10 Awesome Side Hustles You Can Start Today
Part time Social Media Evaluator
If you find yourself cruising social media for indefinite lengths of time anyway, why not get paid to do it?

Advertise with a Sign
A company in Bellevue Washington actually pays people to advertise for brands, by walking around densely-populated areas with tablets displaying messages attached to their backpacks.
Nomad Technologies will pay you to walk around with advertising on an iPad, not the usual sandwich board type sign that’s more common in this industry.

Manage Social Media for Small Businesses
Many small businesses need a social media manager and simply don’t have the time nor the expertise to be constantly posting on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, SnapChat or Twitter.
Take it upon yourself to contact local businesses and offer up your services for a contracted monthly fee. This is an easy way to make money no matter where you live.
PintAssist owner Sloane Benford started her Pinterest marketing business as a side gig, and happily, it’s grown into a full time venture, whose clients are mostly small business owners.
Start a Blog
The typical reaction to someone who says “I’m starting a blog” is usually pessimism (been there).
But blogging can be a very lucrative side gig, that for many greatly exceeds financial expectations. Keep in mind, that making money with a blog can take time, so patience is an absolute must.
Check out some awesome posts online, that will guide you through the process of building a new blog.
Become a Personal Chef
If you can cook, why not rent out your talents to families or singles who simply don’t have time, or don’t want to cook after work?
Niche-ing your services, say with a vegan menu, or kid friendly meals, could very well make finding customers a cinch!
Become a personal shopper
Want to shop for others? You could easily become a personal shopper. If you live in an urban metropolis with concentrated wealth, then personal shopping services are in high demand in your area. Browse the web and other online resources such as ThumbTack to find people looking for personal shoppers. (US based applicants only.)
Do some freelance writing
If you have any talent for writing, you could write articles for other people. You could help out other bloggers or even become a ghost writer for a well-known author. Use sites like Freelancer, and Upwork and others to advertise your services.
Become a personal trainer
If you enjoy being in the gym, and helping others meet their fitness goals, personal training just might be your thing.
Musically inclined? Why not teach others to play the piano, saxophone, or whatever it is that you excel at musically?
Take some great photos
Have a talent for photography?
With all of the technology that we have right now, your fantastic photographs could make you some serious coin!
Starting an Instagram account for your photography, and turning them into cold hard cash isn’t as difficult as you might think. There are also places online where you can actually sell your photographs, like Shutterstock, Adobe Stock, Smug Mug and Can Stock Photo.
