Three years later and this is still popping up. Great ideas for those who are having a bit of a block as a website creator trying to go the monetizing route. I’ve always used Google Adsense and have been toying with the idea of doing affiliate marketing. I’ve signed up for click bank and shareasale for almost two years now but never utilize it. I guess I can try it out and see where that goes.
Get freelance editorial work. Maybe you don’t want the commitment of a blog but like to write or express your creativity. You’re in luck because plenty of media, corporate and nonprofit Web sites are looking for freelancers to write, edit or produce content. Some pay by word, some by the hour and some pay per project.
But, working from home proved to be way more challenging than I imagined. For one thing, it was so quiet. My cubicle at my previous job had been smack-dab in the center of the hallway, where people would stop and chat all day long. I got used to the chatter, the incessant ringing of phones, people slurping their soup—all of it. So, now, being at home (a home that’s surrounded by woods, mind you), the silence was deafening.
Video Production: If videography is your hobby, this is a great business idea. You can offer to make, edit and download videos (online or to DVD) for your clients. You will need professional equipment. Display your portfolio on your own website.
All great ideas! Not sure if you left multi-level marketing off on purpose, but I’ve recently started taking a nutritional supplement called Thrive, and due to the amazing results (tons of energy, great sleep, calming of aches and pains, etc.) I’ve started working as a promoter. There is absolutely no requirement to pay anything to sign up, you don’t even have to stock the product, it is a cloud-based business where the customers order online and receive the product directly from the If you get two people to sign up with autoship, you get your product free. Even if you pay for the product it is only about $5 a day, less than a cup of coffee in the U.S. So far I’ve been really impressed.
If you have a way with words and know how to make the keyword-friendly, beautifully designed, SEO-optimized landing pages, why not charge other companies for your services and turn it into a money-making side business idea? Even a short landing page is worth a couple hundred bucks in most cases, and so much more if you know how to pitch your prospects well.

If you’re just looking for a few extra bucks here and there, it’s easy to sell unwanted items from around your house. If you’re looking for more money, it pays off to get into selling bigger ticket items — especially since you have to cover the costs of shipping.
I surprisingly get a lot of people asking to detail their car. I never intend to make a business of it, but I love doing it to my cars and people ask me to do it to theirs. All it takes is a cheap orbital buffer (mines a used craftsman) and a shop vac. I normally get easily $100 for a basic wash/wax/vac, or $200 to remove scratches and polish then wax the car.

Those with fluency in more than one language translate audio files or documents, not just word for word, but often with cultural differences in mind. “Companies can access home-based translators with hard-to-find language skills without being held back by geographic location,” says Fell.
