101 Ways to Make Money From Home

101 Ways to Make Money From Home

How you can Make Money at Home

It is possible to make money from home without joining party plans or selling your soul! Everything I have listed here has been done either by myself or by someone I know. 

Full disclosure, there are some affiliate links in this post for services I have used for a long time and know they work.

I also have 99 Side Gigs For Aussies which has the ideas plus how to get started AND how to promote it to make more. It’s your complete guide to do side gigs in Australia. Many of them can be done at the same time enabling you to make more money!

My preferred method for making money has been online. It’s easy, can be done from anywhere and enabled my family and I to travel a lot previously.

1. Blogging and Social Media

Blogging is the main way I make money online. I share my method in how to set up a blog and make money blogging. Specifically, I make money through sponsored posts, affiliate links, ads and selling my own products.  

Blogging resulted in public speaking, freelance writing, consulting and numerous other opportunities. I won international awards, landed book contracts, speak internationally, did coaching/mentoring and travelled extensively because of my blogs. You can find out more about me and this work at

My sites are hosted with SiteGround. To get started blogging I got hosting, bought a domain name, did a one-click install of WordPress through SiteGround then selected a theme, some plugins and got to writing.

To make a blog successful you need to be active on social media, market it well, be engaged and it takes a whole lot more work than most assume in the beginning, but for me it has been worth it!

To make money from your blog you need to have engaged traffic. You can then advertise through sponsored posts or links in your sidebar/header/footer, place affiliate links throughout the site, use adsense and use the blog as a platform to other methods of income.

2. Freelance Writing

Travelling the world, going to events, trialling products and writing about topics I love from anywhere is why I love freelance writing. A great grasp of grammar and your topics are essential to success.

Create a profile with a bio and sample work then pitch and get your writing out there to establish credibility. Read how to become a freelance writer for more details.

Some guest post positions pay $50 straight away, just follow their guidelines. For regular paying jobs look for staff writer positions, contact sites you like yourself and continually check classifieds. Check out the Problogger job board and UpWork to get you started.

Freelance writing has taken me to Indonesia, Vietnam, Fiji, the Solomon Islands (multiple times), Vanuatu, Slovenia, Austria and around Australia. Once in a lifetime experiences plus getting paid to do it all has been amazing. I’ve done a lot of financial and parenting writing as well.

3. Editing

When publishing my first book with Wiley, the editor they used worked from home. Books aren’t the only thing needing to be edited – newsletters, flyers, websites, grant proposals, articles, anything that is written could be edited. Look at sites such as Problogger etc listed above in freelance writing to get started.

Personally, I’ve edited a few books but more commonly websites and documents.

4. Fiverr

Creating graphics, video, logos and other online tasks are popular on Fiverr. Buy or sell anything you want for $5! $5 is the base rate however you can have upgrades such as 24 hour turn around or charge more than $5 straight up, it’s up to you.

5. Social Media Manager

With some experience and knowledge of various social media platforms, you can manage social media for companies from home. You do need to know what you are doing and having your own extensive social media presence helps a lot. The Australian Social Media Jobs group is a good one to check out for opportunities.

6. Virtual Assistant

With admin experience, you can be a VA (Virtual Assistant). Virtual assistants are becoming more common than in-person personal assistants. Your duties can include email, newsletters, schedule appointments etc just like a personal assistant but it is all done online.

Check out how to become a virtual assistant for tips on how to get into it.

Chris Ducker has a great resource on 101 things you can outsource to a VA to give you an idea of the kind of work you could get. To get VA work, try Upwork, Facebook groups such as Virtual Assistant Jobs or get active in business groups on Facebook. I see requests for VA’s all the time.

7. Sell on eBay/Facebook/Gumtree

You can sell things you already own and don’t use, sell on behalf of others or buy things to resell. When I started buying things to resell I made nearly $3,000 in my first month and over $10,000 in a month by my fourth.

