Due to the internet and social media, it is now easier than ever to earn money from the comfort of your own home, which can provide added flexibility to your lifestyle and give you extra cash when you need it most. These moneymakers aren’t necessarily going to become your full-time career, but they can easily become an extra, on-the-side, part-time job.
In recent years, the craze of bingo has made a comeback, in part due to innovative reimaginings of the game like Bongo’s Bingo, as well as the birth of online bingo sites which are proving ever popular. Many people who don’t already play online bingo sites often don’t realize that you can actually earn yourself a fair amount of cash through playing on these sites. Of course, you should always be sensible when gambling online, and check that the site you play with is safe and reputable, but ultimately online bingo is super fun and easy way to potentially make yourself some money from the comfort of your own home.
Selling Old Stuff
We all have at least a couple of things lying about the house, if not many, that we no longer want or make use of. Instead of letting these things lying about the house gathering dust, pop them up for sale online to earn yourself some extra money whilst simultaneously decluttering your space. Ebay, Depop, and even Facebook are easy places to head to advertise your no longer wanted treasures. Always make sure you take good photos of the items and include any helpful information in the advertisement. Often people will pay extra if the item is still in its box, or has its original labels on, so be sure to mention this selling point if they do.
Selling Home Cooked Meals
Lately, it has become a real trend to sell your home-cooked meals online, largely through the Facebook marketplace. From curries to roasts, cooks are using Facebook to sell hot dinners prepared in home kitchens. As many people want to enjoy healthy and delicious home-made meals, but don’t always have the time or the ability to make them themselves, there has become a real demand and market for home cooking. In fact, there are thousands of listings placed every day on Facebook for home-prepared meals, with an increasingly wide variety of dishes out there. If you love to cook and happen to be pretty good at it too, then this could potentially be a great money earner for you.
Blogging & Vlogging
Blogging and/or vlogging can potentially be a great way to earn significant amounts of money online. Not everyone hits the jackpot of course, with some bloggers/vloggers proving to be more popular and successful than others, but oftentimes hard work pays off in the blogging world. If you produce great, high-quality content, people will want to watch and read it. There are lots of great stories out there of successful bloggers who make money blogging, with some successful bloggers and vloggers making thousands of pounds each month alone. However, there are now thousands of people out there doing this sort of thing, so competition is pretty tough. Finding a niche is probably your best bet, which is often a lot easier said than done, but it’s still well-worth at least trying out as most of us already have the necessary equipment to get started… our phones!
There are a lot of survey websites that will actually pay you, in cash or gift vouchers, for your opinions. These surveys can be on a wide range of different topics, from what you’ve been watching on television lately to what you think about the state of British politics. The vast majority of websites have a limit on the number of paid surveys each person can complete though, so signing up to a fair few is essential if you are serious about earning yourself some extra cash. It’s also really important to make sure you only go with websites that are legitimate and trustworthy, as sadly there are many out there that never actually make the promised payouts to users. With a quick search around on Google, you should easily be able to find out which survey websites are good, and which are best to avoid. There are plenty of reviews out there.
Making money from home has never been easier, and a lot of these cash earners are actually a lot of fun on top of holding the potential to top up your wallet a little each month. Gone are the days of having to wash cars for extra money (if you want them to be)— the internet now provides us with a multitude of money-making opportunities.
