See what it takes to earn some extra cash, whether you choose to freelance, drive passengers, or sell some unnecessary things.

Usually, people are quite satisfied with their full-time job salary. But if you’re paying off a loan or you have to buy some essential things, having an extra income will come in handy.

Luckily, thanks to the progress in technology, finding a side gig online is easier. What is more, these jobs typically don’t require you to leave your house. As long as you have a reliable internet connection there, there’s nothing stopping you from making money.

Here you’ll find seven ways to earn extra money while still having a full-time job.

An E-commerce Store

We live in a world, where the E-commerce business is getting more and more popular all over the world. People buy stuff using the Internet, so having an E-commerce store can become an invaluable source of income.

If you know something about sales and marketing, you should try selling items on such popular platforms as Amazon, eBay, etc. And if you’d like to do the selling using your own website, you can build your online store.

Despite having a full-time job, you can manage your E-commerce business while you’re at home. You just need to handle your schedule and customers’ orders, that’s pretty much it.

Earn money by doing what you’re doing anyway

It might seem unbelievable, but you can get money for routine tasks. For instance, if you’re a music lover, there are websites willing to pay you for listening to it. The same is true for watching videos, playing games, eating, walking, and so on.

Become a Blogger

With so many people using the Internet all the time, blogging might be a great chance to make some extra money. So, if you’re thinking about starting blogging posts as a hobby, you can turn it into a side hustle. If you know how to draw readers to your blog, use the power of the Internet to give you an extra income.

How exactly can you make money off of it? There are many ways to do so, like advertising or affiliate earnings. So, start a blogging website right now and work on it while still having a regular job.

Being an Online Consultant

If you’re a good expert in a certain field like management or marketing, you can use your knowledge to work as an online consultant and get some extra profit and at the same time keep your regular job.

Often online consulting is an easy way to have additional money. Becoming a consultant is not heavily regulated. You simply have to know something that the people need.


In case you have some teaching background, you can use it to make money on the side in addition to your salary. Currently, teaching international students English remains one of the best side hustles you can do online.

One of the great things about this part-time job is that you have full control over your schedule. So you can be a tutor online whenever and wherever without quitting your regular job.

Starting a YouTube channel

YouTube is the main platform for watching videos. People use this site to get some information or just for entertainment. This makes YouTube one of the best places to get extra income.

The platform has various ways of monetization, so the more viewers and subscribers you have, the more money you earn.

Think about what you can do for your channel, for example, cooking tasty food at home. Plus, it’s important to make videos that might go viral so make them attractive to the viewers.

If you succeed, you might earn more than on your regular job, but before it happens, you can keep your job and make videos when you have free time.


Investing is one of the best options for having a passive income source. When you buy stocks in a certain company, you become entitled to your share of its income, or dividends.

However, even though this way of getting money on the side is hustle-free, you should keep in mind that it’s quite unpredictable. Your dividends will grow or decline as they depend on the performance of the company. That’s why we recommend you learned something about the company and investing in general before buying stocks.


It’s obvious that there are lots of ways to earn extra income without quitting a full-day job. Whatever reasons you have, making extra money is never a bad idea.
