If you are a fast typist, you can find general transcription jobs that you can do from home using your typing skills. Some companies offer general transcription jobs to people without prior transcription experience. Instead, you will most likely have to pass their transcription and typing tests. General transcription jobs require you to listen to audio files of personal conversations, college lectures, business meetings etc and then transcribing them into text files for the targeted audience to understand easily. At first, doing general transcription jobs can be really intimidating for beginners but as you get used to it over time, you will get better at doing them. Here are some sites and companies offering transcription jobs that require no prior relevant experience.
If you’re just starting out wanting to learn the ins and outs, right now there is a pretty damn good internship that a group of SEO’s are putting on. I started about a year ago and without much success until I went through one of the internships. They cover niche website building start to finish so I highly recommend it. Just give me an email if you are interested. [email protected]
Writing copy for websites is another great freelancing option for those who have a way with words. Copywriting can involve writing the text for websites, press releases, promotional offline materials including leaflets and brochures, and any other professional text for businesses. Writing copy can be better paid than blog writing. However, clients can be more fussy, as they want the highest quality writing for the forefront of their website or advertising campaigns. Many freelance writers offer both copywriting and blog writing amongst their services. This can be a good way to juggle regular but lower paid clients (blogging) with the higher paid but ad-hoc project based copy work.

WebMD uses a variety of moneymaking strategies and is an example of an authority website, which is the go-to place for information on a given topic. In a similar vein, The Simple Dollar is an online resource and budding authority website on personal finance topics. We value our readers and try to provide you with valuable content to keep you coming back. But your focus shouldn’t be on making millions or becoming an authority website. Your goal should be delivering value, solving a meaningful problem, and making that first dollar online.


Thank you for all of this information! I am overflowing with ideas. I pray that this is God led. I am putting it in His hands. I do have one question. Will I be able to start blogging quickly after purchasing the plan of choice with the service provider you suggested. I think the plan I’m choosing runs around $6 a month. Will there be more necessary things to add (plug ins?? Idk what that is?!?) which will be costly or can I just begin getting creative? I hope I’m not bothering you. You have a wealth of knowledge! Maybe one of your books would help? Recommendations?? Otherwise, I will sift through all the wonderful information you have provided right here! Thank you, Sarah! This could be life changing for me and my family. You are awesome!
Search Engine Evaluators are hired by search engines like Google and other companies that are striving to improve their search engine results or user experience. Companies are hiring lots of search engine evaluators. You can work from home with no experience needed. This side gig helps search engines or companies evaluate their services and help them to know whether website users will have a better experience or not. Lionbridge and Appen are the most well-known companies here.
The good news: Making money online is no longer a pipe dream. The bad? Who knows where to start? There are countless success stories of people earning passive incomes online, whether it’s from blogging, creating YouTube videos, or through a startup. Then there are others who make money online, but you’re not sure how, and you’re secretly hoping they’re not part of Silk Road or the dark Web or the latest scam.
Many people fancy themselves as designers. If you have a unique idea for a new product then it may be time to get it designed. This can be a long process involving prototypes, discussions with factories, package design, and much more. However, the profits once the product is on the market could be substantial. And remember, with Amazon FBA, your products can all be stored and shipped by Amazon, giving you time to think up your next invention. Learn more about Amazon FBA with my How To Start An Amazon FBA Business Guide.
Photographs. Because your customers won’t be able to touch or hold your items, you need to give them as much of a visual feel for the products as you can. You’ll do it with photographs – but not just any photos. They have to be pleasing to the eye and make the item look fantastic. You’ll have to learn the art of photography, and if you can’t get the hang of it, you’ll have to hire someone to do it for you. Yes, it’s that important.
Many big businesses are looking for social media influencers to become long-term ambassadors for their brand. This would involve you working closely with one particular band, and promoting their clothes, products, and services. You may also be restricted from promoting other brands, so check out the small print before agreeing to any long-term agreements.

