Having a side gig outside of your full-time job is one of the best ways to increase your cash flow or pay off debt. It could even be the beginning of something that could change your life forever. For some lockdown entrepreneurs, those side hustles have now become their day job and main source of income.
Below are 5 side hustles to make extra cash in 2023, which one will you try?
You don’t need to be a creative genius to sell on ETSY, in fact most people don’t know that ETSY is one of the best platforms to create passive income, and one of the best ways to do that is by selling digital products. One of the main reasons is that you can automate the delivery of digital products.
All you need to do is to create a digital product such as personal planner templates, calendars, ebooks, wedding invitations, or resume templates, upload them, sit back and watch your side hustle grow.
I know this sounds so crazy, but it’s 100% legit, and people are making some serious cash doing it. There
are freelancers making $10K, $20K, and $50K a month on Fiverr doing voice-overs, and all you need is a good microphone.
It takes about 20 minutes to set up a new gig on fiver. Search for voice-over gigs and get inspired.
On Fiverr you can make money offering services such a graphic design, writing, animation and even translating.
YouTube is not going anywhere, and its certainly not slowing down; in fact, year after year, more and more people are using YouTube as a search engine.
Don’t want to show your face on YouTube? No problem. Faceless YouTube channels are growing very fast, and people are making thousands each month through ASMR, meditations, music and more.
Once you reach a certain amount of views, YouTube will start paying you. This kind of YouTube channel is awesome because you don’t even need to maintain it and the more views you get over time, the more you get paid.
italki is a global language learning community that brings people together for one-on-one online language lessons, and most people on the platform are just looking for conversation. That’s right, essentially people will pay you to have conversations with them. This is not passive income but could turn into a lucrative business in your spare time.
We’ve all heard this one before, but before you roll your eyes and scroll past, hear me out, creating an online course doesn’t have to be a huge investment of time, energy, and money. If you have something to teach you can have someone create a whole course for you on a website like Upwork.
Search for course creators, hire someone to create the whole course for you, and upload it on
a platform like Thinkific. You could be making money for years to come without having to do anything.
