What Are Different Areas for Making Money Fast as a Woman?

Before we dive into the different ways, let us first reflect on the areas we will look into (mind you some are overlapping but should help us structure all ideas):

  • Selling virtual products
  • Selling virtual services
  • Selling physical products
  • Selling physical services

Now let us dive into each what the different ways are and rate each in terms of how fast it is to make money and how well it works for a woman.

A. How to Make Money Fast as a Woman:

Virtual Products

Making money online is a great way for women to earn some extra cash while being able to create a safer environment for themselves. As products are delivered virtually, there is also a lower cost associated with stock-keeping, shipping delays, and other order-fulfillment issues. Lastly the cost to scale is very low – once produced a digital product can be sold thousands of times at little incremental cost – be it through an own site, social media platforms, or online marketplaces.

A1. E-books

This is one of the probably most classical ways to make money online: You can write books leveraging great AI tools like Jasper and then design your own art using Canva. Finally, it is free for you to upload on Amazon to get published as printed books or on Kindle. Truly a great starter!

Aaron’s verdict

I think this is one of the easiest ones to start – having already published my own books, but they are only slowly selling, so don’t expect to become a millionaire overnight. Because they can be published under a pseudonym, women can pursue this passion anonymously if they wish without having to fear harassment.

A2. Online courses (memberships, webinars, etc.)

Leverage your expertise by developing and marketing digital courses on a subject in which you have deep knowledge or hands-on experience. Platforms like Thinkific, Kajabi, Udemy, Skillshare, and Teachable make it easy for you to create content and sell an online course. Courses typically pay well, so as long as you have the audience, this is a really good way of building a successful online business.

Aaron’s verdict

One of the best ways of to make money online we believe, especially once you have already an audience. So perhaps something to consider as a bolt-on on a blog or a freelancing business (if people cannot buy your service because you are sold out, you can scale through selling a course). Why this is nice also for women? Because you do not need to show your face – you can do a complete voice-over-only presentation style course.

A3. Stock photos

This is a nice way to turn a hobby to capture and sell high quality photos online using your smartphone or camera and then license them for stock photography websites such as Shutterstock and AdobeStock. Create an account on these platforms and submit photos online that are of high quality and comply with their guidelines. It’s as simple as that.

Aaron’s verdict

This one is relatively easy to start from an equipment point of view (a smartphone is often sufficient, although a camera is better) and you can have this up an running in just a few weeks, however, it does require a good eye and some skill. It probably takes time to scale up so don’t expect a huge income from this quickly, but rest assured this is one of those businesses that work well for women as your identity can remain hidden.

A4. Digital art

Create unique digital artwork, then design prints and products to sell digital printables on websites such as Society6, Redbubble, or Zazzle.

Aaron’s verdict

As everyone is creative (I firmly believe this), it should be easy to start up. However generating a lot of extra cash will take a lot of time and effort, unless you get very lucky with one of your artworks. On the plus side: once uploaded, these should generate passive income. However, you can be anonymous, so a definite plus for women!

A5. Podcasts

Talk about any topic that captures your curiosity, then upload it to platforms such as Apple Podcasts, Soundcloud or Stitcher for global consumption. Leverage advertising solutions to capitalize on this platform and start earning money from it, a social media presence and advertising on various social media posts is generally a good idea to radiate your podcast.

Podcasts to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Podcasts to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Aaron’s verdict

This one is tricky as it needs a good idea, equipment for good quality, patience to scale up, and potentially exposes you to a lot of harassment as a woman. Hence it is not our preferred choice, although to be fair there are many successful female podcasts.

A6. Music tracks

Compose original music tracks, then upload them to music libraries like Audiojungle or Pond5. These websites offer access to thousands of potential buyers looking for high-quality soundtracks that they can use to enhance their creative works. Don’t just think complex music, but also sound effects and sound loops. Of course if your songs are ready for consumptions, platforms such as Spotify might also be a great way to commercialize your music.

