Since so many workplaces are closed or limited due to lockdown restrictions, more people than ever before are looking online to find ways to make extra money right from home.
Here, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best ways to make money online with the skills you have now.
One of the great things about the internet is how easily it allows us to share knowledge across borders. If you’re an expert in a particular subject or if there’s just something you think you can contribute to in your field, consider selling an online course.
Another way you can share your knowledge with the world is with a blog dedicated to your area of expertise. Bloggers typically earn money by placing ads on the site.
Most of us have items in our closet that we'd like to get rid of, but throwing out an old dress or vintage pair of shoes may feel like a waste if it’s still in good condition. One great way of making some extra cash is to sell the items cluttering up your home.
Stock photography is a great alternative for artists looking for a side hustle. If you have a professional-grade digital camera, you can sell your high-resolution shots on dozens of sites. Some of the most popular are Shutterstock, Getty Images, Dreamstime, and iStock.
With the recent rise in distance learning, there are many opportunities to create a side hustle in online tutoring with students of all ages. Math and science tutors may be the most popular, but tutors in all subjects are in demand, including ESL tutors for language learners.
The rise of “crowdlending” is just another example of how the internet has shaken up practically every sector of the economy.
Before, someone looking for a personal loan had to go to the bank, credit union, or payday lender. If the person didn’t have good credit, they’d have to deal with high interest rates if they were approved for the loan at all.
Now, peer-to-peer (P2P) lending websites match borrowers with lenders who are just regular people like you.

It’s not just big-name selling platforms that are making a profit. Smaller eCommerce sites are raking in cash, too. To get a piece of the pie, you have to create your own site. Luckily, it doesn’t take much to get started.
You don’t have to sell custom products. Dropshipping platforms make it easy to sell in-demand goods without ever holding a product in your hands. But if you want to have ultimate control over your business and profit margin, you might have to get more creative with your market.