Research other listings in your city on AirBnB and see what the going rate is for a place like yours. You could also just rent out a private room as well or even a bed in a shared room. In fact, that's how AirBnB got its start. However, you might find it hard in the beginning without reviews, but as long as you take really good care of your guests and provide a lot of value, the reviews will eventually come rolling in.
Another thing I do not like about Textbroker: even when the client, whom you wrote a particular article for, absolutely loves what you wrote and gives you an excellent rating, quite often Textbroker will still rate the same article low, usually for nit picky things such as lacking just one or two comas, or, because they didn’t like the way you chose to phrase stuff within your article. Here again, if the client, who is actually paying for your work, is not only satisfied, but in fact, very happy with the article, who the heck are the Textbroker editors to say it is not good enough?!!!
New to the work-from-home world? Are you worried about taking the leap to working at home because you’re afraid you have to spend money to make money? You can relax! The truth is that there are plenty of ways to earn an income from home – a full-time income, no less – that don’t require any financial investment. I’m going to break down the main types of remote work for you, share legitimate work-at-home opportunities, and even show you how to avoid scams.
SiteStaff – This company occasionally hires remote chat hosts. Their website says nothing about needing prior experience. I don't think they always have openings, and it's an independent contractor position. When you're on their site, a chat box will appear asking if you have questions. Don't use this box to ask about employment because you will get a canned response explaining they don't answer questions about jobs on their live chat.
If my piece of content is so unique and valuable around hiking backpack recommendations, that other reputable outdoor websites are willing to link to it and build the page’s authority, then I’d have a very real opportunity to rank high in organic search for these search terms (meaning, my page will come up first when someone searches for hiking backpacks).
Use keyword research to give validity to your ideas, seeking out niches and themes with high search volume and low competition. But above all, only pursue a niche that you are genuinely passionate about and interested in. Otherwise you won’t be able to devote the same kind of time and energy to it as you will if you choose a niche you truly love. By choosing a niche that you are passionate about, it will also be easier to position yourself as an authority in that topic and build consumer trust.
Become a Pet Sitter: Dog walking services are perfect if you have a park near your house and pets love you. Our you are comfortable with pets. Apply for the online pet services and get hired. It will allow you to make some extra money from home. If you like pets, turn it into a money making idea. Rover is one of the best known petting sitting companies. 
Alliance Wealth Management, LLC (“Alliance”) is a registered investment adviser offering advisory services in the State(s) of Illinois and in other jurisdictions where exempted. Registration does not imply a certain level of skill or training. The presence of this website on the Internet shall not be directly or indirectly interpreted as a solicitation of investment advisory services to persons of another jurisdiction unless otherwise permitted by statute. Follow-up or individualized responses to consumers in a particular state by Alliance in the rendering of personalized investment advice for compensation shall not be made without our first complying with jurisdiction requirements or pursuant an applicable state exemption.
Paige, many plug ins are free. Some are paid. I do have paid ones, but only a few. You will be able to get going after that, but you do want to purchase a theme. I’d suggest Genesis and a child theme. You can see all the things that I recommend here on my blogging resources page, most of which are free. 🙂 I would NOT suggest a free theme for someone who wants to make money blogging. That is something you want to pay for, along with hosting.
There are a lot of different methods and processes for building a successful niche site, and most of them will work. The one thing that everyone needs however, is the belief in themselves and that particular process. A successful site takes time and effort, and the reason most people fail, is ultimately because they give up. Being too hung up on whether or not they will succeed has been too much for many a beginner, and I’ve seen some great sites with potential to be huge, get abandoned a couple of months in once the novelty wore off for the site builder and the doubt took over. If you can just have faith in yourself that you WILL succeed if you stick at it, then succeed you will. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. I don’t think there’s anything more powerful in this business, and it’s the piece of advice I give my customers over and over again.

As far as Poker goes (at least for Texas Hold’em), I’d recommend sitting at a low stakes table (1/2 no-limit is the lowest most places have) and merely being observant/make casual conversation at the table for a while until you feel comfortable. If you’ve never played, just tell the dealer and they’ll be happy to help you out (most players will notice if you haven’t played before anyways so you’re not really at a loss there). Just play “tight” (a small range of strong starting hands) and that’s a pretty good place to start!

