I have been inspired lately to find how many different ways I am able to make money. I decided to see how much I could make in a week from ‘side hustles’ and answer the question do side hustles make money? This has been really fun and I have actually made around £100 which is amazing. I have to give a shout out to the lovely Reinventing Neesha. Neesha’s posts around money and finance are amazing and I always love trying out her recommendations! what inspired me to start attempting to see how many different ways I could make money by spending very little!

This week conducting surveys I have earnt just over £10 from simply filling out a few surveys. Panelbase send you new surveys everyday and I have made £20 altogether since I have started using the website. It takes very minimal effort filling out the surveys and once you have hit the threshold, you can withdraw your payment as either vouchers or cash.
So do side hustles actually make money? This is a very different way of potentially making a little money. I had never heard of this app before last week. Over on Twitter I have heard so many people talking about this new app called Numbrs. I was intrigued to find out more. Numbrs is a paid subscription app that helps you manage your finances. I have been trying it out for the last week and it is actually a very good app!
So how can you make money from it?
Numbrs offer a daily draw every Friday called Payday where they give away 50,000 euros to those who have successfully referred people to the app. You also get a ticket when you sign up through a referral link. This is an amazing scheme, and it is where you can make yourself some free money.
Last week I signed up for the two-week free trial of the app through Neesha’s referral link. By signing up I received one ticket to the Payday draw and I was lucky enough to earn 10 euros. This week I referred my partner to the draw and we both won! We got 20 euros each in this week draw meaning overall we have won 50 euros without spending a penny yet!
If you chose to sign up for Numbrs using my referral link, and simply select the free trial you will gain a ticket into next week’s Friday draw and be in with a chance to win the top prize of 10,000 euros. You can cancel your free trial at any time. As this is a subscription app, it will take payment automatically. If you decide not to keep the app, so be sure to cancel before your payment date.
You get one free ticket to the draw when you sign up using a referral link. You can then refer your friends and family to gain more tickets. I know what your thinking- where is the catch? Well, there is not one. As with anything, you are not guaranteed to win on the Payday draw however if you do and you have connected your bank account and address, the money is yours and it has not cost you a penny while you are using the free trial!
This week I have also made money using the Freetrade App! Freetrade is a trading website, and it is perfect for beginners who are not sure how to trade just yet. When you sign up to the app, deposit just £2 and invest in a share, you will receive a free share! Your free share can be valued between £3 and £200! You can read more here around how the website works and how to sign up. You get a free share when signing up and you will then receive a free share for every friend/family member you refer to the app.
Affiliate Marketing is definitely a work in progress, but I am starting to make a few sales through my affiliate links, and this is a side hustle I want to utilise in the future. I have learnt everything I know from Kayleigh’s eBook, A Beginners Guide to Affiliate Sales. It is incredible for beginners in affiliate marketing and has helped me make over fifty affiliate sales in the last few months. I have mostly made a few sales through my hosting affiliate link.
My website is hosted on Lyrical Host, and I am a proud affiliate for them. You can get 10% off your first hosting plan payment with my code RACHTALKS10. I have referred quite a few people to Lyrical Host recently and this week I have referred one person giving me an affiliate commission of £15!
So can side hustles make money? Absolutely! I am loving looking into different ways to make money and taking the time to monetise various platforms. If you use any of my referral links, please let me know it means a lot. I will only recommend websites that I love and trust. Hopefully, these websites can help you make some money too!
