I truly think that copywriting is the best freelancing business in the world… For those of you who aren’t familiar with copywriting, just think of it as words written for the purpose of business or making sales.
So Facebook ads, social media posts, emails, promotional campaigns, website copy, and sales pages are all considered copywriting and is needed by every single business on the planet – in every single language on the planet.
Copywriting, really, is the most important aspect of marketing for any business, and with the right fit of client and brand, it can be a flexible, creative, and fun pursuit…
Heads up though, copywriting is not for everybody or something that you can just pick up overnight. It’s one of those hustles that requires time to develop your technique.
But guys that isn’t always bad news. It’s what makes this the highest-paying side hustle on this entire list!
And it’s why I always say, the right phrase pays!
You simply start with creative writing, and then you layer on all the tactics, and the strategies, and the conversion principles, and the psychological triggers, and all the other secrets that turn written sentences into sales.
#2. Project Management.
Project Management is such an important role in every single business.
Project managers are the left-brain organizational geniuses that are responsible for ensuring that projects are completed on time and on-budget.
They are the ones in charge of coordinating teams of writers, designers and developers, delegating tasks, managing a project’s workflow, and monitoring and tracking deadlines and deliverables.
This side hustle is a great fit for someone who likes working with systems and processes, is great with interpersonal communication, and has an eye for seeing the details without missing the big picture.
And thanks to apps like Asana and Slack, it’s becoming even easier to manage teams and projects from anywhere in the world!
Like copywriting though, it does take experience to really rock this role, but if you’re organized and productive, this may be the side hustle for you.
Plenty of companies are looking for trainable project managers who fit these qualities. And, as long as you stay on track and on time, you can do it from anywhere. And, if you’re just starting out as a copywriter, taking on the role of a project manager in an organization can be an excellent way to get your foot in the door and add value while learning copywriting on the side.
Project management is also a great value-added service to include in your copy projects. And I did this a lot with my clients when I was just getting started.
#3. Affiliate Marketing.
If you’re not familiar with affiliate marketing, it’s the concept of promoting other people’s products or services in exchange for a commission for every sale or successful referral you make.
This could range anywhere from memberships and subscriptions to software and online programs to physical products and goods.
So, If you have access to a large list or network or you’re interested in learning how to drive traffic or master paid advertising, affiliate marketing has the potential to earn you some great cash.
Especially if you find the right product to promote to the right audience.
Affiliate marketing is it also a great way to test your copywriting skills and get immediate feedback and data before approaching new potential clients.
Now the amount of money you make, of course, depends on how many products you’re able to sell, and what your commission is.
For example, Shopify will pay you $2,000 for every merchant you refer! That’s pretty sweet.
Clickbank is another great marketplace to search for products you can sell on behalf of vendors around the world. You simply sign up for an affiliate link and start promoting to earn commissions.
#4. Virtual Assistant.
Now there’s a growing demand for virtual assistants or VAs from business owners around the world who need help on various projects, and to grow and maintain their brands.
Being a VA is a great place to start earning money from home and enables you to specialize and grow in countless areas, depending on the client you’re working with. It can involve tasks such as calendar and inbox management, bookkeeping, transcription, compiling meeting notes, research, proofreading and other administrative tasks.
Most VAs charge by the hour, so it’s a pretty easy gig to do on the side of a regular J.O.B. If you’re unable to be on standby and jump on immediate requests, though, be sure to communicate this with the client so that you can focus on scheduled tasks and weekly to-do’s.
#5. Community Management.
If you’re a great communicator and a natural people person, community management might just be the perfect side hustle for you to start earning moolah from home!
Community management can range anywhere from customer service, like managing customer requests via email, phone, live chat and inside customer membership areas.
But it can also involve social media management and engaging with audiences via social commenting, DMs on FB and IG and responding to questions and feedback on blog posts .
Now while it might seem simple, businesses around the world are heavily investing in customer service and community management as audiences take to multiple channels to interact with the brands they follow!
The most important thing I want you to take away from this article is that none of these things are magic money buttons.
They require dedication and commitment, and you have to PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE to get clients.
Always remember to be honest about where you’re at, share your passion for growth and lead with value!
