Blogging is #1 on this list because it is one of the most flexible jobs you can have and the earning potential is limitless!

Blogging is my favorite form of passive income. I make money just for people reading my articles from ads, so if you’re reading this article, thank you!

When you get a nice amount of people reading your articles, it brings in a nice income.

Here’s a screenshot of my earnings in March from ads:

I made $400 in one day. I also make a lot more by partnering with companies and becoming an “Affiliate”. You can see how I make money blogging here.

Blogging takes ‘A LOT’ of work (in the beginning anyway) and a while before you start making money, but it’s so rewarding if you hang in there. I earn much more than when I was at my corporate job (I’ve been blogging for 18 months) and work about 10 hours a week now.

This is why this is the BEST ONLINE PART-TIME JOB FROM HOME.

How much can you earn? I know bloggers earning between $2,000-$100,000+ a MONTH (and I’m one of them)

Freelance jobs are a great way to make money online part-time. You deliver a service for a fee with the ability to work where and when you want with unlimited earning potential!

I have found many freelance jobs on Upwork. I sift through the available work options to see which project suits me the best.

I only apply to the jobs I KNOW I can do well because after the project is over its important that I get a good review so I can continue to get more jobs.

I suggest the following when applying to jobs on Upwork:

  • Focus on the projects with only 5-10 proposals or less submitted (less competition)
  • Check that the client has the “blue verified payment check” before applying
  • When you see a job that fits you, apply for it immediately!
  • If you live in the U.S., make sure to check “U.S. Only.”
  • If you are pitching your first job, try to offer your services for free for one week to ease the client’s mind since you have no references or reviews. If the client likes you move on with the “paid service” the following week. That’s how I won my first job, and the client still paid me for my first week.

For a full list of freelance services you can provide on Upwork, click here.


15. Travel Agent

Do you enjoy traveling and helping people? If so, you should consider becoming a Travel Agent and enjoy the perks.

How much can you earn? Glassdoor states the typical salary ranges from $29,000 to $58,000 a year, but it all depends on experience and number of clients.

How to get started: You can either start your own business or work for an agency, Sarah B. who started her own Travel Agency tells us how to become a travel agent.


16. Start a Baby Equipment Rental Business

Do you live in a popular tourist area? Did you know you could make a lucrative side hustle renting baby equipment to traveling families?

I think I’ll make you a believer when you read how Ashley does this part-time online in my article on how to start a baby equipment rental business. 

How much can you earn? Ashley earns over $3,000 per month part-time online at home with her kids.

How to get started: I recommend reading my interview with Ashley on How to Start a Baby Equipment Rental Business

Printables are a great way to make money because you only make them once and can earn money on them over and over again.

18. Web Search Evaluator

Web Search Evaluators are great online part-time jobs where you have to rate social media ads and search engine results for relevancy.

You work whenever it fits in your schedule as long as you can make up the 20 hours a week (no more than 8 hours a day).

How much can I make? $12.50 – $14 per hour.

How to get started: Apply to the only two companies I recommend for Web Search Evaluators.


19. Survey Taker

Give your opinion to help brands deliver better products and services and get paid in the form of gift cards or through PayPal aka cash.

How much can you earn? If you take the time to answer a lot of surveys, you could make $50-$100 a month. This is definitely just something to do to make extra money on the side.

How to get started: I only recommend signing up for Survey Junkie,  Swagbucks, and PrizeRebel.

The more survey sites you sign up for, the more you’ll make.

Pro Tip: Open a separate email account solely for surveys. You’ll start to get inundated with emails, and it will be more manageable in a different account

    I am retired and home bound. For me, working from home, means just that. Any jobs here that will not require me going out of my home?
    Thank you.

    Very interesting article. I work in the corporate field but I’m looking part-time work to assist with my daughter’s tuition fees. I noticed that some jobs are limited to the US and Canada, what recommendations do you have for persons living in the Caribbean?
