How To Make Money From Safety of your Home in 2020

Imagine working in an environment where you are under no obligation to answer your higher authorities after every fixed interval, having no fear at all for being caught for behaving improperly (like sleeping or sitting in an extremely casual position), and can work at any spot you like without answering others as to why you changed your usual sitting spot.

Sounds too good to be, right? Well, it is indeed too good to be true for the majority of offices and organizations.

But, what if we told you it could still be very well possible and you can have that convivial environment even when you are working. And, it is all possible when you work from home.

Work from home is now something that almost everyone is aware of, given the current pandemic situation. With offices being closed worldwide, to help prevent the virus spread, almost all of the world’s working population is working from home.

Many employers are liking this new set up so much that now they are thinking to shift to it permanently, even after the situation restores.

As much as this seemingly new way of working is getting fame now, it has been there well before the advent of telecommunication. It was there in the form of home trading shops in medieval times, hunter-gathering in earliest times, and farming that was and still remains a way of sustenance for many.

In short, the concept might not be something new but the ways of applying it have surely seen drastic changes over time, and solely depends on the ongoing trends of the generation.

In 2020, there are hundreds of ways of working from home but one has to know these ways in detail to know how to make money from home. This is why we have gathered all the information about some of the ways and will be spilling beans on it in this article.

Online Surveys

Let’s start with the basic form of making money from home. If you are a school or college student and looking for some extra pocket money just to get by, then online surveys are the best way to do it.

There are companies that pay their consumers in exchange for sharing opinions regarding their services. There are also dedicated websites made for the purpose of getting responses to different surveys that are published there and pay the respondents.

The money made out of filling out surveys might not be much, but you do get something without working or spending any energy. You can get started by signing up on such websites.

Freelance gig

If you are looking to make a significant amount of money from the comfort of your home, you will be surprised to know that there are many freelance gigs out there.

It does not matter if you are a writer, a proofreader, a graphic designer, an artist, or a web developer, there are all sorts of gigs for almost everyone.

All you have to do is search for freelance websites, and then start fetching clients.

It might not be easy to attract clients when you are starting from scratch, but almost everyone who starts there does get something to work on eventually.

And once you start getting clients and your profile improves, there is no stopping then.

The best thing about freelance gigs is that this work just never stops, the influx of the work might lag a bit sometimes, but you will always have something, either big or small. Another greatest aspect about it is it pays good and you can actually depend solely on it for your living.


This has to be one of the top trends in 2020 as many people are now making their own blogs. In fact, it is so common that almost all of us have someone in our social circle who is a blogger.

The core concept of blogging is sharing your views and content on your favorite topic/area or something that you are expert at.

If you are an avid reader, you can blog about your favorite books or articles you read.

If you are a writer and think you have become an expert at it, you can blog about different ways and tips for writing.

If you are a photographer, you can blog about photographing and can post your own portfolio.

If you have a bit of everything in you, you can make an eclectic blog and post everything you like or are good at.

Basically, just blog about what you are good at and something that will attract others either for entertainment or useful purposes.


This way of making money is more common than any other way because it has two great aspects; it pays well and is highly purposeful.

You can either start tutoring at your home or you can join any online platform. You can tutor students of your level or your juniors, either school or college students. You can also teach more than one student at a time or can dedicate your time to just one. Basically, the scope of tutoring is wide and only you are the master of managing things based on your likes and convenience.

Plus, the added perk of tutoring is that you get a sense of achievement when you are engaged in something that is highly esteemed.


While this may sound like something coming straight out of fantasy but you can actually get a paid remote job. There are many areas in which one can get high paying remote jobs, such as content writing, psychiatry/psychology, animation, customer service representation, data entry, so on and so forth.

Remote jobs, while in nature are similar to freelance gigs, but they differ in being salaried. In freelance, one does not get a salary, they get payment of the project.

There are so many ways and so many things that you can do from the comfort of your home and get paid, you just have to have a keen eye for the opportunity to grab.
