📝 A woman named Jackie Mitchell was recently featured in a CNBC article…

Jackie has a video on TikTok breaking down the different side hustles she tried and how effective they were 👀

Numbering them for easy reference…

1) Prolific

A survey site that Jackie claims pays $15-20 per hour 💵

She was on their waitlist for 8 months before getting access.

2) FocusGroups.org

Focus group opportunities that pay around $100 an hour. You basically share your opinion on new products. 

Jackie only got offered 2-3 during her month-long challenge.

3) Swagbucks

Another survey site but Jackie mainly recommends doing their Game Offers, where you get paid to play mobile games 👾

Don’t expect to earn much here though.

4) Data Annotation

With this you get paid to label visual data. Sounds quite tedious, you have to pass an assessment, and Jackie doesn’t highly recommend it…

the work is so boring and so hard sometimes

But people in the comments say you can earn up to $30/hour 🤑

DataAnnotation.tech seems to be one of the main sites for this.

5) Remotasks

Jackie didn’t try this one but wishes she did.

It’s a marketplace where you can get paid to do simple tasks like labeling images and transcribing audio.

💬 Someone wrote in Jackie’s comments…

I love remotasks! They always pay just above $20 an hour for me

6) UGC / Brand Deals

Not sure how many followers Jackie had on TikTok when she started her 100-day challenge, but she has 127K now.

Apparently she started getting more attention on TikTok via the challenge, and brands then reached out and offered her sponsorship deals 🤝

Jackie doesn’t say how much she earned from this, but I suspect it was a lot more than what she earned from 1-4 above.

However, you don’t need a big social media following to make money this way, as covered in a story we shared recently…

7) TikTok’s Monetization Program

TikTok offers creators a bunch of ways to monetize 💰

Again, Jackie doesn’t go into details here, but I suspect she earned a good chunk of her $11,000 this way.

8) Amazon Storefront

This is Jackie’s page on Amazon where she lists some of her favorite products and earns a commission if someone buys via that page.

She has it linked via her linktr.ee which is in turn linked from her TikTok profile.

9) Referral Links / Affiliate Marketing

You can also see these via Jackie’s linktr.ee

She gets paid a commission for referring people to sites like Swagbucks.

My takeaways 👇

First, it’s a pity Jackie didn’t give a breakdown of how much she earned from each side hustle 😢 

But if I had to guess, I’d say she probably earned 80% or more of her $11,000 from 6-9 above.

And those income streams are much easier when you have an audience.

Still, the others are worth trying to earn a little extra cash in your free time.

Second, if you do want to build an audience, doing some kind of public challenge like Jackie and sharing your progress can be a great way to do it 👍
