I have heard a lot about ways to make money from home recently and began to ask myself at a point whether it was really possible to make money from home on a regular basis. It is true some people make some cash online while some find it difficult to get something that can fetch them some dough.
Everybody is looking for some form of financial freedom; nobody wants to work for another man all the days of his life. Some want to be their own master and determine how many hours they work daily. Others just are looking for a way to cut the rat race. People make money from home, but not equally – my research has helped me to discover this.
After visiting several sites online, and after trying my hands on a few things, I decided to come up with this post which I believe would be of help to those people out there who are thinking of where to start and what kind of business they could do from home and make money. There are actually several opportunities to make money from home on a regular basis, but I am only going to talk about 20 of such opportunities in this post.
This post is not designed to be exhaustive. So you have an opportunity to make your own contributions at the end of the post. I love to hear from you the various ways you have experimented that are giving you regular income from working from the comfort of your bedroom.
Why work from Home?
There are several reasons why people want to work from home. Let me quickly run through some of those reasons so that we can go to the main purpose of today’s post. So some of those reasons include:
1. They want to be their own bosses
2. They want to be in charge of their time and determine how long to work per day
3. It is less stressful compared to having to struggle with traffic to and from work
4. Enables more time to look after one’s family
5. Requires no hiring and payment for shops
6. Helps to cut cost (no payment of transport, no buying of fuel for your car, etc
Areas to make money from home
The following are the 20 areas where one can easily make money from home on a regular basis, so long as you are committed to your work. The opportunities to create wealth from these areas abound everywhere on the net; so you can make money from the comfort of your room in these areas:
A lot of websites are being built everyday. Bloggers are springing up; e-commerce stores are coming on stream and several brands are building their websites. These all require professional logo designers to help design logos that would represent these sites very well. If you are a logo designer, you can make money from home on a regular basis by designing logos for websites and blogs. The demand is quite high.
Freelance writing is another area where the demand is high. Of the over 200 million blogs and websites worldwide, only a few owners are actually able to update their sites without any form of assistance. Several of the site owners are too busy to do everything alone. So being a freelance writer or ghost writer is a great way to earn some cool cash.
I just talked about over 200 million blogs and websites; but funny enough, not up to half the number of the owners are able to design the sites themselves. They need professional web designers and blog designers to help them bring those blogs and websites to life. They need you to help them configure those sites and make them work the way they want.
Recently someone contacted me to find out if I could do blog commenting for him and get paid. He needed to build back links but didn’t know how to do it; he did not even have the time. I later realized that blog commenting has become a big business and back link seekers are willing to hire you to do the job for them.
Some people contact me regularly to help do guest posts on their behalf. They’ve seen my guest posts on several blogs like Blogengage, Spiceupyourblog, Mybloggertricks, Comluv, intenseblog, Bloggerspassion, Emfastincome, Webmaster-success, ajnabii.com, socialvani, ogbongeblog, stunningmesh, etc and the interactivity they generate, so they get in touch with me from time to time asking to do a guest post in their name. Some even tell me they wouldn’t mind even if it is just 200 to 300 words post. If you can develop your skills in that area, you can make a lot of money from home too.
I don’t need to emphasize on this too much because you all know that blogs are fetching moneys for bloggers these days and that a lot of them now write from their bedroom and earn big cash. Develop your blogging skills and the sky would be your limit to income earning.
Coders and programmers are in hot demand online and those who have mastered the job earn fat incomes online; they never need to work for anyone again. Coders and programmers also receive handsome rewards if they provide tutorials for web designing sites.
You can also work as an App developer and make some dollars from home. Apps are needed everywhere these days – Facebook Apps, Android Apps, Blackberry Apps, website Apps, etc. Vast opportunities abound here.
Special services: People need PayPal accounts, Adsense account, payoneer cards, etc but they don’t know how to go about it. For instance PayPal does not work in all countries, yet some people from such countries still open functional accounts. Google Adsense account has become very difficult to get these days, etc. If you can render those services satisfactorily, you are sure to make money from home.
Sponsored reviews is another way to earn passive recurrent income from home. You can earn regular passive income from here if you can do it very well. You can get sponsored reviews from sites like Sponsoredreviews, reviewme, Linkfromblog, etc.
Affiliate marketers are smiling to the bank everyday. This is one business that one can conveniently do from home and yet be comfortable earning fat incomes. All it takes is for you to understand some of the tricks and marketing skills involved in it and you are set to go. You can promote products from ClickBank, Linkshare, Shareasale, Avangate, etc.
Another option could be to select a specific product or services you already use and love. Some of them will have affiliate programs, especially SaaS companies. Moreover, another great option would be to support education and knowledge by promoting eLearning platforms. For example, companies like BitDegree and many others have 50% commissions for each course someone buys. This approach would also allow you to find some joy helping out companies that you value.
Some guys are earning recurrent, passive incomes by running a membership site where you pay some monthly or annual fee before you can get access to members privilege. If you have a membership site with 10,000 members and each member is paying only $10 annually to access the members privilege area, how much are you going to earn annually?
Multi-level marketing is dead and yet alive. So many people still run this form of marketing in different forms and they are making a real kill. If you arrange it well and members are getting paid, you will definitely get more members and make more money from home.
Online has become the place where a lot of people get what they want, including trainings. If you can organize online training in blogging, freelance writing, logo design, coding, photography, Adobe Photoshop, etc, then you are assured of regular revenue from home.
Social circles now play a relevant role in determining the importance of websites. So people want to increase their Facebook likes, twitter tweets, Google+ add, etc. If you can provide a service that takes care of this, you will be swimming in dollars. Retweet service can help do the magic – provide it and get a chunk of the pie.
Facebook Fan page:
With all the blogs and websites springing up here and there, Facebook fan page is in increasing demand. Master the art of setting up attractive Facebook fan page for individuals, blogs and websites and the money would be on your table.
Quality e-books are ways to make money from home. If you can write very good, highly informative e-books, you can easily sell them and make a lot of dough online. People need information, and they usually migrate toward those who can provide the information they need. You can money from either writing to sell or by writing for others and get paid.
Writing e-books is one good business; designing e-book covers for those who want to writing e e-books is also another big business. So if you can design quality e-book covers, you are sure to make money from home on a regular basis.
Have you noticed that a lot of website owners, bloggers and brand owners are all looking for ways to optimize their sites for the search engines to get high quality targeted free traffic. They want on-page and off-page optimization as well as building of back links. They want to submit their sites to web directories but are either too busy or too lazy to it themselves. If you can render these services, money is sure to come your way regularly.
Can you provide software like plugins, WordPress themes, automation software, e-mail software, etc? They are all in hot demand. They can easily fetch you the money you want. While not offer them online and get paid?
