INTRODUCTION TO FREE BUSINESSES & SITE HUSTLES
How are you all? So, I have a big artical for you today because I’m going to tell you about a hundred, yes, a hundred different businesses and side jobs that you can start and make money with right away. Free, that’s right. No hidden fees, no hidden startup costs. You will only need yourself and things you already have, like a computer or a phone, to start these. Yes, many of these businesses and side hustles work all over the world, not just in the United States. And if you’ve read artical about side jobs and business ideas before, some of the ones on my list might surprise you because I’m going to show you some that I’ve never seen another YouTuber talk about. But that’s not all. I’m also going to show you how you can get something else for free. If you take a moment out of your busy day to like and subscribe to my video, it really helps me out, so thank you so much if you do. So, yes, once you’ve earned my eternal gratitude, we can move on to the real reason you’re here, which is to find new money-making business ideas or side hustle ideas that you can start for free.
Examples Of Popular Free Businesses & Side Hustles
So, this is how it works, right? I know that a lot of people are probably thinking, “Well, Sarah, why do you have a hundred different ideas on your list?” Doesn’t that seem a bit much? Well, I have so many because I know that each person who watches this will be different. People will have different skills, hobbies, and goals, which is why I’ve made such a long list. So, for example, I know that some people who are watching this don’t want to get rich. Instead, they want to make a little extra money each month by doing simple tasks on their phone. For those people, my first side hustle idea, which is to be a hired mystery shopper, might be perfect. As a “mystery shopper,” your job is to check out a store to make sure it is running well. There are different mystery shopping gig apps in different countries. For example, in the United States, Field Agent pays between $3 and $20 per gig.
So, one job on Field Agent might be to go to a grocery store and take pictures of the shelves and food prices to make sure that certain vegetables are in stock. Your audit helps the grocery store figure out if they are ordering enough vegetables and if they have enough workers to keep the vegetable section stocked. As you can see, a lot of people have started their own mystery shopping businesses and now make extra money each month by doing gigs like this while they shop for their own things, which is pretty cool. Or you might like this next easy way to make money. Task Rabbit is a free website that lets you find clients for physical work and practical skills projects.
It is available in a number of countries. And being a line stander is one of the jobs you can do for other people. Yes, it’s as easy as that. You just have to stand in line for clients. Line standers charge between $15 and $35 per hour, which can add up quickly. For example, one person who stood in line for a few days to get an iPhone 5 on launch day for a client made $1,500. But on the other hand, I know that many of you who are watching don’t want extra money; you want full-time money that will let you quit your job. So, if that’s you, I’ll have businesses and side hustles like this one, starting a YouTube channel, that will work for you. If you already have a phone with a good camera, a microphone, and a computer, you can download free software like this and start making videos right away. As you can see, Ad Sense on top of my videos has made me over $20,000 in the last 28 days. If you have an idea for a YouTube channel, there’s nothing stopping you from starting it today, for free.
So, if that’s you, I’ll also have full-time businesses that use my practical skills, like a dog walking business. There are free apps like this one, Rover, that let you find clients who need things done for their pets, like taking their dogs for a walk. If you go to Reddit, you’ll see that many people have quit their jobs and become full-time dog walkers thanks to this free app, which is really cool. But I also know that for some people who are watching this, this is the last thing they want. They don’t want to have to work for money. Instead, they want their new business or hustle to bring in money on its own. So, if this is you, I’ll also put businesses on this list, like how to start a free merch by Amazon store and make money by uploading pictures of T-shirts to sell. And this is a business that people who have been reading my blog for a long time will know, so do you see this T-shirt here? Using the Jungle Scout estimator tool, we can estimate that this T-shirt has sold over 6,900 T-shirts in the past year. Of course, more T-shirts have been sold around major holidays like Christmas.
