75+Ways for Introverts to Make Money

1. Write Code of Blockchain Companies

This is the future. If you already have basic computer skills and you’re interested in learning how to program for blockchain technology, here are a few job titles that may be of interest to you: Solidity Developer, Blockchain Developer / Engineer, Blockchain Software Developer, Full Stack Blockchain Developer, Front End Blockchain Developer / Engineer. Most blockchain technology companies will require some type of coding knowledge. They would want you to write code for their decentralized applications (dApps), smart contracts, blockchain systems, etc. 

Every company will be looking for something different in terms of the type of experience they are looking for so it is important to read through each job listing carefully before submitting your application. Make sure that you have some solid programming skills before pursuing a career in this area since it can be very challenging and demanding, mainly due to the intense amount of knowledge that you will need to have.

2. Play to Earn (P2E) NFT Games

Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs) have taken the crypto world by storm. Do yourself a favor and start your education in this emerging technology space. It is definitely the future. It’s the millennial introvert’s dream that involves playing video games. You get to be your own boss (roll out of bed when it suits), improve your hand-eye coordination, and make some cash just to play games. Most games revolve around racing cars, teaming up with other players to compete and beat the opposition in medieval conflict settings. These activities require the purchase of specific NFTs to participate.

Rainmaker takes this genre to the next level. It boasts being the first “Cryptocurrency and Stock Fantasy Gaming Platform”. It uses real life stock and crypto market events as part of the game. It is designed to educate and entertain you. You learn stock market trading strategies, test your investment strategies and gain experiences that you can apply in life.

3. Flipping Domains on Web 3

This is a variation of the traditional website flipping strategy but with more upside potential. Currently, you have to renew your domain name annually with the Domain Name Registrar you purchased your domain name from. Effectively, you don’t own it but are leasing it (Let that sink in).

Unstoppable Domains saw a gap in the crypto space and has created a platform for the little guys/gals to participate in the future of domain trading. You save money as it only requires a one time purchase and it is yours for life. This is why a decentralized web is so important to have a level playing field for everyone.

4. Sell Your Digital Art

This is the Non Fungible Token (NFT) space that is really catching the attention of the crypto community. Your intellectual property is protected as a one of a kind piece of artwork that is recorded on the blockchain for eternity. Check out Opensea as the marketplace to sell your artwork. Think about this like you’re selling stock photos but in the virtual space. You could create a theme that becomes a once off collection of your artworks that you price according to the unique features you add.

5. Video Game Streamer

Get on Twitch, YouTube, or Facebook (Metaverse) which are popular streaming platforms that host content from a plethora of niches. This will be your jam especially if you already have a favorite game or style of game that you enjoy playing and are good at. This assumes you already have the PC (and ancillary hardware) with the required amount of grunt needed to offer your community a seamless viewing experience. The advantage of Twitch is that it offers affiliate programs; keep this in mind when you are considering monetizing your personal brand.

6. Cybersecurity Freelancer

This usually requires a degree in computer science, engineering for having experience in these areas. Getting the certification is the next step and here you can decide if your interests lie in digital and computer forensics, database design of firewalls and other security measures. Ensuring the client’s company is industry standard compliant and adopts best practice in data security are also part of the job. You should also have high written and oral communication skills as part of the role is to educate and train staff members in being security conscious about data handling to reduce the chances of ransomware attacks.

7. Computer System Administrator

This is for the people who like to create IT systems that may overlap with keeping a company’s cybersecurity system up to date and hacker proof. You most likely have to have a computing related degree and specialized IT certification in Windows or Linux environments to take on this role. Introverts who enjoy a challenge around problem solving while under pressure will relish the opportunity to show off their troubleshooting skills.

You most likely have to have a computing related degree and specialized IT certification in Windows or Linux environments to take on this role. Introverts who enjoy a challenge around problem solving while under pressure will relish the opportunity to show off their troubleshooting skills.

Don’t forget the all important interpersonal skills as well because not everyone in the organization is up to your level of expertise. So, having good communication skills, patience and tolerance are going to get you further up the ranks.

High Demand Roles

8. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Freelancer

This is for the people who like to create IT systems that may overlap with keeping a company’s cybersecurity system up to date and hacker proof. You most likely have to have a computing related degree and specialized IT certification in Windows or Linux environments to take on this role. Introverts who enjoy a challenge around problem solving while under pressure will relish the opportunity to show off their troubleshooting skills.

