How to Bring in Extra Income from Home with These Flexible Side Gigs
We all know how hard it is to make a living working 9-5 especially when there is no real security. You’ll be working for a company for several years, and they’ll lay you off without any consideration for you or your family. Therefore, they say business can be very ruthless so you must always stay flexible while moving forward. The good news is that many people are starting to explore job opportunities online because this will connect you to a wider choice of jobs. I remember when I first got started online and how hard it was to make real money, but things have rapidly changed with the introduction of freelance portals. You know have several hubs that connect you with others looking to hire people for niche specific employment. All you must do is take some time and look at the jobs available to you. With that said,
I have come up with six-side gigs that you can consider for the time being, and start to come up with a game plan. Skim through some of the jobs available and start applying to them. You’ll get a better idea into the type of experience they require so you can get the right skill set required. Let’s get started and your feedback will be appreciated in the comment box below.
If you are an expert in your niche with years of experience, then you can focus on providing consulting to others getting started. This has always been lucrative because others getting started don’t want to spend time learning what others can already show them. Therefore, experience is important because people will only pay for the best advice. For example, imagine someone is trying to come up with a social media marketing plan and don’t know where to start. As some with experience, you can provide them with a step-by-step game plan on how to get things done right. This will save them a lot of money because they won’t have to find out what’s working and what’s not on there own.
Many consulting companies have made enormous money coming up with marketing campaigns for others. They show them how to choose the right keywords, ad networks, and even content to engage readers.
Online marketplace is a great way to make money online because they connect you to sellers from all over the world. I could make a lot of money by simply being the middle man between transactions. I would promote a product and then have it shipped over to them directly from a supplier. You just must find that one item in high demand to get started, and trust me there is no shortage on eBay.
I would recommend starting with a product you know and then finding creative ways to market it to those who are not so familiar with eBay. You’ll be getting it for cheap from eBay so having the right people buy the items can make you a lot of money going forward. Head over to eBay.com to get started and skim through the various categories available to you.

Platforms like Fiverr.com and Freelance.com have made a lot of money connecting people who are looking for written content. The reason this has grown in popularity is because Google puts a lot more emphasis on content and quality. People who can’t or don’t want to write high quality content will pay you a lot of money for some well-written content pieces. With that said,
You should focus on finding gigs based around your niche, and focus on finding employers that will pay top dollar for high quality content. If you can locate both, then you can make a lot of money writing content for other people within different niches. However, you must make sure you have the right type of experience and can add value to the bottom-line.
Social Media Marketing
Many companies who are busy don’t have time to manage their social media campaigns. Therefore, they will hire third-party people to get the job done for them. For you to be able to secure such a job, you’ll have to know a lot about social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Google +, etc.
These jobs don’t tend to be time consuming since you are sharing once a week for the company which is why it’s important to have several contracts at once. Head over to freelance.com to find out more about social media marketing opportunities.
If you have read my other content, then you know how much I focus on CPA, CPC and CPA marketing. I also focus a lot on selling products for a commission which can end up driving enormous profit to your bottom-line. With that said, this can be a great side gig because you can automate the entire process once you know what works and what doesn’t.
Start to promote products within your niche and find creative ways to engage the right type of people you’ll be interested in buying these items through your website. I’ve noticed that if you write high quality content and have a huge following, then it’ll be easier to get people to buy affiliate products through your website. Do some research online because you’ll find a lot of information on this topic that’ll help you get started.
Some companies starting out will need your help with testing products so will ask you to join a focus group. This is a very uncommon way to make some decent money however as a side gig, you can’t go wrong taking part in focus groups. If you do a quick search online you’ll find many taking place around your area, but I would focus on some online. The ones online will ask you to review products after testing or even games after playing them for 30 days looking for bugs or glitches.
Make sure you join credible focus groups like those which pay after project is complete. I would stay away from medical focus groups that ask you to test a medicine because some can be detrimental to your health.
