Unless you’re earning above $70,000 a year, chances are you’re still looking for ways to earn some more money and supplement your income. If you’re struggling with this, then the tips I’m sharing today will help you earn some more money.
The key is to get in on the gig economy while avoiding scams and shady offers from non-existent companies. The tips listed in this article are realistic. All you need is to do the work and you’ll be able to earn from these opportunities.
Sign Up as a Food Delivery Driver
If you have a car, you can easily make some cash delivering food to people’s homes through companies like Postmates, Grubhub, and Uber Eats.
All you have to do is sign up with the companies and start delivering meals to hungry residents in your city. This is a super-easy way to make some income on the side for everything from groceries to vacations. If this sounds like something you can do, by all means, jump on.
Get Paid to Shop for Others
Do you love shopping – I know I do! Then, you can easily shop to your heart’s content for other people and make some money doing it. Companies like Shipt makes this possible, and workers are known to earn up to $22 per hour. If this sounds good to you, then this in-demand service just might be what you need to earn some income on the side.
Start a Blog or Vlog on Youtube
If you love writing or vlogging, then you should definitely start a blog or get on Youtube and start producing content. Every year I earn five figures from my YouTube related work from ad revenue, affiliates payouts and sponsored content.
If you’re unsure of the content quality you should produce, check out blogs in similar niches –for example, https://sportnews.in/Cricket if you’re into sports- or popular Youtube channels in your niche. Whatever you do, just make sure that you provide immense value in the content you publish.
This is what will ultimately drive subscribers and help you grow your blog or Youtube channel to dizzying heights. Bloggers typically make between $200 and $2,500 monthly in their first year, with many going on to earn between $3,500 and $15,000 monthly –typically after optimizing their blogs for income generation.
Become a Product Influencer
Do you have an active social media presence? Do you have decent amount of subscribers? Is your audience interested in what you have to say? If you already have one or more of these attributes on any of the social media sites like Facebook, Tiktok, and Instagram, you can convert these platforms into a moneymaking opportunity.
All you have to do is contact potential advertisers –preferably companies with good products- about the possibility of collaborating with them or becoming an influencer or their brand. All you have to do as an influencer is post honest, unbiased product reviews and get paid for it. Or better yet, join a platform like impact.com
While these tips are a good place to start, some other side hustles you can do include driving on ride sharing platforms like Lyft and Uber, becoming an Amazon delivery driver, pet sitting, and babysitting.
