As technology advances and becomes more readily available and affordable, the opportunities to earn a living from the comfort of your home also increase. When searching for ways to make money from home, you’ll want to do plenty of research and investigation to ensure you’re using reputable and reliable services and companies. Depending on your needs, availability, and desires, you can earn extra money from a few dollars all the way up to a full time income and beyond.
To earn just a few extra spending dollars every month, consider rewards sites, such as Swagbucks or MyPoints. I do these in my spare time and earn about $100 a month between the two, without any purchases. (You can also get cash back rebates at the two of these on purchases, it works very similar to Ebates).
How does it work? They each offer “Codes” throughout the day, often found via their Facebook pages. You can answer a poll question each day, watch a few videos, answer surveys, and more. I do just a few things per day while I’m watching TV and the points add up. At the end of the month I redeem my points for Gift Cards (paypal or to a restaurant/store I shop at), and enjoy the extra money.
To earn a more part-time up to full time income, consider becoming a Virtual Assistant (VA) or Freelancer. There are MANY online forums and communities that list openings for this type of work. Some are one off jobs, in a variety of fields of expertise.
Others, short term work, some can start as short term and turn into longer term if it’s a great fit and a need is being filled. I’ve hired and done a few jobs on Fiverr. It’s great because to offer work, you set up a profile defining the work you’d like to do and the prices for your services. To hire work, you can find experts in many specific specialties and know the exact prices upfront.
To earn a full time income from home, there are also an abundance of traditional companies that now offer remote or work from home job opportunities. I know several people who’ve had great success by visiting the employment opportunities section of the company they’d like to work for, narrowing down the choices to “Remote” location, and determining what opportunities are open.
You can also look at more traditional job searching websites, and searching for “remote” openings. Companies such as Amazon, Google, Facebook, Dell, Apple, Walmart, Target, Hospitals, and more offer some work from home positions.
