3 Online Side Hustles to Make Extra Money
I’m delighted to tell you that there are many ways to make money online if you’ve been considering plans for launching a side hustle. I’ve been making extra cash on three popular online websites to supplement my income, and you can easily replicate my results.
Fundamentally, I sell goods on eBay, host visitors on Airbnb, and teach on UDEMY. I’ve found using those three platforms to be the most efficient method to generate extra money because it was easy to get started and gain access to a broad customer base. These platforms are excellent because they allow you access to their shoppers. That means you don’t have to worry about hunting for buyers.
Drop shipping on eBay
Drop shipping on eBay was the first way I was able to make some extra cash online. To date, I’ve conducted over 1,000 transactions on eBay. Selling on eBay is simple because all you have to do is sign up for a seller’s account and create a listing for the item you want to sell.
Once you publish your listings, your items become visible to millions of potential buyers. The great thing about eBay is they provide you access to their customer base, and you offer the product for sale. eBay will keep a percentage of the proceeds of the transaction as part of their commission.
Drop shipping on eBay is a business model you can run from anywhere in the world wherever you have an internet connection because you don’t have to hold any inventory in your possession. You merely work with a supplier and list their items for sale, and wait for customers to buy it. After a customer purchases from you on eBay, you order the item from your supplier and have it shipped directly to your customer.
Hosting on AirBNB
Hosting a rental property on Airbnb has proven to be quite successful for me. I am fortunate enough to be able to host my wife’s vacation beach apartment in Spain, and so far I’ve managed to host over 15 reservations successfully.
The best thing about hosting on Airbnb is you don’t need to own a vacation property; you can just rent out the spare room in your home! And in most cases, you don’t even have to be the owner of the property you are hosting. If you have a spare bedroom in your home or apartment, you should create a listing on AirBNB if you’re looking for a simple way to produce some extra money.
Creating a listing on Airbnb is easy. You can do everything through your smartphone using the Airbnb app. It took me roughly an hour to complete my listing from start to finish, and 2 days later I received a booking reservation from my first guest!
Teaching on UDEMY
Okay, I’ll admit I had just finished my first UDEMY course yesterday, and I haven’t had any students enroll yet, but I know it’s certain that I’ll eventually have students joining my class. That’s because UDEMY is an excellent education platform where thousands of students interested in learning new skills enroll in courses daily.
The challenging part about creating a UDEMY course it the amount of work that goes into producing a high-quality course. It requires proper planning and adequate time management to make a magnificent course. It took me about three weeks to complete my course, from the planning phase to the finished product.
You also need to have a topic you want to teach. I created a Personal Finance course to teach my students how to manage their money. I see the potential of reaching a vast audience through UDEMY, so I’ll eventually roll out more courses. I have an idea to teach Spanish to native English speakers, so that’s presumably the next course I’ll create.
