Companies, blogs, magazines, and other publications are always looking to pay writers good content. Copywriting is in huge demand right now and doesn’t show any signs of stopping.
Even as a newbie writer, you could expect to earn anywhere from $0.15 to $1 per word. This would include writing articles, blogs for websites, social media posts, and other types of copywriting.
For example, if you got paid $0.20 per word for a 1200 word article, 4 times a month, that would be close to an extra $1000/m in earnings!

Web or Graphic Designer
Can you create visually stunning websites, book covers, or graphics? If so, there’s no shortage of work for you as a Web or Graphic Designer. Individuals and businesses need websites…like yesterday!

Voice Over Artist
This was one of my personal side hustles as I built my own brand and business! A voice-over artist will lend their voice to videos, audiobooks, radio commercials, automatic phone directories, and a variety of other audio-based projects. For this job, you’ll need to be able to read very well out loud, have a quiet recording space, and a good microphone.

Online Course Creator
Being proficient in a certain area or having experience in a niche can translate into a great side income. There are millions of people looking to learn a skill online, so the sky is the limit with this one. Different from being a tutor, you would create and then charge a fee for courses. They could be on topics like (but not limited to!): social media, writing a book, yoga training, calligraphy, astrology, learning a language, building a website, growing balcony gardens….literally anything you could imagine!
Depending on the length and topic of your course, you could charge anything from $100 to $5000.
Customer Service Rep
The most old-school suggestion on our list, but still a goodie! Many companies (Like Disney, Amazon, and Dell) are saying NO to paying high office fees and hiring customer service reps to work from home instead. Check out online job boards for remote customer service jobs that are on a part-time basis. Tasks could include everything from taking phone calls to tech support, to online chat with clients.
Remote Customer Service Reps make anywhere from $8 to $20 an hour for most part-time positions.