9. Freelance social media management 

There are a few key things that social media managers need to do: Build a portfolio of your work. This can include case studies, blog posts, or even just screenshots of your work. Get certified. There are several certification programs for social media management available that will help you to stand out from the competition. Take the time to become certified. Develop a niche.

In addition to being a “social media manager,” you might want to develop a more specialized niche such as search engine optimization (SEO) for social media, etc. Get your name out there. This can mean blogging about social media management, working on personal projects for non-profit organizations, etc. Join relevant groups and forums.

This is one of the best ways to stay up-to-date with changes and build your credibility. Network with other professionals and learn from their experiences. Keep developing your projects and working with non-profit organizations. This helps you to stay relevant, build your portfolio of work, and get experience interacting with clients on social media.

10. Create YouTube videos

Another way to make money online is to start your own YouTube channel. By establishing yourself as an expert or personality, you could start getting paid through any number of companies like Patreon, which allows viewers to donate monthly to their favorite YouTubers. Additionally, you can create your website via WordPress and monetize it with Google AdSense. This is a great way to build one of your many online businesses!

11. Video Editor for YouTube

You have an exceptional eye not only for detail and storytelling. This is because the raw footage you get from your client may be hours’ worth. Your job when video editing is to condense it into a 20-60 minute clip without losing the important facets and main message of the video. You have specialized software, a laptop that is up to specification to do the job. What if you are interested but do not have the qualifications and are on a tight budget? Check out Udemy or Coursera which are training platforms offering courses for beginners. The beauty of their business model is that you pay for the courses you want to take.

12. Animator (Multimedia Artist)

This is a specialized field that requires 3D animation skills including qualifications in computer animation and graphic arts. Animators are unique in that they have strong artistic skills combined with computing expertise. The top 3 skills listed by employers are Adobe Creative Suite, 3DS Max and Maya. A must is also making sure you develop your communication skills as there is a lot of teamwork involved in creating animations. Being observant and an astute people/animal watcher greatly helps you create animations especially close ups of facial expressions that make your work believable.

13. Online Graphic Design Business

The introverts I have come to know have hidden talents in the arts. So, if you are that introvert who also has a burning desire to start an online graphic design business, read on. The first step is to come up with a business plan. This should include your business goals, how you plan on achieving them, and your target market. You will then need to create a website and set up an online shop and create a portfolio of your work. It will help with marketing yourself to potential clients.

You can use social media, online advertising, or networking to get started. A great way to get your name out there and start increasing your web presence is with a blog. You can write about design, marketing, or even just things that are going on in your life. This will not only build rapport with potential clients but also help you gain exposure online.

14. Buying and selling domain names

Choose a domain name that is relevant to your niche. Look at your competition and search for a domain name similar to theirs, but not as popular or as well known. Check if the domain name you want is available by typing it in at the most popular website domains. Research the market value of the domain name.

Before you buy a domain name, do some research to determine how much it is worth and whether or not its use is beneficial to your business model. Buy the domain name from a reputable seller. The seller can be a website that deals exclusively in domain names or a private individual who registered the domain name him/herself.

Make sure that your payment method is secure and offers some form of buyer protection, like PayPal. Sell the domain name for a profit. This is the big payoff. Once you’ve bought a domain name that has some value, you can sell it for a profit if someone else agrees that your price is fair. If not, there’s nothing to stop you from just holding onto the domain and waiting for potential buyers to come to you with an offer.

15. Flipping websites

Flipping websites for profit is a great way to make some extra money on the side. Find a website that is for sale from site brokers Flippa and Digital Point. Research the website to make sure it is worth buying. The next step is to gather information about the previous earnings of the site, this information is available in Google Analytics.

Make an offer to buy the website and then renovate the site. Add relevant and high-quality content to the website to improve its Google rankings. The goal is for it to reach page 1 ranking by organic searches. Sell the website.

16. Create digital content (and make money passively)

There’s a huge demand for digital content these days, whether it be webinars or podcasts. You could start your own business as a digital content creator and establish your rates, based on how much work is required of you. If you know how to code or design things well in Photoshop, sell your services by establishing yourself as an independent contractor and sign up with Upwork or Fiverr. Don’t forget that both companies allow freelancers under 18 to sign up, too.

You can also protect your content so that only people who pay a monthly fee (or make a purchase) can access your information. That means you get paid every month as long as subscribers keep renewing their subscriptions. Here are some good examples of digital products: eBooks, online courses, membership sites, templates/designs that require some work first but can be sold repeatedly to generate passive income such as software and video tutorials.

