1. Becoming a Virtual Assistant
If you don’t have much experience in a specific field but still want to earn some extra money to pay off your student loans or earn some side money for your travelling, you could try to become a virtual assistant. Virtual assistants can do many things – fill up tables with data, check data, upload pictures, and products to a website and so on. It also gives you a great experience that you can use later on in your life. For example, you might learn how to work with a particular CMS like Prestashop. To find a job like this, check Facebook groups where people are looking for freelancers.
2. Starting a Graphic Design Business
If graphic design isn’t new to you, then you should try it at least as a side business and after some time – even make the main source of your income. Maybe, later on, you will even open up your own virtual advertising agency? Who knows, you might! But to start with, create a website with your portfolio and contact information. After that, start advertising and creating designs. Make sure you participate in all kinds of virtual contests, for example, the ones who ask you to create a logotype, like LogoContest.
3. Becoming an Influencer
We’ve talked a little about this topic at the very beginning of the article and you already know that it is definitely worth doing. But how do you start and what do you do? First of all, decide what kind of influencer you would like to be. What excites you? You might choose fashion, travel, makeup, technology reviews, lifestyle, and many others. Just make sure you don’t choose all of them at once because this way you won’t determine your target audience. After the decision has been made, turn off the laziness regime and dedicate to a consistent creation of content and remember that Instagram stories are very important (if you choose Instagram as your main platform).
4. Starting a Blog
Writing a blog by itself won’t make you any money. The most important part of converting your blog into a business is monetizing it. To do so, firstly you need to be very specific about your content and it’s consistency and write a perfect blog description for a better ranking of your blog.
After you already have quite some content to show off, you need to start advertising. It is a great idea to create profiles for your blog on social media, especially Facebook and Instagram. This way you will generate more traffic, reach more people, and it will be easier to keep them updated about your newest posts. And when you gain enough traffic and audience, you can start contacting all kinds of companies about advertisements – you can write reviews about specific products or services. If you have some funds and thinking what to do with 10k? then I must say start your blogging career.
5. Social Media Content Creation
As you probably already figured out, social media is not only very popular nowadays, but it can also be very profitable. No doubt it is an amazing space to create an organic advertisement, but we need to remember that somebody is getting paid to create those advertisements. That could be you. If you join any freelancer group on Facebook, you will see that people and companies are often looking for people to be Facebook page administrators. This means you would be answering to potential clients’ requests, referring them, and creating texts and visuals for posts.
6. Becoming a Youtube Vlogger
We all know that Youtube is popular. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that if you create a Youtube video and call yourself a vlogger, it will automatically generate money. You need to ask yourself if video creation is something that really interests you because it’s a really hard job in the long run. You will have to think about consistency, quality, relevance, filming, and editing the videos. The easiest path to start earning money as fast as possible is filming reviews – you just need to decide what kind. You will not start receiving money and products to review from companies at the beginning, but it will happen eventually if you stay consistent with your content.
