30 Part-Time Night Jobs To Make $5000 a Month

Do you want to scale up your side income and looking for well-paying part time night job ideas?

I work at night myself. So I won’t say it’s as easy as cheese. But it is what it is:

More Hustles = More Income. Right?

So if you are ready to burn the oil for more income streams, I promise this post will help you.

In this post, you will see about 30 well-paying night jobs you can easily fit into your part time schedule.

So here we go…

1. Virtual Assistant Job

Your job as a virtual assistant is to record reports, schedule meetings, or post updates to social medials – the kind of stuff you would likely do on your bed with a cup of coffee.

If you are a beginner, you may start with about $21,120 (payscale). But with some more experience, your salary can go up to $59,825/yr.

You can also check out my detailed post on virtual assitant jobs here.

2. Print on demand

A print-on-demand job is one of the most paid online jobs you can run as a part time night job. 

If you are cool with design, then you can make a full-time income with POD. You probably note that I didn’t use the word great.

It’s because you don’t have to be a Davinci. Well, most peeps who make a full-time income with POD are not, anyway.

So how does it works?

  • You upload your design to Teespring or Redbubbles.
  • They display it on their products.
  • You continue to earn almost half of the sales price in commission each time a product is sold.

No inventory, No BS.

To get started, I recommend watching a couple of youtube videos on POD. You can also follow Greg Gottfried’s videos on youtube.

3. Start a money-making blog

If you love sharing your ideas, then blogging is one of the best ways for you to earn passive income.

For example, I make money every minute with this blog. But I’m not on my desk all day staring at my PC like a Bush baby.

But how much can you earn?

How much you will earn is unlimited. The more visitors you get, the more your income grows.

If you need help, you can check out my detailed post on How to start a blog.

4. Freelance writing jobs

If you don’t want to own a blog for yourself, but you still love to share your thoughts, then a freelance writing job may be your thing.

Some freelance writers earn up to $250 per article while others would earn just about $50 for the same article.

I know a couple of top earning writers, and here is what they do differently:

  • Value appreciation: They don’t short-change their skills.
  • Prospecting: They prospect for companies on Linked, get contacts’ emails and pitch them directly.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t also bid for jobs on Freelance sites – for a start.

Moreso, they can help to get some experience and build your portfolio if you are just starting.

So if you are considering freelance writing, I would suggest you sign up on these 5 top freelance sites to easily land your first writing jobs.

  1. Fiver
  2. Flexjobs
  3. Upwork
  4. Freelancer
  5. Guru

5. Search engine evaluator job

Your job as a search engine evaluator is to help businesses study how people search for products on Google or Bings.

With this job, you can earn up to 15 per hour every night.

Some companies hiring search engine evaluators are AppenLionbridge, and Apex.

6. Voice over job

Did you know you can rake in $22 to $100 per hour as a voice-over artist?

Let’s see some proof:

And fortunately, you don’t need a deep roaring voice of a Disneys’ Simba. You only need your unique voice.

To apply for voice-over artist jobs, check out voices123voicesLionbridgeBunny studio.

7. House sitting job

Some home-owners won’t be around for weeks and need someone to watch over their homes and pets.

If you love the fun of touring different environments, then a house sitting job may just be for you.

Your job is to help watch over the home and make sure the pets are safe. But keep in mind that house sitting is a bit riskier than most night time jobs.

Most house sitting job sites would tell you they verify home-owners. But I think you have to also keep in mind that you will be dealing with someone you bare knew from Old Adam.

I would also suggest you check out my detailed post on 13 best sites to find house sitting jobs.

8. Take up a graphic design job

If you know how to make logos or any form of graphics, then this may be the best night job for you.

But just how much can you earn from this job?

An average graphic designer earns up to $50,000/yr. But with more experience on the job, you should close up to $66,000/yr or more.

To work as a graphic designer, you only need to be comfortable with Adobe Photoshop or Gimp.

Even if you don’t have the skills already, with a couple of month training on Udemy, you should be ready.

9. Design websites

Web design is one of the best paying jobs – although it’s a bit techy.

Since these jobs are mostly remote, you will easily fit it into your schedule as a night job.

So how much can you earn?

For a beginner, you can expect between $3,500 to $5,000 on average. But with more experience on the job, your salary can go up to $8,000 a month. 

To get started, you need some knowledge of HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

Fortunately, you can pick up HTML, CSS, and Javascript in a couple of months with a web design course on Linkedin learning or Udemy.

10. Customer service representative job

If you are always on the phone more than an average Joe already, this may be a great night job for you.

Your job here is to help companies resolve customer questions through phone calls or webchat.

Talking about salary, 25% of customer service reps $42,900/yr on average while some top earners earn even more.

To work as a customer service rep, you only need some patience and, of course, you are going to be a bit more chatty.

