The one thing that I love about the gig and app economy is that it is easier to make money working from home.
As more businesses are turning online new job positions are being created.
Having several different side hustles allows more control over finances.
So, I am not dependent on one source of income.
For example, I have my blog, sell stuff online, and do remote work for a local business in my city.
Today we are going to go over 9 ways you can make up to 1,000 a week working from home.
Interested in giving your opinion to help companies improve their products and services?
With beta testing, you can give your opinion of the websites you visit. Uber Testing pays you $10 per test. But, to do this, you need to visit a website and complete various tasks. While you are testing you will also be recording your response.
On average the test takes 10 to 20 minutes to complete. Website owners want to know what users think when they visit the companies website. With beta testing, you give your initial honest reaction.
The beta testing allows the developer to make it easier for people to navigate on the site.
Teach Kids English
There are people all around the world who want to learn English. Being taught by a native speaker is an important part of the language learning process.
Instead of them having to travel to a country to learn the language they can learn online. With teaching a language online you get to make your own hours.
Which gives you the freedom to work as much or as little as you want. It also allows you to make connections and meet interesting people.
Camply tracks the time you talk with students per minute. There is no experience necessary to teach.
Qkids also connects you with over 800,000 young Chinese learners who range from ages 4-12. The pay range is between $16-20 an hour. Qkids is stricter than other language learning platforms. You need at least a bachelor’s degree to teach on the platform.
Interested in flipping items online?
Retail arbitrage is the act of buying a product for low and selling in higher than what you paid. The item you buy is typically on clearance or sale then you sell them full-priced online.
Additionally, some people buy stuff on craigslist or Facebook then flip it to eBay.
Here are a few places you can sell.
Amazon is known for its retail arbitrage. Many times you will see a price higher on amazon then you will ever see in the store. Much of amazon inventory is not amazon’s but Amazon Fba sellers.
These sellers then ship their inventory to the warehouse. I have done it and have made 500 in a month with only 3 products.
It sounds crazy, but people are willing to pay the extra cost because of the 1-2 day shipping.
There are few sellers who have turned Poshmark into a full-time job by flipping items. Check out this article on how you can get started flipping items on Poshmark.
Teach a Course
This requires more work to start off. There is money to made teaching people skills. People love to learn even if they do not like traditional schools. If you have a unique skill; online there are platforms that will allow you to make money.
With skillshare, you can make money by uploading your course. Skillshare is a passive way to make income through your course. There is not any extra marketing you have to do.
Udemy is another platform like skillshare. You don’t have to have a following to make money. There are 1000s of people who already use these specific platforms. But, I would recommend posting courses about topics people are interested in.
Teachable is a course creation platform that allows you to price your course any way you want. The only catch is that you have to put in more work with not only creating your course but marketing your course.
Yet, the earning potential is unmatched. I have taken courses from instructors who make 6 figures because of the marketing they have done.
If your topic is in demand people will pay for it. Let’s say you already have a skill in selling on Poshmark or doing freelance work. You can market your success and experience to people who want to expand their skillset.
Get paid for referring products to people. If there is a product or service you love you can make money by getting people to buy it or sign up.
