Side Hustle Ideas – #1 Airbnb experiences
This is probably one of my favourite side hustle ideas.
I know that we’ve probably all heard about Airbnb, right?
Well…this isn’t renting out your home… this is called Airbnb Experiences and it doesn’t require you to rent your space.
I remember when my sister and I went to Italy together we did a whole bunch of Airbnb Experiences.
Basically how it works is that you post an experience in your hometown for people to pay money to be a part of.
My sister and I did cooking classes and we went to somebody’s house to learn how to make pasta.
We cooked it up and even had it with some wine.
We paid like 50 or 60 pounds to be a part of this experience.
So there’s actually some pretty good money depending on what it is that you want to do.
You could do bike tours, hiking tours, or even a food tour.
You know your city or area best and if it’s frequently visited, you could put an experience together for people. So what I would recommend that you do is to research Airbnb Experiences. Get some ideas that you could create an experience around for people coming to your town and then put it up on Airbnb.
It’s a phenomenal way to make some extra cash.
Side Hustle Ideas – #2 Virtual Services
The second way is to post your virtual services.
There are things that you’re already good at.
Whether it be writing, editing or social media posting or social media commenting.
Or maybe you’re in graphic design or website design.
Think of any virtual work that you could do for other business owners.
Then you can go to any of these 3 places that I feel are the best to post your services.
#1 – Facebook groups that have a community of people that would find your services useful.
#2 – Fiverr.com
I’ve used Upwork and I really like them.
And if you’re not sure what other people could hire you for, go to Fiverr or go to Upwork and look at what other people are getting paid to do to get some really good ideas.
Side Hustle Idea Ideas – #3 Post services on the NextDoor App
The third way to make some extra cash is to post your services on the Nextdoor app.
This is a new app that I’ve discovered and apparently I’m probably the last person on planet earth to discover it.
It feels that way when I talk about it because everyone I’ve talked to is on the Next-door app and I’m just learning about it.
So anyways, Nextdoor is an app you can download from your app store.
You basically create a profile and you put the street you live on and it connects you with your other neighbours in your neighbourhood and surrounding neighbourhoods.
It’s almost like a neighbourhood forum.
You can definitely get sucked into it but I love it because I’ve been able to get some really good recommendations and suggestions from my fellow neighbours.
What’s great about it is that you can post any services that you are available to do for anybody in your surrounding community and they get notified.
It’s a really good way if you maybe have a free weekend to pick up some extra cash.
Side Hustle Ideas – #4 Photography or Videography services
The fourth way to make some extra cash is offer your photography services or videography services.
Now you might be saying to yourself, “Well Gem I am not a photographer. I’m not a professional videographer, who would hire me for their services?”
And with that mindset, you’re right. No one would.
However, let’s change the mindset a little bit and let me help you with that.
So there are many people in your local hometown that have an influential brand.
Think of anyone that’s using social media right now to get their services out there.
Maybe they’re in Aesthetics or a hairstylist or a real estate professional.
