    Ten Easy Ways to Earn Extra Money from Home

    Working from home can be an easy way to earn extra money, especially during the holiday season. It's easy to pick up some additional income: all you need is some spare time and a computer with an internet connection. Here are ten great ways to make extra cash.

     

    Become a Website Tester

    Help web developers find out the ways in which their websites are confusing or not working well by becoming a website tester for UserTesting.com. They’ll give you software to install on your computer that tracks your mouse’s movements, and ask you to narrate a short video while you use the site. After answering a few questions, you’ll be paid $10 per site you review. To find out more information, click here.

     

    Sell Crafts Online

    Are you a crafter? A knitter? A genius with paper mache? Etsy.com will give you a worldwide venue to sell your item. Sign up for free and get your very own virtual shop, then pay 20¢ for every item you list. You can set the price at whatever you want, and when it sells, you pay Etsy 3.5 percent of the price to handle the credit card transaction. You can also pay extra fees to be featured on the Etsy home page, which is visited by thousands of people looking to buy handmade items.

     

    Get Paid to Take Surveys

    The folks at SurveySpot.com not only want your opinion, they’ll pay for it. Join for free and you’ll receive 5–7 surveys each week to complete. For each completed survey, they’ll pay you $2–$10 or enter you in a sweepstakes (or both!). This and other survey sites like MySurvey.com, EPoll.com, and Toluna.com can be frustrating because you don’t always qualify to take the survey and it can take a while to earn money, but if you enjoy answering questions and have a bit of free time, this is a great way to earn some extra cash while you’re messing around on the web.

     

    Work from Home for Google

    Did you know that Google occasionally offers telecommuting jobs? Though open positions are not always easy to come by, it’s worth it to check out this site to see if they have any openings. Some jobs, like reading their ads to make sure they make sense, don’t have many requisite skills, and you still get to work for one of the top-rated companies in the world!

     

    Bilingual? Become a Translator

    Do you know more than one language well enough to translate written words? If so, you can make between $10 and $50 an hour working from home. Visit TranslatorBase.com to find people needing freelance translators for material in many languages, including English, Spanish, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Italian, Greek, Russian, Arabic, Korean, and many more. Projects range from large websites to a single marriage document.

     

    Get Paid to Transcribe

    Make that typing class you took way back when pay off! If you’re quick and accurate when it comes to typing things up on the computer, you may want to try out Workers.Virtualbee.com. Register with the site and take an evaluation test, and you’ll be on their list of people willing to type for cash! You’ll get paid per 1,000 (accurate) characters/keystrokes, and the amount changes depending on their demand and supply of typists. Workload also varies, but some people have reported getting a lot of work around tax time. In any case, if you’re quick at a keyboard it’s worth checking out!

     

    Sell Items on Ebay

    Turn those old Precious Moments figurines and your vinyl record collection into cash by using eBay. Getting started is easier than you might think. Go to Ebay.com and set up an account, then post photos and information about a product you want to sell, and other users can buy it. Anything goes: Jell-O molds, clothes and accessories, musical instruments, baby products, computers, DVDs, cars—and you get to set the price. (Try searching for similar items and see what other people have sold them for.) We’ve had friends who have made enough each month on eBay to cover their basic utility and phone bills! All it takes is the willingness to be on-call to answer customer inquires via email, and the ability to mail items out as soon as they’re purchased. For more information, click on “Sell” and then “Seller information center” on the upper-right-hand corner of the site, where you can find an easy-to-understand guide to getting started and frequently asked questions.

     

    Operate a Call Center

    There are many opportunities available for becoming a customer service representative right in your own home. Sign up with AlpineAccess.com and you’ll receive calls from customers needing help from major organizations like Sears, Office Depot, and the IRS. You usually need to provide your own computer with a high speed internet connection, and sometimes an extra phone line, but you’ll make up to $14 an hour and won’t even have to change out of your pajamas.

     

    Write and Copyedit from Home

    Do you have a background in writing or copyediting? DemandStudios.com, which supplies articles to eHow.com, hires writers and copyeditors, as well as videographers. The base pay isn’t much, but you’ll get more money as you get more hits to your page, and the experience is a great resume booster.

     

    Sell Your Photography

    If you have a gift for taking beautiful photographs, there may be a side career for you in photography. You can make money selling your images to publishers and creative professionals who are looking for stock photography. Go to Shutterpoint.com, Dreamstime.com, or iStockPhoto.com to find out more about selling your images online.

    I personally prefer surveys that don't waste your time with points/freebies and pay out cash instead.

    One of the confusing aspects of home income is that there are actually many ways to approach it from what I've seen. I like to browse through different programs and systems to find what I might enjoy doing. This site has a variety of different ideas and resources and I enjoy browsing there.
