The Secret Places Side Hustles Hide Online
5 years ago · 2 minute read
You know, every “Opt Out” success story seems to begin with a hustle.
The, “I have a crazy idea. I wonder if it will work. Let’s try it!” approach.
From selling sunglasses on campus, to roasting coffee beans in your garage, to building a little Etsy store that sells jewelry. The people who eventually get more control over their income and time start with a side hustle.
Side hustles aren’t real businesses . . . at least not yet. They don’t (and shouldn’t) take up a lot of time, or cost a lot of money to start.
They are the best way to test out an idea you have, or leverage a skill you have to make an extra $500 a month.
I want to share something with you that we’ve been putting together that will help you find your next side hustle.
Because the most common question we get is, “where should I start?”
Do you know the secret places side hustle hide online?
There are a few categories of websites that you need to add to your bookmarks right now. They are exactly where you can find an idea “blueprint” to steal or replicate for your next side hustle.
We compiled them into a simple PDF for you – click here to get it.
And while I have you here, I’ll just explain what a few of these sites are by putting them in categories.
1. Web-business for sale sites
Sites like Flippa.com, Latonas.com and AppBusinessBrokers.com are marketplaces where people list websites and web businesses for sale. Get on the email lists of these sites to get regular updates on what people are selling. You can see how much money each site makes, how it gets its traffic, and more.
2. Business broker websites
BizBuySell.com, BizQuest.com and a bunch of other sites by region or state are marketplaces where brokers list businesses for sale. Think “local” businesses, like restaurants, laundromats, property management companies and more. While you might not want to buy a $300K business, you might find a great deal on these sites, or be inspired to kickstart your own idea after seeing “behind the curtain” of those listed for sale.
3. Freelance platforms
Upwork.com and Fiverr.com are platforms where people buy and sell freelance professional services. Go to these sites frequently to see what people are selling. You will be surprised at what people are paying on an hourly or project basis for skills that you have. Create a listing for yourself, or better yet, create a listing for yourself and then pay someone else on the platform to do the work at a cheaper rate!
