Who would like more money? Generally, the answer should be everyone, but especially in this economy, people seem ready to add to their savings. Unfortunately, most of us just don’t have the time to add a part-time job to our day and for a lot of couples, both people are already working. However, neither circumstance means you can’t bring in extra money other ways.
One way a lot of people have begun making extra cash is by essentially leasing out their car as a moving billboard. Many companies will pay good money for the privilege of having their advertisements featured on your car. A lot of people have received as much as $900 a month. Some people are even given a car—complete with ads—to drive for free. That means they save on car payments and make extra money at the same time.
Another method is to go into the world of freelancing. This will definitely take more work than just driving a car around, but you may also find you really enjoy this option too (plus, you can always do both). If you have a specialty you already leverage at work, like as an accountant or a lawyer, you could easily land freelance work for pretty good money. Maybe you don’t work as a writer, but have always been good at it. The same could be said for those who can do graphic design, code, draw, etc. if there’s a market for what you can do, you could collect an additional paycheck on the side.
Lastly, another way you can go into business thanks to your passion is by starting a website. This will definitely take more work, but you could write a blog about a certain topic you love or just have a site that sells other companies’ products as an affiliate marketer.
There are countless other ways you can continue to make money after your day job is over. The above three are tried-and-true, though, and while they’ll take some work, stand a good chance of putting serious money in your pocket.
