There is a WIDE range of ways to making money from home! A person truly could turn almost any passion they have an income maker. I personally have been making money from home for going on four years now. The more time I spend online the more ways I find to make even more money. I have a long list of things I’m planning on diving into feet first when we get our unlimited Internet in 2016 that have had to sit on the back burner because I haven’t had the Internet strong enough to do it. I am excited to have the chance to share some ways to earn extra income from home for yourself. Hopefully, these ideas will help you make more money in 2016 for you and your family too.
Making Money from Home Is Easier Than You Think
Start a Blog
The latest trend has become starting a blog to make money. Many people think this is a get rich quick type of thing to do, but I’ll be the first to say it’s NOT!!
You make money blogging by:
This is just a small example of how you can make money with your blog. There are plenty more ways that can be added to this list! These are just the primary ways.
Work as a Virtual Assistant
Be a virtual assistant for bloggers.
There are an LOT of tasks that go into running a blog smoothly that a reader does NOT see. Every big blogger I know has 2 or more virtual assistants that work for them. They pay their virtual assistants anywhere from 10.00-25.00 (sometimes more) an hour to handle these small, but vital tasks. (Some bloggers offer internship in exchange for learning these skills, and usually that leads to full-time income for a virtual assistant. The more traffic and money a blogger is making the more they NEED a virtual assistant.)
Some of the Tasks Bloggers Outsource:
Handling Social Media Management – It’s vital that a blogger is active on social media accounts. However, they can’t always be around to manage it. So, they hire someone else to schedule out content for them or even post things for them on their behalf to show some activity on their social media accounts. There is a WIDE range of programs that we use to help make our lives easier, but it’s still time-consuming to even use those programs.
Getting/Creating Images – If you are good at editing photos or even making photos, you could be making a killing doing that for bloggers. There are much more bloggers like me that aren’t photo savvy that hires someone to create those stunning images you see on their blog posts.
Doing Backend Activities on Websites – If you’re tech savvy and have web design/coding skills, there are plenty of bloggers who seek out help with fixing their issues on their blogs.
Become a Website Designer– We’re ALWAYS on the hunt for a solid website designer. Even if you just want to make headers and logos for bloggers, there’s a strong need for that.
There are MANY companies that hire virtual assistants. You can work as a customer service agent both via phones or online chat for them.
Start Your Own Business

You can also use these five smart ways to make money on the side too. If you’re someone who is crafty, you can make your own crafts and sell them on Etsy.com.

Earn Money Doing Small Tasks
There is a wide range of ways to earn easy small bits of money online. Of course, all of those ways to do add up. In fact, this is where I started with earning money online. Then I figured there had to be a better way, but sometimes you only have time to do the small things. These sites will help you earn money for making purchases online, using their search engines, and answer simple one question polls. Plus, you can do surveys and earn even more money faster.
