Are you ready to make some real money moves?

The desire to work from home greatly increased with the onset of the pandemic. Many people were forced to do so because of the high-risk spread of COVID-19 and didn't want to return to the office even when they were allowed or requested back. However, working from home is more than just the new wave for full-time work. There is also a work-from-home side hustle opportunity. 

Fortunately, we are in a technological era that allows us to learn, communicate, and work remotely via our computer or cell phone. With such flexibility, here are six ways to boost your income while working from home.


Freelance Work


What's your skill? Are you great at creating logos, writing, engineering music, or video editing? Whatever it may be, use your skills to help increase your cash flow. 


Here are two websites that you can use to start freelancing and boosting your income.


  • Fiverr
  • Upwork


Social Influencer


Social influencers like Addison Rae, Charli D'Amelio, and Khaby Lame are well-known social media influencers making millions of dollars per year to display their life or "content" to the world through different social media platforms. While making millions of dollars from social media may sound ideal, it is essentially a full-time job. However, you can still be a part-time social influencer and bring in some extra income.  

Social influencers make the bulk of their money via advertising campaigns. For example, known Brand X will pay you $1,000 to make a post promoting one of their new products. The amount of money you make per post is a mixture of a few factors, including your user engagement and your follower count, which identifies you as a nano (100 to 10,000 followers), micro (less than 100,000 followers), or macro (100,000 to 1,000,000 followers) influencer. 


If you have a passion or hobby, such as cooking, fashion, or teaching a skill to others, recording and displaying the content could be a win-win. You get to do what you love and make money.


Here are the top social media networks to become an influencer: 




Sell Your Crafts 

Turn your creative side into a profitable side hustle. If you have ever made a product that can be useful to others, take advantage of the opportunity to expand on it. Once you are ready, here are two great websites where you can sell products of all kinds, such as digital, homemade, vintage, and much more.


  • Etsy
  • Shopify


Online Surveys 


Any time you make a purchase or have contact with a brand online, they usually follow up and ask you to complete a survey. While some people love providing feedback to brands or individuals, others skip right over doing the survey. But what if you were paid to complete surveys online? My guess is that you'd take advantage of the opportunity to make extra income by providing your opinion. 


If completing online surveys sounds like an ideal side hustle to you, here are three free sites that you can use to get started.


  • Swagbucks 
  • InboxDollars
  • Survey Junkie
