The dream of many people is being able to roll out of bed without having to worry about the morning commute. For those that work from home, it can allow quite a bit of freedom. Not having to commute or make small talk with the annoying person from HR appeals to nearly everyone. Working from home simply is not an option for some people. This does not mean that they cannot supplement their income from home online. The following are different tactics to help you make money online without having to leave the comfort of your couch/bed.
Sell and Resell
There are people who make great livings in making custom jewelry or stitching their own clothes. One great idea is to find the free items on Craigslist and sell them for a profit. After the holidays there are often TVs of all sizes due to new ones being purchased that people simply want moved. Many TVs might not fit in a car depending on size so many people offer a free TV to anyone that can haul it away. Buying and reselling things at a profit will take knowledge of the market but things like cell phones can bring in quite a lot of money due to the demand.
The life of a freelance writer has evolved immensely from chasing stories to being able to write for a blog seen all over the world. The need for quality content in all areas is always in need. This is because our generation is consuming more text, video, and other content than any generation before us. This means you have to separate yourself from the other writers by producing quality content in a timely manner. Companies will regularly work with freelancers who produce great work and help them hit their deadlines. This can even lead to full-time employment from home if you perform at a high enough level.
Sign Up For Online Surveys
This is not the way that you will make thousands of dollars per week, but there is money in online surveys. Companies take these surveys in order to produce products that consumers will be more willing to buy. Purchasing trends generally have to do with personality and income. This is why on many surveys they ask you your income level as one of the qualifying questions. The company might not care to market to the lower income groups as they do not have as much expendable income as high economic classes.
Test Products for Companies
Whether you are testing resume templates for a large staffing company or testing makeup, your input is extremely valued. Starting a blog is a great way to get companies to pay you for your honest review. As a blogger with valued readers, it is important to give an honest opinion instead of a favorable one. The company should know this up front as to not violate any FTC guidelines. Influencer marketing is becoming as important as ever for many brands. Establishing yourself as an influencer will take hard work, but it is more than possible. For Instagram, the right shout outs and hashtags can garner thousands of followers in a matter of weeks. The more influence that you have on people (based on the number of followers you have) the more you will be paid for a post. Real followers are important here as well as bought followers will not deliver on the sales goals of the influencer post. It might garner as many likes as the company wanted but at the end of the day sales are why you are marketing.
Staying at home and making money on a daily basis allows for quite a relaxing lifestyle. Supplementing your income weekly might even help you retire a few years early! Stop binging on Netflix and start earning when you are bored out of your mind!
