    Default Any of you work from home making $$ online??.

    Hey guys,

    I saw an old thread talking about this but as technology constantly changes, so do the opportunities. I was just curious to know if any of you make your living from home doing any of the multitude of ways people make $$$ online.

    I've been selling on 2 different platforms for awhile now but there is so much more I want to do, to learn, etc... there's always scammers but there are also some that are not. Many people make a full time income & more from home or wherever, w/their laptop.

    I'd love to hear your story, what you do, how did you get started etc.... I'm curious to see if anyone does any of the other things I'd like to get into, if you know anything about some of the big names involved in there's areas or if anyone is interested in learning about the platforms I sell on to make a little xtra $$ each month on the side.

    Just hoping to pick this conversation up again as their are tons of ways to make $$$ online, maybe some good discussion will be of some help to others.

    Thanks so much,
    SP

    My wife makes shirts and sells them on Etsy full time. It was quite a long slow process to build up a customer base but now she does fairly well. She started off with a basic cricut machine for printing and a press, she’s since upgraded after she started to profit.

    As far as online work, I just read an article about blockchain engineers being the highest paid internet workers. If you have the know how’s in this field then it could be something to look Into. I just know the basics of bitcoin and how it works, I’d be lost on the blockchain but if I had the time I think it’d be worth the time to self teach myself. I think I read entry level is $100+K a year

    @sillypuppiez (great topic!)
    I tried to get my foot in the door with an online resale business on eBay/Amazon, but everything has become so competitive that straight resale requires high volume sales. I just don’t have the time!

    My brother, however, is a veteran online incomer. He’s done everything from those online surveys to drop shipping. He’s told me that most if not all of the money-making ventures that OTHER PEOPLE try to get you involved in are scams, plain and simple.

    So he started a resale business about 10 years ago on eBay that involves buying large quantities of used “As Is” electronics - mostly older generation iPhones and hard drives, things of that nature, that he can easily troubleshoot, possibly fix and reformat or restore, repackage and ship.

    He took over one of the sheds on our property and set up a shop. Overhead is minimal, and all sales, payment and shipping are taken care of through eBay/PayPal or Amazon. He has a website as well, where people can send in their broken personal electronics for repair.

    Granted, he’s developed a skill for working with small instruments and a soldering iron. The biggest challenge he faces is the rapidly increasing complexity of small electronics.
    At first, I thought he was insane, but in a decade, he’s managed to make enough to hire two neighbors, buy me out of half my share of the farm and pay off the combine (it’s like buying a house).

    My point in this rambling is that there’s no easy way to get rich quick online, but it’s certainly possible to make a living.

  5. I have an Ebay store as well as an Etsy store. I love it and it's alot better than going to work 8 hours a day since I can be home with my kids.

    I sell on ebay too, its best if you make the item yourself or grow it. If its made in china the chinese will compete directly with you. They can make, sell, and ship an item to a customer for less than what it may cost you to mail it. No kidding. I bought a gizmo for 77 cents that reduces house current to 12v dc. It would have cost at least $12 locally. To mail a package in usa costs $3.50 minimum, you can get a discount to $2.66 for up to 3 oz but they are sending it from china, selling for 77 cents all included. How would you like to compete against that?

    Grow plants and sell the seeds or fresh cuttings, or root them and sell the plants. Its not possible to mail plants from china so you are protected. There are other ways but they all involve work, that 4 letter word

    Yes. I think there is and I think it's growing fast.

    I'm about to start a new biz working from home. It's in an industry I know a bit about but nowhere near enough yet. I intend to learn along the way which is pretty much how I've always started a business.
    The biz idea I came to me when I was thinking about a business for a friend who is stuck doing a job he hates. He'd be far better at it than me but since my life has changed I'm going to have a bash at doing it myself.