Do you love getting refunds? How cool would it be to get money back on stuff you’ve already bought? Paribus is a service that lets you find out if stores you’ve shopped at online owe you a refund.  It’s free to sign up. Paribus connects to your email account and checks your receipts.  If they find out a retailer has dropped their price they file a price adjustment claim for you.  Try out Paribus.

Some scams might involve asking you to pay for a “training” book or CD that explains how to make money in a certain business. Others charge for supposedly “exclusive” products that you’re supposed to sell at a premium. Avoid both of these scenarios. Remember, you should never have to pay to get a job. And if someone asks you to, you can be sure that it’s a scam.


Validated Response provides their home based agents with a flexible schedule as they work as independent contractors for the company. Their requirements are quite basic and include the need for a good computer with reliable internet, interpersonal skills and a good phone voice. No experience is requires as they are willing to train you for the position.
It’s just weird not knowing what I do not know. Perhaps if I followed along and hired someone to build links, traffic would be 2X higher? Who knows. I even saw a testimonial from one of my PF blog peers how great so and so link building/SEO site was… and I was thinking…. man, what a fool I am to not participate and take the easier way. The site also is a PR5, but I don’t think the traffic is the same, but who knows.
If you're looking for a quick fix, sell gigs on Fiverr. Everyone knows about the gig economy. It's evolved over the years. And today, they're not just five-dollar gigs that you're selling. But, you need to build credibility first. Deliver real value. Go out of your way. Get stellar reviews. Then. And only then. Can you really kick things into high gear.
26. Services – You can offer a paid service, such as life coaching, blog coaching, goal setting or financial planning. Just be sure to investigate all the legal implications and make sure you’re not claiming to be a professional if you’re not one. With a service like this, you’re basically using your blog to sell yourself. You’ll need to convince people that you’re worth buying and then be able to back up your claims once they purchase your service.
Great post as all ways. I’ve just started to work on some of my nearly dead sites. I found the Back-link Strategy from Pat Flynn, and have been half following it, so yes it works. I kinda worked out that I had only been doing half the job, by writing the content, and some basic social media links and pinging.. It is a lot more work then that, that’s for sure.
You may decide to create free videos as extra content for your blog, and not sell them at all. If this is the case then you can still make money from these videos by selling advertising space on them (in the same way as discussed for monetizing podcasts). Once you have high volumes of traffic visiting your blog, and watching your videos, you can charge businesses to advertise at the beginning of your videos. Use website’s like Izea to help you connect with companies willing to pay to advertise on your blog.

28. Subscription – If you think of something valuable (newsletter, online magazine, etc.) that you can consistently offer on a certain basis (weekly, monthly, etc.), you may want to offer a subscription service. This could be a fee charged each time your product is sent out or on a monthly basis. Either way, this has to be something that your customers can only get by subscribing to your website.
Presentation designers are recruited by employees and business owners who have to give an outstanding presentation but they do not know how to prepare it. You can provide presentation designing services by understand the requirements of presentation. You can shoot Microsoft PowerPoint, Google Slides or Adobe products to get the job done. Go to Fiverr.
Why not build a full-blown Shopify ecommerce store? Create a niche and sell a variety of products directly on your store. Advertise it using Facebook ads. There are an endless supply of blue-ocean niches that are far less competitive than some of the more crowded red-ocean ones that have spawned an endless sea of merchants vying for the consumer's attention.
For Example: Using the tag search for marketing we can find all of the most popular links in the category. By scrolling down the page, we can see that “marketing” has 24,282 pages of material containing that tag. By viewing the tags that also associated with the “Marketing” tag, we can find the other “keywords” that real people often associate with our given term.
21. Facebook – Facebook swap shops are great for selling things locally. It’s like CraigsList, but a little easier. You simply search for swap shops in your area and ask to join the group. Once you’re in, take a picture of the item, write a quick description with the price and post it. It doesn’t get much easier than that. You can generally expect to get about what you would get at a yard sale, maybe a little more.