Well, as we’ll see in a moment, at its current price of $17.95, the person who made this T-shirt gets a commission of $3.69 per shirt sold. This means that they’ve passively made about $25,000 this year from just this one T-shirt. So, quickly, here’s how this scam works. First of all, you do have to sign up for Amazon’s merch programme. Luckily, there are a lot of free videos on YouTube that show you how to make a great application. But yes, once you sign up for Amazon’s merch programme and are accepted, like I was, all you have to do is come here, choose which of their products you want to customise, and then upload a picture or slogan that you’ve made. You can also set the price of your product. For example, if I set the price of my T-shirt to $17.95, you can see that the commission rate per sale is $3.69. You can also choose your favourite product colours, like your favourite T-shirt colours, to print your design on. After that, you come back to the product page for your T-shirt and fill out some details, like a title, some bullet points, and a product description, and then you save it.
Once your T-shirt has been reviewed and approved by Amazon, it will have its own product listing that customers can find when they are looking for gifts for friends or family. The cool thing is that if someone comes to you and says they want to buy a T-shirt, Amazon’s print shop will put your picture on a T-shirt, not you. Then, they’ll put it in a box and send it to the customer. They’ll get the money from the customer, take out their production costs, and give you a commission on the rest. As you can see, the business is very passive. And if you already have a design app like Canva that lets you make these kinds of T-shirt designs, you can start this business for free. In the world of E-commerce, this kind of business is called “print on demand.” And if you want to know how I and other people make passive income every day from print on demand, you should download my free ebook, “The 6 Steps That Six Figure Online Stores Follow to Make Over $10,000 a Month.” You can find a link to download my free ebook in the description of the video below. But, well, let’s get back to the video. As you can see, we will talk about a wide range of businesses and side jobs. So, even if some of the things on this list don’t interest you, I really think you should keep watching, because there’s a good chance at least one of them will.
Etsy Passive Income Digital Download Business Ideas
So, let’s keep going. And check out some of the free businesses you can start on Etsy that can bring in money every month. Etsy is a place where people can buy and sell things online. You can sell vintage crafts or things you make by hand on Etsy. And each month, hundreds of millions of people visit Etsy. So, most sellers on Etsy don’t have to market or advertise the items they list here. Instead, they can just take advantage of the people who already come here to buy things. Etsy is cool for us because you can sell digital pictures you make yourself. It doesn’t have to be something you can hold in your hands. One free business you can start on this site that many people have done well with is making and selling posters that people can download.
So, you’re here to see this popular poster that you can download? Well, you’re not getting a real poster when you buy this. You’re buying a picture that you can then print yourself on poster paper. Yes, text and quote posters like this are very popular, but if you’re watching and you’re a talented artist, this is great for you because art posters also sell very well. So, let’s look at this beautiful set of posters. We can guess how much money this has made. As you can see, there have been 2,624 reviews of the store. This poster image set has gotten 273 reviews, which is about 10% of the store’s total reviews. This probably means that it also makes up about 10% of the store’s sales. Well, as you can see, this store has made 68,727 sales, so 10% of that is 6,872 sales. So, if we multiply that number by the total sale price of $13 and 56 cents, we can guess that this beautiful set of downloadable poster images has made over $90,000 in sales, which is amazing. And this $90,000 would have been very, very passive because when a customer buys a digital item, Etsy automatically sends them a download link and then sends you the money the customer paid, less their processing fees.
So, your Etsy business runs itself without you having to do anything. So, if you have an image editing app like Canva, which is my favourite, you can make your own quote posters and sell them on Etsy. Now, Etsy usually charges 20 cents per item listing, but if you click on the link I’ll put in the video description, you can get a special coupon for 40 free item listings if you open a new Etsy store. Yay. Etsy is a great place to start a business selling digital products, and this is just one example. Yep. There are a lot of stores that make and sell different kinds of digital products, like clip art stores, like this one, which focuses on selling one-time picture clip art downloads and has been very successful. Other stores like to make cards like affirmation cards that people can print out and use to feel good. And some shops like to sell things like lunchbox notes. Parents print these on cardboard, cut them out, and put them in their kids’ lunch boxes as a fun way to make their day at school more interesting. You could also start a business where people can download stickers. People print these right onto sticker sheets and then make their own stickers at home. Or, you could make downloadable quiz sheet packs that people can download and print out for parties.