    As much as I want to say what I'm about to do I don't want to yet as I'm still working on the initial roll out. I've always been self employed and I've noticed one common denominator throughout 20 years and 5 businesses and that is this: Keep start up costs and all overheads as low as possible coz it's easy to bail out if you carry no debt!

    I'm providing a service to businesses that don't have time to do it in house and who don't want to employ a full time new staff member to focus on it. It might not work which is why I'm keeping costs as low as possible. If it doesn't work I've lost £100 and my time. Some would argue that I must cost my time from the outset, I don't draw a wage until the biz can sustain it.

    I need an income which can be operated from anywhere with a wifi connection as I have a baby. I don't want to sell a tangible product as I don't want to incur storage/shipping/return costs etc.

    I've pulled a few favours in to help me with skills that I don't have, mainly website construction and copywriting. I've told them I'll pay them once I'm in profit, I've been upfront about paying them and have purposely used very little of their time. Hopefully :fingescrossed: it'll take off.

    I've seen the ads that say you earn hundreds of dollas from day one whilst sitting at your PC. I don't believe it.

    Good Luck!

    I really appreciate this thread and it came at the right time! Wasn't expecting anything about this topic on PR. I live by the philosophy there are no coincidences.
    A few years back, I sold a couple of random items on eBay. I loved it!

    Now I have at least a hundred random items lol. My job right now is to get them organized. It would probably be a good distraction given all the stuff I have been going through.
    There is a lot of talk and media attention about organizing, decluttering, etc. Althouogh a little bit off topic, how did you guys get your stuff together. Besides obviously the usual cleaning etc, do you have a separate area in your living space for your items and the processing? Just wondering what people do, particualrly with limited space. Thanks!

    Yard sales are a good place to look for used items, art, oddball stuff etc to resell. Any sort of artworks seems to go for good money, be it wood, painting, sculpture, jewelry. I've seen things I would not pick up if they were abandoned by the side of the road and people were paying good money for it, like $50 or more

    Avoid anything mass produced, hand made is in demand. Of course if you spot catalina pottery, depression glass, or an item with a designer label, you can ignore that rule. Keep in mind you will have to ship it so large, heavy, and or delicate items will cost a bundle to send but if its an antique chandelier they want to get rid of since its old, if its in great shape except for being dusty, might be a great find. An old not working floor model radio may not be so good but if the appearance is great someone might buy it. Appearance is a big big factor. Small chips can drastically lower the value, dirt may be cleaned up but how much labor?

    If you are hale and hearty, consider doing lawn and tree work in the spring. They make $50 an hour easy and more if its tree work. All you need is a mower, later perhaps a truck and ladder, saws, etc. Price it at your rate, perhaps 50/hr and add in for gas and travel. Then be amazed when they tell you how cheap your price is

    My aunt collected almost all the toys that come in "Happy Meal" boxes.
    It took about 12 years of going to rummage sales, flea markets, and Ebay buying but she sold her collection for $5000. One of the toys was valued at $800 because it had a mistake imprinted on it. Seems crazy to me that a plastic Happy Meal toy would be that valuable due to a mistake but to each their own. Collectors make quite a bit of money buying and selling. Ebay is a good place to buy cheap and resell for more.

    Its simply amazing what people will pay money for. Old toys are good, especially if new still in the box. Trophies are sometimes made of silver, also medals. Books can be valuable but you really have to know what you are doing. Cook books or diet books usually sell or books signed by the author if he is known. Military insignia, swords, knives, helmets. Old costume jewelry commands a high price if pretty and in excellent shape. Look for genuine stones or lots of rhinestones and unique designs.

    Sometimes the painting is worthless but the frame is valuable.

  15. i do some surveys online. you can pick up a few dollars but not much. if anyone has a teaching degree or even a b.a., you can get some esl teaching or tutoring too. some places will hire people to write closed captions. i was reading that there is also money in writing erotica or just plain porn. for all, your health has to be good enough for sitting at a computer for hours. at least i can do surveys on a tablet.
