If you’re interested in starting a side hustle or looking for the best work at home jobs to start then you’re in the right place.
Now unlike many of the videos on this topic, I will not be covering things like filling out surveys, selling junk on eBay or things I wouldn’t do myself.
I’m going to share 7 of the best work at home jobs you can start that you can make a full-time income from home. In fact a few of these methods I’ve made a six or even seven-figure income from.
With each job, I will break down how much you can make and how you can get started.
Now before we get started I want to cover a few things.
1.) If you want to make a reliable, consistent, and predictable income online you need to be able to add value to someone in the form of selling a product or offering a service that they’re willing to exchange their money for.
So for all of these jobs, you will need to acquire skills first, but the good news is that all of these work at home jobs you can teach yourself the skills just like I did and they don’t require any certifications or schooling.
2.) Most of the videos you will watch are going to teach you methods that are not sustainable for the long term and you will be very limited to the amount of money you can make. Here is something to think about, “If the job is perceived to be easy then you will have tons of competition, if the job is perceived to be hard then you will have very little competition”.
Every single job on my list is a high-income skill that will give you the ability to always make money once you learn them. They’re in high demand and if you ever decide to create your own business you can transfer these skills to your own business.

1.) Video editor
Okay, so the first job on my list to make money from home is a video editor.
Right now video is in huge demand and it’s estimated that in just a few years over 80% of the web will be video.
Many YouTubers, videographers and business owners are looking for video editors to lighten their workload and take over the process of editing their videos.
You can teach yourself video editing by watching Youtube tutorials or taking an online course on a platform like Lynda.com or Udemy.com.
I self-taught myself video editing by watching Youtube tutorials and I was even able to create a short documentary for one of my clients all from just reading and watching tutorials online.
With basic video editing skills, you can make around $15hr and once you get more experience and sharpen your skills you can make upwards of $50hr.
So you could make around $2,000 to $6,000 per month working full time as a video editor and the amount you earn is all based on the skills you can offer your clients.
Now if you’re wondering how do you actually get the clients it’s not that hard if you’re a go-getter.
You can go to sites like upwork.com, freelancer.com, fiverr.com, and my favorite is Facebook communities for entrepreneurs or Youtubers.
I have a friend who built a six-figure income just hanging out in Facebook communities and networking to get clients.
2.) Sales copywriter
Now the next work at home job on my list is a sales copywriter
This is one of the most valuable high-income skills you can learn, especially if you venture into starting your own business.
Copywriting has literally made me millions by learning the skill to sell products online.
If you don’t know what a sales copywriter is or you’ve never heard the term copywriting is simply words that sell.
It can be in written form or the words someone says in a video that leads people to make a purchase.
The words you see in a Facebook ad, words on a website sales page, billboards, TV ads, and the magazines you see when checking out at the grocery store are all examples of copywriting.
This is a timeless skill that will never change because as long as people are buying things at the store or online then copywriters will always be in high demand.
You can learn copywriting by reading books or taking a home study course.
I personally taught myself copywriting the old school way which is studying the best emails, sales letters, and marketing campaigns that are already proven to make millions of dollars.
This is a skill once you learn it you can pretty much write your own paycheck as you level up your skills.
Now with copywriters, they generally don’t get an hourly rate, they charge by the project.
Copywriters rates can vary based on skill and experience. You could make anywhere from $200 to $5,000 per project.
When you really establish yourself with lots of experience you can get projects where you charge $10,000 for writing one sales letter and you get a percentage of all sales made.
If a client can make six-figures or seven-figures from the sales letter you write then $10,000 is nothing in comparison to the ROI they will receive on their investment.
The average copywriter can make around $2,000 to $10,000 per month depending on experience and how many projects they can handle.
To find clients you can use freelance sites like I previously mentioned, but to get the best clients I suggest networking on Facebook groups where many entrepreneurs are looking to outsource this skill.
3.) Paid traffic manager
Okay, so the third job on my list to earn money from home is a paid traffic manager.
Right now there are many business owners wanting to get more customers using online marketing, but they don’t have the knowledge or time to run paid ads for themselves.
This job could mean you’re running Facebook ads, Youtube ads, Instagram ads or even Google Adwords depending on the business.
Now with this job, you will need to learn how to run ads on one of these platforms and study marketing and sales, but once you learn this skill you will always be able to get clients or use this skill for your own business in the future.
