Hello, my name is Tabitha George and I’m a guest blogger. Two years back I had a baby girl and realized that managing full time office work and raising a child is not as easy as many people made it seem like. I couldn’t really find a good daycare and couldn’t wait to rush home every day from work to spend time with my daughter. Soon, I realized that I couldn’t do justice to both roles – that of a sales representative and a mother, and decided to quit my job.
That decision forced me to think of ways by which I could make money by sitting at home. Then I found some brilliant ideas that gave me a head start. So I thought I’d discuss these ideas with all you new moms, teenagers looking for a part time job and students looking for more ways to pay the bills. Hope these ideas inspire you like they inspired me!
1. Online Freelancing: If you have good writing skills, or a creative mind and an observing eye, this is a great option for you. You can do any job in the field of online freelancing related to your area of interest. You can work as a freelance photographer, freelance journalist, freelance content writer, freelance translator and much more. Some companies offer a monthly package salary while others will pay you according to the number of jobs you do per month. As you create a niche for your work, you can also start demanding the kind of pay that suits you, after a few years.
2. Social networking sites: Are you a Facebook freak and you love to spend your most of your free time on it? What if I tell you that you can spend more time on Facebook and can earn through it? Doesn’t that sound great? There are various applications on Facebook through which you can easily make money online. Some of those applications are My Merch Store, Café Press, Ether, Music Blaster, Shop it, Flame Tunes, Tradebit etc. With the help of these applications you can sell your music, gadgets, products, land and much more. Moreover, you can even give advice to a number of people and make money online.
3. Paid online surveys: This is another method which will help you a lot to utilize your time in a good way and also to make money online through it. Filling surveys online is getting more popular every day as a medium of making money by sitting at home. For this, you just need to visit some good survey companies like Survey Mastermind or a few others that you can easily find on Google search. All you need to do is create an account and get started. Then you will keep on receiving lots of surveys which you will need to be filled out in a specific time period to earn money. However, remember to create a special email ID just for your work so that you can easily be notified when you get a new assignment. The faster you respond to these surveys, the more money you will have in your bank account.
