8 Legitimate Online Home-Based Businesses To Start.

Due to different situations and circumstances people face nowadays, there is a need to make money online from home. Today, we will go over 8 legitimate online home based businesses almost anyone can start. At the end of the article I will also include other ways to earn money online as a bonus for anyone who won’t work as hard, or put in the effort needed for long term success 🙂

Let’s Go!!!

Or like my people down south say “Lego”…lol, but seriously.


Anyone knows that there is always a logo attached to most if not all successful brands or businesses, as a logo designer you could make a lot of money for your creative designs. Once people are able to see what you have to offer, you have more options as you market yourself correctly and remain consistent with your work.

I happen to have a cousin who lives in Las Vegas and designs Logos for about $250 to start… I had no idea when I asked him if he would design one for me, that was how much they cost on average for high quality and unique designs. Imagine if you designed one of the logos in the video below, how much do you think you could have made.




I’m sure I scared some people with this one, so many people don’t realize how simple it is to build a website with all the tools and software available today. Yes, you can really build a website without any technical or coding experience at all, it’s as simple as copy and pasting sometime.

Some people build websites for clients who have businesses but don’t have an online presence and could benefit from it. That is a great way to start your website building business and help an existing business at the same time, plus you can get referrals from clients and grow your business quickly.


A good friend of mine Ovidilio Vasquez who is now focused on public speaking, shared a good tool he used called builderall to accomplish this. He would design websites for small business (Food Trucks) and sell them to the owners to help create more revenue for them and himself. (He made an average of $1,500 per site… not bad right?)


If you haven’t noticed, these ideas we are talking about all involve some creative input from YOU if you want to make something happen. When I say Custom Creations I am talking about a variety of things that people use already and purchase constantly, all you have to do is put your creative spin on things and share with the world.

Have you heard of Teespring?

I found this to be an awesome way to create a variety of products that others could purchase and potentially make you lots of money as well. The main thing is Apparel such as T-shirts, hoodies, sock, leggings e.t.c. They also have other accessories such as mugs, towels, totes and many more that you can customize and sell online.

The great part is it is free to start and you don’t have to invest any money upfront for any products you decide to design and sell online, once the product is sold you get your commission and the company keeps the difference. SIMPLE, check out this example of an awesome design I created and let me know in the comments if you decide to grab one.



Educating others and creating courses online can sound almost as scary as building your own website, and many people may scroll down and look at the next option instead. This is a great way to earn money online and start a business, it also allows you the opportunity to earn a recurring income as well.

Once the research is done, and the need for the course has been established all you have to do is put it together. There are many platforms that are available today for online course creation, TEACHABLE is one I would recommend that you check out if you are ready to educate the world and share your expertise.

You have the freedom to charge as much or as little for your course, the better you become with helping others through lessons there becomes a need for more courses and more opportunity to make money.


If you are someone who loves to write and it comes to you naturally, this is definitely an option you want to explore to turn your passion into a business and start earning cash. I remember being in school and not really enjoying any of the writing assignment except for free writing. I am more of a numbers and business person, writing isn’t my strongest skill set.

Many people get stuck on content creation at some point or another, there are many tools available to help with the writing process and resources that can help you become successful. Once you decide to create your blog, there will usually be a niche that you choose to build content around and engage your audience. From there you can begin to monetize as you build.

Just like the course creation we talked about earlier, there are different platforms you can utilize for creating your blog or website, I recommend using Wealthy Affiliate for many reasons. I have listed some reasons why I think they offer one of the best affiliate programs and training available today in a different article, feel free to check it out if you like.

Almost anyone involved with affiliate marketing online knows about the Amazon associates program, there is also something available for artisans who would rather create with their hands and sell their products online leveraging the traffic from amazon. It is almost as easy as setting up an email account, you just have to get approved by Amazon before you begin. Check out the video below on how to get started and what to expect.


Similar to starting a website or blog, starting a podcast is another one of the legitimate home based businesses you can get started. Some people would rather talk to their audience and engage in that manner, as opposed to writing and sharing knowledge that way.


Again there are many topics you can get into and bring value to your audience from making money online, to dating and many more. As you grow and build a following it will create opportunities to monetize your podcast with ads, sponsors, and so no. Just like anything we have been talking about I would encourage you to do your homework and make sure you understand what you are getting into.


Almost everyone is using YouTube or has heard of it, which means the potential to reach people with your message is HUGE if you were using it to build your business. There are many people you have become successful from recording the most basic things and uploading them to YouTube, create a following, and begin monetizing their channel.

Affiliate marketing links are found on most videos you watch on YouTube, and that is only one way in which people may monetize their channel.

Some people you may want to check out to get a better Idea of what I mean.

8 Legitimate online home based businesses covered, now on to the bonuses.


There are lots of simple ways to make money online using your smart phone, tablet, or computer and I will give you a few of those here. Let me say results may differ depending on your efforts, and other factors just like anything else, I intend to share the system that is working for me and how I have earned some quick cash with the same strategies.



This is probably my favorite app for making money fast and earning cash back when I make purchases at certain locations. When you sign up with Dosh, you automatically get $5 in your wallet within the app and you can get $5 every time you refer someone who signs up and links a card to get cashback on purchases they make.

They also have online retailers available if the local options don’t fit your needs, so you can still earn cashback on purchases you make.

$$$ MAKING FORMULA: If you didn’t already see it, here it is…..

