Taking on a side hustle has become a common way to earn a little extra money, and some part-time gigs can add a decent amount to your monthly income. Check out these five options to boost your personal cash flow.
Be a Clean Machine
Busy professionals, harried moms and people who just plain hate housework will pay $20 or more per hour to have someone else take care of the cleaning. It’s up to you whether to offer general home cleaning services or cater to a particular type of work, such as tidying and organization, cleaning bathrooms, sprucing up rented rooms or helping with daily cleaning tasks.
Leverage Your Various Talents
With task directory sites like Thumbtack, Handy, Fiverr and TaskRabbit, you can offer to perform just about any kind of service for which you have the skills. Sign up for an account, set up your profile and start working. There is pretty much no limitation to what you can make money doing through these sites, whether you’re a fitness pro with top tips and videos to share or a jack-of-all-trades handyman who can troubleshoot and fix a multitude of common problems.
Using task sites, you can set your own rates and schedule and choose only the jobs you want to take on. Browse for gigs in the onsite directories, or get alerts for jobs in your area through an associated app. Just be sure to communicate in detail with clients before booking any work so that you’re both on the same page regarding fees, deadlines and expectations.
Some people find shopping difficult, especially when trying to choose the right outfit or gift. Those with crazy schedules may even struggle to fit shopping for essential items like groceries and household foods in between tasks on their to-do lists. You can make $25 or more per hour assisting with whatever kind of shopping you personally enjoy or in which you have expertise.
Another option is to offer your services accompanying people who have difficulty navigating stores or who prefer not to shop alone. You’ll not only make a little extra cash but also help individuals with physical or age-related limitations preserve a greater degree of independence.
Get Social (Media)
Maintaining active, engaging social accounts is a must for businesses seeking to establish thought leadership in an industry and grow the visibility of their brands. It’s also a daunting task many small business owners don’t have the time or resources to handle. If you’re savvy with content creation and curation, you can hire yourself out as a social media coordinator for at least $30 per hour and spend your time helping clients build strong, prominent online presences.
Establishing a lucrative side gig takes a little time and requires effort to keep up, but once your name gets out there and word starts to spread, more clients and more money should start to come in, and you’ll see your part-time pursuit pay off.
