5 Odd Ways to Make Money Online at Night

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Many people work a full-time job but still want to earn extra cash. Luckily, there are some ways to do this that don’t conflict with your nine to five schedule.

For example, you could become a virtual assistant and complete online tasks for clients at night. These jobs can be as simple as tagging images or transcribing videos.

Odd Jobs

Odd jobs may seem a little unconventional, but they fill important roles in our economy. These positions often pay well and do not require a degree. They are also flexible and can be done online at night.

Some examples of odd jobs include airplane painting, a career option that pays about $20 an hour. Many airlines hire plane painters to add their logo or commemorate special events. Similarly, you can sell products on websites such as eBay or Facebook Marketplace. Many professions have sites where you can sell industry materials like teaching guides, exams and worksheets.

Another way to make money online at night is by providing rehearsal venues for musicians, dancers and actors. This is a great way to earn extra income and work around your own schedule. To get started, you should have reliable internet and a comfortable workspace where you can focus for hours at a time. You should also set regular working hours and avoid distractions.

Pet sitting

Pet sitting involves taking care of pets and other household animals while owners are away. Sitters can provide daily feedings, playtime, walks, bathing and other basic care. They also may water plants and mail, keep home security systems active and make homes look lived in. Experience with animals is a must. Professional pet sitters can be found through online services, community bulletin boards and veterinarians’ offices.

A good pet sitter will have references and insurance. They should be flexible to accommodate last-minute requests and overnight assignments. They should be excellent communicators because clients love to receive frequent updates on how their pets are doing.

Hobby sitters typically do not charge much, but they often flake out at the last minute. I have personally received calls from clients who hired a hobby sitter only to find out that they couldn’t make it. This is why it is best to hire a professional. This will give you peace of mind that your pets are being cared for properly.


Cleaning jobs are one of the easiest ways to make money online at night. Most people seeking a cleaner will post their requests on sites like Airtasker or Craigslist. These sites allow you to review the request and then offer a quote for the job. The client then makes a payment via the site to secure your services. Airtasker calls its workers “Taskers” and pays them a 10% to 20% service fee that includes insurance for third party personal injury or property damage.

Other gig economy apps like Angi and TaskRabbit also match contractors to working opportunities, including house cleaning. If you get enough work, you could even turn this into a full-scale business. Then you can hire other cleaners and grow your revenue.

Rehearsal Venues

If you have a rehearsal space in your home or at another venue, you can rent it out to music, dance, and drama groups. It’s a great way to make money while doing something you enjoy. You can also offer transportation services to your guests following the rehearsal. This can save your guests from paying for taxis or renting cars.

If your day job ends in the evening, you can work for food delivery apps like Uber and Lyft. Depending on your location, these gigs may pay more or less than traditional office jobs.

If you have a talent for writing, you can try freelance writing as an online night job. However, this type of job requires a quiet working environment with no distractions. It’s important to find clients who are looking for someone with your skills. A great place to start is Steady, which matches people with freelance jobs. You can also use an app called TranscribeAnywhere to learn how to do transcription.
