In today’s economy, having multiple streams of income has become more important than ever. A side hustle can provide financial stability, help you achieve your financial goals, and give you the freedom to pursue your passions.

However, building a successful side hustle while working a 9-5 job can be challenging, especially if you’re not sure where to start. In this post, we will provide a complete guide to building a profitable side hustle, including tips on finding the right opportunity, managing your time, and marketing your services.

We will also share five lucrative side hustle ideas to help you get started. Whether you’re looking to supplement your income or turn your side hustle into a full-time business, this guide has everything you need to know to succeed.

1. Social media brand building

Building a social media brand can help you make $10,000 per month if you do it right. If you’re someone with a 9-to-5 job, consider building a social media brand.

You can start by choosing a platform:

1. Twitter – For writers & web developers

2. Instagram – For designers

3. LinkedIn – For writers, designers, and software developers

I don’t know about Facebook so I will leave it to you to research about it.

How to build:

After choosing the platform that resonates with your interests, start this:

  • Choose multiple profitable niches
  •  Find niche masters (those who have 50k to 100k followers)
  • Copy their profile layout
  •  Analyze how they post and interact with their audience
  •  After that, start creating content for 3 months without looking at the analytics every day
  •  Engage and collaborate with other creators
  • Don’t change your profile bio, cover, or anything because of some trend.
  •  Jump into trends – create content around them and see followers +++

After building a brand on social media.


  • Affiliate marketing-Selling products for commissions
  • Create digital products and sell them
  • Sell services-If you’re a copywriter, designer, or anything you can sell your service using your social media brand
  • Sponsorships, partnerships, and collaborations can help you

This is how you build, create and monetize.


If you don’t remain consistent for 3 months then you will not make it to the top.

Stay consistent and keep on creating valuable content.

2. Freelance writing

I was a freelance writer on Fiverr for about 2 years. Freelance writing is profitable. This is not saturated at all. If you’re skillful and know how AI tools and other resources work then you’re going to crush it.

  2. Build a portfolio on Carrd or any free website you see fit.
  3. Try Fiverr & Upwork to get a job.

If not, Try Social Media.

Here’s how:

  1. Build a brand
  2. Create valuable content
  3. Provide service as a Freelance writer
  4. Share content
  5. Make CTA of your content outreach

It will take time but this is the most easiest yet profitable way to get multiple clients.
