1.Taking Surveys

While this is not a get-rick-quick scheme, it can definitely earn you a small amount of money with little effort. Some surveys take longer than others, but for the most part are relatively easy.

Here are a few survey website companies to join:



2. Blogging

Again this is not a get-rich quick way, but it is still a way to earn money from home. Making an income from blogging takes a lot of time and dedication, but can definitely pay off in the long run.

How do bloggers make money? Well they make money a few different ways.

One way is by having advertisements on their website, and based off the number of views and/or clicks the ad gets, they get paid a small amount. Another way to make money is by affiliate links.

Affiliate links are links where if someone buys something after they clicked on a link, the blogger receives a commission.

A third way to make money is by sponsored articles where a brand may reach out to the blogger and ask them to review a product in exchange for money.

I do just want to reiterate though, it takes a long time to get to the point of making a full-time income.

3. Etsy

Are you crafty? If you are good at making things, selling things on Etsy is another way to earn money from home.

While Etsy does take a small commission of your product, it is one of the fastest growing marketplaces for homemade goods.

Now with etsy, the sky is the limit. You can sell anything from a baby blanket, to a painting, or even digital art or graphics.

4. National Consumer Panel

Another way to earn money from home is to sign-up for National Consumer Panel. This works in that you scan all of the barcodes for items that you buy each time you buy something.

Each shopping trip gives you 150 points, plus you can also take surveys that can easily land you an additional 150 points.

You might be asking what’s so good about these points? Well…long story short you can redeem them for gifts cards, or even some really cool prizes.

Here’s a breakdown on the points:

21,000 points = $25 gift card to Amazon, Overstock.com, or Itunes

41,000 points= $50 gift card to Amazon, Overstock.com, or Itunes

5. Stock Photography

While you don’t necessarily have to be a professional photographer, you can still earn money from home by selling photographs to places like shutterstock.com.

Many bloggers, myself included, like to ease of finding stock photos for articles. This is where you could submit pictures and they pay you based off of how many people buy your picture.

Places to sell stock photos:


Deposit Photos

Adobe Stock



Since these places pay you based off of how many people buy your image, you are going to want a high-quality image.

Some of the most popular pictures among bloggers would be the workspace stock photography where it shows a beautifully arranged desk with notebooks, and a computer or something similar.

6. Freelance Captioner

Another way to earn money from home is to work as a freelance captioner. A freelance captioner watches videos and writes the captions you would find on videos.

One place you can apply to is called Rev.com. Now, take your time as they are selective and want someone who can spell things correctly, and properly edit the captioning.

They have a test you have to take that you must complete within 3 hours, so I would strongly suggest you only start the test when you have ample amount of time to focus on this.

7. Amazon Mturk

This is another little side job that you can earn money from home, but it’s not something you are going to be able to get rich doing. Many of the jobs involve typing products and amounts from a receipt onto a software, some are also captioning, and some are testing websites.

Each job pays pennies, sometimes more, but really it’s not going to give you much money.

8. Freelance Writer

Do you like to write, but don’t want to hassle with the mechanics of a blog? Well, you could still earn money from home by writing for other websites.

Some companies will pay anywhere form $25-$150 if your article is accepted. Here’s a list of a few websites that pay (if accepted) for freelance stories:

Wow! Women on Writing – according to their website, they pay anywhere from $50-$75

Strong Whispers-according to their website, they pay $50

Cosmopolitan-according to their website, they pay $100

College Humor– according to their website, they pay $35

9. Youtube Star

Okay, so youtube is for the vloggers. Are you a great public speaker or can put a spin on something that can get you lots of views?

Maybe even just reviewing products or unboxing items, these are all ways you can use Youtube to earn money from home. Like blogging, this method will take a lot of time and dedication to start earning money.

  1. These are great ideas! I was familiar with some but not all, and I’m very intrigued by the National Consumer Panel. I also use love selling my clothes on Poshmark to make money, especially the ones I don’t wear anymore

    • I have definitely seen a lot of Poshmark commercials on TV lately, but I have never tried it. Will definitely look into this! I really love National Consumer Panel. It’s fairly easy and you can earn some great rewards or gift cards.

  2. Great info! When I first had my kids I was endlessly searching for ways to make a living while staying home with them. I appreciate all the good ideas here!

    • I know what you mean Des. When I first became a stay at home mom, I searched everywhere online to find ways to earn money. There are a lot of scams out there, but there are also some legitimate ones!

  3. The content creating/diy options all sound like fun ways to make extra money. That’s something I would love to get involved with.

  4. What great ideas 🙂 I have never heard of a Freelance Captioner but I really think I would enjoy something like that, I am always coming up with cheeky one liners or funny captions. I use my blog and commenting as a outlet but who knew you could get paid for doing that…..I might make some money yet!!! Sign me up!

    • Thanks Jen! The freelance captioner is actually where you write the captions to the audio from a video, but I’m sure they have a job somewhere that creates funny captions to photos. I will have to check ;).

  5. I am going to have to check out those stock photography places. I use to have one on my phone years ago that paid decent, but of course going through phones you tend to lose it. 🙁 Thank you for the list!

  6. I’ve done surveys for years to make some extra money. One of my favorite sites right now is Branded Surveys (they used to be Mintvine). I also use Prolific.ac, Mturk, and PaidViewPoint. I usually get between $100-$200 a month doing it. I tried stock photography but a lot of my photos get rejected so it’s hard to build up a good portfolio on there because, from all the research I’ve done, it takes a lot of photos to make any decent money. I have sold a few photos though but not enough to even reach the cashout limit so I doubt I’ll that money any time soon. lol.

    • Wow Kristy! Sounds like you have tried quite a few ways to earn money from home. I agree with the stock photography comment, it does take a long time to make money. I hadn’t heard of a few of these survey companies before, so thank you for sharing!