Shopping Online

75+ Ways for Introverts to Make Money

17. Promote products on Instagram

The first way to promote products on Instagram is to use hashtags that other people will use too. People just like yourself will then see your product and might even buy it for themselves. The next suggestion is to use keywords in your captions so that other users can just search the terms and find your product. You should also always add a link to your online store when you post a photo of a product because not everyone uses Instagram.

Another way to promote products on Instagram is by following influencers who have similar products to your own. This way, they might follow you back and possibly show off your products to their followers which will increase the number of people who see your product. 

18. Sell handmade items online

Think back to art and craft lessons at school. Did you enjoy working with your hands and find it fun to create new objects using everyday materials like colored paper, glitter and wood glue? It’s time to channel that creativity again.

If you love the idea of selling your products online but don’t want to go through all of the trouble of manufacturing them yourself, selling handmade items might be for you. Etsy is a great place to sell your crafts and there are other websites out there like ArtFire that make it easy for you to start selling today.

19. Sell vintage clothing

Vintage or preloved clothing, even pieces that are torn or have holes in them has become all the rage lately and it’s not hard to find an audience interested in reselling their treasures through eBay or Shopify. If you have a closet full of old clothes but don’t want the hassle of finding a new home for everything, turn into a consignment shop or sell items yourself.

Create a niche and be known for a certain era, for example, you could focus on 50’s style letterman college jackets and Buddy Holly string ties, or 60’s psychedelic mini or midi skirts, white knee length boots for the ladies and stovepipe trousers beloved by teddy boys! 

20. Sell on Etsy

A great way for introverts to make money online is by selling handmade crafts or vintage items on Etsy. This innovative website will allow you to list your products and services at absolutely no cost whatsoever. Build trust with your buyers. So it is important to put some thought into your “About” Page. Be real; people buy from people they know and like. Your art or handmade craft is an expression of yourself. When describing your creation, don’t be afraid to share what inspired you to make that piece.

21. Sell on eBay

Whether you know your way around using PayPal or not, selling on eBay can be one of the easiest ways to make money online as an introvert because all you have to do is find something to sell and post it online for everyone else to see. Check out local markets for items to help build your inventory. You may find certain items for sale move faster than others. Drill down and become a specialist in that niche.

22. Sell on Amazon

Amazon has become one of the easiest ways for people to make money online as an introvert by selling their products and getting a commission from it instead of trying to sell someone else’s products for a percentage cut. This strategy generally works hand in hand with blogging.

If you are wondering what to blog about, the usual answer is to write what you are passionate about. That’s always good starting advice, but if you don’t feel lit up, how about writing about your personal journey to discovering your true passion…now, that’s a start right? 

23. Become an affiliate marketer

If you’re good at selling things on eBay, why not sell your products on Amazon? This is another great way for entrepreneurs who are looking to establish themselves as entrepreneurs can use it by starting an FBA (Fulfilled by Amazon) account. Not only will this allow you to grow your online following, but it can create long-term sustainable income for you.

24. Start an online arbitrage side hustle


a product to sell. There are a lot of products you could sell online, but it’s important to choose a product that you’re familiar with and that you can find good deals on. Now start scouting for deals on different websites. Compare prices and find products that you can buy for a lower price and sell for a higher price. Then create an online store and start marketing your products. Use social media, email marketing, and other online advertising to promote your store. Take advantage of coupons and other promotions that can help you get discounts on the products you buy to sell.

Promo codes can often offer significant savings – sometimes up to 50% off! Keep track of your inventory- not just your items that are in stock, but also your items that you don’t have enough of and any items that are out of stock. Keeping good records will help you better manage your business, so it’s a vital part of running an online arbitrage store.

25. Sell photos online

Choose a platform to sell your photos. There are several platforms available, such as Shutterstock and Getty Images, that allow you to sell stock photos royalty-free. Make sure your stock photos are high quality and accurately represent your style and brand. Market your photos to potential buyers. Make sure you create a portfolio that showcases your best work and use social media and other marketing channels to reach potential buyers. Negotiate pricing with buyers. Once you have found buyers for your photos, work with them on licensing terms. Track your photos’ performance. Use the platform’s analytics tools to track where each photo is used, and make sure you get paid for its use.

