While we all have some extra time, it often doesn’t feel like it. But it also doesn’t take too much effort to make some extra dough on the side. We’re not talking about millions upon millions here — we’re mostly talking about doing small, bite-sized projects to generate some fast cash.
1. Create online courses.
Take whatever skill you have and find a way to build a course around it. Use sites like Udemy, Ankur Nagpal’s, Teachable or Jonathan Cronstedt’s Kajabi to build those courses then begin marketing.
2. Affiliate marketing
You can find affiliate marketing offers on sites like ClickBank, CJ.com and Rakuten LinkShare, amongst many others. Search for the right offer and ensure that you present it to the right audience and don’t spam people about it. Do your marketing ethically.
3. Create webinars
Webinars follow a specific template and format. They’re formulaic. If you can master that formula, you can quite literally dominate in this space. Find a great business idea or opportunity that you can sell that delivers massive amounts of value.
4. Build a side hustle business
While you could launch a regular business selling someone else’s products, you could also invent your own product. While businesses based on inventions might seem more complex to create, they do present attractive investment opportunities as depicted on popular shows like Shark Tank.
5. Start a blog
Blogs are quite possibly one of the best ways to earn a passive income, even while traveling the world. While starting a blog might be simple you will need to put in the work and the effort in order to reap the benefits. Plant the seeds now to enjoy the harvest later.
6. Launch an ecommerce site
While Amazon takes the lion’s share, consumers are buying by the droves when they can scoop up great offers. In fact, some of the leading online marketers like Neil Patel, Frank Kern, Dean Graziosi, David Sharpe, John Reese and many others, are using free-plus-shipping ecommerce and book funnels to make small fortunes.
7. Online tutoring
Websites like Skooli, Tutor Me and Tutor.com provide resources for entering into the online tutoring space. While you don’t need to use a platform like these, they provide a lower friction entry point into the market. You could also search for online tutoring gigs on a variety of other sites like Upwork, Freelancer and many more.
8. Trade cryptocurrency
While cryptocurrency is still relatively new, it will ultimately become the standard. Bitcoin and Etherium might be the primary cryptocurrency platforms today, but the US Dollar will eventually become the Digital Dollar by leveraging the blockchain. You can take advantage of the current boom in cryptocurrency by trading it through platforms like eToro and Kraken, amongst many others.