You can learn how to run ads for businesses by purchasing an online course.
Even as a beginner you can find business owners willing to let you run ads for their business to learn.
Ad managers generally charge between $1000-$2000 per client a month. Some beginners will charge less to get more clients and testimonials, but if you’re working with a business that has good profit margins a $1000 a month is nothing compared to what they will receive in return for their investment.
So as an ad manager, you can make between $10,000 to $20,000 per month once you establish yourself and get a handful of clients.
One of the best ways to get your first clients is social media. You can see if anyone you know has a friend who owns a business or you can join Facebook groups for local businesses in your area and find business owners who would love to get more exposure for their business.
One tip I do have for you is to charge less for your first one or two clients and focus on getting them good results so you can leverage their testimonial to get more clients. I would even suggest taking on a few clients for free to get experience and to get your first testimonials.
When I first started years ago doing marketing for offline business owners I was honest and upfront that I was just getting started and all I cared about was getting results for them so I can get a testimonial to get more clients.
I had several people not interested because I was new, but many people couldn’t say yes fast enough because they had no desire to learn marketing and they really had nothing to lose if it didn’t work out.
Once you get your first testimonials you should not be charging less than $1000 per client because it’s worth it.
If you learn to master this skill and you can deliver results you can turn this into a full-scale agency where you can charge each client as much as $5,000 or more per month and you do everything for them.
Now obviously to really grow this you would need to build a team to manage everything, but there is a lot of growth potential here if you enjoy the job.
4.) Social media manager
The fourth work at home job on my list is a social media manager.
This job is very similar to being an ads manager, but for this job, you’re doing free traffic promotions for a business owner.
So you could be managing their FB fan page, Instagram or Youtube channel and helping them post their content and reply to posts and messages.
As a beginner, you would just be helping the business owner with posting their content and helping engage with their fans and potential customers.
As you develop your skills and learn to master the platform you could be the person consulting them and help them plan their content strategy and how to use the social media platform to get the best results for their business.
The more you develop your skills and the more you can deliver results the higher fees you can charge.
Social media managers on average make anywhere from $15 to $40hr.
So that means you could make around $2,000 to $6,000 per month working full time.
Just like a paid traffic manager if you enjoy this job you could build a team to help you turn this job into a full-scale agency and serve many clients.
The fifth work at home job on my list is becoming a Youtuber.
This is one of my favorite jobs because there are so many different ways you can make money as a Youtuber and the income potential can be huge.
You can make money from ad revenue which is actually making money from the ads that play on your videos, you can make money from sponsorships, merchandise, you can make money with affiliate marketing by promoting other people's products and you can make money selling your own products or services.
Youtube, in my opinion, is one of the best social media platforms we have available to make a full-time income from home and the great thing is that you can build a big business from Youtube just working a couple of hours per day.
There are so many different topics you can create content around that people have interests like cooking, gardening, parenting, personal development, make money online, weight loss, hobbies or anything you may be good at.
Some of the big misconceptions about Youtube is that it’s saturated or you need a large audience to make money.
I have one video on my channel that has just a little over 20,000 views at the time of recording this that I can track over $50,000 in sales.
Think about that for a min. A video that took me just a few hours to make and it’s generated over $50,000 in sales.
I also have a student who is in the real estate niche and he teaches how to wholesale real estate and he has one video he did a few years back that he can track over $350,000 in sales.
Youtube is far from saturated and it’s never been a better time to get started than right now.
Youtube is one of the best work at home jobs you can start because you don’t even need money to get started. You just need your cell phone and be willing to get out of your comfort zone and make videos.
Some of the biggest Youtubers started with their cell phones and went on to become multi-millionaires.
Youtube is by far one of my favorites on this list because it’s one of the few ways you can actually create passive income online. I think of Youtube as digital real estate.
With every video I create it’s an asset that works for me 24/7/365 and when you shoot videos consistently over a long period of time you have all these videos bringing you in leads and sales daily.
There are not many opportunities that can compare to Youtube because once you create all of these videos they can be out there working for you for years to come.
6.) Affiliate Marketing
The sixth work at home job on my list is affiliate marketing.
Affiliate marketing is simply promoting other people's proven products and when someone buys through your link you get paid a commission.
