As a single mother who goes to college and works part-time, you may want to make money from home to supplement your income. A lot of people think there is a catch when I tell them they can make money from home, too. I’ve gotten responses like, “How many envelopes do I have to stuff?” Or even better, “I don’t have a webcam…”
Actually, there are a ton of different legitimate options to make money from home. The first place to turn is the Internet, of course! In this day and age, the first place people go when looking for info is online. No one owns encyclopedias anymore — or even phone books for that matter.
It’s a superhighway of information, shopping, and entertainment. It’s also one of the only niches that are booming during our recession. It’s like the Wild West of modern day opportunity. You can still forge your own path in this somewhat uncharted territory.
So, you want to make money from home, but you aren’t a computer techie? Well, here are some of the quickest ways to get your feet wet. I’m not claiming you’ll get rich quick. Then again, you never know. YouTube started with some affiliate marketing and a skateboard video before it sold for $1.65 billion to Google.
- Surveys – Online surveys and mystery shopping are legitimate ways to make money telling about products or services you’ve tried. In some cases, you’ll get a whole meal paid for in return for a review of a restaurant.
- Blogging – If you like to write, blogging or writing ads for products or services you believe in will make a decent wage.
- Affiliate programs – Not as hard as you think, set up a website or blog and put some text or graphic ads up that go with the page. Make money every time someone clicks through or purchases the product.
To make money from home full or part time, the only thing you need is a vision and self-discipline.