For eBay, I like to check the completed listings to see the prices items have sold for. Then I take pictures, upload them in the eBay app and write a description.

I have a note on my phone saved stating I combine postage, payment must be made within 3 days etc to make it all quicker. It takes a few minutes to post each item and I often sell items for over 10 times what I paid for, such as $2 dresses for $30+.

8. Facebook Business

Create a Facebook page and group to sell items. You can import them, focus on vintage fashion or create things to sell. Quite a few businesses are on only Facebook or Instagram now. However, there is a huge risk of your page/profile being shut down if you are relying totally on one platform.

9. Write Reviews/Product Testing

Write reviews for magazines, newspaper, websites or do product testing for sites You can pitch directly to magazines or if you start a blog you can do reviews for different brands on your blog. Tell Me Baby is a site specifically for baby gear you can get paid to review.

10. Submit Jokes/Puzzles to Magazines

You can earn anywhere from $25 or $50 right up to a few thousand for jokes, stories and puzzles submitted to magazines and newspapers. Look up ones that feature unsolicited material and submit your jokes or stories online. Readers Digest, That’s Life and Take 5 are three which do this.

Image of cup of coffee on white linen. Text reads 101 ways to make money from home.

11. eBooks

Create an eBook on anything you like and sell it on your own site, on Amazon or create an affiliate program so others can sell your book. I like to use e-Junkie to sell my products. I have friends who have done amazing selling eBooks on Amazon only though, so find what works best for you. You will need to market it well though to sell it.

12. Buy and Resell Books

Buy books secondhand for a dollar or two and resell them. I’ve bought books for $1 and sold them for $20, one book I bought for under $25 and resold for over $70. Just the other week I bought one for $2 and flipped it quickly for $8.

13. Mentoring

Financial and business mentoring are two services I have personally offered but people seek mentoring in everything. Think about what you have experience in, market yourself well and you can mentor in just about anything.

To get started with mentoring you really need to have some expertise and develop credibility. Create a site, social media presence and be really clear on your message and how you can help others. You can check out my site with other services here.

14. Webinars

You can make money with webinars either by selling a program, eBook, product or service you have or by charging for the webinar. You need to have something people will be interested in and a way to promote it for this to be worthwhile.

15. YouTube

Love speaking or filming yourself? There is a lot of potential on YouTube and other social media once you gain a following. You can make money through ads, by other products being featured in your posts, promoting your own products and by reviewing things on video. Check out the highest-paid YouTube stars to get an idea

16. Affiliate Marketing

If you have a website, eZine, eBook or even on social media you can sign up as an affiliate for products and services then make a percentage of any sales made through your link. I generally sign up as an affiliate for products and services I have used and loved. Check the sites, stores and services you frequent to see who has a program.

Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing is the best course I have done. I put it off for ages and when I finally bought it then implemented the tips, my income went up significantly.

17. Resumes

The way I was taught to write a resume in high school is so far removed from how a resume should be. Anyone who has been out of the workforce for a while needs an updated resume but might not know the best way to present themselves.

If you have an eye for detail and describing talents, resume writing for others is easy to do. Having the skills to do selection criteria’s will help even more.

18. Create Media Kits

As blogging becomes more diverse and more people are vying for the attention of advertisers a good media kit has become a necessity for all bloggers wanting to work with the media and brands.

Many don’t know where to start and you could either create their media kits for them or sell templates for them to create their own. Media kits can be easily created on Canva or PicMonkey.

19. Graphic Design

Creating business logos, blog and website designs, business cards and more can be done from home with knowledge in design. Promote yourself or you could use options like 99 designs to try and get jobs.

Some graphic design work requires more knowledge and isn’t doable on the base level sites such as Canva. Be clear on your experience and skills with this.

20. Create Websites

Depending on your skill level, you can offer custom websites to clients where you create a website for them. This can be as simple as setting up a WordPress site for them and a theme, creating the pages they need on their site or if you have great website skills you can do a whole lot more.

