It’s never a bad time to start thinking about the ways you can increase your bank account balance and make some extra cash, whether it’s just for the rainy days, a bigger purchase, paying off debts or simply to relieve the anxiety of financial instability. The good news is that, today, there is a wide range of possibilities to make extra money and the choice is completely up to you.

If you don't fancy the thought of hustling to your workplace every day or you're having a difficult time securing a local gig, you’re in luck because there's never been a better time to work from home. More than 40 million Americans do it, and as the economy improves, more companies will be looking for additional staff.

The choice comes down to your own personal preferences and the amount of free time you can devote to this job. Here is a list of several suggestions that might just be the right choice for you.

Running errands

If you still think that you need to be active and do something that will actually get you out of the house, consider running all sorts of errands for other people. Since they cannot manage to do everything themselves, they will be willing to pay you to take care of some simple things like picking up their dry-cleaning, walking their dog, going grocery shopping for them etc. Also, you will be the one who will set the price and decide whether you’ll get paid daily or weekly. This is a pretty simple, yet active job which can be a great change in your daily routine if you spend most of your time at home.

Babysitting

In the sea of options, babysitting has proven to be one of the most profitable ways to earn some extra cash. Reliable babysitters are in high demand these days, and if you’re one of them, you’ll have plenty of room to negotiate your price. Busy, working parents of small children will be more than happy to pay you to take care of their little ones from time to time, just so they could have a break and go out to a restaurant for a fancy dinner while you stay at home and spend the evening dealing with noisy kids quarrelling and making a mess.

However, if you are not looking to leave the comfort of your home, there are still many options to easily and quickly make money online.

Freelancing

Freelance work covers many areas – writing, graphic or web design, video editing, photography, computer programming and digital marketing are just some of them. You will need to create a profile on freelance websites and bid for various jobs. It will take some time to get established, but it’ll worthwhile in the end when lucrative opportunities start pouring in.

Virtual assistant

If you pride yourself on your organisational skills and the ability to multitask, becoming someone’s virtual assistant could be the best choice for you. Many companies hire self-employed virtual assistants to reduce employment costs. You will perform typical office duties from home such as replying to emails, managing calendars, entering data and assisting with social media.

Taking surveys

Taking surveys is a legitimate and fun way to earn money from home that will only take a couple of hours every week. You may take an opinion poll, answer questions about shopping habits or review a product. You'll be paid in cash (PayPal or mailed check) or with points that can be redeemed for gift cards or even prizes. You should sign up to as many sites as you can. They will contact you when surveys that fit your demographic pop up, and you’ll be able to take them right away. A word of advice: watch out for scams and do not register anywhere that has a membership fee, asks for your personal information or is vague about payment.

Online tutoring

If you have a college degree and the necessary skills to tutor students online in math, science, language or social studies, this job may fit you perfectly. The pay varies depending on the site and the subject matter and some jobs require certain certifications or degrees. On the plus side, all you need is your computer and a webcam, good internet connection and you are ready to go!

Conclusion

Working from home is a growing field and opportunities are countless but bear in mind the following: it’s also important to find a balance so you don’t end up exerting yourself even more and jeopardizing your health and your family for the sake of a few extra bucks.
