You can start a blog about almost anything- mommy blogs are popular, or you could blog about another area that you’re interested in.

The main way to make money with a blog is to have a target audience in mind (a niche) and to write to solve their problems. Write helpful, in-depth posts that meet a need.

You can monetize your blog by displaying ads, promoting products and services for a commission (affiliate marketing), writing sponsored posts, and by creating your own products (e.g. an eBook, a guide, printables, or even a course).

The sky is the limit for how much money you can make blogging. If you are willing to learn and put effort in, you can for sure make money from blogging!

3. Babysitting/ Childcare

You could earn: $15+ per hour (per child)

If you love kids, offering babysitting or even running a childcare business from your home is entirely possible. This can work especially well if you have a child of your own to look after.

Offering childminding will give your own child company, and if you are already minding your own, why not expand and make this your job?

There are usually some regulations so check them out for the area in which you live. It’s possible that you will need some extra qualifications such as a first aid certificate. You will likely need to register as a child minder and have a home inspection.

It’s different in every country so make sure you check out what the requirements are for you.

4. Become an Online Tutor

You could earn: $20 per hour or more

There is a demand for online tutors across hundreds of subjects. This is perfect for those who have a specialist knowledge in something.

You can teach from anywhere- all you need is a strong internet connection.

Classgap are an online platform. They allow you to set the price for your lessons and they handle payments from students and payouts to you.

5. Teach English Online

You could earn: $10-40 per hour

If you are fluent in English and have a bachelor’s degree (even if it isn’t in education) then you may be able to start teaching English online. 

This isn’t as daunting as it sounds. Most (if not all) companies will provide the slides and teaching materials and the platform to enroll students. All you have to do is follow along!

Rates in this work are variable, but it can be well worth looking into, especially if you already have some experience.

7. Sell on Amazon (FBA)

You could earn: the sky is the limit!

There are huge success stories of people making money through the FBA Program. The process involves purchasing stock cheaply, getting it to the Amazon warehouses, and then creating and promoting your listing on Amazon.

It’s so attractive because you can sell products without having to worry about storage, packaging or shipping. Once you get your product to Amazon, you can leave it all in their hands!

It sounds easy, and it is to an extent. However, Amazon is an incredibly crowded marketplace and it can be hard to get your product even seen by customers.

Those who are successful have chosen their products carefully, have done their sums (you still need to buy the product and ship it to Amazon) and know they can make a profit on each item. They use keywords in their descriptions so they can be found more easily, and they market their products well!

But don’t be too deterred- if you have a head for business, then this could be for you, especially if you are willing to learn. There are lots and lots of videos teaching you how to be successful through FBA.

8. Become an Avon Rep

You could earn: $50++ per hour

The company works around you, allowing you to design your own life. Earnings are unlimited so you can do as little or as much as you want.

You can work either online or offline, or even a mix of both.

This is a great job for those who love selling and promoting products, and have a strong social network to get started with.

9. Make and Sell Digital Products

I’m in love with Canva Pro and use it all for all my designs. They have amazing templates that you can work from, a pile of photos and very cool fonts and features. Try it for free for 30 days with this link!

I’m a Speech and Language Therapist and have a lot of experience working in schools and creating my own resources. I love to create educational resources for teachers (especially speechie ones!) and sell them through Teachers Pay Teachers

I also love creating worksheets and powerpoints. Some other popular digital products you can make include: calendars, planners, organizers, informational documents, guides and templates.
