After finding success as a proofreader, Caitlin Pyle started to teach others how to do the same. She launched her course, Proofread Anywhere, that covers the tools and skills you need to be an effective proofreader including, how to get started and where to find clients. To see if proofreading is a good fit for you, check out her free online workshop.
Some of these won’t, I agree! And when they won’t I explicitly say so 😉 Things like surveys won’t make you $100 a day, but focus groups will (I made $150 myself in less than 30 minutes). But for most of these, you need to put the work in. I find it odd when people look for articles to find ways to make money and then hope for a magic wand 🙂 No matter what you decide to do, you will still need to work. I make well over $100 a day now mostly using things from this list, but I work for the money most days!
If you’ve developed valuable skill sets or picked up certifications within your industry over the years, offering your consulting services to local business owners can be a lucrative way to make money online. Whether you’re an expert marketer, business strategist, or manufacturing aficionado, there’s likely a local business owner who’s willing to pay you to help them solve an issue with their company. Start with my guide to launching a freelance (consulting) business and then use my breakdown of crafting an effective cold email to convince local small business owners to hire you. You can even get hired as a consultant by putting your work online and publishing helpful content (take my roundup of honest Bluehost reviews as an example) and prospective clients will want to hire you for more personalized help if they like what they see.
