So you love to cook and bake. You can consider running a catering business from your kitchen. Majority of our Instagram chef work from home. Ex Big Brother Naija Season 3 housemate, Uriel Oputa, cooks and delivery’s from home. Aside Uriel, there are so many chef who work from home. You can start this business with less than 10,000 and get your friends to help you advertise to their work buddies. There are so many people who don’t have time to make homemade food or eat breakfast before setting out for work, with a good delivery system in place, you can cook and get it delivered to their home or offices.
3. Online marketing
Marketing doesn’t necessarily mean you have to go out to market your product. Are you good with online marketing? Can you create compelling contents and sponsored post online to boost sales? This is a skill worth paying for. So many small business and online stores are on the lookout for people like you. The good part is you can market their products or your products and get paid.
4. Creative content creator
So you spend time on Instagram, scrolling through feed, laughing at comedy videos, noticing the glitch in effect because you are good at editing. Why not reach out and volunteer your services. Most of our Instagram influencers do not edit their pictures or videos themselves. As a content creator, you get to make money by simply editing videos, pictures or giving your clients ideas on how their next project should be carried out. Do you have a camera, laptop and dope background in your house, you can reach out to brands and help them create nice content to advertise their products.
5. Online survey
Another popular way to make money is to participate in online survey. Some websites are looking for people to help them take survey. You can do this job from the comfort of your home with a mobile phone or laptop. The good thing is you not only earn some extra cash but gift vouchers. The last survey I did for Airbnb earned me $200 Amazon gift card and I also got paid. Now you are wondering what this survey is about. I can bet you’ve stumbled on this survey but you somehow ignored it. Be on the lookout for survey like this, download the Yahoomail app, subscribe to some newsletters, even Facebook sometimes gives you free $20 to sponsor your post if you partake on their survey.
These are just five out of a thousand great ways for earning money from your own home. While waiting for a job, it is good to know that your ability to take things into your own hands is better than staying idle.
