10 Sources of Income That You Can Earn From Home

Do you have some extra time to kill and need another source of income?

There are several ways to generate a secondary source of income without leaving the comfort of your own home. It’s surprising how many home employment opportunities exist. Anyone with a few hours to spare can earn extra money.

Check out these ways to stay at home and earn money in your free time:

  • Freelancing. With the capabilities of the internet and associated technologies, working from home is a snap. Whether your talent is writing, graphics, building websites, or voiceover work, there’s no end to the amount of work available for a freelancer giving you the ability to add as little or as much additional income you want.
    • No matter what your skills might be, there’s someone out there looking for you. There are many online freelance sites that you can look into where people post jobs that they need done.
  • Telemarketing. Any place with a telephone is suitable for your telemarketing headquarters. It’s a job that few enjoy, so there are usually employers looking for callers. If you have a pleasant voice and can deal with rejection, telemarketing can be an easy and flexible way to earn some money.
    • This may not be the best income option for you if you still have little ones at home as you are likely to have a lot of background noise. Most telemarketing jobs will require a quiet environment to make calls from.
  • Grow and sell vegetables. Okay, you might have to leave home to do this. On the other hand, you might be able to convince someone else to sell them for you at the local farmer’s market. Or you can pay them a portion of the income made from your sales.

    So if you have a green thumb and have room for a garden this may be a great option for you. Seeds are very inexpensive. Mother Nature will take care of the rest, minus weeding.

Are you a crafty person?

  • Make scrapbooks. Not everyone has the skill or time to make a custom scrapbook. Create scrapbooks for those who are unable or unwilling to do it themselves.
    • A few supplies are all you need to get started. Begin with offering your scrap booking service to family, friends, and neighbors. You might be able to generate enough referrals to stay busy without additional advertising.
    • Many places with have local craft fairs as well. They are another great place to earn some extra income selling scrapbooks or even scrapbook kits.
  • Data Entry. Most jobs pay for each entry or per project rather than by the hour. It’s a great job if you have a few spare minutes here and there. It’s super flexible and can work around any schedule. With focus and fast fingers, you can generate a reasonable income.
  • Tutoring. Part-time tutors can make $30 or more per hour. You might have to brush up on your geometry or Latin, but tutoring can be a lucrative way to spend your free time. Some people also make extra money teaching English as a second language online as well.
  • Translate. Are you skilled in a second language? There are many opportunities to translate conversations and documents. While certifications are required to translate for large companies and government agencies, they’re totally unnecessary for translating a love letter or a conversation on Skype or blog post.

Using your home to earn extra income…

  • Rent out a room. If you have the space to spare, rent out a room. A good roommate can be a blessing and help you cover the bills. This one is not something that I personally feel comfortable with as a single mother with children in the home.
    • However, maybe renting out the basement to another single mother may be a great idea – it can lower both of your expenses and you are helping out another single mother.
  • Host a party. There are parties for Pampered Chef, Scentsy, and numerous other types of products – and you likely know a friend who has an MLM business. While these parties are typically held in the homes of others, you can host the parties yourself.
    • You could also allow your friends to use your home as a party location, and then keep a percentage of the profits.
  • Sell ad space on a personal blog. Create a blog and then sell ads on your website. You can sell the ad space directly or sign up with Google Adsense. With Google, they’ll post relevant ads for you, and you’ll receive money whenever someone clicks on the ad.

Whether you’re in financial pain or just need an activity to fill your spare time, a secondary or part-time source of income could be the solution.
