7 Unique Ways to Make Money from Home

If your circumstances indicate that it would be better for you to generate an income whilst at home, there are many ways in which this can be achieved. Working from home will save on costly overheads, such as leasing property, staff wages and transport to and from work. In the current financial economic climate, the workforce is constantly changing. Establishing a home based business is a smart strategy. Making money from home is suitable for all ages; stay at home mums, retirees, the incapacitated, the healthy and actually, anybody at all. It may be challenging at the outset, but the eventual rewards will be worth the effort.

Call Centre

Call centres redirect their calls to home based individuals. If you love talking with people on the phone and have a good telephone manner and can collate information efficiently, you could make money this way. You will need a quiet uninterrupted area to work from.

Selling unwanted items online

The best way to begin is to sell all your unwanted household and personal items online. There are several online auction and classified sites where you can begin. Make sure your uploaded photos are clear and include a concise description of the product for sale.


If you have a talent, whether it be making crafts, are an accomplished musician or have teaching experience, tutoring may be the perfect way to make some extra money. You can choose the hours to suit you. You could organise to have a weekly craft group where you can pass on your knowledge and skills. You could teach budding musicians skills on instruments or help students by tutoring in various school subjects.


With so many families where both parents have to work and childcare centres filled to capacity, childcare has now become a booming home based industry. There are regulations to follow but many parents prefer to have their child looked after in a home environment.

Daily Tasks

Time poor people prefer to let others do the day to day tasks. You could establish a laundry/ironing/alteration service from home. You can feed or walk pets. If you feel you have an inner masterchef, perhaps you could cater for small parties.

Freelance writing

There are many online job boards for freelance writers. To begin marketing yourself, send samples of your writing to these companies. This will take commitment and persistence.

Making and selling crafts

If you are creative, there are many online sites that specialise in selling craftwork of all kinds. You can list your items for a small fee and join these sites which have a huge following of lovers of handmade items.
There are many other unique forms of home based businesses. Decide what type of business you would like to see yourself in and do your research. It is also important to establish a schedule when working from home. If you have left the workforce, your skills as a typist could be put to good use doing resumes, data entry or transcriptions. You could also do small run digital printing jobs from home. Making money from home can be a very rewarding experience.