26. Direct Sales/MLM’s (multi-level marketing)


MLM’s are more introvert-friendly than others. The “party plan” approach to direct sales is a good fit for those who enjoy hosting at home and meeting people in a casual setting. However, this method requires a certain level of outgoingness at first as you’ll be expected to meet potential customers and possibly give presentations.

If you choose to join an MLM program, please do your own research first! Some companies have business models and programs that are usually highly overpriced and the products may not deliver what they promise. And many feel that these companies prey on women by pressuring them into buying products instead of being paid commissions from real sales.    

Leverage Your Knowledge

75+ Ways for Introverts to Make Money

27. Teach English abroad

If you’re bilingual, moving to a foreign country and becoming an ESL teacher is one of the best ways to make money. It is not necessary but would boost your chances if you obtained Teach English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification. Do your research on the requirements for teaching experience as a prerequisite to teaching abroad as it is dependent on the country you are wishing to visit.  

28. Sell courses

With all this talk about entrepreneurship lately, we should mention selling educational courses as another way on our list of 77 ways to make money online. With sites like Udemy and Skillshare offering high-quality courses, there has never been a better time than now to create an online course where as you establish yourself as an authority in whatever industry you choose.

29. Teach life skills courses

With sites like Udemy allowing instructors from any background to teach their unique knowledge or skill set, becoming an online instructor has never been easier. By uploading videos about how to learn a particular skill set, in this case, “life skills,” you could start a career in teaching others how to do something important in their lives. As a bonus, you could even upload your content on YouTube to make money with AdSense while you teach.

30. Become a virtual life coach

Another way to make money online as an introvert is by becoming a virtual life coach. You know your strengths which could be that you are great at time management or human motivation. Position yourself as the virtual life coach who specializes in supporting and advising clients through email or text message. There could be more clients in this niche than you thought existed.

31. Teach English online via Skype

Are you bilingual or multilingual? You can still teach English from the comfort of your own home even if COVID is making it challenging to travel overseas. Teaching English has become one of the most popular jobs and effortless ways to make money online for many countries. By becoming a tutor on VIPKid, you’re able to give lessons over Skype, helping Chinese students learn English in America by talking with them face-to-face via your webcam. Sites like VerbalPlanet and Italki allow users to sign up and begin teaching almost instantly. 

32. Write and publish an eBook

One of the best things about Amazon these days is that they’ve taken the idea of publishing eBooks to new heights, allowing authors everywhere to publish their books without too much effort. While you can always self-publish your book on Amazon, it’s also possible to become an eBook author for someone else if you prefer.

33. Technical Writer

If you already have experience in engineering, health and science, this could be a great side gig for you. The brief is to make complex technical language easy to read and comprehend for the layperson without sacrificing accuracy and important details. You may be the mediator between highly specialized technical groups who need to submit reports to government bureaucrats who need to digest large chunks of complex data that are the basis for political decisions. 

34. Get paid to write reviews 

Many companies pay writers to write reviews for them – these include everything from small businesses to major corporations. Often, you can pick and choose which products or services you’d like to review – whether it’s to test products or give valuable feedback for a hotel that you recently visited.

Sites like “Get Paid To Review” and “Paid Viewpoint” can help connect you with these companies. Once you’ve been approved, simply select the products or services you’d like to review, write your reviews, and wait for payment!

You can also get paid for doing product giveaways and free trials. Sites like Ebates, FatWallet, and SlickDeals are great for finding these opportunities – simply create an account, monitor the sites you’re registered on for the latest offers, participate in the offers that interest you, and wait for your money!

35. Start a freelance writing business

Freelance writing of content for website owners and other businesses is another way for introverts to make money. Since the internet continues growing with sites like LinkedIn, more and more people need writers who can produce quality content. Even if you have no professional experience whatsoever, it’s faster than ever before to start becoming a freelance writer nowadays. So what are you waiting for?

If You Have An Eye For Detail…

75+ Ways for Introverts to Make Money

If you love categorizing information (and websites) according to a topic, this is a great gig that can make you good money. You are curating a list of the top websites with high quality content on a specific subject that you publish every month. This way the information is current and a whole bunch of bloggers will be very happy to be listed as it implies their website has high authority on the subject matter.

37. Become a proof reader 

Do you enjoy reading and have a sharp eye for detail? If so, proofreading might be the perfect freelance career for you! Proof readers are responsible for correcting errors in written material, making sure that all text is accurate and consistent. The basics of proofreading include how to read and mark up text and familiarity with Microsoft Word and using the editing tools within the document. Perfect if you are a grammar Nazi and think being a freelance copy editor is the best thing since sliced bread.

