Writing is a very lucrative online career that can do more than be a side hustle. It’s a good thing the internet is here to stay and here’s why. For like-minded individuals looking to transition smoothly from a cushy day job to a side hustle and turn the side hustle into the full-time job will need to dedicate themselves wholeheartedly to making the “writing side hustle” work for them. While a job is always good to have @ 1st because you need a roof over your head, one should focus more on entrepreneurship and not just having a job to pay the bills. That’s what the employer wants their employees to think and not be their own boss. Side hustles in my personal opinion bring out the best in everyone who makes good of writing online.

This is an affordable way to earn money online within days of launching. It works like a charm. Create a retargeting ad for your online store. You can use an app like Shoelace if you don’t know how to create one. At the same time, you need to pump out a ton of blog content. Write blog posts over 1500 words. In each article, you’ll want to mention an influencer. You could do a quotes article such as ‘15 Quotes from [influencer]’ or a tips article like ‘15 [niche] Experts Share their best [niche] tips.’ Stick to influencers with medium sized audiences. Influencers with millions of fans probably won’t share your link. However, someone with a smaller audience may love being featured and share it. You can even post a request for experts on HARO and ask them to share your article since you’ll have their contact information. The retargeting ad is much cheaper than a standard product ad. However, to achieve success, you’ll need the traffic from the relevant niche influencers. When retargeting your audience, you need to create an ad of your best selling product or a really attention grabbing one. You’ll want to have the ad running before you do outreach so you don’t miss any of the traffic from the shares.

There are people making a full-time living from FBA, while others just do it for some extra money.
