Almost everybody I know has a hobby. I mean, come on, it’s what make us human. But not everybody tries to turn their hobby into a side hustle.

Why not?

Turning your hobby into a side hustle can make your day much more enjoyable!

For instance, instead of dreading the workday and constantly thinking about how annoying one of your coworker’s existence is, you could be looking forward to posting your workout of the day or even be thinking of how you can make sweet, juicy income from selling engraved blocks of wood on Etsy.

Here are a couple of hobbies that can be easily turned to side hustles:

Hobby: Photography

Photography can be soothing, relaxing, and somewhat therapeutic.

Many of you might think photographers only get paid to take pictures.

There is some truth to that, however, there are many ways to earn revenue as a hobbyist.

For example, a photographer can build their own brand by creating a blog and a following. The photographer can take photos, post about them, and could even review the camera. On that review, the photographer can use an affiliate link to Amazon where they can receive a commission on any purchases made with their link!

Not only can this photographer make money from affiliate income but they can also receive ad revenue from Google Adsense on their blog!

I can take this a step further and suggest this photographer start a YouTube channel so they can not only discuss their passion but receive even more ad revenue from Google!

You know what’s the best part? The photographer writes/posts passionately about their hobby AND they can self-promote their photography skills in their blog/YouTube which brings in more clients!

How many revenue streams is that?

  1. Photography clients
  2. Blog ads
  3. Affiliate income
  4. YouTube

Just like that, we’ve come up with four revenue streams to get that hobby kickstarted into a side hustle!

Now, let’s check out another hobby.

Hobby: Cooking/Baking

Cooking/baking can be equally exhausting and rewarding.

However, just like photography, there are many ways to score some revenue by turning this hobby into a side hustle!

For instance, building your personal brand on social media can upstart your side gig. Get all your followers together and showcase your skills.

How does this help?

If you’re trying to bake products for potential clients, they need something to look at! Likewise, having a blog and a YouTube channel can benefit your side hustle IMMENSELY.

Similarly with photography, you could put ads on your blog posts and YouTube videos. Moreover, the equipment used from a dough mixer to pots/pans can be linked up to your Walmart Affiliate Program so you can receive income anytime someone clicks your link and buys something from Walmart!

Above all, this will bring more people to buy from you!

Hobby to Side Hustle

In conclusion, hobbies can easily be turned into side hustles with a little effort. All you need to do is start, now. That’s all it takes!
