Over the past few months I’ve been trying to find as many legitimate opportunities for folks who want to work from home as possible. Recently I stumbled onto the topic of making money at a call center, a job I thought wouldn’t apply to those who wanted to work online from home. Let’s dig in!
Money Making Methods
This is basically the Wild West of ways to earn money. You'd be surprised at the number of weird gigs there are out there. Some really work. Others are garbage. That's why I created this tag - to chronicle all the weird ways I've discovered to make money and see which ones really work.
Another similar category to explore is the Side Hustle Category. It's not really that different than this one, but you'll find more options there if you can't find anything you like here.
Honestly though, most of that stuff is still just trading dollars for hours, and not really seeking financial freedom. That's why I do affiliate marketing. It's scalable, meaning with time you can make more money with less work.
I get it. Not everyone wants to build a website or dedicate the time to watch your business grow while you wait for earnings to come in. For those who stick around long enough to see results, affiliate marketing can be a life changing experience for those who do feel a spark of entrepreneurship when they get their first website off the ground!
Not into affiliate marketing? No problem. Display ads like Adsense can make good money online and you don't even have to sell anything. Just get traffic to the site and get paid per impression or click. Easy (kind of)!
If you’re a photographer at heart or even if you just happen to have a camera, trying to make money with your digital camera can be an appealing idea. And, why not? Even if you’re an amateur photographer with a fairly cheap camera it’s still possible to take some pretty amazing photos. But, turning those images into money, well, that’s a different story altogether.
These days, just about everybody is a photographer, to some degree or another. After all, smartphones are becoming increasingly popular and the cameras on them keep getting better and better over time. For many of us, that also means we’re already carrying a camera with us everywhere we go. So, why not try to make money with the photos you take?
If you’re a creative sort of person one potential avenue for making money could be designing logos. With so many online and physical businesses out there, the amount of demand for logos is pretty much limitless. At the same time, logos can be fast to make, especially if you are familiar with the concepts and with whatever software you’re using.
Regardless of whether you work for yourself or for a company, deciding to make more money as a graphic designer is certainly an achievable goal. But, this begs the question, how do you make extra money reliably as a graphic designer, without subjecting yourself to an excessive amount of stress along the way?
