Sometimes, being a “stay at home” can be very challenging without a proper source of income or an extra source of income depending on your situation.

The good news is, there are actually ways you can still get to make money right from the comfort of your home.

And like always we have done our due diligent research and came up with these Legitimate ways that you can use to earn money from home.

No matter what you are looking for, we do hope you find something in the list that will be beneficial to you, and if you also happen to know anyway that is not listed here, you can drop us a note in the comment section so that we can include it to help others.


Online Surveys

This is one of the oldest methods by which money can be made online from home, in this method you get to sign up with different survey platforms, fill in your profile and sign in.

When there is an available survey that matches your profile, the company will send you an email to join in or you can always log in to your account to check for available surveys.

After taking part in each survey, you will be notified if you qualify or not and if you do, the set amount of money will be paid into your survey account.

When you reach the minimum amount set for withdrawal, you can then withdraw your money. Some survey sites also pay with gift cards.

Every survey panel has their various terms and condition, make sure to check them out before signing up.

Have in mind that surveys are most Suitable for people looking to make an extra bit of cash.

Notwithstanding, if you look to make a full-time income from filling out surveys you must make sure to sign up with numerous panels, especially those that pay well and have a lot of time at hand as this will require you filling out surveys endlessly for hours.

The downside to this is that your profile and demography goes a long way to determine the kind of surveys you get to participate in.

For example, someone with a doctorate degree and owns or manages a company will have better chances with higher-paid surveys than someone who has lesser qualifications.

Below we have listed a few of the good ones, some of which I have actually participated in:

Please check out our !80 ways to make money for more details of survey websites you can check out.



There are two ways you can go about this;

Online Tutoring

You can get to impact your knowledge on whatever topic you are good at, to students all over the world. Be it maths, English, science, guitar, chemistry, yoga and even foreign languages, whatever you are passionate about teaching.

All you will need is a computer with an internet connection and video call application.

You sign up with a tutoring website and submit your application and get to choose what works best for you. And even how much you want to be paid per hour.

Home Tutoring

This works best on a one-to-one basis/private session, where you make arrangements to tutor students with specific needs or extra support in your chosen subject.

You can register with the agency that deals with private tutoring in your area. Or better still spread the word around, though this might take longer time to be effective.

Given the situation of our world today with the ongoing pandemic, we are not sure how effective or acceptable home tutoring will be at this moment.

Below are some websites you might want to look into:

Earn Through Cashback

How great will it be for you to still earn money from the shopping you do! That’s what cashback is all about.

Cashback sites pay you from pennies to hundreds of pounds when you do your shopping using their sites.

All you need to do is sign up with a cashback site, then when you want to make a purchase, you search for the retailer through the cashback site and make your purchases using the link on their site.

The merchant pays them for your shop, they will, in turn, track your purchases and pay you back some percentage of this money they received from the merchant.

This can take between weeks to months, depending on their terms of payment

When this is done, you can then make withdrawals.


while using a cashback site is very good for savings, you might want to check with other retailers not registered under cashback sites to compare the prices of products before purchasing.

For example, you are looking to buy a mobile phone from a retailer in cashback site for £500 to get a cashback of about £50, then you do some research and find this same phone for £400 in a non-cashback site.

You might want to consider the latter option as this saves you more cost. Below are top-ranking cashback sites you might want to consider:




Get Paid For Using Your Phone And Other Media App

If you are comfortable to have an app installed in your phone and other media equipment that monitors the daily usage of your phone, radio, t.v., and other media apps, then this is definitely for you.


Incompass will pay you a £20 voucher for the first month and £10 voucher for every other month you participate in their program.

All you need to do is sign up with them, then you download their mediacell+app on your smartphone and incompass app on your other electronic devices.

This apps then monitors your behaviour and transmits to them how you use your phone, watch t.v., listen to the radio and on what kind of devices you do all these things.

Signup With Neilson Consumer Panel

Neilson Consumer Panel will pay you to scan your household purchases and send to them which they use in marketing research.

All you have to do is sign up with them and they send you a hand scanner, you use this scanner to scan the bar codes on all your purchases and send it to them on a weekly basis.

You can also try out their mobile phone panel, in which case you have to download their Neilson app on your phone, that allows them to monitor your internet usage and you get rewarded for as long as you participate.

Write An E-book

If the idea of becoming a self-published author appeals to you, then you most certainly want to give this a go!

Write an e-book on something that appeals to you or something you are passionate about, making sure it’s something that will be helpful to the readers. i.e. creating solutions to a given set of problems.

You will want to make sure you have a high-quality content that is well-structured and grammatically error-free ( you can use an app like Grammarly), and should at least be up to 25pages or more.

You can most certainly achieve this using the amazon’s kindle direct publishing platform for free.

This can be very beneficial as it is a good source of passive income, which is generated in the form of your royalties for years to come.


Being A ChildMinder

If you are the type that loves taking care of kids or even just having them around you, then this will definitely be fun for you!

Not only will you get the opportunity to spend time with kids and have fun with them, but you also get paid loads for doing so!

Childminding can be a very good way to earn a full-time income as many parents will prefer their kids being in a private setting with a very limited number of kids to having them go to other bigger school environments.

You will want to make sure your home is child proofed and you need to also register with the necessary authorities involved.

With the situation of the world now with the ongoing pandemic, we don’t know how efficient this will be now, you may need to consult your local authority to find out the possibility.


Become An English Tutor Online

There are lots of people from different countries of the world looking to learn English to improve their communication skills, either for business purposes or leisure.

So if you have a TELF CERTIFICATION, you can as well leverage this opportunity.

The good thing about this is that you get to choose what time soothes you and how much you want to earn per hour.

Note: you will need a computer or laptop with an internet connection and a video call app, most preferably Skype.

You can sign up with one of the numerous platforms that look to connect you with employers who are looking for your skill.

Be you a web developer, writer, accountant, graphics designer, IT professional, financial adviser or even a translator. Whatever you are good at, there is always someone who needs your services.

When connected with an employer or someone who needs your services, you get to bid with them and if accepted, you then get a contract.

Always have in mind that starting out will be difficult as you have to compete with other well-established people in the same area of expertise.

The truth is that there are many legitimate ways to earn money online. The problem I see with them is that most of them pay only very small amounts of money for a lot of time and effort.

After having been online for several years, I believe a person just as well spend the same amount of time online doing something with a higher income potential. I think the best way for most beginners is to learn affiliate marketing. Learning about affiliate marketing teaches you how to build a website which must be the core of all internet businesses, how to write, and many other useful skills to carry to other ways to earn money from home.

    so true Mike, affiliate marketing is definitely the most lucrative way to earn money from home. But not everyone might have the patience, time and hardwork to put into it. Hence the reason for other options. It just has to do with a personal decision..

Well everyone wants ways to make money. I do belong to a lot of cashback sites. Well it seems stupid not to. I’m going to buy the product anyway. I usually use the earnings for Christmas. This is always the most expensive time of the year.
I don’t like the idea of the apps that spy on you for marketing purposes though.
What I did like is the idea of online tutoring and I’m going to look into that.
So thanks for the advice.
