When You Need a Side Hustle for Quick Extra Cash

When You Need A Side Hustle For Some Fast Extra Cash. As In Yesterday!

side hustle, quick cash, extra cashSometimes you just need a side hustle so you can make some extra cash fast. Like yesterday! Some unexpected bills, a car repair, an upcoming vacation you’re dying to take, money to invest in your startup or blog, the reasons are endless but the realities are the same. You need to bring in some fast cash. I’m here with some ideas to help you earning side hustle money – FAST!

Get Paid For Your Opinion

Survey Junkie is a free website where you get paid for your opinions and is a great side hustle. You can take quick surveys online anywhere, anytime and from any device. Who doesn’t love that?! Take advantage of nap time, downtime or anytime to make some extra money! The surveys add up quickly and you can make up to $10-20 per hour giving them your honest opinion! Try Survey Junkie and earn $10 just for registering today! It’s so easy to get started and earn money right away with Survey Junkie!

PRO TIP: I highly recommend registering with several paid survey companies for a few reasons. It’s good to have more than one company sending you potential surveys so you have several survey options to choose from every week. It’s also good to do your own comparison to see which kinds of surveys you enjoy more and which companies pay the best per survey. Registering with just one company could leave you with fewer options and less of a steady income. I would start with Survey Junkie and then go down the list and after a few weeks you can filter some out.

Affiliate Marketing

I already know what you’re thinking. You don’t like selling and I feel you. Affiliate Marketing is more like recommending or promoting rather than selling. Plus, Affiliate Marketing is one of the easiest ways to make passive income from your blog or niche site. I took Michelle Shroeder-Gardner’s Making Sense Of Affiliate Marketing Course where she shares exactly how she makes $50,000 per month with affiliate marketing.

Once I took her course I was making money from my blog within a few weeks and I’ve already paid for the cost of her course many times over. I can highly recommend the course and the access you get to Michelle herself in her private Tailwind Tribe and Facebook group which are for her students only. Making Sense Of Affiliate Marketing is a no brainer and I wish I had taken it sooner!

How To Make Your First Affiliate Sale in 24 Hours! This is an e-book from House Of Brazen. And I need to be honest with you, while I didn’t make my first affiliate sale in 24 hours with this course, it is entirely possible to do so. I had already been making affiliate sales but I wanted to take this course to learn more about affiliate marketing and in doing that realized what a great side hustle this could be. You just have to be motivated and do exactly as she says. And the best part about it is that you don’t even need a blog to make money with affiliate sales with her course! And she only charges $40 which is a bargain and you could make it back in your first week with her Ebook – grab your copy here!

Share A Sale is one of the affiliate marketing networks where I find affiliates to promote. Signing up is free and once you’re approved you can get started with them this week! It would help to have taken Michelle’s Course or How To Make Your First Affiliate Sale In 24 Hours before you sign up with them so you’ll know how to put the power of Share A Sale to work for you.

Host For Airbnb

Become an Airbnb host! Renting out your spare room or create a spare room to rent on Airbnb. A friend of mine recently went out of town and opted to stay in an Airstream trailer that was being rented through Airbnb. The couple wanted to add another income stream but didn’t have a spare room to rent out so they purchased a used Airstream trailer, fixed it up themselves,  parked it on their property and listed it on Airbnb. It was just adorable and created a nice second income for that young couple.

Sell Your Stuff

I don’t know about you but my closet is FULL of clothes I don’t wear. Many of them even still have the tags on them! I recently did a closet clean out and came up with a bunch of clothes to sell. I listed them on Poshmark and voila! I’ve already sold a few pieces here and there. The app makes it so simple to snap a picture and create the listing and they calculate the shipping for you and make it SO easy to sell your extra clothes! Poshmark definitely gets my thumbs up or the side hustle win!

Wanna get paid for doing something we already do for free? Try driving Instacart! What is that, you say?!

Ramping up is also quick and easy and you could be earning money this week! Then app even helps you track your earnings so you can make sure you’re coverage your gas, car insurance and expenses of running your car.
