Launching a startup and tight on cash? It’s never a bad idea to have several income streams, especially when you’re in the midst of getting your business off the ground.
If you’re trying to add a little extra money to your monthly income on top of your full time gig—check out these awesome side hustles.
Creative? Sell your skills.
Are you good at writing, drawing, digital design, or some other creative field? Check out websites like Fiverr and Upwork where you can sell your creative skills. Likewise, you can teach your creativity to others through online courses via platforms like Thinkific and Teachable.
Social media has its pros and cons. But, one of the greatest pros is there is a lot of ad money to be made. For example, on Youtube, ad revenue can be made once you have a following on your videos.
Another way you can start a side hustle on social media is by running Instagram or Tiktok for other businesses. Nowadays, businesses need a social presence, so ask around to see if any businesses that you know need some extra help. Tapping into your marketing skills could help bring in a nice chunk of change each month.
Are you well-trained in a specific field? Get paid to be a consultant. Check out websites like Clarity to register as an expert. You could get paid up to $10 a minute for your advice on startups and launching a business.
There are so many options if you would like to start a side hustle. Do your research and pick something this will be fun and flexible for you.