38. Video Game Tester

This has got to be one of the coolest gigs on the planet. Imagine getting paid to play free games and to find bugs in new games before they hit the market. However, there are serious elements to this role. Again, you have to have an eye for detail and be able to spot problems no matter how insignificant. This means playing the game over and over again, as the developers fine tune the game after taking on your feedback.

You should also have very good communication skills as your feedback has to be conveyed in a way that makes sense to the game/software developers.

39. Website (Beta) Tester

Get paid testing websites. If you’re good at finding bugs and errors on websites, then joining a website like UserTesting could be one of the easiest ways to make money online as an introvert. This company is looking for introverted people who can find glitches or problems with web pages that regular people don’t see or understand yet. 

40. Take paid surveys

Start making money online by answering online surveys. There are countless websites out there that will pay for your opinion by taking surveys and participating in market research. You can earn money through the surveys by joining a free survey junkies program. Survey Junkie has nearly 5 million subscribers, it’s the world’s leading survey site. Survey Junkie also receives rated Excellent on Trustpilot from over 24,000 reviews, a high rating for any survey provider.

While most of these sites do require a certain demographic or set of traits, there’s no harm in signing up with a couple of different places if you enjoy sharing your opinion about products and services anyway! In time you will have a list of your favorite survey sites to rotate through.

41. Evaluating Websites

Even though Google uses very smart algorithms to rank millions of websites, it will require human eyeballs to verify its results. Appen is an Australian company that has part time flexible jobs and posts these positions on LinkedIn. As well as evaluating a website for its functionality and ease of navigation to pages, Appen also posts micro-task roles such as video data collecting and transcript data collecting.

42. Transcribe interviews

If you’re looking for another way to make money online, what about transcribing? With services like Rev, it’s easy for introverts who prefer writing over speaking to get paid to transcribe others’ words. Even if you have no professional experience, there are many opportunities available. Transcription work requires accuracy and attention to detail; these are highly desirable traits you should have.

43. Data Entry Assistant

Don’t despair if you think you need a college or university degree to land even a part time/casual gig. As a Data Entry Assistant, your role is to input data accurately, which can be repetitive. Your typing speed should be 50 words per minute at a minimum to score data entry work. You are privy to sensitive information and should have signed a confidentiality agreement with the client. This may include customer information, inventory data, or other information as required by the company. You may also be responsible for verifying the accuracy of data that has been entered, and for maintaining records of the data entered.

Roles For Introverts – Remote Work

75+ Ways for Introverts to Make Money

44. Become a virtual assistant

If you’re organized and find yourself constantly helping others out, becoming a virtual assistant might be the right path for you. Not only are virtual assistants making an average of $11 per hour according to Indeed, but this could be a great way for introverts to make money online without ever speaking to anyone in person.

If you’re an introvert with decent knowledge of different software programs, have mad typing skills then this is one of the easiest ways to make money online for introverts because all you have to do is help people around the world manage their Twitter accounts and Facebook pages. 

45. Email/Inbox Management

After initial training, you are matched to your client. Your primary role is to filter, check and reply to emails, create templates based on the client’s writing style. Check out InboxDone who are keen to provide professional development and upskill you to more responsible tasks like scheduling meetings and eventually moving up to becoming known as the right hand man/woman of your client. You are expected to have a solid internet connection, a reliable laptop with a camera and microphone, good written and verbal communication skills.

46. Virtual Bookkeeper

Ever thought of starting your own bookkeeping business? it is the perfect gig for the introvert who likes spreadsheets, keeping track of income/expenditure, and presenting summaries in tables or graphics. Your job is to ensure that the financial paperwork of an organization (usually a small business whose owner is too busy to keep on top of this very important part of their business) is in order. Your bookkeeping business may include managing payment of monthly bills, sending out customer invoices, chasing late accounts, and paying the business’s creditors in a timely fashion.

Pro tip- it pays to have the usual booking or accounting software like Quickbooks and a laptop with enough grunt (RAM) to perform the tasks required. It may be a given for you, but please have external hard drives to back up EVERYTHING from your laptop.

