Do side hustles really help you make money? The answer is a definite YES!

While a side hustle may not make you rich, heck it quite likely won’t even replace a full-time income in many circumstances (depending on where you live of course), but a side hustle can be a way for you to make money so that you can pay off a few bills, or take a short vacation, or save up for Christmas.

Now many of us are familiar with money making options online such as oDesk, Elance, Etsy, eBay, etc., right? But today I want to highlight some organizations that you may not be aware of.

Side Hustles Really Help You Make Money


Have you heard of Blogmutt?

If you like to write short quick blog posts and get paid for it, head over to Blogmutt.

You are paid $8 for each post you sell as soon as it’s taken by the customer.

There aren’t any hard and fast rules about word count aside from the fact that it should be around 350 words.


ClixSense is somewhat similar to Swagbucks in that you get paid to browse websites, play games and view ads.

The difference between ClixSense and Swagbucks is that ClixSense pays cash while Swagbucks pays with points that you convert to gift cards.

I personally prefer cash instead of gift cards.

And think about it…this is something you could easily do while watching TV, or even sitting out on your back deck and enjoying the summer breeze.
