With today’s ideal lifestyle being more one of freedom and the ability to enjoy life to the full, rather than having loads of money but no time to enjoy it, we are all looking for ways to make an income that doesn’t take too much time.
In a similar vein, many people like the idea of making an income from their kitchen table and setting up a home based business; whether this is inventing a new product or service to pitch on a show like Shark Tank or something a lot more simple like selling items on eBay or Amazon, there are plenty of ways to make money today, from home, that don’t take up too much time.
Interestingly, it can often be tempting to get caught up in the latest fad or craze, such as investing in cryptocurrency with a tool such as Binance, yet the cornerstone of most successful entrepreneurs’ advice is to focus your business on something that is a passion of yours, as this way, rather than feel like laborious work that is akin to everyone else’s “daily grind”, the idea of going into work lights you up and fills you with joy because you get to do what you love.
Whether you’re looking to make it big or small the most important advice is that of getting started and to offer some quirky inspiration, here are a number of ways to make money from your kitchen table that don’t require much time, effort or skill but can reap decent rewards.
1. MATCH BETTING
In many ways, one of the quickest ways to make money online is by taking advantage of the promotional free bets offered by betting sites through something known as match betting. In essence, this (completely legal) practice eliminates the risk of losing money, as conventional gambling does, as you are betting for and against a particular outcome – meaning as one bet loses the other one will win.
This may sound strange, but what you’re actually ‘earning’ from this practice is the free bets you collect along the way, as an example, if a site is offering $200 for new sign-ups this provides a way to keep the sign up promotion by betting for and against a particular outcome; meaning, win or lose, you retain the majority of the free bet.
2. ONLINE SURVEYS
Many people today, are filling out online surveys in their spare time, as an example whilst watching TV – as this is not concentration intensive and market research companies are constantly looking to recruiting new people to answer their surveys and test out new products. This isn’t going to score a huge amount of revenue, but for a few minutes of filling out a form and asking a few easy questions, you can make around $5 (or a similar value in rewards or vouchers).
3. SET UP A BLOG
You don’t have to be an extraordinary writer to set up and monetise a blog; you just need a subject that is of interest to enough people to have decent traffic and of enough substance to get people to subscribe to your mailing list, and a blog can be a very profitable way to make money from your kitchen table; particularly when combined with affiliate marketing.