You could also make downloadable game packs, like scavenger hunt card kits that parents can print out and hide around the house for their kids to play, or a downloadable greeting card picture. People like to buy these so they can print them out and use them to make their own handmade cards. And, of course, you can make even more money with any of these businesses by not just selling one product, but by putting together multiple products into a store. If you want to see examples of stores doing this and how anyone, even if they aren’t artists, can make downloadable products like these to sell on Etsy by using my favourite graphics at Canva, I suggest you watch this video. But I do know that an Etsy business isn’t for everyone because not everyone likes to be creative. Instead, some people have great skills in the real world. And so,
Earn $63/Hour With A Practical Skill Business
Why not sell your skills to other people and make $63 an hour? So, to show this, let’s look at laundry and ironing. If you’re good at these, apps like this one, Sudshare, make it easy to find clients to whom you can sell this service. A lot of people on Reddit do this as a side job and make between $15 and $20 an hour. People like how flexible it is and how you can choose when to take on client work. And if you’re good at fixing things, Task Rabbit is a good place to go. Here, you can find people who need help with practical skills around the house. In most cities, it’s free to sign up and get work through this site. Task Rabbit takes its fees out of the money paid by the customer, so there are no costs up front. So, if you know how to fix things around the house, you could work as a handyman. You can also use apps like these to start a variety of businesses, like a painting business, a furniture assembly business, a sewing and clothing repair business, a gardening and lawn mowing business, or a cleaning business. And if you are good at more than one of these, you can combine them to make more money. From user experiences and reviews on Reddit, you can see that some people have quit their day jobs to run businesses they built on Task Rabbit full-time, which is awesome. But maybe you’re watching this and thinking, “Well, Sarah, I don’t need to quit my job, I just like a hustle that can make me some extra money on the side,” in which case,
Side Hustles That Pay You To Shop
Why not get paid $1,000 plus a week to go shopping? So, if you want to make money by shopping, there are a few things you can do. One thing is that apps like Shopkick let you scan barcodes. Stores like supermarkets have deals with these apps, so you can scan barcode prices in store while shopping for groceries. When you do this, you earn points in the app that you can then trade in for PayPal cash or gift cards. It’s a simple way to make some extra cash while doing your regular shopping. You can even scan barcodes while shopping for groceries for clients. Because apps like Instacart make it possible to get paid to shop for groceries for other people. A lot of people on Reddit have quit their part-time jobs, and some have even quit their full-time jobs, to do this hustle. They love how flexible it is and how it can fit into their schedule. Several people on Reddit are making more than $1,000 a week with this app. And if you are fit and good at lifting heavy things, you could choose to be a general shopper instead. You could use an app like Task Rabbit, which lets you shop for more than just groceries, to do this. So, there’s a cool video on YouTube where someone used a GoPro to film themselves doing a Task Rabbit shopping gig. If you want to see what it’s like and decide if it’s right for you, check it out. But yes, I know that these aren’t the right hustles for many people watching because they want to make money without leaving their house. So, if you are that person,
Start A Rental Business To Earn $1,000+ Passively
