How to make money from home


Whether it's to earn extra income or because you've been laid off, making money from home is a great way to supplement your income. Thought there was no way you could work from home? Not true! There are many different ways to make money from home. Here are some ideas for how you can start earning an income in your spare time:

Taking surveys

One way to make money from home is by taking surveys. Surveys are a great way to make money because they're easy and can be done anywhere, even while you're watching television. Taking surveys is a great way to supplement your income, because it doesn't take much time or effort on your part.

The best survey sites are paid survey sites, such as SurveyJunkie, Toluna and e-Rewards (which also offers sweepstakes). These survey companies pay their members cash for completing surveys in return for their opinions about products and services. Paid survey sites vary in terms of what they offer; some have more opportunities than others; some have higher quality opportunities than others; some require more outlay of time than others; etcetera ad infinitum!

Selling handmade products on Etsy

As a millennial, you might be thinking: “Sure, mom and dad — I'll make money from home.” But how? The options are endless! Etsy is one of the most popular marketplaces to sell just about anything, but there are lots of other places to list your handmade products on the internet as well.

Here's what you need to know about each so you can decide which ones are right for you and your business:

Etsy: Etsy is a marketplace where people go to sell things they make themselves (handmade products). It's super easy to set up an account and start listing your items; all it takes is creating an account with Etsy ($0), uploading photos of what you're selling (or adding them later), writing descriptions, setting prices in USD or CAD, then getting started! If someone purchases an item from your store on Etsy, that customer will pay directly through their credit card or PayPal account without having any contact with you unless there are problems along the way like shipping delays or returns – but neither party needs to know much about each other beyond product descriptions. As soon as payment clears from this first sale (usually within three days) then it'll appear automatically back into your bank account once per week after 30 days total regardless if anything else sells during those initial 30 days - which means immediate cash flow!
