I compiled a list of real ways to make money from home UK; I think you can do it from almost anywhere globally, but I tried it in the UK, and it all works.
What I like about working online, you choose your own time to work. For example, you can travel anywhere and still find time to work on your laptop.
Most ways to make money online below are relatively easy to implement, and you don't need to be a guru in computers either. If you are not sure of something, you can find it online without any problems.
Let us not waste time and explore a few ways to make money online:
Start a Blog
I am sure you have heard this one before, but there is a reason. If you spend some time learning about it, you can make a living from a blog and replace your 9-5 job.
Common questions people ask me:
What am I going to write about?
Ideally, you want to pick a niche and stick to it. You need to make sure you know what you are talking about; if you are not sure or copying other people's content, the road to your success will be hard.
How much time do I need to spend before I see any income? - It depends on how much do willing to invest. The more you invest - the quicker you will see a result. But allow yourself a few months of consistent and regular posting.
The beginning is always challenging, many people expect results after 1-to 2 posts, and if there is no income stream, they give up.
My grammar is not good; how can I do it? - People are looking for unique and valuable content, and it's not about the spellings or commas missing. Do not worry about it. Worry about giving people value.
I use Grammarly to help me, and it's a brilliant tool.
Sell stuff on eBay
eBay is a great platform and still very well used. As of 2021, there are 187 million eBay users worldwide. This is a massive number of people, and there are billions of products listed.
If you have never tried to sell stuff on eBay, you should try it. Start with unwanted things you might have in your attic or garage, and put them up for auction and see. It can be fun.
You can buy stuff from different marketplaces (Facebook is a great option) and resell it on eBay.

Sounds great. Try it yourself. It is free to start.

You can start your e-commerce shop with Shopify if you have physical products to sell.

You can promote Fiverr and get paid commissions for each affiliate to join. It's been on the market for many years now, and it is trendy.
