Would you like to earn some extra money from home? You have probably heard tales about so-called internet entrepreneurs who earn money with blogs, web shops and the like, but what are other options? In this article I am talking about 4 digital side hustles to boost your income.
1. Boost your income with Social Media Consulting
Are you someone who is good at social media? Fully know the ins and outs of Facebook, Instagram and such platforms? Then social media consulting could be something for you. There are quite a few outdated companies that are eager to get on the web but fail themselves because they and their staff cannot make sense of it. Often, hiring a full-time social media manager is too expensive or seems unnecessary. This is where you can shine. As a social media consultant you work on a freelance basis for outdated companies and you help them with the branding of their company on social media. You can use fonts for free online to create social media campaigns or images for the different social media channels.
2. Make Money With Dropshipping
Dropshipping is simply the resale of products on the internet. With dropshipping you have a webshop where you offer products. When someone buys a product from you, you buy that product from your supplier and they send it to your customer. The product never ends up in your hands and you have not paid for it before. This way you can have a webshop with little cost and risk.
3. Make Money With Blogging
Earning money from home can easily be done online through blogging. Starting a blog about a topic that interests you and you know a lot about can make a lot of money. Often people make the mistake of making a blog “personal”. They use their blog as their personal diary. Of course, such a thing could work. If you are an influencer or celebrity. But another option is to pick one subject and have a niche blog. This means that they are about one topic. Just think of football, for example. A microniche is then even more in-depth, just think of indoor football.
You can develop a good niche or microniche that you know a lot about into an online authority. You make money with blogging through advertisements, affiliate marketing, sponsorships and much more. There are hundreds of options for bloggers to monetize their passion.
4. Passive Income with Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is a risk-free way to make money online. With affiliate marketing you receive a percentage of the products you advertise or promote. This can be done on a blog, YouTube channel, social media, forums and similar platforms.
You will sometimes see an influencer promoting a product and they will say “use my code…”, when you buy that product with the code, they will receive a small commission on it. This is called affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is something you can easily earn some money on the side with and is often combined with other internet ventures. For example, as I said before, a blogger will often have affiliate links of products on his / her blog in addition to advertisements.
