Earning extra income or simply ditching office life is something many more people are looking to do in the current digital age. The growth of people now working from home has risen greatly the last few years, as this has now become more and more accessible. The question for many is what options are there to be making money from home? Here we cover a list of some of the most popular ways.
1) Matched Betting
This is a very simple idea but one many fail to take up. It can be done through using bookmakers and betting tips sites such as www.sportytrader.com/en/, in which you can then sign up the bookies and take advantage of their free bet offers. The ones on the Sportytrader page include up to a £50 bonus on 22bet and up to a £100 on 1xbet. In many cases you stake the free bets and then lay the selection on Betfair for example. This can ensure you are winning either way.
2) Airbnb Host
Another simple option could be to rent a spare room you have in your house on Airbnb. By listing one room out in a home, it has been shown that you can pay up to 81% of your rent off each month through this.
If you have previous customer service experience and are a well organised skilful communicator, then this could be a good option for you. Many companies outsource their cold-calling campaigns to third parties, who then hire home based workers to place the calls. This means you could earn and this is usually based on incentives and commission, so this can be a good amount based on a positive performance. Examples of companies hiring include Indeed and Intrep.
4) Taking Surveys
There are now a large number of opportunities available to make money from home by taking job surveys for legitimate companies. At the same time it is important not to get caught out by scams, that are common across the web. Through these surveys you can pick up cash, gift cards and other prizes. Some of the legitimate websites which offer this are npdor.com, surveysavvy.com, viewpointforum.com, greenfieldonline.com and mysurvey.com.
5) Editor, Writer or Proof reader
Good writing is always in demand and there are so many opportunities to make money through this. Good freelance writing websites include the likes of Journalismjobs.com, upwork.com and mediabistro.com. You could also go to sites such as editfast.com and pick up work if you have experience as a copy editor, writer or even simply for proof reading.