Then maybe you’d rather rent out your things to make extra money at home. Yes, there are many ways to make money for free by renting out things you already have. So, if you have a house with a driveway, you can list it on free parking apps like JustPark and rent it out as a parking space. Or, if you have a guest room that you don’t use, you can rent it out on Airbnb to make some extra money. Or, if you have a pool, you can use the free app Swimply to rent it out. Or, if you own a boat, you can use the free app Boatsetter to rent it out and make extra money. But yes, it’s understandable that most people don’t own boats, and you know what? I don’t either, but I do own a car, which is something many people do. You can also rent out your car on free apps like Tourer to make extra money every month. I also have free space around my house, which is something a lot of people have. So, if you have room in your closet, garage, or backyard, you could list it as long-term storage space on free apps like Neighbor. A lot of people use it to make extra money every month without doing anything. One Reddit user said, “It’s the easiest $1,000 a month I’ve ever made.” But, as I said at the beginning of this video, I know that many of the people who are watching this don’t just want to make some extra cash. They want to make money full-time. So, if you are that person and you love animals as much as I do,
Business Ideas That Pay You To Play With Animals
Then maybe you should start a business that pays you to play with them. Yep. Remember Rover? This is the app that lets you pick up clients for pet related jobs. Most countries have their own versions of this app, so for example, here in New Zealand, ours is called, Pawshake, and I’ve used this a lot. But yes, if you want to start an animal pet business, find your local version of this app and then create a free account and then choose which services you would like to offer. For example, on Rover, if you have experience grooming animals, you can become a professional pet groomer. Or if you have a yard, you can turn it into an in-home doggy daycare for social dogs. People drop off their dogs to you and let them play in your yard while they’re at work, rather than sit at home by themselves. I’ve used this for my dog, Starbuck, and he loves them. Although actually, some dogs are like cats and quite like being at home by themselves napping, which is why you could instead open up a drop-in business where you pop into clients’ homes throughout the day, to check in on their pets, fill up their water bowl, give them breakfast or dinner, and you can earn additional money by watching them overnight as a pet sitter. Or if you would rather that pets come to you, you can let cute doggo sleep on your bed while their owners go out of town and open up an in-home boarding service. And of course, you could also choose to offer multiple services, not just one, it’s up to you. On Reddit, lots of people have quit their jobs to now run their new pet businesses. Woo hoo.
Start One Of These FREE Ecommerce Businesses
But maybe you like digital businesses better. And if so, that’s fine. So, why not start a free business that sells things online? Yes, starting an E-commerce business was the opposite of starting a business for free. You had to buy a website and pay for marketing and advertising for it. But because technology has improved, these costs are no longer necessary, and you can now start an E-commerce business for free. Yup. And starting a Redbubble business is one way to do that. Now, my long-time subscribers will know what Redbubble is, but most of my new viewers won’t, so I’ll have to quickly explain it to them. I really appreciate your patience, so thank you very much. So, yes, Redbubble is a large online store. Tens of millions of customers visit it every month, and it sells hundreds of millions of dollars worth of goods on behalf of people like my viewers and pays them commissions.
So, you see all these stickers, all these phone cases, and all these T-shirts that Redbubble is selling? Well, none of the pictures that Redbubble is selling were made by them. Instead, anyone in the world with a PayPal account can sign up for Redbubble and then upload their own pictures or slogans to the site. Then, you give your picture or slogan a title, some relevant keywords, and a short description. You then choose which of Redbubble’s products your picture or slogan looks best on and choose to sell those products. Then you put it away. Redbubble will now make a digital version of the products you made and store it in their database. It will also automatically create product listings for those items on its website so that its 5 million or more customers can find them and buy them. Then, when someone comes to Redbubble and says, “I want to buy a T-shirt,” one of their print shops will put your design on a blank T-shirt, package it, and send it to the buyer. They’ll take out their production and shipping costs and then pay you a commission for the picture you uploaded. It’s a lot like opening a merch by Amazon store. Both are print-on-demand businesses that you don’t have to do much work for. Many of the people who watch my videos on Redbubble went on to open their own stores.