47. Email/Text Chat Support Operator

Yes, this one requires interaction with another human being but thankfully not face to face and as a bonus, it is via chat rather than video. Check out Support.com if you are a tech geek who can troubleshoot glitches in Microsoft PC or Apple devices. It requires the ability to think on your feet and multitask but the gig is attractive as the company offers benefits like life insurance and even paid vacations. The fact that they boast 24/7 support to their clients means they are hiring competent and qualified staff worldwide.

48. Email Marketing/Autoresponders

You sign up with an email marketing company that sends your campaign out to their subscriber base. You could potentially earn $100+ per hour sending emails. One downside of email marketing is that it’s not passive; you need to log on at least once a day if not more to check for responses and send new messages. Your main goal as an email marketer should be to make each campaign profitable so choose the subject line carefully!

49. Get paid to download apps

Allow your phone to be used as an advertising space for different brands and companies by downloading paid mobile apps. If you were to download and try out the different apps that companies want you to test for them, this would be a great way to get paid. The main advantage of this is that it takes only about half an hour of your time if you choose to do so. Install the apps on your phone, open them up and follow their instructions for testing it out. You will be paid based on the number of minutes you use each of the apps. It can vary from $0.60 to $4 per app that you test! That’s a pretty decent amount just for downloading and testing a single app. Once you’re done with testing out an app, just delete it and download another one.

The only thing to keep in mind is that not all apps are available on iOS devices. Android phones are usually more than capable of supporting multiple apps, so chances are you’ll be able to work with this.

50. Paid To Click (PTC) Websites/Surveys

These websites pay you for completing online tasks such as reading emails, playing games, and taking short surveys. Check out Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) which is a site that businesses use to find and hire crowd workers. You log on and complete simple tasks that usually involve filling out forms or proofreading text. It’s possible to earn a decent amount of money through MTurk but it will take some time to build up your income.

Set up MTurk with Google Chrome to maximize your earning potential. Use multiple browser tabs so you can hit jobs quickly without having to switch windows every 5 minutes! Read instructions carefully before accepting any HITs (Human Intelligence Tasks). Set up a dedicated email address (Gmail) to use solely for MTurk. You can even auto-filter Turk messages to their tab within your inbox so you don’t have to go digging through spam folders. 

51. Data Entry/Crowdsourcing

This can be done at any time and you’re free to choose your own schedule. To do data entry, simply log on when you feel like working and start taking short typing tests. The faster you type, the more chances you have of receiving an assignment! But keep in mind that most companies will prioritize accuracy over speed so there’s no need to rush through tasks. You can request payment once your balance reaches $10, but this money is usually sent via a check in the mail which can take up to 12 business days to receive.

52. TeleHealth and Fitness Trainer

Even if your COVID affected city is under mandatory lockdown, you can still reach out to your clients who need motivation and the presence of a health and fitness trainer to supervise their workouts. That 6 am appointment which was scheduled at the gym is now via skype on your phone or iPad. How good is being able to train clients without commuting; you could potentially squeeze in one more client per day.

As you are training your client in real time, the human connection is not lost and there is still time to plan follow up appointments. Encourage your clients to use exercise tracking apps that relay data to you for the days they are not using your services. This keeps them accountable and maintains your client retention numbers.

Fun Fact: Introverts are great entrepreneurs

I don’t know if extroverts are genuinely better at entrepreneurship or if it’s a myth. Some argue that introverts can be a little more competitive because they can develop critical thinking skills as well as an empowering personality. Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, and Mark Zuckerberg are famous examples of business leaders who are classified as introverts.

Transport, Homecare And Pet Services

75+ Ways for Introverts to Make Money

53. Earn as an Uber Driver

Saying goodbye to wasting time at your 9 to 5 job is as easy as saying hello to the freedom of being your own boss through Uber. You don’t have to talk to your paying passengers if it’s not your jam. The idea behind this company is simple: Become a driver, pick up passengers, earn money.

With so many people looking for easy ways to make money, this service has exploded and grown to become one of the best opportunities out there today. You will need to have a current driver’s license, a clean and reliable car with detailing of the interior done before you open for business. Be proud of the vehicle that you are using to transport your clients around town.

54. Dog Walking

For many introverts, the company of animals instead of humans would be the preferred choice. Here you get to kill 2 birds with one stone. You get time to think, walk a dog and have fresh air and exercise at the same time. Start with placing ads in the local papers, put up posters at your local community hall or library or reach out to friends and family as the first point of contact.

Be reliable, turn up when expected, do a good job and ask for referrals. In no time, this will snowball into a nice side hustle that pays you to hang out with pets that you would have done for free. Thank me later.

