Do you find yourself wondering about ways to start a home business? Whatever your reason, earning extra income from the comfort of your own home is an alluring idea. But, with so many get rich schemes promising instant riches it’s easy to find yourself getting suckered in time and time again.
Realistically speaking, you won’t find too many people who actually ‘get rich’ without dedicating years to building a successful home business. Of course, starting any business is going to cost you upfront! But, for many people, they don’t have any extra cash to invest in launching their enterprise.
The good news is if you’re willing to work hard, you can easily earn a side income that will give you the chance to build your wealth. There are plenty of websites that pay you at least $20 per hour to stay at home, and we’ve highlighted three of the best for you to consider.
YouTube is an excellent website for generating an online income! YouTube lets users post non explicit videos on just about any topic you could think of, for free. The best part about this online business is that it’s as easy to launch as turning on your camera and pressing the record button. You can start making money without any upfront investment whatsoever.
The trick to making a decent amount of money from your channel is to enable advertisements on the videos you post. You will earn between $1 to $3 for every 1,000 views any one video receives.
Naturally, the more videos you upload, the more money you earn, which is why you want to aim for a steady stream of new content. Once you build-up just a few thousand subscribers your earnings will increase drastically. Your followers are likely to watch any new videos you upload and are notified of any fresh content you add.
We’ve written this guide to three of the best websites to start making money from home. These sites are user-friendly and perfect for anyone who is just beginning with work-from-home opportunities.
2. Amazon Mechanical Turk
Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) is a popular way to earn income from home. This crowd sourcing marketplace offers a user-friendly interface and has a decent variety of tasks (HITs) available.
HITs include things like categorizing video clip, market research surveys, and general data extraction. These generally pay quite low per HIT, but there some higher paying options available.
The higher paying HITs require you to pass a qualification test before being able to accept one, which is quite straight forward. If you are familiar with transcribing, there are several HITs at any given time, and the pay adds up pretty quickly.
Chegg is an online tutoring venture that pays $20 per hour. They offer flexible hours and best of all, you work from home whenever you want. Chegg is an excellent part-time opportunity and is perfect as a secondary job.
Most tutors report making upwards of $1000 per month, not too bad if you ask me! Payments are issued each week, so you get cash in hand four times per month. You choose the subjects you’re best with and answer help requests from students directed to you for assistance.