Aaron’s verdict

Composing music requires equipment, software, and talent. Once you have everything finally going though, you can relatively easily monetize it (especially leveraging social), and keep yourself anonymous if wanted.

A7. Software

Develop software applications and tools, then sell them on websites such as CodeCanyon or ThemeForest.

Software to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Aaron’s verdict

Programming does require significant technical skill and interest in e.g., coding and the like. Although the IT industry has been known to have a non-inclusive side towards women, this way to make money does allow you to hide your identity should you want to stay anonymous. But because there have been many cases of (online) harassment of female programmers and IT professionals, we give this only 2 out of 5 stars for suitability for women. We hope this will change more strongly in the future.

A8. YouTube channel

Having your own youtube channel and growing your audience allows you to generate multiple income streams: once you reach enough followers, you can get monetized, meaning YouTube will pay you for posting your content. In addition (and before you get monetized), you can use your YouTube channel to promote your products, and other people’s products and grow a following that you can direct to e.g., your Patreon.

YouTube channel to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Aaron’s verdict

Overall we believe this one is easy to start, although it requires a lot of dedication and creativity in order to build a successful channel. Once you have the necessary followers, though, there are plenty of ways to earn a lot of extra money online.

A9. Plugins and extensions

Code plugins and extensions for WordPress and Squarespace, then sell them on websites such as CodeCanyon or ThemeForest.

Plugins and extensions to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Plugins and extensions to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Aaron’s verdict

This approach does take significant technical skill – you can learn them easily online with a lot of free resources, but it does take interest in e.g., coding and the like. Due to the earlier mentioned attitude towards women, we give this only 2 out of 5 stars for suitability for women.

A10. Websites

Use platforms such as WordPress or Squarespace to design professional websites, then offer your services to potential clients. A website as opposed to a software or plugin requires more graphical/design elements. It can be interesting for those that are interested in the technical site, but also want to include a creative element.

Websites to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Websites to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Aaron’s verdict

Similar to other platforms, it is easy to create your profile to reveal as much (or as little) about you as you feel comfortable. Leading website templates are used thousands of time, hence this is a good way to earn extra money quickly and of course it can be scaled easily without additional cost.

A11. Mobile apps

Develop mobile applications, then monetize them through in-app purchases or advertising revenue. Platforms such as AppyPie and BuildFire allow you to create apps that are compatible with both iOS and Android devices, making it easy for users to download them.

Mobile apps to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Mobile apps to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Aaron’s verdict

Probably only a smaller subset of people have the skills it takes to code apps – but of course you can assemble a team – just note it takes relative long time, investment, and endurance to scale this until it generates significant extra money for you.

A12. Printables

Create and sell printables like planners, calendars, and worksheets. A print on demand marketplace such as Etsy, Creative Market and Zazzle makes it easy for you to design and upload your creations to the marketplace. These digital products are great for those looking for a low-cost way to start their own business.

Printables to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Printables to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Aaron’s verdict

An easy business to start for anyone, however you will not earn a lot of money immediately, but is a good step to learn how to sell products online.

A13. Graphics and templates

Take advantage of the digital age and create a lucrative business by designing engaging graphics and selling digital printables on Etsy, Creative Market and Zazzle or Canva. Consider using a focus groups to find out from your socials following, which products would be the most needed and help you stay up to date on current customer needs.

Aaron’s verdict

This is another business with which you can not earn money fast as a woman, but one that you can scale and work on your own schedule – great also for a stay at home mom.

A14. Online magazines

Write articles for online magazines, then publish them for free on websites such as Medium or Issuu. This is a great way to get your name out there and promote yourself as a writer. Plus, you can also monetize your content through advertising or affiliate links.

Online magazines to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Online magazines to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Aaron’s verdict

Probably one of the more difficult choices for an online business, as you need radiation and followership. Better as a step-out from a blog.

