So, you’re looking to work at home. I don’t blame you. The freedom that you gain by working at home is fantastic. I have had the privilege of working from home for many years, and I love it. I haven’t had a boss for a long time, and I don’t ever want to. Once you start your own online business, you will never want to go back.
- Spend more time with your kids
- Set your hours
- Work from your laptop which means you can work from anywhere in the world
- You potential can create a passive income that works when you don’t
What are the top work from home jobs available in Canada? My list is as diverse as it gets, it ranges from making a full-time income to just playing around as a hobby. Below are six ways that you can make money online today:
1. Sell your photography.
Use sites like Shutterstock and istockphoto to sell your photos. I know people sell their photos online make about $200-1000 a month. The great feature about selling photography on the internet is that you can create a passive income stream. Once uploaded to photo sharing site your photos can potentially make you money.
2. Sell on Amazon, Etsy or Ebay.
If you have a creative blood, you can create some homemade items and sell them on Etsy, Amazon or Ebay. There are a lot of people that are successful in this type of home job. A few years ago I was going to start my own online business, but I didn’t have a product to sell – that’s kinda where the problem lies. You have to have a unique product if you are going to make money.
3. Sell Used Items.
I have family members that buy items at yard sales and resells them on Kijiji or a local Facebook groups. There is money to be made if you know product prices and can flip them for a quick dollar.
4. Complete Surveys
Some people are making money completing surveys for cash. Though this is my least favourite way to make money online, you could make a little money doing this. People use sites like Mysurvey or ipoll and daily fill out their surveys. Most of the time these places payout with gift cards, but it’s still a great way to work from home.
5. Try Fiverr
Use Fiverr to build, create, edit or design something for someone else. If you have an ability, you can make money by promoting it on Fiverr.
The last way people are making money online is through affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is where people promote other people’s product or services and receive a small commission if that product sells. We have all bought something on Amazon because we followed a link on a blog – that’s affiliate marketing, and it can make you a lot of money if done right.
