11 Side Hustles That Will Pay You DAILY ($64,859/month)
One of the most amazing things about the internet is how many money-making opportunities it’s created and continues to create to this day. If you want to make serious money on the side by working just a couple of hours a day, then it’s absolutely possible to do that.
If you aren’t sure of what to do – we’re going to solve that problem in this video because I’m giving you 11 side hustle ideas you can start both online & offline to start making a great income for yourself with very little time investment, skills, or knowledge required. Now I know that sounds good to you, so let’s waste no time and get right into it.
Selling Stock Photos
If you know your way around a camera and are able to edit photos well – you can make money selling stock photos to sites like Shutterstock, iStock Photo, and Etsy. The upside to this one is that you can learn to take great photos quickly through YouTube, so it’s a skill that doesn’t require much time for you to get good. And once you’ve put up a good amount of photos online, it’s 100% passive income. Now the downside to this is that there are a lot of photos out there now, and with AI-generated artwork becoming more and more popular, selling stock photos may not be as lucrative as it once was.
That being said, if you want a creative side hustle to help you pay your bills while you improve in a useful skill like photography, then it’s definitely something worth considering. So how much cheddar can you bring to the kitchen? That’s a terrible metaphor for money, but it doesn’t matter because I’ve found an example of someone bringing in $67 a month of pure passive income. Not bad, but I’d probably pay you more to drop a like on this video, to be honest, so this is getting a 1.7/10.
I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve never actually heard or even thought of this one. But you can do jury duty from your house and get paid for it. Online juror jobs involve taking part in mock trials set up by lawyers and law firms to help them get ready for being in court for real. There are websites like onlineverdict.com which are constantly on the lookout for online jurors to take part and help train their legal staff. This website says it pays jurors up to $60 per case, which takes an hour maximum but sometimes 20 minutes. Now there’ll be some requirements, You’ll need to be over the age of 18.
You might need to be a US citizen with a good grasp of the English language and no criminal record. But once you’re set up – this can be a really good way to make some extra cash on the side. How much can you earn as an upper limit, though? Well, according to this online juror – over $300 a day. But according to my research, it isn’t consistent work, so it’s not as though you’ll be getting paid that every day. However – let’s say you get one of those a week. That’s $300 per week or $1,200 per month as an online juror. Crime doesn’t pay – but the law does, apparently. I’m giving this a 3/10, which isn’t bad, but there are way better options coming up.
Create a business online course
Creating and selling an online course is a great way to earn some side hustle money. And I’m suggesting the entrepreneurship or business niche because it’s got great earning potential, and this niche is absolutely exploding in demand right now. And the great news is that once the course is created and sold – it’s passive income. Now you might be thinking that you don’t know enough about business and entrepreneurship to take a course. Well, this is where the magic lies because this niche has so many sub-topics within it that you could easily learn something valuable quickly, package that information into a course, and sell it for a profit.
For example, you may not know much about entrepreneurship as a whole, but you could certainly learn about writing great emails that get clicks and sales, right? You’d need to only read a few books on the topic to learn enough to package it into a valuable course. Or if you have some basic knowledge of managing your finances, you could learn a little more and create a course helping solo entrepreneurs save a ton of money each month. The possibilities are there. And so is the potential to earn very good money. Now I found a guy online who was able to prove that he made $35k in a year from releasing a course, so divided across 12 months is around $2900 per month, which really isn’t bad, I’m sure you’d agree. This gets a 4.5/10 from me.
If you like taking care of animals, then this is absolutely a side hustle you can get paid quite handsomely for. Now this isn’t an online side hustle because dog-walking over Zoom isn’t really a thing yet. But you can totally start offering your petsitting and dog walking services to homes in your local area. There are also agencies that can hire you, or you can freelance through sites like Rover and Wagwalking.com. Now I don’t know much about the science and physics behind dog-sitting, so I can’t tell you much more than that, but one thing I can tell you is that it pays surprisingly well.
