1. Start a Blog
If you landed here, welcome to our blog! A blog is not overwhelming to start and the income potential is limitless. We took our blog from making $0 a month to over $10,000 in just over a year. All you need to start a blog is a passion and a couple dollars a month for web hosting. Seriously, that is what it comes down to.
Simply decide what you are passionate about, create some awesome content to share, drive traffic, and monetize. You won’t become an overnight success but with some hard work, your income is unlimited.
Unsure of where to start? Kelan created a step-by-step blog tutorial on how to get started with your own blog. If it’s something you have ever been interested in now is your chance to get started. Head over to our Facebook group Blogging with Purpose to network and learn from others making full-time incomes from their blogs.
2. Start a Lead Generation Business with Facebook Ads
Businesses owners need people who can run their Facebook ad campaigns and bring them, new customers. They are always looking for ways to increase their sales and bottom line.
So they look for people like YOU to hire and perform this service for them. Don’t have any experience in this field, no worries!
Our good friend Bobby Hoyt created an incredible course Facebook Side Hustle to teach you everything you need to know to open up your own lead generation business. Some of his students started with zero experience and have already started making $5,000+ per month.
This is just one service of many that you can perform for local businesses. Other services include SEO, content creation, website maintenance, social media management, and email marketing. If you have a knack for marketing your options are literally endless when it comes to making money on Facebook.
3. Teach English Online for $14-$22 an Hour
If you have any history of working with children then this is the side hustle for you! Getting paid between $14-$22 an hour for a side hustle is better than some full-time jobs. Teaching students in China is easier than you think. Using a reputable company like VIPKID, they will give you all the necessary preparations to teach students English.
All you need to start this side hustle is a few things; a computer, internet, bachelors degree, and experience working with children. If you have all of these things, you are ready to apply.
Head over to our full in-depth VIPKID review to learn more about the hiring process and what to expect once you are hired.
4. Start Freelance Work
You can find work in a lot of niche areas that you will be able to use your skills and expertise with working freelance. It could be as simple as writing articles or if you are into social media, you could get paid to manage social media accounts. Whatever someone might have difficulty with or not enough time to complete is where you would come in.
People pay you to have work done for them. Some people have deep pockets when it comes to freelance work because they just do not have enough time and want to pay some else to do the work. You can check out the websites below to start browsing at some of the work that is offered to freelance workers.
5. Open a Shopify Store
Having your own e-commerce store is so much fun to run and get excited about. You do not have to be worried about using an overwhelming platform that is going to take a long time to learn.
Shopify has a super easy to use interface and has excellent customer service.
Our first month of opening our Shop we made over $1,500! This was made possible by taking the course Million Dollar Shop and learning all the important things about running a successful shop.
Again, whatever you are passionate about will help you to decide what type of store you want to run. You can create a store for pretty much anything such as dog toys, printables, jewelry, clothing, video games, custom apparel, appliances, camping, etc. The possibilities are endless.
6. Start Selling on eBay and Amazon
Finding thrift store or flea market buys for killer prices is not just totally feasible but definitely a fun way to make money!
This shopping-driven side hustle is as simple as buying a good, quality item for a great price, relisting it online, and making a nice profit once it sells!
Things like antiques, uncommon goods, and even just assorted dish items can all be in high demand in the online marketplace! You can sell your items online through a site like eBay or Amazon, or you could even get started selling through Craigslist to keep start-up costs down.
You can test some of these side hustles out before leaving your 9 to 5 to see what you might be able to carry on as a full-time job. They are all inexpensive or free to try out, so why wouldn’t you?
Before Kelan left his office management job, he started our blog and picked up some freelance digital marketing work.
Then, he applied for VIPKID and got hired at $22 per hour. He absolutely LOVED working for them, but his time was limited.
He also took the Facebook Side Hustle Course and landed a landscaping business owner as a client within a month.
Now, our sole focus is continuing to grow our blogging income.
