A Bit On The Side. How To Make Money From The Comfort Of Your Home
Most of us would love to be making a bit of money on the side. But we don’t have time to start a business or get a second job. Luckily, there are lots of ways to make money online and from the comfort of your own home. And here are three of them.
Start a blog
If you’re interested in starting a side hustle, blogging could be your new moneymaker. The key to success as a blogger is not necessarily being the world’s greatest writer. Instead, you want to create lots of unique content that will draw in readers.
There are three main ways to make money from blogging: affiliate links, paid posts and ad banners.
Affiliate links are easy to set up – simply join an affiliate program such as Amazon Associates and you’ll start making money whenever a reader clicks a link in your post and makes a purchase.
Ad banners can be set up using Google AdSense, but you’ll need to pay for a web hosting service or a WordPress business account to add this plugin.
Finally, paid posts are a bit more difficult to get as it requires convincing businesses to pay you to write blog posts that feature their product or service.
Whichever route you decide to go down, you’ll need plenty of website traffic and readers to start making money. Which is why unique, interesting, and regular content is essential. It is also prudent to check out the best satellite internet providers to ensure your internet is fast and reliable so that you can work from home with no interruptions.
Write an eBook
If you can write useful or creative content but you don’t have time to be blogging every week, you could write an eBook to gain some passive income. Producing an eBook is usually free or incredibly cheap. And you can sell it on an online eBook platform like Amazon, which will take a commission from every sale you make.
If you want to write a non-fiction eBook, which is easier than writing fiction if you aren’t great at creative writing, you’ll need to choose a popular topic. A browse of Amazon’s bestselling non-fiction books might give you some insight into what’s popular. This list of easy and effortless eBook ideas is also a great place to start if you don’t know what to write about.
Become a virtual assistant
Lots of business owners need a bit of help on the side. Whether it’s managing spreadsheets, replying to emails, or balancing accounts, small businesses and entrepreneurs don’t always want to hire a full-time, in-office assistant for a job that only requires a few hours of work a week.
This is where you can step in. Virtual assistants often work on a part-time or freelance basis and conduct all their work from home. All you need is a computer and an internet connection. Check out job boards like Gumtree, Indeed, Upwork, Fiverr, and Reed for ‘virtual assistant’ or ‘VA’ jobs. You don’t even need to be a VA for just one business. You could freelance your assistant skills to multiple clients and simply set aside an hour every day to complete tasks for them.