I found a site that offers dogsitting services for $125 a day. Let’s say you got paid that for working 5 days a week full-time. $125 for 5 days is $750 a week or $3000 a month. That’s not a terrible income for walking dogs. And if you wanted to keep it strictly as a side hustle, then there’s good earning potential for just a few hours a day. If this one paid more, it’d be my favorite side hustle on the list, especially if you could walk Beagles all day. In fact, you know what? Leave a comment with your favorite dog breed. I’m curious. Okay, so what rating does this get? I’m throwing a 5/10 bone to this dog.
Start a faceless YouTube channel
Although starting a YouTube channel is no walk in the park, it could be totally worth it. As Ali Abdaal once said, “If you manage to stick with uploading videos consistently for 2 years, I guarantee your life will change.” And he’s not wrong. YouTube, as a side hustle, can bring in much more ad revenue and be monetized a lot quicker than most people think. You don’t just have ad revenue anymore. You can also monetize with Patreon, merch, courses, services, and digital products. Your YouTube channel is really just a springboard for you to make money from a bunch of different places. And starting a channel has never been easier.
Once you’ve picked a profitable niche business, technology, or lifestyle – you can leverage different AI tools to get the job done and start churning out videos fast. For example, you can get ideas and write the script through tools like Chat GPT. Edit them using a tool called Quillbot. Take the text and put it into a tool called Eleven Labs to get the voiceover done. You can even clone your own voice with Eleven Labs if that doesn’t creep you out too much. Then you can do some basic editing using free software like Davinci Resolve using stock images and footage you can find for free online. Once you’ve got a video, you can use AI image generation software like Midjourney to design the thumbnail. This whole process removes so much work and makes it so much easier to start pumping out content. Just make sure it’s good.
AI can’t do everything for you. So how much can you realistically make with a faceless youtube channel? Well – like many of the items on this list, it can vary from $0 to literally millions. One great example is Matt Par, who has 9 faceless YouTube channels; one has over 1 million subscribers, and the others with over 100,000 subscribers. His faceless channels generate over $30,000 per month just in ad revenue alone. And here’s another guy who mentions that he nearly made $4000 in his first month with a luxury niche channel. There’s solid earning potential here, but this one requires patience and consistency. It’s not an easy way to make money, but once you’re earning good money with your channel, that’s passive income that rolls into your account without you needing to do anything. I’m giving this a 6/10.
Become a driver for Amazon Flex
If you’ve got a car, a van, an SUV, or a pickup truck, you can join team Besos and start delivering packages for Amazon Flex. This is a legit side gig that can make you some extra cash on the side. Now I want to empower you guys and be totally transparent by giving you the good, the bad, and the ugly. There are pros and cons to this job. In terms of pros – you get to be your own boss, you have a flexible schedule, and the pay is pretty high compared to other delivery jobs that are similar. You also don’t really interact with customers that much if you’re a bit of an introvert. Now the downsides are that the competition can be pretty damn brutal, depending on where you are. Sometimes you’re competing with tons of other people on packages, especially if you live in a big city. Some people online are saying that it can be hard to consistently get shifts. That being said, there are plenty of people making a full-time income with Amazon Flex.
There are some basic requirements to get started with Amazon Flex. Things like being at least 21, having a social security number, and having a valid driver’s license, for example. If you meet all the requirements, getting started is as easy as downloading the Amazon Flex app, answering qualifying questions, and putting in your data. Once your application has been processed, you can start delivering packages. According to Amazon, their drivers get paid an average of $18 – $25 per hour, although your actual salary will depend on a few different factors.
Basically, the more you put in, the more you get out. It’s one of those. Now one pretty cool thing about this job is something called Surges. Sometimes, the Amazon Flex pay can be as high as $55/hour during peak season or extreme weather. That’s called surge pay. Here’s a screenshot of the payout of a driver who got a $275 offer for a 5-hour block to make deliveries in Seattle. That’s $55 per hour. On that note – how much can you expect to make? Well, in my research, I came across a few people making solid money from doing this. The guy who gave the example of his surge pay makes an average of $50,000 per year or $4,166 per month which really isn’t bad for just driving around delivering packages. I’m giving this a 6/10 rating.
