Are you looking for ways to earn more money through Side Hustles? I have listed some ways that are a great way to do just that, and plenty of options are available.
In this blog, I’ll be exploring the 10 things that can help you make more money through side hustles in the UK.
I’ve been supplementing my income using side hustles since I was about twenty years old. It was when I first got a laptop and I was Googling away the best ways to earn extra cash. I randomly came across a few blogs, that talked about surveys. This was my first stepping stone into the world of online earnings.
Whether you’re looking for a full-time job or something part-time to supplement your income – these side hustles could be just what you need.
Benefits of having a side hustle
I can’t think of any disadvantages of having a side hustle, so I have listed the benefits as it is always good to focus on the positives!
- You get more freedom and flexibility to do what you like.
- Learning new skills, I’ve learnt so much and now have a variety of different skills I can use in everyday life.
- Making money in non – boring unique ways! Who wants to work in an office?
- Be able to travel more, and travel on your terms whilst still making money with the side hustles you have built up.
- They give you a feeling of being productive and accomplished. This for me has been vital in helping my mental health overall
- Using the extra income to pay off debts, credit cards or anything else that may be a burden.
- Develop your confidence and bravery. Mystery shopping has helped me with this, I can record in shops, ask lots of questions to staff and simply not get shy or awkward around doing things like that anymore! As they say, practice makes perfect!
Overview of 10 Side Hustles That Make You More Money in the UK
A. Freelance Writing
B. Virtual Assistant Services
A virtual assistant is an independent contractor who provides administrative services to clients while operating outside of the client’s office. A virtual assistant typically operates from a home office but can remotely access the necessary planning documents, such as shared calendars.
C. Web Design and Development
Web design and development is an umbrella term that describes the process of creating a website. As the name suggests, it involves two major skill sets: web design and web development. Web design determines the look and feel of a website, while web development determines how it functions.
D. Tutoring/Teaching Online Courses
E. Selling Products on Etsy or eBay
While Etsy is undoubtedly a more niche marketplace well suited to smaller businesses that sell handmade, creative, artistic, unique and vintage products, eBay can potentially work for any seller because of its massive reach and vast diversity of inventory.
F. Drop shipping Businesses
One such business is drops hipping. This is a model whereby order fulfilment–the process of stocking, packing, shipping and delivering products to customers – is outsourced to a third party, often called the ‘drop shipper’.
G. Social Media Consultant
Social media consultants are individuals or agencies working with clients to improve, optimise, and grow their social media presence. Every social media consultant’s day-to-day work will look different depending on their offerings, which can range from one service to multiple.
H. Blogging/Affiliate Marketing
The concept of affiliate marketing is simple. An affiliate (you, the blogger) promotes a company’s products or services using a special link that identifies your blog as the traffic source. You earn a commission when a reader clicks on your link or purchases the product you’re promoting.
I . Graphic Design Services
Graphic design is a craft where professionals create visual content to communicate messages. By applying visual hierarchy and page layout techniques, designers use typography and pictures to meet users’ specific needs and focus on the logic of displaying elements in interactive designs, to optimise the user experience. I normally use Canva to create my designs, i have created my ebooks on this too and several printable templates.
J. Pet Sitting Services
Pet sitting involves caring for someone’s pet while they are not around. Generally, pet sitters take care of pets in either their own homes or in the owner’s home. A pet sitter’s job is often demanding. Owners expect you to tend to their pets just as they would, if not better. My top sites i use are Rover and Trusted House Sitters.
As a bonus extra I’ve just found an amazing creative side hustle whilst reading Taryn’s blog.
If you are a keen baker and are looking to make some extra cash, perhaps starting a cake baking business could be the perfect side hustle for you.
