Here are Thirty Ways to Earn Money from Home by Offering a Service to Others! You will, of course, have to work out the details. But after a tiny bit of research, you can easily start earning extra cash using one of these ideas:
#1: Phone Answering Service & Wake-Up Call Service – Some folks cannot rely on an alarm clock and will pay you a monthly fee to call and wake them up on certain days. Others might pay you to take messages for them, when they forward their calls to your phone.
#2: Baby-Sitting Service – You might go to their home, or they might drop their kids at your home. You might be able to watch several kids from different families at once.
#3: Tutor – If there is a subject that you’re good at, and if someone in the area needs a good tutor, then you can become a tutor.
#4: Handy Man or Handy Woman Service – If you’re good at using tools, and you have some tools, then people can hire you to do minor repairs.
#5: Cleaning Service – There are loads of people who do not want to clean their own homes and will happily pay someone to do it. Why not let them pay YOU?
#6: Watering Plants & Taking in the Mail – When people might be going out of town, they might pay you to water their plants, bring in their mail, and occasionally turn different lights on and off to give the impression that someone is still at home.
#7: Window Washing Service – There are small shopping centers where each individual store or office is responsible for cleaning their own front windows, but some of these businesses are happy to pay someone else to do the cleaning once or twice a week. It’s a great one-person business.
#8: Typing Service – Even though everyone seems to use a computer and typewriters are almost non-existent, people might be willing to pay you to do the typing for them.
#9: Hauling & Moving Service – If you have a truck or a van, there are people who might pay you to take things to the dump, move some furniture from one spot to another spot across town, and so forth.
#10: Grocery Shopping – Some people are too busy to do their own shopping, and will pay you to go to the grocery store for them!
#11: Keeping Someone Company – Of course some elderly people might need a qualified health care professional, but there are some people who simply need a “sitter” to stay with them a few hours here and there.
#12: Computer Lessons – Even without being a candidate to work at Best Buy’s Geek Squad, you might have neighbors who know absolutely nothing about computers, and they will pay you to teach them simple computer skills which you take for granted.
#13: Music Lessons – If you play a musical instrument and you’re really good at it, you might be able to give music lessons to someone who wants to learn to play.
#14: Magician, Juggler, Clown for Birthday Parties – If you are into magic, juggling, or clowning, then you might be able to do birthday parties for kids, or for any local events.
#15: Foreign Language Lessons – If you speak more than one language fluently, then you just might be able to teach a language to people who want to learn.
#16: Catalog Gift Selling – People who are too busy to go to stores, and who do not want to shop online, just might enjoy shopping in gift catalogs that YOU provide them with. They pay you the retail prices shown, and then you buy the things at a discount to fill their orders. You don’t have to “sell” because you just loan out the catalogs, which do the selling for you!
#17: Lyft or Uber Driver – There are people everywhere who are making extra money driving people around. If you have a car, a smartphone, and the courage/confidence, then you can probably rake in some money.
#18: Sewing & Clothing Alterations – If you have sewing skills, then perhaps people will pay you to sew buttons back onto shirts and make other minor clothing repairs or alterations. Most people cannot do this themselves.
#19: Party Planner – People will pay you to plan birthday parties and other parties for them. This is a fun and profitable business, and the sky is the limit.
#20: Watering Plants for People on Vacation – There are people who have loads of nice flowers and potted plants in their homes, and when they go on vacation, they need someone to water and care for the plants for them.
#21: Snow Shoveling & Leaf Raking – There are people who have driveways that they cannot shovel themselves when it snows, and yards that have falling leaves that they cannot rake themselves.
#22: Garage Sales in Your Front Yard – You might be able to do this every Saturday, and let all the neighbors know that you will be happy to sell items they want to get rid of, for a fee or commission of course. Many of them can’t be bothered having a garage or yard sale.
#23: Mowing Lawns for Neighbors – Not everyone wants to hire a professional landscape company, and some people have small yards, but do not want to do it themselves.
#24: Writing Resumés for People – Most people cannot write, or don’t know what to write. You can do this for people in your town and/or for people online.
#25: Driving People to Doctor Appointments – Some folks might not drive, or might not want to drive to a doctor for certain procedures.
#26: Driving People to the Airport – Most folks don’t want to pay the exorbitant fees to park at the airport. They will pay you to drive them to the airport.
#27: Running Errands for Neighbors – Some people do not have the time to run errands and they will pay you to do those things for them.
#28: Cooking Meals for Neighbors – Some people cannot cook, or do not have the time. They will pay you to prepare meals for them. Whether you do it daily, or prepare several meals at once, then put them into food storage containers.
#29: Doing Laundry for Neighbors – Some people do not want to do their own laundry or they don’t have the time. They will gladly pay you to do the laundry for them.
