Are you looking for additional income by working from home?
Serious supplementary income at home
24 FEBRUARY 2023
Whether you're planning to travel, improve your everyday comfort, build up a deposit or want to buy a new piece of equipment or household appliance, you want to finance a personal project, and to do so you need to build up a serious additional income. There are many ways to earn money simply from home in France. Here's a quick look at some of the possibilities, with Elora.
How do you make ends meet at home?
Are you looking to supplement your income by working from home? There are a thousand and one ways to earn money from home. Here are 14 ideas for earning money from the comfort of your own home.
1. Sell products from home
Jewellery, household cleaning products, clothes, kitchen equipment and accessories, sex toys, candles... The choice is vast! Choose a type of product you like and a brand with a proven track record (both in terms of reliability and longevity) and start your VDI business from the comfort of your own home, at the pace you want.
2. Selling your clothes
Do you have clothes that you don't wear because you don't like them any more or because they no longer fit? If they're in good condition, it's better to sell them before they get damaged. The same applies if you don't use or no longer use certain items you own. If you put them up for sale, they'll make people happy and you'll make a lot of money.
3. Writing web content for local brands or businesses
If you have a fine pen, you should know that many companies are looking for copywriters to contribute to their blogs or simply create the text for their showcase site. Most of the time, however, you'll need to be trained in natural referencing in order to produce better-thought-out texts.
Another idea: create a site where you can integrate affiliate links and write sponsored articles
4. Selling photographs
There are databases that allow you to make your photos available to companies and individuals. However, you need to post quality photos on a regular basis if you want to earn a serious income that lasts over time.
5. Pet-sitting (looking after animals)
Dog-sitting, cat-sitting and pet-sitting in general have developed well over the last decade. Instead of going to the homes of people going away for the weekend or on holiday, you can welcome pets into your home. To offer this service, all you need is a bit of space and the equipment essential for the animals' well-being.
6. Renting out your car
It's a well-known fact that maintaining a car costs money. If you don't use yours very much, leasing it can help you to break even and earn some serious extra income. For easier day-to-day management, especially when it comes to insurance, don't hesitate to sign up to a specialised platform (application or website).
7. Become an influencer on social networks
Social networks such as Instagram, TikTok and YouTube are great ways of earning extra money from home. To get started and feed your account, you need to be able to bring people together and be creative. It requires almost daily work, but the income potential is very attractive.
PS: if you sell from home, you should know that being an influencer can help you get known and develop your business. By combining the two, you can kill two birds with one stone!
8. Become a virtual assistant
Some entrepreneurs and small businesses need outside help to carry out assistant tasks. This allows them to focus on their core business. The main tasks of this type of job include :
■ e-mail management ;
■ customer service;
■ booking train tickets or accommodation;
■ diary management;
■ invoice management.
9. Hire your equipment
These days, almost everything can be hired! From your raclette machine to your DIY equipment, make anything you don't use much, if at all, available to other individuals!
On a different note, you can also rent out :
■ your parking space;
■ your cellar;
■ a particularly well-decorated room in your home for photo shoots.
10. Develop and sell online courses on dedicated platforms
Do you have advanced knowledge in certain areas? Why not share it with people who want to learn in return for payment? This requires a great deal of preparation, but once the learning materials have been produced, all you have to do is wait for the sales... and your euros! While this is a good way of supplementing your income and using the expertise you have acquired in the course of your career or in another job, you will still need to update the material regularly to keep it relevant. You will also sometimes need to be available to provide after-sales service.
11. Giving courses
In the same vein as selling training courses, you can give lessons related to the subjects you master. Sewing, school subjects, DIY... the options are numerous, although once again this requires a bit of work beforehand. Depending on the subject, the lessons can take place at your home or remotely via a video link.
12. Renting out part of your home
Do you have a separate part of your home or a spare bedroom? Renting out this available space can provide you with significant additional income. And with good reason: depending on the region you live in, the supply of accommodation can be slim. So your space could be very much in demand!
However, this solution for making ends meet requires a certain amount of flexibility and hard work. Unless you delegate, you'll have to do the cleaning, hand over the keys or make yourself available if any problems arise during the rental period.
13. Putting up a billboard in your garden
If you have a space available in your garden near a busy road, you can have a large billboard installed. This space can be rented out to various local businesses.
14. Try dropshipping
These days, it's possible to sell items online without having to build up a stock at home. Specialist suppliers take care of all the logistical aspects, while you manage the promotion of your shop. In particular, you'll need to create a website with a CMS and use the communication techniques available today (social networks, online advertising, etc.) to make yourself known.
