Over 3 000 Ways to Make Money from Home – List of Lists!
1. Make money from home from doing Internet research work
To create this list of lists totaling over 3 000 ways to make money from home or ways to earn extra income, I had to do a bit of Internet research first – well, quite a bit actually. I can make money from that Internet research work that I did. Just having this new page of useful information on our site helps draw visitors to our site. We have ads on our site, affiliate links, and services that we offer. We can earn from all of that, but another way to make money from home from doing Internet research work is to offer it as a service to others. Other people need Internet research work done, and may not have the time to do it themselves. People want to know something (or many things) and instead of looking for that information on the Internet themselves, and taking notes on what they find, they can pay you to do so.

Freelance Job Sites, like oDesk and eLance
Set up your profile, have a look around the freelance site to get used to how it works, and wait for invitations to apply for freelance jobs, or, rather, have a look at the many available freelance jobs and apply for many freelance jobs that you think you’ll be able to do well, and wait to see if you get invited for an “interview” (usually via email or a messaging system within the freelance job site). Many of the freelance jobs on freelance job sites are often related to writing or websites or website marketing. Have a look at some of the freelance jobs available – many can be done even if you have little or no experience – some just take time, and busy individuals or businesses are willing to pay for your time.

Repackage 10 per new smaller package and sell packs of ten for R75 or more (make a R25 or more profit per ten items) – or even sell the items individually. Things to consider buying in bulk and then repackaging into smaller packs or selling individually include: small toys, sweets, beads and other jewelry making items, inexpensive jewelry items, accessories, cooldrinks, chips, stationery, inexpensive fashion make-up, gift boxes, gift packets, gift tags, greeting cards, containers.

Important Note: We advise that you do not risk paying money to join anything, start anything, or buy anything especially if you’re already struggling for income. Rather consider trying free methods of making money from home or online first. You could always consider trying ways to make money from home that are not free at a later stage, when you are in a better position to afford to risk spending money on something. Also, always first go through all information or terms and conditions very carefully, especially when also parting with your money, or when you are considering spending a large amount of time on something.
Be sure to check if anything that you plan to join is definitely available to the country you live in (so that you can get paid by the place or program).
You may have to get a Google Adsense account for some of the ways to make money (be sure not to sign up too early – there are certain requirements that need to be met before your Google Adsense account application will be accepted, and if it is rejected the first time you sign up, it can be extremely difficult to be accepted upon second application when you have a history of a rejected Google Adsense account application).
You may need to get a PayPal account to receive some payments – South Africans can receive payments from PayPal through getting a PayPal account, an FNB online banking account, and linking the two together.
Disclaimer: I have not tried all the work from home ideas or used all the tips given in the sites or articles linked to or mentioned above. Use the ideas and tips at your own risk. Anything you wish to join, be sure to go through terms and conditions carefully. We absolve ourselves from any issues or problems arising from you visiting any sites or joining any sites or programs or buying any products.
