In this day and age, the side hustle is inarguably real. Technological advances have transported us to a place where it is feasible to make thousands of dollars in side income, pursue other hobbies and goals, and explore in the hope of broadening our own skillsets. So where to start? There are several ways to begin. Affiliate marketing, multilevel marketing, and freelancing in all types of industries. With so many options available, I am going to focus more on blogging and publishing for this post. Here are some handy freelance sites to supplement your income!
While highly competitive, ProBlogger has a helpful job board page. This is updated consistently with news of remote gigs available! Of all the freelancer sites to supplement your income, consider getting in here a huge compliment!
A writing network that I’ve recently become aware of is Zerys. While my experience at this site is limited, the network does boast that they assess “over 60,000 professional writers by expertise, rating, geography.” I have heard that this is a great starting place. Hey, why not? Give it a try.
I only recently discovered WriterAccess myself, but have heard great things here. The home page is enough to inspire you to go further, as it enforces payment transparency and prioritizing talent to receive experience. Sounds like a great area to develop skills and to flex that hustle muscle!
I know, you’re probably laughing about this. Truthfully, my first writing experience was found right here at Craigslist, and not even in the creative gigs section. Conversing with companies in general will get you closer to the right gig. You never know who they might know, which is why networking can be so beneficial.
Perfect for beginners, but also for the experienced. I say that because while most of the jobs on UpWork are fairly low paying, various levels of experiences can be hired. This is a sharp contrast to #1, which is highly competitive and often requires a lot of experience! You can also find some great gigs, the more that you search. Just sign up, and get going.
I hope that you are able to use these freelance sites to supplement your income. Experienced freelancers, feel free to drop your favorite site in our comments to help others! 🙂
