7 Seriously Legit Ways You Can Earn $$$ Working From Home

Get the cash without getting off of your ass.

1. Sell Data On Your Phone Habits:

You download the apps, and then all you have to do is keep them installed on your phone. They collect data on your online habits though, so here's hoping you're not shy about your porn usage.

2. Sell Your Shit Online:

Not your poop-shit, but your stuff-shit. The amount you make depends on what you sell. Just don't sell your computer/phone; you'll need that.

3. Become A Search Engine Evaluator:

If you work for one of these companies, you can freelance in cleaning up search results. Computers are great, but they still need humans to make sure Bing is working correctly! You can make up to $12/hour.

Companies to contact:

* Leapforce (for Google)

* Lionbridge

* Appen

4. Rent Your Room:

Given that it's cool with your parents or landlord, you could try renting your room on Airbnb. Do you have wifi? Do you have a bed? Good! Your place is rentable.

5. Sit On Some Dogs:

Through Rover, you can get paid to watch dogs without leaving your house. Or you can watch the dog at the dog's home and get a free place to stay. Did I mention dogs are involved? The one downside: you might be competing with some crazy people willing to do this for free.

6. Invest In The Stock Market:

I think eTrade will give you free money? Look, I don't know much about this. But if you have money, you can make it get bigger by just betting on the right stocks. You don't even have to do anything! It's really amazing and great for rich people out there!

7. Become A Hacker:

This would not be legitimate in the legal sense, but it is a genuine way to make money. You need a black hoodie and sunglasses. Oh yeah, and the ability to hack. Sites like Evilzone will teach you. Then it's only a matter of time before you're stealing bitcoins from ISIS (I assume this is who you will steal from).

Do not be like this old lady; don't give out your personal information to randos. Always google the company you want to work for to make sure they're on the up and up.

And remember, the BEST way to make money from home is to get a legitimate job using your creative talents. People need writers, editors, voice actors, assistants, etc. These positions tend to be freelance, but if you want the benefit of working from home, that might be a sacrifice you're willing to make.
