Are you a self-proclaimed introvert and you prefer to stay in the house rather then going out?
Are you looking for another stream of income that you can make from the comfort of your own home so you don’t have to pick up a second job & deal with asshole bosses and coworkers?
Do you hate people and would prefer to not be around them? (just kidding about the “hate” part….well kinda…)
I get it…
I’m an introvert myself and I find that being around people can be draining.
I would rather deal with people in person if it’s absolutely necessary…but otherwise i’d rather not.
And if you’re an introvert reading this, I’m sure you can relate.
But there’s another topic introverts have to deal with…and it’s called making money.
Traditionally, the usual ways to make money is having to deal with people face-to-face for 8 hours a day.
Whether it’s dealing with rude customers at a retail store, hearing customer complaints over the phone as a customer service rep or navigating through pesky office politics at a corporate job, it can be draining and tiring for introverts.
But as of 2020, we have new ways to bring home the bacon. People are now making life changing income from the comfort of their own homes.
If you’re reading this article, I know you want the same for yourself.
You want to be self-sufficient, financially independent, and be able to provide to your family without having to deal with the annoyance of people.
So without any more talking, I’m going to show you 13 Ways to Make Money From Home for Introverts!
Blogging is a great way to make money from home especially for introverts.
People are blogging about all sorts of topics such as relationships, parenting, personal finance, DIY, travel, marketing and they are making good money at the same time.
Heres my honest advice to you if you want to start blogging: Pick a topic that you are passionate about.
It will be easier for you to continue working hard and pushing through those times when you’re not seeing much growth.
However, If you pick a niche that you don’t have any passion for and only want to blog about it because you see other people making money, you will give up quickly when you are not seeing the results you desire.
If you want to know how people make money from blogging, it’s usually through these methods;
- Affiliate Marketing (promotiong other people’s product for a commission)
- Creating an Online Course/Selling Ebooks
- Merchandise Sales
If you want to learn how to launch your blog post, I wrote an article called How to Start a Blog Easily in 2020!. This article walks you through each step to creating your own blog and launching your first blog. Check it out now!
Kindle Publishing is an online money making method I’ve had success with in the past.
Basically Kindle books are short novels that you can publish on the Amazon Kindle Publishing Platform and sell for a certain price.
You can write books in all sorts of niches such as romance, business, health & fitness, personal development and more!
If you like to write, I highly suggest you look into Kindle Publishing.
If you release quality books and gain a loyal audience, it can really bring in some serious income.
Yes, I know it’s hard to believe, but people are actually making money playing video games!
And the top tier gamers are making insane amounts of money!
If you have a favorite game (or games) that you like to play, you can livestream them on Twitch or Mixerr.
When you start growing an engaged audience, you will be able to sell merchandise to them, or become a sponsor for large companies to show off their products.
Other revenue opportunites for gaming streamers is that you can make money off the advertisements that run on your channel and receive donations from your fans.
Another platform where you can make money as a gamer is on YouTube.
People are uploading video tutorials of their favorite games and highlight reels.
You can monetize YouTube ideos with advertisements and the money keeps rolling in.
This is the perfect way to make money from home if you love video games and you’re an intovert.
You can make some serious bank working as a proofresader from the comfort of your own home.
If you have excellent grammar & writing skills and have the ability to spot errors & mistakes quickly, then working as a proofreader may be for you.
Lots of people need their blog posts, ebooks, books, user manuals and other written content proofread and mistakes corrected.
You can find proofreading jobs on Upwork, Proofreadingservices.com, and Flexjobs.com.
Selling items on eBay is an excellent way to make money from home especially for introverts.
Gone are the days where you had to hawk your items in crowded flea markets or stand outside in the blazing hot sun at the neighborhood yard sale trying to sell your used clothes.
Anyone can sell on eBay. It doesn’t take any special skills or knowledge to get started.
If you have things you don’t use anymore such as books, clothes, shoes, jewelry, electronics, etc, you can list them on eBay for sale and bring in some money.
eBay is a much better way to sell items because the transaction is done online, you don’t have to interact face to face with anyone, nor take the precious time out of your day to set up a stall to sell items.
