mary Kay, Avon, Thirty One Gifts, Pampered Chefs and others are always looking for new distributors.
Virtual Assistant – You can work for a website or blog from your own home. This is something we personally do here at Mojo Savings. We have several VA’s who work to bring you great deals. You can use your time and talents to be a secretary, personal assistant or employee for another site.
Consultant – Do you have specific and extensive knowledge in a particular area? Market yourself out as a consultant to those who need your services. This could be anything from graphic design, SEO, interior design or organizational skills.
Start a Daycare – This may require certain licenses depending on your area but may be worth looking into if you already have little ones at home.
Customer Service Rep – There are a lot of companies out there now who hire out for their customer service. Companies like Alpine Access employ work at home customer service agents who take in-bound calls for dozens of companies.
Sell your items – Are you crafty and in search of customers? Do you have a large collection of Baseball cards? You can list and sell your items on sites like eBay and Etsy.
eJury – You can sit and watch mock trials and give your verdict and get paid. eJurors are paid $5 to $10 per verdict.
