It is every ones dream to make extra money especially to cover the monthly needs in your home. Paying bills, rents, fuel, interests, bla bla every month goes like this. You may have a source of income already and expecting to see more than it. In general, every one wants financial freedom in life and not everyone achieves the same. You may have to stick to the only source of income through out the life.
When there are opportunities available in this world, why don’t you try something new ?
In life, when you are taking new things, you feel happy, you feel secured and it gives satisfaction too. Setting up an extra money system is not so hard in this world. You already have a computer and an Internet connection, that’s a great capital. Yes, with your computer you could do many things to earn extra sitting from home.
I am not explaining a “get rich” kind of stuff, keep in mind: when you need income, you have to work.
Some times, you have to work hard too. From my past experience, i would say when you have Time and basic Knowledge about online business, you could definitely earn. Dedicating time with the right knowledge is required here.
This article helps you people to understand the various opportunities to make extra money from your home and definitely, don’t expect to become rich sooner.
First, Do You Have Extra Time ?
The very first question to you: Do you have enough time to work ?
Will you be able to sit in front of your computer for at least 1-2 hours per day ?
If yes, you are qualified.
Because time is more important than anything else in the world. People do start their work and they could not continue it due to lack of time. When you are already working in a day job, you have to prepare yourself to find extra time. Plan your day. Allocate time for online works. Don’t just take it lighter, think your online business jobs are same like the real day job then only you could dedicate time. At the same time, when you are full time in home, prepare yourself to sit in front of the computer, that’s it.
Opportunities To Make Extra Money.
The are many opportunities for an individual to make extra money by working from home. Online works are highly comfortable to you and your lifestyle because you could work anytime as well as you could work from anywhere (even from outside your home). That’s great right ?
The opportunities that i am going to explain in this article are “nothing new” and “non-get rich” kind of opportunity. So don’t expect to make too much of money.
As we are speaking about online business for beginners, you must understand about the investments too. Every business definitely needs an investment in terms of money and hard work. Here you don’t need larger investment, even with less than $100 you could setup your online business.
It is also possible to start with zero to little investment however, you have to sit and work hard.

Sell Your Knowledge – Online Jobs.
The very first method is freelancing. Its about working with “virtual Internet office” similar to real world office. Basically, you have to get hired by virtual employers and get paid for the work done. All you need to sell your skill set.
- For example, if you already know graphics design then you could advertise yourself as a graphics designer in a freelance web site. Employers, when they see your profile matching their requirements, you may get hired. And you will be assigned with graphic designing works. You have to complete the work on-time with quality output as expected. Finally, you will be paid. You will be paid per hour basis or some times based on the completion of assigned tasks too.
If you are thinking this as large scale business, you could open your own service business over Internet. Setup a web site, tell about your skills and experience. Tell people that you are available as paid server for them.

Start Developing Smart Phone Apps.
Its smart phone era and people are going crazy behind Smartphone Apps. iPhone and Android are much popular in the market. People are ready to spend money to download their favorite apps.
- You work here is: to develop creative apps. A simple app which solves any user problem would be great. If you charge $1 per download and if your app gets 1ooK download, you make will ~$1ooK !
The steps are damn simple:
- Have a creative app idea which solves a problem (say, a money planner app).
- Develop the app (design, coding, testing). You could hire a developer from freelancing web sites or develop yourself (if you do programming).
- Upload to app store (Apple store or Play Store) and get it approved.
- Find app related web stores on Internet, contact them and promote your app for more downloads.