21. Ezine

An eZine is online magazine which is emailed, much like a newsletter. It is more environmentally friendly than traditional magazines and easy for people to subscribe to. You can do monthly, quarterly or however often works for you.

22. SEO Consultant

Search Engine Optimisation helps websites rank better by selecting keywords or phrases to promote the site and help search engines recognise the site for those words and phrases. Being a consultant you will need knowledge in it, but like anything done online it can be done from home.

23. Consultant In Anything

Anything you have knowledge or experience in can be turned into a consultancy service, many of which can be done online. You will need to set up a website, social media presence, get networking and active in Facebook groups or wherever your target market hang out.

Plus, for most consulting, you will need qualifications and experience in whatever you are consulting about.

24. Life Coaching

In some locations, you will need proper qualifications to call yourself a life coach, at the very least you need an effective program and way to coach people. Life coaches help people sort out their lives, set and achieve goals and get past things that are blocking their progress in life.

25. Sell on Behalf of Others

If you like selling on eBay, Gumtree, Facebook or anywhere else, offer your services to others and either charge a flat rate or select a percentage of the sale to keep as your fee.

I did this years ago for someone who was closing their store and I have had my sister sell my stuff for me when I didn’t have time.

I have also seen requests on AirTasker and Facebook from people wanting to pay someone to list and sell their stuff.

26. Marketing

There are degrees in marketing and you do need knowledge in this area to be successful but a lot of marketing, especially effective social media campaigns can be arranged from home. I was self-taught though and had a successful social media company.

While I didn’t have a marketing degree, I had extensive experience and contacts which my clients wanted.

27. Public Relations

PR is different to marketing. PR is generally getting free exposure and liaising with the public. Marketing, while often lumped together with PR is paid promotions and advertising, very different skills. It sounds crazy to think public relations, as in relations with the public, can be done from home.

As a PR representative, you would be connecting people and businesses, creating campaigns for exposure and not necessarily out in the public.

28. Data Entry

With a computer and decent typing speed you can do data entry for a variety of businesses in the hours that suit your family. Doctors, lawyers and similar professions often require this sort of service. Most of the women I know who do this do it in the evenings after their kids are in bed.

29. Enter Competitions

It’s not guaranteed money all the time, often it’s not cash straight away, but it can be a way to make some money. Cash prizes are fantastic, but other prizes can be sold for cash.

Competitions on websites, through magazines and the radio can provide cash, tickets or great gifts. I have had the most success entering giveaways and competitions on blogs. We run them from time to time.

Check out this post with the best Aussie giveaways plus tips to win.

30. Ghost Writing

Technically, this can come under freelance writing but some people specialise purely in ghost writing. If you enjoy writing and don’t need to have your name plastered on all your work then ghost writing can be lucrative.

You write books, articles or anything the client wants and they put their name on it. It is up to you to decide your rates, since you will not be making money off the end product most ghost writers charge more than average freelance writing, especially for entire books.

31. Swagbucks

Swagbucks is just one of the many sites you can earn money with through daily polls, surveys, watching videos and using their toolbar to look things up instead of Google.

My favourite feature is definitely the search one. Use their search engine instead of Google and earn points. How easy is that? You can also earn points through their cashback program when shopping online.

32. Cash Back Sites

You shop online as normal and they pop up when you can get cash back. Honey also offers discount codes where possible.

33. Market Research

Participate in market research online through websites who specialise in this. Some pay $50 – $100 per hour. Read how to make $100+ per hour with market research.

34. Online Surveys

A plethora of sites exist for you to make money doing surveys. The pay is very low and often gift certificates instead of cash. We have a post on the best Australian online survey sites here.

35. Sponsored Tweets/Instagram

Instagram is significantly more popular for sponsored content than Twitter. Build an engaged following then sign up to Instagram and Twitter influencer companies to pitch for sponsored posts.

36. Stock Photography

Use your plain photos and sell them on stock photography websites. The competition is pretty tense and you might not make a lot, but a few dollars here and there is a nice surprise.

