The nine-to-five office grind isn’t for everyone. Some people are more productive when they’re at home. Luckily, the internet has a way of providing new opportunities for almost everyone, especially SAHMs.
If you are looking for ways to earn extra income without sacrificing your time with the kids, here are online jobs you can get into:
If you have a way with words, freelance writing is a viable option that you should consider. A lot of industries are in need of writers especially when the products, services, or topics involved are niche. There is a wide variety of subjects to be covered such as travel, sports, fitness, housekeeping, and more. The write-ups needed usually come in the form of blog posts, journalistic articles, and online lists. Starting out, you can expect around $15 per post, but with more experience and better connections, you can make a lot more.
Blogs that generate a lot of traffic can be turned into a profitable side business. If your blog shares the same interest and direction with a company, they may be willing to pay you to run ads that link to their site. For example, if you have a home cooking blog, companies selling kitchenware may ask you to connect with them (or the other way around). Pay is usually based on how much people click on the ads via your blog and it ranges from $10 to $50 for every 1,000 hits.
A lot of people are in need of other’s help to stay organized. You can monetize on that by becoming a virtual assistant. From reading and responding to emails, scheduling meetings, managing websites, and more, it is a position that requires you to do just a little bit of everything. Rates usually start out at $10 per hour and can get to up to $30 if you are more experienced.
As technology develops so does the need for companies to go digital. Businesses and professionals are always looking to establish a web presence, and if they already have one, they are may be looking to update it. If you are adept at creating custom graphics, then designing online can be a lucrative source of income with a rate that averages about $45 per hour.
Your proficiency in English can be used as a means of income. Teaching and tutoring English as a second language is sought after in countries with locals trying to learn it such as South Korea or the UAE. Rates are about $25 per hour and can go north of that. It also might open doors for you to travel across the world.
A lot of people have things lying around their home that they want to get rid of, but they are too busy to do so. You can actually reach out to them and do it yourself. With various sites at your disposal, you can sell anything from appliances to mint condition toys, or you can create your own site for selling used clothes. As a seller, you can take a percentage off the total sales or have a “per-item” fee that varies depending on the value of the item being sold.
With smart phones developing more and more, apps play a bigger part in our daily lives. Developing one is another way of making money. There are some hobbies and niche areas where apps have no presence in yet, and acting on it can yield a profitable reward.
