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 media – 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 assistant 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.

In fact, most people who make a full-time income with POD are not.

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.

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.

5. 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:

  • They don’t short-change their skills by scrambling for $5 gigs.
  • They prospect for companies on Linkedin, get contacts’ emails and pitch them directly.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t also bid for jobs on Freelance sites, especially if you are just starting out since they can help to build your portfolio.

If you are considering freelance writing, these 5 freelance sites can help you quickly land your first writing gigs.

  1. Fiver
  2. Flexjobs

  5. Guru

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, a house sitting job may be a good idea.

Your role as a home sitter is to 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 do keep in mind that you will be dealing with someone you bare knew from Old Adam.

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 you really do have some things you know. Now 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.

These sites 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 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.

How much can you earn?

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

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 post on how to turn them to cash:

29. Sell your products on Amazon 

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

I know you don’t want to be told, but let me just remind you:

Amazon gets over 206 million visitors a month. So, if you sell anything, 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. And it’s time to put up your store on Amazon.

And the best part is that you don’t even 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.

If you are like me, then that’s not too bad as extra cash!

So how do you do that?

Swagbucks and Rakuten are two apps that can get you cashbacks 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 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.
