Earning extra money on the side is always a good thing.
But what side jobs can be really worth checking? I heard enough about renting property at air Bnb, driving for Uber, selling on ebay or amazon and even taking surveys. So going forward, they are not the ones I will even discuss here. Please keep in mind, be careful when searching for money making opportunities. Sometimes, we find something thats too good to be true and we get lured and then scammed.
Here are some jobs that you can do on the side.
If you dream of owning a business without the headaches of having to buy products to sell or physical location to manage, drop shipping may be a good start. DropShip is offered by many companies where each company can allow an individual to sell their products without having to buy or keep inventory. Dropshipping company will offer their products at low prices so you can put the additional profits on top of their prices. You can find many companies who offers Dropship program based on your interest. Some of the companies are Scallable Press and VistaPrint
If you want to design your products, Scalable Press offers the capability to design phone cases, mug, posters and even shirts to shorts. They can fulfill your orders and ship them directly to your own customers. Sell your design products to your friends and family. Offer your design service to your local organization. For example, there are many local businesses such as restaurants that are launching each day. Take advantage of this opportunity to sell your shirt designing services. Likewise, you can introduce your services to currently launched businesses because over time, employers will need to replace the shirt uniforms of their employees. You can also sell your design products in your websites. If you don’t have a website to sell products, you can open a store in Shopify or WooCommerce.
Are you a creative person and have talents creating business cards, custom stamps, forms, invitations or other promotional merchandise? Vista Print offers free Basic membership to join their reseller program. They have great pricing on their merchandise that you can add your profit on top of their regular pricing. If you a have a website with ecommerce software, just post vistaprint products and a customer can check out to purchase. To ship the product to your customer, just place the order to your Vistaprint account. VistaPrint can ship your package to your customer without knowing or stating the product came from VistaPrint. After you try the basic program and it seems to work for you, you can upgrade to ProAdvantage Program where you get deeper discounts and a flat rate shipping of $3.99 per order. It cost $79 a year but you get more profits when discount is applied.
2. Private Label
Private label are products purchased from manufacturers and then sold under your own logo label. Many of the products we purchase are private label products. From nutrition supplement, cosmetic, skincare, coffee, beverages, children’s toys, cookies, baby products, pet products and the list goes on. To find products, check out Alibaba or Ali Express. Alibaba requires bigger minimum order quantities but bigger discounts while Ali Express offers lower minimum order quantities but lesser discounts. Both these sites offer wide selection of products.
3. Sell Photos through app or websites.
If you have a phone and you love taking pictures, take some worthy ones because quality photos from your phone can be turn into cash. Check out apps like FOAP, Eyeem, Scootshoot, or Clashot. If you are a photographer, sell your professional photos to websites like Photo Shelter, Smugmug or Fotolia.
There are many similar opportunity that are offered from all over the globe. Many of us have tried them and became successful, while others failed.
