I Love The Idea Of Working From Home!
Simple ways to earn money at home appeals to everyone. If you are a blogger or are interested in blogging you will want to read the bottom of this post for sure! An awesome resource is there for you. Below is a list of things you can do to earn money at home and still keep your current job! There is also a list of sources to use and jobs you can do at home if you want to find a different job and work at home.
Do you seem to always have your phone in hand? Why not earn money with that smartphone? Here are a few ideas you should try.
Take easy surveys. Marketers use surveys to learn how to market their products. That’s why you can earn money doing it.
Survey Junkie is a great survey site. You will be paid to answer your first email from them. There are also panels within Survey Junkie that you can join. I especially like YouGov. You will earn money and points faster if your answers on your profiles are consistent and complete. Some surveys expect you to buy something in order to get a gift card or make money. These do not!
Ready for a new career that can be done from home?
Become a Free Lance Writer or Transcriptionist from home. If you prefer to sit at your own desk in the comfort of your own home this is a great opportunity.
More companies than ever before are hiring Transcribers.

and more! The digital world has changed how most businesses operate.
Go to Transcribe Anywhere to see how affordable the courses are. Compared to college it’s a win-win. Make sure you check out the other info on the website besides the courses because there is an opportunity to try a free course to see if you like it and lot’s of info on what the job would be like. They also offer Proofreading courses which are another way to work at home. Go to Proofreading Anywhere.com.
If writing is part of your career….you should consider an app called Grammarly. I’ve used it for my ebook and for this website and I would be lost without it! Grammarly makes it easy to change wrong spellings, tells you when your grammar is wrong and teaches you why and how to fix it. It’s easy to use also.
Be a Virtual Assistant! Many websites need help keeping their websites up and running well. They also need help with posting regularly on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. Marketing is another area the virtual assistant can help companies with by setting up the ads on social media. These jobs start at the lowest, $20. and hour but usually pay closer to $30. and more. Go to Horkey Handbook to learn more!
If you decide to start your own business there is an easy bookkeeping system with a company called Go Daddy with minimal data entry. You can use it to keep all your transactions in order. It’s cheaper than paying an accountant to do it for you.
Shopping At Home?
If you work at home you probably do a little shopping at home too. Apps like Ebates and Swagbucks.com are great money savers, as well as Groupon! All of these apps give you a percentage off of what you’re buying in store and online, along with coupons! All these little opportunities to save a little add up to saving a lot! Check them out but don’t get overwhelmed, they have a lot of great options, I’m sure you’ll love them.
Allow your creative side to shine
The best way to earn money at home (in my opinion) is to have your own website or write a blog! It’s the best thing I ever did with my life. It has been wonderful to have my writing seen by millions of people and it’s a wonderful outlet to share the insights I’ve learned throughout my life. If you’re creative with crafts or DIY projects it can be a wonderful way to show them off.
The best place to start if you are interested in your own blog is a simple course showing you all the right tips. Knowing the right way to do the numerous tasks to running your blog will save you loads of time and money in the long run. Along with learning how to promote any products you may have to sell you will learn how be successful as an affiliate for other companies and more.
I recommend The Selling Company who has many of its courses on sale now. The selling company also has a course on how to make money selling things on Amazon. You can learn how to buy from wholesalers and resell the items on Amazon without ever sending any packages. Amazon does it for you!
When you are ready to start your website you will need to pick a company to host it. Bluehost is only $5.95/month! Build your site on the Cloud today! Bluehost is a good company to go with. Bluehost will keep your site up and be running all the time, and give it the speed customers want while they are reading your website. If you are planning on making money on your site the time it takes to load is important because often people will leave a site that’s taking too long to come up on their screen.
One of the best and easiest things to do to get people to your blog and be able to advertise for free is through the use of Pinterest! Not only is Pinterest fun to use it can be the one thing you do that makes you money. I had to learn a few more tricks about Pinterest before it actually worked for me. Check out this reasonable course from a blogger who went from .17 cents a month to 5000. dollars a month in one year. It’s called “Group Board Master”. Your ability to start making money and to grow your blog can start with her course.
Tailwind (click on the photo above) is a great time saver in setting up your Pinterest Pins. Tailwind schedules the pins you pick to go out at the times when it will most likely be seen by your audience (followers home feed on Pinterest). I noticed a difference in my traffic to my site almost immediately. The cheapest plan is all you need ($9.99 a month) to get started and they offer a free 30-day trial.
Another great scheduling site is BoardBooster. This one is strongly recommended by the Pinterest (Group Board Master) course above. These companies will pin for you daily so you don’t have to do it every day and you can work on the writing in your blog.
A great place to start to earn money from your blog is through shareasale.com This company handles accounts with hundreds of companies who want you to put their ads on your blog. Share A Sale has an easy to use website and will give you suggestions for how to market these companies on your blog. You have to apply to be an affiliate for each company but it’s easy to do. It is important to apply for companies that are related to what you blog about. This way you will experience more interest in the companies you are an affiliate for.
Shareasale is also a valuable resource for you to use for your own company. Shareasale is always open to helping you find affiliates to help you sell your own products.
