Whether you already have a main job or not, it doesn’t hurt to make a little extra cash. In 2021.
Especially with the pandemic, online is the way to go.
If you’ve already had a scroll through the many remote jobs offers available online and realized that you don’t have the skills required for them, don’t worry.
This is a list of online side-hustles that practically anyone can do.
Create A Podcast
Podcasting is a relatively easy hobby to get into, and if you add affiliate links to your podcast there is potential to earn a decent income through your podcast.
Talk about whatever it is that interests you, and people will tune in to listen.
Gaining followers on podcast sharing websites depends on SEO, and how engaging your content is.
High-quality content is essential if you want to get SoundCloud followers.
Teach English Online
There are several websites that allow tutors and students to get together online for English lessons.
You can get a TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) certificate online easily.
However, if you aren’t willing to invest in taking a course, there are still options.
Many websites (Cambly is the most well-known) do not require certification because they are geared towards improving English and not necessarily teaching.
So if you can hold an interesting conversation, this is a great option to consider.
As more people are creating video and audio content for social media, there is a lot more content that needs to be transcribed.
It doesn’t take much skill, and all you need is a decent pair of headphones to listen carefully.
Some transcribers are able to transcribe almost as fast as the speech they are listening to, but in general, it may take a while for you to get used to the speed.
Several websites offer transcribing jobs, and you can even approach social media content creators to offer your services directly.
If you have basic writing skills you can make your living as a copywriter or content writer.
This involves writing articles or content with a specific goal (such as marketing).
You might need to learn how to use Google better to learn how to research efficiently, but that can all be learned as you work.
Pay depends on the quality of your writing and the number of assignments you take on.
Become A Social Media Manager
Many businesses need someone to manage their social media accounts.
You probably already know how to use most of the major social media platforms.
All you would need to do is answer on their behalf and post content (written by content creators) on their pages.
It is a demanding job in that it requires your constant attention. However, it isn’t hard to learn.
Earning money online does not need to be overly complicated.
There are many opportunities that can help you earn a decent amount of money without the need for certification or special skills of any kind. All you need is a little effort.
