  • Manage social media for small businesses: Many small businesses are realising the ubiquitousness social media offers them but they simply don’t have the time or resources to fully take advantage of it. That’s where you come in. Take it upon yourself to contact local businesses around you and offer up your services for a contracted monthly fee. This is an easy way to make money regardless of where you live.

  • Offer your services on Fiverr: You know what they call the gig economy? Fiverr helped birth it. All services start from $5 but trust me when I tell you that people are making six-figure-plus revenues annually. You can sell almost anything on Fiverr, but you can only become very successful if you can deliver incredible amounts of value.

  • Become a Skype tutor: Another benefit of technology is how it allows you to be anywhere you want to be anytime you want to be there. You can tutor people on things that you are good at from wherever you are. It can be a language, soft skills, or technical skills. 

  • Have a yard sale: Go through your belongings and identify items that you don’t need. You would be surprised at the amount of stuff you can find and sell. Before you know what is happening, you will have made so much money just by selling old stuff you no longer need or want. 

There are several other ways that you can make money on the side and we will talk about them some other day.
