Saving Up? 6 Ways To Make Extra Income

Are you looking for a way to earn more? Nowadays, if you already have a full-time job but still want to earn more money, you can find many options online and offline. Of course, you’ll need to choose a second source of income that won’t interfere with your current job.

Sometimes, a full-time job is enough to cover monthly expenses. However, if you’re planning to buy something or start a new hobby, you might need some extra money to get started. But although finding a new gig can be overwhelming and complicated, you’ll need to find the right one.


And if you still don’t know where to start, here are some ideas on how you can make additional income!

1. Get s freelance job

Tutor, copywriter, encoder, and other freelance jobs are available online. Nowadays, employers hire through different websites like Upwork and Appen. They just post the requirements and tasks you need to fulfill. If you think you’re the one they’re looking for, just click apply and submit the requirements.

If you’re up for the interview, they usually conduct it via Skype or Google Meet video calls. If you don’t have past experiences, choose something related to your current work, but the lighter version.

For instance, if you’re working as a researcher or teacher, you can look for online tutoring gigs. On the other hand, if you’re a writer, you can pick encoding, typing, or transcribing jobs.

2. Trade contract for differences (CFD)

Are you looking for a gig that doesn’t take much of your time? Try contract for differences (CFD) trading. It is when you trade underlying assets without actually paying or buying the entire stock. In this case, you’re a partial owner of a stock, but you don’t have any rights when it comes to company decisions.

Furthermore, since you bought a contract from the seller, there are two ways to make a profit. First is when you already have the difference between the price of the underlying asset from the closing and when the contract started. The second is when you sell the contract to other buyers.

So if you have experience or are just interested to trade, now’s the right time to experience contract for differences (CFD) trading.


3. Start a business

Do you have some business ideas? It doesn’t have to be something grand, but enough to earn your goal. For instance, you can sell cookies or other baked goods every other day. You don’t need t set up a physical store. If you know some coffee shops in your area, you can ask them for partnership and bake your cookies at home.

On the other hand, offer services like home cleaning or being a dog sitter. But of course, if you have a full-time job in the morning, your schedule might not fit if you offer services. So if you want to offer services, make sure your full-time job is at night.

4. Become a content creator

There are many ways to become a content creator like on Youtube, podcast, or blog. In the past few years, Youtube gained a lot of members who make money out of their content. Since the videos can be monetised based on views, likes, ad partnerships, and subscribers, you’ll just need to think about your content to get started.

Meanwhile, you can also try hosting your podcast. However, unlike Youtube, it can be harder to host a podcast since you’re full-on audio. On Youtube and other streaming sites, viewers can also see something so your content can be based on the visuals.

Lastly, if you’re more on writing, you can start a blog and monetise it. Once you gain readers, you can also work with affiliate links where you can make a profit.


5. Try delivering food or accepting passengers

Got a car or motorcycle? You can either deliver food or accept passengers. Since delivering food or accepting passengers can be done within 24 hours, you can work at your most convenient time. For instance, if you work from 9-5, you can drive before or after that.

Aside from the fixed salary you can earn by driving, there are also other perks like accepting tips and free food. Meanwhile, if you’re not available, you can hire someone to drive your car. That way, you can still earn even if you don’t do anything.

6. Sell stuff you no longer need

Has it been so long since you’ve decluttered? Did you know you can earn some cash when you sell stuff you no longer use? Whether it’s online or in a garage sale, it’s guaranteed you can make money out of the things you used to own.

It’s faster to sell clothes, but you can also sell other stuff like antiques or even used furniture. However, if you think it’s overused, just give it away for free. That way your customers will appreciate your generosity.

You can set up an account on eBay or social media platforms. Then, start taking pictures of your old stuff and post them online. On the other hand, if you prefer the traditional way, you can set up a garage sale in your yard.


Now that you have a lot of options to make more money, it’s time to decide which one’s the best for you. Don’t forget to share which one you like the most by leaving a comment below!
