1. Online Tutor (Medium)

Epidemics can’t stop online learning. Even nowadays schools and colleges are organizing online classes. If your English is very much good then you can easily earn $20 to $30 per hour through online tutoring. Many members reported they are earning around $3,000 or more per month.

Chinese students are the best target as they are learning the English language more in comparison to other countries. Sites like VIPKid and Preply are the best place to start. VIPKid focuses more on teaching English to Chinese students.

Hence language teaching is the most known and famous subject in online tutoring.


2. Do Remote Jobs With Amazon (Low)

Amazon is the best place way to make money online in recession time. For many of you, Amazon is the best place to do shopping but many people are making money with it. And you can do that too.

There are many ways to make money with Amazon but I would like to mention two most famous ways. If you want to check other ways to make money with Amazon check here.

Amazon Mechanical Turk

MTurk is the platform where you can earn money for completing microtasks. Microtasks like completing surveys, answering questions, listing sounds, and many others.

It is not the way to make huge money but yes you can make some money.

Amazon Customer Service

If you are well educated and have basic typing skill then this is for you. This is the virtual job from amazon which you can from your home. Customer Service jobs can be full-time or part-time jobs and yes it is a work-from-home job.

It is also a professional job hence you need to have some qualifications before joining them. There are a number of jobs for Customer Service and each job has its own requirements.

They pay around $15 to $25 per hour and estimate working hours per week is 20 to 30. To join amazon customer service jobs click here and click here to choose virtual locations jobs.


3. Become Transcriber (Low)

Becoming a transcriptionist is not hard but following that path is a bit hard because finding high paying transcription jobs is not easy as it looks.

As a transcriptionist, you have to hear the voice and write it down. There are some medical transcription companies and some are general transcription jobs.

Most of the companies are seeking a transcriptionist who has some previous experience but it doesn’t mean you can’t do this job without experience.

Some famous transcription job sites are;




This is some famous and high paying amongst others hence these sites are recommended. There are some basic requirements like the Internet, Laptop, and Mic.


4. Earning Money While Watching Video (Low)

You can earn online with various methods and one of the methods is watching videos. But this is not recommended because you will not earn much or sufficient money.

But yes it is the best way to make time pass while earning so yes you should try them once.

There are many sites online where you can earn money for watching videos. Don’t hope that you will earn $10 or $20 or more per hour from these websites.



On these sites, you can’t just make money by watching videos but also by completing many other tasks.


5. Paid Surveys (Medium)

Making money from surveys is always fun you can earn from surveys even when you are doing your daily job. This is good for students. We already covered many many survey panel sites where you can make money.

The most famous and high paying survey site is InstaGC and Rewardia which gives a huge bonus for signing up. If you spend lots on similar sites then easily you can make around $500 per month but yes you have to join many different sites at once.


6. Proofreading (Low)

Proofreading is the job that most of the moms are doing from home. This types of jobs are for those people who have good catching eye, the one who finds grammatically errors.

There are many online bloggers, content creators, and portals who are seeking proofreaders. There are many proofreading platforms that are paying $2 to $10 per hour. ProofReadingPalCactusGlobal, and ScriBendi are some of the best places to start earning as a proofreader.


7. Blogging (Hard)

I would like to add blogging in the first place but because of difficulty, I decided not to add the first spot. Even you can stop your company job and do blogging.

Blogging can be long term work for you if you dedicated to it. There are many bloggers who are earning more than $10,000 per month.

You need to have;


Good in SEO

Able to understand users

If you don’t have patience then you can’t do this job because sometimes it takes 6 months or more to start receiving traffic. You can monetize your traffic using Adsense, Affiliate Links, PR, and Sponsor Posts. There are many other ways to monetize your blog.
