How To Make Extra Income During Weekends


If you're looking to make some extra income, there are a lot of options out there! The first thing you want to do is think about what skills you have that would lend themselves to earning a few extra bucks.

We've got some good news for you: we found them. So if you're looking for a way to make extra money with something fun, keep reading!

Start a blog

  • Create a blog and publish content on it weekly.

  • Get started by selecting a quality content management system (CMS) like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal for your website. A CMS is simply a software application that allows you to easily create and manage webpages without any technical knowledge.

  • Next, select the right theme for your blog from thousands of free and paid themes available of different styles and colors. If you are not satisfied with free themes, hire an experienced developer to develop a custom theme that suits your requirement. Make sure you customise the blog according to your business requirements while keeping it simple to make it user friendly.

  • Publishing content consistently is key to success as this will help increase traffic on your blog over time as well as establish yourself as an expert in your industry which will help you get more customers. 

    So make sure that you publish at least one post every week on topics related to your niche market such as “Why Organic Food Is Better For You” or “How To Increase Your Credit Score In 90 Days” if you are into the organic food business or credit restoration business respectively.

Start a YouTube channel

  • Niche. It's very important to select a niche for your YouTube channel. Your niche can be anything that interests you or in which you have expertise, such as cooking, beauty tutorials, gaming etc. Choose a niche that is suitable to your demographics and also has decent search volume on Google (high search volume means there is a lot of demand for the subject matter).

  • Camera/Smartphone. You could use a video camera or even a smartphone to make your videos. Make sure you have good lighting and clear sound so that you can create professional-looking videos – but while staying at home. Like all content, it should aim to educate, entertain or inspire – ideally all three simultaneously! You need to put in the effort if you want people to take notice of your channel and subscribe for more content.

  • Keywords. When someone searches for one of those keywords on Google, they will see your video at the top of their results if it's well optimized for SEO (search engine optimization).

  • Length of Videos: There is no standard length when it comes to video length; however, shorter videos tend get higher engagement rates and longer videos tend to get more views overall.

Sell your talents and expertise

If you have a special talent, or expertise in something, then you can make money from it. This is one of the easiest ways to earn extra income as all you have to do is sell your services and get paid.

Think about what kind of service can you offer? If you are good at something, chances are that someone out there is willing to pay for your time and skill. You will be surprised at the number of things people need help with. Here are some ideas:

  • Handyman and repair works;
  • Dog walking services;
  • Tutoring services;
  • Freelance writing services;
  • Gardening services; and so on.;

Write an eBook

Writing an eBook can be a great way to earn extra income during the work week.

  • Choose a topic and write on it with passion. If you don't want to write about something you hate, choose another topic that appeals to you.

    When we were trying out this hobby, we would search for topics on Amazon and see if any books were available in the Kindle format—and then set about comparing our idea with others who had previously published books in this format.

    The eBooks included ideas on how to do things like structure your book; how to get it published; how to find an editor; and even how to promote your book once it's released. It was a quick way of finding out what other people had done and learning from them so we could start right in with our own eBook project.

    The results: We found an original idea for an eBook that could help others, as well as some great tips for getting into a writing habit quickly.

Make money by painting or drawing things

Use your artistic skills to make money by painting or drawing things.

  • Sell your art online. If you have experience in painting and drawing, you can sell your artworks online. There are several websites that allow you to upload and sell your artwork at a price of your choice. You can either open an online store on sites including eBay, Etsy and Amazon or approach other artists who are willing to buy original paintings and drawings.

Become a social media influencer

You can make extra income through social media by becoming a social media influencer. A social media influencer is someone who builds a reputation and following online by doing something unique and shareable. 

For instance, you might start a YouTube channel where you offer reviews of products and services. Or maybe you could start an Instagram account that focuses on your personal style or interests. You can choose to promote specific products or companies in exchange for free samples and compensation, or simply share your opinions as entertaining content on your own profile. 

More than likely, once you start building up some followers, brands will begin contacting you to advertise their products to your followers too!

Teach others what you know

With the advent of the internet, it has become easier than ever to monetize your knowledge and expertise. One of the best ways to do this is to create a course on Udemy, which allows you to teach on nearly any subject, including computer programming, photography, and design. 

If you have expertise that might be valuable in a job interview setting or as part of a certification program (such as personal training or bartending), consider offering tutoring services in-person or online through services like Wyzant.

Another way to share your knowledge is by becoming a mentor for someone who needs guidance in their career. Sites like Skillshare allow you to create classes with video lessons so that others can learn from your expertise remotely. Alternatively, you could offer professional coaching services on sites such as LifeCoachHub and CoachUp.

Finally, if you've been working for several years and want to share your insights with others who are just starting out in the workforce, consider becoming a consultant for those already established companies looking for advice from more experienced employees.

Do freelance work as a writer, editor, graphic designer, web designer, or programmer

Freelancing is another way to make money part-time. There are a number of websites and online companies that will pay you to write articles, do editorial work such as editing or proofreading, develop graphics, design websites and programs or perform any other tasks they may need some help with. You can find freelance jobs on Upwork, Guru, and Freelancer. You can also find freelance work on social media sites like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter

Rent out your house, property, or belongings on Airbnb or other websites

If you have a spare room, or even your entire property, consider renting it out as short-term accommodation. Renting out your house via Airbnb is an easy way to make some extra money during the weekends, especially if you live in a city where there are plenty of visitors who need accommodation.

Make sure that you're aware of any local regulations around renting out your space, and check what insurance changes you might need to make to cover any additional liabilities. Potential guests will also want to see photos and a detailed description of the property so they know what they're getting before they book their stay.

You can make extra money in your free time doing something you enjoy

There are many ways you can make extra money (outside of your job) on the weekends. If a traditional second job isn't right for you, try taking small jobs on Taskrabbit, driving for Uber, or even becoming an Airbnb host to help pay off debt.

If you prefer to work with your hands, look into local weekend markets in your area where you can sell home goods or baked goods to put some extra cash in your pocket. You may even consider selling items online through a website like Etsy.

If you're crafty and want to teach others how to make things, sign up for teaching gigs at sites like Skillshare and take people under your wing. If you're an expert baker who has mastered gluten-free bread making techniques or if you know the ins and outs of calligraphy, share what you know with the world—and earn extra cash while doing it!