What isn't clear in the sales pitch is this: Once you've kept the CD-ROM for more than a few days, you start getting charged -- sometimes hundreds of dollars, just to have it in your possession. A lot of consumers who have fallen for this have reported difficulty in stopping the charges, and in returning the CD. It's a trap that's easy to fall into but hard to dig out of.
Just curious, how much time would you say it would take the average person who has a decent understanding of how to do much of what you covered to get through all of these steps? Just a rough estimate. And how long, again, on average, after doing all of this would it take before that person starts seeing $500/month in a medium competitive niche – one that you would consider being pretty ideal?
You said that Amazon isn’t a good start for beginners, but what do you think of Azon Authority, hence in gives 90 days for the consumer, and if they pay within the 90 days, you will get your comission. And they have other things that stand a out. My question is, is this a scam-thing, because it is just too good to be true, I think. Well thank you for your time,
One of his favorite tools is Personal Capital, which enables him to manage his finances in just 15-minutes each month. If you sign up and link up an investment account with $1,000+ within 40 days, you get a $20 Amazon gift card. They also offer financial planning, such as a Retirement Planning Tool that can tell you if you're on track to retire when you want. It's free.
One endearing thing about Pat is his boyish honesty and complete transparency with how he makes money. There are a lot of online sharks and snakes out there, but Pat is not one of them. He publishes money reports where he details to the cent where every single bit of income he makes comes from. It’s been quite a journey, but I’ve seen Pat grow online from making a couple thousand dollars from an e-book to making north of $75,000 a month online.
Another popular and effective method to earning money from your website is to ad affiliate marketing links to your website. If someone purchases the product or service from the affiliate marketing link on your site you will receive a commission for the sale. This can be a great way to make big money especially if you are driving a lot of traffic to your site.
I’m not sure I understand the question entirely James, but I’ll do my best. From my experience, I firstly avoid any BROAD keywords out there, as they are very vague and do not really help me identify the niche: Health, weight loss, make money are all examples of keywords whose traffic data (which is huge) is something I would never rely on to make a site out of. 
Choosing the right ‘niche’ is an article topic on it’s own and it’s arguably the most important part of the making money with a niche website process. If you don’t pick the right niche, it will a) be difficult to get traffic because the competion for ranking your site in the SERPS will be very tough and b) there will be many other websites doing the exact same thing and c) your niche topic might not be easy to make money in.
If you don’t mind doing other people’s chores, then TaskRabbit is a great option for making money online. Earn extra income by walking your neighbor’s dog or mowing Mr. Smith’s lawn. It might seem like not the most lucrative option, but the top taskers reportedly earn as much as $7000 a month, making this a full-time way to make money online for some.
Another way to utilize your talent and business skills is to run corporate workshops online. Businesses are always looking for unique ways to help educate their workforce, and if you can package your talents into a day or half-day long session, you can sell that to companies all over the world to make money online. Start by building a portfolio and then reaching out on LinkedIn to influencers at relevant companies to see if they would be interested in you teaching their team.
Match Makers and Online Relationship Counselors help to connect people and are often hired by couples who cannot afford to visit a relationship expert. You can provide them a reliable advice if you have the skills and help them decide what is the best for them. Online dating is a big business right now and if you have the passion, you can make money online as a romantic match maker. No experience is required. Tawkify.com  is a popular match making website you can join.
Why not start a blog or web site about your experience with "Agoraphobia". You can review your medications and things that have helped you deal with your illness. Keep a log, post Q&s and monetize with Google Adsense. People will find you and you may even help a lot of people along the way. Plus I have to imagine the payout per click for an Agoraphobia keyword has to be around a dollar or so.
There are bloggers who have created a large site first and then diverted their attention in building small niche sites. That worked for them but it may not work for you. You don’t know what is going to work for you. My advise here is to create 5 small sites first and generate revenue from each. Once that happens, then create the 6th site and make it big. If the sixth site falls, you have 5 options to fall back to.
Video is growing like crazy. And more and more people are looking for professional help cutting their raw footage into viral-worthy content. If you have the right software and a bit of skill, you can easily make money online as a video editor. Check out these article of Fstoppers on how to become an online video editor and then look for relevant jobs on Mandy.com, Creative Cow Job Search, or ProductionHub.
– Project Payday is one of those sites that has testimonials of people who have earned thousands of dollars by getting paid to get trial offers. I’m not saying you’ll earn thousands, but it is legit and you can earn some extra cash. They assume that by paying you to do a free trial, you’ll either like the product and purchase it, or forget to cancel the trial and get charged for it. If you can keep track and cancel before you get charged (if you don’t want the product), then this is a great site for making some money.
Do you love getting refunds? How cool would it be to get money back on stuff you’ve already bought? Paribus is a service that lets you find out if stores you’ve shopped at online owe you a refund.  It’s free to sign up. Paribus connects to your email account and checks your receipts.  If they find out a retailer has dropped their price they file a price adjustment claim for you.  Try out Paribus.
You probably always wondered how to make money at home online, but lacked an approach. You always dreamed that you could be your own boss one day. You know if you had the opportunity or right information you can take your ideas to make money at home online and better yourself. You know you have a great idea but you just do not know how to execute it. This is not about me. This is about you. This is about taking your own ideas and making them a reality. No matter what your talent, product, hobbies or passion, this simple system is for you. This is meant for you deep within. This is your dream machine. This is what you have been waiting for in simple to follow steps.

