It’s actually in a lot of people’s plans and goals to start a side hustle. Unfortunately many stay stuck and are unable to move to the next step until it’s too late.
Having a side hustle is one of the best things you can do for yourself. It helps takes the strain away from your main source of income and most importantly, helps you to stop depending so much on it.
With the internet, making money has been made even easier and here at Market Cap, we believe everyone should take this advantage and make a few extra coins.
Here’s how to make money online for beginners –even if you don’t have any skills or experience.
1. Complete Online Surveys
This is easy. Just take time and give feedback on several things and you’ll end up making a few coins.
Many companies pay people to participate in surveys for general market research and consumer behavior analysis. These surveys help companies make business decisions, like which products to launch or where to publish advertisements.
2. Sell Second-Hand Items
What do you have that you don’t need and can make you a few shillings? Sell things you don’t need online and once done with yours, ask your friends whether you can sell for them for a small commission.
3. Sell Art, Designs, stock Photos and Footage
You don’t have to own this but you can do it for a commission. Approach concerned parties and negotiate a deal on how you can sell their work. Selling on social media is a good way to make money fast, especially if you promote your art on specific networks.
Start a blog and get paid through Google AdSense or native ads after you build a strong readership.
And if you happen to have a substantial following online, then you might start doing vlogs on YouTube where they pay relatively well, or try out the influencing business.
5. Tutor Online
Which skill or knowledge do you have that you believe people will pay for? Is it cooking? Playing musical instruments? A subject in school? You can make good money by schooling people on the internet on these skills.
6. Become a Freelance Proofreader
Proofreading is another lucrative online career. Most agencies will pay around 25% of the price of a translated document to a proofreader according to different institutions.
7. Apply for Freelance Jobs
Freelancing is a great way to make money at your own pace. You can choose clients, set your own hours, and determine your rate.
8. Transcribe recordings
Transcription services are still in high demand thanks to the growing popularity of video and audio content. Transcribing simply means listening to a podcast, video, or audio recording from a YouTube channel and turning it into a text document.
