How to make money from home – 14 business ideas that can help you increase your income


If you want to make some extra money, but you do not have enough time because of the job you already have, do not be discouraged. There are many ways to make money from home, besides the current job, with minimal efforts.

Make the house available for a shooting or photo shoot

If your home is beautifully decorated, you can make some extra money by registering it as a location for a photo shoot or a shoot. So, prepare your home to appear on the big screen or, why not, in your favorite magazine.

Rent your home office

If you have a pretty spacious home, and a good WIFI connection, share it with other people in exchange for money. There is even a trend nowadays where people prefer to rent a quiet and welcoming workspace, where they feel even more creative than in an impersonal and cold office.

Eat in front of the webcam

In most cultures it is rather weird to be watched through the webcam while eating, but not in South Korea. If I tell you that there are people who make even $ 20,000 a month just because they eat in front of a webcam, you will definitely not believe me.
The habit, which is called “mukbang” in Korean, translates to “eat and transmit”.

Wash clothes

It may not be an option for you yet, but in the future you could earn some money by using your washing machine and taking care of other people’s laundry.
Because the new trend in home furnishings is to put as little furniture and as few appliances as possible, a large home appliance company is considering the possibility of introducing an “Uber for laundry” service. This means that you could rent your washing machine to those who do not use their own or who do not have one at home.

Write a book

The tip is only for those who really have writing talent. All you have to do is write a book, send it to an editor, who will then publish it. That’s about it! After that, all you have to do is wait for your copyright.

If you want to publish your book on Amazon or other online platforms, you must be aware that the payment will be made depending on how many people download or read it using special programs.

Launch some online courses

Let’s say you are an expert in a particular field, but you don’t think that writing a book is the best way to send information to the public. Go to plan B. Write some courses and launch them online. Set a price to pay for those who are interested in your courses and … that’s it.

Make yourself a site

If you are very good on a subject, but you do not want to write a book about what you are passionate about or create online courses, then make a site for yourself! Use WordPress or any other platform to make your site. The Internet is full of tutorials that will help you in your approach.

Once you’ve set up the site, you need to start making money. Sell advertising! The more readers you have, the more money you make. There are a lot of ways to make money with a website, but first create the content, get the visitors / readers and only after that monetize your creation.

Create an application

If you want to have a particular function on your phone, then try to create an application. You don’t have to be an IT specialist, there are enough sites that teach you how to do this. If your application is useful and people will use it, you can make money in two ways. You can upload it to the Apple Store or Google Play Store, or you can sell ads through it.
If you need motivation, find out that there are people who make thousands of dollars from applications.

Rent your apartment to tourists

You may not know, but celebrity couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are heavy users of the Airbnb platform.
If you have one or more rooms in your apartment (or maybe the whole apartment) you can rent it in the short term through Airbnb or VRBO. Basically, you turn your apartment room into a hotel room.

The cost of renting the room will vary depending on the city you live in, the neighborhood you live in, but also the season.

Sell books on Amazon

If you stumble across the bookstore you no longer read or plan to read again, pack them in a box and sell them on Amazon.

Banks pay you if you shop with your card

What do you have to do? For each product you buy with the card, the bank will give you back a percentage of the amount you paid. This percentage differs from bank to bank and depending on the type of card you hold.

Sell your photos on the internet

If you are passionate about photography, now there are lots of ways to make money from it. Upload your photos to Shutterstock or iStock, and when the visitors download the photos, they will pay the royalties.

Invest in the stock market

First of all you have to get acquainted with the Stock Exchange. If you find it too complicated and you can’t handle it, ask a broker for advice. It can advise you on the shares you can buy, but it is good to inform yourself about the company.

The next step is to determine the amount you want to invest. You can start “shopping”! Success!
