Easy Ways to Make Money From Home

04 Mar 2016 
A job is never really appreciated, unless and until it gives you its worth. And if you are just idle at home and thinking on what to do, then you have more reasons to be happy as there are innumerable ways to keep oneself busy and at the same time, earn money. And when it comes to teenagers and kids, it is the dream of every parent to see their kids understand their responsibilities at a tender age and it doesn't get better than this, when you and your kids both have some easy ways to make money from home.

10 Simple Ways to Earn from Home

Money making is a talent in itself and devising new ideas for it requires creativity. Besides, before opting for a job which you would like to do from home, make sure it is something close to your heart. Passion driven hobbies make excellent jobs and they make working absolute fun. Here are some of the good money making tips, applicable across all the age groups.


Freelance content writing is one of the best ways to make money from home. Such writing jobs come as contracts, where the person may be hired on a project basis to write the content as desired. This is one of the best jobs for people who have a flare for writing on myriad topics. But before you earn your coveted pocket money, make sure that you are thorough with the copyright laws and the employee agreement annexures of the project you have opted to work for. In certain cases, some rights may also be offered to you for selling the piece of information, which happens to be your indigenous write up.

Do Research

Many websites today are in dearth of people who can research well, because researching requires a lot of patience and diligence to assimilate information on a particular topic. Of course, this is a good start for people who are extremely net savvy and enjoy Internet surfing a lot. For this, however, one must be knowledgeable in web programming and HTML tags. Also, an Internet researcher must be well versed about Internet terminology and other aspects like search engine optimization. To start from home, all you need is your own website with your own DBA. Once done with the setup, there are a lot of free homepage services that will provide other design tools, web space, and email as needed. Start your job by marking the presence of the site on the Internet.

Merchandise Shopping

This is a new concept in itself. If you have gone through many online retail review stores telling you what to buy and what not to, it is because it hires people as merchandise or mystery shoppers to evaluate a store's performance. The merchandising is inclusive of retail and grocery stores as well, where you may be required to follow the planogram to do the assessment for the firm. A planogram is nothing but a descriptive version of the products, on how they must be installed, stacked, restocked, and maintained. The same kind of a procedure can be followed for restaurants, where parameters like customer service, food service, and management can be taken into consideration for the assessment. The best aspect of this job is that, one can choose it at convenience, including the place. The same concept can be used for e-shopping as well.

Try Hands at Craft

If your kid has a good hand at craft work like origami, then nothing like it! Making greeting cards with the most innovative designs, or Christmas lanterns with beautiful patterns, or making exquisite paper bag puppets can fetch your child a bounty. Making designs for Halloween costumes or whitewashing the neighbor's fence can add on to your piggy bank.


Blogging is a place where the passion to write can be combined with the urge to earn. It is the best way of doing business at home. With minimal start up costs, one can gain a loyal and an impressive readership that can add on to your daily income. Depending on the network traffic, its ranking, and the way it is advertised, it sure is a tangible source of income for you. This is a good option for the teen crowd who are very much interested in Internet advertising of their blogs.

Culinary Skill at its Best

Trying out new recipes and advertising them, is not a new concept but is not easy either. If one knows the right way of advertising his or her culinary skills, one can really make a fortune. Try out some simple recipes and demonstrate it in front of a crowd, and it is bound to get your talents rolling back in the form of money.

Stocks, Bonds, and Affiliate Marketing

Stocks and funds is another good option to consider. But before one enters into this domain, he or she has to do a thorough study on the working of the stock market. Another good choice is Internet affiliate marketing. If you are good on this subject, minting money on eBay and other similar online shopping stores will be fun.


All children at some point in their life nurture a passion for dancing, and a few are born with the talent which shows out in the crowd. Teens who are passionate about dancing can start off with a dance class. The resources needed are bare minimal. All one needs is to rent a large room depending on the number of students, and a music system.


Teaching happens to be the noblest of all the professions. One of the best means to earn from home, it is also a liberating experience for those, who have a passion to teach. It also happens to be one of the best ways for teens.

Go Designer

If you have an uncanny art at designing clothes, then you might as well like to give a try at starting a clothes boutique at home. This may also give you further ideas for starting a clothing line in future.

The Future of Online Coupons: Scarily Personalized Offers Based on Your History

16 Feb. 2016 
Last Updated Dec 23, 2010 4:25 PM EST

Editor's Note: to see our infographic slideshow on Retail Shopping in 2015, click here.

