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.

13 of the Best Weekend Jobs

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.
