Link products on your blog or profile and earn a little commission every time someone buys something using your link. My most favorite and most popular is Amazon Affiliate.

Do you love taking photos? You do not need professional camera, nowadays phones has really good camera quality. You can take photos for friends and family, or you can sell photos on Shutterstock and Dreamstime.

9. Create digital art

You can create printable planners, wall art, coloring pages, homeschooling worksheets and sell them on Etsy or on your own website.

Making money through YouTube has been so popular. If you love filming and editing, why not start a YouTube Channel. You can record your day in the life, makeup videos, hauls, tips, how to's, and literally anything you want.