These three points may seem like common sense, but the truth is that the people who run these scams are very good at what they do. They’ve been able to deceive many intelligent people because they present their “opportunities” so well that almost anyone will believe them. When you’re looking for a new job or extra income, it’s easy to get lulled in to a comfort zone where they can take advantage of you. Keep your guard up – always.
Great list! I’ve used Poshmark to sell clothes/accessories. You take up to 4 photos, add a description, and set a size, color, and brand. I’ve sold 3 items so far (two dresses and a pair of shoes) and it’s easy. The buyer can purchase at listing price or make you an offer, to which you can counter-offer. At all times, you can see what your profit will be from your listed price. Once the transaction is accepted, you are emailed a prepaid shipping label to print. You package your item up in a brown box and ship, and when the seller receives it your funds are released. You can cash out as a direct deposit to a bank account at any time or use the funds to shop. I’ve also purchased a pair of jeans on the site and they arrived as expected. For like-new and designer labels it’s a great way to clear your closet and make a little cash all at once.
Most of the time when a work at home job charges any sort of fee, there is a concern it's a scam. FlexJobs is the only work at home job leads site that absolutely guarantees their listings will be scam-free. They've been recommended by major media outlets like CNN, Forbes, and USA Today. I've also been a member and have never seen a single scam listed.
After having read through this article I actually went and read your article on LSI too. I must say I’ve found both extremely helpful! I had no idea what LSI even was up till now and I fear one of my sites may actually be being penalized as the same terms repeat through out each post page and may look like “keyword stuffing” from Google’s point of view, even though that was never my intention.

That is the time I realized how important it is not to bank on only one website for your revenue and income. Yes, you can make decent amount of money from blogs but depending on only one source can be very, very risky. It doesn’t matter how authority your website is since Google and other search engines don’t really care whether you are a big site or whether you are a small one. They will simply update their algorithms and if the axe falls on you, you are done.

My top tip for creating a niche website is to make your site THE authority in the niche. Niche sites are often associated with thinly produced sites with very little content. If you truly want to dominate in your space, then you need to be see as the expert. This can include high level blog posts, podcasts, videos and ebooks When a new visitor happens upon your site there should be no question what the site is about and that it can solve their problem. 

Thank you for all of this information! I am overflowing with ideas. I pray that this is God led. I am putting it in His hands. I do have one question. Will I be able to start blogging quickly after purchasing the plan of choice with the service provider you suggested. I think the plan I’m choosing runs around $6 a month. Will there be more necessary things to add (plug ins?? Idk what that is?!?) which will be costly or can I just begin getting creative? I hope I’m not bothering you. You have a wealth of knowledge!
