Here are eight surprising money-making skills that you can master in your spare time to start making money while you sleep tonight!

Become a Virtual Assistant

Offering your services as a virtual assistant is another great side business idea that can bring in extra money.

  • Businesses and entrepreneurs often need help with administrative tasks that don’t have anything to do with their core business.
  • They may want to outsource small tasks like organizing data, transcribing interviews, or even booking travel.
  • It might be easier for them to come to you versus hiring a full-time employee or getting an agency involved.
  • Because virtually everything can be done online, there isn’t a long list of things you can’t do as a virtual assistant.

Create an Online Course

The best way for newbies to start making money online is by creating an online course. It’s a more involved approach than simple blogging and you may need an existing audience who are interested in what you can teach them.

However, once it’s complete you can sell your course as an affiliate, offer it directly on your site or both.

Creating a video course has three primary benefits: 

1) it allows you to reach people across many platforms.

2) it’s unique content that works for multiple niches at once.

3) it solves a problem that everyone struggles with—finding time to create content consistently—without requiring anyone else to do so.

Freelance as a Writer

Freelance writing can be a great way to earn a living from home. If you’re an experienced writer, start posting articles online. If you’re not confident in your writing skills, offer to write content for others.

Some of these platforms will connect you with local businesses looking for help publishing content on their websites or developing marketing materials such as white papers or e-books.

Although many of these opportunities do require a fee, they are usually worth it when you see how much money and time can be saved by eliminating expenses such as office space and employee benefits.​

Sell Stock Photos

Sell Stock Photos

Believe it or not, you can make money from taking photos.

Sites like iStockphoto and Shutterstock let amateur and professional photographers upload their best shots for sale on a variety of licensing plans. If you're looking to invest more time in your photography hobby, look into these sites that pay you for your photos! 

This isn't a get-rich-quick method by any means, but if done right it could be a great way to spend some time and make some extra cash.

Invest in Real Estate

If you have a safe savings account with money saved up, consider investing in real estate. If you’re not already financially savvy, it’s recommended that you find a professional to help steer you in the right direction.

Becoming a landlord is relatively simple and could pay off for years to come. If your funds are tied up in more traditional investments like stocks or bonds, diversifying into real estate might help reduce your risk while also potentially providing higher returns.

And don’t worry if you have no idea how to make an offer—getting started can be as easy as contacting local property managers who deal with these issues on a daily basis.

Sell on Etsy

Etsy is a great place for entrepreneurs looking to start a small business. It’s no secret that crafty DIY projects sell—especially if you can get your products in front of hipsters.

Start with things you already have lying around, like old t-shirts or thrift store paintings, and create cute accessories and gifts from them (like purses or framed art). If you’re crafty and creative, Etsy is an easy way to make money doing what you love. However, it's not as simple as opening an account on Etsy and hoping for the best — there are some steps that need to be taken first in order for your account to be profitable.

Get Paid to Watch Ads

A number of companies will pay you to watch ads that appear on a website or mobile app. Companies like NexRep, PaymentWall, and UserTesting will pay you up to $10 per hour to watch ads while you’re browsing online.

If you watch most of these videos in order, you could rack up several hundred dollars in a few hours. Just be sure that you’re only watching videos on websites relevant to your interests, so that video advertisements can inform your content strategy and help drive more viewers back towards your channel.

Start an Amazon FBA Business

It takes time, energy and skill to build an Amazon business from scratch, but if you already have a product (or something similar), it’s incredibly easy to scale and make money.

Amazon FBA is short for Fulfilled by Amazon which means that Amazon handles all aspects of storage, shipping, customer service and more – you only have to focus on getting your products online and in stock. Once that’s done, you simply wait for your products to be sold – when they are, Amazon will tell you how much you made! It’s one of my favorite ways to build passive income.