Which makes it one of the perfect ways to make money from home for introverts 🙂
Amazon FBA (Fulfillment By Amazon) is another good option to make money from home for introverts although it takes a bit of time and knowledge to set up correctly.
But even thought it’s a bit more involved then eBay, the money you can make far outweighs the work you have to put in to create a successful Amazon storefront.
With Amazon FBA, you source private label items from a manufacturer, usually from China, and put them on Amazon for sale.
My advice for you if you want to get into Amazon FBA is to take a course from a repubatble Amazon FBA seller that has experience, has been successful and has the proof to back up his/her claims.
If you are willing to put in the upfront work to creating a reputable Amazon storefront, then I would suggest this as a work from home option especially if you’re an introvert.
Becoming a Virtual Assistant (VA for short) is a viable and popular option for those that are introverts and want to work from home.
If you are a good multi-tasker and well versed with email, Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint and other office taskss, this is a job you may very well like.
To get hired as a Virtual Assistant, you need to have a solid internet connection, be comfortable with operating a PC, have a relaiable computer, multitasking skills, and work well with clients.
Business owners hire VA’s all the time because it’s much cheaper to outsource work to VA’s then to pay in house staff salary and benefits.
Also business owners can’t be bothered with doing busy tasks because they need to focus on building a business, not creating Excel spreadsheets.
To find work as a Virtual Assistant, got to Upwork.com, Flexjobs.com and Toptal.
Etsy is a marketplace where you can sell hand made arts & crafts to people all around the world.
I’ll admit, I don’t have a lick of experience with this site, but I’ve heard great things about it from the arts & craft community.
If you’re the artsy type, this is probably a good site to list your items since they already have the traffic coming into their site and you don’t have to go out and find customers.
Sell Services on Fiverr
Fiverr is beyond awesome.
I’ve been using it for years and I can honestly say that I’ve had a good experience buying gigs and services on the platform.
If you’re not familiar with Fiverr, it’s basically a marketplace where freelancers can sell their services for a starting price of $5.
The type of services that you can sell on Fiverr are:

If you have a talent, hobby, skill, or posess specialized knowledge about a subject, you should consider starting a YouTube Channel.
Plenty fo YouTube creators are making serious money by creating videos that entertain, educate, or inspire their audience.
And you want to know the most interesting thing about YouTube?
Most of the YouTube conent creators are introverts just like YOU!
They would rather make videos to serve their audience in the comfort of their own home rather then getting on stage at a venue and succumbing to stage fright.
Also a good amount of YouTube creators are making money hand over fist.
The way YouTube content creators make money from their videos is by monetizing their videos with advertisements, sellling merchandise and products.
If you are not afraid to get on video, then I would suggest creating a YouTube channel.
Social Media Manager
According to statistics, almost 40% of small businesses don’t have any form of Social Media accounts.
Becoming a Social Media Manager is a viable work from home option if you love being on social media.
There are plenty of small businesses that don’t know the first thing about how to post or manage their social media accounts.
You will also be surprised to hear the staggering amount of small business owners that don’t even know how to set up thier own social media accounts and pages!
That’s when you can come in to save the day!
You can approach small businesses and offer to set up, to the posting, and manage their social media channels for a fee.
Obviously you need to know what you’re doing, so you want to approach these business owners as a knowledgable professional and show them the value of being on social media.
If you can show them why it’s important to be on social media and come across as a competent professional, you will earn their business.
If you have a way with words and know how to get people to open up their wallets and say “yes” by using the power of the written word, then working from home as a copywriter may be the pefect profession for you.
There are many people out there in the world who have products they want to sell, but have no clue on how to actually “Sell” it.
These folks are desperately seeking copywriters who know how to hit potential customers pain points with the written word.
If you are a good writer and you know how to sell, then copywriting is a good work from home option you can pursue.
You can find copywriting clients on Upwork, forums, networking on social media, etc.
My advice is to niche down to a specific industry like fitness, online marketing, relationships, etc, so you can be the “go to” source and be able to charge more.
