3 Side Hustles That Make Great Videos And Supplement Your Ad Revenue

If YouTube is your main source of income, you may find any inconsistent ad revenue from month to month discouraging. You’re not the only vlogger to worry about this. Even some of the most successful content creators still have outside projects that help them make ends meet. These secondary sources of income are called side hustles.

Though picking up a second job may help your bank account, it can also take away too much time from your videos. However, there are several side hustles that you can also use to create videos your audience will love.

Here are three side hustles that also make great videos.

1. Sign up as an Uber driver and prank your riders.

Rideshare apps are a quick and easy way for just about anyone with a driver’s license to earn extra income. If you meet the requirements for an app like Uber or Lyft, sign up as a driver and plan a few videos to make while you work.

There are several different kinds of videos you can make as a driver. Play harmless pranks on your unsuspecting riders or invent your own version of “Cash Cab.” However, before dropping your riders off, let them know that you filmed a YouTube video and ask for their permission to use the footage you took of them. It may help to have a business card for your channel to give them.

2. Write a book or blog about something you care about.

If you like to write, considering publishing a book or blog about something you care about. For example, many vloggers publish books about their struggles with mental health or putting their entire lives online.

Then, you can discuss what you wrote in a video. Answer viewer questions or expand on a topic you didn’t go into detail about in the book or blog post.
