8 Uncommon Side Hustles To Make Money In 2020

Side Hustles To Make Money

In this article, I'm going to show you 8 different side hustles that you can get started within 2019/2020 to make extra money. And this isn't going to be that typical article that you see people talking about swag bucks, online surveys and babysitting for extra money, those are all very common strategies for making money and doing those side hustles.

But I think you're going to find some value in this article, you're not going to hear some of these anywhere else, because probably only myself was doing some of these when I was younger, but they were great ways to make extra $100 or more in some cases for some of these different strategies.

1. Paint Homes

This is something I was doing when I was younger, 15 and 16. This is especially great in the summer months or the warmer months, but I found that a lot of people don't want to get up on a ladder, even if it's a small ladder, painting the interior of their home, they want to paint a room, bedroom. A lot of people don't want to get up on ladders or stand up on the roof and paint their home so they're willing to pay people to do it.

You can take advantage of that, do this on the weekends, do it as a side hustle. I was getting a lot of people through my church, who I would paint their homes for them, the inside of their homes and make a decent amount of money.

The way to do this, you just charge upfront for the cost of the paint and then charge them an hourly rate on top of that. I was charging $20 an hour for myself to do this, you can set your own rate, make sure you set it at a decent rate, a lot of people are willing to pay for this service.

2. Create Resumes

This is for people who don't want to get some hands-on. They want to do something from their home and you could consider helping people creating resumes. This is especially profitable in college campuses, on college campuses you can post your advertisements to those college bulletins you see outside of classrooms and outside of common areas.

But if you think about the investment behind this, a lot of people are willing to pay $50 to $100 or more for somebody to help them create a resume. There's a lot of terrible resumes out there, so imagine if you could pay somebody $50 and they could critique your resume, help you build your resume and that resume can then land you an $80,000 a year job

It can be a great investment for a lot of college kids and most college kids will just get their parents to pay for it because I guess that's what happens. So you can make a decent amount of money from this by helping people create those resumes, critiquing those resumes.

You can advertise it through those college campuses or on Craiglist, I see some advertisement for that on craigslist or even through something like upwork or Fiverr. But it's a great way to make some money by just working on your computer.

3. Buy Bulk, Sell individually

If you can apply this to your everyday life and use this every day when you're buying different products, you're going to find that it can actually make you a lot of money. And that's by simply buying bulk, buying wholesale and then selling retail.

Let me give you a great example when I was in 6-grade, I was a very strange kid, I would buy a 100 pounds of those world foreign coins and then I would split them up into one or two-pound packages and sell them on eBay and make a profit on them. And I was making at least $4 to $5 per package that I was selling, I basically just buying something bulk and then splitting it up and selling it retail.

This is what Walmart, the grocery store does, they'll buy things on pallets and then split them up and sell them individually for a larger amount of money. So think about what you're buying in your life, maybe you bought something on Amazon today, maybe you bought something on eBay today

Think about how much that cost, and then run the numbers and see how much would it cost you to buy a 100 of those, how much would it cost you to buy a 1,000 of those and how much money could you make if you were selling those.

Sometimes you'll run these numbers and find that maybe it's not that profitable, but other times you'll find that you can make a lot of money, maybe 40% to 50% profit margins on some of these products. They can sell on eBay and Amazon and I love selling on eBay and amazon because what's great about them is that they're already or a search engine themselves.

If you have a product and you want to sell it and you create your own website, you have to get people to come to your website. It's hard to do that especially ranking on Google is very difficult to do, to get people to your website. But if you post a product to eBay, people can just search within eBay and it'll get found. If you have your own website. You've to drive traffic to it and run ads for it.

4. Take Advantage Of Tourism

When I say take advantage, I'm not saying exploit people like selling them a bottle of water for $8 like they did at Woodstock 99. We're talking about finding large groups of people and then seeing what it is that they want.

Lets me give you some examples of this.

Last week I was at a Penn State spring football game and there are about 40,000 to 50,000 people plus, tailgating outside of the stadium and there's a kid probably 10-year to 11-years old with candy bar, selling for $2 per candy bar with a massive jug of money, like at least a few hundred dollars and he's just raking in the cash from all these people, I bought like 3 to 4 candy bars.

