Making Money at Home in 2024

Just because we’re in 2024 doesn’t mean people aren’t still looking to replace their income from their nine to five to something a little bit more flexible. In fact, the pandemic, which began 4 years ago, has shown us that we are able to work flexibly and smartly.

Unfortunately, employers and office landlords haven’t caught up to that motion yet, which means we’re all still looking for ways to make money without having to commute to work, sit in an office for 8 hours, and then commute home again. That leads to a life of exhaustion and nobody wants to live like that.

The good news is that there is no shortage of legitimate work from home opportunities. You just have to find them. Can you make money blogging in 2024? Absolutely. In the same way you can still make money from influencing on Instagram, you can still make money blogging in 2024.

Just because it’s the new year doesn’t mean that you can’t do it. And in fact, blogging still has plenty of avenues for you to conquer. Especially because people aren’t just having to build their own blog websites anymore when you can look for other people remotely.

It’s no surprise that the number of people who work from home has tripled in the last couple of years, and it’s because of the fact that people can be more flexible, they get to spend more time with their kids, and there are fewer distractions. Not everybody wants to sit in an office with the same amount of people all the time, so working from home seems like a great compromise.

Let’s take a look at how you can still make money from home in 2024.

Renting A room. If you have a spare bedroom or a basement that you really use, you can rent it out to other people and have the money coming in from that income. You can create a listing that shows off the features and the amenities in the space, and you can keep the keys in the lock box outside the building. This way people can easily access the space without having to disturb you and your family. If you have a granny flat on the premises, you could use this as an Airbnb and you can hire a cleaning company to keep it in good shape.

Tutoring. If the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that tutoring still offers excellent opportunities. Expertise in a specific subject is really going to help you to earn an income without having to try too hard. You can tutor children or adults online, and if you have specialist information such as medicine entry tests, you can help tutor for those as well. Advertising your services in schools or on social media will help you to build your client list.

Becoming a virtual assistant. As a virtual assistant, you can provide a range of admin services to perform, support your clients remotely. You could book travel, update your social media, manage your databases and answer emails. You can work for multiple clients if you want to. And you can develop your skills and the type of clients that you serve by using virtual assisting opportunity websites. Get on to social media and let people know what you are doing so that they can hire you too.

Blogging. Whether you run your own blogging website or you choose to blog for other people, you can still earn money by running blogs. Freelance writing should definitely be on your radar if you enjoy it, but if you don’t want to work full time, you can create marketing, creative or technical blog content in the form of pages, blogs, brochures, adverts and more. Your clients may be startups, small businesses, or even larger enterprises who want to get more content out there. Content is still king and businesses do know it.

Social media management. There are plenty of businesses out there depending on social media to build their brands. And if you are social media savvy and you understand Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and TikTok especially, you’re going to get paid to manage social media accounts for those small businesses. It doesn’t have to take very much on your part, just a love of creating and the ability to manipulate these particular platforms. The way that will work for the business itself, it would be your job to create and post the content while engaging with fans and followers.

Taking online surveys. There are plenty of companies out there that still value honest feedback from others so that they can make informed business decisions. If you want a work from home opportunity that’s easy to sink into that you could do while the baby is napping or while you’re watching TV, online surveys can help. If your phone is in your hand, you may as well make some money from it.

Running your own daycare. A good way to make money at home in 2024 that doesn’t involve you being online all the time is to run an in-home daycare. If you love kids or you’re happy to watch your own children at home and at home, daycare is usually a more affordable option than a traditional daycare center. You can attract a steady client base, especially if you only have room for one or two children at a time. The amount that you earn will very much depend on several factors, including your capacity, your location, and the ages of the children. Almost all in-home Daycare providers charge a flat daily or weekly rate, and if you can Chuck in school run help, you’re going to earn more money than you think.

Drop shipping. You might think that the ball has dropped on drop shipping, but it hasn’t. You can sell products without keeping inventory on hand. When this happens, after customers make a purchase from your online store at a retail price, you’ll forward their order to a supplier and pay them the wholesale price. This means that the supply will then take care of the shipping and you’ll be able to keep the profit.
