Do you ever think about how more convenieny tyhings cold be if you could only just work from home? Or maybe you are currently out of work after the grreat Pandemic and are seeking to find some new employment altogether.
In this article, U shall am to highlight just a few of these methods.
Why work at home?
There are a multitude of reasons working at home can be best depending on each of our own individual circumstances. But personally, I think one of the greatest advantages of working from home is that you can work anywhere you like, as long as you have an internet signal. Why work in a busy city office when you could be sat on a tropical island?
Another great advantage of working from home is that you don’t need to commute back and forward to work every day. It’s amazing just how much of our day is taken up by commuting, especially if you are using public transport in a place where public transport isn’t great. By working at home, you can save more than a whole work day each week which you can better spend at home or doing whatever you want.
For most people, the greatest thing they find about working from home is that it gives them much more quality time with their family or spouse, etc. Of course, it takes a good amount of self discipline and your own office space you can work undisturbed. But the benefits are amazing.

So, I have listed below here a few different ways that you can start working at home online that don’t cost you any money to get started.
Buying & Selling
Well, this has to be one of the original and most conventional ways of making money online. Since the dawn of the internet, people have been using it to shop fopr all sorts of goods as well as selling their own.
With the introduction of some of the platforms such as eBay and Amazon t has never been easier to sell your pown products online with absolutely no need for any knowledge of web design or coding. You can simply list the items you want to sell, Ad a some pictures, a description and a price and it will do the rest for you, including category management and making sure your listing comes to the top of searches for that particular item or field.
The only problem with Buying and selling online is that like any other form of retail, you need capital. The selling part may work good and well for you but first you need to have the money to buy stock. That’s where Dropshipping comes in handy. you see, rather than selling your own stock, you are selling other peoples stock as a third party.
For instance, you may source a new fashionable woman’s dress on one site such as eBay at a pretty good price, yet when you look on Amazon you may well find that the very same dress is being sold for double the price. So now you have scope. You can list that item at a competitive price and when someone buys it, you can (with prior arrangement with the seller of course) to have the dress sent not to you, but directly onward to your Amazon customer instead.
This method of sales is called Dropshipping and can be used in all sorts of scenarios. some of the big Chinese Marketplaces such as Alibaba and AliExpress can be good for this. However, if you do use them, bw sure to vet your suppliers well as it has its fair share of scam merchants too.
Now, Affiliate marketing is yet another way of making money from online retail without having to sell anything. All you have to do is help people by pointing consumers in the the right direction of the products that theyre already after and you receive a commission for doing so.
Similiar to Affiliate marketing, MLM works on commissions paid when people click on your links, only with MLM, short for Multi Level Marketing, you dont just get commission the once, but often it can work up to 5 times (or sometimes more). In other words, If you refer a consumer to a product that they spend money on and refer someone else to, you will not only receive the commission for the first referral, but also commission from the sales of their referrals referral and so on.
AS i said, this often works up to 5 tiers of referrals, so it can be a great way of earning money if you are good at building teams. This way you dont really need to do much selling yourself but let others do it for you aand you net the profits.
Online surveys can be a fun way of earning a few bob online. But I wouldn’t rely on it as a full-time income. At least not a lucrative one. Although, i have to admit, there’s been times in the past when i’ve been really skint and completing surveys has earned me some Vouchers for Tesco, Sainsburys, Walmart amongst many others as well as cash into my PayPal Account.
Just beware of the Scams though as there are many who will take your details and pretend that theyre working out whether the survey is suitable for you but in reality theyre asking all the questions they want to know. Then they will tell you you don’t qualify, giving you a measly few cents for your efforts.
Swagbucks is a pretty good site for surveys and also has plenty other side line options for earning extra cash by doing things like watching videos and clicking links. When you have accumulated enough points you can buy cash vouchers from their Rewards Store.
You may or may not be aware, but you can actualy make a significant amount of money online playing games. Many online games and apps are actually paying you money to play. Obviously their strategy is that once you are in, you will spend and thus they will make more than they pay out and this generally works with most people. However, if you keep the head and stay disciplined in your strategy, you accumulate quite a tidy sum of money by participating in multiple games, each for just a few minutes each day. One such game I would recommend for this is Coinbirds. It is a fun game you can play for just a few minutes each day absolutely Free and gradually accumulate yourself a tidy little turnover each month.
Build Your Website
Whatever your plan for earning money online, you should always have your own website. Even if your work is mainly carried out on YouTube or Social Media platforms, having your own site gives you a base you can work from and connect all your other channels to.
