Creative Ways to Make Money on the Side | 5 Side Hustle Ideas
Now if you on this page right now, then there’s a high possibility that you are someone out there looking for creative side hustles and ways to make money on the side to substitute either your full time or part time job or business. A side hustle is definitely a great additional stream of second income to have without solely relying on your full time job. And the good thing about having a side hustle is not only the fact that you get to make extra money on the side, but your side hustle could subsequently result in a full time income stream allowing you to make money working for your yourself and essentially becoming your own boss full time. So I’m going to be talking about my top 5 creative ways to make money on the side.
1. Sell T-shirts ot Merch
Selling T Shirts or merch is one of the best ways to make money on the side. Tshirts are one of the most basic products everyone owns and wears. Just look around your closet and see how many t-shirts you personally own yourself. Now the good news for you is, you can come up with some creative quotes, memes or funny text, slap them onto a tshirt and start making money on the side. And gone are the days where you had to get a tshirt company to manufacture thousands of t shirts in bulk with no idea whether or not these products will sell, then trying to resell them to your customers for a profit.
Thanks to platforms such as Printful, you can now make money on the side easily through dropshipping your tshirts. So this means you don’t need to order any inventory in advance and you only pay the supplier after your customer buys from you. So you can get your tshirt designs done within their platform, order a few samples of them and start promoting your tshirts. Each time someone orders the t-shirt from your website, you pay them the cost price, printful then fulfills the order and ships it out directly to your customer and you keep your profit and make money on the side. You do not need to be a graphic designer to design your t shirts, simply go on fiverr and search “graphic t-shirt design” and you will be surprised at the number of sellers who can do this for you at pretty much nothing. Alternatively you can checkout platforms such as canva.com which allow you to create graphics for free. So as you can see, selling tshirts are a great creative way to make money on the side with pretty much little investment.

2. Sell Printables on Etsy
Who would have thought that writing a text or drawing a piece of random art could make you money on the side? Well thanks to printables, you can now sell pretty much any type of text or image on etsy and make alot of money on the side literally for free. You can use canva or picmonkey to design your art or create your text, then sell it either as a digital download or post it out for an extra cost on high gloss A4 paper for people to frame and mount in their homes. This is another creative way to make money on the side.
3. Sell Pictures or Videos for Money
This one is great for photographers out there. If you are someone out there with a passion for photography or perhaps you do photography for a living, then selling your stock pictures on platforms such as Shutterstock, iStock, are another great creative way to make money money on the side. Platforms such as shutterstock will pay you a commission each time someone buys and downloads your image, and essentially make you money on the side. And the good news is, this is a passive way of making money on the side because you only have to take that picture once, upload it and make money from it indefinitely.

4. Custom Make & Sell Wigs
Another great creative way to make money on the side is to make and sell wigs. I’m not talking about those dollar tree synthetic wigs but human hair premium wigs. This is perfect for those with a passion for hair such as hairstylists, hairdressers and pretty much anyone out there with a passion for hair looking to make money on the side. You can make custom handmade made wigs and sell them on your website and even on etsy. Now why will people buy handmade wigs over factory manufactured wigs? Because we all have different head shapes and sizes and truth is, most of these wigs we buy end up running either too small or too big. However a custom made wig can be created to suit your exact head shape and size. Most women wear lace front wigs these days (including myself) as a great protective styling method. Wigs are also great for alopecia sufferers, so you could even opt your game by partnering with medical institutions that cater for these patients and start custom making wigs for them and make money on the side. You can learn how to make wigs on youtube, just do a quick search, get your clients head measurements, get some human hair bundles from platforms such as Yes Weave, then either handmake or sew the wig using a sewing machine and make money on the side.
5. Custom Make & Sell Wigs
Writing and publishing books on amazon is another great creative way to make money on the side. Gone are the days you had to go through publishing companies in-order to get your book approved. Nowadays you can self publish your book on amazon and make money on the side passively. I launched 2 books on Amazon currently generating me income passively for doing absolutely nothing. Ofcourse it took me a few months to put together, but once I was done and ever since I uploaded the book on Amazon, I haven’t done much else to the book apart from ofcourse a few promotions here and there. The book itself is bringing in income consistently every single month. Not full time ofcourse but if you make this a full time side hustle and self publish several books on Amazon, this could become a full time side passive side making you money on the side every single day.
