Different Ways To Work From Home

Updated on July 6, 2019

Writing a blog/making YouTube videos/streaming.

This one is going to cover several ways in one go.

If you're passionate about something, chances are other people are too. With so many people having access to the internet, either through their computers or phones, as well as social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, you are able to reach a wide array of people who have got similar interests to you.

If you are a keen writer, you could write a blog about your favourite subject, whether you're into stamp collecting, gaming or movies, you can easily write a blog about that subject and people will want to read it.

I, for example, enjoy playing video games. I enjoy playing games and streaming them on Twitch, a popular streaming service owned by Amazon. By streaming on Twitch, I am able to make money via donations and subscriptions from viewers. While donations and subscriptions are completely voluntary, they are both great ways for viewers to support their favourite content creators on the website.

If becoming a content creator is something you're interested in, you can also look at combining streaming with making YouTube videos. You could use stream highlights and turn them into a compilation video and put it on YouTube. You could also make specific videos for YouTube regarding new games that are being released and discussing them both on Twitch and YouTube.

These will take a lot of time and effort to get started as Twitch and YouTube are such huge platforms for creators that it can be exceptionally difficult to get noticed and turn this hobby into a profession.

Completing Projects For Other People

If you have got a talent, like building websites or writing, you can post jobs on websites like Fiverr, where people pay you to complete projects. If you are out of work and looking to work in a specific area, it can be a good way to gain experience and earn some money at the same time. Once you have gained a good reputation, you will be able to get more projects and be able to earn more money.

You can also become a freelance worker in any area you excel at. If you are great at building websites, you can assist small businesses in building their websites. The same goes if you're great at writing, you can proofread for other people and be able to help improve their work.

If you are looking for work in a specific field, such as video editing or journalism, this could be a fantastic opportunity to gain some experience and being able to use the experience to see whether you would be interested in setting up your own business, or writing full-time as a blogger or freelancing your work to other outlets, like newspapers or online news outlets.

Trading on the Stock Market

This item is risky because even though you can make money, you can lose money too.

This one takes a lot of research and long hours if you want to make a lot of money doing it and you could potentially lose all of your money if you aren't willing to do the leg work. With that being said, there are enough business news websites and trading websites such as and

With you are given £20 to trade with when you confirm your mobile number and are given extra money on your first deposit. The amount varies depending on what the amount is. You will also get extra money on your first deposit on the site.

Selling items online

If you enjoy creating things at home, whether that be knitting, wood craft or baking, you could potentially be able to sell those items online. You could sell your items through sites like Etsy, eBay or through Facebook groups (especially if you're making food items).

If you are considering setting up a business this way, you will need to do a lot of research to see what the demand is and whether you will be able to create your own niche market so you are able to make money from your products. It is important to ensure that you are able to differentiate yourself from the competition in such a way that your customers do not get your business confused with another one that offers similar products to yourself.
