Nowadays, with the current economic meltdown and recession caused by the global COVID-19 health pandemic, a lot of you guys will need to earn some extra money to meet with countless financial demands.

Some of you will need to upset your student debt, but don’t have the extra money to do so. Due to little or nothing being left after all of your expenses at month end, you may find it impossible to save for the future rainy day (opportunity). Or maybe you also find it difficult to pay your monthly rent. You will need to earn extra money to meet up with these and other countless demands.

Sometimes our financial stresses are due to our excess unnecessary expenses, but there are other times when no matter how good you are with spending on only what is necessary, you will still have little to nothing left at the end of the month.

Good for you and I, there has never been a better time to make some extra money than at this present evolving times of internet technology.

If you need to earn extra money there are great opportunities that you can leverage by getting a side gig.

Come along with me to find out:

1. Delivering of Food and Grocery

Here lies a great opportunity to earn some money by delivering food and grocery as a side gig or maybe you could take a bold step by building a startup brand.

Since we are talking about a side gig, the major players that you can work with are Shipt and Instacart

With both, you pick the items out at the store and then deliver the groceries to the customer.

You also can apply to food delivery brands such as Grubhub, Seamless or UberEats. With these brands customers place food orders, you pick it up at the restaurant and then deliver it to them.

Note that if you can handle transporting goods as sensitive as food then you have other options as listed below.

2. Rideshare Driving

You may not be comfortable with driving food, but you love meeting different people, then here is your chance to earn extra money through your hobby. Ridesharing may be the best for you.

A more convenient and comfortable customer experience alternative to the conventional taxi service is offered by ridesharing.

Uber and Lyft are the big names in this niche. You can get started by visiting any of their sites, to fill out the application form. Many increase their ability to find riders through the platforms provided by these brands.

The best part is you can do this anytime your schedule allows you to or anytime you are free. You have no compulsory obligations of any kind.

3. Home Repairs

You may find yourself always being the one to give a hand of help for home repairs to your neighbors. I suggest it is about time you start earning extra money from it.

You may find this easier by using the platforms created by the several companies that connect handymen and handywomen to potential customers.

These include platforms such as TaskRabbit, Takl and Thumbtack.

You can set your price and take as many or few products as possible.

These platforms give customers the chance to write reviews and rate those they hire, so the better the service(s) you offer to these customers, the more opportunities you have to earn extra money.

4. Flipping

If you are the type that is good at spotting great deals, then flipping is the best opportunity for you to earn some extra money.

Flipping is when you purchase an item at a lower price and sell it for a higher price.

You can flip real estate property, and also use online platforms such as Craigslist, eBay and Facebook Marketplace to find other items that are good deals to flip.

You may even run across some free items that just need a little maintenance. Clean them up and put them back out on the market.

But you have to note, that flipping doesn’t guarantee any income. If you do it wrongly, you can lose. You have to be smart about it.

5. Online Tutoring 

Do you enjoy teaching any subject? Then online tutoring will be a good way to earn extra money from your efforts/hobby outside your formal job.

Platforms such as VIPKid, Tutor.com and Wyzant connect teachers with tutoring opportunities.

Many of these companies offer English language tutoring to students in China and other countries, so you can work when it is convenient for you, either early mornings or late nights.

These companies carry out a series of tests to ensure that tutors on their platforms are capable of teaching effectively since everyone isn’t qualified to teach.

So if you pass their tests, then you will be welcomed to earn some extra money while helping students perform well at school.

Conclusion

When you plan carefully, these platforms above are more than enough to make you earn enough on full/part time.

Question; Which of these platforms do you plan on utilizing?
