Nowadays, everyone is on Google looking for ways on how to make money online, and why not, there are so many opportunities for anyone with even zero technical qualification can use this online medium to make enough money and make a wonderful career for themselves.
In this blog we are exploring 13 ways on how to make money online with a minimum skillset and maximum earning:
So, let’s start
No.1 Sell Items Online
What better way to make money than by selling items cluttering up your home? You can sell old furniture, clothing, kitchen appliances, smartwatch or tools all online.
It only takes a few minutes to post an item for sale online.
All you have to do is take a few pictures of the things you are selling, post them on sites like eBay, Flipkart, Amazon, Olx… and write an honest description describing the condition of the item for sale, or rather build a story for your item if it’s a unique one, you can pretty much ake a make a decent money out of it.
No.2 Take Surveys
While taking a survey probably won’t increase your productivity, but there are many online platforms which take surveys to collect the data, and they do provide a way to make money while sitting in your home comfortably.
Survey sites typically pay a few dollars per survey. The longer the review, or the more qualifications you meet, the more you will be paid. Some of these sites pay in cash as well, while others reward individuals with gift cards or reward points. Not bad for a work from home career.
No.3 Start a Blog
Blogging has increased in popularity these, and there is great potential to make huge money if you start a blog. It will take time and hard work to make money through blogging, but if you genuinely enjoy what you are blogging about, it will be a fun (or at least tolerable!) process for you. Many people started their blog as a hobby, only to find themselves making money from it.
There are many ways to make money through a blog, including advertising, sponsored content, and affiliate networks. Many bloggers leverage their blog to get freelance writing jobs, paid speaking gigs, and book deals.
No.4 Freelance Writing
If you have good communication and writing skills, freelance writing is the perfect way to earn money from home. With freelance writing, businesses or websites hire you as an independent contractor to create content for their websites, newsletters, or even promotional items. You can set your rates for each project.
If you are interested in freelance writing, I highly recommend starting a blog; select your niche in which you would like to start writing and you are in the game.
In my case, that’s why I chose to become a freelance writer, to work from the comfort of home and make enough money, and if it worked for me if can work for you as well.
No.5 Become a Virtual Assistant
Virtual assisting is not only a great way to earn money from your computer, but it can also give you an opportunity to have a full-time work from home job.
A virtual assistant, or VA, is a person who helps an individual or business all online. It is similar to an executive assistant, but all online. The VA job may vary, but usual everyday tasks include scheduling meetings, proofing content, sharing content on social media, and other administrative tasks.
No.6 Write and Sell eBooks.
For anyone who enjoys writing, you can write your eBook and sell it for profit.
eBooks are a great way to make money because they do not require much overhead. Writing and selling your eBook can be as simple as writing the material, saving it as a PDF, and upload it to a site to start selling.
You can publish your eBook through Smashwords, Booktango, and Amazon Kindle, or you can create your blog and sell your eBook straight from there.
No.7 Create a Course
Would you consider yourself to be very knowledgeable about a specific topic? You can earn money by sharing your knowledge with others via an online course. With whatever topic you choose, you can create an online course by planning out what content you will cover, creating worksheets, and offering valuable resources for your target audience.
You can charge a set class fee from anyone who signs up for your course, or you can teach on websites such as Coursera or Udemy, or you can have your own online portal where you sell your courses all on your own.
No.8 Sell Stock Photos
If you are skilled in photography, you can sell quality photos online on stock photos. Stock photos are photos that others pay to download and use for their marketing and on their websites.
You can sell stock photos on prominent websites like stock photos. The best part about selling stock photos is that once you take the picture and upload it, the rest is passive income. You will get money every time someone downloads the image.
No.9 Design Logos
Have a knack for graphic design? From companies to individuals to websites, the demand for logo work is pretty high. If you have a creative eye, this could be a fun and profitable way to make money online.
Logo work can be as simple or complicated as you want it to be. I know individuals who spend a lot of money on the latest editing software, but I also know people who utilize free software, such as Canva to create logos.
No.10 Write and Edit Resumes
The ability to write a beautiful resume is very rare, and strong resume-writing skills are pretty much in demand. Best of all, there is a myriad of ways to work from home while correcting resumes. You can work for a resume writing company or start your own business.
If you are looking to start your own resume-writing business, it’s best to start building your portfolio. You can easily create a portfolio by asking friends and family to let you review and edit their resume.
From there, you have created a collection that you can send to potential clients. And if you would prefer to join a professional resume-writing company, Talent Inc., and Risesmart are a couple of companies that hire resume writers.
No.11 Translate Documents
The demand for translators is rapidly increasing as companies and individuals interact with each other around the world regularly. You can earn money by translating documents online. You can work for yourself, through an agency, or find your freelance projects on UpWork and Fiverr.
No.12 Design Websites
If you have the ability and knowledge to design websites, you are sure to find no shortage of work and ways to make so much money doing it. To create and design websites, you must possess a strong understanding of HTML and coding.
Even if you don’t know how to code, you can learn it for free via Code Academy. If you are looking to start earning money by designing websites, create a few of your own first, add them to your portfolio. This way, prospective clients can see what you are capable of before they hire you, and if you are good they will hire you.
No.13 Become a Transcriptionist
If you are looking for a flexible and legitimate work-from-home job, transcribing could be for you. To be an online transcriptionist, you have to type out audio that you are given. Successful transcriptionists are keen listeners and are fast and accurate typists.
You can become a transcriptionist in many fields, including the medical and legal field. You can either work directly for a company or find freelance opportunities on Upwork.