37. Transcribing

While there is software and outsourcing overseas, accuracy with transcribing is important. Many lawyers and doctors outsource this within their own country as the language barrier is difficult and software can be touchy and I know more and more bloggers (including myself), podcasters and social media entrepreneurs who require this.

38. This Is Your Life

Have people send or drop off photos and select songs they want the photos set to. You put the photos like a slideshow to music as a beautiful montage. It can be sent as a file or if they want on a USB. You can set up a gig like this on Fiverr.

39. Run Reference Checks

Outsourcing reference checks saves some companies a lot of time and money. You can do it from home for a fee for a variety of companies.

40. Create An Online Forum

A website with a forum or a Facebook group can make a lot of money either through charging a fee to join, though ads throughout the forum or brands wanting mentions/exposure to your audience. Pick a topic that works for you, get people interested, market it, get active and go from there.

41. Create And Sell A Course

Turn your expertise into a course with videos, emails and tutorials on how to do what you do. Use a great marketing plan when doing it, offer it as an affiliate program and you can do really well.

Image of iPhone, pink pencils, green earrings and notebook. Text reads 1010 ways to make money from home.

42. Newsletters

Create a regular newsletter and use affiliate links, advertising and sponsorship to make money. Similar to an eZine a newsletter is shorter and more to the point, usually used in conjunction with a website.
Alternatively, create and manage newsletters for other websites for a fee.

43. Adult Options

I grew up Mormon and had no idea of the options there are from selling your shoes or underwear through to being paid to get with someone and everything in between. It is completely your choice what you do.

I haven’t done any of it, despite numerous offers, but have had clients who were phone workers (I was a hairdresser and they told me all about it), others who sell their used items and now I know quite a few who work at the more involved end of the adult industry if you get my drift. (I’m trying to be relatively tame here).

44. Book Reviews

Review books on your own site or for other publications. Check before you submit anything if they accept unsolicited reviews. Many bloggers get pitched books to review. You can also sell the books after you have reviewed them.

45. Meaning Of Names Poems

Create poems based on the meaning of names or create a poem to a name. With so many unique spellings and names it is hard for some people to find something based on their name.

46. Podcast

Create a podcast to promote and sell your products or affiliate programs you are part of or get advertisers interested in being part of the podcast. I have ones I listen to every week and have purchased things recommended by them so it does work.

47. How to Series YouTube/Course

Create a “how to” series. Much like consulting, posting videos on YouTube or creating a course with this you teach people how to do things and sell it via DVD’s, CD’s, USB’s for people to use in the car or at home, videos online or create a whole package for people to access the information through a variety of methods.

48. Interview Skills

Have you interviewed people for different positions? Set up a service where you interview people and give them feedback on their answers, body language, clothing and tips to land the job.

You can offer it via Zoom or Skype.

49. Sell Your Artwork

Facebook, Etsy, Madeit and similar sites are all good to sell your artwork from. My nephew makes over $1,000 a year selling keyrings and he’s 9.

Whether you rent or own, there are ways to make money with your property. Having lived in a variety of cities, I have tested these out in each one. Check out how to make your mortgage pay for itself for ideas and an example using a home I lived in.

50. Get A Boarder

Lack of privacy can be an issue, but if you have a spare room a boarder or exchange student can be a relatively easy way to make money provided you select your boarder carefully, interview them, do background or reference checks and have an agreement in writing.

Check out 14 tips for renting your room to a boarder as well as how to use your home to pay for itself. I had the most success on AirBnB (read how to make money with AirBnB for tips), plus Facebook groups when it comes to renting out my spare rooms.

51. Rent Out The Garage

Storage units aren’t cheap to rent. If you don’t use your garage you could rent it out to someone looking to store excess belongings, a car, boat or even rent it out to a business. Ensure you have a solid contract and agreement in place for this.

When I was a single mother in Sydney, I rented my garage out to another single mum for $50 per week for her to run her dress business from.

