Bringing in extra money is something most of us are looking to accomplish. The pandemic has left thousands of people with financial limitations that they’re looking to overcome. In this article, we go over seven best side hustles to get you the extra cash you need to get back on your feet.
- Become a Blogger
Starting a blog can be a rewarding stream of income if you’re willing to put in the time and effort it takes to make it successful. Learn the ropes of SEO and use algorithmic tools to harness your target audience. Set a financial goal for yourself, and don’t stop until you get there! You might also consider content writing as a side hustle. There are plenty of bloggers who have already landed some success that need help with guest posts.
- Deliver Local Groceries
Whether through Instacart or a local market, grocery runners are a popular side hustle. You can make your schedule and pick up jobs as they are assigned. Most runners who work full time earn about $600 a month. You can also consider working as a delivery driver through popular platforms, like Doordash, Postmates, and Ubereats. The money you gain working for delivery services might not be enough to spark your interest in commentary on MBS market and how you might start investing, but it will pay your bills.
- Be a Freelance Tutor
Tutoring is a growing side hustle if you have a college degree. There are even opportunities for tutors to travel while they teach. Embracing the digital nomad lifestyle brings in extra cash and gives you the chance to see new places. Tutors are frequently looking to find jobs as tutors interested in teaching children from other countries how to speak English. Not only do you get to travel, you’ll likely make more than local tutors.
- Hustle As a Handyman
If you know how to build things, work for yourself as a handyman. Now that Spring is here, people are looking for help with home improvement. You’ll be able to quote per project and gain loyal clients. We recommend using Nextdoor to market your services. You might end up being the top handyman in your neighborhood, making work lucrative and convenient.
- Be a Mover
If you own a truck, work as a mover. If you can find out-of-state moves, you’ll likely make a lot for a few days of work. Check Craigslist for gig opportunities and consider advertising in your community. This work is convenient because you’re unlikely to work every day. You’ll also earn more than someone working a standard 9am-5pm job on the days that you do work.
- Pet Services Pro
Using apps like Rover, you can become a pet services provider. Choose from pet-sitting, dog walking, and house sitting using the app. Look into tips for how to promote your services on social media and neighborhood sites as well. Using apps is recommended as positive reviews boost your viewability by pet owners. You’ll make more money as you gain positive feedback from happy pet parents who are thankful to you for stopping relentless dog barking and other bad habits their pets have turned to when left alone.
- Self-Employed Beauty Artist
If you’re a certified hair stylist, nail artist, or other beauty expert, consider working for yourself. Use Facebook Marketplace to market your beauty services and gain a local client base without the hassle of working through a company. Be your own boss and make the most of the need for socially distanced beauty treatments. You can even offer to travel to client homes and charge more for the convenience you’re offering.
Side hustles are popping up everywhere in the digital world. Use these ideas wisely and gain the extra money you deserve.
