What do you do to make extra money from home?
Hubpages, Wizzley, Infobarrel, Webanswers and about ten of my own sites.
10 sites! That is a lot! I knew you had a couple sites, but wow. How do you organize all of them?
I went nuts and now have 7 websites and like 8 other blogs. Needless to say I only put effort into a couple and the blogs are more so for linking purposes. Creating a big content network that's one of the ways to make a good chunk on the internet, keeping up with that network can and will drive you mad at times.
Writing brings in a little, and there are other things you can do to earn actual money, but if you are the "home CEO" you earn by being a good manager of resources.
Home management can take the form of planning, budgeting, cooking, maintaining and doing a lot of things you would pay others for if you were away at "work".
I always said my mom worked 3 jobs: She was a teacher, a wife, and a mother. And she is excellent at all 3. She's not a teacher anymore, but still has a day job.
How do you earn if the topic is well covered and it is the only topic you know...so sad
@XyberSpace, SuccessfromHome is not asking how to earn extra money from home. She's asking what others do to earn extra money. Dependent on their responses, she would perhaps, and likely suggest other creative ways for them to earn additional money, based on what they currently do. AND even if this is the only topic she knows, every day is a day for growth and learning. Be nice...perhaps you've been in XyberSpace too long!
Years ago, I used to sell stuff on eBay in the metaphysical section. I would buy old brassware and silver-plated stuff for pennies in charity shops: goblets, plates, bells, candlesticks. I'd put a few pieces together, add some joss sticks or incense and charcoal I had bought wholesale and put it up for auction as an "altar set". I would get back way more than I had paid. I also sold gemstone beads, sculptures and polished and unpolished chunks of gemstones, which made a little.
Now I work as a freelance from home, translating medical documents and indexing books, I don't have time for eBay any more. Anyway, eBay has changed for the worse in my view.
I do occasionally hunt for cheap books in charity shops to resell on Amazon Marketplace. Certain titles can be quite profitable. I recently downloaded the Amazon barcode reader for my new phone. This lets me scan a barcode and instantly see the Amazon prices for that title. However, I haven't had time to use it yet.
I used to sell corporate books to businesses from home. It was very profitable as I got paid straight fees just for accepting our trial offers. But it got boring because I missed office interaction. So I went back to work in the office.
sounds intresting how would one go about doing that as i hate the interaction and like working alone with one one to bother me while i work
I found their ad in the newspaper. It was years ago when my kids (I have two) were still small and my husband and I were trying to save money on babysitter. This company gave me a list of companies to call every week, and paid $15 per accepted trial offer... if they don't like the books, they can return them in 30 days. The catch (there is always a catch) is if they forget to return the books within 30 days, they get billed. They paid straight, no taxes deducted, so at the end of the year I had to pay lots of taxes. It was an easy job, but I missed the camaraderie in the office. But It gave me experience to do sales which I never had before. Because of that experience, I got a job working for Canon. If you like telemarketing, there are companies who allow their employees to work from home. You can also do fundraising and get paid. I used to do fundraising for political parties, too. Good luck!
Well, generally I don't really go out and try to make extra money, but if an opportunity presents itself, I may jump on it. Originally, I really tried hard to make money as a freelance writer online, but my energy in the subject began to trickle. I had once found this new forum who paid $0.50 for every post and it also paid you 100% of all of your referral's earnings. I made about $450 within 2 weeks, but they shut their earning opportunities down because they were losing a lot of money.
I just got a letter in the mail that invited me to participate in mailing letters or something for IBM. They are going to pay me $15 for every successful drop off, and there will be only 1 per month. It's not much, but it's a little bit of money for only 5 minutes a month.
