If you’re reading this post right now then you probably have a phone and with that phone, you can make as much as $500 or more per day with the 11 side hustles that we’re going to go over in this article.
Now many of you are going to think that this first side hustle is a joke because I thought it was a joke when I first saw it until I realized it wasn’t a joke.
12. Human Microbes
What if it were possible to sell your poop? I know that sounds like a five-year-old joke but just hear me out. A company, human microbes will literally pay you for your stool, which is just a nice way of saying poop we want your poop, no we need your poop.
Now, why exactly do they want your stool? Well for scientific reasons. I don’t know, I couldn’t tell you it’s all right, though it’s also worth mentioning that they have very strict requirements for the stool they select. Who would have thought that some poops are better than others?
What’s even crazier is the absurd amount of money that this company will pay you for your stool. They’ll pay you $500 per stool donation. This means if you’re having a bowel movement every single day, then you can make as much as one hundred and eighty thousand dollars per year with this side hustle.
And so now, every time you have a future bowel movement just remember you are literally flushing money down the toilet.
One out of ten on the money scale. Give a poop to change your life.
11. Virtual Friend
This is gonna sound crazy but sites like FriendPC, Rent a friend, and Papa will pay you to be a virtual friend for somebody who’s lonely. And yes, these sites are 100% legit and you can make money just by texting somebody.
Now admittedly, there are some weird things on these sites like this, I am the one you need, I don’t know if you’re the one that I need though. But seriously, all these sites are legit. But I find that Papa is probably the best one and the most trustworthy to use.
Basically, all you would do is just go to papa.com, and sign up to become a pal. You can certainly cast your net as wide as possible by using the other two sites as well in addition to Papa.
On average though, with Papa specifically, you can make as much as $3,000 per month by being a papa pal.
Now I’m just going to say this, obviously. be safe and use common sense. Your friendships with these random strangers on the internet should be strictly conversational. Overall not bad, I’m going to give it a two out of ten. But we’ve got significantly better side hustles coming up that pay massively more amounts of money.
This next one isn’t so much a side hustle as it is just an extra way to make money and save money on things that you do on a daily basis. Upside is an app that gives you money back for everyday purchases of things like gas, groceries, and restaurants.
And where this app really shines is the money back that it gives you on gas. The app will show you gas stations near you, how much you would pay for a gallon of gasoline, and then how much you would get in cash back for each gallon. For example, if gas is around $3.33 at any gas station, you would only pay $3.10 per gallon.
All you would do is claim the offer go to the gas station, buy your gas, and that’s it. You’ll earn cash back after your purchase, your savings will definitely add up pretty quickly over time. Not bad, two out of ten.
9. Take Pictures With Your Phone
I’ve talked about sites like Foap and Snapwire in previous posts. These sites will pay you pretty good money for the pictures that you can take with just your phone. But recently I found an even better website that pays significantly more money. IM is a stock photography website that Prides itself on selling authentic imagery.
Most of the photos could be taken on most modern phones that have high-quality cameras. Many of these images sell for close to $350 dollars per image, all you have to do is just go to im.com, click on contributors, then click on sell your work, and then start selling your work. From here you’ll quickly create an account and then start uploading your images.
Now how much you earn will strictly depend on how aesthetic and just visually pleasing your images are. But with most images on this site selling for around $350 and with IM giving you a 55% cut on every single sale, you can expect to earn $192 per image sold. Definitely not bad. I am giving this a 2 out of 10 on the money scale.
Proofreading is a side hustle that has a very low barrier of Entry as long as you know English, you know some basic rules of writing and editing, and you can get started with just your phone.
Basically, as a proofreader, you’ll just go through various documents and printed materials and mark any errors that you find. You don’t need an English degree to do this. Apps like Grammarly which you can download for free will automatically review spelling grammar, punctuation, clarity, engagement, and delivery mistakes within your writing.
To actually find work, simply go to sites like clickworker, Fiverr, and Upwork. You can expect to earn between $15 and $100 per hour as a proofreader. The jobs are there, there are endless people looking for people to help with things like proofreading. Three out of ten on the money scale.
If you’re somebody who’s always been a great notetaker and just good at school in general, then this next side hustle could potentially make you up to five thousand dollars or more per month. Study Pool is a site where you can upload documents such as past notes that you’ve taken and sell them to tens of millions of students.
Getting started is easy. Simply go to studypool.com, tap on this small icon at the top right of your phone screen, tap on sell docs, and then tap on the button that says start selling documents now.
Top contributors are earning tens of thousands of dollars just for posting their notes on this website. And the way it works is, every single time somebody views a document that you upload to the site, you’ll get paid ten dollars for each View and with tens of millions of active users on this website that can start adding up really fast. 3 out of 10.

6. Thumbnail Designer
I know that many of you enjoy watching YouTube, but behind the scenes of all the different videos you watch are many different moving parts, and one of the most important parts of any video, believe it or not, is the thumbnail. The thumbnail is the image that you tap on when you see a video that you want to watch, and a lot of YouTubers will actually outsource their thumbnail creation to other people.
