I don’t often host guest posts, but my posts from Jon at The Money Shed about how to earn money online from home are always really popular, so he’s back today with a few more ideas for you.

So, you want more money in your life so you can do more things with the family or go on nice holidays to sunny places far, FAR outside the UK but getting ‘that money’ is where the catch is!

My name is Jon and I run a website called The Money Shed which is all about helping people to earn money online from home. I’ve run it for over 5+ years now and as the UK’s largest community website dedicated to earning from home I like to think I know what I’m talking about!

Now in the past I’ve written for Jo about everything from How to earn thousands of pounds doing Risk Free Matched Betting through to 4 ways you can earn money from home that don’t include surveys or click-sites! I know you’re keen to make money online, and while there definitely are strategies to increase your chances of winning at bingo if you like to have a bit of fun at the same time, there are plenty of other ways to make some cash.

Today I wanted to introduce three of the easiest ways you can earn money from home that require minimum investment time wise and MAXIMUM rewards and DON’T involve you even leaving the house! 


do surveys at home

Respondent.io offer surveys and online 1-on-1 focus groups with a fantastic rate of pay. I’ve signed up to do simple webcam chats on a range of topics for an hour which pays $60 (Around £47) so if surveys are your thing then this is well worth jumping on! I’ve done a handful of their tasks and they have ranged from everything such as ‘Talk to us about how you use your web browser’ through to $60 for ‘talk to us about how you use your washing machine!’ So if you fancy earning a great rate of pay just for giving your opinion on things then get applying!

Maru Voice UK

ideas for earning money online

Maru Voice UK is the latest way for Britons to make money online. When you join as a new member, you will earn up to £3 per survey on today’s trending topics such as ‘Do you trust Theresa May to negotiate the best Brexit deal?’ or ‘Are you an online or in-person Christmas shopper?’ Maru Voice UK is operated by a trustworthy company (Maru/Blue) and has successfully been running a similar community in both the United States and Canada for many years, so you can be sure everything is on the up and up.

Print on Demand Products

You can start a print on demand store online without investing too much money. Thanks to the dropshipping business model, the fulfillment is taken care of by the supplier. Your goal is to come up with designs and drive traffic to the store.

Even if you do not have the talent to create designs for the merchandise yourself, you can hire a professional designer and create a partnership instead of doing all the tasks yourself. Sharing the workload would mean that you do not have to worry about the creative side of the project and can focus more on marketing.

How much you can make with POD merchandise depends on the amount of work and effort you put in. Even if you start slow, the opportunities to scale the business are pretty big, so keep that in mind as well.

As for what type of products you want to promote, it depends on your preference. Most start with t-shirts and hoodies, but you can also consider caps, mugs, stickers, and other available merchandise.

Education First

be an online tutor

So this one is a BIGGIE and a fantastic earner for people who have some spare time at home, perhaps while the kids are at school since pay sits around £9.35 per hour – £11.48!

They always say that anyone can teach anything and it’s just a case of finding a way for the student to relate to the material, so here’s how to make money with Education First:

  • Deliver 25-minute high-quality and engaging one-on-one online classes to kids ages 6 to 10
  • Communicate your availability for lesson hours with the easy-to-use scheduling system
  • Have access to prepared lesson materials and also find your own voice and style for teaching your students
  • Give feedback to your students throughout the class and to their parents in post-lesson reporting

Candidates must have the availability to teach during the following proposed time frame:

  • Availability during the lesson times for Chinese time zones. Peak hours are weekday mornings between 10am and 12:30pm GMT.
  • However, there are also weekend mornings available too – 9am to 1pm GMT.
  • The ability to commit to at least four to eight consecutive weeks – same time slot each week.
  • Payment & benefits: offers start at £9.35 per hour with opportunities to earn up to £11.48 per hour plus bonuses and holiday pay.

So with the above three online earning opportunities you should be off to a great start and before you know it will be smugly sat at your laptop with a hot drink in hand just like the woman at the top of this blog post!

As always if you want access to even more higher paying online earning opportunities for FREE then please come over to The Money Shed and join in with the community. We have folk on there who regularly make £1000+ a month from home using their time wisely and only doing well paid opportunities so the money is there for you to take it if you want it, you just need to have it all presented to you in the way only The Money Shed does!!

    I love filling in surveys! I’m signed up to a couple sites, but hadn’t heard of Maru yet.

    Wow, I never knew you could get paid so much for surveys! I like the sound of education first too, that’s something I’m going to look into xx

      Give it a go Wendy. Education First are a great company to work for in the ‘work form home’ sector and the benefits are excellent!

    I had no idea you could make that much money from surveys! That’s pretty good, considering you don’t have to leave the house and can do them pretty much from anywhere