As big retailers fight over ways to integrate smartphone apps into their brick-and-mortar stores, smaller businesses are using technology to do battle over price by offering coupons and promotional deals via discount purveyors like Groupon and LivingSocial. But those discount services could find their business models up-ended if a new crop of search engines have their way.

Why coupons still suck

So-called "group buying" sites work because they can deliver a very valuable group of customers: a group that has already agreed to buy your product at a certain price. It's a relatively efficient way of making a "smarter" coupon. But there's one major problem: the coupons are publicized very inefficiently. The only people who see offers for Groupon are people who go to the site. Relative to the entire population of American consumers, this isn't a lot of people.

That's the reason that you don't see many big retailers using these coupon services: their TV ads and newpaper leaflets get much better penetration than the even the sweetest Groupon deal.

But if discount purveyors had some way of ensuring a massive, interested audience, then all that might change.

Search engines could be the disruptors

Several "inventory search engines" might change things dramatically. is a search engine that has partnerships with Best Buy (BBY), Home Depot (HD) and Macy's (M), all of which allow consumers to search what's in stock at nearby stores so they can go buy it in person.

If gets big, this would mean it has access to a very valuable demographic. According to Milo's CEO, Jack Abraham, they would have access to consumers who are actively comparing items, but may still be influenced one way or another by an added discount.

"Eventually where we're trying to go is personalized coupons," Abraham says. Using information you provide from the social graph, he says, "we could look at your past purchase history, the retailers you like, and your location in order to let an OEM 'bid' on you with a coupon." He compares the future system to Google's (GOOG) AdWords business, which decides which ads to serve based on small automatic "bids" from advertisers.

Say you're comparing two brands of TV on Milo or a similar service. The two you're considering are Sony and LG. Somewhere in your social graph (perhaps or your Chase (JPM) credit card) there's evidence that you've bought a lot of Sony products in the last few years, and that you're in New York City. In the future, Milo's system would notify the manufacturers that a buyer is in contention, and the manufacturers could "bid" on you (using your past buying data as criteria) by delivering customized coupons. Sony offers you 10% off on the spot, but LG offers you 20%. You buy the LG. It's market-share growth by attrition.

"One-size-fits-all coupons just don't work that well," says Abraham. "If you segment the customer base, you have some very valuable customers that you can pinpoint." Home Depot, for example, might want to target contractors (who provide a majority of their business) to poach them from Lowe's (LOW). "In retail, new customer acquisition is the name of the game," Abraham says, "and large retailers have told us they're interested in this."

Yes, Google's there, too

Whisper "search" and Google appears -- this instance is no different. Google has begun making local store inventory available in its product searches, although its inventory system is not real-time, as's is, which won't make it much good for hunting-down high-demand products on Dec. 24. Still, Google's system may improve, and it won't be the only player. Foursquare (and other location-based services) are another way that retailers could blast out hyper-targeted deals to huge swaths of the population.

CM Punk sweepstakes winner Mickey Gall talks about injury delay and UFC future

16 Feb. 2016 

Esther Lin,

Right now there's only name to associate with UFC newcomer Mickey Gall and that's WWE-crossover star CM Punk.

After all, the 2-0 mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter is only really famous for being the one hand-picked to welcome the wrestler to UFC.But as Gall tells it to reporter Hunter Homistek, that's soon hacking game going to change.

"I don't think anything's guaranteed, but I do have a longer contract than just to fight CM Punk. My thing is, right now I'm that CM Punk guy.' I'm that guy that's fighting CM Punk. I will not be remembered as that CM Punk guy.' By this time next year, I don't think I'll be known as that. I called out CM Punk because I wanted to be a UFC fighter. I wanted to be in the UFC. I wanted to excel there. People will forget that I fought CM Punk."

The two fighters were set to hook 'em up around UFC 199 (which hasn't yet been announced) but Gall, 24, learned his opponent will have to yet again delay his MMA debut to undergo "minor" back surgery.It's certainly got to disappoint Gall to play the waiting game.

But at the end of the day he says the delay is no big deal and might actually work out for the better.

"I think it's just a four-week gap that we're losing, and I think that could coincide perfectly with UFC 200. That's what I'm hoping."

Gall made animpressive debut at UFC Fight Night 82 last week by dispatching his opponent inside of 45 seconds, something he thinks may be cause for concern among certain famous pro wrestlers.

