Online jobs that can make you money

The pandemic has affected all industries worldwide, but not equally. While some industries have suffered a period of crisis, others have flourished – like that related to IT and online jobs.

It’s not surprising that many people have jumped on the bandwagon, taking advantage of the money-making online opportunities. Whether you want to earn a little extra or ditch your traditional job altogether, there are plenty of options to choose from.

A little extra

You might have a full- or part-time job you don’t want to quit. You might be a stay-at-home mum. You might be housebound for whatever reason. You might have some quiet and boring spells during your week. You might be a student. The bottom line is to find a way to make some extra cash online, without too much commitment. Do any of these examples resonate with you? If so, here are some ideas:

This is probably the simplest way to make money online. It is very popular especially among students, because it can be easily done in your spare time. It simply requires you to fill out some forms about services and products.

You probably know what a domain name is – it’s a website address, usually ending in .com and .net. Some are also country-specific, like or .it.

They can be easily bought for as little as $0.99 but can be sold for a lot more. Pro-tip: find domain names that have some commercial value to make a profit.

If you have a way with words, give blogging a go. Write engaging posts on a range of topics or choose your niche to build some social media presence. To make money, promote companies, services and products through your blog posts.

There are many platforms based on the ‘internet crowd-sourcing’ business principle. Depending on your skill (writing, graphic design, voice recording etc) you can access a wide range of short-time jobs worldwide and get paid good money for it.

It is usually safe and secure because most platforms act as the middle-man between you and the client.

Committed to more

If you are stuck in a rut and you are looking for a job that offers flexibility, perhaps sharing your educational knowledge with the world is the way to go!

Private tutoring is no longer limited by an in-person setting – remote (or distance) learning is a common and popular option that would allow you to make money while developing your skills, which would look great on your CV, by the way!
