Make money from home with these Side Hustles

People are always looking for ways to improve their financial situation. An extra source of income can help you build an emergency fund, create capital to start a business and pay off your loans.

There are plenty of options to choose from while looking for a side hustle. There are some that you can manage online or even offline to keep your finances flowing from all sides. While selecting a side hustle job ensure it’s something you’re passionate about. I would not add an annoying task to a 9-5 job. That can be overly draining and you may find yourself unable to keep up with that kind of pressure, and end up dropping it.

Below I have created a list of side hustles that you can do at home or during the weekend or even as a full time job.

1. Sell products online

Selling products is among the easiest side hustles you can start. It requires lower capital as compared a physical shop. This is because you will have your products with you at home and you will not be paying (additional) rent, and you don’t require a big stock for display or something. As a result, chances of risk are lower and good profit is incurred. You can create a Facebook or Instagram shop or just promote your products on you social media pages and there you have your business booming with just a few steps.

2. Affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing involves promoting online retailers’ products and getting paid per referrals. To make money through affiliate marketing you require to have a high traffic to increase on the number of sales since sometimes you only earn a small percentage per product bought. All you need to do is place the referral link on your website and make sure the products you are promoting are related to your content, such that your audience becomes your potential customers.

3. Rent out extra space.

If you have extra space to rent out in your land or your house you can do so and create yourself a passive source of income. All around the globe, people are moving and looking for places to settle whenever they visit particular locations. You can rent a part of your house. For instance, if your children are all grown and have built their own house and you are left with a lot of unutilized space, you have a chance to make money out of it.

4. Teaching English online.

With a bachelor’s degree and a reliable internet connection you could make up a fulltime job teaching English online or as a side hustle. Some sites require you to have just a good command of grammar, such that if you pass their tests you are qualified to teach through their online platforms.

Some of the company that offer such jobs include Magic Ears, Englishunt, TutorABC, VIPKID and many more you will find across the internet. English is a popular and professional language used in most countries around the world. Almost everyone wants to have some knowledge in English is willing to pay well to acquire the skill. 

5. Become a Virtual Assistant or Social Media Manager.

If you are great with social media algorithms and have knowledge on increasing engagement on various platforms, you can just start your side hustle as a Virtual assistant, social media manager, a consultant or even all of them. You can manage both business and personal accounts and create and schedule content, carry out admin tasks managing emails and customer service, or just auditing accounts and advising the owner on the strategies to apply. If you desire to do this kind of a job and lack the skills, you can just apply for an online class on Udemy and the likes.

6. Freelancing

Freelancing is a sort of independent profession where you can work remotely and get paid after a project is completed. It can be challenging initially, but once you sharpen your skills and get good reviews, you can make a very good amount of money. If you need proof, visit Fiverr and search a skill and see for yourself. There are all kind of skills including copy writing, translating, logo designing, video editing, programming, creating websites and many more. Some other platforms where you can create an account include Upwork, QA world and Freelancer.

7. Running AdSense

For you to make money from ads, you require an active website, an app or a YouTube channel. So, you first step will be creating one, if you don’t own one, then create content to generate traffic enough to earn you money. After that you can visit various platforms to apply for ads.

Good luck securing one.
