Become a handyman

If you have your own tools and know-how to repair most things around the house, you could easily earn some extra money with a side hustle doing odd jobs whenever you’re not working too. You can find plenty of people needing work done online, or you could sub-contract as a laborer for local builders, carpenters, plumbers, or start a lawn care business. That said, if you know your way around an engine bay more than a building site, you can always sell mechanic services in your spare time.

Share your car

Ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft have become increasingly popular over the last few years. All you need to become a driver is to pass a background check, have a clean driving history, and an eligible car in pretty decent condition. While driving people around town is a really easy way to earn that extra cash, customer service is very important to become successful to become highly rated. And don’t forget to factor in the costs of fuel and maintenance when working out your net profits.

Start blogging

In order to make money from blogging, you just need a website to share your expertise or thoughts on subjects like food, travel, fashion, news, or gossip. By updating it regularly with quality content, you’ll be able to increase your traffic and expand your readership. Then you simply monetize your blog with advertising, affiliate marketing, or creating online courses sell eBooks on your own website.

Rent out your home

An easy way to make money from home which doesn’t require any skill or set up costs is renting out a room via companies like Airbnb. This is an even better idea if part of your home is already set up with a private entry to a downstairs area or a granny flat. If you’re frequently out of town on business or traveling overseas, you could also rent out your entire home so you can earn cash every time you’re away.

Buy and flip stuff

Flipping items online is one of the easiest and quickest ways to make extra money. While some people start out selling things they no longer use, the best way is to get straight into flipping other people’s stuff. Spend your spare time searching all the local online marketplaces for good deals on clothing, gadgets, furniture, collectibles, accessories. Then you simply buy them cheap and flip them to someone for a quick profit. Obviously the more you know about the items you’re flipping and the amount of capital you have will both influence your success.

Create an app

If you think you have a pretty good idea for a new app, you don’t need to become a software developer or engineer to create it. You can find people with the right technical skills online who you can design and create an app for you and bring it to life. Then as soon as your app is available for download, you can start sharing it on social media to get some traction, before making money from in-app advertisements or a premium version. If it becomes a hit, you might end up making a tidy sum by selling the rights to a software company.

Freelance writing

As a freelance writer, you’ll get paid to produce high-quality content for their online websites or print publications. Businesses may hire freelance copywriters to create a wide variety of content, from advertising campaigns and marketing material to blog posts and webpages. Paying freelance writers to create all of this content on an as-required basis is often a much lower-priced alternative for these companies than it would be to hire full-time writing staff.

You got this

Whether you’re trying to boost your monthly income, or you desperately want to get yourself out of debt, any one of the side hustles is a great place to start. No matter how much spare time you have, or what your skills are, you too can make extra money on the side.
