    You'd probably need to give more of an idea of what kind of skills you have in order to get any useful suggestions. There are plenty of threads on here already with ideas, have you read through those already?

    As per the previous response, it might be worth spending a little time going through some of the threads on here , see if anything else is suitable for you. Unfortunately there are very few, if any at all, easy to earn from ho e schemes .

    Also be very wary now that you have posted of people messaging you trying to sign you up for their MLM schemes.

    I would highly recommend UX-type surveys and studies, these are well-paying and interesting to do and they often have focus group-type tasks as well which pay even better. my favourite sites for this sort of work are, Prolific, Intellizoom, Userbrain and Userlytics, they all pay in cash not vouchers although some of them are US$ or Euro and you will need Paypal, Good luck.
  • Freelancing: Offer your skills on platforms like Upwork or Fiverr, such as writing, graphic design, programming, or social media management. Online Tutoring: Teach subjects you excel in on websites like Chegg Tutors or VIPKid. Affiliate Marketing: Promote products or services through your blog or social media and earn commissions for sales. Delivery Driver: Work for delivery services like UberEats, DoorDash, or Amazon Flex. Rent Your Space: List your spare room on Airbnb or your parking space on apps like JustPark. Pet Sitting/Dog Walking: Care for pets in your neighborhood through platforms like Rover or Wag Handyman Services: Offer your repair or maintenance skills on TaskRabbit Sell Crafts: Create and sell handmade crafts on Etsy or at local craft fairs Virtual Assistant: Provide administrative support to businesses remotely. Content Creation: Start a YouTube channel, blog, or podcast and monetize through ads, sponsorships, or merchandise sales.

    Theres actually a lot of options when you get creative.

    I do a physical job and recently got injured so looking into something I can do from a laptop.   Do you a link for the surveys and studies?

    I just purchased an engraving machine - wasn't cheap, but hopefully an investment! Just waiting for all my raw materials to arrive before I start building a bit of a catalogue and learning how to use it!! 

    I also create some YouTube video guides etc for some extra money.....
