12 Ways to Make Money Easily Testing Websites from Home
Jobs as a Digital Nomad

A website tester makes sure that websites run smoothly and are customer-friendly before (and after) they are launched. It is more cost-effective to pay for a tester than to fix numerous complaints and deal with bad reviews on top of that.

There is nothing worse for a company than to pay thousands of dollars to have a website that in the end doesn’t meet their customers needs. 

If you have programming skills and can easily spot little discrepancies here and there, this job will definitely suit you. It is a lot easier than designing a website or creating content, you just need to make sure that the website or app does what it is supposed to do.

INSTAGRAM INFLUENCER

  • What is an Instagram Influencer? 

Someone who uses their Instagram account and following to share their stories and advice.

  • How do Instagram Influencers make money? 

Believe it or not, you can actually make a living as an Instagram influencer! Much of how they make money is by doing sponsored posts or through long term partnerships with a brand. That said, many Instagrammers have a website, sell their own products (like Lightroom presets!), or dabble in affiliate marketing in order to supplement the sometimes unsteady income that brand partnerships generate.

Tips for getting started: 

If you don’t already have an Instagram account, that’s the first step (obviously!). Work on improving your photography and captions. Grow your audience by interacting with other accounts and experimenting with hashtags. Be genuine, and resist the urge to copy the other influencers out there. Hone in your own voice and give people a reason to follow you. And NEVER buy followers. This will only come back to hurt your business.
