With the world in crisis and more people than ever are stuck at home without jobs, there has never been a better time to pick up a side-hustle. A side hustle is something that you can devote whatever spare time you have to whilst earning money at the same time. Ideally, they are scalable.
A scalable side hustle is one that will grow as much or as little as you want it to. The more you put in, the more reward. These types of jobs are perfect to grow alongside a regular job. They can also grow to the point where you might be able to do them full time. Lots of people do this, and now is the perfect time to get started.
Most side hustles can be started with very little initial capital and simply require you to devote some time to your education. Here is some inspiration.
This is a simple one to start that can be very profitable. Using websites like exiap.com allows you to get the best possible currency rates – you can purchase chunks of foreign currency, whilst keeping an eye on their values and then trading them back when they are worth more than you paid for them. This method does require a little bit of investment but requires very little knowledge and can be learned with a few simple videos.
If you have a computer, and you have the internet, you can write content. Every website on the internet has content that has been written by somebody. There are billions upon billions of websites currently live on the internet, which means that there is a gold mine of potential for writers. There are also hundreds of videos and courses that teach you the basics, and with the help of software like Grammarly and SEOsurfer, which help you write without error, it is relatively easy to get started.
Social Media Campaigns
Every day billions of users log in to their social media accounts, making it one of the most lucrative advertisement platforms that have ever existed. Just as billboards and TV ads have targeted customers for decades, the future is in social media. If you are a whizz with Facebook or know your way around Instagram, there is a market for your talent. Older users who do not have a great grasp over social media will pay for you to run their business’s social media campaigns. Often this is as easy as posting 3-4 times a week at the same time.
These are just the tip of the iceberg. Making money online has never been easier. If you are willing to spend a few hours watching YouTube videos for education and have the drive and motivation to succeed, now is the time.
Are you dreading going back to work after this crisis? Loving staying at home and eating ice cream In your sweatpants? Enjoying waking up at noon and going to bed in the early hours of the morning? Start your own business and enjoy the benefits of being your own boss.
