The Top Side Hustle Ideas That Pay Fast

The Top Side Hustle Ideas That Pay Fast

There has never been a better time to make some extra income on the side and so in this article, we're going to talk about 10 different side hustles that you can do that actually will generate a decent amount of income for you.

Let Get Started


1. Uber or Lyft

I'm sure you've probably ridden with one of them, but you can drive for them and I'm sure you know this you might have even though about it but it's actually pretty decent and flexible side hustle that you can take advantage of and actually earn a decent amount of money as well

Uber and Lyft both have different earning kind of figure that they advertise and I've seen anything from $20 to $30 an hour, everything is going to be different so it's just a hard one to know exactly what you're going to get until you kind of start diving in a little bit

But Driving for each one of these companies offers a lot of flexibility and kind of gives you some control over your own schedule and when you want to work. But I do know that both Lyft and Uber are really trying to recruit drivers at the time of writing this article, so it's definitely an option to consider if you're looking for a good flexible way to make some extra cash.

2. Airbnb

It's just like Uber, you can actually earn some really good money just by renting out your house or by renting out even a room in your house and I've even heard about students renting out their dorm rooms, depending what city you live in and how well-traveled it is.

I have friends in town actually who every time they travel and go out of town they rent their house out, in many cases, they actually earn money while they're traveling because they're getting paid more from renting out their house

One of the big concerns that a lot of people have and it's just something I've thought about a lot is, what happens if someone comes in then destroy my house. Airbnb has this million-dollar host guarantee where they will just take care of anything that happens.

The other part of this that I like a lot that makes me feel a whole lot better versus just renting it out to somebody on Craigslist, is, Airbnb you can see and you can choose who's going to rent out your place and you can see what kind of reviews they have and if you don't want to rent to somebody you don't need to.

That kind of flexibility just eliminates a lot of concern and risk, so if you're traveling, maybe going on vacation this is definitely something to consider because you could easily make a few hundred if not a couple thousand dollar depending on how long you're going.

3. Amazon Flex

You deliver boxes for Amazon, Amazon is just obviously everywhere and they are just delivering stuff like crazy especially with prime now and so they have this program called Amazon flex where you can get paid to deliver boxes for Amazon and apparently you can make $18 to $25 an hour which is really cool.

It's also a very flexible one where like I say you can be your own boss, set your own schedule and just kind of control when you're going to do this and on top of that it's like I don't know if it gets much easier than driving over an address with GPS, drop on a package off on the doorstep and then walking away and to be able to potentially make $25 an hour doing that.

4. User Testing App

It's an app website and basically what this is, is, you are testing website and getting paid to do it and so there are a lot of companies who might have built a website and they want to see how users respond to it, if the website is communicating, what they want to be communicated and so they hire testers to come on the website and to give feedback.

  • Does this landing page make sense, 
  • Do you know where to click to get to the store or the checkout button?

They will ask you questions like this and you just answer questions, your job is just to answer questions that they ask you about this specific website, so it's really simple not much to it, you get paid $10 a test and most tests take about 20 minutes and you're looking at around $30 an hour.

The only downside about this one is that I don't know how scalable it is, I don't know if you could turn this into a full-time job, I don't know if there are enough tests available, you might be limited on what's available to you, but either way it's a pretty simple way to make some extra cash.

5. Selling Used Books

One thing I've done is go into Goodwill and find used books and then I used an app to kind of scan that book to see what I could sell it for online and oftentimes you can go to goodwill and buy a book for $0.25 that you might be able to sell for $5 or $10 online

Obviously, if you can repeat that a few times you can actually make some decent money and so if you don't mind shopping through Goodwill kind of looking for things like that which I actually enjoy.


6. Liveops

What they do is they higher call center agents, you can work from home as long as your house is quite or you have a quiet room in your house where you can kind of answer these calls you're good to go

This one also offers a good amount of flexibility in terms of setting your own schedule, the earnings on this one might be lower than a few of the other ones we've explored on this list so far, but obviously being able to work from home

7. Upwork

This is one where I actually go to hire a whole bunch of people and basically it's a community of freelancers who do just about everything, there are all kinds of different freelancers who work from this website

Basically as a freelancer you can go here and put out a profile and say that you do creative writing or maybe you do presentations for people or logo design, web research or maybe you're a virtual assistant, any of these things and you just go put your profile out there say that you do this at your own price whatever you want to get paid

If you have some sort of skills that you could freelance with, this is definitely something to consider.


8. Take lessons

In the similar vein something else you could do is if you have some sort of skill that you can teach other people, you can go to a website like takelessons where basically you can come on here as a teacher and you can teach about whatever that you're really knowledgeable about


There's all kind of academic tutoring any kind of computer skills if you're really good at like whatever, CAD software or maybe it's Microsoft office and so on, 

It's a great way to take your skill and turn it into some extra cash, so if you have some skills that are listed on their website, you can actually share with people and actually get paid to teach. This is something to consider.

9. Turo

This is just like Airbnb, but for your car. It's people renting out their cars to other people wanting or needing a car so instead of having to go to Enterprise or Hertz to rent a car you can rent from individuals and you can rent for a fraction of the price and a lot of times it's a whole lot easier and more convenient

One of the things I love obviously is that it's considerably cheaper than renting from the big car companies, on top of that the person renting the car will actually come right up to the baggage claim area.

the value of a car is a big kind of component of how much you will get paid. you can even rent out a car that might be 15 years old because people will still rent it because it's going to be cheaper to rent. But even if you do have a newer a nice car it's something to consider as well because you will get paid considerably.