So, because the thumbnail is such an important part of the video, YouTubers are typically willing to pay a lot more for the service. This right here is exactly where you come in, you’ll use sites like Fiverr and Upwork to find YouTubers who need custom thumbnails.
You can do this by either posting gigs on Fiverr and having YouTubers come to you, or you can actively search for YouTubers who may have posted jobs on Upwork looking for a thumbnail designer. You can also post gigs on Upwork’s Project catalog and then once you actually start getting your first clients you’ll use the canva mobile app to create the thumbnails, using pre-made templates and then add your own unique touch to them.
Many people have made full-time careers out of doing this but even if you only wanted to do it as a side hustle you can expect to earn around eleven hundred dollars or more per week just doing it part-time once you’ve built up a good pipeline of clients. But once you do, it’s going to be a good amount of cash in your pocket, I’ll give it a 4 out of 10.
5. Charge Scooters
If you live somewhere even remotely populated, you’ll likely see scooters on random quarters of the street. Companies like Lime and Bird offer dockless electric scooters that you can find on the street, rent with a smartphone app, and drop off almost anywhere you want.
While this is certainly a great idea, the problem with these scooters is that they do have to be charged at some point, and this right here is where you come in. Using your phone you can download apps like Lime and sign up to become a scooter charger, or as lime calls it a lime juicer.
The way it works is very simple. You basically go around your town and pick up scooters that need charging, and the app will show you where the scooters are. Once you pick them up, you bring them home to be charged.
On average, you’ll make between five and twelve dollars per scooter that you charge, and so for example if you charged between $50 and $120 dollars just for a couple of hours’ worth of work, that’s actually very impressive. 4 out of 10.
4. Field Agent
You may have read one of my previous posts where I talk about this app, but I couldn’t help but not include it in this one, because it is a side hustle that you can do with just your phone. Field Agent is an app that’s used by some of the largest companies in the world to have agents perform various tasks for their businesses. For example, using the app you’ll gather information for Brands and retailers by taking photos, sharing opinions, and completing other tasks.
Many of these tasks can be done doing things that you would normally do anyways like going grocery shopping. Plus, getting started is easy. Simply download the field agent app, reserve, and complete a job, and once the job is completed field agent will check your submission and once it’s approved you’ll be paid in cash directly to your bank account via direct deposit.
Many people have reported earning anywhere from one hundred dollars to as much as $300 per day and for that reason, I’m going to give this a Solid 5 out of 10.
3. Google Ads Specialist
Google.com is an internet attention Monopoly. Basically, most people use Google every day of their lives without even realizing it, and a big part of what makes Google so much money is the ads placed on the search result pages, and many companies will pay people big money to create these simple ads for them.
They’re called Google ads Specialists, and it is extremely easy to become one and potentially make even more money than you are at your current day job. If you don’t believe me then go to upwork.com and type in Google ads, and you’ll see Google ads Specialists earning over earnings of over one million dollars.
I know a lot of you are thinking “yeah, but Prince, I don’t know a single thing about Google ads and so I can’t do this side hustle.” If you go to skillshop.withgoogle.com, this is a site created by Google that will train you for free on how to become a Google ad specialist. And it’s not even that difficult to do especially once you get the free training.
And as you’ve already seen from earlier, Google ad Specialists can easily earn over $100 or more per hour even doing it as a part-time side hustle. I’m giving this one a clean Google-approved 7 out of 10.
A notary is somebody who is legally empowered to serve as a witness of the signing of important documents such as loans, bills of sales, etc. For example, if somebody sells a car to another person on Craigslist, in many states the bill of sale has to be notarized in other words a notary has to sign it which means you have to go and find a notary which is very inconvenient.
But if you’re a mobile notary, this means that you travel to the person that needs the document signed. What you’re doing is you’re providing a convenient service that many people are willing to pay a lot more for just for convenience.
To get started, in most states you’ll typically have to fill out an application and pay a small filing fee. And in some states, you might have to complete a training course or pass an exam, but overall becoming a notary is incredibly easy, and depending on what types of documents you’re actually notarizing will change how much you get paid with this side hustle.
For example, if you’re signing important loan documents, then you’ll typically earn between $100 and $200 per signing. General signings for not-so-important documents will typically earn you between $10 and $30 per signing not including any traveling fees that you might want to charge. I haven’t gotten this rating notarized yet but I will eventually, but for now, I’m gonna give it a 9 out of ten.
1. Low Content Books
I’ve got to be honest with you guys, I’m honestly not sure why more people are not talking about this last side hustle. LCBs or low-content books are an extraordinary way to make well over six figures per year from the comfort of your home. Low-content books are essentially just books that have minimal or no content on the interior Pages because the content is supposed to be filled out by the user.
You can think of things like journals, coloring books, word games, crossword puzzles, planners, and things like that. And the amazing thing about this is you actually don’t need any previous design experience. That’s because there’s actually a lot of great software out there that can help you design these types of books.
There are people making as much as $17,000 per month by selling low-content books. And so once you’re able to get things up and running and you found a good Niche to make good LCBs in, it is not unheard of to make as much as $500 or more per day with this side hustle.
You guys are all amazing and I appreciate every single one of you reading, and I hope that you have a beautiful rest of your day or night. And as always Peace and Happy Hustling!!
