First, let me apologize for not creating content for a few months. Sometimes life has different plans for us. Going through a massive move and relocating an ill family member kept me busy. However, as things start to settle down, I thought it would be great to provide you suggestions on how to increase your income during the summer months.
If you want to earn additional funds this summer but are unsure where to start this article is for you. This post is created to help you think outside the norm. Whether your reason to work more during the summer is to pay off debt, save for a big purchase, retirement, travel, back to school expenses or just a cushion for a rainy day, I hope you find this information helpful.
Here are some ways you can start earning extra money during the summer months:
If you have a talent for writing and have topics that you can speak about, you should consider blogging. It’s simple to set up a website and get started. Bloggers can monetize their sites by affiliate marketing, providing ad space and offering services to their target market. To be successful and gain followers, you will need to be consistent with marketing and content creation. I am not saying this is easy. However, it has been a great and rewarding experience for me.
Become A Virtual Assistant
A lot of people need help with daily tasks. People and businesses need extra help on a regular basis. By becoming a virtual assistant, you can help others with some of these tasks and make money in the process. You can find these types of jobs by checking this website and places like flexjobs.com. You can read more about flexjobs here.
Teach English Online
Do you have a bachelor’s degree and love children? If so, then you can teach English online to kids and sometimes adults. There are several websites like VIPKids and Cambly that are looking for you. You don’t need to move to another country to teach, and as long as you have a computer and internet access, you can do it from the comfort of your own home. You can find these types of jobs by checking this website and places like flexjobs.com.
Consider Putting Your Skills To Use On Fiverr
If you have skills that can be useful to others, consider putting it on Fiverr. Thousands of people are looking for someone to help them make their daily lives more productive. For example, if you have skills in writing, editing, marketing, and administrative tasks, why not earn some extra money while helping people at the same time?
Create An Online Course
People are always looking for ways to expand their education. You can earn some extra money by creating an online course. Websites like Teachable.com allow users to create an online course that they can share with learners worldwide.
Drive Others Around
You can make some extra money by just driving people around. If you have a car that is in decent shape, you may be able to drive for Uber and Lyft. Both platforms allow you to operate when and where you want to, and you can move your earnings into your bank account.
Grocery Shop For Others
Not everyone has a lot of time to grocery shop, and you can act as their shopper. Websites like Instacart allow users to submit a grocery order online. Then a shopper claims it and purchases their items and delivers them to the customer.
You certainly won't get rich using survey apps. However, I have earned an extra 100 here and there just answering video questions using the app Voxpopme on the Apple device. I have a full review coming soon about my experience. However, you can check out Voxpopme beforehand here.
Bonus Round Money Saving Apps
Okay, friends, this is a bonus to help you earn or save extra money.
Qapital has impressive features that allow you to set rules to automate your savings. I have personally saved thousands this year already using this phone app. You can find my full review here. The app is 100% free!
Digit is another one of my favorite apps. It goes above and beyond to help you save. It studies your habits by paying attention to your income and spending, and it will keep your spare change in an account for you. The downfall is that after a period there will be a fee for the service $2.99 per month. You can read my full review here.
Friends, this list is only the beginning. There are endless opportunities out there to earn extra funds during the summer season and throughout the year. We will continue to add more ways to this list.
Now, I want to know some of your ways of earning additional cash. What’s your advice to those looking for ways but struggling? Let us know in the comments.