Congratulations to everyone who did something. And don’t forget, if you’re watching this video and want to learn more about how I and others make passive income every day with print on demand, be sure to download my free ebook, “The 6 Steps That Six Figure Online Stores Follow to Make Over $10,000 a Month.” You can find a link to download my free ebook in the description of this video. But, well, let’s get back to the video. The coolest thing about this business is that it can be duplicated to make more money. Yes, there are other print-on-demand sites like Zazzle and Teepublic that work the same way. So, once you’ve opened a Redbubble business, you can do what some of my viewers have done and make more money by copying it onto these other websites and opening stores there to make more. You can also go to Etsy and start a free print-on-demand business. Now, this is a bit more complicated, but if you want to try it for yourself, I have a free step-by-step guide on this channel that shows you how to set up a free T-shirt store on Etsy with no startup costs or fees. People who watched my Etsy video tutorials and then opened their own successful Etsy print on demand stores has been amazing to see.
Everyone should be praised for taking action. Your results give me hope. You can also start an E-commerce flipping business for free because eBay gives you 250 free listings each month. You can come here and list some extra items you have around the house, and then use the money you make to go to thrift stores and garage sales to find cheap items that you can sell on eBay for a higher price. There are a lot of channels on YouTube that teach about this business. You can also do this on Poshmark, which is a free app. This is for people who like to buy clothes at thrift stores and sell them again. If you want some advice on how to start this business, there is an interview on YouTube with a seller who makes over $100,000 a year selling used clothes on Poshmark. That’s pretty cool. But if you’re at home and thinking, “Hey, Sarah, I like cars better than clothes,” you might want to look at the next businesses and side hustles on this list.
Start A Business That Pays You To Drive
Yep. If you like to drive and would like to get paid for it, you can always be an Uber driver or an Uber Eats driver. And if you go to Reddit, you’ll see that some people make a good living as an Uber driver and an Uber Eats driver full-time. Most people think of these choices, but if you’re creative, you have a lot more to choose from. For example, if you have a van or waggon, you could start your own moving business and pick up clients using the free Dolly delivery app. Or, if your day job requires you to drive around a lot, you can get paid to wrap your car in ads and earn hundreds of dollars each month without doing anything. Or, if you don’t have a car but still want to get paid to drive, you can become a private driver who takes people where they need to go in their own cars. But yes, let’s move on to the next list.
Become The Next Internet NFT Millionaire
And since I’m not a finance YouTuber who has become a self-proclaimed NFT expert, I can’t make videos showing you how to become the next NFT internet millionaire. I wish I could, though, because I think I could make a lot of money with AdSense. But I can tell you that if you want to try to become the next NFT millionaire, you can sell the NFTs you make on OpenSea for free. Only their fees are taken out of the sale. There are no costs to sell them right away. But if you just want to make money from NFTs and don’t need to be the next internet millionaire, there are a lot of ways you can use this trend to start a business that does well. For example, you can start a freelance business as a marketer, programmer, or artist on Fiverr. Right now, there is a lot of work for freelancers on this site that has to do with NFT. People are buying NFT advertisement gigs, Discord server gigs that create NFT discord servers for people to advertise and sell their NFTs on, gigs made by artists who draw or paint NFTs for people to resell, and gigs made by artists who will make animated gift NFTs that their clients can resell. So, if you are an artist who wants to get started on Fiverr, this could be a great chance to do so.
Earn Passive Money With Your Art
You could also start one of the businesses below to make money online without doing much work. All of this is because of this site, Creative Market. Artists can sell digital products they make on this site. Putting them up for sale is free. Fees are taken out of the sale, so there are no costs up front. Some popular things you can make and sell on here are brushes for popular art apps like Procreate and Instagram templates that people can edit themselves in Canva. You can also make custom fonts and patterns that people with print-on-demand businesses buy from you to print on their products. If you don’t care if the money you make is passive or not, you can apply to be an artist for hire on their job board, Dribbly, where high-paying freelance art jobs are posted. But of course, drawing, painting, and making designs aren’t the only ways to be creative. Some creative people use writing as another way to say what they want to say.