55. Food Delivery

It can be as simple as signing up with Uber Eats, MenuLog or FoodPanda; you could probably name a few more services that YOU use in your local area. You will need to have reliable transportation and insurance, but what if you don’t have a car? Invest in an electric pushbike but if you’re old school, by all means hop on your conventional bicycle and burn a few calories while making a nice amount of cash.

Pro-tips: Always arrive on time for your shifts; be courteous to your customers and make sure that you deliver their food promptly. As always, be careful when driving in the city and avoid accidents at all costs.

56. House Cleaning

First, you need to take the time to research your state and local laws about what licenses and permits you’ll need. You will likely need a business license to start any kind of cleaning business in your area. You should also check with your city’s zoning board to determine whether or not you will be able to add house cleaning services to your list of offerings.

Next, consider how much money you want to make in the house cleaning business when deciding what type of service packages and pricing packages you’ll offer. It might also help if you identify the niche that the house cleaning business will play in the market. Are you going for a higher-end clientele? Or, do just about everyone qualify as a potential client? The options are endless. 

57. Lawnmowing Business

Being an independent lawn mowing business owner has many pluses, one of which is that you are not locked into a franchise agreement with terms that favor the franchisor. Sure you have to have your lawn mowing and hedging equipment, reliable transportation, and trailer but it also means your overheads are lower. You could start by letter dropping your local area, and offer special rates for retirees in exchange for referrals.

As a side hustle, there is less pressure to completely book out your schedule. Instead, you take a slow and steady approach to build your clientele by word of mouth.  

58. Homestyle cooking for busy families

You are the introvert who channels her creative talents through cooking wholesome meals. If you have a background in nutrition, you can certainly tailor meals that cater to fussy eaters with specific dietary requirements. Family style cooked meals delivered to the door of busy working couples with young families are coming into greater demand.

By expanding your repertoire to include vegetarian, vegan and gluten free dishes, you have just about all your bases covered. Make sure you are across safe food handling procedures and work with your local council in observing these regulations.

59. Pickup and Drop Off Laundry Service

You make your money doing what other people find is a chore. By providing a pickup and drop off laundry service, you get paid to wash and iron your clients’ clothes. Again, for the introverts who love clean and tidy, this is a low stress gig that gives you much satisfaction in making sure laundry is not only clean but ironed to military standard perfection.

Start small by targeting areas with working couples who have young families. They will think you are the bee’s knees as you deliver exemplary and consistent service. Make sure you have reliable transport and factor in the costs of using commercial laundromats as it will save you time and make your business efficient.

60. Vehicle Detailer 

You don’t require a college degree and can start as a side hustle with the potential to grow into a full time business. This is one for introverts who like everything clean, neat and tidy. Your goal is to give back to the customer their car in showroom shine condition. Initial outlays for this gig include special car detergent and waxes, chamois, interior cleaners that are friendly to the duco.

It will pay to have a high powered car vacuum cleaner that can get into the tight spaces between car seats. Get creative and start marketing yourself as a door-to-door mobile detailer. Be strategic and offer a better rate if you have more than one customer at the same site. 

61. Specialist Investment Property Exit Cleaner

As demand for rental properties soars, landlords are keen to capitalize and have their investment properties tenanted as soon as possible. Especially with COVID still very much circulating in the population, you as the specialty investment property exit cleaner must adhere to the standards issued by your local health authorities.

Tasks include sweeping, vacuuming, the detailed dusting of ALL surfaces especially the hard to reach pelmets and wiping down ceiling fans and lights. Make sure the kitchen and bathroom areas are sparkling as these two areas are what prospective tenants focus on during open house inspections.

62. Be a mystery shopper

If you enjoy shopping on your own like most introverts do, but get annoyed when you can’t get unbiased opinions, become a mystery shopper and get paid to shop. While there are tons of websites out there that will pay for your services, it’s probably best to sign up with an agency like BestMark. This way you won’t waste time sifting through uninterested clients.

Your job is to report back about your experience at different places like businesses or restaurants, and you’ll be able to get paid $10-$30 per hour just for evaluating someone else’s work!

63. Participate in medical studies

It sounds scary, but joining medical studies is one of the easiest ways to make money online as an introvert because all you have to do is allow doctors and scientists to observe or monitor your consumer behavior over time. As long as they deem you healthy enough and don’t mind answering questions about yourself, it could be an incredible way to earn money by simply participating in their studies. 

