A few tips are to expound on your current idea, add new modules or features to your package, create new graphics, and generally pump up the volume. You don’t have to come up with new product ideas, services and content — you just need to leverage it more and produce new stuff less.
27. Housesitting – One of the easiest side hustles to do: simply sit and sleep in someone’s house while they are out of town. This is a great side hustle, but too bad it’s usually not a consistent revenue stream for most.
After six months, calculate your total six months revenue from your site and multiply this by 2. Assuming that you leave the site the same, the next six months will probably bring in the same amount of revenue if not more. Instead of keeping your website, sell it.
Textbroker – Textbroker pays up to five cents per word, if you’re a 5-star writer. You’ll start by submitting a short sample article and you will most likely start as a 3-star writer, but you can work your way up by writing more and writing great content.
If you have a talent for storytelling and can write well, you might want to give this a try. It can be stressful (crazy deadlines), and it’s sometimes dull (can you give me 3,000 words on health care reconciliation software?), but after you’ve built a reputation, you get to write more of what you want, and the pay is pretty darn good.

Take my friend, Mark Jackson’s lead with what he’s doing to build a travel consulting side business idea. Start with word of mouth recommendations from friends who know they can count on you for the cheapest flights, create a Facebook or LinkedIn group to invite people who want to stay on top of the latest deals and eventually you could spin this business idea into a full-time consultancy teaching people how to make your dream trip a reality.
Mystery shopping isn’t going to generate a regular income, but it can be a fun way to earn extra money and get free stuff. Signing up for mystery shopping should be free. Any place that charges you money is probably not a legitimate mystery shopping company. Also, companies that use mystery shoppers require professionalism and often a lot of detail. It’s not just a matter of buying something. Often there are specific departments you have to visit, questions you have to ask, or things you need to buy. Then you have to submit a detailed report. Here are a few places to learn about and sign up as a mystery shopper.

So far, I’ve managed to keep my costs down by keeping my eyes open and being skeptical about spending additional money when they ask, and I encourage anyone who uses this product to do the same. Stay on top of it, and don’t have a ‘whatever’ attitude about your money.
I HATE the word “flipping.” It is unprofessional, and people who are knowledgeable real estate investors say “wholesaling.” If you are going to be “flipper” of anything, then please think of something sensible to call yourself or do something else.
It’s true what they say, “it isn’t until you’ve lost everything that you’re free to do anything”, and I was faced with the daunting task of finding my way into another career when most companies were laying off people in droves. “Hire you now?“, they’d say, “We just let 20 go!” After looking down the barrel of my dwindling savings and unemployment, I realized it was time to take control of my future and fail or succeed on my own merits.
Etsy. Are you crafty? This is one of those websites where, once again, it helps if you have a real skill. If you’re artistic and are the type of person who can make custom jewelry or refrigerator magnets with the best of them, Etsy is the place to sell it. For the rest of us, we must find another website to go to, so we can earn money to buy things from the crafty people at Etsy.

First of all let me introduce myself to you just in case you don’t already know who I’m. My name is Fidelis Anene. I have been a successful internet marketer for more than 4 years now. Just before I discovered internet marketing I was an ordinary salary earner in one of the construction companies in Nigeria. Even though I rose to the position of a supervisor yet I couldn’t meet up because my salary always ran out before the month ended. I worked round the clock to keep my job and earned about a hundred thousand naira every month from salaries and allowances but I had nothing to show for it. There were so many beautiful things I longed to own that I couldn’t afford and to make matters worse I was always living from hand to mouth. Then I found out about “INTERNET MARKETING“ and my life changed.
Though your local community will be thrilled to have fresh flowers in their town, you will still have the struggle of competing against online delivery services. Remember, if you are the first florist the town has ever seen (or at least for a while), they are probably used to ordering online. Habits can be hard to break. The best way to compete with the online sea of flora is with reasonable prices, attention to detail and customers service, and a sprig of creativity.
I just recently started my own in home personal training business. If you have the passion for fitness and helping people and also have a good set up in your home (separate training room) then I highly suggest it! It’s fun and why not make a little extra money?
There’s a huge growing market for mobile phone accessories, and plenty of handmade sellers are raking in 6 and sometimes 7 figures from their phone case businesses. You can get your own phone case business up and running as a side business idea in a matter of days with turnkey solutions from Case Escape, my previous company, and you can now get ready-to-go kits that’ll give you everything you need to start a phone case business. Once you’re up and running, you can sell cases on Etsy, Amazon Handmade, and Fancy. During our first year of selling phone cases as a side business idea on our Etsy store, we made around $60,000 in revenue from that selling channel alone—not to mention additional sales from fairs, trade shows, promotional products vendors, parties, events and other online marketplaces. From there, the sales only continued growing and we graduated from side business idea full-time company that I ran with my best friend for multiple years.

…and I don’t say this to brag, my point is: ‘if I am able to do this, then absolutely everybody can do it’ but you need to do it right in order to achieve success; you need a system, and that’s what I have developed; a system that works over and over…
It’s vital that the new web hosting site you’re considering is cheap to run and has attractive site templates, but it’s much more essential that it fits the latest security regulations. Here’s how to figure out if your web hosting site can be trusted in terms of online safety.
So happy to see Jam Maker on this list. I recently started my own business making and selling unique jams and jellies online. I never knew I was trendy. Many good ideas on here. I’ve only just started to make the break from traditional work force, but believe it is the best decision I’ve made in a long time – though I still haven’t fully quit my day job.
I think you’d need to add them manually via HTML file through file editor. I think it’s easier if you set up a website using WordPress, in that way you don’t need to know all the coding language/HTML etc..
How much space do you have? Will it allow for expansion as you add clients and equipment? I started with what I thought was ample space, but after adding a second printer, scanner, fax machine, and more file drawers, it was a bit of a gauntlet. To make it trickier, every time I added a piece of equipment, it displaced one of my husband’s possessions. One time he even lost his entire dresser to my impromptu expansion.
The way around this is to act like your home office is in the center of an actual office. That means, yes, taking a shower, getting dressed, and being presentable for your workday. Somehow, it switches your mindset, and being preparing to “go” to work (even if it’s just a stroll down the hallway) makes the transition easier. I also schedule specific times to check email , and when I get a Facebook alert, I refrain from logging in until lunch hour.
