Luckily, you live in the age of the internet and you know your way around technology. All you need is a connection, a laptop or a computer and the will to find an extra source of income.
Get Paid for Gaming and Streaming
It’s a known fact that gaming is no longer a hobby or just a regular way to spend your free time. It’s an official eSport and professional gamers get paid to play at a championship. They win quite a lot of money too. But no one needs you to turn pro. You just need to have an average skill and a camera set. Streamers and gamers make a lot of money too. They survive on donations.
If you’re a good player, you can give Twitch a try. In truth, people just want to be entertained so if you can match your gaming skill with some interesting commentary you’ll get a steady view base. It’s doesn’t even have to be a well-known game. You can play games from your smartphone and make videos of them on YouTube. People can check them out if they’re stuck on a level or to just hear you talk silly when you lose a level.
There’s another way of gaming that can help you earn money and that’s interactive gaming. These sites offer various promotions and bonuses you can use to play variants of tabletop games like poker, blackjack, roulette and slot games online. After doing a little research and finding out about a certain game you can look for it at a casino site and click play now. A quick tip would be to carefully read the terms of a bonus and to look for a game with a low house edge.
Start a Blog
Blogging is another job trend of the future. It’s not an actual job which is what makes it so easy. Anyone can do it. There are various types of blogs you can choose from. If you’re a mum you could make a killer blog in your free time. Your kids do silly stuff all the time so if you manage to film them and share that with the rest of the world for a laugh then you’ll get a big audience quickly. Also, you can talk about your personal experience as a mum, share recipes, give out advice, etc. If your articles are engaging a lot of people will read them.
Teach a Language Online
If you’re a mum in the UK then English is probably your native tongue. There are plenty of websites that offer language courses and are looking for native speakers. If you don’t remember your grammar that well then you can brush up by preparing according to the next lesson. Native speakers get paid more than an ESL speaker and if you know more than one language then you can teach it as well. Either way, your income will increase.
