Become a Search Engine Evaluator

Working from home as a Search Engine/Social Media Evaluator is my favourite side hustle! The projects vary but usually involve you (an independent contractor) rating the ads you see online for £10+ an hour!

I do this through Appen and have earned over £1000 in a given month! It’s worth checking to see if they have any current vacancies and remember to apply for any project that pops up! Read more about Appen…

Respondent offer a range of work from home research projects that you can complete using your webcam, telephone or laptop.

Sell Online

Selling your unwanted items online can be a great way to earn a little extra cash, but if you want to turn your decluttering hobby into a reselling business you will need to consider the tax implications.

There are tons of ‘re-sellers’ earning a living by visiting their local charity shops and carboot sales, buying bargains and selling them online with eBay and Amazon. Find out more about selling online…

Earn with Referral Programmes

If you run a blog, consider yourself to be an influencer, or just have a good sales talk, you could be benefiting my promoting products and services. Referral programmes are great for earning some extra ££’s promoting brands, services and products that you enjoy.

Some of my favourite refer a friend options include my energy supplier (that offers £50 for each friend I refer), my online bank (that offers me £5 cash for each friend I get to sign up), and a survey site (I get 10% commission on my referred friends earnings). Earn with referral programmes…

Money Making Smartphone Apps

Some apps pay out more than others so it’s worth looking into what apps will work best for you and your circumstances. I use these apps to earn money in from of the TV, on my daily commute and in my dinner-break.

VoxPopMe (a video survey app) is one of my favourite money making apps. There are also mystery shopping apps, survey apps, receipt apps and more!

Earn Money with Surveys

Completing surveys from the comfort of your own home isn’t likely to enable you to quit your job. But it is great if you’re just looking to earn a few extra ££’s in your spare time or on your dinner break. Survey’s can also be a great opportunity for teens to earn money online.

In my experience Prolific is the best paying survey site but survey qualification is often based on your demographics so you may have more luck with a different site! See my list of the best survey websites.

Get paid to complete online tasks

I made £50 within my first hour of signing up to OhMyDosh! OhMyDosh! is a money making website where you can earn dosh for completing a variety of offers. It’s a free to use website, is a legitimate way to earn some extra cash.

Earning money with OhMyDosh is really simple. You will earn 50p straightaway for signing up, and another 50p for confirming your email. Once you’ve completed the sign up process you will be able to see all the offers available including surveys, free trials, competitions and more.


Starting your own blog is a great way to express yourself online and could give you the opportunity to make money from home. Every week I come across more and more bloggers that are quitting their 9-5 jobs and are making a living from blogging.

The most common opportunities for new bloggers to make money are through sponsored posts, paid advertising, affiliate marketing, freelance writing and product reviews. Creating your own blog is worth considering if you have some free time and want to work from home.

Matched Betting

This is a great option for earning extra money if you have some free time. Matched betting is where you claim the sign up incentives that many gambling sites offer by placing multiple bets that cover every outcome. For example a common offer is bet £10 get a £20 free bet, you can use the odds in your favour to cash out the majority of your free bet. Find out more about matched betting here…

Dropshipping is a retail fulfillment method where you don’t physically keep the products you sell. Instead, when you sell a product, you buy the item from a third-party supplier who then ships the item directly to the customer.

The only downfall to dropshipping is the time involved in finding profitable products to sell, listing them and the customer service that goes along with that, otherwise this is a great money maker.

Ask your boss to allow you to work from home

The number of companies agreeing to part- or full-time work-from-home arrangements for their employees is increasing. So if you want to work from home, and you have a good reason, don’t be afraid to ask.

Not all positions are suited to working from home, and it’s important to know that before you begin. But so many of us do work that can be completed from any location with an internet connection.

Firstly formulate a proposal — for your boss to take the arrangement seriously. Then, outline the benefits of your proposed arrangement. Show at least three ways that working from home will make you a better employee and a better asset to the company. If your boss is still unsure about remote work, is to suggest that you work from home on a trial basis.

Apply for a new work from home job

More and more workplaces are now embracing home working as the norm. If your current employer doesn’t offer you the opportunity to work from home you could apply for a role that does.

Most job sites now include an option to look for specific work from home employment opportunities.