Start A Writing Business
So, if that’s you, maybe the next free businesses and hustles on my list will be more interesting to you. First up is writing articles. Textbroker is a well-known website that is available in North America and Europe. You can sign up to be an article writer there. When you sign up, you take a writing test, and your pay per word is based on how well you did. So, if you get five stars, you get paid five cents per word. This means that if you write a thousand words, you get paid $50. I don’t know about you, but I write very quickly. I could do that in less than an hour, so you would be making $50 an hour, which is pretty cool. I also have friends who sell their novels on Kindle and make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.
Since it’s free to sell anything on this site, why not give it a try if you’ve already written a book or a novel? And of course, I can’t forget to mention that you can start an essay writing business for free. Now, it’s easy to see why this is so controversial among writers. An article on it on HuffPost talked about how it’s an easy and profitable business for good writers to get into because there aren’t enough of them doing it. However, the article also talked about how some people buy essays for good reasons and others for not so good reasons. So, it’s up to you if you want to start your own essay writing business or not.
Get Paid Up To $22/Hour To Teach Online
But if education is really important to you, you might be more interested in the next free businesses and hustles on my list. The first is to work as a tutor online. One easy way to do this is to use Cambly. Students come here and post that they need a tutor right away. If you want to tutor them, you can choose to do so, and you’ll be connected right away. So there’s no need to advertise or market because you choose clients when it’s convenient for you. You can also use School Solver to help you with your homework. It works the same way. Students post questions, and when you answer them, you get paid. And if you like teaching English, VIPKID is one of the best websites for tutors to teach English to Chinese students. It pays well and is reliable.
If you look at Reddit, you can see that you have a lot of choices. Some people teach English full-time, while others do it as a flexible part-time job. But if you’re still in school and working on your degree, you might prefer to take notes on contract for the classes you’re already taking. You could make $470 per class for which you take notes. This company sells these notes to other students. Or, you can choose to list the notes you take for sale on Nexus Notes and get a 50% cut of each sale. So, let’s move on to some other businesses that I know from my own experience are in high demand. And also,
Earn Passive Income Selling Photos & Videos
Is by selling photos and videos and making and editing them so I can make money. You’ve probably already noticed that this video has a lot of beautiful stock footage. Companies like mine and YouTubers like me buy these every day. So, if you are already a photographer and have some good photos, why not put them up for sale on sites like Shutterstock? It’s free to list them here, and every time someone downloads one, you get a cut. It’s a very low-effort way to make money. You can also list and sell stock videos if you are a videographer. And if you know how to fly drones, you can start a business selling drone stock videos, which can be very profitable because drone footage sells for the highest prices. But if you are more interested in editing photos and videos, you could start a freelance business on Fiverr. I hire people to do freelance work on Fiverr all the time.
I’m always looking for Photoshop editors, video editors, audio engineers, visual effects engineers, and people who can make Adobe Premier templates. You don’t have to pay anything to list your services for sale on Fiverr. The fees are taken out of the customer’s payment, so you don’t have to pay anything up front. The key is to make a good impression so that people will choose you. If you want to start one of these businesses for yourself, you should watch a really interesting video in which a top Fiverr seller gives tips and tricks for making your gigs more likely to sell. I also buy transcriptions for my videos all the time. Yes, because I have a funny accent from New Zealand and say some words in an odd way. I always buy transcriptions for the videos I make. And I go to the website Rev.com to buy them. They are always looking for new freelance video transcribers to join their team so they can transcribe videos like mine. Even though this isn’t a hustle that will make you a millionaire overnight, a lot of people like it. It’s free, they can do it whenever they want, and they can do it from anywhere in the world. It’s not for everyone, but it’s exactly what the right person wants and needs.
