In this pandemic situation that has taken its toll around the world, who wouldn’t like to earn a few extra bucks on the side, right? And when we are all sitting indoors and are left with not many options, earning online is the only best option we have.
Whether you are saving money to pay off a debt, perform a wedding or go on a world tour with your better half, a few extra $1000 every month is just the amount you need to make your lifelong dreams come true. While your day job might contribute to paying off your essentials, freelance or side hustle can help you fill up your wallet with enough to take that leap you always wanted to make.
Now, it might sound challenging, but trust me, it’s not. It’s just something that you’re going to do when you’ve time on your clock and in fact, I know some people who have left their jobs just because they grew so much with their side hustle that it became their primary source of income. Are you interested in doing the very same? Guess what! There’s no investment involved. It all depends on how quickly you learn a new skill & how effectively you adopt. Here are four side hustles to look forward to this year.
If there’s one way you can make good money in less time, it’s by adopting the art of freelance copywriting. Copywriting is basically the art of converting the desired audience type through a sales copy page or a web copy page, convincing them that your business is the best there is in the market.
A good copywriter is one who can add value to your client’s life and convince them to purchase.
There are several ways he can create powerful hooks to convert the audience. There are hardline facts, statistical analysis, emotional story-telling, compelling business pitches, promises and discounts.
It’s up to you what type of copywriter you want to become and what your client product is all about.
Most copywriters often undercharge and it’s one of the reasons why they easily burn out too soon. If you’re planning to become a freelance copywriter, my advice to you is that you do a couple of gigs at a low pay rate, and once you have seen the success ratio of one of your copies, take the statistics from the client and use them to market your service at a better price. You can easily land a sales copy, web copy, or an email copy for an easy $500 – $1000. Just two of these jobs will be more than enough.
Amazon Affiliate Marketing
Don’t have the creativity to create a website or sales copy, yet you want to earn $1000 easily, if you can invest in creating a review website, then affiliate marketing is your way in. All you have to do is select a niche, perform research on the products that are trending and selling hot in your niche, and then add these product affiliate links to your website. If you can’t afford to review these products on your own, then hire a professional writer who charges a minimal cost to write good reviews for you.
You can easily find these writers in abundance on platforms like Fiverr, Upwork or Freelancer.
Employ them, ask them to write a review article for you and publish it on your website.
Now here’s the tricky part, there are several eCommerce stores that are selling the exact product through Amazon, which you’re and the affiliate percentage which you will get on these products will be significantly low. So my advice to you is that you search up some tech giants who are offering good affiliate profit rather than settle for eCommerce stores online. To give you an example, if you become an affiliate partner of a good tech company, you can easily make $1,500 – $2,000 a month.
Start a Side Gig for Extra Earns
The pandemic is pretty harsh on almost each and every one of us. One of the saddest bits is that there is a financial emergency going on around different corporate sectors of the world. As a result, many individuals are facing salary cut downs. At times as such, where we have debts, rents and bills to pay, what is the best option we are left with to pay off ourselves? The answer lies in freelance gigs.
Have you heard about the freelancing websites such as Fiverr, Freelancer or Upwork?
They are some exciting platforms that can help you earn that few extra bucks on the side even when the pandemic is on the rise. Yes, you heard me right. Just create a profile on all three of these platforms and if you’ve got a skill, make the best use of it. There are several online jobs available on these platforms and your talent is good enough to speak for itself. Do the jobs, create a portfolio, get better ratings and reviews from clients and before you know it, you will quickly be making $1000 – $2000.
Whatever you do, make sure that you get positive ratings. It’s the only way clients will trust you.
Become Instagram Influencer
Can you sing, or can you act or do you look good, there’s no better time than now to cash on that. Become an Instagram Influencer amid the pandemic and let the world observe your talent. Once you’ve gained a significant amount of followers, there are plenty of ways how you can earn bucks.
Don’t feel like the kind of person who enjoys being the spotlight, and it’s totally fine.
Instagram is a diverse platform. You can use photography or your pet as the spotlight and create a powerful profile with a great number of followers. Once you’ve gathered enough followers, the next thing is to find the right way to monetize your profile. It’s not that good of a hustle like the rest unless you have at least 100k followers, but you can easily make $500 – $1000 a month once on the roll.
In a Nutshell
There’s no single way of earning when it comes to the online market. While I have discussed a few handfuls of such talents, I am sure there are countless many that once you start exploring, you will easily find them. The Internet is full of opportunities, and people like you and I are already cashing upon it. When we are purchasing stuff online, aren’t we capable of redeeming it back? It’s just the mindset that stops us. Imagine there are thousands of businesses that are specifically focusing on the above-discussed ways and have established themselves as a successful brand.
If they can, so can you. Until next time 🙂
