10 Easy ways to make money right from your couch

Updated on May 31, 2017

Whether you are a mother of four children, an introvert that does not want to mingle with the office crowd or you just do not want to take the subway every day, there are many other ways of earning money right from your own home. All you need is a strong internet connection and a computer. Here are 10 ways to make money from the comfort of your own couch!

1. Take online surveys

Take surveys, answer questions and review products that matter to you. If you earned enough points from different surveys taken from a specific site, you can earn money from places such as Survey Club and EPoll.

2. Freelance Writing

If you have a creative brain, freelance writing is the way to go. Get paid for the articles you write and get them featured all over the web. There are, however, a few content mills to watch out for! You can earn money with your writing on sites like Hubpages. You can also advertise your writing services on places such as Fiverr.

3. Website Building

Website builders and designers are in a huge demand for social media and web presence play a big role in the modern age we live in. You can design your own websites at places like 121hub and you can design websites for others using the same site.

4. Social Marketing Consultant

Many companies do not have the time to market the products or services the have to offer. Advertising on Facebook and Twitter helps to create a broader audience. With a little creative thinking, you can advertise as many products and services as you like!

5. Digital Photography

If you have a good camera at hand, upload all the fantastic shots you take and sell them on the web. There is always a huge demand for stock images! You can sell your photos on sites such as Shutterstock and Dreamstime.

6. Sell items

If you have any products or services you would like to sell, there are a vast number of places you can do just that. It does not need to be your own products, you can offer to sell products or services for a company. It just takes a little creative thinking and a whole lot of enthusiasm! You can sell items at places such as Ebay or Etsy.

7. Teach online classes

Do you know of a group of people that can benefit from what you know? Share your knowledge with them on an online class. A great place to do that is on Webex, an online meeting space. Here you can share screens and do a whole lot more to make class time fun!

8. Logo design

If you know something about designing, logo designing on the web will benefit you. Companies and web pages are always in search of good designers to design logos for their sites. You can sell your logos to places such as Crowdspring.

9. Testing Websites

Companies usually want feedback on how people find their site and all it offers. Usertesting is a site that asks you to test a website. This is similar to surveys but only relates to website testing.

10. Sell Articles

If you write a lot, why not sell it? If content mills are not your thing, places like Helium and ArticleSale allow you to sell your articles on the web to whoever is in need of articles.

It's as easy as one, two, three! Just tap away at the keyboard and see how easy it is to make money!
