The Most In-Demand Side Hustles You Can Start Right Now
Published July 14, 2020
With rising prices and stagnant wages, having a side hustle is now the norm rather than the exception.
This is why jobs like Uber and Lyft have become very much in-demand. Around the world, there are about 3.9 million Uber drivers with around 70 million active users. While Lyft is following closely behind with over 2 million drivers.
As you may have known, the major selling point of these gig apps is its flexibility. It allows you to set your own hours and work only when you can. So you can keep your fulltime job while earning income on the side.
But if being an Uber or Lyft driver isn’t your cup of tea, here are other in-demand side hustles you can try:
If you’re a fan of food delivery, then DoorDash would be familiar to you. DoorDash drivers get food to people wherever they may be. Of course, to work for them, you need to undergo a background check. You also have to prove that you have a valid license, insurance, and a spot-free driving record.
DoorDash pays drivers on a weekly basis. You’ll receive only $1 per delivery but you get to keep 100% of customer tips plus a pay boost.
If you’ve got a nice car or even a limo, you can make extra money out of it with GroundLink. This app offers chauffeured black car service to corporate clients and leisure travelers.
Like most gig apps, you need to provide documents and go through a background check. They also offer training for their drivers. GroundLink also pays weekly.
For those who have cars but don’t like driving for others, Getaround is the perfect app for you.
This gig app lets you rent out your car for cash. As an added protection, Getaround also provides $1,000,000 insurance as well as 24/7 roadside assistance.
Just list your car in the app then set its availability. You get paid every 15th of the month for all the bookings made the previous month.
You can also receive additional credits for referrals. Getting a new user onboard will earn you a $50 credit. But if you can convince someone to list their cars, you get $500 in credits.
True to its name, Rentah allows you to rent out a wide range of goods and services. From your treehouse to your lawnmower, you can list it in their site – as long as it’s legal, of course.
You can choose your listing price and renters will make their payment online. You can even view the relevant information of each potential renter.
Airbnb is one of the most popular home rental apps today. Whether it’s a room, a loft, an entire apartment, a villa, or even a mansion, you can list it in the app. You can set your space’s availability making it a good side income if you have a room available over the weekend.
Like most rental apps, you get to set your own price. Guests will also have to pay upon booking so you won’t have to worry about runaway renters. They also offer free $1 million insurance for property damage and another million dollars in liability insurance.
Got a parking space, garage, or driveway you’re not using? Don’t let it go to waste! Make some easy cash by renting it out on MonkeyParking.
You have nothing to worry about as each rental is covered by a $500,000 insurance. So you can rest easy and just wait for your payment.
Postmates offers pickup and delivery service for food, groceries, and a lot more. According to a former Postmates driver, you can expect to earn at least $10 an hour. The app also gives you updates on your earnings after every delivery. You can choose to get paid weekly or cash out your earnings anytime you want.
