We see it all over social media, people posting about how their side hustle just paid for their week long vacation to Cabo. As the old saying goes, “If you can’t beat them, join them.” Here’s a list of side hustle opportunities for you that will earn you some extra cash without chaining you to them time clock.
This is probably one of the most social media promoted forms of side gigs. There are so many out there to choose from too. The types of companies range from clothing to make up to health and fitness. How they work is you sign up under someone already involved with the company and you sell and promote the products they have. You make commission off of what you sell but the real money maker is getting people to sign up as distributors underneath you. The more people you have under you, the more of a kick back you get. Generally you get a higher commission the more people on your team and the occasional bonus. The higher you are in the company the bigger the perks are. Some companies send you on lavish vacations on their dime and all you have to do in return is post every detail of it on social media to promote their brand and business.
Staring an Etsy shop
Do you love to craft? Turn that passion into something bigger and more profitable by opening up an Etsy shop! Advertise your items on the convenient app and you can either fill the orders as they come in or keep a stock of them to ship out when needed. It’s great because you can work at your own pace, make some extra money, and do what you love. You may have to get a business license depending on what state you live in. If you just want to keep it small and don’t want to deal with the shipping, try selling your crafts at your local craft fair. Most places have one come through at least once a year. It’s a great way to make a quick buck.
Using Selling apps
Got a bunch of junk you found after spring cleaning? You know what they say, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Don’t just throw away that perfectly good blender you don’t use anymore. Sell it in on one of those apps like Offer Up or Let Go. It’s easy to list and you are able to make money off of something you would have otherwise thrown away.
Ride sharing is such an easy side hustle to do and is perfect for anyone. If you’re new to the area and want to get a feel for the town or if you’ve lived there forever you can give someone a ride to where they need to go and make a little cash while doing it. With busier areas and times the prices for your ride rises and you make even more dough. The nice thing about this side job is you can work literally whenever you want.
Just like ride sharing, this side job you can do whenever you want. The customer orders their food through an app you go and pick it up at the restaurant and bring it to them. It can’t get simpler than that. It’s perfect if you aren’t a very social butterfly
