Side hustles are ‘gigs’ you can do to make additional money. Nowadays, it’s possible (and recommended) to have them in order to boost your income.
You can choose to go online and follow your passion and still make money doing the things you love. Here are 5 suggestions on how to find additional cash-making opportunities.
There’s never a better time than now to engage in gaming as a pastime or a hobby. Aside from enjoying yourself, you can also make some money in various ways.
Online casinos are much like traditional land-based establishments in that they offer real money prizes when you win. You can visit a reputable site, such as Joker123 then make a deposit and a bet. When you win, you take home money and more.
There are cryptocurrency- and NFT-based games that let you earn while playing. In the same vein, you can stream what you’re playing on YouTube or Twitch and make a name for yourself (as well as subscriptions or donations).
Teaching has transcended the typical four walls of the classroom and now has a much greater reach. You could be teaching someone English, or basic computer skills across the world online and using video conferencing apps.
You’ll need a bit of patience and stock knowledge in order to teach. You can choose the content or subject, but it’s best to teach what you’re most passionate about. You can also pick the platform and type, such as a one-on-one meeting or holding a webinar every week or so.
Write or Vlog
The easiest way to write about your passion is creating a blog. A blog is a website where you can write down your thoughts, knowledge and recommendations about your hobby, profession or passion.
A blogger is someone who makes money by recommending products, through advertising on his or her website and traffic (or how many visits the website gets). In order to turn your blog into a legitimate money-making platform you’ll need to be consistent in terms of putting up content. Make a post or write an article at least twice a week so visitors have something to look forward to.
Sites such as Etsy offer craft makers a platform where they can sell handmade items and such. eBay is a popular website that puts up interesting items through bids. Amazon is the preferred platform for selling e-books, among others.
You can sell almost anything online, including photos, drawings and even the things you won’t need. Post a photo, a nice description and price and you can negotiate with interested buyers.
Side hustle passions can also be about work. You can spend those extra hours doing odd jobs, such as micro tasks, helping others and developing your skills further. Nowadays there are plenty of online platforms where you can sign up, and browse through available jobs you can do.
Working online typically only requires an internet connection and a smartphone or laptop. Also, most micro work websites let you register for free.
