Nowadays, everyone wants to be able to make a living online. There are all these videos, courses, and influencers who make it seem so easy, and it makes it so tempting just to drop your current career and take a giant leap.
However, that’s not the smartest thing to do. While it’s great that you’re willing to take the leap and take action, we highly recommend that you don’t quit your day job right away. Instead, use your free time which you would’ve wasted on social media and streaming services (just being honest here!) to build that online income.
Keep at it until your side hustle makes more than your day job. Then, you also want to save up at least 6 months of living expenses, preferably a year, before you make that huge leap.
So what’s one way to break into an online hustle? Yes, there are many options out there like buying cheap items in stores and selling them online or dropshipping. Those are like the magic phrases out there. However, most influencers don’t tell you about all the realities of those ventures.
What we recommend is starting off with something simple like Amazon Merch. It’s Amazon’s Print on Demand service. You would create designs then upload them to your dashboard and create listings for shirts, hoodies, and other apparel with your designs.
When someone purchases one of your listed products on Amazon, you get a small cut of the revenue. Nice, huh?
Honestly, it’s gotten harder over the years, but it’s still one of the best ways to get your feet wet online. The one thing that seems like a mystery is niche research in order to figure out what types of designs sell well. Also, you’ll need to learn how to optimize your listings so the ideal audiences can find your products.