You can make a surprisingly good income by simply flipping items on Craigslist. 

Now, if you have your day job already, it can still fit into your schedule as a part-time night job or weekend job.

Here is how it works: 

You buy items cheaply on Craiglist, refurbish, and flip them for a multiple of the original prices.

Probably seem so simple! But I know a couple who actually make up to $7,000/m on Craigslist just doing that.

13. Night Babysitting job

If you thought babysitting only works in the day, I would love to shock you like an eel.

Night babysitters help take care of kids whose parents also do night jobs.

So your job here is to prepare dinners, help with homework, and other night routines for kids.

With a babysitting job, you can expect to earn up to $41,000 per year.

To get started, let your neighbors and colleagues know about it, and you will likely get clients through them.

All you need to do is list it on Airbnb for short-stay visitors.

So ease + cheese!

Some home owners earn up to $1000 in extra income on AirBnb. But if you live in a busy city, you will definitely earn more.

I know it’s not much, but remember, it’s just a easy passive income to add to your purse.

22. Sell your skills in form of E-books

Do you know your skills yet? If you do, then it’s time to put your knowledge into E-book.

With an E-book, you will create a passive income stream that continues to make money – even when you roll under your duvet.

But I don’t have any skills?

Well, you are probably the only one around, and you need to follow Elon next time he goes to Mars.

Okay, don’t take the joke too seriously.

But here it is, you really do have some things you know. Let’s see:

  • You play the guitar: You may not be Yuja Wang, but at least, you know better than the guys next door.
  • You know how to speak French.
  • OR You just know how to put a troublesome puppy to sleep.

But one question: How do you sell your E-book?

Simple! E-book publishing platforms.

E-book publishing platforms receive millions of visitors every month. So if your work is great, trust me, you would probably get sales faster than you will pinch yourself.

Amazon Kindle, KoboWriting, Lulu, Nuke Press, Blurb.

23. Food delivery job

I probably won’t suggest a food delivery job beyond 8 pm. That’s just for security reasons. But you can, at least, work in the evening till 7 pm, and you would earn pretty well.

There is a simple reason for that:

Most delivery drivers retire home in the evening, so customers often offer better tips for the few ones.

According to Indeed, an average food delivery driver earns about $20 per hour.

If you are planning to give this a shot as a part time night job, some of the top companies you can work for are: Doordash, Grubhub, Ubereats, Postmates.

24. Shop for People

Like a food delivery job, you will get more tips from customers and earn more if you work in the evening.

I think 7 pm is great, but you need to rethink going beyond 8 pm for any form of delivery job.

With this job, you can make up to $13/hr on average. But your hourly pay can go up to $20 depending on customer orders and tips.

Some of the best companies that will pay you to shop for people are InstacartShipt, and PostMates.

  • Etsy floods her store with buyers, and they share the profit.

Here is how it works:

  • Sign up on at least 5 picture-sharing sites (See the list below).
  • Browse through the galleries to have a feel of the types of pictures they have.

28. Sell your scraps

Okay, you won’t be selling those groceries that have been in the fridge since the last decade.

So what it is?

You probably have a couple of old electronics, DVDs, furniture, or scrap metals.

There is no reason to hoard them when you can turn them to a new income. All you need is your PC and 1 hour of our night on Craigslist.

Just check out my posts on how to turn them to cash here.

29. Sell your products on Amazon 

Still looking for more part time night job ideas? You need to try Amazon.

Okay, you don’t want to be told, but let me just remind you: Amazon gets over 206 million visitors a month.

Now, if you currently sell some stuff offline, maybe clothes, bags, or baby products, I want you to do something:

‘Take a minute and imagine what that can mean for your business’

If your answer is positive, then we are on the same page. So what is next? Set up a store for yourself on Amazon.

You don’t need to worry about shipping. Amazon will take care of that.

Just grab your popcorn and watch your sales roll in – or go to bed and catch your sleep.

30. Finally – Get your free money first

You are probably losing some free money right now, and you need to get them back.

What do I mean?

Suppose you spend $500 on grocery shopping a month, and you get a 5% refund. You just made $25.

And in one year? $525. Not bad?

So how do you get your rebates?

Two popular apps to claim your rebates are Swagbucks and Rakuten.

With any of the two apps, you can get refunds at over 2000 online stores – including Amazon, eBay, and Walmart. Some stores will even give you up to 40% refund with these apps.

My final thoughts on working a part time night jobs

I agree it’s not easy to work a part time night job. I work mostly at night, myself and I know some times your coffee even won’t help.

But the truth is, it is well worth it.

For example, if you put in just 2 hours a night, you can scale your side income to extra $2000, $3000 or $5,000, put the money into your retirement for a easy future.

If you have tried any of these jobs, I would also like to know your thoughts.
