Having a side hustle is a great way to complement your income in order to accomplish your financial goals or pay off debt. Here are seven side hustle ideas for you to earn more money:
1) Resell Items To Make a Profit
Many people are making a lot of money online by ‘flipping’ cheap or even free items. Their main strategy is going to websites like Craigslist and finding items that people are giving away or buying inexpensive products at flea markets, and listing them online on websites like eBay to make a profit. This couple from Florida makes a 6 figure income by doing this.
2) Do Tasks Around Your Area
If you have time to run errands such as furniture assembly, cleaning, mounting, yard work, shopping, delivery, home repairs, and any other stuff, you can use apps such as TaskRabbit as a side hustle. The average pay is around $10 to $50 per hour depending on the task. Alternatively, you can use Handy, Thumbtack, and Needto.com.
3) Rent Your Space For Storage
Do you have extra space in your basement, garage, closet, or driveway? You can use services like Neighbor.com to rent your space out to people who need space to put their stuff. You can earn up to $15,000 by doing that without that much effort. You’re paid once a month by a direct deposit.
4) Write Books
Nowadays you don’t need to be a professional author, or even write fiction to publish a book and sell it to the public. All you need to do is choose a niche such as business, self-help, recipes, etc, and start writing. You can write as little as 2,500 words, so it does not have to be a massive book. The most known, and probably most profitable place to publish your book is Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) in which you earn a royalty for every book you sell on their platform. There, you can sell ebooks or even paperback books for free.
5) Get Paid to Grocery Shop
Another great flexible way to earn money is by delivering groceries to customers using apps like Instacart. Some of the requirements are being at least 18 years old, being able to lift as much as 50 pounds, own a smartphone, pass a background check, and have a bank account. You will earn at least $5 per delivery and you have the possibility of earning tips as well.
6) Offer Consultation Services
Are you an expert in your field? If you know you can provide valuable insights to people who want to learn about a certain subject, such as social media marketing, strategic planning, public speaking, etc, you can use websites like Clarity.fm. This service works like this: you complete your profile, customers find you and request a call, you get on with the call and after it’s finished you receive your money. You can earn anywhere from $60 up to $300 per hour by doing this.
7) Offer Cleaning Services
Cleaning is a service that is always on demand, and it’s an excellent way to make money part-time. Most people underestimate how much money they can make by doing that. You can earn as much as $75 for three hours of work, depending on your client base and experience. You can start by advertising your services on Craigslist and Facebook, or even using apps such as Handy, MaidsApp, and Tidy.
