1. Become a Social Media Manager
By becoming social media manager, you can manage any company’s social media accounts and their activities. The primary purpose is to create awareness and increase the following of a certain brand. There is no restriction of working for only a single company; you can handle multiple clients’ social media management. It is worth earning $20 to $50 per hour if you are just an average professional.
2. Become a Social Media Evaluator
You have to evaluate social media activities of any given company. In this job, you are required to search for hashtags, videos, ads, search terms, and other things that are related to the specific brand field. You have to evaluate all these things and then report back.
3. Sell on Fiverr
It is a great platform to sell your services, and the starting price is $5. Once we saw a person offering his service to sing a happy birthday song in a dinosaur suit. Sound weird? It is nothing; others are much more mainstream.
Anyways, if you have skills like designing, developing, writing, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), voice-overs, transcribe, etc. Then you can sell any of them on Fiverr.
4. Sell on Amazon FBA
Who does not shopped on Amazon once in their life? Have you ever observed that whenever you purchase something, you also see the business name that sells the product to you? Basically, you can become a seller on Amazon and sell whatever goods you want to sell.
One of the Amazon programs is known as FBA, and it stands for Fulfillment by Amazon. With the help of FBA, you can source your products whether that is purchasing on clearance or wholesale. You can send them to Amazon, and then Amazon will ship your goods to customers. Yes, it cost some fee but still much more convenient than shipping yourself.
5. Sell Your Stuff on eBay
If you want to open an online store, then go to eBay as the preferred option. You can sell your own stuff from your home and earn through it. The products should be unique to a broader audience, and that is easily shippable. Easy shipping is the key to this business, as you would not like to waste your profit margin while shipping the product.
6. Sell Other People’s Stuff
If you think properly, then it is an excellent idea to sell people’s stuff and earn through it. You just require putting a little bit of effort and nothing else. Obviously, you would only get the commission of selling the product because it would be others’ property.
What you are required to do is to find people who are interested in selling items, but they do not have enough time or even interest. You can discuss with them the lowest price of the item and how much commission they will give you.
7. Start an Online Store
We talk about selling through Amazon, eBay, and others’ stuff. However, you can also make your own shopping online store and start selling the products. You can sell products in demand, but you have to market it well in order to make it successful. Once you begin retaining customers, there is some serious cash in this way of earning.
8. Virtual Assisting
You can work as a virtual assistant and work from home. There is a diversity in this work. You would not get bored as every day is different in this job. You can earn $15 to $20 if you are an average virtual assistant. Later, this position has the potential to make you earn $50 each hour.
9. Start a Virtual Bookkeeping Business
So, if you are comfortable with number games, and are ready to put some effort into finding clients, then why are not you thinking about becoming a virtual bookkeeper? This business has flexibility and good pay. By just giving a couple or more hours every day is enough to earn $100.
10. Freelance Writing
If you love to write and possess excellent skills in it, then there is good news for you. The jobs of freelance writing are in massive demand these days. You can earn hundreds of dollars per article. Once you become a known writer on marketplaces like Freelancer, Fiverr, People Per Hour, or Upwork then you do not have to look for any other job.
11. Become a Blogger
You can express yourself and earn through blogging at the same time. You are required to make a blog first and start running it. You just need to invest $15 to $20 in this business for getting a domain and hosting services. However, this is not a quick way to earn. You have to be patient while doing a blogging business. If you keep blogging, then it can become your full-time job gradually.
12. Write an eBook
Writing an eBook is not tricky if you are a good writer. However, for making money by writing an eBook, you have to be a good marketer as well. You can write it and publish it on Amazon. Remember, for continuous earning, writing only a single eBook is not always a good idea.
13. Start a Pinterest Business
Basically, it is not a business. You can support your existing business or ideas through Pinterest. Increase your following on Pinterest and drive all the traffic to your online store or blog is the name of the game.
14. Data entry
There is a broad variety of work on the internet. It includes putting the given data on Microsoft Excel and Google Spreadsheets such as typing documents and transcription. However, the earning is not satisfactory as you will get $7 to $12 per hour.
15. Customer Service
In this job, you have to take phone calls, answer online chats, and emails. There are many customer service jobs available online; you must look for them. You will need communication skills, quiet room and a headset for this job to earn through it.
16. Become a Freelance Researcher
As the name suggests, freelance researchers basically answer the question that others cannot or things that others cannot research due to lack of time. The job is diverse, and there is no specific window of earning in it.
17. Online Tutor
The online tutoring is the way to go if you are a teacher or have the potential to teach. There is a massive demand for online courses and teachers. It allows flexibility for the teacher and the student. The pay scale depends on the subject.
18. Write Resumes
If you do not have enough time to write or have some extra time to write, then you should write resumes. However, it can become your full-time job as well if you are good at it or possess good name in the market.
19. Mystery Shop
It is a fun job to get some extra bucks, free products, and dinners. Some of the mystery shopping jobs even let you do it over the phone.
20. Test Websites
You can make a lot of money by doing this job, but you cannot do it consistently. However, you can get a right amount of money for a short period of time. Basically, you have to test the usability of websites. You can get around $15 to $20 for a test.
21. Rewards Sites
Both sites like Inbox Dollars and Swagbucks are good sites for earning something extra. You can easily make $20 each every month without putting a lot of effort in it.

Nielsen Group owned the National Consumer Panel. It is a simple program; you earn rewards by scanning groceries every week. Just download the app, sign up, and then start working.
