5 side hustles that actually work in 2019
2 ½ months in to 2019 already! What have you done with those new year resolutions?
Have you actually started your online business already, or is it still just a distant dream, or worse it’s a distant memory?
Remember when you were all fired up to make 2019 ‘The Year!’ ? This year would be different – right?
Well, if you did take action and start your new side hustle good for you! Go get ‘em tiger. But if you didn’t maybe these 5 side hustles that actually work, might motivate you to kickstart your new future life for yourself!
Here’s 5 side hustles that actually work:
There are now sooooo many online agencies that you can sign up for to find projects or mini-jobs to work from home. Just search ‘freelance, work from home, or similar in your favourite search engine and then register for the agencies.
It’s important that you have a professional profile along with a professional email, if you have your email account from when you were at school, or you find your names taken unless you really do have numerals in your name (like ‘ janedoe20876@maildomain’ ), then find a suitable professional looking name.
If you already have a domain name it’s worth paying for a domain email account since it’s so much more professional. If you have already done work either full time or voluntarily for other people, ask them to leave references for you on your new profile.
Also, get yourself or update your LinkedIn profile with your new side hustle and add as many links to the freelance sites you are registered to. Then start putting together proposals for advertised projects or jobs that other people post on these sites. Here’s some sites you can consider – there are plenty more; Some of our favourites are UpWork, Freelancer, Guru and even Fiverr
Are you one of these techie people who just love to try to break other people’s programs? You are? Well, this might just be the side hustle you need!
Software and websites have bugs and will often need testing, even existing sites that just had an upgrade. Why not get paid for just trying to break things? Most of the time all you need do is run a few scenarios and then write it up, you’re getting paid to report what happens.
Here’s a few ‘testing’ websites to help get you started: UserTesting.com, Userlytics, TryMyUI, and Userfeel.
Arts ‘n Crafts
Are you good with your hands? Are you creative? That hobby you have making miniature golf courses, for example, could be a very nice little business. Unique gifts that are personal and hand made are always in demand and sites like Etsy and Shopify are great online marketplaces to sell your wares.
If you are a good designer, perhaps you can make unique printable designs that can be placed on to mugs or even T-shirts? Go on, give it a go!
The numbers guy, or gal
Not that PC I know, but well, anyhoo…. Are you good with numbers, done any accountancy work or ledger work in the past? You have great then maybe you can set yourself up as a ledger clerk or bookkeeper for small firms or self-employed businesses.
Believe me, they’ll be thankful for someone to drop their receipts and books to who can put the papers into a nice neat pile for their accountant. In fact, accountants often look for someone to that work for them, many small businesses and self-employed people don’t keep good books. It might take you a while to get a number of customers, but when you do you’ll generally have them for ‘life’.
Last but not least…
Proof of live (or is that life?)
You like reading? You must do if you’ve got this far through the article, joke, ha ha. I’m talking about proofreading. If you like learning new information, enjoy reading or you are OCD when it comes to spelling and grammar, then proofreading is a great side hustle that actually works.
There is more and more written stuff these days, in paper and electronic and if the author wants to be taken seriously and have a good following then the writing has to be god… oops I mean good, see what I did there? LOL.
You can proofread articles, student thesis, blogs, reports, books even. You’ll learn a lot and get paid to do it. You could even start a blog of the interesting and varied subjects you read about….
There you are; 5 side hustles that actually work in 2019. I hope you enjoyed the read and …..
