Put Jam on Your Bread with Freelance Writing Jobs Online

There are millions of website owners who are crying out for content creators.

They have money to pay you to write about various topics in any niche you can think of.

There are sites where freelance writers can go to pick up “gigs”, such as Fiverr, iWriter, Upwork, and more.

But… Why would you want to create content for other people who then make money from that content? It would be better to create a website with content on it for yourself to earn money.

As you will probably know, Kindle books are ebooks that you can buy on Amazon. It doesn’t take much effort to get your ebook published on Amazon and there is a good training course you can buy that will show you how to create Kindle books and sell them on Amazon.

Why stop at one book when you can publish dozens of them? A nice little passive income can be generated with this method. Some are even making 6 figure incomes.

Turn Your Videos into Gold on YouTube

Best Stay Home Jobs - Turn Your Videos into Gold on YouTube

Vlogging, which means video blogging, is one of those new-fangled names for something we all know better as making videos. Most people like to use YouTube for this, as it’s free.

You can monetize your YouTube channel once you achieve 1000 subscribers.

You don’t have to wait until you get 1000 subscribers, though, because you can add affiliate links for products underneath each video you create.

Once you’ve achieved 1k subscribers on your channel, you have the option to put ads on your videos. YouTube ads are a great way to see a passive income coming in.

The method you’ll use with YouTube is the affiliate marketing method. It’s easy, all you have to do is stick to a niche and talk about products you recommend or products you think people should stay away from. Adding your affiliate link under the video can generate profits for you on autopilot once the video is published.

Integrate your YouTube videos on your own website and you’ll do a lot better.

Get Paid to Share Your Opinions with Online Surveys

Although I’ve had some bad experiences myself with some online survey sites, if you dig around you’ll find some reasonably good ones. Survey sites don’t typically pay that much, and you’ll have to get really busy with them to earn any decent money. I wouldn’t call this line of work a real job, though.

Sometimes, when new websites are created, the owners of the sites want some testing done on them.

It’s easy to miss a problem with a website if you’re the one creating it. That’s where the website tester comes in.

Your job as a site tester will be to spend time clicking around on a website to make sure everything works as designed.

Here’s a list of 11 such sites where you can apply to become a website tester. Some of these sites do require that you have a webcam and microphone to qualify for a job testing websites.


The pay is $10 per test and each test will take about 15 minutes to finish.

Testing Time

A variety of site testing opportunities is available with this company.

Start Blogging to Make Money Online

Best Stay Home Jobs - Start Blogging to Make Money Online

Do you remember I told you that I’d give you my top recommendation from this list of stay home jobs?

Well this is it. Blogging has many advantages and not too many disadvantages. Blogging is my particular favourite on this list.

If you start a blog, there’s a specific way to do it. You choose your niche first. A niche is a specific topic you want your blog to cover.

Then, when you’ve set up a domain using WordPress, it’s time to get creating content all about the topics in your niche.

You wouldn’t mix niches, that wouldn’t work very well at all. You don’t write about how to train your puppy on a website that is all about woodworking. They are two separate niches and should be kept apart, unless of course you know of any dogs that are quite handy with woodworking.

You’ll need to be patient, as it takes time to build up a decent income using blogging. But wow, you sure can earn a lot of money with just one website. The main method you’ll use to make money blogging is the affiliate marketing method. This is often referred to as digital marketing, online marketing or internet marketing. It’s all the same thing.

If you need to learn the methods of making money with a blog, then you should definitely check out my Wealthy Affiliate Review here. One of the very best things about Wealthy Affiliate is you start for free and they don’t ask you to give them your credit card details unless you want to go premium.

So, take Wealthy Affiliate for a spin and see if you like it. It’s brilliant. By the way, I’m a premium member at Wealthy Affiliate and I’ll be your coach when you join through my affiliate link.

  1. i joined hopper by your link paid for hero then went to your link: but its james and does not look like you at all? can you send me an email for a confirmation: luv your vids and what your doing!!

  2. Hi Jim, watched your video on Cryptohopper and signed up from your link, are you able to send me your video link to your Crytohopper settings etc. I’m keen to try them. Much appreciated.

    • yes. simply follow the instructions which I made very very clear on my landing page here >

      You should have just followed the instructions rather than coming on my website to comment because I don’t often log in to my site. You’d be up and running making massive profits already. Still, I found you 2 months later. Not my fault you didn’t listen to my instructions and just went off and did things you wanted anyways.

  3. Out of everything on this list, blogging is by far the my favorite. It’s such a low maintenance way to build an income.

    From my experience, once you get your website up and get it designed, it’s straight forward from there.

    Everyday, I wake up and try to write ONE article which takes me 15-20 minutes. The funny thing is that even though it doesn’t sound like much work, the 15-20 minute has turned into a full-time income.

    I highly recommend starting a blog. It’s actually not hard at all. Technology has made it so you can get a site up in minutes and they even make the design process easy.

    My favorite part about blogging is it’s highly profitable too! It cost me $49/month to earn 4 figures a month.

    Thanks for the share Jim, someone will surely find this post helpful!

    • Hi there, Tomas. I took a look at your site. Nice work. I recommend changing your user for the site from “admin” to your own name, as it will add authority to your site when visitors see your name in the comments. Again, good site, keep up the great work.

    • You’re most welcome, Georgina. I am really enjoying the first one where I get paid 17 cents a minute just for chatting (in English) online. I’ve been testing it out for over a month now and they’ve paid me for every single minute. It’s great.
      Take it easy,
