8 Ways to Make Money From Home

Being stuck at home can be boring and potentially feeling unproductive. To keep yourself busy and earn a few bucks, I am sharing 8 ways to make money from home.

1. Freelancing

If you are unfamiliar with freelancing, think of it as being self-employed and typically for short-term projects. There are so many things you can do such as resume building, creating logos, translating and more.

2. Start a blog

Brit and I started a blog as a way to share our expertise but as well something to do together. Can anyone say couples goals? Starting a blog can seem overwhelming at first but if you break it down into steps, you can be writing your first post before you know it. If you have no idea where to begin with blogging, you can use platforms such as WordPress.com, Medium, Blogger and a few others. Otherwise, to have full control over your blog, we suggest self-hosting for maximum potential. If you want us to share our guide to creating a blog, let us know.

3. Complete surveys

Although you can technically make money from completing surveys, it will likely take you quite a bit of time to do so. This one is probably my least favourite on this list. You can sign up for programs like Swagbucks to complete surveys and other tasks in exchange for gift cards or products.

4. Food Delivery

Almost anyone can sign up to deliver for Uber Eats or Skip the Dishes. This is a great way to not only make a “commission” from each completed delivery, but customers could also tip you. Extra cash in your pocket is definitely a bonus.

5. Resell items

There are a couple ways you can approach this idea. Start small by buying things from your local thrift shops, selling individual items. You can also use marketplaces such as Facebook or Kijiji to find lucrative products. If you like more risk/reward, you can look for manufacturers on sites such as Alibaba to mass-produce a killer product. The latter will involve a lot more research and can result in losing a lot of money if you aren’t careful.

6. Tutoring

If you are an expert in a subject taught in school, you can help students achieve greater grades.

7. Handmade items

Kind of similar to selling on eBay/Amazon, but Etsy typically involves a little more creativity. Etsy is a platform designed to help people sell handmade items (not mass production). This can be as simple as iron-on t-shirts to 3D printed items.

8. Create an online course

If you don’t feel comfortable tutoring someone directly, or would like to reach a broader audience, create an online course. Udemy is a platform that I have used several times to learn more about particular topics. The great thing about online courses is that you aren’t limited to subjects taught in the educational curriculums. Coding, photography, video editing and fitness are just some ideas.
