Wanting to save money and pay off debt is meritorious. The only problem is you can only save but so much money. You still have to eat. Personally, I believe the best way to make extra money.
How do you make extra money from home?
Whether you have a full-time job or you’re a stay-at-home mom, looking to make extra money, you have a ton of options!
The big thing most of us have to realize is that we don’t need a job. Making extra money when you have a family (and possibly a career), does not require you to find a second job. Oh, contraire... working online is a pretty effective solution to make extra money online.
In fact, “how to earn extra money online” and “how to make an income online” are now something people Google on a regular basis. There are a TON of articles (but none better than this one… can I say that?!) to share ideas to earn income at home for moms.
So when it comes to saving money, there’s no better place to go than to your laptop. And while your laptop won’t help you save more money, it can definitely help you make more money to save.
Today, I thought it’d be helpful for me to share my 7 favorite methods to make extra money online. You can use these methods at home on your couch or from the comfort of your bed (while in some cases) watching a favorite show or in my case, while traveling the world with my family.
Here are 7 ways to make more money as a digital nomad.
1. Offer a service.
This is the fastest (and easiest) way to increase your income. You can provide virtual assistant services, bookkeeping, writing, design, project management, website development, and coaching services.
2. Sell a product.
A bit more difficult to launch, it’s also a wonderful way to make extra money. Whether you make something crafty and sell it on Etsy or you create a cool workbook for your target audience to teach them how to do something you know they want to do. A product can help you make more money and help you build a passive income stream.
3. Start a blog.
If you’re not in a rush and you’re willing to play the long-game, starting a blog is a proven way to make more money. In fact, many bloggers make full-time income. Elite Blog Academy is a great program to help you jump-start your blog game and learn how to monetize like a boss! This course is only available for 5 short days each year, so jump on the waitlist to get all of the free resources and to get an email when enrollment opens again.

6. Sell things you no longer need.
I don’t know how many of you are trying to be more minimalist, but if you know my story, we travel a lot. So we’re always getting rid of stuff we don’t need. Then it hit me. Why not sell it? Our junk could be really useful to someone else and it’s way more sustainable than just throwing it away. You’ll be surprised what people will buy. And skip the yard sale, sell it on eBay. It’s way easier.
7. Become an affiliate marketer.
What is affiliate marketing? If you’re asking that question, let me fill you in. Affiliate marketing is when you agree to sell someone else’s product online for a commission. Depending on the terms of the agreement, you can sell on your personal social media account with or without a blog/website. It’s easy to do and you’ll be surprised how much money you can make by posting a few messages on Facebook, Tweeting, or Pinning a sale or a great deal on Pinterest. The best course on affiliate marketing is Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing (<—affiliate link).
Some of these ideas can help you make so much money, you could do it as a full-time income. But in any case, these ideas will definitely help you make more money, and having a little extra cash makes saving SO much easier.
Make more; save more. That’s my motto. How do you save money?
