Cool Ways to Make
Extra Money in Your Spare Time
We can never have too much money. There are bills to pay, kids to clothe and feed, not to mention treats to buy. The trouble is it can be hard to find a job that pays enough to cover anything but the bare minimum. If this sounds like you, here are a few great ways to earn money in your spare time.
Make Money from a Hobby
Are you good at arts and crafts? If so, this is your chance to start earning money from a hobby. Anyone who can make soap or candles, knit, stitch, sew, or paint pictures should be able to find less talented people to pay for their services. Advertise your services on social media or sell directly to the public on Etsy or eBay. Once you have a customer base and you know your products sell well, look into pop up retail space through Westfield Specialty Leasing. Before you know it, you could be head of your own retail empire.
Buy and Sell Online
Online auction websites such as eBay make it really easy to start buying and selling products in your spare time. To do this, open a seller’s account and decide what niche you want to specialize in. Next, buy some stock and list it for sale at a marked-up price. As long as you price your goods competitively and don’t pay too much for them in the first place, you should be able to make a profit.
Share Your Knowledge
If you can play a musical instrument or you are good at explaining the intricacies of advanced calculus, there is an opportunity to help others learn and make money at the same time.
Sell Unwanted Goods
Most people’s homes are full of junk they no longer use, but one person’s junk is another person’s treasure. An easy way to make money in the short-term is to sell off everything you don’t want or need. Have a yard sale or list it all on eBay or Craig’s List. You will be surprised at how much money your junk makes.
Rent a Room
Do you have a spare room? Do you live in a desirable area or a tourist hotspot? If so, there is plenty of scope to make a bit of money on the side by renting out rooms on Airbnb. It is easy to register as a host and sites such as Airbnb take care of all the backroom stuff on your behalf, so all you have to do is clean the room and be nice to your temporary guest.
Blogging is a hugely popular activity. Millions of people write blogs for fun and profit. It is really easy to set up a blog: all you need to do is buy a domain name and hosting, and then create your blog, Write about subjects that interest you and as your web traffic increases, you will be able to score free products and paid guest blogs.
This is just a fraction of the many ways you can make money in your spare time, so be creative and above all, stay safe!
