4 Ways To Make Money From Home

Being able to have a job – whether it is your main job or a side-hustle to earn you some extra income – that you can do from home, is beneficial in so many ways. Not only do you save time and money in the commute, but you can revolve it around your family and lifestyle as well. Which is why most mums prefer a job that allows them to work from home and set their own timings. 

So, without further adieu, here are 4 ways to make money from home…

Blogging, Freelance Writing, Copywriting

If you are good with words and enjoy writing, there is a range of writing-related work you can do from the comfort of your home. All you need is a laptop or computer and an Internet connection. You can become a freelance writer or copywriter, either working as part of an agency that will send you assigned work every week, or you can promote your services through your own website or through word of mouth. 

If you want to fly solo in the writing world, you could also consider starting your own blog, especially if there’s a subject or niche you are passionate and knowledgeable about. Bloggers can make money through ads on their blogs, affiliate marketing or sponsored content through an SEO Agency.

As A Virtual Assistant

Virtual assistants are becoming increasingly popular now, and there is a huge demand for VA services, which can range from basic admin work, keeping track of accounts and finances of a company, being a personal albeit virtual secretary and answering emails and scheduling meetings to something more on the creative side such as managing a company’s social media account or blog. There is so much scope of work as a VA and depending on the amount of time you have, you can choose to work for one client or more, or sometimes even choose ad-hoc work. 

Start Your Own Creative Business Or Etsy Shop

If you enjoy making or decorating things – be it clothes or homeware or art – why not consider turning your hobby into a business and making some money out of it too? You could advertise your products by creating your own website or start an online shop on a platform like Etsy.


Of course, depending on what you are making and on what scale you are making and selling the items, you might need a workshop or separate workspace, or may even need to outsource production. But why not start small and see where it goes? 

MLM Marketing

Another option for a side business is MLM marketing or multi-level marketing. All you need is a genuine love for the products you are going to be selling, and a good knowledge of their benefits, and of course, good salesmanship skills. You wouldn’t have to go door-to-door selling; it’s all about marketing the products via your social media, through whatsapp groups and through word-of-mouth. MLM marketing can sometimes bring in a good passive income.
