In this article I’m going to share with you 5 REAL ways that you can start making money from home in 2022. There will be no mention of “Online Surveys” nor will I be telling you to become a mystery shopper. Every side hustle I talk about can be used to make a great income outside of your 9 to 5 job or even turned into a full time gig.
Become A Virtual Assistant
Since the pandemic, the working world has completely changed with a-lot of people finally waking up to see the benefits of working from home instead of facing the daily commute into the office.
More so, businesses and entrepreneurs are also realising that they now no longer need to fill out a multi million dollar office with people they have to pay to train.
Now where does your opportunity come in?
What you can essentially do is offer your VA services to those in need and charge an hourly rate for doing so. You don’t really need any specific experience to start doing this, just basic computer and communication skills .
From here, you can post your services on websites like Fiverr or Upwork, set your hours, your hourly wage and start finding work to do in your spare time.
Create An Online Course
Now I cannot explain how misunderstood this business model actually is, but at the same time, I can see why people may have their assumptions. Over the past 10 years, online courses have gained a reputation of being a little bit “scammy” with fake promises and little follow ups.
However, things have now changed and online tuition is becoming widely adopted with courses now being made readily available online for quite literally anything.
If you have a skill in an area that someone else desires, then you have every right to create a course on that topic. All you need to be is one step ahead, not an expert.
One of the best sites to host an online course is SkillShare and if you click here, you can sign up for a free 30 day trial to check out some courses other people have already made.
Become A Video Transcriber
With Instagram Reels, TikTok and YouTube growing faster than ever, one of the main in demand services people are looking for are those that will convert audio into text. This allows content creators to place captions on videos that will increase engagement and ultimately retention.
One service they normally turn to is Rev.com which offers them video transcriptions at $1.50 per minutes audio.
Where you can make money from a website like this is that Rev.com also offers a service for freelancers. This is where you can sign up to do the actual transcribing for people and get paid weekly via PayPal.
Rent out an asset
Do you have a spare bedroom, parking space or car that you don’t need all the time?
If so, then consider renting these out to a friend or associate during your spare time and start earning easy passive income without really lifting a finger.
You can use websites like yourparkingspace.com, Air BNB or Hiyacar.com.
Manage social media accounts
With social media becoming one of the leading forms of advertising, an opportunity has come to those looking to monetise this digital boom.
Offer to create content, engage with followers or maybe even generate leads via different social media channels for a retainer payment in return.
You can advertise your services once again on Upwork, Fiverr and you could even go to the lengths of creating your own brand on social media or a stand alone website.
Regardless, starting a side hustle from home can be one of the most rewarding things anyone can do, especially as we approach tougher times with the cost of living crisis.
I can confidently say that the side hustles I started over 5 years ago has now changed my life for the better and I look forward everyday to continue working on them.
If none of the above float your boat then don’t worry, I have just created a 100 free side hustle idea guide that you can grab for FREE by clicking here.
