We all love the idea of a side business or side hustle to make extra money online and help pay the bills. That’s why we’re here!
We have some extra time, some extra ambition, and we want to do more!
Which one’s best for you?
Creative Ways To Make Online Income
1. Open an online store.
Platforms like Shopify make it easy for you and me – people without any retail experience – to open an online store and sell physical products. And tools like Shoppable make it easy for you to integrate products and checkouts into your existing blog.
If you’ve already got a blog with decent traffic and loyal readers, you might want to stick with Shoppable or use EDD plugin if using WordPress.
Either one can be profitable, and neither requires a big upfront commitment.
Just start one up and make some money!

2. Live stream for cash.
If you’re already active online – especially if you’ve ever live streamed or shared videos of yourself – Peeks might be a great option for you.t’s the world’s first “social commerce” platform, which means all your friends and followers are there, but instead of “liking” your videos, they give you money.
You can live stream advice, expertise, events, entertainment, and more, and people will pay you for it!
Some people use it to get tips for sharing their advice or expertise. Some people use it to sell products. And some are even using it to crowdfund for social causes!
As with your blog, Facebook page, or anything else, you’ll want to encourage current friends and followers to keep up with you on Peeks.
It actually reports better engagement rates than Instagram and Snapchat, so it shouldn’t be hard to build your audience!
When you can help someone go farther and faster in their career, everyone wins.
You get the reward of directly helping someone achieve their goals, and they get help achieving those goals! You might even get a few referral clients out of it, too.
If you have expertise worth sharing – like motivational or career training skills – people will generally believe you can help them. They also understand that the value you’ll bring is probably 10X what you’ll charge!