A15. Blogging

Start your own blog and monetize it through affiliate links, sponsored posts, or advertising. Platforms such as  WordPress or Squarespace make it easy to create a professional website that you can use to share your thoughts with the world. Plus, you can also build an email list of readers who will follow along with your journey.

Aaron’s verdict

This one is very easy to start and safe (can be anonymous) for a woman, however, if you quickly need more money, this one is probably too slow for you.

A16. Personal brand

Be your own brand as social media influencer. Platforms such as OnlyFans or Patreon allow you to create monetizable communities selling your own brand. (Read here more about Hot to make money on OnlyFans in 2023). Choose online platforms that fit your brand and audience, e.g., Instagram, Pinterest, TikTok. You can also create your own online platform, and step-by-step built your own online business empire. Your audience will also be your focus groups to research good selling products on any particular subject.

Aaron’s verdict

This one takes consistency, time, and passion. But no matter your background or skills, anyone can become an influcener, however you will need to post frequently on your social media account.

B. How to Make Money Fast as a Woman:

Virtual Services

Moving from products to services allows you to sell your skill and expertise in a safe environment you can control: as there is no need to physically deliver the service (as opposed to e.g., cleaning, dog sitting, in-person-coaching), women can feel safe knowing they are not exposed to potentially dangerous situations. What is more, because of the added comfort of being able to deliver the services from home (and often on our own time schedule), they are a great way to earn money on the side while looking after children, and loved ones, or having a full-time job. As over time, these online businesses can scale through the addition of other remote staff, they are fantastic to generate a significant income in the longer term and become a business owner.

B1. Voice-overs & narration

Use your voice to create audio clips, then offer your services on websites such as Fiverr or Voices.com.

Aaron’s verdict

Tutoring services can be especially lucrative for those who are looking for extra income while having the flexibility to keep to your own schedule. However before you offer tutoring services, remember it takes time to really establish and scale, and harassment by students is a possibility as you share your video/voice.

B4. Social media management

Aaron’s verdict

Our biggest objection to being a virtual assistant is it directly translates your time to the extra cash you make, so we suggest you think about scaling and hiring other virtual assistants.

B6. Data entry

Enter data into spreadsheets for businesses as a virtual assistant, then offer your services on websites such as Fiverr or Upwork. This is an excellent way as it does not require any special skills or previous experience, but takes time until you can generate more money.

Also here the biggest objection is it directly translates your time to the extra cash you make, so make sure to scale to achieve a truly passive income.

B7. Website design & development

Create websites for businesses, then offer your services on Fiverr or Upwork. You can use ready-made platforms such as Squarespace, Wix, and WordPress to speed up the process!

After an initial ramp up period this can grow into a sustainable business to earn money, however beware of the anti-female sentiment in the tech industry, and if even only you might have to proof yourself more for customers to come with their business to you.

B8. Image tagging

Provide businesses with image tagging services, then offer your services on Fiverr or Upwork. This is an excellent way to start make money online many companies that need help categorizing and organizing images for their websites and socials accounts.

You need a bit of patience to really scale, and per-task rates are low, so do not expect to make money quickly from this.

B9. Bookkeeping & accounting

Provide comprehensive financial organization and accounting services to ensure the success of their venture: Budgeting, auditing, creating financial statements and tracking expenses are just some of the services you could provide. Intial offering can be done via Fiverr or Upwork.

B17. Online personal shopping

SEO is easy to learn but hard to master, and competition is big (and advantaged male), so perhaps something you can combine with one of the other ways to make money – for example freelance writing.

B21. Content marketing (UGC)

It is a business women can easily do, but unless you make it “faceless” risk for stalking and harassment is high, as with any video creation.

B22. Affiliate marketing

Promote products or services on behalf of an affiliate to earn a commission from each sale. Big affiliate networks like Clickbank connect companies with affiliate marketeers.

