Do you like your current job? Or do you attend work only because you have to pay your monthly bills?

While some of you may find your jobs enjoyable, there are still many others who would rather spend time on their costing hobbies rather than their paying jobs.

So the question becomes, could people earn money doing things they love in their spare time? The answer is yes, absolutely. Keep reading to find 6 smartest hobbies that are both fun and would earn you an extra stream of income.

6 Popular Hobbies that would Pad Your Wallet

1. Writing

Writing is one of the best hobbies for many who want to earn extra bucks in their spare hours. It doesn’t require specific locations or expensive tools to write, nor do you need to be a professional writer if you want to monetize this hobby. You can start with a personal blog or freelance writing.

Starting a blog

Starting a blog isn’t a complicated procedure. You can create a WordPress website and open up a blog on any topic you like. While it may take some time before you have a sizeable audience, blogging is always a fun thing to do by sharing your thoughts with readers around the world. Once you have enough traffic, you can get revenues by offering blog space to advertisements. What’s more, owning a blog is just like owning an asset. You can sell it later if you want to.

Freelance writing

If you don’t have the time to maintain your own blog, or just don’t feel confident enough to start blogging, another option is to try freelance writing. Many brands and online publications are constantly looking out for proficient writers to write for their brochures, social media posts, or other materials.

2. Photography

Unlike writing, photography is rather an expensive hobby. While you are spending money on your favorite camera lens, do you know that you could also monetize this hobby by using your camera? You can start with uploading your pictures to stock photography sites and sell them to people who want to use them commercially. What’s worth noting, it’s better to determine a genre of photography you are interested in or good at, so that you could build up a stable audience as well as clients.

3. Arts and crafts

Are you more of a hands-on person who enjoys doing arts and crafts? The good news is that there are massive people looking to buy handcraft goods. From paintings and pottery to hand-made clothing and jewelry, there are various things you could create and sell. For beginners, try websites like Etsy and ArtFire where your hand-made items could be more easily found.

4. Video games

Do you know you could get paid by playing video games? Actually, there are many different ways to make money by playing video games. Here we will talk about the most common two ways.

Sell your video games account

If you are a video game enthusiast that always beat the latest version, you can consider selling your video game accounts on websites like eBay to make a profit.

Live streaming

Another way to earn money through video games is live-streaming. There are live streaming platforms like Twitch where you can record your screen when you are playing games. As your subscribers grow, you can make money through viewer subscriptions and donations.

5. Pets

If you are an animal lover who gets pleasure in walking dogs or feeding cats, now you have a chance to get paid by spending time with animals. And that is to take care of other people’s pets, or pet-sitting. To get started, you can ask your neighbors or relatives if you can help them take care of their pets. After you get more skilled, you can expand your clients by posting your service on local forums. Pet-sitting can be fun and profitable. You can even consider it to be your side-hustle as the market is burgeoning.

6. Shopping

Shopping is known for being a money drain. But do you know that you can now make cash doing the shopping? Here are the two common ways to achieve that.

Be a mystery shopper

Nowadays, many retail stores, restaurants, and bank branches hire “mystery shoppers” to visit their business places in order to measure the quality of customer experience. For example, to know how their customers will be greeted, or what’s the maximum waiting time. Each agency may have different requirements for mystery shoppers, you can sign up on mystery shopper sites to seek opportunities.

Shop for other people

There are certain groups of people who are too busy to get their shopping done. For example, homebound senior citizens or working professionals. You can get paid by helping them do the grocery shopping or purchase items for special cases like birthday parties. You may also offer service by giving guidance about what to purchase. 


Not all money-making hobbies are cash cows, but they will certainly increase your earning potential and give you extra security.  

The key is to get started with the one you have the skills and resources to get started with. And don’t be afraid to fail. You may begin with a rough start, but as time goes by, you will blaze a trail for your side hustle or small business at last.

Every time if they fail to deliver the product in time, they reply to the ticket with this message. So unreal. This looks like a message template for excuses.

---The product had arrived in our warehouse on 21, but it failed to pass the quality inspection. Therefore, we have asked for a new one in transit to our warehouse, which will take3 days. We will dispatch your products as soon as they are all stocked. Thanks for your understanding. Have a nice day! Best Regards---

𝟑 𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐖𝐡𝐲 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐞𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐀𝐝𝐬 𝐀𝐫𝐞 𝐍𝐨𝐭 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠⁣..

1 - 𝙉𝙤𝙩 𝙜𝙞𝙫𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙚𝙣𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝 𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚⁣

When setting up a Facebook Ads campaign, you should know that your ads often need at least 3 days of running time to progress from the learning phase.⁣

In the learning phase, your ads will often perform poorly. That’s because Facebook’s algorithm is still “testing out the waters” and trying to target different smaller audience groups within your target audience to find out which responds the best to your ad.⁣

So, before thinking that your Facebook ads aren’t converting, leave them running for at least two or three days, and you will likely see an improvement in your campaign’s performance.⁣

Don’t forget that it works the other way around as well. If you leave your ads running for a long time (especially for smaller audiences), ad fatigue will occur, and your Facebook ads will stop converting.⁣

2 - 𝙁𝙖𝙞𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙤 𝙖𝙣𝙖𝙡𝙮𝙯𝙚

Most businesses want to increase their Facebook Ads conversion rate, but with so many variables to consider, I understand that it may be challenging to do so.⁣

Luckily, you can analyze your Facebook ad campaigns to get a clearer picture of what can be improved. The more data that you have, the better your chances of optimizing your ads.⁣

To optimize the conversion of your Facebook ads, these are the most important metrics to look at:⁣

- 𝘾𝙋𝘾 (𝘾𝙤𝙨𝙩 𝙥𝙚𝙧 𝘾𝙡𝙞𝙘𝙠)⁣
- 𝘾𝙏𝙍 (𝘾𝙡𝙞𝙘𝙠-𝙏𝙝𝙧𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝 𝙍𝙖𝙩𝙚)
- 𝘾𝙋𝙈 (𝘾𝙤𝙨𝙩 𝙥𝙚𝙧 1,000 𝙄𝙢𝙥𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨)⁣
- 𝘾𝙤𝙨𝙩 𝙥𝙚𝙧 𝘾𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙑𝙞𝙚𝙬⁣
- 𝙑𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙤 𝘼𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙖𝙜𝙚 𝙋𝙡𝙖𝙮 𝙏𝙞𝙢𝙚 (𝙞𝙛 𝙖𝙥𝙥𝙡𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚)⁣

If you get to know which of these metrics underperform for your campaign, then it will be much easier to fix the problem that your Facebook ads are not converting!⁣

After advertising on Facebook for some time, you will get a feeling for when a particular metric is under or overperforming.⁣

3 - 𝙉𝙤𝙩 𝙩𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙚𝙣𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝⁣

There’s one thing that you should remember when advertising on Facebook:⁣

Test, test, and test!⁣

So, if your Facebook ads are not converting, test out some different images (or videos), ad copy, and headlines.⁣

You will never be able to predict which combination of these factors will convert the best, so the only option left is to test them all out.⁣

Don’t be afraid to test the ad more than once. The more you test, the more you’ll be able to understand what works and what doesn’t.⁣

When testing different ads, remember to try out different marketing angles as well.⁣

I hope this helps you out, if you have any questions leave them in the comment section below and I’d be more than happy to answer in as much detail as possible.
