How to Earn Money from Home!

earn money from home

I get a lot of questions and emails asking “How can I make money from home?”  This post is intended to teach you how to do just that.  Here are several ways that you can help contribute to your families finances from home.

Take Surveys

Now keep in mind that you won’t get rich from taking these surveys, but depending on how many you are able to do, you should be able to bring in a minimum at least $10 – $20 week.  This can really add up especially if you are trying to pay down debt or save for Christmas or a Vacation.  I always recommend setting up a separate email account just for your surveys. That way when you have some extra time (like when the kiddos are napping or you are watching TV), you can go into that email account to focus just on your survey offers.

Here are a few legitimate Survey Companies you can sign up with:

Sell Stuff

You would be surprised at home much stuff you have that you can sell.  Also if you are crafty (like to sew, knit, paint, etc) there are places online for you to sell your items.

Earn Money Online 

Did you know you can earn money just from reading emails, searching the web and shopping online?  Here are some of my Favorite ways to earn money online:

  • Swagbucks – Earn Cash (via paypal) or Gift Cards (Amazon ones are my Fav) just for searching the web!
  • Inbox Dollars – Earn points for reading emails. These points can be redeemed towards gift cards and more.
  • Cash Back Rewards – I always say, “If you are going to Shop online you might as well get Paid for it!”  When you shop online, make sure to shop through Ebates or ShopAtHome.com.  Both offer you Cash Back incentives for making your online purchases through them.

More Ideas:

* Join Nielsen Home Scan Consumer Panel:  You will Earn Points for Scanning your Groceries which are redeemable for electronics, household items, jewelry, toy, gift cards, and more.

* Become a Mystery Shopper (My buddy Cynthia told me about this. She was paid to go out to eat and go shopping! Unfortunately this is not available where I live so I wasn’t personally able to try it out.) 

* Tutor Online – If you have a degree or real world experience in a subject taught in school you can earn money by being an online tutor.  Here are a couple of sites to check out: Tutor.comTutoringservices.com

Let us know your how you Work from Home?!

I would like to hear from anyone that participates in the “Inbox Dollars” Do you get paid cash or are you awarded points that you have to accumulate? I participate in the Pinecone Research surveys and love it. I get paid $3 for every survey they send me.

Reply

Dannielle B. January 24, 2013 at 5:00 pm

I used to use Inbox Dollars but it wasn’t worth it…I never made any money and the amount of stuff they want you to do or buy to get any reward just didn’t equal out. I use Valued Opinions, Mommy Talk Surveys and Pinecone Research. All are very good sites to make a little extra cash or Amazon Gift Cards!

Anna Whiting June 3, 2013 at 10:29 am

I have used inboxdollars for awhile now. You won’t get rich but I average about 40 dollars a year. You get 2 cents for just clicking and opening an email. Some of the deals I have done to get the extra reward if Im interested

You can get cash or sent to Paypal but you have to accumulate $30 before you can elect a cash out. Seems like it has taken me forever.

Swagbucks is easy money. Not going to get rich but I saved them through the year and used mine to help pay for some Christmas gifts. If you sign up for swagbucks please use my referal code go to:
Swagbucks.com/refer/mom2003 any friends you refer you can earn points when they do up to 1000!!

Anther great opportunity and something different than all the other DS companies is J. Hilburn, which I’ve been doing and absolutely LOVING! JH is revolutionizing how men shop, and unlike others which require women/friends to have other women over to shop (don’t get me wrong- it’s a great time, but still often difficult with so many of them out there) and is often nights and weekends, J. Hilburn is one-on-one appointments with men, most often during the day at their office- a great option for a flexibile schedule while the kids are at school, but leaves you home when they’re off the bus and for family time! Compensation is generous with ability to earn $600+ car allowance, award trip, bonuses- and it’s an incredible product with little competition! If looking for something unique, I’d love to tell you more! You can reach me a 612.819.3219 or lynn.hoffman@jhilburnpartner.com
You can also find out a little more with the following article that appeared in Inc Magazine! http://www.scribd.com/doc/120990258/J-Hilburn-Business-Model-Inc-500-Profile.

Re: Mystery Shopping not being available in your area? There are a lot of companies worldwide. Check out the MSPA for more info. I’m not sure what the website is right now but you can do a search and probably find it or I can stop being lazy and get more info for you. It really helped me some years ago.

Several years ago I worked as a Mystery Shopper. You just have to be able to follow directions and if you need the money you have to be able to work consistently. I’d also recommend paying for the Mystery Shopper certification – you get better jobs that way and some companies ONLY want certified shoppers. I did this for about four years and while you can’t live on it, it IS enough to help earn some extra money.

I do the mystery shopping, the children and I love it. I have even been able to purchase clothes for the children, get reimbursed for them, and get paid for the shop. We also get paid to go out. I also am signed up with Neilson. It is easy and fun as well.

I have several home businesses or jobs. One is mystery shopping. Some companies make you do a lot of work for very little pay (intellishop). You need to check out job slinger. They are a One Stop place for many different legitimate companies. I am not MSPA certified and I can have several jobs a week if I want them.

My favorite MS companies are Maritz, BARE Int’l and Consumer Measure.

Another good place to go is Mturk. A lot of the stuff doesn’t pay well, but if you can type quickly, the transcriptions are good moneymakers. In the spirit of full disclosure, I do work at SpeechInk, one of the transcription companies there, but I started as a transcriptionist myself and worked my way up to being a customer manager. But they have short videos that can be done here and there and it really adds up. Before I was a customer manager, I paid all my bills that way, actually.

I’ve tried Inbox-dollars, I’ve made over $50 but I couldn’t deposit or cash the check said it was fraudulent. But shopping on line is the easiest way to earn money, I use Ebates, and SmarterBucks, to pay down my 30,000 Student Loan. I make enough shopping online, I make my monthly payments plus a little extra just with Smarterbucks!

I am an Origami Owl Independent Designer. We sell completely customizable Living Lockets. Recently, Origami Owl got rid of the waitlist to join as a designer. It’s a fun way to make extra money. Personally, I do it on the side for cash, but I have some ladies on my team who do it as their full-time job. The commissions are some of the highest commissions of Independent Sales. You can earn 50% on most of the products and 30% on the rest. The income is really depends on how much time you are willing to put into it. I sold 1 Locket the other day and made $40 commission on it. It really is something to look into!

I’ve been working from home for a while now! My newest venture is with a company called Mary & Martha. It’s been really fun and fairly successful! We have beatiful and inspirational home decor and gifts!

Another venture my husband is doing is Solavei! While we haven’t worked very hard with that one, we are bringing in $70 a month just for signing up a few people. It’s $49 no contract cell service and if you sign up before 9/20/13 your first 3 months are just $39! Exciting company to be in. Our sponsors just went on an all expense paid cruise and are literally making over $3000 a month. Of course they are working very hard at it.

This is one of the most abundant minerals in the body which is essential to your health.
· Its price is also fair and reasonable as compared to the other two
products that have crazy prices yet it’s not all that desirable enough as anyone could ever expect it to be.

One of the companies I’ve signed up with wants me to order specific items to rate them. I would like it better if they sent me the items or gave me the money to buy those items to use for the survey. I haven’t bought anything, so I haven’t earned any of the larger points.

Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what
I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still
new to everything. Do you have any points for first-time blog writers?

I’d genuinely appreciate it.