Sign up with Dosh = $5

Invite 5 friends to save money using Dosh = $25 (Once they link a card)

Total Profit = $30 (EASIEST $$$ YOU EVER MADE)



This is a simple to use app that simply allows you to send and receive money from anyone with the app as well. If you are familiar with apps like Zelle or Venmo, then this app should be something you understand.

I don’t think you get any cash back incentives to use Zelle or Venmo, but please correct me if I’m wrong. All you need to do is download this app to claim your first $5, let friends know about the app via your custom link and keep getting $5 every time someone else signs up.


If you are able to use the two apps we just talked about simultaneously, then you can earn $10 per referral. Again these are real simple ways to earn extra cash for gas, movies, and small things. Check out the wealthy affiliate platform I mentioned earlier if you are looking to make real money from referrals and build one of the online home based businesses we discussed.




I know it sounds kinda crazy, but you actually get paid to take selfies and sometimes you can just upload a photo you already have on your phone. I have seen up to $1 for a selfie, and as low as $.20, your not gonna quit your job and start taking selfies but it can add up after a while.selfie-cash


New tasks or selfie options are available weekly and you can always choose to which one you want to do. Once you reach the minimum threshold of $20, you can cash out via PayPal or donate to a charity of your choice.

There is also a $.50 referral for every friend you invite to TAKE A SELFIE


Too many people are looking for a secret sauce that just doesn’t exist, and often they never put in the WORK for their dreams to become a reality. JUST REMEMBER, IT WON’T WORK UNLESS YOU WORK IT!!! that applies to anything you do in life. Leave any questions, comments, or concerns below. I look forward to seeing your feedback and responding promptly.

Thanks for taking the time to read this article, I hope you found value and you plan on taking action on at least one of these strategies.

Best regards,

Passive Income For You

  1. Hey Jefrey

    I am into passive income and have sorted out some opportunities that I am working on or will work on in the future. This blog is really informative and has shown me some ways of earning passive income that I didn’t know before! Are you working with these income methods you are mentioning yet?

    1. Hi Simon,
      Thank you so much for checking out the article, I am glad that you found some new ways of earning passive income from the information provided. I am working with on creating more content like this for my blog, it is my main focus at this time. I have also made a T-shirt design or two using Teespring, I have not really done much marketing but I think it can definitely be a profitable way to earn extra money. The Dosh app is awesome, I know everyone shops and saving money on things you already are going to buy is a great way to get extra cash. I really love the idea of referring and getting paid for that, you don’t even have to buy anything to get paid. I already cashed out $26 from referrals, which is not bad. I have also used the Cash App to send and receive money from friends ad family, $5 for referring others so it’s another great way to earn extra cash doing basically nothing but sending a link to someone. As I get more articles on the site and setup more systems, I will have more time available to focus on more things to generate passive Income. What are some passive income opportunities that you are working on, or planning on working on? I am curious to see if I can provide some insight or try them out myself at some point. Thanks again for checking out the article and leaving some feedback, I look forward to providing more helping ideas that you can use in the future.

      Best regards,

  2. I’ve also been on the other end of logo design – the buying side, and they are expensive if it’s actually good work! Makes me want to sign up for a design course online or something – actually I was wondering if you might have any suggestions on where I could learn some of these things? They’re great ideas but I feel like a lot of them require some kind of training/tutorials.

    You did kinda scare me with the website building one haha! And while it doesn’t necessarily have to involve any coding or fancy technical stuff, there’s still a learning curve that can be a bit intimidating. I know because I’m actually working on building a website (just for myself) currently.

    Podcasting and Vlogging sound awesome, too! It’s hard to come up with ideas sometimes, so thanks for putting this list together. Gets me a bit inspired to start thinking about my next project anyway. In the meantime I’ma go sign up for DOSH cuz that sounds great. ^^

    1. Hi Rachael, 

      Thanks for checking out this post ans leaving your comments I am sure that you can use any of these methods to become successful online, which one of these do you find the most interesting and exciting for you?

       I would choose that and move forward to create something of value that others can benefit from. There are many platforms that are available which allow you to get some practice with all these concepts, and they are free to try as well. I would recommend checking out Design Evo, it is a free app that allows you to work on different creative designs. There are others too, this is just one I have downloaded on my phone.

      When it comes to website builders, using the WA platform is my choice and since I can get help from others who are more experienced, it makes it easier to find answers when I get stuck on something. There are awesome training videos that also walk you through setting up a lot of the pieces to the puzzle.

      I really like Teesprings concept as well for coming up with creative designs that others may like and purchase, which makes you money without spending anything upfront. Another option I heard of that is similar is Printable, I will be checking them out as well because you can actually design your own hats which I think is pretty cool.

      If you are interested in learning more about Podcasting I highly suggest you check out Pat Flynn. He is very successful in that space and has lots of great information you can use if you decided to go that route.

      YouTube is very cool because if you are new to video creation, they offer a many tutorials to help you create and build your channel the right way. Even if you have experience, there are still lessons that will help you create a better channel that will attract visitors and allow your channel to grow.

      I am really curious to know how you are building your website now and what it is all about, and If there are any tips I can share with you to assist. 

      Thanks for checking out this post and leaving a comment, feel free to share with others and stop by again for more content I hope will help and inspire you to create greatness. Look forward to hearing from you soon. 

      Best regards,
