Freelancing has been getting a tremendous amount of attention lately. The features offered by freelancing are appealing to a growing number of workers every year. You can choose when to work. You can pick your clients. You can select the projects you want to take on.
But even with all the perks offered by freelancing, it can get a bit boring sometimes.
To counter that, and to make some extra money in your free time, you can start providing secondary freelance services. But you don’t want to learn a new skill from a different industry from scratch, do you?
For situations like these, I have compiled a list of side services you can provide as a freelancer. These services won’t require you to learn a new skill from a new industry. They will only utilize your hobbies, daily-life talents, and existing skills.
Online cooking lessons
If you love cooking, and you’re good at it, you can utilize this talent for your freelancing career. If you have been a professional chef in the past, that experience would help a lot as well.
It’s not hard to find people who would pay a good amount of money to learn how to cook, bake, or even decorate food. You can share your skills with other foodies out there and make some extra money along the way.
Furthermore, you can collaborate with food bloggers and share what you have with them.
Organizations are looking for new ways to advertise their products and services. Visual content is, of course, very appealing to the masses. But creative pieces of written content add a breeze of fresh air to any marketing campaign.
If your primary freelance service is content writing, you won’t have to struggle too much to get your creative-writing gig up and going. If you’re fond of looking at the world from a spiritual angle, it gets even easier.
People would also want to hire creative writers for their personal projects like poetry, songwriting, stories, monologues, and others. Helping them out might be a unique experience for you — and some extra cash added to your bank account wouldn’t hurt either.
If you’re particularly good at putting together a stellar outfit for yourself, or you’re just good at predicting and going along with the latest fashion trends, you probably have something to offer as a freelancer.
People would pay you money to put together great-looking outfits for them. Personal styling is something that people with taste will easily outsource from freelancers. And when they do, you’re going to be their service provider.
Moreover, you can collaborate with fashion bloggers and help them create high-quality content. Help them collect data for their upcoming fashion blogs, add a touch of your personal experience, and a superb-quality blog is ready to go. Your collaboration would potentially earn you a respectable amount, depending on the size of the blog you worked at.
Moreover, if you’re good enough, fashion industries would also be willing to purchase your services. It’s the highest level you can achieve in this gig and it’s very profitable, provided you have the experience and are willing to put in the efforts needed.
The bottom line
Starting a secondary freelance service is always an exciting venture. By doing so, you get to explore some new gigs while not giving up on your primary skill.
In this article, we have taken a look at some of the unique freelance services you can do as a side job. But remember, the versatility of the gigs you offer is only limited by your creativity. Explore your skills, talents, and hobbies — and figure out what you can do to spend your extra time on and make some money along the way.