Another time I rented my garage to someone to store some furniture in Canberra and another time when I lived in Melbourne, a guy stored his spare Mercedes in my garage. $50 per week each time.

52. Rent The Driveway

Rent it to someone to store their boat or caravan on. If you live near the CBD rent it to office workers for parking or if you live near a stadium or show ground you can rent it as parking space for events as they arise.

Where we lived in Melbourne, car spaces went for $250 per month for office hours/office workers and more like $100 a week for 24/7, that is car spaces belonging to tenants, not the private corporate carparks.

53. Garden Allotments

Lease garden allotments for people to grow their own flowers or herbs. It won’t make much money, but it is money for empty space. Alternatively, you can rent space in your yard like the driveway in tip 52 or rent it out for people to camp on.

54. Any Spare Space On The Property

Inside space such as an attic or under the house can be rented as storage space. Outside can be rented for cars, boats, trailers, caravans, RV’s or depending on the size of your space even for people to park on or let people run classes in your backyard.

56. With A Pool

You have the option of teaching people how to swim if you are certified or renting the pool to someone else to do learn to swim classes or aqua aerobics.

55. Airbnb

Rent a room when you feel like it. You set the rate and can choose dates you are available and you always have the option of saying no. You will be held to a higher standard than just letting someone rent the room and you need to provide basic amenities, but we’ve loved it whenever we have done it.

I have a full guide on how to make money with Airbnb here based on my experiences.

58. Rent Your Home for Movies/TV Series

Some programs require you to leave the house for the duration of filming, but put you up in other accommodation, so it depends on how you feel about strangers being in your home without you there.

If your home is unique or on trend this will work better than your average home.

56. Signage On Your Fence

Live on a main road? Offer your fence to local businesses for signage. They can pay by the month or lease it for 6 month periods. This is also a good way to get a discount on services you might use such as plumbing, roofing, solar panel installation and similar.

57. Sign In Your Yard

Just like signs on the fence, you can place signs in the yard for a fee. If you have the space there is also the option of erecting a billboard, though this is expensive. I know of a property where the council paid the owner to have a billboard in their yard and the owner didn’t have to pay land rates either.

58. Turn Your House Into a Haunted House for Halloween

Decorate the whole house and have each room produce a scare! Charge a fee and give people a tour. Get your friends involved and go all out. You could even sell pumpkins and Halloween treats in the lead up to Halloween or Halloween food on the night.

59. Family Day Care

With relevant qualifications and checks, caring for kids in your home can provide decent, regular income while you are at home with your children.

It is a fair bit to set up if you are doing it all legally, but for many mums it is the difference between having to go to work or being able to stay at home and with the lack of childcare in many cities, it’s a needed service.


Online and using your property aren’t the only options. We live at a time when making money from home is so easy! Here are some more ideas plus check out 99 Side Hustles for Aussies for ideas on what to do, how to do it and how to promote it..

60. Ironing

Ironing is something more people are outsourcing. You can offer to pick up and drop off or have clients drop their items off to you and pick up the next day. You can charge per basket or per item.

Be aware, if you do per basket specific it is FLAT basket. Too many people will overload the basket giving you three times the work for the same fee.

Promote if you are a smoke and pet free home as well. Offer an overnight service for an extra optional charge to make a little more.

61. Mending/Alterations

Taking up or letting down hems, fixing seams, replacing broken zips and bringing in or letting out clothes are cheaper options than buying new clothes. You can combine this service with the ironing as well.

62. Photography

Set up a studio at home to offer photography – portraits, family photos, boudoir, babies, anything you like. You will need experience, good equipment, editing skills and people skills of course!

Image of keyboard and notepads. Text reads 101 ways to make money from home.

63. Hand and Feet or Pregnant Belly Casts

Treasured memories are created around births. Hand and feet casts or prints and pregnant belly casts are a way for people to preserve those memories.

