An Extra $1,000 a month? That’s an extra $12,000 a year that you wouldn’t have otherwise. What could you do with that?
- Pay off debt
- load up your emergency fund
- put into savings
- Save for a home
With the average person not even having $1,000 in their savings account, I know you could find a good use for an extra $1,000.
And on top of that, I’m just a fan of having multiple streams of income.
Whether we choose to admit it or not, our financial situations have an impact on almost every facet our lives.
Even a few hundred dollars is often the difference between making it until the end of the month….and falling flat on your face.
If I can be honest, in this day and age, you should probably be looking at ways to bring in more cash every month anyways unless you already have it made and sitting “O so pretty”.
This post is for those that are sitting ugly.
This post is for those that know what another $1,000 can truly do for them and where it could take them.
An extra $1,000 a month could literally determine if you will be debt free within the next year or not.
8 Simple Ways to Make an Extra $1,000 Each Month at Home.
With the internet thriving there are so many opportunities to make money.
Am I sounding a little scammy? Maybe but it really isn’t.
The reason people don’t make extra money on the internet is simply that they simply aren’t aware of the options.
So my goal is to find ways to help you bring in another stream of income without any training, new education or spending a ton of money to get
Where to Start
You know how sometimes you are faced with so many options you don’t even know where to start.
Well, that’s how finding a way to make extra money is. You have so many options it’s like huh?
I would recommend starting with something you enjoy doing.
Let’s be real if you are working a 9-5 you already hate why would you go and do something else you hate the odds of that actually being beneficial is pretty slim even if you are making money.
In this case, money isn’t everything.
I often say seek purpose, not money. I’m a 100% believer that your gift will make room for you.
If you’re going to be doing something to make money at home on top of your 9-5 (when you’re already tired from a day’s work), it had better something you really enjoy. If you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, make sure you have an exit plan to move into something that you DO enjoy. Never accept the status quo if you aren’t happy doing what you’re doing.
1. Start a Blog
My blog mentor makes over $10,000 a month from blogging and he absolutely loves it. Heck, I don’t make $10,000 a month yet but I love it.
So what do you need to do?
Well, the answer to that question is a little detailed for this simple blog post but if you want to more about making money blogging check out Starting a Blog as a Side Hustle and Working at Home.

2. Freelance Writing
Here is how this works?
Websites need content to consistently push to their audience and they don’t usually hire a ton of full-time writers.
So what they do instead is pay people like you to write content for them.
No, you don’t need to be a professional writer. But you can’t think you about to type up some crap and someone is going to pay you for it.
Anyone can produce content that someone is willing to pay for with a bit of patience and practice.

3. Online Surveys
Yes! Paid surveys are a real thing, and you can make hundreds of dollars doing them and it’s probably the easiest way for you to make extra cash online.
There are a number of online survey websites but they all don’t operate the same.
Some pay in rewards rather than cash. They may offer gift cards or some other form of “payment” so make sure you are doing your due diligence and read each site carefully.
4. Install Cell Phone Apps
You already do this so why not get paid for it.
In the name of research, companies will pay you to install apps on your cell phone and leave them there.
So what apps am I talking about?
The apps can usually be found running in the background tracking your spending and purchasing habits in the name of research.
5. Online Transcriptionist
Did you know you can earn between $15-$25/hr by transcribing audio to text?
Like seriously where do I sign up?
Before you get too excited you can’t be a pecker. What I mean by a pecker is that you can’t be the kind of typist that pecks at their keyboard using one finger.
This requires you to be a decent typist if you want to make money.
6. Online Tutor
It’s a guarantee that someone will need help with their calculus assignment or assistance writing a paper for English Comp.
So if you have a subject that you excel at, why not get paid for those brains.
There are tons of legitimate companies hiring online tutors. The pay is usually around $15+/hour.
7. Online Coach
If you have an idea or a passion that can help people, pay attention.
Whether it is motivating someone, helping them pass a class, get fit or teaching them how to build a website, this can all be done online.
Just set up you’re pricing, terms, and accept payment through something as simple as PayPal and you are on your way. I recommend using Skype or Google Hangouts since it is 100% free.
Help someone and get paid – genius.
8. Sell Your Photos Online
Do you take amazing photos?
You can actually sell your photos online at places like iStockPhoto, Shutterstock, Fotolia, and Bigstockphoto.
