I’m sure we’ve all tried to start our own side hustle to earn some extra cash. With the current recession we’re going through it’s only right that we’re making the right moves towards a healthier bank account.
Other than a whole other part-time job on top of your full-time 9-5, there are many side hustles that you can start from home that can pay big in the future.
Let’s go through some of them now.
SEO is a timeless profession, and can mean a lot of things. Whether you’re helping with the technical health of a client’ site, to running keyword research and building PR links, SEO is a very lucrative profession, of which you can start relatively small.
If you’ve secured yourself at least one go-to client, you can expect a few hundred to thousands for your troubles. And as SEO is an ongoing process, you can charge this monthly, too.
Do you love writing a good blog? Maybe you just have a knack for exceptional grammar and love putting things together.
Copywriting might just be the side hustle for you. You can do it from anywhere, and charge per hundred words or per hour, depending on your experience, which you can gain on apps such as fiverr.
With a few years of copywriting gigs, you can easily charge a pretty penny per hour of your time, so long as you build a portfolio and track record of your work first.
Web design is one of the most lucrative hustles on the list. Think about it, every day there are new people trying to start new websites.
It’s even easier than you may think, as you don’t even need to be a developer to make it happen. Nowadays you can just use templates and set a site live within 24 hours.
If you have a keen eye for design and feel you can provide this as a service, give it a go. You can earn anything from a few hundred to tens of thousands with the right client.
Social media management
Nearly every new company starting up is building some sort of social media presence. You’d be surprised how little people know about the technology that’s all around us nowadays.
With these new profiles comes the demand for the management of social media, which the demand is only rising. Social media management is beyond just posting and replying to comments, you can run paid ads for them, and truly build a brand voice in your spare time – If that’s your bag.
Expect anything from hundreds to thousands a month for such a service, again, charged monthly as a repeat service.
Voice over acting
Do you have a decent mic at home? If so, you can easily become a part-time voice over for some extra cash. It’s a great way to get into showbiz without actually having to show your face.
And it pays well. Bear in mind that you may have to gather some experience from freelance sites before you can approach voice over agencies for more regular work, but it’s well worth the effort.
The demand for logos will always be around, with new companies starting and dying every day. Not only businesses, but artists, social media pages, blogs, YouTubers, and all walks of life can benefit from a logo designer.
If you’re naturally artistic, this is a great side hustle to start with, and can easily become a very lucrative one. Anything from hundreds to hundreds of thousands can potentially be earned per project, depending on the client.
If you have an eye for aesthetics, you can easily make money from taking pics. It could start as an initial hobby then skyrocket into product photography, or even street photography, and will always be in demand.
There’s nothing like a good photoshoot, and if this is somewhat of a passion of yours, it can easily become an asset for you. You can expect anything from fifty quid to hundreds per shoot, as your experience goes up.
You don’t even have to own a business to need a bookkeeper. Individuals, 9-5ers, and some busy parents could benefit from one. Not everyone gets their stuff done on Quickbooks.
Accounting will always be in demand, and bookkeeping a noble profession. You can make a respectable living with the right client, a truly lucrative side hustle.
Bloggers love talking about topics they’re passionate about, and it’s not only because of their raw love for these things. Blogging can actually prove to be a very lucrative side hustle if you do it right.
From affiliate marketing collaborations to placing ads on your blog, you can make a pretty steady income if you’re in the right niche. Starting out, with enough dedication and traffic you can build yourself up to earn a couple hundred extra a month.
On the higher end of the spectrum, the best blogs make hundreds of thousands to millions a year. Not too bad…
