In fact, i just bookmarked this piece of work to serve as a reference point for me. There is nothing more interesting as having time freedom to work on your pace and actually make money doing that . All you outlined in this article are highly resourceful. Thank you.

  6. I did not realize at all that Amazon hired for work at homes, that’s amazing and definately a trustworthy company unlike the tons of scams out there. Every one of your companies listed are genuine companies and no one should have any fear working for them. I think it is really tough to find the good guys out of the hundreds of bad guys on the internet, and you did a fantastic job with the list you provided. Truly impressive, and I didn’t even realize about some of the types of work you mentioned. You mentioned Swagbucks, I must say when I was in a really bad pinch (not so long ago) I relied on Swagbucks to make money for food. There is a bit of a wait to make enough, then wait for a gift certificate and it is like you said not a lot of money, but it sure pulled me through several times. I love Swagbucks still use it for my online shopping and purchasing gift certificates. Every bit counts! Nice article thank you.

    • Thank you for reading and sharing your experiences working with Swagbucks.

      I agree with you that there are many bad guys on the internet.  They never pay you for the jobs you have completed for them. Try Amazon, you may find some job that fit your schedule.

      For long term, earn money from home doing Affiliate Marketing is a good choice.

      I hope you can make some money from the information I shared in my article.

      Good Luck 🙂

  7. There’s a lot of scam sites out there trying to trick people into giving up their hard earned money promising riches from working at home. These are some great ideas to find legitimate work at home opportunities. I’ve heard of quite a few of these but becoming a transcriber is definitely a new one for me! 

    • Thank you for stopping by and leaving your comments.

      Be careful when looking for work from home job. Only work with legitimate company that will pay you for completing the job and most importantly never required to pay any joining fee.

  8. Hey Christine, 

    I really like this post. You really outline practical ways to earn money online. Do you have any estimates on how much someone can earn in each category? I would assume that there is a huge variance… I’ve heard of some millionaire YouTubers to YouTubers who make part-time income.

    I think my top favourite methods that you’ve posted about are: (9) Taking photos, (13) Blogging, (14) Building websites and (15) Affiliate marketing since those seem to be the most passive forms. I’m sure YouTube is probably one of the best as well.

    Thanks for the great summary here!

    • Thank you for reading and leaving your comments.

      How much one can earn from any category, depends on the amount of work done and the company offering the job.

      You heard it right. Some YouTubers makes millions of $ and some not making much. It all depends on the topics and the audience. If you start a YouTube channel, you never know how far it will go….

      If you choose to work on any of the passive ways of making money, I wish you good luck and much success.🙂
