#10. Private Teaching

Apart from teaching on YouTube and through other sites, there is another strategy to teach and make money online.

In this respect, you can get private tuition classes at your home , with a client. Choose your schedule, if you have some imperative routine tasks.

How do we do this?

Alternatively, you can go for online tutoring and earn $20 per hour on Chegg Tutors. You can do this anywhere; online and offline so far you are being paid for working from home.





#11. Use a Different Search Engine

Someone might be asking; what has this to do with making money online?

But the real question should be; how do I make money from this?


I’m pretty sure you make use of a search Engine.

At least Google or Bing. Or maybe Yahoo; for those that know what it means.



But to cut the story short, just opt in for Bing search engine. But unfortunately, some of these mentioned features are not available in some countries at the moment. But there are still many other work from home jobs that I will keep sharing:

Conduct your regular searches on Bing, make it your default search engine, and earn credits that can be redeemed for gift cards. You can earn as much as $5 to $10 per month. Tip: Just stay signed-in, when you perform a search.

Another option is Nielsen Digital Voice. Digital Voice is a part of Nielsen – the big company that publishes T.V. ratings. Just surf the web and you may be able to start earning money.

You can now make money online for watching videos including movie previews, news, celebrity videos, and all kinds of other videos of your choice.

Websites like Swagbucks ask you to watch certain videos and like them. You have to watch for a certain number of minutes which you’ll be told ahead of time. You could earn over $200 a month. But the certainty waves, as the earning vary so much. But it isn’t a bad work from home job.

It makes some sense getting paid for just surfing the videas and liking them. Most times, videos that you ought to have watched without being told.