Start A Flexible Translation Business
And, if you know a second language, Rev is a great way to make money. Yes, those of you who watch my videos closely may have noticed that I’ve started translating them into more than one language. And I do that with the help of Rev. If you’re interested, they pay much more for people who can transcribe from one language to another. You can also start a translation business on Fiverr for free by offering a translation service. These services are very popular on the site. You can also sign up for Text Master and translate software in apps. If you sign up for Gengo, you can translate website content into other languages. Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about the people on this channel who have trouble hearing. ASL is another language. In fact, it is one of the three official languages of New Zealand. And if you know it, you can turn it into a full-time job by signing up with booking agencies like Linguabee to be an interpreter for hire. But, as I said at the beginning of this video, I know that not everyone wants to quit their job and start a business full-time. They just want to make a little extra money on the side.
Earn $10,000/Year By Sharing Your Opinions
So, if this sounds like you, you should probably check out the next hustles on my list. So, the first step is to fill out surveys for businesses that are looking into the market. Websites like Prolific match you with surveys based on your demographics, and you get paid cash for filling them out. On sites like Respondent, you can also get paid to take part in surveys for academic research. I looked at it on the website Reddit. And some people made hundreds of dollars extra by filling out Respondent surveys. Because surveys are sent to you based on who you are, some months you’ll get more than others. Most people said to just check back every day to see if the survey you’re eligible for pops up. You can also sign up to be an E-juror if you live in the United States. As an E-juror, you will read about a case and see the evidence for and against the defendant.
After that, you’ll be asked to fill out a survey, where you’ll answer questions like whether you think the defendant is guilty and what evidence made you think that way or not. Now, lawyers hire E-jurors to read pieces like these so they can see if they have a good chance of winning their court case before it goes to trial. But if you don’t live in the USA, that’s totally fine. There are still plenty of ways to get paid to give your opinion with apps that are available to people all over the world, like getting cash gift cards for answering quick survey questions on Google Opinion and also for this website, Neevo. So, you know how Facebook can recognise your face, for example? Well, companies like that use Neevo to hire contractors like you and me to look at the results and give our opinion on how well the AI did. Some people on Reddit, like this one here, used Neevo to make a lot of extra money.
He was paid 180 US dollars to review how well an app translated German words. He did this while watching YouTube videos in the background. Being a user tester is another popular way to make money by giving your opinion. Yes, companies like Microsoft test their websites and apps with real users like you and me on websites like this to see if they are easy to use. And if you go to Reddit, you’ll see that people have been using this user testing hustle to make hundreds or even thousands of dollars extra each year.

Start A Live Event Business
And yes, this is how some people make more than $150,000 a month. And Airbnb is to thank for it. Now, most people think of Airbnb as a place to list your house or a guest room for vacationers to rent out. But you can make a longer list. You can list and sell experiences. Before the pandemic, people would list offline experiences like tours that you could book on this site. After COVID-19, they added a section for digital experiences, so people started hosting fun webcam-based experiences. And really, this seems to be the best-kept secret ever when it comes to free business ideas. People have been hosting digital events, and they’ve been doing great. During the height of the pandemic, the best event brought in up to $150,000 a month.
So, earning $150,000 a month is the exception, not the rule. But I still think it’s an inspiring case study to read because it’s a remarkable example of people taking advantage of a unique opportunity and then making amazing things just by taking action and giving it a try. These aren’t high-tech, slick events run by corporations; they’re just people being creative with what they have on hand. So, to help you think of events you could make and run, I thought I’d show you some popular digital experiences that have been successful. So cooking classes are the first thing. People who live in a country and teach how to cook the food there have been giving popular online cooking classes. The next thing is art classes. People love to learn how to make local crafts from people who live in the country where they come from, just like they do with cooking. Then we’ll taste some beer and wine. So, for example, people in the UK drink a lot of beer.
