Work at Home Jobs to Make Extra Income

This is a sponsored conversation. All opinions are my own.

Any work at home job will require time, commitment, and the ability to make personal deadlines. When money was tight for my family, I found something I loved and turned it into a work at home job that I still enjoy to this day. With a little creativity and know-how, you can too! Whatever your reason for wanting a work home job, this is a helpful list that I have discovered to help you find what works for you.

1. Child Care Provider. I did this for many years and it is very rewarding, but takes a lot of patience. This kind of job is great if you are a stay at home like I am and need to watch your own children yourself.

2. Blogger or Social Media Influencer. If you have been following my blog for any amount of time, then you know I work with brands and get paid through affiliate marketing. I have enjoyed it and it has opened my family and I up to so many opportunities. It takes a lot of time and commitment, but if you are interested in becoming a blogger then just make sure you are willing to create content without getting paid to prove what you can provide to brands.

3. Customer Service Representative. There are many sites to go to where you will have to prove that you can speak nicely on the phone in an on call interview. This one is harder to do if you don't have an allotment of quiet time on your hands because background noise is prohibited.

4. Data Entry. Most companies do not require past experience, although with few exceptions the pay may not be enough to consider it a stable income. If you are a fast and accurate typist who doesn't mind repetition, you might excel at data entry.

5. Transcription. Transcription work from home jobs involve listening to audio files and typing out what you hear. While some types of transcription (such as medical) require training, it is possible to break into general transcription with little to no past experience.

6. Consultant. If you have a specialty and experience in a certain field, then consulting can offer you incredible experiences and career prospects, but it does also ask for a significant investment of your time and energy. Check out a consultant salary to see if this is a right fit for you.

7. Virtual Assistant. They are assistants who do a little of everything. Assistants can do a little bit of everything from scheduling appointments, to maintaining social media, to answering calls, and even research. There are even virtual assistants for fellow bloggers. Sometimes it can be harder to get into this because people want real life experience with references.

8. Online Academic Tutoring. You might make a great tutor if you're patient, good at explaining academic concepts, friendly, and you have past experience tutoring/teaching.

9. Join Merchandiser. Earn money with your smartphone by completing small projects at local stores. Sign up here. connects you with paid retail services gigs that you complete in local stores.

  1. I would love to work from home if I had the time, but I am a full time homeschool mom.

  2. These are good ideas. Many career-type companies are allowing employees to telecommute, too, sometimes a couple days a week, others full time. Nice if you can get one!

  3. Ive tried transcription but it took a long time for little pay.


Thank you for dropping by! I would love to hear what you thought. :)
