Want to make money while staying at home? There’s a few ways that you can do that, and today we give you five of them.
As the British public faces lockdown once again with several tightened restrictions placed on them till the end of March, many countries around the world are still facing the same fate. As restaurants, pubs, and several shops are closed you must think more creatively than spending time on social media.
You can try to put this time to good use by trying to make some money. Try your hand at proofreading documents, renting out your driveway, and many other things.
Let’s check out some easy ways to make money without moving away from home
1. Driveway renting
A lot of people are doing away with public transport and opting to use their cars for safety reasons. However, they are facing a problem that the office car parks are unable to cope with this additional demand. You can earn some extra cash by renting out your empty driveway in the form of a parking place for your neighbors.
You can also find several websites and apps that can be used to connect with people having unused driveways. People looking for a parking spot can use Stashbee, Kerb, or JustPark for this reason. In most cases, you will be able to set the price although some companies will ask for a cut. In London, you can charge 300 pounds for renting out a parking place.
2. Remote nursing jobs
Although remote nursing work may have been a pipe dream for several people in the past, the advent of technology and the fast-growing acceptance of virtual work across several industries mean healthcare positions such as nursing have become more prevalent than ever.
If you are a qualified nurse having passed the NCLEX RN exam, you can provide telephonic advice, support, and complete follow-up services for the patients. You can also work in the fields of recruiting and case management. Remote nurses are in huge demand among people living in rural areas and elderly people.
3. Online tutoring
You will find that online tutors are in great demand for the parents trying to home school their children. You will typically find that you can make something in the region of 20 to 30 pounds an hour by using a platform such as Tutorful.
There are several postings on job sites offering in the excess of 50 pounds per hour for specialized tutors. If you can use an online tutoring firm you will be forced to pay some fee. You may offer tutoring services in any subject and a lot of them do not need any teaching qualifications. Job postings many times ask for availability on weekends and evenings therefore, you need to fit this work around your other responsibilities.
4. Virtual assistant
You can also get paid for helping out different businesses in scheduling their social media posts, preparing mailing lists, and sorting files. Becoming a virtual assistant is a good side gig because it is one of the highest money-making second jobs out there. The work pays $16 per hour on average.
Most job postings advertising these job opportunities are only asking for part-time workers. This makes it simpler to arrange the work around your first job.
This work is for people that have good grammar and a minute eye for detail. If you possess these skills you will be greatly valued by several publishers. It is possible to earn something in the region of 15 pounds an hour on an average, according to reports from Adzuna.
If you can just work for five hours every week you may make an additional 300 pounds. It is a healthy addition to your bank account every month even after tax. Websites such as Worksome and Upwork allow you to bid for the jobs and they can help you in creating a contract as well. Different businesses offer fixed-priced jobs on other websites such as PeoplePerHour.
