Any Mom will tell you that money doesn’t grow on trees. If you’re in need of some extra cash, have access to the Internet and a few extra minutes on your hands you can stop worrying about mythical trees. Read on for some simple and sometimes fun ways to make money without having to leave the comfort of your own home.
Transform a Hobby into a Small Business
Share Your Knowledge as a Teacher
There are millions of people looking to learn a new skill or expand their knowledge on a particular topic and many of them are looking to the internet for solutions. With the help of Skype, online colleges and universities, you can offer your skills as a teacher to this growing market. You can sit back and teach a foreign language, show someone how to knit or become an online teacher in a subject you are an expert on without ever changing out of your favorite pair of sweat pants.
Every Clip of a Coupon Saves Money
Every Tuesday your mailbox is probably flooded with coupons. What if you could turn those coupons into extra cash? Well, you can and you don’t even have to be an extreme couponer to do it. Even casual couponers can save hundreds of dollars each month by spending just a couple hours clipping coupons and planning their shopping trips. While you won't exactly be making money, the money you save can be used to start your own home based business.
Enter Contests and Win Big Bucks
Entering contests takes just a few minutes out of your day but the return could be more than worth it. Sure, there is no guarantee of winning but the risk and investment is minimal. Contest sites offer you the chance to enter daily, weekly and monthly contests for cash prizes. It takes just a few clicks of the mouse and any amount of winnings makes up for the time spent.
Join the Blogosphere
Imagine getting paid to share your thoughts, opinions or expertise on a particular subject. Blogging is one of the most liberating occupations around and—depending on the time spent on it—can turn into a lucrative source of extra income without taking from your home duties. Even with all the blogger competition going on, earning money from blogging can be fairly simple. You set up a blog, develop a following and soon you can be working with advertisers to promote products or sell ad space.
