If you’re a writer, then freelance writing might be for you. It can be difficult to break into this side hustle. If there aren’t any local jobs available, you may have to consider working from home and marketing yourself online.
There are plenty of sites that offer assignments for freelance writers. They usually pay around $25 per article depending on how long it is and the quality of your work. You should also check out Craigslist because there are often opportunities posted there as well!
If you have some spare time and don’t mind answering questions from people looking for help with their projects (even if they aren’t paid), then this could be an easy way to make some extra money!
The most obvious benefit to freelance consulting is that you can be your own boss — you have the freedom to work on your own schedule, from wherever you want. You’ll also learn more than ever when working with clients who come from different fields of expertise, so if you’re hoping to expand your skill set, this side hustle is for you.
However, there are some downsides. For example, it can be difficult to find clients who respect and value your time as much as they should; many people don’t understand how valuable consultants are and tend to take advantage of their services without paying accordingly (or at all).
Additionally, since it isn’t always clear what kind of services they need or how long a project will take them (and therefore how much money they should pay), there is no guarantee that those who engage in freelance consulting will receive any payment at all until after completing a job successfully — which can lead many potential consultants away from this type of work altogether.
Buy and Sell Domains
Buying and selling domains is a fun side hustle that can help you supplement your income.
Domain reselling allows you to make money by buying domains at a discount and then reselling them for more than what you paid for them. Since domain names can be bought and sold without any real effort, this is one of the easiest side hustles to start right away.
Here’s how it works: find popular domain names (with resale potential) on sites like GoDaddy or NameJet, buy them at auction or through private sale listings, then sell them back on GoDaddy or NameJet — or elsewhere if you don’t want to use those platforms.
You’ll have an opportunity to profit from the difference between what you paid for each domain name and what someone else is willing to pay for it when they buy it from you!

Online surveys are another great way to make money from home. They’re also a good option if you don’t have a lot of spare time and want to work on your own schedule. Online surveys are typically easy, fast, and can be done in just a few minutes.
You can make $5 or more for each survey you complete. Plus, there are many sites that offer sign-up bonuses — a reward for signing up with them — that range between $1 and $50! Some even offer cash prizes of up to $5,000 if you qualify for their grand prize sweepstakes.
Of course, some online survey sites require certain qualifications before they’ll accept your application. Most require an active Facebook profile or Twitter account (which is free), so start building those networks now if they don’t exist yet!
Proofreading is a great side hustle because it allows you to work from home, and the flexibility of this job means that you can do it on your own schedule.
As a proofreader, you will be checking text for errors in grammar and style. You may also need to check facts or figures, such as when you are working on a technical document or someone’s resume.
This job is relatively easy to learn and could lead to more opportunities within the company where you’ve gained experience.
A virtual assistant (VA), also called a personal assistant or executive assistant is an independent contractor that provides administrative support to clients.
The work can include but is not limited to:
Helping you run your business by handling tasks such as bookkeeping, running errands and shipping packages, scheduling appointments and travel plans, dealing with customer service issues, organizing staff schedules, and coordinating meetings.
Providing administrative support for personal needs such as helping you manage your calendar; filing paperwork; running errands; providing legal advice if needed; acting as your liaison with government agencies or other professionals who need access to your records on an ongoing basis.
You’ll need excellent organizational skills for this job so you can keep track of all the tasks going on on any given day. You’ll also need good communication skills so that you’re able to clearly convey information from one party to another (in other words: translating).
Bookkeeping is the process of recording transactions and financial data. It can be done manually, but most businesses opt for electronic bookkeeping systems that automatically keep track of all transactions.
Accounting is a subset of bookkeeping that involves using numbers to determine a company’s financial standing and analyze its performance. The two terms are often used interchangeably, though accounting may also involve interpreting data with more focus on how it affects the business overall than simply recording transactions.
Financial accounting focuses on measuring a company’s performance based on criteria like identifying assets and liabilities and tracking income earned through sales or other means (e.g., interest).
Financial accountants use bookkeeping records as input data for their analyses; they are not responsible for taking care of day-to-day record-keeping activities within an organization’s environment — these fall under the purview of another department known as “accounts payable/receivable” or A/R (which handles payables) — though they may be involved in making sure everything else is being done correctly as well as creating reports based off those records (which would make them both an accountant AND an auditor).
Transfer Postmates Orders
Transfer Postmates orders is a side hustle that requires you to transfer packages for delivery. The process of transferring Postmates orders is simple, as you simply need to move the package from one courier to another within the designated area by following instructions given on your screen.
You earn an average of $10 per hour for this job and up to $20 per hour in peak demand times like lunch or dinner hours (or even earlier).
The requirements to transfer Postmates orders include having access to a computer with a WiFi connection and the internet while using Google Chrome web browser.
You also need an Android device with an iOS 9 or higher operating system running on it, along with a printer linked via USB cable (make sure not to use Bluetooth). In addition, you must be at least 18 years old or older when applying for this side hustle!
Affiliate marketing is one of the most popular ways to make money online. It’s also a great side hustle because you don’t need any technical skills, and it doesn’t take much time to get started.
How does affiliate marketing work?
In short, affiliate marketers get paid commissions when they refer people to a specific product or service. The company that offers the product or service pays the affiliate marketer a commission for each sale made by those customers.
For example, if you promote a fitness course and sell it to a customer for $100, the company that offers the course pays you $20. Easy enough!
You can use affiliate marketing to promote just about anything, from fitness products like Beachbody’s P90X® or 21 Day Fix® to books like Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
When a visitor clicks on your affiliate link, they go to another site that sells something. If they purchase the product or service after visiting that site, you earn a commission for referring them there!

Blogging for Money
Blogging is a great side hustle to replace your day job income because it can be done on your own time, so you don’t need to find a babysitter or go through the hassle of scheduling appointments.
It’s also pretty easy to set up — all you need is a website and some writing skills! If you’re worried about not having enough content ideas, check out this post for beginner bloggers with plenty of resources for getting started.
Once your blog is up and running (and hopefully making money), there are two main ways that people make money from their sites: affiliate marketing and native advertising. Both strategies involve aligning yourself with other companies who want their products promoted on your site, but they vary in how much control over the content of your posts each gives you.
With affiliate marketing, it’s completely up to you which products or services get featured on your site — if something interests or excites you enough, then it makes sense for readers too! There are lots of different platforms where sellers can pay bloggers based on how many clicks their links receive (like Amazon Associates).
The downside here is that there isn’t always guaranteed payment; sometimes websites will send less than promised because there were fewer clicks than expected or because more people than anticipated clicked through those links instead!
With native advertising models like Google AdSense (which has been around since 2003) and Facebook Ads Manager (launched in 2011), publishers get paid by showing ads from advertisers alongside their own content without needing any approval beforehand — which means it’s harder work but also potentially more lucrative if done correctly!
