Web Design 

Do you work in a profession where you are required to maintain your employer's website? Or, do you have a small business and created and updated your own website? Hundreds of small business owners have not started a website out of a lack of know-how or fear. I have helped multiple non-profits like  D.R.E.A.M. Financial Academy create their website using free resources on the internet. The entrepreneurs that you work with may not know where to start. Providing this service using your knowledge, skills, and abilities can be done with no money and can help you earn between $500 - $1,000 per build.

Blogging

Writing is a great way to share your knowledge with the world. Picking a topic that you know a lot about can make an impact on your audience. However, when blogging, you should first define your audience, choose a topic that you are passionate about, and ensure that it's a topic that people will be interested in reading. For example, not everyone will be interested in the different grass varieties available in Florida, but they may be interested in ways to eat healthier or manage their finances.

So how do you make money blogging? You can increase your revenue stream by authorizing ads on your site through affiliate marketing, offering your business services and other digital products.
