National Consumer Panel, formerly called Nielsen Home Scan Panel: I haven’t been able to get accepted back into this one again {I quit for awhile after I had the baby, and didn’t realize how hard it would be to get back in!}, but you redeem points for some seriously amazing stuff, including PayPal. They send you a scanner, and you scan barcodes on everything you buy in your life – grocery store, the mall, online, whatever! And those get you more points too – and it’s fun. Top rewards are even things like new appliances! And every quarter one member wins $10,000!! You can also join a related one too, Nielsen Digital Voice, where they give out a $10,000 prize each month.

This is another hobby that can easily become a vocation. While it’s true that we’re storing more and more memories in the cloud, lots of people prefer a book to a screen when looking back on their lives. Scrapbooking isn’t actually as easy as it sounds, which is why people who are good at it can make money doing it.

There’s more to being a coach or personal trainer than just being fit and loving to exercise. Finding a specialization is important, and licenses might be required for certain types of coaching roles. For instance, a friend in Boston obtained US and European soccer-coaching licenses before opening a successful one-on-one soccer-instruction business.

Great ideas. I currently work from home and love it. It beats driving 2 hours in traffic any day. I constantly have people asking me about jobs from home, so I’m going to have to pass this list along.

The video course is actually a full blown system. We’ll be teaching you several ways to drive free traffic, and then you can pick and choose which ones you want to use. At the end of the course, We’ll even show you how to pick which ones to use and how to know what to do each day to keep a flood of traffic coming.

Another legitimate work-at-home job is the “virtual assistant” (VA)—the telecommuting version of a secretary or administrative assistant. The job a virtual assistant, like that of the VA’s office-based counterpart, is “making the boss look good” by taking care of details. On any given day, a virtual assistant’s duties might include proofreading, data entry, building a PowerPoint presentation, scheduling appointments, and sending out thank-you notes.

As you might imagine, publicists need to network heavily, both in reaching out to potential clients and in getting to know members of the media. You’ll need a Website, a good pricing structure and a thick skin—reporters can be famously surly—but publicity is a generally low-overhead business that can produce quick and impressive returns.

A home business can be anything that reflects the owner’s interests or talents. Some popular options today include: working from home as a personal trainer or yoga instructor; tutoring or consulting; medical or legal transcription; web design, or computer repair. A wedding or party planning service; an online home-based business; or a cleaning, childcare, lawn or pet service business can also be good choices. The best part is, when you buy a home-based business it often includes inventory and a solid customer list.

The most exact way to figure this proportion is to measure the square footage devoted to your home office and find what percentage it is of the total area of your home. If the office measures 150 square feet, for example, and the total area of the house is 1,200 square feet, your business percentage would be 12.5% (150 ÷ 1,200).

Is your background in marketing?

You can find these positions by searching specific affiliate networks’ career pages, or you can find a bunch of marketing positions on FlexJobs.

The real estate market is on the rebound (for today) and people are buying and selling properties in many locations across the U.S. That means a lot of opportunities for professionals who know how to navigate the legal, financial, and commercial aspect of real estate to build up a stable of clients as a side business idea. If you consider yourself an expert in the subject, it won’t be a walk in the park (hehe), but you can earn significant additional side income as a home-based consultant.

4. Sales Tax Permit – If you intend to sell taxable goods or services (online or offline), you may be required to collect state and local sales taxes from your customers. If you sell your products in a state that charges a sales tax or levies a gross receipts or excise tax on businesses, you may have to apply for a tax permit or otherwise register with your state revenue agency. This blog also explains more about the process of getting a permit and collecting sales tax: Sales Tax 101 for Small Business Owners and Online Retailers.

Purchasing an existing independent business also requires careful investigation.  It is important to find out why the business is for sale – the company may have recently lost a large contract, have a huge tax liability, or otherwise be in decline due to competition or other factors.

If you’ve got the attitude (and look), there should be a product or service out there on the hunt for the right model to promote their brand as a side business idea. You can sign up with a large agency, find a freelance agent, or look for your own modeling gigs as an independent talent. Since modeling is a complex field, get all the advice you need before jumping right in and find a mentor who can guide you through some of the early challenges it’ll take to establish your brand. Depending on your preference, you can specialize in a single media format such as video or still images, to build a compelling portfolio and grow this into a business idea that has the potential to scale.

What meaningless junk content Captain Obvious! What did you do, walk down the main street of any small town and make a list of the businesses along the way and then write a cookie cutter useless paragraph about each one?

Need a gig for a few months? Try something seasonal, like being a lifeguard, doing snow removal or working at a retailer during the holidays. Employers typically staff up a month or two ahead of their busy season, so plan ahead to get on their payroll. Check storefront windows, Craigslist and local classifieds for seasonal opportunities.

Businesses always need graphic designers to help them convey information visually, through logos, advertisements, posters, websites, and the like. While it is possible to be an entirely self-taught graphic designer, most have either a certification or a degree. Other than the cost of design software, this business has very little overhead and can be done anywhere with a dedicated computer. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, graphic designers have a median salary of $45,000.*

It’s not the sort of side business idea that’s covered in glory, but someone needs to make sure all the numbers add up at the end of the year. Every business and most individuals need someone with the domain expertise to help prepare tax returns, especially time or resource-strapped small business owners. The Income Tax School provides an array of training programs that’ll certify you with tax prep in as little as 10 weeks, and once tax season rolls around you’ll be able to charge an average of $229 per return as a freelance tax preparer with this side business idea, reports CNBC.

Thanks so much for your ideas xD I find this kind of coincidental but I am actually a member of One Source Talent and hoping to get an acting or modeling carrier! I am also doing a bit of photography and writing some ideas for books I might like writing. I do however make websites, but they aren’t for a profit. I am quite young and not exactly sure how to make online profit…

Make more money selling photo subjects that have fewer search results but you feel would have some demand. It might be a good idea to test them out in print first yourself (get free photo prints here).

Double check yourself, before you double wreck yourself. Make sure everything you send to a company, whether a résumé, an email or a portfolio, is good to go. Double check your grammar and wording, and for God’s sake use spell check! This is especially important when it comes to the company’s name. Don’t spell their name wrong and be sure to type it how they type it (e.g. Problogger, not Pro Blogger).
