Don’t we all love the idea of being able to create some extra money outside of our 9-5 job? Or be able to swap our full-time job for a few side hustles. If that’s you, I have a list of legit ways how you can make money fast without much effort. Some ideas you might not have even considered doing!
1. Get paid to use Pinterest
This might sound strange but you can actually pin products and sell on Pinterest through affiliate marketing without a website. Once you join an affiliate program, you can start promoting its products on Pinterest. Pinterest is a platform where people are ready to buy, so you can make money by spending a few minutes pinning everyday.
Here’s a full tutorial on how to create a pin and make money on Pinterest>>
2. Write and earn
Starting a career as a full-time writer can be a great side hustle. But if you are looking for a quicker option, there are sites that pay you per article. This is an easy way to earn a few hundred dollars. You send an article and when it gets accepted you get paid for it, usually via Paypal. Pay can range from $50-$250 per article.
Here is a full list of sites that are accepting>>
Here are some of the things you can sell for instant cash.
Books – Bookscouter
5. Take photos
6. Start a blog
This is my number one favorite money making idea. There are bloggers making a few hundred to six figures a month. Blogging can work as a full-time hustle or a part-time gig that you can do in your spare time. If you would like to start a blog, you can start one today with as little as $4/month.
7. High paying surveys
I must admit there are a lot of time-consuming surveys out there that are not worth your time. My favorite and highly rated survey site is Survey Junkie. It is also one of the only survey sites that made me a quick $20 for a few minutes of my time. I have also selected a handful of other survey sites that I recommend right here.
8. Buy for $10 sell for $100
This family sells thrift store products on eBay for a bigger price margin and makes more than a full-time income. Once you learn how it works you can boost your income by doing this.
9. Sell a service
If you have a skill to share, why not try Fiverr to make money from it. You list your service – like graphic designing, logo making or any short freelance work, and get paid once you complete your task.
10. Open an Etsy store
This is suitable for anyone that has an interest in crafts. Use your talent to sell your work on Etsy. This is a large online marketplace where anything from handicrafts, vintage goods, jewelry, and printables are sold. A lot of people use Etsy these days to shop for unique gifts. You can start building an income using this side hustle.
There are a lot of ways you can work as a freelancer, from photography, writing and virtual assisting. As a freelancer, you can set your own rates, work your own hours and make money once you complete your job. Freelancers are in-demand as most businesses prefer to outsource some of their daily tasks to freelancers so they can concentrate on other aspects of their business.
12. Write an ebook
This might come as a surprise, but I wrote my first ebook and made an instant $200 the first week I launched it! I used Canva to write my ebook -which was free to use and used Sendowl to take care of customers payment and transactions. I just added my payment details and every time someone made a purchase I made money instantly. If you need help and advice with this side hustle, I’ll be happy to guide you:)
