Make Extra Money With 8 Easy Side Hustles

By Kirthana Devaser

Side hustling is a great way to make some extra cash outside of your 9 to 5 job. Here are eight of the best side hustles to get you started:

Freelance Your Talents!

Are you good at teaching? Do you like to write? Or maybe you’re really good at graphic designing? Whatever your talent, freelancing is a great way to start making extra money on the side!

Tutoring

You could easily sign up as a tutor on websites like My Tutor, Tutor Hunt, Revision Centre or Teacheron. A lot of these sites connect tutors to students seeking help from as early as the age of 6 to university-going students. If you’re good at a language, you could even try sites like Verbling that will connect you with people who are looking to learn a new language. The best part is, all these places cater to virtual classes! You could be based in the U.K. and teach a student in Singapore.

Writing

Writing is a great talent that should not be taken lightly. Sites like Fiverr allow writers to sell their talents over the internet. Remember, you would need to make sure every word you put on your profile is perfect. Poor grammar and spelling can be questionable, so make sure to double-check everything that you put on your profile. Be sure to include a professional photo and a grammar perfect description.

Once you have this all in check, you are ready to go!

Designing

Similarly, designing is a great talent that should not be taken lightly. You can register on sites like Fiverr as well to sell your services. Besides that, you may consider hosting drawing lessons and courses that may be popular on sites like clickbank.

Open a Print on Demand (POD) Store

You heard that right, open a business of your own. If you like making custom graphics and artwork, you would highly benefit from a print on demand store. A POD allows you to sell custom artwork on products such as stickers, bags, phone cases, mugs and even t-shirts! You would be able to create and sell these products under your own brand.

The logistics of the business can be completely automated by choosing to dropship your print on demand products. What does this mean? This means you design products, add them to the store, promote them and take orders from your customers. The orders are then fulfilled by the POD company of your choice that will print your designs onto these products and then ship these items directly to the customer. Some of these companies include Printful, Gelato, T-Pop, CustomCat and Printify.

Test products and services

If you have not heard about companies like TrymyUI, UserTesting, Userfeel, Userlytics… you need to get on it now. UserTesting is a website testing space. Brands from Walmart to startups use the platform to test their sites and usability. As a tester, you would be able to make $10 for every 20-minute test you complete. In an hour, you could easily make $30! The longer the test, the higher the remuneration.

Remember, this site requires complete honesty and a test trial before gaining full access to the website.

Become a Virtual Assistant

If you have some extra time on the side and are great at working remotely, this is a perfect opportunity for you. A virtual assistant can provide help with administration, social media, bookkeeping and more. As a virtual assistant, you can specialise in countless areas. Most virtual assistants trade their time for money. You may be likely paid based on the number of hours of work you do each week.

Drive for Uber or Lyft

This sharing economy has exploded in the last couple of years! As a Uber or Lyft driver, you would be able to offer your services at your convenience. You can turn on and off your availability allowing you to make money no matter the time of day. Side tip: Uber drives tend to make more during rush hour or late nights.

Create an online course

Similar to designing, you can create an online course for just about anything. From a language course to a cooking one, this is a great way to start making some money. You can create an online course with platforms such as Udemy or Teachable. Use these sites to leverage some of your skills to create a healthy income. The amount you could make from this depends on the amount of time you invest in your course. Depending on this, you could make a substantial side revenue stream by creating courses that deliver huge amounts of value to consumers. So what are you waiting for? Get started now!