64. Get Paid to Exercise

Just because you’re an introvert doesn’t mean you are a couch potato. Even introverts need exercise; how else are you going to stay sharp and have your brain do all that thinking. Believe it or not, some companies will PAY you to exercise and in the process, you’re losing weight! This is a bonus for people who have had to stay home due to COVID and are just starting to get out and about again. You will need to download their app and track your activities to earn points that convert to real dollars when you hit a certain threshold.

Check out companies like Sweatcoin or Evidation where you even get points for meditating (yes, it is classified as an activity), receive relevant health articles and the opportunity to participate in groundbreaking research.

Narrating audiobooks can be a very lucrative career, but it does require some specific skills. Learn how to read aloud effectively. This is the most important skill for any audiobook narrator. Have a strong understanding of grammar and punctuation. You don’t want any errors in your narration. Be sure to produce a clear, consistent tone. Listen to some audiobooks and pay attention to how the narrator’s voice sounds. Try to emulate that sound in your narration. Start by signing up with ACX.com (Amazon/Audible) which serves as a “matchmaking” place for authors and narrators

For Introverts Who Like Neat And Tidy

67. Overnight Stocker

Definitely, a nice side hustle if you like your own company; great part time job for high school or college students. You have to be okay with doing repetitive tasks and are happy to work night owl hours (usually 11 pm to 8 am). You don’t just restock empty shelves, you also give feedback to your supervisor about any damaged goods or merchandise that are on the shelves. Being efficient, accurate with attention to detail shows your supervisor that you take pride in what you do.

68. Archivist

As we move to store information and records from hard copy to digital, the demand for archivists will increase in both the public and private sectors.

Calling all hardcore physics, chemistry and mathematics introverts who are also academically inclined and enjoy research and scientific writing for publication. This role was made for you if you are into astrophysics, astrobiology and cosmology. Not everyone will land a job with NASA but there are opportunities in meteorology, climatology and aeronautical engineering. What could be cooler than to have time to think and play in the areas of calculus, differential equations and linear algebra and solve mysteries of our galaxy (theoretical astronomy).

70. Accountant

If you like numbers and enjoy an intense focus on the work you are doing, then consider being an accountant. Accountancy is a broad definition so if you drill down, you may find yourself the financial controller or manager of a company. Your qualifications also open doors to opportunities as a financial investment advisor. The hours will be longer but you are well remunerated for your expertise. The upside is that you get to show off your analytical and critical thinking skills. As an introvert, you will find it natural to exercise your attention to detail personality as well as the enjoyment of organizing and putting operational systems in place. 

71. Market Research Analyst

This is a great job if you enjoy both diving into the details and simultaneously having a big picture view of the market niche you are researching. You can spot emerging trends in consumer habits before it becomes popular. This means analyzing large amounts of data which can be consumer focused surveys and being able to detect these subtle shifts based on the responses received.

It helps if you have a background in statistics, marketing, or psychology. The other skills required by market research companies are the ability to present your insights in ways that make sense to the decision makers in the company. In effect, you are the storyteller weaving a narrative based on the data that has been analyzed and interpreted by you.

72. Actuary

A good actuary is an asset to any insurance company. You are the person who uses your mathematical/statistical skills to weigh up financial risks for the insurance, health and home insurance products offered to clients. Your skills are in predicting possible outcomes using math and available insurance data and then advising risk mitigation strategies. Actuarial science is designed to price in the risk of an event that the insurance company has to payout on a customer’s claim. Your role is very important in ensuring the financial stability of your company.

73. Landscape Designer

Great for introverts who have a broad knowledge base. You like to be outdoors, have a good knowledge of horticulture/botany, and have an appreciation of construction and engineering.

As usual, that vision has to be communicated to your clients in ways that make sense to them. The soft skills of good verbal and written communication and active listening go a long way to winning a commissioned job.   

74. Environmental Engineer

As an environmental engineer, you work with government agencies, construction and mining companies. This is for introverts who like to problem solve on a large scale using data collected from environmental impact studies, and your understanding of pollution control systems and incorporate natural resource management skills. This skill set is in great demand as the private sector is required to adhere to environmental laws.

Again, good communication skills will go a long way to getting disparate stakeholders like government authorities, public interest groups and corporate executives on the same page. It is a balancing act of protecting the environment while making it economically viable for the company.
