Side Hustles Online For Extra Income — When Working a 9 to 5

The whole reason for a Side Hustles Online is to make some extra money.

A Side Hustles Online isn’t to give you more work to do, if you wanted that you would just do more hours at your current job.

A side hustle is meant to be a stepping stone.

To be able to earn an extra income to be able to invest or use for something bigger and better.

Lets be honest — nobody wants to go to work, its just something we have to do to be able to afford nice thigs that make our life better.

So having a side hustle to help towards that goal is a huge advantage.

Both my Mum and Dad were hard working people who worked right up to retirement. I’m not being lazy — far from it. But I don’t want to do that, Its not a life I want to live.

If there is a slight chance I can work the hours I want to earn the income I need to get by.

That’s me set — and enjoy my time whiles I’m here.

The idea of having set hours I need to go to work is really not for me. Having to turn up and be in a certain place for 8 hours a day, like a temporary caged animal.

Ok a little extreme — but you get my point.😀

One of the side hustles I started when I first entered the world of online was using eBay.
I know so many people who do this now and make some pretty good money.
You don’t need products, you don’t even need any money.

This is what I did….

It was around Christmas time, so I assume this was a part of why it was so successful.

What I did was find products on other websites that couldn’t be found on eBay. Then give them a mark up of say 20% or more and list them on eBay.

I was able to copy and paste all the information including the photos from the website.

It started off with “cards against humanity” it’s a card game for family’s.

This was on eBay — but sold out.

I found it on amazon where they gave you next day delivery — that’s how easy it was.

Then I moved onto BBQs. They sold well around Christmas time too.

It’s a simple and easy method to start to make some extra income. Risk free too.

If it doesn’t sell on eBay — don’t buy it from another website.

More Side Hustles

When looking into ideas I fond some others too that could be a better fit for you.

Did you know there’s a merch on demand part to amazon.

All you need to do is upload your design and amazon will do all the printing and shipping of the product, straight to the customer.

With all the free images online you can create all types of designs around and subject — the options are endless.

You can create you designs on canva.com, then send them straight to your amazon shop.

Another option you could do is reach out to influencers and create merch for them. This would be something as simple as a had with their name on.

Fanjoy.co did this and scaled the business into a multi million pound business.

You could do this using a website called Printful.com, they offer you cups, hats hoody’s and so much more.

Side Hustles Online With Google

Another great option was with the biggest search engine in the world Google.

Google makes most of its money through ads. This shows that so many people are using them, then they also give you $400 for free to run ads.
This is because so many people run ads wrong and give up with them.

Google however offer FREE training, with a whole library of skills and courses you can learn for free.

Then once you learn how to run ads, you can provide that service on fiver.com or upwork.com.

There is always a need for someone who knows what they are doing. If you can create and run an ad for a business. They will be more than happy to pay you for it.

People are getting paid around $200 an hour with google ads.

So all you would need to do is work 1 hr. a day for an extra $100.

Affiliate Marketing

In the internet there are a lot of websites that let you sign up for free and make money promoting their products.

The one I used to use was clickbank.com. They have a whole catalog of products.

This was when I was brand new to the affiliate marketing game and promoted weight loss products, I haven’t even got a weight problem.

I promoted chicken coop designs — this was a good one because I used it to make a chicken coop for my dad and his chickens too.

It made some money, but because I was all over the place, I never really made the gig pay well.

But it’s a good option to check out if your starting from zero.

Writing Blogs

Another thing I started to do and still do to this day is blogging.

This is where you create a simple website with bluehost.com and create articles on subjects.

If you write about weight loss for example you can have affiliate links in that blog to products on click bank.

That way you don’t have to store any products and you can still make a commission years down the line.

The more articles you create the higher google will rank you in the search engine, so over time your blog will grow and become more popular.

That where I dived deep into Affiliate marketing.
I see it as a great option to earn money online however to decide to build a brand.

If you check out the This Book you will be able to get a copy of a free book that will show you just what affiliate marketing is.

Than how you can get started with making some money online.
Until next time