But he was seeing that look a lot of people are hungry, he can make a lot of money off of this. The legalities of this, you want to be careful, you don't want to sell something that you're not allowed to if you're not allowed to sell something in that particular area you probably shouldn't.

But you want to find a large crowd of people and see what they want, if it's really hot and people are on the beach and they want some ice cream, it just works out perfectly if you're selling ice cream. To find what people want, if it's super cold out and you're selling warm harts, you can make a lot of money off that.

5. Instagram Niche Page

This is something you could do while laying in bed or lying in bed and it can be a little bit more difficult to build up over time. I know people who are making $5,000 to $10,000 or more per month by doing this.

I'll give you some example,

Ryan Scribner has a page at least over a quarter million followers now, it's called "investing simple" and he makes, I probably shouldn't tell you the exact numbers anyway, but he's making at least a couple thousand dollars per month from this Instagram page by selling a product to people.

I know some other people who have pages that they started back in September that have over 50, 60 to 70 thousand followers on Instagram, and what's great about this is that having influence can almost directly correlate with making money. It really can, because if you have a lot of eyes on your Instagram page, you can find ways to sell different products, you can find ways to make money through affiliate marketing.

Building an audience can really help make money in the future, but it's something that takes patience, if you can be patient about it and build that following up over a long time, you can find yourself making some nice cash on the side as a side hustle.

You can be taking a dump and posting on Instagram for your Instagram page and doing quite well.

6. Research Studies (University)

It's not online surveys, but it is taking part in research especially through something like your local university. I used to do this in college, my freshman year of college. Take part in some of these studies and sometimes you'll find yourself doing some very strange things like drinking cranberry juice for 3 weeks, while they take your blood pressure or something weird like that.

Not that I did that one, but I would also get paid $5 to eat burgers and I basically get a free lunch and get $5 from the food science department at Penn State.

If you can find a local university great one to look for, you don't want to be careful on how much of lab rat you become, you don't want to be taking all these weird pills that they might be paying you to take. Be careful on that, make sure you can draw the line in the sand, I wasn't taking weird pills, but some people do some of those more clinical research studies, you can get paid thousands of dollars for it. But you might end up with serious side effects, so be careful with that. Only do the ones that you're comfortable with doing.

But like I said, the university is a great way to do this, look at your local university websites, somewhere there should be a tab somewhere, you can get paid a few hundred dollars even a few thousand dollars to take part in some of these research studies.

It's not online surveys, online surveys you're going to make like $0.42 a day, so don't waste your time with that.

7. Bartending

Not so much of a side hustle but more so of a job. But I still find it to be important to put on this list. Especially if you're good-looking, if you're attractive just become a bartender, you're going to make a lot of money by doing this. I have friends who will do this over the summer between years in college at the beach Jersey Shore and he makes a lot of money, a couple hundred dollars per night on peak nights by bartending.

It's not something you just walk into.

You're going to have to build up and work your way up to become a bartender, but once you do that, you can make a nice amount of money be doing something that maybe the hours aren't perfect but it could be part-time. I know people who do it part-time or it could be a full-time job as well.

I don't want to downplay it, it's not really easy but once you get into it you can build up that skill and make money off of it.

8. Healthy Dog Treats

People spend a lot of money on their animals. Especially maybe if they don't have kids and maybe their dogs or their kids in a lot of ways that they think of it. They end up spending a lot of money on them, they've like pet insurance and they're willing to buy organic food, gluten-free food for the pets and spending thousands of dollars on their pet which for good reason.

Dogs are man's best friends, so people pay a lot of money for it and there's a way to tap into this market by selling specific dog treats to people, and you can make a decent amount of money from this selling these expensive treats to people.

Just look into this and there are some different blog posts on some people who started these, different companies tapping into the pet industry, especially for people who are willing to pay a lot of money for their pets, but you could bake dog treats literally in your kitchen and then sell them to your local pet stores and then maybe start selling them online, build an Instagram page, start to market them online and build your brand that way.

Hopefully, you got some value in this article
