Side hustles are one of the best ways to increase your income so you can pay off debt, save up for a big purchase, grow your retirement savings, or reduce your financial stress. No matter what’s driving your need to find a side hustle, I’ve got 8 of the best side hustle ideas for 2020.
1. Start a blog
If you’re interested in starting a blog, a WordPress blog hosted through Bluehost ($2.95 per month) is the way to go for new bloggers, and if you’re feeling like the setup and installation is a little too overwhelming, check out Launch That Blog. It’s completely free when you go with Bluehost, and you’ll get a free domain name and a ton of bonus freebies from me.
2. Proofread for a living
If you cringe when someone uses the wrong verb tense or can’t tell the difference between their/there/they’re, proofreading might be one of the best side hustles for you to try. Proofreaders are responsible for polishing written content for bloggers, content writers, website owners, and more.
3. Become a Pinterest virtual assistant
You’re probably already familiar with Pinterest – it’s a great place to find recipes, workouts, DIYs, etc. But, did you know that online business owners and bloggers have a high need for Pinterest virtual assistants? This is one of the best side hustles of 2020 because Pinterest VAs make an average of $500 per month/per client doing things like: Creating pins, Optimizing images, Developing a Pinning schedule and Doing keyword research
4. Sell things on eBay
I have a reader who made nearly $85,000 in one year from selling things on eBay. That’s wild. Now, there are no guarantees on the amount you’ll make, but this is one of the side hustle ideas that’s insanely easy to start because you can literally start selling what’s sitting around your house.
5. Walk dogs or pet sit
This is exactly what can happen with sites like Rover – an online platform that is dedicated to connecting pet owners with dog walkers and pet sitters in their area. This goes unsaid, but you have to love pets for this side hustle.
6. Sell on Shopify
Shopify is an easy to use platform for setting up and running your own eCommerce store. And if you’re thinking that it sounds like a lot of work running an online shop, it can be surprisingly passive if you use Shopify for dropshipping.
7. Rent out your car
If you like the idea of Airbnb (renting out a room or your entire house to make some extra income) Turo is like that, but for cars. Turo is an online platform where you can list your car, the dates it’s available, and then rent it out to prescreened customers. Don’t worry, Turo also offers up to $1 million in liability insurance and coverage in the event of theft or physical damage.
8. Complete tasks on TaskRabbit
For a low commitment side hustle, as in one that you can pick up and earn through whenever, doing one-off jobs with TaskRabbit is a great way to make extra money in 2020. Here’s the gist of it… you use TaskRabbit to find individual tasks/jobs that people have listed. It can be moving furniture for $75, mounting a TV for $30, or cleaning a house for $60.
