For most business owners and employees, working from home has swiftly become a new way of life for many of us amid these uparelled times. With this newfound amount of time being spent both living and working at home, you may be curious to know what other alternative ways there are to boost your current income. 


Buy and Sell Apps

Free online shopping apps have rapidly grown in popularity as a quick money-making method among many, ranging from selling old clothes to unwanted electronics. Another man’s trash is another man’s gold: it’s a practicable solution for selling any unwanted items for some quick cash. It takes seconds to create an account from your cell phone and can become an effective additional source of income once you build your online shop up with a substantial amount of items and followers. 


Ecommerce Dropshipping

Drop shipping has similarly become an efficient method to make money from home due to its convenience. An ecommerce website purchases items from a third party supplier who then fulfills the order, meaning that you don’t have to handle large amounts of physical items and you can easily make profit from home through reduced operational costs. A few top tips in building a successful online drop shipping business is to select a niche that is high in demand, offer low shipping prices for customers, and to choose trusted dropshipping suppliers.



If you love to help others learn, tutoring English from home is an ideal option for extra income. Providing that you are qualified to teach children, it can be a rewarding experience and only requires a computer and reliable WiFi. What’s more, you can choose working hours that are flexible in terms of your own personal schedule, allowing you to balance your existing working hours if necessary. Online tutoring isn’t just limited to languages – you can help others with their education, or even hobbies and skills such as learning a new instrument or cooking.


Helping Others through Online Services

In times such as these, helping others is an act that has never been more monumental. There are a variety of websites where you are able to demonstrate your skills and services online to people and businesses alike, such as babysitting, caregiving, cleaning, animal care, or creative and digital skills like designing, programming, or writing. It’s also worth seeking out businesses and bloggers who may require virtual assistants to manage their social media or assist with freelance roles that may be relevant to your skill set. 


Travel and Home Amenities 

Generating extra income doesn’t have to halt after we are through the other side of the pandemic – there are a number of side hustles you can try when we eventually return to normal, safer times. If possible, you can temporarily rent out your home while you are away, or even rent out your car for a day. If you are qualified, drive shares through trusted phone apps and food delivery roles can also be ideal ways to make extra cash while being able to work around your own schedule.
