The idea of working from home has been welcomed and loved by many South Africans.
With the correct knowledge and skills, you can add more income streams to supplement your current salary while working from home.
Remember to build real wealth, you must keep adding more residual income instead of trying to replace your current active one.
Let’s get started.
Freelancing in South Africa has a lot of business opportunities for people to earn side money.
Try to offer your skills to small businesses that cannot afford to consult with a bigger company. That way, you can charge them less for doing the work after hours.
Every piece of content you’ve read requires a certain writing skill set for perfect storytelling.
If you love writing, then you’d be happy to learn you can actually make a living, earning income working from home.
A lot of companies outsource content writing to freelancers on Fiverr and other local agencies. You can become one of their preferred writing consultants to work with.
Here’s a kicker.
You can also create a blog or write content for YouTubers and earn royalties for your work once it starts bringing in revenue.
Bloggers make much more these days with the right advertising or monetization methods.
3. Resell Web Hosting
Almost all web hosting companies offer reselling opportunities for digital marketing agencies and freelancers to make money online.
The hosting companies will charge you a set fee every month and less domain registration costs so that resellers can make a profit too.
A great business idea that will run itself while you’re busy building a bigger clientele, from home. You just need to get more domains in your reseller account and it’ll start paying itself up every month.
4. Rent Backrooms
Someone once told me that the renting business is way higher than the property buying business. What it means is that people nowadays prefer to rent than buy expensing properties on bond payments.
So if you have a cottage or back rooms, it’s your opportunity to start earning monthly income with them. Depending on your location, you could rent your back rooms for R2,300 per month.
People are always moving and trying to find better places to rent, make them wanna stay in your back rooms.
