Whether you’re a young professional wanting a little more pocket money or a student who wants to upgrade their brand of baked beans, there are lots of ways to earn extra money through an online side gig. Here are some of the best…

Start Freelancing

If you have a talent such as illustration, writing, logo design or something else, you could find clients to sell your services to on the many freelancing platforms. Some people use these sites as their full-time income, while others use them as a side gig to earn some extra pocket money while studying or working elsewhere. Some of the best sites to check out include:

  • Fiver
  • Freelancer
  • Upwork
  • People per Hour

YouTube Careers

If you like the sound of being a host, maybe it is time to finally get on with starting your own YouTube channel. It could be about anything you want, but it is always recommended to make your channel about something your passionate about. Passion shines through to viewers and makes the content even better. Will it be travel, cooking, book reviews or something else?

If you like creating written content instead of vlogs, you may prefer to start blogging as an affiliate marketer instead.

Become a Live Dealer/Host

Online casinos and some TV channels now offer live games. This means people can play along from home but have a more lifelike experience with dealers and host streamed live to the site or the channel. But you don’t have to know the rules of blackjack or roulette to become a live dealer. There are other live games that just require you to be a great host.

You could become a host with innovative companies like Evolution Gaming. Or be involved with the team get ready to stream their live Crazy Time game action from one of the many live studios. This live game is set to be released in July 2020.

Virtual Assistant Jobs

Lots of jobs have gone online and can be done remotely. Assistant and administration work are the types of jobs that are perfect for remote working – and they already have. Virtual assistants are in demand among big companies, small firms and even sole-traders who need services like bookkeeping. If you are an organised person, maybe with an office background, these jobs can be a piece of cake. And you can set your hours most of the time!

eCommerce Stores

Creative types are often great at making clothes, accessories or things for the home, such as candles. If you can make something unique and want to sell it online, it has never been easier. Instead of needing a flashy website and fine-tuned marketing campaign, simply make yourself an Amazon account or sign up to Etsy. They’ve already made the platform for you. All you need to do is put yourself and your products out there!

These are some of the most popular, but they are not all of your options. If you like to game, there are more ways for gamers to make money!
