“Are you ready to finally start earning more money this year? Who isn’t?
A few years ago, I was working at a job that didn’t quite pay all my bills. Sound familiar? Even if you have all your bills paid, earning a few bucks on the side isn’t such a bad thing.
While you could work more hours at the office or start your side business, there are also plenty of other chances for you to easily earn money on the side without much effort. Don’t believe me? Check out the following 30 examples.
If you have expert advice to share or are passionate about a certain topic then you can get paid to actually write about your experience or hobby. You can start by launching your own blog. After you do promotions on social media, reach out to influencers, and find guest writing opportunities to validate that you’re an industry leader, you can charge for ad space or become an affluent marketer. Pat Flynn is an excellent resource if you want to know how lucrative blogging can be, so I suggest you check out his advice.
Besides your own blog, you can also get paid to write for other people. The problem with writing for others is that sometimes you’ll only be able to find low-paying writing gigs on sites like Upwork. There are, however, plenty of decent paying writing job opportunities–sometimes in the $40 to $100 range. To help you get started, review this list put together by Writers in Charge.
There’s no shortage of companies who are in need of either short-term or contract employees. In fact, you can do a quick search on Google and find hundreds of temp and hiring agencies in your region. Not only can this help you find a quick side gig, temping allows you to develop new skills and potentially land a permanent position that is better than your current position.
3. Invest in Real Estate
When I was younger I was part of school maintenance crew during my summer vacation. I’ll never forget the advice that one of the full-time employees told us kids – purchase land, because there’s only so much of it. Even though the housing market has gone through some pretty significant changes, there’s still an opportunity to make side money by flipping houses, renting out vacation home, duplexes, triplexes, quads, commercial spaces, and undeveloped land.
4. Develop Websites or Applications
If you enjoy tinkering around with code, then why aren’t you cashing in on your skills? Coders can make between $75 to $150 per hour. Best of all, you can even use free software to design your programs, which means you can cut out this expense and keep it in your wallet. Also, if you are not using this skill at least part of the time, you will become a little rusty at it. Then, when you need it, the skill won’t be there or you will have a lull while you get yourself back up to speed. Here is a guide to programming that I put together for everyone out there looking to get started.
5. Give Tours of Your City
If you’re intimately familiar with your hometown, and you love sharing that knowledge, then why not give tours of your city when you have downtime–like on the weekends?
While you could start you own tour guide business, you can also use sites like ToursByLocals, Shiroube, or Vayable to find tour guide opportunities….”