"I don't want to say I scared him. I think he should be scared. I'm sure when he saw what I did his stomach probably dropped a little bit. He got that feeling of, Alright, this is going to happen. It's real now.' From what he was saying, he was excited and stuff. I remember seeing interviews of him pumping his fist and being happy about it. He was probably putting it on a little bit, but I do believe he wants to fight and he's going to fight me."

Punk, who real name is Phil Brooks, signed with UFC in December of 2014. The 37-year-old is the second high profile WWE star to join the promotion since Brock Lesnar in 2008.

Modern markets are flooded with different brands and models of the same products which are required by the consumers. Free samples give a consumer opportunity to try new products before buying them.

Star of 'Million Dollar Listing' Says Anyone Can Make Money in Real Estate

12 Feb. 2016 
Its no secret that real estate is and always has been one of the best investment opportunities, no matter the market condition. In fact, roughly 77 percent of entrepreneurs with at least one million in assets own real estate, according to a study Morgan Stanley did last year.

But, is real estate investing a strategy that only the top 1 percent can take advantage of?

According to real estate agent and investor Josh Altman, the star of the hit TV show Million Dollar Listing, the answer is a resounding no. He says: There is a new generation of real estate investors that have emerged in the last five years making a killing in real estate. The crazy thing is, a lot of them started with little to no money in their bank accounts and no prior experience. Systems and technology have leveled the playing field. Anyone can be a successful real estate investor if they have a solid plan and put in the work.

What advice does Josh have for those looking to break into the real estate investing world? What would he tell the active investor who wants an income increase? Here are his top-five tips for someone looking to make money as a real estate investor.

1. Start out in real estate part-time.

Its not necessary to quit your day job to be a successful investor. Its easy to get started in your spare time and ramp up as your income increases and you get more comfortable. Or if you prefer, continue to keep it part-time. Despite working 60+ hour weeks as a realtor while filming Million Dollar Listing, I still managed to flip a house in the Hollywood Hills for $1.2 million in profit on the side. The best part? I did it without touching a hammer or funding the renovations myself.

2. Educate yourself on different strategies.

When most people think of real estate investing, they think of either buying properties to fix them up and resell them, or they think of buying and holding property to rent out as a landlord. The truth is that there is an entire world of creative real estate investment strategies out there. My favorites are ones that dont involve doing renovations or hunting down rent payments. The key is to know the right strategy to use at the right time. For new or beginner investors, I recommend real estate wholesaling, or as I like to call them, quick flips. The reason? There is virtually zero risk for you. You don't have to use any of your own money and you dont need a real estate license. Although the profits on quick flips rarely exceed $40,000 per deal, you can work on many at one time. And they're fast. Many take less than 30 days to close.

3. Become a master of lead generation.

You can have all the real estate knowledge in the world, but if you dont know how to find deals before everyone else, youre not making money. Its rare that youll hit it big on a property that has been on the market for over a week. Its also unlikely that youll find great deals on properties that just hit the market today. Hands down, the biggest profits are in finding hidden, off-market properties. Off-market properties are not on Zillow or the MLS. They are properties the homeowner doesnt want, or often cannot sell through traditional channels. Some of the most common scenarios I see are divorce and financial hardship. Finding a distressed seller who needs immediate cash often means they will sell at less than market value, which provides you with biggest profit potential.

4. Follow a proven system and keep it simple.

Theres no need to reinvent the wheel or complicate things. When I started in the real estate world I tried to do everything myself and fell flat on my face. It wasnt until I buckled down and got a mentor that everything became much simpler. I didnt have to second guess what I was doing. I just followed a step-by-step process that I refined over time order to find, analyze, and maximize my profit. I love that I can now teach others to achieve success in real estate, but with a lot less trial-and-error than I had to endure.

5. There is no substitute for taking action.

Part of the territory that comes with having a hit TV show is that everyone who meets me asks how I made it big in real estate. Most of these people think I was an overnight success or assume I have a magic easy button solution. Sorry to let you down. Its not because I was smarter or more charming than my competition. Its because I took action. I hustled. I am constantly looking for ways to grow game hacker ios my network of potential buyers and potential sellers. They might not want to buy or sell a house today, but they might next year. And they definitely will at some point. You need to be the first person they think of when they're ready to buy or sell. Not the second -- the first.

Never pass up an opportunity to tell people what you do. Never pass up the opportunity to eat lunch with an real estate investor or professional more successful than you. The harder you work, the luckier you'll get. It is all about action, and there is no better time to get started than right now.
