The Best Online Side Hustles For Women In 2022

I noticed that most online side hustles that are talked about on the internet are best for men but not ok for women. So I decided to make this post to talk about the 6 best online side hustles that can help any woman generate a good passive income. My favorite is 6th side hustle, which can earn you up to $5000 monthly. So if you are a woman that is looking for an online side hustle that will generate good income for you, then you are at the right place. Let’s get to it!

1. Social Media Influencer

We all know that ladies love social media, and there are so many ladies with huge followers online but are not taking advantage of this to make money online. Being a social media influence can earn you a lot of money monthly. You don’t need to be a professional, as long as you have a good amount of followers, you can start making money with your platform.

If you have lots of followers that are interested in a particular nitch, you can approach brands or organizations in that nitch and talk to them about advertising to your audience. For example, let’s say you have a social media account where you post different makeup styles, and you have been able to build an audience with that kind of content. You can approach a makeup brand with a proposal via DM, email, or even in person and talk to them about the huge opportunity they stand to gain by promoting their product through your social media account.

Another great way to make money with your audience is to buy unique items that are related to your nitch and sell them to your audience for profit. As long as you have a good relationship and engagement with your audience, you will surely make a good amount of money being an influencer on social media.

2. Sell On Large E-commerce Website

Selling products on an eCommerce website is the simplest and very lucrative side hustle for women. The sweet thing about this business is that it can be done part-time. If you don’t have time at all, you can inbound your product and monitor sales and other activities from your PC or mobile phone.

Getting started is very easy, you can simply sign up to be a seller with any of the large e-commerce websites like Amazon or Jumia. Once your account is approved, then you can start selling. I have been doing this as one of my side hustle for over 3 years now and it is a good source of income for me. 

The secrets to being a successful seller on an e-commerce platform are: 

  1. Knowing the right products to sell.
  2. Knowing the most cost-effective way to source for the products.
  3. Selling Varieties or having lots of assortment. 

Another point to note is that it is difficult to make good sales on an e-commerce platform if you don’t have lots of assortment. For example, if you sell skincare products on an e-commerce store, try to have different types and brands of skin care products not just 1 or 2 brands.
From experience, having from 100 types of products and above will ensure that you make good daily sales online.

However, if you don’t have the capital to start big, you can start small and scale-up. Try to grow up to 500 products and above, because that is when the big profits start rolling in.

3. Blogging

Blogging is one of the best online side hustles for women. A lot of women make good money through blogging and writing content on the internet. The good part is that you can work flexible hours as you wish. You can get started for free with Blogger or WordPress

If you are passionate about something or have good knowledge about anything, you can share the information with the whole world and make money while doing it. Talking about money, there are several ways you can make a lot of money as a blogger. The most popular way, (but not the most lucrative) is Adsence. This involves placing Google adverts on your blog and you get paid when viewers see or click on the ads.


For me, the best way to make money with a blog is through brand deals and sponsorships. This is when brands approach you to help them promote their product through your blog. They pay many times better than what you get from Adsense within a short period. Another great way to make money from a blog is through the selling of products or services to your audience. Whatever you blog about there are always products or services that you can sell to your audience to make extra income. So having a blog is a great way for women to generate good side income monthly.

4. Affiliate Marketing

This is one online side hustle that a lot of women are making good money with from their homes. There are so many online businesses both small and big that offer affiliate programs that you can join. Most of them have good commission rates that can give you a good passive income every month.

To start, just visit any website that offers an affiliate marketing program and register to join. Once you are accepted, you will be given a unique affiliate link that you can promote. With this link, you can promote their product on your social media, blog, youtube channel, ads, etc. When anyone buys the product through your link, you will be paid a percentage.

You can find an affiliate program in every area of business, like skincare, fashion, e-commerce, computer software, ebooks, and lots more. You just need to find an affiliate program out there that resonates with you and start right away. And the good thing is that most of them are free to join.

5. Start A Youtube Channel

Starting a Youtube channel can change your life. You can make a good amount of money monthly with a Youtube channel that is less than a year if you consistently post quality videos that people love. There are so many ladies out there that are leaving a great life because they earn good money as YouTubers. The great thing about having a youtube channel is that it has so many avenues for you to make money even if you are not monetized by Adsense.

If you are passionate about something or have good knowledge about anything, you can share the information with the whole world and make money while doing it on your youtube. It takes some time for you to start making money with your youtube channel. This is because you need to first have 1000 subscribe and 4000 watches hours. When you reach the thresh
hold, it will be worth it if you are in the right nitch.

The sweet part of being a YouTuber is that it gives you time to do other things that you love. You can decide to shoot and edit your videos only at weekends and do other stuff during the weekdays. You can even take some time off during the holidays and people will still be watching your videos. As long as you have good quality content on your Youtube channel, you will get good passive income from it.