Paid Internet Friend
Sadly there are some pretty lonely people out there. Some people just need someone to talk to during tough times. Some people are sick of shallow social media interaction and are starved for real social connections. The good news is you can actually offer your companionship to some of these people, and they’ll pay you for your commitment in return. Virtual friends are also great for people with disabilities who can’t get out of the house, the elderly, and those with social anxiety who struggle to interact with people face-to-face.
You can find people through sites like Rentafriend.com, and the pay might surprise you. Here’s a screenshot from their website, which shows that for just 3 days per week as a side hustle, you could make over $4800 per month. Even more, if you go full-time with it, imagine being a full-time friend to people and earning $8000 a month. That would be insane. But solving loneliness in the world and being paid for it is a pretty good side hustle, so for that reason, I’m giving it 7/10 on our cash rating scale.
Furniture Assembly On TaskRabbit
Let me ask you a question. How much money do you think you could make by helping people move home and assemble furniture? A few hundred bucks a month? Now you’re gonna struggle to believe me with this one but just stick with me. Turns out there are tons of side hustles that people don’t even ever consider but are currently making people a ridiculous amount of money. And helping people move homes and assemble furniture through TaskRabbit is one such side hustle. But what is Taskrabbit?
Basically, TaskRabbit is a same-day service platform that connects people who need help with cleaning, furniture assembly, home repairs, running errands, and other handy stuff with people who can do it. This may not come as a surprise to you – but people are willing to pay top dollar for someone to come and assemble their Ikea furniture. So if you’re fairly handy, becoming a Tasker on this platform is pretty simple. All you do is go to Taskrabbit.com and create your account. Then build your profile & choose what services you want to offer and where.
You’ll then be given a test of eligibility to task and some identity confirmation stuff, but it doesn’t take long. Once you’ve paid the registration fee and chosen your schedule, you’ll be ready to start accepting jobs pretty much immediately. But how much do Taskers get paid on this platform? Drum roll…..a lot. I found a ton of examples of people being paid way more than you’d think. This guy brings in a cool 6k per month using Taskrabbit alone.
He also charges the magic number. That’s right – $69 per hour for some tasks. Can you imagine being paid $69 an hour as a side hustle? But this isn’t even the most anyone makes. This Tasker crossed his 8k per month threshold and mentioned that he averages around 7k a month. Look at his hourly rates, too. It’s insane. This gets a 7.5 rating from me because you make a very good full-time income for real honest work. What’s not to like?
Become an online personal trainer
If you’re into fitness, health, or nutrition – a great side hustle could be coaching people online. Online fitness coaching has become really popular in the last five years. COVID helped to be honest. Now the way this would differ from in-person training is obviously you can’t be there to take them through a session. But that doesn’t mean you can’t write a fitness program for a person, coach them on nutrition, and have weekly check-ins with them to hold them accountable. Not everyone needs a coach to shadow their gym session. Plenty of people are more than capable of getting into the gym and training themselves. But what almost everyone (me included) could use when it comes to building better, healthier habits is accountability.
And that’s what online coaches provide. Some people will pay top dollar for a great online personal trainer. The scope of earnings is quite wide which is similar to a lot of other industries. There are people making $10 an hour, and there are people like Mike here that pull in regular $10k months doing it. You just need to know how to market yourself to get a stream of steady clients through your digital doors. That means marketing, sales, and content creation. Especially since going online means your competition goes from local to international. But if you like helping people make meaningful changes to their lives, then this could absolutely be a great side hustle for you to start in your spare time. This gets a damn respectable 8/10 on the cash rating scale.
