If you have a good camera, you could take good pictures and sell them online. There are many stock photo sites where you can start selling your photos today. Some of the most popular sites include Fotolia, 123RF, and iStockPhoto.

3. Become an influencer on Instagram

6. Phones Case Business

The mobile phone market is one of the fastest growing markets today. And that’s the reason why phone cases have a huge demand.

As a phone case retailer, you’ll buy phone cases at a wholesale rate and sell them for profit. One can also think of making phone cases. But that can’t be done part-time.
