There are many reasons why you’d want to earn extra money, and if you can do it from the comfort of your home – why not do it?

It’s time to make some money. If you’re new to the whole working from home idea and are not sure what types of jobs you can do from the comfort of your couch – I’m here to help.
Sell your crafts.
Are you passionate about making floral arrangements? Perhaps you started making soap during the pandemic and now it has turned into a hobby? Sell it. If you’re already spending time making these crafts and your family and friends love them, why not start selling them to others? Magento Agency London, Ad Lab recommends creating an eCommerce store to sell the products you make.
You could go for the route of selling your products first in a marketplace to see how interested people are in your products and then move on to making your own website, create a strong brand and taking your products to the next level. Whatever works best for you! The team at Ad Lab recommend creating a simple, modern and user-friendly website to ensure the best possible experience for any potential customers.

Teach your skills to others.
Simple Parenting suggests teaching others your skills. “You have skills that others don’t. Maybe for you the skills you have are simple and you could do them with your eyes closed but for others, who don’t have them, want help learning them.” You can do this by creating content for websites, such as Skillshare or Youtube; you can give private lessons to teach specific skills or even apply for freelance home-based jobs that require the skills you have!
Start a blog and monetise it.
You won’t earn money from blogging straight away but if you keep at it, create good content, build up a brand and audience – you will quickly be able to start making money from it.
