4 Sides Hustles Anyone Can Earn Extra Cash With
Let’s get real for a few minutes before we start this post. When we talk about side hustles, we are talking about legitimate secondary income streams that require a little bit of work. If you aren’t interested in working, then none of these ideas are going to pan out for you. However, if you are like most of people living on a fairly tight budget and would love a little bit of extra income each month to use for sport/dance/music lessons for your kids. You may just want to earn a little bit of extra me money so that you can finally buy that dress you’ve been eyeing at Nordstroms without feeling guilty.
1. Sell crafts or printables on Etsy
If you have any type of artistic skills Etsy can be an amazing way to earn extra cash. I have many friends who sell T-shirts, home décor, and baby items online. What many people don’t realize is that you can also sell digital printables on Etsy. If you have any type of graphic arts skill I highly recommend checking it out. Programs like GetStencil and PicMonkey mean you don’t need expensive graphics software to create some pretty amazing printables.
2. Virtual Assistant
Becoming a virtual assistant is a growing field that covers a lot of areas. If you have skills in word, excel or graphic arts programs you can become a virtual assistant. Many virtual assistants focus on social media, particularly Pinterest. I’ve hired people multiple times to help me with varies tasks related to this blog. If you become a specialist you can make very good money.
3. Social Media Support Staff/Manager
This job takes a bit more skill and you typically have to show a certain level of personal skill in social media. Many small companies need help with their social media platforms. Most don’t have the money to hire a full-time employee and just need someone to post, share and respond to questions a few hours a week. If you use social media extensively and love posting and sharing content this may be a great field to pursue. We recommend starting small. Contact a local small business, blogger or shop owner and offer to develop some of their content. If you have a flair for social media, you can make a decent amount of money in your spare time.Do you need extra cash fast?
4. Social Media Influencer
If you have skills in photography and can write captions that interest people you can potentially become a social media influencer. All you need is to develop a following on platforms like Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. A lot of ordinary people have discovered they have a knack for collecting followers. Once you have the followers it is relatively easy with sites like Izea to connect with brands to make money.
