Do you want to be making money whilst being at a sunny beach in the middle of nowhere? Do you want to earn some passive income while your kids are sleeping? Those are great dreams, and guess what? They could become a reality. There are so many different ways of making money remotely – if I can do it, so can you.
You might just want to have a little side hustle or you might want to be at home (or anywhere else in the world!) full time. I’ve put together some ways you can earn money with only a laptop on your hands and a good Wi-Fi connection. And, don’t worry, I won’t try to make you sell cosmetics or essential oils!
Sell what you make.
Do you have a passion for making handmade soap? Have you always wanted to open your own high street shop selling your handmade jewellery? Forget about renting a physical space and create an eCommerce website to sell your creations online. This way, you can do it build your business anywhere! Ad Lab Adobe Magento Web Designers in London, believe that creating an eCommerce store is the way to go if you want to start an online business.
The team at Ad Lab recommend making a clean and simple website that is easy to use by all. Clunky and messy websites won’t generate sales. Consumers are savvy and don’t trust any website on the internet. So, having a good looking website that works and keeps your visitors and their information safe is of the utmost importance. If you are looking for website inspiration, browse these award-winning websites by Ad Lab on awwwards.com.
Turn your interests into a podcast.
As Really Missing Sleep says, “Podcasts are hot right now, and if you love listening to them, why not start your own?” After all, starting a podcast is easier than it looks – you need a laptop, microphone and recording software (you can find plenty of free software online!). Talk about things you enjoy, share your opinions about certain topics and you will slowly build an audience. When you have somewhat of an audience, you can start monetising your podcast.
Teach your skills to others.
You have skills that others don’t. Maybe for you the skills you have are simple and you could do them with your eyes closed but for others, who don’t have them, want help learning them. This is where you come in – teach others your skills and make money doing this. As this article on Intuit mentions, “To showcase your skills and help others, you could share how-to videos on SkillShare similarly to YouTube. To do this, create an account and post helpful lessons on anything you’d like.”
Rent your extra space.
Do you have a spare room, some camping space or have just renovated your annexe? Why not rent it? As the College Investor comments, “If you have some extra space at home, you have the potential to list your house while you’re away on Airbnb. Or, maybe you have a spare bedroom, loft, camping area, or other place where people can stay.”