Affiliate marketing to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Aaron’s verdict

Another one that is easy to learn but hard to master, and if you need to expose yourself for selling products on a social platform it can be problematic as a woman.

C. How to Make Money Fast as a Woman: Physical Products

Physical products are probably the most tangible things to sell for small businesses. And you can still sell online! We cannot attempt to list all possible products so let us look into a few particularly popular ones. One thing to be wary of though: physical products do come with their own risks, be it higher cost for manufacturing (for every single unit, and there are little economies of scale!), cost for stock-keeping, cost and risk of shipment, and potential returns and damages.

C1. Print-on-demand

Design custom t-shirts, tumblers, and puzzles (really anything!) using online software such as Printful and then selling online on websites like Etsy or Redbubble, or your own site and make money through a retail arbitrage.

This is great for women. However, you need to find your own unique niche due to stiff competition, and marketing will be critical for you.

C15. Dropshipping

This is a hugely popular one, selling physical products that you do not produce, and without keeping inventory: using fulfillment companies such as Amazon FBA and Shopify, you can sell physical products while minimizing risks.

D. How to Make Money Fast as a Woman: Physical Services

And here we are with the physical services. Some of them might seem very taxing at first, but there is a benefit in the simplicity: they can be easy to start and scale up, e.g., a cleaning or pressure washing service. One thing to consider in physical services is that women will be the most exposed to the environment with this type of business and has such are potentially exposed to harassment and dangerous situations. That being said with the right preparation and set-up (think of managing the business and hiring someone to actually provide the service), many risks are mitigated. Because you are serving much real-life (and often dirty!) problems with these types of services, it is relatively easy to find customers. So let us take a look at what the most popular services are and how they deliver easy, fast, money-making for women!

D1. Pressure washing service

Offer pressure washing services for homes, decks, and driveways. You can offer this via Fiverr or Upwork. Probably one of our favorite ways to make money offline through a service, but initial cost for pressure washing equipment is not to be underestimated.Pressure washing service to make money fast online (Image created with Canva)

Aaron’s verdict

While there is the risk of “in person”, you will be working outside which should provide somewhat protection, and you can scale to a team for extra saftey.

Working alone inside someone else’s home adds additional risk for women, so consider adding (male) coworkers or working only for women (as they might have the same safety concerns. Offer a “women for women” service.

D3. Mobile car washing service

While this business requires some “in person” visits, you can easily add a safety person, also your visits should be short and infrequent enough, and can be further de-risked through initial in-office/public space meetings.

D11. Hair styling service

Provide hair styling services to clients, then offer your services on Fiverr or Upwork.

Safer if provided woman-to-woman, however having to enter another person’s home is always risky.

D12. Home staging

As you work for businesses or sellers in a “official function”, you can easily de-risk this. However remember to take someone with you in person.

A Final Thought Making Money Online with Your Own Business – It Doesn’t Always Have to be an Online Store or Online Surveys

No matter which way to make money you are focusing on, there is one common denominator: you need to make sure that the business can continue running even if you are not physically present. This is why in this list, we did not talk about online surveys. (Taking online surveys can earn you a but extra, but it is not scaleable). And this is not only true for taking online surveys, but also for playing online games.

Be it through online marketing, as a freelance writer or selling products through dropshipping and capturing retail arbitrage, you have to create a system which works for you and your goals.

Aim for cracking 6 figures in your first year in business – and don’t worry if you don’t achieve it. You will have achieved a lot more regardless, compared to aiming to low. By the way, 6 figures is not that much money to earn in a year, if you break it down into monthly and weekly targets. In an upcoming blog I will break that one down for you step by step, so stay tuned.

For now, think about what best aligns with your skills, interests, risk appetite, lifestyle needs. We’ll soon release a free worksheet here on our website to help you think through your options. Take it step by step, consistency, not speed is key here!

And don’t forget once you have earned money, invest it (check out our beginner’s guide) and build your wealth for a secure future!
