Ten Side Hustles for 2024
In a bustling gig economy, side hustles have become a popular and easy way to increase income and add financial cushion. With 2024 just around the corner and New Year’s resolutions ready to be made, there are more opportunities than ever to discover new ways to earn extra for this coming year. In this quick blog, we’ll explore ten side hustles for 2024 to earn extra cash, and one of these exciting and easy options is (you guessed it) listing your parking space with ParqEx.
1) Tutoring Online
Tutoring will always be a lucrative additional way for people to earn money. If you have expertise in a particular subject or skill, consider offering your smarts to online tutoring. Instead of parents or teachers reaching out to you seeking help, there are now websites and apps like Chegg Tutors, VIPKid, and Wyzant that connect tutors with students desperately seeking help. These platforms make it easy for you to start earning money while passing on your knowledge to students needing a hand.
2) Present Online Courses
Similar to online tutoring, if you have expertise in a particular area, consider selling online courses. Now, this does not have to be solely revolving around education. If you have a passion for plumbing, urban planning, technology, real estate, etc., and like to make self-explanatory videos, this could be an excellent option. Websites like Teachable and Udemy allow you to share this knowledge with people equally as interested and allow you an easy way to earn additional income.
3) Remote Assistant
Despite the ongoing rumors of more people returning to offices, remote work continues to rise, and the demand for virtual assistants continues to grow. If you have excellent organizational skills and could make use of these skills as a side hustle, consider offering your services as a remote assistant. You can help businesses and business owners with tasks like email management, email campaigns, scheduling, and data entry, all from the luxurious comfort of your home.
4) Freelance Writer
Freelance writing will always stay in style! Content is constantly in demand, making it a fantastic additional revenue stream year over year. Nowadays, instead of reaching out to thousands of businesses via email, hoping one will stick, platforms like Fiverr and Upwork help writers connect with businesses seeking new content. If you enjoy writing and have a knack for words, this is a great side hustle.
5) E-Commerce Marketing
E-commerce continues to grow, making affiliate marketing an increasingly popular side gig for many people. If you love and believe in products, you can promote them on your content and earn commissions on sales you have generated via links. Amazon Associates is a great platform to get started on. They make it easy, and many users have seen success via affiliate marketing on their platform.
6) Food Delivery Apps & Lyft/Uber
Ride-sharing and food delivery apps are nothing new for 2024. These side hustles have been around for years, but their continued growth shows that this is still a fantastic avenue to add supplemental income. Whether you choose Lyft, Uber, Grubhub, DoorDash, or another platform, you can create your schedules for each platform, allowing you to work for these platforms when you have extra time on your hands.
7) Rent Out Your Extra Space
Airbnb and VRBO have been around for a while, and they are here to stay. With platforms like these and other short-term rental platforms, renting out your spare room or the apartment above the garage is a swift and easy way to make extra cash. But this one ultimately depends on your level of comfort. Some people are not enthralled with sharing their space with others, so if this is for you, awesome! If not, we have plenty of other suggestions for you.
8) Dog-Walking & Pet-Sitting
If you’re an animal lover and do not get enough cuddles from your pets at home, pet-sitting and dog-walking are very suitable options for you that, dare we say, you might have fun with. With services like Rover, you can find pet-sitting and dog-walking gigs everywhere. I mean, come on! You do not have to tell me twice to be paid money to cuddle up with these animals and get those steps in.
9) Landscaping Services
With more people working from home, more people are becoming interested in gardening and home improvement projects. Not because they necessarily have more time in the day but because their backdrop for work happens to be their home and garden. They are constantly seeing areas of improvement but may need more time and expertise. So, gardening and landscaping services can be a profitable side hustle in 2024. You can offer services like lawn mowing, seasonal fertilization, weeding, removal of accumulated debris, or replanting.
10) List Your Parking Spot with ParqEx
One of the most ingenious side hustles, and yes, we are biased, for 2024 is listing your parking space with ParqEx. You all have noticed it! Urban areas are becoming increasingly congested, and parking options are dwindling. That said, if you have a parking space and are not using it, it is a hot commodity, and ParqEx would love to help you rent it out. ParqEx is a platform that allows you to rent out your parking space when you’re not using it. Whether you have a spare parking spot in your driveway or a secure space in an urban metropolitan area, you can earn extra cash by listing it on ParqEx. This both helps you make money but also contributes to more sustainable urban parking solutions.
In 2024, there are plenty of side hustle opportunities. Platforms, apps, technology, and evolving market trends are making it easier to add supplemental income. So whether you choose to hop in your car for a ride-sharing app, get those steps in on dog walks, or list your parking space with ParqEx, there’s a side hustle for just about everyone. Go ahead! Start exploring these creative ten side hustles for 2024 and feel the cushion in your wallet grow.
