Considering then fact that some ways of making money on the internet have become increasingly competitive in the past couple of years, it only makes sense to look for less competitive alternatives.
So, if you’re looking for some creative ways to make money online, you’re in the right place! By the end of this article, you will have plenty of ideas to start your next side hustle.
Weird Ways To Make Money Online
There are plenty of common ways to make money on the internet, for example building sales funnels, email marketing, blogging, SEO and so on. You can find more information about these methods in some of my other articles.
However, in this article we will discuss less knows methods to supplement your income, or even start a full blown online business.
As a side note, keep in mind that these ways are not for everyone. After all, this article is called “Weird Ways To Make Money Online”. So, if you’re not weird, you might as well just start a blog.
With that being said, let’s jump right into it.
1. Rent Your Clothes
A couple of weeks ago I came by a website called renttherunway.com. It allows people to rent out their clothes for some extra cash.
If you have a ton of clothes in your closet, then this might be a good way to make some extra money. After all, most people don’t wear 80% of their clothes anyway.(4)
Therefore, if you’re tight on cash or you just want to make some money on the side, you should consider renting out some of your old clothes. There are a ton of other websites that allow you to do this.
Just type “rent clothes online” on Google and at least 7 websites will show up.
2. Rent Your Friendship
Another weird way to make money online is renting out your friendship. Yes, you heard right.
You can get paid to pretend to be someone’s friend. There are a ton of websites like rentalocalfriend.com that allow you to sell your “friendship services” to other people.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to meet anyone in real life. You just need to make Zoom calls and other digital stuff.
If you have some time on your hands, this can be a really easy way to make money. If you think about it, when you Skype your old friends from college, nobody gets paid.
So, next time when a friend calls you, you might want to ask them for some money!
3. Stream Games On Twitch
If you’re into videogames, streaming them on Twitch would be a very good idea. If you think about it, you’re playing these game anyway. It is not such a weird way to make money online anymore and more people are getting into it.
Why not try and make some money while you’re doing it? You’ve surely heard the phrase “do what you love and you will not work one day in your life”.(4)
Twitch is great as it allows you to build a loyal audience that will watch you no matter what game you play. My advice is to start with a game that you enjoy playing and that’s not very competitive.
If you’re a girl, it’s even better. There are a ton of guys that watch girls streaming on Twitch just because … they’re girls. In that case, you don’t even need to be that good at the game you’re playing.
Just make sure you interact with the chat and have fun.
4. Start An OnlyFans Account
This is probably the weirdest way to make money online in this entire list. However, keep in mind that this only works if you are a girl.
If you are a guy, please know that nobody will give you money for you to show your parts. Of course, in case you are Brad Pitt or Cristiano Ronaldo, then the situation is a bit different.
However, girls can make a ton of money on OnlyFans. There are even some girls that make more than 6 figures per month. In August of 2020, Bella Thorne made more than $1 Million in less than 24 hours.(5)
Obviously, you will probably not make that much because Bella Thorne was a Disney actress.
The thing about OnlyFans is that it’s not really sexual. I mean, you need to look somewhat attractive, but it’s more about communication.
The guys who pay small fortunes on OnlyFans do so because they don’t get any attention from girls in real life. So, they go on OnlyFans and pay for the girl’s attention.
Therefore, if you are good at communicating with people and look mildly attractive, OnlyFans is a very good way to make money online.
5. Become A TikTok Celebrity
TikTok is the easiest platform to grow on. That’s because it’s much newer than Instagram and you don’t have to compete with people who already have a large audience.
Again, building an audience is always a great way to start making money online. If you manage to do that on TikTok, you can then become a YouTuber, make more money grow even more.(6)
On the other hand, you could choose something else if you don’t want to be on camera anymore. The important thing to keep in mind is that TikTok is a powerful platform that you can easily grow on.
If you’re planning to build a large audience and make money that way, TikTok is your best bet.
6. Become a phone sex operator
Phone sex is not as popular as it was a couple of decades ago, but there are still loyal customers that pay good money on it. It’s kind of a weird way to make money but it’s definitely worth trying.
Again, this one is probably only for the girls. If you’re a guy, the chances of someone paying in order to speak to you are slim to none.
If you don’t want to open an OnlyFans account, phone sex is your second best option. That’s because nobody can even see how you look like.
The best part about it is that you get paid by the minute. Usually, phone sex operators make around $4 per minute.(7)
Therefore, if you have a sexy voice and know how to manipulate men, you can make really good money. If you want to make $400 per day, you would just need to keep someone on the phone for 40 minutes.
That’s a sweet deal, isn’t it?
- If you love getting attention and talking to people, becoming a phone sex operator can be a really good method to make money.
7. Work On Fiverr
This is surely the most normal way to make money online from this list.
Fiverr is the biggest freelance website in the world. If you have any kind of skills, it’s always a good idea to sell them online. In order to stay in theme with the article, I will tell you that you can even tell jokes on Fiverr for around $10.
So, if you’re a funny person, you can just tell jokes all day for profit.
If you’re planning to build a more serious online business in the future, selling your services on this website is a great way to start. You will be able to save money in order to start something else in the future.
I suggest you do this, as it’s the way I saved money in order to start my first serious online business a couple of years ago.
