Is there a way to earn a buck without too much investment (or any at all) or hassle? Yes, thanks to the internet. Here are a few ways to earn money and grow fast.
The pandemic has made it necessary for a lot of us to stay at home and rethink our cash flow. The world is changing, as is the job market as we know it. What we considered a steady, “secure“ job, as of 2020 is anything but. Fortunately, the internet has given us a plethora of options. After some research, we’ve decided to give you a rundown on a few of the jobs that can help you earn money quickly as a side-hustle, but also turn into a successful full-time thing.
Selling Your Photos Online
Whether you’re a pro at taking photos or see photography as a hobby, why not earn extra cash from it? Selling your work online is a good way to earn money on the side. Websites like Shutterstock deal in photos and even videos for a good amount of money, and you can film these by yourself, without fancy equipment! Also, you can join communities like Burst (site: https://burst.shopify.com/become-a-contributor) or Foap (site: https://www.foap.com/photographer).
Teaching a Course/Tutoring
If you have accumulated knowledge about something and think you can share it with others, why not teach a course? It sounds scarier than it really is, we promise. Many people teach different courses on websites like Skillshare (site: https://www.skillshare.com/teach) or Udemy (site: https://www.udemy.com/), and they range from specialized courses on design, for example, to even courses on how to study for an exam. The options are endless, and it’s up to you to see what you can offer to the world.
Another kind of teaching is, of course, tutoring. It can be any subject you’re specializing in (mathematics, physics, Spanish, English lessons, you name it) and can provide a great side income. Also, thanks to technology, you don’t have to leave home for one-on-one lessons – you can register to many websites and offer your skills and/or experience. Break the ice!
If you spend any time on social media and the internet in general, you must have heard about affiliate marketing – it is, essentially, giving you the opportunity to earn money by promoting brands on your platform. And, by ‘platform’ we mean your own asset, a place where you create content and have an audience, like a blog, webpage, or even social media site. If you fulfill these criteria, you can get a commission by promoting products or services of other companies and businesses.
One important thing, aside from the followers you need to have, is that you should choose to advertise only the brands you trust and that compliment your whole image on your platform. That’s how you will seem genuine to your audience. Earning from affiliate marketing can be a great side income, and even turn into something much more serious, depending on the size of your following.
Sell Your Goods Online
This is, for sure, one of the ways to make money fast. You can sell your books (for example, the used ones from your university), clothes, and many other items online. You would be surprised how fast you could cash if you were really in need.
Be a Freelancer
If you have (or had) a 9 to 5 job that was put on hold for some reason (lockdown and COVID-19 situation being one of the most common ones), there are ways to use your skill to freelance online. Take some time to register on some freelance platforms and market your skill. Whether it’s teaching, web design, writing, or any other skill, you can offer it on websites like Freelancer (site: https://www.freelancer.com/), Upwork (site: https://www.upwork.com/) or Fiverr (site: https://www.fiverr.com/).
To conclude, we would say yes, earning money quickly while sitting at home is possible. Are you going to get rich in a short amount of time? You never know. But one thing is for sure – if you have some extra time – or a lot of time, if you are currently unemployed – you can start earning some money quite fast online, without investing money. Good luck, Radasses, and keep yourselves informed.
If you take nothing else from this article, take this. You can determine what you do with your life and how much you make thanks to the internet.
