Wouldn’t it be great if you could end up earning a bit of extra cash from a hobby. Well, that idea might not be quite as crazy as it sounds – in fact, there are a lot of hobbies that it is possible to monetise and, if you work hard enough at it, you could even turn it into a full-time career.
Don’t believe me? Well, take a look at this list of hobbies that can be quite easy to monetise. Before you know it, you could be earning a lucrative side income from one of your favourite pastimes!
Do you love tinkering with cars? If so, you could start doing small maintenance jobs for people. Don’t worry if you don’t fancy becoming a part-time mechanic, though; it’s also possible to make some money from cars by trading in them. If you have a bit of cash to invest into this pastime, you could start buying cars, doing them up, and then selling them at a profit. Just make sure that you have some part-time car trader insurance to cover this side income. This is one hobby that could easily become your new full-time job eventually!
If you enjoy doing small DIY jobs around the house, such as painting, woodwork, and plastering, you could always advertise your services in your local newspaper. Then you can start to do this hobby for other people, and you’ll receive a nice little sum of cash in return! If you are serious about turning your DIY hobby into a side income, it could be worth taking a short course or class at your local night school so that you can gain some qualifications. That should help you find more clients.
Does your partner always complain about how much time you spend playing video games? Well, I’m sure they wouldn’t complain anymore if you were earning money from doing so! There are different ways you can do this. Lots of companies hire game testers to play their beta versions of games. You then need to give the company an honest review. Or, you might want to sign up to a site like Twitch where you can stream yourself playing games. If you manage to build up a following, you could start earning some money through advertising and gaining paid-up subscribers.
If you enjoy coding in your spare time, you might want to think about using it to earn some money. For example, you could start creating your own apps that you could try to sell on the various app stores. Alternatively, you could offer your services as a freelance coder and try to score some small projects from software companies in your spare time. It’s worth looking on websites like Upwork where freelancers can advertise their skills to paying clients. Set yourself up with a profile, and hopefully, some clients will approach you with work!
You might be surprised at just how easy it is to make a side income from some of these hobbies listed above!
