How to Make Money Online

Whether you're a stay at home mom looking to make more money, or a student trying to pay your way through college, looking into working from home is definitely worthwhile. Here are 7 simple ways that you can make more cash today!

Design services:
If you are good with Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator or any other design program, you can design logos and images for people who are willing to pay you , right from your couch. The possibilities are endless, since you could make templates, printables, blog buttons, logos and much more, with little overhead costs. You don't even necessarily need to know code to design, which is a common misconception.

Simple Coding: 

Along with design services you can offer coding, if you understand how to code. There are many sites online where you can learn to code for free and you can practice on your own sites. Codecademy is one of the best.

Inbox Dollars, QMEE, Bing Search, Opinion Outpost:
While many of these sites are limited to people who live in the states, they are a viable source of income for those who qualify. You can earn cash from taking surveys and searching online. It's fairly easy money and really adds up over time - although it shouldn't be your only source of income.

Fiverr, oDesk, eLance & Amazon Mechanical Turks:
There are plenty of marketplace websites that are easy to use to help get your freelance career started. I already wrote a Guide to Fiverr that you can check out. The great thing about these websites is that you can do a great variety of tasks on there. Everything from transcription, VA services, web design and so much more.

Blog Sponsorship:
We all know that it's possible to make good money off of sponsorship. Whether it is affiliate marketing ( where you're paid by clicks & purchases from links that you include in your blog), blog-to-blog ads, or business sponsored ads on your page. You can even write review posts and do sponsored tweets. There is definitely potential to make enough to live on over time.

Writing Freelance Articles:
You can find freelance writing gigs that pay anywhere from $5 to $100+ all over the net. There are numerous job boards and freelance writing sites that you can subscribe to, and then simply choose which articles you're qualified to write.

Start A Shop:
If you're more into doing things with your hands, you can start a shop that sells things like prints, journals, handmade clothes, decorations... anything you're good at. Etsy is a simple place to start and you can really make money from handmade businesses if you plan well.

Have you ever thought about working from home? Do you think it's a possibility for you now?


  1. Good ideas. I wish I knew coding. I tried to change code on my website. I didn't know what I was doing & deleted the whole thing! Thankfully I backed it up.

  2. There are so many opportunities with sponsorship now! Thanks for the tips!

  3. These are all such great ideas! I started an Etsy shop a little while back but it got too much to handle (hopefully I'll start it up agin in the new year!) Freelancing and designing are great ways to make a little extra money <3

  4. These are very useful resources! I absolutely love freelancing in order to make extra cash. I'm hoping to explore blog sponsorships and advertising in the future!

  5. Great information. I never really thought about making money from blogging unless it was direct traffic to a landing page where I sell something. Thanks for a broader understanding.


I read and get back to every single comment you leave. Thank you for making my day!