64. Spray Tanning

It only costs a few hundred to set up with a kit. Practice on friends and family first to get the hang of it, then set up space in your home to do it. Make sure you have insurance and are following regulations in your area.

65. Garage Sale

Just done a big de-clutter of the home and don’t feel up to listing everything individually online? Have a garage sale. See if neighbours are interested in getting involved and have a street sale to bring in even more people with less work.

Read how to have a killer garage sale for my best tips.

66. Sell Plants or Produce From Your Garden

Place a sign out the front, pot up plants, seedlings or sell produce you have grown. This can go well with a garage sale for extra money too.

67. Bees And Honey

Fresh honey is delicious and has many health benefits. It costs a bit to set up but you can make money from the honey and honeycomb. However, I don’t recommend using animals or bees to make money typically. Sell it if you are already doing it or wanted to as part of a more eco friendly lifestyle.

68. Create Things To Sell

Are you crafty, handy or arty? Create things such as clothes, aprons, hair clips, wooden puzzles, doll houses, craft kits, anything you can create you might be able to sell. I sold these at a market one year in the lead up to Christmas. It paid for my kids presents.

69. Illustrate Books

Illustrators get paid per book and provided you have good communication skills and talent, you can get the authors ideas into an image. This is something my daughter started doing at age 12 and now is expanding her portfolio and illustration requests at 13.

70. Sketch Homes

People can send you a photo of your home and you sketch it then post it back or they could pay extra for framing and you arrange it all.

71. Furniture Restoration or Makeovers

With some tools, knowledge and space furniture restorations are an option. You can pick up pieces for free that are dumped, give them a makeover and sell or restore pieces for other people. Pinterest has great ideas and tutorials linked for DIY furniture makeovers.

I’ve flipped items for $100 and $200 profits doing this with very little effort.

72. Tutor

Math, English, music, languages, cooking, anything. Everything we do we need to learn to do. Offer tutoring from your home either in person or do it online. Alternatively, places such as VIPKid have online tutors.

73. Become A Landlord

Buying a property is not cheap. You need to know what you are doing, do your research and be selective. Building a property portfolio takes time and patience.

Be aware things happen where you will need to make repairs, the property can be vacant or damaged and this should only ever be considered a long term plan. With a good agent this is something you can do mostly from home.

74. Turn Your Home into a Bed and Breakfast

Spare rooms? Rent them out and offer breakfast with it. Do it on a regular basis or turn your place into a genuine Bed and Breakfast, once you have approval, insurance and everything else you need to do it legally. Farmstays, older homes and places close to attractions all work well.

75. Real Estate Leads

Real estate agents sometimes offer compensation if you give them leads that result in sales.

76. Family Photo Compilations

Good with Photoshop? Photoshop families together. It is a popular gift from extended family who cannot all get together for elderly parents and relatives.

77. Accept Deliveries

Registered deliveries that need someone home during the day can be accepted by you and the client pick them up after work. Be very careful and specific about this as there is risk with unsavoury deliveries.

Also, if you happen to get a driver who isn’t delivering properly, you’ll end up with a lot of trips to the post office.

78. Audio Books

Audiobooks are popular among commuters. Reading a book out loud to be recorded and turned into an audiobook is a necessary service many authors and publishers seek out now.

79. Family History Research

More people are looking up their family history. If you have passion and knowledge you can do this for those who are time-poor but curious about their heritage.

80. Personalised Anything

Towels, plates, signs, backpacks, drink bottles, plates. You name it, anything can be personalised and for kids with unusual names, this is ideal and people will pay for it.

81. Parcel Forwarding Between Countries

Many products are cheaper overseas and I know of quite a few Australians who buy overseas, get their items shipped to a US address to take advantage of sales, coupons and lower taxes, then the person at that address forwards it to Australia for a fee and international postage.

82. Personal Training

You can get qualified pretty quickly and train people anywhere, including your own home. Boot camps are popular, especially if you offer a niche option such as Bootcamp for new mums.