So, this fun beer tasting event with a UK theme is one of the more popular ways to do this with a group. People try beers while the host says something about them, like their history or how they are made. Next, we’ll talk about digital scavenger hunts, which are fun things to do as a group. Virtual tours are another thing that people love to sign up for. In these, the host literally takes a webcam out into the neighbourhood and shows viewers what’s going on. Those watching live can join in, so it can be a very interactive experience. So, I think my favourite is this panda virtual tour, in which the host visits wildlife parks to film pandas. And he lets the audience ask questions, which are answered by the panda staff. And now that people are starting to travel again, travel agents are also popular on here. People can schedule calls with you or get advice about what to do in your city or country. Now that people are back on the move and travelling,
Start A Fun Travel Business
It also means that a travel business is a great way to make money in a lot of ways. Thanks to the classic Airbnb travel experiences that tourists can book. I’ve used this to book things before, and it’s been great. For example, I’ve used this site to book several photography tours. The one I did in Austin, Texas, was similar. When I asked the photographers who ran these tours, they usually said they had a lot of bookings and didn’t have trouble getting customers, which I thought was pretty cool. But you can still have a successful business here if you aren’t a photographer. For example, you could run and host a cultural tour business, a shopping tour where you take guests to the best shops near where you live (thrifting tours are especially popular), a hiking and walking tour in a local nature spot, a food and drink tour where you take guests to the best places to eat and drink, or for the more adventurous, a pub crawl. Offering your services as a personal chef is another great way to start a business on Airbnb Experiences. This is especially true if you are a great cook of the food in your area. And if you’re not a chef but have another great skill, don’t worry. You’re in luck, because classes and lessons on popular local activities, like yoga or surfing if you live in a beach city, are also very popular and get a lot of bookings. So, if you’ve ever wished you could get paid to surf, now you know how some people do it every day. And of course, doing what I do, which is making a YouTube channel, is another great way to make money from your hobbies and interests.
Earn $10,000/Month With A YouTube Channel
As I’ve already shown, one type of YouTube business you can start is a channel where you try to get as many views as possible so you can make as much money as possible from the ads that play on top of your videos. There are other types of YouTube businesses, too. So, for example, you could start a YouTube channel where you teach people how to use your favourite apps and make money by putting affiliate links on the videos. Now, Wholesale Ted isn’t really a tutorial channel, but I have made a few videos that show how to do things. So, for example, this is the tutorial video I posted more than a year ago that shows how to make T-shirt designs using my favourite design app, Canva. Well, in the description of the video, I have a link to Canva that I get money from. This link has a small tracking code that keeps track of whether or not people use it to buy a paid Canva subscription. And if they do, I get a commission from Canva. As you can see, I’ve made over $1,700 in affiliate commissions in the last 30 days from people who used my affiliate links on my YouTube tutorial videos.
You could also review products you own, like this YouTuber does, as another way to make money with your channel. You can buy this product on Amazon by clicking on an affiliate link in the description of their video. If you buy it after clicking the link, they will get a cut through the Amazon Associates affiliate programme. Another type of channel you should think about starting is one that focuses on YouTube Shorts videos, which are YouTube’s version of TikTok. I think this is one of the most missed opportunities right now. They have a $100 million incentive fund and give up to $10,000 a month to creators whose Shorts videos go viral as a reward for making and posting them. And there are two other reasons why I think YouTube Shorts is a great chance. The first is that it’s easy to make these videos. It’s much easier to take a 60-second video of, say, your dog on your phone than it is to film and edit a fancy vlog. And the second reason is that your videos are much more likely to do well on the platform. Think about this: If someone watches YouTube videos for an hour that are on average 10 minutes long, YouTube can only show them 60 videos in that hour.
So they have to pick the videos they show the person very carefully. The videos on YouTube Shorts are only 60 seconds long, so if someone watches them for an hour, YouTube needs to show them 60 videos. This means that a lot more people can succeed on YouTube Shorts than on traditional YouTube channels. Simple videos that don’t have a lot of fancy editing are doing really well on YouTube Shorts and getting their share of the $100 million that YouTube is giving to Shorts creators right now, which is pretty cool. So, did any of my business or side business ideas spark an idea for you?
