The place to start here is with Amazon Mechanical Turk. They have an incredible number of opportunities, so it’s very likely they’ll have work for you. You might be rating the search results for certain keywords, reworking an article, or translating something from one language to another.

You’ll be paid a few dollars for each assignment. The more you can do, the more you can earn. If you have the time and the motivation, you could easily make $100 a day, working on your own schedule.

9. Become a Virtual Assistant

One of the prime strategies in business today is to outsource work wherever possible. Many employers, particularly small ones, don’t have enough work to warrant a full-time job. But they may parcel that works out to virtual assistants. You can become a VA with just about any type of skill. Administrative skills are most in-demand, and usually involving working on very specific projects. Many times, those projects will be assigned because the business owner either lacks the time or the skills to perform them.

Sites like Upwork or Zirtual can keep you pretty busy. Compensation runs between $10 per hour to as much is $100, depending on the skill. More typical skills will be at the lower end of the pay scale, while specific marketing or web related skills will pay on the higher end.

10. Working on YouTube

Lots of people are creating videos on YouTube as a hobby. But some are earning money, and some are earning a lot of money. You can create videos yourself, promote them, and then monetize them through Google Adsense. You’ll get paid every time someone clicks on an ad on your video. The more clicks, the more you’ll make. If you get several videos going, you’ll be earning ad revenue from various sources.

There are different ways you can do this. Perhaps the most popular way is by promoting music videos. The revenue can be heavy with videos using popular music. But getting the licensing agreements from the artists is extremely difficult. A better route might be to promote local talent. These can be small artists who are looking to be promoted. If they have good music, and you can create compelling videos around their songs, you can earn a steady income.

Yet another way is to create educational videos. Pick a subject or skill you’re knowledgeable in, and create a “how to” video. You can also use this kind of video to promote a specific product or service that you offer.

All around, this is probably the most flexible and creative way to earn money online. YouTube even provides support to help you get started.

11. Online Data Entry

This actually is a real thing. Many large companies, particularly insurance companies and travel-related businesses, hire at-home workers to handle both customer service and online data entry. You can find these jobs on company websites by entering “work-at-home” in the search box of their employment pages.

You can also go through dedicated websites, such as Upwork. And sometimes online data entry jobs are available through Craigslist, or popular job boards like Monster.

12. Become an Online Translator

A website called Proz.com can help you get paid to translate documents and even conversations. You can choose a language you’re comfortable with. Some include Spanish, German, Chinese, Italian, Japanese, and Arabic. If you have the ability to translate technical documents, like legal and medical documents, you’ll command the highest pay.

13. Sell Your Computer Skills

Everybody’s looking for computer skills, but not every business can afford regular employees. If you have above-average computer and Internet skills, this can be an opportunity for you.

Experts Exchange has more than 500,000 experts who participate on the site. They offer assistance with web design and development, SEO and marketing, graphic design, and other technical skills. You could be one of them.

14. Buy and Sell Websites

You may have to release your inner entrepreneur to make this one happen, but it can be lucrative if you have an eye for an online bargain. Sites like Flippa.com list websites and domains for sale. You might be able to pick up a domain for $10 and sell it for $1,000. Or you might be able to buy an inactive website for $1,000, reactivate it, and sell it for $10,000.

15. Affiliate Marketing on Your Blog

Blogging is not your typical online job because you don’t work for someone else when you’re a blogger. You get the flexibility of working for yourself but you don’t get paid immediately. As you grow your traffic and your audience, you can earn money as an affiliate for other companies or advertising revenue.