83. Alternative Therapies

With qualifications in any sort of therapy such as Bowen therapy, naturopathy, massage, kinesiology and so on you just need a room at home to set up which can be done from your own spare room.

84. Psychic

Tarot reading, palmistry, astrology, numerology, crystal healing, reiki, all of it can be done from a room in your house or for psychic readings you can do them online via Skype or Zoom.

85. Teach A Class

Not everyone knows the basics such as cooking, sewing, cleaning, gardening, self-defence etc. Anything you know or have knowledge of can be taught to others. We ran classes on photography and marketing from a studio in our home. We set up a meetup group for each topic then had monthly topics.

Image of black notebook, black pen, white headphones and glasses. Text reads 101 ways to make money from home.

86. Mums and Bubs get Together

A weekly group could meet at your house, everyone pays a small fee and you provide tea, coffee etc. Set it up through Facebook or Meetup to make it easy.

87. Sell Your Hair

You need long, healthy hair to sell it so it is not something you can do regularly, it does pay though.

88. Pet Minding

For those going away they can drop off their pets to you for you to care for them. Most people prefer you to come to their home to care for their pets though, as it is less disruptive for the animal.

Check out this post for tips on pet sitting/pet minding.

89. Hire Out Items

Smaller items like chocolate fountains or chair covers right through to larger equipment can be stored in your garage for people to collect and return when they rent them.

90. Themed Dinner Parties

Once a week or month host a themed dinner party people book and pay to attend. How to host a murder, casino night or flashbacks are all popular themes.

91. Sunrise Photo for Baby Births

Got a nice view from your home? Take a photo every morning and promote it as a birth sunrise photo new parents can purchase.

92. Recipe Testing

Recipes need to be tested, some sites and magazines have specific kitchens for this, others outsource it. New authors get their recipes tested before they are included in the book too.

93. Beauty Treatments

Massage, waxing, eye last treatments, facials, manicures and pedicures can be done from home once you are qualified and the qualifications are usually able to be done through flexible options.

94. Party Plan/Direct Selling

Not all ‘party plans’ require you to host parties at other people’s homes. Some allow you to do it from home or just online. Alternatively, offer your home for people to host their parties if they don’t feel they have enough room etc.

95. Pets

Only if you are capable and responsible with the right permits, love and care should you attempt to make money from breeding animals. Other options for making money with pets is enter them in competitions, creating items for pets to use such as chew toys, fish tank extra’s, clothing for pets, pet beds or blankets.

96. Scrapbook For Others

Scrapbooks look cute but not everyone is talented, creative or have the time to do it. You can offer this service for a fee, buy items in bulk and create beautiful albums.

Alternatively, offer to create online albums people can have delivered. As in, you upload and design it all and it’s ordered online, then delivered to them.

97. Caricatures

If you can draw, try your hand at caricatures. People can send photos to you online and you send back the picture.

98. At Home Employment

Genuine work from home opportunities are rare unless you create them yourself or negotiate with your current employer to work from home. If you have a job that could be done part-time from home, talk to your boss and see what they say.

99. Airtasker

Airtasker is a site people list jobs they need doing such as editing, cleaning, resumes, writing, moving house etc. Select your area and look for things that are suitable to you. Check out this post for more information and advice.

100. Telemarketing

Some telemarketing jobs can be done from home. Usually, you need your own equipment, have some training then you are given a list of calls to make/clients to deal with. You work certain shifts and everything is recorded.

101. Look At Your Skills

What skills or talents do you have that you could use to make stuff from home? Offer online tutoring, videos, a blog, anything like that. What comes easy to us often doesn’t come easy to others so think outside the box!

Check out how I made $33,277.57 on the side in 12 months and how I work from home and remotely for more ideas and tips.

With any work from home idea you want to try check regulations in your area, what qualifications you will need, what tax implications there are, if you need to register as a business and get insurance if necessary, especially if people will be coming onto your property for any reason. You do not want something to go wrong and get sued.