Creating & Selling Notion Templates
Next up is such an amazing side hustle idea that I stumbled upon. It’s all about selling Notion templates. Now, you might be thinking, “Dylan, what the hell is Notion.” Well, it’s a pretty incredible productivity app that lets you organize your life and work in one place. Now, here’s where the side hustle comes in. There are tons of people out there who struggle with setting up Notion and making it work for them. That’s where you come in. You can create and sell pre-made Notion templates to help them save time and effort.
Notion has a user base that’s constantly growing. And you can tap into it and make great money in the process. For example, this madman, Thomas Frank, made over $100k from selling Notion templates through Gumroad. The great thing about selling Notion templates is that it’s a low-cost and low-risk side hustle. You don’t need any special equipment or a physical inventory. All you need is a computer, an internet connection, and a bit of creativity. You can create templates for different purposes like project management, goal tracking, habit tracking, and meal planning. Whatever you can imagine, really.
Now to get started, you need to know your way around Notion. If you haven’t signed up yet, then go ahead and do that. Go to Notion.so and make an account. Start using it for your work and day-to-day stuff. Not only is this good side hustle research but you’ll also realise how much of a game changer it is for your life. Download a few free templates and experiment to see what works and what doesn’t. Once you know your way around the software, you can start to think about what problems people might have and see if you can design templates that solve those problems. Time management. Meal planning. Gym workouts. Habit tracking. Make a list of problems you can solve and design some templates for them.
Once you’ve got your templates ready, there are a few different platforms where you can sell them. You can set up your own website or use existing marketplaces like Etsy or Gumroad. Promote your templates through social media, create tutorial videos, and engage with the Notion community to get the word out. As you start making sales, you can expand your template offerings, create bundle deals, or even offer subscription services where customers receive new templates regularly. The potential for growth and profitability is really quite massive, especially when you consider that Notion is up and coming even today.
Okay, so you might be thinking, “That guy from earlier made 100k, but there’s always the 1% that make most of the money, but that doesn’t mean I could make that much, right?” Well – here’s an Etsy store that sells ONLY Notion templates that have made almost $180,000 in around 520 days. That’s $346 per day or $10,726 per month just from selling templates to a single piece of software. The key is that they sell templates specifically to solve different problems. And what’s even more impressive is that a solid chunk of this monthly revenue comes from one template, which brings in almost $2400 per month. That’s almost pure profit because it’s a fully digital product with no shipping costs or inventory. So if you get along well with Notion and you want a side hustle that’s fun and rewarding, then this could be something to consider. This gets an 8.5/10 from me.
A lot of people underestimate the income potential of some good old-fashioned flipping. No, I’m not talking about being a professional gymnast, although I’m sure they make pretty good money too. I’m talking about the ancient art of buying something for cheap and selling it for more than you paid for it. Buy low. Sell high. I think it was the Buddha that first said that, but I could be wrong. When it comes to flipping, you can sell pretty much anything. The most common things professional flippers sell are clothing, electronics, jewelry, instruments, and board games.
Pretty much anything you can think of can be flipped for a profit. But where do you find things to resell? Here’s where you can get creative. Think garage sales, second-hand shops, thrift stores, flea markets. The kinds of places where the people behind the counter may not know the ins and outs of what they’re actually selling. You can often find vintage and even designer clothing brand items and expensive jewelry for as little as a few dollars or even less. In researching this video, I came across a comment from a woman who made $500 from a necklace she sold for 25 cents. Crazy stuff.
And once you’ve got some good stock together, you can flip those finds online at one of the many online marketplaces like eBay – often for massive profits, as we just saw. This is a great side hustle to get started with because there are tons of things out there selling for cents that you could flip for fistfuls of dollars. You could even get started this weekend. It’s one of the most accessible side hustles to get into. And the earning potential is through the roof. This guy makes $13 – $16k per month from flipping on eBay. This is why I’m giving this a solid 9 out of ten, making it the king of this list – but it still isn’t the king of all side hustles.
