Online Work from Home Jobs are very popular these days. Although Online Jobs are meant for everyone right from Working Professionals to Part Time Jobs Seekers and Students,  but for Housewives and Homemaking Moms, they are the ideal way of Making Money in their Leisure Time.

There are many Housewives who are highly qualified and talented. Most of them are capable of earning good Income. However, the only reason most of them quit the job is because it becomes difficult for them to manage Job as well as household related works and children. This is why Online Jobs become ideal for them. Following are the advantages of Online Jobs

  1. You can work from the comfort of your home
  2. Manage your time as per your convenience.
  3. No Commitments. If you have guests visiting you, you can always skip work for a day.
  4. No infrastructure or Investment needed except for your Internet Bills.

There are many ways Housewives can earn money in their free time. I am only listing out the top  ways they can Make Money Online. For making this list, I have considered various factors like Pay rates, Difficulty level, Experience Required, Availability of Jobs etc. so as to maximize the money you can make.


Below are the top ways for Housewives to earn money online

1. Make Money By Blogging

Blogging is definitely the best way of Making Money Online as you get paid for writing about things you love to do most. Many Moms who find it difficult to manage work, as well as kids, choose Blogging as a way to earn money while being at home.

Many Moms who find it difficult to manage work, as well as kids, choose Blogging as a way to earn money while being at home.  In fact because of the sheer number of these women bloggers, a new term “Mommy Bloggers” has been coined by industry experts.

From Fitness to Hobbies to Cooking, you can write about almost anything. In case you are not sure about what topic you should select for Blogging, you can check out my article about How to Select A Perfect Topic For Blogging

You can either earn through advertisements displayed on your blog or through Affiliate Marketing or through paid posts. The best monetization method differs from niche to niche.

2. Online Tutoring

If you can teach well, Tutoring is one of the best ways for making money.  While most of us know about offline tutoring wherein you teach neighborhood children for a fixed amount, very few people know you can actually teach online too. All you need is good information about the subject. Previous teaching experience is preferred by not compulsory.

There are many websites like Tutor.com which offer online Tutoring Jobs. All you have to do is register with them and start earning money.

3. Technical Freelance Jobs

As the name suggests, you need to have certain technical skills to complete these Jobs.  Data Entry, Virtual Assistant, Web Designing, SEO/SMO, Software Development, Android Development, Logo Designing, Interior Designing, 3D Modelling and Translation Expert are some of the most sought after Jobs currently. in the Online Jobs Market.

There are many websites which offer Freelance Technical Jobs. I have already listed down the Top 5 Websites For Freelance Jobs which are legitimate, free and provide ample Job opportunities. You can check out these websites to see if you have skills matching the jobs listed there.

Also to be noted, irrespective of your current experience with a particular Job, you will be treated as fresher when you join these websites. So getting your first project may not be very easy. However if you have the Talent and if you follow my guide about How To Be A Successful Freelancer you will definitely double your chances of being Successful in the Freelance world.

4. Sell Gigs At Fiverr

I have already listed Fiverr under Freelance Jobs Category and am listing it, here again, the reason being, though Fiverr essentially offers Technical Jobs, it does offer enough opportunities for Non-Technical people too.

At Fiverr, you get paid $5 for a “Gig”. A Gig is nothing but a message posted by you which tells your prospective clients what you can do for $5. For example, if you are Nutritionist you can post a Gig,

I Will Prepare a Personalized diet plan for you For $5

However this Gig is just an example, you can check out what other people are posting and what sort of Gig is more popular.

5. Make YouTube Videos

Did you know your favorite Cook on YouTube, actually earns money for sharing your favorite recipe with you?

Yes, that’s correct. With YouTube, you can make money by displaying advertisements. There are also certain YouTube channels who promote a company’s product for a fixed charge.

For example, in a cooking video, the chef may ask people to use a certain brand of spices. Or if you may have come across technology blogs which write reviews of Cell Phones and other gadgets. The popular ones among them are often paid by the companies for reviewing their product.

You can use any Random niche and make videos related to it. And if you hit the right chord with the audience, you can surely earn much more than the handful of money most of you are planning to.

However for making money with YouTube, you should have the license to promote the video. Meaning, either the video should not be copyrighted or you should be the creator/owner of the video. Movies, Songs, Trailers, TV shows etc are not allowed for YouTube Monetization scheme

6. Design And Sell T-Shirts And Bags

If you are a creative person who likes designing, you can make good money at Print On Demand (PoD) Websites.

These websites give you access to online designing tools which you can use to design T-shirts, Bags, Wallets etc. Your designs are then displayed by the website in it’s e-store.

Whenever someone buys a product designed by you, the PoD website gets your design printed on a blank product and delivers the same to the buyer.

From managing inventory, to marketing, printing and delivery of your products, everything is take care of by website. You get paid a fixed commission for your design.

The best part of these website is that they are free to register without any minimum sales committment. Even if no one buys a single product designed by you, it will still allow you to design more products.

There are many websites like Zazzle and Cafepress which you can use to design your products.

7. Complete Paid Surveys

Online Surveys are another very easy way of Making Money Online. You get paid anywhere between $0.4-$1.5 for completing a survey. In some cases, especially for countries like US and UK, the pay rates are much higher. A survey may take 10-30 minutes to complete. Usually lengthier the survey, more is the pay.

There are many websites which offer Paid surveys. But each of these websites has a minimum withdrawable amount and it is really difficult to find enough surveys to reach that amount. Therefore, for surveys, I recommend registering with only Clixsense.

The main advantage of Clixsense is that along with Surveys, it also offers Crowdflower Microjobs and few other methods of making money. This ensures you are quickly able to reach the minimum withdrawable amount which is again lower than other survey websites standing at $8 only.

For more information, you can read my Review of ClixSense along with Quick Tips for making more money in less time

8. Earn With Microjobs

Microjobs are one of the easiest ways of Making Money Online, as one does not require any skills to complete these jobs. Almost anyone who knows basics about the internet should be able to complete these jobs easily. You may be asked to Sign up for Newsletter, or share something on Facebook and Twitter, Make some forum post etc.

There are many websites which offer Microjobs. However, not all Microjobs website offer enough tasks. Therefore, I have made a list of Top 5 Microjobs Websites which you can register with for getting more Microjobs.

There are many options available for housewives to “Restart” their career . What suits you the best, depends on upon what you are good at. If you need any personalized suggestion feel free to contact me.
