Millions of people are making extra money with online jobs. But most are doing the same things. So here are some ideas for alternative side-hustles you can begin immediately online.

Photography is art. And as such is just as subjective. One woman’s idea of poor imagery is another’s idea of a masterpiece. Selling photos online is nothing new. Sites like Pixabay, Shutterstock, and Pexels are great ways to make money online. And while they allow specific artful imagery like nude portraits, they don’t typically cater to a niche.
Yet there are harmless sites with niche-specific self-photography. For example, you can upload your feet pics for sale and make some money doing so. You can begin right away, and no one knows it’s you.
Live Hot Yoga Classes
Yoga is a huge topic these days and a fitness hobby enjoyed by millions worldwide. It’s an enjoyable experience with numerous benefits to your physical and mental health. While it’s typically a social activity that requires attendance, modern technology means you can begin instructing yoga at any time, from anywhere.
For instance, you can start live sessions on YouTube or Facebook Live. Making money comes from donations and ad revenue and can take a while. But it costs nothing to begin besides your marketing budget, which is optional.
Alternative Side-Hustles Include Selling CBD
You might be against cannabis, and that’s fine. It is illegal in most places, after all. However, CBD, a derivative of cannabis, is legal because it contains none of the harmful drugs associated with marijuana. Because of this, CBD is becoming a massive online business and is an excellent alternative to the already saturated vitamins and minerals market.
You don’t need to import anything or handle cannabis products. All you need to do is set up an eCommerce store and offer legal white label CBD products, which can earn between $27,000 and $65,000.
Self-Published Adult Fiction
The self-publishing scene is easier than ever to get into, thanks to Amazon. All you need to do is write an eBook and put it on the site. Of course, you need some writing talent, but tools like Grammarly are a big help.
There are numerous categories from which you can choose. But as an alternative to the most popular, adult fiction is one that performs well. Fifty Shades of Grey started as a Twilight “fan-fic” book, after all. And the writer, E.L James, is worth around $58 million today. Alternatively, you can upload your stories to Amazon’s Audible platform.
Renting Space in Your Home
There are many people making money renting out separate properties that they own. But not many are too keen on the idea of advertising their home on the internet. And with good reason, you never know what people you will attract.
However, with some safe practices, you can confidently rent out spare rooms, the guest house, or your finished basement to a lodger. Depending on the facilities you can offer, your asking price will vary. But you can make some good money by providing somewhere warm and safe for someone in need of accommodation.
It’s easier than ever to make money online. Some alternative side-hustles include photographing yourself, selling CBD online, and renting out a spare part of your home to someone in need.