Affiliate marketing is how I made my first million dollars online and it’s still one of my favorite methods to make a full-time income online because you can get started with a very small investment, you don’t have to create products, you don’t have to be an expert, you don’t have to deal with customer service or a lot of the headaches that come with a lot of other business models.
Affiliate marketing is something pretty much everyone does, but most people don’t get paid for it. Affiliate marketing is simply referrals. You’re referring people to a product you like and know can help people solve a need or problem and you get paid when the person you referred makes a purchase.
You can find examples of affiliate marketing pretty much everywhere online.
Many Instagram influencers are doing affiliate marketing when they refer products to you.
Many Youtuber’s who do product reviews or tutorials are getting paid when you click the links in their description and buy a product they recommend.
You can learn affiliate marketing by either purchasing an online course or doing lots of research on your own.
You can find affiliate programs for just about every topic someone could be interested in. You can go to sites like Clickbank.com to find affiliate products for every category you can imagine like health, make money online, learning to speak a language, gardening, parenting or any product that is digital.
You can signup to one of the biggest affiliate programs online from Amazon and promote any product on their website.
Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to create a consistent, reliable and predictable income because you can learn all the marketing skills to grow a big business and focus on getting good at sells and then simply recommend products that will help the audience you will serve.
If you prefer to call your own shots, be location independent and you don’t really prefer to work with clients then this business is perfect for you. You can use all the skills we talked about in this video and build your own empire by applying those skills and recommending affiliate products.
There are many ways to build an affiliate marketing business, but one of the best ways to get into affiliate marketing is to start a Youtube channel and create videos around a niche you like and then recommend products that will help that audience.
Affiliate Marketing income can vary drastically based on your experience, how much time you put into your business and how consistent you’re.
If you work hard and stick with it, in my opinion, making six figures a year with affiliate marketing is very attainable, but with any business, you have to focus on leveling up your skills and consistently getting better.
The reason this is one of my favorite opportunities on my list is that you work for yourself and you’re not dealing with clients. Doing client work is great to get started, but for me personally, I got burned out very fast listening to other people complain and tell me what to do just like my job. I prefer to work on my own schedule and have creative freedom.
The great thing about affiliate marketing is a large part of the business you can turn into semi-passive income by building assets that keep working for you. This is something you can’t do with any of the other jobs on my list.
7.) Sales Funnel Builder
My final work at home job on my list is a sales funnel builder
Right now sales funnels are what everyone is talking about. This concept isn’t new it’s been around for years, but it’s become massively popular the last few years for a good reason.
Sales funnels are simply a series of web pages that guide people down a strategic process to become a customer.
Sales funnels allow you to sale your product 24/7/365 with automation.
Websites used to be the service everyone sold to business owners, but now people are getting smart and they realize that just having a website won't make them money and that is where a sales funnel comes into play.
Just like an ads manager, there are many business owners that need people like you to help them with the tech setup.
There are many different types of sales funnels and every business is different so there is no one size fits all approach.
With a sales funnel you will need to learn a few different skills like the tech setup and copywriting. The tech side of things is actually pretty easy because we now have dummy friendly drag and drop software that anyone can use.
The best way to learn how to build sales funnels for clients is by taking an online course.
You can either build the funnel and write the sales copy or you can be the person selling the funnels and outsource the work.
Sales funnels builders get paid per project and the prices vary depending on the type of funnel you build and the client's business.
You could charge as little as $500 to as much as $25,000 or more.
On average you could make around $2,000 to $10,000 per month as a funnel builder depending on how many projects you can handle and your experience and skills you have to offer.
You can learn how to build funnels by taking an online course and one of the best places to get clients is FB groups for entrepreneurs or Linkedin.
– Well, that wraps it up for the highest paying work home jobs you can start, but my final piece of advice for you is to pick a job you can see yourself sticking with and becoming the best at.
One of the huge mistakes I made was bouncing around to any job or business opportunity that would allow me to make money and I never took the time to ask myself if the job would be a good fit for me.
Pick a job that you find interesting and can see yourself doing and then learn everything you can to become the best. That is the secret to making a significant income online regardless of the opportunity you pick.
Ideally, if you can pick a job that aligns with your long term goals even better. So if you know you eventually want to run your own business, I would suggest picking a skillset that you later can carry over and use to build your own empire.
