the virtual assistant is one of those jobs that brought us the web (thanks internet) in practice your tasks can be the management of a social account, the formatting or editing of articles or the organization of travel meetings for clients you work with

There are many sites that are looking for editors to write articles, writing posts is a process that takes time as well as good skills

Bloggers and site owners always need help in the editorial team believe me 🙂

Social Media manager

another of the jobs born on the web, the task of a social media manager is to manage the image of a brand on the internet through posts, videos, photos and all the necessary digital tools


writing your own e-book can be a great way to earn extra money, many people write e-books on topics they are passionate about and who master and sell their digital books on dedicated platforms (see Amazon) or on social networks like Instagram

  • Teach online
  • Doing Surveys
  • Airbnb
  • Proofreading

the “copy” is the art of selling with writing, a more complex skill than just writing on the web, its own discipline with its rules and methods

Selling on Ebay

Old but always reliable eBay and its huge community is one of the reference sites for online sales in Italy and in the world, within which you can really sell everything

ETSY is a great place to sell handmade items, vintage items, if you are someone who loves DIY (do it yourself) and “do it yourself” I suggest you visit this site

I have to admit I am an Airbnb fan, I use it in all my travels and I believe it is a practical and revolutionary service

If you have a house (or a room) that you don’t use, you should think about putting it on Airbnb, this will allow you to earn some extra money thanks to the rent it can generate.


If you have a deep knowledge of the Italian language, if you pay attention to details and know the typographic rules well then you should consider doing proofreading.

Extra monthly offline earnings

Here are the main ways to earn extra money offline

  • Dog sitter

  • Delivery man

Dog sitter

If you love animals then this is the one for you. Walking dogs (or other animals) can be a lot of fun if you are a fan of our four-legged friends

Local tour guide

the premise is that you have to live in a place that has a minimum of tourist interest.

if yes, then one way to earn extra money could be to introduce your city through a sightseeing tour.

a tour of the best restaurants, the best bars, or organizing a bike tour are all great ways to connect with people who are interested in learning more


Today’s parents often find that they both have jobs that take up all day.

babysitters are a category of workers always requested by new families who need people who can regain time

Mystery Shopper

Delivery man
