During this pandemic condition, that shocked the whole world and caused the world to slow down on almost all its activities, who wouldn’t love to earn some little extra cash on the side from an online side hustle. The lock-down all over the world has left us sitting down indoors doing almost nothing and people keep losing their jobs, which has left us with not many options, other than to find a way to start earning online as a side hustle which has become almost the only option we have.

You can be finding a way to pay off debt, perform a wedding or go on a world tour with your better half, a few extra $1000 every month is never too small when you getting it from an online side hustle, it’s just like the amount you will need to make your lifelong dreams come true. While your day job might contribute to paying off your essentials, freelance or side hustle can help you fill up your wallet with enough to take that leap you always wanted to make.

This might sound quite challenging, but believe me, it’s no the way you think it is. This is something we can do if we have time on our clock, in fact, there are people that have left their main jobs, as a result of the growth they have in the side hustle the started as a play which later became their primary source of income. Are you interested in doing the same? Count yourself lucky for coming across this post! There’s no investment involved. It all depends on how quickly you learn a new skill & how effectively you adopt. Here are four side hustles to look forward to this year.


As a result of COVID-19, situations have been very harsh on almost each and every one of us. The saddest thing about the whole situation is that there is a financial emergency going on around different corporate sectors of the world. this has resulted in a lot of people, losing their jobs and facing salary cut downs. In times like this, people tend to have debts, rents, and bills to pay, what will be the best option for us to use and solves all these problems for ourselves? The answer lies in freelance gigs.

Have you heard about the freelancing websites such as Fiverr, Freelancer or Upwork?

These are exciting platforms that can help you earn that few extra bucks off your gigs as a side hustle even as the pandemic is still on the rise. Yes, you heard me right. All you have to do to be eligible is just create a profile on all three of these platforms and if you’ve got a skill, make the best use of it. There are several online jobs available on these platforms and your talent is good enough to speak for itself. Do the jobs, create a portfolio, get better ratings and reviews from clients, and before you know it, you will quickly be making $1000 – $2000.

Whatever you do, make sure that you get positive ratings. It’s the only way clients will trust you. and be always truthfully about the service you describe.


Let say you’re not that skillful in any digital space that can enable you to establish a side hustle on any of the freelance websites, don’t have the creativity to create a website or sales copy. But, yet still want to earn $1000 easily from a side hustle online, if you can invest in creating a review website, then affiliate marketing is something you can do. All you have to do is select a niche, perform research on the products that are trending and selling hot in your niche, and then add these product affiliate links to your website. If you can’t afford to review these products on your own, then hire a professional writer who charges a minimal cost to write good reviews for you.

You can easily find these writers in abundance on platforms like Fiverr, Upwork, or Freelancer.

Delegate the task of writing a very good product review for you.

The tricky part of this business model is, we have a lot of eCommerce stores and affiliate networks like Clickbank, Jvzoo, Digistores that are selling and offering affiliates the opportunity of selling other people’s products. All you need to do is sign up on the platform of your choice, research, and pick a product, which you’ll become an affiliate to, market the product, and earn affiliate commissions, which you will get on these products. Sometimes the commission will be significantly low or high depending on the product you’re marketing. So my advice to you is that you search up for products that have high commission who are offering good affiliate profit rather than settle for products with low commission. To give you an example, if you become an affiliate partner of a high ticket commission product, you can easily make $1,500 – $2,000 a month from affiliate marketing.


Can you do anything that can gather a group of people with similar interests together online, things like singing, acting, it could be a comedy skit or do your physiques look good, there’s no better time than now to cash on that very ability. Become a social media Influencer, allow the world amid this pandemic to observe your talent. Once you’ve gained a significant amount of followers, there are plenty of ways how you can earn some cash from them.

Don’t feel like the kind of person who enjoys being the spotlight, and it’s totally fine.

Social media has become something very powerful in this day and time. You can use photography or your pet as the spotlight and create a powerful profile with a great number of followers. Once you’ve gathered enough followers, the next thing is to find the right way to monetize your profile. It’s not that good of hustle like the rest unless you have at least 100k followers, but you can easily make $500 – $1000 a month once on the roll.


This is a very good way that can really give you a decent amount of money as a side hustle online. This can earn you good money in less time, just by adopting the art of freelance copywriting. Copywriting is basically the art of converting the desired audience type through a sales copy page or a web copy page, convincing them that your business is the best there is in the market.

A good copywriter is one who can add value to your client’s life and convince them to purchase. Copywriting is the art of using words to convenience a group of audience to buy from your client.

There are several ways a good copywriter can create powerful hooks to convert the audience. There are hardline facts, statistical analysis, emotional story-telling, compelling business pitches, promises, and discounts.

On your part, you have to decide what type of copywriting do you want to become, and what your client product is all about.

Most times copywriters often, undercharge their clients which is the number one reason why they easily burn out too soon. If you’re planning to become a freelance copywriter, my advice to you is that you do a couple of gigs at a low pay rate, and once you have seen the success ratio of one of your copies, take the statistics from the client and use them to market your service at a better price. You can easily land a sales copy, web copy, or an email copy for an easy $500 – $1000. Just two of these jobs will be more than enough.


We have a lot of ways we can earn money online these days when it comes to the online market. As I have discussed and elaborated on just but a few of the handfuls of such ways, I can say I’m sure there are countless ways you can research more and explore them and you will easily find them. The Internet is full of opportunities, and people like you and I are already cashing upon it. When we are purchasing stuff online, aren’t we capable of redeeming it back? It’s just the mindset that stops us. Imagine there are thousands of businesses that are specifically focusing on the above-discussed ways and have established themselves as a successful brand.

If anyone has succeeded, you can also succeed.
